Great Location

  • 5 out of 5
Returned home again from a great 3 night stay. Right on the river. Nicely furnished cabin with probably the best view of the river in Ruidoso. Cool crisp mornings with a cup of coffee on the deck is hard to beat.

Owner's Response: We would have to agree about the view of the river from our deck. We've always thought it was the best!!! Our location cannot be beat -- secluded, yet close to town. Accessible all winter long too. Come try us out during any season. So happy you enjoyed your time there.

Below Expectations

  • 1 out of 5
1. The mildew smell was extremely strong. It took a trip to the IGA, two days of treatment and two cans of air spray to make the cabin livable. I know it is a cabin in the woods, but that should not prevent it being in a better condition. Two years ago we rented a similar sized cabin in the rain forest side of the big island in Hawaii for the same amount that had no mildew smell and it was first class. Your product should be graded between high third class and low second class.

2. The dead bolt on the rear door malfunctioned and we had to remove and oil it to be able to have safe egress to the rear of the property in case of an emergency. This is my friend reinstalling the lock.
3. The right sliding window to the deck was unlocked upon our arrival.

4. The left sliding window to the deck was unlocked upon our arrival and the lock is inoperable. It remains unlocked.

5. The wands to both of the blinds in the secondary bedroom are missing causing extreme aggravation when changing position.

6. One door of the clothes closet in the secondary bedroom is missing.

7. I had to replace three burned out bulbs (with those supplied by you).

8. Both the sink and the bathtub drain extremely slowly in the secondary bathroom.

9. The coffee pot is very old, and although it functioned, the lid is broken and the filters provided were the wrong size.

These are the things that come to mind as I type this, I'm sure there were others. All in all, it was somewhat embarrassing to me to provide the accommodations to friends from Germany, knowing that Germans are extreme in their need for order and cleanliness. Had I been able to review the property prior to making our contract I would have chosen another option.

Owner's Response: This is our very first -- and only -- bad review after two years of doing this. All the others have been very positive, so this came as a shock! We will be returning there shortly and you may rest assured that we will be looking into each and every one of your points.

Very nice home on the banks of the Rio Ruidoso

  • 5 out of 5
This home was perfect for our short 4 night stay. Located up the canyon from town with the Rio Ruidoso in the back yard, it was a spectacular view and very comfortable. We had deer in the back yard one morning and deer in the front yard in the evening. We love Ruidoso and our stay at this home was ideal. We would love to stay at this location again in our future visits to Ruidoso.

MOST AMAZING VIEW IN RUIDOSO

  • 5 out of 5
Our visit to this cozy home was exactly what we were hoping for! We were looking for a home on the river and this one could not have been more perfect! We sat outside watching the hummingbirds and feeding the deer from our hands and spent a week totally relaxing on the river. The home was comfortable and fully equipped and everything we wanted or needed was provided. The owners were in touch and accommodating and we certainly plan to rent this precious place again!! Thanks for the information...your description was completely accurate!

Lovely getaway spot

  • 5 out of 5
We found this to be an excellent stay; quiet; secluded, yet minutes away from town. Furnishings were comfortable. Loved the deck. Sitting out and drinking coffee in the mornings was very relaxing. Would suggest some safety marking on the steps down to the deck, though, for us old folks with bad eyesight. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
