Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Ruidoso - Mountainview Escape

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, Gameroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The view at this cabin is spectacular and possibly one of the best around. Relaxing on the deck and looking out at the beauty of Sierra Blanca and the pines is awesome and can hardly be matched. You are also able to enjoy the picturesque view from the indoors, through the floor to ceiling windows.

The cabin is roomy, has a very pleasant and open floor plan (it even has large bedrooms) and still has a cozy feel.

Lower level is living room, kitchen, full bathroom, and master bedroom. 2nd level has 2 large bedrooms (one room has a king bed, other room has a queen and a full bed), large full bathroom, and a gameroom with a pool table and 2 twin beds. There is access to the deck from the master bedroom, and access to an upper deck from the gameroom.

The combination of the openness, the convenient location, and the spectacular view make this cabin a very desirable rental. You are sure to love it!

About Annette Cook

This cabin has been in our family for over 30 years. My husband and I have just recently taken over ownership from my parents. My 3 brothers who have a construction business in Lubbock built the cabin. Family and friends have enjoyed the cabin for many years and we wanted it to remain in the family. We enjoyed our trips to the cabin so much that we always hated to leave! We hope that guest who stay there will enjoy it as much as we have.

Annette Cook purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Annette Cook chose New Mexico

We always enjoyed coming to Ruidoso because of its spectacular beauty! We enjoyed going snow skiing, golfing, the horse races, and just simply being in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

I can't say enough about the spectacular view!

Beautiful home, just like the pictures...

  • 5 of 5

My children (ages 24, 21 & 20) and I stayed here for the entire Thanksgiving 2014 week, and the home was exactly what we were hoping for. Although we had a little trouble finding it in the dark on the night we arrived (hint...it's the home on the RIGHT of the propane tank), we were very happy the minute we walked in the door. Opening the blinds the next morning and seeing what we'd missed the night before was a wonderful treat!

We enjoyed the game room, the games (although we brought plenty of our own) and the fireplace. There was no snow, and some days were pretty warm (high 60s), but we built a fire most nights just for ambiance. There was unsplit wood under the deck that we didn't feel like splitting, so we bought a few bundles in town. Funny story...our home is 800 miles from the cabin, and the wood bundles were from a town not an hour away from where we live!

Because we stayed for an entire week, we had LOTS of luggage and daily groceries to bring in, and we couldn't have stayed in this particular cabin had it not been for the automatic luggage lift. Even the daily treks up and down the stairs without baggage was a challenge...my and my youngest son's knees aren't in the best shape, but it was a small price to pay for such a great house.

The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. We regularly bought things at the store only to return and find there was some already at the cabin! Instructions throughout the home were clear. We had to unload the dishwasher for our first use, and there seemed to be a short in one of the stove burners - couldn't keep it on, so we just used another - but everything else was in perfect working order. We cooked most of our meals, but the restaurant recommendations on the fridge was a nice touch.

Our week was filled with activities...leaving early and coming home late, then playing games until the wee hours of the morning...so we didn't spend any time on the deck. We shopped downtown Ruidoso, visited Roswell and Carlsbad and sled the dunes at White Sands. We also spent one afternoon just exploring mountain roads in Arabela. On our last night, we stepped outside and there were 8 deer just below us! We fed them with the corn provided, and the next morning, they were there again waiting for breakfast!

We had hoped to ski, but the lack of snow didn't lessen our enjoyment. I would highly recommend this area and this rental and hope to return!

The cabin was just as advertised "MOUNTAIN ESCAPE ". We wanted the rustic outdoor feel an a get away from the busy life. We got too the cabin an an it was breathe taking an time stopped. The view is spectacular, the air is heavenly,an let's not forget the deer come to you. Beautiful place to be for any occasion.

We love this house! It's a large house but feels cozy. There is nothing you could want for. The deck alone makes it hard to go anywhere else in Ruidoso. The morning and evening visits by the deer make it feel like you're in an enchanted forest. It's very quiet in the mountains away from traffic but such easy access. It's the best!

Great accomandations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mountain Escape Cabin for 3 days and it was wonderful. The cabin is in a great location, it's a short distance from anything you may need. The cabin itself was beautiful and had everything that you could ask for. There are several stairs that lead up to the entrance, but thanks to the luggage lift this was not a big deal. We would definitely stay here again!!

Awesome View had the very best time!

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing not to far from town, when we arrived we were greeted by a family of deer. It was the best way to start off our stay, we stayed for Easter and our family couldn't have been happier. The house looks just like the pictures, fully stocked kitchen, we went shopping and when we actually cooked the house already had a everything we needed. The house is very spacious plenty of room we all had a blast playing pool and sitting out on the deck cooking out. Overall had a really amazing time, completely recommend staying here 100%. There are quite a bit of stairs to climb but they have the lift for luggage so it's not really a problem.
