Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-15)

4 Bears Cabin is located in the beautiful Sun Valley, Alto, New Mexico area, located about 5 miles north of Ruidoso, New Mexico at an altitude of approximately 7500 ft. The Cabin has approximately 2700 square feet and includes 4 bedrooms, 2 King and 2 Queens, a loft with twin beds and couches, 2 living areas, one upstairs with a beautiful view through a 25 feet of glassed wall and one downstairs with a game area with TV, 3 baths, covered front porch, and a huge back deck overlooking beautiful scenery. Sleeps 10-12 is an excellent vacation retreat suitable for a large family gatherings. No Pets and No Smoking permitted.

4 Bears Cabin features a wood burning stove, log stairs leading up to the loft overlooking the living area. The two main level master suites have French doors opening onto the large back deck that spans the length of the cabin. The deck has beautiful views of the mountains and is an excellent area for relaxing and enjoying the wildlife and birds. A small creek runs through the bottom of the property (in wet weather). Elk, deer, black bears, wild horses, and other wildlife is abundant in the area.

4 Bears Cabin was a dream of 4 best friends from West Texas. After locating our building site in 2000, we waited five years before starting our building project. We chose a custom design log cabin from Real Log Homes and were fortunate to find a great log home representative, Bobby & Diane Springer of Lakehills, Texas. Bobby was a wonderful source for questions and help whenever we needed anything. We highly recommend Bobby and Diane…they made our dream possible. Contact Bobby by a google search for The Texas Logman.

After driving nearly 800 miles every weekend for 2 years to work on the cabin we completed our dream project in 2007. Lots of laughs, bruises, sprains, sore muscles and one or two mashed fingers resulted in the finished project. We had help from family and friends, especially Arnold and Santa George who made the trip with us so many times.

We made lots of mistakes and learned a lot about building before finishing the cabin. Now, we can enjoy the fruits of our labor when we travel to Ruidoso to enjoy a weekend or vacation at the cabin. We are proud to share our home with our guests.

4 Bears Cabin is located at 115 Mogul Rd, Sun Valley, Alto, NM, about 5 miles north of Ruidoso on Hwy 48 (Mechem Drive), across from Alto Country Club. GPS coordinates are (appx.) Lat. 33.414929 and Long. 105.684464. Mogul Road was formerly known as Aspen Road, but the name was changed due to 911 restrictions. If you look for 107 Aspen Road on Google Maps, you should find the location. Be sure to specify Sun Valley as the location.

4 Bears Cabin is close to great golfing, shopping, skiing, Lincoln National Forest, Bonita Lake, Monjeau Lookout, Sierra Blanca, horse racing, casinos, and any outdoor activity you desire.

About Bonnie Turney

4 Bears is owned by 4 lifelong friend, Benny & Bonnie Turney and Lana & Tom Cunningham of Abilene, Texas.

Bonnie Turney purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bonnie Turney chose New Mexico

We chose Sun Valley in Alto (Ruidoso), NM for the cool mountain air, the proximity to great vacation sites, good restaurants, shopping, horse racing, casinos, and the casual atmosphere of a vacation area.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy sitting on the large back deck in the serene mountainous area, viewing wildlife (deer, elk, bears, wild horses) and the variety of beautiful birds. We are close to Spencer Theatre which provides high quality live entertainment on a regular basis.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came with our parents and they had a great time as did we all. Everything was provided and dad enjoyed the wildlife and serenity. We will definitely return.

The perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin which is set in a peaceful neighborhood away from the city lights will treat you to seclusion and breathtaking views. While still allowing you to be close enough to town to run in for another bottle of wine in 15 minutes. The drive to Ski Apache is very short I would say 5minutes to the base of the mountain. With the capacity to sleep 15 people I would not pick any other cabin for my return visits to Ruidoso.

The property was gorgeous and very well stocked and maintained! Plenty of room for all 16 of us!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic vacation site! The house is beautiful and stocked with everything we needed. We had 6 children and 10 adults and had plenty of room. The views from the deck are beautiful, the beds were big and comfy, and there was plenty of parking for 4 vehicles. We will definitely stay here again!
