Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cabin in New Mexico - 4 Bears Cabin

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.

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.

Family loved the home! Very cozy and lots of room for the family to enjoy and relax. Kitchen very well stocked! Would recommend a TV in the living area, other than that it is a wonderful place for family to get together.

Owner's Response: So glad your family had a good time at 4 Bears Cabin. We welcome your group back anytime you wish. We have an ongoing debate over another TV at the cabin since we have 3...so far we're deadlocked with a 2-2 vote! Thanks for your input...it will give my side another argument for a TV!

Very nice place.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin turned out to be perfect for our family reunion. Beds were comfortable and clean even for our most demanding travelers. The children couldn't get enough playing in the snow during the whole weekend. There was enough space for everyone. Would recommend and would stay again. The only thing missing is a TV in the living room. Owners did accommodate us with a late checkout. If snowing you will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome, very clean. Everything was beautiful including the Home & views! Kitchen was stocked very well! Lots & lots of space. We loved the outside deck to hang out & play cards. The older kids & teenagers loved walking around outdoors, we even got visitors one morning which was pretty cool! ( deer) only thing that was kinda a problem for us (our fault) we had two toddlers & since it has downstairs & upstairs we had to be after them making sure they wouldn't fall.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin was clean and roomy. Our grandchildren had a great time exploring the outdoors and enjoyed the deer who came up to the cabin. We even saw a bear on the way to hike at Bonita Lake!!! Very accommodating, beautiful, peaceful cabin.
