About Lisa Haag

My husband and I live in the Houston area. We are avid pilots and live at an airport. We love to fly, ski, and travel. We have a dog and a cat that both travel with us. We own a business called Federal Wage and Labor Law Institute which makes and sells labor law posters.

Lisa Haag purchased this cabin in 1975

Why Lisa Haag chose New Mexico

Mark's family vacationed in Ruidoso from San Antonio throughout his childhood. He loved the quaintness of the town and the skiing. Not to metion some of the best horse racing is here and a beautiful new casino and resort. Ruidoso has something for everyone.

What makes this cabin unique

The location is convenient to the Ski Apach resort, The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino, and Ruidoso Downs Horse Race Track. You can also walk only one street to enter the National Forest. The views are spectacular, and the mountain air is refreshing. This is truly a place to get away from it all.

Ruidoso retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property on the mountain side! We relaxed, enjoyed grilling on the deck and watching the wildlife (deer, raccoons and hummingbirds). Had everything we needed except maybe lounge chairs on the deck, though we did love the comfortable recliner and rocker in the living area. Speedy return of our damage deposit. We will definitely come back!

Mountain top Cabin

We have never done anything like this before and we had a wonderful time! The house was very clean, with beautiful views. The house was perfect for us to set on the porch and enjoy the cool breeze. We will definitely do this again and probably bring guests with us!!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this cabin twice in two years. It is clean, stocked and very comfortable...possibly the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in away from home. The only advice I can give is in hot weather to start the AC early of the morning. The AC will maintain a cool temperature but has difficulty cooling the space once it has become hot. Otherwise great. We will be renting there every chance we get.

Escape to mountain air

  • 2 of 5

I usually look for a place with a view of mountains. This met those expectations, but it could use some updating. It was difficult with no wifi, we thought we could manage. We also had some bathroom issues and the handyman we called, said he probably couldn't fix it. So at various times of the day water pressure seemed to very low, and toilet wouldn't flush.

Owner's Response: I am sorry about the plumbing issues. Evidently, residue from the hard water was clogging some of the pipes and fixtures. As soon as it was brought to my attention, it was fixed. There should be no more water pressure problems. I want you to keep in mind that we have never claimed that this cabin is fancy, hence the price. It is as advertised in the description.
