About Vicki Moffatt
About Dave and Vicki Moffatt Vicki and I live in Austin Texas. I'm a Boston native and she's a Texan-so we have an interesting time figuring out each other's accents! I work in the leadership development field and Vicki taught private voice but is now retired. Visiting the cabin 3-4 times a year to stay and vacation/work is one of our favorite things to do. Vicki is a highly creative and hard-working renovation 'hobbyist', and along with other tradesmen, this property took over 4 months to renovate after purchase. Me-I'm the janitor and handyman. We don't have any kids, but we do have two dogs and one cat. We purchased this property in 2011 and just before renovating the main house in 2016 as a vacation home during July and the beginning of August, we named the entire property "Forest Houses" and named the main house "Forest House" as our new vacation home. We also have our original vacation home, also listed on HomeAway, that we purchased in 2009 called "Teddy Cloud" cabin. Why Dave and Vicki Moffatt chose New Mexico When I first moved out west from Boston I ended up in New Mexico, and used to ride my motorcycle up into Cloudcroft. I promised myself I would one day buy a cabin in the Sacramento Mountains, and finally did it! New Mexico is a special place for us-my Mom and niece live in Las Cruces. Cloudcroft is a perfect getaway for us because it's so small and relatively undeveloped (compared to nearby Ruidoso). Getting up to the mountains is something we plan for and anticipate all year.
Vicki Moffatt purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Vicki Moffatt chose Cloudcroft
When we bought this property we loved that it had one main house with 3 A Frame houses just up the hill. It had been neglected and lived in hard, so much had to be done to bring it back to life. It took four months of living in the main house and working 14+ hour days with numerous things going on at the same time to see some sparkle but we finally made it happen. We thought about turning the main house into a vacation home for about 3 years or so, but on July 10, 2016, we just said "Let's do it!" and so began our adventure with this new vacation cabin! Allot of TLC went into the planning and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have. We want to share the experience with you in this cozy and quirky house with it's big block wood spiral staircase, glass tiled fireplace, stage area in the downstairs bedroom and rather large soaking tub in the upstairs bath. We love this cabin and our long term residents just up the hill enjoy their A Frames, as our residents have lived there for quite a while. This is a quiet family or romantic setting, in what we consider to be one of the most unique and still quant villages in the beautiful forest covered mountain setting in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Nearly 9000 ft. keeps the mountain air fresh and clean and cool, so much of the year, that many of our neighboring cities residents come to enjoy the beautiful weather.

The place is nice and just kind of wonky and surprising. Great locations for the attractions in the area.
Thank you Grant! I like how you explained our cabin, we want it to be a unique experience. Vicki Moffatt
Quaint cabin with a great view and perfect for a small group or family!
We enjoyed the solitude that their cabin gave us during our short stay. We wish that we could have stayed longer. It was nice being able to get away for a while and relax knowing we didn’t have to stay in a hotel. The kids loves the place, I think more than we did. The staircase was very unique and bedrooms gave us plenty of room for our family of 5. You can’t beat the price for the location!
Thank you Joshua! We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed it and that your kids enjoyed it too. We appreciate that you chose our cabin for your visit and we hope you'll come up with your family again some time! Vicki Moffatt
Wonderful mountain getaway
The house was well furnished and the kitchen had everything you would need for a normal week. We we’re there for Thanksgiving so we did bring a lot of our own things for such a big meal but it was great! The Netflix was nice to have on the tv. The only downside was there are a lot of stair but it was definitely worth it.
Charming getaway in the clouds...
We found Forest House an absolutely enjoyable retreat. Everything you could possibly need in a home away from home. A unique property with great space, charm and a stunning view! The only downside, was having to leave. We can't wait until we can return!
Property was just as described, and the amenities were excellent!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Forest House, especially the views from the windows!
Thank you so much! We love hearing how much you enjoyed Forest House and the large windows to take in that forest view. We appreciate you took the time to let us know. Vicki Moffatt
