David and Barbara Benedict purchased this cabin in 2012
This has been described by many as having the best view on the river. We agree!
Ruidoso Downs horse racetrack. All American Futurity (Worlds Richest Horserace) - Labor Day. Cabin is close to town, shopping, restaurants, fishing, hiking, gambling, and other activities.
I saw a mouse in the kitchen. Called the person responsible. She said she didn't know what to tell me. Later that night, the carbon monoxide alarm went off. That was scary. Had to sleep with the windows open and it was freezing.
Views are beautiful though.
The house was cozy-close to many things. But in a quiet neighborhood. It was fun exploring the river and feeding the numerous deer in the yard!
My husband & I & our 9 year old Akita just spent almost 2 months at this property when my husband was sent from Albuquerque to help out at the Ruidoso hospital. We had stayed at various other Vrbo rentals in Ruidoso & were happy with them, but after staying at this home on the river, all other rentals paled in comparison. The owners were so nice & accomodating & the house was homey, clean & comfortable with everything needed to make it feel like home. The location was amazing. Private, back off the road in the woods, but close to downtown, and the decks overlooking the Ruidoso River were stunning & so peaceful & tranquil! We had wonderful daily walks along the river with our dog & quite certain it's his favorite place as well.😁And almost daily, we had 5 to 7 deer strolling through the yard, many eating right out of my hand! Would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a fabulous weekend or extended stay in Ruidoso. We will definately stay here next time we come to Ruidoso!
We so enjoyed getting to stay here. The location was great. Beautiful home and area. Feeding the deer with my parents and dogs was so fun and special. The back deck was wonderful, listening to the river while we sat outside or at the dining table was awesome. Can't wait to go back!! Thanks so much! 🎀
The cabin was was clean and well stocked. The description in the listing was accurate and I very much appreciated the call ahead of time from the owner. The front yard was perfect for taking my and grandson and dog to play, it was large and secluded. The back deck view overlooking the the river was spectacular!!! We had a great family vacation and plan on staying at the Benedict's cabin again. Thank You for sharing your place with us.
My husband and I were looking for something that was quiet, peaceful and in a good area. This house fit that bill completely. Sitting on the deck watching the deer and hummingbirds and listening to the river just feet away was a very relaxing way to spend our evenings. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.
