About Mary Edwards

We purchased this property on our 25 wedding anniversary. It turned out to be the best gift we ever gave each other.

Mary Edwards purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mary Edwards chose New Mexico

We have vacationed in this area for many, many years and have always loved the climate and quaintness of Ruidoso.

What makes this cabin unique

It's cool in the summer so a great way to escape the heat of your home location. The winters provide days of peaceful snowfall as well as weather pretty enough to enjoy the deck in the afternoons.

Third Time and Still The Best

  • 5 of 5

As always. Wayne and Mary's cabin is a home away from home. There simply is no reason to stay anywhere else.

Quiet, inviting, clean

  • 5 of 5

Sweet, beautiful house nestled among the trees off a paved road. House next door was close by but we still felt like it was very private. Very clean, good-size comfy beds. Lovely covered porch to sit out in the rain. Deck and swing to sit under the trees too! One level which made it easy for mom. Felt like a home-away-from home and not just a personality-less rental. Owner immediately responsive to satellite tv issue. Definitely a jewel, and definitely would go again.

Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The five of us had a great time in Ruidoso and enjoyed staying at your cabin. We loved the location and everything we needed was available. The weather was perfect and we had a great time shopping, at the horse races, gambling at the casino and enjoyed the deer, elk and turkey every morning. The pictures and description of the cabin were very accurate. Mary (the owner) was a joy to work with. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Cute, cozy, IMMACULATE, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin! We came Memorial Day weekend for our sons baseball tournament and made it a mini vacation while we were at it! It's just as cute as it is in the pictures! It was very very clean! The location is great! It's far enough off the road that it's nice and peaceful but close enough to everything you would need. Only about 5-8 mins from downtown. The dear came up to visit us at the deck nearly everyday, our kids loved feeding them! I even had one eat right out of my hand! There was a momma fox that made a den for her and her babies right next to us so we saw them daily as well. We also spotted elk right around the corner from the cabin! If your looking for a peaceful, quiet, relaxing get away and enjoy wildlife, this is the place to be! We will definitely check this cabin first for availability when visiting again!

Absolutely Best Cabin in Ruidoso!

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife and 3 kids (ages 12 to 18) up to Ruidoso for a long weekend to take advantage of all the snow this season and stumbled on this cabin by accident. It was the first time I've ever rented a place that was actually better than I was expecting. The pictures don't do this place justice but the thing that stands out the most was all the attention to detail. From the time we walked in to the time we left, we were completely satisfied with the space and lacked for nothing. We were able to watch Netflix and DirectTV in High-Def! That may seem like a basic commodity, especially when you live in a high-tech city like Austin like we do, but some of the nicest places we've stayed in LA and San Diego and others didn't even offer that level of tech, go figure. The wifi was great too and we were able to actually use our at&t phones because of the installed micro-cell that amplified the signal. The beds were extremely comfortable and had an option to heat our beds which made my wife's night when she discovered this option! The kitchen was very well stocked and there was plenty of firewood to keep the family warm at night. Mary was so great to work with and we loved it so much we extended our stay an extra day.

If you're like me (and my family) and are used to certain creature comforts, this is the place to stay. I honestly can't think of one detail they forgot and wish more people aspired to this standard. We are frequent travelers and this is the first time I've felt compelled to leave feedback but I'm a firm believer that excellence should be rewarded and this place was excellent, without doubt. We will stay here going forward, if available, and we're already looking forward to our next trip!

There's so much more I can say but others have already articulated my sentiments and I certainly echo their statements. Thank you again, Mary, for everything!

There are lots of deer in the area and they love to be fed. If you'd like to attract them up close, bring some deer corn (I always buy whole corn) and throw some out on the ground near the deck.
