Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in New Mexico

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Welcome to our Red Log Cabin! You can enjoy Ruidoso's peace and pine-scented mountain air from the spacious deck spanning the front of the cabin, where you can see grazing deer wandering through the valley, caw at a crow, or just enjoy our peaceful woodsy neighborhood as you relax or man the grill. As you enter the mudroom, deposit your clothes, luggage & groceries and move into the open living space. With 180 degrees worth of windows, you get the view inside as well as on the patio and a great area for hanging out - the open kitchen, dininng and living area with huge open wood trusses, reclaimed wood floors, elk antler chandelier over a 10-person table, and an old wood stove under open stairway to the loft. For privacy, 2 queen bedrooms nestle behind the tub/shower bath with washer/dryer - that is unless someone decides to plunk out a tune on the electric organ. Upstairs is a couple of recliners and another queen bed and tub bath. Just a brisk walk or short drive to downtown & miles of shopping or to the grocery in opposite direction. About 1300 square feet of enjoyment with central heat, one full bath downstaris and a tub bath upstairs, DVD/VCR/TV up & down - no cable but you can play CDs on DVD players. No WiFi. Plenty of fans but usually opening or closing windows to breezes keep cabin cool in summer. Electric mattress pads on downstairs beds & heat rising keeps you toasty in winter. Sorry ... NOT handicap accessible and NO pets please. Sheets, towels and pillows provided as well as starter set of toilet paper, paper towels, dish & laundry soap and coffee.

Suitability:
  • children welcome

Quiet, relaxing weekend away.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend away at the Red Cabin, it was relaxing, peaceful, and enjoyable. We took our family of 6 for the July 4th weekend, we had plenty of room to be comfortable, enjoyed the deck and playing lots of games and family time. There was also a lot of wildlife in the area so or kids got to see several deer, a fox, many birds and even an Elk from the deck and yard. There were plenty of dishes and pans for cooking and dining as well as a grill on the back porch, washer and dryer if needed and the 2 bathrooms was nice also. It was a bit hot this weekend and the cabin has no AC, but that's very common in Ruidoso.

Thanks

A real log cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this property! It has a big great room so everyone is together even if one is cooking, or whatever. It really feels like a cabin and not just like the kind of rental home you could find anywhere. It's a little bit of an older home, but we felt like that gave it some of its charm. The beds aren't super comfortable, but they are fine! The owner is really easy to work with, and getting into the property and check out instructions are a breeze!

Perfect balance

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is just rustic enough to give the impression of a mountain cabin, but convenient enough so we didn't have to rough it. We cooked on the grill, fed the deer, and enjoyed a DVD. The neighborhood is quiet enough so naps and sleeping were a breeze. We would definitely go back.

Cabin Review: Dec. 2015

  • 4 of 5

BJ: Found the cabin warm and comfortable, with well stocked kitchen for cooking. Saw woodpeckers, other birds, and deer coming daily for visits. Enjoyed the washer and dryer being on site. Found the road icy getting up to the cabin, sand and chains would have made it easier.
