About the property

1 bathroom, 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4. 2 beds guest room, 1 bed master, 1 in livng rm

This property is a cozy cabin on a hillside nestled in the pines with an unbelievable view! This cabin is very secluded, yet it is in the Village of Cloudcroft. There are lovely views of mountain splendor even inside the cabin through the large picture window. There is a spacious deck for relaxing, viewing and cooking and dining!

The living area is an open area which houses the kitchen, dining area and living area. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living area. The amenities are described herein, however suffice it to say the owners have everything that a lodger needs to have a memorable stay.

The Lodge golf course is a public course. The tee box for the first hole is within a 9 iron away! The course is a blast! It is very affordable and family friendly! Compare to the courses in Ruidoso. The back deck of the house provides an amazing view of the 7th fairway of the Course.

The cabin is next to the road with ample parking. However, the well lighted stairway takes you a good distance from the road where the cabin is in the middle of the woods with a perfect, unspoiled view. Yet, there are stores, restaurants, shops, a gas station, etc. just minutes away.

Great bird watching from the deck where you are level with the tree tops! The lot on the west is a frequent deer hangout and crossing. Elk have been seen crossing through on either side of the cabin as well. It is an amazing place for wildlife. There are houses close by but not next door!

You will be very excited at this cabin and be refreshed after your stay! Thanks for looking!

About Tip & Brenda Kirwan

Owners are responsible and hard working and have put in many hours making this cabin an enjoyable place to relax! Owners have been associated with the property for 32 years. Wonderful memories of the people of the town, sports activities such as golf, restaurants, coziness, heavy slumbers, awesome mornings and great nights!

Tip & Brenda Kirwan purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Tip & Brenda Kirwan chose New Mexico

This property is right in town, on the golf course, yet it is in the woods and very secluded and serene! This is a very unique situation! There is wildlife that goes through the woods near the cabin. Lots of birds including hummingbirds (in the summer) to be viewed from the spacious deck. Just a couple of minutes from downtown! Also, 2 minutes away from the golf course which is fun and affordable.

What makes this cabin unique

Great views of scenery and wildlife from all over the property even though you are in the middle of Cloudcroft and a chip away from the golf course! The Lodge golf course is very fun, extremely affordable and family friendly.

Visited for a long holiday weekend and was not disappointed. Nice quiet area and easy access to town made it great. Relaxed on the large deck and enjoyed the fresh air and view. Can't wait to visit again.

Dreams of a white Christmas came true at this beautiful cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome! It has everything you could ever imagine and more. Beautiful decor, inside and out. Secluded feel but close to everything! We wanted a white Christmas and our wish came true!. Woke up Christmas morning to beautiful snow covered scenery. We enjoyed the local shops and had Christmas brunch at the Lodge. Tip, the owner, is wonderful! I would highly recommend this cabin.

San Antonio

Every aspect exactly as advertised. Peaceful, secluded but close to town w/all amenities included.

  • 5 of 5

First, our travel to Cloudcroft from San Antonio, TX was a disaster. Almost everything that could go wrong, did. Not enough space to tell the whole story but let's just say if it wasn't for the kindness and attention given to us by Tip Kirwan, our dream vacation wouldn't have even happened. Tip went so far above and beyond being "helpful" that I can't describe it. What I can say is that he was a God send and you can deal with him with complete and utter confidence that he is honest, trustworthy and a genuinely great person. I also have to give kudos to Tip''s property managers Don & Sandy Kirschenman for their much needed help and JK Auto & Diesel Towing Service in Carlsbad for also coming to the rescue (Especially John). Now I'm sure you've got the jist of the bad part of our trip. Now for the good part. The Kirwan's property and cabin are heaven on earth. Cozy and quaint but with all the modern conveniences that we can't live without these days. We spent much time out on the wrap around porch/balcony enjoying the views and animals. There were 4 of us and the layout of the cabin more than accomdated each one and our desire for our own space when we wanted it. When we came together, the "living room" area was spacious and very comfortable. All kitchen appliances, dining area, appliances, tv, bathroom, outdoor lighting, heat, fireplace, etc. functioned perfectly. Everything labeled clearly regarding their operation. I could go on and on but the bottom line is that with everything trying to derail us, Tip Kirwan and company saved the day. We will be back and you can rest assured that you will get the same treatment that we did. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the Kirwan's and crew are people of the highest order. You can take that to the bank!

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness, Pat! What a bunch of kind words! We didn't do all that much! Just tried to assist where possible! Brenda's suggestions were timely too! Don and Sandy are very reliable indeed! Brenda is saying that you were undaunted and determined to have a good time in spite of the bad luck. Very true! You left the cabin in great shape and we appreciate that! In sum I think that we can both both attest to the fact that we truly do have many blessings and for that we celebrate Thanksgiving! In Christ's love - he whom we owe the biggest thank you, Tip & Brenda Kirwan
