About Gary and Carol Leeah

Carol and I, three sons and a daughter are from El Paso Texas.We have six grand children. El Paso is a great place to live, with a wonderful year round climate. It does get hot in the summer though! Carol and I are both retired but we keep busy working on the cabin and doing one or two day jobs. Carol is a graduate from UTEP as is our son Jon. I retired my corporate job of 37 years so I could more often enjoy the mild climate of Ruidoso.Joel is a cook at Landry's. CJ also works in the restaurant industry. Our Daughter Nik enjoys training horses up in Maryland.

Gary and Carol Leeah purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Gary and Carol Leeah chose New Mexico

We chose this property because it was close to everything and it had an atmosphere of being alone in the forest, but the movie theater was a short jaunt away. We liked the single level but it was on the side of a hill with a sixteen foot elevation off of our wrap around deck.

What makes this cabin unique

Our place has a redwood deck that wraps around one half of the cabin. It also has a private deck off of the Master Bedroom with a hot tub.

Gypsie Trip

  • 4 of 5

House is very nice. Lots of room and most everything we needed was there. Home was clean and bedding and towels were a very nice quality. On the down side lack of lighting in living and dinning areas made it very difficult to play cards in the evening. Also a toaster is needed in the kitchen and mirrors in the bedrooms. Four women trying to get ready with only mirrows in the two bathrooms was frustrating.

Owner's Response: There are mirrors in every room and the two bathrooms. There is a full length on inside of the closet door in the middle bedroom. We even changed the check in check out dates a day before arrival To accommodate your request. It is a nice cabin in the Ruidoso forest. We do take your responses seriously and will look into all legitimate improvements!

The cabin has all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the deck and grilling. The hot tub was a hit with grand babies. Great bed for sleep and well equipped kitchen and bath. Have stayed here 4 times now. Always a pleasure!

Great place to stay!

This cabin was awesome! Spacious, well maintained, and very clean. Gary and Carol Leeah have thought of everything in providing a home away from home feel. Not to mention it was close to everything in Ruidoso.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for an early Anniversary trip. Everything that you would need was provided. We stayed in and cooked our first night. The kitchen was very nice.

The patio off the master was gorgeous at night. We enjoyed just relaxing in the hot tub (which will put off a pretty neat light show!) .

Great place to stay in Ruidoso!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, this adorable cabin was immaculately clean and very close to town and Ski Apache. The hot tub was a great addition after skiing all day. We will definitely be back next year, thanks again!

We are minutes away from all that are listed. Close enough to activity yet far enough away to be quiet.The Horse museum on Hwy 70 next to the Ruidoso Downs horse race track is a must see. The shopping downtown is a favorite with great shops and restaurants. We are only a few minutes away from Inn of the Mountain Gods gambling casino and restaurant.
