About The Owner

I am a retired firefighter from El Paso Texas, my wife is a teacher and a life time El Pasoan. I am originally from Washington State, close to the Canadian border. I moved to the southern border 35 years ago and have missed the green mountains of my youth. But I also grew to love the Southwest with its rich Hispanic culture. Cloudcroft was the perfect mix of both worlds. Our children all love the outdoors, they are all avid mountain bikers, snowboarders and skiers. We love the Family atmosphere and small town values that Cloudcroft offers. We love nature and all always in awe of how beautiful Cloudcroft is, it is so close to the big cities, yet it is full of unspoiled beauty. Cloudcroft has been our perfect destination for winter fun and to escape the heat of the desert in the summer.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2014

Why The Owner chose New Mexico

We felt that this cabin was the perfect property for a family getaway. We felt it was in the perfect location and we were excited to be able to purchase it and get involved in the remodeling project which reflected our personalities. It is located right in the Heart of Cloudcroft. You can walk to Burro Street and enjoy one of the many fun events which are held in Cloudcroft every year. The house is right at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and borders the national forest. You can literally step across our property line and walk down the hill to the trailhead of the Osha Trail. It is one of the prettiest nature tails you will can find in the region. The trail is 2.7 miles long with a 320 foot vertical gain a gentle hike for all ages. You hike through alpine meadows, aspen groves and thick forest. You can find a variety of wildlife such as deer, elk and wild turkey, even wild mustangs! The views are fantastic. Step inside our cabin and you will immediately see why we chose this perfect setting for our getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

One of the greatest benefits of our cabin is that it is like new and economical to rent. The whole family can enjoy a self contained three bedroom home with kitchen for less than a hotel bed would cost you in most areas. It is located close in to enjoy the Cloudcroft events, yet right next to the beautiful Lincoln National Forest.

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5

Trail's End Cabin was a great place for two families to meet up and enjoy the mountains! First thing we noticed, it was very clean, much cleaner than other vacation rentals we've stayed in. The spacious front entry way was great to have when coming in with kids with wet shoes and clothes from playing in the snow. We loved being able to walk out the door and turn right and go a couple blocks and be at the shops and restaurants or turn left and go on a great hike, the OSHA trail. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were super comfortable. I enjoyed having my coffee out on the little deck looking into the trees. This place was great and we'll definitely consider coming back here!

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay (3 adults, 2 children) in Trail's End Cabin! We will definitely be back, and we would recommend it to a friend. It's nothing over the top or fancy, but it's in a great spot, and we enjoyed walking to town for coffee, gear, food, and more. The yard had enough snow for snowball fights, and we found several great sledding spots nearby as well. Definitely a great value!

Great property!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Trail's End. It had everything we needed and is in a wonderful location for walking to town or the Osha trailhead. The only complaint is that it's advertised to sleep 8. The sofa is not really comfortable for 2 as it is not a sofa-bed, but is a sectional. We had one person on it and it wasn't comfortable for him. One of us tried hard (even going so far as to get a digital antenna) to watch football with no success. Didn't realize El Paso has the closest TV stations. A satellite would a nice addition. The rest of us enjoyed hiking and playing in the Christmas day snow.
