About Lorena Maddox

My husband and I dedicate ourselves to raise our sons. We live in the city and bought this mountain cabin retreat for us and our boys to go to enjoy the outdoors and to have time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Lorena Maddox purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Lorena Maddox chose New Mexico

We chose to buy this vacation home because we desired for our sons to learn about mountain - outdoor living, like horse back riding, fishing at the lakes, climbing pine trees, breathing clean air, looking at the night stars without polluted skies, and to enjoy the quietness of the mountain. We particularly chose this cabin because it is located at the top of a hill and provides a beautiful view of the forest and the Sierra Blanca Mountain. Also, it faces west, therefore, having remodeled and put all glass windows and doors on this west side, we enjoy the sun all day warming us as we cuddle on the living room couches to read a book or sit at the table playing board games.

What makes this cabin unique

Our family loves this cabin because it is inviting, pretty, and peaceful. Our cabin is very family friendly.

This place was absolutely perfect, our kids had a blast!! We loved everything about it, location, scenery, hot tub was perfect! We had a lot of deer came up to the back patio. We will definitely be coming back again. The owners were also very helpful and got back to you with questions you had!

Nice place to stay

Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the deer coming right up. Did lose power and blow a circuit breaker but quick phone call had everything working again.

Thank you for returning the security deposit in a timely manner. I basically enjoyed my stay at your cabin but I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the cabin and hot tub, especially at having to pay a cleaning and service fee. The sliding glass doors  were so dirty you could not see the beautiful view of the mountains through them, and the base of the sliding glass doors are filthy as are the bases of the refrigerator and dishwasher, also the top of the inside of the refrigerator was dirty. In general the knickknacks and things on shelves needed to be dusted, and the bottom of the hot tub was barely visible because of the brown tint of the water. The dead bugs in the lens of the exhaust fan in the bathroom was not very pleasant.  These issues definitely made the cost of your cabin not a good value.

Relaxing & tranquil

  • 4 of 5

It was a wonderful way to just forget about the work and demands that every day life can bring.

I enjoyed everyday and the property was very nice. I will return when the time is right to escape again.

Thank you. Don

The view is awesome!!

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful, quiet and beautiful.

It is a fully stocked rental, just add food and family.

The living area is upstairs with amazing views and the bedrooms are on the walk in floor.

So you must be able to do several stairs.

It is minutes to drive from town activities and restaurants.

Definitely recommend.
