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.

Quiet and Relaxing

Great weather, great view and great stay. It was tough getting out of the hot tub and off to town. Accommodations were excellent. Kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable and clean. We will be returning.

Very Comfortable and Lovely Setting!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing and comfortable accommodations at this mountain retreat! Beds were quite comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Deer came around in the morning and evening. The view was magnificent and though close enough to the city, it was very quiet and restful. Thanks for a very nice stay. The property was maintained well and the owner, Lorena was most helpful with all details. We will go back again!

Enjoyable, comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great three day stay at the cabin. The cabin was larger than we really needed, but it seemed like a great deal for us, and we were not disappointed. It is well suited for a larger group as well as our needs. We found it very clean, comfortable and quiet. We stayed during the week and the few neighboring houses had almost no activity.

We enjoyed the hot tub and grilling on the deck. The kitchen was well equipped with nice appliances and utensils. We found everything we needed for a pleasant experience. The cabin It is not quite where the listing shows it to be on the map, but we were able to find it easily with Lorena’s map. The cabin is well located for a quick drive into Ruidoso for shopping, food and entertainment. We are definitely thinking of returning for another stay at some point in the future.
