About Jeri-Lynn & Bill Sandusky
My husband, Bill, retired from the Air Force with 26 years of service and I had a career as a Realtor specializing in corporate and military relocation. We've lived all over the USA including Washington, DC, MD, PA, SC, FL, CO, UT, TX, NV, and overseas in Japan and Korea.
Jeri-Lynn & Bill Sandusky purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Jeri-Lynn & Bill Sandusky chose Cloudcroft
We fell in love with Cloudcroft after visiting friends there in 2003. We enjoyed living in the mountains previously, so we decided to build a second home in Cloudcroft once we found the perfect location. At Elk Hollow we provide everything you need to make your vacation a wonderful experience. We want all of our guests to feel as though Elk Hollow is their own little piece of heaven.
What makes this Cabin unique
Well, you just can't beat the view from Elk Hollow! Mountain views and woodland views from all rooms, and Elk Hollow has a large, fully covered wrap-around deck and gas BBQ for your enjoyment. We also have Wi-Fi and 3 TV's and 2 DVD players. We furnish all condiments, herbs, spices, coffee, flour, sugar, soaps and paper products.. Our bath soap is hand poured goat's milk, shea butter, and/or glycerin, and we also have hand poured 100% soy candles for your enjoyment. If you're visiting for the wildlife, then we've got it. It is not uncommon to see herds of elk in our yard and throughout the neighborhood. We have a large pond down the road where you can feed the many fish, ducks, and just across the pond is a hiking trail through the Lincoln National Forest. We furnish snow discs for winter use, or they can be used to sled down the sand dunes at White Sands National Monument in Alamogordo.

Great house! Zero complaints!
Great house and the owners are very responsive to inquiries. We had a fantastic experience and will be coming back.
First of all, the owners are very kind and communicative! Don’t get overwhelmed by the welcome letter or rules (it’s ALL very helpful and necessary info when your renting out your home to “strangers”).
Secondly, the property itself was fantastic! Perfect for our family of four. The kitchen was not only stocked with all you need to cook a 4 course meal, but the pantry was loaded with all kinds of goodies if you forgot something. Did I mention the beds were super comfy too (didn’t use the sleeper sofa).
During our two-day stay, we enjoyed the snow just outside the cabin (disc sledding, built a snowman, and sipped hot chocolate while watching the elk and deer pass through). The wrap around porch is awesome, complete with birdseed for the bird feeder. Cloudcroft is just a few miles down the road. We had Lepree’s for lunch and then tried KennaBelle’s bakery. Both were great! We also tubed (they also have skiing) at SkiCloudcroft. We all had a blast! Would definitely recommend and would stay again in a heartbeat!
Thank you so much Jen for your wonderful review. We really appreciate it.
Absolutely loved staying at Elk Hollow! It was exactly what we wanted and needed. It truly felt like a home away from home! Jeri went above and beyond to make this stay wonderful. The house was clean and had so much to offer. It was so hard to leave and we can’t wait to come back for our next vacation to Cloudcroft.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We strive to provide all the comforts of home, so that you do not have to bring or buy items that we already provide. We would be very pleased if you make Elk Hollow your home away from home again.
Great long weekend!
This was such a cozy and clean cabin! Perfect for our relaxing family weekend. Loved the high ceilings and fireplace and heated blankets in the bedrooms. And...wood floors that don’t squeak!
Thank you for your very nice review of Elk Hollow. Bill and I try to have all of the comforts of home for our guests. Thank you for discovering our mountain hideaway, and please come again.
Everything was great! Clean, homey, and well equipped! loved the location as well! Would definitely stay again!
Thank you Carol. We would love for you to visit Elk Hollow again. Thank you for the review.
We had a great time. It was a lot of help with the extra seasoning and other needed groceries. Very clean and awesome for sledding.
Thank you for your review, Dillon. My husband and I have rented places that only furnished the basics and no more. We have a fully stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes and glassware of every kind, and a fully stocked cabinet with most every kind of condiment and spice you might need. We tell our guests that when a condiment or spice is about to run out, would they mind replacing it, if possible, for other guests.
