About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, Gameroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8). Nice area, great views.

The view at this cabin is spectacular and possibly one of the best around. Relaxing on the deck and looking out at the beauty of Sierra Blanca and the forest is awesome and can hardly be matched. You are also able to enjoy the picturesque view from the indoors, through the floor to ceiling windows.

The cabin is roomy, has a very pleasant and open floor plan (it even has large bedrooms) and still maintains a cozy feel.

Lower level is living room, kitchen, full bathroom, and master bedroom. 2nd level has 2 large bedrooms (one room has a king bed, other room has a queen and a full bed), large full bathroom, and a gameroom with a pool table and 2 twin beds. There is access to the deck from the master bedroom, and access to an upper deck from the gameroom.

The combination of the openness, the convenient location, and the spectacular view make this cabin a very desirable rental. You are sure to love it!

About Annette Cook

This cabin has been in our family for over 30 years. My husband and I have just recently taken over ownership from my parents. My 3 brothers who have a construction business in Lubbock built the cabin. Family and friends have enjoyed the cabin for many years and we wanted it to remain in the family. We enjoyed our trips to the cabin so much that we never wanted to leave! We hope that guests who stay there will enjoy it as much as we have.

Annette Cook purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Annette Cook chose Ruidoso

We always enjoyed coming to Ruidoso because of its spectacular beauty! We enjoyed going snow skiing, golfing, the horse races, and just simply being in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

I can't say enough about the spectacular view!

Beautiful home, just like the pictures...

  • 5 of 5

My children (ages 24, 21 & 20) and I stayed here for the entire Thanksgiving 2014 week, and the home was exactly what we were hoping for. Although we had a little trouble finding it in the dark on the night we arrived ('s the home on the RIGHT of the propane tank), we were very happy the minute we walked in the door. Opening the blinds the next morning and seeing what we'd missed the night before was a wonderful treat!

We enjoyed the game room, the games (although we brought plenty of our own) and the fireplace. There was no snow, and some days were pretty warm (high 60s), but we built a fire most nights just for ambiance. There was unsplit wood under the deck that we didn't feel like splitting, so we bought a few bundles in town. Funny story...our home is 800 miles from the cabin, and the wood bundles were from a town not an hour away from where we live!

Because we stayed for an entire week, we had LOTS of luggage and daily groceries to bring in, and we couldn't have stayed in this particular cabin had it not been for the automatic luggage lift. Even the daily treks up and down the stairs without baggage was a and my youngest son's knees aren't in the best shape, but it was a small price to pay for such a great house.

The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. We regularly bought things at the store only to return and find there was some already at the cabin! Instructions throughout the home were clear. We had to unload the dishwasher for our first use, and there seemed to be a short in one of the stove burners - couldn't keep it on, so we just used another - but everything else was in perfect working order. We cooked most of our meals, but the restaurant recommendations on the fridge was a nice touch.

Our week was filled with activities...leaving early and coming home late, then playing games until the wee hours of the we didn't spend any time on the deck. We shopped downtown Ruidoso, visited Roswell and Carlsbad and sled the dunes at White Sands. We also spent one afternoon just exploring mountain roads in Arabela. On our last night, we stepped outside and there were 8 deer just below us! We fed them with the corn provided, and the next morning, they were there again waiting for breakfast!

We had hoped to ski, but the lack of snow didn't lessen our enjoyment. I would highly recommend this area and this rental and hope to return!

Beautiful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend from friday till sunday in this property and it was just great! We had everything we needed from full kitchen to separate bedrooms for everyone, a pool table and wildlife that comes directly to the veranda! We would go there anytime again!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The best Ruidoso experience in this cabin. Thank you to the owners who are very thoughtful and generous Hosts and also very sweet to speak to!!! The views are amazing!! The location is perfect and close to everything, but yet nestled in the woods for the best vacation experience. The cabin itself is very clean and decorated so pretty with local arts. The high ceilings make everything feel so spacious but it's still cozy at the same time. And the game room was so much fun. My family and I are definitely planning another trip this year at this same cabin!!! Thank you Annette for being so thoughtful of your guests!!!

Really pretty views.

  • 5 of 5

The only thing that was a problem was the stairs. Too many to climb. The pictures did not show all the stairs. Other than I that it was great. The driveway was a little steep..
