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 Ruidoso

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.

Beautiful, cozy, comfy, and rustic!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Ruidoso, NM! The cabin was comfy, cozy, and beautiful! The cabin sits nicely in the little rustic town of Ruidoso. It is close to all amenities, and close enough to the mountain for skiing. Plenty of room for a large family. Located in a hilly area for kiddos to hike, explore, and play outside during the day. The view from the deck of the mountains and the sunset was spectacular! Everyone in town was helpful and friendly. The owner of this property was helpful with directions and details about the property. We will definitely go again!
