This is the second year we have held our family reunion at this Lodge. I have to say that we all had a great time. the very large Lodge room with a rock fireplace was perfect for our large group. Several of us rented cabins, and even though they are a little dated, the cabins really give you the mountain... More

. We spent three nights at this lodge in a quaint 2 bedroom cabin. We were given real wood for our fireplace and my husband and I had a very cozy first night by the fire. The beds were comfortable, but the pillows were not. The next day we headed up the hill to Ski Apache and took the Wind... More

Stayed here a few times and it's away from the busy streets so it's pretty nice. It's old and needs attention. Kitchen is provided but we prefer to eat at the local restaurants. Beautiful scenery and activities to do in town

I cancelled Jan 8, 2015 and as of today 1/26/15 have not been refunded. I have sent emails and have called... More

Nothing was good about this place. The windows and doors leaked. It was freezing in the cabin. The bathroom was disgusting. Water ran all the time and texture on the walls was falling off. Hot and cold water turned off in different directions. Towel rack was falling off the wall. Kitchen wasn't any better; don't plan to cook here. Burners... More

Traveled on a faimily trip so we liked the setting of the lodge but i never got to see an actual employee. When we arrived aroound check in time there was no one in the office the... More

Most of the time the 60s refrigerator didn't keep our food cold. The couple times it rained the skylight leaked. Several times we had to ask for more TP, no extra in the room. Heated pool was too cold to swim, hot tube out of order. Bathroom was a little larger than one on an airplane. Old thermostat would run... More

We went as a family to see some of the western attractions and it was a good price clean and TV that worked. Indoor pool was great for my kids and all in all it was good not in town but still able to get around. The owner was nice and it was a good stay

Came up to Ruidoso for the softball tournaments with my family, my parents, & my 2 brothers families. Had such a wonderful time. The kids loved the pool, adults loved the Jacuzzi. Owners were awesome!!! It may not be one of the fanciest cabins but I believe it was well worth the money. Would most definitely stay here again in... More

The cabins were overpriced for the age of the lodge. The cabins were clean. Staff very friendly. We enjoyed our stay but could've been in much better place for $129.00 a night. Full kitchen was stocked.
