We stayed at this facility last september and went trout fishing on the Rio Ruidoso river. We did not actually stay on the main grounds of the Dan Dee property but rather at one of their off site cabins which was called the Metate cabin. It was only a block or two from their main site. The cabin was one... More

We have stayed SEVERAL places in Ruidoso and this was by far our favorite! We will stay here every time from now on and highly recommend it! We stayed in Pair Tree and the cabin was so comfy and beautiful and had everything we needed. Deer came right to our front door!! The owners were so sweet and helpful also!... More

Some folks find what we have to offer is just their "cup of tea". We'll try to keep the deer around - they're a big hit with most guests. We love hearing that we have another Dan Dee enthusiast! Thank you! More

Stayed at this lovely little cabin (The Rosebud) for one night. The cabins are located in a very convenient location in Upper Canyon area of Ruidoso. Terry was very nice and helpful. She accommodated our one night stay request (they require a two night minimum stay) as they weren't at full capacity. "Maddie" the black lab was there to greet... More

Just leaving Dan Dee Cabins after our second stay there. Clean cozy cabins and wonderful hosts. Can't wait to come back! Nothing like sitting on the beautiful little porch at your cabin watching the snow fall!

My husband and I (along with our little dog, Phoebe) spent a wonderful week in Little Chino Cabin. It was very clean and had everything (except food) that we needed. I cooked a few meals in the kitchen. We had fires in the fireplace every night with wood from the woodpile. We enjoyed the many deer who came by to... More

We had a wonderful time at the Dan Dee Cabins! The two of us stayed in the Fir Tree Cabin and it was in every way what I would consider the perfect place. The cabin had an awesome fireplace that provided an enjoyable setting for us watching the fire and by it providing warmth on a very cool night. The... More

Everyone has their own idea of what a "cabin" should be and we do our best to provide accurate photos and descriptions of what we have to offer. It absolutely tickles us when a guest discovers exactly what they were hoping for at Dan Dee Cabins! More

The DanDee Cabins were quaint and adequate. I knew I wasn't going to be staying at the Hilton. We were in the back of the property, in the Pair Tree. It was clean and had everything we needed. My only complaint was that it was musty and it needs some updating. I understand that they want to keep it homey... More

We always appreciate suggestions from our guests that would make their stay more pleasant. We are a bit unsure as to what this individual feels is needed and would welcome specific recommendations. As for the mustiness, it may have been the result of the substantial rain we had received around that time since this cabin overlooks a Seasonal Creek. Nature... More

Old, out dated, smelly and run down!!!! No grass at all outside - just a few weeds. "Take out your own garbage, leave everything clean, wash dishes, coffee pot etc.", and they even left an envelope requesting that you leave a tip! I don't think so. We booked 4 nights, weeks in advance, and after 2 nights, we couldn't take... More

This couple and their pet stayed in one of our studio cabins, which are actually quite popular with many of our repeat customers. We have no record of them requesting a refund for leaving early. However, with their senior discount and spring special "4th night free", their rate worked out to about $60 per night so perhaps they did not... More

We stayed in the Snapdragon on President's Day Weekend 2014. The trip was a ski trip for just my wife and I. Given the price and location close to town, we booked the Snapdragon Cabin. The cabin was perfect for us. Yes, it's an older cabin with uneven floors, but that lends to its charm. We don't want to stay... More
