We stayed in room #3 in the lodge. It was a lick-and-a-promise clean, but base boards, doors and door ways needed to be cleaned. One dinning room chair was broken. This room was in the down stairs center and when water was running in other rooms is was noisy in ours. On the upside --- it was in the quite... More

Stayed in Cabin 11 which really was a duplex but had a pleasant night stay and never heard the neighbors. Very convenient location and easy to find. It's dated on the inside but a decent 2-bedroom with kitchen area.

Booked room about a month in advance with no trouble, had to add an extra day and this was done with great ease. The room we had booked was available, but they were going to be renovating so they kindly moved us to a stand alone cabin. All I can say is AMAZING!!!! These cabins are updated and beautiful. Beds...

The staff here is awesome!! Had an unforeseen situation that shouldn't have happened, but no ones fault, and they jumped on it and was taken care of immediately, even the owner came out to take care of it. The place was very clean and nice. Location was pretty close to the heart of shopping. We stayed in Lodge 10, lots... More

We booked a cabin last minute. It was exactly what we needed, a clean safe place to stay. Cabin 11 is a small 2 bedroom, 1 bath, it's a duplex with cabin 12. We never heard our neighbors but they were there. The cabin is on the list for upgrades I was told. I hope they start with the beds!... More

Thanks for the great review. Cabin 11 is a gem from the rustic days of Ruidoso. We are closing in on completing major renovations throughout the entire property, converting the lodge into all whirlpool suites. We expect to have all work completed by late fall this year. That will include all new beds! Come again. More

This was a beautiful cabin but did have "DrawBacks". First I was going to book at Shadow Mountain Lodge and Cabins but Upper Canyon had a king size bed and I thought a wooden floor. The kitchen area looked clean and was adequate for what it was, a small area..we were not going to use it anyway...The bathroom itself ,... More

Thanks for the honest review. We only recently purchased this property and are scrambling to restore it to its once former glory by November. New carpet is on the list, but the existing carpet is still servicable and was steam cleaned recently. We are in the process of completely renovating the entire property, but since the cabin you stayed in... More

Clean and comfortable cabin. We stayed in cabin #11. Floors need some updating but were clean. Owners were friendly and helpful. Loved sitting out on the front porch in the rocking chairs and enjoying the cool pines. Nice amenities, nice big TV, air conditioned as well. Best of all it was pet friendly with a nice little park next to... More

My son and I were chased out of our tent in the great outdoors by freezing weather, and by happenstance ended up at the Upper Canyon Inn. What a delightful find!! We stayed in a 2 bedroom which was nicely appointed and had all the amenities one might desire. As someone mentioned in a previous review, the kitchen is a... More

We tried to make reservations with Shadow Mountain but no two bedrooms. They also reserve for this facility and we were told it was equally nice. Based on what we saw for Shadow Mountain facility on their website, we made the reservations. We were in a two bedroom and were disappointed. Half of it had a bit of charm but... More

We are sorry that you were not happy with the room. We are not certain who told you that it was equal to Shadow Mountain Lodge as Shadow is the only 5 star lodge in Ruidoso. However, the room you stayed in does have a split personality with one side beautiful and romantic and the other simply utilitarian. Great for... More

Me & my boyfriend just spent the weekend here for his birthday and it was just what we needed! Everything in the cabin was updated and well maintained. It was actually much nicer than I was expecting! The location was great, it was secluded but still close enough to town. The bath tub is amazing! We will definitely stay here... More
