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

Thanks for the feedback. I will check with the office to make sure they were made away of the mattress. The lodge was recently repossessed and we have obviously not ironed out all the bugs left behind by the past owners. The mattress will be replaced! Thanks and come again soon. More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay.

This was a nice little room. It came with a full kitchen that included a stove, refrigerator, microwave, plates and silverware. The bed was comfortable. Staff was excellent and knowledgable. I particularly enjoyed the deck. It's a comfortable seating area with hummingbird feeders that overlooks cute cabins and the river. The only downside to sleeping in the front part of... More

This was our first stay at Upper Canyon Inn. We were looking for a quiet weekend, and were pleasantly surprised at how nice this cabin is. Very clean and well kept. Everything was in good working order. We will definitely make a return visit in the future.
