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. However, we see that you are confused about the cabin as you mention listings showing various amenities that were not present and you describe reading that the cabin had been updated.This cabin is not listed on any of our web sites or literature as it is an incomplete cabin undergoing...

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

Thanks for the great review! You captured the essence of the lodge. Srry about the road noise, of course it usually gets very quiet as the evening draws on. Come again! 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.

This makes out 4th time to stay here. Would not stay ANYWHERE else while in Ruidoso. Cabins are awesome - secluded - clean - what else could you ask for ??
