We have been coming to Ponderosa for almost 20 years for our annual family reunion. We take up all the cabins for a wonderful three day get together. Everything is perfect for such a setting. There is actually no other place in Ruidoso that could accommodate us for such a gathering. The setting, some could call rustic, we call perfect... More

Stayed at Ponderosa over Memorial Weekend. We had cabin #11, which I believe is considered the "big" cabin. We had 5 people in our group, but the place could've slept more than that comfortably. There was 1 king and 4 full/queen size beds, 2 bathrooms, large living and kitchen area (with a fireplace) and an outdoor space on the porch... More

We enjoyed our stay in cabin 18 but I wouldn't stay in that particular cabin in winter until the heater is fixed. We were warned it was finicky but the second night it went out and we woke to a very cold cabin. The cabin was very clean but the mattresses are very firm and seemed to be covered in... More

We stayed there for 5 days with our twin 5 year old Grandsons. Very nice and at a great price. Cabins are very cozy and clean. Jules (the owner) is very friendly and helpful and his workers give great service. Love the location too. Trail leads down to the river and downtown is nearby. Nice and secluded with a real... More

Good location, good people and great price. Centrally located, peaceful and quiet. Clean cabins accompanied with outdoor deck with charcoal grill. Also propane grills furnished. Rooms came with cable and wi-fi connection. Many golf courses nearby. Night clubs and plenty shopping and restaurants within close walking distance.

We really enjoyed our visit here. The town is a great place to visit. We were looking for something that fit into the surroundings, and found the Ponderosa Cabins. Nice, well cared for wood cabins hidden in the trees overlooking a wooded valley. Beautiful setting. The cabins are all "originals" so it is a cabin, not the Ritz, but they... More

We were a bit nervous coming out here and were genuinely surprise. We stayed in the cottage cabin. As far as accommodations go.. It's a cabin, not a price hotel so it's quiet, home like bit simple. The staff was extremely friendly. It's warmly rustic and a great get away for two.

Maybe we just had a "bad" cabin. Cabin #14, but I feel like some updating of the bedding, etc. would make your stay much nicer. Thin sheets and rough blankets, and an old polyester spread that had patches on it where it had been "sewn up". I'm thinking bedding is pretty important for having a nice stay. It was clean,...

Ponderosa cabins were cozy and comfortable. My family and I enjoyed it very much. We stayed 3 days and 2 nights. We didn't want to leave. Note: no a/c. We were there end of June but we still enjoyed our stay. Weather was great to sit outside by the porch even though it was hot during the day, but weather... More
