The lodge we stayed in was very clean and we loved the decorations. They put a lot of effort into making... More

The lodge is well taken care of and the grounds are beautifully maintained. The lodge is set in the whispering pines of Ruidoso, and views from... More

This lodge is one of quite a few but we are glad we chose this one. The hot tub was a community hot tub but no one was ever there. We went in the first week of January, arriving on a Sunday. That was perfect timing. They were also great about connecting us with ski and snowboard gear as well... More

My husband and I stayed in Cabin 301 for 3 nights in June and had the most wonderful time! The cabin was absolutely clean and well appointed. The grounds were gorgeous, full of flowers that time of year and of course the hummingbirds, deer, and other wildlife kept us on the lookout for the natural entertainment that awaited us! We... More

The cabin with a fireplace was perfect for a cold December night. The bed was comfortable and the place was clean and roomy. Sheila at the front desk was very helpful. She knew a lot about the history of the area. She helped direct us to restaurants and gave us a suggestion for a wonderful back road trip to Santa... More
