We have stayed at Shadow Mtn. Lodge 2 previous times. This has been our best stay. The front desk clerk, Lea, was very courteous, friendly and made us feel very comfortable. She changed my room assignment without a problem and brought us a firelog, sheet and towel for our Yorkie. The rooms were immaculate. We will be visiting again! Thanks!

I have stayed at this wonderful lodge twice, this time under new ownership so I wanted to write an updated review. We recently stayed here for a 3 day ski weekend and everything about the lodge was perfect. From the cozy room to the extremely comfortable king bed to the beautiful hot tub...everything was wonderful! The new owners are super... More

We started off our stay by arriving at 3:30am, and with advance notice, they made getting into our room and finding it SO EASY! We had our pup with us too, and they were happy to set us up in a pet friendly room. Even left us with a sheet and towel for our old lady to wipe her paws... More

Knowing that you have a solid home base, whether on vacation or not, can make a huge difference in how your vacation goes. In this case, knowing that we were so well taken care of at Shadow Mountain Lodge, made all the difference in the world.

Thanks for finding us! SML is truly and amazing place to stay, though most folks first gravitate to the branded box hotels then find us when they explore the village. We are sorry that you had a bad experience elsewhere, but are happy that that became a short cut in finding us. Come again soon and please tell other just... More

We (wife, 2 young children, and I) stayed at Shadow Mountain Lodge during our recent vacation to Ruidoso. The cabin (#111) we stayed in was nice and cozy and just the right size. It was equipped with a small kitchen...complete with a small refrigerator, sink, stovetop, and microwave oven. Another plus--instant hot water and soft water from the taps. The... More

I loved the quiet environment. it's at the end of the town so it's hidden which I personally liked! gives you a little more privacy than being next to a main road. the lodge was comfy and cozy! I like how they even have cooking pans and dish soap to make you feel more at home and allows you to... More

We try very hard to make every stay memorable, but the real magic is in the fact that we offer so much more than most other lodging options and for the same price or less.

Very efficient on-line reservation system, very friendly staff, very clean, modern but with a rustic cabin look. Kitchenette in room with all amenities, outdoor hot tub, at the end of the main street in town. For longer stays, the adjacent cabins are larger and have even more amenities.

Wish we could have stayed longer. My husband and I arrived tired after a day's drive but within a short time we decompressed. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and the lodge felt like home.

Well kept lodge with large rooms including kitchen area - very quiet little refrigerator unlike so many that keep you awake. Their hot tub was one of the nicest I have been in - it was surrounded with a screened in gazebo. Nice chairs on the porch for relaxing and a special bonus of a mother deer and 2 babies... More
