Another successful trip thanks, in part, to our wonderful stay at this lodge! The staff is so nice and helpful. Pet friendly is always a must any where we stay, no disappointment there! This place is amazing! It will always be the top of our list! Perfect couple get away! Thank you SML team!

This lodge is very cozy, rightly sized, and in a great part of the town. They have a common hot tub, a couple of grills, and is well serviced. I would love to stay here just for that, but the couple who runs the place are the cherry on the top. Very soft spoken Canadian who are very inviting and... More

The cabin is cozy for a couple looking for relaxation and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The fireplace added nicely to the ambiance. The location is easy to find and don't be surprised to see deer nearby.

Shadow Mountain is a wonderful place to stay in Ruidoso. It is very close to downtown and we found the street to be very quiet. The grounds are very well maintained and were decorated for Christmas. Every aspect of the property was nicely decorated and very neat and spotless. We had a fireplace in our room and a full kitchen.... More

A really nice place in a great location. Stayed in one of the cabins this trip. On our next trip we will probably try one of the lodge rooms. The cabin bathroom set up is kind of funky - no privacy getting ready in the morning.

Went their upon my return from Kuwait. Absolutely loved the cabin we rented. The cabin was well put together romantic and quiet. Would definitely recommend it for a couples get away. The location is prefect to restaurants and off the main road.

We found this little gem after our original hotel turned out to be less than desirable! Thank goodness we did! It's so cozy and quiet and well maintained!
