This was just the best place to stay. We were going to White Sands National Monument and someone recommended we stay in Ruidoso. Great choice. Cute mountain town. We called and spoke to Leah about booking and she was so great with letting us come and check out the place first. We were traveling with our 2 small dogs and... More

Thanks for finding us. Sometimes places like ours get lots in the noise and it is always nice to know good folks made their way to us. Roger and Leah work hard to make every visit memorable. Thanks for the shout out! More

This is a wonderful location. It is convenient to mid-town, yet on the edge of the forest. Wildlife is abundant. It is a very quiet place to stay, and the innkeepers are very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are large and decorated well. I will definitely stay here again, and I hope it's in the near future. For those who... More

This was our first visit to Shadow Mountain Lodge and it was worth every dollar!! This place went out of the way to accommodate our crazy schedule and make us feel not only welcome but wanted! This place is a must if you are visiting Ruidoso. They did not have a "cabin" open like we had hoped, but we never... More

I stayed one night while traveling home to Texas. I had a lodge room that was large, clean and comfortable. I used the kitchen in my room to make dinner, and it was adequately stocked. The grounds are very pretty and had deer grazing on it. It was a cool, Fall night, so I was able to sleep with the... More

We stayed only one night, but would definitely book this hotel again. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable. The fireplace with its easy-start log provided a very cozy atmosphere. The grounds are pretty and the hotel sits across the street from the forest. There's a rustic theme, but everything is quite civilized: not luxurious but fun. We had to stop... More

We have stayed at Shadow Mountain a number of times before - and have always enjoyed it immensely! Keep up the good work. We found everything comfortable and well maintained as always. We recommend it to other couples who are looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay in Ruidoso.

The lodge was so nice and relaxing. It's in the upper canyon, so there's not a lot of traffic to deal with (the sounds and such). Very nice, cozy room with a wonderful bed. Hot tub was so soothing to a tired body that had been walking and touring the surrounding area all day. This was our second visit to... More

We enjoyed our lovely vacation SOOO much! The atmosphere was just wonderful! Very friendly, helpful staff. Looking forward to a return stay in the future! The new hot tub (not the one pictured on the website) was refreshing after a day of hiking or shopping. The wooded grounds and view felt like we were up in the woods but were... More

Such a nice place, even though it sits on Main St., the lodge sits off the road, has plenty of amenities for those who would rather hang out and cook. You can also walk into town to eat. Its a short walk to Sudderth and Meachem Rd intersection. The rooms are a nice size, the beds comfortable and the owners... More
