We spent Memorial Day weekend relaxing in Ruidoso, NM at Shadow Mountain Lodge that we selected based on Trip Advisor reviews. Cabin # 304, fairly new [built in 2003] was well designed for a couple for comfort and function--and was extremely well serivced--very clean!
Doug McAlister, Property Manager, is very knowledgeable about Ruidoso and eager to offer his personal evaluations, opinions and recommendations on restaurants, "life in Ruidoso", real estate and activities, etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed & recommend the Pena Cafe and Cornerstone Cafe for breakfast and lunch and Landlocked for early informal dinner.
As Trip Advisor member for 7 months, this selection [Shadow Mountain Lodge] is our fourth selection based on Trip Advisor reviews and we could not be more pleased with each selection--We'll certainly continue to rely on Trip Advisor evaluations. And we'll be returning to Shadow Mountain Lodge soon!
