“Quaint Clean and Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were vacationing in Ruidoso, NM and booked our stay at Shadow Mountain Lodge in Room #108. It was such a cozy room, well maintained and very clean. The owners of the property and housekeeping are very friendly and make you feel right at home. I loved sitting out on the porch watching the many hummingbirds, woodpeckers and deer in the area and talking with the neighbors. The hot tub is new and we were able to enjoy it. The lodge is within walking distance of town and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it.

Living in South Texas, by late August we have had it with scorching heat. Our first stay at Shadow Mountain and it was great. We loved sitting on the porch watching the birds and hummingbirds. Gave us a chance to meet and visit with other occupants. Nice size rooms with just enough kitchen to eat in. Everything worked and was very clean. We are regular visitors to Ruidoso and our friends just sold their big home, I picked SM due to driving by for a number of years and top rating by Tripadvisor.

This was a great place to stay. The atmosphere is very nice. We enjoyed watching the deer, the hummingbirds, and just sitting on the porch or at the fire pit area. The location of the property is excellent. It is very quiet, but convenient to restaurants and shopping.

We stayed here only one night, but it was very pleasant. The rooms are a nice size and well equipped. The grounds are lovely. The hot top was broken, but they said it was new and they were working on getting it fixed. It poured rain while we were there, so we couldn't have used it anyway. It was a place that I felt like the owners really paid attention to the small details that make you feel at home. They also had a $2 DVD rental. We would definitely go back.

Thanks for the kind review and for appreciating the property for what it is. Sorry about the hot tub, we are really upset at the builder, Blue Water Pools from Albuquerque. They have really let us down, but we are working hard to get things right. Come again anytime!

We stayed in cabin 302 from August 18-23 and we couldn't have loved it more. Our cabin was very clean and the bed was great. Everyone was very nice and the grounds are very well kept. A jetted tub, pass through fireplace, flat screen TV on a swivel so you can watch from either bedroom or living room, and a nice little kitchen are just some of the room highlights. You can just set a timer and poof, the fireplace comes to life...and believe it or not it got chilly enough in August to actually enjoy a nice little fire. Take a short stroll to Pena's Place for breakfast one day and then go a block or two further to Sacred Grounds Coffee House for the chicken and green chile quiche the next...amazing!
Shadow Mountain is in a perfect spot, right at the foot of the upper canyon. We saw deer every day and loved sitting on the front porch of our cabin watching the hummingbirds at our own personal feeder.
We will definitely be back. Shadow Mountain has earned another loyal customer.
Thanks for making our summer getaway so perfect!!!

Great place to stay...everything you need & more! Comfortable bed, kitchen items included & coffee provided :) but we opted to eat out. Loved watching the deer and hummingbirds right out our door. Clean, quite and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Will return!

Based on trip advisor reviews we decided to stay at this lodge, and what a lovely, neat, clean and relaxing place! The lodge room is configured for two only (two towes, two plates two cups... etc.) They did tell us about having to ask a family with a "noisy child" to leave in order to keep the place tranquil when I mentioned that we have a child with us, but our stay was completely pleasant for all three of us. We'd definitly stay there if we're in Ruidoso. The location is ideal, not on the main noisy road but not too far from it either and it is in a middle location in town where you have easy access to shops and restaurants.

Thank you for the wonderful and honest review!!!! Refreshing as of late. We work very hard to make every stay enjoyable and you were a pleasure to have here, as are all RESPONSIBLE parents and you are welcome back anytime. A small child is not a problem here and in fact we like having young families discover Shadow Mountain Lodge and how comfortable it really is.
