After sorting through the many lodging choices that are available in Ruidoso, we decided on Storybook cabins, and I think this one would be hard to beat! We were looking for a small, comfortable cabin for two adults and one toddler with a bit of yard as we had hoped for snow and would be able to walk out the...

We stayed in the Papa Bear cabin. We had 4 adults and 7 children. The cabin was clean and had a nice layout. We had an issue with the water heater, which my husband had to relight several times but luckily, it was only the first night that we didn't have hot water, which for us wasn't that big of...

We always stay with Story Book when we are in the area. The cabins are nice and clean with everything you need. We enjoy preparing our own meals so the full kitchens and gas grills are perfect. The owners couldn't be nicer and they are very helpful to your every need. Each cabin has a good supply of firewood for...

Lovely, newer, well-appointed cabins. Spotless, spacious and very comfortable. You supply the food and beverage while they supply the firewood, coffee, and just about everything else. There's an impressive DVD library of films to choose from along with games for the kids. Management is friendly, genuinely warm and helpful. Great for a girls' weekend or family vacation. We'll be back....

I was super impressed with the cabin we stayed in #5. The pictures online didn't do it justice. We felt welcomed and the sparkling cider they provided for our anniversary was a huge plus. Customer service when we checked out was not the best, but we loved it!

These cabins are well maintained...not a speck of dust or dirt could be found! Woke up to a family of deer grazing on the front lawn. The new owners are to be commended for their enthusiasm and friendliness. Would not hesitate to re-book the next time we are in the area.

Upon entering the cabin we found it immaculate. I really liked the way the interior was designed. The pillows were the best that I have ever slept on. Loved the front porch and watching the deer. We fed the deer apples. The outside gas grill was very clean and I cooked out everyday. It was a very relaxing to stay...

Thank you for your review! Cabin 3 is one of the more requested cabins that we have and the deer certainly know that it is a great place to get a snack! We hope to see you again soon!!!

Our family of 4 stayed at these cabins many times in years past. We revisited them again this fall as empty nesters, and were so pleased to be back. It was all the same, but even better. The cabins have not only been maintained but upgraded. Ours was very cute and comfortable with nice handmade tables and cabinet doors, big...

We just stayed in Story Book Cabin's #22 Tree House. 3 adults and 3 older kids. Very nice accommodations, well equipped, nice layout, beautiful! Note: The weather was perfect fall-like weather so we did not have to worry about snow. However we did notice that the road to the cabin could be a bit difficult to manage in snowy or...

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you had a wonderful time and that the weather cooperated! We are aware of the road leading to the cabin and will be having it graded and resurfaced in advance of winter. Of course even with a new surface, snow and ice can make driving that road a bit treacherous...

Our vacation goals were to find a place a whole lot cooler than our hometown Tucson (yes, by 30+ degrees), GREEN rather than desert, peaceful, and near a brook. We wanted to color, read, play cards and board games and basically NAP! All were achieved in renting cabin #33. This is a managed cabin, so is away from the general...
