Had such a great stay. Jules was friendly and wanted to make sure that everything was fine. Cabin was clean and comfortable. I would not stay anywhere else in rudioso. Planning a return trip soon but for a much longer time. Quiet and rustic environment.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Cabin 14! It was the perfect size for us and our German Shepherd. The cabin was very clean and the shower had great pressure and water temperature. I also loved having a full kitchen. The owner was kind enough to lend me a casserole pan when I couldn't find one in... More

It is a great place to stay. It is close to the middle of town but you feel like you are in the woods. It is quiet and peaceful. There wasn't very many cabins occupied and the owner was on vacation. So there were a few days we couldn't get clean towels because housekeeping wasn't around. We stayed in the... More

An off the road, hidden in the trees, paradise of about 10 cabins of varying sizes and costs, but all have kitchens. Actually this is about the 18th time we have stayed here and decided I should write a report on it. We have a three day family reunion there each year since 1998. We take all the cabins and... More

If you are looking for a budget friendly cabin away from traffic and crowds, this is it. Nice fresh towels and linens. Nothing fancy but that's not what I'm looking for when I rent a "rustic" cabin. Great friendly management that is very accommodating. Met my needs, clean, quite, and basic kitchen supplies.

Our stay was wonderful! The atmosphere was amazing and we will definitely be returning! With full amenities, we were able to enjoy homemade breakfast and steaks on the grill! Beds were amazing and everything was clean when we arrived. The walking distance made it so easy to get around into to town.

Once again, I stayed in Ruidoso at the Ponderosa Cabins. They're rustic and quiet, even though they're nestled in the middle of town and close to everything. I stayed in Cabin 19 this time and was very pleased at the cleanliness and appointments within the cabin. When Texas gets hot, it's time to get to Ruisoso -- and the Ponderosa... More

A rustic and quiet setting allows one to unwind from busy day of work. Has a kitchen, roomy with comfortable bed, and walking distance to restaurants and other attractions in mid -town Ruidoso. They have one two or three bedrooms available. The owner named Jules was very accommodating and willing to work with me. I am going back there again... More
