Overall, the house is a winner! It is spacious, clean, a quiet neighborhood, and has a wonderful large deck in the backyard. Where we spent the majority of our time. However, the backyard is much smaller than pictures appear! About half of the backyard isn’t usable because of the septic system and high grass! The front and backyard have astroturfing. We didn’t mind, however. But we did have yard games we couldn’t stake down. In addition, there is some kind of grate with stagnant water underneath it in the backyard. Right in the play area. I think it is for water runoff. However, it made the mosquitoes and bugs crazy! We had to spray down every time we walked outside and still got numerous bites!!! It is advertised as child friendly. While the house is decorated beautifully, there are many things in the reach of small hands. There were many posted warnings about not moving anything. However, if we had not moved some of those items, they most assuredly would’ve been broken just from normal kids running around not being precocious. We saw several Elk, deer, various birds, wild horses, and squirrels!!! On the downside, there were not enough pots and pans. No large skillet and only one large boiling pan. The advertisement said that there were four bedrooms. Technically, I guess there were. We kept looking at all the pictures and never saw the fourth bedroom. It is a large laundry room with a trundle bed. Again, it was fine but would’ve been nice to know in advance. Also, the double garage is locked and I guess it’s not available for guest use. Also we were left four washcloths to last 4 people for 9 days!!! While the neighborhood was quiet, the neighbors were a little nosey! It took about 15 minutes to get downtown. We love Cafe Rio! The pizza is fab! Better if you eat it there! My sister loved The Buttery; the vibe was great! Nice people. Hall of Flame burgers is wonderful. The drive to Cloudcroft was beautiful! In the end, we would stay again but bring pots and pans and request more towels and washcloths.

We stayed in cabin 7, just my husband & me. Had it not been paid in full ahead of time, we would have left. Here were the issues- The Internet was weak, could not zoom or stream This cabin was situated about 10' from a very busy road Carpets were badly stained, couch was stained, shower curtain was stained The shower was a stall about 24 to 28" square and the toilet area was ridiculously small The kitchen sink and bathroom sink had scalding hot water, which would be fine if that was the issue in the shower. The shower never got above tepid The ceiling fan in the bedroom was unbalanced and loud, so in order to sleep in the heat you had to leave the door open. The blinds did not close well enough to block out light. There were no mountain views, you had a nice view of the peoples yard across the street. It is not walking distance to the river. There is a coffee pot that basically makes cold brew. There were no coffee filters or kleenex for that matter. Bedroom lighting was poor. The one thing I will say kindly is that the sheets were clean. If there was an option for no stars, I would pick that one.

We love the mountains and try to go at least once, sometimes twice a year, for the past 15 years.We have stayed at various cabin rentals, but Sandy's friend Sheryl, told us about Cozy Bear and we booked a cabin. Beautiful, clean, comfy, close to Mid town. Very well maintained! We will book with Sandy again!

Recent visit to beautiful Ruidoso, NM and stayed at Cozy Bear Cabins. Very clean and well appointed. Comfortable furnishings, nice kitchen with everything you might need. Close to mid-town and many eateries. Sandy was great to work with at check-in. This will be our spot when we get to visit the mountains!

Host was very sweet, made the check in easy. #8 was clean and cute. We will stay again, it's in a convenient area close to downtown where our favorite pizza place is-Cafe Rio. Room was very warm with gas fireplace or the heater. This is a couples getaway place.

I stayed in cabin #8 for 3 nights and loved it. The bed was comfy and the kitchen and living room were roomy enough for 2 people. Host was very nice and a very easy check in and check out process. The cabin was extremely clean with towels and extra linens provided. It is right off the main road where you can walk to all the shops and restaurants but still feel isolated enough . We saw several deer in the area and the casino is only about a 4 minute drive away.

The cabin was perfect for a quick trip to the mountain. It is centrally located, (within walkin distance to starbucks :)...convenient walking distance to the shops. The cabin was nice, clean and cozy. I would highly recommend in the future!

We stayed in one of Cozy Bear's cabins that's a bit off the beaten path, not with the large group of cabins, but off into the woods and by the river, with a couple of other of theie cabins. It was everything one could ask for in a vintage (1940s) rustic cabin right on the river. We LOVED the decor which was quirky and local all the way — the sound of thriver outside, the rustic chairs and benches by the river, the fireplace, the old fashioned tub right between bed and kitchen with a shower attached and curtain round-the-tub. Out the back door were more wonderful things like bear carvings out of burnt trees and local antiquities like snowshoes and wooden skis mounted to the outside of the cabin. It was quiet, yet there were neighbors. Walking along the river is fun, and a short drive to downtown and all the activities, dining and shopping. We were on the Harley, and though this is out in the woods on a gravel road, in good weather this was not a problem on a motorcycle. The owners were helpful and welcoming and have done a wonderful job of making this both vintage and modern at the same time. Full kitchen, btw, should you want to cook. (I don't.) Full size coffee maker and plenty of coffee, sugar, creamer and essentials. That's a HUGE plus. Highly recommended.

We stayed for only one night due to availability and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were lucky a snow storm came a few days before so we has a white Christmas break. Owners were really helpful and friendly. They let my kids borrow their sled so we won't waste time looking for one. Cabin was very clean and homely with a nice mountaintop charm. Only negative is I didn't see a bear haha. Would love to go there again for a week or so

During our stay at Cozy Bear Cabins #10 # & #5 we were treated very special by Kelli and Rusty. We even took advantage of their retired military discount after talking with Kelli. Both Rusty and Kelli make you feel as if you are part of the family. Also, Jackie was a very nice lady (Rusty's Mom) to talk to. We will always stay at Cozy Bear Cabins whenever we go to Ruidoso for any period of time. Their cabins are very well kept and if you need anything they are willing to provide it.
