Simply awesome is the only way to describe our stay. The cabin was excellent. Something we did not expect and really surprised us was the clearing of snow from our car. Yes, it snowed while we were here. I went out to clear the windows and it has already been done. All of the cars windows were cleared. So for...

This cabin is a clean, well-maintained comfortable place to stay while spending time in the Ruidoso area. It is not remote but located within the city, so it is convenient to shopping and dining, and very easy to find. The property has 4 stand-alone cabins arranged in a tight cluster adjacent to the modest lodge that has many other rooms...

We stayed in Cabin 302 for a couple nights. Absolutely amazing! Loved the privacy, in-cabin 2-person hot tub, and overall feel!!! Reminded me of being back in east Tennessee, which is a good thing! Leah was awesome; very friendly, and helpful. Had flowers delivered before we arrived, and she put them in the cabin, to surprise my lady!

I was in town on business. This was a nice alternative to a stuffy hotel. I suspect that many people who stay here are in town for a romantic visit. It was great to have a kitchenette and I enjoyed the fireplace. The grounds are also a really great alternative to a traditional hotel. they were immaculate. I have to...

We were delighted about our stay at the Shadow Mountain Lodge. The room was spacious and well arranged with an equipped kitchen, comfy living space with a couch and wood burning fireplace, and a king sized bed. The mountain decor was inviting. And we enjoyed sitting on the porch looking out at the natural setting of pine and aspen trees....

My husband and I recently stayed at the Shadow Mountain Lodge and Cabins in Ruidoso, NM. It was fantastic! It should be noted that the rooms accommodate adults/couples only as they only sleep two. This is not the place for multi-member families or couples with children. Both the Lodge rooms and the cabins have a fireplace, king-sized bed and a...

When in Ruidoso this is one of our favorite places to stay! If you can get a room as it is always booked tight! Peaceful, clean, and the wood fireplace was the perfect touch. Just something about the whiff of wood smoke on a cold mountain morning while drinking a fresh cup of coffee that makes memories permanent! Highly recommended,...

This was our second time in Ruidoso and we chose Shadow Mountain Lodge after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We stayed in room 101 and found it clean and cozy. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen area nice and a great fireplace. It has a romantic atmosphere. The only thing that was not up to expectations was the shower....

We just had our second stay at Shadow Mountain Lodge. We stayed in one of the cabins, with our two little Yorkies. The cabins are not huge, but are perfect for a couple. They are very nicely decorated with a fireplace, a tub big enough for two, and beautiful bedding. The wifi was fast and the TV has a nice...
