“Wonderful getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Older cabins with a rustic feel and everything you need for a relaxing getaway in the mountains. The staff was friendly and the cabins were located practically in the center of the village. They provide split firewood which is a bonus and a variety of cabins sizes with different amenities to fit your vacation needs.

We stayed in cabin #24 which is one of their smaller cabins, but the cabin was clean and neat. Our cabin had a television with basic cable, a small refrigerator, coffee pot, wall heater, and a wood burning fireplace. However, it is important to note that this cabin was built back in the 1950's and the bathroom was very small. Lets just put it this way...you can sit on the toilet and brush your teeth at the same time because the sink is really that close to the toilet.

Overall, the place is very charming and we would definitely stay there again.

Stayed in a cabin with the family. Cloudcroft is a nice little town, cabins were nice, heater worked plus they had wood for the fire. Place taken care of very well. It had all the things you would need for a nice stay plus a great location to enjoy the town.

Our stay was wonderful. We stayed in cabin 4 and we choose it because it is across the street from the Nostalgia Room. Our family had our mother's 80th birthday party and we wanted to be close to where everyone was. The cleanliness of the room, the little bags of toiletries was really nice. There was even a iron and ironing board. Plus the picnic tables and chairs outside make it so nice for socializing. The ladies in the office are always nice! My husband and I still laugh because after one night my husband had to stumble home and it was great it wasn't far!

Their little rhyme on the desk says it all "No refund, no way, you pay, you stay" To which I would add "Stay Away". They are not kidding. You pay up front for the stay. Our cabin had no screens, so it had flies during the day, and moths during the night. Keeping the windows open meant sharing the cabins with any insect that wanted in. The paint outside was new, nothing inside was.

I will confess that the beds were comfortable. One small step.

Great place to stay, great prices. Stayed a week and got the last night free. The staff was nice and the owners are doing a lot to update the property. Loved cooking outside and our kids loved the Boston terrier dog "Remi" as the office people to see her tricks. Will come again!

Great staff and accommodations. We stayed in cabin 4. We have stayed iin this cabin for a few years. We like it because it has a walk in shower. My husband is mobility impaired and this cabin is easy to get around in. Spruce Cabins have increased the number of cabins and are in the process of updating. Remember this is Cloudcroft and cabins,enjoy the experience.

We found that we had to cook our breakfast with windows closed and no ventilation because of flies coming in due to lack of window screens. Also for sleeping it was very nerve wracking to be at the mercy of whatever might want to come in the very not screened windows. Also check on whether there are sunblock curtains or blinds in the bedrooms--again, some cabins do and some don't--ours did not. All in all there I got a sense that there is great variation in the repair, updating and furnishings of these cabins--so BEWARE and really look into the status of the one you think you might want to rent. We had the bad luck to pay for what I can best describe as non rennovated 50's squalor. We had a frustrating time coping with the drawbacks of our unfortunate choice of cabin, coupled with the fact that cabins are close to road, and in July 2012 there was Monday through Friday noise from 7 AM to 5 PM because of forest clearing on the hillside across the road. This was of course beyond the control of Management--Spruce just happened to be at the end of town where this "logging" activity was in full swing. However, the location is vulnerable to noice being very non residential. We were elsewhere as much as possible.YUCK, either we will try Spur Landings or house rental next time, or avoid Cloudcroft all together. Only pluses: nice towels, comfortable mattresses, nice exterior upkeep to the property, and cleanliness within the tiny squalor of our cabin. PS: There was no point in complaining--or trying to leave...the Management policy was clearly stated in a notice in the rental office: NO REFUNDS. Oh, and yeah, they run your credit card through for ENTIRE AMOUNT when you check-in. I wanted to leave within 4 hours of arriving and unpacking, but we decided to suck it up and stay rather than try to find other accommodations and then put the credit charge in dispute and possible end up paying for double vacation lodging.

Room Tip: Find out if you are getting a cabin with screening on windows.--..many of the cabins strangely lack...
