“Fantastic Place with a fantastic price”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We arrived to the Retro on the River on July 3rd with excitement! My husband, our three boys and I were all so thrilled with what we saw upon our arrival to the cabin. It was very true to the photos and description of the place. You will have everything you need to cook, sleep with great comfort, relax while watching tv, play games or sit outside on the deck in the peace and quite of nature. I thought it might be a little noisy outside since it is so close to town, but I was wrong. You can hear the lulls of the creek bed down below while resting on the elevated deck off the master bedroom. I love the special touch of the curtains around the hot tub for privacy. It gives you that feeling of being pampered while unwinding in the hot tub. Also, loved the free wifi and many choices of cable tv channels. The weather was perfect while we were there, but on the last night, it rained and we got to experience the sound of rain on the metal roof which made for us the perfect get away place. We will for sure be returning in the near future.

“Charming Getaway with All the Amenities”
Reviewed May 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We only booked this cabin, called "Retro on the River," for a short stay of two nights, but we wish it had been longer. Lived up to all the advance word on the place. A very charming and totally renovated cabin literally one minute away from the main drag of Ruidoso, NM with all its shops, galleries, and restaurants. Yet, very secluded, with a real mountain getaway ambiance. The small property is totally fenced in, so our two dogs could play outside safely. A wonderful porch/deck comfortably furnished with rattan chairs is a perfect place to socialize or just absorb nature. Grill is there as well, although we didn't use it. Hot tub also on another deck, but again we didn't use it. The interior of the cabin is beautifully furnished with a very retro theme. Flat screen TV, wifi, all kitchen appliances - everything you would want. A really terrific place.

“You won't regret it!”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

While I was looking on the Internet for cabins in Ruidoso, this one caught my eye right away! Everything I read, the reviews, and pictures of this cabin, was very intriguing, and we knew we just had to stay here. Of course, the number one reason was the location! Just a block away from Mid-Town, there was no need to get a cabin elsewhere. Everything was in walking distance: shops, restaurants, and bars! And yes the neighborhood is a safe place to leave your car parked right next to the cabin.

The inside was nice and cozy. The main room had an air/heater unit as did the main bedroom. This was perfect since it was cold several nights we were there and if that wasn't good enough, blankets are provided. Talking about things provided, this cabin has everything and better than a hotel. The kitchen was fully equipped with dishes, pots, pans, untensils, even salt and pepper! I enjoyed the fact that we were able to cook our breakfast there and grill our dinner out in the back deck/patio. I even ate several times outside, just to enjoy the view and hear the river below us. Yes this cabin is above the river, all you need to do is go to the backyard and take several stairs down, the river is just below another deck and I liked that there was a bench on that lower deck, where you could just sit, relax, and enjoy the river.

Yes there is a TV, Internet, and Dish Network for those who need that entertainment. There is also a hot tub outback for your enjoyment. If you have other people staying with you, then there are 2 extra beds down below the house, and laudry facilities. There is also a shower/tub combo in the restroom and towels are provided. I surely would stay here again and the owner does a great job keeping the cabin nice!!

The cabin was very cozy and is the perfect size for any family. It's right off the main strip and almost everything is in walking distance. We will defently be returning to this cabin.

“Charming Cabin, Great Location”
Reviewed April 2, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I've stayed here before and this time I recommended it when we were looking for a place to stay as part of an office ski retreat. I love the retro feel and now they've had a hot tub installed! The property backs up to a creek, so the view is lovely, but the cabin is literally a block away from the main street, meaning that we were able to walk to most of the restaurants and bars. Clean, good price and management is super easy to work with. Just an all around great experience, so I thought I would give them a shout out :) I'll definitely be back.

“Love it!”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I loved this rental. It was very cozy and felt like a home. I LOVED the close proximity to all the shops and dining. We could eat, drink and shop without ever loading up into the car. We really enjoyed being able to slide into the hot tub after a full day of skiing. So quiet and serine. Nothing beats sitting out on the patio and listening to the river below.

“Cozy, Warm Cabin in Fabulous Location”
Reviewed March 27, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We loved this cabin for many reasons. There was separate sleeping areas, the hot tub for apres ski and the incredible location for bars and restaurants. The retro kitchen was really cute. There were plenty of dishes, cooking utensils as well as towels, etc. That is a bit rare in some of these. The location is perfect for shopping as well. MIdtown is such a cool part of Ruidoso. We will definitely go again and again.
