Shadow Mountain Lodge and Cabins

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Although we were traveling on business, this lodge made it a wonderful vacation. We stayed in a cabin and loved every minute of it. Immaculately clean and comfortable. Would have never thought I would enjoy a love seat recliner but it was SO comfortable. The pass through fireplace was perfect early in the morning and at night. Can't wait to go back for a "pleasure only " trip. This will be the only place we stay in Ruidoso from now on!

Stayed: September 2012

We had a wonderful weekend at the Shadow Mountain Lodge. The lodge is pet friendly, it feels like a family gathering rather than a business. The location is great because you get the benefit of the upper canyon and have easy access to town. We received excellent recommendations on local favorite eating places. The grounds are well kept and nothing beats sitting on the front porch enjoying the humming birds! Chuck and Marilyn made us feel very welcome!

We really enjoyed our stay at Shadow Mountain Lodge. Enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the deer and the humingbirds right in the front yard. Location was great, we could walk to the shop on Main Street or walk along the Ruidosa River.

In Ruidoso for Labor Day weekend and take in All American Derby and Futurity. Although the weather was hot the races were good and Shadow Mountain cabin was perfect for two. We stayed in cabins, not lodge, and the cabin was great. It was very clean , modern and comfortable. Chuck and Marilyn are doing a good job and they were very hospitable.

Our much anticipated and much needed weekend getaway in Ruidoso, New Mexico proved just the tonic our tired souls needed -- but the BEST part, by far, was our stay in one of the little cabins at Shadow Mountain Lodge. Immaculately clean, comfortable, well furnished -- right down to the kitchenette -- the cabin proved an ideal retreat. There was plenty to strike out to see from our vantage place at the edge of town, but each day we'd return to our cozy cabin at Shadow Mountain Lodge and enjoy a cold glass of wine and a great book in the chairs on our covered porch. Ahhhhhhh -- heaven!

We visited Ruidoso, NM for six days to escape the heat in Texas. This lodge is under new ownership. Chuck and Marilyn were excellent hosts. We stayed in cabin 304 rather than one of the lodge rooms. The cabin was small but certainly adequate for our needs. We had some friends join us overnight and they stayed in room 109 of the lodge. Both the cabin and the room were very clean. The lodge room was slightly larger but did not have the privacy that the cabin offered. The entire staff was very friendly as was everybody we met in town. The grounds of Shadow Mountain Lodge were manicured to perfection. From the street, this place was head shoulders above the other lodge and cabins in the area. Most of the others looked pretty old and run down. The lodge is only a mile or two from the main business district. I have no problem recommending a stay at this lodge.

After searching at the last minute for a place to stay in Ruidoso, we were fortunate enough to find Shadow Mountain and were very pleasantly surprised with the accomodations and atmosphere. The garden is absolutely beautiful and the rooms were clean, cozy and quite comfortable. This is a place I look forward to visiting again and for much longer next time! Kudos to the owners for providing such a wonderful retreat.
