“Great Accomodations convenient but quiet”
Reviewed March 23, 2009

Shadow Mountain Lodge is a very well maintained hotel at the beginning of Upper Canyon. This means it's walkable to all the shops but it is also relatively quiet. Cars pass by to get to the Upper Canyon cottages but it is nothing like the 4 lane traffic on Main Street. The grounds are very well kept and the rooms are spacious and very clean. I think all rooms are similar with a king bed, nice kitchenette, fireplace and 2 person sofa. The lodge is advertised for couples. Very nice!

My husband and I have just spent one night at Shadow Mountain.
We wish we could have stayed longer. We chose a cabin rather than the actual lodge. The cabin was excellent. Extremely clean, modern and spacious enough for two people. This is a couples only lodge which makes for peace!! It had a wonderful fireplace and TV that swivelled so you could watch fromt he jacuzzi for two or the bedroom or living room and kitchenette. All in all a super place and if we visit Ruidoso again we will definately stay there.
It is also central to everything in town. I just hope when we decide to return there is a cabin available!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in one of the cabins and it was very cute and romantic. Plus, the people working here were great. I left my jacket there on accident and they actually called me to let me know and see if I wanted them to mail it. If we return to Ruidoso, this is where we'll stay.

This was a wonderful retreat and 2nd honeymoon for my husband and I the week after Christmas. It snowed all day for several days and was just picture perfect! We love this place and look forward to staying here again this year.

We had such a nice time last year, we decided to go again. We stayed in one of the four cabins on the property and really loved every minute. You are close to Midtown and really everything, yet still in the woods. The cabins are very modern and have everything that you need to relax and enjoy yourself.

There is a living room with two recliners, a fireplace, TV, DVD, VCR with surround sound. The TV swivels around to the bedroom. Bathroom has two person jacuzzi tub/shower. Full kitchen. Everything is nice and clean.

There is a front porch and outdoor grill.

These properties are kept very nice and clean and the owners are really nice people.

  • Liked — All the modern conveniences in a quiet wooded setting and the hummingbirds!
  • Disliked — Nothing really

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we traveled through Ruidoso. I found this place through Frommers, and I was very happy with the accomodations. We stayed in one of the 4 cabins here at the site, and were quite pleased with our entire stay. The cabin was put together well, with a fireplace, jaccuzi two person tub, and my favorite, two lazyboy chairs. The person working the front desk, Ruthy, was very helpful and not only reserved dinner for us at the Texas Club restaurant, but also gave us a great breakfast recommendation. If you are looking for a nice place to get away, this is a great place!
