Ok, if you go to a resort town I guess you should expect to pay higher prices. And this lodge room was no exception. Ruidoso is a VERY crowded tourist mecca and this place was right on a busy road. We almost backed into a...More

Good location and close to town. Kitchenettes were well stocked and coffee in the cabin makes it very convenient. Cabins are adorable, quiet and very comfortable. Being pet friendly just adds to the convenience of renting this cabin overnight.

If you are coming down on Mechem, turn right at the stop light by Ranchers and Ace to go in to the Upper Canyon. Directions are also in the confirmation emails they send.
