The owners were the best and the cabins were clean and homey. Beautiful area in the mountains. This is a great escape for a weekend with friends or for the faniky. I would highly recommend this spot for anyone wanting to get away for a night or two!

The grounds and cabins are all kept very clean. The cabin itself was roomy and had everything we needed. The fans are a nice touch. Parking, compared to other places is great. There is ample sleeping space as well. Now for the downsides. The check in process left me uncertain. Their is no "office" to walk into. The door was...

My wife and I and our friends stayed at cabin number 11 on presidents day weekend. We had an excellent time and we're very pleased with the cabin. The accommodations were clean and very reasonably priced, especially compared to other cabins in the area. We were within a half hour drive of the slopes and within walking distance of the...

If you're looking for super-fancy, keep looking. If you're satisfied with clean, comfy, competitive prices and a quiet place in the midst of busy Ruidoso, look no further. My husband and I stayed in one of the smaller cabins and found it perfectly adequate for the two of us. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen stocked. The owner is personable....

We first came to the Ponderosa cabins in the early 1970s....and we keep coming back. While these rustic cabins are located in town, you would never know it because they are in a wooded area near the river and are so quiet. The cabins have fire places and small kitchens and are stocked with everything you need from towels to...
