Our stay at Casa de Angeles was more than we ever expected, everything was perfect, comfortable, tranquil and the stars at night from the deck were incredible.
The furnishings and décor were perfect can not say enough about our time spent here.
We had a great time at this cabin. The owners made it super easy. The cabin was nice and clean in a secluded area in the forest but not too far from town. Lots of wildlife all around. Definitely would recommend and would stay here again.
This was a great cabin for our family of 4. It was clean and cozy. The kitchen was well equipped. Our kids really enjoyed playing near the creek and in the morning, there were SO MANY DEER crossing right through the property. It was such a treat! I would say the only thing we would have changed was that there was no curtain on the big front window. During the day, it’s a beautiful view but at night, I would have like a little bit of privacy. Still, overall, we’d definitely go back again.
This is a lovely cabin set along a creek where the deer come in to feed and drink. We spotted a nice variety of birds. The cabin is tastefully decorated, has all the necessary cooking supplies, and plenty of nice linens. The floor plan is compact with a combination living, dining and kitchen, with one bedroom and small bath on the bottom floor, and a loft bedroom upstairs. There is a small deck off the loft that faces the cliff behind the house, very private.
Things to help you plan - Cable TV, fast WIFI, stacks of books and DVDs, full size fridge, microwave, no dishwasher, stack washer and dryer, lots of thoughtful small amenities. The dryer seemed to take about twice as long to dry, but the washer and dryer are a huge convenience. The large front window does not have blinds or curtains, providing a clear view into the cabin from the street, especially at night when interior lights are on. If you didn't bring a robe or cover-up, we found two robes in the closet.
An internet search using the term "remote cabin" brought up this cabin among the hits. The cabin is actually in a neighborhood along a canyon road that was surprisingly busy during the day, especially morning and evening work-drive times. However, there was not a lot of road noise. If you walk the road, be careful of, especially pickup trucks, driving fast and kicking up gravel. The house is set about 75 feet off the road, the closest house maybe 200 feet to one side, nothing close on the other side. The pine tress help the "mountain cabin-y" feel.
There is nice hiking further down the road. This is an area of private in-holdings surrounded by Forest Service lands. There are campgrounds and trails just off the highway at the entrance into this canyon. It is a short drive to the grocery store, gas stations, and restaurants. The Krogers was stocked as well as any big city grocery store with a surprisingly cosmopolitan variety.
This was a nice base for visiting sites along the Billy the Kid Scenic Byway. Among the many sites - Lincoln National Forest, Sierra Blanca mountains, Ruidoso River, Hubbard Museum of the American West, and Fort Stanton with its pre-civil war history through WWII, from Billy the Kid and Buffalo Soldiers and General "Blackjack" Pershing. And the historic town of Lincoln, site of the Lincoln County Wars and the famous escapades of Billy the Kid. It's also an easy drive to the Three Rivers National Petroglyph Site.
The owner was very accommodating on short notice, good communication. We really enjoyed their cabin and would definitely go back.
Great little cabin in a great location. Super clean and had everything my family needed. It was great to return to Ruidoso after many years.
