Reviewed 19 January 2018 for a stay in November 2017

My husband, our granddaughter and I stayed here for Thanksgiving. I cooked/prepared the entire Thanksgiving meal and desserts at our home in Texas. That way, I wasn’t spending the the entire Thanksgiving day cooking. It’s about a eight hour drive to a Ruidoso. I made a list of other things to pick up at the Walmart in Ruidoso which was right there off the highway we were on. We got to the cabin around 9:00 Wednesday night. Fell in love with it feeling so cozy and homey! Beautiful Thanksgiving Day! Snow! YAY! I put everything in the oven and we kicked back and watched the parades, football, movies and ate pretty much off and on all day! Next day went to town and I think all the stores were open. It was the best time ever staying in that cabin. Saw deer all around the cabin every day! Hated to leave on Sunday. The cabin is clean and comfortable. We will be going back soon. You’ll not regret staying there. And the staff we talked to at the office were very helpful and nice!

“Minimal amenities, unwelcoming messages re: fines if you do this, fines if you don't do that. Will not stay here again.”

This cabin itself is a charming older residence among many other cabins near downtown Riudoso. However, the main message from the owners/rental agents is that you better do this or not do that or you will be fined. Sign over the kitchen sink says "$50.00 fine if you don't properly wash all dishes." Rules, of course, are necessary but the numerous threats were most unwelcoming. To top it off, a jar of instant coffee was provided. A resort area cabin with instant coffee! You may have to pay more for a better place to stay, but it will be worth it if you are staying more than one night.

We stayed for Spring Break. Great location to base our vacation out of. Went to Ski Apache for two days, Roswell one day and White Sands one day. I was pleasantly surprised with the cabin. It was much nicer than the photos and very clean. The section of the neighborhood where this cabin is situated is very crowded. However, since it is on the corner with an empty lot adjacent, it was fine. LOTS of deer show up in the afternoon around 3:00. They will come right up to you. Would definitely stay here again.

Our family enjoyed staying at this cabin. Although I was a little creeped out at all the spider webs on the ceilings, fans, and corners (I don't like spiders); the cabin was very nice and we had a great time. We enjoyed seeing all the deer and even got to see a huge bull Elk right outside the front door! The DVD player didn't work, but we were able just to watch regular TV shows at night. We would definately stay there again.

Those darn spiders love to use our cabins just as much as the people seem to. We have gone up with some spray to help keep them away. The Dvd player has been fixed correctly and should be working (I'll see if I can get a copy of Arachnophobia up there for guests to watch). We just love the deer/elk in the area up there, they will come right up and ask for a snack with no fear. Please get in touch when you are ready to come back and we will get you taken care of.

We enjoyed our stay at the Upper Canyon Retreat in Ruidoso very much. The cabin was clean, well organized, and very well stocked with all the needed items. The size of the cabin and the location were perfect for us and our two 4-legged babies. We enjoyed very much watching the deer that came up behind and across from the cabin in the evenings. We look forward to coming to Ruidoso again and will most assuredly stay in one of your cabins.
