We were so pleasantly surprised by our cabin! I did not feel as though the website did the cabin justice and didn't really convey the overall property. It was just two of us for 3 nights- we didn't need much space. We chose cabin 5, called moose. The website has a few pictures, an amenities list, and a video of...

Once we got here, we were welcomed by the owners that were very nice and helpful. The cabin #9 was a great place to stay! They go above and beyond to make our stay very pleasant with nice amenities to make this stay great. We will be back here for sure in the near future with some family. Just try...

My husband and I stayed at the Story Book cabins in Ruidoso, NM for a little r & r. The cabin, number 8, was well kept and clean. The only complaint I had was the strong smell of smoke coming from the mattress. The smell came from the fireplace that is routinely used. I suggest that the mattresses be steamed...

After sorting through the many lodging choices that are available in Ruidoso, we decided on Storybook cabins, and I think this one would be hard to beat! We were looking for a small, comfortable cabin for two adults and one toddler with a bit of yard as we had hoped for snow and would be able to walk out the...

We stayed in the Papa Bear cabin. We had 4 adults and 7 children. The cabin was clean and had a nice layout. We had an issue with the water heater, which my husband had to relight several times but luckily, it was only the first night that we didn't have hot water, which for us wasn't that big of...

We always stay with Story Book when we are in the area. The cabins are nice and clean with everything you need. We enjoy preparing our own meals so the full kitchens and gas grills are perfect. The owners couldn't be nicer and they are very helpful to your every need. Each cabin has a good supply of firewood for...

Lovely, newer, well-appointed cabins. Spotless, spacious and very comfortable. You supply the food and beverage while they supply the firewood, coffee, and just about everything else. There's an impressive DVD library of films to choose from along with games for the kids. Management is friendly, genuinely warm and helpful. Great for a girls' weekend or family vacation. We'll be back....

I was super impressed with the cabin we stayed in #5. The pictures online didn't do it justice. We felt welcomed and the sparkling cider they provided for our anniversary was a huge plus. Customer service when we checked out was not the best, but we loved it!

These cabins are well maintained...not a speck of dust or dirt could be found! Woke up to a family of deer grazing on the front lawn. The new owners are to be commended for their enthusiasm and friendliness. Would not hesitate to re-book the next time we are in the area.
