The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They really made our stay very easy and stress free. The Wi-Fi was better than most of the places we've stayed. You definitely feel welcome and at home staying here. The bedrooms had plenty of space and the heaters made it very warm our entire stay. I would definitely stay here again and...

We planned a last minute getaway right after Christmas. We lucked out and found availability at the Ponderosa Cabins. It was great. The owner was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. They even supplied the firewood for the fireplace in our bedroom! It was secluded but within...

Wonderful place to stay with family. Large family room with fire place. Very quiet and cozy. Close to the shops and river. Had a group of 9 and we all fit just fine. Staff was very helpful. Cabins were clean and warm.

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...

Had such a great stay. Jules was friendly and wanted to make sure that everything was fine. Cabin was clean and comfortable. I would not stay anywhere else in rudioso. Planning a return trip soon but for a much longer time. Quiet and rustic environment.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Cabin 14! It was the perfect size for us and our German Shepherd. The cabin was very clean and the shower had great pressure and water temperature. I also loved having a full kitchen. The owner was kind enough to lend me a casserole pan when I couldn't find one in...

It is a great place to stay. It is close to the middle of town but you feel like you are in the woods. It is quiet and peaceful. There wasn't very many cabins occupied and the owner was on vacation. So there were a few days we couldn't get clean towels because housekeeping wasn't around. We stayed in the...
