From feeding the deer outside in the morning to counting the bears inside at night this was perfect for our 4 kids (5-12). Horseback riding, walking along the creek downtown, hiking up a hill, finding our way through the maze, enjoying the activities and wonderful show at the Flying J Ranch, and White Sands made it an enjoyable 4 days with this cozy cabin to come back to each day. Many thanks to the owners who thought of everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay!

Papas bear cabin is a wonderful vacation home, it is fully furnished and has excellent accommodations for a family vacation. We greatly enjoyed the owners hospitality, I highly recommend this as a vacation rental it felt like we were at our own house and enabled us to relax and enjoy the sites in and around Ruidoso , New Mexico ! Jeremy and Sharon at made us feel right at home , when we checked-in and checked out of the cabin. The neighborhood is very quite and beautiful and we even saw deer walking through the yard ! Thank you so much ! The Crenshaw family !

We stayed in Papa Bear's the week of July 17th-21st. It was the perfect cabin for us! There were 6 of us and we all had our own comfy sleep space. Loved the fire pit on the back porch, loved watching all the wildlife come right up out of the woods to say hello. The mule deer will come up and eat right out of your hand (they love bananas and cheerios lol). Great spot for bird watchers too! There was a hummingbird feeder and we must have seen a million different species of hummingbirds come by for a drink. The ravens were fun to watch too. The cabin was even equipped with a cabinet full of board games and jigsaw puzzles for those lazy or rainy days! It was super clean and decorated beautifully.

We stayed here during the summer it's a tradition every year. I've only stayed in Rio a few times and it's always in the summer because the weather is always so amazing this time of year. We loved the cabin it was alot larger than we expected. Had a blast counting all the bears in the cabin. The owners had a great list of things to do so that made our trip way more eventful than we were expecting.

We saw a million deer and bears! Wildlife is absolutely amazing.would and will be coming back next year for sure.
Must go to flying j and zip lining!
