Stay at Peaceful EZ Feeling, was amazing, very clean & comfortable, our family relaxed and enjoyed it. We will definitely return soon. Kitchen was very well stocked they thought of everything. Very beautiful home!

Tucked Away:
This place was just as it was described in the advertisement. The cabin was clean and comfortable with plenty of household amenities. We only cooked breakfast, but the kitchen was well stocked to prepare any daily meal. Lucky for us the roads were good and clear, however if the weather would have been bad the drive may have been a little more adventurous, especially for those of us coming from the city. The hot tub was clean and the temperature was just right, especially for a cold evening which made it really refreshing. The furniture throughout was nice and comfortable, from the sofa to the beds and the hot water never turned cold at any time throughout our stay. Having the convenience of a washer and dryer made the preparation to leave much simpler by being able to tackle any laundry prior to leaving giving you one less thing to do when you return home. This place was right on point. The only issue experienced during this stay was an annoying spot on the television; although not huge, it was just enough of a deterrence to interfere with watching the NFL playoff games. I will definitely rent this cabin again.

We enjoyed our stay at Birds Eye View. The house was very clean and neat, which we appreciated.The last time we stayed at a vacation rental in a different city the house was filthy. We had a nice view off the back deck and we enjoyed the hot tub. A peaceful getaway for a few days and Ruidoso is always fun.

dominik mendoza January 16, 2018 at 1:32 am

We loved the cabin so beautiful and comfy the only negative is whit TripAdvisor they really need to look ate family’s whit Service dogs to let the owners know that they can’t deny Stay of a rental cause of this the fair housing act for Service dogs Protects us on that

Hummingbird Cabins January 17, 2018 at 6:51 pm

Thank you for sharing about service dogs. Hummingbird Cabins will always allow you to stay with us with your service dog at any time; and at all properties.

Our family stay at Rascal’s Retreat was wonderful! The cabin is very nicely decorated and since it was New Year’s still had all the Christmas decorations out! We enjoyed the hot tub under a full moon that weekend and enjoyed the daily deer sightings. We will definitely be back!

Miguel Medina December 26, 2017 at 8:51 pm

We had a great time at our cabin Baloo’s Bunkhouse. Cabin exceeded our expectations, very clean. My little cousins loved the Christmas Tree in the living area. Had a relaxing time in the hot tube even though it was in the 30’s outside. I met up with some family from East Texas that had never been to Ruidoso before, and they loved everything about Ruidoso as well as the cabin. Planning on booking with Hummingbird Cabins again pretty soon. Thank you!

S. Davis December 22, 2017 at 5:20 pm

We just stayed in Sierra Pines Escape for one week. The house was perfect for the 5 of us.Plenty of room for all! Beautiful views of Sierra Blanca mountain with a huge yard.Gourmet kitchen was set up better than was expected. Great fireplace in spacious family room. The whole house had the best in Tv and entertainment. All in all, it was a perfect place to stay and would highly recommend it for everyone!!

Hummingbird Cabins January 17, 2018 at 6:54 pm

Sierra Pines Escape has changed it’s name to Apache Pines Estate as to not get confused with other cabins in Ruidoso with similar name to Sierra Pines. We hope you can visit again soon.

Paul Burns & Cheryl Kidder December 21, 2017 at 3:07 pm

We enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Cabin in Ruidoso. Beautiful views, quiet area, comfy beds and crackling fireplaces. Would stay here again.

Navarro Nassri Family December 21, 2017 at 12:33 am

We were very happy in our stay at High Cotton Cabin, we saw a lot of deer’s just in front of Us, was an amazing experience. The installations were very clean and comfortable. We will return in our next vacations.

Summer December 6, 2017 at 12:45 am

Our weekend at Rascal’s Retreat couldn’t have been any better. The cabin is amazing! Comfortable all around! The driveway was a bit scary. I slid right out while holding down the brake.

Bob November 29, 2017 at 11:22 pm

Spent 2 nights at the Whirlaway Cottage. Hot tub and sauna were great! Cottage was very clean. Had a really good time!

Elias Rosales November 27, 2017 at 5:51 pm

We stayed at the mountain chalet and it was probably the best decision we could have made! The chalet was extremely comfortable with plenty of room for 5 adults and 3 kids! The community areas like the kitchen and living room were great with updated appliances. And speaking of community areas, the deck allowed for some great views! And the proximity to town was awesome too. I will definitely be staying at the mountain chalet on my next getaway!

Mr. Rios November 25, 2017 at 2:43 pm

Our stay at Touch of Santa Fe cabin was nice. Great location and access to the road even when we drove a small car. Rooms, hot tube and grill very clean. The neighborhood very quite and nice views, deer everywhere and we could feed by hand.

My only recommendation is unblock sports and HBO channels.

Manuel Enciso December 19, 2017 at 5:33 pm

Mr. Rios,

Thank you for your feedback and we glad you enjoy your stay at our cabin, “Touch of Santa Fe”. We currently offered 7 to 10 additional Showtime channels besides our basic cable. We will definitely be considering adding extra sports channels and HBO channels in the near future. Please come visit us again!

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Heppy Bears Cabin. It was very cute & comfortable. Water heater working the first night but maintenance was there very quickly to fix it. Only complaint was that master bedroom smelled slightly of dog poop.

Jean Ridley November 7, 2017 at 2:35 am

Water heater wasn’t working

Kyla Dugan November 6, 2017 at 3:55 pm

Our stay at Jack Little Lodge was perfect for our large group. We were in town for my daughters wedding. We will definitely use hummingbird cabins rental, if and when the need arises again in the future.

Marco A. Nava October 26, 2017 at 6:47 pm

Had a very nice weekend in Ruidoso. We stayed in the “Fairway to Heaven” cabin. Our stay there was very relaxing and enjoyable. We would like to thank the owners for helping make our stay there very comfortable. Would love to go back again someday. Sincerely, Charlotte/Mike Navarre and Gloria/Marco A. Nava.

Krystal October 25, 2017 at 6:45 pm

Absolutely the perfect cabin! I loved the upstairs loft and waking up to have coffee on the deck and watch the deer wonder by. We stayed at sunset cabin and it was amazing every step we took outside or on a balcony was like a breathe of fresh air. Beautiful scenery. We took my dad for his 50th birthday and he did not want to come back home to Texas haha. Thank you so much we will be returning in the near future.

Charlotte ODaniel October 24, 2017 at 10:42 pm

We had a wonderful time at Ruidoso in Antler Mountain Chalet. The house was roomy, clean, and so peaceful. The deer came everyday and ate from our hands.
We will certainly go again. Thank you.

Barbie & James October 11, 2017 at 2:50 pm

We stayed for a week at Lazy River Hideaway and it was absolutely wonderful. It was a very comfortable place to stay and plenty of room. The view from the back porch is amazing and its so peaceful there. I would recommend staying here.

Carolyn Nance October 10, 2017 at 7:37 pm

We stayed at the Touch of Santa Fe, beautiful cabin, up in the tall pines, thanks for providing deer pellets, enjoyed feeding them in the am/pm. The hot tub was a delight, we had a full moon one night, tons of stars. The beds were real comfy. Only one complaint, in the master bath, it looked like the floor had not been cleaned, lots of long black hair all over, & no toilet tissue was provided, the guest bath had one partial roll, so glad I took one from my house. Would absolutely want to stay there again.

Manuel Enciso December 19, 2017 at 5:11 pm

Dear Carolyn,

We are glad you enjoy your stay at our cabin, “Touch of Santa Fe”. Thank you for your feedback and we apologize about the bathroom floor and the minimum toiletries provided during your stay. We will address this issue with Hummingbird management. Please come back and visit us again!
Thank you.

Owners, “Touch of Santa Fe”

Lewis Westbrook October 3, 2017 at 8:10 pm

We stayed at Nell’s Getaway. Everything was wonderful. We could not have asked for more. One suggestion: Do not assume that everyone is familiar with an alarm system. Please give more instructions on what needs to be done and in what time period after the door is unlocked. Thanks for everything.

DONNA NELL November 16, 2017 at 4:10 pm

Thanks for choosing our little house! We will make sure to include make management aware of the necessary instructions.

Sonya Rivera September 24, 2017 at 9:52 pm

Our stay at Knotta Bear Cabin was very relaxing and great. The parking was a bit of a challenge with trailers and motorcycles but we made it work. Besides that the place was nice and stocked, everything worked. I will definitely stay again.

Priscilla September 19, 2017 at 4:12 am

Our stay in Almost Heaven was great. Cabin was nice and cozy and had everything we needed for the weekend. Enjoyed the hot tub in the fresh, breezy nights and the beautiful nature in the quiet mornings.

Greg Mckenzie September 26, 2017 at 11:21 pm

We had a blast at shadow mountain pond.Hot tub was great.Deer and elk right in the yard both days!!!pool table was alot of too!!!!

Jessica Clement September 18, 2017 at 5:25 pm

Stayed at the Wine Down Cottage for 7 days while visiting for my birthday. It was beautiful and well managed. The cottage was clean and stocked perfectly. It was within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Perfect space for 2 people. Loved my vacation and am so excited to stay here again!

John September 11, 2017 at 10:57 pm

Pine Tin Inn was nice but probably a little overpriced for the value. A little quirky – 2nd bedroom is really a loft with minimal privacy (bathroom is open to the den below !?) Bedroom TV didn’t get service. No AC. It was nice as a touchdown area with minimal time actually spent in the cabin. Convenient location. Irritated that we weren’t allowed to check in or even drop off bags until 4:00 without paying $80 more dollars – cabin was clean and vacant for days prior, so I don’t understand why you have to get another fee out of the only interested renter that you had for the cabin.

Trent and Andrea Boone September 11, 2017 at 10:03 pm

Our stay was exactly what the both of us needed. Very relaxing, beautiful atmosphere, and gorgeous weather. We’ll definitely be back!

Gene & Christine September 6, 2017 at 7:16 am

We stayed in Peaceful EZ Feeling in Alto for a week… it wasn’t long enough. The house was clean throughout, the kitchen was well stocked, including aluminum foil, plastic baggies, spices, napkins, you name it, it was there… We were very glad these things were provided too since we forgot to pack the box with all these items and more! by the way, the bed was very comfortable – we and I both slept like babies. We thoroughly enjoyed the large picture windows, and the front deck. We were able to see an outdoor wedding taking place across the way from us. That was a treat, as were all the deer, chipmunks and birds that visited. We loved watching the hummers visit the Russian Sage out front. All in all, it was a very relaxing week at Peaceful EZ Feeling….

Heather Koehne September 5, 2017 at 8:17 pm

Thank you Hummingbird cabins! We stayed in the Cowboys & Angels Cabin & and it was absolutely fantastic! From the cute cabin decor, to amazing views from the hot tub on the deck, to the friendly wildlife (deer), our stay in Ruidoso was perfect! A special shout out to Marysol (sp?) with Hummingbird Cabins for so graciously working with me in a time of natural disaster and quick vacation changes! We had originally booked a Carnival Cruise out of Galveston TX from 8/26-8/31/17 but then the Cat 4 Hurricane Harvey was headed to the Texas Coast. We had
already gotten the time away from work and child care organized so we knew we still wanted a vacation! My mom had rented a cabin from Hummingbird cabins earlier that month and thoroughly enjoyed her stay and recommended we head to Ruidoso (away from the hurricane). So, the cabin was great, working with Hummingbird cabins was great, & our vacation in NM was great! Thanks so much!

We stayed at the Bird’s Eye View cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. No issues whatsoever. The Hummingbird management team appears to be well organized and renting with them is so easy. Their check in/out procedures are well written and just a matter of checking off the boxes. We have been searching for a cabin for two years now and have stayed in many rentals. Hummingbird is by far the best. When we find our cabin, Hummingbird will be our choice for property management.

Mike Flood August 22, 2017 at 6:52 pm

Loved our time at Valley View. Ruidoso was beautiful as always and the cabin had everything we wanted. Great views and hot tub! Also called Hummingbird to fix a broken balcony light and they were out within hours to fix it.

CATHY PATE August 22, 2017 at 5:48 pm

Obviously you did not receive my email comments sent while I was there. Basically the TX Hold ’em cabin was nice as represented on line. However the annoying and dirty things ruined a perfect visit. Carpet on stairs and bedrooms disgustingly dirty especially large stains and corners black on beige carpet. walls badly need paint job, dirty and chipped all corner walls. Our (first bedroom/bath on right at top of stairs. Bathroom had moving tub faucet and handle coming out of wall. Probably because no one could figure out how to turn shower on, the baseboard near tub had nail hanging out of it! TV in Bedroom did not work, except for “snow screen”, could not figure out how to fix & could not turn off. A/C unit in this bedroom very noisy so had to only use fan. Sheets were soooo wrinkled, but mattress very comfortable. No hangers in closet, no light or light fixture either. we didn’t even dare open the hot tub afraid of how it looked. Was nice having the decks for cool air. Lock on door , keyless great. But never sure if it was locked when we got inside cuz no deadbolt either. Your management company must not have “walk throughs” to check these complaints, or the housekeeping staff did not notice these things. Too bad. We plan to visit Ruidoso monthly.

Hummingbird Cabins August 22, 2017 at 8:14 pm

Dear Cathy,
Thank you for taking time to write a review that can be shared with others, they are very important to us. We did not receive any email correspondence from you that we can find in our records as our emails come in on a ticket system linked to the email from your reservation; the request for reviews are auto populated by our reservation system. The carpets were professionally cleaned on July 20th, but with 8 reservation between then and your arrival with only 7 unoccupied nights due to busy summer season they were most likely very well used. The hot tubs are serviced by a licensed independent contractor between every reservation and each week for all our properties. The owners are in the process of planning repairs and upgrades, but cannot complete them until latter part of this year. We will present them with your list, most of which is already in our maint system to be completed, but we were not aware of the TV so thank you for sharing. We hope to see you again soon.

We stayed at Dancing with Kokopellis from 8/14-8/20. It was a very pretty . The rooms were very spacious. We only had one problem with a ceiling fan. Hummingbird cabins were quick to fix it. This place can sleep 5 comfortably. Its super close to midtown and Albertsons. The beds are firm but not boards. The sofa and chairs are inviting. The bathroom doors are kind of small like 30″ so some walkers may not fit. The water is super hot nice for a relaxing bath. Plenty of deer and Elk around to enjoy. We loved our stay and can’t wait to go back.

Missy Peebles August 19, 2017 at 11:32 pm

We had a great time staying in the sunset cabin. Kids loved climbing the “mountain” out back and seeing the deer. Will definitely be back!

Deborah Landrum August 9, 2017 at 3:18 am

We had a great time staying in Hugh Breeze it was a great place!!! Customer service is great always!! Ready to come back!!!

Martha August 10, 2017 at 11:54 pm

We stayed at Rivers Edge, it was so nice and comfortable. I liked having the river running right in front of the cabin. We enjoyed the hot tub too. Can’t wait to go back.

Robin Johnson August 9, 2017 at 12:42 am

**Deer Meadows** 8/3/17-8/6/17**

We just returned from a 3 night stay at Deer Meadows. Our stay was wonderful! The cabin was perfect for our family getaway! I searched online for 2 days to find “the perfect place” for 3 adults & 2 kids.- Deer Meadows was that place! It was immaculate inside & out! Very nice & comfortable furnishings! I am very leery of hot tubs, but this one was great; clear chlorinated water, multiple light & jet settings & perfect temps! So many deer to enjoy watching! My 13 yr old had a doe walk up to her & put its nose in her hand! Thank you to the owners for making your cabin available & for providing great amenities! We had a very relaxing weekend celebrating my parents 40th anniversary & cousins wedding. Thank you Hummingbird Cabins & Deer Meadows!

We had one issue with the a/c not working due to a broken part in the attic. Maintenance was quick to try to make repairs & even offered to bring us fans at 11pm. We were quickly compensated for this issue.

Gleda Jackson August 8, 2017 at 7:38 pm

Our stay at the Cedar Lodge house was perfect for our family get together, There was plenty of room for us all we all had the best of time, my brother has stage four cancer and the memories we made there will always be in our heart, Thank You hummingbird cabin for all you do.

Diana August 8, 2017 at 3:25 pm

HEAVENLY PINES – We stayed for an extended weekend at this cabin…. Beautiful.. Clean…. Spacious… I would say the only thing that the next people renting should know is the vent for the Water Heater is under the front porch.. so when Hot water is used you get a “GAS” Smell which worried us until it was checked out… It is just a heads up so you don’t worry. Bring Bottled water as the water at the time we stayed came out of faucet brown for the first day and the water is so hard that it leaves things floating around…

Yolanda August 1, 2017 at 3:46 pm

We stayed at the Pines B4 Sunrise Cabin and had an overall good experience. However, the grill was broken, dirty, and out of propane so we were unable to grill as we had planned. The house was clean and very well stocked. There were some very noisy neighbors that stayed up partying until 5:00am one of the nights. The cabin has a great atmosphere and we would likely stay there again!

Hummingbird Cabins August 22, 2017 at 8:23 pm

Dear Yolanda,
Thank you for taking your time to share your experience. We hope you can come visit again soon, and next time please call us about noisy neighbors are quite time per Village regulation is 10:00 pm to 8:00 am. If ever you run out of propane we will gladly run another bottle up to you. Housekeeping has implemented a new way of maintaining the grills so that issue should be resolved for your next stay.

Rita Smith August 1, 2017 at 3:11 am

We loved “Peaceful EZ Feeling”! It was perfect for our family! The only suggestion I would give is to replace the mattress in the sofa bed. It was not comfortable at all. We loved the location, everything that was provided. The cabin was just great! Hummingbird was great to work with! We will use them again! Thanks!

Mrs. Mazel July 26, 2017 at 3:42 pm

Fantastic time. Very clean and very quite. Not too far from “town”.

Barbara Patterson July 25, 2017 at 1:53 pm

For the most part we enjoyed Cotton Pickin Cabin. We had issues with the comm0des stopping up and had to plunge them several times. The washer didn’t drain so we were unable to wash clothes. Called mainteince and they were no help. Otherwise we enjoyed Ruidoso and the Cabin.

Hummingbird Cabins July 26, 2017 at 12:22 am

Dear Barbara,
thank you for taking the time to write a honest review. Maintenance is working with the owner and other vendors to get the issues reslved. We hope you can visit again soon.

This was our second summer to stay with Hummingbird Cabins. We absolutely enjoyed Ruidoso and the cool mountain weather. We were unfortunately extremely displeased with our cabin this year.
When we arrived cabin had no less than 50 large flies flying around in it. The pictures on the website were deceiving, as cabin appeared to be secluded, when in actuality a very busy road ran within feet of the cabin. When sitting on the porch, all you could here was cars and trucks passing the cabin. There is also a large electrical substation close by that emits a humming sound.
The cabin is also extremely difficult to ambulated to. My elderly parents were unable to visit us as they would not have been able to gain entrance up the many steep stairs or severely inclined sidewalk which was advertised.
On top of all of this disappointment, the smoke detectors went off at 4:30 am one morning due to bad batteries. I can forgive that, but the flies and quality of the cabin for the price is disappointing. We will return to Ruidoso next summer, but never this cabin again, and more than likely not Hummingbird Cabins.

Shayd Martin July 24, 2017 at 5:34 pm

Hello, we recently stayed at Baloo’s Bunkhouse and the stay was just okay. I do believe the cabin was very overpriced. I have paid less and had a lot newer and nicer places to stay. Upon arrival the cabin was fairly clean but had a ketchup stain in front of the fridge and foul smell coming from underneath the sink. There were also a lot of cigarette butts and beer bottle caps on the patio and all around the property. I did pick most of them up and dispose of them properly. I mainly had two requests when I called to reserve a cabin and that was a hot tub and pool table. The hot tub water was a little cloudy and the jets did not work. I did call the office and they replaced the controller on the hot tub but it still did not function very well. The pool table was very used and did not have a full set of balls. I did call the office and they said you have to kind of fish them out of table. This was just a pain and we hardly used the table at all. There were also a lot of screws and some uneven boards sticking up on the deck, not very safe to walk on without shoes if you wanted too. Overall I think we paid way too much for the cabin but made a time out of it anyways. I will probably look at other rental companies and cabins before booking through Hummingbird again. The weather was awesome and we had a good time, just had the thought in the back of mind of how disappointed I was in the cabin, kind of a bummer. Thanks

doug green July 24, 2017 at 5:22 pm

Stayed at the Skyline Cabin, it has a decent view, but the cabin itself was not so great, creaky floors, very worn beds, hard to get to the dryer, no dishwasher. Trash not very close. Master toilette would not shut off most of the time, trash outside the balcony from the previous renters, paper plates, and plastic utensils on the ground. I guess they did not want to do dishes by hand.

Kristin Hancock July 24, 2017 at 3:08 am

We loved our time in Ruidoso, but Hummingbird cabins were very disappointing. The rate was very high and I was expecting a really special place. When we arrived, the porch was filthy, the wifi didn’t work (and continued to have issues the entire time. We are both business professionals, so we needed this to work efficiently to actually enjoy our stay). It was rainy one day so we stayed in to watch a movie… the speakers on one tv didn’t work and the other tv didn’t work either. The sink leaked and drained all over the floor. All the little things, like not being able to use the grill or this or that seem small, but for the amount of money we spent, I expected to be able to use all the features of the cabin. I’ve stayed in their cabins before and the first time was ok, but this time was probably the last time.

Rosalinda Bruce July 19, 2017 at 7:44 pm

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cabin on the Mountain. This was our third year to stay with Hummingbird and it has been great every time. The cabin was exactly as advertised, and we love the fact that you are pet friendly with most places. Thank you for providing a great vacation for our family.

Melissa July 19, 2017 at 3:57 pm

We enjoyed our stay at The Hideaway. The few minor items that needed attention were written on the comments card left for us at the cabin. Nothing major, just things that might not be noticed if not staying there. Thank you for a relaxing few days.

Beth Mata July 15, 2017 at 11:22 pm

This was our second stay with Hummingbird Cabins and we enjoyed it very much. Our stay at Almost Heaven was a very peaceful and much-needed getaway. The location was perfect and the cabin was also very inviting. We only had a couple of concerns. The mattresses in the downstairs bedrooms were very worn. One had the spring almost coming out and was poking the person staying the in bed; the other was visibly dipped inward in the middle. There were also quite a few cobwebs around the inside. I don’t know that we will select this cabin again; however, we will try another.

Lydia Espinoza July 11, 2017 at 7:35 pm

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Pine Tin Inn, I was very impressed with the beautiful furnishings and rugs were made of top quality material! The bathrooms were very very nice! We truly enjoyed using the large deck off the main door! We will definitely stay here again!

Cindy Jouett July 11, 2017 at 3:13 am

We had a wonderful visit to The Modern Elk, the house is perfect for one or two families and very clean! Thank you!

Dean Hartshorne July 11, 2017 at 1:19 am

Our family had a great time in Ruidoso with plenty to see and do in the area. It is a beautiful place to visit. The only negative was our stay in Texas Hold’Em apartment which management passes off as a cabin. The carpets are nasty. The “A.C.”s they provided have to run full blast which is very noisy couldn’t get one bedroom below 79 degrees at night and 82 during the day. A small investment would easily fix that if they were concerned. Everything about the accommodations smacked of being as cheap as possible. Also, there is no privacy for the hot tub. The neighbors are only about 20 feet and in full view. Very nice people but right there with you if you use the tub. The apartment is located about 3 blocks from the main strip so that was convenient though definitely not what anyone should consider to be a cabin.

Hummingbird Cabins August 22, 2017 at 8:07 pm

Dear Dean,
Thank you for taking time to leave a review about your stay and our apologies that you felt the description of the townhouse was representative of a cabin. The pictures show that their are neighbors in the townhouse community. The owners are in the process of upgrades and we had the carpet professionally cleaned on July 20th, although that was after your stay it is difficult to schedule with multiple summer guests. We hope to see you again soon, maybe at a different cabin.

We rented Nells Getaway and it was absolutely beautiful!!!!! The views were amazing and it was very tranquil! The cabin was decorated very lovely! We loved our stay! Customer service with hummingbird-cabins was amazing!!! They went above and beyond!!! We love traveling and by far the best service we’ve received in a while!

Michael Clayton July 5, 2017 at 1:59 pm

We truly enjoyed our stay in High Breeze. We plan to use Hummingbird Cabins when we return next year.

Todd and Charla Cogdill July 3, 2017 at 4:27 pm

We stayed in the Lone Star Altitude cabin June 26-29th. It was GORGEOUS!!! We’ve stayed at several cabins through Hummingbird and this cabin was THE best cabin by far!! The furniture was comfortable and beautiful. The appliances were top of the line. Kinda wish that the top deck was covered or partially covered, but didn’t keep us from sitting out there. The first night we were there, a storm blew through and took one of the umbrellas over the deck (even knocked over the table it was in). We tried to get it back on the deck but the pole was damaged severely and when we called, they were very gracious to us for letting them know. The game room was AWESOME!! We enjoyed the pinball machine and many games of pool were played! The hot tub and bottom deck were nice, as well.
No real issues except for the upstairs bathroom shower did not work, so traipsing downstairs to use the game room’s shower was pain. Spider webs were found and food under the loveseat were found. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay there and recommend this cabin!!!!

Hummingbird Cabins July 5, 2017 at 4:31 pm

So glad you had a great stay! The upstairs shower is a newer type that most guests are unable to operate and we have now added signage to show how to function based on this review. When you turn the farthest point of the handle it just spins and spins. It’s a decorative cap. The entire handle must be gripped to operate. Thank you for sharing your honest review. We hope you can visit again soon.

My family recently stayed at Lone Star Altitude and we had a fabulous time! The house was true to the pictures online and my 4 year-old loved her special bedroom with ladder, loft bed, and lookout into the living room. The amenities were as described and the view was amazing! Our issues were minor. The home was equipped with a security system that we weren’t aware of and didn’t have the code to disarm. We set the alarm off entering the property and had to call Hummingbird for assistance. We found cobwebs throughout the house and the upstairs shower wouldn’t turn on. These issues would not deter us from renting through Hummingbird again.

Lydia Espinoza June 27, 2017 at 3:14 pm

We just came back from our stay at the Pine Tin Inn, we loved this cozy cabin! The furnishing and the rugs were of high quality material, very plush! The cabin was very clean and comfy. Us 3 adults and 2 pups were very pleased with our overall stay. It was very relaxing! We would definitely stay here again.

Sheryl Simmons June 27, 2017 at 2:38 pm

Our stay at Rivers Edge with wonderful! The location was perfect. Convenient yet felt miles away from everything. I was extremely impressed with how clean the house was upon our arrival. We loved the hot tub and used it every evening! The sitting area down by the creek was my early morning retreat! We will definitely return!!! Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Molly Norris June 27, 2017 at 1:32 pm

We stayed at Tucked Away Cabin for a weekend of R&R and Ruidoso Down’s Racing. The cabin was very nice. The interior was clean and had everything we could want. We enjoyed the back porch which offered privacy and peaceful evenings with wildlife (and the hot tub!). The AC didn’t cool well, but that didn’t affect us as we were gone during the day and it was pretty cool mornings and night. We didn’t even notify the management until after we left Monday morning since it wasn’t a big deal. However we didn’t receive a response so I don’t know if they addressed the issue or not. The only other thing that could be better is the back porch and patio furniture was kind of dirty. Nothing that a good sweep and quick wipe off didn’t fix. Overall it was great for our needs and we enjoyed it!

Robyn Wright June 27, 2017 at 12:27 am

We stayed this weekend at the Valley View Cabin. Outside area and hot tub was nice, House needed updating and lots of dust and spiders. They must get complaints often because inside there was a note about the spiders and this being a mountain atmosphere. We have rented several other cabins and never had this problem. And the spiders were all alive, not dying. Seems they need to spray. Killed 2 in living area upon arrival and found multiple in downstairs bath and bedroom. Just not relaxing atmosphere. I was shocked that after being charged 177.30 for cleaning and fees that the instructions were left for us to basically clean the cabin. All towels except current day should be washed and put away. All dishes were to be washed and put away. All trash taken out to the dumpster down the street. All this to say if you didn’t extra fees would apply. Not to mention a super early check out of 10 am. We get home and read the fine print to say they can hold your security deposit up to 4 weeks. Think I will look elsewhere. Expensive trip for all the hassle and spiders. Ruidosa is awesome though, we enjoy all it has to offer each time we visit.

angel nieto June 26, 2017 at 7:37 pm

the cabin we stayed in “the tree house” was a delight. the location was perfect to enjoy nature.

Samantha June 21, 2017 at 3:52 am

We recently stayed at Montana Tranquila in Ruidoso for a Father’s Day getaway let me begin by saying the house was beautiful and enough space for our family. The views from the decks were spectacular and the atmosphere was so relaxing. The house offered many wonderful amenities, the hot tub was amazing. The downside of our stay was that the house did not cool down well, it was hard to get a good nights rest as hot as the house was. Another big downfall was the astonishing amount of spiders that were in the house. Our children could not fully relax because at every corner of the house there was a spider, at one point in our short stay we had to kill a centipede. Yuck!

Lucy June 26, 2017 at 8:28 pm

We stayed at cabin on the mountain. Such a beautiful cabin and breathe taking views. But the cabin lacks better cleaning. Dead bugs inside on window bases and spider webs on most windows and several areas in the cabin. All the window screens had webs. I understand we are in the mountains, but large webs are from lack of a good cleaning. But thank you for the views, really beautiful.

Iris lopez June 21, 2017 at 1:26 am

My family and I enjoyed our stay at rivers edge cabin. Great little cabin close to town. The jacuzzi was very relaxing. And the river up front was just beautiful. Definitely booking again!

Ronnie Jenkins June 19, 2017 at 7:04 pm

Our stay at Aspen Retreat was great. Thanks to the owners for sharing it with us. Our family of 8 had ample room and the cabin was clean and well stocked. The deck is very roomy and the hot tub was great. Close to town with a secluded feel it’s not right next to any other cabins. Also has ample parking for more than one vehicle if needed. We did have a minor lighting and hot tub issue but 1 call and within minutes both problems were fixed. Marisol and the other ladies I talked with on the phone are very helpful and sincere before and during our stays. This was our second time using Hummingbird and we will use them again. One day we will find our home away from home but until then we will continue trying out their different cabins lol. Hope to see y’all in October. Thanks for y’all service.

Margie Munoz June 15, 2017 at 8:58 pm

We stayed at the Lazy Moose Lodge on our yearly “Ladies Getaway” and we loved it. It is a beautiful home and the location is so nice too. We had enough room for all of us. I would come back. I do agree with someone that commented earlier (Allie) about how we are charged for throwing out trash or leaving dirty dishes. Mind you, we have never left a dirty home in all the years we have to Ruidoso. We don’t believe we need to leave the place dirty. But we are constantly reminded by notes left how we “have” to wash all towels except the last days use. We do pay a cleaning fee so we figure it should cover normal cleaning. I understand if you are left with filth then of course you should charge an extra fee. And the only thing I kinda have a complaint about is the fact that if we want to check in earlier than 4 o:clock we have to pay an extra fee. All the other places I have booked from the past years have always allowed us to go in as long as it wasn’t rented the day before. Of course if they checked out the day we check in then it is understandable to wait. We travel 4 hours to get there and have to wait before we can start enjoying Ruidoso. That alone would be the only thing that may keep me from booking through Hummingbird Cabins. But you have friendly office employees when I would call and like I said the home is beautiful. I would recommend it to everyone.

Kim June 15, 2017 at 2:24 pm

We stayed at the Little Bear Lodge. It is a wonderful property for a large group! Everything was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend Hummingbird Cabins when booking in the Ruidoso area.

Valerie Aguilar June 14, 2017 at 5:22 pm

My family and I stayed at the Cabin on the Mountain last weekend and we had a wonderful time! The cabin was perfect for the 8 of us (4 adults, 3 kids, and a dog)! It was very clean and had everything we needed for the weekend stay. The scenery was breathtaking and peaceful. We enjoyed the board games supplied as well as the hot tub. We had a busy weekend with softball tournaments and birthday celebrations so it was a nice escape at the end of our busy days. We definitely look forward to renting again in the future!

Sheila Thibault June 14, 2017 at 4:12 pm

We loved Bear Crossing, the view is amazing and the deck was perfect to enjoy the view!!! The home had plenty of room and was stocked well with all that you need and convenient to all the attractions! Plus, the temperature was great outside, 70-80 degrees all week with no humidity which was a joy since we live in Kansas. We would love to come back someday!

Jesica R. June 8, 2017 at 9:10 pm

We just got back from staying at Knotta Bear Cabin. It exceeded my expectations. 4 adults and 4 kids. Everything was just as described online. We had no issues whatsoever. It was very easy to find and close to town. Pretty close to all the main attractions also. We will definitely be using Hummingbird Cabins for our future trips to the Beautiful Ruidoso. You can’t go wrong with them. I wish I was still there. Can’t wait to go back!!

Craig Shires June 5, 2017 at 3:18 pm

Snap Crackle Pop! That would be a better suited name for Bridge to Paradise cabin. Neat construction on the home, but that was the noisiest place that I have ever stayed in. All through the morning, and evening, the house constantly popped and groaned as the temperatures changed and the different materials of wood, concrete, and metal expanded and contracted at different rates. At times it sounded like there were elk on top of the roof, I had to verify that was not the case a few times. House also did not have a can opener. Really? It was not very well apportioned. House was neat, very noisy, needs some TLC. Pictures made it look a lot better than it was. I have stayed five different Hummingbird Cabins, and this one is a little over priced for what you get.

Bernie & Judy Brezina Richmond, Texas June 4, 2017 at 10:56 pm

Many thanks to Hummingbird and Condo owner for providing us a fabuluous 5 days stay in Dancing with the Kokopelli’s” . We have visited Ruidoso for many years and stayed at many locations, but none with the view we had of the beautiful Cree Meadow golf course fronting the Sierras and the big mountain. Wow! The condo was immaculate and well equipped to handle all of our needs plus, walking distance to downtown shopping. We will definitely return to this excellent venue.

Juan Macias June 2, 2017 at 4:46 am

Stayed at CAsa Divine for Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately the property was not in good condition. Spider webs everywhere in every room which we had to immediately clean. When was the last time this property was cleaned?? Theres no way they could of been missed on all windows, doors, restrooms. On the first level we saw a mouse as soon as we got there. An hour later we would see spiders everywhere, but one room seemed to be infested with spiders. We did not take a change to let our kids into that room and since it was next to the pool table room we decided to not even use it. We called next day and you sent a guy to give us a bottle of RAID so we could spray it. I though that was not taking care of us. We followed instructions to leave place clean and we did even the electric grill which was super dirty when we got there. Then we had to go buy an extension cord to connect electric grill since outside electricity connections are not in reach. I understand you guys are busy and cant control some things but this was ridiculous. Some type of refund should be considered. This was not a pleasant stay.

Kerry May 31, 2017 at 1:43 am

We stayed at Peacefull Ez Feeling Cabin. It was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful, clean and peaceful Cabin. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a nice relaxing get a way!

Jason May 30, 2017 at 3:04 pm

Overall, we were pleased with the Hideout Cabin. It was charming and secluded. Inside was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. However, the hot tub was a little outdated. It was hard to keep it up to temp and would constantly cycle the jets with no way of turning them off. At times, the jets would continue running for hours into the night and it was right outside our bedroom window so very noisy.

Hummingbird Cabins May 31, 2017 at 12:00 am

Dear Jason,
Thank you for taking the time to write a very honest review and share your experience at Hideout. The current hot tub is run on 110, which does delay heating in some circumstances. We are very excited to announce that the owners have ordered a new hot tub scheduled to arrive within the next few weeks and it will be upgraded to 220 so as to not be as noisy and allow for quicker heating. We hope you can visit again soon.

Three friends and I stayed at Altitude Adjustment in Ruidoso for nearly a week and absolutely loved it. We did have a little bit of a setback when we first arrived on the Saturday evening: The bed in one of the bedrooms hadn’t been finished, with the pillows all over the floor and the comforter missing (we managed to find a spare comforter in a closet somewhere in the house); the commode in the main level guest bath was very dirty, the sink would only drain extremely slowly, one of the sofas was missing a back cushion, and not everything that was supposed to be provided (such as toilet paper) was there. I called Hummingbird Cabins on the Monday to inform them of those issues and they sent someone over immediately to remedy those problems. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed being able to sit on the back deck and marvel at the beautiful views, the peace and quiet and the elks and deer wandering around below the deck. The interior of the house was very clean, if perhaps needing a little bit of an update, but I would definitely choose that cabin again.

Hummingbird Cabins May 31, 2017 at 12:02 am

Dear Isabelle,
Thank you for the review and allow us the opportunity to remedy the issues that you encountered. Our goal is to have every cabin 100% ready before each check in, but we do make mistakes on occasion and appreciate you taking the time to notify us. We hope you can visit again soon.

Our stay at the apline cabin was so amazing and relaxing. It was very spacious view was great. The rooms were beautiful and big. It wasnt far from town. My only thing is the water pressure is really bad

Alexis May 15, 2017 at 1:53 pm

We have stayed in Hummingbird Cabins multiple times and have had amazing experiences every time. Extremely clean too!

Edna May 1, 2017 at 4:41 pm

Hummingbird did a great job in providing my friends and quality vacation rental. We expected something beautiful and we received something incredible. They went beyond meeting our comfort needs, we felt at home. The cabin experience itself was amazing. Thank you Hummingbird Cabins!

Perla Portillo April 25, 2017 at 3:29 am

I got the pleasure to stay in the Sierra Escape cabin. My family and I just loved everything about it. Made us feel right at home. The view was perfect and so was everything else. Everything was provided for us. We just loved it, definitely would go back.!

Scott & Sheryl April 25, 2017 at 2:21 am

My wife and I rented Valley View for two nights. Beautiful place to spend our 18th anniversary. Cabin was spotless and had everything anyone would want or need. Best cabin view we have ever experienced. Hot tub nights under the stars was the icing on the cake. We will certainly be back. Hummingbird made this the smoothest most trouble free rental one could imagine.

Barbara Patterson April 19, 2017 at 2:27 pm

My family stayed at Arts Pine last year. It was a beautiful place and we especially enjoyed the Elk and Deer. Only thing lacking was some air conditioning through out the whole house. It was hot when we were there so the house got pretty warm also. We hope to plan another trip to Ruidoso this year and stay at Arts Pine.

Hummingbird Cabins April 19, 2017 at 4:48 pm

Dear Barbara,
Thank you for taking a moment to tell us about your visit! Cabins without air conditioning can be a bit warm. The owners have added a window unit in the game room along with two other portable air conditioning units to help with this in the future. We hope you can visit again soon.

Juan Reyes April 18, 2017 at 6:11 pm

We had a great weekend, we enjoy the cabin and its commodities, the cabin location was also great, we also enjoy the view, next time this will bue our fisrt option.

javier April 11, 2017 at 2:05 am

We had a very relaxing time at The Hideout. Celebrated our Anniversary and the cabin was just beautiful. Perfect for a couple wanting some privacy.

Taylor Hall September 7, 2017 at 3:18 am

Hi Javier,
My husband and I are thinking about renting this cabin, but we were just concerned because it does say 4 wheel drive is required. Did you all have 4 wheel drive and if not, was it a problem? Thank you for your time!

james hartline April 10, 2017 at 10:33 pm

great stay, great cabin, great everything will be a return customer

Steven Shelton April 10, 2017 at 4:02 pm

Tree House is our twice yearly home away from home since 2011. I cannot explain the charm it has for my wife and I. This year we came with heavy heart with the recent death of my mother and my wife’s diagnosis of colon cancer, but WE WILL BE BACK. Thanks to Hummingbird and the wonderful owners who allow us to use their facility. In a world of inconsistency Hummingbird offers the two of us something that we can depend on and will always look forward to.

Hummingbird Cabins April 19, 2017 at 4:51 pm

Dear Steven,
We are very excited you were able to return again; our condolences on the passing of your mother and hope you wife can beat the cancer. We can’t wait for your next visit. Be sure to use your promo code exclusive to repeat guests for discount.

Anthony and Aida Pena October of 2016 and had a great time.

Where to start LOL!
Me my wife Aida and two other couples came up to Ruidoso for my birthday and we had the pleasure of staying in the Grand Elk. VERY NICE
was clean and very spacious with great views and the decor was nice and like I pictured prior to arriving. Speaking of arriving all persons I had the pleasure of speaking with from Humming bird rentals was a true step up in customer service very helpful polite and patient.the directions I was given to the cabin were very easy to follow. We were very comfortable and had really really good time. I am going to call later today and resurve the Grand Elk for this summer My wife and I would really like to take our kiddos up to Ruidoso and let them enjoy some of what we did.

Jose April 5, 2017 at 3:02 am

Our stay at Texas hold’em was great. Very quiet and private. We got to see deers around several times. Within walking distance of main street. I also had alot of questions prior to my arrival and they were able to answer them and work with my request. I highly recommend them

Aaron Gillespie April 3, 2017 at 8:34 pm

Stayed at Elk Hollow for weekend get-a-way with another couple. Wow is what are reaction was when walked in front door. The cabin was everything we wanted and much more. There was 4 adults in our group and have plenty of space and room. It was clean, warm, cozy, and very home feeling. Saw several mule deer doe and lots of turkey. Huge toms and jakes everywhere. We liked how it was not in center of town but close to where you can go in a get something (starbucks). I highly recommend staying at elk hollow. Perfect for 2 couples and about 2-4 kids.

Cynthia Shetter April 3, 2017 at 6:05 pm

We stayed at Shadow Mountain. It was great. Right on the golf course. We walked into town to shop and have dinner. It was very close to Stone Lake. We caught several fish there. We also to a drive out to Fort Stanton and they had a reenactments going on. We plan on staying there again this year.

Melanie, Jewell, & Ysena April 2, 2017 at 8:51 pm

We stayed in Elks Hollow for a weekend, my daughter and her friend and myself. We all thought it went above our expectations. It was beautiful inside and out. The decor was awesome. We sat on the deck at night and it was so peaceful and quiet. We would recommend this house to anyone. This house and our whole trip met and exceeded our expectations. Loved the property!

Gordon Gray March 29, 2017 at 10:51 pm

Stayed at Sunrise for five days. The cabin was wonderful, tastefully furnished and the deck view sublime.

My other comment and criticism. The pictures of the ground floor / living – kitchen – dining area on the website are extremely misleading.

The “actual” size / space in this area is about a third of what the pictures suggest. I would consider this a gross misrepresentation of reality.

Not a problem for me since I was the only one staying in the unit. For others with a family and several people occupying the unit, it may definitely be an issue.

Don Kitchens March 29, 2017 at 7:00 pm

My wife, four grandchildren and I stayed in the Cedarside Cabin the 10th through 17th of March. The cabin was just as the pictures had depicted. Things were clean but not necessarily spotless. We were pleased with how well the kitchen was stocked with dishes, flatware, utensils and pots and pans. The weather was perfect with warm daytime temperatures that allowed the grand children to enjoy the hot tub.

On the downside we could not use the garden hose to top off the hot tub water level as it seemed the outside faucet was shut off from under the cabin. On the back deck a small metal trash can was full of trash left by the previous renters, we emptied it as so as not to be charged for failure to remove trash. The walk in shower and the tub shower water controls were difficult to use and the showerheads should be cleaned or replaced.

Overall we had a good time with the grandchildren and the cabin met our needs.

jason wilhite March 28, 2017 at 6:41 pm

We stayed at the Tucked Away Cabin. By far one of the best cabins we have stayed at with hummingbird cabins. Very elegant and quit roomy with a beautiful view.

Brandy Rials March 28, 2017 at 4:33 pm

We had the best time at Sierra Vista! It was very clean and so comfortable, plenty of towels and blankets, it was a beautiful house not to mention all the deer we saw, this will definitely be our go to place!

Carmelita Contreras March 23, 2017 at 11:57 am

We had a great time. We stayed in the Texas Holdem cabin and we loved it. It wasn’t far from downtown so we could go shopping and the weather was nice and cool can’t wait til next time.

Katie March 20, 2017 at 6:34 pm

We spent spring break at the Valley View cabin- what a great place! We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, proximity to restaurants and snow fun, the starry nights in the hottub, morning deer visitors, and the comfy cabin. This was a great place to stay!

Chris and Jennifer March 20, 2017 at 6:15 pm

We have stayed at Canyon View several times and have had a great, relaxing experience each visit. If the condition of the cabin, quiet location and comforts of home are representative of other cabins, then any place run by Hummingbird Cabins is recommended. Thank you!

Alan Dry March 20, 2017 at 4:51 pm

My family and I enjoyed the stay. The home was quint, fewer dust bunnies causing allergies would have been better, floors were unswept but other than that, the location was excellent. We usually stay in the cabins closer to town and found these to be more accommodating for our larger family and cant wait to go again.

Ramon & Gloria February 25, 2017 at 4:58 pm

Our stay at Bilberry house was great! The house is very homey and comfortable, it was equipped with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the hot tub and cooking out on the porch. Would love to visit again soon!

Stacey Fehr February 22, 2017 at 5:17 pm

Our stay at the Cowboys & Angels cabin was absolutely perfect! The cabin was clean and very well kept. We had plenty of space and slept soundly and comfortable. We will definitely be using Hummingbird Cabins for future trips to Ruidoso. Thanks!

Stacey Fehr February 22, 2017 at 5:13 pm

We, along with another couple, stayed at the Cowboys & Angels cabin this past weekend. The cabin was very clean and well kept. The size was perfect for two couples and we would have had room for another couple. The hot tub was very nice as well. We will definitely be using Hummingbird Cabins for future stays in Ruidoso.

daniel williams February 22, 2017 at 12:06 am

wi fi not working, toilet paper cheap, not enough trash bags, electrical power issues. otherwise would recommend. hot tub, setting, location perfect

Mark Glasscock February 21, 2017 at 9:30 pm

We stayed at the Hideout Cabin for our anniversary. While we have stayed at several of the other cabins and enjoyed it thoroughly, I would need to say there were several issues with this cabin. I understand about having to limit supplies due to cost but the cabin only had 2- washclothes for the 3 days we stayed at the cabin, plenty of towels but could have have used a few more cleaning supplies.
Also, the wi-fi did not work as advertisied, and the Direct TV did not have any service. We of course did not come to stay in the cabin to watch tv, but we do watch the news of a morning.
The bed was very comfortable and for the most part the cabin was very clean.
I do believe we will probably stay at another Hummingbird Cabin on our next visit.

We love Ruidoso and will be back soon.

Crystal February 21, 2017 at 3:10 am

Our stay at the Logged Inn was good. There was a bit too much of dust and spider webs, but the cabin was spacious. It would be nice if the pool table was leveled out and had the corresponding pool balls.
We loved the stay beyond all the bad side. It was very spacious and had a nice hot tub.

Lori February 14, 2017 at 2:19 am

Ladies weekend in Ruidoso at the Pines B4 Sunrise. The cabin was perfect for us. We had a couple of issues, but the office staff was extremely responsive and the maintanance staff fixed the minor issues quickly, efficiently….plus being very pleasant. Several of the dishes in the cabinets were not clean. Also the kitchen was not super clean, but the stove and oven were spotless. It would have been nice to have more dish cloths and wash cloths. Due to the very limited number, we had to do laundry daily. Plan to come back!

Terry Phillips February 13, 2017 at 4:21 pm

We have stayed a several properties over the years in Ruidoso – this was the first time for us to stay at Hummingbird Cabin property. From the moment we walked in my wife and I were very impressed at how clean the property was – inside and outside. We also enjoyed the comfortable and well maintained furnishing. The beds were comfortable – we felt like we were at our own home but just in a prettier place.

Juan Jara February 7, 2017 at 5:54 pm

We stayed at Lazy Moose Lodge, we already enjoy the Super bowl week end, all the facilities on the cabin works well, the cabin has an excellent location.

Allie January 30, 2017 at 4:50 pm

We stayed in Antler Mountain Chalet and it was a great cabin. Overall our stay was perfect. We had a leak we noticed from one of the showers on the second day that they sent someone over to fix it while we skied and it was never a problem after that. Honestly, great size cabin and very nice stay. BUT.. as we were preparing to leave we failed to notice some of the checkout instructions such as taking out your own trash bags to dumpsters elsewhere and washing and putting up your dishes. So I will GLADLY own up to not noticing the instructions for checkout but what blows my mind is the fact that you even have to do those things when it is a vacation rental. I have vacationed through many different agencies for vacation homes and it has never been required to take out your own trash when you pack up to leave or wash the dishes. Please note that when we left we went out of our way to make sure we left it as nicely as possible and even took all of the trash bags down the stairs for the maid so that they wouldn’t have to make multiple trips up and down the stairs alone. Oh, and don’t let me forget, they charged us $60 for leaving 6 trash bags (we had 6 people staying in the cabin for 4 days) and maybe 5-8 dishes to wash that they considered not “normal” house cleaning. SO, MORAL OF THE STORY, unless you want to be your own maid on vacation, I wouldn’t recommend using Hummingbird. $60 is what I can pay someone to clean my WHOLE house so I don’t think I was being ridiculous at all to think that it was ridiculous to charge us $60 for trash bags and a few dishes. Lets just say that we go to Ruidoso every year around this time and I would have happily stayed with them again but they just lost a customer over $60.

**I do not need a response on this comment/review from the agency, because we clearly will not ever agree on this. But I wanted to leave this review for future renters.

Daisy January 23, 2017 at 7:58 pm

This was our first time renting with hummingbird cabins and is not going to be the last we loved everything the service the cabin the location the property name was buena vista and it honored is name it had a fantastic view and it was very well equipped with all the necessities in the kitchen i will 100% recommend this property we had a blast .. and we are planning to go back !!

Oscar January 12, 2017 at 5:22 am

This is the first time staying at a Hummingbird Cabin rental. We booked and stayed at the Whirlaway Cottage in upper canyon over the Christmas holiday. The cottage is beautiful and fits six people. Unlike other cabins in the nearby area, this is an actual home situated within a private neighborhood. There are two bedrooms (a master and a guest bedroom each with there own bathroom) and a sunroom with a vinyl futon. The cottage is stocked with every appliance needed, an ice maker and a dishwasher. The cabinets have cutlery and utensils as well as spices, etc.. The overall cottage was clean but we found a ton of cobwebs and a ton of dog hair everywhere which was a problem for me because I’m allergic to pet dander. In making reservations, we knew that it was a pet friendly rental but figured it wouldn’t be a problem because my family and I have stayed in hotels that were pet friendly but never had the problem we had. Our comforter was covered in dog hair, the carpet had dog hair, the sun room area had dog hair, and the blankets provided had dog hair. While this was problematic for me, it didn’t dampen the vacation. We wondered about the previous renters and if they had any dogs. The second problem we had was cobwebs. While I understand that it’s a common thing in the woods, we had cobwebs everywhere… even behind the bed where my wife and I slept. We killed a couple of spiders and got rid of some cobwebs with a broom. Another thing we had in our room (the guest room in the back) was a leaky roof (as it rained the day of our arrival). We called the office, they came out and checked it out and realized it needed fixing and for us not to worry. In the end, my family had a great time and then found out where the dog hair may or may not have come from: the housekeeper had a dog with her.

Ryland S January 10, 2017 at 12:33 am

We loved staying at Tucked Away! The location and hot tub were our absolute favorite. We cannot wait to stay there again!!

Jason January 4, 2017 at 12:00 am

Stayed at Knotta Bear Cabin the week after Christmas. The place is nicely upgraded and housed 8 comfortably. TV’s in all rooms! The TV in the living room could have been bigger but that is not a big deal. Great proximity to everything in town and a short drive to the base of the mountain. We had a blast and will definitely book again. Thanks!

Bridge to Paradise is amazing! we love the cabin, it’s very confortable and clean, the sierra view is beautiful, I would definitely recommend Hummingbird cabins.

james December 29, 2016 at 10:41 pm

stayed @ deer crossing 711 nov 14-20 . spent our honeymoon in the peace and quiet of Ruidoso.The cabin was great, Plenty of room,warm fireplace,and the hot tub is right outside on the back deck, perfect for cold nights. The staff @ Hummingbird cabins were very nice ,and wanted to do everything possible to ensure we enjoyed our stay. GOOD TIMES

Tracy and Annette Tandy December 19, 2016 at 7:48 pm

Our stay was wonderful as usual, this is the 3rd time for us to stay in the Hideout cabin. We will be back.

Cindy R November 29, 2016 at 3:36 am

The Hideout cabin was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely book again.

Crystal Chapman November 28, 2016 at 9:01 pm

We stayed at Tucked Away and were so pleased it was back to being rented. My family and I have stayed there multiple times. We love the cabin, hot tub, and quiet atmosphere. Love, love Tucked Away! We would live there if we could!!

steven November 28, 2016 at 6:40 pm

This will have been our 12th or 13th stay at Tree House. It is like our own cabin, we know it so well. Marisol (love that name) takes good care of her guests. Wish the HD on the TV worked (No HD channels were available) but the internet made up the difference using netflix. The view cannot be beat and the Acorn Woodpeckers are great entertainment. Look for us around April 1 of next year.

MJ March 30, 2017 at 10:09 pm

Hi. I noticed it says there is no air conditioning in this rental. Did you find it be very hot in April? Thanks. MJ

MJ November 19, 2016 at 5:34 am

Eagles Perch is where we have stayed a number of times. Love the location. House wasn’t as clean as it has been in the past. Appeared to not have been rented recently. A bit dusty.

Hummingbird Cabins November 22, 2016 at 11:52 pm

Dear MJ,
We are so excited you could visit again and our deepest apologies that the cabin was not 100% as we strive to have all properties in tip top condition at all times. We appreciate you honesty and will work with housekeeping to improve on expectations for the future. We hope you can visit again soon.

we just stayed at the deer crossing cabin, and it was a beautiful place. everyone loved it, it was spacious and clean. the only knock on it I have is the hot tub was tiny. it was really only big enough for 2 people, when the cabin is built for 6

Olga and Company October 15, 2016 at 6:37 am

We stayed at A Great Mountain Pleasure and it was like a huge condo in paradise. Very clean, spacious and updated. Our only complaint is that when we got there, the grill was really dirty. But other than that, we loved the place and had a great time. One more thing, we got a little lost driving to the home, so I called the office local number. The lady who answered the phone was really helpful. She gave us good directions and was really nice. After we got to the home, she called us back to check and see if we had found the place. She was genuinely concerned and courteous. I didn’t get her name, but it was after 4 pm on Sat 10/8/16 the time I talked to her. I really want to thank you for helping us find the place.

Melinda October 14, 2016 at 10:26 pm

My family and I rented the bucks breakaway. It was a very spacious cabin. It fit all 9 of us comfortably. Nicely decorated. I will say it needs a deep cleaning. The kitchen was dirty (cabinets doors) and it was dusty and cobwebs all up the stairwell. I don’t think it had been rented for awhile. There were some dirty dishes put back in the cabinets. But all in all the cabin was fine. The people were very helpful throughout the whole processes of renting it.

Brenda Arciniega October 3, 2016 at 10:21 pm

we stay at Shadow Mountain Pond cabin, it was great!! we love it. this is the 3rd time we choose hummingbird cabins and all of them were very nice. The staff was kind and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Gabe and Araceli September 13, 2016 at 4:47 pm

We stayed at the Charlie Cabin and were very pleased with all the amenities. Excellent views!!! Peaceful, relaxing, calm, quiet….the list just goes on and on about how wonderful we felt up in the cool crisp air with no interruptions,
We liked so much we asked the owners to sell us one of the other units.

Sarah September 5, 2016 at 3:21 pm

We stayed at the Delightful Retreat for four nights and we really had a great time. The house was in a great location and was very well stocked. The only complaint we have is that the living room was upstairs with a pretty steep spiral staircase- which we should have seen from the pictures but we didn’t realize that this was the case. It kind of looks like the two bedrooms might be upstairs in the pictures if you aren’t looking at it right. This house would be a perfectly fine place for adults or families with older children but i would not recommend this house for families with small children. We had to watch our two year old like a hawk when we were in the living room and it wasn’t very relaxing. We spent most of our time in the kitchen area downstairs which led to the deck and had a really good time, just not as comfortable without a couch to sit on. Overall this is a great house to rent but I wouldn’t bring small kids back to it. We will use hummingbird cabins to rent the next time we are in Ruidoso.

James Travis August 22, 2016 at 2:11 pm

First time stay and really enjoyed the facilities. Thanks

Ruth Norman August 17, 2016 at 9:45 pm

We stayed at Bridge to Paradise. Once again the Hummingbird rental was clean and comfortable. The Hummingbird staff was kind and helpful. Those are the two reasons we call on Hummingbird every year.

Howard Wilson August 12, 2016 at 6:26 pm

Stayed in the Hummingbird, the cabin was nice, had every thing we needed. The staff was real friendly and helpful. saw the biggest elk I have ever seen just down the street. We will stay again in the future. Thanks for a great stay

Yvonne Coupland August 5, 2016 at 4:49 am

This is our third rental with Hummingbird Cabins and I must say that Arts Pine View has been the most relaxing and wonderful stay we have experienced. The cabin has spectacular forest views from every section of the cabin, great decks, large jacuzzi, and tons of wild life visit the area right behind the cabin. We saw three large elk, many deer, a family of turkeys (birds), rabbits, beautiful birds to include a woodpecker, and even a stinky little skunk! I would highly recommend renting this place to anyone looking for a large comfortable cabin that is serene, peaceful and so relaxing. Cabin is located in a neighborhood that is near town and good people from the Great Village of Ruidoso are neighbors.

To the owners, Thank You so much for sharing your wonderful home. If you would ever consider selling, I would be the first to bid.

To the management owners and staff of Hummingbird Cabins, Thank You for always providing exceptional customer service and ensuring everything is available and ready for your guests.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hummingbird Cabin Bird’s Eye View! The cabin was spacious and quiet. The view was amazing of the mountain. We look forward to returning again! Highly recommend Hummingbird Cabin for a great get-away!

Randy and Mary Givler July 18, 2016 at 10:21 pm

We stayed at Nells Getaway in Alto from July 15 to July 18, 2016. From the reservation to the stay your company was exceptional. The cabin was more than we ever could have expected. Everything was communicated to us perfectly and when we arrived everything was perfect. We enjoyed our stay and for our next visit to the area we will contact you with hopes of using Nells Getaway or one of your other properties. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and more than we could have imagined.

Whitney July 18, 2016 at 3:34 pm

We just completed our stay at Paridise Found #1. Very cute cabin however not very clean. We had to call to have our bbq pit cleaned so we could cook on it. Back porch was covered in spider webs (asked for this to be cleaned but my husband did it homself) – yea I know spiders are bad in the wooded mountains – but it hadn’t been swept in a good while! Also, microwave was dirty so we just didn’t use it. My other complaint is the TV has like 5 channels. To me that isn’t basic cable. Needs a little updating! Probably will not be renting this particular cabin again!

Connie Cochran July 15, 2016 at 12:11 pm

We stayed in Sunrise from July 8th through the 11th. We had a really good time and it’s a very nice cabin. However it wasn’t as clean as I expected from previous rentals through Hummingbird. There was hair and dust bunnies in floors and bathrooms. The kitchen counters needed cleaning and the top of the dishwasher was very dirty. When we got there we had to remove a broken ceiling fan globe that we were afraid might fall on us if we used the fan. I called the office and they were very helpful about that. The grill was very dirty and we had to clean it to use it. We also knew there was no AC, however one whole side of the cabin had to blinds, curtains, at all. So when we got there it was very hot. We opened windows and got a little air. But since there were no blinds or coverings on 2 sliding glass doors that meant no sleeping in as the sun would wake us at 6 am every morning. I suggest some blinds on those doors and the kitchen window. Would make for a much cooler cabin. Also might think about getting some fresher linens for the beds. A couple looked like they had blood stains and even though they had been washed were a little gross. There were several boards on the decks that were warped and need replacing, could cause falls. All in all we had a good time. The cabin is nice just needs a little work.

Chad & Holly Hicks July 13, 2016 at 12:05 am

We rented the Whiskey Mountain Lodge over 4th of July weekend. The house was perfect for the 10 of us. Plenty of room for all of us to have our space and still be together. The kids had plenty of things to keep them busy and could be downstairs and the adults could be upstairs and have our time also. My ONLY complaint is not knowing where to take the trash.

I am already looking at renting again!!!

Hummingbird Cabins August 11, 2016 at 8:20 pm

Dear Chad and Holly,
We are so happy you had a great visit and would love for you to come again soon. In Alto, trash receptacles are in on location on High Mesa. There is a page in the Guest Information Book with driving directions to the trash for your next visit.

After spending one week at the Wild Horse Lodge, the entire family realized how privileged the week became. The accommodations were perfect for our large family reunion. The home and the surroundings were safe for all of our little ones, never having to worry about cars because of being at the end of the road with a long driveway approach.

The Wild Horse Lodge was convenient to so many sights, from the White Sands Monument only an 1 1/2 hr away to the Ski Apache, only 35 minutes up the mountain. Of course, the most memorable sight remains having deer and elk in our yard. Thank you to the rental staff for the excellent response to any concerns and questions.

Kevin Coffman June 29, 2016 at 10:28 pm

Just completed our stay at Hideout Cabin. The cabin was perfect and the location very peaceful. Exactly what we wanted! The cabin was clean and everything in place. Will definitely stay here again.
Oh, and the folks at the office were very helpful and answered all my questions. Very professional.

Mason Holcomb June 22, 2016 at 10:42 pm

Great weekend stay at the Deer Run cabin. Great views. Great golf in area. Cabin had everything we needed. Easy to book. Great communication from leasing agent about access and regulations. Would definitely recommend.

Barry & Jackie June 1, 2016 at 1:06 am

We had a great stay at Charlie’s cabin it was great. Peaceful with no interruptions and beautiful views all around. This truly is a great location to come and enjoy some well deserved peace and quiet away from city life. Highly recommend. Thank you

JimmyYancey May 26, 2016 at 4:10 pm

We Stayed at the Cabin View Cabin and loved every minute of it. We woke up on our last day and the look on our kids face was not a happy one they did not want to leave. So with one easy phone call we were able to stay an extra day. We were amazed at how clean and decorated this cabin was and all the little extras that came with the Cabin.The veiw was amazing and not to mention relaxing in the Hot tub being able to look out and see the view. There were Deer everywhere Front porch in the morning and out the back in the evening. My Wife is a city girl and when she saw the Elk off the deck she went crazy.. Money cant buy the memories we had staying at this cabin nor would I trade them. we were located right in the middle of the mountains and the town so no one had to drive very far to get what ever activities they wanted to do. Me and my boys loved going to ski Apache and zip lining and my wife and daughter loved the shopping so it really made everybody happy. I just wanted to say thank you to everybody at Hummingbird Cabins for helping us have such great memories Keep up the good work and we will be back.

Wayne Rokyta May 11, 2016 at 7:17 pm

We stayed at Buena Vista in early May, 2016. We arrived early and asked for early admission and the front door was electronically opened for us. We found the accommodations to be as advertised. The lower level tv never worked so we were forced to use the upper level tv. We could have reported the problem but since upstairs worked we did ok. We slept very well and were very comfortable even though no ac. Had there been ac we would not have used it. On 2 evenings we had deer come up to the porch at sunset and enjoyed visiting with them. We found that our car navigation had some difficulty locating the address. I suspect the tall pine trees may have interfered with the incoming signal. We would use Hummingbird again but for variety sake would select a different cabin.

Hummingbird Cabins May 13, 2016 at 5:40 pm

Dear Wayne,
Thank you for your time in reviewing your stay. Unfortunately, Buena Vista does not air conditioning. We have corrected the TV downstairs. We hope you can visit again soon.

Brenda Martin Westbrook April 26, 2016 at 1:43 pm

The cabin Almost Heaven was VERY nice on inside and out. It had everything to accommodate our needs. Even though the cabins are close together, from our cabin, the scenery was beautiful in front and back. Deer were in our yard as well as a few cabins down. WOULD DEFINATELY COME BACK AGAIN. The only thing that could make the stay at the cabin any better would be to fix kitchen sink faucet (will get shower if not careful and leaks a little) and make sure cleaning staff check under beds (empty capri sun pack sticking out along with several books underneath that people might enjoy reading while visiting).

Linda Alley March 30, 2016 at 3:07 pm

We stayed at The Tree House, March 20-25. 2016. It was a very nice cabin with beautiful views. It did not dawn us that both bedrooms are downstairs. The stairs are steep so my recommendation is that if visitors with mobility issues should avoid this cabin. The cabin was not as clean as we expected it to be. The deck had spots that were sticky from someone spilling drinks. They were not cleaned up. The refrigerator was empty, but had not been wiped out. Floors needed to be vacuumed & bathrooms did not appear to be clean. We felt for the cost of the cabin that it should have been spotless. However, working with Hummingbird Cabins was a good experience in securing a cabin & the payment process was excellent.

andy March 30, 2016 at 12:30 am

Stayed at the Buena Vista cabin for Easter weekend. I brought may parents to enjoy Ruidoso. The first time they had been to the casinos there and the first time my dad, almost 80, has been to Ruidoso, even though he has lived in NM all of his life. My mother suggested a stopper for the bath tub as she enjoys a bath rather than a shower. Also, I quickly read the description on line and saw Kcup coffee maker instead of Kcup OR coffee maker. Needless to say I purchased Kcups and it was a regular coffee pot. I assume by the bag of other Kcups left there. that others thought so as well. Coffee isnt cheap especially Kcups ha. We did buy items to grill and found out the grill was unsafe to use. One side lit and the other spewed gas but would not ignite. The cover that covers the burners was broken and laid on top of the burners instead of suspended above it. This is the 3rd cabin I have rented in the past year and I have noticed that most of the times you need to was any dish you want to use. The cups had a smell that makes it impossible to drink out of. The couches were a little worn and the double recliner did not work (or well). There was a trash can in the master bedroom closet with dirty diapers still in it.(still are). I know no place will be perfect but considering the cleaning fee for the cabins and the fear of having extra charges if cabins arent left exactly how a person found them, it can be aggravating when you spend extra money on food ect, that cant be used. BUT,
I would still recommend this cabin and other to friends and family. The cabin was very nice and had a great view. We did have visits from deer and was hoping to see some elk that had left numerous signs that they were around. My daughter wants to go back when there is snow so she can sled down the entrance. I was able to spend four wonderful days with my parents and they, I and my daughter, were very relaxed and felt right at home. Though there are always something that needs improving, I never regret my time at any of the cabins I have stayed at over the last 25 years. Thank you

PS the Captia thing is aggrevating ha ha

belinda March 29, 2016 at 5:09 pm

we stayed at the mockingbird cabins, the place was really clean and cozy.. All the amenities and the easy access to the city were great.
My family really enjoyed the stayed, wish we had stayed longer. Looking forward to our next visit.

Elizabeth Barnhart March 29, 2016 at 4:44 am

My parents, son, and I stayed with Humming Bird March 10-14, 2016. The condo was wonderful. It was exactly as described and accurate to the pictures. I will gladly stay in any of their cabins again. The staff was wonderful and responsive to our needs.

Garcia Family March 28, 2016 at 7:27 pm

We stayed in Mountain Chalet for 3 days and it was amazing! Everything that you can possibly need was there. My kids had a blast. It has all the amenities, views, and luxury you can possibly ask for. Definitely will stay again. Very modern cabin. No problems whatsoever. Loved it!

Drew March 26, 2016 at 4:34 pm

We stayed in the Sierra Vista home over Spring Break. It was beautiful and in a great location. We were disappointed, however, in the response from the management company when we needed their help. We called the first night we got there about the fireplace not working, left a message, and did not hear back from them. Called again, they said that someone would come out the next day, and they didn’t. We might not have stayed in this home if we knew that the fireplace didn’t work. We were there for four nights and it was never resolved.

Jennifer March 23, 2016 at 5:43 pm

The location of the Hummingbird Cabins was great! Close to the ski area and downtown was only a 5 minute drive.

Marni & Danny March 23, 2016 at 2:14 pm

We stayed in Fairway to Heaven and it was wonderful. Great customer service, easy to stay, great location, fabulous home, all the supplies we needed and more. It’s just a shame we only slept in the cabin. We were too busy doing stuff to hang around the house, but we loved it. Beds were super comfy and the place is very clean and nice. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Stephanie & Company March 21, 2016 at 11:47 pm

As soon as we arrived we felt like we were home! We stayed at Cabin on the Mountain and the pictures didn’t do the place justice. It had breath-taking views and a full porch on the front of the house and the back. The living/kitchen area was an open are perfect for conversing with family and friends. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you needed to eat, cook, or drink with. The back porch had a grill which was perfect for our steak night. Also on the back porch was a hot tub which was very big and comfortable and most of all very clean! The spacious master bedroom had a full bathroom attached. In addition there was 2 large bedrooms and a full bathroom. The cabin also had a washer and dryer and a dishwasher making cleaning up very handy. We had deer visit us every morning and they got very close- perfect for photo ops. After leaving, we felt very relaxed and it was hard to say goodbye. The instructions that were emailed prior to your arrival were very easy to follow. The staff gave us a courtesy call prior to our arrival to welcome us and to instruct us to print directions because the upcoming week may be busy and you may not get a signal. Wi-Fi is available in the cabin. I would recommend Hummingbird Cabins to anyone that wants a nice, peaceful, fun getaway.

Hank March 21, 2016 at 4:34 pm

We stayed at the Sierra Escape Cabin and it was nice and clean. Hot Tub worked great and it had a wonderful view. Everything worked in the cabin so no complaints and the location was perfect as El Capitan Mountain was just down the road. If this cabin represents what Hummingbird Cabins have in other locations, I would strongly recommend that you stay in a Hummingbird Cabin.

Nicole Rich March 21, 2016 at 4:12 pm

Our stay at Escondida was wonderful. Beautiful view, open floor plan and big patio made it very welcoming! We loved the hot tub, and the kitchen area that was stocked with everything you need to cook for our big family! Our only 2 complaints: the downstairs (where all the bedrooms and baths are) had a sewage smell. We think the septic tank is full and needs maintenance and we were unable to figure out the cable TV in the master, so no TV for us. We will definitely rent again from Hummingbird cabins, but would go with a different home. 🙂

Justin March 21, 2016 at 4:09 pm

We stayed at the Bear Crossing cabin. It was perfect. Loved the layout of house. It was very accommodating. Home away from home. It was fully stocked from kitchen amenities to bath and body works. We had a hot tub in the front. Beautiful view from porch. The beds and couch to even the carpet was comfortable. We had wifi and cable tv. We wil be back. This home was very clean and you can tell it’s well kept.

Austin March 14, 2016 at 7:13 pm

Stayed at Canyon View Cabin 019. Property looked exactly like it did on the website, was blown away by how nice it was. Only problem that occurred was the sink started leaking. Called the after hours pho number and within 15 minutes of calling a plumber came and fixed the sink. The service was unreal! Would rate 5/5 and would recommend the cabin to anyone skiing in the area.

Jennifer Dunkerson March 14, 2016 at 5:58 pm

During our stay, we stayed at Deer Run and its was PERFECT! Far enough from town that you weren’t on top of other people but close enough that you could easily run to town if you needed anything. The cabin was well taken care of and super clean. Also, the Hummingbird Cabin staff was so easy to talk to and never make you feel as if you’re “bugging them” with questions. Will definitely rent from Hummingbird Cabins on all my future trips

N Sims March 1, 2016 at 12:49 am

Great service and questions were answered immediately. Directions were perfect and very helpful. We stayed in the Virginia Canyon Cabin and it was great except the master bathroom sink didn’t drain. Would recommend and use Hummingbird Cabins again!

jon and kelly February 24, 2016 at 6:02 pm

WOW!! Great service and all questions were promptly answered. Property was just as described.

Betsy February 22, 2016 at 5:57 pm

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Nell’s Getaway!! It is not a first time there and it certainly will not be our last! Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!

Greg S February 21, 2016 at 12:12 am

We had a wonderful stay at the Bilberry House, which was really just perfect for our family of 5, and very close to the road to the ski lodge.
My two girls were ecstatic when they saw the wild horses kicking up the snow across the street, as we pulled out of the driveway our second morning there.

We will be back to stay again.

Sally Arrizola February 18, 2016 at 5:30 am

Our stay at Birdseye View 2, was the absolute best! Thank you for everything. It was all perfect.

Javier Aniles February 9, 2016 at 5:01 pm

I’ve rented with Hummingbird for several years , and always the service has been excellent , however at this time we stayed at Art’s Pine View cabin and I have a few things to complaint about , the was no toilet paper at bathrooms, the main TV had a very bad sound , and the pool table is in a very narrow room which makes to play pool almost impossible . Other than that the cabin is very nice , comfortable , and accessible, the customer service was excellent as usual , so, I’ll keep renting from Hummingbird in the future.

Joe Herring February 9, 2016 at 3:08 am

We stayed at the Cedarside Cabin and loved our stay! Although the cabin is a bit outdated it was very nice. The negative things about it were: the bedroom with the two twins needs a darkening shade as the light comes in very brightly at night which made it hard to sleep. The light switch in the queen bedroom was malfunctioning. The locks in both bathrooms were broken so we had to come up with a system to show others that they were in use…annoying but we made it work. Also the showers are outdated and the floors need an anti-slip mat. The kitchen light bulb blew out so it was dim. Although this cabin allows up to 8 people, there was only seating for 6 at the dining room table. Since there was no wood provided for the fireplace, we had to go buy our own. We have stayed at other Hummingbird Cabins before and there has always been firewood provided. Not a big deal, but it was extra work. Also we had to clean the glass fireplace doors as they were black/extremely dirty and could not see through them (maybe we can get an extra $50 refunded for our supplies and our hard work?!) Running the fireplace with the doors open was not an option because there was no fireplace screen. Ok now, for the good stuff: this cabin has a unique shape to it which we LOVED! The wrap around porch is big and we really enjoyed it. In the backyard there is a beautiful totem pole that is perfect for photos. The hot tub was amazing, although the lights in it were not working. The neighborhood was quiet and serene. We loved that you could park right up to the stairs. The beds were comfortable. Loved that it has a washer & dryer. With some minor repairs, we’d definitely stay here again!

Hummingbird Cabins February 15, 2016 at 8:31 pm

Thank you for your honest assessment and recommendations for maintenance and housekeeping team. We disable lockable entry doors for safety purposes. Last year we had a young child lock themselves into a closet and maintenance had to remove the hinges to free the child. Firewood is not provided at our properties. We hope you can visit again soon.

Thank you for your review. The occupancy level for all our properties are totaled counting adults and children over the age of 3. You are correct that 14 adults may not be as comfortable as this would include two adults on each of the futons in the loft, and two adults on the sofa sleeper in the living room. We look forward to assisting you with future stays.

Luis Loya January 25, 2016 at 11:24 pm

I recently came from Ruidoso and I stay at Altitude Adjustment cabin, everyone love it, and had a great view, was nice experience and I think to come to this cabin. nothing to regret, clean, comfortable, nice weather inside and well equipped.

Enrique Guillomen January 20, 2016 at 3:37 am

I just stayed in The Native View Lodge Cabin, just luv it !!! great place, near the sky apache, and pretty warm. Just please, check out the heating in the ground floor (it was impossible to turn it on), the waste disposal machine (was not working), and I found some used stuff in one of the rooms.

thank you very much for the vacations

Ismael January 18, 2016 at 8:02 pm

Paradice Found #2 Excellent cabin and attentions, they even clear the snow from the entrance at our arrival.
Plenty of space and confty place, great view from the river and mountain.

Anna Cosgrove January 14, 2016 at 9:32 pm

The cabin was aesthetically beautiful but we had to have light coats/sweaters on the whole time. The heater didn’t work for beans and the tech who came was there for a good four hours of our day. The cable only worked in the living room and none of the bedrooms 🙁
Also , I didn’t like the fact that we weren’t allowed to check in til 4 pm and were asked to leave by 10 AM. Think about it -that’s an entire day.
So, other than being chilly, having an unexpected visitor for the day, and being cut short a day, it was ok.

Thelma Escalante January 14, 2016 at 9:32 pm

Our stay at the Owl Be Back cabin was wonderful. It was really spacious and had all we needed to have a great and comfortable time. The DVDs were perfect for nights in which we just stayed in the cabin and relaxed watching a movie.The location was amazing, a really quiet place, and we loved the deer. We had a wonderful time staying at the Hummingbird cabin, excellent place.

Nidia January 14, 2016 at 6:09 pm

My family and I stayed at Bridge to Paradise for the week of New Years Eve. It as roomy as the pictures online showed. It was the perfect size for four couples and my one year old. Great view, open living area and kitchen. It was great to have wifi and cable. There was a problem with one shower and although it wasn’t able to be fixed the office was very nice the times I called and apologetic. I would use Hummingbird Cabins again.

JORGE CABRERA January 12, 2016 at 8:03 pm

Un lugar maravilloso, a la cual arribamos después de una fuerte nevada, antes de realizar el check in, realizaron la limpieza del camino, con lo cual fue accesible el camino con las cadenas de las llantas, el paisaje fue maravilloso; dentro de la cabaña buena calefacción ademas de la chimenea, lo único que podríamos haber pedido, es mayor iluminación en la zona del comedor. A los alrededores, todos los paisajes maravillosos con huellas de la fauna local como venados, ardillas y aparentes huellas de osos, que por la época dudamos que fuera así.
Con gusto regresaríamos a pasar otras vacaciones en familia.

Adrian Carrasco January 12, 2016 at 3:31 am

My group and I stayed at 204 Brentwood for two nights. It was amazing; super clean place, great views and a great patio with a spacious hot tub. The rooms were very spacious and it felt very welcoming in the entire cabin. We will definitely be staying at the Brentwood next winter. 5 stars!

Everything was amazing, we stayed at the Skyline cabin, we were celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary at the moment, the view from the deck was awesome, a very cozy place, we are planning to go back next year, thanks for the quick response when we needed the personnel from Hummingbird Cabins, thanks Barbara for your customer service skills.

Beverly Robinson December 21, 2015 at 7:59 pm

We had a great time and enjoyed the cabin overall. It was clean; the only issue was the bathrooms. The shower in the main bath was very difficult to regulate between hot and cold and difficult to get it to come on through the shower head. If both bathrooms were updated to include new toilets that were not so small and were higher, it would be a perfect place to stay. We still enjoyed it very much

Jeff December 8, 2015 at 11:54 pm

We stayed for 5 nights at Big Sky Lodge.

It was fantastic. The view from the hot tub is amazing. As good as the pictures looked, it looked better in person.

The staff at Hummingbird could not have been better. they were very polite and quick with their responses.

5 stars!!!

Margaret December 3, 2015 at 10:25 pm

Our family had a totally relaxing time at Hummingbird Cabin. Our homebody children all wanted to stay longer. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes and utensils for cooking our meals and the convenient hot tub was a hit.The only downside was the really squeaky bed in the master bedroom. Thank you for a great place to bring our family.

Tatiana December 2, 2015 at 10:33 pm

Our stay at Lone Wolf Cabin over the Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful! The cabin was clean and was stocked with everything that we needed over the 4 days. The cabin’s location was perfect – close to trails, shopping and restaurants but on a quiet street where we saw deer walking by every morning.

Heather December 1, 2015 at 4:46 pm

There were 9 of us staying at Bear Bottoms and we all had so much room. We really enjoyed our stay (especially seeing the deer, turkeys and wild horses out of the kitchen window!) The house was beautiful, clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. The only thing I would change would be the heater – master bedroom and the den seemed to be getting the majority of heat for the house. Will definitely rent from Hummingbird cabins in the future!!

kelly November 23, 2015 at 8:29 pm

We stay at Bear Paradise for Two days to celebrate a birthday! We loved the get away, as we always do when staying at any of Hummingbird Cabin’s. The only suggestion I would give, is to spot check the hot tub more often this one looked like it may need drained. Also we stay a couple of times a year it would be nice to have some sort of membership club/program.

Frank Gonzalez November 13, 2015 at 2:05 am

Enjoyed our stay at Casa Enchantada, home was clean had good view of mountains. Home supplied with all we needed. We enjoyed the extras pool
Table, ping pong table. Jacuzzi and sauna. This is our second rental with
Hummingbird cabins and will be back for future cabin rentals.

Thank you,

Nathan Wilson November 4, 2015 at 7:55 pm

I spent 4 days at the ‘ A Great Mountain Pleasure – 692’ and it was a great place, perfect location away from the busy town with peace and quiet like I had hoped.
The house was clean and better than expected.
Everything was in good condition and as good or better than described.
The office staff that I spoke with on a few occasions were more than helpful and very accommodating.
I will be staying there again next time I visit.

Chris, Jennifer and Jack October 30, 2015 at 4:34 pm

As always, we had an enjoyable stay at Canyon View. I imagine many of the other cabins are as nice, but this is the one we first stumbled upon a few years ago and the one we keep coming back to. Our trips are always relaxing. Thank you!

Maudie Campbell October 30, 2015 at 4:27 pm

Enjoyed our stay. Cabin was furnished with style and comfort. Did not do any cooking but could have with all the utilities and cookware in the kitchen. Really appreciated the Tvs in the bedrooms. Would definitely stay there again.

Mark & Cathy Landis October 29, 2015 at 9:53 pm

Our stay at Nell’s Getaway cabin exceeded our expectations. We have been looking for a nicely appointed, clean cabin so we can plan our escapes from the busy life. We celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary at the cabin and enjoyed the peacefulness of the back porch, local deer that visited us each morning, and how comfortable everything was overall. We will be using this cabin again in the future and have already recommended it to our friends.

Donna Nell November 8, 2015 at 6:09 pm

Thank you for choosing our little house! Congratulations on your anniversary and best wishes for many more. Wish we could have left you a bottle of champagne!!!

steve townsend October 29, 2015 at 8:43 pm

Had a great time with my family at Sunset Cabin. Now we discovered during our stay that there was no WiFi. A Hummingbird crew did come out quickly, but were unable to fix it. They informed us that this was a new rental property and the owners had not converted their old internet service yet. Also, there were no matches in the cabin. Since the cabin has 2 fireplaces, I thought that was unusual. Maybe it was a liability issue. Otherwise had a great time. Lots of deer to look at!

Doug Selsor October 21, 2015 at 4:51 pm

Have always rented from Hummingbird when visiting Ruidoso. Great people with vast listing of rental options. Our October 2015 visit was once again a success all the way around. Give these folks at Hummingbird a first look for your rental needs. They won’t disappoint!

Mario Ruiz October 16, 2015 at 1:08 pm

We stayed at the Bears Den and were very disappointed. Please keep in mind that this has nothing to do with Hummingbird staff. I would say the staff was the best part of our overnight stay. On the other hand, the cabin was has no upgrades (as the description states), it was dirty inside and outside. There was a sock in the living room, dust all over the place and the outside patio had pine needles that have accumulated over several week time frame. We will never stay at this cabin again but would still consider using Hummingbird Cabins.

Feliciano October 16, 2015 at 9:57 am

Cotton Ridge is by far one of the best cabins we have stayed at. It has the perfect blend of luxury, price, cabin feel, far from city noise but relatively easy to access from the road close to it. We recommend it greatly.

Debbie October 15, 2015 at 9:57 pm

Beds were very firm but really we had no issues at all. Home was extremely nice and spacious. We went with a group of family from Texas and they want to rent the same home for the holidays.

Zuella October 14, 2015 at 4:05 pm

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Virginia Canyon cabin. Nice and roomy, beautifully decorated and so nice and quiet. Beds were comfortable and the location was easy to get to and close to everything. Have stayed at Hummingbird cabins before and will definitely stay again. Soon I hope. Thanks.

Dayna October 13, 2015 at 11:58 pm

We stayed at Bear Paradise and Loved it ! We needed the time away and Ruidoso is our favorite place to get away, this is our first time staying with hummingbird cabins , and we will definitely be back for another stay !! Can’t wait for the next trip !! ????

Lindab October 13, 2015 at 10:23 pm

We recently returned for a stay at Nell’s Getaway. We enjoyed this cabin again with a few minor exceptions. We asked for an early arrival time and could not gain access to the property. The request had not been coded into the security system. Our call to Hummingbird Cabins resulted in a quick solution and we were allowed entry. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin on our first visit. However, this time we found dirty dishes that had been put back on shelves, dirty silverware in drawers, refrigerator shelves were dirty as were appliances/coffee maker and dining table had not been wiped down. The rest of the cabin was spotless and comfortable. I’m hoping this was an oversight, as we would love to return to Nell’s Getaway.

Donna Nell October 19, 2015 at 3:37 pm

Thank you for your comments. We too have found laxity in the cleanliness lately and have addressed this with Hummingbird. We have been assured that this will not happen again and will monitor to see that it doesn’t. We hope that you called them right away and took pictures for them to show the housekeeper.

Nena Bell October 13, 2015 at 3:34 pm

We stayed at the Standing Bear cabin. This was the first time we had ever done this. So much nicer and more relaxing than staying in a motel. Saw lots of deer and really enjoyed sitting on the porch. Will definitely come back. Hopefully will be able to bring more family with us. Thanks!

Amy October 5, 2015 at 11:39 am

We stayed in Art’s Pine View recently and had a great time! The house was beautiful and met our needs perfectly! I will definately be booking with Hummingbird Cabins again!

Yohji September 30, 2015 at 8:07 pm

We stayed at cabin on the mountain and truly enjoyed our experience! I will definitely book with Hummingbird cabins again in the future! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Michelle Turnbow October 13, 2015 at 6:17 pm

The place was great , we had a blast!!!! Thanks Zane Michelle and Keri

Larry Brown October 13, 2015 at 8:03 pm

Knotta Bear Cabin was great. Near perfect. One of our favorites of the 6 we have stayed in previously. Hot Tub is too small.

vak October 15, 2015 at 3:47 am

We loved it there. Everything i expected

Michael & Nubia September 29, 2015 at 6:58 pm

I needed a single-floor, wheelchair-friendly house and Casa Encantada seem to fit the bill. This large 4 bedroom house was perfect and would be perfect for any group needing 4 bedrooms. It is secluded with wonderful views of the mountains. We didn’t get to use the sauna or the hot tub, but they were they if we needed them. Love our kids, but can’t wait to go back with just my wife. The house is a bit big for two people obviously, but well worth it. The Hummingbird Cabin staff are excellent also and even found us a babysitter! Its good to know we can always expect good service from this company.

David Reeves September 22, 2015 at 10:51 pm

We were in the Bears Den it was a nice little place but we were disappointed that neither TV worked and both beds were not queen size as advertised. Charles was a good guy to deal with though.

Daphne September 22, 2015 at 2:15 pm

We stayed 2 nights at the Virginia Canyon cabin. The location was perfect, the cabin was very nice and also very clean. Absolutely loved our stay and all 4 of us will be looking into future rentals of this property. Thank you!

Charles & Sandra Stanton September 30, 2015 at 8:06 pm

We stayed in cabin 198 Touch of Santa Fe. We absolutely love it. We got lots of rest and love the deer and hummingbirds. If we ever get back there we plan on staying in the Hummingbird cabins again. So clean and nice!

Charles & Sandra Stanton September 30, 2015 at 8:21 pm

We stayed in cabin Touch of Santa Fe. We absolutely love it. We got lots of rest and love the deer and hummingbirds. If we ever get back there we plan on staying in the Hummingbird cabins again. So clean and nice! Thank you !

Hector Carrillo September 21, 2015 at 10:04 pm

We are frequent fliers with Hummingbird and have stayed at various others. But we always return to Hummingbird for their customer service and excellent properties.

Unfortunately, my guests and I were disappointed this time around. We stayed at Bear Paradise off of Paradise Canyon. Upon arrival we found messy decks, a large quantity of cob webs, and dirt and bugs throughout the beautiful home. There was bugs and food residue in the couch cushions and the outdoor grill has not been maintenanced, making it difficult to get started.

Although small, these things made our stay sub par for the money we pay. Especially in comparison to other Hummingbird properties we have stayed at. We hope these issues are fixed in the future, for we would like to continue to enjoy staying and recommending our friends and family.

Gonzalez September 21, 2015 at 5:19 pm

We stayed at Deer Run and loved this property. It was relaxing and clean, kids really enjoyed the game room although it’s not very big. The drive from the town was only about 10 minutes away so not too bad. I would stay here again!

Walt Lundell September 16, 2015 at 2:30 pm

We stayed at the lone wolf cabin for one week. We had an absolute blast in Ruidoso. Although the cabin was what we expected, it sure could have been cleaned better. In the guest bath, the toilet had not been cleaned in a long time and had dirty ring in bowl even though the sanitary seal was still on it. Also, there were many spider webs on window sills around the cabin. The mattress in the master sinks to the middle because it is old and worn out. Even though the cabin was not that clean, we loved being there. Everything worked and we really enjoyed our week.

Ryan September 16, 2015 at 1:10 am

We stayed at Nell’s hideaway for several nights in September. The cabin was a perfect two bedroom/2 bathroom. It was so easy to find and we could park close to the front door so loading and unloading the vehicle was easy. The kitchen was well stocked with gadgets and appliances so we had no problem cooking. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were nice. I would definitely recommend this cabin to others.

Catalina September 15, 2015 at 7:24 pm

We stayed at serendipity for second time. We loved it! Except for the spiders and the washer machine.
Beautiful house!!

RAUL GALLARDO September 8, 2015 at 4:58 pm


Kathy September 8, 2015 at 3:47 pm

We enjoyed our stay at The Hummingbird cabin over Labor Day weekend. The cabin is in a great location and very clean. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the deck watching the hummingbirds and dear. We would rent from Hummingbird cabins again.

Bob & Chris September 3, 2015 at 2:26 am

We stayed a week in the Canyon View Cabin and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a beautiful view from the deck and lovely rustic decor inside. It was clean and the recliners & beds were very comfortable. The secure wifi and DVR were a huge plus for us. And the location was very convenient to restaurants and golf courses that we were interested in. We’ll be coming back.

Ben September 2, 2015 at 12:36 am

The skyline cabin was amazing,
the deck view was amazing,
we saw a couple spiders,
but they can be anywhere ,
we definitely gonna stay at hummingbird cabins again was very clean, thank you very much

Margie ,Ginger, Mary, Dalys September 1, 2015 at 3:43 pm

We stayed in Almost Heaven cabin, and it was cute and comfortable, and clean enough .It does need some repair . I realize it is old, and a cabin, but I don’t feel it is acceptable when you open a door, and it falls off .We couldn’t open the door to go to the back porch when we first got there, where the hot tub and grill were ( which we didn’t use, but normaly would ) , and when we called , they sent a man out right away, and he fixed it . We appreciated that very much. The other problems we had were on Sunday, so of course no one came. ‘ We love Ruidoso , and the location of the cabin was great , and the cabin would be fine , with some routine maintenance . We had deer come up on our front porch , perfect weather , and the cabin was comfortable enough for four . All in all, a great sister trip week-end ! Thank you .

arynkathryn August 29, 2015 at 7:49 pm

My in laws, husband, and I stayed at Buena Vista Cabin August 14-17th.

We LOVED this place! It was located in a beautiful location, but also very close to town as well! The cabin was nice. Kitchen was clean & linens were very clean. Hot tub was also very clean.

We did however have a couple issues. When originally booking the cabin I had specifically searched for 3 bedrooms with air conditioning. Due to our trip being scheduled in the heat of the summer, the air conditioning was a big deal for us. Buena Vista came up on the list & it seemed just perfect for us!

But on the day of our arrival we entered an extremely hot cabin! I rechecked online with my phone & confirmed that when searching Hummingbird for a 3 bedroom air conditioned cabin, Buena Vista was on the list. We called the office and they informed us that the cabin actually did not have air conditioning. & an hour or so later when rechecking the website, Buena vista was no longer on the air conditioned list. I believe this was just an oversite on the website, but it made for some unpleasant afternoons. We would not have booked this cabin had we known it did not have air conditioning. We made the best of our trip and I immediately opened windows & turned on fans.

I also noticed when opening the windows that most of the window sills had various dead bugs on them. Not the inside of the window that typically gathers dirt and bugs, but the sill where you’re forced to put your hands in spiderwebs while pushing the window up.

Our last issue was a dirty, broken trashcan in the kitchen that had no trashbags and only contained a few dirty paper towels. I thankfully had packed a few trashbags just in case we need them.

I have stayed at hummingbird cabins with my family nearly a dozen times & we typically have had excellently cleaned cabins. So this was a bit of a disappointment.

We loved Buena Vista! & will probably stay there again with hopefully no bugs, a new trashcan, and DEFINITELY in the fall or winter 🙂

James August 26, 2015 at 1:43 am

We stayed at Elk’s Hollow with some friends and we loved it. Everyone enjoyed this cabin and it was located in a very quiet area but we still weren’t far from the shopping in Midtown. We saw many doe and wild turkey and after the morning rain, we saw a lot of snails as well. It was peaceful and relaxing, we will be visibly again soon.

mike August 24, 2015 at 8:03 pm

Stayed at Bears View august 16-19. We were disappointed it was dirty. We wiped up water that spilled on the floor and the cloth came up black. Same when we wiped the kitchen counter. Also the leather couch was covered with white dog hair. (the people who stayed before us had dogs) The guest bathroom had dirt and dust bunnies behind the door. Same in the master bedroom closet. We asked them to come and clean, but I think they wiped the counters is all. The dirt was still on the floors and dog hair on the couch.

Joe and Mary Ann Cunningham August 22, 2015 at 9:59 pm

We stayed at Lazy Moose Lodge the last week of July 2015. The cabin was clean and well equipted. There are beds to sleep eight campers, not counting the couches but only six chairs at the dining table and no stools or other accomodations so we could not all sit together at a meal. The deck was spacious and deer came up every night which was thrilling but little difficult to sit and enjoy when there was not enough chairs on the deck either and the table was only large enough for four, not the eight of us. Of the two beds downstairs, one was a full size and the other was a fouton with only a foam pad and cardboard serving as a mattress. Would like to have known that before we rented the property as it was uncomfortable for the family that needed to bed down there! Probably wont take our group here again.

Jerry Rogers August 21, 2015 at 9:40 pm

We stayed at Wild Horse Lodge and had a great time! Plenty of room for our family (10) and the view was awesome. Plan on being back in Ruidoso again next year! For a large family or couple of families, this is an excellent place to hang out and enjoy. do have the TV and WiFi, but the porch and quiet is hard to beat.

Blessings August 20, 2015 at 3:43 pm

Our stay at Cozy Retreat was fun and relaxing. We all loved the large deck, the awesome view, the stars at night and the hot tub! The home was clean and tidy. Kitchen and living area nice and open. Location was better than we expected. Our only suggestion is WD40 the sqeaky bathroom door :). We are already planning another visit!

mgalindo September 1, 2015 at 10:27 pm

We stayed at Founders Pardise #2 and it was gorgeous. We were a little disappointed in the cleanliness of the cabin. It looked like it had not been dusted for weeks. The carpet had little pebbles or rocks I kept stepping on. The toilet and sink were not clean either, i used lylsol wipes to clean them before we used it. Good thing we only stayed in the cabin to sleep. Hopefully another trip and another cabin will be cleaner in the near future.

Dwayne Luck August 19, 2015 at 2:29 am

We stayed at the Aspen Retreat. It was very clean except for the sleeper sofa. When we folded it out it looked like it had been peed on and the frame was bent which made it hard to pull out. When I called about it the guy who came to the cabin and took pictures said they would send a new cover but they never did. It really needs a new mattress. The other beds are so high my mother had trouble getting into and out of any of them. We had to ask for a grill brush also to clean the grill.

Diane August 18, 2015 at 3:09 pm

My sisters and I recently stayed at the Holly House and loved it! The house and views are beautiful. The neighborhood was quiet and private. Would definitely stay there again but the road to get there is steep!

Geronimo August 16, 2015 at 12:40 am

Stayed at Bear Paradise & couldn’t have asked for more. V nice cabin, great location set back off the road, great wi-fi throughout, place was spotless.. couldn’t have asked for more.
Had one small issue w hot-tub which turned out to be not what I thought it was however Jeff of Hummingbirds insisted on sending out their hot-tub guy. he was a v nice man, also named Jeff, who was there in literally 10 minutes. Hot tub worked great, never an issue in the first place however the fact that they cared & were so on top of it was v impressive. Also I had a question about the rental while there & emailed Hummingbird. A woman named Barbara, responded to my email question within minutes. Her reply was polite & caring. From our experience, Hummingbird has some v nice rentals & runs everything as smooth & efficient as one could expect. I highly recommend. ps: The deposit fee got returned exactly within the time frame as promised.

GABRIEL JIMENEZ August 11, 2015 at 3:52 am

La estancia en la cabaña fue perfecta, las habitaciones fueron lo que esperaba, muy limpias y contamos con todo lo necesario para que fuera un excelente fin de semana, por supuesto que volveremos…
Lo único con no nos gusto fue la hora del check out, es muy temprano y no permite disfrutar una mañana mas del bosque y la cabaña, NOS GUSTARIA QUE PUDIERAN CAMBIAR LA HORA DE SALIDA.

Pat Stephens August 6, 2015 at 1:20 pm

Sierra Vista was ideal during the week our family gathered for a reunion to celebrate our parents’ 70th wedding anniversary! The view of Sierra Blanca is fantastic, the house is easily accessible (just a few stairs), the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, and the hot tub was a favorite on rainy afternoons. Barbara and the staff at Hummingbird were helpful and efficient. Sierra Vista is more of a lovely home than a rustic cabin – We will definitely try to stay here again!

Barb Shearer August 6, 2015 at 2:33 am

We stayed in the Skyline cabin and it was fantastic. The views were absolutely amazing and we really enjoyed the quiet nights on the deck. A little tricky to get to, but once you figure it out, it’s not too bad. The house was clean and very comfortable. We did have to share the kitchen with some ants, but I think they can be easily managed. I will definitely rent through Hummingbird again. What a great experience!

Christine Williamson August 6, 2015 at 2:16 am

Had a great time at lazy moose, wish we could have stayed longer.
Will definitely plan on returning soon.

tsoles August 5, 2015 at 8:19 pm

My family and I stayed at the Peaceful EZ Feeling Cabin in Alto, NM. We enjoyed our time at the cabin which gave us a relaxing and secluded area. Bedrooms were wonderful and the kitchen was a joy to cook in. The open concept of the kitchen/living room allowed our family to be together while we cooked and others watched TV and visited. We cooked out on the grill one night and it was great! The hot tub was relaxing and a joy! Wifi was perfect! Had family taking online college class and doing business work – no problem connecting! Deer were seen every day making it fun for the young ones! Nice relaxing front deck that allowed serenity for the morning and evening times! Thanks for a wonderful vacation and we will be back again!

Glenda Humphry August 2, 2015 at 7:08 pm

Joe and I enjoyed our stay from 7-8-15 t0 7-22-15. Cabin was all it was said to be, we stayed at Nell’s Getaway and it was great. The only thing that was wrong was the electric stove was old and i had to get help to bake in the oven. The cabin needs a new stove. The patio is wonderful, and the cabin was very comfortable, It was fully stocked with pots and pans and all the extras.

Donna Nell August 28, 2015 at 12:31 pm

Thank you for your comments! The electric stove was replaced 4 years ago. I will leave instructions to help in its operation. The oven floor looks bad because someone put foil on it and that left marks. We try to keep everything up to date and hope you will return!

Donna Nell August 30, 2015 at 9:54 pm

Thank you for choosing Nell’s Getaway! The stove is actually only 4 years old. I will post some instructions to help in it use. We try to keep everything updated and in working order, and hope you will choose to return!

Don Rasure July 29, 2015 at 2:24 pm

We enjoyed our stay at Mimi’s House, very clean and functional. Enjoyed everything but leaving.-Thanks

Georgana Kennedy July 29, 2015 at 1:32 pm

Elks Hollow was the cabin we stayed in and it was absolutely gorgeous. The hosts were the nicest people. It was a difficult time for me and my girls but the stay was nice. Thank you to all.

Christina July 28, 2015 at 3:14 pm

We enjoyed our stay at the Tree House and we really enjoyed the cooler summer temps! Even without AC, we were comfortable. The house had everything we needed. I would recommend it.

M Chavez July 27, 2015 at 10:53 pm

Everything was very clean and neat. Great location, nice and quiet. We will go back soon and let friends know. Thank you.

Patricia July 27, 2015 at 10:41 pm

My family of 5 recently stayed at Holly House. Overall, our experience was a pleasant one. The house was thoroughly clean and well stocked with clean towels, linens, and more than enough cooking utensils. Our views were beautiful and we enjoyed the use of the hottub. The bedrooms were all a good size and the 4 king size beds were clean and comfortable. We cooked our meals during most of our week-long stay and were very happy with the well stocked kitchen. Not only would we stay at Holly House again, we would recommend it to others. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Mary July 25, 2015 at 3:06 am

We stayed at the ceder Lodge July 16 thru 19 it reminded me of home and that has been 30 years that I’ve been there but I can still smell the trees and those mountains were magical the only downside was a lot of spider web and the hot tub was dirty and did not have a lock but says e will be charged for cleaning and refilling and we have to clean the grill before we could use it we did everything plus more of the check out list plus took all trash so I don’t understand the cleaning fee if we do all of what the check out list says I do thank humming bird cabins for the beautiful memories and we will be returning very soon

Sherry & Jay July 23, 2015 at 12:49 pm

Ruidoso is our Summer get-a-way from the Texas Heat and we decided to stay at the Canyon View Cabin. What a Treat! Perfect Location overlooking the Canyon and a short driving distance to everything you might want to do or see. It felt like home the minute we stepped through the front door… The Cabin was well appointed and very comfortable. We had a Hot Tub on the deck, Gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, washer & Dryer, Two very comfortable bedrooms and two bathrooms. More than enough room for the two of us but it would accomdate six easily. The owners thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Hummingbird Feeder on the back deck was a perfect touch. Drinking our morning coffee watching the sunrise, the hummingbirds would entertain us with their playful dance as they flitted in and around the feeder. Best Place we’ve stayed in Ruidoso !

YCoupland July 23, 2015 at 3:07 am

During our second rental with Hummingbird Cabins, our family of 10 stayed at Bear Bottoms Cabin. This cabin is absolutely fabulous, we enjoyed our stay tremendously and very comfortably. The cabin itself is beautifully decorated, has comfortable furnishings and is located in a fantastic area in Ruidoso. We saw lots of dear, a fox, a squirrel, a skunk and many crazy little hummingbirds. The Jacuzzi was so relaxing and the views of the stars in the evening were spectacular. Thank You so Much to the Home Owners for sharing their piece of Paradise with us!

On another note, I want to THANK the staff of Hummingbird Cabins for their prompt response to questions we had. Upon arrival on Saturday, we did not read the instructions correctly and we triggered the alarm of the Cabin. The Staff at Hummingbird Cabins responded quickly aSind very politely explained to us what to do to disarm our unit. Great Customer Service!

Will definitely continue coming back to Hummingbird Cabins for future stays.

Yvonne and Brian Coupland

Joe M. July 22, 2015 at 4:28 pm

Recently stayed at Cozy Retreat. Excellent place. Only downer was squeaky door in main bathroom. Nice and quite. Would stay there again for sure. Great view.

Raymond Hamilton July 22, 2015 at 3:08 pm

Seven men stayed at the Big Sky Lodge &Bunkhouse had a great time. Beautiful place with great view plenty of wildlife,will try to stay there next year.

Charlotte Woo0d July 22, 2015 at 2:43 pm

We stayed at Canyon View Cabin from July 12-16, 2015. It was a beautiful place. We felt right at home, had everything we needed plus some. Great hot tub on patio. Weather was great & we even saw deer the morning we were leaving right at the property. Definitely would stay there again. Thanks so much, it was a much needed get away.

Charlotte Woo0d July 22, 2015 at 2:46 pm

W.e were with friends from Lingleville, Texas & we are from Bullard, Texas. We really enjoyed Ruidoso, NM

D & D Fraire July 21, 2015 at 12:55 pm

We stood in the cabin, Cabin on the Mountains, it had great views throughout the entire cabin. Very clean and beautiful. The great bonus was the paved driveway with a carport. This cabin has everything you need. We had deer and wild turkey visit, and one raccoon. We will continue to explore other cabins as we have in the past using Hummingbird Cabins, they never have disappointed us! Thank you to all your wonderful staff.

Peña Family July 21, 2015 at 12:17 am

We stayed at the Deer meadows cabin which was a really beautiful cabin except for the spiders!! We must have killed about 8 spiders in the cabin alone! (Daddy long legs). The dishwasher didn’t clean dishes very well and the gas fireplace was out of commission! Other than that we had a great stay. The furnishings and decor were beautiful! A really nice cabin!! The hot tub was great!

I also want to add that the sheets on the master bed had a large hole in them and we could smell sewer gas in the master shower and on the deck from time to time. i really hate to have so many complaints some of this could have been overlooked if the response from the management at hummingbird cabins had been better. I did end up cleaning the master shower and was able to remove 75%-85% of the mold.

Haggard Family July 16, 2015 at 11:45 pm

We stayed at the Riverside Cabin. This cabin was amazing, we were definitely more than pleased with Hummingbird as well as the riverside cabin. We are already looking at going back!

My husband and I stayed at Elk Hollow and had a wonderful relaxing time. The accommodations were excellent and the neighborhood was very quiet. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and the quaint little area in the yard. Unfortunately we did not see deer or elk but I’m sure they were around somewhere. The first floor was nice and cool from the central air but the second level was not and, even though we did use this level, it should be noted that it’s significantly warmer. They do have ceiling fans but I think it could still be warm. We loved the cabin and will choose to stay there again.
My only complaint is you are charged the same cleaning fee no matter how long you stay. We were there only two nights and were really only there one full day – we paid over $100 for cleaning and processing. Whoever cleaned our cabin afterwards make some easy money!

Elk's Hollow August 27, 2015 at 10:46 pm

We appreciate your comments. It is warmer on the second level, but there is a separate cooling unit for the second level so all our guests will be comfortable during their stay.

SERGIO RIOS July 16, 2015 at 5:04 pm

Beautiful and quiet place perfect for my family, we loved the deer crossing, the distribution of the house is perfect, nice views. Thank you very much !

We recently stayed at Cozy retreat. A beautiful cabin with a beautiful view. However, when I got there I had to do the laundry left in the washer and dryer, put sheets on down stairs bed, make the bed, and the fold out sofa downstairs was broken. Other than the minor flaws it was a pleasant stay.

Jerry July 11, 2015 at 7:04 pm

We recently stayed at High Cotton. It’s a 3 BR 2 Ba home with a nice deck. First of all, the staff and manager at Hummingbird Cabins were very accommodating and helpful with our reservation needs. As for the home we rented, it was clean and spacious. I will have to say that we didn’t get the full use out of our stay there since we spent a lot of time away from the home and in town or on drives around the area. However, it was as advertised and offered us everything we needed in case we had spent more time at the home. I think if we had stayed more than 2 nights, we would have made better use of what the home has to offer. The beds were comfortable according to our other guests as well. We slept upstairs in the bedroom with the small patio. We opened the window and screened door at night to sleep & took advantage of the cool mountain air. The home is easy to get to. It’s about a 5-10 min drive to get to the shops in town. It’s nicely furnished as well.

Overall, I’d give this a 9 out of 10 rating. The only thing I can complain about is the upstairs bathroom shower. It was very difficult to set the water temperature.

Deborah Black July 8, 2015 at 10:08 pm

We had a small family reunion there in Ruidoso on June 26-28. My family stayed at the Aspen Retreat and we found it delightful! All areas were clean, comfortable, and the pantry well stocked for the basic necessities. The living was large enough for us to cook a complete dinner and serve all our family there. We will definitely stay again and again. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Katie July 8, 2015 at 10:03 pm

We stayed at the Riverside Lodge. It was a little musty and closed up when we arrived but that was remedied by opening all of the windows and turning on the fans.
We had 9 adults and 2 babies so there was plenty of room. The kitchen was a bit small, compared to the rest of the house, but usable. We used the Propane grill on the back porch which was VERY dirty so we let it burn off before we used it.
The view of the river was fantastic, beds were very comfortable and it was a very pleasant stay.

Polhemus Family July 8, 2015 at 9:52 pm

We fell in l o be with Wild Horse cabin the minute we drove up the driveway. We planned a family retreat for 12 members of our family, ages ranging from 3 to 60. There were things to entertain EVERYONE!!! Pool table, foosball, darts, basketball, hot tub….we loved it all. The house was very clean and the beds were comfotable. Pots, pans and dishes galore….even a special Green Chili Casserole recipe! We would recommend this cabin to any big family looking for a great place to make lofts of special memories!!

Colby Latham July 1, 2015 at 4:01 pm

Some friends and I stayed at Art’s Pine View. The cabin met every single one of our expectations. The rooms were plenty big with more than enough sleeping space. Enjoyed the pool table as well as the hot tub. Early Monday morning our trip was capped off with a MASSIVE elk coming within 20 yards of the cabin. Definitely looking forward to staying again

Debbie June 28, 2015 at 2:08 pm

My family stayed at the Cedarside Cabin this year and loved it. The cabin had great views with the wrap around deck and lots of room. It was very clean and had supplies for my Uncle to make his famous Sunday morning breakfast. We would stay at Cedarside again.

BJO family June 19, 2015 at 1:56 pm

We stayed at the Whiskey Mountain Lodge. Plenty of room for our family to cook, eat and relax together.
Only real downside is the yard maintenance had not been kept up so the children in the group had to do some bushwacking to have a place to play outside.

Paige Bontrager June 15, 2015 at 8:06 pm

The cabin was beautiful; made us feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the deer and the birds,etc. The price and the customer service were excellent. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you!

Kelly June 9, 2015 at 8:18 pm

My family and I had a wonderful time at Pine Cone Cabin during our stay. Aside from a few things we were willing to over look, the place was amazing. We hope to go back and stay again! This was a great vacation retreat and a home away from home for a few short days!!

Evan Karam June 9, 2015 at 2:43 pm

The dear run is a great cabin. Very cozy and clean. Had a great time. Love the game room with the day care floors, the beer pong table, and the hot tub. That hot tub was hot! This cabin is located in a great location with beautiful scenic views. Loved it!

Melissa June 4, 2015 at 5:00 pm

We stayed at Mimmie’s Haus over Memorial Day weekend. The driveway was a little scary and the accomodations were tight for 6 adults, but manageable. Dishwasher did not work well, even though we used the additive provided. The dishwasher detergent was old and watery. We purchased new, thinking that was the problem, but dishes were left a grimy film on them after washing. We had better results handwashing.
It didn’t prevent us from enjoying our stay. We loved the location; nice and quiet, yet close enough to everything.

Charles at Hummingbird Cabins was helpful and friendly and sent all the information we needed to help make our stay enjoyable.

Laura Sanchez May 26, 2015 at 9:43 pm

We stayed at Cedar Side Cabin this past Memorial Day weekend, the cabin was nice although the pictures look much better than the actual cabin, I felt it was overpriced considering how outdated and small the cabin is.
There is a hefty cleaning fee tacked to our bill along with an extensive checout list that must be followed which surpirsed me because as soon as we walked in all we could focus on were the numerous old spider webs all allong the cealing as well as on the beautiful antler chandelier directly above the dinning room table. The beds have extremely old sheets on them and the pull out bed has blood stained sheets on it. Further more the grill cooking utensils were filthy ( thank goodness I brought my own). Last but not least the garbage disposal malfunctioned and turned on by itself causing much confucion amonst us as we were no where near the kitchen when it happened, it ended up not turning back on after we turned it off. I cant say much about the kitchen ware as I brought all of my own stuff. I have used humming bird cabins in the past, this is the first time I am so displeased with a property.

Eddie & Tina May 21, 2015 at 3:26 pm

We stayed at Eagle’s Perch, it provided the perfect escape; it was clean, simple, and peaceful. Hummingbird Staff is always prompt, friendly, and professional.

cynthia & jaime macias May 18, 2015 at 7:36 pm

We had a wonderful time the cabin was great..we enjoyed our stay very much…the patio was amazing first cabin we have rented with a tv on the patio.
The tubs were amazing…over all it was an awesome place…will return and recomend..

Rachel Goodwin April 27, 2015 at 1:12 pm

My sisters and I stayed here and we had a blast. The treehouse was so accommodating and comfortable. We would recommend this anyone staying in Ruidoso NM. Thanks for all your hospitality.

TexasBetsy April 25, 2015 at 4:24 am

Just wanted to say what a great time my husband and I had staying at “Aspen Retreat”. The home was beautifully decorated, fully stocked, plenty of towels, cooking utensils (although we ate out mostly, at some of our favorite places in town). The home would be perfect for a group of 6, or 8 (if 2 wanted to sleep on the sofa-bed). It was just the two of us so we had plenty of room. We could not figure out how to turn the fireplace on – it did get pretty cold a couple of nights – even snowed in the mountains one night!. There is a hot tub, which we did not use, One night I tried to unlock it, but the location of the combo lock (clear down on the deck floor, and you could not pull it up to the light), and the darkness and my inability to get down on my knees to operate it, made me just give up – getting old I guess, lol.. I’m sure the Hummingbird staff would have been most helpful if we had called them about the fireplace, but we didn’t, and it’s my fault I couldn’t unlock the hot tub. Anyway – there were plenty of deer showing up each and every day – evenings mostly. It was in a location convenient to town, yet a quiet neighborhood. We would highly recommend Aspen Retreat to future visitors. It sure beats staying at a hotel! And the Hummingbird staff is so friendly!

26th Birthday get away April 25, 2015 at 1:48 am

I was celebrating my 26th birthday this year and me and a bunch of friends rented with hummingbird cabins and it was absolutely breathtaking and such a beautiful place! We didn’t want to leave. The view was amazing along with the huge deck. I would recommend this place to anyone! We were so pleased and are looking forward to our next trip! Thank you hummingbird cabins!

Eva April 15, 2015 at 2:00 am

We stayed in the Sierra Vista, and after our long weekend, we did not want to leave the house! The 3 bed/3 bath was perfect for us- each couple had their own bedroom AND bathroom. The view from the top deck was amazing, and the private hot tub on the lower deck was perfect for relaxing. We go to Ruidoso at least once a year, and we will definitely be using Hummingbird Cabins for all future visits!

Debra April 8, 2015 at 3:03 am

25th wedding anniversary with our kids, loved the hot tub, the house was perfect and the views were amazing!!

Alan March 20, 2015 at 6:47 am

Ampliamente recomendable, magnifica cabaña y excelente servicio.

Denise Ramos February 19, 2015 at 11:16 pm

I have never had such an unforgettable weekend as I did staying here. all of my friends had such an amazing time. I didn’t want it to end. we did just about everything we could in those 4 days there. nothing but laughs at that cabin. those are memories I will cherish for the rest of my life. I am amazed at how it turned out. thank you for your cooperation! I will look forward to booking with you guys again soon. -denise ramos

DEBORAH LUEVANO February 18, 2015 at 7:39 pm

Scenic View Cabin stay was very enjoyable, we wanted a cabin w a hot tub but were unable to locate one open, so that made the HUGE bathtub in the master bedroom a nice surprise,only thing is the HOT WATER was scarce ,you had to hurry and shower or it would run out quickly, same for the tub not enough hot water to fill to a decent level . View was beautiful. The cabin itself was very clean, the grill was not however and we did need to clean before we could use it. .I too wonder why trash has to be thrown ,all dishes washed,dirty laundry has to be put in laundry room and still cleaning charge is 90.00. One more thing the directions provided to us were very very outdated, we had to stop and ask , after we had been looking for the cabin for 1 hour, they probably need to be updated, some of the landmarks are not even there anymore. It was our first anniversary , and i am sure will be staying w Humming Bird again.

Allen February 17, 2015 at 7:39 pm

We loved Deer Crossing cabin. It had everything we needed and was really comfortable! Thank you

Amber Owen February 17, 2015 at 7:33 pm

The stay this past weekend was just wonderful! We stayed in Knotta Bear Cabin and the front porch was great to sit and relax and the hot tub was def. a plus! The fence in the back of the house was also very handy (Lily my mini aussie loved it also). Thanks for always having great customer service and thanks for awesome cabins! Until next time!

Tony February 12, 2015 at 5:25 pm

My family and I really enjoyed staying at the Big Sky Lodge & Bunkhouse because it is very spacious, and it has ammenities that make it very fun such as the pool table and game room in the bunk house. While it is very fun and nice I think it needs to be fogged for insects as there were a few spiders that came out of the ceilings at night. Also, you need to read the rental agreement very carfully as it states some rules that are somewhat hard to follow if you plan to enjoy the cabin with 2 or 3 families because moving of furniture is a must in order to accomodate kids etc. We moved one couch, and we were charged a maintenance fee from our deposit. You also need to make sure you throw away the trash bags from your stay in a dumpster located somewhere around the neighborhood (which we didn’t find because we’re not from Ruidoso) but it does state on the rental agreement to call customer service so they can guide you to it. This was another fee removed from my deposit. The rest room doors don’t have locks so its hard to get personal time in there.

Overall all the cabin is certainly very nice, and equiped to hold many friends or family members for a great time.

Rosanna Morales January 26, 2015 at 6:29 am

Hi loved the Nells Getaway Cabin! Overall, I can say that the cabin was pricey but it was worth it. The only downside is that you have to take out the trash, if you don’t they will charge you extra. My question is, so what is the point of charging a cleaning fee if you have to take out the trash ? That is the only thing I can complain about. The cabin was super furnished with everything we needed including the kitchen! It was super clean and comfy! The soap of the bathrooms were from bath and body works (I love that store lol). It shows that the owners taught of every detail. I liked that the cabin had a code to enter and not a key, very up to date on technology and safety. I really enjoyed my stay! I will definitely book hummingbird cabins for next year:)


Frank & Davonna January 22, 2015 at 11:02 pm

We stayed at Knotta Bear during Christmas and had a very enjoyable time. The cabin was really nice. We have 3 small dogs and it was wonderful to have a fenced in area for them. It was out 1st time staying in a rental home and I have to say that is the way to go! Loved the deer that came up every day. Each bedroom had a TV. The only down side was we only had about 6 channels. Lots of towels and well equipped kitchen. We would stay there again.

Juan Esparza January 19, 2015 at 6:49 pm

We stayed at the Timberline Cabin during MLK weekend. Cabin was in a great location, it was very roomy and comfortable for 6 adults and a child. We did have a few complaints though; 1) One of the beds wasn’t made and had the comforter on the floor, sheets thrown in the closet and were missing pillow cases. 2) Grill was extremely dirty to the point where it wouldn’t light because pipes were covered in grease. We had to give it a really good cleaning before we could even use it. 3) There were beer cans and cigarettes buds left on the back deck and the front top deck.
As strict as the check out policies are (requiring us to do about 80% of the clean up and still charging us nearly 100 for “clean up fees”) I was expecting a pretty spotless cabin at check in. We of course cleaned everything up because just our luck would have been blamed for prior renters mess.
Besides the above complaints experience with the staff during the reservation process was great and the cabin was pleasant.

Hummingbird Cabins January 29, 2015 at 5:48 pm

Oh my goodness, we apologize for the home not being 100% ready for your arrival. Please call us right away upon arrival so we can correct any items. We appreciate you giving us your feedback; and we will discuss this immediately with housekeeping.

Elizabeth January 6, 2015 at 4:26 am

We stayed at Antlers of Cedar Creek. The location was very nice unfortunately we believe the cabin is over priced. Was not very clean and bathrooms need improvements. Also noticed mice feces.

Hummingbird Cabins January 29, 2015 at 5:45 pm

Thank you so very much for your honest feedback on Antlers. We will be in contact with the owner to encourage upgrades. Kitchen countertop renovation is scheduled for Summer 2015 along with interior painting this Spring. This property is now under regular pest control schedule as well. We hope you visit again soon and choose Hummingbird Cabins.

Norela Hannagan December 17, 2014 at 10:08 pm

We stayed at your Happy Bear Cabin, and it was wonderful. We loved the location and the view, going for a walk and seeing the wildlife. The deer that came up to the cabin was just awesome, posing for pictures and such. It was close to grocery store, town and the best part it was quiet and peaceful. The rustic bear decor was great, We felt like we stepped into an entirely different world. We wanted to stay and not leave, but we will return and rent preferrably this cabin, but we will take another one.

Kelly December 9, 2014 at 9:25 pm

Bear’s View! We all loved the cabin very much. The hot tub was perfect size one of the largest I’ve ever seen at a cabin before. The view from the upper & lower level porch was amazing! We will be back soon!

Jaime Castillo December 6, 2014 at 5:45 am

We really enjoyed our time at the Birds Eye View, we knew we would be at Ruidoso during a slow time so we wanted a place that would be comfortable to spend a lot of time in and it certainly was. We will definitely be looking at other Humming Bird cabins for future sites. A secure website to handle the reservations would certainly be nice instead of having to call though.

Kathy July 6, 2015 at 4:53 pm

How was the drive up to this cabin?

DonandTina December 2, 2014 at 6:28 am

We stayed at the Happy Days Inn over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We had such a wonderful time! Deer came every day and ate out of our hands right at the front door of the cabin, such an awesome experience! I love the location, close to shopping, yet quiet and peaceful at the same time. We’ll definitely stay here again! Large deck with a picnic table and a lovely view of the mountain. Cabin was clean and amply stocked (although we did purchase toilet paper as we ran out before our stay was up)

There are a few things I’d recommend; there should be firewood supplied for guests (we bought some in town) and for the price of the cleaning fees charged, guests shouldn’t have to strip the beds and put linens into a laundry basket, dishes should be checked to make sure their clean (we washed all of the ones we used prior to using them because there were several that were dirty) and invest into some better cooking utensils as those were outdated (a cheap set from Walmart would work fine and they’d all match!) Otherwise, nice place to stay.

Hummingbird Cabins January 29, 2015 at 5:50 pm

Thank you for your suggestions to improved Happy Days Inn. We do not provide firewood for any of homes. The owner has recently added a new hot tub and we are in the process of updating the cooking utensils.

Kevin & Tanya November 19, 2014 at 8:58 pm

We stayed a week in Paradise Found #1 and were very pleased. The cabin is a small 1Bed 1Bath, but very new and has a nice open layout. The Queen bed was very comfortable. The cabin is far enough off the main road (Sudderth) to be private, but close enough to not be inconvenient. The only thing missing to make it “Glamping” was Wi-Fi.

Elaine Seibold November 8, 2014 at 6:23 pm

We visited Hummingbird Cabin for 3 nights in October. When we booked, I explained that it was an anniversary and we wanted something nice. Cost was really not important (because of the short stay) but the cabin had to be pet friendly. I was told that Hummingbird would fit the bill.

We arrived late in the afternoon and were immediately concerned about the driveway, which was very small and had no kind of “stop” at the end of it to keep a car from accidentally rolling straight down an incline and into the cabin below. We knew immediately that we would not be going out at night and coming home to such a difficult parking area in the dark. This was further complicated by the fact that there were no exterior lights at the front door. We did not feel at all safe and resorted to putting the fireplace poker in the sliding door to deter anyone who might decide to barge in. The entire time we were there workers were cutting trees around us and their presence, along with all the other “crap” at the bottom of the hill added to our insecurity.

After preparing dinner, I was stunned to find there was no dishwasher! On closer review, it was obvious because the utensils and some of the dishes were “gummy” from never having been through a dishwasher. Besides there being no dishwasher, there was no drainer where the dishes could be left to “air dry”. Neither was there a brush to scrub the dishes. Just an old sponge and a dish rag. YUCK!

The master bedroom mattress and springs should have be tossed years ago. Almost anything can be overlooked if you have a comfortable bed. It was very squeaky and lumpy…..which made for some laughs in the middle of the night.

The beautiful website and the talents of the photographer can make anything look good. I was certainly fooled about the quality of the product being offered. Next time I will have a friend check out in person any place we might think about renting.

David October 31, 2014 at 8:24 pm

First we will be back and use Humming Bird for our next rental. But will not stay in the Bilberry Cabin. The cabin really, really needs to be updated. So much space is wasted. A very small television set. A very small sofa/love seat. The beds were singles at best so my wife and I had to sleep in seperate beds. The bathroom was small and cramped and toilet was in the entrance from the door. Kitchen was very large but very outdated. The outside grill was dirty so that we did not even use it.

The septic system was quite appalling.

Loved the view and wildlife. Loved the hot tub and is spite of everthing my wife and I had a great time there. We picked the cabin out by just browsing the internet. Lesson learned, we will call as well next time.

Just some updating and this cabin would be a real treat to stay in.

Hummingbird Cabins January 29, 2015 at 5:57 pm

Thank you for giving us your feedback on Bilberry Cabin. This cabin was built in the early 50’s and has not had very many cosmetic improvements. The home has been kept in a nostalgic state so the owners can return each year to their “family cabin in the mountains they remembered growing up.” We have installed a larger TV in the living room and recently put new mattress in front bedroom. We hope you visit Ruidoso soon, and we will be happy to help you find another great home that will better fit your needs.

Michelle October 30, 2014 at 7:22 pm

The High Cotton #63 cabin was in a good location, a short drive to the main strip in town but far enough out you got the mountain experience. The layout is good, big TV, comfortable recliners, big kitchen, large parking area and nice deck. The kitchen was stocked with paper towels, spices, and dishwashing liquid. There is a fitness trail at the start of the drive up to the cabin which was a relatively easy mile hike. We saw deer and some wild turkey.

If you’re a clean freak, you might want to bring your cleaning supplies. The dishes had to be re-washed before using, the shower liners were coated with soap scum, the shower head was covered in mineral deposits, the shower walls had spots and didn’t look as if they had been cleaned, and there was a hair in the shower. The front porch light didn’t work until we decided to try and change the bulb and then it worked.

My deposit was refunded in a timely manner, which is appreciated. I would stay in a Hummingbird Cabin again but I would bring my own cleaning supplies….

Kim Cooper November 16, 2014 at 6:59 pm

Thank you for staying at High Cotton. Your comments and feedback are important to us and will be addressed. We take cleanliness very seriously. The well water in the Cedar Creek area is extremely hard which leaves mineral deposits on everything (dishes, faucets, shower liners.) You may have noticed the sign on the front of the dishwasher advising the use of Lemi-shine to help reduce the mineral residue, but even with the additive a harmless film may remain. My sincere apologies for the burned out bulb & random hair – those are things we CAN control. We hope you’ll stay with us again.

graniperi October 20, 2014 at 11:14 pm

We have rented a cabin through Hummingbird Cabins twice now and each time we have been very pleased with our cabin. Arts Pine View is my favorite -so far. We hope to return soon.

Sonia Boukaia October 16, 2014 at 9:36 pm

We stayed at the Sans-Souci Care-Free home for 4 days and we had a very relaxing and peaceful time. The view from the deck is just breathtaking and really made leaving this place very hard. We saw deers, wild turkeys and did I mention my kids got to feed a deer? They absolutely loved getting so close!
What a great experience!

The home is very spacious and offers literally everything from a fully stocked kitchen to gas grill as well as a pool table and a Jacuzzi. We enjoyed our stay 100% and will return when friends visit from Germany!

By the way, the people at Hummingbird Cabins provide excellent customer service!
We just booked another stay for thanksgiving, this time in a different Hummingbird cabin and cannot wait to be there!
Thank you!

The Boukaias!

Mark Taylor October 15, 2014 at 3:56 am

Stayed at the Happy Bears Cabin three nights; 8-10 October. Really liked the layout of the two-bedroom cabin with individual full bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. And enjoyed the morning visits by the local deer!

However, we experienced similar issues earlier residents had commented about: dishes/silverware was dirty upon arrival and we had to hand-wash all of it prior to use (probably would have done that anyway!). Plus, three appliances didn’t work properly: microwave broken but replaced the second morning and the coffee pot and electric hot water heater for tea were suffering from mineral build up. Our biggest issue was the front door wouldn’t lock properly – I had to push the electronic throw switch several times while wiggling the door for the bolt to set in place. I mentioned it to the managing company since we knew repairmen for the microwave were coming over. In fact, we even directly told the repairmen when they arrived to do the work as we were leaving for the day. Upon return, the front door was unlocked, but luckily nothing missing.

Would we stay again and recommend it to others? ABSOLUTELY, as long as the dishware cleanliness was resolved for new arrivals, mineral deposited appliances fixed/replace, and front door lock repaired.

The cost was reasonable for the accommodations offered.

Leslie October 6, 2014 at 11:57 pm

I have stayed at various properties thru Hummingbird Cabins and on this occasion we took a girl’s trip and stayed at Nell’s Getaway. This is the most well stocked little cabin I have ever stayed in. Games, kitchen pots, pans, appliances, gadgets, flashlights, all coffee necessities, etc., etc. The cabin is cozy and appropriately decorated with comfortable furniture to accommodate any type of guest. Neighborhood is very quiet. The front porch and back deck are really great and the wildlife are definitely integrated into this particular property which makes it even more enjoyable. It was VERY clean and well maintained- if there were any suggestions to make on this particular property it would be that I sometimes travel with aging parents and handicap accessible toilets (which is essentially a taller/elongated toilet) are a must for them- this would be the ONLY thing to deter me from renting the property in the future if traveling with them. Aside from that- the cabin is PERFECT and I would highly recommend it as it is in my top two favorites….(Cabin on the Mountain ranks at the top)

Donna Nell December 28, 2014 at 11:40 pm

We are so glad you enjoyed our little house. We too would love to have the kind of toilets you suggest, and perhaps we can get that done next year. Thanks for the suggestion!

Bill Burt October 3, 2014 at 3:05 pm

The Virginia Canyon Road cabin was very nice, Large T.V. , Very close
to town. Nicely updated, comfortable bed. large kitchen. The 125.00
cleaning fee was high as we left only the bedding and towels to be

Mika McDaniel October 2, 2014 at 6:33 pm

We recently stayed at the Happy Bears cabin. The neighborhood was not the best but the cabin was awesome! It’s not easy to find a 2 bedroom that also has 2 bathrooms and this cabin was set up perfectly with each bedroom and bath being on opposite sides of the cabin making them very private. The cabin is just a little log cabin but had all the necessary luxuries. We loved it and will return soon.

Karen Aguilar September 30, 2014 at 4:03 pm

Had a really great time!! Loved the cabin so cozy, loved the bathtub. We enjoyed it very much loved how we could see the deer just walkin around. My kids loved it didnt want to come home!!!:) wish we couldve stayed longer. And definitely will be back!!

Karen Aguilar September 29, 2014 at 6:51 pm

Had a really great time i wish we couldve stayed longer!!! Very cute cabin cozy loved the hottub. Definately comin back:)

Bobbi September 9, 2014 at 7:16 pm

Had a wonderful and adventurous stay at Mimmis house in early summer this year. The house, hot tub, and bathrooms were great! Driveway a little steep, just not what we’re used to I guess. Didn’t use the kitchen as we wanted to partake of the local fare. Very memorable and would recommend to anyone.

The Robinson's August 29, 2014 at 7:12 pm

We stayed at Bear Bottoms for three weeks. It is a wonderful home in Alto and our family thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It was a relaxing three weeks that flew by way to fast. We hope to come back and stay there again. Sitting on the back deck and watching the hummingbirds was one of our favorite daily activities. The game room was perfect for our children and their friends.

Albert August 14, 2014 at 3:57 pm

My family and I had a wonderful experience! Beautiful cabin and scenery! I will definitely be taking my family back soon! We are recommending to everyone! Thought it was awesome that the cabin had everything provided! We all loved seeing all the wildlife up close and personal!

Thank you 🙂

We recently stayed at Sunrise. Great cabin for our family. The cabin was very clean with plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 young children. The only issue was the grill was not clean but we worked around it.
Wonderful long weekend. We will be calling to rent again.

Penny wilson August 13, 2014 at 11:56 pm

We stayed at the Knotta Bear Cabin and loved it! The front and back porch was great to sit at every morning and evening and the hot tub was wonderful! We had a deer come up every morning and night, it was awesome! The cabin was extremely clean and comfortable to meet all of our needs. I was utterly impressed and will use Hummingbird Cabins in the near future and will recommend it to everyone I know.

Bruno Bernasconi August 12, 2014 at 12:43 pm

Lovely cabin. Clean!! Well stocked with all needed cookware. Great views. This was our second visit within a month. Love it and will be back again.

Thanks for a great environment and relaxing atmosphere.

Hoover Family August 11, 2014 at 3:49 pm

We had 7 of us at Sans-Souci – ton of room and beautiful home with awesome views and wildlife. We are repeat clients for Hummingbird Cabins and will call you first next time we come to Ruidoso. Had a wonderful time – hated to leave.

Marc & Maggie August 8, 2014 at 1:49 pm

We rented Jack Little Lodge for a wedding weekend. The lodge was perfect with the large room which allowed the little one lots of play space.
Definitely would recommend!

Amy August 7, 2014 at 6:14 pm

We recently stayed at Bear Country cabin and had an awesome time. The cabin was amazingly beautiful, very well kept and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The only problem we had was that the propane was leaking on the grill,but we worked with what we had and had a lot of fun.We will definitely be back!

Bill Smith July 29, 2014 at 6:05 pm

Our group of five educators from Grand Prairie, Texas, just spent a wonderful week staying at Sierra Vista. The accommodations were very nice and spacious and met all of our needs. We enjoyed dining on the deck and enjoying a beautiful mountain view. Every morning and night we had wildlife in our yard consisting of deer, elk and wild turkeys. The appliances were wonderful and we enjoyed using the free Wi-Fi connections. This was our second time to choose a rental with Hummingbird Cabins and it will definitely not be our last.

Jose & Melissa Rodriguez July 29, 2014 at 5:31 pm

Our stay at the Sunrise cabin met all our expectations. This cabin is beautiful, clean, and has great views. The kitchen had all the appliances we needed and the furniture was great. We stayed in this cabin a week and enjoyed everyday we stayed there. I must add that the people at Hummingbird Cabins provide great and friendly customer service and answer any questions or concerns you may have. From our family in Las Cruces we would like to say THANK YOU!!! For sharing your Beautiful Cabin with us.

Hand and Hyatt Family July 29, 2014 at 3:47 pm

We stayed at Jack Little Lodge and it was very nice. Loved the wrap around porch and view of the trees and mountain. We had 11 and there was enough room for all. The grandkids love seeing the deer and they could get up close to them without them running away. Would stay here again.

Langston Family July 29, 2014 at 2:34 pm

We had a nice stay at Bear’s View but unfortunately the weather was unusually HOT that weekend. Our biggest concern was the “air conditioner” which was a swamp-cooler that performed ok but was extremely loud. The bedrooms didn’t cool down until late at night. We also didn’t care for only having 2 loveseats in the living room for seating. More seating would have been nice. The cabin would be great in the winter but the trip up the mountain might be tricky if you don’t have 4-wheel drive. Overall, a nice cabin.

Shelley Hollums July 26, 2014 at 3:10 pm

We stayed at Caleb’s cabin. Absolutely perfect. Perfect location. The deer were awesome to see and feed. The most important message I have here is about our visit to ruidoso. Our first cabin was a nightmare. We had our two young grandchildren with us. We left our cabin at 9 in the morning. Our daughter was staying in a cabin from hummingbird cabins so she hooked us up with them. They were amazing. They rented us Caleb’s cabin and allowed us to check in at ten instead of the usual 3 o’clock check in. Hummingbird cabins we will always call you. Thank you so much

Donna July 25, 2014 at 8:33 pm

We stayed at the Happy Bear Cabin and really enjoyed it. It was the perfect size for 3 or 4 people. We enjoyed seeing wildlife around this cabin and enjoyed coffee on the deck each morning. My only suggestion is that it needed to be more clean. When you walked in there was a stale odor. Tried to make coffee the first morning and cups and other dishes were dirty. I think when people walk into a cabin it should smell fresh and clean. All in all we enjoyed out stay.

The Stevens July 24, 2014 at 6:01 pm

We stayed at Bear Bottoms. This house is spectacular!! We all walked in and decided we will not ever leave, with the view and amenities…ha!! Who wants to go out to eat with the view from the porch. Saw lots of deer and two fawns by the house daily. Played lots of pool and foosball. It was an honor to be there and thank you for sharing.

Gary and Cathy July 21, 2014 at 7:15 pm

We stayed at Paridise Found #1 and we love it. Very new, and finished very well. Perfect size for Two people. Even though the traffic is heavy on the road in front of the cabin, the back deck right on the creek (where we spent all of our time ), was very nice . We would stay there once a month if it had Wi-Fi. The people at Hummingbird Cabins were very pleasant and accommodating.

Sharon McKay July 19, 2014 at 4:51 pm

Our group of nine stayed at the Next to Heaven property. The views from the living area and the deck were beautiful. We had three boys who stayed in the room under the main living area, which was great for them. The location of the home was convenient to town and the Flying J.

I would like to offer a recommendation that the home be better cleaned. The kitchen floor was sticky when we arrived and the bathroom tub is so stained and dirty looking, no one wanted to bath or shower in the tub. Also, for a group of nine, more trash bags and toilet paper is needed so renters do not have to run to the store.

Judy Abbott July 18, 2014 at 10:14 pm

We stayed at the Lazy Moose Lodge in Ruidoso and It would be a lovely place for a young family to stay. Unfortunately, we were 3 old couples, trying to navigate very steep stairs and one of our group fell head-first down the flight of stairs and spent the week in the hospital, awaiting surgery on his brain (luckily that never took place!). The dog pen is simply a fenced in mud puddle that you have to walk the dogs out to, so I’d discount that if I were planning on staying. One of the bedrooms is downstairs (bunk-type beds) while all of the rest is up. Nice view.

Amber Owen July 10, 2014 at 3:34 pm

We enjoyed staying at A Cool Place! Plenty of room and enjoyed seeing all of the wildlife! Thanks for the great stay!

Tamara Todd July 10, 2014 at 2:47 pm

We stayed at the Virginia Cabin. It was great except the beds were hard and we needed air-conditioning in the afternoons. The cabin had everything we needed. We were satisfied but very unhappy with the fact that the key code that was sent to me did not work and after 9.5 hours of travel. We ended up on the front porch in 90 degree heat with my 83 year old mother for almost 2 hours. It took 4 phone calls. It would be nice if the office personnel had called and made sure we had got in as a follow up instead of us having to go through the answering service 4 times.

Tarah July 2, 2014 at 11:17 pm

We had a nice stay at Lone Wolf cabin. Great views, nice open kitchen, and a large deck/patio area. We loved early morning coffee on the porch. The kids loved watching the deer come right up to us.
This cabin does have a steep driveway (mostly at transition from road) so the warning of needing 4WD in winter may be needed all year. Although we did have a truck, it was still difficult to get out.
The staff was friendly and very helpful after we checked out and realized we left our keys in the cabin (once we were already home). They mailed them back and we received them 2 days later.
We will contact Hummingbird Cabins when we return to Ruidoso! It was a nice break from the city!

Brian and Yvonne July 1, 2014 at 1:27 am

Our Family stayed at the Sans-Souci Care-Free home for 5 days and it was the most restful and peaceful stay. We enjoyed spectacular views from every area inside and outside the home. We enjoyed watching deer, turkeys, hummingbirds and little squirrels every day we were there from the numerous windows, inside the home, and from the back deck.

This home offers three bedrooms and a loft area, which accommodated 10 people very comfortably. The Jacuzzi and pool table is another great asset this property offers.

In addition to our great stay and satisfaction with the home, I must add that the people at Hummingbird Cabins provide excellent customer service. They are available 7 days a week and are only a telephone call away from addressing any concerns. I have used numerous other property management rentals in Ruidoso in the past, and must say that Hummingbirds Cabins has given us the best experience.

Thank You.

We will definitely be calling Hummingbird Cabins again.

Larry Brown June 30, 2014 at 2:10 pm

We loved our stay at Cedarside Cabin the weekend of June 27 – 30. Only suggestion we have is to update the mattresses. One was extremely soft the other hard as a rock. Love you guys and we will be back. By the way thus was our 4th time to stay at a Hummingbird Cabin.

The Britain's June 26, 2014 at 1:43 am

We enjoyed our stay at the Virginia Canyon Cabin so very much! The updated look and feel was so nice and cozy! We appreciate so much your customer service and willingness to accommodate our little furry family members as well. Such a great experience and we will definitely book again in the future!

Connie Cochran June 23, 2014 at 3:50 pm

We stayed at Bear’s View June 14th, 2014 through June 17th. We enjoyed our stay a lot. The cabin was very nice. Our only concerns were that the grill was so dirty that we almost had a grease fire in it the first night. After we let it burn off, it was fine. But apparently the cleaning staff doesn’t check the grill. The cabin was a little too dusty for my taste, I think a more thorough cleaning would be appreciated. And there were not enough washcloths out without us doing laundry. Which brings me to the washing machine. Its a very nice machine, But it was totally moldy inside, so we didn’t use it. I have a front load machine and I have to leave mine open so as to avoid this problem. Maybe guests should be made aware of this so they will leave it open to dry. I hope this doesn’t sound like I’m complaining too much. But I assume the owners of this cabin are paying for cleaning so I think it should be done properly. Other than the cleaning and linen issues, we loved the cabin and hope to stay again sometime.

Aden Acrey June 23, 2014 at 2:22 pm

We stayed at Canyon View. It was very clean and had everything you would need for your stay. We will stay there again.

Robert Jones June 18, 2014 at 4:45 pm

We stayed at the Antlers. Our first impression was that the place had not been cleaned well. The floors were filthy like nobody had vacuumed in a really long time, especially the upstairs. the toilet upstairs had the sanitized for you paper on it but the toilet was gross with stuff floating in it. the downstairs bath smelled and all the walls were cracking everywhere. I was also disturbed buy the fact there were no smoke detectors in the house. the view was nice but I wish we had picked a different cabin because this was not worth the money or the clean up fee we have to pay to pick up after ourselves,

Gilbrert & Kim June 18, 2014 at 2:32 pm

We were so pleasantly surprised with The Tree House – it was beautiful! Pictures didn’t do it justice, the views were so pretty, the cabin very cozy, the beds are so comfortable, somewhat secluded, deer were in abundance, open the front and back doors and the breeze was to die for. Stairs a little difficult to navigate for my husbands elderly parents who decided to stay with us last minute but otherwise everything was perfect!

Patty June 16, 2014 at 6:58 pm

We had a great time, plenty of room and a great view. If I had to complaint it would be that the beds were very hard. My Aunt said the bed made her bones hurt and didn’t stay the whole time becuase of this and of course air conditioning in the afternoon would have been great. We really enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and all of the space…

Linda Silva June 14, 2014 at 2:03 pm

Our family stayed in the Canyon View Cabin, and we loved it! We will be coming back next year!

Joan June 13, 2014 at 9:08 pm

Beautifully-updated Virginia Canyon Cabin was perfect for our multi-generational family and dog. We loved the bathrooms and kitchen. The only thing missing is air-conditioning during the hottest hours. Thank you!!

Clark & Melissa May 28, 2014 at 7:18 pm

Stayed at Sunrise last week-end, Great place and will be back. As a added bonus we had a momma bear & 3 cubs to watch below the deck all 3 mornings we were there. Don’t know how you did that, but thanks.

Boese-Torres Family May 27, 2014 at 4:17 pm

We stayed at Serendipity. Everything was clean and in good repair. We had little trouble finding the light switches for the outside lights that turned into a fun scavenger hunt for my dad. The cabin is well described in the website and there are enough pictures. The master bedroom (king bed) is in the main floor and the other three bedrooms are downstairs, king bed in two bedrooms and two full beds in the third. The three bedrooms downstairs share two half bathrooms and a single shower, kind of jack and jill style but with a lot more doors, it takes a little time to get used to but works well. The living room and dining room in the main floor are big, open, and comfortable for the whole family, but there is a smaller living area downstairs as well. Every room has a fan and access to the outside.
We spotted a few deer and walked around the golf course enjoying the views and wonderful weather. The cabin invites you to relax and is absolutely perfect for big families. We wouldn’t doubt to stay there again should we decide to visit Ruidoso.
The only recommendation we would give future guests is to identify grocery and convenience stores before hand and get supplies before dark. Almost all restaurants are closed after dark and we did not find many grocery stores. Lawrence was the closest one we found. Walmart has a better variety and much lower prices but it is also farther from the cabin. The kitchen at Serendipity was so comfortable and well equipped we cooked almost every meal and were happy to do so.
Also, it was a pleasure to work with the management office. We didn’t call often, but for the voice at the other end was always friendly and welcoming for the few calls we made.

Don&Anita May 19, 2014 at 4:50 pm

We stayed at the Scenic View, all of the basic necessities and a wonderful view of Ruidoso.

E Johnson May 8, 2014 at 11:43 pm

We recently stayed at Antlers at Cedar Creek. The location was great. We enjoyed almost everything about our stay. We had plenty of room. However, we had to change the sheets on one of the beds, it was filthy. It looked like it had mud (I hope it was mud) and dead leaves in between the sheet. We chose this particular property for the pool table and the hot tub. The hot tub was great. The pool table would have been a lot of fun except the 8 ball was broken. When we tried to go out on the deck, the curtain rod fell off of the broken bracket. Pretty disappointing. All in all we had a great weekend. If we do decide to use Hummingbird again we will definitely request a different property.

Martinez Family April 29, 2014 at 3:13 pm

We stayed at Enchanted Moose this past weekend and our stay was great..the cabin was very spacious and clean for the most part except for some spider webs here and there. And the office staff that I dealt with were so nice and helpful. The only complaint would be that there should be more than 2 trash can liners for the kitchen trash can but no big deal just made a trip to walmart:) other than that our stay was great..great view and lots of deer the first night! Definately will be using hummingbird cabins for future stays in Ruidoso. 🙂

ART April 25, 2014 at 9:02 pm

Our stay at Art’s Pine cabin was wonderful. The accomodations were nice and plenty of room for our family. The wildlife (deer) visted us each morning. The only recommendation I can suggest is that the outdoor grill heating elements should be cleaned to avoid a potential grease fire. I would stay here again.

Arturo Pena April 25, 2014 at 7:15 pm

We had a great time last weekend at the Buena Visat cabin. This place has a perfect view and the cabin is one of the best I ever stay in, and I’m a frequent Ruidoso visitor.
I definitely recommend this cabin

mandy April 25, 2014 at 6:50 pm

Love going to ruidoso for Easter weeken and humming bird ccabins make my family’s stay even better. I would recommend them to everyone…..

Juan and Lucia Avila April 14, 2014 at 7:06 pm

My wife and I spent the weekend of 4/11/2014 at Paradise 1 and we were very happy with the cabin. It was very clean and well stocked. The creek that runs behind the cabin is one of the reasons that we like the cabin. Grilling in the patio and listing to the water cascading on the rocks makes it very relaxing.

Amy April 2, 2014 at 12:52 am

We stayed at Valley View last weekend and it was fantastic. The cabin was perfect. It had everything we needed and a lot of things I did not expect, like the book and movie selection. Lots of cozy throws/blankets. Really demonstrated to my family why I prefer renting properties like this instead of hotel rooms. View was great, everyone was so excited by all the local wildlife. Weekend was just way too short. Thank you for such perfect accommodations.

Juan Mimbela March 26, 2014 at 3:02 am

We had a blast. Enjoyed every aspect of the cabin. Liked the fact that it was clean and cozy. Will definitely stay ther again.

Cody MIller March 24, 2014 at 2:19 pm

We had a wonderful time this past weekend. The Tree Tops At Alto Alps was a beautiful cabin, clean and cozy. Plenty of room and amazing views! Wildlife all around, made it feel like you were all alone out in the woods!
We will be back soon,
Thank you

Melissa March 22, 2014 at 5:08 am

We stayed at Painter’s Mountain Chalet the week of Spring Break 2014. The house floorplan was perfect for our party. We had ample sleeping arrangements and the view was beautiful. The location was central to all attractions. We really liked the large lot size, as most area homes have no privacy and are on top of the neighbors. Note: This home is not handicapped accessible. It worked well for the three young families with us; however, do not reserve this location is you have any elderly guests.

During our stay we used the hot tub a good bit, and it malfunctioned with each initial use. Hummingbird Cabins resolved our issue promptly and was extremely professional and courteous. The downstairs bathroom door would not lock. We made one phone call and they repaired it immediately. No questions asked.

We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our week in the house. Unfortunately it did not end there.

Upon our return home, nearly all of our houseguests have had a strange illness, diagnosed by the doctor as an bacterial infection from sitting in a dirty hot tub. We missed the explicit instructions in the manual to request an extra cleaning during the week if needed. (We noticed while reading check out instructions.) We should have opted for this service, and perhaps we would all be in the clear.

The management company gets an A+, and the location is a solid B. We would stay here again, but we would absolutely exercise the extra hot tub cleaning option. 🙂

Lance Mingle March 18, 2014 at 6:36 pm

We stayed in Peaceful Easy Feeling for 5 nights over spring break. The house was wonderful. The view of the mountain was amazing from our living room. The hot tub was excellent and the weather was great. We enjoyed our stay and have finally found the house we would, without a doubt, return too. The new driveway makes the house easier to get in and out of. The gas fireplace was warm on the cold morning and the house fit the 2 family’s that stayed their perfectly. The location is just far enough away to make it feel like a cabin, but close enough to everything we needed in town. Overall rating 10.. We do not need to look elsewhere!

Sandy Tovar March 17, 2014 at 10:59 pm

Our stay at High Cotton Cabin met every one of our expectations. Our experience was incredibly pleasant from the time of making the reservation. The staff was more than welcoming and we’re always one call away. From our family in Texas…THANK YOU KINDLY!!!

Marisol March 17, 2014 at 5:14 pm

We stayed at the Aspen Retreat. The house was very nice and clean overall. We had issues with wifi and ceiling fan not working but they came and got those resolved immediately. I suggested they have the cleaning lady dust as it was quite dusty in the tv cabinets, curtains covering doors and cob webs on fans. We also suggested they clean the dining room light as it was filled with moths. Overall very nice on the inside and accommodated us well. We will definitely use hummingbird cabins for our next stay.

Deborah Cathey March 17, 2014 at 3:09 pm

We enjoyed our stay at Cedar Lodge – setting was beautiful, rooms were clean, hot tub was great. The oven did not work that well and there was a smell at the kitchen sink which we think was related to a leak – we left a note for each. Bottom line, I would return to the same cabin, it was great for our family of 9.

Joel McKnight March 14, 2014 at 3:15 am

This was not our first time to stay with Humminbird Cabins (Hummingbird Cabin and Cabin on the Mountain were GREAT) but our first at Kidd Kottage. Kidd Kottage is older but that is not a problem. The space was great for 4ppl, and the location is super.

It was dusty and dead gnats on flat surfaces had to be addressed before we could fix supper. entertainment/tv/dvd is in drastic need of modernization. Bath linens are very old and need replacing. Bring your own cookware.

We will defintely stay at H Cabins agian, bt may not at Kidd Kottage.

srusso February 24, 2014 at 6:13 pm

Our stay at the Bear’s View Cabin was wonderful. This cabin was beatiful, clean, and great location. The kitchen had new appliances and the furniture was great as well. We enjoyed the hot tub and the deck was a great place for some nice photos. Will stay there again in the future!

Erica Vazquez February 24, 2014 at 5:55 pm

We stayed at the Tucked Away and was amazing. It was very clean, good conditions and very comfortable. The hot tub was big and clean. We are looking forward to come back soon!!!

Juan Pablo Pimentel February 24, 2014 at 4:52 pm

We stayed at the Wild Horse Lodge, it was everything we expected, very clean, and overall very well maintenance, only a few minor details but overall we had a great experience.

Adam Raider February 11, 2014 at 3:29 pm

My wife and I stayed at “birds eye view” and it was totally mind blowing! Only suggestion we had was to update the online pics being the entire cabin was re finished. The service and cabin was second to none! Thank you hummingbird cabins for the most amazing stay.

Jayne February 11, 2014 at 12:21 am

Great stay at the Bilberry this weekend! Perfect location, secluded but still close enough to everything. Supplied with all of the essentials, at an affordable rate. We’ll be back, thanks!

dan t February 10, 2014 at 5:46 pm

Tree house cabin; THE GOOD: nice floor plan, great view, had all necessary conveniences. quiet area. convenient.
THE BAD: not very thorough housekeeping (dust, dead flies in feb, nothing cleaned under furniture). beds were horrible (the queen isn’t sleepable and the king is not far off from that). sofas are outdated and not comfortable for relaxing. signs of previous pets. broken blinds and place needs to be repainted (scuff marks all over the walls). toilets stained, sinks chipped. good $100 per nite cabin. BAD $200 per nite cabin.

Lindsey, Cap, Joshua, Katlyn, Kelley and Zac February 10, 2014 at 3:55 pm

Our stay was great! Hot tub was wonderful, great views, plenty of room for a group and the cabin was very clean when we arrived. The only complaint was the bed in the master bedroom has really scratchy sheets and the bed was really hard. But all in all, this was a great mini-vacation.

Sandy & Friends February 3, 2014 at 9:19 pm

Our stay at Bear Bottoms was absolutely amazing!!! It was the perfect getaway for the girls and I and we had absolutely NO complaints! We are so excited to be able to come back next year! (This time with four wheel drive :)) haha Anyway, I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!!!

Jose Gutierrez February 3, 2014 at 6:58 pm

Our stay at the bear country cabin was excelent!! we had an amazing time we are looking forward to come back soon! we love it! thank you so much for your help!

Ashley D February 3, 2014 at 6:04 pm

We truly enjoyed our stay at elks hollow! It was out away from people with lots of wildlife and a gorgeous view when it started snowing! The microwave didn’t work , however we informed a representative of hummingbird cabins and the promptly apologized and promised to fix the issue for the next visitors.

Michelle & Eddie January 21, 2014 at 4:16 pm

We stayed in the country bear cabin and it was an amazing getaway from
El Paso! We will definitely be back again to stay!!! I have rented properties from your company before and they are all fantastic! This property allows for many guests and will allow many to travel and enjoy the space! This cabin is close to Main Street as well! FANTASTIC CABIN!!!!!!

Steven Mize January 20, 2014 at 10:53 pm

We will be back next year for sure. Peaceful, clean, and all we could ask for. Best vacation stay we have had in years.

Mike Woolley January 18, 2014 at 7:56 pm

A wonderful stay at Lakeshore Lodge. Had trouble with the hot tub on the second day, but did not affect our stay during Christmas. Our hat is off to the folks at Hummingbird Cabins. We will definitely be back.

Mark Singer January 16, 2014 at 9:09 pm

This was our first stay in Hummingbird Cabins, and our first get together with our boys in a long time. I certainly recommend them. The house had plenty of room, and really GREAT Scenery up in the mountains. When we need to get away again, I will call Hummingbird.

Ashley January 15, 2014 at 1:43 am

Our stay at almost heaven was just that, almost heaven! It was a wonderful little cabin, perfect location, wildlife outside, nice area for early morning walks, and we found some wonderful board games under the TV! The staff at humming bird cabins have always been very nice and helpful, and we look forward to our stay in a couple of weeks at a new cabin!

Virdie D. and Family January 14, 2014 at 6:06 pm

We had a wonderful stay at Art’s Pine View. Very clean, lot’s of room. The only problem we had was the clothes dryer did not dry. It is a beautiful cabin with a wonderful deck and carport. Would love to stay there again. If you have a large group this is a great place for you! Everything you need is there.

Eddiel Gabaldon January 14, 2014 at 4:45 pm

We LOVED our stay at Art’s Pine View!! Great Cabin, very modern but yet the cabin feel like stay… We recomend this cabin 100% for the Holiday, lots of wildlife all around

kaitlin chilcutt January 14, 2014 at 3:15 pm

We loved our first time stay in the humming bird cabin we stayed in the scenic view cabin their was plenty of room for the whole family it was nice to go to the back porch and sit down and look at the view of the mountains when the sun hit them they were very beautiful but our stay was perfect and this summer we are thinking about coming back we just loved it that much

sylvia garza January 14, 2014 at 8:13 am

Stayed at the enchanted moose the frig was dirty had hair and old food stains the trashed can had bad smell. Took off top it was very nasty there was not enough detergent. And lots of spiders in the house.But the staff is very nice contacted them to let them know about the situation and they did apologize . I did clean the frig and trash can killed the bugs in the house.you have to climb lots of stairs before u get to the entrance door .but other than all of that its really nice Thank u

Rebecca Fernandez January 14, 2014 at 2:02 am

Our family has stayed at the Cedar Lodge 4 times. We love it. The employees are very courteous and helpful. Going there has become like a family reunion favorite. Our kids love seeing the deer and getting into the Jacuzzi. We will keep coming back. Fernandez family from El Paso, TX.

K Johnson January 13, 2014 at 11:12 pm

This is our second time to stay at Bear’s View Cabin. We stayed there over ten years ago with my brother and his family, along with our 3 kids. It was wonderful then, and even better this time. We didn’t realize it was the same place, but when we pulled up, I realized it was the SAME PLACE! And when we walked in, we realized how superb the place was. The view is spectacular; the rooms are well appointed, and the kitchen has all the utensils you’ll need to cook. The upper back deck has a magnificent view of Sierra Blanca, and extra treat was the new spa. Even in the chilly temps, my husband and I, sans kids this time around!, went to the hot tub every night and listened to the quiet of the beautiful area! It was a great place, and we’ve stayed in many vacation rentals all across America. The only caveat is the location, on a side of a mountain. if you have a regular car, it might be difficult in icy conditions. We had a front wheel drive Honda CRV, and it was easy. Even in bad weather, you can find a side street to take you up at a more gradual elevation grade and eliminate the steep road that leads you straight up to the cabin. Bea’s view is a real special place. x2!!

Charles Bishop January 13, 2014 at 10:31 pm

This is our second reply….well be back!, best investment you can make to go with the cabin, several hundred lbs of corn…birds and deer every day…db

DLUCHETTI January 13, 2014 at 9:37 pm

We stayed for July 4th weekend at the Bird’s Eye View cabin, this was the first time staying in this particular cabin and loved it. All the cabins we have rented from Hummingbird have always been such a wonderful experience. We had a great time in the hot tub and just sitting on the deck. Loved the rainy evenings as it brought some nice cool air for us. Even fed a deer by hand! Customer service is always so nice and helpful!We will definately be back!

Marie January 13, 2014 at 5:40 pm

Our stay at Bird’s Eye View was awesome! The view from the deck, the hot tub and the friendly deer were some of our favorites about the cabin. We also enjoyed going for walks/hikes up the street…it led to a trail that was very scenic. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed. Housekeeping forgot to leave detergent for the dishwasher but just a quick call to the office and they sent us some! Awesome customer service! The only negatives about the cabin (minor) were: the water in both tubs didn’t drain well while showering, so every shower was taken with backed up water. We didn’t like the electric fireplace-we would’ve preferred a wood burning, but again, minor. Also, there was no WIFI. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Our stay at the Riverside Lodge in July 2013 was awesome! The cabin sits right on the river and you can sit on the porch and enjoy every minute of it! The cabin held all 6 of us very comfortably and could have held more. It was easy to access and a beautiful setting all around. Would definitely stay again!

Frank Frausto January 13, 2014 at 4:30 pm

My wife and I plus my 3 kids have stay at about 4 different cabins and twice on some, we have always enjoyed the various cabins, always clean, well stocked with cooking pots and pans, nature and weather have always been great, If I had to pick one, it would be Bear Cabin, my grandson loves those carved bears outside the cabin.

We LOVED our stay at The Tree House. The house was literally built on the side of a mountain. It is situated in the Lincoln National Forest. The location is secluded, yet close to a few other houses. It’s only 5 minutes to town, and very close to Ski Apache.
The climb up the driveway could be a challenge if there was a lot of snow or ice, but we didn’t have that issue. We spent a lovely Christmas holiday. 5 days was just perfect.
The great room takes up the entire top floor, where the front door is located. Easy access for loading and unloading. Our little dog had a great time watching the wildlife for either of the two decks.
The furnishings are a little better than what you would expect for a vacation cabin. Great kitchen, too.
If you really want to feel like you are in the middle of nature, this is the place for you. Check out the photos. The cabin does not dissappoint. We plan on coming back for another winter visit.

The Brubakers January 13, 2014 at 4:00 pm

We stayed at Art’s Pine Cabin and had an excellent experience. The cabin was very spacious and clean. Everything needed to cook/grill was available. Very nicely furnished. We were very pleased with the cabin and look forward to future stays.

Irma Zaldivar January 13, 2014 at 3:26 pm

Painter’s Mountain Chalet: everything was great, accommodation, location, and support. Thank you.

César Rey Rodríguez January 10, 2014 at 1:20 am

Nos hospedamos en la cabaña Bear´s View y estuvo excelente, cumplió muy bien con nuestras expectativas y más porque vinieron unos familiares de Guanajuato a conocer Ruidoso por todo lo que les habíamos platicado y a ellos también les pareció increíble la cabaña. Recomiendo ampliamente este lugar para alojarse. Gracias por tan buenas vacaciones!!!!
We stayed in the Bear’s View Cabin and it was excellent, very well fulfilled our expectations and more because of Guanajuato relatives came to know Ruidoso for everything we had already talked to them they also found it amazing the cabin. I highly recommend this place to stay. Thank you for a great holiday!!

The Dooley's January 9, 2014 at 3:55 am

Our stay at Tree Tops at Alto Alps was amazing! Tree Tops was the perfect facility for our family of 8 plus a baby. We loved the open space, hot tub, gorgeous scenic view, deer, plenty of linens, and the well stocked kitchen. The skiing was also amazing! Great snow, beautiful weather! This is our second time to rent a Hummingbird facility and we have had nothing but positive experiences! Tish (as many have noted) truly was wonderful to work with. Our family is already asking if we have reserved the Tree Tops for next year! Yes, we do plan to return!
If I had to make a suggestion, I would only make these two for improvement to the Tree Tops Condo. Trust me, they are minor! The positives totally outweigh these two suggestions/minor inconveniences.
First, it would be nice to have had more plates/bowls for the 10-12 the condo can house. I had to wash dishes after each meal in order to have enough for the next. Second, the TV service in the living room was not very clear. The bedroom TV’s worked great but the living room TV had poor reception. Frustrating when we were trying to watch bowl games in the evening. These suggestions are minor but could be helpful for future guests with maximum guests staying.
Thank you Tish and Hummingbird Rental Staff for providing a beautiful place and positive experience for our family to get away and have an amazing time together. See you in December!

fatima January 7, 2014 at 7:47 pm

We stayed in Ponderosa Cabin and we had a wonderful time, its really big and the whole family had a privated space for their own. the only thing is that could be more kitchen supplies because there were not enough pots and pans, also a few towels were dirty, but the cabin is really beautiful and we really enjoyed spent our new years eve in Ponderosa Cabin

VANESSA RAMIREZ January 7, 2014 at 6:06 pm

We stayed at the Elk´s Hollow cabin it was a great experience confortable and the cabin was stocked with everything. We loved the location and the christmas decoration for the season.It was very nice to have see the deers every day by the cabin. I highly recomended for two couples and kids. Amazing view.

Dan And Lisa Bolin January 7, 2014 at 3:06 pm

Unfortunately, our stay at the Bear’s Den cabin was not as pleasant as other postings. We booked the cabin with the understanding that it would sleep six as the cabin had two bedrooms and a pull out sofa. Upon arriving at the cabin, one of the children used the upstairs restroom only to find that the commode did not have water running to it. We called the after hours service number. The young lady that answered was very kind an concerned and sent a repairman over immediately. They fixed the commode and we were very pleased with the response. Once past that issue, we got unpacked and began “setting up house.” It was during this time that things started to go bad.

We attempted to make a pot of coffee, only to find a molded coffee and grounds filter in the coffeemaker and the coffee maker completely clogged up to the point that water would not run through it. My wife spent the next 30 minutes working on cleaning the coffee maker. Once she was able to get it somewhat running, it took almost 20 minutes to brew a pot as the water ran that slow through it, we pulled some coffee cups from the cabinet only to find them completely filthy. We then began to look closer and it was evident that the dishes had either not been used in months, or were never properly cleaned. Keep in mind this is our vacation, and now my wife is spending the next hour or so cleaning the dishes in the cabin.

We get past the dirty dishes, have a meal and enjoy the rest of the evening watching the dear under the cabin as it had a wonderful view of them. We all get ready to go to bed and attempt to pull out the sofa bed. My son pulls out the bed only to find it broken. The mattress support was only held on at the bottom by two of the six springs that were needed. The support was also torn, and hanging under the sofa. Furthermore, the mattress was in poor shape and stained. We “rigged” the bed to hold the two boys and proceeded to get linens from the cabinets. Personally, I wanted to go purchase an air mattress, but my wife asked me not to and that we could find a way to make it works. The linens that we pulled out, not to our surprise at this point, were torn and stained as were the comforters.

Needless to say, the cabin was nowhere near the quality for the over $1000.00 (including our deposit) that we paid for the 4 nights. Personally, I think whatever fees the management company pays to have the cabin cleaned should be paid to my wife. When we left all of the dishes were washed, the cabin was vacuumed and cleaned, and my wife was going to do their laundry before I stopped her. Oh, and on a side note, the coffee pot is ready for the next guest.

I do not know if this is a management problem, a housekeeping problem, or a problem with the owner of the condo not wanting to invest in their property. In either situation, we will never use that cabin again. As far as using Hummingbird, they were prompt on the service call and had a lot of nice cabins that we looked at before booking this one. However, I am nervous to rent from them again where their housekeeping issues are concerned.

At the end of it all, I will say we did not let all of this spoil our family vacation and had a great time on vacation.

Hummingbird Cabins January 13, 2014 at 10:33 pm

Dan and Lisa,

We sincerely apologize for your experience at Bear’s Den. We have emailed you an apology and detailed information on how we have handled your concerns and a special apology offer. We have made housekeeping aware of the cleanliness issues and have notified the home owner of the sleeper sofa’s condition for repair or replacement in the near future. We have also adjusted the sleeping arrangements to exclude the sleeper sofa until appropriate action has been performed. Again, thank you for your feedback, we are truly sorry and we hope you accept our sincerest apologies.
– Jeff West

The Adams Family January 7, 2014 at 2:31 pm

My family (4 adults, 4 kids) stayed at the Bear Bottoms Cabin Dec 27-Jan1. We had a great time thanks to the game room which kept all of the kids entertained. The cabin was just the right size for all of us and we made use of the fully stocked kitchen. We were able to cook whatever we wanted because all of the kitchen utensils needed were available. The cabin is very close to tubing and Ski Apache. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed seeing the wildlife around us. The only issue we had was that the shower head in the second bathroom did not really spray well and it was hard to wash your hair well. We all just used the master bath shower. We would definitely recommend this cabin and hope to come back again one day! This is the perfect cabin for families with kids and teens.

Hugh and Mary January 7, 2014 at 2:23 pm

We have been staying in your cabins for many years and always come back. It’s nice to be able to find something that is big enough for our family and friends. Thanks for everything.

Ricardo Trueba January 7, 2014 at 2:17 am

We enjoyed our stay at Bear’s View very much. The cabin is very cozy and the view of the mountain from the back deck is magnificent. The cabin was well supplied with linens and towels. We apreciated the new appliances.The kids loved the Wifi availability. Only recommendation is to provide more cooking pots and pans and enough plates for the 9 people that the cabin accommodates.

Barry & Annette January 6, 2014 at 9:17 pm

We LOVED our stay at Jack Little Lodge!! The cabin was huge and so clean! The bonus room with the ping pong table kept all the kids very busy when we were not hitting the slopes. The location is perfect. You feel you are not stuck in the city yet everything was just 5 minutes away. Lots of wildlife around the property. The staff was so nice and very easy to deal with. We were very happy with it and can’t wait to come stay again!!

Sheryl January 6, 2014 at 3:25 pm

My three kids and five grandsons and I stayed at Casa Marcia during the Christmas break and had a wonderful time. There were a lot of us and we had plenty of room and fun. Tish is the best. Her customer service is great and I will certainly use Hummingbird Cabins again. Especially as long as Tish is there.
Thank you.

Jeff Meyers January 3, 2014 at 5:30 pm

Our stay at the Riverside Lodge was great! Enough space for our family of 11. Great views of the Rio Ruidoso and surrounding mountains. Would certainly stay again.

Jim January 2, 2014 at 5:01 pm

Peaceful EZ Feeling was exactly that, perfect for our Christmas stay. The owners had decorated and even had a little tree, which made us feel very much at home and welcome. Everything was perfect and had everything that we needed. It couldn’t have been any better, THANK YOU!!

Paula Durocher December 31, 2013 at 5:07 pm

We stayed at Birdie Haven. Our stay was absolutely wonderful!! The condo was stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The staff at Hummingbird Cabins was so helpful throughout the booking process and even when we needed to call upon arrival with a few questions. The only thing that needed attention was that most of the dishes in the cabinets were dirty and we had to prewash everything. We will definitely stay here again and recommend this play to all friends!! Thanks for a wonderful family vacation!!

Adrian Garcia December 31, 2013 at 1:30 am

Second time renting a cabin from Hummingbird. Great customer service (Tish is very courteous). Both times the cabins have been great. No complaints. Will definitely come back. Thanks.

chris yndo December 30, 2013 at 9:57 pm

We stayed at the Cedarside and had a good time.
The TV situation is however unacceptable. I realize that watching TV is not/should not be the top priority whilst on holiday but if you wanted to it was simply a very poor option. The layout of the living area was such that the TV was in the corner of the room with poor/limited seating. The screen size was such that you had to be close, maybe a 30 inch screen? You had to move the couch and chairs if you wanted to attempt a family movie. Additionally the TV was mounted on the Master bedroom wall. If anyone was sleeping in the Master, watching TV in the Living was not a non-starter. The fireplace was begging for the TV to be mounted on it, a little work and this gets done. Lastly the TV in the Master was sub par. Long room, very small TV directly opposite the bed. Watching TV in bed is not an option. Luckily we were out and about most of the time so it was a whatever situation but for those looking for family movie night or watching the big game, not so much.

Dana Bell December 30, 2013 at 8:34 pm

Thank you Hummingbird Cabins! Our stay at your Casa Marcia was great. The accommodations were neat and clean, and had everything we needed to enjoy our couple of nights in Ruidoso. We especially enjoyed the cabin’s convenient location and the cozy fireplace. It was most awesome to have a fenced deck and backyard for our dogs. Not having to walk the dogs in the cold and ice was a blessing. Thanks again and Happy New Year!

Marissa December 30, 2013 at 7:33 pm

Our stay at Peaceful E-Z Feeling was wonderful! The cabin was decorated beautifully and made us feel at home. The location was perfect and close to everything! It was great having 3 king beds! It was fabulous to come back to a warm fire place and hot tub after being on the slopes! We would love to come back again!

Jorge December 30, 2013 at 5:51 pm

We stay at Elk`s Hollow was so great, nice cabin, nice outside weather and nice service from Hummingbird cabins. Definitely I wll consider Hummingbird cabins in my next stay.

Kay Baker December 30, 2013 at 4:22 pm

Tucked Away was perfect for the overflow of our guests who stayed there. The cabin is convienent to our cabin so it was great.

Oscar & Laura January 7, 2014 at 4:08 am

We stayed at The Ponderosa and it was a great cabin. It was 10 of us and there was more than enough room for everybody. The family room was great,and the kitchen was very open. We all enjoyed the fireplace and the outside patio. We are hoping to come back soon.

Gonzalo & Karen December 18, 2013 at 5:14 am

We stayed at The Moose is Loose, we were 2 couples with two kids each couple. Absolutely loved the cabin. It was very comfortable & stocked with everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.

A yarbrough December 12, 2013 at 3:41 am

Tish was very nice at Hummingbird . We stayed at the Bilberry House . Loved the location nice and secluded in alto nm on 5 acres . Loved seeing the deer each day . Only this I would suggest about the house is the owners need to update mattresses and the tv . Only one in house and its very small . Enjoyed are time relaxing in the hot tub in the snow.

Nathian Rodriguez December 10, 2013 at 9:42 pm

First and foremost, the staff and customer service at Hummingbird Cabins is above excellent. They are there to assist you in any way possible, even on holidays. We stayed in one of their cabins for Thanksgiving and they were available to help us with all of our needs. The cabin was great, everything was provided, and we enjoyed the stay. I would definitely recommend Hummingbird Cabins to any and everyone. My family and I will be using them again for all our future visits to Ruidoso.

Loredo Family December 7, 2013 at 3:47 pm

Our stay at Bear’s View Cabin was excellent and very eventful. It snowed two days during our stay. The view is awesome and the cabin is located in a perfect spot. The back deck is perfect for a BBQ and to enjoy the mountain view. My kids are already planning a return trip. We miss the cabin. I will recommend this cabin to family and friends.

RUDY SAUCEDO December 5, 2013 at 4:32 am

I would like to start by saying that the customer service by Hummingbird Cabins was absolutely wonderful, especially the service from Tish, she was extremely helpful, patient and informative.
The great mountain pleasure cabin was a huge hit for my family. It was a beautiful, clean, spacious cabin which comfortably slept eight. The view was wonderful, not to mention the deer my kids saw in the mornnings.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay and can not wait to go back. Again, thanks Humming bird cabins for recommending this cabin.

Kathy & Gil December 2, 2013 at 10:23 pm

The Canyon View Cabin was absolutely magnificent! We absolutely loved the location and view and ALL of the deer were perfect!! The cabin was decorated beautiful and had all of the amenities that we could ask for. I even cooked Thanksgiving dinner and everything was there. Thank you.
The only thing I did notice was it could have been dusted a little better as some of the picture frames especially in the master BR were dusty. Also the lid to the hot tub did not stay down due to the fact the cable was broken. The lid blew off one windy night and scared us. Other than that, our stay was perfect and we will definately come back to stay, as we truly enjoyed ourselves in this cabin.

Donald Jones November 20, 2013 at 9:36 pm

We stayed at Bear Paradise and it was perfect. It was our first time renting a vacation home and will not be our last. My girl friend had never been to Ruidoso and has fallen in love. She had a mule deer come right up to her on th e back deck and videoed the experiance. Told me if I didn’t move her here she would hate me! Loved the cabin. We had some friends join us and everything was perfect. Little issue with the hot tub but was handled great. We are planning a return trip very soon. Thank you so much.

Chrissy November 19, 2013 at 7:31 pm

My stay at Paradise Cabin #2 was fantastic! The cabin, decor and amenities were great. My only complaint was the hard water stain in the bathtub and overall cleanliness of the bathtub. Otherwise, everything was included that we needed. It’s so nice enjoying your coffee out on the patio and so close to the stream. Great location in regards to all the shops and restaurants! I would definitely stay in the property again and will recommend it to everyone.

M. Canate November 13, 2013 at 5:42 pm

We stayed at the Riverside Lodge this past weekend and my family and I had a great time. The location right over the river was wonderful and the scenery was amazing. It was a little difficult to get to with the directions provided, but somehow I was able to get a signal for my GPS to work (thank goodness because it was dark.) All in all great experience and we will visit again soon. Thank you.

Don&Anita November 6, 2013 at 9:50 pm

Our recent stay at Deer Run was Great. It is a beautiful cabin and is very well furnished, and very well stocked. We had great views and a closed in dog run for our pup. It’s a cozy, comfortable cabin. As usual, the staff at Hummingbird was wonderful.

Mabel Samples October 28, 2013 at 2:59 pm

We enjoyed our stay at the Hummingbird Cabin. It was clean and had everything we needed available for a great stay. We’ll tell others about the lovely place we stayed. Our daughter enjoyed the animals and the view was great. Thank you! We’re from Texas too!

Charles Bishop October 21, 2013 at 10:26 pm

Our week at Buena Vista was great. The cabin was clean and as presented.. The ladies at Hummingbird were the best. The the couple that keep everything neat and clean were also great. The minor wireless problem was handled quickly and expertly.. When back in Ruidosa we will use hummingbird again.

Brenda Stockton October 15, 2013 at 5:34 pm

My family and I loved the “carved bear” cabin (as my youngest son fondly referred the cabin to). Lots of space for fellowship, room in the kitchen to move around and ample porch area for relaxing. Cabin was for the most part clean. Cob webs needed to be dusted inside and outside around windows. Surroundings are to beautiful to have to contend with that. More windows to be able to open would have been nice to enjoy outside air especially at night. Sleeper sofa shouldn’t be counted as sleeping space! Springs broken and dangerously poke through! Very uncomfortable! We will love to return and we will! Nothing disappointing enough to turn us away and nothing that can’t be lived with. And that hot tub makes up for a lot!

Sheri Sanderson October 15, 2013 at 12:52 pm

We had a wonderful time at Knotta Bear. The house was very comfortable for 6 people. We were very pleased to be able to have our 4-legged friends with us. The only complaint I have is I wished the back and side yards had been a little better kept. Other than that we would be more than happy to stay again. Thank you Hummingbird for a wonderful 2 weeks in Ruidoso. The location was just perfect.

Hummingbird Cabins October 15, 2013 at 9:46 pm

Sheri – We are so glad you had a wonderful time at Knotta Bear! We had a record breaking rainfall in September and the grass was growing faster than our yard maintenance company could service the properties toward the end of September and first part of October. When the growing season hits again, he will be checking our pet friendly properties more frequently than this season to avoid the tall grass concerns. Thank you for your feedback and for choosing Hummingbird Cabins and we look forward to seeing you again.

Denise Brandon October 14, 2013 at 9:51 pm

We have always been pleased with the our experiences with Hummingbird. We have just returned from a stay at Casa Marcia, which is our second time to stay at this particular place. It is very spacious, clean, affordable, and is in a great location. We love the outdoor deck, and that it is pet friendly. We are going to spend Thanksgiving in Ruidoso, and need a larger space, so we are renting a more spacious condo in Alto from Hummingbird. I appreciate that the staff at Hummingbird is friendly and seems to care about your visit to Ruidoso. I highly recommend Hummingbird for anyone’s vacation needs.

Margie October 14, 2013 at 7:14 pm

We stayed at Happy Bears Cabin in town. The cabin was comfortable and perfect for the four of us; however I would not recommend it to more than four. The neighborhood very quiet. The kitchen was well equiped and user friendly. We loved drinking coffee in the kitchen and watching the deer outside the patio door. Hope to see it again soom day.

andi October 14, 2013 at 5:47 pm

We stayed at Bear’s View and loved it! We loved the view and the decor of the house. We will definitely stay here again!

Cindy October 14, 2013 at 5:29 pm

We stayed at Paradise Found cabin #2. We like the location. It would be more relaxing if there were more comfortable porch chairs (not iron ones) and the debris was picked up along the creek. A wider selection of tv channels would be appreciated, too. The cable connection was bad and we had difficulty even seeing the what channels were available.

mauricio moncada October 10, 2013 at 4:14 pm

We stayed at Next To Heaven for two nights. The view was spectacular and the deck was big enough to accommodate our entire group when we had a BBQ. These two features were my absolute favorites. The kitchen was well equipped and all appliances work smoothly. The cabin has four rooms that can easily accommodate 10 people. Overall the cabin is ample and it has a lot of light and astonishing views. I would rate the cabin 10 out of 10 definitely. I would gladly stay again next time I visit Ruidoso.

Clint McAnally October 2, 2013 at 8:41 pm

Very nice cabin and very quite location. We enjoyed it very much.

Marc & Carolyn Arredondo September 30, 2013 at 11:44 pm

We were very impressed with the responsiveness of the staff at Hummingbird Cabins. We stayed in Nell’s Getaway from 9/23 to 9/30/2023 and had a very wonderful and relaxing week. The experience and close encounter with the wildlife was super. The cabin is kept very clean and well stocked. We have nothing but good to say about this place. The weather was great compared to our HOT weather in Rockwall.
We will most certainly recommend Hummingbird Cabins and Nell’s Getaway.

Alex Preciado Almada September 27, 2013 at 2:30 am

We stayed at Bear Country Cabin over the weekend and we had a really great time. Everything was perfect and clean. The hot tub was awesome and the wildlife was incredible. The location was perfect with excellent views. Would definitely stay there again.

Thx for this weekend you do an excellent job!!

Lee and Mindy September 25, 2013 at 10:57 pm

We stayed at Bear Bottoms cabin for a much needed Vacation at the end of July 2013. The views were amazing, and the cabin was nice and cozy. It was nice to be able to relax on the deck while burgers were cooking on the grill, and the hot tub was always warm and ready for us. The wildlife were EVERYWHERE. We saw a few deer wandering around a time or two, and the added decoration of all the bears help to make the experience.
We would definitely recommend this place to any group (or couple) looking to escape the city life and relax in the Ruidoso mountains.

Kel September 25, 2013 at 6:49 pm

We all loved the cabin, hot tub & the view. There was one issue but the company was able to handle it right alway! I will be renting from them again in the furture.

Steve and Gayle Hinshaw September 19, 2013 at 8:20 pm

We are Texas city slickers that wanted to escape the oppresive Texas heat.
We stayed at Cabin on the Mountain from 8-12-13 to 8-19-13 , we had a great time and the week went by in a flash. We enjoyed the quiet area and enjoyed having visitors of a huge elk, deer , wild turkeys, many birds, chipmunks. The deer corn and bird seed were appreciated by our visitors.
We brought our schnauzer and appreciated that this cabin was pet friendly. The beds were comfortable and the king size bed was great in the master bedroom. The cabin was stocked with everything we needed, except that we ran out of paper products after a few days , but a trip to WallyWorld took care of that.(no big deal). We enjoyed the view and the afternoon rain showers were amazing to see coming across the top of the mountain from the front porch. This was our first experience of renting a cabin and it wont be our last, we enjoyed having our space and not being bothered by housekeeping wanting to clean the rooms daily. This cabin is up the mountain which we really loved, and the privacy without the traffic.
The decor is really nice especially the indian motif decor in the great room.The great room has vaulted ceiling and it made the room feel huge
we spent most of our time in this room and really enjoyed its open feel. This cabin had air conditioning and almost new washer and dryer which we utilized a few times. The staff of Hummingbird Cabins were very friendly and helpful, the directions to the cabin were very detailed and we arrived without getting lost. The only few negative things were that the housekeeping needs to be more detailed , we found heavy dust under furniture, and found someone elses dirty sock under the bed otherwise, we felt the cabin was clean and comfy. We are looking forward to returning next August to again enjoy the wonderful Ruidoso weather and would love to stay in the same cabin again. Please forward these comments to the owner of this cabin because we really enjoyed it and appreciated them others to enjoy this gem. Thanks again Hummingbird Cabins, see you next year.

Randy & Laura Pieper September 18, 2013 at 10:02 pm

Absolutely loved staying at Cabin on the Mountain! Beautiful inside and out. Very peaceful. Felt like home away from home! Will stay here again!

Peggy & Mark Enderlin September 10, 2013 at 12:47 am

We stayed at Almost Heaven on Labor Day weekend. We were not at the cabin much do to so many other things going on, however it was a nice size for 6 adults. Enjoyed the deck and BBQ one night. We all felt comfortable and agreed it was a very nice place!! Thank you.

Simon and Sara Rubio September 9, 2013 at 8:24 pm

We stayed at the Ponderosa cabin and it was a very beautiful cabin. It was very comfy and we had plenty of room. The scenery was very beautiful, we got to see baby deer on our first night! It was so nice and quite as well. Thank you Hummingbird Cabins.

Jason and Ashley Granger's Group September 10, 2013 at 3:36 pm

We stayed at the Arts Pine View, this cabin was so amazing and beautiful. It had everything you could want pool table, hot tub, great patio space, and fully stocked house for all your needs, and beautiful bed rooms. The view was great and we saw deer every morning and in the late afternoons. We won’t stay anywhere else every time we come to Ruidoso and for sure we will always use hummingbird cabins. Thanks for such an amazing weekend it was great!!!

Ricky and Romana Lucas September 3, 2013 at 4:09 pm

We enjoyed our stay at the Bilberry Cabin. It was so quite and peaceful. The view at this location was amazing and there was a lot of wildlife running around throughout the day. We needed a nice relaxing get away and we found it.

Joel McKnight September 3, 2013 at 3:23 pm

Our stay thhis past wekend (Labor Day) was great! The cabin was well stocked and we did not experience any problems, as usual. We saw deer, turkeys, hummers, and other wildlife just outside the cabin. We will continue to stay with Hummingbird CAbins each time we travel to Ruidoso for a relaxing getaway.

Wayne & Linda September 3, 2013 at 2:11 am

The Tree House was a wonderful place to stay. The view of the mountains was exceptional. We enjoyed the visit very much. The house was well stocked with linens and dishes. We were able to bring our other family member, our dog, and he enjoyed watching the deer from the deck. Hummingbird Cabins staff was more than helpful and great to work with.
Thanks for a great long weekend at a wonderful home. Thanks, too, to the owner that personally called to help us get the TV working.

Elaine Marshall August 28, 2013 at 12:30 pm

Loved staying at Nell’s Getaway. It was so peaceful there. Enjoyed the deck. Everything imaginable was provided. Planning on returning there next year. Thank Hummingbird Cabins.

Linda Jackson August 26, 2013 at 2:09 pm

Happy Bear Cabin – we stayed there for 6 nights. The Good – very clean, beds were great, had a deer trail in back yard, lots of birds, well stocked for cooking, quite and easy, convenient to get to. That said, a little more communication would have been helpful. The front door lock needs the combination keyed in “twice” to lock and unlock. The lock was secured a 2×3.5 inch wood block and 1 small screw providing only minimum security (but really not an issue). I walked around and saw a washer-dryer in a locked room (basement). It was not until we were leaving that we knew that there is a trap door in a closet that provides access to this. We would have washed clothes had we knew about the trap door. The ceiling fan squeaked fairly loud IF the light was turned off, so using it to sleep under was an issue (really not needed. It was cool enough with a window open). Would I stay in Happy Bear Cabin again–definitely.

We had an amazing time staying at Peaceful EZ Feeling cabin! The views were beautiful every which way we turned and the cabin was truly a peaceful getaway for our family. We enjoyed having all the amenities of a home during our stay, the cabin was truly beautiful. We will definitely be staying again while in Ruidoso!

Kathy August 21, 2013 at 6:46 pm

Our stay at Almost Heaven was wonderful. Coming from the Texas Hill Country, the cool and pine air is always a relief. It rained on and off the whole time we were there so the back deck furniture was always wet. I know to get a covered deck when we come in August since it is monsoon season since I love to sit outside in the mountains. I don’t know what I was thinking. All in all, it was a great break and I always use Hummingbird Cabins when I come to Ruidoso.

Roberta August 20, 2013 at 1:07 am

Enjoyed our four night stay at Paradise Found #2. The bed was very comfortable and we loved the back porch for grilling and relaxing. Since it had been raining the creek was running. The cabin was clean, bed linens were nice and there were ample towels for our stay. Did not have to use the A/C but was good to have it should it have been needed. Will return to this cabin when possible.

Stayed at Bear Country; so far, the least favorite of the three HB cabins we’ve rented. Location was good, pet friendly is a must, the deck was nice and it was quiet. But the mattresses were very very uncomfortable, so much so that one of our party slept on the sofa. The upstairs shower had very poor water pressure. Overall, the place needs a little maintenance, and perhaps some TLC and a good scrubbing. We found the kitchen to be under stocked with utensils and pots and pans. Hopefully we will find a HB pet friendly cabin that is perfect for us next time.

We’ve done condos in Hawaii and even a villa in St. Martin, but this was a first for us – renting a cabin in the U.S. It was great! We understood why the Nell’s enjoy their getaway. We had a problem with the entertainment system (couldn’t get the DVD player to play) but the view from the deck was entertaining in and of itself. The local squirrel kept us amused all day. Someone had broken the footrest for one of the recliners, and the sliding glass door sometimes slipped off the track, but these were minor issues that didn’t detract from the peace and quiet of this location. And we enjoyed meeting Barbara face-to-face rather than just over the phone. We will definitely be back! Thanks so much for a great week.

The Nells September 29, 2013 at 5:40 pm

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our little Getaway. We have worked to resolve the problem with the entertainment system, and will get the sliding door issue resolved. We too love Hummingbird because they always do their best to let us know of problems and they work diligently to keep everything ii tip-top shape. We have added a hammock, so plan to come back and enjoy!

Shannon KIrkland August 13, 2013 at 3:05 pm

We enjoyed our stay at Bear View. It was a great location, in close proximity to the shopping. The cabin was clean and the furnishings were nice. The air conditioning took a while to work–the central heat/air barely moved any air. The swamp cooler did manage to finally cool the cabin but was noisy. The cabin could have used a couple more rolls of toilet paper for the length of our stay. We would stay at this cabin again.

Carter-North Family August 12, 2013 at 10:20 pm

Buena Vista is a gem in the pines. Spotless. Great porch. Super appointments. Fully-stocked kitchen. We’ll be back!

Candace Gross August 10, 2013 at 3:41 pm

This was my second stay in the Bear Country Cabin where the grandkids have joined me for a cool getaway from Texas summer heat. I love the location within walking distance to shops, but secluded and quiet. The cabin is spacious and very comfortable, outside decks just wonderful. A couple of suggestions: replace the mattress on the sofa sleeper as it is just awful for whoever draws the short straw for sleeping there. Also the upstairs shower nozzle is less than adequate.

De Luna Family August 7, 2013 at 1:38 am

Thank you for pleasant and relaxing weekend. Our family enjoyed the great outdoors. The cabin at Deer Run was a nice cabin with all the needs that everyone needed to enjoy there stay. There was a slight problem we encountered with pet hair all around us, but we managed.

Jean Maines August 6, 2013 at 3:07 am

We stayed six nights at the Valley View cabin. It was comfortable for our family of four. We especially appreciated the TV/DVD player and wireless Internet in the house for relaxation after our daily 5-6 mile hikes. The living room was very comfortable, although if we were a party of six, the seating would have been inadequate. The kitchen seemed well stocked for six people and we had everything we needed for simple meal preparation. The kitchen was quite small, but functional if only one person is cooking. We loved the neighborhood and decks–perfect for evening strolls and soaking in the view.

On the down side, the bedding left some to be desired– flannel sheets in July/August were particularly unwelcome. The sheets on the twin beds were also stained. We found a mishmash of cotton sheets in the closet to make the twin beds more comfortable for summer. No such luck in the master bedroom upstairs. I would also say the bathrooms were pretty run down for a property at this price point. I would hesitate to recommend it for this reason. We did not utilize the hot tub, or the air conditioning, but I was still glad that ac was an option on a couple of warm afternoons.

Janet August 5, 2013 at 11:01 pm

We arrived on a rainy Wednesday afternoon to a clean, nice cabin nestled between two mountains, surrounded by forest. The next morning, we discovered only one hardwire wi-fi hookup and no cell service due to the surrounding mountains. My grandson needed his laptop to work on a school project with a deadline; my son needed his company laptop for business and he had also scheduled a conference call the following Monday. Knowing this wasn’t going to work, I called HB (on the cabin phone) to see if they had any other rental available with wi-fi throughout and good cell service. They said they’d check to see what was available for our group and call me back. A short time later, the office called. They had one rental left that was suitable for our family. We hurriedly re-packed, went by the HB office, got the directions and headed to our new digs – a mountain home with an astounding view of Sierra Blanca. When we arrived, housekeeping hadn’t been there yet, but was on the way. They made ready a 4 bedroom/3 bath home in less than 2 1/2 hours and it was spotless. We rent from HB Cabins whenever we’re in Ruidoso. They are always courteous, friendly, helpful, an amazing group of people who understand what customer service is all about. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and we will continue to rent from this fine group of people.

Nan & Tommy August 5, 2013 at 6:08 pm

We have stayed at Paradise Found cabins several times. We like the location. Although the cabins are basically identical, we prefer the one closest to the road. We stayed in the other one July 26 thru 29. It would be more relaxing if there were more comfortable porch chairs (not iron ones) and the debris was picked up along the creek. A wider selection of tv channels would be appreciated, too.

Emma Rodriguez July 31, 2013 at 8:20 pm

We were up there the weekend of July 20 and had a great time.We relax enjoyed the sites and loved the deer coming up the driveway. It was very breath takiing. The weather was great nice and cool since we are from El Paso, Texas. Thank you for everything.

Renee Aguirre July 30, 2013 at 3:20 pm

We loved spending the weekend at Deer Crossing this past weekend. We were hesitant about renting a cabin because we always stay in hotels but we were pleasantly surprised. The cabin was very clean and cozy I will definitely contact hummingbird cabins for future cabin rentals. Even my father was impressed with our weekend accommodations and he is really hard to please because he wants his grand kids to stay in clean environments. Thanks for a nice weekend getaway hummingbird cabins 🙂

Mike & Amber July 30, 2013 at 2:10 pm

We stayed at A Cool Place cabin over the weekend and had a really great time. The cabin was clean, the view was great and we are already looking forward to our next visit. It is such a peaceful and beautiful city. Only thing I would do differently next time would be to bring fans from home. We are accustomed to keeping it very cool when we sleep. The weather wasn’t hot enough for the A/C to come on, but wasn’t cold enough for a heater. The cabin did not have ceiling fans so there was no air flow. We will remember that on our next trip. Otherwise, it was great!

Codye Pittman July 30, 2013 at 2:53 am

We stayed at Bear Bottoms. Overall, it was a very nice cabin. My only complaint is that the grill was extremely dirty from previous users. There was very little propane in the bottle, which we used just to get the grill clean enough to use. There was no spare bottle available. I called to request a bottle and was told I would be charged a $75 after-hour charge. We ended up trading out the bottle on our own and were told we will be reimbursed. We had to drive 10 miles to Lawrence Brothers to trade out the bottle at 9:00 at night. I recommend that bottles be checked after each rental to ensure that there is enough propane to grill or that a spare bottle be available.

Hummingbird Cabins July 30, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Codye – We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Bear Bottoms. We recognize that the propane running out is an inconvenience. We are working on developing a system that will allow housekeeping to visually check the bottles with a propane pressure gauge after every visit. Our current program checks the propane once a month. I will forward your comment onto the owners of Bear Bottoms about having a second tank. We will work to make sure the next time you visit Ruidoso with Hummingbird Cabins you will not have to worry about grilling and propane concerns. Thank you very much for giving your feedback.

Bear bottoms July 31, 2013 at 3:37 am

As owners of Bear Bottoms we appreciate all comments from our guests. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and am sorry for the bad grilling experience. We did not realize there was only 1 tank. We have corrected that situation and now have 2 tanks and a clean grill! Again thanks for your honest review and we hope you visit us again. Steve and Kay

Glen and Carmen Loveland July 30, 2013 at 12:24 am

We spent 7 days at Bear Paradise and had a really great and enjoyable time,the house and hot tub was fantastic,look forward to returning.

Victor July 23, 2013 at 9:11 pm

we enjoy been here for the week end, this is a wonderful cabin, right in the woods, we had a chance to do a hiking all the way to the top of the mountain enjoying the magnificent views and the deers crossing all over the place, great place to stay…

Larry Brown July 29, 2013 at 10:47 pm

We had a wonderful time this past weekend at Birds Eye View. Just hung out in the amazing cabin, played cards, spent lot of time in hot tub and hand fed the deer. Slept at night with the windows open and cooked most of our meals. We will be back, very much worth the money. Only suggestion I would make is a little weed eating around the front.

Hummingbird Cabins July 29, 2013 at 11:08 pm

Larry – We are so happy you enjoyed Bird’s Eye View. We have forwarded your yard maintenance suggestion on to Bird’s Eye View’s owners. We look forward to seeing you next time!

Shyrlee, Phillip Reid & 6Grandkids July 23, 2013 at 7:19 pm

Great trip,great cabin, great fun!!! Everything about the cabin was perfect. Plenty of room for all of us. Close to all we wanted to do &outside room for the smaller ones to release their energy. & we ALL loved the hot tub!!! Me & GDad want to come back just for a relaxing weekend real soon! thank you for all your help.

Kristy July 23, 2013 at 7:07 pm

This was our first visit to Ruidoso and we stayed at Cedar lodge. We were very happy with the size of the cabin, the decor was beautiful, the wild life was amazing to watch from the huge window in the dining area and over all was a very positive and relaxing trip. We will definitely be back. One thing I would recommend is more pots and pans. It was difficult to cook for 12 people with the cooking supplies that were in the cabin. Also we had to rewash dishes before using them because of the condition they were left in which was a little bit disappointing.

Steve Kill July 23, 2013 at 12:24 pm

We had a great visit to Ruidoso. Staying at the cabin was a plus it has all the amenities a person could need. It’s like being at your home away from home. Took the time to go for a great hike and relax on the deck while looking at the deer.

Randy and Julie Fox July 23, 2013 at 12:56 am

We stayed at The Sierra Escape for 6 nights in July. It was hot the first couple of days so the AC in the cabin was appreciated. The house itself is spacious, well decorated clean, and charming. We have a 14 year old and an 11 year old and they stayed in the downstairs bedrooms and we stayed in the enormous loft bedroom.
All the utilities functioned very well, and the kitchen is very well stocked with Utensils and dishes. The location we found to be excellent, with great views of Sierra Blanca right off the deck. The hot tub was easy to operate and was very pleasant in the evenings. The location is just far enough from town, but close enough to drive in for dinner if you need to.
Two minor issues. We ran out of toilet paper, so I read the instructions (there are a lot of them, and since they have a rather large deposit, we didn’t want to miss anything). Bottom line is they only stock 2 rolls per bathroom and can’t really replace it if you run out. Not a problem, but we need to know that ahead of time.
Second, You can’t leave any trash on the property, that means that on departure day you have to strip every last napkin front he house, and haul a stinky bag of garbage on top of you luggage, to a random “community” trash bin. Kind of weird. A better option would be to allow one small bag of last morning trash to be picked up by the housekeepers. I would rent this cabin again, and the Hummingbird cabin folks were very nice.

I would say one more thing. Every single person I came into contact with in New Mexico, and Ruidoso in particular, was real damn nice. Real genuine, and a pleasure to converse with. Good on ya New Mexico, you’ve raised your people well.

Joel McKnight July 23, 2013 at 12:05 am

We had a great time last weekend staying at Cabin on the Mountain. furnishings were great. Will come back next month.

Curtis July 22, 2013 at 10:26 pm

We enjoyed Birds Eye View very much. The view was great. The cabin was very homey. Hot tub was wonderful. It was a little hard to find. GPS didn’t recognize address. Needed a map. Will stay there again.

Hummingbird Cabins July 27, 2013 at 6:37 pm

Curtis – We are very happy you enjoyed Bird’s Eye View! We are aware that GPS is very unreliable here in Ruidoso, NM for some reason. We have on our agenda to find a way to fix the GPS locators on many of the navigation sites. We always recommend using GPS only after referencing our written directions we send out via email. Nonetheless, we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Lydia Ray July 22, 2013 at 8:49 pm

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sierra cabin. It was very homey and gorgeous; we can’t wait to book our next trip to Ruidoso. Thanks!

Barbara Peterson July 22, 2013 at 2:47 pm

Almost Heaven was a very nice clean,quiet, and refreshingly decorated. It rained off and on making the pines smell even more refreshing. enjoyed cooking out and relaxing in the hot tub.

Kay Fletcher July 20, 2013 at 1:50 pm

This is the second time we stayed at Casa Marcia. We had 3 adults staying at the cabin and there were 4 towels to use for five days. Also, the owner(we surmise)of the cabin lives across the driveway and he was constantly around our place this time. If we had not figured out he was an owner, we probably would have called to complain.Kind of weird to us.

Hummingbird Cabins July 29, 2013 at 11:22 pm

Kay – The owner’s of Casa Marcia do not live in the area. Would you mind emailing us at info@hummingbird-cabins and informing us a little bit more on this individual that was of concern. This is the first complaint we have had of this nature. We’d like to make sure this does not happen again to anyone and most especially if you choose to stay at Casa Marcia again in the future. We’d appreciate your time with this. Thanks so much for being our customer.

Sarah Swaim July 19, 2013 at 8:07 pm

We had a wonderful time at the incredible one. It was perfect for 3 couples!

Cheryl July 11, 2013 at 2:02 am

The cabin was better then the picture! Very quiet and the wildlife was amazing! Overall it was clean, but the cookwear could have been cleaner. Will definatly stay again and have recommended it in more then a few occasions!

Reyes A Cuevas July 10, 2013 at 8:03 pm

I really enjoy the condo I rented it was very confortable.

I have two comments to improve the service.

1. Address needs to be very accurate, I programmed my gps and had problems because I did not reach my destination at 1st time due to address had 2 different numbers and actually the street was different.

2. I do not know if you are going to come back the deposit to 200 usd I left as warranty. I did not take anything but there is not a confirmation neither I know when it will be refunded.

I appreciate you can reply back to my e-mail addres for more details…

Francisco Frausto July 9, 2013 at 2:37 pm

We enjoyed our stay at the Bear Cabin, this is the second time at this cabin, and our 5th time at various cabins, but with you all, cabins are always clean and quiet and relaxing, not to mention, but most important, is we can take our dog with us as a family, Thank You

Sherri Turnipseed July 9, 2013 at 1:41 pm

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Canyon View cabin; such a nice, homey atmosphere. We have stayed with Hummingbird Cabins for 4 visits to Ruidoso and have already booked our 5th visit for October 2013!! Your website is very user friendly, and everyone we have talked with has been so kind and accomodating!!

Mandy Mader July 9, 2013 at 12:33 pm

Our stay was great and would book through hummingbird cabins again. The cabin was beautiful. The only 2 items I can complain about is that I never did figure out how to work the TV in the living room and no propane in the gas grill. Our rib eyes weren’t as tasty because we had to cook them inside.

Greg schumacher July 9, 2013 at 12:18 am

Very much enjoyed our stay at aspen retreat,the place was very clean and we felt relaxed shortly after arrival.This is an excellent property and I hope to come back. Thanks, Greg

Eduardo Reynoso July 9, 2013 at 12:12 am

Awesome time, the cabin was great.

Christian W. July 8, 2013 at 8:56 pm

It was one of the best stays and most relaxing weekends we had at Ruidoso in a long time. This particular Cabin was extremely clean, away from the noise and traffic. My little daughter loved it, she just wanted to go back to the cabin every time we would go out to visit the town; my wife and I loved it as well.

We have already decided that we would go back to this particular cabin Hummingbird Cabins/ Paradise Found #2 for our next stay.

Thank you for making our weekend so restful.

Jake July 8, 2013 at 8:02 pm

We had a wonderful stay. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to stay longer. We do appreciate the nice rain you arranged for us. No complaints.

Kimberley July 8, 2013 at 6:35 pm

We loved the Hummingbird Cabin – immediately when we walked in, we were charmed! The location, décor, fireplace and the hottub were all perfect and inviting!!! We look forward to returning next year.

Cherie Barker July 8, 2013 at 4:33 pm

We had a great time at the Lazy Moose Lodge. It was clean and the staff at Hummingbird cabins rental were great to work with! No negatives at all! Would rent from them again!

Gary July 8, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Very clean and nice.

Alex Tackman July 8, 2013 at 1:50 pm

We stayed on the Tucked Away cabin for two nights in June. Great location for us, cabin was immaculate. Entire family enjoyed the trip. My only negative comment is that we left messages for the Realtor affiliated with Hummingbird Cabins, and never had any response. Thanks!

Greg Palko July 8, 2013 at 12:49 pm

Three + 1 = 4 but 10 is a better rating to describe our experience with Hummingbird Cabins and our enjoyment of the Canyon View Cabin. The only thing that would make the cabin better would be a king size bed, a minor detail. I have never had a bad experience with Hummingbird Cabins. Thanks.

Ben smith July 7, 2013 at 11:22 pm

Great as always. It was our second time at that cabin and our 4 th time with hummingbird. Customer service is always great! Ready to go back already.

Debby Bedingfield July 7, 2013 at 8:31 pm

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin so much we hope to do it again real soon. We’ve been telling all of our friends about you also.

Suzanne Henderson July 7, 2013 at 7:37 pm

Our stay was great. The cabin was wonderful. The only suggestion I have is to print some directions to use the DVD players. We do not have Direct TV at home, so we were not familiar with the necessary settings to be able to play a DVD. Other than that, everything was great. We will be back to stay again.

Hummingbird Cabins July 27, 2013 at 7:36 pm

Suzanne – Thank you for your comments. We will work on taking your concerns and having directions written up for this TV set up. The TV was brand new at the time of your stay and I believe so were some of the components. We hope to see you again soon in Ruidoso!

Rosie July 7, 2013 at 4:44 pm

We enjoyed the quiet, and the views of the mountains across the way, were terrific. Unfortunately, we don’t do well with stairs, so another place would have fit our needs better. Also,we found the tone of all the “rules” quite hostile. Maybe, you could tone that down a bit.

Val Smith July 7, 2013 at 4:02 pm

We have really enjoyed every Hummingbird cabin we have stayed at, but the Lazy Moose Lodge was the best one yet! We were able stay comfortably, with all the amenities & wewere able to feed the deer. The neighborhood was very quiet and the location could not have been better for us. We will definately be back!

Chris Van Dooren July 7, 2013 at 3:03 pm

hot tub didn’t function “fully”; not having a/c and weather very warm made stay quite uncomfortable. Will go with a/c place next time. Condition of cabin “sub-par”, curtains in bedroom “poor”, no screen door on living room patio door (couldn’t open to get “air”). TV’s didn’t function properly.

Mika McDaniel August 4, 2014 at 11:25 pm

We just returned from a long weekend at Ruidoso and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peaceful EZ Feeling cabin. The cabin totally holds up to its name!! It had everything we needed to relax along with the perfect view!! We will definitely be returning.

Steve and Sara Shelton July 7, 2013 at 2:50 pm

Great stay once again at the tree house…..had another bear visit……loved the woodpeckers and mountain jays and hummers…..what a lovely place! Only complaint…..we were there 9 days and there is never enough trash bags (3!) or toilet paper……since we do not know what to buy I would suggest you supplying more for the guests so you do not end up with plumbing issues….

Janelle July 7, 2013 at 4:15 am

The cabin was great. The views were great… But we had to leave a day early because we couldn’t really relax & enjoy our time there. We brought our family of four which included a toddler and neglected to bring a gate for the top of the stairs. If we had done better research before hand and had not made such a last minute decision on where to stay, we would have probably had a better time at a different Hummingbird cabin.

Liz July 7, 2013 at 2:08 am

Absolutely loved the cabin we stayed in. It was very spacious. Fully stocked with everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again

Mitch Stacy July 7, 2013 at 1:46 am

Tree House was awesome. Fit our needs perfectly. Nice and comfy stay. Will ask for this home again.

Dickie Faught July 7, 2013 at 1:09 am

We LOVED Enchanted Moose – the whole weekend was wonderful. We enjoyed the decks, the outside grill and the hot tub the most. We spent most of the time we were there outside. We will definitely reserve Enchanted Moose again. It was spacious, neat and clean. Thank you for making us so welcome!

Corlis Chamberlain July 6, 2013 at 11:07 pm

I loved my stay in your cabin. Everything was neat and clean. The hot tub was awesome and the wildlife was incredible. The location was perfect with excellent views. Loved the town and surrounding areas to drive and take pictures. All the modern amenities that I needed with an outdoors feel. The cabin is decorated in a bear motif that is very cute. It was great to sit out on the deck in the master bedroom in the morning to drink my coffee and watch the deer. I loved it and would love to come back again, maybe for a family get-together.

Todd & Charla July 6, 2013 at 10:04 pm

Our stay at the Antlers at Cedar Creek cabin was great. There was plenty of room and the accommodations were nice. It was great to sit on the front porch and watch the wildlife and it was a great break from the West Texas heat. My only advice to visitors to this cabin (in the summertime) is to bring a fan or two, especially for the upstairs. There are no ceiling fans up there and the cabin does not supply any kind of fan.
