We found this rental to be a comfortable location to explore the Ruidoso area. It was up a steep windy road that was both close and away from town. Fairly private with only a couple of neighbors barely visible from the porch. Not much of a view, but really nice in the woods including looking out from the hot tub. Lots of wildlife including deer, elk, and we filled the hummingbird feeder so they were buzzing everywhere. As we arrived, we were greeted by two deer - one of which actually came right up to us and let us pet it's head. We found an awesome hike just a few miles away at the Perk Canyon Trailhead - a windy hike up a canyon along a stream with endless trees, wildflowers, deer, ... It was a bit longer than we expected, but the whole hike was just gorgeous. We also explored Grindstone Lake, Alto Lake, and went up the long and amazingly scenic road to the Ski slope. Just awesome hiking in the woods and mountains. And, our visit to the Enchanted Vine Winery (not the bar downtown, but the actual winery) was so much fun. Take a tour if you like wine! Cool place. On the downside, the town seems really depressed economically. The entire town closes up at about 5 pm including almost ALL of the restaurants. Almost NO PLACE is open for dinner, and the few open were crowded and the staff was less than nice. Half the stores were simply closed midweek. And, lots of stores seemed permanently closed and/or hiring so they were closed because they had no staff. A truly beautiful place 'outdoors' with a tourist town that is clearly having issues. One store you should totally check out is Rebecca's Herb Shop - really neat place with jars and jars of spices, teas, herbal remedies, ... Otherwise, the house itself does need some updating or we'd have given it 5 stars instead of 4 stars. They especially need to get a new electronic door lock that we just couldn't get to work (maybe it just needs a new battery, but we've used tons of electronic door locks and just couldn't get this one to open without trying ten times), the windows upstairs that may have a view couldn't be seen through, and the place could use some updating in the kitchen for sure. Such a nice house that just misses the mark a little on some things that could easily be upgraded to make it perfect. Even with those few things, we found the place to be very comfortable and enjoyed our stay a lot. We would recommend staying at this vacation rental and may come again if we ever head that direction...!

We enjoyed your beautiful cabin with amazing views! The hot tub was a welcome, relaxing break between softball games and the large porch was perfect for sitting and soaking in the beautiful surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay!

My lovely girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the Alhambra cabin. Great place in the upper mountain area. Secluded and quiet with neighbors but no one on top of you, plenty of privacy. The place is better than the pictures. Great layout for bigger groups and plenty of sleeping space. The hot tub was lovely, especially while it was snowing.

We were greeted by a deer as soon as we arrived at the property! The views from the porch were beautiful and the location of the cabin is great for a fun getaway with your partner or family. Will definitely book again!

We loved this cabin! Enjoyed being out on the deck feeding deer. Saw a fox & feed hummingbirds. We came to visit family & relax- Perfect place to do so. Loved the axe throwing in town! Great weekend! Thank you!
By Patricia, Posted: 07/28/2020
This house was a great place to stay - close to downtown Ruidoso, but remote enough to be super quiet and private. The covered deck was perfect for when it rained, the hot tub was just the thing after hiking, and the people at Hummingbird Cabins were amazing! We had a few questions (and one problem of our own making) - and they were available and incredibly helpful, taking care of things right away. I can't thank them enough for their help! We were nervous about renting a place that hadn't been rated, but we loved it. One note for winter visitors - the road is gravel and curvy/steep in parts - you'll probably want 4wd or have some good snow/ice driving skills. :)

Hot tub bubbles didn't work, called maintenance and they sent over someone from a local service. Service man said “ look they don't want to sink anymore money into this so your kinda stuck”... struck me as odd but it was okay...no sharp knives for preparing meals... and a dish drainer would have been helpful when doing dishes for 6 people, and beds are really hard.... but other than these small things everything else was PERFECT!

I traveled all the way from Oregon for a weekend getaway with my spouse. The property listing does not do the physical property justice. My expectations for ease of booking and check-in, physical condition of the property, location, and overall stay were greatly exceeded. The decor and furniture in the home provide a very welcoming rustic cabin feel with modern amenities, the hot tub is in good condition and works well, the kitchen is large and has plenty of counter space for feeding and entertaining all guests, the WiFi worked perfectly and was easily accessible, there are plenty of bathrooms to accommodate all guests and extra bedding for added guest comfort. Checking out was also very simple and painless. We were also fortunate enough to be graced by some of the local wildlife at our front door on our first morning there, they are so comfortable with visitors that you are able to get up close to them. The only negative part of my experience was having to leave. I wish we could have stayed a few more days to enjoy to peace and tranquility. I will definitely be booking this property again in the future when I am visiting Ruidoso.
