Property pretty much as shown. The road below the property is very busy as it is one of the local cut-throughs to bypass midtown. Traffic seemed to die down about bed time. No A/C which we missed when reading the listing, but we opening the windows at night allowed the house to cool down for bed. We would stay here again.

Being greeted by the local deer population gave us the isolated feel we were looking for.

Beautiful cabin that is nearby to everything in town while still giving that feeling of isolation you look forward to with a cabin!

The cabin was very central , the location was awesome , in the winter since the cabin is kind of high the road to get up there is steep . Everything was ready for use once we got there, the jacuzzi is amazing and really good views . Totally recommend.

Amazing getaway cabin in the woods. Great location ?

Beautiful cabin, great location. Hot tub worked great and so did the fire place. Also communication with the host was super simple and accommodating. Thank you!

Place was really nice. It's in a really good area, everything is nearby. I would just be mindful of driveway because it is steep & can be dangerous during winter.

“Great spot in a quiet area. The hot tub looking up the mountain was a nice surprise”
By Ernesto, Posted: 10/19/2020
Located just off the road up a long curved driveway. Settled high on a mountainside with great views of the tall pines. The hot tub is nestled in the back deck with nothing but nature visible. We saw plenty of deer walking along side the creek located in fron of home. It was a great stay.

We had a fantastic stay! The cabin was clean and well stocked. This is the second property we've booked through hummingbird cabins and they will continue to be who we rent from in the future.
By Tasia, Posted: 09/15/2020
This cabin was the perfect place to relax. It was clean, comfy and in a great location. The hot tub is private and offered nice views of the mountainside that the cabin is up against. Overall, great place to stay!
By Alex, Posted: 08/21/2020
Easy checkin in.
By Ty, Posted: 07/27/2020
Nice place, but a screen was broken, a hole was in the wall, 2 out of three patio chairs were broken, hot tub cover was broken and I wished it had been noted so That I would not be held responsible. Also trash and cigarette butts, that weren't ours, need to be cleaned up from property.

Very enjoyable stay!! Some maintenance needed, but overall a beautiful location and a lovely cabin.

Such a cozy cabin and perfect location!
By Jeannie, Posted: 11/02/2019
We enjoyed our stay. The cabin feels more secluded than it actually is. We liked that aspect. I recommend it,. We would stay here again. Tip: Don’t waste your money on the packaged firewood at the WalMart. Even with most all of a box of fire-starter blocks, it would NOT burn.
By Marcus, Posted: 10/25/2019
Everything was just the way I expected it to be....the place was perfect....I will definitely recommend Hummingbird to my family and friends.....me and my wife will make it a point to rent from Hummingbird in the future....Thanks for everything!!!!
By Alexa, Posted: 10/14/2019
We would stay here again. It was exactly as described. It is near everything but a little off the road and backs up to a wooded area so it feels secluded. Hot tub was great! I was worried about the deck from a previous review but it wasn’t damaged at all.
By Amy, Posted: 06/11/2019
The home was very clean and orderly and very well supplied. The lot is well off the road and in a peaceful setting with loads of dear and elk. Front road is a little busy but extremly convenient for "downtown" area. The back deck with the hot tube, DANGEROUSLY UN REPAIRED, wood extremely warped and uneven. The house is lovely, however could use some maintenance. Sun block curtains would be appreciated for both bedrooms as the morning light comes in with a vengeance, darkening curtains are really needed. As well as curtains for the front room patio doors. So odd not to have any curtains for guests. Serious internet issues. Felt very safe and secure here.

Very easy to deal with and great place to stay.
By Kelly, Posted: 04/24/2019
Bear Paradise is a nice & relaxing cabin, close to town, and pretty secluded with a nice stream running in front of the house. Also they have a brand new hot tub, which is a nice update from the sunken in one that was there before.
The description may need updated. States coffee or k-cups but they do not have a Keurig at this location. I highly recommend Hummingbird Cabins to all my friends I've used this company for years and never had any issues.
By Rebecca, Posted: 04/17/2019
Very nice cabin for the price!
By Stephanie Lares, Posted: 03/29/2019
Very private, clean and the hot tub was fun with a great view of trees all around. Stream nearby and only 10 minutes from downtown.
By Jerardo, Posted: 03/19/2019
Need to put some curtens up on windows.
By Richard, Posted: 02/19/2019
Great Stay, everything met or surpassed expectations. The only negative we experienced was the upstairs toilet required removal of the lid and manual movement of parts inside to get it to flush and fill with water. It needs a new inside toilet kit. It was a nuisance but not the end of the world. Other customers may be really upset by it so I would recommend repairing it.
By Melody, Posted: 02/11/2019
The cabin was n ice. We enjoyed our stay.
By Michael, Posted: 01/24/2019
Great time and cabin was just what we needed/wanted. We will definitely recommended to anyone coming that way. Convenient to all activities was a great plus easy simple and nice place to stay. Thanks for a wonderful time!!!
By Traci, Posted: 01/06/2019
Overall the cabin met our needs. Upon arrival there was not a snow shovel when Ruidoso just received fresh snow. There were several towels left outside covered in snow, beer bottles,etc. There were several towels still in the dryer and the TV remote was found under the couch. I called and a gentleman rushed out and brought us a snow shovel. The removal of trash was also a bit of a hassel since it was not on site. The hot tub was awesome after a long day on the slopes.
By Mike, Posted: 01/05/2019
We enjoyed the cabin. Located in a nice area. Family had great time in hot tub and watching the wild life.
By Megan, Posted: 12/25/2018
Staying in a cabin is a great experience. The positives are the secluded location, wood-burning fireplace and a kitchen. The cabin is spacious and very comfortable and has that mountain charm feel to it. There are some negatives such as the fact that the cabin was in need of some repairs and there wasn't firewood provided for the wood burning fireplace. The biggest negative is that this is expensive when you add in the management and associated fees. I've stayed in Four Star Motels for Less!
By Dave, Posted: 10/18/2018
Bear Paradise is a bit dated and there are several repairs that could be made to trim and furnishings in order to make it a nicer stay. I chose it because it is a two bedroom and I familiar with it. Some kitchen utensils need to be replaced (can opener, for example). Overall, however, the stay was acceptable and I will choose Hummingbird again when I return.

Enjoyed the hot tub and view from our cabin would highly recommend staying here for a relaxing vacation
By Kayla, Posted: 03/04/2018
Great views and fresh morning air on the decks were probably my favorite! Awesome location and close to everything. We had a great stay, I just wish the communication went more smoothly. I requested a late check in immediately after booking and did not receive a response. Upon the 3rd attempt everything was resolved but this was the morning of check out.
By Shelito, Posted: 02/05/2018
This cabin is a great place to stay and relax. Good size and comfortable. We had problems to control water’s temperature tough.
By Nadia, Posted: 12/11/2017
This cabin was clean and extremely spacious for our little family of 5. There were 3 decks and everything was Kaye’s our ready for our stay. Lots of towels for the hot tub and we really enjoyed our stay. The only down side was the cabin management service wasn’t giving us the right entry code. I accidentally erased our instructions as we were using them to get to the cabin and when I called to get them sent again it took a long time for them to respond. They kept giving us the wrong code, but finally the maintenance guy called us back and he was able to unlock the door remotely. After that our stay was excellent. There are no garbage disposal dumpsters in the unit we had to drive down the road but that wasn’t too bad. If you’re staying here when there’s snow it maybe challenging getting up that Hill I would suggest calling ahead and getting chains. It was right off the road but secluded at the same time. Highly recommend. We will be back.

Wonderful view, great hot tub, awesome washer and dryer, everything we needed to make a lil breakfast, scenery was incredible... peaceful, didn’t get to feed the deer but they were out there.. house was awesome..

Thank you for sharing your home with us! We appreciate it. The view is amazing as well as the atmosphere and friendly wildlife.
By Kelly, Posted: 11/13/2015
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.
By Dayna, Posted: 10/09/2015
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 !! ????
By Hector, Posted: 09/09/2015
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.

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.

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.
By Glen and Carmen, Posted: 07/21/2013
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.
