A good place to stay for a couple or a small family. The Jacuzzi was really nice with a great view of the forest. Also the porch seating is perfect for having breakfast outside. The only thing I would recommend is getting there during the day if possible. Unfortunately I got there during the night and it was a bit difficult finding the cabin. Also would recommend a vehicle that is good it steep hill as the way up and down is not paved. Besides that the cabin itself and everything in it is perfect.

We really enjoyed our stay. Cabin was impeccably clean, well furnished and we loved the hot tub. Note the information they provide on the road up to the cabin is real. 4x4 highly recommended if any kind of weather.

Great place for our anniversary trip! They provided everything we needed. The livingroom TV was nice and large and had streaming services already set up. WiFi was strong, master bed was very comfortable, hot tub was easy to use and in working order, couch was comfortable, and outdoor area was lovely. Windows provided nice natural light, but the black curtains have nice privacy at night. Notes: they aren’t kidding about four-wheel drive. Definitely bring a car that can get up slick & steep gravel road 365 days a year. They also note that sounds from this cabin travels far and request to keep noise down; so if you have a rowdy crew this may not be the best fit. Cabins are closer together than we thought, but didn’t provide a problem for us.

We really enjoyed our stay at Charlie Cabin and would definitely like to come back some time! The cabin was very cozy and the location of the property is amazing. A trail leading directly from the property across from our cabin leads immediately into the forest, with access to trails, hiking wildlife, and even the ruins of an old mine! The location is great for visiting Ruidoso (~5-10 min drive, and especially if you are skiing at Ski Apache. The Ruidoso winter park snow tubing area is also only about 5 minutes or less away from the cabin. Communications with the Hummingbird Cabins Staff was great, and I received rapid replies for all matters I contacted them about, including modification of our reservation and when I requested information about the kitchen supplies. The one thing I would advise for travelers staying more than a couple days is to bring additional toilet paper and soap, as the management's policy does not include replacing these items during longer stays. Also, while there is adequate parking, the driveway up to the cabins is very steep and made of gravel, and some cars may not be able to make it up, even in good weather. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend staying here.

We had the best time at Charlie cabin and will definitely be back! The location is close to Ruidoso and Alto, but you still feel like you're getting away from the hustle and bustle.

The cabin was very clean and relaxing.

Charlie’s Cabin was clean, well stocked and comfy. The deck is large and has beautiful views. The hot tub was clean and wonderful. We had four wheel drive, but another renter didn’t and only made it up the road successfully in reverse (front wheel drive). I’ve been vacationing off and on in Ruidoso for my whole 51 years of life and Charlie’s Cabin is one of the best for off the beaten path locations, higher elevation for cool nights and a great sit back and relax outdoor experience. We’ll be back!

The cabin was very cozy! Small, but comfortable for just a couple. The porch and hot tub were a nice addition to our stay. Highly recommend taking a vehicle with 4wd as the driveway is very steep. Overall we really enjoyed our time here!

All I can say is hot tub on the side of a mountain surrounded by trees and stars. The inside space was very cute and quaint. It is a tiny home vibe, mostly comfortable with a wonderful patio and view. We drove the 10 minutes into town (Ruidoso) once for groceries, hiked, and went horseback riding. Otherwise, we didn't leave the hot tub. Highly recommend and will be back.

A lot of great things about this cabin! This is a really cute cabin: well-decorated, great deck, homey, and fun with great amenities. The amenities are even better than described, with the fully stocked kitchen cookery and utensils, a great TV, DVD Player (that was not mentioned), and multiple streaming services available for guest use, and awesomely comfy blankets throughout the house (great for a winter getaway.) The very large hot tub, though not shaded during the day, is amazing to experience under the stars any time of year. The cabin is smaller than it looks from the pictures, but every inch is well used. It is cozy, and perfect for 2. The property managers were very quick to respond to all our questions and were very helpful.

We needed this getaway more than ever...and this cabin was perfect! Everything we could think of was literally provided in the cabin, the scenery was the best. The hot tub cherry on top! ? We will definitely be back! My husband forgot his phone after check out, we called maintenance and Daniel was friendly and quick to help by opening up the cabin. We appreciate you. Thank you for the great hospitality! Arvizu familia-Las Cruces NM

Great place to get away to. Cabin was quaint and cozy, very clean, supplied with all cooking utensils and kitchen necessities. The location is great with being close to town, lakes, trails, and excursions. Enjoyed the hummingbirds from the porch.

Charlie Cabin was perfect for our little getaway! We will definitely be coming back!
By Todd, Posted: 06/18/2019
Charlie Cabin.....The Bad: Toilet needs float valve repaired in order to work properly. TV/ satellite signal needs attention. Gravel road is STEEP, with little traction. Other guests thought so too. The Good: Cabin was clean and quiet. View was great. Hummingbird Rentals were good to work with.

Great place to stay with a nice quiet view.
By Christine, Posted: 06/11/2019
We wish we would have had a better idea of the steepness of the driveway as we felt a little uneasy about it. So glad we weren't higher. I think the coffee maker could use a really good vinegar cleaning too. However, everything else was perfect! We enjoyed our stay so much. It was the perfect getaway to relax. We loved the cabin, and the quaint size. The hot tub was nice. I really enjoyed chatting with David, a few cabins over. It was really nice to sit on the porch during the afternoon rainstorm. I especially enjoyed that! We also LOVED the mattress. Slept SO well! Curious what brand it was...
By Aaron, Posted: 03/29/2019
Best getaway so far!! Cozy cabin and awesome view!! Completely equipped kitchen. They have everything. No need for Extra towel, and blankets. We were very impressed! Very recommended!

It was a wonderful two days, New Mexico is just so pretty and our cabin made it even more perfect! Great location and the view from the porch is gorgeous!

2nd time to stay in Charlie cabin. Wonderful for a retired couple. We will do it again, hopefully next year!
By Briana, Posted: 02/25/2018
Cute place and great location if you want to be near Ski Apache! The hot tub at the Charlie Cabin made it 10x better with how chilly it is during winter nights. Perfect for 2 or 3 people
By Samantha, Posted: 01/14/2018
Great location if you’re planning to be close to Ski Apache. House was clean and well stocked with the essentials. We loved the hot tub! Overall we were pleased. We got engaged on our trip here!
By Franz, Posted: 12/26/2017
Cute but very small. It has neighbors all around. Personally we enjoy more open space. We checked in very last minute for Christmas so our price was too high for the value.
By Paul, Posted: 12/17/2017
Fantastic view! Very close to ski apache and downtown Ruidoso. But far enough away to really enjoy the quiet.
By Cindi, Posted: 09/30/2017
We loved our stay at Charlie Cabin. It was a perfect location to base from for our vacation, so quiet and peaceful. The cabin is beautiful and felt homey. Our host was responsive to our questions before and during our visit, and very accommodating. It was a great getaway from our busy lives. Thanks again, and we will be back!
By Trent and Andrea, Posted: 09/11/2017
Our stay was exactly what the both of us needed. Very relaxing, beautiful atmosphere, and gorgeous weather. We’ll definitely be back!
By Pam, Posted: 08/28/2017
Beautiful experience in cozy cabin. It was very clean, adequate and delightful for us as a couple. I would highly recommend it to another couple.
By John, Posted: 08/14/2017
We loved the quiet scenic and coziness of the cabin. The cabin was very clean. Great experience overall. I would suggest the dumpster area be cleaned as there was some trash outside Also maybe add another chair in the living area.
By Michelle, Posted: 08/05/2017
Overall pleased- Happy with views and cleanliness of cabin. Close enough to town and attractions but still have feel of open outdoors- Cabin on snug side but doable- Really only complaint would have to be the parking area for the cabin - as we were in double cab long bed 4x4 truck .parking was more adequate for a compact vehicle. Turning around was a bit of a trick to avoid edge of drop off . And parking spot being open to road in for other chains and on a curve. Definitely would want 4x4 but on a smaller scale - can't emphasize enough the tight parking area. Loved our stay
By Michelle, Posted: 05/26/2017
We always use hummingbird cabins when we stay in Ruidoso. We recently booked a stay at one of the cabins and when we got there we discovered that it was inaccessible for us as it was at the top of a mountain with a loose gravel road up. There was no information given on the road conditions prior to our stay. However hummingbird cabins was more than happy to accommodate and move us to another cabin that was easier to get to in my car... and that was a much appreciated gesture and that's why we only use hummingbird cabins when we stay in Ruidoso. Thank you!

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.
By Barry & Jackie, Posted: 05/27/2016
