‘Free from disturbance’ Rainbow Oaks is a quiet haven where time and schedules lose all meaning.  Come relax back in time, so you can return to your future with a tranquil stay.  Tucked away in the deep forest of the Upper Canyon in Ruidoso on 3 acres is Rainbow Oaks: the oldest cabin on the Ruidoso River.  If you love seclusion, history, abundant wild life and a bubbling river, this is the place for you. The property has a spacious yard and swing perfect for children and young at heart adults. Giant rocks for climbing are sprinkled around the property along with hill sides for exploring and a stream to wade. Large picnic table in the yard is wonderful for outdoor dining.  There is also a patio with chairs for additional outdoor enjoyment and a screened in front porch facing the river for hours of relaxation.  Often deer, elk, bear, turkey and wild horses will wander by as you relax on the porch.  Night time brings a new wonder: stars galore and our galaxy, the Milky Way are visible after dark thirty.  Be sure to bring your four-legged family members as well, as the cabin is K9 friendly!

Rainbow Oaks was built in 1915 by the Honorable Judge Medler as a summer retreat from the heat in Las Cruces NM.  The name, Rainbow Oaks is for the over 200+ year old Oak tree which is still on the property. The main cabin is one level featuring wood burning fireplace with three bedrooms and two baths including an antique claw foot tub.  The old house has been completely renovated. The guest house is one bedroom with kitchen and bathroom separate from the main house. It is perfect for grandparents traveling with family.  Cell service is limited in the Upper Canyon, therefore, we provide WIFI for your phones functionality. This property DOES NOT have air conditioning for summer months, but generally is 15 degrees cooler than the rest of Ruidoso and evenings are very comfortable.

Bedding: 3 Queen, 1 Twin

Please note: This home is K9 friendly and we do require a $50.00 (plus tax) pet fee per pet that will need to be requested. Please contact us if you are bringing your K-9 so that it can be coordinated correctly.

Ruidoso, Alto, and surrounding areas: Submerse yourself within the towering pines of Lincoln County and watch local wildlife such as elk, deer, wild horses, turkey, birds and more in their natural habitats.
