This cottage is everything and more you could ever want from a cabin in the woods. Honestly, it felt like a movie set. Just so perfect.

Our family needed a place for 6- my parents, two kids 15/7 and my husband and me. We also needed a house with a chimney Santa could come down. We had a great Christmas stay and all five days we were comfortable between the little cabin and ours allowing for my parents to have their own space. The cabin was warm, clean, kitchen was appointed with what we needed to cook big meals each day. We loved the grill and back porch. Best of all Santa found us!

If you’re looking for a large property with nice scenery to spread out this is it. Extremely secluded in the upper canyon with wonderful and rich history all over while being minutes from town. Having the big cabin and small cabin is a great bonus and value. The updates are fresh and modern but I assure you none of the old school charm and feel disappeared as a result. There is a wood burning fireplace in the main cabin living room but a nice surprise to also have a gas burning fireplace/stove in each cabin for those that prefer convenience over working a wood burning fire. Everything you could need in the kitchen to make your meals and a lot of neat games to use as well. We really enjoyed our time and can’t wait to come back. Thanks for having us!

This cabin is set back away from the main flow of traffic. It is quiet and beautiful with with burbling of the river as background sounds. Wildlife every morning. So wonderful

Rustic location, peaceful and secluded. Perfect location to unplug and reset! We will be making this a return trip.

The cabin was nice with the three bedrooms and two baths. The family members who stayed there had privacy and plenty of room. The covered and enclosed patio was great for grilling and eating and playing games in the fresh air. Having the river right out the back door was a plus. The Little House was perfect for my wife and I. It is just the right size for a couple. Overall, a great experience.

We arrived at the cabin after dark and even with the road conditions, the directions were easy to follow. The cabins were cozy and nicely appointed. We had everything we needed including gorgeous scenery and a quiet, secluded location. I've already recommended this listing to others.

“THE BEST, clean and equipped.”
By Carrie, Posted: 10/29/2020
This cabin Had excellent heating and the best shower !! The guest bedroom desperately needs a new mattress. Loved the screened in porch. Deer, birds and the river!!
By John, Posted: 09/19/2020
We had a very relaxing and quiet stay. Loved the older ambience of the cabin.
By Natalia, Posted: 09/13/2020
The views and outdoor property is gorgeous. We had no issues with any of the neighbors. Hummingbird was good at communicating. The living room furniture was uncomfortable. The kitchen had all of the basics covered which was great.
By Antoinette, Posted: 09/05/2020
Great place for R&R
By Nick, Posted: 08/25/2020
If you want a cabin in the mountains to yourself, this is a great place. It has all the basics you would need. Its a real cabin that has been in use for many decades, so the only negative is if you have allergies to dust mites.
*Note from HBC: Rainbow Oaks sits in the oldest part of Upper Canyon here in Ruidoso. It's an original cabin to the area and will have some dust because of location.
By David, Posted: 08/20/2020
What a lovely family property. Secluded despite not being so, within earshot of the Ruidoso River (which only by western standards would be called a river... back east it would be a small stream at best) with it's babbling watercourse that succeeds entirely in washing the tensions of daily life away. The cabin is a suitably updated traditional backwoods stone cabin with a small but well equipped kitchen. We want to return with family so we can take the little cabin... a gem in and of itself. I can imagine only those seeking absolute isolation would not find this place delightful.

Great and peaceful
By Carlton, Posted: 03/15/2020
Had a wonderful experience. One issue I would like to bring up. Once you've checked in (typing code in padlock) the door opens just fine but when you leave in and out to walk around property or shop in town. You are able to UNLOCK door without typing code in , by only pressing the schlage button . Thankfully we had no problems but I feel like this should be made aware a.s.a.p before the next occupants. Other than that. Our stay was EXACTLY What our family needed.

Wonderful cabin for a secluded peaceful getaway.

I can not brag enough about this property! It was absolutely memorable and somethings we will never forget, Y'all thought of everything and then some.Thank you so very much .
By Julia, Posted: 09/09/2019
What amazing weeking at Rainbow Oak cabin.You can just feel all the love ,all the memories and all the history in and around the cabin.Loved the family photos and reading about the Scotch Lion. The woods around the cabin were teeming with wildlife activity the deer stopped by every morning to feast on the apples from the tree,the chipmunks and squirrels were busy and the birds as well. A black bear even sauntered along the river one evening! Highlight of the week for sure! She screened in porch was definitely a favorite spot for us. Thank you for sharing the cabin. I can;t wait to return very soon.

The best vacation very relaxing.

With a family of five boys and myself, we knew we needed room for 'boys to be boys' and this home delivered 10X over. There is so much space outside to explore and play but still be within eye/ear shot. The river was complete bonus...I sat and read for a whole 2 hours uninterrupted enjoying the sounds of the forest. The little house was perfect for my teenager to be away from the youngsters. Cannot wait to see this gem in the summer.
