Overall, we had a great time at this home. It was comfortable inside and very well stocked with kitchen items, bed/bath linens, etc. There are lots of friendly deer in the area and they come right up to the houses, which is neat for kids to get to see. The WiFi and cable worked great, making it convenient for entertaining during down times. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen was there, and there is a gas grill outside. A few things that aren't readily available by the photos and listing details. 1) the neighbors are REALLY close and you can easily hear their conversations and they can hear yours. 2) the home is listed for sale and has some deferred maintenance issues, and we suspect they aren't fixing things up because they are selling the place. rotting deck boards, non-working hot tub, etc. 3) when we reported concerns (hot tub not working) it took emails and multiple calls and multiple visits to get someone to respond and fix it. They eventually did, but it took 3 days of our trip to get things done. 4) the key check-in/out descriptions aren't great, and took us a lot of time to figure out where it is and how to access it. When you park, you actually walk around the side of the house behind the garage, up to the 2nd floor patio and around the side of that to a sliding glass door, where the key is fastened to a lock box on the wall, at eye level. NOTHING like was described in the check-in email. And, anyone staying there needs to be very comfortable navigating stairs to access the property. Despite all this, we made the best of it and had a great time. Not a blocker to booking, but thought it would be fair to point these things out for folks who don't get this info on the listing.

Don’t judge by the outside of this home. The inside is gorgeous. It is beautifully decorated and very homey. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need in the way of pots, pans, utensils, and dishes. The bedroom upstairs is huge with a back patio and hot tub and a balcony out front. There is a huge deck in front off the living room dining room area with a large table and lots of chairs. The deer come right up to the house. The location is amazing if you like quiet and like to commune with nature. It is surrounded by forest and there is a beautiful little lake close by. We went on several hikes there. My only negative comment would be that the small front balcony upstairs and the big deck out front is badly in need of attention. The paint is peeling badly and there are boards that need replaced. The balcony did not feel safe. However, the big deck is still very serviceable.

Sunset cabin was the greatest! It was our 35th Wedding Anniversary and we enjoyed it very much. The master bedroom was a complete surprise, very nice.

The cabin and the cleanliness was perfect. Pleasantly surprised we have used several Vrbo’s but never had one as clean and pleasant as the stay we had.

The gorgeous setting, beautiful master suite and the sizable deck made this a cabin we thoroughly enjoyed. Its close proximity to Alto Lake made it the perfect retreat for us. The kitchen was well stocked with the things you may need if you’re planning to cook while you are there. We loved the cabin, the setting and the location and would recommend it to any others who enjoy the quiet beauty of the Alto area.

We are sadly out of the cabin. Thank you for such a lovely cabin. The hot tub will not work though. This is a biggest part of the reason I picked this cabin. That and the location. I was keen on finding a cabin with a hot tub. It only worked the first night. The jets kept blowing the breaker. We did discover if you do not use the jets at least the heat part continues. We discovered that our last night. I hope the next people that are staying tonight are not as keen on a functional hot tub as I. My husband and I just finished a fundraiser that was back breaking work the day before we came. A fundraiser we put on every year for local families with cancer children. Knowing how sore we would be is the reason the hot tub was important this stay. Last year we came to Ruidoso just after and decided a cabin with a hot tub would be in order this year. The fundraiser however is a labor of love and the cabin was everything else I had hoped for. Even the highway did not bother me as much as I thought it would. I just worry about your next renters that they too will not be dissapointed. Thank you again. Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android

Sunset Cabin was a great home away from home. It exceeded our expectations for cleanliness and comfort. Hummingbird Cabins were great hosts, and answered all of our questions and made sure that we could check in early, too. All of the necessary supplies for cooking and cleaning were available and we enjoyed the time to relax and unwind in a very beautiful setting. The visits from deer and other wildlife in the morning and evening were wonderful.

The house was exactly what we needed after long days of adventuring! The rooms had comfortable beds, extra blankets, dressers. Bathrooms were well-stocked, too. Kitchen had all needed items. The master suite (and hot tub) was a nice retreat. Grill worked well, and many deer hung out in backyard. Overall, we had a wonderful visit and enjoyed the house and it's location very much. Thank you!

Sunset Cabin was amazing, everything from the location to the cabin itself was awesome. We definitely will be back. This review is from airbnb

We absolutely loved the cabin. This was our second time in this cabin. The cabin was very well kept up with and appeared to be clean. The only thing that could have improved was the smell. It had a little bit of on odor to it.

This cabin was just enough for my family and me. It was in a good location and had good views. We were able to see a wild horse!

We come to Ruidoso several times a year. This has been our favorite cabin to stay in. We love the decor and space. We have 3 children and this cabin provided us with the space we needed. The hot tub and decks were great for early morning coffee and night soaks. The decks were great for the kids to feed. We will definitely be renting this cabin again. Thanks.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Cabin in Ruidoso. Beautiful views, quiet area, comfy beds and crackling fireplaces. Would stay here again.

Absolutely the perfect cabin! I loved the upstairs loft and waking up to have coffee on the deck and watch the deer wonder by. We stayed at sunset cabin and it was amazing every step we took outside or on a balcony was like a breathe of fresh air. Beautiful scenery. We took my dad for his 50th birthday and he did not want to come back home to Texas haha. Thank you so much we will be returning in the near future.

We had a great time staying in the sunset cabin. Kids loved climbing the “mountain” out back and seeing the deer. Will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Sunset Cabin in Alto, it was very nice and clean large deck, lots of deer if you put out some corn. Very nice and hot, hot tube, master bed room was very large. Received the deposit back in full in two weeks, Very well managed by Hummingbird. Thanks....

Had a great time with my family at Sunset Cabin. Now we discovered during our stay that there was no WiFi. A Hummingbird crew did come out quickly, but were unable to fix it. They informed us that this was a new rental property and the owners had not converted their old internet service yet. Also, there were no matches in the cabin. Since the cabin has 2 fireplaces, I thought that was unusual. Maybe it was a liability issue. Otherwise had a great time. Lots of deer to look at!
