This is another authentic Ruidoso River Cabin. The cabin is located up the road from the river, and well worth the short walk to enjoy all the river provides! You can fish, as the Village does stock the river monthly. There is a hidden gem of a park once you cross the bridge to the left and meander on the river trail you will be upon it! Take a picnic lunch,or grill on the charcoal grills at the park (season permitting, check with office). The .25 mile river trail will also lead you to other more public picnic sites, several pavilions, a playground for the kids, and Ruidoso Visitors Center.
The cabin is located off our main street, and within walking distance to Cornerstone Bakery Cafe which is a Ruidoso Favorite place for great breakfasts and lunch. There are other restaurants within walking distance to suite your taste. Walk off your breakfast to our midtown district which is less than 1 mile up Sudderth.
Wind down and relax at this wonderfully comfortable cabin now with wireless internet. The cheery kitchen has everything you'll need to eat in. The backyard features a new hot-tub and is so peaceful, and romantic.
* Winter Snow Conditions may require 4wd or chains!
This cabin is pet friendly. Pets are welcomed upon approval. There is a $25.00 pet fee per pet,

I met with Angie to get the paperwork and keys. She was very helpful and gave me some good tips for breakfast and accessing the river.
Cute little cabin, great for dogs and their humans! It was actually very close to the Rio Ruidoso and downtown Ruidoso. The hot tub was a great feature. The cabin itself was in good condition and very neat.

Every time we have stayed we have met the staff upon check-in. They have always been very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home.
I can't imagine a more perfect cabin for my wife and I. Small with all the comforts of home without the 100 degree temps. This was the 4th time staying in this cabin and we will return!

Cute little cabin, even better in person. Very clean, comfortable bed, plenty of towels and fenced in yard which is awesome if you travel with dogs like we did. You can easily walk into town or down to the river walk. Hot tub and grill outback was the icing on the cake.

Great location - close enough to walk to the center of town, but out of the way enough to feel like a retreat from it all. Hot tub was a treat. Plenty of towels for multiple soaks every day. Kitchen had everything we needed. Charming, sweet, rustic decor. Quite spacious and inviting. Lots of comfy touches like plush extra throws and blankets. We slept better than we have in months.

Letter from the Owner

My husband and I are both Lubbock natives now in our 70s and believe it or not, wed never been to Ruidoso until a friend in Lubbock told me about a Condo she had bought as a rental property here. Since we wanted to escape the Lubbock heat, we asked to use her condo, came for the first time ever in May of 2018, fell in love with Ruidoso, River Cabin and we closed on this cabin in June 2018.
Several years ago, wonderful couple had done so much to this cabin to make it larger and add some great comforts for you. However, by the time we bought the cabin things had been removed by the previous owner. So, our first challenge was to make this 1940s cabin feels like a cabin we would want to visit, and youd be comfortable staying in. We tried to add a few things from the past (40s & 50s) and be sure you have everything you need for a weekend or week-long stay. We also wanted to add and keep the things that will remind you that you are in a cabin where deer could be in the front yard when you leave the gate open.
Having two small fur babies when we first saw this cabin, we were excited to see the fully fenced front and back yards. So, our fur babies can be in both the front yard when we have coffee on the front porch in the morning and in the back with us when we grill outside or as we enjoy the hot tub year-round.
So, please make yourself comfortable and enjoy your stay at River Cabin. We would love it if you would please leave a review about your stay on Cozy Cabins web page, Facebook and Google as your opinion and feedback is really important to us.
Have lots of fun in Ruidoso
and enjoy River Cabin,

Beautiful location surrounded by pine trees and just a short walk from the river. We loved the hot tub. Great kitchen and propane grill for those who want to cook. Highly recommend getting a few slices of pie from nearby Cornerstone bakery and enjoying them down by the river. We appreciated that the house was stocked with many clean towels for after the hot tub and cozy blankets for lounging on the couch and watching movies at night.
