Although the property was a bit smaller than expected, the seclusion was great! High on the mountain, away from noise and lights of town. Due to fires near town the management office was without internet and power, but they never missed a beat. Provided updates via text message and check in was seamless.

Overall we were happy with our stay at Honey Bear Cabin. The property was clean and well maintained. It was a little older than we expected but that added to the charm. Deer came right up to the cabin which was awesome, it was in a great location as well.

The Honey Bear cabin by Cozy Cabins was exactly as described! It was so clean, so comfortable, and fit our family of three perfectly. The hot tub was easy to operate and incredibly relaxing. The beds were comfy, the couch was comfy, and the fridge was so so cute! Checking in was simple as well as checking out. We hope to visit again sometime in the future!

This is a great cabin with a beautiful location. The large master bedroom with attached bath was even better than the pictures. The location is in a neighborhood but there is a bit of space between houses. The back deck and hot tub offer a beautiful view of the canyon. Will definitely keep this cabin in mind for next trip!

Welcome to Enchanted New Mexico and Ruidosos Honey Bear Cabin! I hope you enjoy your stay at my little perch on top of The Brady and Upper Canyon. This cabin has been a wonderful project over the years as Ive had this cabin since 2003. At that time, it was only a one bedroom. In 2008 I added the Master bedroom. Honey Bear was built in 1959. I know this because years ago when I took off and replaced all the exterior siding, I found a 1959 penny laying between the walls. I guess some framer back then wanted it to be like a time capsule.
With that said Honey Bear has been with Cozy Cabins management since 2016. Each year Ive tried to make my cabin nicer with fixes and upgrades. My first addition was the Bull Frog hot tub on the back deck. Last year I added new wood siding to the living room along with an extra TV to the master bedroom and internet service. This year I have added a new laminate flooring and a new Red Retro Fridge. Hopefully soon I can add a half over head cover for the back deck and later adding a mini split AC unit.
If you like a to watch the early morning sun come up, Honey Bear offers a great sunrise in the summer months along with a wonderful view over the Brady Canyon. One of the coolest things I personally enjoy is on a clear night when the moons not out, is to set in the hot tub and turn off all the lights in the cabin and stare at the stars and the milky way, its like going to
an observatory and watching stars a millions and millions miles away, just a relaxing step away from heaven.
Also. If you like taking nice walks during the day theres a trail I enjoy thats about a half mile long through the upper south side of the upper canyon. Makes you feel like youre alone in the forest miles away from civilization. Ive walked this trail and at times have seen lots of Deer along with Wild Turkey. On occasion Ive seen a bear or two passes by also.
Honey Bear Cabin is small romantic cabin that is a great get away from it all. If you are needing to have a family get together and need more rooms the cabin next door (Mountain Hideaway) Is available through Cozy Cabins management. Some guests will book both cabins and that is great! Be sure if you are staying in the winter months to have 4-wheel drive or have chains available as some of the roads up here are steep. Please be sure to leave a review on Cozy Cabins web page, Facebook and google as your opinion and feedback is especially important.

Had a great and relaxing weekend at the Honey Bear Cabin with my family! The hot tub was dirty upon arrival however once it was brought to the property managers attention, there was a maintenance man at the cabin within an hour or so! Our favorite part ended up being the hot tub surrounded by snow! It is a quaint and cozy cabin. Perfect for 4! We would definitely stay there again!

This place was nice for a last minute weekend getaway. Its roomy for 3-4 people. Kitchen is small but It was no problem for us. We booked this place for the hot tub but unfortunately it only worked for us one night and they are refunding for the amenity. There is a grocery store right down the hill that was convenient for us too!
Manager's Note: the hot tub was repaired 10/1/20 when part arrived. It is fully functional. We are so sorry Deandra could not use both nights.

Honey Bear cabin was a nice little place for 4 people or less to stay. We liked being close to the town yet not in it. We enjoyed having deer walk by as we had breakfast on the deck.

Best booking and rental staff around.
Honey Bear #2 was quite the surprise. It surpassed all expectations by a mile. And the journey up the mountain to the cabin was a real shocker. Had no idea I'd be winding up the mountain to a dead end to find our cabin near the highest points around. It was exactly what we needed to get away from it all. Cozy, relaxing, excited, with a smile on my face from the time we arrived and made our return to "real life". A must if I say so myself.
