Everyone in office is super friendly & helpful! Felt very comfortable asking for anything.
The Stones Thoreau was absolutely amazing! We enjoyed every minute and didnt wont to leave! Already planning our next trip:)
This incredible place was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the deck, babbling river & all the sightings of deer, elk & birds. The cabin/home had all we needed and very clean plus lots of areas that were useful and private. Beds were so comfortable. Easy to pull in to come & go without stairs.
Everything was super clean!

This was a great place for the tow kids and us to stay. It lies right next to a stream and the hot tub was "chillin" according to my six year old! Everything is within a couple minutes drive and was the perfect location for us. we passed the driveway a couple times before we found the turn in so look out for it! its the dirt drive next to the 2 story house! I look foward to looking at other cabins that Cozy Cabins has to offer, but would 100% stay at this cabin again.

Very clean, great aesthetic and having the river run right behind the property was the main selling point. What a relaxing view while drinking your morning coffee or sitting in the hot tub!

Office staff were very nice and offered to accommodate our schedule.
This was by far our most memorable stay in Ruidoso all because of the rental experience with Cozy Cabins and the wonderful property and its amenities. Im already looking at a calendar to book our next stay.

A Stone's Thoreau was much better than advertised. The sound of the Rio Ruidoso is wonderful and relaxing. The hot tub was also nice on cool nights. The inside is very nice and clean; love the way you can look out the dining room window and see the Rio Ruidoso and the fall scenery -- we ate all of our meals there as a family. Master bedroom had plenty of room and closet space; both bathrooms were nice. Kitchen very nice; all sheets and towels were good. TV and internet worked great. Just right for four or five people. You can be on Meachem in like 2 minutes; and no steep hills to worry about. Figuring out which driveway it is was a little tricky the first time, but you can't beat this place. We'll definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful time at A Stone's Thoreau. It was just as beautiful and peaceful as it appeared online. The deck is AWESOME, we enjoyed spending most of out time out there. We have visited Ruidoso several times but this was by far our favorite place and we will be returning.

This place is much better in person. The living areas are very spacious, plenty of tables and chairs to sit and enjoy. The outdoor backyard patio is the gem of the property. Jacuzzi, large patio, chairs, all looking over the creek. We will be back for sure.

This is a great property! Plenty of space for a family to spread out and not be on top of each other! We enjoyed hours of watching the snow fall, putting puzzles together, and spending time with one another! We will book again!

I spoke with Jeremy while we were online looking at properties and he was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable with quick answers to our questions.
We definitely enjoyed our stay, have already recommended to some family and friends and are hopeful we will join them soon to enjoy again.
I would suggest two things overall:
1. Allow your clients to leave the keys to the property in the property upon check-out. Naming a specific location where the keys should be left would make it more convenient and let your clients be on their way faster to their next destination.
2. Allow for either a discount OR no charge late check-out for your clients who arrive after hours (i.e.: clients who arrive at the property after 7 or 8 p.m. be allowed to check out at 11 a.m. vs. 10 a.m. at no additional cost).
Thank You for offering such a lovely, clean and well stocked property to stay in. We left missing it as we drove away and are excited to visit again in the future!

Welcome to our little bit of Heaven. We pray that you enjoy your time here as much as we do. We have come to Ruidoso every year to celebrate our anniversary for more years than we can count. Our favorite place to stay became A Stones Thoreau. We have spent so much time walking along the river and pathways just talking and enjoying the peacefulness that is Ruidoso. We never imagined in our wildest dreams that God would enable us to now own it. It is with gratitude in our hearts that we now share it with you.
Some of our favorite ways to enjoy the cabin are: early morning coffee or tea on the porch, visiting with the forest animals that love to wander by; movie watching with windows open and the sound of rain coming down; playing family games by the fire; long talks in the hot tub; dinner on the porch looking up at the stars, and a peaceful nights sleep listening to the river.
No matter the season, we hope that you enjoy the many restaurants, hiking trails, skiing and tubing, craft/food fairs and store that the beautiful village of Ruidoso has to offer.
We hope that you enjoy your stay in our mountain home and make memories that will last forever.
