Our visit was very eventful, with a wind advisory that resulted in a power outage and, later the same day, a wildfire and evacuations in the area. Before that, our stay was peaceful, and everything in the cabin was as expected. Cozy Cabins offered us a refund of our remaining nights if we wanted to go ahead and leave, and the refund shows in process. They had no control over situation, but we couldn't have asked for a better handling if it.

We had an enjoyable, relaxing stay! Nice, quiet getaway, close enough to town to go when we wanted, but far enough away it was quiet. Would recommend.

Riversounds Retreat was fantastic! Quiet and plenty of room for our family of 7 and we did not even use the room and bathroom downstairs! Wonderful place for a large group to stay and enjoy Ruidoso! Will be using Cozy Cabins Rentals again in the future!

Very nice place in a nice area. Its a big cabin with lots of space for everyone. We enjoyed watching deer at the neighbors house. If you have a few people that want to get together, this is a good, clean place. We could hear the river from the patio from the other side of the road.
