Our Property

Welcome Bear
One of many official greeters

What do you picture when you imagine a mountain vacation?
Situated on over five acres of ponderosa pine studded land in the Upper Canyon, Dan Dee’s thirteen cabins provide the casual comfort reminiscent of Ruidoso’s earlier, simpler times.

Pesky critters – gnats, mosquitoes, ants, spiders - are a fact of life, but we do our best to keep our cabins free of them.
The seasons create starkly different scenery and conditions, and mountain weather can change in no time at all.

Winter Afternon
A winter afternoon
It is advisable to carry tire chains in the winter, perhaps an umbrella for the summer monsoons, and it’s always a good idea to use a flashlight when out walking after dark.
No matter what time of year, it is VERY important to be FIREWISE! Smoking, barbeques, and fireplaces all must be managed properly.
