Come on up and enjoy the view of Sierra Blanca and surrounding peaks. With many additional activities nearby such as hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, zip-lining, shopping, and more, the Sierra Vista Heights Cabin makes the perfect summer getaway!
The Sierra Vista Heights Cabin is located on the top of a mountain ridge on a cul-de-sac next to the Lincoln National Forest, giving it a secluded feel, yet it is just minutes from the Ruidoso shops and only 17 miles from Ski Apache. Perfect for one or two couples, or a small family. Enjoy a meal or your morning coffee as you view the sunrise on the peaks close to Sierra Blanca or watch the sunset behind Sierra Blanca at the end of a day of skiing. Shopping in the quaint Ruidoso shops is just 4-5 minutes away by car. The Cabin is a great place to just relax and enjoy the view from the deck!
Inside, the cabin has two living areas with paneling and wood trim throughout. The large living room has a wood-burning stove, sofa, the main dining table, and two-day beds. The adjoining den has two rocker/recliners, a small sofa, a 50-inch Smart TV with provided access to Hulu and Netflix, other apps, (including networks and news apps), and a DVD player with stereo/surround sound! In addition, please note that while we do provide internet access, we do not currently offer cable TV. Families enjoy this layout -- the adults can chat around the dinner table (in the living room) or on the deck while the kids play games or watch TV or a movie in the den.
Bedrooms: The large master bedroom with a king-size bed has a picture window with views of Sierra Blanca and a door to the deck. The cozy second bedroom with a queen bed has built-in closets and drawers, and 32" Smart TV with provided access to Hulu and Netflix as well as other apps. The kids' size third bedroom has a double bed with built-in closets and cabinets that kids enjoy putting their toys in. Please note that the two back bedrooms, bath, and den are in a quaint mobile home with high-quality wall and ceiling paneling and built-ins! Note also that the way the rooms are arranged you need to walk through the kids' bedroom (or the master) to access the second bedroom. (Please see video tour for more interior pictures.)
If you're looking for a fancy condo or 'upscale' house, please select another listing. The Sierra Vista Heights Cabin is a clean, well-maintained, and tobacco-free mountain-top cabin that's 5 feet from the Lincoln National Forest, has a great view and is just minutes from the Ruidoso shops and 17 miles from Ski Apache. If you're a couple or a small family (sleeps 5 adults, up to 6 total) looking for a mountain cabin for a price that's little more than a hotel, you've found your vacation home!
In addition, please note that we do not accept international reservations and must be at least 25 years old to rent.
Notes: During winter months, chains or All-Wheel or 4-WD is highly recommended and may be necessary to access the Cabin if the roads are snow-covered or icy! During the summer, given the very dry climate during much of the hot weather, we have opted for evaporative cooling.
5ft away from the Lincoln National Forest!
We have a family of deer who visit the Cabin regularly. They enjoy bread, corn, fruits and vegetables! Please see the pictures.

We loved our stay at this cabin, very cozy, amazing view, everything that we need it was there, for coking, towels, blankets, everything clean. A lot of space. The owner was very nice and He help us with everything on time since we booked 1 day before our trip. We will be back next year for sure.
We had a 5 star experience at this cabin. We enjoyed the view and close proximity to the Lincoln national forest. Be sure to bring feed for the deer because they are at the cabin daily ready to eat from your hand. We had everything we needed...pots and pans, dishes, A+ wifi, Tv with blu ray player and surround sound, BBQ pit with gas. I was worried about the swamp cooler in July but it was not an issue. We stayed cool and comfortable. There is a keurig if you want to bring k-cups (also a standard coffee pot). We had great communication with the owner from start to finish. They give good advice and instructions for your stay. We will book this property again, thank you!
If you demand 5-star accomodation, this is not it. If you are looking for a nice, clean and cozy place to hang out with friends and/ or family, this is it! Incredible view from deck! Lots of wild life to see. Deer eating from your hands, wild horses. Hummingbirds!!! Great hiking right their. Though it has a pretty secluded feel, it is minutes from all the fun things Ruidoso offers. As long as your expectations are aligned, I highly recommend this place. Also, the owner is extremely nice and very responsive and accommodating!!!!
The cabin was clean and comfortable. We liked the convenience of a kitchen.
Property manager was quick to reply to every question I had. Will stay again. The property is on the older side and in need of a few repairs but we still enjoyed our stay.
This cabin is in the perfect location. You are literally on the edge of the forest. The deer come right up to the deck, the humming birds visit hourly and you can watch the cooper hawks sailing by. You can hike right from the property. The deck is cover so you can watch the rain an lightning show. The inside is comfortable and cozy supplied with all you need. Really enjoyed your spot so thank you for sharing with us!
We totally enjoyed our stay at the Sierra Vista Heights cabin. We loved sitting on the deck with our morning coffee and afternoon drinks. The sights -- beautiful mountains, green forest, hummingbird show and regular visits from the deer were unforgettable. The sounds of those buzzing, chirping hummingbirds kept our attention. The smell of the fir/birch/pine was intoxicating. The cabin met our expectations; we were very comfortable. Thank you, Greg and Cara, for providing a wonderful get-away in Ruidoso!
