We went for the weekend. The room was very nice, and the staff was really friendly. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The hot tub was clean and easy to use. The fireplace was a great bonus! We will definitely be staying here next time we visit Ruidoso!

Awesome! Love love love it when good folks like you find us and then share with others. You nailed the experience perfectly. Also, thanks for the feedback on the bed. The mattresses are all brand new as we just upgraded all the cabins to Kings, so we never thought about pads. Will pass that along. Come again soon!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for the first time on vacation. Ruidosa is a beautiful town and Shadow Mountain Lodge was just as beautiful. The property is so pretty. Hummingbird feeders hang from the boardwalk-type porch roof. There are two chairs in
