The cabin was very nice, and everything was there. My wife and I really enjoyed the decor. The only downfall was that the wireless internet would not work at our cabin. I could walk closer to the main office and pick up a signal, but it would not stay connected inside the cabin. We were in the area looking at real estate, and it would have been very helpful to have access to the internet to do some comparison shopping. The only other issue was that the back porch to our cabin looked out over the main street through the area. Not a big deal, but not the most private spot nor the most scenic view.

Other than these minor things, our stay was quite nice. We will definitely consider these cabins again on our next trip to Ruidoso.

Room Tip: Select a cabin that is not on the main road.

The cabin was excellent, the staff was professional and helpful and the surroundings were awesome. Very quiet, well maintained and furnished, it was a great get away. Story Book Cabins is a great place to stay.

We atayed three nights. For the first two days, the shower didn't work. It took two trips to the office to get it fixed. The floor in this cabin was very uneven/unlevel, making it "interesting" to try and navigate across it at night. There are much better places to stay while in Ruidoso. Don't waste your money here.

Room Tip: Shop around. There are much better places to stay while in Ruidoso.

Thank you for stopping by the office so that we could make that repair. We make every effort to have everything operating correctly before a guest visit and once in a while something catches us by surprise. Our intention is to correct the problem as soon as possible with the least inconvenience for our guest. We are not sure of the floor problem and we do provide lighting thru out the cabin for movement after dark.

Story Book Cabins will definitely be our first choice when looking for places to stay in Ruidoso. The cabins are comfortable and the management is very hospitable. Loved the shelf of books in the cabin. I managed to read an entire book during our stay and loved it.

I recently stayed at the Story Book Cabins in Ruisdosa New Mexico and very pleased with the cabins. They were very clean and well maintained. The location was convenient to down town. I enjoyed the quiet evenings sitting in the hot tub and the deer grazing on the front lawn. I would stay there again.

This is our favorite place to stay in Ruidoso. If you are looking for a nice, quiet place to get away, this is it. From the porch swings, hammocks and fireplaces to great deer watching, this is a cool place.

Stayed at Storybook Cabins in Ruidoso over Memorial Day Weekend. The cabin itself was very cute, clean, spacious. Couple minor problems-internet did not work at all and toilet would not flush. My only real complaint is that on the website it looks like you have a secluded cabin in the woods when in fact our cabin was right along a somewhat busy road. Otherwise a very nice place.

Room Tip: Don't take Cabin #8
