A humble tin roofed cabin that is quaint, cozy and VERY comfortable. It is very quiet out here except for the occasion distant howl of coyotes and our dogs howling back. You must love dogs since we have 3 medium (Austrailan Shepherd full and mixes) and 2 little (12 to 15 lbs) lap warmers. An easy drive to White Sands National Monument, or to the mountains and snow in Cloudcr

Very satisfied with this experience. The cabin was near her house but felt like a completely private experience. De had all the amenities we needed. Enjoyed a campfire late into the night. Bed was comfy. Quick drive to White Sands. And the dogs and horses were friendly! Thanks again De.

Dee was very nice and welcoming. The directions were clear and we found the cabin easily. The night sky was clear and spectacular. The bed was comfortable, and the cabin was clean. However, the cabin was very close to the other (several) structures on the site and there was a lot of junk strewn about the area. When we arrived, Dee advised us that the septic system was on the fritz, needed to be pumped out, and could we refrain from flushing anything paper???? That statement really discouraged from using the plumbing at all! For $83.00 for one night (including taxes, fees, etc) we were very disappointed and had it not been 6:30 pm on New Year's Eve, we'd have gone elsewhere and asked for a refund. Sorry to leave a bad review, but we really think Dee should have notified us before we arrived so that we could consider making other plans.

This was a very unfortunate occurence of events. The last lodger I had clogged the commode so I did not have a choice but dig it up and fix it. The plumbing was working fine and the request was very simple to not put any more tissue in the commode. I have NEVER flushed paper of any sort in my toilets and have NEVER had problems.

Honestly, way exceeded my expectations. The cabin was located at the end of dead end street close to Dee's home and was well stocked, well maintained, and clean. We stayed there as a stopover before our trip to White Sands which is like 1/2 hour away. Dee is close by for any questions and will respect your privacy if that's what you're looking for but honestly we really enjoyed hanging out with her and the dogs, the quail and rabbits! We only stayed for one night but wished we had more time there. We liked our little spot so much rather than go out for dinner we stayed in chilled, cooked on the fully functional kitchen and then built a fire in the firepit. We couldn't figure out the Edison stove but the heaters Dee provided all the heat we needed. The dogs made us feel extra safe! We even hiked behind the house for a couple of hours before sitting underneath the stars with a fire. Lovely lovely night, that day was one of the highlights to our trip. My sister and I look forward to staying there again in the future and bring our mother and visiting the other nearby sites. I'm so happy i came across this listing on Hipcamp.

It was quiet and peaceful surronded by land she invited us to explore. The cabin was warm and cozy at night, turned on the fans during the day; she let us build a fire in the wood-burning stove one night, and used her fire pit another night. Everything was clean and comfortable, she had extra toiletries in case you forgot anything. We could come and go as we pleased but she was available if we had any questions, a great hostess.
