Hi! Thank you for your interest in our cabin, The Wild Onion. We purchased and renovated this cabin as a full-time vacation rental with all the little details we would expect to find in a rental for ourselves.
Ruidoso is our home, and we love to share the undiscovered pleasures of the area. We have mountains, rivers, hunting, fishing, biking, skiing, shopping, restaurants, and so much more.
Our nightly price includes all local taxes, and accommodation of up to five guests. Kids are always welcome, and we're pet friendly too (with prior approval). Just let us know who you're bringing.
We have lovingly renovated and modernized this 1940s cabin. The Wild Onion is located west of Midtown, right between Upper Canyon and Grindstone Lake, in a well-established Ruidoso neighborhood. You'll likely wake up to deer, elk, birds, and lots of other wildlife right there in the yard. Although we are in a neighborhood, the cabin sits on a large corner lot, with a comfortable distance between neighbors.
The cabin has been updated with all conveniences, including a brand new kitchen, renovated bathroom, all new furniture, and WiFi, but it still retains that 1940s cabin charm. If you have any special needs, just ask. We live just five minutes away.
There is a driveway in the back of the cabin and in the front. Each provides parking for one car.
We ask that you please use only the front door to enter and exit the cabin.
The house sleeps up to five people, but it’s also perfect for a couple who want a quiet getaway.
There is one private bedroom, which has a queen-size Tuft & Needle foam mattress, fitted with luxury bedding. If you’ll be using the available Pack n’ Play, there’s plenty of room for it in the bedroom. And don’t worry if you forget your phone charger! On each of the nightstands is a lamp with a wireless charger (for compatible phones) and a USB port built right into the base. In the bedroom, you'll also have a tall dresser and an open closet to fit all of your belongings. Turn up the baseboard heater in the cooler months to keep it nice and warm.
The twin-size stacking beds are located across from the front door. They can be left stacked to sleep one person, or unstacked to sleep two. The beds are light enough to move with two people.
The couch serves as the fifth sleeping spot.
We gladly provide all bed linens and pillows.
We have a large full bathroom with a clawfoot tub, which also serves as a shower. We provide towels, soap, lotion, toilet paper, and a few other little things that you may have left at home.
Comfortably relax on the couch, or cozy up in the armchair. We provide board games, playing cards, kids books and toys. Or hook your phone up to the Bluetooth speaker to enjoy your own music.
The kitchen is fully-equipped, and you’ll have everything you need to cook a meal, bake cookies, or just make coffee and toast. The refrigerator is a smaller model but can hold enough food for a family. Plus, we have a dishwasher for easy clean up.
We provide olive oil and basic spices. If you need anything we don’t have, we'll do our very best to accommodate.
We love coffee! We provide a Keurig with K-cups, or if you prefer to brew more than just a cup, we also have a Mr. Coffee drip coffee maker. We provide ground Starbucks Pike Place, sugar, stevia, and honey. We also provide a selection of teas.
Just off the kitchen is a small laundry room, complete with a washer, dryer, and laundry detergent.
The cabin has high speed WiFi access, HD over-the-air TV channels, and an Amazon Fire TV. You can watch unlimited shows and movies on our Amazon Prime account, or sign in to any of your accounts to watch what you want (NFL, NHL, HBO, MLB, iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, etc). If you make a purchase through our Amazon account, I will ask for a reimbursement following your stay.
Because you're probably traveling with enough stuff already, we do have a high chair, a Pack ’n Play, kids’ dishes & utensils, toys, and books. Just let us know if there's a little one in your group so we can have things ready.
Guests have access to the entire home. Everything is there for you to use.
