Cozy, clean and relaxing!

Date of Stay:

We had a great time! Loved the cabin. Kristen and Alan were wonderful hosts. Very responsive and gave great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Had a little glitch with the a/c and Alan had it up and running in no time. Got to see lots of wildlife—from deer to elk. They were everywhere! And we had daily hummingbird visitors. Cabin is in a lovely area. All in all, a great vacation. Don’t miss the 1.5 hour trip to White Sands for sunset. Well worth the drive!

Great getaway!
