We decided to stay at Noisy Water Lodge (Canyon Retreat) after looking around for a nice cabin online for quite a while. When I called in to make the reservation, the man was very nice and answered all the questions I had. Upon arriving, both Mr. and Mrs. Duncan were very nice to us and made us feel very welcome. We really didn't have to contact them much during the week, as we didn't have any problems with the cabin. It was clean and very comfortable. We felt as if we were in our very own home away from home. I would like to mention that this is a two story cabin, with a beautiful stairway, but it can be a bit tiring, hahaha, although my 65 year old mother did just fine....other than that, this place was wonderful! If what you are looking for is a place out in the pines with wildlife and beautiful scenery, this is the place!!!! This place even had games and movies and well, we just didn't want to leave. Thanks Noisy Water....once again....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!
My husband and I stayed in Sky Cabin for a three day weekend. This is a lovely two story cabin. While there are other cabins around, we had total privacy. There are decks on two stories, with great views across the canyon.The decorator could not decide if this was a cowboy cabin, (rope baseboards, cowboy print sofa), ski lodge ( crossed antique ski poles over the door) or a country cabin ( chintz and calico) but the whole thing works. An inside gas fireplace was not needed in June, but looked like it would be cozy. There is also an outdoor fireplace and a gas grill.The outdoor hot tub for two is screened off for total privacy. The key opens the back door, off the kitchen. We thought a card table upstairs might be a good addition.There are lots of stairs, and we noted a lack of handrails. Bring backpacks and reusable grocery bags to carry your clothes and supplies. Binoculars would also be great, we saw a bear, many deer and an elk.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and were taken aback by how much larger and nicer it was than the pictures made it seem on the website! This place is gorgeous! It has a huge, spacious patio, a propane bbq pit, greatly stocked kitchen(lots of pots and pans, muffin and bread pans, skillets, two coffee makers, dishwasher), bathroom amenities (i.e LOTS of towels, tp, soap) and a nice jacuzzi style tub upstairs. The view is amazing, and there were plenty of birds and deer that hung out around the place. It's tucked away in the upper canyon, and just across the way of the Rio Ruidoso. There was hi-speed internet (No Wi-fi), a nice HD flat screen tv, a cute fireplace, lots of fans available (no AC, but, who needs that in Ruidoso?!) The beds are comfy, the pillows quite firm.. the living area was nice and open, big huge windows overlooking your huge porch area.. this place was such a treat!
We were staying for 3 nights last December but it was so nice our trip this December are booked to go back to Noisy Water Lodge's cabin Bear Dean, this very wide around the first floor, the living room with couch to sleep comfortably and needless to say the kitchen also very spacious, three bedrooms are not huge but have enough to feel cozy and comfortable space heating not sensational -8 degrees that were felt outside. It has a large porch that I was not used by the cold and gas grill propane that without hesitation if you use, there is also Wi fi and small hills that children can slide and play in the snow, watch the deer as of Nearby is a unique experience and last but not least Glenda tremendous attention from the reservation.

Noisy Water Lodge staff was great and everything about the cabin met expectations. Great views, Huge cabin, hot tub, very clean, all the ammenities you need. We stayed for 3 days and 2 nights for a ski trip recently, the cabin is not too far from the main strip of Ruidoso so just a 5 minute trip into town. Cabin comes with cable tv and WIFI so you dont miss a beat. Huge front patio that overlooks the mountain with the hot tub on one end provides for a relaxing atmosphere in the evening.
