“Perfect getaway spot!”

This is my second time at the cabin. We just absolutely love it! Just a walk away from restaurants, shopping, bars. Your very own hot tub with a nice deck in the yard as well as a balcony deck! A short drive to the mountain for great skiing! AND it's ALL right on the river. You couldn't ask for much more!

“Great Family Stay Near Downtown Ruidoso”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a family getaway (2 adults, 2 kids under 4 yrs old) and stayed at Retro on the River. The location was top-notch as the main drag with restaurants and shops was a short walk away.

As the listing advises, be aware that the separate bedroom, which is downstairs, is a completely separate space - only accessed by an outside staircase and a door to the outside. Therefore, our little one's had to stay in the living room on the pull-out couch.

Overall, place was clean and well furnished. Would definitely stay here again.

I'm so glad that you guys enjoyed your stay! We really love the place and are looking forward to enjoying is this winter for some great skiing. I'm glad you liked the location. It is really perfect for us. The older kids can walk around in town and enjoy some wonderful treats like an ice cream cone and the adults can stroll over to the wine tasting! I hope you come back soon. -Reed

“Relaxation at it's BEST”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

This property was an AMAZING find! After staying in three other rentals this year all throughout Ruidoso, this one is the top spot for location! Once you arrive, you will no longer need your vehicle. It is true that you are in walking distance of all this town has to offer: food, shopping, bars, etc. What more could you ask for? In addition to location, this place felt most home, not a cabin. The owner has put so much thought and love into this place you will not feel like a visitor, but rather that you belong there. I would have been perfectly content to stay indefinitely. The outdoor space is to die for, as well. My friend and I spent every morning and early evening on the patio right off the bedroom. Your view is beautiful pine trees, with the sound of the river in the background. Relaxation is the name of the game here and parking was not a problem at all. You will not be disappointed and will be a return customer, as I will be too, no doubt!

“Retro on the River - you'll love it”

Our second trip to this fabulous Cabin was better than the first. The Cabin is kept in immaculate condition for its age and has everything you need for a great retreat. We pick the first weekend of October mainly for the cool weather and we were not disappointed. Even when it rains it is great in Ruidoso – especially if you are sitting on the upper deck at the Retro on the River. It does not get more relaxing or peaceful than that.
Our Small Dogs (Gumbo and Sassy) love the yard and spend hours exploring it looking for Deer. They did not find any but they remember last year and thought they would see them again.
I highly recommend the Retro on the River for any couple or small family. This comfy cabin within walking distance of funky shops and great restaurants can’t be beat. If you are looking to get away this is the place – even though it’s close to everything it quiet and peaceful. Can’t wait for next year.
