Staying in the Panther Lodge was a great experience. Our family and I had a blast in the home. The cabin was very warm and inviting. The house it self was very beautiful inside and out. The restroom on the top floor was really nice as well as all the other rooms in the house and the house was very clean and organized. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to rent the cabin, it is worth a vacation.
Was a great house and had a wonderful time there.

House was beautiful and plenty big for all of us. Beds were comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Just wish we had had the time to take advantage of staying at the house and used it more. Was in great location and we enjoyed it alot. Didn't have any trouble with the house or the rental company. Thanks for a great weekend.

We had a great 2 night stay in the Panther Lodge! Only wish we could have stayed longer. 2 families stayed comfortably in this home. The cabin has such great detail and vacation feel to it. Both the back and front porches are very picturesque. The upstairs master was a little challenging with little ones trying to climb the dangerous stairs, but they loved the cabin. We saw deer everyday in the driveway and forest from the back porch. Easy to get to town and enjoy Ruidoso activities. Driveway is steep, so winter/ice might get interesting!! A little pricey, but makes a great backdrop for pictures to make your friends jealous:)
When you look at pictures of Panther Lodge you just know you are going to have a great stay! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your time there! You are right it is very picturesque and very tastefully decorated.. This has been a very popular destination for our guests this summer. Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you all back here next year!

Best rental for family vacation

Our family enjoyed every aspect of the rental experience the staff is so friendly and when we stopped in the office of Condotel we were greeted and given our keys and detailed directions to our cabin .
There were plenty of deer and birds to see .
Sitting on the deck with morning coffee was indescribable..

We met our son and his family from California in Ruidosa
and stayed at the Panther Lodge. It was well appointed, charming, sparkling clean and more than met our expectations!
Condotel was great. They made the reservation process quick and easy. As we were departing, I left a bag that was very important to me. I called Condotel the next morning. The maintenance man went by the house, found my bag and took it to the office. Condotel shipped it out overnight and I had it the next day. They could not have been nicer!
Great house, great service - we will definitely be back.

Went with family and friends for my daughters birthday ski trip. The Panther Lodge was a great place to stay! The pictures do not do the cabin justice and we would recommend this cabin for an enjoyable stay. We are looking forward to returning to Ruidoso.

Beautiful cabin with great views!

This cabin is perfectly crafted with huge logs. There is no corner with some interesting detail. Master bedroom is in the second floor, it has a Jacuzzi with a big window in front for a great view. We had snow and our kids enjoy sliding on the slopes on the side. Kitchen is very well equipped. I spent the mornings drinking coffee and reading on the porch. We were surprised to see so many deer around for this place being close to downtown Ruidoso. Overall a very memorable experience.
we had a blast & the cabin was amazing

Cabin was very clean & well stocked with necessary items. Master bathroom has amazing 2 person jacuzzi tub. Beds were all very comfy. Open layout of kitchen/living room was perfect for socializing. Plenty of parking for 4-6 vehicles. We had 3 couples & 2 children & there was plenty of room. I would definitely recommend & would stay again!!
Perfect Winter Get-a-Way

The Panther Lodge was verything the site said it was, but more. The pictures on the site does no justice. I took my family skiing last winter and stayedat the Panther Lodge and everyone loved it. The whole lodge is set so nice, it made us feel right at home. The Views! The views from all windows of the lodge were just amazing. I loved opening the large folding window in the master bedroom and soaking up the montain air and enjoying the views! I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone who is wanting the Perfect Get-a-Way. The people at the Condotel Office were very sweet and helpful, this is my third year using Condotel..

Gorgeous rental getaway

My family and I have been visiting Ruidsos twice a year for the past 15 years. We stayed at the Panther Lodge for the first time 2 yrs. ago and loved it. The service was great. The staff was very friendly. This cabin is the Best Cabin we have rented. The location is great we walked to downtown for dinner, the cabin is very clean and beautiful. Loved waking up and seeing the deer thru these gorgeous windows. I have no complaints. We have visited 3 times with friends since and will continue visiting as long as we can. I highly recommend this cabin.
Fantastic outdoorsy yet luxurious accommodations!

Great, friendly service from the Condotel folks. The property location and condition were terrific! We loved sitting on this big porch and watching nature and relaxing inside and enjoying family time.
