Destiny Cabin itself is a charming mix of the old and the new. It’s one of 35 cabins that make up Ruidoso’s Apache Village neighborhood. All were built in the late 1940s by an experienced carpenter of handsome knotty pine, and each boasts distinctive handcrafted features. The cabin has been modernized in the decades since, with air-conditioning as well as updated kitchen appliances and bathroom fittings. There’s even a flat-screen TV with cable in the living room. It hangs above the wood-burning fireplace, which will warm up the room in a jiffy while bathing it in an inviting golden glow.
Along with a comfortable sofa, Destiny Cabin’s living area includes a dining table and kitchenette. Though compact, the kitchen area features a full-size refrigerator/freezer, oven/stove, microwave and coffeemaker, along with tableware and cookware. Then again, you might want to eat all your meals out, given how many restaurants are within walking distance—Can’t Stop Smokin’, Casa Blanca, Khrome Grill and the Cork and Kettle, to name just a few.
Destiny Cabin’s primary bedroom boasts a queen-size bed. The corrugated-metal headboard, built-in side table and bedside sconces accentuate the room’s rustic charm. With a pair of double beds, the second room can sleep as many as four people. The kids will love it here: Every night will be a slumber party. An additional guest can make themselves at home in the living area, since the sofa converts to a twin bed. When you arrive, you’ll find the beds perfectly made up, plenty of clean towels in the bathroom and extra bedding ready and waiting. If you need a nap or a shower after your travels, you can take one right away, before you even unpack.
The cabin’s front porch is sure to be a favorite place to start your morning with a cup of coffee or to end your evening in the silvery moonlight. There are two chairs, and the porch roof will provide welcome shade during the midday summer heat. So will the numerous trees surrounding the cabin and giving Apache Village its sense of serenity and privacy.
