(Our southwest trip started May 1. All of my posts were written as the trip went along but were not posted live until we returned. If you want to read all the posts related to the trip, click on "southwest" in the label section below).
Cloudcroft, NM was the quiet sleepy town we had been looking for ... a place to spend two nights to rest and relax, after a series of one-night stands on the road. Plus, Cloudcroft is close to Sunspot, home of the National Solar Observatory, one of the places we planned to visit.
After driving through the very small town, and then back again, we decided to stop at Spruce Cabins to check price and availability. Cabin 3 was available for two nights and I asked to see it. It was lovely ... a large room with a couch, queen bed and kitchen area with full sized refrigerator and stove. Topping it off were two Adirondack chairs out front. Perfect!
Spruce Cabins offers an AAA discount that is 10% off the regular room rate. There is no housekeeping, as I suspected with a cabin, but towels will be replaced upon request.
It was a delightful place to stay. Provided us just what we were looking for: some quiet and rest.
