RUIDOSO, New Mexico (KTSM) – A getaway tucked away in the tall, cool pines of Southern New Mexico is celebrating their 85th Anniversary and including their guests in the celebration.

Ruidoso’s Dan Dee Cabins are celebrating their 85th Anniversary this weekend, visitors can take part in staying in one of the 13 cabins, special will run from April 1 to May 15.

“A guest can come, make their reservation with me or on the phone or online and we are going to offer 50 percent a third night or a fourth night free,” said Owner Terry Christian.

While Dan Dee Cabins first opened in 1938, Christian says their cabins have been upgraded for a better stay.

“I’ve been here for just about 20 years, and it is my understanding that a Dr. Roswell, I believe, Dr. Suerinjin bought the property and had his son Dan Dee Seurinjin build the cabins.”

Over the years, the cabins have been modernized, first with electricity then with complete kitchens. As part of the unique nature of the tiny resort, each cabin is identified by its unique name.
