Thank you so much for providing such a peaceful and charming cabin for us to relax in over the weekend. We have never been to Cloudcroft before, but we will definitely come back. Between work, kids, and life in general, it is sometimes hard to find time to just BE together and that is what this weekend was for us. We were able to just BE together.
Thank you,

Dear Lisa,
Cabin is perfectly located, love the fact that it’s surrounded by beautiful pine trees. Love the shady porch and its grill. The outdoor lights are perfect when sitting out side and enjoying a glass of wine or hot cocoa. The room upstairs was great, Olga and I sat their enjoying the way the bed was presented. Very comfy… as for the rest of the cabin, well it was perfect. Thank you for all the amenities and extras. You outdid yourself. I have to thank you for alllll the movies you offer. I am a huge movie buff. Every section of the cabin presents a wonderful experience. Olga and I are very happy with our stay.
From us to you,

This long weekend was the respite and retreat I needed. I got to spend some quality time in silence – so rare these days – and spend some much needed time in prayer and worship. Thank you for providing a space that is inviting, comfortable, and peaceful. I will definitely be back!

Lisa, thanks again for the home away from home! I had surgery on Dec 22 and I start a new job tomorrow, so this was perfect to get some rest and stress free time. 🙂 My BFF joined me, so it made for a great girls getaway. We’ll be back!
Thanks again,

Such a beautiful, quiet & peaceful place! We finally saw the “fawn passage” very early this morning from the front porch. We saw a doe with twin yearlings. They were grazing contentedly. It was sweet to watch them up so close!

Just the spot I was looking for. I needed some quiet time with God and the mountains and your cabin was just the spot. Thank you for being so thoughtful for providing as many of the basic necessities a home needs. I look forward to returning in the near future.

My first Christmas. 🙂 Thank you

December 20, 2020
What a wonderful pre-Christmas weekend in the woods! We came up here to get away from the City and this cabin did not disappoint. A cozy fire, lots of movies and beautiful scenery are all that we needed.
You have a wonderful place! We had a great stay! The DVD selection is great! Your place has EVERYTHING we needed and some. Great job!

November 29, 2020
This was a perfect place for our socially distant Thanksgiving. Thank you for the hiking recommendations in your book and the DVD collection. We enjoyed watching movies by the fire after a long day of hiking the beautiful trails around here. We hope to return someday!

We had been trying to get out of the Texas heat all summer, but our schedule didn’t allow it. Finally we scheduled the last week of October! And surprise – a snow storm! What a lovely place to stay in and the cabin was so cozy + it was just gorgeous watching + walking in the snow. We enjoyed our time here so much! Hope to be back. God bless you,

What a lovely place to stay – Fawn Passage! The atmosphere is so peaceful and wonderfully quiet – was so refreshing 🙂 The house is ‘homey’ with delightful touches. Thank you for the care of Fawn Passage and how that comes across in the stay. We’ve stayed in many Air BnB’s & this one is top notch. And the comfort of sleep because of the bed was just right… Blessings,

Fawn Passage made a wonderful getaway for our celebration of 30 years together. My wife and I loved how cozy and relaxing the cabin was, and it provided everything we needed. The bed was incredibly comfortable and made for a solid night’s rest after so much sightseeing and shopping. We even enjoyed the movie collection while resting our feet and kicking back some coffee.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cabin with us and giving us a clean, attractive place to be our home for two days. May God bless you abundantly!

Thank you for having this wonderful cabin to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We really enjoyed Cloudcroft and White Sands. We just didn’t have enough time to do all the things we wanted, including a day of relaxing at the cabin. We hope to be back soon!
Karen and Keith – Colleyville, TX

I came trying to find some quiet time away from my stressful life. This cabin was just what I needed to spend time with God. The very first morning, He made His presence known and showed me that I was entitled to alone time with Him. “Be still and know that I am Lord”. I hope to make it here as often as I can.
Susie – Balmorhea, TX

July 29, 2020
My family & I rented both cabins. Half came from Arizona, the other half from Texas. This was our only “covid-safe” vacation we were able to take. It was much needed as we go back to Texas and start stressing over being a teacher and how to teach live + online safely without overdoing it. Thank you for this lovely cabin.
Will & Tami Thornton – Plano, TX

July 26, 2020
My wife and I had planned a trip to Europe to celebrate our 30th anniversary, but because of COVID-19, and the fact that she works on Ft. Bliss (travel restrictions), all those plans got cancelled. However, we both honestly feel this quiet get-away was exactly what we needed. Time to be alone, away from all the noise, pollution, electronics, etc. Sure, sightseeing in Europe is special, but spending the weekend here in beautiful Fawn Passage, talking, reminiscing, laughing and truly being with each other is much more meaningful for the soul!
We can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful cabin, and the memories we will cherish from Cloudcroft.
Ruby & Bob – El Paso, TX
P.S. We’ll be back!

July 18, 2020
We had a wonderful stay – love this cabin so much! It was perfect! Am already missing sitting on the porch in the morning with a great cup of coffee! Ready to come back! We will be back.

We had a lovely time at Fawn Passage! It was a very quiet, peaceful retreat in the cool mountain air! We enjoyed hiking and relaxing in the area. Our favorite time was photographing the night sky on the trestle overlook! So many stars!! Our Creator is so amazing. To think he knows how many stars are in the sky – He should… He made them!

Lisa, everything at Fawn Passage was everything I needed, especially having had the opportunity to spend some quality time with Amber! Thank you for providing a home away from home. We’ll be back soon!

We are extremely grateful for your generosity.

Thank you so much for giving us this perfect home away from home experience. We loved every moment of it. The place was amazing and the people around here are so kind. One moment I’ll remember forever is my handsome boyfriend getting down on one knee and asking me to be his wife. YES! We are happily engaged. Thank you once again.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. This is a perfect getaway from our business and just enjoy God, nature and each other. You have made the place so cozy. We just enjoyed every single thing about being here! And I have to mention how impeccably clean everything is! Thank you for an amazing experience.

This was the in-between year -the one where the kids and grandkids go to the inlaws – so we decided a little mountain retreat was just what we needed – to relax, rest and regroup. This was it! We love everything about your beautiful cabin in the piney mountains. The snow all week was incredible! Being a West Texas girl… I feel like a kid when snow comes calling. I know you didn’t make that happen, but it was amazing!!! It was wonderful to find not only the kitchen well stocked, but every attention to detail in the bath & bedroom were a great addition. Next visit will be a lot less carrying & packing!! We are reluctantly leaving, yet going home refreshed and rested – the snow made way for sleeping in AND daily naps! Thank you for your hospitality. It was perfect!

This is a magical getaway and honeymoon spot . Got to adventure the town. We enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen. The teas are awesome. The wildlife is awesome. We saw and heard deer. It was so relaxing and peaceful. Thank you so much for being here.
Andy & Celina Montgomery – Roswell, NM

September 7, 2019
We loved Fawn Cabin so much! This place is good for the soul. The kitchen was stocked so well and we loved the deer corn and hummingbird feeders. We saw a white tail fawn for the first time and it was magical. 🙂 We brought our 7 week old daughter (with permission) – it was the first time we could get away with her since she was born. Thanks for providing such a great place.
Shayla & Josh Peterson – Lubbock TX

Our third stay at Fawn Passage. Refreshing and quiet. Recent rain, so elk and deer not as easy to see as last year. Enjoyed the pie auction & melodrama in Cloudcroft – very friendly people!
Sally & Tim Reid – San Angelo, TX

August 25, 2019
My wife and I enjoyed our time here at Fawn Cabin. The place is cozy and it has that home feel to it. My wife and I have not had a weekend like this in a long time and we needed it. The time here brought a closeness to one another and it allowed us to reconnect not only with each other, but with God as well. He is the foundation of our marriage and this short weekend helped us realize that. Thank you for opening up your cabin.
Roger & Dirora Baeza – El Paso, TX

August 18, 2019
Cabin is very nice welcoming cabin. August 9th is my wife & I 37th anniversary and got this cabin for the weekend of 8/16-18, 2019. We very much enjoyed the stay and enjoyed the comfort & relaxing stay and also we have forgotten how silence sounds, we live in Odessa, TX and it is very noisy & busy. We both talked and agreed we need this more often, but longer stay to wind down. We really loved the Bible & books that were here & music. Enjoyed sleeping with windows open & fresh air. We will be planning another trip back here in these cabins. Thank you for making our stay welcome. God bless you.

This was a lovely alternative to camping at Ski Cloudcroft. Most of the other conference attendees were camping on the slopes! The cabin is well appointed and carefully maintained. The addition of the emergency lightbulbs is a nice touch; we were without power for about six hours Friday afternoon into evening. Thank you for making our 2019 Pecos Conference luxurious!
Christine and Steve – Corrales, NM

August 4, 2019
This cabin has been a perfect get away for us. Everything we needed was available, furnishings are comfortable! The bed was amazingly comfortable. Loved not having a TV, slept with the windows open listening to the rain. Saw the deer come eat the corn & took numerous pictures of the hummingbirds. Great experience. You have created a wonderful haven here! God bless you!
Dolores & Bobby – Livingston, TX

We enjoyed having our coffee on the deck each morning and watching the hummingbirds. This is a very pleasant cabin for a place to relax and to enjoy nature.

Thank you for sharing Fawn Passage with us this week. It has been a relaxing haven. One of my devotions this week said “When we stand firmly on the gospel, may we allow it to dominate our lives so that everyone within our sphere of influence can see that we have been with Jesus.” Your hospitality and the spirit in this cabin certainly shows Christ’s love in your life. You are using your sphere of influence to point others to Jesus.
Now for those who may not know the area too well, we’d like to share some of the things we enjoy when we visit the Cloudcroft area. Take a drive down Karr Canyon and stop at the Old Apple Barn. We ate at the burger place next door and enjoyed our bison burgers very much. Check out the pistachio farm and store in Alamogordo. The museum at Cloudcroft is definitely worth a visit. We got to experience a different road to La Luz because of the highway shut down. That was fun. We’ve enjoyed our trip very much, as we always love coming to Cloudcroft.
Thanks again,
Jeff & Denise Parker – Borger, TX

Adrian and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend away from the 100 degree weather in Carlsbad. We loved the brewery in town, the pizza was delicious. We also went on a hike in the morning, the views were beautiful. After the hike, we spent a relaxing afternoon watching movies and grilling burgers. This place was perfect for our mini vacation and just enough space for the two of us. We loved all the amenities, much better than a hotel stay. Thanks for providing a beautiful place for our weekend!
Adrian and Cassie

June 9, 2019
WOW!! We could not believe the way we felt at home as soon as we opened the door. There was not anything more we could have asked for, wanted or needed. The place is just AWESOME! It was a real pleasure working with you and staying in your place. All of the amenities were even better than described. She fell in love with the way it was decorated and everything that was available to us. She had to have some soap, so we left a check for that. Thank you so much for such a relaxing weekend! Will most definitely recommend you to everyone we know!
Thanks a million,
Tommy & DeAnn – Artesia, NM

March 10-13, 2019
Fawn Passage was the perfect getaway for my husband and I over spring break. The cabin was more than we could have imagined. It was located in the perfect place – surrounded by pine trees, deer wandering on the property & even fresh snow on the day we left. We loved that you anticipated all our needs, making the cabin cozy & fully stocked – movies, books, kitchen items, blankets, comfy bed, great soaps/lotions, bird feeder, deer corn, etc.
We spent every day hiking around Cloudcroft – Osha trail, grand view &  bridal veil falls trails, cloud climbing trestle trails.
We look forward to returning again. Thanks for your hospitality & sharing this beautiful place with us!
Michael & Julie Haverdink – Lubbock, TX

February 6, 2019
What a fabulous place! We came to get away & enjoy our 21st wedding anniversary. We spent the days exploring Cloudcroft, Ruidoso & White Sands, then spent the mornings & evenings by the fire. It snowed the first night we were here, which was awesome. 🙂 Thank you for having everything we needed to feel cozy and comfy! Getting to watch the deer & the birds was great. Didn’t spend time on the deck, but if it was warmer we totally would have. The grill was an awesome addition – steaks turned out fabulous. Thanks for taking such great care of this place.
Chris & Jamie Goodgame – Midland, TX

January 28, 2019
We came for a long weekend to just relax and reconnect; we achieved our goals! The cabin is just as perfect as it was in 2015. Your website and kitchen should be the s standard for all vacation property owners!!
Thank you for another wonderful time here. I hope we make it back sooner than four  years.
Brent & Michelle Mason – Post, TX

January 18-20, 2019
My husband has been deployed since November and it has been very trying on myself and my 2 year old daughter. We were really needing a little weekend get-a-way to have fun, enjoy one another, and play in the snow. Our trip was spontaneous, but I feel like finding your cabin was meant to be. We went tubing at winter park in Ruidoso, enjoyed the Old Apple Barn in High Rolls mountain park, ate pizza at Cloudcroft Brewing Company, and ate some yummy treats from Kenna Belle’s Kreations Bakery at the Burro Street boardwalk. Last but not least, we cozied up in your amazing cabin!! Thank you for a weekend here that we will always remember. Next time, we’ll bring my husband once he returns. Thank you!!
All the best,
Meghan & Paige – stationed at Ft Bliss, TX originally from Benecia, CA

Lived in Alamogordo for almost 5 years and I wish we had found your place sooner. We had the most relaxing weekend here. Spent our time with the fire, a couple movies and quick 2-mile run down the road. We appreciate the time and love you put into your place to ensure your guests are comfy and taken care of. My husband’s 28th birthday was on Friday and this is exactly what he asked for.
We look forward to spending more weekends here.
Thank you,

Rick & Lisa,
It was wonderful meeting you and visiting! Thank you for taking time to chat – when you didn’t have the time. Thank you for your diligence in getting me “connected”! Thank you for your hospitality and your excellent ethics – both in soul tending & housekeeping.
As with the other writers in this journal, we loved sitting on the deck, cooking on the grill, the home-stocked kitchen and the love tucked in every corner of the cabin. We feel very blessed. to have been led to “choose” this cabin. You have used God’s gift to gift others – “blessed to be a blessing.” You bring comfort and joy, a place of revival and rest.
We have quietly and peacefully celebrated 41 years of marriage. We’ve talked about family values, precious grandchildren, growing old, serving through our ministry in church nursery, and caring for others’ needs. Yes – talked. And prayed at your table, where so many who have been here before us have prayed!
Lisa, this is indeed sacred ground here on the mountain! I’m so thrilled we are sisters!
In Him,
David & Sherri Elkins

We too needed to get grounded and get out of the Texas heat for a few days. This place is so peaceful. I have stayed in a lot of cabins and this is by far the most well kept place ever. You can feel the nurture and love put into this place. We would like to bring our family and stay next door. Thank you for such a lovely place. May Peace be with you –

  What a great peaceful little cabin. It was so quiet and we could feel the love in every corner of this cabin. We came here for a little get away for our 36th anniversary and are leaving relaxed and renewed. Thank you for paying attention to every little detail – hummingbird syrup, deer corn, kitchen condiments, and tea, coffee & water. It is so well stocked.
  Blessings to you and all that enjoy this peaceful cabin.
Until next time,

What a fantastic cabin in the woods. We enjoyed our stay and our adventures. Yesterday we went to Cloudcroft Art Show, many talented artists. We also explored the Lincoln National Forest and White Sands National Monument. Both beautiful and truly God and nature at its finest! Couldn’t ask for anything better. Until next time!
Thank you,

My granddaughter, Zoe, and I really enjoyed the cabin. It gave us time away from everyone to re-connect, as I usually only see her once a year and all the parents and siblings are around then. It never fails to amaze me how I just walk in the door and I am at peace. It is as if all the stress, worries, and situations just disappear! At least for a few days!
Had a wonderful time,
Pamela Patrick – Carlsbad, NM

My first stay at Fawn Passage! Had a wonderful time. I was wanting a few days away to unwind and meet with the Lord. Fawn Passage fit the bill perfectly. It was very quiet, which is what I wanted. And exceptionally clean! You should be proud of how clean your cabin is kept – very inviting. As I said, my first stay and it was wonderful. Lord willing, I shall return.
Thank you and God bless,

Thank you!!!

The cabin was perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds. The quiet and cool temperatures revived us after suffering through West Texas heat. We leave refreshed and restored.

Thank you Lisa & family for such a lovely place to stay. My husband and I needed some down time from our very busy lives, and this was just the place to reconnect and rest.

Day 1: Immediately filled the hummingbird feeders. It’s been 10 years since our last camping trip to Cloudcroft. Would sit in our camper trailers with our fingers out the windows and hummingbirds would land on them to get their sweet nectar. Looked around the cabin wondering if… nope, that is here also. Needed nothing. So sad to hear the grocery store is no longer. Sitting on the porch: No mosquitos or bugs! Threw out corn… no deer. Enjoyed movies.
Day 2: Pancakes, eggs, bacon… never take the time to do that at home. Wonderful. Took a drive to Ruidoso today. Grilled for dinnner this evening. Enjoyed the hummingbirds and birds at the bird feeder. No deer! Enjoyed movies & musc.
Day 3: Trip to town for ice cream, Alamogordo for the Space Museum and back up the mountain to the cool. More movies tonight. Lots of reading done. Pack up. 🙁
Time to go home tomorrow but so thankful that we were able to take a few days off and spend it in this wonderful place. Thank you Lisa & family for your attentiveness in making our stay memorable.

My 3rd time to stay at Fawn Passage. I love it here. Lisa, you and your husband do such a wonderful job of making this a home away from home. Thank you for all your effort. Hope to return again.

God was waiting for me here. As soon as I drove up and opened the door, I could feel his presence. This time I came so weary and exhausted! My father passed away suddenly about 2 months ago. I also had a very stressful job change. I love the mountains, but to be honest, I slept the first 2 days I was here. Much needed rest in such a quiet and peaceful cabin. In all I had walked through the last 5 months, I had forgotten who I was. Here is what God spoke to me in your wonderful cabin.

I close my eyes and I can clearly see my daddy in the corner of the church, praying out loud to his God. A God of power and strength, without hesitancy in believing that God was hearing every word. He prayed with boldness and faith in a powerful, strong God.
I close my eyes and I can see myself peeking out of my bedroom door early in the morning, watching my mother as she was kneeling in front of the gold chair in the living room, crying and praying her concerns out to a loving and compassionate God. She prayed quietly, reverently, with tears streaming over those she loved and cared for.
I close my eyes seeking the one true God who is powerful and strong, who is tender and loving, who hears every word I pray, and will answer me always!
I am a Child of Prayer!
I am a Child of Faith!
I am a Child of God!
Thank you,

We sincerely thank you for providing Fawn Passage for us to stay in. We were able to relax, hike and enjoy these beautiful mountains. My husband and I loved watching the hummingbirds! One can truly feel God’s presence in such a calm and serene place as Fawn Passage.
We will be back!

Praise our awesome Lord for safe, clean places like yours where people can rest, relax and enjoy God’s creation. Thank you for keeping this place soooooo tidy… PLUS it’s extra nice not to have to carry along from home all the little things like foil paper, flat iron, q-tips, etc… it makes all the difference. We saw the deer families, blue jays & hummingbirds, too. Nothing but good things to say!
God bless,

We met in these mountains in March 1984 and spent our honeymoon up here in August 1986. What a wonderful way to celebrate our 30th anniversary! The beautiful setting, the tranquility, and a reminder from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of the incomparable love, made a terrific memory.
This cabin is in great shape, well maintained and has good features. The only negative? This trip was too short! Of course that’s not your fault. We really need to come back, at least twice a year. The nine deer we had as visitors agreed.
Thanks again!
John & Kathy Faussett – El Paso, TX

Thank you for a great anniversary get-a-way! Had 5 deer join us for suuper, another for breakfast, and a dozen hummingbirds for coffee! Loved it!

As usual, I met with God here. This cabin is exactly right for me to come and hide away from all the pressures that come.
Thank you so much for always allowing me a late check out. That extra time means so much to me. This time I came with a long list of questions about my life direction, that I needed answers from God. Because of the peacefulness and calmness in this cabin, I was able to hear the voice of God clearly.
Thank you so much,
Pamela Patrick – Carlsbad, NM

Thank you Lisa, Rick and Jordan for all you do to keep the cabin up and running and so wonderful. We had a great time celebrating our 20th anniversary and daydreaming about buying a place up here when we retire. Loved the hummingbirds, the black rabbit (that failed to read the sign saying the corn was for the deer!) and the rain on the metal roof. Can’t believe it was cool enough to have a fire in August!!! Now back to 100+ degree days in El Paso.
God bless,

Fawn Passage was absolutely awesome! It was exactly what I needed to renew my spirit. The cabin was very clean, quite peaceful and relaxing. When I went to look for something in any of the rooms, the items were there and I didn’t even bring them. The owner knows exactly what is needed! She even provides special & wonderful smelling Thymeless Bath & Oils lotion, sprays & candles. Plus the bed is so comfortable. While sitting on the porch we saw deer, stellar blue jays & a little black bunny eating the corn the owner provided. The ruby throat hummingbirds were so cute! This place is better than home because it was much more restful! We could feel the cabin’s love and passion in the atmosphere at Fawn Passage. The owner works very hard to provide the best for their guests!
I am very appreciative and grateful to have stayed at a cabin like Fawn Passage. Looking forward to coming back.

What a wonderful place to stay. Just beautiful – a place to “unplug.” Beautifully decorated, very clean and very comfortable. We loved it.

Yea! I was able to return for another visit and bring my husband. He enjoyed it as much as I did, if not more. Thank you for providing such a peaceful place to relax.
The hummingbirds kept us entertained. We also caught a glimpse of a raccoon on the deck one night. The blue birds loved the corn and my husband said he saw a deer.
Thank you & God bless!

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known!!” Ps. 19:1-2
Thank you for providing a place to enjoy nature’s proclamations!! This was one stop on a cross-country road trip designed to refocus, revive and refresh me. So much of all three happened right here! Beautiful setting, comfortable amenities… relaxation from moment one. I look forward to coming back!

Thank you sooooo very much for the hospitality of this beautiful cabin the past 4 days. It was perfect for our second honeymoon and celebrating 10 years. Now we load up from here to get our kids a come back to the to the cabin next door, Cedar Lodge. I hate to leave this cabin because of how much down time we both had and needed. You’ve done such an amazing job on this cabin. We will be back, Lord willing. I will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends back home in El Paso, Texas. Thank you and God bless you!

Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience! It has been years since we have been able to take a getaway without kids, and this was just what we needed! The cabin is beautiful, peaceful and cozy and there was nothing that would have made our stay more enjoyable! We will definitely be back!
Thank you!

I had seen pictures of the updated cabin, but had never seen it personally. I drove up with mom and recognized the outside. We walked in and all I could get out of my mouth was WOW!!! I have now seen the before and the after. It is breathtaking, and God has blessed you with amazing talents!! It was so relaxing. I want to thank you for this weekend, it was just what we needed. Breanna and I picked up pinecones, she had so much fun putting corn out for the deer! The outhouse races were funny, we had such a wonderful time. Thank you for this wonderful weekend!
Love you,

This weekend was my birthday present & it was by far the best birthday celebration I have ever had. The cabin is wonderful. It is just perfect, best bed I have ever slept on & we got such enjoyment out of the wildlife. I hope to return many times.

A wonderful place to unwind and “boy” was it needed. We have felt so cozy and warm here & maybe more relaxed than should be allowed (never). The sheets were as you said – the loft, FANTASTIC, and bedding, too. I love our new hideaway.

Love this little cabin! My husband and I just celebrated 38 years of marriage & wanted to go somewhere for a few days alone & not too far from home  -this was perfect! You  have thought of everything anyone could possibly need – thank you so much! Two days is not enough, so we will be back – I’m sure it’s even better in the summertime. 🙂
Butch & Holly Boyd – Lubbock, TX

All of us who fight battles on the physical and spiritual level need time to regroup, reevaluate, formulate plans, pull the dreams back out… this was the perfect place to do it! Our hearts mostly needed RESTORATION and it was so wonderful to find a place to allow Jesus to come and heal, to rest in His Presence, to reconnect our hearts as husband and wife, which is so needed with every couple, but not easy to do in a culture that doesn’t value that.
I pray this cabin becomes that to every couple who stays here – maybe just a little, perhaps a whole lot! Renewing, restoring, refreshing – all available through Jesus when we ask. Thanks Lisa & Rick for providing a place to be quiet, listen and find our hearts again.

What a wonderful place to get away & relax! Our stay here at Fawn Passage was extraordinary – we loved every minute. You have thought of everything to make your guests feel welcome, from all the amenities you provide such as basic food staples, wood (and plenty of it!) for the wood-burner, the handmade & homemade soaps, etc. You even provided food for the wildlife! Yesterday we fed 9 deer in the beautiful setting of the yard.
The peace & quiet of the mountain, as well as the beautiful birds & wildlife make this a place we will cherish. We hope to return soon!
Mark & Gayle Weeks – Canyon, TX

Our stay at Fawn Passage was absolutely wonderful! We wish our stay could have been longer. This little place is perfect for 2 and provided everything we could have possibly needed.
We were able to enjoy the deer both mornings while we made breakfast, along with all the beautiful birds!
We want to thank you for our wonderful experience at Fawn Passage. We are sad our stay here has ended so fast, but we will be back very soon!

Loved every minute of our time here. Wish we could stay longer – 2 nights is not long enough. Such a nice cabin – everything was perfect! We love Cloudcroft! Have been coming for years w/our children. Now we bring them & grandkids. The whole family loves it here.
Looking forward to next time!
Thanks, Ben & Robbin – Welch, TX

Well it’s time to go. We wanted a place to go, away from the everyday grind and triple digit heat. We looked and looked for some place within a day’s drive. Cloudcroft “is” the perfect weather and scenery. Your place is wonderful, we enjoyed the kitchen. My wife said “it’s set up exactly the way she would do hers.”
We did not miss  TV because the movies and music is very much to our taste. We felt very much at home. So don’t want to leave, but we gotta.
Jimmy & Michelle Freeman – Azle, TX
p.s. I bought a wonderful bottle of linen spray – Honeysuckle Rose. Thanks! Michelle

August/September 2013
It’s been absolutely fabulous! We saw lots of Jays, hummers and Chickadees. The first morning, there were 2 deer who didn’t mind 2 relatively quiet observers. On the fourth and final morning, we had 11 deer at one time. Four were does and fawn pairs, representing 8 of the 11.
Loved the cozy cabin and the outstanding attention to making our stay comfortable.  It’s obvious that lots of care went into supplying all the conveniences to make us feel like welcome guests. We want to give 2 thumbs up on this great mountain experience.

Thank you for a beautiful, quiet place for us to celebrate our 18th anniversary. The cabin is cozy and so clean. Wonderful books and DVDs – I would love to live here. 🙂 And thank you for allowing my service dog, Willow. We spent several hours touring the shops in Cloudcroft and eating lunch, which I would not have been able to do without her.
Thank you again for all you’ve done to make this a nice getaway from “normal” life.
God bless,

We have stayed a few times at Cedar Lodge and was able to watch Fawn Passage take shape. What another piece of heaven you have here!
Your gift of hospitality is ever-present in this cozy cabin. This trip was time away for just the two of us to rest, relax, and reconnect. We are usually on trips with our kids and granddaughter. To be able to come in to Fawn Passage and and let the cares of our sometimes crazy lives go away for a few days was made that made that much easier with all your attention to details. From the well-equipped kitchen, to the cozy bedroom, to the CDs and DVDs, to the wonderful throw blanket on the couch, your servant’s heart shines!!
We enjoyed all of the wildlife each day. We saw 2 deer every day, numerous birds/doves, and hummingbirds. The rufous hummingbird was a sight to see!
With all this said, thank you again for a wonderful stay at Fawn Passage. We will be back, so instead of goodbye, we’ll say see ya later and God bless!!

It’s hard to describe how nice and how comfortable we stayed in this cabin. It is a lot more of what we were expecting – everything is so perfectly balanced, clean, organized, attention to detail. It was just so perfect for me and my wife.
We came from El Paso, TX to escape the heat, the noise and the stress, and getting here to Cloudccroft and staying in this cabin was such the perfect medicare. We enjoyed very much the location, we went riding our mountain bikes and filled ourselves with positive energy. Thank you for having a place like this for people like us.
Este lugar esta lleno de energia positiva y nos hizo sentir como en casa. Estamos muy agradecidos. Gracias por sus detalles. (This place is full of positive energy and made us feel at home. We are very grateful. Thank you for your details.)

Just can’t express how marvelous our stay was here at Fawn Passage. Everything that is needed was here. We really needed a weekend of relaxing and we got it here. This is the perfect place to get away. It was not far from town, which we also enjoyed and of course the peacefulness of God’s creation all around us was awesome. We enjoyed a really nice walk through the neighborhood and the people here were very friendly. Your cabin is in the perfect spot. Thank you for the hard work you guys put in to your place to make it so comforting. This cabin will definitely be recommended. Thank you!
Angel & Veronica Mancilla – El Paso, TX

Everything about this little piece of paradise was perfect! From the wood-burning stove to the heated mattress pad, we were treated to sheer comfort. We were just far enough from town to enjoy nature at its finest, but close enough to other renters/residents to feel safe and welcome. Enjoying our breakfast while watching an adorable family of deer enjoy theirs is a treat we will not soon forget!
Thank you for the obvious special care and hard work you put in to preparing Fawn Passage for us to stay in. For us, nothing has come as close to perfection as our stay here at Fawn Passage. We will definitely be back!

Home away from home. Loved everything about this cabin for two! I think we used every amenity available from wood burning stove to wifi, even ground our own fresh coffee. Thanks for making this cabin home away from home. We will highly recommend it to all our friends & family.

We enjoyed everything about our stay here! It’s the perfect size cabin for 2 people. The kitchen is very well stocked, the bed is super comfy and the wood burning stove was absolutely perfect. You have created a wonderful getaway spot and we hope to be back soon. We will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends. Thank you!

“Another Home Run!” My wife and I have stayed in the larger cabin to the east and it was wonderful. It was just right for us and our daughter and her two kids, but this one is perfect for just two. Once again, you have supplied it with just the right things. There is one thing about this whole experience we don’t like – “we have to leave!” I have to go back to Lubbock and play railroad and my wife has to go back to her nursing career at Joe Arlington Cancer Center. We really needed this and appreciate the hospitality. THANKS.
