We waited until last few weeks before Labor Day to look for a place that could accommodate 6 people plus 2 dogs and 2 cats. Luckily, Glenda with Noisy Waters contacted me about the Bears Den cabin they still had available! We took it! Wow..wow...wow!! Thats all we can say. We have been visiting Ruidos for years and never ventured into the Upper Canyon..all I can say is we have missed out! This ENTIRE area is what vacation is all about! The cabin was situated up high and surrounded by trees with a view from the deck that was gorgeous! It was sooo peaceful and quiet. All you could hear was the wind in the tall pine trees, the light rain falling in the forest, birds chirping and the rolling of the river over rocks down below! The cabin was super clean! I did bring my own coffee and food along with an electric skillet to cook breakfast in. The morning view outside the kitchen on the deck is amazing! We have found THE ONLY place we will ever stay when we come back. The only thing I wished was different was the pots and pans available to cook with. But I do cook a lot..even on vacation so I know now to bring extras. Other than that. .this place is paradise and I wish we never had to leave!

We decided to stay at Noisy Water Lodge (Canyon Retreat) after looking around for a nice cabin online for quite a while. When I called in to make the reservation, the man was very nice and answered all the questions I had. Upon arriving, both Mr. and Mrs. Duncan were very nice to us and made us feel very welcome. We really didn't have to contact them much during the week, as we didn't have any problems with the cabin. It was clean and very comfortable. We felt as if we were in our very own home away from home. I would like to mention that this is a two story cabin, with a beautiful stairway, but it can be a bit tiring, hahaha, although my 65 year old mother did just fine....other than that, this place was wonderful! If what you are looking for is a place out in the pines with wildlife and beautiful scenery, this is the place!!!! This place even had games and movies and well, we just didn't want to leave. Thanks Noisy Water....once again....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!
My husband and I stayed in Sky Cabin for a three day weekend. This is a lovely two story cabin. While there are other cabins around, we had total privacy. There are decks on two stories, with great views across the canyon. The decorator could not decide if this was a cowboy cabin, (rope baseboards, cowboy print sofa), ski lodge ( crossed antique ski poles over the door) or a country cabin ( chintz and calico) but the whole thing works. An inside gas fireplace was not needed in June, but looked like it would be cozy. There is also an outdoor fireplace and a gas grill. The outdoor hot tub for two is screened off for total privacy. The key opens the back door, off the kitchen. We thought a card table upstairs might be a good addition. There are lots of stairs, and we noted a lack of handrails. Bring backpacks and reusable grocery bags to carry your clothes and supplies. Binoculars would also be great, we saw a bear, many deer and an elk.
