| Eagle Eyrie is one
of Cloudcroft's most notable historic homes. Built in 1897 by Major William H.
Long of El Paso, the famous Manor on Grand Avenue has maintained its charm and
picturesque beauty for nearly 100 years. Some remodeling has occurred over the
years and conveniences added, but the basic rustic grandeur of the property
remains the same.
The massive stone fireplace, wide sweeping staircase, and beamed ceiling reflect the style of an era gone by. Functional antiques enhance the décor. The two large balconies, shaded by giant spruce trees, are inviting areas to relax.
Sleeping accommodations at Eagle Eyrie include 1 king room, 2 queen rooms, 1 dormer room with queen sleeper sofa, a bunk bed room and two queen sofa sleepers in the large family room. There are two full baths and a fully equipped kitchen.
Cable television, VCR, washer and dryer are provided in addition to the fully equipped kitchen.

Eagle Eyrie Vacation Manor
|Early Spring front of Eagle Eyrie vacation home approximately 3000 sq. ft.|
|Since 1897, when construction first began on Eagle Eyrie as a
hunting lodge and vacation getaway, thousands of people have visited, anxious
to spend some time away from their routine. This was one of the first homes
built in the newly formed village of Cloudcroft, New Mexico, nestled high in
the Sacramento Mountains among the pines and firs, and is registered as an
historic home today. While the village has grown and the home has received some
improvements to provide modern conveniences, Eagle Eyrie remains true to its
original intent. The trees still tower above the 3 story home, chipmunks,
squirrels, and their less appealing cousins, field mice, are still in
abundance. Raccoon, deer, and in rare cases a brown bear may be
all at no extra charge! The original Smokey Bear was rescued as a
cub after a forest fire in the Sacramentos in the early 1950's. Add to
this the sight and sound of the local forest bird population and the pine scent
in the air, and its no wonder that today many of Eagle Eyries
guests are repeat visitors, still anxious for a change of routine.
It is our goal to provide our guests with an authentic mountain hunting lodge experience without having to sacrifice the primary comforts of home. We have worked hard, at considerable expense, to make tasteful improvements while maintaining the vast majority of the original construction and charm. The old wavy window glass, occasional squeak in the original floors, and rustic (100 plus year old) winding staircase all contribute to a unique experience of a time gone by. Yet you will be able to soak in a claw foot tub, or use the one of a kind copper shower, and even turn up the thermostat when theres a chill in the air outside.
Rental demand is high, especially on holidays and weekends and because the home can accommodate as many as 16 guests. Reservations are taken and paid for on a first come-first served basis, whether for a family reunion of a dozen or an intimate getaway for two, and all other inquiries for that time slot are turned away. Therefore PAYMENT IS NON-REFUNDABLE. We will always work with our guests to make their Eagle Eyrie experience as enjoyable as possible. If you find you need something, feel free to call us immediately and we will do our best to help you as quickly as possible. Conveniently, there is a general store nearby. We supply basic towels, cookware and linens, but if you have particular favorites, feel free to bring your own. Keep in mind you will be in a somewhat remote small mountain village and some limitations may exist.
