Historic Burro Street

Burro Street is home to some of the most historic buildings in Cloudcroft. Today these buildings house a hotel, a couple of retsaurants, a nice bar or two and a variety of shops. It seemed like a nice place to hang out and the people were fairly friendly.

The Lodge

Another historic building is The Lodge. The Lodge was built by the Alamagordo and Sacremento Railroad in 1899. It is still a great destination with a spa, a golf course, a fine restaurant, and nice accomodations. There are also reports the place is haunted by a ghost of a chambermaid named "Rebecca" that appears with bright red hair and blue eyes.

Sunspot and Apache Point

An interesting side trip from Cloudcroft is going up New Mexico Highways 130 and 6563 to Apache Point and Sunspot. Sunspot and Apache Point both have a variety of types of telescopes to observe various phenomena about the sun and other parts of the universe. You can only walk through the grounds at Apache Point; but there are open buildings and a nice museum at Sunspot.
