I have been staying at the Elk Horn Lodge for business off and on the past few months. Elk Horn Lodge is quiet, clean, well-priced, and the owners are on site and great people. In the mornings I like to have a cup of coffee down by the Chama River, which is right behind the cabins. In the evenings you... More

We really enjoyed staying here. We stayed in a rustic cabin with a king size bed, a kitchen and a gas heater that looked like a fireplace. The cabin was clean and cozy, and the location along the river can't be beat. The owners were very friendly and the service was great. Will definitely be back in the summer!

The Elkhorn Lodge is a real treat! Having stayed in all types of lodging throughout the great state of New Mexico and beyond, my time at the Elkhorn was truly refreshing! Set right along the banks of the Rio Chama, the Elkhorn's cabins are not only beautiful but functional as well! The three cabins I saw all came fully furnished... More

I travel nearly year round for work, so I am somewhat of an expert on hotels and lodging. So when I say the Elkhorn Lodge has been one of the best places I have ever stayed, you can TRUST ME!!

We came to Chama to ride the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, and little did we know we would find such a gem with the Elkhorn Lodge! Our cabin, Horsin' Around, was the perfect cozy size for a couple! The owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating, and went out of their way to make you feel safe and at home.... More

Stayed here last night Oct 23, 2014. Came in to the lobby late and tired. Was greeted with a smile and fair price. Room was nice; older, but charming. The next morning, headed to the lobby for some coffee, and also got some great fishing advise!

We didn't have any experience with former owners but the new owners are great! Our first stay , in May, was shortened by a bit of an emergency but we came back in August to celebrate my 80th birthday. We had reserved the same cabin a short distance from the river and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cabin... More

We stayed in one of the cabins but it faced the main road and it was very loud which cut down on the "charm" significantly. The new owners are very nice and very enthusiastic and I'm sure they have made some upgrades to the property but they have a way to go. The cabin we stayed in had a refrigerator... More

Stayed 2 nights and slept wonderfully with open windows falling asleep to gentle rain and feeling the cool, fresh mountain breeze. Awoke to beautiful songs of birds and enjoyed walking lodge property as well as Elkhorn's path along Rio Chama and observing birds and wildlife. New owners are welcoming, friendly and attentive. They have made a number of improvements to... More
