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

Stayed here for one night in June 2014 with two big dogs. Very nice grounds and units. I stayed in a cabin and was very happy with it. New owners bought this motel this year and I did not experience any of the problems cited here from previous years. I love that it is right on the Chama Rivert with... More

My family and I caught total of 17 fish in three days. And used the charcoal grill provided to cook them up fresh. It... More

My family has stayed here in the past and the lodge was not so great. The new owners were cleaning up and getting things looking good! They were very welcoming and pleasant to talk to. We will definitely stay here again! Can't wait to come back!

We recently spent a weekend and we loved it! Our cabin was rustic and cute and we felt comfortable in it right away. And it was very clean. The location of the place can't be beat, with the river running right along the property. Both mornings we woke up and saw deer roaming around the area which was a great... More

Coffee in front of cabin in the morning while watching deers graze about 20 feet away! Can't wait to go back next month and stay again. Easy 3 hour... More

We stayed in one of the cabins a few days ago and should have checked out the cabin before paying. The cabin had a gas odor, probably from the gas stove. We opened the windows but it was still always present. The place is really dated and could use a good deep cleaning. The water in the shower also had... More

As the new owners of the Elkhorn Lodge it is regrettable to us that you did not enjoy your stay. . We have taken your comments seriously. As mentioned on arrival we always have coffee in the office seven days a week from 7:00 am to 11:00 am. Most of the people who stay in the cabins are settling in... More
