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

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 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!
