We went in November, it was Beautiful, it had snowed. Once again Garth, Robin & Terry were so hospitable! They are the Best. We stayed in the Ponderosa this time, it was so cozy. We make it a habit to go every year & sometimes more than once a year, we've stayed in the Royal Aspen, which we love with... More

Neat log cabin , hammock a few yards away from the porch to take in the views & silence of nature! One of the most unique bathrooms I have ever encountered ! The shower has a rock formation that has a waterfall coming out of it . Or you can use the more conventional shower head . Wish we had... More

We went to Elk Mtn. Lodge for our 2nd. anniversary. My sweet husband asked for the anniversary package as a surprise to me. Oh my goodness what a beautiful and special surprise :) Robin really put the extra touches in our cabin for us !!

A lovely setting in the woods several miles from Jemez Springs, this two bedroom cabin is delightful. The hosts, Garth and Robin were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were amazing with offerings of breakfast burritos, oatmeal covered with fruits and nuts, and a beautiful yogurt and fruit filled parfait. There was free wifi but no phone service. The cabin was... More

Once completed, there will be a powder room and another complete bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. We're sorry that your experience was less than perfect -... More

There are many positives about this inn. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage which was large. Robin and Garth are friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed the breakfasts. There is a hot tub and plenty of seating on the various outside decks. My main complaint, and reason for the average rating, is because you don't have a true bathroom.... More

If you can't buy you're own log cabin, this is the next best thing! We stayed in the Santa Fe room, which was perfect for our needs, and even had a kitchenette and a bbq! Garth and Robin were super lovely and cooked up an amazing breakfast of burritos and pinon coffee. We also fell in love with their dog,... More

I want to rate this place low so that too many people won't go there,but I have to be honest. This place deserves more than five stars. My son said that he was going to rate them twice so they could get ten stars.

Garth and Robin Baskom are gracious and accommodating hosts, We had the pleasure of the Ponderosa room and it was an amazing, comfortable and beautiful accommodation. The vaulted ceilings and natural wood beams, walls and ceilings made for a homey and relaxing ambiance. The stone floors are heated and actually they provide the heating for the room in colder weather.... More
