We have stayed at many different places in Red River and The Rio Colorado Lodge is a great place to stay. Friendly people and wonderful cabins. I recommend this place. You can fish in the pond that they stock. We like to stay in the cabin by the river. The fireplaces are wonderful and they have BBQ pits if you... More

Rio Colorado is a cabin type business in Red River, New Mexico. We stayed in cabin #24. It has been remodeled for the most part. The fireplace is covered with river rock which looks really nice. The fishing pond was stocked every Wednesday. The remodeling doesn't appear to cover the couch or the mattress for the bed. My wife and... More

This was the best place to stay, very nice people running it and the accomodations were great. There was private pond for fishing if you choose to, we didnt fish but enjoyed sitting on our deck and... More

I stayed in cabin 14 which was located adjacent to the fishing pond, which was frozen in February, overlooking the Red river. I totally enjoyed the remodeled cabins which were equipped with a full kitchen including a microwave, coffee maker, a full size refrigerator, and a complete set of pots, pans, and dishes. This cabin has a sleeping loft rather... More

Me and my friends stayed in Cabin 16 from January 11-15 and it was just perfect. It was a 5 minute walk to the copper lift so no waking up 2 hours early for snowboarding. The cabin was nice and cozy. You could heat it up with the good ole fireplace or the space heater. Whichever you prefer! And the... More

We stayed in Cabin 21 from 12/22 through 12/27, and once again we had an excellent stay at the Rio Colorado. The cabin is one of two that are located right at the base of the mountain. You have to cross the Red River on a small bridge but these two cabins are very quiet and secluded. Cabin 21 has... More

We have always (!) stayed at Rio Colorado Lodge every year for 9+ days. The cabins are rustic, but remodeled & modernized. Rustic fits this wonderful mountain town! Brian & Tawnya and their staff are VERY helpful, very knowledgeable about the area. My husband fell the 2nd day we were there, and tore 2 tendons & his rotator cuff, so... More
