“Peaceful and Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We recently stayed with Jerry and Marla we rented a two bedroom Two bath lodge rooms. We stayed for a week the place was clean quiet and comfortable we were there in late July. The area is great for outdoor activities. Hiking, Off road, four wheeling, Bike riding, Horse back riding definitely family fun and family friendly. Met another family there and we went off roading together. Great place to stay and meet people. Got up every morning and looked up in any direction and saw nothing but beautiful lush pine trees in all directions. Way to go Jerry and Marla we will be back.

The owners are fantastic. One of the best places we have stayed. They provide their own roasted coffee every morning in this cool relaxing room. We received some great advise on where we should visit for the remainder of our trip. Price was very reasonable. Rooms are average - nothing fancy. Red River is a really great town. I recommend.

We will be back.

For 3 years in a row we have chosen to stay with the fine folks at Golden Eagle Lodge. Such a nice, clean and relaxing place. Just the right distance from town - nice relaxing and inviting atmosphere. We love the rooms - we've stayed in both the Elk Ridge and the Golden Eagle. Love grilling outside our room - then sitting around the fire pits at night. Jerry and Marla are good people - we're always made to feel at home. Red River is a great destination and we'll go back again next year...and for the 4th year in a row we will stay here.

Room Tip: Room # 17 is pretty awesome!! If it's open - grab it!

We just spent four days (7/13/13) in Red River NM & we spent that time at the Golden Eagle Lodge. This facility is owned by Jerry & Marla Vowell. We feel as though they went out of their way in making our stay enjoyable. Our rooms were clean. The lighting was very good & the flat screen TV was very good & it worked. The kitchen had everything we needed and all the utensils were clean. We had no problems with the facility. We enjoyed coffee every morning in the Great Room. We will do our best to stay at the Golden Eagle Lodge on our next visit to Red River NM. I recommend the Golden Eagle Lodge to every one needing lodging while in Red River, NM

Room Tip: Any room, large enough for you or family, will be a good choice.

Great accommodations. More importantly, Jerry and Marla go way out of their way to accommodate their guests. We were getting married by the JP and Jerry turned out to be a minister and offered to marry us on property. We also need to fax some important paperwork on a day we would be away all day. They graciously took care of this for us. They were the kindest people we met in Red River. We will stay with them every time we are in Red River until we figure out a way to have our own home there.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, DO NOT STAY HERE! Unless you are a bed wetter then you'll enjoy the rubber mattress pads! INSULTING RULES POSTED ALL OVER THE PLACE! Worse than a Dorm, more rules than a Summer camp for kids!! The Golden Beagle Lodge proudly charges over $250.00/ night, and then warns to charge you fees if you don't properly mop the floor, place all towels in front of your room, and god forbid you use the wrong washcloth for makeup removal! The paper thin walls, single pane windows, and dated wood paneling will help you to easily get to know your neighbors next door. Red River is a great town, but has very limited lodging options! If you want quality lodging and good value for your vacation, keep looking. If you like being annoyed by numerous rules posted everywhere on the property with the concern of " additional charges", and also want to be responsible for cleaning your own room, visit the Golden Beagle!

Room Tip: Dated log cabin, all rooms are noisy, owners invasive behavior does not support a relaxing lodging e...

I recommend both the Golden Eagle Lodge and the Elk Ridge Lodge. I stayed next door at the Elk Ridge Lodge, also owned and managed by Jerry and Marla Vowell. It was very affordable, clean, comfortable and cozy. It was equipped with everything needed, and if I needed a bigger pan or pot, I borrowed one from the group facility kitchen and brought it back when I was through using it. If anything needed attention it was taken care of as soon as possible. Jerry and Marla set the standard for being courteous, friendly, answering any questions about their lodges and about Red River in general, and treating everyone who crosses their path with respect. The housekeeping staff are reliable, friendly, courteous and honest. The Elk Ridge is an older lodge, but I was very happy during my stay. I would come back in a heartbeat any time I am able.
