I give this Lodge 4 stars, but please don't expect a 4 star resort. It is not. However, it is exactly what I wanted and expected it to be. Very friendly front desk/owners (and their adorable grandson), basic but comfortable room, plenty of parking, and a restaurant right next door. The Lodge also has a nice walkway along the Chama...

Stayed two nights so we wouldn't have to drive up early and get home late from the Cumbres and Toltec Steam Railroad. It was affordable. Only a few minutes drive from the train station. There was a great little restaurant next door for great home made breakfasts. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean. Nice porch to sit outside... More

First the Good. The Lodge consists of separate cabins and also blocks of rooms in a single building spread over a large property right on the Rio Chama which is a small stream by eastern standards but substantial by New Mexico standards. This is an historic property which is to say that it's been around for a long time. The... More

Well first of all thanks for taking the time to write a review. I just wanted to let you know your impressions are incorrect as to the minimal maintenance and few or no improvements to the Elkhorn.

Don't be expecting a Holiday Inn Express in Chama. It's a quaint little town of about 1,500 in the summer and 1,000 the rest of the year. The Elkhorn Lodge now open year round as this area is popular not only for the C &TS railroad but fall foliage and hunting as well. There are cabins with different combinations of... More

Thanks for your review, we appreciate it when customers take the time to do this. Yep, no Holiday Inn Express because the Elkhorn Lodge is one of a kind with lots of character, charm and a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. It is beautiful here in the fall, worth another road trip from Texas. Hope to see you again. Linda More

I felt like I was back in the 50's or 60's in a movie! They had cabins, rooms and the mobile home we stayed in. We were right on the river. Linda and Arthur, the owners, were wonderful! My boys fished, roasted marshmallows, went for walks and played baseball! Perfect for families!

What a nice, friendly place. We stayed in a cabin type room a one bedroom place. They kept most everything including the appliances antique looking, but in good working order.

We stopped in Chama enroute from Colorado to Texas. There are 3 lodging options that boast cabins and "on the river". Just be aware that Chama is rural and rustic with very few cafes and 2 stores. The Elkhorn staff were very nice and it is family run. The cabins seemed clean. However, some cabins have old upholstered furniture sitting... More
