We were a little nervous about traveling during Covid-19. We stayed at Vista Del Rio Lodge in a room with 2 queen beds. The accommodations were wonderful. This is one of the cleanest places Ive ever stayed. The owner Anna was awesome. We have a service dog and she accommodated us with no trouble at all. It was quite, beautiful and the screen door allowed us the security of locking while also allowing us to enjoy the clean crisp fall evening. We will definitely be back.

Hotel's Favorite
The room was clean and inviting, and very well-located. The internet worked great, and we took a nice walk by the river. The manager at the front desk was helpful and welcoming. We had a wonderful meal at the High Country, but I guess it's no longer there.

I contacted Anna months before our planned stay in Chama, to ride the Cumbres Toltec Scenic RailRoad. She was extremely gracious and courteous, and as we were two couples from different states, she was very helpful in getting both our reservations correct. When we checked in, the rooms really exceeded our expectations!! Very clean, up to date, very quiet, yet close to everything in town. Anna was as gracious in person as she was over the phone. As the case in all of NM, Anna and her staff wore face masks. Also the hotel did have a very nice area in the back for picnicking and grilling.

I was with a group of Indian riders and we’d been touring for a week. We stopped here at dinner time unannounced and without reservations. We were fortunate to get their last 4 rooms. I have to say.... they did everything right here. It was a great little lodge and a very comfortable stay. Reasonably priced as well. And they had the absolute best towels I’ve ever had at a hotel. The owners also provided special towels for us to use on the bikes.... that was a first and a very nice touch. If I’m ever in Chama again, I’ll stay here. I highly recommend it!
