CLIFF RIVER SPRINGS - Nothing this far away has ever been so close. A new lodging alternative very close to Ojo Caliente, New Mexico, our 7 peaceful casitas are gathered around a central plaza and are located on 1,200 acres of high desert New Mexico along the Rio Ojo Caliente. The perfect place to visit with family and friends -- or for your personal retreat -- Cliff River Springs is just 1 hour north of Santa Fe, 50 minutes west of Taos, and 4 miles from the renowned Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa. Each of our delightful casitas has a full kitchen, private bath, and access to endless opportunities for photography, birding, painting and -- very important -- resting. Hiking trails abound in the canyons, mesas, and mile of river running through our land. A clear spring-fed pond makes for delightful swimming in summer. Land of unparalleled beauty, yours to explore! We look forward to meeting you on the land.

great place to unwind, hike, swim, at least it was in July, when the weather was perfect. The hostess/owner makes you feel welcome. Lots of wildlife. CRS is a hidden gem, and let's keep it that way. Only open during the spring and summer.

I had a fantastic stay at Cliff River Springs. Hope is an attentive host and her property is quiet and beautiful. Definitely recommend, and I hope I can go back. It's about a 15-20 minute drive from El Rito, less than 10 minutes to Ojo Caliente.
