“Relax by the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Needing a quick get away, but only a weekend trip, my husband and I discovered Riverside Meadows on Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor has been remarkable in assisting in wonderful places to stay, but this stay with Fritz and Paula topped them all! Peaceful surroundings with all the comforts of home (and some, better). Fritz is a true craftsman and the care and thought that was involved in building this wonderful get away is apparent from the minute you drive on to the property. When we returned from dinner, Fritz and Paula offered to start a fire in their fire pit. Reflaxing in front of that roaring fire, next to the Rio Grande river, reflecting the moon, was exactly what we needed. Best nights sleep in a long time. Very clean, comfy cabin and bed. Fritz and Paula are excellent hosts and very engaging. We look forward to returning to Riverside Meadows to melt into the surroundings and leave the city behind.

We recently visited South Fork and are so glad that we chose to stay at Riverside Meadows. Fritz and Paula are wonderful and friendly hosts and the cabin was immaculate and very comfortable. The property is also very nice -- wooded and adjacent to the Rio Grande. We will definitely stay again the next time we're in South Fork.

Riverside Meadows is a lovely place. It's definitely log cabin, but not what you might expect. Very chic and thoughtful design and interior, surrounded by the most beautiful landscape imaginable. The host, Fritz, is generous with time and suggestions, and very entertaining and friendly. Altogether a delightful visit.

Room Tip: One cabin has a kitchen, the other two have refrigerator and coffee maker.

I have stayed in South Fork before and been unhappy with the lodging choices, despite loving the area. We won't have that problem anymore, as we love Riverside Meadows. Our room is beautiful and right next to the river, it is roaring by outside right now. The owners built everything themselves and you can really tell. It is a gorgeous spot and very friendly. Loved the campfire after dark. Great fishing spot too. I plan to go wading in the morning for rainbows.
