The River Bend Lodge is on the west side of the highway just south of the main part of Chama at an altitude of 7860 feet. The rooms are in a long row with door that open to porch and the outside world. Each room has a screen door, small fridge, microwave, TV, ceiling fan, air conditioner, and portable electric heater. Our room had a shower but no tub. They also have a few stand-alone cabins.
The Wi-Fi worked fine. The staff was very pleasant. There is coffee in the office and a small coffee maker in the room. There is a large grass area on the south side of the lodge across from the room with a picnic table. The lodge has metal deer and bison statues next to the highway. There is no complimentary breakfast. We ate at Fina’s Diner south of the lodge.
We stayed here the night before our train ride.
