My husband and I love Jemez - we love to hike the mountains, fish the streams and explore! As much as we love Jemez, I didn't think it was possible to love it even more. But thanks to Terry, Kody, and Elk Mountain Lodge, we do! My husband and our friends decided to take me there to help lift my spirits after losing my dear twin-brother just a couple of weeks earlier. I didn't think anything would help me, but I was wrong! Elk Mountain Lodge proved to be just what the doctor ordered. Beautiful cabin-style rooms, built by Terry (the owner) and decorated so beautifuly by his talented mother. After our visit, my husband and I decided that we wanted to move into Elk Mountain Lodge and live there with Terry and Kody forever =) The rooms are comfortable, romantic and mind soothing. We enjoyed cooking our dinner on the deck and invited Terry and Kody to join us. Terry is so down to earth and friendly - we enjoyed his company so much that he will definitely be our dinner guest during our next stay (which will be very soon). I think our visit proved to be too relaxing because I managed to forget my sun glasses, my cell phone and my husband's medication there! Unfortunately I remembered to go back for the non-essentuals (glasses & phone), but left the life-saving medication!! YIKES! When we got home, we called Terry to tell him we would be driving back the next day to pick up the medication... He informed us that he would be coming to Alb and voulenteered to bring the medication to us! Can you believe that - who does that these days?? Just adds to our wonderful experience at Elk Mountain Lodge and it shows what kind of person Terry is. Now I'm not voulenteering Terry to make special trips with your forgotten belongings (sorry Terry), so don't get too relaxed and forget your stuff too! Anyway, I am looking forward to going back! I will bring treats for Mr. Kody because I absolutely love him. I strongly recommend Elk Mountain Lodge to anyone who needs to relax and enjoy themselves. You won't regret it and you will most likely become an Elk Mountain Lodge frequent guest, like us. Thank you, Terry, Kody and Elk Mountain Lodge - I REALLY needed that!
