“Quiet and charming”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

If you are looking for a comfy cabin, stay here. If you want everything perfect and sterile, stay at one of the chains. Our 2 bedroom cabin was great for a weekend getaway. A couple things to make the experience a bit easier: take extra paper plates, plastic utensils and if you are going to do much cooking your favorite skillet and pot. There is dishware and cooking items furnished but just the minimum.

To parents: If you have small children the wood burning stove would be downright dangerous as it gets very hot on the outside. That is how it works. Yes, there is warning to keep children away, but where is the fun in that? Nothing to be done about it. If I had small kids (mine are grown - yea!!) I would not have enjoyed worrying all weekend that one of them would get a bad burn.

We didn't get to meet the owners. Hopefully next time.

We stayed in a two bedroom cabin and it was perfect! The kitchen was fully furnished which was great because we were able to cook meals at the cabin. Everything was super clean and the beds super comfy. The location is within walking distance to the little grocery store in town, the restaurants, and the gift shops. We had an absolutely wonderful time and can't wait for our next visit! We will definitely be staying at 3 Bears Lodge!

They were clean, great beds, and the hospitality of the owners goes above and beyond! The snores at night are an incredible touch for the younger kids as well as the older ones! We always stay here when we go to Red River!!

I continue to rave about this place, but the raves are well-placed. Love the locale, love the cabins, and love Chris and Debbie. /They always act as though I'm the guest they were waiting to see. every time. Like I'm family. I don't expect Hyatt-slick when I stay here and thankfully, that's not what I get. What I get is fun and clean and relaxing and easy. Northern New Mexico at its best.

My family came to Red River, NM to attend Octoberfest and take in the mountains. It was my first time staying at Three Bears and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have stayed all over NM and Three Bears is true to the NM vibe and rustic comfort I've come to enjoy. The owners are incredibly friendly and hard working. The place was very clean and they were very accommodating..

Room Tip: Splurge on the 2 bedroom cabin, its worth it if there's more than just 2 people

Went up for Oktoberfest 2013. Stayed two nights. Price was good. Floors were slanted in one bedroom, so much so, that our two daughters had to flip around on the second night, with their heads at the foot of the bed. Beds were too small for two people and the mattresses too soft. Simple locks on doors are a pain to open at times, especially for someone with arthritis. Kitchen cabinets were rigged to stay shut. Tons of cobwebs in the corners of the ceilings. First night, had nothing to start a fire with in the wood stove. Had to go to the market to get matches and fire starter. Utensils were small and mismatched. Overall, there was no attention to detail. Walls were paper thin on the south side; we could hear conversations pretty decently. We'll never stay there again with too many other nicer places to stay in town.

Room Tip: Not much good to say about them. Owners are very nice, though.

3BearsLodgeRR, Owner at Three Bears Lodge, responded to this review, October 15, 2013
With regard to the previous review, we are sorry Abqcrutch did not have a satisfactory experience in our mountain cabins. We would, however, like to address some of the points in the review:

1. We are happy that the price/value was considered to be good.
2. The beds, which were considered to be too small, are new queen beds as advertised. Manufactured by Serta.
3. The cabins each have a wood burning fireplace/stove (in addition to gas heat). Unlimited firewood, fire starters, and matches are available free of charge.
4. We strive to give our guest an authentic mountain cabin experience. Our cabins are traditional "Red River" with logs on the outside and knotty pine on the inside. Recent upgrades include - new beds/bedding, new kitchen appliances, new futons, remodeled bathrooms, flat screen television with satellite, and wifi.

We would like to thank Abqcrutch for their input as we continue to strive to improve the guest experience at Three Bears Lodge.

We stayed in cabin #5 for four nights. The location was great for walking to restaurants, hiking, and shopping in Red River. We enjoyed making friends with the owners and persons staying near our cabin. It was a very peaceful setting, close to the river and a great view of the mountains. We loved our stay, the friendly folks, the gathering around the pit fire and look forward to a return trip to Three Bears Lodge. Thanks for the hospitality! Gene & Sheryl, McPherson, KS
