“Annual Family Visit”

Excellent accommodations!!! We have stayed with Copper King Lodge for the past few years and found it to be consistently clean, quiet, and enjoyable. The lodge is centrally located to all things within the town of Red River.

Clean. My #1 priority. Friendly, accommodating staff. Been staying here about 5 yrs.. These are cabin type units. A make your own bed kind of place (which I prefer) but clean towels and washcloths, dish cloths, etc. brought everyday. This is a walking town with good shops and restaurants within walking distance, but Copper King is down by the river, off main street, which
reduces traffic noise. Brought our grandsons who LOVE it. Especially, the back yard with swings, picnic tables and deer, ducks and birds coming up on the lawn. Family friendly but also pleasant for a couple getaway. Red River has a lot to offer, but assuming you have checked that out, this review is of Copper King Lodge and you won't find a cleaner, more convenient place to stay. Stay here. BTW: New queen mattresses! Comfy!

The rental cabin was clean with up to date appliances. Our rental was next to the river and mountainside..absolutely beautiful! The office staff and housecleaning staff were very polite and friendly. We were very comfortable and sure to return soon.

Room Tip: Rooms with a river view are nice. The Lodge also rents 2-3 bedroom cabins with living area and full...

My husband and I have stayed at the Copper King Lodge in Red River, NM every year for the last 5 years, during the Red River Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally. We've stayed at almost every other hotel in town over the last 17 years, but have found the Copper King to suit us best. We rent a suite during our 3 or 4 day stay that consists of a full kitchen, living room with river rock gas fireplace, full bath and separate bedroom with two queen sized beds. This suite also has an adjoining 2nd bedroom available, if you have a larger group. We normally arrive in town, stock the kitchen, and settle in for a great weekend in a beautiful setting. But, what makes this Lodge special is the staff, starting with the little couple that maintains the rooms for the owners. They are wonderful, caring people who greet us happily ever year. The Lodge is family owned and well cared for. We are there during a particularly "wild weekend" each year, given the attendees of the Rally - but the Copper King is a respite in the craziness, where you can settle in and relax, if you want. There are rules at the Copper King, and loud, raucous behavior isn't tolerated, but by having these rules, the guests are assured a good night's sleep in peaceful surroundings. You can always take a walk to main street to join in the festivities, but it's nice to be able to get away from it as well. The location is perfect, just one street off of main, but close to everything that is going on, as well as proximity to the river. During the Rally, the prices are high - but are more reasonable other times of the year. Visit the Copper King, it is the essence of all that is good about Red River, NM.

Room Tip: Small cabins, and motel type rooms and suites are available. 2nd floor rooms are a bit quieter.

My family has stayed at Copper King Lodge every year for the past three years for our annual family ski trip to Red River Ski Area. We stay in a two bedroom cabin-suite with full kitchen. Because of it's location off of Main Street, it's quiet and peaceful, and very conveniently located next to the Copper Chair Lift—making skiing on and off the mountain a breeze. The river runs just behind the property and the forest just beyond. Deer are also often seen grazing nearby and on the property. The owners and staff are always friendly and accommodating. The internet can be spotty, but that's true pretty much everywhere in Red River except at the conference center and library.

Room Tip: Book one of the suites with the back door facing the river and mountain.

My wife and I stayed in an efficiency unit at Copper King Lodge in mid March 2013. The rate was reasonable and competitive, even for spring break. The room had a reserved parking spot directly infront of the room which was very convienient. The room was very nice, well layed out for two people. The room, kitchen, and bathroom were very clean. The lodge had a nice bbq area and hot tub. Proximity to the copper chair lift is very convienient and if you need to hit to bunny slops or come down an easy trail, park at the other main lift houses. My wife and I loved staying in this room and will be back every year as long as standards remain high.

My friend Mike and I grew up skiing in Colorado in the 80's and hadn't seen each other in about 10 years so we decided to plan a ski trip at Red River New Mexico Ski Area. We booked a room at the Copper King Lodge and it was perfect!! The owners were very friendly, the rooms were very clean and the lift was RIGHT OUTSIDE THE BACK DOOR!!!!! I am already planning on taking my family back in Februray of 2014. Thanks again Copper King see ya next year!!!

Room Tip: Stay on the river side of the lodge to see the wildlife. Mule deer will eat out of your hand.
