Over priced and under maintained. Our door would hardly lock. The place has seen much better days and dates from the 50s. The owners / care takers are nice but need to work on the place or charge less or something else. It was only just adequate lodging for the night. We were ready to leave in when daylight came.

The cabin was rustic, of adequate size, comfortable, and reasonable. The owners were friendly and helpful. There was a family owned restaurant adjacent to the property and the food was good and reasonable. We ate dinner and breakfast.p we walked along the Chama river, but the trail was somewhat short, maybe 100 yards. We saw three deer on the property.

A comfortable bed in a sweet log cabin by a river after a long day on the road. The owners were friendly and kind and the place exuded the owner's love for it. Two women were sitting peacefully on the front porch of their cabin when I arrived enjoying soft conversation and gentle laughter. The next getting morning, instead of...

We were in Room #17 in one of the log cabin motel rooms. It was a nice, basic room with nice knotty pine paneling. We had 2 queen beds with cute Southwestern comforters. It was a cold night so we turned on the old style wall heater and the room was warm in a short time. The bathroom was clean;...

We loved this cozy Lodge. The owners were incredible we could not stay an extra night because they were booked but did give us a late check out so we could hike in the morning. Our room was next to hot tub which was great! We were close to the Elkhorn restaurant so we could walk there for dinner and...

I stayed in this lodge with my parents long, long ago. Our room was clean and spacious. We were in the motel section. The TV channels did not work well, nor did the wifi. That being said, we happily did without them anyway. The lodge is on the Chama river. There is a beautiful path along the river on Lodge...

We are all so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We work hard to make the Elkhorn Lodge Chama a comfortable and welcoming destination. I am glad that the lack of strong WiFi and TV did not hinder your enjoyment of being in the beautiful Chama Valley. Hope you will come back again. Linda

I give this Lodge 4 stars, but please don't expect a 4 star resort. It is not. However, it is exactly what I wanted and expected it to be. Very friendly front desk/owners (and their adorable grandson), basic but comfortable room, plenty of parking, and a restaurant right next door. The Lodge also has a nice walkway along the Chama...

Stayed two nights so we wouldn't have to drive up early and get home late from the Cumbres and Toltec Steam Railroad. It was affordable. Only a few minutes drive from the train station. There was a great little restaurant next door for great home made breakfasts. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean. Nice porch to sit outside...

First the Good. The Lodge consists of separate cabins and also blocks of rooms in a single building spread over a large property right on the Rio Chama which is a small stream by eastern standards but substantial by New Mexico standards. This is an historic property which is to say that it's been around for a long time. The...

Well first of all thanks for taking the time to write a review. I just wanted to let you know your impressions are incorrect as to the minimal maintenance and few or no improvements to the Elkhorn. Yes Wi-Fi is not good up here in the summer time when there are a few hundred or more extra people in town...

Don't be expecting a Holiday Inn Express in Chama. It's a quaint little town of about 1,500 in the summer and 1,000 the rest of the year. The Elkhorn Lodge now open year round as this area is popular not only for the C &TS railroad but fall foliage and hunting as well. There are cabins with different combinations of...

Thanks for your review, we appreciate it when customers take the time to do this. Yep, no Holiday Inn Express because the Elkhorn Lodge is one of a kind with lots of character, charm and a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. It is beautiful here in the fall, worth another road trip from Texas. Hope to see you again. Linda
