My future husband and I and our families stayed at the BW this summer over the week of July 7th - for our wedding. Not only is this the nicest hotel in town because of the rooms, view, amenities, location, pet friendly and breakfast but the management went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. We enjoyed the nightly... More

If you want to relax and be part of a great outdoor experience with fly fishing at your back door this is the place. Lots of local restaurants and variety of food. Riverfront rooms and a fire pit to sit at during the cool evenings.

Sounds like you might have had some luck with the fly fishing - the river has been looking like an aquarium for rainbow trout all summer. I'm also glad to hear you enjoyed the fire pit (I believe it is the best investment I've ever made). We'll keep it going until it gets too cold to enjoy. Thank you for... More

The hotel is amazing! More than that, Mike was incredible. He made your breakfast, welcomed you when you came in from shopping, gave suggestions for restaurants..etc... The atmosphere is so welcoming and comfortable. It is fun to sit out at night around the fire pit with other guests and hear the river and see the stars! It’s hard to find... More

Thank you Stephanie for that appraisal, and we look forward to seeing you at next year's Chili Cook-off. For those who haven't been to one, this is one of the biggest and most fun events of the year, and you definitely want to reserve it early as these dates sell out many months in advance. Thanks again! Sincerely, Courtney Henderson,... More

Very nice hotel. Will definitely stay here the next visit to Red River. Located on the river, next to the ski lift and in the middle of town. Hotel has been recently renovated, and is in top condition.

Best location, personal breakfast included, on Red River with trout being fished onsite, very clean, warm and friendly. Perfect for Red River. Try to get a room overlooking the river. Take the walk up the mountain behind the hotel however understand the elevation. It is hard to breathe. Great towels

I'm glad to hear you had a good time hiking around the hotel - a lot of guests don't realize it's OK to hike the ski area, and that the 1.5 million acres of the Carson National Forest are accessible right across the river. You do have to stop every now and then to smell the wildflowers, but I think... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the only franchised lodge in town, the River's Edge Lodge provides several amenities found nowhere else in Red River, such as air conditioning, free hot breakfast each morning, 42" HDTV's & HBO/SHO/250+ HD channels, and the assurance that we are meeting all of Best Western's increasingly stringent standards. We have the best location in town, with the Red River wrapping around the property's quiet, park-like setting (coming within 20 feet of some of the rooms). The Carson National Forest and a nature trail stretching for miles lie just across the river, and the Red River Ski Area's main Platinum chair lift is literally a few dozen steps away from our lobby's front door. The town's only grocery store and most of the best restaurants are similarly located within a very short walk. Come stay with the River's Edge and we will go the extra distance to make sure your every need is met. ... more   less
