Great cabin on the river!! Perfect environment to get away and relax. The grounds were very well kept, the cabin was spotless and supplied us everything we needed to rest and relax. We BBQ'd dinner on our deck with the provided BBQ and walked off dinner on the river trail just outside our door. The owners are exceptionally nice and... More

We were surprised. Chama is a very small place out of the way place and the roadside is dotted with lodges and motels that don't look very appealing. The rooms at RBL are larger, fresher and more appealing than expected. Ours had new carpeting and fresh paint. The AC was very good and the room had a fan. It was... More

We spent 3 nights here last week and had a superb time. The lodge staff was very helpful & friendly, the cabin we stayed in was very comfortable and had all the amenities you'd want. The little town of Chama was quite charming with good restaurants and some nice shopping options. We would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed here many times and the room is always clean, the scenery is always relaxing, and the service is always good. We have yet to stay in a cabin. I believe each cabin has its own grill. There are 3 areas outside where you can light a fire and sit and relax at night. If you don't have... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in one of the rooms. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the customer service was really good. The location of the lodge, by the river, was great. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone traveling to or through Chama. We have already made tentative plans to stay there... More

We went to Chama for the 4th of July train, and we stayed at Chama River Bend Lodge. From the booking to check out, everything was great, a family effort. The room was large with 2 beds in it. It was so comfortable. After 7 nights on the road, this was the first time I able to make my oatmeal... More

We went on a family trip to Chama a week ago and stayed here. The place was nice, had great views, was spacious and very quiet and relaxing. We stayed in the cabins and it was pricey for what you get. The cabin itself is roomy & comfortable, however, one SMALL bathroom for a cabin that can accommodate 6 is... More

Winter offers excellent cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, a hot air balloon rally, and ice fishing on the Rio Chamita, as well as nearby El Vado and Heron lakes.
