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...

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...

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...

These folks are wonderful! My brother and his boys (ages 16 and 9) had been hiking the Continental Divide and at the end of week three my husband, their mom and I were to meet them at Cumbres Pass. They were ahead of schedule and would have had to wait 2 hours for us to pick them up. (We were...

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...

Came to chama with my 7 year old son to ride the cumbres and Toltec rail road, and picked this place to stay based on the reviews. It didn't disappoint. I would recommend to others as what seemed to be the best of the places to stay in Chama. Enjoy!

My family and I rented the cabins. I had a 1 bedroom plus loft. Everything was provided, including the coffee. On day 1, my room was very, very warm. The owner, Julio, was attentive and quickly responded. He opened windows, adjusted the air conditioner, and made the room comfortable. The following day Julio followed up with me to make sure...

Room was clean and staff was friendly and helpful. We were concerned about noise outside, but it abruptly quieted down around 10:00pm. Checkout was quick and painless. There is a deck overlooking Rio Chama which provided pleasant viewing of the river. Unfortunately other visitors had left a bit of a mess the previous night.

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. Summer promises mild but beautiful weather for an exciting ride aboard the Cumbres Toltec steam train, or camping, fishing, horseback riding, and excursions through nearby wildlife reserves. The Chama River Bend Lodge offers both rooms and cabins to accommodate your party's reservation needs. All accommodations are smoke-free and have a private entrance, private bath, air-conditioning, refrigerator, and a coffee maker. After a long, fun-filled day in the woods, relax under the stars in our outdoor hot tub, or enjoy s'mores and conversation cozied around a fire-pit near the river.
