Five us of stayed here over Christmas 2022: two parents, three adult sons... plus a family dog. Dan was easy to communicate with, set out clear expectations/ directions, and very welcoming. Lodging was clean, quiet, comfortable, and in a spectacular setting. We self-catered food and made good use of the fridge and microwave. The lodge is an easy drive or bicycle ride to hiking/ biking in the Chiricahua and Peloncillo Mountains. Highly recommend.
After seeing pictures of Mountain Valley Lodge, I came all the way down from Minnesota just to see it for myself, and I was not disappointed! I LOVE this place. I stayed in the awesome cowboy room. It was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It wasn’t just a room; it was a studio apartment and truly felt like a home. I wish I could have stayed for a month. If you need to relax and just chill, this is the place. It is only a few minutes away from the eastern side of the Chiricahua Mountains, which are beautiful. Just staying “home,” you can relax on your own patio table and chairs, or you can chill by the fish pond. It is SO peaceful here. I would go back in a heartbeat.
We had just visited Johnny Ringos grave, the Chiricahua Monument, and Fort Bowie where we encountered 40 miles of unpaved roads. Wanting a comfortable hotel before the long drive along the border to El Paso, we lodged at the Mountain Valley Inn - and, wow, did we luck out. We slept soundly in the cozy southwestern decorated Cowboy cottage and awoke among stunning peaks. It's pretty casual - no e-confirmation when reserving a room but you get an e-receipt. Great experience. Would visit Dan again if we return that way.
Rooms & RV space for rent here. We stayed in our RV with a full hookup at a very reasonable price. Lots of character with artifacts collected over the years adorn the facility. The lighting at night is a light show of color - we were impressed. The best part is the location - only 15 minutes away from superb bird watching in and near the Coronado National Forest. Also drove our tow vehicle over the dirt Pinery Canyon Road to the west side and returned. Vehicle length restricted to 41 feet. Road too rough for a motorhome but scenic - especially on the return east. Slow driving takes about two hours one way. No gas for sale in Rodeo, but Animas has 24 hour availability.
We made the Cowboy Room our home while we were birding in the Chiricahua's. Our room was very quaint, cozy, clean, and had air conditioning that actually kept the room cool! The room lives up to it's name with a western theme. Dan, the innkeeper was very accommodating and made our stay pleasant.
What a great find. We rented a 2 bedroom cottage that was clean, well stocked with dishes, pots & pans, towels....everything you need. Quiet with a nice charcoal BBQ, patio and friendly neighbors also stay here. Boyfriend and I needed to get away and spend some quiet relaxing time and this served the bill. Portal is close by and worth a visit. Lovely country and camping by Portal. Great store and Cafe in Portal as well, There is a small store en route to Portal with pizza, ice cream, beer and sodas as well as some groceries and other types of served food items. Very friendly help works there with lots of local info..
I had a pleasant stay at Mt. Valley Lodge RV park with my 17’ trailer. Owner is very accommodating and it is convenient. The park is small and as indicated on website, suitable for smaller rigs. Great WiFi.
A very quaint place in the middle of nowhere. This nowhere area is full of wonderful treasure sites. The scenery is spectacular.We enjoyed a week's stay in the comfortable Cowboy room. This is a "do again" trip.
We stayed at Mountain Valley Lodge Rodeo, New Mexico. It was called the Cowboy Room. A nice place very well decorated, very cozy. We had a fridge and microwave with toaster and coffee pot dishes and all. If a person stay there for a week they would have a good relaxing time. You have your own backyard. The owner is very pleasant. We only stayed one night. We were only passing through. I recommend this place No. 1. If we ever take that road again, we would stay there for sure.
We stopped for 2 nights to see the East side of the Chirachuhas. We had the cowboy room which is very cute, King sized bed, micowave and fridge, TV that only can play DVD's which they will loan you. I knew about this, so planned ahead with meals that can be prepared in the microwave. First night was left over Thanksgiving dinner. We had hard boiled eggs and toast for breakfast and I packed picnic lunches. Other than the Portal cafe there isn't anywhere to eat. It is a funky place but worth the stay.
