Best part about the Elkhorn for me was the friendly staff and nice setting. I checked in on an unusually cool day in May and couldn't seem to coax any warmth out of the baseboard heaters. When I turned on the bathtub I flushed out several gallons of rusty water before it cleared up. Television is old style tube with...

A group of us recently stayed at the Elk Horn Lodge in Chama before our river trip down the Chama River. The lodge is on the river, clean, comfortable and charming. The lodge is reasonable priced. The family owned and operated lodge has a western personality. Thanks for your hospitality and flexibility with our rafts and trailers too!

This is a very well-maintained old school lodge right on the Rio Chama. Very large with nice amenities. Pet friendly (for $15).Close to town with a very good restaurant (not affiliated) named the Elkhorn Café, within walking distance. Lots of nice seating on the river, with a pavilion, fire-pit and walking trails. Close to town, but outside and away from...

The elkhorn lodge was the perfect place to retire after a long night on the road! One of the best places I've stayed at thus far in the gorgeous mountains of New Mexico! The beds are beyond comfortable, warm, the cabin is clean, and it is along the Rio Chama river where you can enjoy a bonfire at your pleasure....

I have been staying at Elkhorn Lodge since July 2014. Linda and Albert had recently assumed ownership and management May 2014. Every time I visit I am amazed at the renovations and improvements. During my most recent stay I was in a remodeled room with a new king bed. Very comfortable and immaculately clean. It is a lovely property on...

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.

Nsblinda, Owner at Elkhorn Lodge Chama, responded to this review

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Elkhorn Lodge, Chama. Yes, this lodge does date back to the 50s and as such does not have the bells and whistles that you might find at a more modern accommodation. But our rooms are clean and they are maintained so that everyone enjoys their visit. Thanks for taking the time...

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.

Nsblinda, Owner at Elkhorn Lodge Chama, responded to this review

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Just so you know the trail along the Chama river continues for a few miles to the south. Right now we have 8 turkeys living on the property. It is a real treat to see them wondering around the grounds. I hope you will visit us again. Thank you for your review. Linda

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...
