Jim sets a high standard here in Chama. The rooms are beautiful and you are directly across the street from the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad station. The rate includes breakfast at the Boxcar restaurant and that is always delicious. The two gift shoppes underneath and across the street are filled with wonderful objects. Jim runs both. Good taste is easy to recognize!

We've visited Chama many times to ride the train, but by far this is the best place to stay in town. From the beautifully decorated room and bath, with attention to every detail, to the snacks to the turn-down service, the owners really paid attention to the little things that make a stay delightful. The gift shop below and the Trophy Elk Shoppe across the street are a must see, as well. Unexpected elegance in Northern New Mexico,

Chama was the last stop on a two week, eight state road trip. We actually found Dancing Wolf through tripadvisor and were intrigued by the very positive reviews and location. The room was truly exceptional in every way and Jim, the proprietor, provided for our every need without being intrusive. The décor puts the finest hotels to shame and gives one the impression that you’re a guest in private residence that is inviting, comfortable and very accommodating. Soft drinks, water and even airline bottle sized premium alcohol are complementary in the fridge. Snacks including very tasty fudge are also provided in room. The bed is large, with wonderful cotton sheets and down comforters. The shower is absolutely fantastic. The room is very relaxing, and then you step out onto the balcony to watch the sunrise or just sit out and reach a whole new level of tranquility. A walk downstairs and you are in the middle of Chama for shopping, local restaurants-pubs/bars and a short path down to the train station and yards. The first level of the building is the Red Foxx with a unique inventory including souvenirs, clothing, hats and even blankets. We will return to the Dancing Wolf, this time it will be our primary destination.

Room Tip: Only two rooms so you can't go wrong.

We enjoyed a fantastic stay here. As others have noted, the Rooms are gorgeous and tastefully decorated. The shower was wonderful with great water pressure, and the refreshments were oh so thoughtful and complimentary. We rode our bikes from Tres Piedras and had ourselves a little overnight stay on our way to Antocito and back to Tres Piedras. (Any cyclists out there? This is a terrific route with very little traffic. Message me if you want any details.) If I had known how lovely it was to stay at the Dancing Wolf, we would have booked two nights in Chama and rode out to Brazil cliffs on the second day. The scenery is gorgeous, but Jim, the owner, really made us feel welcome. He went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. I was gobsmacked. We had just left the Inn of the Five Graces in Santa Fe, or As I like to call it The Inn of the Five Zeros. Their staff could learn a LOT from Jim in terms of hotel management and hospitality.

We came to Chama to ride the Cumbres and Toltec and stayed 2 nights at the Dancing Wolf. It was pricier than most other accommodation in Chama, but we decided to try it. It was worth the extra money. The location is right near the C&TRR station with a view over the station and yard. We like trains and you wake up and have coffee or tea on your balcony listening to the locomotives steaming up and switching cars for the train. Magical! At night you can have a drink on the balcony watching deer wander around the station and the gentle hiss of steam from the locomotives overnight. The room is upmarket, well decorated with good quality bedding for a comfortable night's sleep. The minibar is included in the price, help yourself. No extra charges. The owner is super friendly and helpful.
We loved this place. We recommend it highly and plan to return and stay here again in the future.
