My son and I were looking for a place to stay in Chama for a recent turkey hunt/fishing trip. The Chama River Bend Lodge fit the bill perfectly. The room was spotless and nicely appointed and the staff are outstanding people. I stayed in another place in Chama last year because the River Bend was booked. In the future, this...

Challenged with finding a place to stay after booking a last-minute, Spring snowmobile trip at Cumbres Adventure Tours, we needed at least two beds to accommodate me, my wife and my 24 year old daughter. A second bedroom would have been perfect in our attempt to avoid renting an additional room. A cabin at Chama River Bend Lodge provided the...

I have stayed here a few times in the last 4/5 years and have a enjoyed it every time. I stay all over northern New Mexico for work and for fun (when possible) and price wise are a lot cheaper in comparison.

I really enjoy staying here! I stayed here once years ago when I was young with my parents so my husband and I chose to stay here when we came back to go snowmobiling. The staff is so kind and the cabins and grounds are so cute! The cabins are very cozy, clean, and quiet. The owners were kind enough...

My husband and I stayed six days at the Chama River Bend Lodge. We enjoyed the cozy cabin while watching and playing in the snow. Cabin was clean, and the bed was comfortable. Sandra and DeAnn were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

This little place is darling, but for us somewhat disappointing. Like so many others we stayed overnight in Chama to ride the train this past October. The reviews for the River Bend Lodge were good on tripadvisor, so we stopped in to make a reservation. We stayed in the motel, not a cabin. Pros... parking right by front door very...

We stayed one night before taking a fall trip on the Cumbres and Toltec RR. The Lodge was clean, nice, had everything you needed. Owners were very friendly. If I was staying longer in Chama I would recommend this location over others. Also check for coupons on renting room and taking the Cumbres RR trip.

Super clean, well appointed, no noise, and a very friendly owner. Nice walk on property to the waer and would even rent fishing gear. We asked about a great breakfast spot and he suggested two. My husband and I chose Fina's Diner down the road and was not disappointed. Breakfast burritos were excellent and everything Homemade! No one should leave...

There aren't many places to stay in Chama. There are no chain hotels. This place is very nice looking on the outside, however, the inside needed a little help. The deadbolt worked very hard and the safety chain was broken. The sheets and blankets had holes in them and the towels were stained. The tub had a depression in it...

The office was well kept and clean with a nice gift shop and helpful staff. The cabin was quiet, clean, affordable and very comfortable. Plenty of towels and amenities! The grounds are very inviting and offer several places to sit along the river or by the fire pits. We did not fish but the opportunity is certainly there! It's a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Here at the Chama River Bend Lodge we have been building relationships since 1989! Nestled on a spacious five-acre partial on the banks of the Chama River, you will find breathtaking views of the San Juan mountain range and Chama Peak. We are conveniently located to meet your recreational, sight seeing, camping, and vacation needs in every season. 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. We hope you will choose the Chama River Bend Lodge as your next destination for vacation, family reunions, group gatherings, a weekend getaway, a wedding or any special occasion--we sincerely look forward to serving you.
