Welcome to the Rio Colorado Cabins! We have 20 smoke-free cabins (1, 2 and 3 bedroom) located on 5 acres in the beautiful Sangre De Cristo Mountain town of Red River, New Mexico. For over 70 years our goal has been to help you and your family create a unique and memorable vacation experience.
We have a row of cabins facing our picnic/playground area, a row facing our ½ acre fishing pond and a row facing the Red River. All cabins have a front porch with patio chairs. No matter the time of day, you will see our guests enjoying the cool mountain air while relaxing on their cabin porch.
All the Amenities!
Even though these are rustic mountain cabins, they still have all the amenities you will need to have a comfortable and pleasant stay. All of our cabins include flat screen TVs in the living room offering Dish Network. Our current Dish package includes the America’s Top 120, Local Channels (Fox, NBC, CBS, ABC and CW), Stars and Encore Movies Channels and The NFL Network. We are also pleased to offer Free High Speed Wireless Internet. Each cabin is equipped with its own access point, providing coverage for almost all of our property. The kitchens include pots and pans, a set of dishes, silverware and utensils, dish soap, dish towels, a toaster, microwave, refrigerator, stove, coffee filters and a coffee pot. The beds are made and ready for your arrival. We provide bath towels, and bar soap for the bathrooms.
We have several charcoal and propane grills throughout our property for our guests to use. We provide the propane! There are also picnic tables placed near the grills. Many family picnics have taken place at those tables over the years. We also provide firewood for the cabins with wood burning fireplaces.
Our Fishing Pond
Our private pond is an excellent spot for anglers of all ages and skill sets. Whether you are a seasoned professional, an amateur or a beginner, we believe you will enjoy your fishing experience. Many of our guests have caught their very first fish in our pond! Most of them are children who get so excited when they bring that fish to the shore. And some have caught the biggest trout they’ve ever reeled in! When you catch a big one, bring it up to the office porch and we will weigh and measure your fish for you, as well as take your picture to post on our Facebook page.
We stock our pond weekly starting mid-May through the month of September with rainbow trout. For your convenience we now have a fish cleaning station at the far end of the pond. You do not need a New Mexico fishing license in order to fish in our pond. It is a private pond that is for our guests only. You are allowed to catch 5 fish per day per cabin. We do not allow catch and release. There is no extra charge for catching fish unless you exceed your limit for the day.
We do accept pets in all of our cabins except cabins 6 and 14 and The Cox Cabin. There is a $10.00 per night charge for up to 2 pets. If you are planning to bring a pet please read our pet policy agreement on our Pet Friendly page.
