Red River townhome description

The owners of this property also own Claimjumper 8, which is also in Red River, and is VRBO listing #102028, as well as the Loft at Southgate next to the A&M campus in College Station, Texas, which is VRBO listing #100975. This property was just purchased in October of 2010, as a quiet hideaway in the mountains, which is still in the town. It offers some of the best views overlooking the town in all of Red River. The mountain views include the Red River Ski Area, with mountains and foliage all around. At 8,750 feet above sea level, the Town of Red River offers a great place to cool off in the summer when the rest of the country, including Texas, is very hot.

The property has two balconies for enjoying the view. As the sun rises and sets, the shadows on the mountainsides and in the trees surrounding Casa Nueva #6, change constantly from minute to minute, offering wonderful photographic and viewing opportunities.

The Town of Red River is located in the middle of the Carson National Forest with hiking trails leading, among other places, up to Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico. The Red River Ski Area offers snow skiing and snowboarding beginning on the Thanksgiving holidays and continuing through spring break. Even when the natural snow is not as plentiful, the Red River Ski Area has the best snow making in the State of New Mexico. Red River is just a fun town and is great for families. There is wonderful shopping and galleries, nice restaurants, and even places to two-step.

It is always nice to hike around the Middle Fork area, and on the Goose Creek Trail. Middle Fork is a beautiful lake, and it is possible to hike up to Wheeler Peak from there, if you know where you are going. At the end of the Red River Valley, there is a nice hike from the Ditch Cabin site up to Sawmill Park which is a beautiful meadow. Mallette Park, which is located in the center of the Town, is a good place to have a picnic and take the kids to play on the playground equipment, or to play tennis or a game of disc golf or hoops. The lift is open during the summer as well as during ski season. There is a disc golf course on top of the ski mountain. Questa is a short 12 mile drive to the east, and from there it is a short drive up to Cabresto Lake. There is a beautiful trail up behind that Lake, which goes up to Heart Lake (a gradual climb of a few miles), where you can look over onto the Latir Lakes. You can also drive up to the Midnight meadows and mines on the road which runs from Questa to Cabresto. Just keep going to get to Midnight. Then, you can come back through the road which comes back to Red River through Mallette Park.

The Visitors Center in Town Hall has some excellent material about the hiking trails and other enjoyable diversions in and around Red River.

The Red River Community House organizes guided hikes along with other activities. Some of these include very enjoyable tales about the history of Red River, and can be especially helpful for those who are not familiar with the mountain trails.

The Valle Vidal runs from Costilla to Cimarron and is absolutely spectacular country.

The Wild Rivers Gorge is just north of Questa, take a left. It has some great views of and hikes into the Rio Grande Gorge. This is overlooked by most visitors, and it should not be missed.

At the east end of town, there is a Red River history museum in the Little Red School House. The library next door also has an excellent display of the history of Red River with some old photographs. The library offers a very nice selection of both DVD and VHS movies which may be borrowed, as well as books for those who are looking for something to read. Be sure to check when the Library is open.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Hiking is generally much better in the mornings when the sun is shining, before the afternoon showers come in. Usually, the earlier, the better. It is always nice to hike around the Middle Fork area, and on the Goose Creek Trail. Middle Fork is a beautiful lake, and it is possible to hike up to Wheeler Peak from there, if you know where you are going. There is a nice hike from the Ditch Cabin site up to Sawmill Park which is a beautiful meadow. Mallette Park is a good place to take the kids. In the mornings, when I am in Red River, I like to walk across the Face at the base of the lift and then go along the stream. The lift is open during the summer as well as during ski season. You can drive over to Questa and then up to Cabresto Lake, and there is a beautiful trail up behind that Lake, which goes up to Heart Lake (a gradual climb of a few miles), where you can look over onto the Latir Lakes. You can also drive up to the Midnight meadows and mines on the road which runs from Questa to Cabresto. Just keep going. Then, you can come back through the road which comes back to Red River on the Mallette Park road.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: In addition to their two places in Red River, Vicky and Josh Harrison maintain their home in an old home built in 1936, which is located just south of the Texas A&M campus, within easy walking distance from the Quad and Kyle Field. They operate a bed and breakfast there called the Loft at Southgate. Vicky is a wildlife, portrait, and landscape artist working in various media. Josh is an attorney practicing commercial law with his office in The Woodlands, Texas. The above photograph was taken in April of 2007, when the Harrisons were on a trip visiting Austria.

                  Why the Owner Chose Red River:
                  Vicky and her family have traveled to Red River since the 50's. Josh came to Red River with Vicky in the 60's and absolutely loved the mountains. This happens to lots of us native Texans who fall for the mountain scenery. The Harrisons married in 1973 and have been coming to Red River with their sons who have become great skiers and acquired a deep love of the mountains.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  Casa #6 is a quiet refuge in the mountains. It could be a wonderful place for a writer to spend several months. Yet, it is still in the town of Red River which offers all of the conveniences needed. So, the Harrisons and their guests can pick the type of property they like best, depending on availability. Being across the street from the ski lift in the center of town, Claimjumper 8 books pretty solid during the busy seasons, but Casa #6 offers a different experience, more secluded and with less distractions.
