Recent Red River reviews

  • Excellent Spring Break Accomodations

    "Message: Regina, I just wanted to send you a personal email and thank you for the use of your home during spring break! The Martin Family had a wonderful time in Red River and staying in the “Red River Penthouse” made all the difference in the world. We truly appreciated that the home was furnished with everything necessary for a wonderful week. The view from the balcony is priceless. If we ever come back to Red River, this is our first choice for lodging. Rusty"

  • Cozy cabin

    "We loved this sweet cabin. The location outside of town on a dirt road might not be for everyone, but we loved how secluded and private it was. Another feature we loved was the large deck. We befriended birds, chipmunks and squirrels. The inside was exactly what we were hoping for. Comfortable and cozy, but very rustic. We will look forward to coming back in the winter to watch it snow while sitting by the fire. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

  • Wedding Celebration

    "We chose Red River to have our celebration, Resort Realty provided the best customer service and the event would not have been a success with out Steve and Diane. The chalet was clean, well stocked and tastefully decorated. Steve, Diane and their crew were amazing and I highly recommend Chalet. :)"

Red River Travel Tips

Red River Vacation Rentals in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains

Red River, in Taos County, New Mexico, is a resort town in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Conveniently located for Albuquerque International Airport, the area of Red River in New Mexico is also situated within easy access of major roads, such as Interstate 25 and US Highway 38. It is just a three-hour drive from Albuquerque; it can also be reached by rail on the New Mexico Rail Runner. This mountainous area is an old mining area where gold, silver and copper mines were the focus. With hot summers and warm winters, Red River lodging is popular all year-round.

Red River Vacation Houses with Movies on the Lawn

From its origins as a gold area, visitors now come for the outdoor activities, relaxed atmosphere and history surrounding Red River vacation rentals. In the town of Red River, there are five buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Little Red School House Museum, several early period cabins and Pierce Fuller House. The Red River Community House has family entertainment throughout the summer and there are a variety of free events such as Movies on the Lawn, and events aimed at teenagers and young adults. There are also arts and crafts activities which make a great family fun day.

The variety of hiking trails in the area range from short and easy to long and difficult. The Red River Nature Trail at Brandenburg Park takes hikers across the covered bridge and is a great one for families. Along the trail are markers providing history and information about the local wildlife. The moderate Middle Fork takes visitors to the lake. The old Pioneer Trail takes the road originally built by miners in the 19th century. Along this trail, visitors can explore old mines and view the historic buildings. Longer, overnight and more difficult hikes are well worth the effort with many ending at one of the lakes in the area where hikers can fish or enjoy a cooling swim. Other activities near here include rafting, tubing, rock climbing, tennis and miniature golf. The wilderness area of Carson National Forest is over 86,000 acres where visitors are welcome only on foot or horseback.

Among the 400 miles of clear mountain streams and lakes, visitors can fish for trout and other fish. Responsible off road drivers are welcome along a variety of "Jeeping" trails. Areas of particular interest are Cabresto Canyon and Lake Road, 4th of July Canyon, Garrapata Ridge, Goose Lake, Mallette Canyon, Old Red River Pass, and Trail Canyon. There are also many opportunities for fishing, horseback riding, hunting, mountain tours and rafting trips.
