  • Wisconsin

    "This home is absolutely beautiful and an amazing place to stay! Tony has added a new hot tub but that is just an added bonus. This property has everything you will need and feels very comfortable. The surroundings are very private and off the beaten path. If you love a serene setting, you will want to stay here. We found it to be very well equipped for all of our needs. Tony was wonderful to work with and was very accomodating to our needs. We would highly recommend this property!"

  • Upper Canyon Cabin

    "My husband and I stayed there over Labor Day weekend and had a fantastic time! The cabin was immaculately clean. The beds were comfortable and all the rooms were nicely furnished. We enjoyed sitting outside on the decks while watching deer, turkeys, birds, sunrise and sunsets during the day and gazing at stars at night! We will definitely stay there again when we return to Ruidoso!"

  • The most restful vacation I've ever had

    "This home was everything it was billed to be and then some. It's VERY secluded...so secluded in fact that we drove past the cutoff for it two or three times before we found it. However, once there, it gave us everything we wanted...quiet, spectacular views, nature, room for the dog to run, interesting surroundings to explore, and all the creature comforts of home. We took small side trips every day into Silver City, Pinos Altos and different parts of the Gila Wilderness area. Silver City offered food, art, crafts and all the other amenities that make a vacation fun. The wilderness area also offered us plenty of opportunities to hike with the dog. We went there with no schedule; woke up when we pleased, napped when we pleased, ate when we pleased, and two weeks later left limp as noodles. It was like a massage for the soul. The house itself was meticulously designed to blend into the environment. It's carved right into the mountain; about a third of it is underground. When we went (in late August) the afternoon temps can get quite warm, but the house never became oppressively hot thanks to quilted, thermal shades that kept the direct sun out and the living quarters comfortably cool with fans. Four decks surround the house, so you can eat outside in shade any time of the day. However, warning: bring some bug spray. July and August are the rainy season and when we were there, there was no shortage of mosquitoes. The home is exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The owner had quite a library about local history and I think my wife read every book during the two weeks we were there. I would go back again in a heartbeat and recommend this home to anyone healthy enough to hike in the surrounding area. The elevation of the house is at 6800 feet so the air is quite thin. The terrain is also very rugged – there are lots of steep trails in the surrounding national forest. All in all, it was a great stay. We left with many fond memories."

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. Here, visitors can explore Cruces Basin, Columbine-Hondo, Latir Peak, Pecos and Wheeler Peak. The park is home to a variety of wildlife including antelope, black bear, bighorn sheep, elk, mule deer and mountain lions. 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.
