About Resort Realty

We are both from Dallas but have lived in Red River for several years, my husband has been here 30 years. We were both Red River ski instructors and we now own and operate Resort Realty in Red River. Our 25 year old son, his wife and our adorable grandson live in Dallas. My son is in the Air Force. Our daughter is attending the University of Colorado. Go Buffs! Enjoy our Mountain Home! Go Buffs!

Resort Realty purchased this house in 2011

Why Resort Realty chose New Mexico

Having both been in Red River real estate for many years we have had the opportunity to see so many beautiful houses but as soon as we visited the Smokey River Chalet, as guests at a party, we fell in love. As soon as it went on the market we knew we had to figure out a way to purchase this wonderful home. When you have the windows open you can listen to the peaceful sound of the river and when you are in the living/kitchen the back wall of windows make you feel like you are in a treehouse. I have never seen such gorgeous furnishings, the previous owner owned a high end furniture store in Dallas and he picked out the best and most expensive to furnish the house.

What makes this house unique

It is hard to beat the sights and sounds of the river and mountains from this home. You will also really love the open floor plan. It is perfect for family and entertaining

Excellent place to spend time with family or friends. This is one of the nicer places we have stayedin. Its very clean, quiet, spacious, has comfortable beds beautiful views. It offers open dining/living room area with beautiful high celings, hot tub and pool table. Close to hiking trailes and located next to the Red River, creek which is stocked with plenty of trout. Everything you need to make your getaway special. I especially apprecieate the good customer service from the staff at Resort Realty. They are very professional, organized and still provide that friendly atmostsphere. Highly recommend this place. The perfect get away for entertaining while enjoying the views. Approximately 10 minutes to the town of Red River. Impeccably designed with beautiful furniture and finishes throughout the home.

Wow! Wonderful Place to Stay.

We got together for our annual family reunion over the weekend and really enjoyed this beautiful Chalet nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The views are amazing! My husband and I woke up looking at the beautiful pine trees and listening to the sounds of the river below. The sound of the river was comforting and tranquil. We enjoyed the cozy evenings near the fireplace. We were very pleased to receive a call from staff inquiring about our stay. They are very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back!

Could not have asked for a better anniversary get away. My husband and I joined a couple of our friends for a weekend at the smoky river chalet. We drove in from Vegas. What a beautiful cabin,fully stocked with everything we needed. My husband enjoyed the man cave with the pool table and the location was perfect with a cozy little bench outback overlooking the river. Romantic & fun located in a cute little ski town. We loved every minute and was sad to return home. Thank you we will hopefully be back someday

Summer Vacation

Smokey River was a nice home. For our family of 10 it was a little tight on space. There were beds for ten but lounging was a tight sqeeze. The carpets were pretty soiled also. But our overall stay was really fun!

We arrived on Thursday night and Friday the plumbing was bubbling downstairs, Saturday midday we returned to rest a bit and found sewer backed up in the downstairs bathroom then the toilet overflowed soaking the carpet in the downstairs bedroom, the house smelled of sewer. They had us move to a different house. The next day they told us we had to move back and sent people to help. The sewer was not fixed and the house still smelled, we had to open the windows to lessen the smell. The next day no one in our party could shower or flush toilets. They did get it fixed finally and clean the carpet. We spent 5 nights in Red River, our first night we moved all our things in including groceries, then we had to move all our things two other times not including repacking our car for the drive home, so four of our days in Red River was spent moving our belongings. They quit answering our phone calls and have not offered any type of reimbursement. I would not recommend renting anything from this company. It is fine until there is a problem, as long as they have your money they don't care.

Owner's Response: Dear Stephanie, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a candid review of your recent stay at our home. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay. We truly value your opinion and are sincerely so sorry we fell short of your expectations. Unfortunately, there are times when unforeseen mechanical failures in a home may occur that cause changes to be made that are out of our control. As soon as you notified us of a problem on Saturday evening, we came to the home immediately, and I am so sorry we were unsuccessful at unclogging your toilet in the downstairs bedroom. I had truly hoped, given the situation of the downstairs bathroom being out of service, temporarily moving you to another 4 bedroom luxury home two houses down the street would be a great solution. Fortunately, we were able to hire a plumber to resolve the clog as soon as possible. We have never before had a problem with a clogged toilet that we were not able to resolve with a simple plunge. The plumbing company advised us somebody in your group had used an extremely large amount of toilet paper and as long as nobody flushes excessive amounts of toilet paper again we will not have any problems in the future. We hope you will return to experience the many enhancements we are making to the home this spring.

"Great place to stay"

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay for an early Thanksgiving family gathering at the Smokey River Chalet. It is equipped with plenty of cookware needed for a family meal. We enjoyed the fireplace and my nieces and nephews had fun in the hot tub. My husband was also happy to fish in the river located behind the Chalet. He even caught some fish while we were there. The Chatlet is clean and beautifully decorated. The staff is very accommodating and provided excellent customer service.

We would highly recommend this Chalet to other families and plan to return.

Thank you Resort Realty for a fantastic weekend!
