The Riverside Lodge, Condos and Cabins has a rich history. A small cabin was built on the Riverside property where the main lodge now stands sometime during Red River's gold rush days. Added onto over the years, it became Red River's first residence. Not long after, a grocery was added and by 1901 the owners were renting rooms.
The Riverside's present Innkeepers rebuilt or remodeled everything. Riverside has 30 cabins or condo-type units and 8 suites in the main lodge. The Riverside Lodge Condos and Cabins is located on a full city block in the center of Red River, across the street from the Community Center and adjacent to the Red River Ski Area's newest ski lift.
The Riverside property boasts lots of green area with a large, well-equipped playground, hot tub, central meeting room with patio, an outdoor B.B.Q. area, horseshoes, and shuffleboard.
Red River is a Year-Round Vacation Playground
Located on Northern New Mexico's Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, Red River enjoys an almost ideal climate year-round. At over 8,500' elevation, winters are cold, clear and crisp, (except, of course when it's snowing!) with a dry climate that produces a uniquely powdery snow highly valued by skiers and snow boarders alike. Set in the middle of the million and a half acres of the Carson National Forest in the shadow of New Mexico's highest point, Wheeler Peak, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and tubing are very popular in the winter.
In the summer, vacationers flock to Red River to beat the heat and enjoy all the magnificent Rocky Mountains have to offer. The average summer temperature during the day in Red River is a comfortable 75° with cool nights and star-filled skies. In the summer visitors to Red River enjoy hiking, mountain and road biking, horseback riding - for an hour or several days, Jeep tours, and of course, fishing. You can even get off your horse at the end of a long day in the mountains, and mosey on over to a Cowboy Dinner, with great open air food and entertainment. Just down the road from Red River, you can go hot air ballooning, white water rafting and rock climbing. And of course, many enjoy the perfect opportunity Red River offers to relax, watching the hummingbirds and other abundant bird and wildlife, or taking a leisurely walk through an alpine meadow carpeted with wildflowers. (And don't forget your camera!)
But perhaps the biggest surprise Red River has to offer is all their fun events throughout the year. Red River is a tiny town that does everything in a big way, whether it is Mardi Gras, (That's right, the biggest Mardi Gras celebration outside of New Orleans is in Red River, NM!) Music Festivals, Chili Cook-Offs, a Memorial Day Weekend Motorcycle Rally or Spring Break, Red River knows how to show its guests a good time!
