This lodge is situated just off a river with all the beauty of mountain living. My husband and I go every year and often multiple times a year as life allows. Its well worth the drive as the town has lots to offer.
The inn keepers (last name Pattersons) are absolutely wonderful. Larry guides fishing and even took us on a four-wheeling trip up Greenie Peak. His wife, Terry is also great. She is generous and the last four times we have stayed there, she has offered to have us join them for dinner–often something we wouldn’t cook ourselves.
Our last stay was during Labor Day Weekend. We were able to take another couple who was equally pleased with our “treasure find.”
The lodge is clean and each room is themed...Read More
My husband and I have been going to Red River for 15 years and stumbled upon Mountain Shadows Lodge 9 years ago after a rafting trip in Colorado and stayed the weekend.
We enjoyed the quaintness and comfort of the rooms so much that for the next 3 years after that, we gradually increased the number of nights we would stay at the Lodge. For the past 5 years, we have spent our entire vacation there and thoroughly enjoyed it. Terry and Larry, the owners, have invited us into their home for home cooked meals. Larry is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Red River and how the town came to be and loves to share these stories which has made our visits to Red River even more enjoyable. Terry is extremely friendly and helpful and respectful to all of her guests...Read More
My husband, myself, and four of our friends stayed in one of the two bedroom cabins. We had an AMAZING time!!! Chris and Debbie were such wonderful and hospitable people and they were so kind to help us at anything we needed.
Their beds were super comfortable and the accomidations were great! We didn’t have one second where we needed something that either Chris or Debbie weren’t there to help us out within minutes.
This place has really turned around since the change of hands of ownership. We will stay here EVERY time we go to Red River from now on. Thank you all for being so great! See you in a couple of months.
The owners, Chris & Debbie, were extremely nice and generous. They streamlined the booking/check-in process. Their service is top-notch.
The cabins are newly renovated with comfor...Read More
Well, summer break has come to an end. We were blessed to be able to take a family vacation at the first of August, and we had a wonderful time making memories together. We camped at a family-oriented campground in southern Colorado for seven days, and we were able to hike and explore, fish, relax, ride horses, ride in paddle boats, and just enjoy being together. The older three kids went with their dad for a two-day primitive camping experience to Archuleta Lake. Since their trip coincided with the Perseid meteor showers, there was an awesome display of beauty in the night sky.
Our family met some friends at Great Sand Dunes National Park for a day, and the more adventurous ones of the group hiked to the top of the largest dune...Read More
