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. They have told us about many scenic routes to take in and around Red River and none have disappointed us. The rooms are decorated by Terry in a way that makes you feel right at home. It is a great place to stay if you are ever in Red River. Be sure to watch for the hummingbirds right outside the room and the deer that roam in the field across from the Lodge.
