Where To Stay In Red River, New Mexico

Red River is the height of your fantasy southwestern New Mexico vacation. Located 36 miles from Taos in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, its fiery sunsets over alpine laden peaks, attest to the power of its sublime mountain location. Built by miners who in the early 1900s began renting out their cabins to those wishing to escape the summer heat, rustic mountain accommodations remain the foundation of this beautiful enchanting town.
