About Mountain Shadows Lodge
May we take this opportunity to invite you to Mountain Shadows Lodge in beautiful Red River, New Mexico. The lodge was built in 1963 when the “Old Red River Pass” was still the only way in from the east. The unpaved road came right in front of the lodge. Since that time they put in the new road, “Bobcat Pass”, which passes just to the north of Mountain Shadows. We are now located at 1301 E. Main toward the upper valley and the old Red River pass.
Mountain Shadows Lodge takes you back in time to a friendlier and warmer era. Each room boasts of tongue and groove knotty pine walls and is named and decorated after a legend of “The Old West”. There is a brief history in each room about the person for which it is named. Mountain Shadows is a two-story lodge with a deck that runs in front of all the rooms. You may sit on the deck and take in all of the surrounding beauty and watch the deer, bobcats, bears and hummingbirds as they make their way to the flowerbeds, feeders and the river. The Red River is just about 25 yards from the lodge. You can fish off of the bridge that crosses the river or go up about a block and be back in the Carson National Forest and fish in the stream.
Since the town of Red River is only one mile long you are never very far from any of the many activities Red River has to offer. Of course you can always count on the “free” trolley to take you to the activity of your choice.
