Cowboy Cabin is a 1940s rustic cabin full of charm located in a peaceful area outside Red River, NM in Bitter Creek. If you want to avoid crowds and chill in the mountains, you won't find a more relaxing place. OUTDOORS: The real treat of staying in the cabin is the sights and sounds you'll enjoy from the large covered deck or firepit surrounded by tall pine and aspen trees. You'll also be steps away from Michael Martin Murphey’s Rocking 3M Amphitheater; so close that you can hear the music while sitting on the deck! (But otherwise, you might not see a soul!) Be sure to bring your ROVs, as there is plenty of room for your ROV Trailer. INSIDE: The older cabin is cozy but has just enough space to host 4 guests comfortably in 2 bedrooms. This kitchen has all the essentials, such as major appliances, pots, pans, dishes, bakeware, and utensils. If the weather doesn't allow porch-rocking, there is a satellite TV, books to read, games to play, and a fireplace to gather around. Other things you can count on: bedding, towels, gas heater, dressers, closets, and plenty of seating for four. SPECIAL NOTICES TINY BATHROOM! The cabin is very small, with a tiny bathroom. Access to the toilet and/or shower may be difficult if you are a larger-sized person. PARKING: There is enough parking space for 2 regular-sized vehicles. WINTER DRIVING: The house is accessible year-round, but roads can be snowy in the winter. We strongly encourage people visiting from December through March to have a four-wheel-drive vehicle with decent clearance (SUV, truck, etc.). Smaller vehicles without four-wheel-drive may do okay with tire chains or if snow has been light that season, but don’t say we didn’t warn you! GARBAGE & DISHES: Due to the rural, rustic nature of our lodge, guests are required to remove all garbage & deliver it to dumpsters 2-4 miles away, as well as clean and put away all dishes and kitchenware. NO PARTIES: The lodge is in a rural, residential area. We want to maintain the area's peacefulness. Thus, guests must: 1) Abide by our max guest limit at ALL times and not have more people or vehicles on the property than the claimed number of guests. 2) Not play loud music outside at any time, and not be louder outdoors than conversation-level after 9 PM. 3) Do not use bright outdoor (porch) lighting after 9 PM beyond; brief use as needed. SPOTTY CELL PHONE SERVICE: Some carriers have decent service in the area, but we cannot guarantee it. There is internet (Wi-Fi) service in the cabin that works most of the time! Whether booking direct or through a third party, all reservations are subject to our rental terms and conditions and cancellations/refund policy. If you have any questions, please reach out prior to your stay.

About The Neighborhood

Red River is nestled in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, located in the southernmost part of the Rocky Mountains. The mountain town is completely surrounded by the Carson National Park. Despite being a small town, Red River has an extensive dining selection that is sure to satisfy even the pickiest eater. Enjoy everything from bistros and cafes, to Italian, Mexican, and even the finest steakhouses while maintaining relaxed mountain vibes. Hiking is a fun and easy way to explore the natural beauty that Red River has to offer. There are several leisurely trails around town for those looking to have a relaxing stroll through the Carson National Park, as well as the more challenging terrains for those adventure seekers.

Getting Around

Red River is an ideal town for walkers. At a little over one mile long, visitors can easily stroll along the sidewalks and take in all the town has to offer. After shopping, skiing or just enjoying all this mountain offers, visitors have the option to not walk at all. The Red River Miner's Transit provides free year-round, seven-days-a-week, wheelchair-accessible service anywhere in town. Skiers especially love the hotel to slope-side service.
