A 4×4 vehicle and possibly snow chains will be necessary to access our Casa Contenta home during the winter season. Casa Contenta sleeps 14 in its 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and offers WiFi and satellite TV. Casa Contenta is a large cabin home that is located in the Upper Valley, nestled next to the mountains. This property is ideal for a large family getaway. Not only are the views breathtaking all year round, but you get a chance to see the local wildlife pass through from time to time. On the first floor, you will find a grand living room with views of the loft and rooms above. The open floor plan ensures that you are never disconnected from others while in the fully equipped and loaded kitchen. The living room has a large stone fireplace which will make for memorable evenings as you talk about your adventures around the crackling of the nightly fire. The master bedroom is located on the first floor. It has its own ensuite with large windows so you can see the beautiful scenery outside if you wish. It also has its own fireplace! Imagine being curled up on the king-sized bed in the winter months, watching the flames dance in the fireplace. The other bedrooms have king-size beds as well, with the exception of two - each has 2 sets of built-in bunk beds. No need to worry about having to wait in line for the shower or to use the restroom, as this home has 4 full baths and a half bath downstairs! You can’t ask for much better than that. During the day guests can enjoy the serenity of the area, and on the back deck, you can enjoy the view of the river and listen to it as it babbles downstream. There is plenty of room for trailer parking but we do ask that you not drive your ROV (Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle) on the property.  You will need to keep your ROVs trailered and pull them to the off-road trails. 4 Wheel Drive is mandatory during the winter months!! ***This home is not pet-friendly, so Fido will have to stay behind for this trip. ***The garage in the picture is not accessible to guests. ***At this time, fire pits can not be allowed at Casa Contenta.

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.


For guests flying into New Mexico, we recommend flying into either Albuquerque International Sunport or Santa Fe Municipal Airport. Both airports offer daily flights into the area. Once you’ve landed, there are a variety of ways to get to town depending on your preference. Rental cars are available at both airport locations, though please note that Google maps doesn’t always provide an accurate location. You can also reserve to be picked up by our charming local transportation, Twin Hearts Express and Transportation. Twin Hearts offers a shuttle service directly to Red River, along with the surrounding communities. Reservations for Twin Hearts Express are mandatory, so please make sure to schedule your ride prior to arrival.
