Reviewed 9 April 2012

I spent one night here and had a lovely time. It was easy to make a reservation the same week I stayed. The owner was friendly and welcoming and cooked up some good breakfast burritos, along with offering other continental breakfast options. It was enjoyable eating breakfast with the other guests in the main house. The wooden interior of the room was beautiful and I definitely took advantage of the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. It's not far from the village of Jemez Springs but it feels like you're a world away from the bustling town. There are hammocks around the property and the resident dog was a happy addition. The price was reasonable. I would definitely stay here again the next time I take an overnight getaway from Albuquerque.

The owner of the lodge is beyond nice. He is also a wealth of information on the surrounding area. He also tells you "you won't need anything" and it was true. He supplied firewood, a grill and cookingware, and so much more. If you're looking for a romantic get-away, look no further. Also, say hello to his very-affectionate, very-large dog, Cody.

Room Tip: Country Lace is a good value and is still a decent size for 2. The Royal Aspen was DEFINITELY the ni...

We have stayed at most of the B&B's in the Jemez area. This offers the most room, privacy and amenities for the money. We stay in Jemez at least once a year and this is our new favorite. Beautiful cabins, friendly staff, privacy. Best value for couples getaway or families.

Not what we had expected, but the welcome by Terry and his charming dog, as well as the big quirkily designed room and huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub for two, made up for the harrowing drive at night in the snow. Slept well. Arose to sparkling snow on the mountains, the cars, the porch. Delightful company at breakfast with delicious coffee that the 'famous' breakfast burritos. Will come back again. It's casual, it's probably not for everyone, but we definitely liked it.

We really enjoyed the room it was an open floor plan log cabin with a heated floor,fireplace, rock waterfall in the shower, jacuzi tub , satellite tv. They offer a nice continental breakfast with hot coffee plus a delious typically New Mexican freshly made green chili, egg, sausage and cheese breakfast burrito plus Orange juice and fruit . We loved the people loving silly dog to play with.

I must admit up front that it has been several years since we spent two idyllic nights enjoying the Ponderosa room at the lovely Elk Mountain Lodge. I am thrilled to read more recent reviews that echo my sentiments completely (except for the rude comments about Terry's beloved furbaby) Our entire experience could not have been more satisfying - from initial contact to our melancholic departure (we hated to leave).
Terry's warm reception made us feel like we were visiting an old friend and it just got better from there. The Ponderosa room was tastefully appointed, immaculately clean and over-the-top cozy, so much so that we were tempted to just stay in. After a brief rest, however,I was eager to get out and explore the surrounding beauty. We hiked along the river and scrambled to higher ground for better views of the breathtaking scenery. Eventually, as the sunlight dwindled we headed toward the Village of Jemez Springs to check out the historic Los Ojos Restaurant and Saloon to enjoy an adult beverage with a hearty meal. We didn't linger there for long though as our comfy room with the over-sized tub, candles and luxurious linens beckoned. The remainder of our evening was blissfully restful and we awakened early but invigorated; enthusiastic about the day ahead. Our plan was to visit Bandelier and to savor the sights in between. Breakfast with Terry was the ideal way to start our day. He shared helpful insights about the region while preparing our delicious meal in his stunning lodge. He again made us feel like we were in a loved ones' home.
The 35 mile drive to Bandelier takes you through dense forest and past vast meadows. Elk, as you might imagine, are abundant. I am saddened to report here that much of Bandelier National Monument remains closed after the devastating Las Concha fire and flash floods early in the summer of 2011. I am grateful we took the opportunity to explore so much of the historic site and ancient dwellings. After several hours trekking through Bandelier we decided that we'd be more than content to spend the rest of our brief stay relaxing in the peaceful splendor at the Lodge. It was the right decision.

Thank you Terry for a wonderful time in the Jemez mountains. Our stay was too short but it was very peaceful. We always enjoy the Ponderosa room because of the view from the porch. Your version of breakfast burritos were a hit with both of us and we are now trying to replicate them at home.
We both enjoyed seeing how much Cody has grown in the past year. He isn't a puppy any more!
Hopefully, we will be able to return next year.
