“Lovely Get Away”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

My husband and I and our 2 German Shepherds stayed in the Tall Pines Cabin and it was wonderful. We were toasty warm even though it was cold outside. We took advantage of the hot tub and it was heavenly sitting in the hot tub under the stars. The location was great, and we did day hikes to the Caldera area. We'd love to go back again. Breakfast burritos were very good, and the hosts were very attentive and made sure we were happy. We were thrilled that they accepted pets, and I think their pet policy is very fair. I hiked to the top of the mountain behind the cabin and it sure is steep! Thank you!

Room Tip: We liked the Tall Pines Cabin because of the hot tub on the deck. The master bedroom also has a wal...

We had an absolute fantastic stay here. The cabin exceeded our expectations, the surrounding area was so beautiful. Breakfasts and personal attention to all or our needs left nothing to be desired. Only problem, we didn't stay here long enough. This was a slice of paradise in one of most majestic areas of the US, thank you,

Loved every minute of it! Robin, Garth, Gracie, and Cody couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming! The amazing breakfast burritos, fishing tips, and Cody's escorts from our cabin to the main lodge made it a trip we won't ever forget. Not only was our cabin (Ponderosa) beautiful, clean, and cozy, so was every aspect of Jemez Springs. There's tons to do and lots of trout to catch! We will definitely be coming back!

I recently surprised my fiance for our anniversary by taking her to the Elk Mountain Lodge for an overnight trip in the Jemez. We stayed in the Tall Pines Cabin.

When we arrived my fiance was very surprised. She knew we were going to a cabin but she didn't know where or what kind. When she saw the cabin she told me I outdid myself, and both of us were very impressed with how nice the cabin was. The main bedroom is cozy and has warm blankets, and the hot tub was incredible, especially since it was a nippy night. We grilled burgers and cooked chili over the fire.

The hosts are very nice, and they have the most adorable dogs. One of them, Cody I'm pretty sure, made us his best friends because we were cooking and roasting marshmallows outdoors. The flat screen TV has nice picture, and was much more impressive than the typical TV set up in cabins. The breakfast was really tasty, and came with a lot of options.

This property and the cabin we stayed in are incredibly nice and cozy. It makes a great get away for someone who lives nearby in Albuquerque looking to get out for a weekend, or someone driving through the area looking for somewhere quaint to stay. We definitely plan on making a return trip in the future.

Room Tip: Our cabin did not have a stove, and I'm pretty sure none of them do, so if you plan on cooking t...

My husband and I took our 2 boys up there to celebrate our 10th Anniversary and we loved it! The room was lovely, and the boys had plenty of room to roam. My one son called it "fancy camping". Enjoyed some great birdwatching right from our patio and so many beautiful New Mexico wildflowers all around. And my boys fell madly in love with Cody the dog. Great time!

We wanted a weekend away from city bustle and Elk Mountain Lodge was perfect. From being greeted by "Cody," the friendly resident Great Pyranese/Chow mix, to the the cozy Santa Fe room with full jacuzi tub to the delicious green chile burritos prepared by Garth and Robin, we couldn't have asked for more. Our weekend was more than what we were looking for. Garth and Robin went out of the way to be sure we had everything we needed. We highly recommend their lodge to anyone looking for peace and tranquility and beautiful vistas!

Room Tip: The Ponderosa and the Aspen have pellet stoves if you plan to stay during colder weather. All rooms...

We stopped by on a whim and wish we could stay forever. Perfect place to stay after a long hike in the mountains. Hot tub in the room, classic westerns available at the front desk, delicious enchiladas down the road at Los Ojos.
