“Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

My family came to Red River, NM to attend Octoberfest and take in the mountains. It was my first time staying at Three Bears and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have stayed all over NM and Three Bears is true to the NM vibe and rustic comfort I've come to enjoy. The owners are incredibly friendly and hard working. The place was very clean and they were very accommodating..

Room Tip: Splurge on the 2 bedroom cabin, its worth it if there's more than just 2 people

Went up for Oktoberfest 2013. Stayed two nights. Price was good. Floors were slanted in one bedroom, so much so, that our two daughters had to flip around on the second night, with their heads at the foot of the bed. Beds were too small for two people and the mattresses too soft. Simple locks on doors are a pain to open at times, especially for someone with arthritis. Kitchen cabinets were rigged to stay shut. Tons of cobwebs in the corners of the ceilings. First night, had nothing to start a fire with in the wood stove. Had to go to the market to get matches and fire starter. Utensils were small and mismatched. Overall, there was no attention to detail. Walls were paper thin on the south side; we could hear conversations pretty decently. We'll never stay there again with too many other nicer places to stay in town.

Room Tip: Not much good to say about them. Owners are very nice, though.

With regard to the previous review, we are sorry Abqcrutch did not have a satisfactory experience in our mountain cabins. We would, however, like to address some of the points in the review:

1. We are happy that the price/value was considered to be good.
2. The beds, which were considered to be too small, are new queen beds as advertised. Manufactured by Serta.
3. The cabins each have a wood burning fireplace/stove (in addition to gas heat). Unlimited firewood, fire starters, and matches are available free of charge.
4. We strive to give our guest an authentic mountain cabin experience. Our cabins are traditional "Red River" with logs on the outside and knotty pine on the inside. Recent upgrades include - new beds/bedding, new kitchen appliances, new futons, remodeled bathrooms, flat screen television with satellite, and wifi.

We would like to thank Abqcrutch for their input as we continue to strive to improve the guest experience at Three Bears Lodge.

We stayed in cabin #5 for four nights. The location was great for walking to restaurants, hiking, and shopping in Red River. We enjoyed making friends with the owners and persons staying near our cabin. It was a very peaceful setting, close to the river and a great view of the mountains. We loved our stay, the friendly folks, the gathering around the pit fire and look forward to a return trip to Three Bears Lodge. Thanks for the hospitality! Gene & Sheryl, McPherson, KS

My husband and I stayed at 3 Bears Lodge in Red River NM for 5 days/4 nights, we had cabin 3 - 2 bed/1 bath. We opted to go during the off season (September 16-20) and were not disappointed. Several reviews and photos promised a quaint cabin in the heart of the town and they lived up to expectation. We have stayed at hotels and cabins in many places (including Europe) and this was by far the most clean. The bathroom shower was the first time I did not feel that I needed to wear water shoes. We were pleasantly surprised at the updated condition of the cabins as well. The beds are spring mattress, so bring a foam topper if you are used to sleeping on a Tempur-Pedic like us. Even though it was off season, little touches such as lighted entry ways, s'mores and flowers were a nice touch. Chris and Debbie (owners) are wonderful people and we enjoyed talking to them. We will absolutely come back and look forward to staying there again!

Pros:
- Extremely clean
- Updated shower
- Fully stocked kitchen (including appliances, dishes, cookware, and silverware)
- Fresh towels/paper products daily (if needed)
- Wall heater & fire burning stove
- Cabin decor/comfy pillows
- Less than 100ft from Ski Lift
- Close to center of town
- Close to restaurants
- Owners onsite
- My husband said "s'mores night was fun"

Cons:
- None

Room Tip: Cabins 2-5 are closer to the Ski Lift.

My family and I had 4 nights of real enjoyment. My grandsons were within walking distance to fish. The owners are great people . They brought a grill to the cabin for us to use at no extra cost, kept clean towels and just a pleasant experience that you don't get in most places.The price was also reasonable AND WILL DEFINATELY USE THEM AGAIN..COMPLETe KITCHEN,,FURNISHED.

Room Tip: Parking is easy, you can drive right beside the porch . or pull up in front of some .

Dear Booth Family,

Thank you for your kind words regarding our cabins. So glad your grandson enjoyed his fishing. (We would have put them back in the water too lol). Hope to see you again sometime!

Thanks,

Debbie and Chris (Owners)

We love to stay at Three Bears Lodge every time we go to Red River. The rooms are great. The view is fantastic. Being right between Main Street and the Copper Chair lift is ideal. The owners are extremely nice and even have smore's for everyone 3 times a week.
