Reviewed 20 March 2014

This was a great place to stay for two families with a three kids combined (all ages 3 and under). We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit. It provided sufficient space for 4 adults and 3 kids. The location was fantastic. The Copper Chair lift is such a short walk, it made coming back and forth to the lodge super easy! We enjoyed the evening s'mores with the owners. Thanks for a great family trip.

This is a nice place to stay. We stayed in a two bedroom "cabin." They are not stand alone cabins so that is why I put it in quotation marks. The owners were very accommodating for us. The first night we were there we noticed the bed in one room had my feet elevated and my head down. They came in the next day and fixed it. The old creek bed ran through there so it causes some shifting.
People staying there tend to feed the deer so while we were there it was almost a daily thing to see the deer. It is not encouraged to feed the deer but the people all around us were doing so.
BRING PAPERTOWELS. They provide a lot but they do not provide paper towels nor shampoo & conditioner. They do provide clean towels, TP, and soap.
I spoke with another woman who was staying at a local B & B and she was paying far more than what I was paying at Three Bears.
No need to buy or rent the dish sleds bc they have them there and will let you use them. VERY NICE & FRIENDLY people that own this place.
I will stay here again. I liked it that much. If I had to put something negative about it, it would be that the cabin smelled like maple syrup ALL THE TIME. I like the smell of maple syrup but after an hour or two I was not impressed. I had Debbie & Yates smell it when Yates came to fix the bed and they could not figure it out. I went next door the night before we left and their cabin didn't smell like maple syrup. They couldn't figure it out. We couldn't either. All I know is that it would wake me up in the middle of the night smelling that all the time. I'm sure I could have requested another cabin but we REALLY kept thinking that it was going to go away. It never did. We were in #7. I also did not like the mattresses in our room. Some of the cabins have new ones but I don't think this is one of them.

Room Tip: Our room had a full size stove and oven and the refrigerator worked great. The toaster oven doesn...

We skied in Red River for the first time March 4-9 and stayed at Three Bears Lodge. We absolutely LOVED our stay in the cozy cabins. They were very clean and the owners were such a pleasure. We enjoyed our time out on the deck visiting with them and eating s'mores. Yatesy was my ski instructor who did a great job teaching me better technique, so if you are taking a private lesson, request him! The deer would come up and eat right out of our hands. The cabin also had plenty of towels, wood for fire, and even fire starter! We will definitely stay at Three Bears Lodge again. Thank you, Yates and Debbie, for making our stay a great one!

This was our first trip to NM. The communication with the owners before our arrival and during our stay were great! They were super helpful and very friendly. The cabin we stayed in was nice and clean. Also the location of these cabins are wonderful! We walked almost everywhere from our cabin. Great stay and the s'mores nights made it a little more special. :) We will for sure be going back to Red River and when we do we'll stay at Three Bears! :)

Our family has spent the last 3 Christmases at 3 Bears Lodge. Love spending time in Red River and the hospitality we receive at 3Bears is the best. Already booked for next year and will continue going back every year.

We LOVED staying here! Friendly...Clean...Updated...Comfy Beds...the owners were so sweet to deal with. In fact, we loved staying so much we came back two weeks later. :) We have been going to Red River for 10 years and this was the first year we stayed at Three Bears Lodge and it's our favorite. Thank you, Debbie, for the hospitality and helpfulness! <3
