“Comfy Chiricahua Getaway”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

We stayed here a week and were so comfy we could have stayed longer. We had originally booked the La Casita but Di Ann knew there was going to be a checkout the day we were checking in so she offered to upgrade us for free to the La Paloma so she wouldn't be rushed to clean. We took the upgrade and we were glad we did. It was a bigger unit, perfect for being 'park central' to my father-in-law in the Cowboy unit and a friend who parked his trailer in the rv space. We cooked every night, which turned out to be a good strategy given the low diversity of restaurants in the area. I communicated quite a bit with Di Ann while meal planning at home to make sure I knew what was present to cook with, and anything that wasn't already there Di Ann graciously stocked from her own kitchen if necessary to make it easy on me. She even had briquettes for the barbecue grill that were leftover from a previous guest so we didn't need to bring them. Not only was the kitchen convenient, but the whole place was set up great for an extended stay. It was truly like having our own house. We slept in only one of the beds and it was pretty comfy. We used the second bedroom for our luggage so we could spread out more (both bedrooms were pretty small). The bathroom (in between the two bedrooms) was really spacious with lots of room to put out cosmetics, etc, and it was well stocked with shampoo, soap and towels. All in all, a great home away from home.

I also checked out the Cowboy room -- it was adorable! I didn't spend much time in there but my father in law said it was comfortable.

This place has a lot to offer for a great price. About the only drawback is that it is not right in the canyon, but if you can live with that you can definitely save money and probably be more comfortable in every other way.

Quiet peaceful and warm and cozy! Stay and see all the local birds, as well as a wonderful hostess, DiAnn! We will stay here whenever we come to little Rodeo, New Mexico! I love the the old fashion stuff that she has reconditioned and it adds a nice home type feeling to the rooms with good memories of the old days.Very Clean and equipped kitchen that is very nice to cook in. I loved are stay and give it a Five Star rating.

The price is so reasonable that even those on a fixed income can afford to stay. The views and landscaping are awesome. This place was a wonderful surprise. Due to my job I am frequently in Rodeo AT least once a month I rent a room from DiAnn. These rooms are great. They each have a theme and the rooms are decorated according to the theme. The smallest room is the size of an efficiency apartment and furnished accordingly..

I use The Mountain Valley Lodge frequently, both as a place to park myself if I've just gotten to town and can't get my place up and running right away, and as a place to stash family and friends who come to visit. The accomodations are excellent and DiAnn is a fun and gracious hostess. Over the years, both myself and friends and family have stayed in all of the rooms and casitas and can safely say that if you are looking for great lodging in the Bootheel Country, DiAnn's is the place to go.

Room Tip: Call first.

We were caught in a rain storm and stopped to see if DiAnn could accommodate us. The answer yes! We stayed in the "Cowboy Room" what a delight. DiAnn even provided an emergency toilet kit and razor. The room was clean and very nicely decorated in a cowboy theme. King size bed, mini-kitchen,in room coffee, separate bathroom, satellite, high speed internet and Verizon cell service. What more could you ask for on the spur of the moment? This was the smallest unit and it had a great little porch. Rates are very reasonable. WE WILL BE BACK!

Rodeo is a remote location, surrounded by desert and mountains. DiAnn, who has fixed this place up and turned it into a pleasant oasis, is a friendly and accommodating hostess.

My husband and I first stayed at the Mt. Valley Lodge in 1998. We keep returning time and again because of the serenity of the area and the beautiful sunsets we see in the mountains out our window each night. We appreciate the spotless rooms that have everythig you need-even a laundromat on site. The best part of our stay is connecting with the owner-operator who is fun and helpful and always interested in how we are doing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It is a wonder-filled place for Birders, Mountain Bikers, Hikers, and our night sky awakens an awe that brings folks back next year and the year after that to gaze at the heavens. They start calling themselves Astronomers, though some prefer Star Gazers or Incurable Romantics. We have beautiful views of the Chiricahua Mountains, one of the prime destinations for literally hundreds of bird species. Portal, Arizona, famed for being base camp to Birding Afficianados from around the world, is 7 miles away. So when you stay with us, you are close to the action but far from the "Madding Crowd". The Chiricahua Mountains provide a migration corridor above the surrounding desert and rise through seven life zones. Providing a wide range of ecosystems and a variety of plant, animal and bird species, it is one of only two sites in the US where the elegant trogon nests, and it is also home to 16 varieties of hummingbirds. Nestled in the area are hummingbirds, screech owl, great horned owl, elf owl, ring-tailed cat, skunk, coati, gray fox, deer, black bear, javelina, and bighorn sheep. Come and visit. Bring all your relatives. We have cottage, motel and RV accommodations. It is a beautiful place for a family reunion. You can relax by the koi pond while the more energetic strike out to discover the beautiful land that Geronimo and Cochise loved. This country is steeped in the history of the Old West. The famed town of Tombstone is less than 100 miles away. Tucson, Arizona is only a 2 hour drive, while the Mexico border is about an hour away. Rivers, canyons, and mountains are all within easy driving distance. ... more   less
