Stayed one night in a room and one night in a cabin. Comfortable beds, all the necessities, and the friendliest host/hostess you could ever hope to meet. Try to book early, they fill up fast. Had a great stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was so relaxing. The cabin had a queen bed and room for 2 to sleep in the loft. The were 2 electric heaters, which were needed in September. The kitchen had a coffee maker (with coffee), microwave, Frig, 2 burner stovetop, dishes, pots, etc.

I stayed here last night (09/13/2016) and loved it. Very quiet and the room was very clean. Nice shower. Comfortable beds. Benches on the front porch were great for socializing. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Access to the river was easy and so peaceful. We sat at the gazeebo and even saw trout in the river. I would...

After riding all day on a motorcycle through rain, sleet, and hail we were more than ready to dismount and begin warming up and drying off. We were greeted promptly and courteously and checked in expediently. Within minutes we were back to feeling human again!! River bend is clean, convenient, and professionally run. I would recommend it highly to anyone.

friendly, very clean, pleasant room ...IF ONLY the perfumed air ( cleaning products - air freshener? ahhh carpet deoderizer? ) could be eliminated - openging window and door didn't seem to help. Slowish internet. ..but that expected up here in the forest. Sink is in room, not our ideal.

I really enjoyed my stay here! Yes, the rooms are very basic, but the friendliness of the staff and the location of lodge make up for it! I am hoping my family and I get to stay in a cabin next time! It would be nice to take advantage of the fire pits and the nice green recreational area in...

The cabin is in a nice location. Unfortunately, it is very basic. Very little room to put your stuff, no closet or set of drawers. If you plan to cook take the basics with you....salt and pepper, cutting board, oil, measuring cups. There are plates, plastic glasses, coffee mugs and bowls. If you like wine, bring a cork screw and...

What a charming rustic lodge. The river, the fire pits, the deck overlooking the river. So charming. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, plenty of space. We could have stayed here a month! Was a pleasure getting to know the owner and share stories about the lodge my parents used to own. Don't hesitate to book your stay here.

Boy, I'm stumped by the other (rave) reviews of this place. Yes, the managers were very nice and there's a pleasant gazebo by the river, but our room was dark as the inside of a cow (reading lights not too bad, tho), mildew-smelling in the bathroom and so cramped that the two of us felt like we were in a...

We spent two nights at the Chama River Bend Lodge. We have 4 kids, and this place was perfect for our stay! We had a medium cabin steps from the river, there is a small playground, and it was very close to the train. If we ever make it back to Chama, NM, we will definitely consider staying here again!

Winter offers excellent cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, a hot air balloon rally, and ice fishing on the Rio Chamita, as well as nearby El Vado and Heron lakes.

After a long, fun-filled day in the woods, relax under the stars in our outdoor hot tub, or enjoy s'mores and conversation cozied around a fire-pit near the river.
