About Us

At the center of Red River, NM, the Ponderosa Lodge offers the perfect combination of somewhat rustic rooms with modern conveniences such as satellite TV and free wireless Internet. We believe a lodge should assist its guests in experiencing all an area has to offer. With that in mind we have collected extensive material on the Red River and northern New Mexico areas to enable us to help our guests create their own memorable vacation.


Your Red River New Mexico lodging adventure starts when you walk through the front door and continues with the personal attention you receive from our staff. We are conveniently located in the Heart of Red River so it is a short walk to restaurants, shopping and other activities. We hope that a stay with us will evoke a desire to return not only to New Mexico but to Red River and the Ponderosa Lodge.


The Red River Ponderosa Lodge was built in the mid ’80s. It is not only in the center of town right on Main Street, but is also in the center of the Red River Lodging community. About half of our guest rooms have fully furnished kitchens as well as a wood burning fireplace (we furnish the wood). There are some “pet friendly” rooms available for a nominal nightly fee.
