Ruidoso is the Spanish word for noisy and it refers to the Rio Ruidoso that runs through the picturesque village where you’ll find River Bend Lodge, the ideal place for your wonderful mountain getaway. River Bend Lodge is the perfect riverside house with stone steps leading from your patio right down to the river’s edge.
When you arrive at River Bend Lodge, you’ll discover a wonderful large cabin nestled in the trees with a carport and space for parking in the drive. If you visit in the winter, we advise coming in a four-wheel-drive vehicle and/or chains. Winters can be snowy and icy in the mountains. Driving conditions can be challenging.
River Bend Lodge is a spectacular home replete with creature comforts and everything you need to have a relaxing getaway with friends and family.
Your lodge includes both an air-conditioned main house and guest cottage complete with full kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. Altogether the cabin and guest cottage will sleep 12.
Your main living room features high ceilings and a huge stone fireplace. The room is a cozy, yet elegant space with dual leather couches, and an antler based coffee table that blends perfectly with the mountain cabin décor. There’s also a cozy sitting area off the kitchen where you’ll find another fireplace, recliner, armchair and a large TV with cable and a DVD player. Altogether there are three TVs with cable and DVD players within River Bend Lodge. Plus you have free Wi-Fi in case there are members of your group who want to play games or send photos back home.
Your River Bend Lodge kitchen is a masterpiece in itself. High-beamed ceilings and rustic cabinetry complement expansive granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. You’ll love the huge refrigerator with ice and water door dispenser. Preparing snacks or full course meals for your hungry group is a pleasure in this well-equipped kitchen. The right equipment can make all the difference when you’re cooking for a group. You also have a large gas grill out on the patio where you can prepare some sizzling steaks or burgers for everyone. There’s a wet bar right inside the lodge where you can mix up cocktails for your guests to enjoy on the patio. Just buy your supplies in town and set up to serve.
You can dine out on the patio where you can listen to the river flowing nearby or gather your group at the indoor dining table for six. Additional guests can pull up a chair at the nearby breakfast bar. You’ll love the mountain vibe of full tree trunk beam supports and stone wainscoting. What a pleasure to dine at River Bend Lodge.
You also have the option to drive down into the heart of Ruidoso and dine at Hall of Flame Burgers, Cornerstone Bakery and Company, Log Cabin Restaurant, or any of 59 eateries in and around Ruidoso. There’s also live entertainment at some of these establishments so you can kick up your heels after dinner.
You may instead opt for a quiet evening around River Bend Lodge where you can challenge your guests to a game of pool, watch a movie, or settle in for a good chat beside a roaring fire.
As night falls, you’ll be more than ready to head off to bed. Golfing, hiking, biking, and touring the sights will do that to you. Your master bedroom features a king-sized bed and your own private access to the deck through French doors. After a full day of fun, slip out on the deck and spend a few minutes listening to the river flowing over the rocks and smell the pine-scented air. If you’re still not ready for sleep, turn on your private TV and watch a little late night programming. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to fall into a deep restful sleep.
