Arnold's River Retreat is a beautiful two story home that sits on the river. This large home has six bedrooms and five bathrooms that will give many in your party the space they desire! Upon entry of this home you will see the living room to the right, featuring new living room furniture and a flat screen TV with a DVD player where you can choose to watch cable or enjoy watching movies brought from home. One of the sofas in the living room is a sleeper sofa and can be used as a queen bed for additional sleeping. Sitting right off of the living room, you will notice a small sunroom -- pull back the shades to enjoy the sunlight on a cold day or to enjoy reading! To the opposite side of the living room, there is a door leading to the accessible garage -- inside you will find the perfect place for the young ones to play. Arnold's provides an Air Hockey and a Ping-Pong table for guests enjoyment! Just past those rooms, you will come to find the kitchen and dining area.

The dining room table is located off to the side of the kitchen and has additional seating at the kitchen bar. In the yard you will find two picnic tables and a gas BBQ grill for cooking out! Let’s not forget the fire pit for everyone to enjoy the fire while listening to the river that is just a gate away.

At Arnold's River Retreat guests are given free laundry detergent courtesy of Red River Real Estate.  The first main level bedroom has a king bed for guests' comfort, with access to the hallway ¾ bathroom. The next room over also includes another king bed with a twin bed off to the side. This spacious second bedroom has a small flat-screen TV, as well as access to its own private full bathroom.

Everyone was super nice! We even had to call them after we left because a ring was left in the house. They went right over & found the ring & are shipping it to us. Thank goodness there is still honest people! Thanks!!
Plenty of room for our group at Arnolds River Retreat. We liked that it was just west of town & we could ride our ranger to the trails.

Before reserving any vacation home, please read through our terms and conditions and make note of our cancelation policy!

Here are some answers to questions frequently asked:

Can I bring more people than a house will accommodate?
Due to fire codes and restrictions we do not allow people to bring more than the maximum occupancy for each individual property. This does include both children and adults.

What does Red River Real Estate provide for our vacation home?
We provide several things for our guests to use! Things like toilet paper, trash bags, bar soaps, towels, linens, a ration of firewood (for winter guests), gas cylinders for gas BBQ grills, and we make sure there are enough kitchen necessities for as many as the house sleeps.

What is check-in/check-out time?
Check-in time is between 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM. If you think you will arrive early, ask us about our early check-in. Check-out is at or before 10:00 AM. If you leave before we open, please leave your keys in our drop box that is to the right of our office doors!

Where do we go when we get to Red River?
Once you arrive you will come to our office. We are located at 420 East Main Street. Once you are here, we will have you sign your check in paperwork and give you keys. Then you will have the house to yourself.

Do you provide firewood for fire pits?
Red River Real Estate does not provide wood specifically for fire pits. However, if your home has a wood burning fireplace, we provide a ration of wood(winter only). You can feel free to use this wood for fire pits! If you burn through the ration, you can buy more from our office.

Can we park an RV at the house?
None of our vacation homes allow the parking of RV’s. For more information on where you are able to park an RV please call our Town Hall at (575) 754 – 2277.

Do we really need a 4 wheel drive vehicle or chains?
We strongly suggest having a 4 Wheel drive vehicle or chains. Red River gets a lot of snow and we would not want anyone to be getting stuck on their vacation.

Is there a Laundromat in town?
Yes! There is a Laundromat on the west end of town. Make a right at the fork, going toward the upper valley, and you will see it on the right by the RV Park.

Is there a pharmacy in Red River?
Unfortunately, there is no pharmacy in Red River. The closest pharmacy is located next to Family Dollar in Questa, which is about a 20-minute drive in good road conditions.

Best Care Pharmacy: (575) 483-6922

I need to have something sent to Red River. How can I do this?
Red River Real Estate will allow guests to send items to our office. Please make sure to give us a call to let us know before it is sent. Also, make sure your name is on the package.

420 East Main St
Red River, NM 87558

What is the nearest airport?
There is a small airport in Taos, NM and we are currently offering/providing a shuttle service to our guests that fly into Taos. Call for more information. The second closest airport is Albuquerque, NM, which is about a 3.5-hour drive during good road conditions.
