Sit back and relax... your mountain adventure is about to begin! The Aspen West Townhouse Complex is home to several Red Riverites and is a great location for anyone eager to see it all. Located near the east end of town, this townhouse is still close to it all. Walking distance to entertainment, shopping, restaurants, nature trail, and fishing.
This townhouse can sleep from 4 to 14. The interlocking door allows you to rent just the efficiency (ground level): Queen bed, Twin w/ trundle, 1 bath and full kitchen OR just the top remaining 3 levels: 3 bedrooms w/ Queen, Queen, 4 Twins, Queen Sleeper, 2 baths, full kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, wash/dryer OR take BOTH!!! Renting both units gets you enough sleeping arrangements for 14 with access to all 4 levels.
All 4 levels provides you with 2 entrances: one to the efficiency and one to the upper 3 levels with an interlocking door joining both units. Don't miss out on the balcony on the 3rd level (this level is the common area consisting of full kitchen, 1 bath, living and dining area.) Sit out on the balcony and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa in the cool mountain air! You may be lucky enough to watch a bear stroll by in the early morning.

Red River is such a majestic place. Although it is small--only one mile long and 3 blocks wide -- this place is huge with heart. This is one place you'll always feel at home! That's why folks have been coming here for 30 years and bringing generations that follow the same trend.

I love to travel and see the world, but when it gets really hot in Texas, it is time to go to the mountains. Although I have visited all 7 continents, there is something about Red River that has captured my imagination. Perhaps it is the friendly town. Perhaps the cool mountain air and stunning views. Perhaps it is my encounters with wildlife: deer, elk, bear, wild turkey, squirrels, birds, you name it. Perhaps it is finding out that my great great grandfather visited here during the mining heyday and invested in the community. Perhaps it is the wealth of history and the charm of an old mining town that has reinvented itself. Now that I'm retired, I like to bring my 3 dogs for a month in the summer where we hike together and explore together in my 4WD. I find the peaceful atmosphere conducive to writing the book I'm working on. I hope you will enjoy my townhouses as much as I've enjoyed decorating them and sharing them with other travelers.
A friend invited me to visit her townhouse when I was going through a tough period in my life. I fell in love with the friendly town, the wildlife, the mountains and cool summer weather. Since it is only 10 hours from my home, I decided it was time to buy a place and explore further. Every time I come, I find something new to see or do. I recently found out about my great great grandfather's experience here by buying an old newspaper in one of the gift shops. I suppose I have a genetic connection to this place!
Words cannot adequately describe the feeling of sitting on the balcony with a cup of hot chocolate, watching the sun turn the mountains from gray to pink to glowing red. For the early riser, one might see bears wandering through the nearby creek on their way to the river or deer munching on the bushes. On the other hand, if you are a nightlife person, the two local bars provide great live music and are a short two blocks away.
Many acitivities are available within a 2 hour drive: rafting on the Rio Grande in Taos, an historic spa at Ojo Caliente, an Indian Pueblo in Taos, herds of bison and elk on a drive through Ted Turner's ranch, hiking in Wild and Scenic Rivers BLM land, a fish hatchery near Questa, boating and water activities on the lake in Eagle Nest, the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Angel Fire, a ghost town at Elizabethtown, musems and an old hacienda in Taos, 4 wheeling along old jeep roads, the Palisades rock formation in Cimarron Canyon, golf at 3 nearby courses, the old D. H. Lawrence home on the way to Taos, old mines and mining camps to explore on jeep roads and hiking trails--one of which is near the top of the ski lift which runs in the summer, Rio Grande Gorge, Earthship (a self sufficient community built entirely from recycled stuff), and many other interesting things on the 150 mile loop know as the Enchanted Circle.
