The 25-room Copper King Lodge offers
couples, families, and ski enthusiasts a budget, no-frills vacation directly on the Red River with prime trout fishing and direct access to an area chair lift. The
property also features a charming terrace with a hot tub, picnic tables, and
grills -- all with waterfront views. Cabin-style rooms have kitchens,
fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, and balconies. The hotel doesn’t have a

Motel property that suits both families and couples
Copper King Lodge is a cozy, cabin-themed motel
that blends in with the ski town and lush pine forest surroundings, suiting
families and couples. The beautiful Red River -- offering prime rainbow trout
fishing -- runs behind the property. Charming hand-carved wooden benches are
provided at every turn along with signage, statuary, and totems. The nearby ski lift is also visible from
the lodge. The office is quaint, featuring a wooden front desk and large windows that provide a lot of natural light.
On the banks of the Red River, near an array of attractions
The Copper King is conveniently located in
the town of Red River and near the Copper Chair Lift. Motels, restaurants, bars,
and hiking trails are within walking distance and the Red River itself runs
right by the lodge. The Red River Ski Area -- in the Southern Rockies -- is a
nine-minute walk northwest while Carson National Forest is more than an
hour’s drive west. Other nearby attractions include Red River Community
House, Red River Conference Center, and Bobcat Pass Wilderness Adventures. Taos
Pueblo, a famed Native-American historical landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a 48-minute drive south.
Large rooms with cabin decor, Southwestern fabrics, and riverfront porches

rooms and suites. Knotty pine walls, hand-carved wooden furniture, and Southwestern
textiles give rooms a cabin feel. Features include flat-screen TVs, DVD
players, fireplaces, mini-fridges or full refrigerators, and microwaves. There’s
no air-conditioning and furnishings in some spaces are outdated (the patterned, motel-quality comforters in particular will not suit all tastes). Kitchenettes or
