Summer Means Cool Cabins in the Chama River Valley
When the days really start to heat up all over the south and southwest, we are truly blessed to be in the Chama River Valley of New Mexico. Set high in the Southern Rocky Mountains, our daytime temperatures rarely break 80. Most days are in the 70s or even the 60s. Clear skies are the norm, too with a good chance of an afternoon shower to help cool things off.
At night we sleep under a star-filled sky. You’ll need an extra blanket or two most nights. Even in mid-summer it’s not unusual for the mercury to dip into the low 50s or high 40s. So while the lower elevations of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Texas are sweltering, you’ll be nice and cozy at the Timbers.
Though we don’t take many guests, we are open by request in the summer months. Our vacation rentals are a great way for families and smaller groups to enjoy the best that the Chama River Valley offers. In the summer you can ride the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, fish for mountain brook, rainbow and brown trout in the rivers, or try your hand at fishing for sizeable lake trout and tasty Kokanee salmon in the nearby Heron Lake.
If you prefer more active sports like mountain biking, whitewater rafting, hiking or boating, the Timbers at Chama makes a great base for exploring our spectacular outdoors opportunities.
With only two properties set on over 400 private acres, you are assured of a peaceful stay. Cook your catch or enjoy one of our local colorful restaurants. Either way a good meal is in store.
Interested in one of our cabins? Take a look at the Hacienda and the Guest House. Then give us a call. We are kind of informal about this, but if your dates work out and we can meet the needs of your family or small group of companions, we’ll be glad to work things out.
Hope we can meet you this summer and show you what it’s like to live “Timbers Style”.
