  • We were on a week long camping trip thru New Mexico and my kids wanted to stay in Red River for a few days because they wanted to go to the Black Mountain Playhouse so bad. We had been there about 4 y...  more »

  • We were told that they would stay open till 8pm or 9pm at the playhouse. Not true. Came at 7pm. We had a group of kids disappointed, upset and crying. Will not be coming back. Thank you for a beautiful evening!😃👍
  • Best place ever, the restaurant and play house is under new management and as just reopened and its amazing. Great food and great fun!! Skating indoor putt putt, arcade, etc
  • We visited the playhouse on a Wednesday evening. It is large and offers a variety of activities. My 5 year old thought it was fun and even wanted to go back the next day. From my perspective, the place is old and clearly isn't generating the revenue necessary for a complete overhaul. It smelled odd and the ancient video games were worn but functional. The roller skating area was big and almost empty. But the worst was the upkeep of the outdoor golf area. It was covered with debris and dog poo. Seriously, lots of dog poo on the grounds and the course.
  • We stayed at the Black Mountain Lodge (Unit 10) over Thanksgiving weekend 2015 and would like to offer a review based on our experience. Summary: We will not stay at this lodge again; we will spend a little extra money to have a few amenities like non-icy steps, a live person available, and prime features of the lodge available for use. The Pros: The rates are affordable and slightly lower than most in the area. The location is conveniently located across the parking lot from the “gold chair” lift (which, incidentally, was the only lift open). The room was very clean and adequately represented in the photos from the website. Everything worked well except the fan in the bathroom. The linen and comforters were really nice. The Cons: No employees were actually present at the lodge and it took a little effort to reach a live person by phone. The steps around the lodge and leading to the units were very icy and there was no one around to salt or clear them-which I thought was very dangerous. However, there was a sign indicating that the steps were icy. As an owner, I would try to minimize injury by actually removing the ice. But as I mentioned, there were no actual employees present at the lodge-so plan on bringing your own salt and salting them yourself. BOTH the restaurant and Playhouse that are advertised on the website were CLOSED. This was absolutely the most disappointing part of the stay. The website indicates that hours may vary during the “slow season,” but as first timers we had no idea when that is. Since this was a holiday weekend and the opening weekend for the mountain, we assumed everything would be open. Quite honestly, we would have never booked this lodge had we known these were going to be closed. The rooms do not have (land-line) phones and the Wi-Fi didn’t work. (The website indicates that the Wi-Fi is slow during the “busy season”-but according to the owner this weekend was considered part of the “slow season”-so not sure why the Wi-Fi didn’t work).
  • I live here now.
