The latest family trend is to take a “flexcation”. This term refers to individuals booking trips outside of the higher-priced travel seasons. This is a longer vacation where play and work are mixed together. If you missed out on your annual summer trip to Red River this year or looking for an excuse to have an extended stay, consider a flexcation to Red River, New Mexico. Consider joining the families that have already taken a staycation and are now ready to try new experiences and take a break.

Red River is the perfect destination for a flexcation and I am here to tell you why!

Save Money and Stay Longer

We offer a special discount if you book a property for 7 days or more! This extended stay 10% discount is taken off the nightly rate of 7 nights or more! Traveling to our small mountain town during a different time of year than you normally would can open your eyes to new experiences and new beginnings like seeing the leaves change colors or snowshoe through the Enchanted Circle during a light snow dusting. 

Work and Play in Red River, NM

High-speed internet is available in most of our properties, making working from home easy while you enjoy the cooler weather and gorgeous views of the mountains and wildlife. Visiting Red River allows you to take a step back and enjoy life at a much slower pace. Explore the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and enjoy the time away from the city as you spend time with your family and relax. Sleep in a king size bed and wake up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and start a fire in the fireplace as you work. Take a break from work and go for a small hike through the Carson National Forest.

Plan an extended stay next fall to watch the foliage and spend your days riding ROVs and hiking. Schedule a time to hike to the top of Wheeler Peak, the tallest point in New Mexico. Visit the Red River Visitors Center for events and things to do while you enjoy your extended stay with us. If your work can be done remotely then a flexcation is in your future!

Day trips to surrounding towns

You can pencil in a day trip to Taos while on your extended stay here in the northeastern corner of New Mexico. Take advantage of the small shops and dining in the town square in Taos, New Mexico. Alamosa, Colorado is another option for a day trip. Pack your bathing suits and a lunch and head to the Great Sand Dunes swimming pool in Hooper, Colorado. This hot springs pool is open year round with gorgeous views of the mountains. 

People experience happiness when they welcome new experiences and when they have more variety in their life. Do something different with your family this year or next, you won’t regret it. Why not take an adventure when you can visit your favorite town? Make your reservation today and make flexcations a regular thing.
