After retiring, a friend from work bought the Stone House Lodge (SHL) on El Vado Lake. In Oct 2011, I decided to visit. There are five cabins, RV hookups, many campsites, four trailers, two apartments, and the lodge itself. I stayed in Cabin #1 which had a spectacular view of El Vado Lake. There was a fully equipped kitchen in the cabin and both gas and wood grills outside, but I mostly ate the excellent cooking in the SHL cafe. Don't miss the homemade cinnamon rolls! In their general store they rent boats, and sell fishing licenses and tackle. Gasoline and groceries are also available. There is also a playground in the camping area. To see many more pictures, take a look the SHL album on my Shutterfly website for the Jujube Workshop and North Central New Mexico Road Trip that I took on 29 Sep - 4 Oct 2011.

Unique Qualities: It is really close to three fishing "holes": El Vado Lake, Heron Lake, and the Rio Brazos. Also, it is common to see deer and wild turkeys on the grounds.

Address: HC 75 BOX 1022, Los Ojos, New Mexico 87551
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: To get there, travel north from Espanola on US-84 through the Abiquiu area, then turn west on NM-95 about two miles past Tierra Amarilla, and go 14 miles on paved road to the SHL, passing through Lake Heron State Park on the way.
