Activities/Attractions: Eagle Nest is located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, nestled in the Moreno Valley between New Mexico’s two highest peaks - Baldy Mountain (12,441 feet) and Wheeler Peek (13,161 feet) - at the junction of US Hwy 64 and State Hwy 38.

Situated at 8,300 feet above sea level, the village offers high-country terrain, including mountains, valleys, ranch lands, and scenic vistas with pine, aspen, wildflowers, and clean air surrounding beautiful Eagle Nest lake. The abundant wildlife in the area includes bear, elk, mountain cats, beavers and eagles - both bald and golden.

The surrounding mountains are still a source of life and commerce, treating visitors to year-round recreation - some of the best scenery, hiking trails, big game hunting, fishing, and snow skiing to be found anywhere. To the delight of ice fishermen, winter ice thickness on the Lake often reaches two and one-half to three feet.

Eagle Nest Lake, right outside our back door, is world renown for trout fishing. Just over the pass, is the Cimarron River where the fly fishing is legendary.

Our restaurant is a culinary delight set in an 1890s hotel lobby. We feature authentic New Mexican and Southwestern cuisine with a twist. Nearby you'll find:

  • 10 minutes to Angel Fire
  • 10 minutes to Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area
  • 20 minutes to Red River
  • 45 minutes to Taos
  • 90 minutes to Santa Fe

"This place is right next to the lake. Great staff, manager is very informative about the fishing and area attractions. Rate is the best around. Made me feel like I was at home."

"The Laguna Vista Lodge in my opinion is the best place to stay in Eagle Nest. The room variety is great we took a tour of the place and they have anything you would want. There is a restaurant and saloon on site which made it so convenient for us after snow boarding all day. The rooms a very clean and the next time we go to the Angel Fire or Red River area we will be staying here."
