Calamity Jane’s Restaurant  

Step back in time and enjoy!

Our restaurant is a culinary delight set in an 1890s hotel lobby. We feature authentic New Mexican and Southwestern cuisine with a twist. Large menu with great variety. Children’s favorites on their own menu.

In the March 2016 issue, New Mexico Magazine mentioned Calamity Jane’s restaurant in the “where to eat now” section under worth the drive – on the Enchanted Circle:  Calamity Jane’s is in an old hotel in Eagle Nest.  Order the hand-breaded chicken-fried steak.

Laguna Vista Saloon  

The Historic Saloon and former Gambling & Dance Hall was a favorite watering hole of the Lonesome Dove movie crew.

You can find colorful locals and international tourists hanging out in the Saloon when you visit Eagle Nest.

After Skiing in Angel Fire or Red River, join us at the Saloon for a drink by the fireplace.


Walk to everything in Eagle Nest from our central location on Main Street. Enjoy our boardwalk.

If you’ve ever dreamed of running a quaint little shop in a picturesque mountain village, you owe it to yourself to see this setup! Trout fishing almost out your back door, skiing and golf literally minutes away.

Haunted Brothel  

The history of the Laguna Vista Restaurant and Saloon dates back to the late 1890s.  The gold-mining camp of Elizabethtown, five miles north of here, was founded in 1867.  One of the residents in the late 1890s transported rejected railroad ties from Ute Park to Elizabethtown for two summers to build a hotel.  He left for the winter and returned in the spring to discover his railroad ties had been stolen, and a new hotel had been constructed in Therma, now Eagle Nest.   You are sitting in what was the lobby of the El Monte Hotel, which was built with the stolen railroad ties, and looking out the window on one of the routes of the Santa Fe Trail.
