Inn of the Mountain Gods tour

Guide Jackie explains the significance of the decor
Amazing fountain at the entrance
With beautiful views of the mountains, lake, golf course and zip line, our guide, Jackie, told us about Inn of the Mountain Gods. A Mescalero Apache Hotel/Casino, we learned that the lake is stocked with spotted trout; the ski hill is very popular; elk, duck and brown bears often visit the golfers; and the walls of the hotel are filled with the works of Native American artists.
We gathered at the base of the beautifully detailed
lobby fountain to listen to the history of Inn of the
Mountain Gods. The fountain resembles a woven basket
