Copper Canyon Riverside Lodge

The Copper Canyon Riverside Lodge is located just off the main square in Batopilas village at the bottom of the Copper Canyon. This lodge falls under the specialty hotel category and is a boutique-style hotel. Once the privately owned home of the Bigler family in the 1800’s, it was converted to a hotel back in the early 90’s and covers an entire block. The Copper Canyon Riverside Lodge boasts private gardens, hand painted murals and is filled with antiques. Each of the 14 guest rooms have antique beds and the inconvenient luxury of claw foot bathtubs.

There’s a small library that holds the answers to most of your Batopilas History questions. Feel free to browse through the old books, antique records, and booklets from the silver mining days and relive the past. Your host, Martin, serves a continental breakfast every morning that includes a variety of fresh fruits right off our own trees, home-baked breads and coffee or tea.

The Copper Canyon Riverside Lodge and Real de Minas Lodges are located in the center of Batopilas. Luxury lodging in the town that time forgot.

Guest comment: “Riverside Lodge is located in a deep canyon that takes a bit of effort to get to, but it is totally worth the effort. Batopilas is 3-4 hours on a long winding road from Creel, deep into the canyon and silver mining history. The hotel is really a grand casa set back in time with all the history and nooks and crannies to explore. It may be hard to reserve, but requesting this hotel through booking.com is the best bet. Martin, the host, was totally amazing, sending us on walks or rides, but then mysteriously being near the end of our route to see if we were fine. Settle into a claw foot tub full of bubbles and listen to the past in a room of antiques and fine linens. Total atmosphere!” Stayed October 2011, traveled with friends.
