Guestbook comments from the owner
Wow what a Beautiful Place. The views from the upper deck were so fantastic. The forest is all around you. We walked right out of the Cabin to the Lake. Fishing was good. Our Dogs had a blast ! The Cabin is quaint and has everything we needed. Hot Tub at night you can see the stars unlike the city. Our only complaint is we couldn't stay longer.

Hi

My name is Connie

If you have any Questions, please do not hesitate to call me.

connie kern purchased this cabin in 2005

After camping around Lake Vallecito for many years, and staring at this historical cabin next to Graham Creek Campground. I knew that place could be my heaven here on earth. Back when it was just a bunk house for the ranch hands working the cattle ranch where Lake Vallecito exists today. In the years that followed rooms were added, including a kitchen. You can still look around and see some original walls and décor. The property is a half-acre however completely surround by BLM and National Forests . The most spectecular view of the Needle Mountains and the Lake.

A good friend of ours owns and operates the ONLY Marina on Lake Vallecito. His name is Stan and mention your staying at Connie's and Brad's cabin and he'll give you a 20% discount on a boat rental.

Beautiful but Dirty

  • 2 of 5
The property is beautiful, and the location is perfect for a stress free get away. Views of the mountains and lake are spectacular; however, the cabin was filthy and much smaller than expected. We were afraid to sit on the recliner without covering it with a blanket we brought from home. We were also afraid to walk on the carpet without our shoes on. It is obvious that a lot of work has been done to the outside of the cabin, and it looks great. If equal or greater work was done to the inside, I would consider a return trip, but not until.

Helpful understanding owner

  • 5 of 5
We were scheduled to stay at the cabin on Vallecito Lake for 5 days to relax and play with our dogs. The week we were to arrive at the cabin one of our dogs became ill so we took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with cancer and he had very little time left. We were advised not to take him to higher elevations since the tumors were in his lungs and restricting his breathing. I called and spoke with Connie immediately, still crying and she was very helpful and concerned for us. We had to cancel our trip and Connie has been very helpful getting us a refund even though we had to cancel just a few days before our trip. We will definitely stay here in the future. Very helpful owner.

We stayed a week it was a great week. Small Cabin, great site. The King bed was very good. My kids 6yrs and 8yrs loved it. They both caught 15-16 inch rainbow trout with me right in front of the cabin from the paddle boat. Lake level was very high. Saw deer in the yard and a osprey in a nest close to the cabin. My dogs loved the woods. The whole family wants to go back. Shower is small but who cares your in a cabin on a lake I recommend cooking on the BBQ as the patio is a strong point. The kitchen is small with metal cabinets. I is not the Ritz but "Its a cabin on a lake!" This reminded me of a cabin my family stayed at when I was a kid. It was loads of fun. I could see that they were working on the Garage on the property. However this was not active while we were there and the site was cleaned up. We all loved it there

excellant decision

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the cabin and it was great. Very clean and warm, made you feel at home. My husband has a very stressful job and this was just what was needed. We found it very relaxing and quiet. We will be returning in the fall and we recommending this to all our friends. The owner was very helpful.

Flirting With Disaster

  • 1 of 5
We booked 5 nights at the Lake Front Cabin in early August. When we arrived late on a Monday afternoon, after a long drive, we were excited. The cabin is in a lovely, secluded spot on Vallecito Lake. Although the reservoir water was down to an alarmingly low level -- so low that the cabin can hardly be described as "lakefront" any longer -- the owner had warned us in advance and we were prepared for it.

However, we were not prepared for the second cabin under construction adjacent to ours (not pictured in the photos). Although there was nobody there when we arrived, the site was littered with sawdust and power tools, leading us to worry that the peaceful stillness would soon be shattered by a screaming buzz saw.

We explored the surroundings, finding an odd assortment of stuff scattered about, including a broken arcade game ("Frogger"), a non-working fire pit, and a couple of gas grills that have definitely seen better days. But the cabin itself was charming (from the outside). Undeterred, we went in.

Things went quickly downhill. My 10-year-old son wrinkled his nose and said, "It smells funny in here." It did. The cabin was chock full of knick-knacks and curios, and there was a dusty, musty odor permeating every room. My wife inspected the kitchen and pronounced it too dirty to cook in. The bathroom was no better -- not the level of cleanliness one expects at this price level. Thanks to the dust, my allergies went into overdrive and I began what would become a non-stop sneeze-fest.

As it was getting late, and we had come such a long way, we decided to stay the night. My wife cooked outside on the grill to avoid using the kitchen. As the sky darkened, we discovered that the owner was something of a tinkerer. There were many electrical "improvements" around the place, with lights everywhere. Unfortunately, many of them did not work. Yes, there are five TVs, but we could only get two of them to work, and we only found one remote. The WiFi network password didn't work, either.

The next morning, after a dismal shower in the tiny shower stall, I declared our cabin experience over. We packed up and left. I emailed the owner, and left a phone message, to tell her we were leaving. We didn't hear back for two days.

In the meantime, we found a much nicer, larger and cleaner place on a lake in Pagosa Springs for 2/3 the price. We had to eat the cost of the 4 nights we didn't stay in the cabin, but in the end it was worth it. Our vacation was saved.

Secluded Lake Cabin

  • 4 of 5
We are an active senior couple, looking to escape Albuquerque heat and explore southern Colorado. The lakeside location and amenities were most attractive. We found the cabin clean and as described .Due to the ongoing drought, the lake level has dropped but still provides excellent kayaking and fishing. The owner disclosed this prior to rental. There was very little traffic on the lake during the week and we had the place to ourselves. The cabin is exactly adjacent to a National Forest campground, but is mostly enclosed by trees and shrubbery. It was quiet during our stay, though you are aware of nearby campsites. The hot tub was a treat - water was crystal clear. We took our own food as we like to cook. Great restaurants in Durango (18 mi the back way) and enough supplies at the local stores for odds and ends. We did not try the Schank House, although it was recommended. We highly recommend the drive on the San Juan Skyway north, through the southern Rockies, and various mining towns It is quite spectacular. Owners provided contact #'s and the rental confirmation and stay went very smoothly. We would recommend this property as a quiet getaway, with access to great outdoor activities and scenery.
