We stayed here for 4 days (could have stayed longer) - has all the basic necessities for less money than other cabins in the area. Being pet/kid friendly was a major plus for us. Being able to cook our own meals helped us to save money. 5 year old LOVED the loft and claimed it as her room.
Creek is great, not too deep so if you have little ones you don't have to worry about them. Our daughter and dog jumped in - as ice cold as it was - and splashed around. It was so neat being able to sleep to the sounds of the creek - very relaxing. I liked the fact that the property is large so you are not right up against the neighbor. It is a little challenging to locate - so have your GPS or a good map.
2 families might get a little cramped but house was perfect for our small family. Plus, there is so much to do in the area - you won't spend a lot of time at the house anyway :) There is no AC but we didn't need it. We had cell service (but no data access) which could be a good thing if you want to really get away. We went to Durango almost everyday so not a huge deal for us. It was actually nice to get the family away from the TV / playstation / internet for a change.
We rode the Narrow Gauge railroad, rode horses, drove around sightseeing, spent a day just hanging out by the creek at the cabin, great fun. As a side note - Piedra River Resort (google them) allows small children to ride on their own horse with a lead to the guide. This is very hard to find - most places have a minimum 6 or 7 year old requirement. It is in Pagosa Springs which is about 40-50 miles away. Use common sense though, horses can get spooked or be stubborn. Our daughter knows how to hang on and we didn't have any worries about letting her ride. For a little safer ride - Elk Lodge - which is very close to the cabin, allowed us to walk the horse on a lead while our daughter got to ride for $8 (which our daughter loved almost as much as the trail ride and it was way cheaper).
Property owners were awesome. Very helpful and attentive to our needs. I can't say enough good things about them. Made us feel very welcome.
If we ever get a chance to come back to the area, we will definitely stay here again or maybe the owner's other cabin. The other cabin is simply awesome - right on the lake with spectacular views - very unique & private as it is in the middle of a National Forest camp ground. Would be great for larger or multiple families.
great place to stay very comfortable for our family of 4. The kids loved the loft, or the launch as they called it, will stay again. creek was great very relaxing.
Family of four had a wonderful time here. Cabin is comfortable, quaint, and private. Area and lake is super nice and quiet. Daughter slept in the loft, Son on the futon, and us in the front bedroom. Plenty of fans in the house to keep it cool in the summer. Creek in the back was just perfect. Not too deep, and not too shallow. Our Aussie & 2 teenagers loved the creek. Wonderful to sit on the outside bench in the morning with my coffee and listen to the creek. Lake really close, and super quiet lake, not crowded at all. While we were there we took a look at the other two places we were considering and this little A frame cabin was by far superior. The others were like apartment living (too close to each other). The little A frame had no funky smells, was clean, and perfect for our needs. Yes, we will rent this place again and yes, we would refer it to our friends. Cabin is small, but who wants to stay indoors all the time when you are in such a beautiful place as this area. Lake was perfect, creek was perfect. Love, love, loved it.
Thank you Connie and Brad! Had a great time and really enjoyed the gas and log fire pits!! Brad so nice to meet and talk with you!
See you again! Hopefully soon! D & D
Good for four people, yet two need to be able to climb a ladder to loft. Creek was not impressive. Stay was average.
This cabin was extremely cozy and we were still able to fit six people. The backyard is right on the creek, which was fun for everyone. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get away for a while.
