FAMILY FRIENDLY HIGH MOUNTAIN LOG HOME 15 MIN TO GREAT SKIING

South Fork House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in South Fork on the east side of the Continental Divide below Wolf Creek Pass and Ski Area, this cozy 2 bedroom log home is used quite often by the owners; you will probably find it as well equipped as your home. It contains many amenities you won't find in other rentals. This is the ideal vacation headquarters for families, seniors and honeymooners.

Situated on three lots, the deer and kids visiting this home have plenty of space to play. The kitchen is fully stocked with just about everything you could need. Table seating for six in the dining area, also on the deck. Two queen beds and a queen sleeper-sofa with all linens furnished provide comfortable sleeping for six. Off-street parking and covered RV/Boat/Camper parking. Flat-screen TV with Bose enhanced sound, additional TV console reserved strictly for your DVDs and game box. WiFi is available for the computer addict.

Surrounded by the pristine mountain wilderness of the Rio Grande National Forest on the west side of the magnificent San Luis Valley (the largest alpine valley in the world), South Fork offers numerous 4-wheel drive and ATV trails, snowmobiling, hiking, horseback riding, river rafting, hunting, fishing, wildlife watching and photography, mountain biking and all possible wilderness activities.

At any time before, during, or after your stay, your information may be shared with guestchecker.

My wife and I married in 1959. I am currently retired, but my woodworking hobby shows in the handmade furnishings in the house. Her knitting skills are on display through the house. Our three children, 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren enjoy playing in the snow and hiking the woods.

Thomas Smallwood purchased this house in 1993

After years of hiking the national forest and wilderness area, we vacationed in Lake City. When departing we went through South Fork, saw and fell in love with the town and this house. Here we have everything.

We enjoy the quiet, feeding the deer in the yard in the fall, and being in the mountains. All the activities we enjoy are here, most at no additional cost. Even though the house is located in a subdivision, it seems to be very remote. We also have some of the best, most helpful neighbors in the world

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful spot to get away for the weekend! Cabin was well-maintained and sported every amenity. Fireplace was cozy, and the heater worked just fine, too. Wifi was strong, had a great time watching movies, playing games, and eating home-cooked meals with friends.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
This property was clean and had all the essentials available for our use. We stayed four nights and went to the ski lodge at Wolf Creek during the day. My overall experience was great. The only reason I rated as good instead of excellent is because the hot water heater is set up on a timer for the use of two people. There was an override switch which was supposed to make it possible for everyone in the group to have plenty of hot water for showers. Unfortunately, we could not ever figure out when to push the override to make sure there was hot water for everyone. Do you push it everyday at the start of the day, before the first shower of the day, after each shower, etc???

Overall great property, comfortable, well stocked and clean...If I stayed again I would definitely want more thorough instructions on how to operate the hot water.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that this guest did not understand the workings of the 40 gal. hot water heater. It is set to heat water during the "low usage" periods of the electrical system to conserve energy. The system has an "override function" to heat water during "peak" usage periods that is fully explained in the guest manual which, unfortunately, this guest failed to read. The system is also explained to each arriving guest by my local representative upon arrival.
