South Fork Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Private & Secluded Cabins on the banks of the Rio Grande River

We have made available beautifully handcrafted custom log cabins on the banks of the Rio Grande River, each cabin offers privacy and seclusion, located 25 miles from Wolf Creek Ski area and 4 miles from the Rio Grande Golf Club.

Our home is a Norwegian style dovetail log home with chinking in between the logs, we cut all the dovetail corners on site and set every log ourselves. It has 3 nicely decorated bedrooms all with queen beds and there is also a sofa sleeper with feather-bed, 8 people can sleep comfortably in beds. Each bedroom has its own TV with cable, HBO and DVD/VCR, we also have a DVD library of about 100 movies. One of the three bathrooms is also equipped with a washer and dryer. The kitchen might be considered more of an efficiency one with a smaller 4 top electric stove/oven, full size refrigerator and no dishwasher but is well appointed with all the accessories and utensils you might need.

Outside you will find a beautiful sail-shade covered (summer) picnic area along the banks of the river. The picnic area is equipped for cooking on a gas grill or in the fire pit area on the custom made plow disc wok. Really want to relax, you can take a dip in the hot tub surrounded by beautiful flower gardens, and at night enjoy the endless stars..

We have made available for our guests 3 inflatable kayaks,a self bailing raft and 4 floating inner-tubes to use and enjoy during your visit here. You would easily pay over $400 per day for renting these items that are included for free with your stay with us, we are also available to help with vehicle shuttles and and possibly drop offs or pick ups from several different launch areas along the Rio Grande River.

The rental price is based on the the number of rooms you are renting and the season of the year you are here. We do our best to keep our VRBO calendar up to date (we are also listed on several other sites), for the most up to date calendar please call 719-873-5280 or email riverside_meadows@live.com We will also be happy to send you a link to our website with a more detailed description of our property.

Riverside Meadows was built entirely by the Owners Fritz and Paula Allen along with their daughter Sadi and we would like to welcome you to out home. This is our primary residence and we will most likely be here for your stay, your private cabin will allow you as much privacy as you like and we will be available to help with any questions and / or problems that inevitably arise.

Fritz and Paula Allen purchased this cabin in 2006

We are located on the banks of the Rio Grande River in a very private and secluded setting on 8 acres. Relax and enjoy the sounds of the river from your cabin, hammock or cooking out right next to the river. You can enjoy fishing from our property or take a float on some of the 17 miles of 'Gold Medal' waters from South Fork to Del Norte. Inflatable fishing raft and inflatable kayaks are available for our guests and if available we are happy to provide a shuttle and possibly act as a tour guide if you are looking for some social interaction.

We have made available for our guests 3 inflatable kayaks and a self bailing raft to use and enjoy while here. We recently add 4 high quality inner-tubes for floating as well. You would easily pay $500 per day for renting these items that are included for free, we are also available to help with vehicle shuttles.

LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
So here I am on VRBO trying to book for this summer's vacation and all I can think about is going back to Fritz and Paula's place. We left our hearts here last summer! Our two boys had a blast here fishing, kayaking, playing washers with Sadi... We loved the area and we loved Fritz & Paula. It was such a fabulous experience it has spoiled me for considering other rentals in other states because I can't imagine it will be as much fun as we had there. Book it. You won't be sorry; except when you have to leave. We may be headed to Wisconsin this year, but I have no doubt we'll be back to Riverside Meadows soon.

AWESOME 4 DAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I (and two labs) just spent 3 nights, 4 days at Riverside Meadows and loved the property, the setting and the hosts. Being right on the river, surronded by beautiful scenery can't be beat. I'm almost 6ft 2" tall and had no issues in the studio apartment. We would book again! Oh yea- comfy beds and pillows, too.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four was blessed to have found Riverside Meadows for a night during our recent tour of the SW. Fritz and Paula have truly created a "slice of heaven" in southern Colorado. The accommodations were high quality, comfortable and extremely clean. Grilling dinner over the riverside fire pit under the stars is a special memory. Thanks, Fritz, for sharing your beautiful home site with us.

IDEAL FOR FAMILY SKI VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I took my two kids and my parents for a ski trip; Riverside Meadows was the perfect place to call "home" during our vacation. The cabins are modern and very clean -- like new. We will return for a summer vacation and enjoy the Rio Grande river more.

EXCELLENT SKI TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Family ski trip turned into a great adventure with our stay at Riverside Meadows. Arrived with snow falling and were greeted by Fritz and Paula. Able to unload and go to town for ski rental equipment. My wife and I stayed in the Master Cabin, while our three teenagers and dog, Dash, stayed in the Studio Cabin. We went skiing for three days and mostly slept and ate dinner at the cabins. We extended our stay one additional day to recuperate and take in the beauty of the property. The cabins were perfect and cozy with plenty of room. Fritz and Paula were available for any issues that may arise.

Dash made a new friend during our stay. Kenai, owner's dog, and Dash played in the snow until Dash was worn out. Thank you Paula for taking Dash along with you on your daily adventures of skiing on the property and to the wildlife management area. Dash was worn out by the time we arrived from the ski area.

I am more of a fisherman than a skier, so I only tried to imagine what the premises and river would look like in the summer time. The river appeared to be normally 50 yards wide, but was mostly covered with ice and snow and only a stream about 15 feet wide was trickling through the center of the ice. Our last night we had an outdoor fire by the river and the stars in the night sky were unbelievable.

Thanks again for your hospitality and hope to return.
