5 BEDROOM RIVERFRONT CABIN - MINUTES FROM WOLF CREEK SKI AREA

South Fork House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Private deck overlooks the South Fork of the Rio Grande. Take a short trail to scenic Million Reservior. Surrounded by national forest and hundreds of miles of trails for ATVs, mountain bikes, and backpacking. Gold Medal fishing in the area. Secluded atmosphere, yet just 2 miles from shopping. With new carpeting and wood floors, this cabin is clean, well equipped, with lots of room to spread out in. Log beds, and new furniture complement the mountain view!

Leave the crowds and high prices of the Summit area behind and ski Wolf Creek (20 minutes), the most snow in Colorado and still the cheapest lift tickets. Cabin is located 2 miles up Beaver Creek Road off Highway 160 at South Fork and only 1/4 mile from paved road...the road is plowed to the front door!

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is the 3rd visit and it's better then ever. Best location in the area and very private with easy access, even in the winter. The owner has made a number of upgrades recently. New glass top range, microwave, TV, and furniture. We'll be back soon.

Dan Schmedeman (owner) has designed and built dozens of log homes through out the Colorado Rockies. There is no place in Colorado more scenic then South Fork, and our cabin is setting in the middle of one of the nicest location in the area. After a few days at the cabin, you will not want to go home.

My favorite time is the early fall when i can get up early, get my cup of coffee and walk down to the river or Million Resevoir for some trout fishing.

Great Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5
This is a great cabin with all amenities. We stayed for 4 nights and didn't have one complaint. The kitchen-dining area is really open and big enough to accommodate several people. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much.

Great price/location but needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5
Great price & location. House & property both need some work. Screen doors still have duct tape on them, porch has several rotten boards, steps down to the river need some serious work, carpet & rugs were dirty, towels smelled sour upon arrival, the dryer took several cycles to dry your clothes (hose was kinked & full of debris - it eventually disconnected itself from the dryer and became useless). Dead bugs in the window seals & vacuum wouldn't work. Beware, field mice nested under both vehicle hoods eating insulation/wires. We originally rented this house for the summer but canceled our trip because of the South Fork fires & evacuations. We tried to get a refund but the owner was very rude & difficult to work with. Later we planned another trip to the area and decided to stay at the house since it was already paid for (it was more house than we needed this time) but we didn't think we would ever see a refund. The owner did refund the seasonal difference of rates. After dealing with the owner, I honestly wouldn't have been surprised by anything at the house. Overall it was a good stay but I wouldn't risk staying here again.

Owner's Response: We would like to thank all of quests who were impacted by the fire this summer and worked with us to reschedule their trips. Most were very understanding given the circumstances. We have addressed most of the maintance issues, replaced the dryer, and i did talk to some of the local field mice.

Great location and size!

  • 4 of 5
The location was excellent for skiing at Wolf Creek. Five families stayed in this 5 bedroom cabin. The size was great! The price was amazing, also! The only complaint I have is that the showers and tubs had buildup of soap scum. I looked for bathroom cleaner and a brush to just clean it myself, but was unable to find any. I suspect they were in the closet that was locked. Due to the great price and the excellence of everything else, I would definitely come back (but with bathroom cleaner and a brush in hand. LOL). I would definitely recommend staying at this cabin!!

okay, but not what was expected...

  • 3 of 5
We were frankly a little disappointed upon arrival. While the surroundings are beautiful, the cabin itself was not what we had expected per the information given. The water pressure was terrible and my husband had to help clean out the filter to increase it. The river is right behind the cabin as presented, but the steep steps leading down to it were VERY unsafe; no railing and broken boards made it dangerous for kids and older people. There were also several weak boards on the porch and deck which we marked with various things so we did not step on them. The cabin is nice enough, but it was not very clean... the bathroom rugs in all bathrooms were dirty ( we layed towels down because we didnt want to step on them after bathing) and the towels, wash cloths, and dish rags were very old and worn. Both screen doors were in disrepair; what repair had been done was with duct tape. The screen door to the deck has such a large hole that a squirrel actually came inside the cabin one morning~~fun for kids, but not what we paid for. Also, we realize that the following may be weather related, OR because of the fact that the neighborhood dumpster is right by the cabin, but there was trash everywhere around the cabin, under the deck and down the trail to the river. We cleaned up quite a bit, but there was truly too much for us to take the time to clean up properly. Overall, we had a great time. Would I rent this cabin again? Probably not.
