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, hiking the woods and dining on freshly caught rainbow trout.
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.
The cabin was great for our quick spring break trip. It was a short drive to everything we needed - grocery store, ski rental shop, and Wolf Creek ski area. It had everything we needed to cook dinner each night. We would stay here again.
We really enjoyed our stay. Owner was very accessible for questions. Accommodations were clean and well kept. We will definitely return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house provided us with everything we needed. The wood stove was great on very cold evenings. The WiFi worked well and the house was equiped with everything we needed. We would definitely return!
We loved our time in South Fork! My husband and I stayed there with our 7year old and 8year old. Our cabin was wonderful and the owners were most accommodating with information and timely responses leading up to to trip. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. We will definitely be back!
My husband and I with 2 children stayed at the cabin for 7 days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We made day trips outside of South Fork after hiking several trails there. We loved staying in the cozy, well equipped cabin with lovely western decor. Our needs had been anticipated and the immaculate home readied in advance of our visit. We loved being able to cook instead of eat out though enjoyed the Whistle Pig barbecue, Cottonwood Cove steaks and Rainbow grocery for everything else. The visitor's center at South Fork was fantastic. We drove to Pagosa Springs, Gunnison and Durango for attractions including hot springs and river floating, boat ride on the Gunnison river from Morrow's point and the Durango to Siverton train ride with informative bus ride back. We prayed the Stations of the Cross at the shrine in San Luis and sandboarded at Great Sand Dunes! We plan to return to South Fork and stay at the cabin again as soon as possible and will rent a jeep to enjoy more of the South Fork trails including Wheeler Geologic site and Summitville. We've never enjoyed a vacation more in large part due to fantastic accommodations and host. Thanks very much!
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.
