Karen Markum purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Karen Markum chose South Fork

South Fork is located in the perfect spot for Skiing, Snowmobiling, Fly Fishing, World Class Golfing at the Rio Grande Club, Hot Springs, Live Theatre, etc. You can go to Pagosa Springs for the day, experience the live theatre, museums and river rafting in Creede which is only 20 minutes away.

What makes this cabin unique

Watch the sunrise from the front porch while sipping on your fresh cup of coffee. Eat your breakfast outside while listening to hummingbirds and watching for deer in the front yard.

Comfortable and quiet cabin with pretty views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Markum cabin! It had many amenities (the washer and dryer is a nice bonus), and it was a comfortable and quiet place to stay. The front porch was my favorite spot, where I watched sunrises, sunsets and lots of birds. The night sky is STUNNING -- it's a star-gazers delight!

Family Summer Vacation

We have stayed in many rental cabins for vacations and I must say, this was my favorite! It was supplied with everything needed for a great family vacation! Loved watching our resident rabbits, chipmunks and hummingbirds! Would definitely recommend and hope to be back soon!

Southfork base camp cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! Such a great location for so many things. Only a few miles from Wolf creek pass, Creede and lake city are just a short drive as well. The cabin is VERY well stocked, had everything we needed and much more! Very comfy cabin with great heat for those cold nights. The beds were awesome! We sleep on a tempurpedic at home and usually have a hard time sleeping away from home, but these beds were great.

Very quiet and well furnished. We enjoyed it very much although you have to drive to any services like food, grocery, golf, fishing etc....

Owner's Response: We agree! That's what makes coming to Colorado such a treat! We are so close to the amenities of the town but really feels a world away! The grocery store is (the Rainbow) only 21/2 miles away and golfing which is rated one of the top ten courses in the country is slightly closer! Thrilled you got to experience Colorado and the beauty of the mountains! Access to the river is even closer since you cross the river on the way to the cabin! Thanks so much for visiting! We hope to see you again next year!

Could not have been more pleased!

  • 5 of 5

Could have stayed all day long on the porch--soooo relaxing and comfortable--with a great view! Cabin was clean and inviting. It was actually more than we had hoped for. The owners provided excellent communication. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to others!
