About Karen Markum

Our family has vacationed in South Fork for the last 10 years! We have so many great memories that we would love to share with you. Come and visit with YOUR family and make memories of your own. We have a list available of the things we love to do while visiting and would love to share that with you and see what new adventures await you.

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.

Fly fishing in the area is simply fantastic....catch your dinner and then grill it on the patio!! Hiking trails are all around. Explore the backcountry by foot or rent an ATV and spend the day in the mountains surrounded by the beautiful mountains. Pagosa Springs is just over the pass and has hot springs, rafting and several restaurants. Creede is only a 30 minute drive and has a live theatre, historic mine, shopping and abundant outdoor activities to experience. Lake City is a little bit farther but is an absolutely beautiful drive with ATV and Jeep rentals and trails accessible directly from town. Stop in Cottonwood Cove for some ice cream or some horseback riding. So many choices and all so close to the cabin!! Get outside for a day of fun on the slopes at Wolf Creek Ski Area and be wowed by the view!!!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and this quiet little cabin. I will definitely plan to stay again. It does get hot but there are plenty of fans and it cools off amazingly during the night.

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect week, perfect weather! We enjoyed staying at the cabin. It's got all the basics with beautiful views. Conveniently located near South Fork, Del Norte with easy access to Creede and Wolf Creek. The cabin was clean and tidy with ample stocks of pantry items, cooking utensils, dishes, linens, etc. We hiked up to Treasure Falls, enjoyed the late spring snow at Wolf Creek, went to Taste of Creede, biked in Alamosa along the river, took the D-Loop single track around the hill in Del Norte, shopped with our friends at both Kristi Mountain Sports locations in Alamosa and Del Norte, ate at Three Barrel Brewery in Del Norte (wood-fired pizza, calzones) drove over for an afternoon in Pagosa Springs, too many other fun things, never turned the tv on and wondered why we ever left the San Luis Valley to be in Texas. Loved it!!! Thank you, Karen!!!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this cabin during a spring break ski trip! We had never used VRBO and had never been to Wolf Creek Ski Area. Both were amazing:) The cabin was exactly as it was described...but better. A beautiful space for my family to make memories. I woke every morning to have coffee and watch the sunrise over the mountains...absolutely breath taking. We had deer visit us daily while we were there...which was a treat for my kids. The kitchen was completely stocked, the furnishings were comfortable, the porch was amazing, and the view from every window in the place was spectacular! Thank you for sharing your home with us...we will definitely be back!

Southern Colorado Beauty

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cabin up in the mountains in South Fork. There are numerous things to see within 30min to 1 hour drive, such as waterfalls, old mines, hot springs, and beautiful mountainous scenery all around. We had a great time and even had time to relax at the cabin!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin, it was in a great location had amazing views and is very easy to find, also it was very clean and very well kept. Karen was very responsive when we had questions and very friendly! Everything we needed to know about the cabin was made available on the home away app. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay in or near the South Fork area. We visited all the surround towns and had a great time, we will definitely keep Karen's cabin in mind for our next trip back this way!
