Guestbook comments from the manager

The gurgling river souls and the bugeling Elk sang us to sleep each night. We arrived to fall like landscape and awoke to a winter wonderland. Again, Wolf Creek Pass did not dissapoint and she shared her stashes of powder to boarders and skiers alike. We shall return triumphantly! Alsa, I shant forget the bounty bestowed upon us Thanksgiving

Absolutely Awesome Stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

Right off the bat, I will say that we plan on staying at the Elk River House again! It's a beautiful cabin that was very spacious and clean for our family. Pictures DO NOT do it justice AND they are nice pictures!! We enjoyed the large kitchen which was full of everything we needed including a crock pot. Previous posts complained of dull knives so I brought my own, but never used them because plenty of sharp knives were available. The outdoor deck area was especially awesome with hot tub, plenty of seating for all of us and a fire pit which we used during the beautiful mornings and evenings with plenty of firewood avaiable. Fishing off the walk out deck was so much fun for the kids! We all enjoyed great night's sleep on comfortable beds. The detached garage was so HUGE we fit 4 vehicles inside. Laundry room was spacious with nice washer and dryer. We can't stress enough about this cabin! Love love loved it!!!

Our own recommendations to better our stay would be for written directions left at cabin for direct tv, heating systems (different systems) etc. because we had to bother manager and didn't want to (Manager responded promptly when we called or texted). Microwave was noisy and didn't heat food or drinks like it should. Electric can opener should be replaced or hand held opener even better. Glass shower enclosure in Hollywood bathroom didn't stay on track. Cob webs were still pretty bad that we had read in previous posts. By no means did these things interfere with our stay! We absolutely loved it and will return as soon as we can!

Spacious and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed there....for a reason. The proximity to the highway is deceiving, but once inside or on the back deck, the normal world disappears. We love the space and the access to the deck. The garage is perfect to store extra items, i.e. golf clubs, so the house doesn't get cluttered. The kitchen is well stocked so we have never had to bring any items from home to use. Beds are comfortable and plentiful and the bathrooms are plenty big.

My concerns/suggestions:

1. It would be great if there was a screen door on the back deck so you could get the breeze and river sound without the flies.

2. The first two times we were there, laundry supplies were available. This time, we didn't bring any from home and we had to purchase some.

3. The Jack/Jill bathroom shower door broke and did not get fixed while we were there.

4. We had to replace five lightbulbs that were out on our first day.

5. We couldn't find any instructions on how to use the hot tub. Once we got it running, it tripped the breaker so we didn't use it again, not wanting to damage it.

With those five "cons", I would recommend this place wholeheartedly. In fact, we have already reserved it for next year!

Beautiful location and home

  • 4 of 5

House was very nice! Beds are comfy! Was a bit cobwebby outside and on higher fixtures in home but besides that. Cleanliness was a 4 1/2 out of 5. The jets in the tub didn't work and the bathroom that has the tub/ shower the shower head didn't work. Baths are good though! Everyone in the neighboring houses were nice. We had an amazing time and would definitely return. I enjoyed this area more then Denver!! It's a perfect spot to get away and enjoy the mountains!!

The Elk River House far exceeded our expectations. The property is absolutely beautiful, it took my breath away when I walked out on to the deck. We stayed 4 nights and it wasn't long enough. We had 13 adults and one child, there were comfortable beds for everyone, plenty of pillows and blankets! The rooms are big and roomy, we never felt crowded at all. The kitchen is very well stocked, no shortage of pots and pans or dishes. There was even a cheese grater (which we forgot so that was a huge plus) and a corkscrew and can opener. Little things that you forget to bring along. I was also pleased to find a good selection of common spices in the kitchen available for us to use.

We spent a great deal of time outside on the beautiful deck, and at night enjoyed the fire pit and the board games inside the house. There is a beautiful neighborhood right across the river that we walked through every morning. Amazing views! It's an easy drive up to Pagosa Springs for a day trip or to Creede for some great sightseeing. My kids went tubing down the river and loved it. There is no shortage of things to do in and around South Fork. The Mexican restaurant across the street (short 5 min walk) was good and happy to accommodate a large group for dinner. The Rainbow grocery store is about a mile down the road and surprisingly big, they had a good selection of groceries.

The fishing was great, and you can fish right off the deck, which was a lot of fun. The hot tub was great, and there is plenty of seating on the deck. There is a grill but we did not use it.

The owners were very helpful and quick to respond with any questions we had about the property.

You won't regret a stay at this property. We will definitely be back.
