About Pamela Smith

By day I am an accountant, but my passion is interior design and making my log cabins a wonderful experience for my will love Alpine Haven, 2014 new remodel makes it as charming and comfortable as my first log cabin....Acorn Cottage, enjoy!

Pamela Smith purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Pamela Smith chose Pagosa Springs

I found it just one street above Acorn Cottage and the previous owner was Elizabeth Taylor's son, it has a charming history and wonderful location in the trees.

What makes this cabin unique

The beauty of the forest, your own private hot tub and amazing starry nights, the forest sounds and abundant wildlife, spectacular skiing at nearby Wolf Creek ski area, soaking in the delightful hot springs all over the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a wonderful time here. The cabin was a beautiful cabin and the hot tub was very relaxing. Good housekeeper and the maintenance man was great helping get rid of some bees. Pam was wonderful and very hospitable. We look forward to coming back in the future.

Nice cabin retreat

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Alpine Haven. My family of four and my older son's family of four stayed for a three day weekend. The kitchen and dining areas were adequate. Nice quiet neighborhood just outside of Pagosa Springs.

My only concern once we arrived was the steep stairs. I was a bit afraid of my 2 y/o granddaughter falling, but everyone did ok. Beds for me were too soft, but that's a personal problem.

The walkway leading up to the house was muddy as the snow had really begun to melt. Normally this time of year it probably is snow covered.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us and for your feedback. We have had record setting heat this winter when normally everything is frozen, causing an unexpected thaw. We will definitely add extra gravel to the path this Spring in case it happens again. Regarding the soft beds, I assume that you are referring to the king beds, to which we added temperature-control temperpedic foam toppers because they are otherwise very firm. Most guests find them supportive and comfortable, sorry your experience was not optimal. Regarding the stairs, we have in place traction tape and double handrails and are glad your 2 year old had no problems. Thanks so much for the input on the pathways and beds and we hope you stay with us again!

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Pam is a great, responsive host, and the cabin is very adorable. They have lots of games and movies which kept us entertained when we weren't skiing. It's on the way up to the ski mountain so it's really convenient for going to Wolf Creek. Overall great experience.

Ski trip to Pagosa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Perfect space for our family of 4 and an adult friend. Very well stocked kitchen! Owner was very responsive when we called about the gas fireplace not working and had someone there to fix it within the hour. Will definitely stay here again.

Family Get-away

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice cabin with a rustic feel. Plenty of beds for the 4 adults and 3 teen/pre teen kids. Nice location in a quiet mountain neighborhood. Everything worked well, our only complaint was the cleaning crew forgot to empty the coffee maker filter (for a while, it had mold on the grounds) and some of the towels and pillow cases hadn't been used in a while or were washed without soap so they had kind of a mildew smell. All the problems were easily fixed upon arrival and had no impact on us having a great time. The owner was immediately responsive to our text messages and called back within minutes. We would recommend this location for anyone looking to get away from the city and relax in the mountains. Pagosa Springs is a nice little town with good food and hot springs. Hiking is near by on Wolf Creek Pass.

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this cabin with our family. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Our only complaint was that we could never get Netflix to cooperate. Pam is very accommodating and very easy to work with. I would definitely rent from her again!
