San Juan River Village Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Get your cowboy (or cowgirl) on in this charming two story three bedroom vintage log cabin in the San Juan Mountains with its own private hot tub on a covered deck and spectacular tree top mountain views. The starry nights, wagon wheel chandelier, charming western decor and surrounding forest will make you completely forget the big city! Close to skiing and town, yet located in the most desirable vacation area between Wolf Creek Ski Area and Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Newly remodeled in September 2014, we enhanced the vintage vibe with new windows, doors, mattresses, linens, two flat screen TVs with streaming Free Netflix, YouTube, Pandora and more, movie library, (note we do not have regular TV Channels or Satellite TV), high speed internet, furniture, modern utilities and more, while keeping most of the original character including its rustic barn-like pine floors. Fishing is only minutes away in the nearby San Juan River, Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and, hiking only 1-20 minutes away with direct access to national forest. Horseback rides in Spring, Summer and Fall only a mile away. If you must leave this idyllic cabin, town is only 10 minutes.

3 bedrooms: 2 Kings, 2 Twins, 1 Full and 1 Queen Sleeper Sofa, Deck and Balcony. Flat Screen TV's with Free NetFlix, Free HIgh Speed Wifi Internet, BlueRay/DVD Players, Movie Library.

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.

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!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us and the input on Netflix. We checked it out and it seems to be running great now and all recent guests report no problems.

Such a cozy cabin - all of the comforts of home with a charming western feel! Pamela did a terrific job pulling together the decor (loved the bit of history about Liz Taylor!) It was a perfect amount of space for our 2 couples and one extra single adult. We cooked all meals in - and there was more than enough utensils and cookware. Very easy trip to the ski area for 3 great days of skiing! Highly recommend this property!

First-time VRBO user and Colorado tourist - Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Alpine Haven and no one wanted to leave! Great location - private, peaceful, wooded neighborhood made us feel secluded, yet located only a few minutes to town, the hot springs and endless fishing holes (if you wanna fish, be sure and hit Echo Lake). Loved The Springs. We have a 9yo and were very pleased at how "kid-friendly" they were (there's also an "18+ only" area...complete with gas-log fire pits and really comfy lounge chairs). We loved that the town had a laid-back vibe and was NOT overrun with tourists (like ourselves lol).

Also drove up Wolf Creek Pass (hubby's a closet C.W. McCall fan) to the Continental Divide...about 20 minutes away. If you head up there, be sure and stop in South Fork at The Old Firehouse Grill. THE BEST food!

Neighbors were friendly and helpful, too (nice older gentleman stopped and chatted with us...gave us the down-low on good fishing spots and area wildlife). Everything was very clean and nicely decorated....and the two decks were perfect for relaxing. Pam was extra quick to respond to our questions... And the house was well-stocked with everything you need (tons of towels, sheets, dishes, even cooking spices, tea and coffee). And, very quick return of our deposit. I have no complaints and would book there again in a heartbeat. Husband's been looking at Pagosa real estate - and dreaming of retirement - since we got home. All around, just perfect! Thanks so much!

Great Cabin near Wolf Creek Ski Area!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. It was super clean and really attractive furnishings. The view felt like we were in the tree tops. The beds and linens were awesome, and the hot tub was great at the end of the day. Its really close to town only 10 minutes, but feels like you are out in the remote mountains. We will definitely be back and the owner was very nice and informative during our stay.
