Delight in Your South Fork Vacation Home

South Fork is situated ideally in the heart of south central Colorado in an off-the-beaten-path location, making it the perfect getaway spot for those who want to escape from the cares of daily life. You can truly slow down in style when you choose to stay in a lovely South Fork vacation rental home. Whether you choose to stay in a cabin-style rental home or another style of home, you will love the fact that your home has all of the comforts that you want on your vacation. This may include spacious bedrooms, large living areas, great mountain views, a full kitchen, storage space for your skis and much more.

Outdoor Recreation

Many people who escape to south-central Colorado for a fun-filled vacation have dreams of kicking back and enjoying down time, but you will also want to enjoy ample time outdoors on mountain adventures. There is much to explore throughout the area, and you may find yourself skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling in the winter months. The summer months are ideal for white water rafting, kayaking, fishing, hiking, picnicking and much more. You will love all there is to see and do when you head to this distinctive and charming area of Colorado on your vacation.

Attractions

While you may have big plans to spend a large portion outdoors getting back in touch with nature on your Colorado vacation, there will be times when you are looking for something different to do with your time. You will be pleased to learn that there is much to enjoy in South Fork or Buena Vista and surrounding communities despite the area's relatively sparsely populated characteristics. In fact, you can explore attractions such as the Phipps La Garita Ranch, the South Fork Visitor Center, the Rocky Mountain Ski and Raft Center, the Rio Grande Club golf course and the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad.

Dining

If you are like many others who visit South Fork, you may enjoy preparing leisurely meals in the kitchen in your vacation home from time to time, but you also want to give yourself a break and head to one of the many area restaurants from time to time. These restaurants include Feelin' Good Coffee House, the Old Firehouse, the Rockaway Steak House, Ramon's Mexican Restaurant, South Form Malt Shoppe, Spruce Lodge and several others.

Weather

South Fork has a moderate elevation above sea level, but it also is located at the base of several mountain peaks. As you travel through the area, your elevation can change dramatically, and this will have a major impact on the temperature and weather conditions that you are exposed to. Therefore, regardless of the season, it is important to dress in layers. You can expect the area to have long, cold winters with considerable snowfall during the winter, spring and fall months. Summers are short and mild, and average highs are in the 60s and 70s.

How to Get There

This town is tucked away in the mountains away from other communities in south central Colorado, providing the remote feel that many vacationers love. Getting to the area will take some time, but it is well worthwhile. You can travel into Denver via bus, air or your own car. In a rental car or your own car, travel south along Interstate 25 until you reach Route 160. On Route 160, travel west until you reach South Fork. This is a long drive, but it is a scenic and enjoyable way to start your vacation.

The views are what really sells the stay. Having coffee with the morning sun, and doing a puzzle by the evening sunset is a perfect way to bookend the day. The pullout couch was not the most comfortable, but the kids were able to it cushioned with some extra blankets and they slept well. We went to Mesa Verde for the day, and it was amazing, not sure what to expect, but it was worth it. Overall, a lovely, relaxing way to spend a couple of days to round out our holiday week.

Secluded but short drive to Cortez. We had been trying to stay in this cabin for two years and finally made it. It was worth the effort. The home is beautiful and very well furnished. We will definitely be back.
