High Country Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. It is right on the outskirts of Pagosa Springs and has amazing views, peaceful and quiet. We took a long weekend trip and this was a wonderfully relazing place to stay!

We are so glad you stayed with us, and had a relaxing time. This is a great place to kick back, and just do nothing, or to have an amazing adventure. The choice is always yours-hibernate in beautiful surroundings with a soak in the hot tubs, find a mountain hike to a hidden waterfall, go whitewater rafting, check out Chimney...

My husband and I really enjoy staying at the High Country Lodge. The rooms are clean and the staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating. When I made my reservations over the phone the person I spoke with noted that we preferred not to have our room sprayed with air freshener. She assured me they would honor that request and indeed...

Took the family on another ski trip this year and stayed in one of the cabins at High Country Lodge. We had a great time. Cabin was awesome and staff was always helpful and very friendly. It was also nice to be able to use the hot tubs after a long day on the slopes!! Brian & Denise

Thank you for choosing High Country Lodge for your ski trip. We were happy to host you. This was an awesome snow year and Wolf Creek Ski Area was at its best.

What a great way to spend spring break! Couldn't have asked for more. We caught the last day of on site snow tubing right before the major thaw. Awesome time, friendly staff and serene surroundings. We'll be back! Literally fun for the whole family.

This area of Colorado has so much to offer, no matter what the season. We're glad you got to snow tube before our hill melted down. Mother Nature just didn't cooperate this time to keep it going.

I like the mountain atmosphere. The friendly staff makes it a place I'd return to. Well operated! The discounts offered for wolf creek and hot springs are nice. I like the out of town seclusion and open feel of the grounds.
