I really appreciate the staff here. They were friendly and welcoming, offering suggestions for dining and other activities. While this place is near the highway, it is set back far enough the road noise does not seem too intrusive. Our room was clean and the beds comfortable. The office and breakfast room were decorated in a log cabin western motive,... More

This was our third time staying and our family of 6 had another great time. We opted for the bunk house to take advantage of the second bathroom and larger kitchen. The cabin was clean, everything worked, and provided the respite we were all looking forward to on our trip. We will be back for certain!

This place is so nice, and the staff are nice also. Rustic charm, decent price, clean rooms. Breakfast was okay, but filling. This was a good choice, I felt, for us to make. It is five minutes from Pagosa Springs.

My sisters and I stayed in a studio cabin Sunday May 17, 2015. It was very nice. The grounds were beautiful, very peaceful and the breakfast was good. The staff was great. We will be going back soon. Located about 2 miles from town and was very easy to find.
