                            We were a group of 4 adults and 5 kids. We found the property to be as advertised. The river (creek) was literally feet from the back porch. The children enjoyed wading through the water and jumping from rock to rock. We had several chipmunks who would visit us all day long. Geese were abundant on the adjoining property. My children really enjoyed fishing at the private lake (and yes they did catch trout, the biggest was 14"). The paddle boats were a nice feature as well. The actual cabin was furnished well and had plenty of blankets, linens and towels for us all. We would rate our stay as excellent and would definetely book here in the future. The only thing I wished the property had was a larger back porch. I personally would like to see the back deck enlarged so that a table and chairs could be placed. There really is no where to sit because the hot tub takes up the porch. Would not keep me from coming back though.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with young children, tourists without a car.

                            Eldora was beautiful. We enjoyed every moment there. We stayed 1 week and it was not enough. The property managers were wonderful people who took wonderful care of us from getting us ski lift tickets to letting us have an egg we were short in preparing dinner! They also went above and beyond when my son left his cell phone. They located it and mailed it to us very quickly. I cannot say enough good things about our stay here.

                            Our cabin porch was literally 50 feet from the gurgling river. Had coffee outside on the deck every morning. So peaceful, it was like we were the only ones in the cabin complex. Bart, the owner, came around at least twice while we were there to make sure everything was as we wanted it. He switched out a refrigerator that was having some issues. The whole experience was so delightful. Another success through VRBO! (This is our third cabin rental and all have been great!)

                            This cabin was outstanding! It had everything we needed, and all the extras we wanted. Very clean and pleasantly decorated. Never used it, but loved the crock pot as an option. You can't beat Wolf Creek skiing. To top it off, we finished the days with cozy fires and long soaks in the hot tub! Imagine this...relaxing in the hot tub after a full day skiing and steak/lobster dinner (grilled on the porch by my hubsband); huge moon shining on the snow covered canyon and river; and beautiful starlight sky finished off with a shooting star! Doesn't get any better. Thanks for all your help Bart.

                            Great location with awesome views and epic ski conditions. Eldora was everything Bart said it would be! The cabin was new and included all the amenities we needed for a wonderful getaway. The wood stove kept us warm and cozy, the flat screen HD TV and wifi kept us in touch, and the hot tub just a few feet from the river helped sooth sore legs. Our two dogs were also welcome and had a great time plowing through all the fresh snow.

                            The house and location were everything and more than we expected. Fully equipped with everything you need and obviously no expense spared to make sure guests felt at home. The rooms were spacious and we particularly loved the large master bathroom with fluffy towels! Much of our time was spent on the perfectly positioned deck, either watching the river flow or relaxing and marveling at the wonderful scenery surrounding us. Bart was extremely helpful and gave good advice on places to visit and how to catch a trout in the lake! We would highly recommend staying in this comfortable, spacious and well positioned house and look forward to returning there soon.

                            This truly was an amazing place to stay! The house is spacious and has a beautiful kitchen with an excellent view of the Rio Grande and the glacier canyon within which it sits. The walls of the canyon shoot up from ground and extend to amazing heights providing stunning rock outcropping views with pine forests. The house has 3 huge bedrooms that would easily accommodate 9 people as the listing says. The bathrooms are spacious and have a classy appearance. Everything you need, from towels to utensils, is already in the house! The trout fishing here is amazing! The Rio Grande is literally 15 feed from the front porch. We caught multiple trout out out the river. The pond on the property has many trophy trout that we caught as well. Our best fishing of the week came at this house's waters! The front porch has a nice grill and an excellent hot tub that provides an relaxing end to many adventurous days in beautiful South Fork, Colorado. We will be back here for sure!
