"We spent 2 wonderful weeks here in Aug/Sept 2014. First, Lisa was extremely helpful and accommodating prior to our trip, answering all of our questions quickly and providing plenty of recommendations for restaurants, activities and shopping. Our actual trip surpassed all of our expectations - the home was lovely, spacious and well equipped, but the setting is what really made our stay memorable. The views from the cabin are breathtaking and walks down the quiet country road revealed other equally spectacular scenery. With the way the cabin and its deck are situated, we were able to see both sunrises and sunsets over the Continental Divide and they were absolutely beautiful! And after sunset, stargazing from the deck was amazing, with no light pollution whatsoever to spoil the beauty of the night sky. Daily, the deer came within feet of the cabin deck and barely an hour went by that we didn't see some kind of wildlife (deer, elk, turkey, chipmunks, birds, coyotes and more) on the cabin property, in the meadow across the street, or on our walks and car rides. In addition to the remarkable setting of the cabin, the whole Pagosa Springs area has plenty to offer in the way of hiking/biking trails, scenic drives, and other outdoor activities. The cabin is a little remote (10 miles off the highway), but the road is well maintained and (in the summer) we didn't have any problems driving it in our Honda Accord. In fact, we really enjoyed the country road as we always saw deer and/or elk every time we left and returned to the cabin. This cabin was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the Upper Blanco Basin as well as to provide easy access to the numerous activities Pagosa Springs has to offer when we were feeling energetic.
I highly recommend this property for the cabin itself, the peaceful setting and the remarkable views, the wildlife viewing, the abundance of activities available within a short drive, and the excellent customer service provided by the property manager."
