The living area is spacious and cozy with 22ft ceilings, wood burning stove with ample supplies of wood and starter materials. The sofa and oversided chair make into a queen and twin size bed for extra guests.

The kitchen is well stocked with anything you could possibly need including a dishwasher, crock pot, bread machine, waffle maker, blender, mixer, coffee maker, toaster and lots of serving pieces. There is seating for 8 (4 at dining table, 4 at bar) with an additional folding table and 4 chairs.

The master bedroom is upstairs and has marvelous views. It has a king size bed with a featherbed, down comforter and feather pillows. The attached bath has separate shower and tub and double sinks in a granite top.

The loft bedroom has a queen size Murphy bed with a featherbed, down comfortor and feather pillows, loveseat and coffee table.

The 3rd bedroom has a full size bed with a featherbed, down comfortor, and feather pillows. It also has a single trundle bed underneath. The downstairs bath has a shower tub combo and sink in a Duncan Phife buffet with a granite top.

The views from the 3 sided deck are extraordinary. You can relax and enjoy the great outdoors on the 2 tables, 6 chairs, or sofa and loveseat. We are sure you will enjoy your stay in our inviting retreat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been going to South Fork for years and this "home", away from home, is the best we have ever had. There were four of us, seniors, and the men fished and played golf, we girls sat on this lovely front porch with great views of the river and mountains, and just enjoyed the comfort of this lovely home. The owners have made every accomodation one could want. The beds were comfortable and the home was well equiped. In fact, we felt as if the owners were our hosts and had just gone to town and would soon return. Thank you Jim and Monica, for sharing your dream log home....

We visited South Fork, CO for Spring Break with a family of 5 for a ski trip to Wolf Creek. This Cabin was perfect for us! Very homey, all the amenities you could ask for and we really appreciated having the pantry stocked! That made cooking at home so much easier! When we weren't skiing, we watched a couple of movies that were provided and just enjoyed hanging out with a beautiful view. Would highly recommend this cabin for your stay in South Fork!

Our stay at your home was fabulous. There was plenty of room for all five of us, kitchen was well stocked. The fireplace was an extra bonus. We would definitely book again. Monica was quick to respond to my text message and easy to deal with. Thanks and we had a great time.

Our family has been vacationing in the South Fork area for the last 30 years. For the past 10 years we have been staying in cabins instead of RV. The Beaver Mountain Property (Bozeta) has been the best cabin that we have rented---HANDS DOWN!!!! It was very conveniently located just outside of Southfork and very accessible for all of our day trips to Pagosa Springs, Creede, and Lake City. We all love to fish so the cabin was also close to Tucker Ponds, Big Meadows, and river fishing. However, this was our first trip to South Fork in August and the fishing was NOT as good as previous years when we went in June and July. The cabin was very accommodating and very well maintained. I could only dream of a home this gorgeous!!! It was beautifully decorated in fishing and bear decor, comfortable, and most importantly very clean. We felt like we were at HOME, but in the awesome, majestic mountains of Colorado. We definitely will consider this property for rental for future trips to South Fork, Colorado. Thank you Jim and Monica for sharing your awesome cabin with our family. Can't wait till we can come back and we will definitely be sharing your amazing cabin with all our friends and family. Sincerely, Michael and Cindy Pope, Crowell, Texas

The Pemberton's cabin in South Fork, CO.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was as advertised with all the necessary items anyone could possibly need. It was close to South Fork and the ATV trails which we made the trip for. Very nice and well maintained and almost like being at home. Beds were very comfortable, bath rooms large and well supplied with shampoo, soap, etc. We would recommend your cabin as a go to place to stay close to South Fork.

The cabin is very nice. The ice maker didn't work, but we didn't know until we used up all the ice someone had bought and put in. Also, it is near the river, but you can't get to it.

Owner's Response: We have about 400' of the South Fork river on our property. You can get to the river there is an embankment that is not recommended for the elderly. We fish it regularly. There is a picture of our property line, you can see the embankment on it. Its a great honey hole!
