Located 7 miles west of South Fork on Highway 149 you will find a mountain cabin nestled in the trees overlooking the Rio Grande River. Our mountain cabin provides stunning views and exceptional natural beauty that only Colorado can provide. Enjoy your coffee on the deck as you listen to the river flow just footsteps away. Fishermen will love this location!
Two downstairs bedrooms sleep 4 guests with queen beds. Upstairs master suite has queen bed and half bath. Sleep extra guests on sofa bed, or put sleeping bags in upstairs loft. Newly remodeled kitchen is fully equipped. Dining room looks out onto the deck in back that overlooks the river.
Follow the Rio Grande River along the Silver Thread Scenic Highway 17 miles to Creede and explore the town and silver mines. Or drive 30 minutes on highway 160 to Wolf Creek Ski Area which records the greatest average annual snowfall in Colorado.
Don't feel like driving? Relax on the deck or hammock with a drink and watch the fishermen in your group cast their lines. Stay out all day and watch the sun set behind the mountains.

Both myself and my wife grew up in Colorado. I am a Firefighter in Arizona. My wife works for a major hospital system in the Phoenix area. We stay very busy with our son but do enjoy to travel and vacation as time allows.
My wife grew up in the San Luis Valley and her parents purchased the property when she was younger. She has many memories with the property as their family spent nearly every weekend and holiday there. We try to come back at least 2-3 times a year to enjoy the seasons that we miss out on living in Arizona to give our son the same memories.
You are only steps from the river on this property. We love to spend time on the deck and listen to the roar of the Rio Grande. Times spent at the cabin are relaxing and rejuvenating. It is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Great owners and wonderful place to stay. Caught many nice brown trout in the river right in front of the cabin.
We surely enjoyed our stay at the River Cottage! The cabin has all the modern amenities while still having the feel of a relaxing get-a-way from the world. We spent a lot of time in the rocking chairs on the deck while simply enjoying watching the river go by. We were there during the fall and the colors were incredible, all around us. We will be back to the cottage on the river, I miss it already!
Enjoyed staying at the River Cottage once again, this was my 4th stay there on the bank of the lovely Rio Grande--we noticed the TV dish service was not working on about the 3rd day of our stay but the Lowes' notified their satellite provider immediately and all was working the very next day.
Lovely cabin in a quiet neighborhood. We go to Colorado every year, and our family wants to see as few people as possible! This spot provided as much solitude as you can get while keeping modern amenities(electric,wifi). The owners were responsive and friendly. Quiet, clean, advertised accurately, beautiful riverfront view, convenient to Creede and Del Norte, bargain priced...I have only positive things to say about this place. Highly recommend!
Our stay at River Cottage was everything we hoped for. It was located a few miles away from South Fork and easy to get to. River Cottage provided all of the comforts of home, a back deck just steps away from the Rio Grande River, a gas grill on the deck, hammocks for relaxation, and the privacy of a vacation home. We enjoyed fishing right out the back door, several day trips to lakes less than an hour's drive away, shopping in Creede, and a raft trip that went right past our cabin during our stay.
On our last full day, the water pump went out. It just took a quick call the the property managers and by the afternoon the water was back on. I highly recommend vacationing at River Cottage.
This was our second time staying here, and hopefully not our last. Perfect location and easily accessible. The kitchen is well-appointed, and the furniture is very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and just watching the river (and a moose) go by! At night the sound of the water lulled us to sleep. Thank you Steve and Sara for sharing your cottage, excellent reservation communication, and prompt refund of the security deposit. We hope to return again.
