About the property

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.

About Steve and Sara Lowe

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.

Why Steve and Sara Lowe chose South Fork

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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 location comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The South Fork area is beautiful. This house is set for a great view out of main area, living, dining space of the Rio Grande river and the mountain beyond. Looking out the window you see Aspen, Spruce, pines and wild roses, all on the property. Once we got there we didn't leave much, a short drive to Creede, the rest of the time we were happy just to be at the cabin.

Down by the river there are three spots where you could put a folding chair, and sit by the river. We took full advantage of those spots, very nice. There some large rocks in the river that make great stepping stones, it felt great to stand well into the Rio Grande and take in the beauty that is all around you.

Great rustic cabin with easy access, quiet, beautiful views & fishing out the back door

  • 4 of 5

Loved our time at the cabin! Has a well furnished kitchen to do as much cooking as you want. There is a large back porch that overlooks the Rio Grande where there is great fishing. We only caught smaller browns and rainbows (8-10") but caught 8 in a couple of hours. So much fun!
