About Karen Markum

Our family has vacationed in South Fork for the last 10 years! We have so many great memories that we would love to share with you. Come and visit with YOUR family and make memories of your own. We have a list available of the things we love to do while visiting and would love to share that with you and see what new adventures await you.

Karen Markum purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Karen Markum chose Alpine Village

South Fork is located in the perfect spot for Skiing, Snowmobiling, Fly Fishing, World Class Golfing at the Rio Grande Club, Hot Springs, Live Theatre, etc. You can go to Pagosa Springs for the day, experience the live theatre, museums and river rafting in Creede which is only 20 minutes away.

What makes this cabin unique

Watch the sunrise from the front porch while sipping on your fresh cup of coffee. Eat your breakfast outside while listening to hummingbirds and watching for deer in the front yard.

Great cabin in Rio Grande National Park!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great cabin and the right size for our family of 5. It was in a perfect location for us to be able to see all sides of the Rio Grande National park.

Thank you so much for the wonderful place for our vacation!

Comfortable Cabin in South Fork

  • 4 of 5

The cabin in South Fork had a comfortable living space. It's location allowed us to do a day trip everyday. We enjoyed the view from the porch. The basket of fliers at the cabin was very helpful. Our only problem was water. We did very little cooking and no laundry but returned late one evening to find we had no water. Luckily we were able to reach the property manager who came about 2am. Water was available the next morning. We found where to take the garbage but suggest that garbage disposal should be included in the fee for cleaning. The property owner may want to address these two items.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for visiting. We are sorry if the water was any inconvenience. The cabin is on a well so unfortunately we are at the mercy of supply and demand. We did install a 400 gallon holding tank as a back-up to prevent something like that from happening but unfortunately it appears that was depleted as well. We are always striving to make your stay the best it can be so we are in the process of arranging trash pick up for renters and included for the first of next year. Thank you for the suggestion and we hope you enjoyed your stay and made memories for years to come!

The cabin was great! We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning drinking our coffee. We even got to see deer pass by the cabin.

Perfect Summer Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Cabin, there were four of us through most of the stay and there was more than enough room. We were close to all of our activities and the evenings and morning on the front porch were awesome. We saw deer almost every day and the hummingbirds were a delight to watch.

This is a great cabin that is fully furnished with more than you can reasonably expect- we will be coming back!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and this quiet little cabin. I will definitely plan to stay again. It does get hot but there are plenty of fans and it cools off amazingly during the night.

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect week, perfect weather! We enjoyed staying at the cabin. It's got all the basics with beautiful views. Conveniently located near South Fork, Del Norte with easy access to Creede and Wolf Creek. The cabin was clean and tidy with ample stocks of pantry items, cooking utensils, dishes, linens, etc. We hiked up to Treasure Falls, enjoyed the late spring snow at Wolf Creek, went to Taste of Creede, biked in Alamosa along the river, took the D-Loop single track around the hill in Del Norte, shopped with our friends at both Kristi Mountain Sports locations in Alamosa and Del Norte, ate at Three Barrel Brewery in Del Norte (wood-fired pizza, calzones) drove over for an afternoon in Pagosa Springs, too many other fun things, never turned the tv on and wondered why we ever left the San Luis Valley to be in Texas. Loved it!!! Thank you, Karen!!!
