About Pamela Smith

I always dreamed of owning my own mountain cabin, and here it is for all to enjoy. A little about me, I have two grown sons, love hunting for antiques and decorating.

I am also an artist and you will see my handiwork about Acorn Cottage, I also built the dining table with my Dad, found and refinished all the antique chairs around it! All the other vintage and antique furnishings are my finds and I restored all of them as well. Please enjoy!

Why Pamela Smith chose Pagosa Springs

Incredibly beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes, forest and alpine meadows, it looks like Switzerland!

What makes this cabin unique

Much closer to Wolf Creek Skiing than lodging in town, only 20 minutes, horseback riding, hot tub soaking, bird watching, meeting deer and elk who think Acorn Cottage is their's, dining out, fireplace and the incredible stars at night!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A perfect cabin to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was better than I imagined! Clean and bright and beautifully decorated. Modern and updated but still rustic and inviting. My family and I loved how cozy and comfortable we were from the start! We skied Wolf Creek during the day and relaxed in the hot tub at night. A truly wonderful getaway that we will be visiting again!

Cute small cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled to Pagosa Springs for Spring Break. This cabin was perfect for the 3 of us. The loft area is prefect for kids and the master bedroom was large with a connecting bathroom to the loft area. We enjoyed the hot tub every night. The cabin was close to Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek. Thank you for the wonderful stay at your cabin.

Our Cozy Cottage in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

Acorn Cottage was just perfect for our winter vacation with friends! The location was ideal being close to skiing and also Pagosa Springs. It was cozy but yet we all had plenty of privacy with the well designed floor plan. The four of us loved the warm and tasteful décor that was like being at grandma's quaint mountain retreat. It's a very inviting place with a pot belly stove and beautiful handmade quilts. Of course, we loved ending our days soaking in the hot tub under the stars at night. Even though Acorn Cottage is rustic...the bathrooms are very modern and up to date. The kitchen is one of the best stocked kitchens of any rental we've ever stayed in. Pam and her staff's attention to detail is impressive! We definitely plan on returning!!!
