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 San Juan River Village

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

Absolutely loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so wonderful! From the decorating to the cleanliness, this place is superb!

The view was superb and house was easy to find.

The hot tub was VERY clean and perfect for two!

The interior was so well decorated and very cozy. The fireplace kept the whole house nice and warm. Lots of nice linens and the beds were very comfortable.

Basically, no complaints AT ALL about the adorable cottage!

We would highly recommend this property!!

Quaint, Clean with all the amenities needed

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Acorn Cottage. Pagosa Springs is a great little town, and the cottage is perfectly placed along the highway that leads you up to the Wolf Creek Ski Area. The cottage was very clean and the owner had everything we needed to cook and entertain ourselves. The cottage was cleverly decorated, and the views were wonderful. We will be back!

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

We found everything as advertised with the cabin. It was super clean and decorated nicely. It is the perfect distance from Pagosa just far enough from town to be private and close enough to be in town in 7 minutes. We would definitely recommend it to anyone.
