Great weekend in Chama

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The accomodatins were lovely, KC was a terrific host, and we loved our relaxing few days. We particularly liked stiing on the porch and watching all the woodpeckers, nuthatches and grosbeaks that came to the feeders, along with the hummingbirds. We'll be back.

Peaceful, beautiful and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. Everything was so nice, and it was so peaceful. The house was stocked with everything you would need and then some. The river was a short walk away and the wildlife was amazing. I can't thank the owners enough for a relaxing and comfortable vacation.

Wonderful house in the woods - literally!

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we wanted. On the edge of the woods, by the river, with wildlife walking by daily. The location is ideal for those wanting to run to Pagosa Springs or ride the Cumbres-Toltec Scenic Railroad, or just sit on the porch and relax.

The house has all the items you need to cook in the kitchen (although I really missed my Chef's knife) and spacious living area. Although it was just me and my husband, we could have easily brought the kids and grandkids and had plenty of room.

Just a note, for all of you out there who like milemarkers, it is milemarker 170 for the turnoff.

We are already thinking about returning next year!

Great place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay in two years. The cabin is in great shape and at a great location. Don't miss the fishing at Cooper's below El Vado! Thanks again KC!

Our favorite

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer trip to this location. The house is clean and spacious, great kitchen, well appointed furniture and satellite television. The bird feeders are a big plus and even though we are pretty active bird observes we have discovered two species we have never previously experienced just sitting on the front porch. The owners are wonderful and extremely accomodating. Nearby fishing, hiking and just touring some of the most beautiful scenery in the west is all at your doorstep.We just booked again for next year. If we lived closer we would stay there several times yearly.

It was a great place to stay. The house was spacious. Clean. Owners were easy to work with. Simple directions to get there. I'm glad we stayed there, we did the cumbres and Toltec steam engine train ride. It's about 20 mins away.
