Beautiful, Peaceful, Serene. A great place to recharge your batteries.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Cutthroat Lodge and, once again, we absolutely loved it! The cabin has plenty of room, is very cozy, beautifully decorated, comfortable furniture, fully stocked with kitchen necessities, towels, sheets, blankets, and pillows. Rebekah, the property manager, is just wonderful to work with, and she was always available throughout our stay to answer questions. The cabin sits on a private road so traffic is very minimal. My husband and I enjoyed taking walks along the river and just reconnecting with each other. This is a wonderful place to “recharge your batteries”, meditate, clear your mind, and rid yourself of stress. The cabin overlooks the beautiful Rio Grande River. I enjoyed opening the window at night to take in the fresh mountain air and listen to the flowing river. We did not watch much TV, but there is Direct TV in the cabin along with a DVD player and video library. There is no Wi-Fi in the cabin, but that is okay as we really enjoy disconnecting from the workplace. Most of the restaurants and the library in town have Wi-Fi available if you really need to check your emails or social media. There are some great restaurants in town; our personal favorite was The Old Firehouse as they have some wonderful salads. We shopped at some great shops in town; The Cabin, Blue Eyed Bear Boutique, Mountain Lighthouse and Gallery, and Doc’s Outdoor Sports. We explored the trails by renting a side-by side (UTV) from the Outdoor Depot, which is located just minutes from the cabin. The views on the trails were absolutely amazing. Our 2 large doggies enjoyed the large fenced in yard where they could run around and explore. Not only was the cabin great, but the area it is located in is so peaceful and serene. We spent a lot of time sitting on the back deck reading some great books and just taking in the beautiful scenery. This is such a great place to get away from it all. Thank you to our hosts and Rebekah for allowing us to stay at the beautiful Cutthroat Lodge. We hope to see you next year, if not sooner.

Wonderful experience, beautiful and convenient setting for all the adventures near South Fork

  • 5 of 5

We found the cabin very clean and well stocked as others have described. We very much enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return. The fenced in backyard was convenient for our dog and we loved being close to the river. We had great successs fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout. Hiking in the mountains was convenient and uncrowded. If you’re into rock climbing, Penitnete Canyon is absolutely amazing! Overall great experience with this property, management and location.

The cabin was very clean and the location was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed. It was a little warm without AC, but after leaving the windows open over night, the temp inside was perfect. Fantastic location and close to a grocery store, souvenir shop, and outdoor rec rentals. Very short drive to Creede. Thanks, Rebekah!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to having you back anytime. I should have pointed out that there is a portable swamp cooler in the downstairs closet to help cool things down during the day. Rebekah

Comfortable lodge with scenic view of the Rio Grande within minutes of Wolf Creek ski area

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 spent a wonderful week spring break 2018 at Cutthroat Lodge. Check in was a breeze and the cabin was prepared and ready for us on arrival. The lodge is well stocked with clean linens and towels and the only thing the kitchen didn't have was a waffle iron - everything we needed to prepare meals for our crew was there (except the food, of course). Beds were comfy, plenty of closet space, and the hot water (I mean HOT) lasted through a full round of showers for 9 bodies. The well water tastes awesome and soap rinses easily from dishes and clothes. The fridge was large enough to hold a week's worth of food and there are enough coffee filters to last until the next millennium! The wood burning stove (a must for any visit to the mountains) was easy to work and there was an abundance of cut and split logs to burn. We kept the thermostat at 55 the entire week and it was pleasant in the lodge all day/night. You can open the screened windows in each sleeping area at night if you want cool mountain air. The Rio Grande is only a few yards from the front door and there is sufficient bank to fish from or you can wade in easily. The back yard is fenced in if you decide to bring your pets. There is a "mud room" off the kitchen with access to the front drive where a large dog can stay as well as where you can store your ski/boarding gear. There are a few good restaurants in town and the local grocery, the Rainbow mart, has everything from fresh veggies and meats, to staples, to snow chains and outdoor gear. Don't bring anything other than food - many previous guests have left cleaning supplies, the aforementioned coffee filters, and laundry soap - so wait until you see what you need then head to the Rainbow mart. The Wolf Creek ski area is about 20 miles from the lodge - much closer than accessing the ski area from Pagosa Springs. Cutthroat is a great value for large families or small groups. We're already planning our next stay at Cutthroat Lodge. Thanks Rebecca and our hosts for a wonderful get away!

Great living spaces and big yard.

  • 4 of 5

We caught some beautiful views of the mountains and skies from the front of the house! Kitchen was well stocked with spices and dining ware. Our kids had a fun time in the backyard stomping through snow and building a snowman. Since we went skiing, the wet room area was great for removing all our gear without messing up the rest of the house. It was a 30 mins drive to the Wolf Creek Ski Resort, which isn’t terrible. Overall a great time was had by all.

Rebekah was great to work with as well!

Thank you for the hospitality!

Lovely location. Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely time at the cutthroat lodge. The location is pretty much just outside of south fork and was easy to find and very easy to access. You couldn't possibly get any closer to the river!

We had everything we needed to cook and entertain. The fenced in yard was wonderful for my puppy who typically likes to roam. The neighbors around the area were super friendly. And Rebekah was kind, quick to respond, and wonderfully accommodating to all of my requests.

Overall we had a great time and I look forward to returning to enjoy again!
