Not what was expected

  • 1 of 5

This property is described as rustic. Dilapidated would be closer to the truth. Some serious TLC is needed here. Too many issues to go into detail. Getting locked out on the first night with a car load of groceries left a bad taste. The location is nice and Diana was very helpful, many thanks to her. We would not stay here again.

Great rustic cabin in South Fork

  • 5 of 5

Great location backing up to national forest and along the Rio Grande. Well kept yard and inside, though with rustic charm. Hummingbirds outside windows were entertaining.

Everything was provided including coffee making items.

A note for fisherman, it's very steep to the river nearby, so it's best to go to the nearby bridge or somewhere else. TV is quite small, such that you can't read closed captioning from the couches, though maybe we shouldn't watch TV on vacation anyway.
