Stayed in a lodge room. Fairly rustic here but everything was comfortable. Very friendly staff, great breakfast. Outside of Pagosa springs so nice to be off the beaten path a bit. Close to the falls. Would stay here again. Some newer hotels in pagosa springs but this place has more character.

It's difficult to understand how this place was rated #1 of 15 places in Pagosa Springs. It is on a busy highway; the sound of the trailer trucks speeding by is constant. Our cabin was small, airless, viewless, with an uncomfortable bed. A trail through the woods in back was not maintained and not particularly safe. If this was rated... More

The High Country Lodge is a wonderful family place to stay. It is located a few miles outside of Pagosa Springs. We were happy for the solitude and the "Colorado feel" of the place. The Lodge was booked three weeks before our arrival so I rented a cabin for my husband and I. Though more expensive, we enjoyed the separate... More

We rented 2 rustic cabins for our family of 8. The resort is easy to find, right off the highway. There was some noise from traffic, but don't let that keep you away from this place. It is in a nice setting and the grounds are well taken care of. We enjoyed using the hot tubs and the breakfast was... More

It's always a pleasure to hear we helped you make great memories while staying with us. That's what we are all about, and it helps to have a staff that have lived in the Pagosa area long enough to have a lot of knowledge about this part of Colorado to pass on to our guests for their enjoyment.

This quaint lodge located seven minutes out side of Pagosa Springs was a great find. It was clean and the service was friendly and helpful. Also, the price was awesome. If you get a chance make this apart of your plan...We will be going back.

Our young boys were very excited to stay in a hotel that wasn't a big chain. Hiking trails, fishing pond (although covered with pond scum and hard to fish), plenty of area for kids to play outside (and they even offer games and sports equipment!), delicious breakfast and great coffee/cappuccino machine, very friendly staff, clean rooms. Door locks a little... More

We are so glad to hear that you and your boys enjoyed your stay, and hope you will return whenever you are in our area. It sounds like you appreciated that we are not a "chain"-we like it as well, because it allows us more latitude to be unique, and accomodating to our guests. Pagosa Springs is the same way-unique...

This place is great! I am just sad we are only staying 2 nights! My two boys, 10 & 7 have also loved it. A staff member even sang happy birthday to my son this morning! Perfect place to bring the family!

My family of five stayed in a cabin here for two nights. The cabin was immaculate, the beds very comfortable,and the kitchen well stocked. After a day in the immensely beautiful Pagosa Springs Valley, it was wonderful to return to a very comfortable cabin and expansive lodge grounds. There were three hot tubs and a sauna, lawn swings, a fire... More

The rooms are super clean, breakfast is awesome, very comfortable. The staff is very friendly. I loved all of the personal touches that I saw starting in the lobby, very cozy. The best place to stay in Pagosa Springs.

Very friendly staff. We stayed in a cabin, which was perfect for the family. Great views of the mountains and close to Pagosa Springs if you want to go into town. Cabins have a kitchen to cook in and there are gas grills on the property that are in good working order. Also, probably one of the best locations for... More
