My friend and I stayed overnight at HCL while on a "girls' outing" to Pagosa Springs. It was the first time for each of us to stay at this property, but we will come back. We stayed in a lodge room which was nicely appointed and clean. (Hope the owners will redecorate soon. You can maintain a rustic ambiance without... More

We love being called "The Pride of Pagosa", because that's what we strive for every day. Thank you! We work very hard to keep our property as neat and clean as possible, to make it pleasant for all our guests. Providing a well balanced, complimentary breakfast with each room and cabin is part of that. We serve protein-scrambled eggs and... More

The warm welcome and helpful front desk individuals aided in locating great dining spots. Prices reasonable with AAA discount honored. Finding a mid to upper end accommodation in Pagosa is a challenge, but High Country Lodge serves the purpose for a good nights sleep. Rooms could use updated appointments and more cheerful colors as the decor is rather dated. Refrigerator,... More

We spent two nights here for quick weekend getaway and enjoyed our stay. Although the lodge is a few miles outside of town, The surrounding scenery was beautiful!

This property is immaculate! We had an amazing time here, it was the perfect place for our family reunion! We stayed in 6 of the cabins and they were super clean and cozy.

This Property is delightful and so "Colorado". The hanging baskets of colorful flowers along the front deck adds a welcoming touch to the lodges's overall ambiance. The friendly staff and owners made our overnight stay well worth it. We loved the pet treats and blanket provided for our dog..Nice! The breakfast items were delicious .

What a cute and charming property! Loved it! My son (8) had lots of space to run around and be safe. My daughter (15) enjoyed the nature hiking trail and exploring the 15 acres.

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.

We love it that you "get" us, and what we are all about! As a family owned business we have so much more latitude than chains to make guests happy, and we don't have to fit a corporate mold, so we are free to have character dnd do fun things, like being "rustic".

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

This review has puzzled the entire staff of HCL. You booked our largest cabin (the Bunkhouse), which sleeps 6 to 8 guests, and is well suited for large families and singles who don't want to share beds. Then we had a cancellation (which hardly ever happens) on a smaller, cozier cabin for you and your husband and dog and called... More
