I really wanted to like this place. I chose to stay here because of the beautiful location along the Rio Grande, and it's outward funky charm. Unfortunately that charm only went skin deep. I stayed in cabin 14. Upon entering the unit my senses were assaulted by a very strong musty smell. The brown carpet was stained and old. The... More

We are sorry to hear that your stay with us was less than great, however, we feel that your comments were generally unfounded. We take pride in ensuring our guest's comfort, and we ask that our guests give us a chance to fix anything that was not indicative of that. We are continually working to update and repair our cabins... More

My wife and I attended a family reunion and it could not have been a better experience!! The location on the river is breath-taking and the service was outstanding. Mike, Kayla and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make lifetime memories for our children (3 and 6). From horseback riding to hikes with amazing views... More

Very enjoyable and a great place to stay. Service was great and the food was wonderful, would return any chance I could. Employees at cottonwood all loved their jobs and it showed. Made our vacation great, we could not have asked for a better place to stay. New management that really cares. Thank you for a wonderful time.

The cabin we chose was rustic, which added lots of excitement and drama for the grandkids. I loved the 1940's gas stove in the kitchen. It was comfortable, quaint, a great location for sightseeing, horseback riding, rafting, fishing, hiking, and exploring Creede. We took in the Repertorie Theatre for additional fun. The staff were delightful. It felt like we were... More

We have stayed here a number of times and it is a great place to get away and unwind. The amenities include a restaurant and gift shop, as well as recreational opportunities. The camp host is friendly and knowledgable about where to find the best fishing. Wildlife comes down the mountain and was easily viewed out our back window. We... More

Was driving towards South Folk from Creed, CO when we stumbled onto Cottonwood Cove, which runs along the Rio Grande River off Route 143. We stayed in cabin 25, the Honeymoon cabin, which had just been remodeled inside/out. Very cozy! A little dark in the front part of the room, the but full kitchen and bathroom have windows. The bed... More

We traveled from Hobbs NM for our wedding and had several guests come up as well. Mike and Kayla and the entire staff were amazing. They accommodated us in every way possible to make our wedding memorable. We had our wedding dinner catered by the staff here at the Cove and it was delicious. The pavilion ( which Mike took... More

Loved this place! These are cabins, not four star hotel rooms. That being said, the cabin was clean, the bed was comfortable, and our stay was great. The owners are just great people. I am looking forward to going back sometime. word of warning, cell phones don't get reception...but who cares...it is a vacation.

A family favorite for many years. We stayed in cabin 26. It's a two bedroom with a full bath, a kitchen and a living room. They have direct TV. This year, because of the fires there was no breakfast included. They did discount the cabin.
