We stayed at the Cabin by the Lake for four idyllic days and can't wait to go back! The cabin is simple and rustic, but very comfortable & clean, with lovely bathrooms and comfortable sofas & beds. The views are very pretty, and the path around the "lake" (really more of a large pond) makes a sweet little walk. The cabin's kitchen is well equipped (though - note to owners - you really need to provide a large pasta pot and maybe some herbs & salt!) and the coffee beans provided in the fridge made a delicious pot of coffee. We enjoyed lounging on the deck & the dock during the day, and inside on the very comfy sofas at night. Local trips to Mesa Verde and Silverton were just a start of the many activities for families in the area. Gardens on the property were pretty, and a very pleasant morning stroll of the property was a wonderful way to start a day of R&R.
The stars were bright, the air was pure, the people wonderfully helpful & sweet, and the breakfasts fresh & satisfying. I can't really think of anything I would change (except the pasta pot!). We will most definitely be back!
