My wife and I reserved two nights at Cottonwood Cove. The campground seemed nice however the cabins were really run down. Dirty and we tried to relax with the pet mice running around the kitchen. Well, I think they were pet mice, they weren’t afraid of us. No cell service and after about 3 hours we decided to leave. Of course no refund. We would not go back.
Please find another place to stay, we were so disappointed with our stay here. We decided to splurge for the cabin 31 because in the description it said cabin 31 was the most secluded cabin they had. This could not be further from the truth. The owners of the facility decided to place rented RV spots right up on the cabin, and the individuals staying in those RV’s parked their cars and trucks right up on cabin 31. All day and into the evening we constantly heard doors opening and slamming and conversations. The RV closest to the cabin 31 had a cat and every morning we stayed there they would send the cat out at 6am in the morning and the cat would immediately start meowing incessantly to get back inside. The cat woke our whole family, including our kids sleeping upstairs (the walls are thin). The cat would also meow in the late evenings as well when we were trying to get our kids to sleep. When we addressed this with the manager, she said that there had been complaints about the cat so they would have to do something about this. It was very apparent the management was well aware of the problems going on around cabin 31 but was doing nothing to fix it. The silverware in the drawers had food stuck in them still, which during covid you would think they would take greater care to clean. There is no dishwasher and we were only left a small amount of soap for cleaning with a washcloth, no sponge or scrubbing pad provided. The kitchen was not stocked well, and I finally gave up cooking meals. There just were not enough cooking utensils and pots and pans. For example, there was only one very small sheet pan that could be used in the oven, everything else was plastic and would melt. The refrigerate was turned up to a warm temperature, and took 24 hours to cool down. We ended having to juggle food in and out of the freezer to keep from losing what we had brought with us. Again, bringing these concerns up to the manager she did not seem surprised and she admitted they needed to fix these issues. We were offered $100 off of our stay due to these difficulties, which they never credited back to our account. To conclude, this is not a private cabin, you are not secluded. And I am hoping to keep another family from overpaying for a cabin they think will be secluded.…
My husband and I recently stayed at Cottonwood Cove for 4 nights. This is a great place for a mountain getaway. The customer service is absolutely awesome. Be sure to visit the gift shop and don't miss the ice cream shop. And you can't leave without a piece of homemade coconut cream pie...oh my!!!
We stayed one night at an RV site that directly faced an open pasture (horses!) and a towering rock formation; really beautiful! Even though the RV sites were close together, there were only 24? total sites; so no crowding. Very quiet and peaceful. The property extends across the road with cabins, but we did not venture over there, so cannot comment. Firewood was complimentary and the staff friendly and helpful. Full hookups and wifi worked well. We camped in our 23 ft. Class C RV. Definitely would return. Thank you!
On our way to Creede, we drove by this spot and came back after visiting creede and luckily they had a few cabins that were available for the evening. After a week of tent camping in the mountains, we were excited to have a hot shower and a bed. Laundromat was available which was a bonus. Kids had playground areas to play on and games were available to check out if needed. Staff was amazing and you have to try the ice cream. Highly recommend this location.
