I have reviewed this place before. I can't say enough about how great and nice they are. This is my 4th time staying there. The cabins are great. The one we stayed in has a fire place. You get one free bundle of wood. Then purchase other bundles for $7.00. We did purchase one bundle but went to Market place... More

Loved our stay here. We travel with our preteen son and had a king room with a sofa bed. Very nice accommodations, loved the tubing hill next door, the games and video library and the friendly staff. We were there 4 days and skied at Wolf Creek. The self serve laundry was convenient. Only negative was no variation on the... More

This was a stopping point for me at the end of a long week of business travel based on a late change in itinerary. I made the reservation by phone at the last minute and found staff and management to be VERY helpful. I stayed in cabin 402 which had two double beds, a rough hewn wood table with benches,... More

Stayed here for three nights in cabin 405 at end of December 2015 as part of our winter vacation trip. Just wanted to kick back and relax and play in the snow with our kids.

Sounds like you had a magical stay in the snow at HCL! Each of our four seasons here has something special to offer, and for your family it was the snow you so seldom ever see in Texas. We have had a lot of the white stuff this winter-pine trees are powdered into different shapes, and the wind and sun... More

The room was very clean and modern. The staff was very friendly and suggested some great restaurants. Breakfast tasted great. Looked beautiful with the snow and very close to Wolf Creek for skiing and snowboarding. Very happy with my stay will definitely be returning.

We spent five nights in Cabin 406A at high Country Lodge. Really enjoyed the place, particularly the staff. All were extremely friendly and helpful. About as close to Wolf Creek Ski Area as possible, but still close to Pagosa Springs. Although it snowed hard pretty much the entire time we were there, the staff did a great job of keeping... More

We enjoyed reading your great review! You know, snow storms are always a test, but we have a great staff that works as a team to ensure our guests enjoy their stay. Part of that is moving all that wonderful white stuff out of the way so everyone can get out to go skiing! We enjoyed hosting you and your... More

We found this little lodge to be a delight! Friendly and kind staff (allowed my parents to hang out on the lobby couch for two hours after we checked-out while we snow-tubed and waited for our house rental check-in time). Delicious breakfast and DVD and board game library. Best part is definitely the tubing hill, which we went to again... More

You had the kind of experience we want all of our guests to have at HCL! The nice thing is, as a "Mom and Pop" lodge, we can accomodate our guests in ways the large chains are unable to do, and that can make a lot of difference to a guest. We are so glad you had fun in our... More

We have stayed here four or five times over 10 years. We have always rented one of the cabins. They are cozy, clean, and comfy, with plenty of room, kitchens, and wood burning stoves. We love the hot tubs, the breakfast, the sledding hill, and the fact that pets are welcome! We would have stayed here for our recent Wolf... More

We stayed at the High Country Lodge December 23-27. Our original plans were to ski Snow Mass, CO but my husband changed our plans last minute to stay in Pagosa to ski WolfCreek. I chose the lodge because some website said it was #1 in town. Not. I was even told by people in the town while shopping that it... More

Some people will read my 4 stars and take that as a negative. However, I thought the place was quite nice and I would definitely recommend staying there again. If I could have given 4.5 stars, I would have. However, there were a few areas which would have benefited from improvement. Pros: Nice location situated between Pagosa Springs and Wolf... More
