High Country Lodge is almost always full on busy holidays. The cabins are very popular, and the facility is pet friendly. My wife and I had stayed there a few years ago and were never able to get reservations again until recently. We probably won't stay there again. This review is for the motel, not the cabins. The location is... More

Located about a five minute drive from downtown Pagosa Springs in the mountains off HWY160 where you can see the stars, not city lights. Friendly service and pet friendly too. We rented a private cabin about 700 Sq feet that had all the normal amenities in a smaller size. Stove, refrig, microwave, coffeemaker, dishes, glasses & silverware. Small flat screen... More

We were on a Colorado road trip and spent some time in Pagosa Springs. We stayed at the High Country Lodge and had a wonderfully cozy and comfortable stay. Got tub under the stars, nice room and great breakfast. Enjoyed browsing the lobby and exploring the grounds too.

I decided to surprise my husband for his birthday and Veteran's Day by booking cabin #404 at the High Country Lodge. From the second we walked into the door until the moment we left, we were in awe of this beautiful and charming gem of a lodge. The cabin was spotless. Comfortable beds and a hot shower made for a...

Beautiful, comfortable, and friendly staff! I'd stay here every time. Close to the springs and so much cheaper. Little cabin with a little kitchen, so romantic. Worth it! 3 hot tubs, you can have your own. The only ding I'd give is breakfast; eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal. Very basic but you could cook your own...

We're so glad you enjoyed our rustic cabin! They are very cozy and romantic, especially when you light up the wood stove, or fire place, and kick back with your favorite beverage and a movie, after a dip in one our hot tubs under a full moon! Thank you for choosing High Country Lodge! We hope you come back soon! More

We stayed in one of the cabins. It was so comfortable and cozy. We have stayed in the lodge before and it is also nice. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We go to Pagosa Springs often and always stay at High Country Lodge.

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at High Country Lodge. I called the lodge directly and the staff member was very friendly and informative. Following the call, an email arrived with all the specifics of our reservation. It was the best pre-stay communication I have ever received.

This is the second time I have stayed at this property. Far enough out of town to feel like you're out in the country but close enough to Pagosa Springs to take advantage of the restaurants and shops. Nice rooms and friendly staff! Next time I will bring family and rent one of the cabins!
