We didn't stay at the lodge, as we have a family member who lives in Pagosa Springs, with room for us to stay, but we did take advantage of a fun afternoon on the tubing hill. Reservations were simple to make online, and check-in was quick and easy. The Lodge employee who helped us was so great! We had 4 kids ages 8-11 with us, and he helped them get their tubes up the hill, and took requests on what kinds of pushes they wanted on the way down. The hill was fast enough to enjoy, but not so fast that I was nervous about anyone's safety. Just a little warning: There is no "magic carpet" to take up the hill, so anyone with mobility issues should not plan to participate. I run a few miles most days for exercise, and I even struggled at times. Still so fun though!

Came up for a long weekend of skiing with the boys. Guys loved the hot tubs and I loved the hot breakfast. We all appreciated that we had a jump on the drive up the pass. If you have not ridden the creek, you have not skied the best kept secret in CO. If you do come, this is the place to stay.

I travel extensively and only post reviews when I stay somewhere great or some place not so great. The High Country Lodge is one of the latter. The main reason for giving it two stars is because this place is listed by TripAdvisor as a 4 star hotel. Don’t get me wrong, it actually does a decent job at doing things that a one star or two star properties do. Thin walls, cheap, worn, transparent sheets, pillows that feel like a bag of diapers, phone booth bathroom ( close the door before you sit on the toilet or you won’t be able to get the door closed), and if the tv had shows as old as the date of manufacture, you would be watching a show from the 80’s. Special mention goes to the WiFi. This motel apparently uses multiple home style WiFi routers placed in certain rooms in an attempt to cover the entire property. You are at the mercy of fellow travelers who may unplug, interfere with, adjust or simply not recognize what the weird flashing thing is in their room and cut your WiFi off two rooms over. When the WiFi is down, which appears to be a regular occurrence, you are left with no communication with the outside world since there is no cell reception. To be fair, the motel does a good job with breakfast for a two star hotel. It was clean but everything offered was the cheapest, generic stuff you can get. The bathroom had shampoo but no conditioner and no shower gel. The motel is situated just a few feet off of the highway so prepare yourself for highway noise. TripAdvisor is doing a major disservice to its readers by listing this motel as a 4 star hotel. According to TripAdvisor, it’s the only four-star hotel in Pagosa Springs, this is why I booked it. Imagine how I felt when I arrived, walked in the room, and found myself in a classic, worn out roadside Motel. TripAdvisor gets ZERO stars for this one.

High Country Lodge & Cabins is an eco-friendly rural rustic Mountain Lodge with some wonderful amenities. The property is on 15 acres with a great full hot breakfast in the morning with a variety of options to choose from including specialty coffees from cappuccinos to espressos. The property has an onsite Snow Tubing Park with outdoor hot-tubs and Sauna along with a bar/lounge on property. Our rooms are comfortable, clean with some of the best Eco-friendly toiletries and premium amenities including flat screen TV’s with full cable and DVD players (Free Library of DVD movies in Lobby), in-room coffee & teas. If something was missing in your room, you should have notified us and we would have rectified the situation immediately. The property also has the best internet that is available in our rural community. We do not control town wide outages that may affect service. In addition, the rooms include a phone that you are allowed to call out on, so we do not understand your issue with the communication options. If you had issues with noise the lodge does provide a white noise machine that you could have asked the front desk for as you were notified at check-in. If you wanted more luxury or privacy, you did have the option of upgrading to one of our cabins. This property goes out if way to make sure the guests have a memorable visit. We are not a Four Seasons or the Beverly Hills Hilton nor do we claim to be one. If you are looking for that type of lodging, you need be looking somewhere other than a rural mountain community. We are proud of our #1 ranking on Trip Advisor that is earned by our hard work and satisfied customers.

We had a great time at the tubing park. Fun for everyone from our 4 year old daughter to my 36 year old husband. I liked the ticketed times to keep the number of tubers down. Line was never more than a 5 minute wait after hiking to the top of the hill. The hike is slightly challenging and probably wouldn’t be great for anyone with limited mobility, but our daughter was able to make the hike 6 times and I pulled up her tube. Was surprised our 6 year old son was able to haul his tube to the top by himself the same number of times. Line gets shorter and shorter as the hour and a half goes by and people get tired. Excellent activity to get kids (and parents) out of the house and burn some energy.
