Spent one night here on advice of a friend. First of all it's not as close to the Hotsprings as I was led to believe but close enough. We were able to get discount tickets at the front desk for the basic package at the Hotsprings. Beware if you have cash you'll get the best discount--$4/ticket. Credit card it $2/ticket.... More

Thank you for contacting us. Being located just 2 miles from the hot springs and restaurants has certain advantages, in that it allows us to have 15 acres of space where we can have a large greenbelt with play areas, horseshoe pits, a picnic area with gas grills, and a hiking trail. We are glad you enjoyed many of our... More

Stayed her on a cross country trip from California to Austin. After several days in the desert, the cooler weather was a welcome relief as well as all of the lovely greenspace. The lodge offers rooms in the main lodge as well as nice sized cabins. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with kitchenette with small refrigerator, microwave, a... More

It was a pleasure hosting you after your desert sojourn. While we can't take credit for the cooler weather, we can take credit for our lovely grounds, rooms, and cabins. It's great being just 5 minutes from town, because we are able to have a 15 acre area for our guests to enjoy, as well as mountain views, while still... More

We ran up from Santa Fe to Pagosa to check out a rental property we have scheduled for Christmas, and decided to stay at High Country. We had stayed at their cabins previously, which we enjoyed. This visit the cabins were full so we stayed in a king room in the hotel. Spotlessly clean , a full refrigerator and freezer,... More

We love the HCL, this was our third visit.. We had a king room in the lodge and it was so nice. We hiked the trail and sat outside in the evening and star gazed. Everyone was outside enjoying the grilling area, and the fire pit and play area. Breakfast was good and they have good coffee. Very reasonably priced.... More

Excellent little motel with cabins. We stayed in the motel and thought the rooms were clean, neat, and we'll stocked with towels, soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

Reasonably priced and nicely appointed cabin with all amenities. Impressed by the attention to detail and how clean and neat the cabin was. Made it feel like a home away from home. Highly recommended.

Easy to book the cabin on-line. Very helpful check-in person. Lovely,comfortable, well equipped cabin. Hot tubs clean and well lit. Some traffic noise, but not too bad. Our schedule (and budget) would not have allowed a longer stay.
