This was our third time staying and our family of 6 had another great time. We opted for the bunk house to take advantage of the second bathroom and larger kitchen. The cabin was clean, everything worked, and provided the respite we were all looking forward to on our trip. We will be back for certain!

This place is so nice, and the staff are nice also. Rustic charm, decent price, clean rooms. Breakfast was okay, but filling. This was a good choice, I felt, for us to make. It is five minutes from Pagosa Springs.

This was a second attempt to allow Pagosa Springs to redeem itself. This trip was a motorcycle ride down to the natural hot springs and decided to spend the night at the HCL . We rented a cabin as there was 5 travelers all on motorcycles. Riding thru the rain most of the day to get there. Once there we... More

We stayed one night. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. Max and Carrie the managers really care for the grounds and guests! We took a nice dog walk around the impressive 15 acres. Breakfast was delicious.

My sisters and I stayed in a studio cabin Sunday May 17, 2015. It was very nice. The grounds were beautiful, very peaceful and the breakfast was good. The staff was great. We will be going back soon. Located about 2 miles from town and was very easy to find.

We stayed in one of the studio cabins and while it was cozy, they are very close together and lack any real privacy. Also, the shower in the cabin is tiny and has very little water pressure, along with a sign on the wall notifying users of the small water heater capacity. I think next time we will find a... More

This review is very puzzling to us-you say you stayed in Aug 2014, yet you didn’t write a review until 9 months later. We are available 24/7 for the slightest issue, but it seems you did not contact us at any time during your stay with any problems. We apologize if you feel you had a less than excellent stay....
