Very cute quaint space with beautiful views and friendly staff. Lots of things to do and everything close by! Quite, horseback riding, rafting, hiking, shopping, seeing the mines! I will definitely go back! It's only open during the summer so next summer I may be back!

My wife and I come to stay at cottonwood cove every year. We love the rustic charm of the resort. The setting in a grove of mature cottonwoods next to the Rio Grande river is amazing. There was a little visitor waiting to greet us. I posted a photo of him. If you want a Colorado experience that has horses,... More

First, location listed as South fork, but is way closer to Creede. Noting fancy, but fits in with the rural charm of Creede. Breakfast buffet is a plus, eggs, a meat (great bacon), pancakes, and of course biscuits and gravy. There is basic TV and wifi, no cell service, but selection encourages one to unplug and hook up instead with... More

We held our family reunion here and already booked it for the next one. If you are looking for a classic cabin experience this is the place. Each cabin is unique, with some more modern than others, and assorted sizes too. While you do have cable TV, you can truly unplug as cell service only works up the road and... More

We stayed two nights at Cottonwood Cove on our way to Lake City. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We went horseback riding and rafting and had a great time! There were 14 of us total and every time we ate at the restaurant they gave us our very own room in the back so we could always sit... More

We had driven by Cottonwood Cove en route to Lake City, CO for the last 15 years and always said "we should stop there". Well, we're so glad we finally did! Our family of five had an amazing time rafting, horseback riding, and of course, eating at the amazing restaurant. If you frequent the SW Colorado mountains, or just want... More

We were given the opportunity to stay at Cottonwood Cove for several days and were pleased with our experience. All of the staff were kind, accommodating and went above our expectations. We were traveling with a large group including several children and they never made us feel like the nuisance we were! They welcomed us with loving arms and made... More

We visited Cottonwood Cove with a large group for a family reunion. Very beautiful area, right on the Rio Grande on one side and stunning rock formations and forest all around. The staff there were great, and being such a large group, we kept them busy. The cabin was nice, newly remodeled, and clean. The restaurant was good, clean, and... More

What a wonderful time our family, 20 of us, had staying here for a week! Mike and Kayla, went above and beyond to make our time here a great experience. This isn't our first time to stay here and it certainly won't be our last! It is all ages friendly, from our youngest, a year old to the Great Grandparents,... More

Very rustic and quiet. Loved the mountain scenery and the wildlife. Great fishing right outside of cabin. Kayla and Mike the managers are the friendliest people. You need something and they are more than willing to help you. The catfish dinner in their restaurant is to die for. Never had one bad meal there the week we were there. Horseback... More
