Log of course, covered porch, beautiful main room with fireplace, couch, rocking chair, and kitchen and table, big comfortble bedroom, and big,... More

The fishing at Corkins Lodge was excellent! The cabin was rustic but comfortable and the beds were great. It was quiet and the neighbors were friendly. Philo, the manager, took care of everything we needed. The views and area are well worth the trip alone and the fishing was over the top! We stayed three nights and I wish we... More

We were in the area after a fishing trip the third week in July 2016 and Corkins Lodge was recommended by our guides as a place we may want to stay the next time we visited. We decided to check it out. When we arrived construction was being done on the cabin beside the office. We were told a movie... More

This place was the absolute best ever. Great little cabin with a full kitchen, full bathroom, living room with fireplace (which we used). Grounds were gorgeous. There was a game room where we played ping pong. There was also a place to play horseshoes, bocce ball, swings, a pool (closed for the winter).

We've been going to Corkin's for several years and have stayed in several different cabins. We've used the Log House for Staff Retreats and the other cabins for personal use. They are always nice and well-maintained. The manager, Philo, is always friendly and glad to see you. Corkin's is a great spot to rest and relax.

We rented the Log Cabin with a group of 11, including 6 kids for 4 nights. We had visited this resort 7-8 years ago and wanted to return for the wildlife and nature. The cabin is roomy and beautifully designed, but had a bad problem with mice. We complained, and they left 2 mouse traps on our picnic table. We... More

We usually stay in one of the inexpensive cabins but due to scheduling problems splurged for a newer one. With grand babies needing constant supervision and a place for naps, this three bedroom was awesome. The design was perfect. I watched the full moon rise from my bed every night. The kitchen was lovely. We come here every year and... More

We've been coming to Corkins for years during most summers. It's such a great place with something for everyone. The cabins are cozy and the quiet atmosphere is very peaceful. I've seen others post complaints about a dog on the property that scares the wildlife away. While it's true that they do have a dog, we still say plenty of... More

Been going there for 9 years and always stay at the Ponderosa. We actually have a ranch with about 1/2 the size of land but love the high elevation and getting away from cattle. I am not sure about the old owners comings and goings but with the new ones you can't rent while he and his group are visiting.... More

“If your one to freak if you found a mouse in your room then this isn't for you. If you looking to get away and just play in nature this is the place. Not a big hunter, don't allow hunters on my ranch but found the hunters renting the lodge all to be nice and the outfitters very quiet.”
