This was our 4th summer to spend our vacation at Elk Point Lodge. We just can't get enough of the place and the people. The location is absolutely gorgeous. The cabins are clean and cozy with comfortable beds! Our cabin faced the lake and we spent mornings sipping hot chocolate and reading books on the porch while our daughter had the time of her life feeding peanuts to the friendly chipmunks. We always go in August (to escape the Texas heat) and love that we need to pack sweatshirts to wear in the early morning and evening. One of our favorite activities is horseback riding. The trails go through the San Juan Forest and by Vallecito Lake. It is breath-taking and so peaceful. Pete - the wrangler and guide knows horses like no one else and enjoys teaching us about them. Beth was a new wrangler this year and was so friendly and helpful. The spa is new this year and I took advantage and got an incredible massage from Virginia - a great way to start off a relaxing vacation! We loved skipping rocks and wading in the lake - just a short walk down the hill from our cabin. This year, we also spent an afternoon hiking at Pine River trailhead - about a 3 mile drive from Elk Point. The hike was gorgeous and leads you to the river's edge where you can wade and river walk. One of the best features of Elk Point Lodge is the people. The owners, Lark and JR are two of the nicest people you'd want to meet and go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great time. We truly feel as if Elk Point Lodge is our second home! We are already planning our trip for next summer.
