“Our Family has been vacationing here for decades”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Our family, 4 generations, has been staying at Pine River lodge since long before I was born 43 years ago. I have stayed in almost every cabin and many of them 3 or 4 times over the years. The cabins are true cabins not Vacation Homes. They are built into the mountains overlooking one of the most beautifull lakes in the United States.

The Atkinson Family that owns and runs Pine River Lodge have always treated us as family and works hard to make thier guests happy. Over the years they have added a park/playground, a pool and some new cabins.

Our most recent stay was in June of last year with the 7 members of my imediate family. We stayed in cabin #26 for the 1st time. It is set in the Pine Trees with a great view of the lake from the deck. The bedrooms are big and comfortable.

We did not fish this trip but we did horseback, ride the Durango to Silverton Train, rafted the Animas River, enjoyed the Bar D Chuckwagon and hiked 6 miles into the Weminuche Wilderness. All highly recomended

We will be back again this July with 4 generations of family. This year we plan to fish the lake, go to Mesa Verde and have a great family vacation.

This is a Gods country and everyone should go at least once.

Room Tip: Call them and let them know what you are looking for. The Atkinson's will get you in the best a...

There are three words to describe this lodge: "dirty", "rundown" and "overpriced". Please be aware of the bugs/ants in the cabins also.

We have stayed here at least three times in the past. Not only is the family EXTREMELY friendly, but they have multiple types of cabins. No matter what you are looking for, they have it! And if they don't, they are friendly enough to help you find it.

I can't say enough nice things about this Lodge.
