Clean rooms, but not inviting. Do offer a refrigerator and coffeepot in the room. The remote had some issues and the lighting is not calming. Lodge rooms face the street, so there is street noise. A hot Breakfast is included, but felt chaotic to get our food due to multiple food areas set up around the "L" shaped room. Didn't...

It sounds like one of our cozy log cabins might have been a better choice for your stay. The cabins are located against the hillside in the trees behind the lodge, where it is quieter, and very relaxing. It is difficult to accomodate food allergies simply because there are so many. Most guests will let us know at booking, and...

Great cabin, the heating situation just needs to be addressed. Guest bedroom gets way too hot. I really liked how stocked the kitchen was and we were able to cook all of our meals there. I was disappointed that we could not tube the hill because of lack of snowfall, but the hot tubs were a great amenity!

We are so glad you had a good stay. We just restocked all the kitchens with new pots and pans, and utensils in the past couple of months, to ensure our guests would have enough variety so they could cook easily. I am sorry about the tubing hill. We had tons of snow this year but in late February, we...

The owners of High Country were just wonderful. Our cabin was the perfect setting and stayed very warm at night when the temp would drop to 20 degrees outside. The hot tubs were a treat and we greatly enjoyed the sledding hill and breakfast. Coffee was excellent. We also enjoyed using some of the games and movies that were available...

It sounds like you had a great family trip this winter! We hope you will come back often in different seasons, and see all that this corner of Colorado has to offer.

Picked this place right before almost booking a cabin through VRBO and very glad I did. The very good complimentary breakfast, and discount lift tickets made it a great value. Simple, clean hotel room and very conveniently located. I think it would be a great place for reunions because of the wide variety of lodging options i.e cabins and hotel...

We are so glad you picked High Country Lodge, and had a great stay! And you are very right, about reunions. Many reunions use HCL as a venue, and it is a popular spot for weddings as well. You mentioned a lot of amenities in your review that will help other prospective guests to make an informed decision about us....

We have stayed in the hotel rooms and cabins, both are clean and nice but the beds and pillows could stand an update. The location is perfect (easy to the slopes and to town) breakfast is great, the three outdoor hot tubs are awesome, plus the new owners are very accommodating.

You have a point about the beds and pillows-we are in the middle of updating many things, including linens, pillows, etc. We would like to wave a wand and instantly transform everything the way we would like, but being on a budget like most of our guests, we have to do things incrementally, and when weather permits. But keep coming...

Will most likely stay here if returning to Pagosa Springs or Wolf Creek. Excellent amenities including hot tubs, sauna, cabins, and sledding hill in the right season. 20 min from Wolf creek and even closer to pagosa springs, which was nice since it was away from town a little.

We had a great time at High Country Lodge in Pagosa Springs! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in suggesting area restaurants. The property is located just outside of town and is a wonderful place to stay. We can't wait to visit again!!

Rooms are a little small, especially the bathroom. However, the are nice, clean, and comfortable. Hot tubs were an added bonus after a long day of skiing. Good advice on places to eat when we checked in. We really enjoyed our stay.

Always a great place to stay. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. We have stayed in several different accommodations at High Country Lodge. They can accommodate any size crowd with rooms and cabins. We book a year in advance to insure getting the cabin we want.

We enjoy all our guests, but we have a lot of special people who come back year after year, who have become what we call "High Country Lodge family", and we look for their return time after time. Thank you for being part of that, and letting others know your experience here. We appreciate you very much!
