The view of the lake is gorgeous with the cabins nicely separated to give some privacy. We stayed at the "horse cabin" as we are horse people and loved interacting with the horses daily. We used the cabin as a rest stop as we visited Mesa Verde and the Durango railroad. We loved our trail ride and enjoyed the wildlife as well including deer, elk, chipmunks, various birds, etc. We also explored in the nearby area and found a gorgeous hike just 4 miles down the road. Utilized the canoe, fished and swam in the lake as well. Very versatile and relaxing. Our teenagers also enjoyed hanging out in the lodge to play pool, fusball and access the internet. We loved it and hope to return soon!
