“Beautiful location with friendly people”
Reviewed 12 July 2009

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!

Very nice people, but the place was a little more ramshackle than you can tell from the brochure or website. The dock was a dangerous piece of junk. The grills were dangerous pieces of junk. No microwave. No soap or shampoo. Several lights didn't work. Furniture and kitchen stuff seemed to be straight from a Goodwill store or garage sale. Not real clean. There's still a lot of deforestation and bare spots in the area from a fire in 2002. A family of raccoons moved into the attic of our cabin while we were there, and the staff didn't seem too concerned.
On the plus side the beds were firm and seemed new. The site is RIGHT on the lake, which is clean and pretty. The porch was great. It's easy to find and easy to get to.
I just wouldn't go back, I think.

  • Liked — The location on the lake.
  • Disliked — Rundown, poorly maintained, not too clean.
