We extended our Pagosa ski trip and needed to find accommodations for just one night. This property was recommended and they couldn't have been nicer. We opted for the king room that had a couch (pull-out?) on the second floor. Big TV! They offer a good breakfast in their dining room that is connected to the property office, which looks...

We only spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were good size, clean, comfortable and affordable. The reception area and breakfast room were very cozy and had a mountain feel. The lodge is outside of town which worked out well since the price was more affordable. It only took about 5 minutes to get into the downtown...

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Lodge. We enjoyed a neat cabin, delicious breakfast at the main lodge dining area, and all with great hospitality. If back in the area, we would definitely stay there again.

We fell in love with High Country Lodge at first sight! The HCL was perfect for us. We actually drove all the way thru Pagosa Srpings but HCL was the "Soul Soother" we were looking for so we turn around and went back. We so enjoyed the peaceful surroundings of the mountains. The sweet little cabin was very clean &...

We only stayed one night here, but it was wonderful. The place is surrounded by beautiful mountains. We stayed in the lodge, as opposed to the cabins, and our room was very comfy with cozy blankets that reminded me of a true mountain experience. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the glorious view as we sipped our wine...

It sounds like you had the real Colorado experience while here. It's not so much about running around frantically trying to meet a schedule of tourist attractions-it's about enjoying our beautiful mountains and all they have to offer, like a wonderful 10 course meal, slowly savoring everything and turning it into a special memory. We are happy to have been...

We came into Pagosa Springs after a long day on the road and no hotel reservations. Town seemed so busy and we passed through only to find this beautiful place on the edge of town.
