What an amazing value! We booked this at the last minute en route to Durango because we didn't want to drive over Wolf Creek pass in the dark on the night before Thanksgiving. We were nervous because we had food to prepare and not sure about how we would get it done without a kitchen. This place had a full... More

Perfect location. We visited the ski lodge, Creed, the silver thread biway is beautiful and is right in front of the lodge.

We were just passing through South Fork and needed a place to stay. We had our own, private cabin that was pet friendly with a very reasonable pet fee. The pillow top king size bed was very comfortable and all of our accommodations was perfect. The price for this stay very affordable! We were a late check in, but Ronnie... More

This place was clean and low cost. Not a 4 star and is not intended that way, but very good for what it is. I'll be back the next time. The bed was very comfortable. but I have the same beef as just about any hotel I have been in: the sheets are too short. Still easily rates a 5.... More

Owners and staff are great. With the exception of a shower handle and shower cartridge needing repair, the accommodations are great. Comfortable beds, nice, furnished kitchen and grill at each cabin. The location is conveniently and centrally located to allow for access to recreation areas. We'll definitely being staying there again.

If you are looking for a housekeeping unit in a spectacular, but remote region, this place rates five stars. If, however, you are looking for a place with more polish and flair, and good dining options (ahem, my wife), then this will be your worst nightmare.

Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate your input and we fully recognize that South Fork is not for everyone. South Fork is "rustic" and "remote."

I wanted to give this place the full five stars, but had to give them 4.49999 stars due to the small size of the room and ... my usual hotel/motel complaint ... noisy neighbors.

Thank you for your review. We only offer one small lodge room, at a very low rate, and this must be where you stayed. If you let us know you prefer more room, we have it for you.
