We had issues with the Hot water, but both the property manager and the owners worked hard to address the issue. Overall we were happy with the stay! Beautiful area!
We love this cabin!!! Very relaxing and comfortable. Kitchen very well stocked for all your needs. Beautiful views with coffee and book on the deck in the afternoons. Lots of games and great WiFi. We will definitely come back.
We loved this cabin. The view is beautiful. It was well furnished. It has all the amenities we needed. We will definitely use it again. We give it 5 stars.
Thanks Jamie :)
This was a cozy, beautiful & relaxing place to stay. The mountain & lake views are great! I loved seeing the deer eating below us while standing on the deck. We stayed for 5 days & nights. It’s close to Durango and there are so many fun things to do. The hiking trails are awesome! We rented a canoe on day - that was amazing. At this cabin is a fairy garden - it can be hours of fun it was so beautiful and I love the outside lights. Beds were comfortable! Pura Vita, a restaurant near the cabin, within walking distance had a live band twice the week we were there. It was very good! I will definetly stay here at “The Better House” cabin again! It was just what I needed in a cabin rental and a whole lot more!!
This cabin was quaint and cozy! No need to bring anything; this cabin has it all! We enjoyed every morning sitting on the deck drinking our coffee and enjoying the view of the Pine Trees and Vallecito Lake.
Located in the perfect place to go and visit Pagosa Springs, Durango, Silverton/Durango Train Ride and Mesa Verde.
If you want to relax and recharge your battery; this is the place to stay!
The owners were very responsive and accommodating; which was very much appreciated. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return!
This is the third year I have stayed at this cabin. It has all the comforts of home. We love that it is on the lake and just off the road. The outdoor patio is a favorite spot to eat breakfast and dinner. Each year it gets better and better. Cannot wait to go back.

Home is listed as not pet friendly and this was the reason I chose it, as my daughter is highly allergic to cats and dogs. The home was covered in pet hair. Carpets, blankets, and couches were covered in pet hair. House was damp smelling and had not been dusted in quite some time, as there were many spiderwebs. Refridgerator had expired food in it and mice deterrent visibly on the kitchen window sill. Yuck!
We are sorry to see this guest did not enjoy their stay. The home has just been opened up for the summer, and we sincerely apologize it was not better prepared. Housekeeping is doing a deep clean of the home, and we have refunded our guest for the lack of cleanliness. Thank you!
