Dog-friendly cabin w/ private hot tub & yard - ideal for hiking & skiing

Experience unforgettable outdoor adventures at this two-bedroom South Fork home, a dog-friendly log cabin with a private hot tub, an enclosed yard with a gas grill, and an unbeatable location for hiking, skiing, fishing, and kayaking in Southwest Colorado.

You'll find this 850-square-foot cabin at the Foothills Lodge and Cabins in South Fork, a hub for all-seasons recreation at the confluence of the Rio Grande and South Fork Rivers. Ski and snowboard on the slopes of Wolf Creek Ski Area 19 miles south, take easy day trips into Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve 66 miles east, and spend your days hiking, horseback riding, and snowshoeing in nearly two million acres of national forest land and the Weminuche Wilderness.

Whether you're planning to hike the Continental Divide Trail or kayak one of the nearby rivers, you'll come home to comfortable furnishings, free WiFi, and a fireplace to warm your toes. Take soothing dips in the private, six-person hot tub, let your dog stretch his legs in the enclosed yard (please note that a nightly pet fee applies), and flip steaks on the gas grill for dinner at the picnic table. Back inside, you can whip up buttered popcorn and hot cocoa in the kitchen and gather around one of the two flatscreen TVs for movie night with your loved ones.

Come ski, hike, and explore to your heart's content - discover the magic of Southwest Colorado at this South Fork cabin!

Clean, perfect size, private. Perfect location where it’s not too crowded and just a few gorgeous miles from a number of great activities. Definitely will be back.

The cabin was super clean and spacious. The beds were very comfy, and we appreciated all of the little "extras" that we didn't expect! We would definitely stay again!
Larry D. Jul 2019
Great cabin with private yard. Unit does have some deferred maintenance. Fence badly needs staining. I was also surprised that there was no hair dryer. Guests should be informed to bring one.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, Larry! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and we can certainly inspect the fencing for any areas in need of additional attention. A detailed list of all appliances and amenities you can expect in the home is included in your check-in details. We encourage guests to plan for any additional needs. Thank you for being a great guest!

The cabin was very clean and cute. My kids and I felt comfortable and had enough room.

I work in the San Luis Valley and my girl fiancé comes to visit twice a month and we love the rustic, quiet cabin stay's in South Fork. Hot tub in yard is very relaxing, clean, but the cover is weathered and worn so it needs attention or replacement. We'll definitely be back!
Manager response:
It was an absolute pleasure to host such a special time, Steven. We are glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet at this cabin, and also took advantage of the inviting hot tub! We value your feedback, and will look into any due replacement needed for the hot tub top cover. Please visit with us again for your next romantic getaway!

I have stayed here before and always had a good experience. This was the first time I stayed in the elk cabin and I must say it's the best one so far. Private hot tub and grill with 6 ft privacy fence. This will be the cabin I look for every time

Great stay in Elk Cabin (CabinE)! Beds were comfy with memory foam on all beds. I thought the blankets wouldn’t be warm enough but they were plus the stove heater warmed the cabin very well. The bathroom door was difficult to open. We all got stuck the first time...and a few other times but managed to deal with it humorously. Small, younger kids wouldn’t be able to get out. Definately needs to be fixed. One dresser drawer handle was broken and drawer was hard to open but again, doable with care. Plenty of towels, WiFi was great, private hot tub was relaxing after a cold day of skiing. Cleaning staff were very nice and helpful.
Manager response:
Hi Jason, Thank you for your feedback! We will let the Local Manager know about the broken handle so that we can make it easier for guest use.

All around great stay. Just need a little work on doors and locks. Perfect for the price
Annette S. Nov 2018
Great beds...could have used more blankets as we liked to shut the bedroom doors. Gas heater in the living room worked well. Private hot tub was great. Maintenance folks took care of any small issues we ran into.

Loved the jacuzzi, quiet and scenery.
Debbie M. Oct 2018

Clean, plenty of room, conveniently located, quiet, off-street parking, no stairs, good shower.

Kitchen not adequately furnished for cooking whole meals for family.

It was a wonderful stay. Clean, quiet and peaceful. This was our second stay there and it didn't disappoint.

Clean room and golf great course.
Lannie H. Aug 2018
Coming from Florida we appreciated the cool dry weather. Areas of interest were within easy drives. We seemed to be drawn back to Creede over and over. The cabin is rustic but we knew it in advance. Overall we enjoyed the cabin and the trip.
Danna B. Jul 2018
The beds were very comfortable and it was nice and roomy. Loved the jet pool and the private hot tub. Would have been a 5 star except it was very hot and stuff. Went to buy fans and then found some in the closest later. Just be prepared that there is not AC. Once we got the fans running it helped considerable and it cooled off in the middle of the night.

I was nervous about renting a cabin from a outside company.
When I called to tell them we had 3 xtra Grandkids ,they were quick to call the owner and get it approved! It was easy to check in and the cabin was nice and clean. We enjoyed the hot tub and the privacy fence for our little dog. When we accidentally turned off the heat.,we called the local maintenance guy and he quickly talked us thru reprogramming it. I guess the only thing that kept me from giving this a 5 star was the housekeeping, we never saw them and they did not come in at all. Luckily we had plenty of towels. We stay in the Southfork area almost every year and this is a place we will come back to.

We loved this cabin! Perfect size and loved having the fenced in yard since we brought our dog. Definitely would recommend!
Alan P. Jun 2018
The cabin was clean and cozy. It was also roomy. The private hot tub was a nice touch as well. The location is beautiful, nestled up against the mountains. The site amenities are good too. Loved the personal outdoor grill provided as well.

We had a great time memorial weekend in South Fork. Our cabin was clean welcoming and well stocked. My kids borrowed a few movies that they enjoyed. Our only problem was the place was pretty much self serve, we never saw any staff so we weren't able to use the pool and we ran out of propane for our grill. We just borrowed a tank from one of the community grills. My kids loved the hot tub! We will definitely stay at the elk cabin during our next visit to South Fork!
John S. Mar 2018
Always a great stay! Can't beat it!
Steven M. Mar 2018
It was my 3rd time at the Foothills Lodge and first time in the Elk Cabin. Great place for two guys on a ski trip. Just about perfect. Just pave the parking lot and spruce up the bathroom fixtures a bit and we get to 5 stars.

We really enjoyed our stay at cabin E. Great location with a grocery and a liquor store just next to this location, which makes this very convinient. Loved the fact that they provided all kitchen supplies and that big bowl was a plus. The hot tub was amazing.

Also, loved the fact that the cabin was fenced so it’s good if you have a pet or simply like more privacy. The bedrooms do get a little cold at night so a few extra blankets or a small heater would be nice. Also, wish the front desk was a little more friendly. For a moment we didn’t feel very welcoming, but overall, great cabin. We would definitely stay here again.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not have a friendlier experience with the front desk. It is mostly self-serve as all items needed for replenishment are available for guests to take when needed. There are also spare blankets in each bedroom closet. Thank you!

When winter skiing, a hot tub is a must and it was very nice. The cabin was great with 2 rooms and 3 beds. The living room has two nice comfortable couches and a large TV with satellite service. Kitchen is small but had ample utensils and dishware for us (only 2 of us because the flu knocked out our other 2). The only item we lacked was salt and pepper... might bring some if it's that important to you. Location is great, staff was friendly and helpful, overall I would recommend and I'm sure we'll be back.
