Waterfront cabin on Vallecito Lake with WiFi, large deck, & lake views

Find the perfect spot to disconnect, unwind, and relax at this peaceful, waterfront cabin on the shores of Vallecito Lake. Rustic and cozy, this home makes a tranquil home base for your hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and boating adventures in Southwest Colorado.

This log cabin sits among the evergreens on a hill just above the lake, with a spacious deck overlooking the water and the surrounding snow-capped peaks. The interior is incredibly atmospheric, with wood paneling adorning the walls and a living space that brings together the living room, the kitchen, and the dining room. Before a day of adventure, you can flip pancakes on the stove in the kitchen, sip your morning coffee at the two-person breakfast bar, and sit down to eat with your loved ones at the dining table for four or outside on the deck.

This lakefront cabin is located 200 feet above the lake, in a peaceful, private area on the southwestern shores of Vallecito Lake, with much of the surrounding land part of San Juan National Forest and the Weminuche Wilderness. It's a great spot for mountain biking, ATVing, and hiking, whether you choose one of the trails tracing the lakeshore or the Lake Eileen, Vallecito, or Pine River Trail within a few miles' drive. You'll also be less than a mile from the Vallecito Marina, where you can rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, pontoon boats, fishing boats, and fishing gear.

This was a perfect little cabin for a relaxing getaway that we needed so badly. The location was so nice and quiet. The ease of check in and check out was very much appreciated. The bedrooms are tiny, but we’re fine for us. The view from the cabin was amazing and the fall colors were like icing on the cake!

Cabin is cute, clean, and comfortable. The porch overlooking the lake is amazing. Lots of good hiking just down the road, and a restaurant 5 minutes away. We appreciated the Roku when we felt like veg-ing with Netflix after a day outside. We'll be back!

It’s a very small cabin but extremely clean which is nice. The porch and patio are really nice with great views ! The reason why I’m giving it four stars is because the furniture is very uncomfortable. We stayed for a week and it was hard to get comfortable when we came back at the end of the day.

Basic, simple, cabin on the lake with a wonderful deck. Not opulent in any way, but embrace what it its and truly....,. Paradise. Clear instructions from Vacasa. Been coming to this slice of Heaven for close to 20 years, hope to come for 20 more.l

Awesome cabin! It was stocked with everything you could ever need. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake from the back porch every day and evening. We will recommend this cabin and will be back ourselves.

The cabin is so wonderful and comfy! We loved the decor, how kid proofed it feels, and how we had everything we needed! The views of the lake are fantastic, and the deck is great for bird watching. We’ll definitely be back!

First time staying at a cabin, and I don’t regret it at all. I loved this places, really cleaned, beautiful lake view and quiet.

First, I want to acknowledge how lucky I am to even have the privilege to take a mini vacation . That being said it was just an okay stay. I was debating between 3 and 4 stars. The inside of the house was clean, the views were nice and it was easy to book. However, there was nothing that really stood out to me. Nothing that made me think, " I can't wait to book this place again". No personal touches from the owners, no guest book, welcome amenities, etc. It would have been super cool if they provided a canoe or even binoculars to look at wildlife. The cabin was well equipped but smaller than it looks. It was no problem for us but if you are person who may be bigger than us it could be a bit harder. There is maybe a 12" walkway around the bed to the closet and bathroom and some low hanging light fixtures. Overall I think it is just way overpriced for what is offered. If money is no issue it would be nice but I think there are better alternatives.

Thanks for the nice stay.

This place was awesome! Exactly like the pictures. Lake is a 2 minute walk out the door, great views from the deck, fast internet, cozy cabin. Saw a bear one night!
