If you want a place where the staff is rude and unprofessional, this is for you. Very unfriendly and unhelpful.And it is right on the highway so the noise throughout the night doesn't really give you a very restful sleep.

We stay at the High Country Lodge whenever we're in Pagosa Springs which is usually each summer. It's a great place to stay--for value, for atmosphere, for location. The rooms are well-maintained, clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Adding to the value is the exceptional breakfast which is included in the price of room. We will continue...

Spent one night here on advice of a friend. First of all it's not as close to the Hotsprings as I was led to believe but close enough. We were able to get discount tickets at the front desk for the basic package at the Hotsprings. Beware if you have cash you'll get the best discount--$4/ticket. Credit card it $2/ticket.... More

Thank you for contacting us. Being located just 2 miles from the hot springs and restaurants has certain advantages, in that it allows us to have 15 acres of space where we can have a large greenbelt with play areas, horseshoe pits, a picnic area with gas grills, and a hiking trail. We are glad you enjoyed many of our... More

Stayed her on a cross country trip from California to Austin. After several days in the desert, the cooler weather was a welcome relief as well as all of the lovely greenspace.

We ran up from Santa Fe to Pagosa to check out a rental property we have scheduled for Christmas, and decided to stay at High Country. We had stayed at their cabins previously, which we enjoyed.

Easy to book the cabin on-line. Very helpful check-in person. Lovely,comfortable, well equipped cabin. Hot tubs clean and well lit. Some traffic noise, but not too bad. Our schedule (and budget) would not have allowed a longer stay.
