We stayed here at Pine River Lodge. Owned and operated by the sweetest folks, known locally as Ermalee and "the Sister's". It's 22 miles from Durango on the oh so beautiful Vallecito Lake. They have lots of cabins from tiny one room log cabins like the one we stayed in on up to really large newer homes sleeping up to 11 people. The cabins are located both above the road and below the road on the lake.
This is the sweet little one room cabin we chose.
View from in table in front of the cabin.
I would really love to get the rest of our family up here for a Family Vacation / Reunion. It's perfect in that they have large cabins 2 or more families could share as well as many smaller one's if a private cabin is preferred.
Some pictures of their other cabins
I love this log cabin with the great wrap-around porch.

#1 Not much to look at from the outside but....
It sits above the road close to the lodge on the right but with views of the lake to the left.
The interior surprised me.
|2 Queen rooms on main floor, rather plain loft above has 2 full beds on one side and 1 full, 1 twin on the other side of ladder|
|2 tables in open kitchen|
Cabins #3 - 9 Are identical compact cabins near the lodge with two queen bedrooms and a kitchen/dining combo with a couch. These are simple and more rustic cabins. Nice views of the lake.
#24 2 Queen bedrooms
