About Owner/Manager

Kass and I are avid outdoorsman. We love spending as much time as possible at our cabin, and enjoy every moment. When not at our home or our cabin, you can find us fishing, hiking, camping, rafting across Colorado.

Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Owner/Manager chose South Central Colorado

Mogote is a true jumping spot to all that Southern Colorado has to offer. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle, that it begs for folks to come and relax.

With ample activities close by throughout the year, there is always something to do. During the warm months, the cabin is a great spot to enjoy the plentiful sunshine while:

-Fishing on miles and miles of both public and private water

-Hiking/Backpacking on endless trails to remote areas of the South San Juan Wilderness

-Hunting (Located in Colorado GMU 81, and 10 minutes from New Mexico unit 52)

-Four Wheeling

During the winter, there is no better place to stay in order to be close to:

-Snowmobiling (Cumbres Pass is ~30 minutes away and Chama, New Mexico is about 45 minutes)

-Cross County Skiing

-Snow Shoeing

What makes this cabin unique

The Conejos River offers miles and miles of public water from the cabin up toward Platoro Reservoir. There are also numerous private water locations which offer unique chances to catch some of the largest rainbow and brown trout in the state. Fly fishing is available at the cabin, by booking a guide only. Please let us know if you intend to fish at the property, so we can ensure availability and booking of your guide.

There are also countless hunting opportunities nearby. Being only 10 minutes from the New Mexico border, this cabin offers a great location for both Colorado and New Mexico hunters.

Other outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy beautiful cycling, hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and more.

Perfect getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for some peace and quiet. We loved every part of this place, from the beautiful scenery, the running river, the outside campfire, the wood-burning stove, the stocked kitchen, etc.

BEAUTIFUL cabin, river...the whole time we were there!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and it's history was beautiful. The river was busy probably because of the rain and/or snow melt...being from West Texas we don't see much of either. Hope to make this a trip we can make every year. Thanks so much for sharing!

Great location....house needs some fix-ups.

  • 3 of 5

PROS - This house is located on a really gorgeous property. My family of 6 spent 4 days/nights here, and we really enjoyed our stay. The weather was amazing - some tiny afternoons showers everyday that cooled everything off - cool mornings and nice nights! The closest towns, Antonito and Alamosa don't really have much to offer though. If you are looking for a cute town nearby to walk around and eat/shop, you need to drive to Salida which is 2 hours away. We did that one day and had a great time!

CONS - House had some problems that were issues for us....might not be a problem for others though. 1.) No dishwasher or disposal. This was hard for me to feed my family of 6. Bring paper plates, cups, and silverware if you plan on eating at the house a bunch. 2.) There were no curtains or blinds on any bedroom windows. We were awake at 6:15 every morning. :( 3.) The washer/dryer needs to be replaced if you want to do laundry. Washer lid doesn't work properly and the dryer knob was completely broken off so I had to drip-dry everything. 4.) Hot water heater would shut off about every 5th shower. Had to be reset. Not a big deal, unless you are already in the shower and your water suddenly goes from hot to freezing. 5.) Tons of mosquitos. Certainly not the owners' fault.....just something to think about. Bring lots of bug repellant if you want to enjoy the covered patio or nice fire pit.

Overall, I really enjoyed my vacation. Just wish the house was a little more accomodating.

Owner's Response: Hi Courtney, Thank you for your input and advice. I will respond to the items that we do have control over. 1. You are correct in that we do not have a dish washer or garbage disposal. We have intentionally tried to keep the cabin as minimalistic as possible, while also creating an amazing vacation location. We will do a better job of ensuring folks are very aware of this on the front end. 2. We have considered blinds, and this is a solid case for possibly adding them. Again, we will make sure folks are aware of this on the front end unless we add them. 3. The washer and drier has been replaced. It was on our radar and your stay was just before we were able to get it installed. 4. We were not aware of the hot water issue until your review. We had a plumber come out yesterday who serviced the on-demand hot water heater. 5. We have updated the check in guide to include the recommendation to bring some mosquito spray. We are sorry to hear you did not find the place accommodating. Hopefully with your feedback others will be more prepared for their stay. I do insure that the vast majority of folks who stay at our cabin truly enjoy their stay, but we are constantly aiming to make this cabin better. Thank you!

Wonderful cabin on the beautiful Conejos River

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderfully special property on the banks of the Conejos River; the owners were very pleasant to work with. The property had everything we needed in the kitchen, and the hot showers after a long day on the river was a great treat. I loved that there was no t.v.; it really was nice to unwind without the distraction. Very well maintained and clean. The property is in Mogote, CO, so it is about ten minutes into Antonito and about thirty minutes to the cutoff to Platoro. The only thing lacking was a grill, but it wasn't an issue for us, a nice-to-have, not a must have here. I would recommend this property for a family, fishing group, or retreat. New property.
