Is there good Colorado Trout Fishing?

Come fish Blue & Bear Lakes, North or Monument Lakes, or the Wahatoya Lakes all excellent fishing whether you are a serious fly fisherman or fishing with your friends and family. These lakes have ample casting room and the banks aren’t steep. Get ready to catch some fish!

Where’s the best place in Colorado to see bears, birds and other wildlife?

Cuchara is one of the best kept secrets in Colorado. Our valley remains wonderful and wild, and so does our wildlife.

Wildlife watching is one of Cuchara’s favorite pastimes. With wildlife such as deer, elk, and black bear roaming the valley’s pristine forests, and bald eagles and red-tailed hawks soaring in the skies near lakes and rivers, it’s easy to see why.

Grab your binoculars and camera and start driving up the Scenic Highway of Legends or any other road and chances are, you’ll see some kind of wildlife.
Or, take a hike thru the forest to get a close up view of the wildlife. You may see squirrels and chipmunks, rabbits, foxes, raccoons, skunks, beavers, wild turkey, deer, elk, bobcats, mountain lions, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, or the occasional black bear.

Our forests are home to many species of birds, including Steller Jays, Magpies, Chickadees, Hummingbirds, Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Grosbeaks, Blackbirds, Rosy-Finches, Sparrows, Hawks, Eagles, and many more. Every spring and fall we have a large migration of birds that stop over on their way to summer breeding grounds or on their way to their winter homes.

It’s important to always keep a safe distance from the animals. Remembering never to feed, pet, chase or harass them.

Can Cuchara Vacation Rentals provide lodging for large groups or family reunions?

We have a variety of properties large and small. Many of them are within close proximity of each other so that your family or group can be together, but at the same time have their own privacy and family time. We will work with you to accommodate your group so that you are comfortable and have a wonderful place to stay. 

Does Cuchara Vacation Rentals offer discounts for extended stays?

Yes, we do. Stay 7 nights for the price of 6 nights. Other discounts may be available for longer stays.
