Please feel free to join the Facebook page for Cuchara Cabin & Condo Rentals. We publish local news and weather almost daily. Once the summer (2013) season is upon us, we will begin regular updates of deals, cancellations, area activities/events and opportunities for our guests. Just one more attempt to ensure you, our guest, can find the property that is perfect for your needs.
What to Watch
The Bear's Den went under new ownership at the end of the 2012 season. I'm seeing a ton of work getting done over there and a strong rumor that we can expect a very nice mini-golf course to return! There is a new road in the village (chip seal) that will combat the dust, ditches after rainstorms and getting mud on your feet. The Cuchara buisness owners hope this will make every storefront more easily accessible for everyone. The Cuchara Village came alive with EVERY storefront open for 2011. We're happy to welcome "Brewed Awakenings Coffee Shop" and "Pieces of My Heart" gift shop. The Timbers WILL BE OPEN and the Creekside Cafe is also returning.
The Cuchara business owners also started a "Merchant's Association" in 2010 to have everybody working together for the best guest experience possible. We advertise as a group and have many special events being planned for an incredible Cuchara summer!
Every year this company is faced with changing needs of our customers. We do our best to adjust the company's focus based on requests and the needs of our guests. We also have to look at patterns and ensure we're protecting the properties. What one guest does can affect the next guest's stay, even to the simplest detail of adjusting the temperature inside the refrigerator. We will be revising our POLICIES to further clarify what is expected of our guests. We want people to enjoy themselves, but we also need guests respecting the properties and following our guidelines to ensure everybody has the best experience possible.
Some properties are under new ownership and/or undergoing remodels.
The River Paradise has installed new beds, placing a Queen in the Master bedroom, Full in the Second bedroom and 2 Twins in the Third bedroom
The Lazy Log is giving the downstairs a long awaited face-lift. The new flooring is in and expect the downstairs bedroom to take on a whole new look. There are new beds and mattresses going in as well!
The Cuchara Pines (formerly Casias) has upgraded the master bath to provide a shower and tub, there are new decks on the front and back of the cabin, new windows and plenty more!
The Nelson Cabin has been fully redecorated inside with new furniture and new beds. The deck has been upgraded along with a fenced dog run for those with pets. The exterior is getting a make-over as well.
Repeat guests may have noticed that I have not raised our prices in several years. Many may realize that our expenses have sky-rocketed with the current economic state. We've been offering our 2005 prices with 2012/2013 expenses. This is a courtesy to keep Cuchara Vacation Rentals as affordable as possible. I will need to adjust some pricing, though. Some properties cost more to maintain and many of our services are getting very expensive to provide. This means you may see some properties raise their price approximately 5% ($5-$10/night). As always, I honor the price advertised at the time of your request, meaning if you book early the price WILL NOT go up.
I have launched a campaign to gain additional properties, as we've been turning away too much business in years past! Cuchara Homeowners are encouraged to contact us if there is any interest in bringing your property into the program.
Thank You, Edward N. Matthes Cuchara Cabin & Condo Rentals, Owner
