We lived in Pagosa for a few years to get away from the hectic pace of life in Dallas, TX. Prior to moving, we had taken many trips up to Pagosa over the years and fell in love with it. It's easy to see why they call it God's Country. Each season has its own beauty. Not to mention all of the fantastic outdoor activities: skiing, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, hunting, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, kayaking, rafting, fishing...shall I go on?
Once my son was born, we decided to head back to Texas to be closer to family. I decided to keep our home in Pagosa and turn it into a retreat for other families to enjoy. My family still goes up to the Pagosa Mountain Retreat about 4-5 times per year. We try to enjoy a stint of each season. We hope you will as well.
We chose to buy a home in Pagosa Springs as it was, and still is, the most beautiful place we have ever seen. Being on top of the Continental Divide as the wildflowers are blooming in July is truly one of the most breath-taking experiences.
Pagosa is the best secret out there. Wolf Creek literally gets the most snow in Colorado each year and offers the best skiing/boarding conditions anywhere in the state. Check out the parking lot next time you are there and you will see a lot of CO plates. People drive from Denver when Wolf Creek gets a big snow. The weather patterns moving moisture up from the Baja into the San Juans creates the best conditions for snowfall. Durango Mountain Resort and Monarch are just a short drive away. The Weminuche Wilderness is the largest in the state and offers prestine forest to explore and numerous opportunities for seeing wildlife. Ten 14ers are within a few hours drive for the peek-bagging enthusiast. The gold medal waters fo the San Juan, Rio Grande, Animas and Piedra Rivers offer the best trout fishing around.
We are lucky to be situated right on the San Juan National Forest border. You can walk out the front door and literally be standing in the forest in less than a minute. The Pagosa Mountain Retreat sits across from Dutton Canyon and backs to Martinez Canyon. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing are great activities in the winter and hiking for miles in the summer. Bears, elk, deer, coyotes, turkeys all migrate up and down the canyons. Not unusual at all to see elk and deer in the front yard.
The mountain views off the decks are fantastic. Clear views of the Continental Divide along the San Juans'East Range. The private decks from the upstairs bedrooms are great for drinking coffee and watching the sun rise over the mountains to start a new day of adventure.
Best part is you may see 5 cars go by over a week's time. The neighborhood of Twin Creek Village is less than 5 minutes to everything, but still out where it's so quiet and peaceful. The stars at night on a clear evening go on forever. No sirens or city lights here...
