Our ranch is uniquely located on 45 acres at the end of Cabezon Canyon, beautifully situated with a view of Chimney Rock and the San Juan mountains. There is a small year-round creek and you will most likely see all sorts of wildlife such as deer, elk, bobcats, wild turkey, coyotes, even bears - all dependent on which season of the year you come to vacation.

There is ample room for you to bring your horses and parking for your trailer. We have fenced pasture and run-in stalls for your horses, including hay and water for an additional fee. You can ride on our land, venture into National Forest, or trailer your horses to numerous nearby riding trails into the millions of acres of National Forest surrounding the Pagosa area. The Parelli Natural Horsemanship Center is only a 20 min. drive north. Navajo Lake is a 20 min. drive south if you want to boat, fish or swim. World class fishing on the Piedra River or the San Juan River is also minutes away.

The town of Pagosa Springs, 25 minutes away, has shopping, restaurants, an historic theatre, a museum, and the famous Hot Springs and Spa located on the San Juan River. In every season there is something fun to do in our area - fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, horse-back riding, river rafting, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing - the list goes on! Everything is within five to 30 minutes away. Wolf Creek Ski Resort is approx. 50 miles to the east and Durango Mtn. Resort is approx. 60 miles to the west.

About Anne Tomforde

My husband and I purchased our ranch in 1999 and lived there for 5 years before his job moved us elsewhere. We ran a small horse boarding business in the early days and love keeping horses to this day. We appreciate our unique land, its privacy, and all the wildlife....it is our dream to retire here someday!

THE ULTIMATE COLORADO VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start! The home was exceptional in all aspects! Clean, spacious, well stocked and so very cozy! The location afforded tremendous privacy and the opportunity to truly relax and enjoy our vacation without worrying about the children bothering anyone by with their extreme exuberance! We love the outdoors and this is where the home excels..National Forest and wildlife in abundance..I have had good experiences with all my previous vacation rentals but nothing compares to this home! By the way, Anne Tomforde is expetionally nice and a pleasure to work with and Chuck, the ranch foreman so to speak, is great and very helpful! We liked him enough to ask him to share our final meal at the home with us! You can't go wrong with this property; dont be put off by the 25 minute drive to Pagosa, the setting and privacy more than compensate for that and it makes the Durango area much more convenient! In the end..I can tell you this was one of the most special weeks that my family has ever spent together!

Great place for peace & quiet

Great place for peace & quiet

We stayed at the ranch for a week in mid July and had a wonderful time. There were 5 adults, a 3 year old and 2 dogs in our group. The place was easily large enough for all and was very well equipped for the cooks, which is not all that ordinary for a rental. We enjoyed going to Chimney Rock National Monument (not to be missed if you have any interest in history or archeology) and while the weather was hot (for CO), it was still a very pleasant stay. The ranch foreman couple were helpful and very pleasant. My 3 year old grandson loved trying to feed the horse in the meadow. The turkeys wandering through the yard or at least nearby every day also were a treat. Love Pagosa Springs which is in my opinion better than Durango- less crowded, but similar in interest. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

MOST FAVORITE TRANQUIL VACATION EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent our Spring Break at this most beautiful ranch home and hated to leave! It was a home away from home...very peaceful, home is so cozy and inviting. It is more amazing than the pictures, we arrived just in time to enjoy fresh snow and it lasted a few days so that we did some awesome sledding at the property, snowball fights and lovely winter scenery walks with our two dogs. Our dogs were in doggie heaven with so much space to run and explore...they had a blast! We were also welcomed by lighted and cozy warm home....and delicious homemade cinnamon rolls made by the ranch caretaker's wife, Tammy. Bill and Tammy were so nice. We enjoyed so many fun activities in Pagosa Springs, Wolf Creek, Durango. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our family vacation. We feel very blessed to find this rental home, visited with the owner...Anne several times and she is wonderful and so helpful. We will definitely go back again and highly recommend this amazing place to everyone. Thank you, Anne and family for sharing your home with our family. It was such a blessing! If you renters want a private, peaceful location for a get away, this is the BEST mountain retreat to choose.
Sincerely, The Merritt family...and pets (Max n Smokey)

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two dogs had a fantastic stay at this mountain retreat. The setting is in a beautiful and private valley near Chimney Rock. Our dogs loved roaming in the pasture with the horses after overcoming their initial fear. There are so many wonderful hiking trails nearby as well as the National Forest right there at the house. The house was furnished with everything and more you could want, extremely thoughtful touches. You really can't go wrong staying here. We hope to return soon.

Perfect cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5
When can I go back?

I just loved this cabin. I stayed for a week at the end of February with my boyfriend and our dogs and it was the best vacation I've ever been on. The house is very well furnished, homey, and very comfortable. We had so much room we couldn't find our stuff most of the time. The wood burning stove kept us cozy when we didn't want to use the heater, and the kitchen had everything we needed besides the food. Coffee maker and grinder!

On the property we went for walks with the dogs, went snowshoeing up the hills, and did cross country skiing in the 5 ft deep snow in the large open pastures. At Wolf Creek we had amazing powder skiing days, followed afterwards by a trip to "The Springs" hot springs in Pagosa, where we ended up every afternoon/evening.

4 wheel drive recommended in winter.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Remote, beautiful, just as described (maybe a bit better)!. got a chance for a little horseback lesson/ride from Bill, the ranch manager and awesome horseman. Taught me a lot, and had a beautiful ride. I would come back here if i get the chance. Anne, owner, was very nice and responsive to a zillion questions I had. Even saw a bear cub!
Lots of room for the dogs to run, great access to USFS land for exploration.

We keep a couple of plastic sleds and saucers for winter time sledding in the snow. We have great sledding hills!
