We are a family of three with an extended family of siblings totaling 18. The ranch is a perfect place for our families to gather and our kids to enjoy each other bonding as cousins. Marie and I enjoy all the seasons of Pagosa Springs and our daughter Lilly would rather be at the ranch than anywhere else we travel. We hope you enjoy our property as much as we do!
Julie Latiolais purchased this lodge in 2009
Pagosa Springs is the ultimate winter or summer playground. The amenities Pagosa offers in a mountain enviroment are multi-facted and unique. Whether you are sking, snow mobiling or fishing a mountain stream you can do it all from this perfectly positioned breathtakingly beautiful location. A truly hard to find home that has it all---we found after vacationing in Colorado for ten plus years!
The home is 10 minutes away from downtown Pagosa and the world famous Hot Springs, 20 minutes from Wolf Creek Ski lodge and everything inbetween. The property is set apart from the world surrounded in a Paradise all of its own...yet minutes from any activity you would want to do.A fenced property creates a safe place for your children to play with the river and mountains within walking distance from your house. You can ride your horse out the back gate of your own back yard and go to the top of a Mountain if you choose to do so. We can hunt out the back door and fish out the front.
This was our second visit to Paradise Ranch, and we can't wait to go back!
The rooms were spacious, and the beds comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were modern, well-appointed and well-equipped. Although we go to Paradise Ranch to get away from TV and the computer, out teenage daughter informed us that there are many, many satellite TV channels to choose from, as well as a wide selection of DVDs. We found the property to be very clean and well-maintained. The photos don't do it justice! In short: all the comforts of home!
In addition to all the modern comforts and conveniences, there was a welcome rustic feeling to the property. You can walk to the river in minutes for fishing, and there is direct national forest access from the property. It is far enough away from town to provide a feeling of seclusion, but close enough to enjoy the hot springs, shopping and other activities. We were only about 40 minutes away from Wolf Creek Ski area. The scenery was spectacular, with views of the mountains by day, and the Milky Way by night, unobstructed by city lights. (For you astronomy nerds, on a moonless night, the Andromeda galaxy is naked-eye visible!) We also saw numerous elk and deer on the property nearly every day, including the largest elk we've ever seen one evening as we were pulling back onto the property from a visit to Pagosa Springs.
We would recommend this property for friends and relatives, and we plan to return ourselves!
Our family had a wonderful stay at Paradise Ranch. The home and property are beautiful and the surroundings are so serene. The house is beautifully decorated; warm and inviting. The property is very private and provides the perfect Colorado experience. Conveniently located to town, scenic drives, beautiful day hikes including several waterfalls. Wonderful. Thank you!
This is a bit of Paradise!!! Beautiful home and beautiful scenery. This is a home away from home. Far enough out that you have serenity but close enough to attractions to keep everyone happy. Love it and definitely will be back :)
We absolutely loved the incredible serenity of the location (backs up to a national forest), and the Wolf Creek Ski Area. Our children had hours of fun playing with the toys in the playroom. We felt cramped for sleeping space (party of 17). I don't think the description of the property prepared me for that. During the winter months, I'd not recommend it for groups over 13 people. The house is older and needs basic maintenance, which I've detailed with the owner. We enjoyed the large gathering areas for our group size, but the house doesn't have views. It really feels like a dark cabin and is not thoroughly heated or lighted, so it doesn't feel as cozy as we had hoped from the pictures.
the house was great, it was all the owner said it would be. Yes i would recommend the home to a friend or relative in a heart beat. They also made sure we had enternet.
I have stayed in 32 vacation homes over the years and this stay at Paradise Ranch makes our 5th stay at the property! This home is the perfect getaway for anyone who needs to feel the stress melt away!!! The setting is set back on a hill that has national forest around it, and is above a gorgeous stretch of river that is all your own. It gives you the feeling that you are all alone, even though the highway is just down the road. The master bed is our favorite feature and is one of the main reasons we return to the home. Our bodies are so rested after just one night because the mattress is very luxurious, and expensive (we looked it up to purchase it)!!! Your body sinks in and you never want to get out. Our kids love the property because they have their own play room plus the beautiful fenced in back yard to play in. It has been a CALM, PEACEFUL, SANCTUARY for our family to enjoy. The rustic feel is exactly what you hope for in a Colorado cabin, but the renovations that have obviously been done to the home makes this home as comfortable as a resort. It feels like your very own ski lodge! It has great big social areas in the home and is perfect for larger parties. I am a worship pastor and the truth is I sense the presence of God in the home and that is why I feel peace while I am there. It gives me the rest I need to go face the world again! We are ready to book our 6th trip now! Book this house, you will not regret it!
