Pagosa Springs Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Perfect 4 Seasons Retreat For Large Families Or Groups

Lake Forest Lodge sits on a heavily wooded lot with unobstructed views to Lake Forest and the San Juan mountains. We offer a rare 5/4 in-town location, so you'll enjoy easy access to your vacation home on paved roads yet be on a wooded lakefront lot for that total vacation ambiance. Less than five minutes to Pagosa's favorite spots, including the famed Pagosa Brewery and City Market, the best regional grocery store in south central Colorado.

Everything in Lake Forest Lodge is BRAND NEW for the Summer 2014 season. We offer amenities not found in most larger vacation rentals. The master is unusually spacious with a walk-in tiled shower and a huge walk-in closet. The master has views to Lake Forest and easy access to the hot tub on the back deck with robe heaters.

Walk in the front door and be amazed by the massive great room. You'll have plenty of seating for your crowd in front of the 12' entertainment center, which includes a large-screen TV plus plenty of books, movies, games and CDs.The living area has two large comfortable sofas with recliners to rest your legs after hiking or skiing. OR cuddle up in front of the fire on the massive leather cowboy chaise.

On workation? Work if you must in the study in the front of the house with windows overlooking the lake and an unforgettable desk and chair. The study includes high-speed WiFi, a printer and basic office supplies.

The dining room table truly seats 12 for your family banquets plus six at the bar on comfortable armed swivel barstools, so you can seat 18 for big meals. The huge kitchen has every amenity imaginable for whipping up gourmet meals for a crowd up to 20 people. You'll love the elk ceramic dinnerware and lodge flatware!

Your guests will be delighted by the themed guestrooms. The split floorplan offers lots of room to spread out and privacy for larger groups. The master is on one side of the house, Moose Magic and Gone Fishin' bedrooms are on the other side of the downstairs, and the rest of the sleeping accommodations are upstairs. Every bedroom offers lots of closet space and dressers so you can unpack and relax!

Master Bedroom: decorated in an old-fashioned ski theme, from the snowshoe coffee table in the sitting area to the artwork on the wall featuring views of Wolf Creek Pass. You'll enjoy designer bedding and 600-thread-count sheets.

Moose Magic: A downstairs queen room with designer quilt and moose-themed artwork. Moose Magic shares a downstairs bath with the Gone Fishin' bedroom. The room features a large closet, high chest, two night tables and reading lamps.

Gone Fishin': This bedroom features a queen-sized bed with a side window overlooking the lake, a double dresser and mirror, side tables and lamps.

Upstairs: the upstairs has been completely rebuilt in 2014 to add two bedrooms, two designer baths and an upstairs living/gameroom area.

Bear Lair: A great family room offers a queen over queen bunkbed that sleeps four comfortably. It also has an ensuite bathroom with brand new granite countertops and a tiled shower. NOTE: For safety reasons, no small children under 8 in the upper bunk.

Elk Escape: The second upstairs bedroom has a queen over queen bunkbed and close access to the second brand new bathroom upstairs. NOTE: For safety reasons, no small children under 8 in the upper bunk.

Living room/gameroom: This area features a second TV watching area so grown-ups and kids can each have their own entertainment. This room features a TV with DVD and cable access and is furnished with a fun lodge-themed futon that folds into a full bed and two lodge single futons to sleep 4 right outside the upstairs bathroom. NOTE: the single futons are suitable only for children 12 and under.

About Chuck & Sarah Riehm

Our family has been coming to Colorado twice a year since we were first married in 1974--one summer hiking trip and one winter ski trip. The past few years the snow has been very disappointing at other major Colorado ski resorts so we thought we'd try Wolf Creek so booked a trip to Pagosa Springs in March 2013. We remember asking ourselves, 'How good could this ski resort BE with prices so low?' The answer is--GREAT! Chuck is an expert skier who can tackle any run on the mountain and the rest of us are light blue. We found plenty of terrain for all of us at unbelievably low prices for lift tickets and rentals. Plus, we just fell in love with the natural beauty of the place. The fact that you can hike in real wilderness right outside your doorstep is a real draw. Plus, Pagosa offers so many other fun activities from concerts to live theater to the amazing hot springs to horseback riding and rafting.

Chuck & Sarah Riehm purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Chuck & Sarah Riehm chose Pagosa Springs

We had been looking for a lakefront property to call our own for some time now, yet most of the lakes we had looked at in Texas and Oklahoma were fairly sad with the drought situation. We absolutely loved Lake Forest with its natural setting in a pine forest with mountain views.

What makes this lodge unique

Great fishing right out the back door, kayaking or canoeing. Also lots of hiking trails close by. Great in-town location! Just a 20-minute walk to everyone's favorite Pagosa refreshment spot--The Pagosa Brewery.

Wonderful for Family Reunion or a Small Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a family reunion for 20 people including a baby, toddlers, and 20-70 year olds. The house is in a beautiful, peaceful location with a nice view of the lake. Grocery stores, dining, and a recreation center are all 5-10 minutes away. The house was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay! Sara & Chuck purchased a Pack-n-Play crib & a high chair when they heard we were bringing young children. Highly recommend this vacation rental property!!!!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family spent a pleasant week at this well-kept home; we were pleased with all aspects. The upstairs makes a great get-away area for the children, and the main floor is open, allowing for plenty of gathering space and interaction. The kitchen was better equipped that any we have ever enjoyed in a vacation rental, including little touches not commonly seen like an electric grill/griddle, spices,and sharp knives. The house is in a quiet location on the west side of town, yet it has easy access to necessities. Downtown Pagosa is about a ten minute drive. Excellent linens, comfortable beds, and plenty of entertainment options (satellite, wifi, games, etc) complete the package. We prefer to rent directly from owners as we find they are more responsive to needs than are rental agents; Chuck and Sarah were easy to work with, provided all important information, answered questions promptly, and even gave us a welcome call on the day we arrived. We strongly recommend this property for any large family gathering.
