Guestbook comments from the owner

I will always remember a husband telling me that this was the 1st house that his wife didn't unpack her pots and pans because Ravens Nest had it all! Electric skillet for scrambled eggs and pancakes, yes.... tray to carry out morning coffee to the deck, yes...... tea kettle for those who don't drink coffee, yes..... every kind of spice, yes..... Thank you so much for appreciating all the creature comforts that I love to provide my guests..

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time for a getaway with our family from Albuquerque to Pagosa Springs. We have stayed at Paula's Raven's Nest both times and have enjoyed it very much. The accommodations are rustic and comfortable with all the basic amenities (and then some) you could ask for in a mountain cabin. The kitchen is very functional as we use it for breakfast and a couple of dinners during our 4-day stays. We especially like sitting in the living room area with the fireplace and some music while reading a good book. Easy access to canoeing, hiking and getting into town. We'll be back to Raven's Nest again soon. Love the banana bread too. Thanks Paula!!

Extended Family Had a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
Paula,

We would like to thank you for opening your lovely home to families like ours. It was the perfect place for us to "create memories"! Being dispersed across 3 different states makes it very challenging for our whole family (my husband & I, our 4 grown children, & their families) to get together, but Raven's Nest provided a peaceful and very pleasant atmosphere for us to enjoy our time together.

Your attention to detail is simply "above and beyond" and there was nothing that we needed that was not provided. I especially appreciated finding a box of kleenex in EVERY room. That is something I do in my own home and it was just a little extra special touch for me.

Of course everyone LOVED your homemade banana bread and I enjoyed visiting with you the afternoon you brought it over. You are truly "the hostess with the mostess"!

Our stay was more than we could have hoped for and we plan to return to Raven's Nest when we visit the Pagosa Springs area!

Sincerely,
A Very Satisfied Family

PS Here's a list of what we loved most about the home: the lighting outside after dark (no tripping because areas were not lit), the front entrance "mud" room (great to "dump" all the gear), the TV being in a separate room, the lovely deck, the swing on the deck, the beautiful flowers, your kind and gracious hospitality!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at several VRBO homes in Pagosa Springs over the years; Ravens Nest was the most welcoming and homey. Our group arrived from 3 different states for the Parelli Summit. No one knew everyone else. This was the perfect recluse from a hectic day where we could gather on the porch to get to know one another or could disperse to our own private areas. The 11 year old son of one couple and his dad enjoyed recovering from our long drive from Washington by canoeing around the lake. They loved it. We only regret that our busy schedule prevented us from meeting Paula and thanking her personally.

Lovely home near lake.

  • 5 of 5
Our family of eight spent the Labor Day weekend at The Ravens Nest along with two dogs. The home was immaculate, spacious, completely stocked and very comfortable. The arrangement of the bedrooms allow for privacy for those nap times. Loved our time visiting on the wrap around deck, watching the wildlife and taking walks to the lake. We did not make use of the canoe, but well within walking distance. The location is perfect for fishing, hiking, taking a drive into mountains or into town for a little shopping. Paula is a joy to work with, and she arrives with her delicious banana bread for a quick hello & to see if there are any needs. Would love to return again in the near future.

Very Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just spent a very relaxing stay at Ravens Nest in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The weather was wonderful compared to the end of summer heat of Texas. The house was very comfortable and felt like home. The house is equipped with just about anything you might need to make your visit an enjoyable one. The layout of the house gives plenty of space for family time yet has separate areas that everyone can find their own space. The subdivision is lovely with large trees and lots of wildlife. The owner is your ideal owner who has everything in order for your stay. We will definitely be going back to Ravens Nest!

Perfect family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
The Raven's Nest was the absolute perfect place for our family vacation! With 5 children ages 10-23, there is not a better place we could have stayed. The Raven's Nest has the perfect set-up for everyone to have their own space when they need it and then lots of places for all of us to be together.
The house is very well stocked and spacious. The kids loved the bunk room and movie room. The wrap around deck was a great place to have coffee in the morning and to relax in the evening. We wouldn't have changed one thing about the Raven's Nest.
Some of the things we enjoyed in Pagosa Springs were floating through town on the river and horseback riding. Also a short drive to Durango was well worth it for the train ride to Silverton....this is highly recommended for all ages!
Paula was the perfect host and was so helpful in helping us choose some of our activities. We would LOVE to return to the Raven's Nest someday!
