About Linda Earnhart

We have vacationed in the Pagosa Springs area for a number of years and it was the fulfillment of a dream to be able to build a house there. We love the area and all that it has to offer, especially it's casual, laid back atmosphere.

Linda Earnhart purchased this house in 2009

Why Linda Earnhart chose Pagosa Springs

The valley and mountain views and the wildlife that come in for the pond were a major selling point. Also the huge greenbelt below us and walking distance to the National Forest were a bonus. We love fishing in the area private lakes, especially Hatcher Lake.

What makes this house unique

Located in Pagosa Lakes close to the only grocery store and popular restaurants and brew pubs Pagosa Lakes has a recreation center for your use (small fee) and access to their private, stocked lakes. Close to the San Juan National Forest with hiking and mountain biking trails. Wolf Creek ski area with the most snow in Colorado is a 40 minute drive away. The town of Durango is only an hour away with it's famous Silverton Train, along with shops and restaurants and air service to major cities.

Wonderful place to stay in Pagosa/Wolf Creek/Durango area!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at this beautiful home! We stayed here with our extended family - 12 people - and had plenty of room. It was HUGE, had plenty of living space, so many places to sleep, plenty of nice bathrooms, and every amenity you could ask for! Our family enjoyed it so much! Great dining areas, huge porches with plenty of outdoor seating, a hot tub, & several living areas made the place relaxing. The basement was a kids' paradise with air hockey, foosball, and ping pong as well as a TV. Direct TV throughout the house, although the TV/sound system was pretty complicated. But, you're in Colorado...who needs to watch TV???? Saw many deer and other animals from the porch. The place is well-stocked & the owners are very helpful/generous with the items in the house. We had a fantastic stay & would love to return!

Owner's Response: Cristi & Jason, we're thrilled you enjoyed the house and I'm sorry the TV/stereo system is so complicated - I think so too and we're working on simplifying it now. We've tried to think of everything that a guest might want. So glad the deer love our property too - they are such fun to watch. We hope to have your return again.

Best Family Ski Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We had a multi-generational group with 14 people and it was plenty spacious for all of us. Beautiful decor, spectacular views, a hot tub and all the amenities made our stay enjoyable in every way. The owner was easy to work with and made our planning stress-free. If we are able to make this an annual event we will be sure to stay at this house again.

Beautiful home for multi-generational gathering

  • 5 of 5
Linda - thank you for a beautiful home in which to enjoy our vacation with family and close friends. Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was available and easily found. The fuzzy robes and bath sheet hot tub towels were fabulous. :)

We selected your home based on its ability to accommodate a group of our size while also providing a separation of space and privacy to each family group. The separate living/play areas on three levels were perfect.

Maybe it's because we are also from Texas but the decor was exactly what we were looking for in a dream vacation home! So many of the homes I considered were dark and furnishings appeared to be a hodgepodge of leftovers. It is obvious that this home is treasured by your family (we loved the many family photos!). Also, for a sun lover like me all the windows that flood the house with light and spectacular views was amazing.

Please take this as an absolute compliment... while everything was beautiful it also had just enough of a "lived in" feel as to put guests at ease. Being a woman with no children planning a trip for families with several young children I was more than a little nervous about the stairs and the possibility of kiddos breaking things. You seemed to have struck a perfect balance of luxury and livability. You even thought of providing baby gates if guests needed them!

Additionally, being a group that loves to cook we didn't eat out once so I can't comment on area restaurants. But the kitchen easily accommodated cooking for a group of our size. Also, having the duel washer and dryers was a nice perk.

Our group had mixed interests... the proximity of the house to shopping, slopes and daily needs things like the grocery store worked well for us. 5-10 minutes to shopping and 45 minutes of great scenery to the slopes was perfect. And Wolf Creek had enough variety of skiing to keep everyone from the daredevil double black skier to the first time six year olds very entertained.

Adults said next time we need to stay longer, kiddos were ready to move in and Uncle Jakie and Aunt Megan have the coolest house ever in the minds of a few youngsters! :)

In all we enjoyed ourselves immensely and hope you'll have us back!

Sincerely,
Megan and Jake

Owner's Response: Megan, we are so glad you had a great time in Pagosa and that you loved the house - a great deal of effort and thought went into the furnishings and décor and everyone seems to think it's perfect. Thank you for the many compliments and we hope to host you again in the future.

Great Thanksgiving Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had an outstanding stay at this gorgeous home over Thanksgiving week. The entire family joined us traveling as far as Ames, Iowa. We had a total of 8-adults and 4-children and this home can handle that size of a group and more. The children loved the game room in the lower level which left plenty of quiet time for the adults on the upper level. Your kitchen and dining area are superb in functionality and beautiful to the sight. All the bedroooms are fantastic. This is our second stay and we will be planning another in two-years. The children state that it is their favorite vacation every year.

FABULOUS! Luxurious retreat! Best place to stay in Pagsosa!

  • 5 of 5
This home is the absolute best of everything. This is not your normal vacation home. All the best quality materials were used to build this home and the owner obviously has a passion for quality. The home is beautiful, comfortable and spacious. Our family enjoyed Pagosa so much, but our favorite times of the day were when we returned home and were able to spread out and enjoy each of our own areas. My companion and I enjoyed sitting on the back porch and watching all the wildlife.....the kids loved exploring the area or playing in the game room downstairs. We all enjoyed watching the stars from the hot tub at night. I loved that the kitchen was so well stocked with kitchen utensils and pots and pans, always a plus when renting a vacation home. This was my first time here on my own (my children and I), but my family (parents, brother and my core family) have spent several winter weeks here in the past. The owner has always been such a joy to deal with! She has a true passion for hospitality and this house is her baby. Stay here if you are looking for the perfect retreat whether it be summer or winter!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the glowing report; we always love having you and your family stay at the house and we take it as a compliment to have so many families return as yours has. We've tried to think of everything to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible. I'm glad your horseback ride with Bugle em Up was as good as you hoped - it is spectacular scenery and they are great outfitters. I can't wait to put your old time photo on the wall with the others. See you next time!
