Escape to the Sunshine! The historic mountain town of Pagosa Springs is Colorado’s best kept secret. With an average of 320 days of sunshine, and a ski resort that consistently has the most snow in the state, Pagosa Springs is a recreational dream come true. The San Juan Mountains, the San Juan National Forest, the San Juan River, the Pagosa Hot Springs, Wolf Creek Ski Area, both the Weminuche and South San Juan Wildernesses, and Navajo Lake are all in close proximity, making this home the perfect base for all of your adventures, whatever time of year.
This home was remodeled during the winter of 2010/2011. Every effort was made to use sustainable and environmentally responsible resources. This conveniently located downtown home has two bedrooms, one and a half bath and sleeps four.
As you walk through the front door you will immediately be struck by the open, clean, quality feel of the house. There is bamboo flooring throughout.
The living room has comfortable leather furniture, a wood stove, and a flat screen television with a dvd player. At the far side of the room you will find a full kitchen stocked with all of dishes, cookware, glassware, stemware, spices, oils and everything else you'll need should you choose to dine in. There is an insta-hot water spigot, so you don’t have to wait a second for a cup of tea or cocoa. The dining room table is set and just waiting for great food, friends and conversation. The lighting in each room is controlled by a programmable dimmer and you can easily change the scene to fit your needs.
Out the sliding doors in the dining room you will find a covered porch with a gas grill and rocking chairs. It is a wonderful place to relax and listen to the rustling leaves of the Quaking Aspens that surround the house. The hot tub is located in the nicely landscaped courtyard just off of the deck. There are chives, tarragon, mint and possibly other herbs growing amongst the flowers and you’re welcome to help yourself to them.
Down the hallway from the living area you will find a full bathroom with a tub/shower and heated travertine floor tiles. Across the hallway is the ample laundry room with a full sized front loading washer and dryer. There is plenty of room in here for your ski or snowboard gear and there are boot dryers to get everything warmed up for the next day. There is also a gate around the wood stove that makes an excellent drying rack. This house is outfitted with a central vacuum unit and that and all of the accessories for it are in the laundry room closet.
At the end of the hallway are the two bedrooms, both with queen size beds invitingly made up with quality linens, soft blankets and down comforters. The master bedroom has custom cedar lined closets and boasts a private half bath with heated travertine floor tiles.
The sidewalk to the front door is heated. We do provide snow removal but this helps to insure a dry, ice free, safe path from the parking area to the front door.
There is also an apartment above a two car garage on the property. Guests share the courtyard and hot tub. See VRBO listing #358643. Both units rented together sleep 8.
We are local Pagosa Springs folks and are thankful to work, play and live here. Steve has been an electrical contractor for the past 14 years and during that time I have run the office. We now manage several vacation rentals together as well. Our two young children, old black dog and cat round out our happy home. We live just a mile away from the rentals and are always available to answer questions and handle any situations that may arise.
We lived in this house for over a decade and were continually working to improve it. Countless projects later, it has become a peaceful, comfortable, uncomplicated space and the most common reason that our guests return is that it feels like home! There are many details throughout the home that make it special and we are delighted when guests discover and appreciate them.
