Come play in the mountains and stay in the middle of it all in Pagosa Springs. The Wolf Creek Ski Area is about 20 miles away and the main roads are always kept clean. This ski area gets more snow than any other ski area in Colorado, on average. You will not want to leave!

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at this home. the views are incredible and everything is as advertised. The house is close to town but far enough out that you can enjoy the quiet of nature. We saw deer, turkeys, eagles, ravens, chipmunks, squirrels, blue birds, hummingbirds, and more. If you are wanting to stay near Pagosa Springs, do yourself a favor and stay here.

Incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 runners stayed at the "Tree House" for the Devil Mountain 50K race and it was one of the best vrbo rentals we have ever had. The home has a wraparound deck with incredible mountain views. We even saw some bucks passing by while eating breakfast on the deck. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. Paul was also very communicative and clearly available if needed as he was kind enough to check in with us. Thank you for the wonderful stay and we'd love to be back again!

Big peaceful treehouse 2017

  • 4 of 5

This house was a great peaceful getaway. We went the end of July, beginning of August 2017. It was the time of year where you could get some rain in the afternoons but for the most part, we were okay with that. It was still a lot better than being in the TX heat. The views were nice, it was very quite, and we loved sitting outside and watching the deer and wildlife. The house was well equipped with all we needed so it was not necessary for me to bring paper towels, good kitchen knifes, etc. I wish I had brought however, some chairs to have to sit outside on the lower deck or by the fire pit and I also wish I had brought my hammock to hang in. The main floor had the kitchen, dining, den, master and closet/bath. Downstairs had the washing machine/dryer, two more bedrooms with queen beds, a jack and jill big bathroom and a large couch and chair, game table and TV. It also had bunk beds tucked around the side in case you needed extra sleeping space. Then the lowest level, probably the garage before they remodeled. Bunk bed with a queen, large couch, ping pong, and a bath separate from the shower with a dog tub. You can tell this house is family owned and loved.

The house # is hard to see so if you come at night, be well prepared to find it in the trees. We liked having it gated, our three-legged dog had a blast chasing deer and squirrels. After it rained the gate was a bit hard to open, but I'm sure that's a pretty easy fix. The hot tub we only used once, the jets did not all work and there wasn't a great view so I'm not sure that was worth the extra charges for us but all and all, very nice.

The drive into town was fast, seemed like five minutes. Our favorite spots were, Riff Raff Brewing Co., (best beer and best food), Tequila's, (Nachos and Margaritas) Farrago Market Cafe, (Goat cheese salad) and Ski & Bow Rack, (free fly fishing lessons on Saturday mornings) and we loved the people there. We did not like Kip's :( food was very bland). Best hike, Piedra Falls. The drive in is an hour but the hike is not too long and the end will take your breath away. Longest hike was Four mile hike. The drive took us about 45 minutes and the hike would have taken us two hours just to get to the fall but storm with high winds came on so fast, had we only made it half way. Trees started falling all around us and it was pretty scary but we had fun and wish we were able to finish.

Enjoy this great house, we sure loved it!!

We rented this home for a family vacation for 8. There was more than enough room for everyone. The house & views are beautiful. There were so many humming birds. There were many activities to do not far from the property. We really enjoyed our stay.
