About Justin Dorsey

We lived in Pagosa for a few years to get away from the hectic pace of life in Dallas, TX. Prior to moving, we had taken many trips up to Pagosa over the years and fell in love with it. It's easy to see why they call it God's Country. Each season has its own beauty. Not to mention all of the fantastic outdoor activities: skiing, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, hunting, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, kayaking, rafting, fishing...shall I go on?

Once my son was born, we decided to head back to Texas to be closer to family. We decided to keep our home in Pagosa and turn it into a retreat for other families to enjoy. My family still goes up to the Pagosa Mountain Retreat about 4-5 times per year. We try to enjoy a stint of each season. We hope you will as well.

Justin Dorsey purchased this house in 2004

Why Justin Dorsey chose Twin Creek Village

We chose to buy a home in Pagosa Springs as it was, and still is, the most beautiful place we have ever seen. Being on top of the Continental Divide as the wildflowers are blooming in July is truly one of the most breath-taking experiences.

Pagosa is the best secret out there. Wolf Creek literally gets the most snow in Colorado each year and offers the best skiing/boarding conditions anywhere in the state. Check out the parking lot next time you are there and you will see a lot of CO plates. People drive from Denver when Wolf Creek gets a big snow. The weather patterns moving moisture up from the Baja into the San Juans creates the best conditions for snowfall. Durango Mountain Resort and Monarch are just a short drive away. The Weminuche Wilderness is the largest in the state and offers prestine forest to explore and numerous opportunities for seeing wildlife. Ten 14ers are within a few hours drive for the peek-bagging enthusiast. The gold medal waters fo the San Juan, Rio Grande, Animas and Piedra Rivers offer the best trout fishing around.

What makes this house unique

We are lucky to be situated right on the San Juan National Forest border. You can walk out the front door and literally be standing in the forest in less than a minute. The Pagosa Mountain Retreat sits across from Dutton Canyon and backs to Martinez Canyon. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing are great activities in the winter and hiking for miles in the summer. Bears, elk, deer, coyotes, turkeys all migrate up and down the canyons. Not unusual at all to see elk and deer in the front yard.

The mountain views off the decks are fantastic. Clear views of the Continental Divide along the San Juans'East Range. The private decks from the upstairs bedrooms are great for drinking coffee and watching the sun rise over the mountains to start a new day of adventure.

Best part is you may see 5 cars go by over a week's time. The neighborhood of Twin Creek Village is less than 5 minutes to everything, but still out where it's so quiet and peaceful. The stars at night on a clear evening go on forever. No sirens or city lights here...

Stay here when you can!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property! My husband and I took our 3 children (4, 9, and 18) and a friend of the oldest child and we had the best week! It was so nice to come "home" after a long day of skiing or whatever and have a place that really felt like home. We cooked in at the residence three nights and had everything we needed in the way of utensils and tools. Our children loved the game room as well. It is easy to get to anything you need in town, and the drive to Wolf Creek Ski Area is not bad at all. The home was clean and neat, the beds were comfortable, and it was a great place to kick back and relax on vacation! We loved it and hope that we can return again soon!

Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a total of 3 nights which included grandparents, our daughter and her three friends for her 16th birthday, and with our two sons ( all teenagers). We all had plenty of room, and we cooked meals every night, super happy the kitchen had everything we needed. All the girls slept downstairs which gave them plenty of privacy to have girl time, and we stayed on the main floor relaxing with great window views. We had such a good time that no one was ready to leave on the 4th day. Great Mountain Retreat we plan on going back again!

Excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 plus an additional friend had a very comfortable stay in this beautiful home! We were comfortable and cozy for about a week in December. So close to town and slopes...couldn't ask for a more convenient place to lay our heads. I cooked most of our meals in the well appointed kitchen. We would stay there again!

We had a great family vacation. A wonderful location for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

A great house for us and our children and their families to stay. Well supplied kitchen. It did get hot upstairs because there are no windows. We weren't comfortable leaving the outside doors open without screens. There were also loose and not so secure boards on the deck that we worried about.
