About Jim White

Jim, a Santa Fe, NM native hiked the Weminuche wilderness as a kid. Paradise in the Pines is our dream-get-away from the hustle/bustle of city life: where our kids watch Humming-birds/deer/fox/coyottes and the occasional bear plus great fishing.

Jim White purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim White chose Pagosa Springs

Year round adventure, where humming birds/deer/fox visit often!

What makes this house unique

Plentiful powder and "first to open Colorado ski resort" at Wolf Creek, feisty trout in the spring-fall, hiking among one of the largest US Wilderness, some of Colorado's most beautiful fall colors, water falls and mountain scenery. Year-round soaking in Pagosa Hot Springs with full spa options for complete relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing my family the use of your home. It was convenient to everything and the kitchen was great to cook in. Spring break in Pagosa is always a treat. The welcome treats were put to good use. Thanks again and God willing, we will return again.

With the adjacent vacant lot, the entire property is fenced in for added privacy . Since this home is equipped with an expensive radiant heating system for the winter, central air is not an option, however we provide A/C in master bedroom and a portable swamp cooler (located in master bedroom closet: just fill w/ water and turn on) to cool down the upstairs (there are ceiling fans in most rooms). The home cools down quickly via cross ventilation/A/C + swamp cooler during the hottest days of July.

Perfect spot for family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We came together from three states and everyone gave this property, as well as Pagosa Springs, two thumbs up. This beautiful home comes with amenities and supplies you don't get in other rental properties. Its located close to town and a short drive to Wolf Creek ski resort. Highly recommend Paradise in the Pines!!

Comfortable, clean and attractive house

  • 5 of 5

We were happy with this property, especially its generous supplies of lotions, shampoo, paper products, and kitchen basics such as oils, spices, etc. The gas stove was excellent as were the great-quality pots and pans. Home was in a pleasant tree-filled area that was generally quiet except for a few noisy dogs and loud ATVs that did quiet down at night. The room darkening shades and big king-size bed were nice too. The detailed notes and pre-arrival instructions were thorough and helpful. We left several notes in the guest book about small repairs that were needed and other suggestions for items that could be added to the kitchen, but none of these prevented us from enjoying the property. It is close to the town and most of its amenities and overall the house was kept very clean and in very good shape. It worked well for two adult couples. Thank you.

Quiet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 dogs and I went for a long weekend snow getaway. Originally we had planned for another couple to come so we had a ton of space to ourselves but it would comfortably fit a bigger family/group with no problem. Check in was easy with the code provided to house keys. The house was very nice, well equipped with all the amenities including games and movies for kids or families. We had space for our dogs to be set up in the downstairs hall area which was nice. The floor had radiant heating which was neat. The neighborhood was quiet- and feels like you're far from town but only 3 minutes from food, gas, and grocery.

Know before you go: some of the instructions through the house conflicted- the garbage leave-out instructions conflicted from garage wall to the instruction book upstairs. We also found some instructions on walls in garage that weren't in book (i.e. regarding getting charged if you park in garage with a snowy car.) We found that on accident because the fly screen over the door obstructed it. We swept and cleaned up with water but beware of this if you're not from snowy area- apparently it gets dirty fast and it was a pain after-the-fact to fix. If instructions were all condensed into the book then it would be easier to make sure all rules were followed- just know to read all the walls in addition to the rule manual when you get there (normally I read the book first thing, but we found more rules scattered everywhere over the next day).

Tips for neat freaks with travel cleanliness anxiety (like me): The house doesn't have much cleaning supply I could find easily so pack your fave disinfectant wipes/spray if you like to have a clean kitchen or wipe up after yourself. If you have kids or allergies you might want to pack your own mini vac too since it's hard to clean area rugs without one and leave a clean house by the end of your stay. You could sweep the kitchen but everywhere else has area rugs.

Overall, we would stay again!

Great spot for relaxation and outdoor activities

  • 5 of 5

Well-stocked kitchen with good quality pans, knives, dishware and fun glasses for all kind of drinks!

Comfortable beds.

Spacious living room/dining table.

Clean, well-stocked bathrooms.

Comfortable radiant floor heating keeps it cozy.

Close to town, but also 10 minutes to great cross-country skiing/snowshoeing.

Small garage, but perfect for one car to stay warm and dry in a storm.

We enjoyed it all! Thanks for sharing your house.

Nice Short Stay

  • 4 of 5

We only stayed three nights but had a great time in PS. The heated floors were a nice bonus but the living & dining areas were dimly lit after sunset. We actually didn’t use the kitchen...since we skiied each day, we basically only showered and slept at the house. There were soooo many instructions. I pay attention to details so I read everything that was emailed/left/posted. Everything was just as stated in the ad and our deposit was returned promptly. I called the owner with a question and was able to reach her with no problem. Recommend this home if you’re looking in PS.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up-please note that the dining room has a "dimmer light switch" and the 5 bulbs in the antler fixture (above the dining table) provide a very bright effect when set on the highest setting. We are bringing a new reading light for the living room next time we go to the house & will evaluate all the lighting in the main area. Regards Jim
