About the property

4 BR, 3.5 BA, sleeps maximum of 13

Pine Ridge Retreat is a large beautiful, custom home set amongst tall shady pine trees. The location is ideal at 8000 feet with easy access to the best that Pagosa Springs has to offer. It is a spacious getaway with stunning views. You can enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub or barbecue on the gas grill on our large sunny deck. This tastefully decorated home has all of the comforts and conveniences of your own home. The great room has a vaulted ceiling, a built in gas fireplace, a flat screen TV, a fully equipped kitchen and dining for 12. There are 3 full floors including a separate living area in the den providing plenty of room for everyone to have privacy. Other amenities include a large master shower, a ping pong table, games and videos. We have 4 TVs in the house with DVD players and 3 of them have dish network satellite TV service. We offer free internet and long distance service, with a laptop provided.

We normally have a 3 night minimum. Please check the calendar before sending your request. It is usually accurate. Rates are seasonal. During peak times, there is a 5 night minimum. Christmas 2017 rates are $445/night.

The retreat is a large four bedroom home with three and a half baths located in the mountains 1 mile above the highway and river between Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek Pass, in San Juan River Resort, the closest neighborhood to Wolf Creek Ski Area. Many other properties are on the other side of town and will take you 20-30 minutes longer to drive to the ski area. The elevation closer to the mountains and forests keep the retreat cooler than some other Pagosa areas in the summer.

A small pond is visible from the deck and is a 5 minute walk away. There is a large covered picnic area there with tables and grills.

The gravel road in the subdivision is well maintained but during winter good snow vehicles are often necessary as well as for Wolf Creek Pass. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Taking walks or bike rides right out of the front door are very pleasant. There is also close access to national forest trails.

Our home is personally owned and managed. We take pride in maintaining the highest quality of accommodations and all amenities. The home is always very clean and well stocked with supplies and plenty of quality linens. It surpasses the usual vacation rental experience!

Why Stewart Rafalo chose Pagosa Springs

The serene mountain setting is heavenly. There are a multitude of year round outdoor activities to enjoy right in the back yard. The location is ideal, San Juan River Resort is a wonderful neighborhood. Being on the East side of Pagosa Springs makes driving to the ski area or town very convenient with no traffic. In the summer, the higher elevation and pine forest make it cool and pleasant. While there are other houses close by, the way our house is situated above the garage makes it feel private with great views from any window. The neighborhood is quiet, many of the nearby homes are rarely occupied.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We vacationed at Pine Ridge Retreat with my brother and his family. We loved the hot tub and the views. We enjoyed the big deck and having enough room for everyone at the table. My kids loved the ping pong table. We will definitely stay at the house again.

Great location for for multiple/large family trip

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this house for a spring break ski trip. We had 4 adults and 5 kids and the layout of the house was perfect. Plenty of room for the whole group on the main floor, and the downstairs playroom provided a perfect getaway for the kids and some peace and quite for the adults. Lots of space and comfortable bedrooms, well appointed kitchen, great hot tub on the porch. The owners provided useful tips and information and they were great to work with. We would absolutely stay here again.

Great Family Home in Geat Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. We enjoyed the home and location so much we came back. We had 9 adults and 3 kids and the home was more than enough room for us. The hot tub was great. Good location and access to the Wolf Creek Ski area and to town. The property had everything we needed. We will be back again next year. The owners are great to work with!

Spacious and well-stocked.

  • 5 of 5

A family friendly property with lots of space. The house was well stocked with plenty of towels and linens. It had laundry supplies, tons of spices and condiments. This house had things we usually bring or buy, but they were already there and waiting on us.

The owner was helpful and communicated with us well. The hot tub was easy to use and maintain. It was a blessing to stay in such a well stocked and comfortable home.

Everything is in perfect conditions and well maintained.

For sure a great option for vacations.

Perfect Family Vacation (From a HomeAway employee)

  • 5 of 5

I am a HomeAway employee and have been working for the company for over 2 years. This is the first time I have stayed at one of our listings and I have to say, THIS WAS A PERFECT HOUSE for my family's vacation!

The house was PLENTY big enough to accommodate my 13 member family, including 2 toddlers and an infant. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything needed to cook family meals INCLUDING seasonings and spices. The master bath is HUGE, and the additional 2 bathrooms make it easy for a large family to stay. The house was clean, and all rooms had everything needed to experience the comforts of home. I don't believe the owner had any warning or indication that one of the company employees were going to be staying at their house. Therefor one could only assume that they keep their house in this pristine condition on a regular basis. The house is located in an even split between the ski resort and the town of pagosa springs making it easy to travel to both places for fun and entertainment. Will definitely be renting again in the future!


~Happy HomeAway employee!~

Owner's Response: Wow! That's great! No, I had no idea that you were a HomeAway employee. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Usually, I have a chance to personally go through the property to make sure that everything is clean, stocked and ready and that the hot tub is ready. I could not do that before your stay because I am out of town helping my ill mother. I appreciate the great job our housekeeper is doing. I was disappointed in the hot tub service company. That is very rare that the hot tub is not ready to go. I apologize but I'm glad that we could fix the problem over the phone. Thank you, Stella

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Stella has all of the details taken care of at the Pine Ridge Retreat from linens, towels, to a fully stocked kitchen. The hot tub was such a nice amenity to have after a day of skiing. I will for sure be renting again. I do have one disclaimer the crock pot is much smaller than your average sized one but fortunately there is a large pot.
