About Darlene Peterson

Originally for Minnesota, I moved to Pagosa Springs in 1993 after 15 years in Sedona, AZ. Keeping myself busy with the vrbo and working as a real estate broker for Exit Realty makes the days fly by. Bailey ( my dog) and I both love having people visit and enjoy the surrounding area. I've been an entrepreneur all my life and still keep my interior design business active. Life if full and always moving forward.

Darlene Peterson purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Darlene Peterson chose Pagosa Springs

I love to entertain and especially enjoy watching people relax in such beautiful surroundings.

What makes this apartment unique

Privacy and quiet along with fantastic views are a combination hard to beat. The property is located in the center of town only off the highway 3/4 mile and in the woods. Continental Divide views, wild life walking up the driveway is hard to beat.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for seven nights for our honeymoon which happened to be over New Years and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out! The driveway was maintained well even with all the snowfall the area had already received. The patio area was a great place to enjoy the view of the snow-covered woods and mountains in the distance with the outdoor fireplace turned on. The indoor space was the perfect size for a couple and looked great and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our own food. We drove to Wolf Creek ski area a few of the days and it only took about 30-40 minutes which was great.

The best part of all though was Darlene! She lives upstairs but we rarely heard her. A few times you may hear her footsteps but not enough to be bothersome. She is also extremely kind and helpful. On the way back from Wolf Creek one day we slid on the hill near her house and got stuck in the snow drift on the side of the road (as an inexperienced driver in snowy conditions I still had the car in a higher gear and relied too much on the brake to move slowly down the hill). After a few failed attempts at getting the car out I called Darlene and explained the situation. She arrived in her SUV after just a few minutes with a shovel and tow rope and was able to pull us out after I shoveled enough snow to get the tire free. She was very kind the whole time and didn't act like she had been bothered.

This place is just off the main road in town and close to all the main attractions in Pagosa Springs but once you get to her house you'll feel like you're in the middle of nowhere which was perfect. I absolutely recommend staying here and will hopefully be back.

My wife and I spent 4 delightful nights here to celebrate her birthday --- and couldn't have been happier....the views, the quiet, the decor of the lodgings, the surrounding land ---all just great. Darlene, our host, is gracious, friendly and makes sure everything is in order. The pictures here on VRBO are great, but don't do it justice....convenient to town, yet feels very remote. The perfect spot for a couple who want a quiet getaway, a romantic weekend, or a base to travel from and explore the area --- We'll be back!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was so nice to have a full kitchen so we could cook some of our own meals, the views are beautiful, it was the perfect size, the outdoor living area and the hot tub were wonderful. We usually stay in a motel when we come to Pagosa but having all this privacy was exceptional! The owner is very nice. Will stay here again for sure and have already recommended it to friends.

Great Ski Lodging with privacy

  • 5 of 5

As another reviewer said, the photos don't quite capture the nice property and wonderful space this rental offers. It is nicely furnished with a rustic cabin feel. The outdoor living room with fireplace and hot tub is truly WONDERUL for any time of day or night to enjoy the scene. Private entrance allows guest to come and go easily and it feels like a hidden getaway. I would highly recommend this rental to my friends.
