Lake Hatcher Park House Rental Photos and Description

9 bdrms+3 slpr sofas, 3 living areas+media rm+2 game rms, 6.5 bath, sleeps 18-24

A great place for family reunions. The place sleeps 18 adults age 16 and over, plus the kids. You can get a Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association fishing permit and fish right off the private dock or go out on a kayak or canoe to fish the rest of the lake or other lakes that allow fishing in the PLPOA area. The lakes are no gas lakes, so paddling and electric motors only.

There have also been quite a few weddings at Casa Laguna. There have been ceremonies on the deck, on the dock, in the side yard and inside. The house is not a commercial venue. It is located in a residential neighborhood, so no outside live music and no evening/night outdoor activities.

A quiet relaxing or fun energetic vacation (your choice) awaits you at Casa Laguna.

Why Derald Polston chose Pagosa Springs

Pagosa Springs simply has it all, and is very enjoyable. It has all the amenities without the usual huge crowds and huge prices one might expect from such a beautiful location. Pagosa Springs is a mountain community in South West Colorado with its own world class hot springs. It is home the of Parelli Horsemanship, and has horse drawn sleighs, horse back riding, chuck wagon suppers, and the Red Rider Rodeo. There are a variety of summer and winter festivals some of which include: Music in the Mountains (world class classical music), ColorFest (hot air balloon festival), the Renaissance and Pirate Festival, the Mountain Chile Cha Cha (including a green chile cook off), Winterfest (winter sports and activities), 4 Corners Folk Festival (folk music), Pagosa Folk n’ Bluegrass Festival, and the May River Rod Run Car Show. The Pagosa Lakes area sports a 27 hole golf course. There are hundreds of hiking/biking trails, several rivers/lakes for boating, rafting, water skiing, or fishing in the area. As well as a Community Theater, a Wildlife Park, and lots of antique shops, not to mention, tons of fresh air and breathtaking views.

Spacious beautiful retreat that exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not an avid reviewer and seldom write one, but for Casa Laguna—I will make an exception! From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The grandchildren’s delighted squeals as they checked out the house confirmed we were in the right home for our LARGE family get-together. It was to be a celebration of my recently retired husbands 40+ years as a pilot, and I wanted everything to be perfect….and it was!! SPACIOUS is the best word to describe this homes most endearing feature. The kitchen with twin dishwashers, microwaves, ovens and fridges made it a joy to cook meals for a crowd. The numerous bedrooms, media room, spacious dining area and gorgeous outdoor deck gave us plenty of room to spread out and not be on top of each other. The fishing boat, foosball table, pool table, games and kayaks offered hours of entertainment. The splendid outdoor area made for perfect early morning runs, and leisurely walks. The view from the deck was so enjoyable. The wildlife and a double rainbow were just icing on the cake. Throw in all the wonderful day trips nearby in the Pagosa Springs/Durango area and wow! Thank you Casa Laguna for giving our family treasured lasting memories.

Amazing memories at an amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing memories were made when our family of 24 spent a week together this summer at this amazing home. Everything about this home was excellent! Our family enjoyed sharing all our meals in the spacious home, sleeping comfortably in the exellently furnished bedrooms, easily using the canoe and kayaks to enjoy the lake, and utilizing the gorgeous deck overlooking the lake for meals, visiting, family talent show, line dancing, grandkid craft times, etc. The house is perfectly located just a short drive north of downtown Pagosa Springs and near several beautiful hiking trails/rivers/lakes. It is certainly a home we look forward to using again in the future.

Awesome Home For Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property for Summer Family Reunion. We had 25+ people - adults and children and the layout and amenities were perfect for our large crew. The attention to detail in furnishings, housewares, and overall household needs was great. The location was quiet yet close enough to town for tubing, grocery store runs and hikes. Our family utilized the canoe and kayaks and loved the ease for anyone in our group to wander off on peaceful lake outing. Would highly recommend this property and location for anyone looking for a beautiful home for a large group. The pricing and date flexibilty was good and communicating with the owner directly was easy and he always answered all of our questions quickly. Our family reunion was memorable and everyone had lots of fun.

The quality of this home is even better in person than it looks in the photos.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. It is very large and handled our very large family reunion with ease. I was impressed that the quality of the cabin, fixtures, furnishings and everything inside and out was first class like you would choose at your own home. The five generously sized rooms with king size beds and attached baths were great for our married children. We enjoyed the canoe and kayaks on the lake with the kids and grand kids. We look forward to returning to this beautiful place on the lake.

Vow Renewal

  • 5 of 5

Great Home! We had so much fun and everyone was more than comfortable. Perfect location close enough to town with the peace and quiet we wanted. We enjoyed the springs, ice fishing right off the back deck of the house, snowboarding at wolf creek, and spending time together at the house. Thanks for opening up your home to our family. We cooked all of our meals here except for 1, the kids watched movies and played outside as well as in the game rooms and loft area. While the adults hung out at the dining room table socializing. We would love to go back again. Derald the owner was fantastic to work with and his property manager Carrie was very helpful as well.

Perfect! This is the only way I can describe this great house. We had 19 family members ranging from 5 months to 60 years and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in this beautiful setting! I would recommend this rental to anyone that is planning a family reunion. We'll be back.
