You wake up to panoramic views of the mountains. Heaven on Earth Lodge has two levels of living areas. The middle floor is the gorgeous open living room and kitchen area, where all can gather for fun family time. There is a beautiful rock wood burning fireplace that warms the room while taking in a breath taking view. Also, on this floor are two bedrooms with queen size beds. One of the bedrooms has it's own private bath. Adjoining the other bedroom is a classic mountain style tiled bath off the hall. As you stroll down the wood stairs to the kids room you'll find two large double/twin beds along with a futon couch/bed nestled in front of a wood burning stove. With only a hallway away, you'll find another cozy full queen size bedroom with a rock fireplace and an old fashioned wood burning stove. The downstairs does have a full shower and bath area.

This little apartment has a full kitchen and living room area along with a full bath and shower room. This apartment has a flat screen TV with Satellite. It is perfect for those who want a little privacy from the larger group. This apartment can be rented out separately from the main house for hunters or a family. If you are renting only the apartment, the house will remain vacant.
The play room is equipped with a large ping pong table, foosball table and an area with flat screen TV dedicated to WII games. This room is great for entertaining the entire family without the noise factor affecting those who want to sleep, if those playful souls want to stay up late into the night.
If you are looking for relaxation after a long day of hiking or skiing, there is a six person hot tub on the deck that over looks the mountains. If you want to experience the ultimate comfort of Colorado, you have to grab a glass of wine and watch the sun go down while soaking on the deck in the hot tub.
There is a double car attached garage. The lodge is surrounded by wild flowers, aspens, large beautiful Colorado pines and the San Juan mountains. This property is easily accessible during the snowy months and has that wilderness feeling because you don't see any neighbors. This is the kind of property you tell your friends about and keep reserving for years.

My wife and I live in San Antonio, Texas. I am a writer, producer and entrepreneur. This is a dream property that was quite honestly a gift from God. All of my life we wanted a place to escape to. We wanted a home that looked like someplace in a magazine------we found it!!!! The usual response when people drive up is 'Oh my God, this place is gorgeous!!!' Our greatest joy in having the 'Dream Ranch' is that we love to share it and bring joy to others who desperately need a get away to remember.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Archuleta County
We chose Pagosa Springs quite honestly because of the great reputation it has for maintaining that small mountain town feel and the beauty of the area. You don't have to drive another 6-8 hours north to find majestic mountains and great skiing and hiking. It's all right here in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
What makes this House unique
This property stands out above most all of the other rentals on the market for several reasons. It sets on 36 secluded acres, yet it's only 5 minutes from downtown. If would be very difficult to find a property with more majestic views that what this home has. We enjoy looking down in the pastures at the Clysdale horses grazing in the field. We relish the moments of soaking in the hot tub in the late afternoon after a long day of hiking in the mountains. Another of our favorite things to do is to curl up on the deck gazing at the mountains with a good book in our hands with a big glass of lemon tea. It just doesn't get any better. If you want to experience relaxation it's here, if you want to experience activity it's here, either way your vacation will be one you won't forget.

Definitely "Heaven of Earth"
This was our first year to start a cousin family reunion and we could have not picked a better place! From the house to the majestic views, to the town and 4th of July celebration, we were more than pleased with our experience.
I would by far say my favorite part was how much the kids loved every aspect of the home. There is a place on the property called Tranquility Knoll. We went up there to have a camp fire and make s'mores and you will never find a better view!
The owner and property manager were easy to work with. I would recommend this property time and again! We WILL be back!
Our small family of 12 stayed for 4 nights in this amazing home. My now husband and I got married on the balcony during our stay there, it was small and intimate with only our small family. It was beautiful and breathtaking. In addition, working with the owner and property manager was more than easy. They accommodated any needs we had and checked in with us regularly. We have rented many properties in the past, with VRBO and this was our best experience ever. We know to take our own supplies, however, what a pleasant surprise when the home was ready for us with a few bathroom and kitchen supplies. We would and will be planning to come back to this home. We had 3 children with us (ages 7-9) and they may have had more fun than the adults. The game room is wonderful and so much for the kids to do.
Beautiful Home with plenty of space for our large family!
My family of 14 (10 adults and 4 kids) just got back from a great Thanksgiving weekend at the house and couldn't have been happier. The location is excellent just a few minutes from downtown Pagosa but at the same time feels very remote and secluded. A few people in our group also went up to Wolf Creek ski area which is a quick 25 minute drive from the house. The property is expansive so the kids had plenty of room to play around outside and the game room was a big hit as well. The house is well taken care of with great furnishings and has just about everything you need to feel at home. The owner and property manager were great to work with and made this experience even easier than going to a hotel. This was my first VRBO experience so I really appreciated that aspect of the rental. We can't wait to go back sometime in the future!
Great Friends and Family Snowboarding Trip
The cabin was better than expected and fit 15 people very comfortably. We cant wait to go again!
This was our annual 3-family summer vacation and we couldn't have picked a better place! 6 adults and 7 kids and it never felt crowded, there was plenty of room for all. The house was beautiful and well-maintained and the views spectacular, plus so many fun activities in the area. We definitely hope to come back here!
Skied Wolf Creek
Incredible place! It was a 30 - 40 minute drive to the slopes but easy and well worth it. We would have liked having more towels available as we were a big group and there was NOT internet access as listed on the amenities page. Other than that this place would get 5 stars.
