About Donna Sanders

We have lived in Pagosa Springs for 20 years and loved raising our sons in this small mountain town.

Donna Sanders purchased this house in 2008

Why Donna Sanders chose Pagosa Springs

We purchased this property on the river to share with our grown kids and their families as our family grows.

What makes this house unique

This house is located on the San Juan River and in downtown Pagosa. The best of two locations. The wrap-around deck is charming in this mountain setting.

Wonderful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on our trip. The house was comfortable for everyone. We cooked meals in the kitchen together,played cards and games around the big farm table each night, and a fire in the fire pit a few nights. The location was perfect for a walk to all the neat places downtown has to offer. We drove up the mountain to ski, out 84 for a 5 mile hike and snowmobiling on Wolf Creek pass! One sunny day I used the backdrop of the river and the wooden shed for my son's graduation pictures. We are planning our next trip already! Thank you for sharing your awesom house, it really made our vacation better than we could have imagined !

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed staying at the Pagosa River House. Sounds like you had a wonderful time in our small mountain town. Hope the senior pictures turn out great and the wooden shed is a classic, built with old style construction. It is always good to hear that the house had everything you needed for a memorable vacation.

Great place for groups and families

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was so spacious but at the same time very cozy. The rooms were spacious and the kitchen was nicely appointed (we were able to cook full meals with all the equipment). We had a mixed group of grandparents, kids, and young adults and it was perfect for all of us. The property backs right up to the river, and we were able to walk to places in town to eat very easily. I would love to stay here again!

Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Our family had a great time in this home. It was very clean and nicer than the pictures display. Donna had the house decorated for the holidays too. The location is great too...easy walking distance to the bakery and other downtown spots! I think the only thing that may have helped was to have the back yard all enclosed so the dog couldn't get out. Other than that, it was a very nice stay! Thanks, Donna!

Wonderful property in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 adults for a week of skiing at Wolf Creek in late December. The house is beautifully furnished and there was plenty of room for everyone to have some privacy for sleeping or just relaxing and also large rooms for gathering. Perfect location for apes ski and days off with only a few minutes walk to explore Pagosa Springs including the hot springs, great restaurants, and shops. The property is right on the river with a fire pit so warm weather visits are probably even nicer. The owner was very helpful and accessible for suggestions and the house was immaculately clean. Easy and scenic 30 minute ride to Wolf Creek. Thanks for a wonderful vacation experience!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

The San Juan River house was a perfect location for our family vacation this summer! The home is situated right on the San Juan River & within walking distance to the Hot Springs, downtown and so much more! We purchased tubes and floated the river many times. Our daily walks/hikes with our Golden Retriever Daisy were delightful as well as soaking in the springs! Lots of room! We highly recommend this place!
