Twin Creek Village House Rental Photos and Description

3BR + loft BR; 3 bath, gameroom and office on over an acre with mountain views

This is your fairy tale mountain chalet with floor to ceiling window views of the San Juans. The Turkey Springs trailhead is a short walk down the hill, and fishing, rafting and hot springs are just a ten-minute drive. The jumbo deck under the trees is your summer grilling and picnic headquarters, with outdoor seating for everyone in your group. Watch abundant wildlife stroll through the backyard--we have a resident herd of deer on the acreage. The party-size hot tub sits on huge outside deck, also with great views. The property sits on a wooded acreage that seems remote yet less than 10 minutes from restaurants, bars & grocery store.

Spring, summer and fall are paradise all well. You'll be visited by lots of wildlife--bald eagle, deer--frequently. Everyone's favorite hiking trails (Happy Meal Trail and Turkey Springs) are within walking distance.

Everything you need to have a great vacation with friends and family are here: regulation pool table, hot tub, games, books, music, big screen TV, cook's kitchen and luxury linens.

Grab a week of great experience in our lovely family vacation rental in Pagosa Springs. Everything in the home is ready for your family to enjoy the best of Colorado and Family fun. All amenities, furniture, appliances and linens are less than two years old.

Why choose Pagosa Springs? FOUR SEASONS OF FUN--great activities for the whole family to enjoy in every season:

* Winter skiing at Wolf Creek--deepest snow in Colorado

*Spring skiing followed by hiking & wildflowers

*Summer sports--great fishing, biking & hiking, rafting, horseback riding, bring your own gear for all your fun we have a large garage to store it all securely.

*Fall--enjoy the gorgeous fall foliage from our deck, plus skiing sometimes starts up at Wolf Creek in October

Why choose our cabin?

Do you want to kick back and relax yet be surrounded by comfort and cowboy luxe?

Do you want to enjoy a vacation rental where literally everything is brand new, from furnishings to linens to kitchen gear?

Well, then--book now! Please contact Sarah if you have any questions about Pagosa or the house itself: 469-236-0017. We would be delighted to hear from you and share our love of Pagosa Springs.

You'll love our kitchen outfitted for vacation cooks. Your crowd will love the fun cowboy decor and unlike some other rentals, you'll find plenty of empty pantry space. New, top-quality designer linens & towels with top-quality hypo-allergenic pillow and mattress covers. We also use environmentally friendly and hypo-allergenic Melaleuca cleaning products.

Our three-level cabin sleeps 10 in beds but has plenty of linens and dishes for 12 if someone wants to sleep on the very comfy sofas or on an air mattress that you bring.

Lone Star Loft: the top level loft has a sleeping alcove with a queen bed and dresser and an adjoining full bath with shower. You cannot see the sleeping quarters from below. The loft also has a gameroom with an 8-foot Brunswick pool table and another section with a fully equipped office. If you must do a little work during your stay, you'll find free Wi-Fi plus a wi-fi printer and basic office supplies in the desk with a great mountain view. There is also a very comfy reading nook in the loft with a lamp and table.

The main level includes a great room, kitchen/dining area, and master suite. The great room boasts the entertainment center of your dreams. 55' flat-screen TV hooked up to the DISH network, plus a great assortment of movies, games, music and books to keep you entertained on rainy days. The round marble-topped dining table seats 8 comfortably with room for 4 more on the bar. The great room has a powder bath down the hallway plus a large capacity washer/dryer.

You'll love the impressive yet comfortable furniture in the master with LOADS of closet and dresser space plus a king-sized bed with high thread-count sheets and top-quality mattress.

On the lower level, you'll find two very large bedrooms plus a full bath.

Hootsuite: Kids of all ages will love this owl-themed bedroom with its own mini-entertainment center. Two can sleep comfortably in twin beds or push 'em together for couples.

Moose on the Loose Family Room: Perfect for families with young children--this room has a new queen mattress and luxe cabin bedding with two additional matching twin beds with their own stuffed animals. Sleeps up to four.

You've just GOT to get outside to appreciate this place. Every morning and evening, the herd of deer wander right below the deck. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine sitting in the amazing wood-carved gliders. Seating for eight or you can pull more chairs out. The extremely spacious side deck has a new redwood picnic table that seats up to 10 with additional benches for more seating. The gas grill is large enough to barbecue with friends.

Be sure to get out and enjoy the acreage! You'll find yoga mats and instruction book for sunrise salutations on the front deck. Or, set up the badminton or volleyball in the level area below. You'll enjoy birdwatching (see guidebook on coffee table). We frequently see bald eagles soaring above! Nothing is better than watching the full moon rise over the distant San Juans from the deck.

The house comes with a two-car garage but be warned! The spaces are standard but the center post makes it difficult for larger cars. If you use the garage with a larger car, pull the mirrors in before entry. There is plenty of room to park up to six cars on the driveway outside. Our driveway is short and flat with a side area paved for additional parking.

PLEASE NOTE: We really want you to have a wonderful time and typically refund 100% of the damage deposit if no visible damage is present. However, please treat our home like your home. Owner reserves the right to deduct fees from the $500 damage deposit:

1. If cleaning crew discovers that guests have brought a pet

2. If the house is left unusually dirty requiring more than the $150 normal cleaning fee.

3. If the guest has polluted the hot tub with bubbles, shampoo, soft drinks, or alcohol. This requires the tub to be drained and refilled and rebalanced. Yes, we've already had guests dump all that stuff into our nice new hot tub. Also, DO NOT TAKE ANY GLASS CONTAINERS into the tub. We have found some at the bottom and it is a real safety issue. Just don't do it.

Thanks--the management.

About Chuck & Sarah Riehm

Our family has been coming to Colorado twice a year since we were first married in 1974--one summer hiking trip and one winter ski trip. The past few years the snow has been very disappointing at other major Colorado ski resorts so we thought we'd try Wolf Creek so booked a trip to Pagosa Springs in March 2013. We remember asking ourselves, 'How good could this ski resort BE with prices so low?' The answer is--GREAT! Chuck is an expert skiier who can tackle any run on the mountain and the rest of us are light blue. We found plenty of terrain for all of us at unbelievably low prices for lift tickets and rentals. Plus, we just fell in love with the natural beauty of the place. The fact that you can hike in real wilderness right outside your doorstep is a real draw. Plus, Pagosa offers so many other fun activities from concerts to live theater to the amazing hot springs to horseback riding and rafting.

Chuck & Sarah Riehm purchased this house in 2013

Why Chuck & Sarah Riehm chose Pagosa Springs

We looked at property for days that would be suitable for our family. When we walked into 74 Walnut Place, we just KNEW! The view is amazing, plus the minute you walk in the door you feel like you are on vacation, with the soaring wood ceilings. We wanted something very UNLIKE a typical suburban ranch and believe we have found it at Liberty Ridge. Sarah is a writer with a number of books and plays published, including the play Liberty which was produced at the Kennedy Center and is headed for development in New York. The place is named for that sense of freedom you feel up here on the high ridge with the awe-inspiring views in every direction. Plus, she loves the office in the loft where she can look out over the mountains. Chuck loves the spacious outdoor decks with lots of room for picnics and parties.

What makes this house unique

The centerpiece of the property is the front prow deck with the hand-made gliders. Perfect for morning coffee or a glass of wine as you watch the sun set. We also love the fact that a large crowd can gather comfortably in the great room at one time--yet there are enough quiet spots throughout the home so you can get away and have privacy when needed.

Great Trip - House was everything that was promised and MORE.

  • 5 of 5

We are experienced summer vacationers in Colorado - almost every year since the 1970's. We normally stay in the mountains about 40 minutes South of Pagosa Springs and do all our shopping in Pagosa Springs - so we are very familiar with it. This year, we wanted to bring our entire family (and a couple of friends) - so we thought we would try the town. I knew I needed an early start to find the right property (and beds) for a dozen people from age 9-68. Liberty Ridge was my choice and it was perfect. We were never crowded and loved the fact that we could all eat dinner together - the open living area kept everyone involved. Directions for everything are easy to find, no problems with TV, WIFI or anythinig else. A well stocked Pantry is a HUGE bonus - nothing worse that having to go to the store because you need a 1/2 cup of sugar or a teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce. The cleaning crew does a great job of tossing what should be tossed and saving a squeeze bottle of Catsup or some salad dressing or mustard. We are cooks, I travel with a box of groceries and my knives (although they have good ones) - it was a joy to find basics available - including coffee/filters/sugar. The City Market is close and make the effort to find Choke Cherry - a must stop for us for decades, just to the East of City Market. Great gifts to take home to house sitter/friends, and I keep Grandpa Bills Sauce in my pantry always, so I have to buy several bottles.

Really clean and well equipped. Great communication with the owner for my few questions. Great Beds, storage and decor with extraordinary deck space with a lot of wildlife wandering by - Fox/w kits - Deer with fawns still nursing - Black bear & cub one evening - rabbits, 3 types of squirrels + chipmunks. We are bird watchers (of the serious sort) - several Lifers even after all of these years in the wilds of Colorado. Our favorite times of the day were early am with coffee on the deck and evenings with a glass of wine watching the wildlife. Area is fairly secluded and quiet.

I heartily recommend this rental and would certainly rent again if I have the same need for space.

Owner's Response: It really warmed our hearts to see your kind words. We love the place, too! Our cleaning company maintains the food pantry in town, so they take food leftovers there but do a good job of leaving basic necessities for future guests. We are so glad you had a great vacation experience and we hope to see you again soon! Thanks. Chuck and Sarah Riehm

Pagosa Springs Lakes house

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and the house was in good order when we arrived. Pagosa is beautiful and we took advantage of the recreation center associated with the property. The setup of the sleeping arrangements was perfect for our family. We found everything we needed for our stay, right at the house. The hot tub was great for the end of days and we had a pool tournament.

Wonderful cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Liberty Ridge cabin. Everything was very clean and there was plenty of room for all of our growing family. We had spectacular views of the mountains and beautiful wildlife that literally came right up to the back deck! Also, the hot tub was so relaxing after a long day of hiking and rafting. I definitely recommend this property for any family or group looking for an amazing place to stay in Pagosa Springs.

Liberty Ridge

  • 4 of 5

This property is very well maintained and the cleanest of any properties that we have rented in the past. It is very well stocked and we really enjoyed drinking coffee on the deck and seeing the amazing views. Even though it is in a residential area it is very quiet and the trees surrounding the property make it seem isolated. The master bedroom is very comfortable and there was plenty of room for 6 adults and 4 children. I would highly recommend this property to all who are looking for a quiet, well maintained property that is also very convenient to the businesses in town.

Pagosa Springs is the closest developed town to Wolf Creek Ski Resort just 22 miles away--with the best snow in Colorado. Wolf Creek is especially great for families, with snow twice as deep and lift tickets half the price of most other Colorado resorts. Although skiing is popular in winter, high season in Pagosa is summer time with the multitude of hiking, biking, horseback riding and rafting opportunities. Don't miss our spring season when our acreage comes alive with the most beautiful mountain wildflowers--or September or early October for lovely fall foliage. You'll never run out of things to do in Pagosa! You'll find a trailhead within easy walking distance into the almost two million acres of San Juan National Forest and the wild beauty of the Weminuche Wilderness.
