About The Owner

This is our best self-portrait ever! We were out traipsing thru the Colorado countryside and found the perfect spot to capture the fun we were having. We are native Texans but we truly enjoy Colorado.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Pagosa Springs

The Lazy Bear is centrally located between our Texas and California relatives - it's been our family cabin for over ten years and we've had a ton of fun. We believe that you will love it as much as we do - the Lazy Bear is a very comfortable place to be.

What makes this cabin unique

You will find that all seasons offer something special at the cabin. Whether you are skiing, golfing, fishing, hiking, sightseeing, or just soaking in the mineral springs there're always wonderful memories to be created. Don't miss the zillion stars you can see while enjoying the firepit at night!

Repeat Customer, won't stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my parents have made the trip to Pagosa Springs for the past 3 years in a row, and will make it a FOURTH in winter 2016. Each time we have stayed at Lazy Bear and can't say enough wonderful things about it! We just absolutely won't stay anywhere else now, and have actually decided to extend our stay to a full week because it's just that great. The cabin is perfectly situated along the river, and whether its partly thawed and you can hear the water flowing, or frozen over, the view is beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice. The cabin is fully stocked with everything you will need to do from cooking, roasting marshmallows, taking a dip in the hot tub, or snow tubing. The cabin has a warm, cozy, family friendly feeling that is created by the Beach Family's attention to detail in the accomodations they provide to their guests. This really does feel like a second home. The location is close to town, and not too far away from the activities at Wolf Creek such as snow mobiling, skiing and hiking Treasure Falls. There is a small pond across from the cabin and there are nicely plowed roads that are great for a morning jog in the crisp fresh air. We have enjoyed using the firepit and hot tub almost every evening we stay there. I really can not think of one thing I would improve or change about our stays here unless the owners would like to sell me their cabin!! ;) It is definitely a little piece of heaven.

Wonderful comfort, amazing location, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The Lazy Bear is amazing! We relaxed in the hot tub while listening to the beautiful babble of the river. We grilled outside and cooked in the well stocked kitchen. We even found a slow cooker to make pot roast waiting for us after a day of fishing. We awoke to find mule deer grazing just off the deck.

Everything is supplied. I made my usual run to the grocery store before we got there for my favorite toilet paper and found a cabinet stuffed full of the exact same brand when we arrived!

We loved the Lazy Bear so much we are already planning a visit next year and hopefully again this fall. There are things to do in the area absolutely year round we can't wait to explore Pagosa Springs from our new cozy home base!

A wonderful cabin for Wolf Creek Pass skiers

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a terrific and very snowy ski trip that included

11 days at the Lazy Bear. The cabin was everything it was advertised to

be. Part of our enjoyment comes from home cooked breakfasts and dinners.

Scones, biscuits, latkes, omelets, cornmeal pancakes ... a Mexican casserole,

hearty stews and pastas, etc., all comfortably prepared in a well supplied

kitchen. We turn the thermostats way down for sleep, then bring up the

flames of the gas operated Franklin heater while enjoying a cozy early

morning cuppa'. So nice to have a roomy garage to keep the snow off

of the car. The Lazy Bear is a convenient location, accessible to the slopes

and Pagosa Springs. It was a bit too cold and snowy for us to take advantage

of the spa, but there was a clear path and heavy robes had we been a wee

more adventuresome. Our hosts could not have been nicer. Thank you!!!!

Lazy Bear is the Bomb!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful trip! The Lazy Bear was everything you could ever want. The owners have more comforts in this home than you could imagine. It really made us feel at home. The warm cozy robes were great to have every morning while sitting on the deck for morning coffee, looking at the San Juan river and enjoying the scenic views. The town is a gem, great restaurants and nice shops. We did so much - hot air balloon ride, hiking to the falls, fishing in the river - even learned how to fly fish! We took a train ride from Silverton to Durango. Silverton's a great town. You feel like you're in a John Wayne movie. This whole trip was fantastic, from the lodging at the Lazy Bear to the scenery. Can't wait to go back! Thanks for a wonderful place to stay.

Awesome Cabin, Awesome Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in May and when we arrived it totally felt like home. This cabin has everything you need. The owners think about EVERYTHING, I mean everything. It is super well stocked. This is by far one of the best cabins we stayed at, and we hope on returning next year! The hot tub broke while we were there but other than that it was amazing. There was a storm the last day of check out and the owners called us to make sure we were safe and to let us know that we can stayed until the storm passed by.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving for our 10 day stay,we instantly felt comfortable and at "home". There isn't one little detail missed by the owners of this home. Everything was comfortable and welcoming. We originally had a lot more on our to do list but found ourselves relaxing by the river most afternoons/evenings. We just didn't want to leave. Beds were beyond comfortable,seating downstairs was comfortable,outdoor seating was comfortable.....I think you see where I'm going with this. We had 1 small problem with the hot tub but it was fixed less than 24hrs after contacting the owners. Speaking of the owners,they are friendly and I feel they truly want you to enjoy their home. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I will definitely be looking up the Lazy Bear on our next trip to Pagosa Springs. It is our new go to place!!
