This recently remodeled two bedroom home is truly one of a kind. It is both modern and rustic with all of the conveniences that you love tucked into a perfectly charming package. Built in the 1890's, this home is an enduring piece of Pagosa's colorful cultural history and a great home base for exploring the amazing Upper San Juan Basin.
We provide all of the amenities that you expect to find in a vacation rental, plus some. Our fully stocked kitchen includes things like basic spices and oils, coffee filters, garbage bags, dish soap, dishwashing detergent etc. The dining table seats eight. Amenities for entertainment include a flat screen television (with cable) in both the living room and the dining room, a dvd player, iPod/iPhone charging/speaker dock w/ CD player, and there is of course wifi on site. We provide plenty of fluffy towels, and a well stocked laundry room too.
The kitchen is chock-full of craftsmanship. The cabinet frames were welded from steel and fit with boxes from a local cabinetmaker. The countertops are concrete, easy to clean and easy to work on. There are also undercabinet lights, a gas range and oven, an over sized stainless sink and all of the cookware, servingware, small appliances and gadgets that make cooking easy and fun!
The dining room / bar is one of my favorite rooms in the house. The north wall is made of stone, with steel support beams, there is a beautiful red brick floor and the south wall is the original exterior siding. Wide, locally milled lumber; one of the beautiful details from the original construction that we were able to save. Combined with some tech lighting, an amazing custom built steel and glass chandelier, beautiful handmade furniture and a flat screen television, it's the perfect combination of old and new.
Upstairs you will find two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and across the hallway there is another bedroom with a queen sized bed. Both rooms have ample closet space. Downstairs is the bunk room, with a queen sized sofa sleeper and a twin sized muprhy bed. The house will sleep a total of seven.
There is one full bathroom outfitted with a large soaking tub / shower combination and heated concrete floors. The on demand water heater (endless hot water!) and excellent water pressure are definitely worthy of special mention.
Out the back door you will find a flagstone patio, fenced on three sides for privacy. There is a private six person hot tub, a full sized gas grill and plenty of seating. You will be amazed at the vibrant night sky views, even from downtown.
The 70amp Clipper Creek charging station speaks for itself. It is adjacent to the property and available to the public for use, but only steps away.
Sustainability was the goal in the remodel of this home. We sourced our materials locally, quite often reclaiming them ourselves, and we found creative ways to use materials that we already had. We installed primarily LED lighting and we buy renewable energy from our local electric co-op. None of these things will affect your experience in staying here, unless they matter to you. And in that case, you can rest easy knowing that you are supporting local Pagosa Springs businesses, energy conservation and mindful building practices. We also live here in Pagosa Springs and are more than happy to be available to you!
