This three-bedroom home is nestled in the hills outside of Pagosa Springs on a heavily forested site bordering 100,000 acres of Native American land, with stunning views of the 13,000 ft peaks of the San Juan Mountains. Convenient to the hot mineral baths of Pagosa Springs, as well as a short drive to Chimney Rock Monument and just 45 minutes from Durango, with the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings a bit farther west; this mountain hideaway gives you the best of both worlds: Durango - the gateway to the western slopes of the Rockies and Pagosa, with it's proximity to hiking along the Continental Divide and it's world-famous mineral springs (Pagosa means 'healing waters' in the language of the region's Southern Ute Indians). The pet-friendly, three-bedroom, two-bath set up is perfect for families, with amenities that include: a spacious kitchen/dining area, washer, dryer, cell phone coverage, satellite TV and internet.
I am a retired musician and arts administrator. My wife, a photographer and psychotherapist and I have have traveled extensively in Europe, Central America, South America and Asia. We call Santa Fe, home; though we spend a lot of time at the cabin.
We are co-owners of this mountain home with a professional peer of my wife - another psychotherapist, who built this home at this unique location because of the stunning views and access to so many amenities.
We are close to so many things that we love: Chimney Rock, Durango and Mesa Verde to the west and just down the hill to Pagosa and it's wonder springs, spa and excellent dining.
The pictures do not do this property justice. It is totally secluded. You can't see anyone or anything except for the beautiful view out back. My wife and I stayed here for a short getaway and it was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked and ready to use. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice. Everything was clean and you can tell the owners take pride in their vacation rental.
Things to know. It's a long trip into town over rough mountain roads. I like them, some do not. Make a list do you don't forget anything! Water is provided via a cistern that has to be refilled. Not a problem just be mindful not to let water run unnecessarily. The internet connection is only for the notebook in Bedroom 3. We hotspotted our phones (Verizon) so we could have internet in the other areas of the house. There is no dishwasher, which was not a problem for us. We visited the Hot Springs and had dinner in town one day. Lot's to choose from. The inner tubes on the river looked fun.
We heartily recommend this rental property and would definitely stay here again. Tom stayed in touch with us as we drove in from Texas. It was very short notice on our part (Can we rent your cabin,,,tomorrow?) and Tom came through. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We were sad to have to leave after only 4 nights.
Our stay at the Blue Moose Cabin was incredible! The pictures truly do not do justice for the amazing view that is visible from not only one but both sides of the house! It was very clean and spacious with a wonderful deck for BBQ and drinking your morning coffee. There was also a great selection of books. I haven't read in years but found myself sitting at the edge of the yard enjoying my surroundings with a good book in my hand. The cabin is close enough to town to enjoy Pagosa, but very well hidden at the tip top of the mountain. We had a wonderful time and hope to be back
A well maintained and comfortable home. The home is located On the mesa east and south of Pagosa Spriings. The view of the mountains to the north spectacular. We saw wild turkeys and deer every day. One day we saw about 30 turkey off the back deck. We really enjoyed our stay!
Blue Moose Cabin was a perfect vacation home for our family. The location at the top of the mountain offers scenic views and a true feeling of getting away. It's location is great for spending time in Pagosa Springs or day trips to Durango or hiking trials. And, what a pleasant surprise to see Chimney Rock on the drive up to the cabin! We enjoyed watching the local wildlife around the cabin (turkeys, deer, and a neighborhood cat but no Moose). The cabin had all the amenities for a comfortable visit . Tom was very proactive in contacting us prior to and during our stay. His good humor was surely tested when our pet caused some damage but he was very understanding and gracious. Our family would love to return to this cabin.
Very clean,newly remodeled, wonderful home. Just beautiful nature including wild turkeys that we heard a lot, but never seen them. (probably, I should if awoken earlier). It's 7 miles from the highway, I think it's worth the drive, to be out in the mountains by yourself. GREAT PIECE OF PROPERTY.
The cabin was everything we hoped for. Clean bright, thoughtfully prepared in each room for an extended stay. Communication with the owner was excellent and resources for enjoying the area were made readily available. We appreciated the Wi-Fi access and wished in retrospect that we had brought our family dog. We loved feeling like we were "on top of a mountain." There was room to relax and it was extremely comfortable.
