About the property

New Owner- Same Great Property and Amenities. Bookings at: Homeaway #4638177

This property was sold to a new owner on 25 May 2017. Everything is the same. The two latest reviews (dated July, 2017) took place after the change in ownership. To book this home, please go to Homeaway listing #4638177.

Green Briar Ranch is located on one of the finest view lots in Colorado, offering a breathtaking view of the San Juan Mountains. Situated on a large parcel, there are no other homes within several hundred feet, ensuring a peaceful, restful vacation experience. Solitude and serenity abound on a forested lot with many tall pines and unobstructed views of the 12,000 foot peaks of the San Juan Mountains.

People come to the Pagosa Springs area of southwest Colorado for blue sky, clean air and some of the best recreational opportunities in the United States. Our area has an amazing variety of things to keep a family busy and happy in the great outdoors. You can ski, ride, golf, raft, hike, climb, hunt and fish all day long and then retreat to your chalet in the woods to RELAX.

Everybody wants to be in the great outdoors at Green Briar Ranch. Two spacious decks provide sensational views of the San Juan Mountains. Spend evenings under the amazing stars, making memories around the firepit on the upper deck or enjoy the hot tub and serene view of Pagosa Peak from the covered lower deck, rain or shine! The upper deck has a large propane BBQ and the lower deck offers a charcoal BBQ.

When it is time to go inside, you will be happy you chose to spend your vacation at Green Briar Ranch! The home is beautifully furnished and has ample seating areas for both relaxed conversation and spirited family game time.

Even when the temperature is below zero (-18C) in January, you can enjoy the gas fireplace in the great room and stay warm throughout the well-insulated home. The driveway is professionally plowed when snowfall exceeds 6 inches (15cm).

You can make the choice to be completely unplugged or take advantage of large, flat screen TV's with Direct TV service, and a large selection of DVDs. The home has high speed (25 Mbps), wireless internet, as well as two PC's, enabling our guests to stay in touch with family, friends and perhaps even the office. A land-line telephone ensures connectivity with the outside world, and unlimited free calling anywhere in North America.

When it is time to sleep, you will appreciate the high quality beds, mattresses and bedding which will provide the perfect night’s sleep, in the serenity of our forest chalet. There are four bedrooms, a king in the master and queens in the three other bedrooms.

The beautiful and well-appointed master suite features a king size bed, master bath and walk-in closet. The master is the only bedroom located on the upper level, providing both privacy and an adjoining loft that features an amazing view of the San Juan Mountains.

The main level features two bedrooms, as well as a full bath, kitchen, dining area and great room. Floor to ceiling windows and a cozy, gas fireplace provide a comfortable place to enjoy the mountain views while spending time with family.

The bottom level offers a separate apartment that features its own kitchen, a full bath, a bedroom with queen size bed, and a living room with pull-out sofa. Sliding doors open from the apartment to the lower deck and the whirlpool tub. The apartment, with its own entrance, can either provide privacy for a couple that wants to get away from the crowd, or a place that the kids can call their own, something 'tweens' and teens really appreciate!

Besides eight sleeping spots in the four bedrooms, a pull-out sofa in the living room of the downstairs apartment sleeps two, and a futon in the upper level loft area also sleeps two.

For family dining, there is a main dining table that seats eight; and a folding table and chairs seat an additional four. Outside, there is a table with seating for four on the lower, rain-protected deck. The upper deck features an additional table that seats four, as well as six seats that ring the firepit.

Green Briar Ranch has an on-demand hot water heater that provides unlimited hot water, something you will really appreciate if you are the last guest to get out of bed!

Green Briar Ranch is a short 10 minute drive to the heart of Pagosa Springs, where you can get just about anything you would need. Nearby are forest trails, lakes, a golf course, a full service supermarket, and Pagosa Brewery, home of the coldest beer in the Four Corners area!

For the skiers, the 32 mile drive to Wolf Creek is two lanes in each direction the entire way up the mountain. Skiers that want to try 'Purgatory' can be there in less than 90 minutes from our door.

Green Briar Ranch utilizes a professional cleaning service that will ensure the home is ready for your family, and that it is cleaned up to the high standard you expect from a first class resort. It is essential that our guests observe the 10 AM checkout time so the cleaning service can prepare the home for our next guests, who are frequently arriving the same day.

Located at an elevation of 7200 feet, Green Briar Ranch has everything you’ve been looking for in a vacation home. One hour east of Durango Airport, Pagosa Springs is a four season recreation-lover's dream holiday spot. Wolf Creek Ski Area, world renowned for its snow, is a 32 miles (50 Km) drive from Green Briar Ranch. Several streams and rivers flow through the area offering fly fishing, canoeing, kayaking and whitewater rafting options. The San Juan National Forest is a five minute walk from the house and offers year-round recreation options including, hiking, snowshoeing, horseback riding, cross country skiing and snowmobiling.

Green Briar Ranch has a minimum stay of three nights. We do not charge a Security Deposit in advance of your stay, and there is no fee for credit cards. Please check the calendar for availability before sending your reservation request.

Beautiful and well taken care of home!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic. The online pictures don't give it justice. Everything we needed was there. The linens, towels, pots and pans were all high quality. Sitting on either deck gives you a beautiful view of the mountains. Plenty of space, comfortable beds, and everything was so clean. I could go on and on. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for equestrian vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people and 6 horses for a 2 week stay. The accommodation were perfect the downstairs apt was great for the kids and the fenced in property worked out very nicely for the horses. View and location is hard to beat n Pogosa Springs. It was also nice to have walking access to the trails. I highly recommend this property

Beautiful views, comfortable beds, plenty of room to be together or spread out. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious and situated in an area that feels secluded although Pagosa Blvd is right in front. The entire Southwest of the US had a heatwave the week we were there, so no AC in the house was a bit uncomfortable. But I am told that the high temps were highly unusual for the area. The nights were quiet, the mornings on the deck reading were wonderful. The towels feel brand new! Kitchen stocked! There is even a crock pot! Most impressive was the customer service we received from the new owner. Any questions or concerns were handled promptly. This owner takes care of you! We had exactly the support you would want when you are far from home. One heads up: the apartment downstairs is wonderful, but there is no acess to it from inside the house. You have to go outside and through a separate door. Perfect for another couple traveling with you or older kids. All in all, this is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in during our many Colorado vacations.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very nice words about Green Briar Ranch! Our warmest month (July) has an average high temperature of 83F (28C). Fortunately, the temperature drops rapidly at night and the average July low is 45F (7C). When we do have unseasonably warm days, we appreciate the ceiling fans in the bedrooms!

Great property for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

The home was loaded with all the extras! Hot tub,spa tub, video game systems.... you name it! Great location with plenty of acreage for everyone to get outside and have some fun in the snow. Had snow plow service daily which was a tremendous help. We had a couple of questions while there and got immediate feedback from either Steve or Doug. A great venue for both winter or summer family or business retreats. Both kitchens (yes there were two!) were well stocked and ready to go. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out since there were two connected living quarters. Family gatherings to watch the game on the 55" flat screen or a rousing game of poker in the central family room were perfect.

We will look forward to our next trip to Pagosa Springs and would definitely stay here again. Thanks again Steve for your outstanding hospitality.
