Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Jim was raised not far from Pagosa Springs, in lovely Santa Fe, New Mexico, and hiked the Weminuche as a kid. His spouse is an East Coast transplant from Conn., who fell in love with Pagosa upon her first visit. Our home in the Pines of Pagosa is our dream-come-true-get-away from the bustle and noise of city life: where our children can watch Humming-birds feeding, the deer visiting in their own backyard or the occasional bear; it's where they can experience great fishing (our daughter holds a record of 16 fish at one sitting) not far from the house. In essence, a place where wonderful memories are being made to last a lifetime..............
Why the Owner Chose Pagosa Springs:
We love the outdoors and Pagosa Springs has wonderful year-round adventure opportunities. Peace and quiet are often interrupted by the wind chimes hanging off the Ponderosas. Humming birds come to visit whenever we fill their feeders.....Occasional deer graze amongst the ponderosas (we have a salt-lick by the rocks) and the pure mountain air is a treat as one just relaxes in the rock-strewn yard (the kids were so excited to find some fossilized rocks in one of the boulders out the back!!), each visit brings new wonders!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Plentiful powder and first to open Colorado ski resort at Wolf Creek Ski area in the winter, feisty trout in the summer, hiking among the largest US Wilderness, some of Colorado's most beautiful fall colors, water falls and mountain scenery. Year-round soaking in Pagosa Hot Springs with full spa options for complete relaxation.
