Pagosa Springs house description

What is your idea of a dream vacation home? If it's a cozy, private cabin situated in pretty Pagosa Springs with access to San Juan National Forest, and where you can watch sunsets over Martinez Canyon from your back covered deck, then we have the place for you. Just 30 minutes from Wolf Creek Ski Area, our canyon home is the perfect retreat for peace and quiet, beautiful views and hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

Our cabin is a custom built year old home with full gourmet kitchen. The quality of construction and level of detail sold us on this home and we believe makes our home unique from other available rentals. Radiant floor heating ensures your tootsies will always be warm, plus the charming wood burning stove adds ambiance and additional warmth. Old barnwood wainscoting encompasses the great room and dining area. Alder wood and black walnut cabinetry, heavy wooden doors and tongue and groove alder wood ceilings give our home its cozy cabin appeal. Brown leather and unique cabin-style furniture beg you to sit down with a book or a board game and relax away an evening in front of the fire. Don't forget the projection screen television/movie system that allows you to view your favorite TV shows, sporting events and movies on the big screen. Of course, music is available too through the excellent sound system with IPOD docking station, cd player and radio capability.

If you love to cook, our kitchen won't disappoint. The state of the art oven also doubles as a convection oven. All our appliances, utensils and dinnerware are shiny and new awaiting yummy dishes to be created and enjoyed. The Weber Gas Grill also provides the ability for casual cookouts on the deck and picnics under the Ponderosa pines, or dine in the dining room and gaze out at views of the canyon while you eat. And since the cabin is situated on nearly a half acre, the wooded backyard provides ample opportunity for children to play or wildlife viewing as Martinez Canyon is a migration path for elk, deer, and other types of wildlife.

After a long day of hiking or skiing, relaxing is easy in your comfortable beds with high quality bedding in all bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a king sized bed, a Jacuzzi tub and separate walk-in shower with three shower heads for ultimate relaxation. Need to check-in at work or access the internet, use the desk in the master suite and the free WI-FI access. The queen bedroom suite contains furniture beautifully crafted from pine including a queen-sized bed, with handmade nightstands, a six drawer dresser and pinewood bench. Our twin bedroom offers two cedar log beds with nightstand and easily converts into a king-size bedroom offering flexibility in sleeping arrangements.

Other activities are close by too. If fishing is your thing, then Borns Lake Reservoir is a short 10 minute walk from our home. Other nearby lakes and rivers include the San Juan River, Piedra River, Lake Capote, and the Navajo Reservoir among many others. World class golf is available at Pagosa Springs Golf Club. The 27 hole golf course is located a 10 minute drive from the cabin. In addition, we are located 5 minutes from the local supermarket, restaurants, and a yummy brewpub. Downtown Pagosa is a short 10 minute drive and offers opportunities to sample more dining, luxuriate in the hot springs, shop or take in a movie.

So, if our cozy cabin sounds like a good fit for you, please contact us and let us tell you more about it. For more pictures, please check out our website listed below.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Mike and I are residents of Austin, Texas when we aren't vacationing in Pagosa. We are proud owners of 3 Labrador Retrievers and and 3 horses. Mike works in the high tech industry and I volunteer for the Heart of Texas Lab Rescue group in Austin. We enjoy good food, music, wine, books, and travel. Our love of hiking, biking and most any outdoor activity drew us to Pagosa. We have not been disappointed and see ourselves and our dogs enjoying PS for many years to come.

              Why the Owner Chose Pagosa Springs:
              During the summer of 2009, Mike and I began seriously looking at purchasing a vacation home in Pagosa. After staring at homes for sale on-line for several months, we finally arrived in Pagosa in October and drove through many neighborhoods searching for the perfect place. We found our home by accident during a street drive by. Once we saw the cabin's quality construction, attention to detail and unique artistry, we were sold. Add to that the fact that we sit on Martinez Canyon surrounded by Ponderosa pines, enjoy a private backyard with amazing canyon and Weminuche mountain peak views and can step from the backyard straight into the San Juan National Forest....we were sold. Add to that, Borns Lake is a short 10 minute walk from our home, and Pagosa Brewing Company, Eddie's Uptown Grille, Chavolos Mexican Restaurant and City Market are all within a 10 minute drive.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              For me, the most unique aspect of our home, aside from the artistry inside, is the covered back porch, large private backyard, and ability to hike right into the San Juan National Forest from the trailhead located just yards from the back door.
