Pagosa Springs house description

Heaven on Earth Lodge represents the dreams that everyone has about Colorado. This 5,000 square foot cabin/lodge sits on 36 fenced acres surrounded by 1000's of acres of San Juan National Forest in your back yard. Upper Rio Blanco River runs nearby the property for fabulous fly fishing. This home has large decks surrounding the property with great views from every angle. If you choose to leave Heaven on Earth Lodge, all the area attractions are less than 5 minutes from the property. Wolf Creek ski lodge is a quick right turn off Highway 84 bypassing all the Pagosa Springs downtown traffic and only takes 20 minutes till you're at the lifts.

Heaven on Earth Lodge is newly remodeled and beautifully furnished. You and your family will enjoy every luxury detail from luxury bedding to flat screen TV's. Optional maid service and snow plowing is available. We want to insure our guests have a wonderful vacation experience, truly a home away from home. The property has a fenced yard, private entrance, and horse facilities. It is the perfect location for family vacations/reunion/weddings/hunters; a true Colorado mountain experience.

Only a few minutes to the largest world class Hot Springs, unique shopping, skiing and dining. Pagosa Springs is home of Parelli Horsemanship, Horse Drawn Sleighs, Horse Back Riding, Chuck Wagon Suppers, Red Ruder Rodeo every Thursday Eve in the summer months, ski/snowboard/snowmobile at Wolf Creek Ski Area on the top of the Continental Divide which boast the most snow in Colorado, several rivers/lakes to choose your water sport, 36 hole golf course, hundreds of hiking/biking trails, hot air balloon fest, 4 Corners Folk Festival, Bluegrass Fest, the Best 4th of July Parade in the area & Fabulous Fireworks, Music in the Mountains, Community Theater, Wildlife Park, Antique/Hot Rod Car Shows, Bike Tour of Colorado, just to name a few activities in the area. Fresh clean air, Pagosa Springs offers something for everyone whether you want to be an adventurist or just relax.

You wake up to panoramic views of the mountains. Heaven on Earth Lodge has two levels of living areas. The middle floor is the gorgeous open living room and kitchen area, where all can gather for fun family time. There is a beautiful rock wood burning fireplace that warms the room while taking in a breath taking view. Also, on this floor are two bedrooms with queen size beds. One of the bedrooms has it's own private bath. Adjoining the other bedroom is a classic mountain style tiled bath off the hall. As you stroll down the wood stairs to the kids room you'll find two large double/twin beds along with a futon couch/bed nestled in front of a wood burning stove. With only a hallway away, you'll find another cozy full queen size bedroom with a rock fireplace and an old fashioned wood burning stove. The downstairs does have a full shower and bath area. The third floor is closed for owner storage.

A covered walk way 10 ft away leads you to a full efficiency two bedroom garage apartment with one queen size bed in one bedroom and a twin bunk bed in the other bedroom. This little apartment has a full kitchen and living room area along with a full bath and shower room. This apartment has a flat screen TV with Satellite. It is perfect for those who want a little privacy from the larger group. This apartment can be rented out separately from the main house for hunters or a family. If you are renting only the apartment, the house will remain vacant.

The play room is equipped with a large ping pong table, foosball table and an area with flat screen TV dedicated to WII games. This room is great for entertaining the entire family without the noise factor affecting those who want to sleep, if those playful souls want to stay up late into the night.

If you are looking for relaxation after a long day of hiking or skiing, there is a six person hot tub on the deck that over looks the mountains. If you want to experience the ultimate comfort of Colorado, you have to grab a glass of wine and watch the sun go down while soaking on the deck in the hot tub.

There is a double car attached garage. The lodge is surrounded by wild flowers, aspens, large beautiful Colorado pines and the San Juan mountains. This property is easily accessible during the snowy months and has that wilderness feeling because you don't see any neighbors. This is the kind of property you tell your friends about and keep reserving for years.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: My wife and I live in San Antonio, Texas. I am a writer, producer and entrepreneur. This is a dream property that was quite honestly a gift from God. All of my life we wanted a place to escape to. We wanted a home that looked like someplace in a magazine------we found it!!!! The usual response when people drive up is 'Oh my God, this place is gorgeous!!!' Our greatest joy in having the 'Dream Ranch' is that we love to share it and bring joy to others who desperately need a get away to remember.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pagosa Springs:
                      We chose Pagosa Springs quite honestly because of the great reputation it has for maintaining that small mountain town feel and the beauty of the area. You don't have to drive another 6-8 hours north to find majestic mountains and great skiing and hiking. It's all right here in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This property stands out above most all of the other rentals on the market for several reasons. It sets on 36 secluded acres, yet it's only 5 minutes from downtown. If would be very difficult to find a property with more majestic views that what this home has. We enjoy looking down in the pastures at the Clysdale horses grazing in the field. We relish the moments of soaking in the hot tub in the late afternoon after a long day of hiking in the mountains. Another of our favorite things to do is to curl up on the deck gazing at the mountains with a good book in our hands with a big glass of lemon tea. It just doesn't get any better. If you want to experience relaxation it's here, if you want to experience activity it's here, either way your vacation will be one you won't forget.
