Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a Colorado native, born in Boulder. My family vacations were spent hiking, fishing and skiing the Rockies. My husband's and my favorite place for activities and views is Pagosa Springs Colorado. Our vacation homes are family owned and managed. Serendipity Mountain Home is a little piece of heaven.

Why the Owner Chose Pagosa Springs:
The San Juan Mountains are the most beautiful combination of pine forest, aspens, lakes and rivers in all of Colorado. The Pagosa Springs area remains unspoiled with enough activities for everyone in the family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Best stream fishing around. Hunting, hiking, horseback rides, skiing, snow mobile rides, sitting on the porch and taking in the views in the day and the millions of stars at night.
