About the property

4 BR, 3.5 BA, sleeps maximum of 13

Pine Ridge Retreat is a large beautiful, custom mountain home set amongst tall pine trees. The location is ideal at 8000 feet with easy access to the best that Pagosa Springs has to offer. We're 6 miles East of Pagosa, 18 miles from Wolf Creek! You can enjoy stunning views while relaxing in the hot tub or barbecue on the gas grill on our large sunny deck. This tastefully decorated home has all of the comforts and conveniences of your own home. The great room has a vaulted ceiling, a built in gas fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and dining for 12. There are 3 full floors including a separate living area in the den with 2 futons, providing plenty of room for everyone to have privacy. Other amenities include a large master shower, a ping pong table, games and videos. We have 4 TVs in the house, including flat screens in the great room and master, with DVD players, 3 of them have dish network satellite TV service. We offer free internet with a laptop provided.

Please check the calendar before sending your request. It is accurate. Rates are seasonal. During peak times, there is a 5 night minimum. Christmas 2018 rates are $450/night.

Located between Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek Pass, 1 mile above the highway and river, in San Juan River Resort, the closest neighborhood to Wolf Creek Ski Area. Many other properties are on the other side of town and will take you 20-30 minutes longer to drive to the ski area. Get first chair while others are in the town traffic.

The elevation closer to the mountains and forests keep the retreat cooler than some other Pagosa areas in the summer. There are several wonderful hot springs spas in Pagosa.

The world's deepest measured hot spring is a fitting title for what can arguably be called the world's most beautiful hot spring resorts. 

Pagosa Springs has some of the best fishing in Colorado, offering fisherman (and women) a variety of streams, rivers and mountain lakes to drop a line. There's also beautiful golfing at Pagosa Springs Golf Club and lots of fun to be had on the San Juan River!

A small pond is visible from the deck and is a 5 minute walk away. There is a large covered picnic area there with tables and grills.

The gravel road in the subdivision is well maintained but during winter good snow vehicles are often necessary as well as for Wolf Creek Pass. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Taking walks or bike rides right out of the front door are very pleasant. There is also close access to national forest trails.

Our home is personally owned and managed. We take pride in maintaining the highest quality of accommodations and all amenities. The home is always very clean and well stocked with supplies and plenty of quality linens. The 5 person hot tub is clean and well maintained. All mattresses were replaced in 2018, we now have 2 King beds!

Why Stella Rafalo chose San Juan River Village

The serene mountain setting is heavenly. There are a multitude of year round outdoor activities to enjoy right in the back yard. The location is ideal, San Juan River Resort is a wonderful neighborhood. Being on the East side of Pagosa Springs makes driving to the ski area or town very convenient with no traffic. In the summer, the higher elevation and pine forest make it cool and pleasant. While there are other houses close by, the way our house is situated above the garage makes it feel private with great views from any window. The neighborhood is quiet, many of the nearby homes are rarely occupied.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We vacationed at Pine Ridge Retreat with my brother and his family. We loved the hot tub and the views. We enjoyed the big deck and having enough room for everyone at the table. My kids loved the ping pong table. We will definitely stay at the house again.

Great house and location. Would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful for our family of seven adults. It was well stocked, clean, roomy and in a great location. The hot tub was wonderful after a day of skiing. Would stay there again. Saw wild turkeys from the windows. Has hugh kitchen table for eating and playing games. Stella had thougt of everything and provided detailed instructions. Only issue encountered was that there was no ESPN to watch the college football playoffs. Although We purchased a Chromecast device and was able to watch all the games.

Perfect For Our Family

  • 5 of 5

8 Adults , 2 teens , 2 kids - a toddler and a baby stayed 7 nights and no one one wanted to leave! So much room for everyone. The house has everything !!

We loved Pagosa Springs !

The riverfront Pirate Park near the hot springs was a great place to hang while everyone enjoyed the playground and the river ! We drove to Durango twice for the train and the Bar D dinner / show! And our family hike was to Treasure Falls!

Thanks so much !
