About the Property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Our ranch is uniquely located on 45 acres at the end of Cabezon Canyon, beautifully situated with a view of Chimney Rock and the San Juan mountains. You will most likely see all sorts of wildlife such as deer, elk, bobcats, wild turkey, coyotes, even bears - all dependent on which season of the year you come to vacation.

There is ample room for you to bring your horses and parking for your trailer. We have fenced pasture and run-in stalls for your horses, including hay and water for an additional fee. You can ride on our land, venture into National Forest, or trailer your horses to numerous nearby riding trails into the millions of acres of National Forest surrounding the Pagosa area. The Parelli Natural Horsemanship Center is only a 20 min. drive north. Navajo Lake is a 20 min. drive south if you want to boat, fish or swim. World class fishing on the Piedra River or the San Juan River is also minutes away.

The town of Pagosa Springs, 25 minutes away, has shopping, restaurants, an historic theatre, a museum, and the famous Hot Springs and Spa located on the San Juan River. In every season there is something fun to do in our area - fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, horse-back riding, river rafting, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing - the list goes on! Everything is within five to 30 minutes away. Wolf Creek Ski Resort is approx. 50 miles to the east and Durango Mtn. Resort is approx. 60 miles to the west. Durango airport is less than an hour drive. Come and enjoy the mountains!
