About Jack Buhrow

Our family consists of seven children. My closest brother and his family and ours have been meeting together in Pagosa Springs for over twelve years. We are now able to sometimes meet two times a year. We always look forward to this time together!

Jack Buhrow purchased this house in 2007

Why Jack Buhrow chose San Juan River Village

Some of the most beautiful country in Colorado. Wonderful skiing without the big crowds or long lift lines. Dependable snowfall. Fantastic whitewater rafting and kayaking. Genuinely nice people. Thousands of acres of wilderness areas. Abundant wildlife. Great fishing. A slightly slower paced lifestyle.

What makes this house unique

Peace - a focus on family and having fun together - the sheer beauty of the country from the decks almost demands introspection as well as stimulating a desire to hike to take in all of the natural beauty of this wonderful area. With our new addition, an option of the original 4 or now up to 6 bedrooms (for extra space). The extra space if desired, adds $50/nt.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Livingstons expressed their love for this home in two ways; first, they said it was probably the nicest home they had ever rented, and second they are trying to buy a lot so they can have the builder (TLC Builders) build the same home for them (Whisper Creek Log Homes). There are multiple comments (similar) in our guest register at our home.

Even Better than the Photos, Beautiful, Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful, upscale log cabin provided a great vacation for our group this past week. Even at 10 occupants we were very comfortable in this very spacious home with all the full baths, big bedrooms and living spaces. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking tools and everything we needed for dining/service. The home theatre is state of the art - better than most paid cinema experiences and the hot tub was great to come home to after our great ski days at Wolf Creek. We'll definitely be back and we'll be recommending this perfect location that is the closest you'll find to the ski area. Thank you Jack for a great experience!

Fabulous Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home offered our group a fabulous Spring Break! The perfect home for my husband, myself, our teenage son and his 3 friends. We have been coming to Pagosa Springs for years and it never disappoints - especially when staying in this home! The skiing was some of the best we have had and the boys all loved having the hot tub, pool table, theatre room and extra space to spread out at the end of a FULL day! This cabin felt like home as soon as you walk in and the accomdations are very spacious & comfortable. I can't say enough about this place (and hate to sing its' praises too much, as we want to be able to return easily!!), the owner was very helpful with directions, tips and answering questions. Will DEFINITELY return. Thanks again for sharing your home with us!

Great Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

Great vacation house for the whole family. My wife, two brothers and I loved the house. Plenty of room to stretch our legs and felt like being at home. The pool table, hot tub and theater room are a plus. The house is closely situated to Pagosa Springs and Treasure Falls. The owners are extremly accomadating and helpful. Look forward to our next visit soon!

Owner's Response: We're so glad that people enjoy our home. We recently decided to invest in enclosing the garage to make two more bedrooms. This will make 6 bedrooms plus the Murphy bed in the theater. This should help accommodate some families our individuals that don't want to share a bed. There will be a slight fee increase for those that need the extra space.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, solid rental, near town and near skiing. Enjoyed all of the sights, sounds and fun Pagosa has to offer. Pagosa Brewery I highly recommend for those who like micro beers--maybe one of the best in the country. Hope to return again someday.

An Unforgettable Christmas!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home offered us a Christmas experience that we will never forget. Skiing, Snowmobiling, Shopping and site seeing were all just a few minutes away and the tremendous amount of snowfall (60 +inches in a week) was a treat for a bunch of Texans. This cabin feels like home as soon as you walk in and the accomdations are very comfortable. The Hot Tub and Home Theater are perfect after a long day of playing in the snow. I can't say enough about this place and will definately return. Thanks again.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning fee (6 bedrooms $175
Refundable damage deposit $500
Discounts available $0
Tax Rate 8.8%

Security codes and entrance methods will be given the week before your stay (phone call) as codes are changed periodically. In winter 4-wheel drive is not necessary except sometimes for entrance into the garages. Garage has now been eliminated for the time being. A front pullout area is available if necessary. Snow removal is done daily as required. Spa may require a tablespoon of shock at the end of daily use (close to spa). Home is 5 miles closer to Wolf Creek than Pagosa Springs - off highway #160. The home is visible on a ridge overlooking highway #160 at 48 Royal View Court - off Harman Ave. in San Juan River Village. Activities abound - winter and summer. There is no ski in-out housing at Wolf Creek but rates are much more reasonable than many other ski resorts and the skiing and lifts are comparable. Summer hiking and activities in the cool summer air (white water rafting - tubing - fishing etc.) are as good as you will find anywhere in the "Rockies". Our home has proved to be very popular. The large theater (seats 12 in leather recliners) has been loved by young and old. Please advise whether you want 4 or 6 bedrooms (extra $50/nt) for unlocking +$25 extra cleaning fee. The rates quoted can be discounted for 6 days or more bookings ($100 - $200), and if you only want the 4 bedrooms, I can refund $50/nt. from your fee.
