About Owner/Mary Ann Camacho aka "MAC"

Yes those are my 'Turquoise Toes' and my glass of Vino enjoying Happy Hour and a delicious book by the San Juan River at Sunset! Our family lives in Miami, Fl. but my heart is always at our log home in the gorgeous San Juan Mountains and Pagosa Springs! I'm a full time realtor in Miami and have 5 wonderful children, so escaping to our hideaway is a total delight for me!

Owner/Mary Ann Camacho aka "MAC" purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Owner/Mary Ann Camacho aka "MAC" chose Pagosa Springs

I love that our home is on the San Juan River! Nothing better than to sit and relax while viewing & hearing the sounds of the San Juan flow by. You can fly fish and kayak right in your own backyard. Take a day or nightime soak in the Jacuzzi or take a nap in the hammock! No better place than our deck to sit with friends/family or read a book in solitude. There is a outdoor firepit for enjoyment or making smores after a nice BBQ dinner on the gas grill. Incredible stars at night as you enjoy the Jacuzzi or a camp fire in all 4 seasons. Skiing-Jacuzzi-hiking-jacuzzi- San Juan River- Jacuzzi- Mountain views too! Got the picture? Heaven on Earth!

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy soaking and relaxing in the Jacuzzi day or night as you gaze and enjoy the sounds of the San Juan River passing your way! I love to have an outdoor fire next to the river and sit in the gorgeous custom made Adirondack chairs either sipping my coffee or wine, depending on the time of day. There is nothing more peaceful and amazing than the constellation of stars each night as you sit out on the deck, you feel like you are in heaven! Our log home is so warm and cozy, filled with southwestern charm that just brings a warm embrace and smile to your face the minute you arrive! Memories made in our log home will for certain bring you back again and again! cheers...MAC

Wow! What an extradorinary family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so very much for having us at your beautiful cabin! This place was amazing, the owner Maryanne did not miss one detail! She has the home equipt so thoughtfully for all her guests, including the kiddos. The home was more beautiful in person than the photos depict! My family and I have 4 children and we travel frequently. I have to say this place has all homes we've stayed in beat. The memories you can make are like what you'd imagine in a dream! My children loved the tire swing on the porch, the hot tub that overlooked the beautiful river, the smores shared by the fire pit right next to the river...not to mention waking up every morning with coffee by the water. Just bliss! Also, Maryanne was so thoughtful and helpful throughout our entire stay. She always had wonderful ideas of places to visit and knew just where to go. The most helpful owner I've worked with yet! Thank you Maryanne for all of your hospitality. I felt at home and didn't want to leave, let alone get up from your super comfy beds! We will be back for sure again for more memories!

What a wonderful stay at Mac's Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends and I had an amazing experience and can't wait to return to Pagosa Springs and Mac's Hideaway. Mac was so friendly, accommodating, and had the best recommendations. The house was clean, well-stocked and furnished, warm and cozy. We had plenty of room to spread out in the living room to relax by the fire or in the kitchen to prepare and enjoy a meal. We slept soundly in the comfortable bedrooms too. The scenery around the property was spectacular. After our fun days of skiing at Wolf Creek and snowmobiling, we spent evenings either on the back deck relaxing in the large hot tub while gazing up at the stars or cozy'ed up by the fire. We recommend this house to anyone interested in finding their home away from home in Colorado.

We found our vacation dream home in MAC's Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience and can't wait to return to Pagosa Springs and MAC's Hideaway. MAC was friendly, helpful and ensured we had everything we needed during our stay. The house was clean, well-stocked and furnished, warm and cozy. We had plenty of room to spread out in the living room to relax by the fire or in the kitchen to prepare and enjoy a meal. We slept soundly in the comfortable bedrooms too. The scenery around the property was spectacular. After our fun days of skiing at Wolf Creek, building a snowman, tubing, or exploring Pagosa Springs, we spent evenings on the back deck relaxing in the large hot tub while gazing up at the stars and listening to the crackling of the outdoor fire pit and the calming sounds of the San Juan River. Those are memories we will never forget. As our three boys put it, "This place was epic!" The only bad part about the trip was when we had to leave. We recommend this house to anyone interested in finding their home away from home in Colorado.

Owner's Response: Happy New Year! You're the nicest and cutest family ever! We just loved having your share our home with us. I'm so glad your 3 boys had an "Epic Time", and that you and your husband did too! Thank you so much for the adorable snowman you built in our yard, our next guests were so happy seeing the snowman upon their arrival. I loved all the pictures you sent us of your family enjoying our home and your special vacation time in Pagosa Springs. I hope you all had some great ski times up at Wolf Creek too with all that fresh powder and glad the boys enjoyed tubing down the mountains. Next time, you'll have to spend a day snowmobiling and DogSledding which are both super fun. Maybe, you'll come back in the summertime which is a completely different experience and so fun too! It's always a real joy to hit the Hot Springs and our Jucuzzi by the San Juan River in any season! My favorite thing is soaking in our Jacuzzi with a glass of vino, an outdoor fire, while stargazing on our deck as the river flows by! Thank you again and we hope you all come back real soon. Cheers ~ Mac and family! :-)

Best Christmas Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I could not imagine a better place to stay! The cabin was clean and amazing, the view was gorgeous! The kids loved the closet full of games, the hot tub felt great after a day of skiing at Wolf Creek! We got lots of snow Christmas morning. The whole trip was absolutely perfect! My family will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you loved our home like we do! Best Christmas gift ever is knowing your entire family had an amazing Christmas at our home. I wish we had woken up to Christmas with a backdrop of falling snow at a log cabin with a tin roof on a picturesque! " Over the river and through the woods" to Mac's Hideaway we go! We try and make sure all our guests have a memorable time and desire to come back year after year to enjoy! Thank you for sharing your experience of happiness ~ Happy New Year 2017 and we hope you visit us again! Cheers ~ Mac and family!

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week and absolutely fell in love! The bed was super comfortable, which is important! The cabin was so cute and romantic! It has a very homey, warm feel. The hot tub is a nice touch with the San Juan River rushing in the background. Great amenities and well worth the rate! The owner is amazing and super sweet, very easy to deal with! She was also very informative and gave lots of recommendations! We will definitely be back again and again! Thanks, MAC! ~Mary M. & Stewart J.

Owner's Response: Wow! I'm so glad you both enjoyed our home and little piece of heaven on the San Juan river. What a beautiful review, I can feel your joy by words! It's very romantic with or without kiddos! We all love the jacuzzi too in all seasons while listening and viewing the river sounds anytime of day. Personally for me, I love soaking when the sun sets and into the night since I love stargazing from the Jacuzzi with an outdoor fire, music and my vino in hand! I'm so glad you'll both be back again and again! I've actually had 3 proposals, 2 honeymooners and at least 10 wedding anniversaries there at our home! Maybe, you'll both came back one day for all three! Lol, I hope so! Cheers and Joy ~ Mac
