About the property

San Juan Riverfront log home with 2 acres, 3 bedrooms, loft bedroom and 2 baths.

Mac's Hideaway a log cabin home is the perfect cozy abode for a romantic and charming getaway or a family and friends holiday! This cozy home sits directly on the banks of the soothing San Juan River with 2 acres at the end of the Cul de Sac, and the San Juan National Forest across the river, so quiet and private. Our home located in the San Juan River Village has the perfect Pagosa location on the west side of Pagosa which is less populated and feels more like the real Colorado. The drive to town and the Hot Springs is only 6 miles or 10 minutes. Wolf Creek Ski Resort is just 16 miles or 20 minutes away and this is the most gorgeous and breathtaking drive in Pagosa! We are the nearest community to Wolf Creek Ski Resort and the only community on the river.

WOLF CREEK is known for having the "Most Snow in Colorado, Year after Year!" and the staff is great there as well as the skiing/snowboarding.

I must admit WC has the best Green Chili Burgers too, along with incredible powder and skiing all at very reasonable costs for both skiing and food.

View the SJ river from your beautiful private deck and log home, while listening to the calming and rapid sounds, as the river rushes by you. Relax in the bubbling Jacuzzi for 6, read a book while swaying in the hammock, fly fish, tube and kayak right in your own backyard.

Down the road in our neighborhood there is also a private stocked trout pond called Rainbow Pond for the young at heart to paddle boat, fish, kayak, float in a tube and paddle board. Fishing for Trout there is fun for kids! So walk down the road with your kids, their poles and experience old times like "Andy of Mayberry!"

Regardless of what you do, you will discover the peace of nature at MAC'S HIDEAWAY which is surrounded by 3 million acres of the San Juan National Forest.

We provide high speed wireless Internet, and Direct TV. There is Sony flat screen TV/ CD player/DVR and Sirius radio in the living room with Bose speakers inside and out! There is also a small flat screen TV/DVR in the master bedroom.

Our home is completely furnished with loads of Southwest charm and warmth. Beautiful antiques, art, and handcrafted custom made log furniture, makes this home picture perfect! It has all amenities, washer, dryer, antique reproduction stove and oven, microwave and small appliances. It has an antique wood burning stove fireplace, circa 1890, which can be used for burning wood in the right season.

The Master bedroom has a queen bed, sitting area with a small couch and full bath with a antique claw foot tub and shower with 2 sinks.

There is exterior loft outside the master bedroom door with a full size bed, dresser and nightstand. The loft is perfect for kids or adults to sleep and especially a pleasant spot for taking a nap or reading a book too! This is one of my favorite inside places to relax with the skylight to see the stars and a nice widow overlooking the river.

The second bedroom downstairs called the "Trout Room" has a queen custom made bed of Aspen and a sitting area with grandfather bamboo love seat.

The third bedroom downstairs called the "Bear, Deer and Elk Room" has a custom aspen log bunk bed with the double bed on the bottom and a twin bed on top! Children especially love this room but it works for big people too! The 2 bedrooms downstairs share a full bath in the hallway and it also serves as your guest bath.

Our deck is completely furnished with a 6 person Jacuzzi, custom handmade adirondeck chairs, log dining table and benches. There is also a hammock to relax, take a nap or read a book by the river in summer. Any season bring your favorite books!

My favorite part of the deck besides the Jacuzzi is the outdoor Kokopelli fire pit. We also have a Weber natural gas grill for all your delicious BBQ's in any season and a Weber charcoal grill too!

Plus, we have a campfire area in the yard during summer, fall and spring with handmade log benches for larger gatherings. Don't forget to bring your guitar for campfire sing- a - longs!

We hope y'all come and stay at our paradise on earth, "Mac's Hideaway" where dreams do come true! Once there, you'll never want to leave and you'll definitely want to come again and again!

We are so honored that we have had some guests that have been coming to Mac's Hideaway for 10-17 years and truly our home is their home too!

If you are visiting with a large group of friends Dancing River and River Lodge are located almost right next door to our home and also available for rent. The owners are friends of mine that came to visit me and ended up purchasing their own homes because they loved our neighborhood and Pagosa!

In summer don't forget to fill the hummingbird feeders and sit in the rockers in amazement to watch them feed, especially in the early morning and at sunset! I love this activity! Mix one part water and 4 parts sugar and bring to a boil and then fill feeders. Any left overs can be refrigerated.

We know you'll enjoy and love our home like we do!

Best wishes ~ Mac

About Owner/Mary Ann Camacho aka "MAC"

Mac loves enjoying happy hour on the San Juan River at sunset and during the night while listening to the sounds of the river and stargazing above! I start my day out drinking my coffee outside too in the spring, summer and fall.

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 with Coldwell Banker in Miami. I have 5 wonderful children, and 3 precious grand babies, so escaping to our hideaway is a total delight for me and my family. We've had many years of making loving and happy family memories in our home, as we've watched our 5 children grow into adults and of course we just keep getting older! Once in awhile, we love to sneak off alone or I love my girlfriend trips to our cabin, which both are amazingly fun, relaxing and pleasurable times! Now we are looking forward to enjoying our home with our precious grand children, so very blessed! I hope you'll love our home, as much as we do and create your family and romantic memories to last a lifetime! Love Mac & family!

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

Why Owner/Mary Ann Camacho aka "MAC" chose San Juan River Village

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 Weber natural 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 By you. 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 our 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

Ultimate in Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Mac's Getaway is the ultimate in relaxation! We had an amazing week staying at this charming log cabin on the river! The cabin is located at the end of a road and quite private. The interior is cute, homey, very comfortable and lacking nothing! We enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the river rushing by and relaxing in the hot tub during the evening! We will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us and others. I’m so happy you enjoyed our home and your stay. Yes our deck is everyone’s favorite place to hang out under the sun or midnight skies beneath a 1000 Stars, even the Milky Way! The Jacuzzi is so relaxing as the San Juan rushes by you. I hope you made a nice outdoor fire too! We are glad you’re coming back to Mac’s Hideaway where dreams and relaxation do come true! Winter skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, Hot Air Balloon rides and Pagosa Dog Sledding keep you really busy in the snowy and beautiful San Juan Mountains! I hope you got to the Hot Springs and enjoyed your Ziplining! See y’all soon! Cheers ~ Mac and family.

Inspiring, Cozy, and Beautiful Log Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Mac"s Hideaway was everything we wanted for our ski vacation at Wolf Creek. The cabin itself is beautifully decorated with plenty of room for 6-7 adults. The deck has a hot tub and firepit that overlooks the San Juan river. A beautiful relaxing setting.

Owner's Response: I’m glad y’all had a great springtime ski trip to our home. Our entire family of 14 went to Telluride and while we had a gorgeous home that fit us all in Mountain Village but it was difficult to breathe. Telluride is gorgeous and we loved the Gondola but we missed our home and San Juan River in our backyard with the best stargazing ever! There is nothing like spending time in our Jacuzzi day or night with the river flowing by and an outdoor fire! We love our home and we are so glad you did the same. We hope to see you again real soon. Thanks for staying with us ! Cheers Mac and family !

We love the deck too and have made so many fantastic memories there both day and night in all four seasons! It truly is paradise to come home and sit by the San Juan with a fire and spirits or soak in the Jacuzzi after a day of fun skiing or outdoor adventures. We hope you got some great skiing in too at WC! We hope to see you again! Cheers Mac and family!

MACs Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Recommended by a friend and was everything expected.

Close to Downtown Pagosa Springs, close to wolf creek ski resort, log cabin was cozy & nicely decorated.

Kids had a blast while we parents got to relax.

Looking forward to returning :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a fabulous time with your family in the mountains and enjoyed skiing Wolf Creek! I'm also really glad your family enjoyed being at our home for Christmas and New Years! Nothing better than being in a log cabin with the river for Christmas morning. I'm glad you took my advice and took the kids on the Durango-Silverton Train "Polar Express" trip with Santa and his elves too! We hope to see you next year! Cheers and Happy New Year 2018! Mac and family!

Homey cabin in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

MAC's cabin is cozy and filled with rustic charm. The setting can't be beat--not too far from town (slightly closer to Wolf Creek Pass) with the San Juan River flowing next to the deck making you feel a million miles from everything. The deck and hot-tub overlooking the river along with the fire pit and grill were special treats. We loved our stay and MAC is a gracious host (even in absentia). We would definitely stay at MAC's hideaway again.
