About Jim White

Jim was raised not far from Pagosa Springs, in lovely Santa Fe, New Mexico, and hiked the Weminuche as a kid. His spouse is an East Coast transplant, who fell in love with Pagosa upon her first visit. Our home in the Pines of Pagosa is our dream-come-true-get-away from the bustle and noise of city life: where our children can watch Humming-birds feeding, the deer visiting in their own backyard or the occasional bear; it's where they can experience great fishing (our daughter holds a record of 16 fish at one sitting) not far from the house. In essence, a place where wonderful memories are being made to last a lifetime..............

Jim White purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim White chose Southwest

We love the outdoors and Pagosa Springs has wonderful year-round adventure opportunities. Peace and quiet are often interrupted by the wind chimes hanging off the Ponderosas. Humming birds come to visit whenever we fill their feeders.....Occasional deer graze amongst the ponderosas (we have a salt-lick by the rocks) and the pure mountain air is a treat as one just relaxes in the rock-strewn yard (the kids were so excited to find some fossilized rocks in one of the boulders out the back!!), each visit brings new wonders!

What makes this house unique

Plentiful powder and first to open Colorado ski resort at Wolf Creek Ski area in the winter, feisty trout in the summer, hiking among the largest US Wilderness, some of Colorado's most beautiful fall colors, water falls and mountain scenery. Year-round soaking in Pagosa Hot Springs with full spa options for complete relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing my family the use of your home. It was convenient to everything and the kitchen was great to cook in. Spring break in Pagosa is always a treat. The welcome treats were put to good use. Thanks again and God willing, we will return again.

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home during the Christmas to New Years week. It had everything we needed, was in a beautiful setting and made us feel warm and cozy. You feel as though you are out in the woods, even though you are in a neighborhood. Thanks to the White family for sharing their home and I would highly recommend this location.

Amazing Christmas experience! (With lots of snow)

  • 5 of 5

I grew up skiing since I was a young kid in New England but have been living in Austin, TX for 11+ years. My daughters had never really experienced snow or skiing and really wanted that this year.

When I found Paradise in the Pines on HomeAway, I immediately knew it would be perfect. Was so happy to be able to secure it for 3 nights over Christmas 2016. The White's home is beautiful and they even had lots of Christmas decorations up throughout their home (which meant a lot to us since we had never really spent a Christmas away from our own home before). My girls loved that there was even a little lighted Tree and reindeer hooks to hang the stockings above the fireplace. Had a blast with burgers at Riff Raff folllowed by enjoying the relaxing Hot Springs in town our first night there; skiing on perfect snow at Wolf Creek (after yet another nice snow had fallen) on Christmas Eve followed by some takeout and Christmas movies in front of the fireplace; and waking up to snow falling on Christmas morning was absolutely the best. We spent most of Christmas Day playing in the snow in their spacious backyard and made memories that will last a lifetime.

The kids loved the back yard as did our 2 dogs. The house was everything we hoped for...very comfortable and well suited for our family. We highly recommend this property. Jim was easy to work with and responsive to any questions we had.

Wonderful Stay...

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. I have been visiting Pagosa for over 35 years and have stayed in many motels and several houses. This home is within 5 minutes of shopping, groceries, fuel, restaurants, etc. The stairs were not a problem. Kitchen was great and the beds were fantastic. Very clean. I would recommend putting a TV inside the armoire in the Master Bedroom. Even if the TV is not added, this will still be my first choice next year when we return. Many thanks for allowing us the privilege of staying in your home.

Notes:
With the adjacent vacant lot, the entire property is fenced in for added privacy . Since this home is equipped with an expensive radiant heating system for the winter, central air is not an option, however we provide A/C in master bedroom and a portable swamp cooler (located in master bedroom closet: just fill w/ water and turn on) to cool down the upstairs (there are ceiling fans in most rooms). The home cools down quickly via cross ventilation/A/C + swamp cooler during the hottest days of July.
