About Jim White

Jim, a Santa Fe, NM native hiked the Weminuche wilderness as a kid. Paradise in the Pines is our dream-get-away from the hustle/bustle of city life: where our kids watch Humming-birds/deer/fox/coyottes and the occasional bear plus great fishing.

Jim White purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim White chose Southwest

Year round adventure, where humming birds/deer/fox visit often!

What makes this house unique

Plentiful powder and "first to open Colorado ski resort" at Wolf Creek, feisty trout in the spring-fall, hiking among one of 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.

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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Clean and comfy!

This was a great property for our annual girl's weekend! One suggestion is a mat in the upstairs bathtub to prevent slipping.

Beautiful home and setting in close proximity to town but with country flavor. Didn't lack for anything; all we needed thoughtfully provided.

Goldilocks would approve!

  • 5 of 5

I was leery at first, as the price is significantly lower than comparable properties, but ultimately decided to go with it. Everything was just as advertised, and most important to me, very clean. At 61years of age, with one less-than-optimal knee, the stairs were NOT an issue. Great value, beautiful surroundings, and attentive owner! JUST RIGHT!

The two grandkids loved the back yard, especially when deer came in for the salt lick. Quiet neighborhood, easy access, spacious & comfortable. With two evaporative coolers (both upstairs), the entire home was cool enough, even in late July.

Amazing home, full of hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to be back in Pagosa Springs! This house provided the best "base camp" we ever had for a vacation! The teens were downstairs with the two bedrooms (queen and double bunk) and their own bathroom and a door to the fenced-in yard(look close at the pic- it has chicken wire-the dog stays in!). This lower landing has the washer/dryer and a door to the garage (Jim has set up a place for ski equipment/hiking boots etc). Upstairs is beautiful. The master is just off the kitchen area. The spa tub was heaven after hiking Four-mile Falls and white water rafting on the West Fork River. The stairs are many, but they kept us moving. The hot springs(beware-towels(yours-Walmart?or rent at spa-not Jim's) and swim suit will sulfur stink), great restaurants and stores, mini-golf, hiking trails, etc all close by. We drove to snow in June at the Continental Divide! And when we got up there, found more crazy Texans. We were moving big logs so we might have been the first group of the season to get that high, which was not quite all the way to the look-out. Hot- Air balloon, stars, and wildlife observed just enjoying the decks at Pagosa in the Pines.

Mr. White has notes all around allowing us to try our best take good care of everything, as the place has our hearts. Thanks for hosting our family on a perfect vacation in our happy place. The Richardsons

Nice house with plenty of room but no AC in master bedroom.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the property and it had everything needed including a gas grill. The only down side was the fact that there was no air conditioner despite what is listed in the accommodation section of the listing. Staying during the summer months might be tough to do again without the AC, the master reached 84 degrees the last night we were there. Other than that it was a nice stay.

Owner's Response: Hello David, our apologies: Beginning of May we were informed that the A/C install was scheduled, however, we only found out that it was still sitting on the table in the garage when the guests who arrived the day you left, phoned us to inform the house could not be cooled. A second, new portable A/C unit has been purchased/installed. Our contractor has been advised that the A/C needs to be installed by May 31-no exceptions. We totally agree that A/C is necessary with the heat waves hitting CO, as early as mid June. Our apologies for the inconvenience since we strive to provide an exceptional experience at Paradise in the Pines. Regards Jim White
