Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Jim is from Santa Fe, NM and hiked the Weminuche as a kid. His spouse fell in love with Pagosa upon her first visit decades ago. Paradise in the Pines is our dream-get-away from the bustle and noise of city life: where our kids have watched Humming-birds/deer and the occasional bear. It's where they experience great fishing (our daughter holds a record of 20+ fish at one sitting) not far from the house. In essence, a place where wonderful memories are made to last a lifetime..............

Why the Owner Chose Pagosa Springs, CO, USA:
We love the outdoors and Pagosa Springs has incredible year-round adventure opportunities. Peace and quiet are interrupted by the wind chimes hanging off the Ponderosas. Humming birds/deer visit often (we provide a salt-lick by the rocks) and the solitude/fence make it their own. Our kids were excited to find fossilized rocks on the many boulders in the yard!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
