Christmas in Pagosa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 spent Christmas week at Hilltop Haven in Pagosa Springs, and we all agree it was a perfect vacation. The cabin was roomy enough for a large family with teenage boys to relax and feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook Christmas dinner. The cabin is perfectly situated within walking distance to the hot springs, shopping, and restaurants and has spectacular views of the steamy hot springs and beautiful mountains. We were amazed to see 4-5 deer walking through the yard every evening! It is an absolutely beautiful and scenic 20 minute drive up to Wolf Creek Ski area. We can't wait to go back!

My family and I had such a wonderful time at this cabin for 5 days over spring break! We got to drive 30mins to play in snow, drive 2 mins to get in a hot spring, drive 5mins to local breweries or to get groceries! Highly recommend!

Quaint and Homey

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas at the Hilltop Mountain Retreat with our two adult children while spending our days on the ski slopes. It was a comfortable stay that embraced us with the "feel of home". The house has a pleasantly quirky and quaint personality. I especially enjoyed discovering its uniqueness as I walked in every room. THE VIEWS!!! allowed us to enjoy the massive amount of snowfall received. It was clean and supplied with everything we needed including washer/dryer, full kitchen necessities, cable, wifi, clean linens, comfortable beds, good hot water supply, and great heating. I loved the openness of the dining/living/kitchen area. Although the master bedroom was very roomy; we were not big fans of the "open style" bathroom. The only other thing future renters should be aware of (clearly shown in the pics) is the only shower in the front bathroom. The master bath is tub only. Because of the large amount of snow, we did not get to enjoy any of the fun outside features such as the beautiful big deck, or the fire pit and teepee area. However, having a carport to park under was a lifesaver! We highly recommend this home. It's a great location with several good restaurants within walking distance.

Pagosa Springs boasts the most snow in Colorado and has the World's largest hot springs all while getting plenty of sunshine in the Southwest. The hot springs are downtown, within walking distance to Hilltop Haven. The great San Jaun river is a stones throw away for world class fly fishing and white water rafting. For those seeking more leisurely activity, stroll along the antique and unique gift shops one block away. Wolfcreek skiing and snowmobiling is a 20 minute drive up the mountain through the most picturesque wildnerness to be experienced.
