About the property

This privately owned ranch is the perfect destination for your southwestern Colorado vacation. It offers over 400 acres of wooded wilderness along with 3 private ponds and .75 mile of the San Juan River winding through it.

Year-round fishing is available on the river, and many trophy fish have been caught and released here. The ponds, which are fed by the river, also contain many different kinds of fish, including rainbow and brown trout, and perch, to name a few.

If you prefer to play in the water, the ponds and river are available for tubing, kayaking and swimming in the summertime. Since there is a three-quarter mile-long stretch of the San Juan River running through it, you can ride on the river from one end of the ranch to the other.

Hiking or biking on the maintained roads brings solitary pleasure to the soul. Chances of spotting wildlife on the ranch are very high. Deer, elk and eagles call this place 'home' at various times of the year. Be sure to bring your camera so that you can capture a moment or two with these majestic creatures.

Wintertime at the MASK Ranch is absolutely stunning. Enjoy the serenity of the newly fallen snow with a peaceful walk along the roads, or break your own trail for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Snowmobiling is also allowed on the ranch, when there is an ample amount of snow. If you prefer downhill skiing, the Wolf Creek Ski Area is just a short 25 miles away, and it takes approximately 30-45 minutes to get there.

The main house is located only 2 miles from scenic Pagosa Springs and the world famous Hot Springs, specialty shops and various restaurants. This two-story house sleeps 12 people in 4 bedrooms. There are 3.5 bathrooms and a full kitchen. The lower floor offers a fireplace and wood stove in the living areas while the bedrooms are all located upstairs. Three decks grace the outside of the house, so that you can view the serene mountain scenery.

Ideal for larger groups

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful ranch with lots of room, both in the house and out. We had 10 people including 2 little kids and felt like we had plenty of space. Very nice to have such beautiful acreage all to ourselves and be so close to town. We rented tubes in town and floated the river all the way back to the ranch which was a hit with everyone in our group. Will rent this place again if we can get 10 or more of our spread out family all there again at the same time.

A BIG Slice of Heaven.......

  • 5 of 5

9 members of my family (and 2 old dogs) came up from San Antonio and Houston to enjoy the Christmas holiday in Pagosa Springs. We made the decision late in the game, and weren't sure if we'd be able to find a place that could accommodate our large group and the high-demand dates. We hit the lottery when we were able to stay at Mask Ranch. The house itself is wonderful, plenty of room to gather and stretch out. The sleeping arrangements for our group were more than comfortable. The 440 + acres that surround the home were almost magical. We had a significant amount of snowfall while we were there which made the ranch look amazing. We cam equipped with 3 4WD vehicles, but the roads on the ranch were constantly plowed and we had no issues at any time during our stay. Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek are great. Mask Ranch is a slice of Heaven....a BIG slice of Heaven. Thank you for sharing it with us. We will be back!

This place has become our dream get away.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment at the ranch, whether it was getting a crackling fire going in the fire place at dawn or exploring the cliffs above the San Jaun river with the kids . The house was clean and tidy . Not to elaborate to enjoy, but very comfortable .

A great place for a family getaway ,or group vacation. If you haven't been to Pagosa Springs yet ,our family would highly recommend a stay at

the mask ranch with awesome mountain veiws and wild life from right out the back door . Thanks so much Rodger and Julie for sharing

your dream ranch with us.

Happy Memories Created at Mask Ranch

  • 5 of 5

My family (9 people and a yellow lab) had a wonderful time at this place!

We enjoyed a very comfortable and spacious home with a well stocked kitchen, large bedrooms and four bathrooms. The surrounding four acres were breathtaking! We plan to go back again in the next year. Thank you, Roger and Julie for providing such a wonderful experience!
