Enjoyed our stay in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family and offered a convenient, beautiful location to return to each day after exploring the San Juan National forest. The home was clean and provided all of the amenities we needed, including a quiet place for our 2-year-old to nap during the day while we enjoyed time on the deck overlooking the San Juan River! With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, it was probably a little big for our family of three, but we felt cozy and warm during our fall stay. The owners are extremely responsive and were very easy to communicate with when we needed them. Overall it was an awesome place and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place near Pagosa Springs.

Great!!! Cabin, View, and owners were AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this same cabin 3 times now over the last 2 years and love it. The cabin was great and the view was incredible! The owner Doug is a great guy and very cooperative! He helped up with several things including locating someone to get us wood! Thanks Doug!

Great home on the river

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home right on the river. The guys just stepped out the back door and fished the river every evening. We enjoyed Netflix and the board games provided by the home owners. We enjoyed relaxing on the large deck. We also enjoyed building a fire in the fire ring right by the water. The home is located outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. It was nice and quiet. While the home could benefit from some updates, it was great for our family of 5. For the money paid, this was a good value.

A wonderful, well-appointed midsize home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The RiverHome is a classic "Goldilocks" place to stay - not too big, and not too small, not too fancy but not too plain. For our family, it was just right!

Bottom line up front: we loved this house and would absolutely stay here again.


- Location - great spot near Pagosa Springs (10 min) and close to Wolf Creek ski area (25 min)

- Extremely reasonably priced for the season and size

- Well appointed kitchen with nice appliances, utensils, quality pots and pans, plenty of dishware, etc. Far, far above average in this area. Cooking here was a joy and we never felt like we were struggling to make a limited number of kitchen items fill too many roles, as is frequently the case in rental homes. Great assortment of spices, plus random food staples on the "take what you need, leave your extra behind" plan. Exceptional.

- Super comfy furniture - awesome recliner chairs in the living room!

- Blankets in a basket in the living room - sounds minor, but touches like this make all the difference

- King size beds in two of the bedrooms. Nice!

- Excellent owner/manager - an absolute joy to work with

Cons (teeny, tiny quibbles, and don't be surprised if the owner takes care of them before you ever see the house):

- Queen bed in 3rd bedroom not quite up to standard of the other two bedrooms

- Upstairs bedroom doesn't have a dresser - this house is waaaay too nice to have to stack clothes on the floor

- TV sound quality not great (sheesh, I'm almost embarrassed to even mention that...)

This is a GREAT house for the money. It's not huge, but it is homey, comfortable, and made us smile every day. It had everything you need at the fairest price around. Rent it early because this house will go early every single year. We will be back!

Very nice cabin, well furnished and populated with all little things that you may have forgotten at home: matches, spices, dishwasher, sleds for the kids...

Beautiful winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievably beautiful property. The river behind the house is much bigger than the pictures show. The neighborhood is quiet allowing you to relax to the sound of the river. We were lucky enough to get over a foot of snow while we were there and the result was a truly picturesque view from the home. The beds were comfortable and the house was a great size for a family of 5.
