About the Property

4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath house with mountain views on the Rio Grande River

Fully furnished home with 4 queen beds with a fully stocked kitchen. The house has a covered back porch as well as a patio next to the porch and a deck out over the river. We are three miles from the Rio Grande Golf Club and Resort, 20 miles from the Wolf Creek Ski area that has the most snow of any resort in Colorado, in the middle of thousands of acres of national forests, and have a gold medal trout stream in our back yard. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is a short drive as is the famous hot springs of Pagosa Springs along with many other summer and winter attractions.

We love children, so we have a pack n play on site for your babies!

We do have one other requirement that I think is important to share in advance. The neighbors on both sides of our house (and the houses are close) are retired Christian people. They are good friends, and we do not want our guests’ activities to be disturbing to them in any way. As such, we ask that there be no loud music ever, nor loud partying in the evening. Remember this is Colorado at 8000 ft., so people sleep with their windows open in the summer. You can feel free to use the great back yard, fire pits, and decks as long or late as you want, but make sure that by 10 pm the sound of laughter and talking does not make a problem for them. FYI, they are not crankpots, in fact they will be great friends and of help to you while you are there. We just want you to remember that this is not a resort, but a family subdivision, so be respectful of them as I know you will.

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We owned property with friends in Colorado earlier in our lives and loved taking our children there for summer and winter fun. We always thought we would come back. Now we plan to allow our grandchildren similar experiences to what we gave our kids. We are Texans, and Texas Aggies, but love this part of Colorado, especially since it is essentially northwest Texas! We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do (even if Texas A&M isn't your favorite university!)

Why South Fork, Colorado, United States of America:
We looked at numerous other properties that just didn't feel right. When we saw this property with the great house, beautiful yard and the deck on the river, we just knew it was home. We hope you will feel this way too.
