Property description

Spruce House of Pagosa Springs
Private access to fly fishing on the San Juan River!

Just outside the back door of Spruce House is one of the most scenic spots on the San Juan River. Guests have private access to great fishing and a private beach for river play. There is also a pond that is easily accessed by kids of all ages. River fishing is catch and release fly fishing. When fishing in the pond you may choose your bait and keep the fish if you wish. A fire pit, picnic table and horseshoe pit are included to make your time on the river a wonderful time, indeed.
Spruce House is a beautifully furnished small two bedroom home with comfy sleeping for six. There is a gas fireplace for chilly Colorado mornings and evenings. We provide WiFi and a TV. There is a lovely covered porch, just perfect for hanging out time.
Spruce House is only 2 ½ miles from the amenities of downtown Pagosa Springs and just 20 miles from the summit of Wolf Creek Pass.
Trails and beauty abound wherever you choose to go; whether by foot or simply harnessing the horses of your vehicle for exploratory drives. Or just hang out at Spruce House, and enjoy the comforts of home, the incredible fly fishing and breathtaking views of Pagosa Peak.
We welcome your pet. We do ask an additional $10 per night per pet with a limit of two pets. Sorry, but we don’t accept pit bulls or puppies as guests.
We will provide lists of pet sitters and shops that rent fly fishing equipment.
*Please note: there is no smoking on the property.
We welcome you to our home on the river, and hope your Colorado vacation will be one of joy and beautiful memories to take home.

So many wonderful places to visit...Spruce House is only 2 miles from access to San Juan National Forest, where trails and rivers abound. Wemininuche Wilderness Area, as well as the South San Juan Wilderness area can be reached in an easy 30 minutes. Play in the East Fork or West Fork of the San Juan. On the East Fork you'll find Silver Falls and lots of trout. (Hit the down arrow and read on.)

Spectacular! Explore Summitville, an old mining town within an hour's drive. Check out beautiful Alberta Lake, just below Wolf Creek Ski Area and a short 20 miles from your home at Spruce House.

Spend a day enjoying a ride from Chama N..M. to Antonita CO on the Cumbres-Toltec Railroad, complete with gorgeous scenery and an old fashioned steam engine.

If you're here at high water time (May-June) river rafting is a favorite. When the river waters recede to seasonal levels you can tube the San Juan for a wet and wild experience. Not too wild for kids 6 and up, or for some of us...60 and up.

The possibilities for vacation adventure range from mild to wild, with something for everyone who enjoys the outdoors and the majestic mountains. And it's all easily accessed from your comfy cabin on the San Juan River.
