About Lisa Baker
Tony and Lisa Baker, along with sons Jonathan and Christopher, are true “native born Texans”, living in the hill country west of Austin, TX in Dripping Springs. We all love to hike, mountain bike and climb our little hills in Texas, but greatly adore the majestic mountains in Colorado! We began our love affair with Colorado about 30 years ago when Lisa’s folks bought a condo in the Summit County area of Colorado, and we started going to ski in the winters and hike and bike in the summers for many years. We introduced our sons to the mountains when they were little and they grew up to love it as well.
Lisa Baker purchased this House in 2015
Why Lisa Baker chose San Juan River Village
Our passion for Pagosa Spgs first began about 12 years ago, when our dear friends bought a vacation home there, and graciously allowed us to come and visit each year. Every time we’d visit, we were reminded that there was something very special and unique about Pagosa Spgs, and we uncovered more reasons each visit for why we wanted to own a house there one day. As we sat on the balcony watching the sunrise or sunset on the mountains, or felt snowflakes fall on our nose and eyelashes while we were in the hot tub or skiing at Wolf Creek, we realized that this place was truly magical, and always felt like home. We’d dream about one day having a house in Pagosa Spgs, but didn’t really know WHEN it would happen. We truly did NOT expect to find a home as perfect as this one so quickly. Well…the stars and planets aligned for us to find our beautiful home in July 2015,, and we were blessed by God to be able to officially make this one our own in September 2015. We are looking forward to making many new memories in our precious home, and ultimately retiring here in 4 years.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this property for obvious reasons, but we especially were enchanted with the unobstructed mountain views, the superior quality of the home's construction and higher end finishing details, like granite countertops and ironwork. Our realtor says that Lisa "levitated when she entered the home." So much for keeping a poker face. What's not to love about it? We appreciated the variety/colors of different building materials chosen in the construction of the home, inside and out, and think it is especially warm and inviting. The large wall of windows on the back of the house make it impossible to escape the wonder of God's handiwork on display. Our guests tell us they love the personal access to the San Juan River for amazing fly fishing, kayaking and floating...as well as the close distance to the slopes for skiing and nearby fishing ponds for kids, hiking/biking trails. They love how beautiful our home is, and organized so that guests have no trouble finding anything. We tried to think of everything and then some when furnishing it! Currently we have the highest number of 5 star reviews for 5 bdrm homes in our area, and work hard to make our home stand out above the rest! For now, we are blessed and excited to share it with you and yours, and pray you will find it a place of rest, relaxation and retreat when you visit.

Wonderful family getaway.
My family and in-laws met at the property for Thanksgiving. The house is beautiful and the kitchen is stocked with every appliance and tool you need for preparing Thanksgiving dinner. There are also lots of space for kids to play, a giant dining table, and lots of baby stuff.
The owner was very attentive to our needs and helped ensure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay.
The house is about 10 minutes from town and about 20 minutes from Wolf Creek. On Thanksgiving night we all enjoyed the hottub overlooking the river as it snowed. A blessing of fresh powder we greatly appreciated for our first day of skiing.
Lisa and Tony are wonderful hosts and I highly recommend staying at their home.
Excellent property!!! Great location!!!
We loved our stay at this house. The house is beautiful inside and out. The location couldn’t have been better. The house is VERY well stocked with everything you could imagine. The owner Lisa is great!! We will be back!!!
A perfect, beautiful home
I cannot overstate how wonderful River’s Edge Retreat was for our group. It was the best equipped, most comfortable, cozy, spacious home we have ever found anywhere, and Tony and Lisa didn’t leave anything out in the way of provisions during our stay. Views are spectacular. I am not exaggerating when I praise this home. There was nothing lacking and they were very solicitous of our needs. We had nine in our party, and were never crowded at all. They have games for kids, two separate living areas, a gourmet kitchen, a dining table that seats 10 plus 3 barstools at the kitchen island, 3.5 baths and plenty of closet space. Comfortable beds, large fluffy towels—I could go on for days, but trust me, you will have the perfect stay at this beautiful home! Also easy access and a few minutes from downtown Pagosa Springs.
Beautiful home with great views.
Stayed 5 days. We loved everything about this property. Lots of different activities to do around the house. Loved the kitchen.
What a perfect place ... perfect for 9 ladies celebrating a special birthday! Everyone loved everything about this house - no detail has been overlooked. Thank you, Lisa and Tony, for sharing your special place with us. 10 stars!
Amazing Home located in a perfect spot!
I couldn’t get over how many little details were in this home! I’ve stayed in dozens of rental properties but nothing compares to how perfect this home was to stay in for a girls trip. The linens alone were better than the Ritz Carlton! From beach towels to blankets for our outdoor rocking chairs- this home was gorgeous and well maintained. I will definitely add this home to my future travels!
There are countless area hikes and bike paths that range from easy to challenging. Our private river access allows for adventures with kayaks or floats when the river is flowing well, and the fly fishing is superb. There are even ponds for the kids to fish, where they can almost be assured of catching one! Our upstairs balcony is home to a host of hummingbirds which will fascinate and delight you and yours.
