Why Chris Durfee chose Pagosa Springs
Because it's simply beautiful. The Barn is super sweet. And there's a river in the backyard.
What makes this Cabin unique
This property is simply beautiful. I have private access to the Blanco River, and a private swimming hole. Fishing is allowed, but please catch and release only. Also the property has a large pasture area of approximately 2 acres so all you horse folks can stay here!! Hunters especially welcome!! Awesome big mountain views are to the east, and you can go for a stroll across the street in the national forest. One unique benefit as a local in the winter time, is being located south off of Hwy 84. You get to avoid all the traffic headed downtown from the west side of town, which can be very slow and frustrating these days. As Wolf Creek becomes more and more popular every winter, the traffic is getting worse and worse in town. It can take a half hour sometimes if it's snowing, to get from the west side of town, to 4 miles!! YUCK!! I don't know about y'all but when it's a powder day, I HATE waiting in traffic!! Stay here, and you avoid ALL the ski and school traffic of downtown Pagosa.

Absolutely great place!
My wife and I loved Chris’ place. It’s comfortable and clean and is very convenient to town and the ski area. We would (and hopefully will soon) stay here again.
GREAT time at THE BARN!
We are from Fort Worth so we don't see a lot of snow. Boy this year did not disappoint at The Barn. Chris was so kind throughout our stay and our boys fell in love with Dede the pooch. He even helped my husband learn how to drive on the snow so we could get down the road and offered to take us into town if we still didn't feel comfortable. The cabin was clean and the layout was perfect. We stayed warm and It was big enough for our family of 4 (with a 5 and 7 year old). The whole property is just beautiful from the cabin to the pavilion down by the river. During our stay, we went to wolf creek ski area to sled, did some sledding on reservoir hill, drove into Durango and did the train (I highly recommend- breathtaking views and a good day trip - 1.25 h drive, 5h train ride), soaked in the hot springs and ate some good food. Our pups had a good time too! We're looking to come back and experience during the spring or summer.
Beautiful winter wonderland!
Most memorable birthday trip by far! So much snow to enjoy. No issues getting to the Barn or into town with all the snow. The Barn is fully stocked with lots of cooking supplies. Lots of great food options in town too. Chris is an awesome host and really made us feel so welcome. We will be back for sure!
The barn was simply amazing. Our family of 4 stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Chris was very welcoming. He invited us over to watch the football and introduced us to all his friends who were equally welcoming. We will definitely be back during the summer!
The Barn was perfect in every way! The cabin was beautiful and so cozy! It had everything we could have wanted, and Chris was an awesome host! We felt like it was our home away from home! The location was perfect. We were close enough to town, yet still far enough out to feel like we were away from it all. The property was beautiful and had everything we wanted. We can't wait to come back! Thanks for making our trip so awesome!
Skiier's Paradise, Amazing Host
We cannot recommend this property enough in any season. We spent 4 nights here over New Years and absolutely loved our stay. We brought our dog -- a half-rottweiler, half-lab -- and he had the time of his life as well. The property is as-described, with all of the amenities one could want, and works comfortably for couples and small families. Chris, the owner/landlord, was over-the-top in his helpfulness and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. This home is slightly outside of town, so you will need a vehicle, and in the winter, conditions can be cold and snowy, so best to opt for a vehicle that can handle the terrain. Again, I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice, quiet, removed place to stay with great amenities and easy access to all of the town's offerings. We're already looking forward to our next visit!
