FISHING: Every year our stretch of the San Juan River is stocked with trout. It is a fly fishing, catch and release area. You can literally walk out the back door of River Retreat, cast your fly and pull in a large, beautiful fish! The neighborhood has 2 ponds that are also stocked with a variety of fish for the children to fish out of. You can float, swim, canoe or kayak on our larger local pond as well.

We had a wonderful time here! When we arrived everything was just how we expected, the sheets were clean, everything was clean! The views were so beautiful and we enjoyed the nice quiet neighborhood! Only down fall was the top floor was hot but other than that everything was good! We definitely enjoyed our stay!

We had a great time.

  • 4 of 5

Master king bed was very comfortable. The master bathroom shower was awkward to get in and out of, but the water pressure was good. You should provide some cleaning supplies. This was the first rental that we have stayed in that did not provide ample cleaning supplies. We really enjoyed the trip.

The communication from this renter and the office was not good, and I'm being nice. Every year for the past five years we had gone with a pagosacentral reservations, Randy and crew. This year, I decided to try something different.

What a mistake. Every year with Pagosa central reservations we were able to get in early and stay late they always worked with us. That's what I thought was going to happen with this rental. I was wrong.

They did say we could get in early at 3 as opposed to 4. When we got there the landscapers mowing the lawn and using weed eaters all around the property. were we didn't actually get in till after 4. Because the owner was coming in the next day we were able to leave at noon rather than 10 which was appreciated somewhat.. We had to wait with my family in the cars after a four-hour drive. We finally were able to get into the cabin we went out to the hot tub I took pictures of how ugly the top and the inside, of the hot tub looked. It appeared as though it had not been cleaned in at least a month and a half. The guy who did the chemicals for it came in one day.....unannounced just showed up in the backyard we noticed because my son does pools that he put too much chlorine in. My son had to redo the entire water system. The guy was not too happy when my son spoke to him and said he had 30 more jobs to do seemed like he was in a hurry. In the second bedroom that was stains on the pillow case. And stuff on the floor that appear to be dandruff or flakes.

Actually there were several other things but I really don't want to spend that much time going over this. We were not happy and all we didn't spend much time at the cabin and will never use VRBO again. Johnny J Armijo

Great location, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This house is everything the pictures lead you to expect. We loved the location, the river

in the back yard and the large deck. The house needed some repair once we checked

in so Pagosa Realty stepped up to take care of the problems. One thing that we did

not expect was no air conditioning. In June the temp got up to 84 degrees and the

upstairs area was not tolerable until an hour after dark. They had two fans upstairs but

neither worked. PR bought two new fans for our stay. PR sent out a repairman to replace the ceiling fan in the Master Bedroom (didn't work either).

Other than the AC, the house is perfect for my family of 10, 6 adults and 4 grands.

We will visit Pagosa Springs again.

Enjoyable time on the San Juan River

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable & the accommodations were nice, We couldn't do some of the things we had planned because of the Durango fire ,but we had the river & the hot tub to entertain us. Pagosa Springs is a neat little town & we enjoyed the Mineral Springs.

great family house

  • 4 of 5

The house is very comfortable and spacious, but it could use a little TLC. For example, the master bathroom needs to be updated, there is no vent above the stove, and some of the screens are hanging off the windows. The location is perfect for traveling to Wold Creek.
