Arrow Vacation Home in Colorado Between Pagosa & Durango

Hey guys and gals,

I will be taking on new job opportunities that will require me to be out of town for extended periods of time. Would there be any TBH's interested in renting a large 3 bedroom - 4200 sq. ft. home that directly borders the Colorado San Juan National Forest???

My home could be used as your base camp for hunting, fishing, skiing, horseback riding etc. and also a place to escape the busy city life and Covid19 crud. In our neighborhood (depending on the time of year) we have seen elk, black bear, mule deer, turkey, grouse, and even mountain lion and moose. 40 minute drive to downtown Durango. 35 minute drive to Pagosa Springs. 1 hour 10 min drive to both Purgatory and Wolf Creek ski resorts. Ski or hunt all day and be home in time for dinner.

Would possibly consider renting it out for week minimum up to 2-3 months at a time with a better rate for longer stays. The home is currently listed on Zillow, so here is the link for more photos. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2...d/?view=public

Let me know if there is any interest in this. Thanks!

Keith

I’ve stayed in Bayfield a few times, and Durango and Pagosa plenty. We usually spend a week or two each summer in that general are, so I’d definitely be interested if available when we’re looking to go.

Southwest corner of the state, closest town (17 minute drive) is Bayfield.

See the red dot on the map.

I won’t specifically recommend this service, but my in-laws used it for a property up near Purgatory for a few years. Always booked well in the summer and winter. Kinda remember some issues with the service itself but not sure if all the properties Have the same manager. We always loved this area and you are in such a great location to maximize a vacation or hunting trip. Fishing is great just south in Farmington too. Good luck!!

My in-laws just listed their place in the San Juan just north of Pagosa Springs. So if it sells soon, Iím sure they would be interested in a week or two every now and then. Iíll check back with you if they mention going up for vacation and see if the schedule aligns Iíd prefer to help a TBH brother out if we can

If you can keep it and VRBO it, I would. Our real estate markets here in Colorado are continuing to increase, even with COVID. Less inventory, but there is not a market leveling that has occurred. You are in a great section of the State... VRBO it a couple weeks a month and cover your payment, all while your equity is going up and your note is going down.

Keith,

You said it borders the national forest. Can a person leave your property in a side by side to go riding in the national forest or would I have to trailer somewhere?

Beautiful place!

Thanks!

This is the plan unless someone makes an offer that just makes my jaw drop!

Hi Les. You sure can ride your toys from the house! I ride my polaris ranger daily. There are hundreds of miles of trails in the San Juan National Forest you can access right from our neighborhood. Last year, Dad and I rode 55 miles in one day.

It used to be OTC for archery, now its draw. You can get OTC tags for 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons though.
