Amazing House!

Beautiful well equipped house

Amazing Pagosa Springs Home

The Dancing Bear Retreat was the perfect location for our family vacation. The house is amazing, simply beautiful with spectacular sweeping views of the mountains. A hot air balloon landed on the property while we were there and deer roamed freely. We had plenty of room to set up volleyball and bocce ball games and the sweet horse next door was kind enough to let our grandchildren feed it. We appreciated so many amenities like two washers, two dryers and two refrigerators. There is even a kitchenette in the master bedroom! The gourmet kitchen truly has everything you need with beautiful dishes, glasses and silverware. It is obvious that Linda cares about her guests as she provides all the personal toiletries needed, no detail is overlooked. We went whitewater rafting, horseback riding, hiking and enjoyed soaking in the Pagosa Springs mineral pools, but with this fabulous home we spent most of our time just relaxing there. I highly recommend Dancing Bear Retreat, truly Pagosa Springs’s finest property.

We had a family reunion at Dancing Bear and it was wonderful!! The house is beautiful and warming with plenty of space. We were welcomed with some treats of mixed nuts and cookies upon are arrival which where delicious. The family had a wonderful time, the kids and adults had a blast playing games in the game room. Linda is an amazing host making sure we had everything we needed for are stay. Plenty of room for yard games, the scenery and views are spectacular. We all finished are days hanging out on the balcony’s or by the fireplaces watching deer. This is by far the BEST vacation we have had as a family! I would definitely stay here again and Highly recommend this VRBO property. Pagosa Springs town and restaurants are fabulous. Lots of activities of hiking and sight seeing around the area. I can’t say enough good things about this Luxury home.

Wonderful property

We took our kids to Dancing Bear so they could experience their first real white Christmas. It was awesome! The house and property are gorgeous and had us entertained the entire week we were there. Linda is an exceptional host and we would highly recommend this VRBO property.

Thank you for letting us be your first guests. We shall return!

Wonderful place to stay!

Beautiful home! Plenty of room for everyone in our family. Had lots of fun in the game room. The balcony was wonderful to read, visit with each other, watch deer feeding, see hot air balloons, or just enjoy the peaceful setting. Plenty of quiet places to walk or run around the property. Wonderful place to stay and we will be back!

Comfortable stay in beautiful home!

We had a wonderful Spring Break vacation at Dancing Bear Retreat. A large but, comfortable home that accommodated 3 families. Well decorated and well stocked…we enjoyed the hot tub, fireplace, and enjoyed meals at the large dining table looking out over the fabulous views. Close to the grocery store and our favorite restaurants. Highly recommended!

Great property, everything you could ask for!

We had a group of 10 adults and 2 small children. There was plenty of room for everyone to be together or do their own thing if they wanted. House is in great location just a short drive to town. Beautiful property with hills for the kids to sled down. Kitchen was stocked very well with all the basics and some not so basic supplies. Wolf Creek is about 45 minutes away and we had a great two days skiing up on the mountain. We will absolutely consider Dancing Bear next year for our annual ski trip. Thank you Linda for sharing your home with us, it was the trip of a lifetime!

The Dancing Bears Cabin is truly wonderful. There was nothing in the home to be “let down” about. Every guest has a very large comfortable bed, there was also enough towels and linens (in case you aren’t one to wash your towels frequently through out your stay). The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could imagine. (even things such as foil, wax paper, condiments, trash bags, and such). The basement room is wonderful for children to have a place to play and games to keep them entertained. We were snowed in for a couple days, but the house was big enough to keep everybody comfortable and relaxed. (even with 13 people). Linda has robes and toiletries available in every room, and there are enough TVs throughout the house to watch whatever you want. Linda informed us of the extra sleds that they kept in the garage and the children had a blast using them on the extended drive way down to the garage. The fireplaces were wonderful to have, and they were all easy to use. The large dining table in the kitchen was large enough to fit all of us and the view was the best you could ever ask for. It was hard for us to leave the table even hours after the conclusion of each meal because of the wonderful view. I would recommend this house every time! We enjoyed every minute of it.

Absolutely Magnificent

This home is absolutely magnificent. There were 7 adults staying for 5 nights. Each had their own bed room area with bath. There is everything that you would ever need available in the house. Any kitchen and cooking amenities were readily there for your usage. The Aspens were beautiful along with the cool crisp weather. We did the hot air balloon ride which was awesome. Highly recommend the Dancing Bear home.

Best House in Pagosa

The pictures of the house don’t do it justice! Beautiful house, pastoral setting! Everything was well maintained, clean and orderly. Kitchen was fully stocked and the owners provide many items that mostVRBO rentals do not, including shampoo and conditioner, chapstick!, toilet paper and paper towels. Plenty of spices and other necessities cut down on the trips to the store. Owners were very helpful and provided several tips that the local know, including the hidden sled hill. We had an awesome time. Thank you so much!
