Dancing Bear Retreat Decks & Patio

The space

The grandeur of Dancing Bear strikes you as soon as you step foot into the great room, with its soaring ceilings, massive custom chandelier, hand scraped Hickory floors, and classic furnishing. This house was built with the finest craftsmanship and care to detail. It is a house you will want to return to time and time again.

With over 6,500 sq. ft., the accommodation offers five bedrooms for up to 15 guests, with six and a half baths, all with travertine counters and floors.

The fully equipped kitchen has granite counters and everything a chef could want, from the Cuisinart cookware to the six burner professional stove.

The master bedroom has a kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. There are three bedrooms with king beds (all pillowtop mattresses) and private baths. The bunkroom has two sets of twin XL beds and private bath. One of the bunks has a queen bed on the lower bunk. The basement has a king bed that can separate into twin XL beds, along with two full baths. There are flat screen TV’s in all but the basement bedroom, however, there is a 60″ TV close by.

For your enjoyment

The great room and media room both have 60″ flat screen TVs with surround sound and DVD players.

Challenge your friends and family to a friendly game in our spacious basement games area, which features a 14 foot shuffleboard table, along with air hockey, foosball and ping pong tables and bean bag toss!

The media room has a fireplace, and a wet bar with refrigerator and opens on to the patio with a hot tub. There are three fireplaces including one on the deck with teak rockers. Wi Fi access, a printer/fax/scanner and free long distance phone calls are included.

Exclusive Development

Dancing Bear Retreat is located in the exclusive Pagosa Lakes Development. When you stay with us, you’ll have access to private stocked lakes, recreation center with indoor pool, racquetball courts, fitness facility with full gym and classes; the Pagosa Springs 27 hole golf course, disc golf, miniature golf and hot air ballooning. Activities galore!


Other things to note:

Dancing Bear Retreat is a premier luxury home – truly one of a kind, situated on nine acres! No detail has been overlooked. The two indoor fireplaces have massive mantels, one Mesquite, one Juniper, delivered from Texas by the craftsman.  Custom touches are found everywhere, like the coffee table in the great room – it is an actual French mine chassis with a reclaimed wood top; it weighs over a thousand pounds and sits on custom wood blocks.  Sit on the decks with a cup of coffee in the morning and if you’re early enough you’ll have deer come in or at the end of a busy day, sit in a rocker, have a glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful scenery.

The house also features luxury linens and bath amenities, along with terry cloth bathrobes and hair dryers for your convenience. Located on nine acres with fenced area and barn for horses. Sit on one of the decks and watch the deer come into our little pond every evening.
