San Juan River Ranch

Greeted by a crisp colorful Colorado sunrise in Pagosa Springs, the heat of the summer was the successfully escaped in the San Juan Mountains. Driving through the San Juan Wilderness on a dirt road with the feeling that you are the only one awake at that time gives a sense of freedom and peace that only the mountains can offer. The San Juan Ranch is located in ideal meadows secluded on top of the San Juan River with the temptation to put a fly on the river from the porch swing while witnessing beautiful wildlife climbing the mesa across the river. This ranch is ideal for those who are enthralled by the outdoors and need a place to escape the hectic life.
