Things To Do


Surrounded by over 3 million acres of national forest and wilderness areas, you’ll find yourself in the center of nature’s playground in Pagosa Springs.  With the San Juan Mountains and a variety of outdoor activities at your doorstep, along with hot springs, charming shops, historic sites, and an assortment of artisans, you'll find plenty to do in Pagosa.

Take some time to relax and pamper yourself “Pagosa Style” this winter.  Imagine relaxing in the warm waters with snow falling, as you spend your days soaking your worries away.  Or, rejuvenate after a day in the snow - whether you've been skiing, snowboarding, sledding, or something else, the hot springs will help you get ready to play again the next day.

It's the first hotel in Colorado built to the LEED standards and one of only five in the country built to LEED Gold standards. Like the rest of the property, the new hotel is heated naturally using the hot geo-thermal water from the great hot spring onsite. For more information, visit
