Affording absolute privacy, Mountain Bird Ranch stretches across approximately 600 acres, with a quiet, end-of-the-road location in the awe-inspiring high country about 30 minutes outside of Pagosa Springs and 3 hours from Santa Fe, New Mexico. The home
of the late musician Dan Fogelberg, this unique property provides the best of all worlds, with a 6,000 + square foot main residence featuring soaring beam ceilings, 2 master suites and 2 guest bedrooms, and a 4 bedroom guest house with separate caretaker's apartment and ranch manager's office, complete equestrian facilities, beautiful lakes and ponds, abundant water and breathtaking views of the Continental Divide - all virtually surrounded by national forest that the property has direct, private access to.

A wildlife habitat for 30 years, deer and elk wander the property, ducks and geese frequent the ponds, and bald eagles soar overhead. Not in a conservation easement, the property is completely fenced and leased for cattle and horses. Miles of riding and hiking in the summer and cross country skiing and sledding in the winter, Mountain Bird Ranch is the perfect year-round retreat.

Pagosa Springs has the largest and deepest Hot Springs on the face of the planet. The Ute term "Pagosah" means "Healing Waters," but it has been suggested by a native Ute elder that a more accurate term would be "Stinking Waters." Every year, thousands of people from all around the world visit Pagosa, and use the Hot Springs for their world-famous mineral benefits. Here are some of the minerals that make up the amazing healing waters of Pagosa Springs.

Wolf Creek Ski Resort gets the most snow in Colorado, with 465 natural inches of annual snowfall.

Commercial air service is available through Durango-La Plata County Airport, which is has daily service with Frontier Airlines, United Express, US Airways and American Eagle.

The newly constructed "Stevens Field", a full-service AvJet FBO, in Pagosa Springs, provides private jet service capacity of up to 70,000 pounds dead weight and a 8100 x 100 foot runway.
