With 18,000 acres of land to cover, this place is your playground. Although we encourage adventure throughout the city of beautiful Pagosa, The Pagosa Springs Golf Club is onsite and is just waiting for you to play around there. If you’re not into golf, there is lakeside fishing, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, hiking, and downhill skiing. Your days will be so filled with activity outdoors, you will never want to step back inside.
When you decide to call it for the night, relax in one of the spacious one- and two-bedroom resort suites. These suites comfortably sleep four to six guests and range from 396 to 1,295 square feet. Most suites offer one king bed in the master, two double beds in the guest room, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living area. These separate sleeping situations offer the privacy and comfort we all crave and need. At TZort, we want everyone to have a place to rest their heads at the end of the day. This is why we offer accommodations to include the entire family.
As you relax in your suite, enjoy a mini or full kitchen to keep you well-hydrated and fed. Get the entire family together and cook a nice meal as one. This a good way to save some money while still bonding with the entire family. The best meals are always the ones we make ourselves because we know how much care and effort went into them. You will also appreciate the convenience of a washer/dryer in each suite that allows you to pack light. There is nothing worse than being weighed down by a heavy suitcase. For added comfort, a whirlpool tub and fireplace are available in most suites, with a living and dining area and TVs throughout.
