About Rod Foss

We purchased this property for our future retirement home. I love to boat and due all the water activities but do not want to travel great distances. The home is super cozy and we can do day trips very easy. My wife has put her personal touch in to the home which make a huge difference in the homes comfort.

Why Rod Foss chose New Mexico

Because of it is very private and unique.

What makes this house unique

This home is a perfect example of southwest living and lets you explore what our area has to offer.

Awesome! Just Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Every year a group of us come up to the San Juan for a week of fishing and fellowship. This was our third stay at Rodney's house and it is always perfect.

The location is right in the middle of the local fly shops and restaurants in Navajo Dam. You could really walk to it all. There is the river, right out back, but we rarely fish there. We normally go up to the quality waters. The house has everything and Rodney is always a pleasure to work with. Every year we talk about using the fire pit and the grill and have yet to do it. Always to tired from a long day fishing.

Maybe next year. We really do love this place.

Thanks Rodney for another great year!

Great house and owner

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house a couple times now and the owner and the house have always been great. Very comfortable and clean.

On our last stay, the owner had added a couple roll away beds which is a nice touch. The pull out couch in one of the TV rooms is about as comfortable as you expect but, we brough an air mattress to put on it this year and it was perfect.

The washer & dryer make returning from a fishing trip much nicer! Direct TV and Verizon Wifi are nice touches too.

Walk able to fly shops, the 2 restaurants/bars

Will absolutely come back!

Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

This is a really comfortable place to stay when fishing the San Juan below Navajo Dam. Clean, well stocked will all essentials, and right on the river. This is a remote area with limited cell service (for ATT), and slow internet connections. Otherwise, a great place, especially for the fishing -- which is what this area is all about.

Beautiful View Cabin on San Juan River!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful early fall weekend at this cabin on the river. Very well kept up, clean, nice grill, all the kitchen items you need. Had several campfires to enjoy the cool nights & beauitul moon. The views from the deck are fabulous! The gas fireplace in the living room warmed us up every cool morning. We enjoyed our days on the lake with a pontoon boat, & our evenings cooking together with friends. If it had a hot tub...it would be most excellent! We will be back!

Awesome home to rent for a group of fishermen

  • 5 of 5

The house is all that is pictured and more. We enjoyed each day by getting up and making a hearty breakfast, going fly fishing for the whole day and returning for a home cooked dinner each evening. Then sit around and enjoy each other's "fish stories" of the day!

The front room is essentially a 4th bedroom consisting of a sofa bed that has a separate door from the living room for privacy. The house has a wraparound deck overlooking the San Juan River and is walking distance from the Back Cast Cafe, The Sportsmen or Abe's restaurant and convenience stores. If coming in from Aztec or Durango it is best to get all your supplies before getting to the house. There is limited food supplies in the immediate area.

All that you needed and the pantry is well stocked with whatever has accumulated from the past renters. Nothing old but a good supply of stuff you always need.

I have been coming to fish each year for the past 6 or 7 years and will now continue to rent this house!

Thanks again to the Owner!
