About Pankaj

We are two families living in Texas but whose hearts are firmly in the mountains of Colorado. We jointly made this investment as a property that our families could enjoy and are trying to offset the cost through vacation rentals. All four of us are engineering and software professionals who lead busy city lives and love to unwind in the mountains. Thankfully, due to excellent connectivity, we can also work remotely. So we love the idea of enjoying the great outdoors in picturesque South Fork without having to take vacation. And our children cannot get enough of all the activities that South Fork and its surrounding areas have to offer.

Pankaj purchased this house in 2013

Why Pankaj chose South Fork

Our families love quiet, scenic vacation spots far from large airports and loud, boisterous crowds. We have rented homes in South Fork many times and loved it more and more each time. Every trip, we dreamt of owning a home here and now we do! This piece of paradise boasts a huge riverfront for fishing, rafting, or picnics, incredible vistas in every direction, hiking in the Rio Grande forest within feet of the front door, and skiing at Wolf Creek within 15 miles.

What makes this house unique

Skiiing at Wolf Creek, snow-shoeing, hiking, rock-climbing, fishing, rafting, snow-mobiling, 4-wheeling, hunting, or just relaxing on the front porch - South Fork has it all! This luxurious two-master-suite property is perfect for two families or families with grown children. It can sleep up to 14 people - 10 in the four bedrooms and 4 more in the Great Room and the loft. The town of South Fork offers grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, and other amenities. Wolf Creek Ski Resort is within 15 miles. Ski equipment can be rented in South Fork if required.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful house, great location and access to the river and hiking. We will most definitely rent again. The renting process was easy and the owners were extra helpful in making sure we received all the information in timely manner.

One of the best homes in Southfork!

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from our ski vacation in Southfork and just loved this beautiful house. If you're driving through Southfork for the first time, this home stands out as one you might pick out from the road as "the one I'd love to stay in." Goregous cliffs all around, right on the river, deer walking up in the evenings and morning, and super-convenient to everything.

The kitchen was well appointed and we ate nearly every meal there. The rooms were large and cozy. The gas fireplace was so warm and easy to use. There were thermostats in each room so we could adjust those as needed and they were very quiet. There was plenty of hot water for all our nightly showers, dishwashing and laundry.

The owner was super-quick to respond and easy to work with. We booked last-minute and were still able to take care of all the details in a very timely manner. We had a great trip and this cabin was a big part of it!

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. It has all the amenities and tons of room for lots of guests or big families. Easy to get to! We will definitely will look to stay here again. Close to Wolf Creek for skiing or snow sports.

Leaf peeper home base in September

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and well equipped. Good location for checking fall color toward Lake City and Pagosa Springs. Unload and ride ATV from house on miles of trails in Beaver Creek area. House is large but living area could use an arrangement which would allow more seating around the fireplace / tv area. Generally good place though!

Mostly good .........

  • 3 of 5

Screen doors a must. Fought flies & chipmunks.

Kitchen poorly stocked with utensils. Not enough silverware.

Spent several dollars on mouse traps.

Wasn't aware there would be such traffic noise.

Chairs in front broken.

On the plus side: Lots of room, beds comfortable, great size, all in all a good stay. BUT SCREEN DOORS FOR SURE. Wanted the mountain air without sweeping out little chipmunks no matter how cute they are.

Thanks for asking.

Perfect Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean and cozy house. House was perfect for 2 families with 6 kids. Kids and adults had their own private spaces. Owner was very accomodating, flexible, and quick to respond. Bunk beds on the 2nd floor were a little loud and squeaky at night. We easily remedied this by moving mattresses to the floor. Easy distance to ski mountain.
