If you're craving mountains, forests, streams, grand vistas, and fresh air Soaring Eagle is the place for you.
Soaring Eagle is 45 minutes south of Pagosa Springs, CO and 2.5 hours north of Santa Fe, NM so this location’s advantage is being far enough from ambient lights of any city to see the stars in the night sky like your may have never seen them before so choosing to enjoy the opportunity to relax with a book or hike the 3,500 acre ranch or to just sit in the silence by yourself or with others is really what this retreat is all about.
Pagosa Springs, CO
Pagosa Springs sits at 7126 feet above sea level in the San Juan Mountains, in the Colorado Sunbelt, just 35 miles north of the New Mexico border. Boasting mild annual temperatures and plenty of sunshine, year-round, the town is surrounded by the San Juan National Forest.
Pagosa Springs is named for the Southwestern Ute word, "Pagosah" which now translates as, "healing waters." The all-natural, geothermal hot springs have been a driving attraction to the area for generations, and many believe the mineral-rich waters have healing qualities.
Chimney Rock National Monument
Just west of Pagosa Springs off of US Highway 160 and Colorado Highway 151 lies Chimney Rock National Monument. Chimney Rock National Monument is believed to be one of the most sacred sites of the Ancestral Puebloans of the Chaco Canyon. A visit to Chimney Rock is a step back in time to a way of life long gone.
