The lord and lady of this manor had never been to Colorado before 2002.  They came that year to visit friends, saw and admired Echo Manor Inn and took a picture of because it was so pretty and the lady loves English Tudor Style.  The next year in 2003 they visited their friends again and the Inn was for sale! They fell in love with Pagosa and bought the Inn and have been renovating it ever since. They have done the designing, wallpapering, faux painting and decorating for the remodel themselves, but have been greatly assisted and could not have done this project from afar without their contractor, subcontractors, engineers and teams for the multiple structural changes and updates in this vast endeavor.  Continued...

Each room has a new pillow top mattress, non allergenic pillows and down alternative bedding for maximum comfort and allergy avoidance.  Since this is a family home, (with several members very allergy sensitive) we are not able to allow pets.  However, we welcome horses in the barn and pastures!

“Cumberland” is a large master bedroom located by the back staircase near the kitchen/laundry, butler’s pantry, previously the caretakers quarters.  You will sleep like a queen and king in this beautifully carved four poster bed.  Angle walls painted in Victorian red are set off beautifully by the rich beams and ornate chandeliers and sconces in this room that has a bay window.  In addition to the bed that sleeps two, there is plenty of floor space in this room for sleeping young children. This room has a private, master bathroom with oval Jacuzzi tub that looks out to picture windows on two sides, double sinks encased in an antique dresser, tiffany style vanity lights and chandelier to give you a luxurious experience.

“White Loft” is also located across the stairway bridge, and above the side mudroom entry.  Walls have been taken down to give a café style view from this lovely location.  A white “Claudia” daybed can be enjoyed as a reading/napping/sleeping spot.  This is a twin daybed, comfortably sleeping one adult or two small children along with floorspace for a sleeping bag or two if desired.  An alcove hides a white desk to write a letter as you gaze out the window to Echo Lake.  A French bistro set provides a whimsical place to converse as you view and peek to three other levels of the home. This is an extra sleeping area in addition to the ten bedrooms.  Since it is an open, walled area, this would be ideal for kids or an adult that would have connections to those in the Sage Room.

“Ansley” is located opposite from “Sage” room at the top of the entry staircase, left of the bridge, looking down onto the Great Room as you enter a beautiful floral themed room and private full bath done in pinks and hunter greens.  Upholstered furniture, border and artwork have roses, tulips and flowers as its theme.

This room has an Alice bench, ornate roses chandelier and whimsical figurines to remind you of the Lewis Carrol classic.

Toys can be borrowed and played with in “Pixies” and memories will be made we are sure!  Two can sleep comfortable in the fairies room.  The full bath off the hallway just a few feet away would be the logical bathroom for the “Pixies” and “Antoinette” bedrooms to share.  In addition, there is another full bathroom across from the kitchen available for common use not slated for any bedroom in particular.

Periwinkle” is the upper master bedroom done in the favorite color of the lady of the manor.  This formerly was the bridal suite.  It has French doors, bay windows, access to the upper balcony, and gorgeous views.  There are four crystal chandeliers and sconces in the bedroom and master bath.  This room is fresh and beautiful all done in periwinkles and whites.  A four poster, light blue queen iron canopy bed is positioned so one wakes  up to majestic views that take your breath away!

Hawaii” is the suite at the very tip top of the house and has the best views of all!  You’ll get there by ascending the small spiral stairway at the end of the upper hall. This area has two small bedrooms connected by a narrow open hallway with a full sized bed and two twin beds. One of the bed alcoves has three windows with views of the horse corrals, Echo Lake and farms, and the back mountain view. The front small bedroom has a leaded glass style window with views of Echo Lake. It is decorated in vintage Hawaii missionary style theme. A banana leaf fan light and leafed design chandeliers grace this room. A large full bathroom is in the center of these two connecting spaces. This most likely would be a suite for children with smaller luggage to maneuver the spiral staircase, or for parents and small children to be cozy together in!  It would comfortably sleep three or perhaps four kids, but recommended for kids over ten years old.

Additional sleeping options: There are three queen sized couchbeds located in the three living room areas, and floorspace is prevalent for sleeping bags as well.

Common Areas:

Great Room:  As you enter the front door, the Great Room beckons you in with the cherub wall fountain, cathedral windows, pair of French doors, huge chandelier and clock, various seating areas and a plasma TV off to the left side. Enjoy a game of foosball as well!  A hunter green side entry, or mud room is a good idea for snow season and leads to the front entry as well. This is a good group gathering room, great for parties, luncheons or casual get togethers and reunions.  Continued...

Rapunzel’s lookout:  This is at the end of the hallway just for fun.  We rounded out the baluster rail to give a fairytale look as you gaze up or down from this viewing spot. It is a lovely picture spot. You can see the front entry, mud room and Great Room from this vantage.

Deep, rich, wood pegged custom flooring are throughout this space and lower hallway and family room with area rugs for added texture and comfort.

to take a meal in or relax and read or visit with friends. A doorway leads to the outside front of the house, and another leads to an additional guest quarters.
