The First Inn of Pagosa is located along the banks of the San Juan River and in downtown Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
We are located near the junction of Highways 84 and 160. Blue ribbon river fishing, rafting and hot air ballooning await you. Our gazebo and cook out facilities are located out our back door next to the mile long city parks river walk.
Visit to ski "The Most Snow in Colorado", Wolf Creek averages an amazing 465 inches of annual snowfall! Soak and enjoy The Pagosa Hot Springs "Naturally Hot Therapeutic Mineral Pools."
Pagosa Springs enjoys a moderate four-season climate 300 plus sunny days per year and very little wind. The spring and summers are cool, and comfortable. The annual precipitation is 18 inches.
