I have a one week stay in a 1 BR obtained through Skyauction coming up next month. I understand this resort is quite large and has a number of different sections. Any recommendations on which section to request?
This will be our first time in this part of Colorado, any recommendations on things to do or sights to see? We were thinking of doing either the Durango to Silverton steam excursion or the Cumbres and Toltec for one day, perhaps a drive over to Mesa Verde for another day. Hot springs and waterfall hikes near Pagosa Springs sound good too. Any recommendations for jeep type tours? TIA

Just returned from Wyndham Pagosa yesterday. I like Perigine best one level townhouse units. I owe at Quail Cove but have never stayed there, newest construction. Owners usually get Perigine so I don't know if you are owner. Nice owner's reception on Fri and Sat. we did a lot of bike riding and enjoyed the lakes and non traffic paths.

Call the resort and ask for a unit in Teal Landing or Ptarmigan. Teal Landing is the last section built and Ptarmigan has been completely renovated within the last year.

I can highly recommend the combination of the Durango & Silverton train trip coupled with an all-day zipline adventure. Pricey, but a real bargain for a once-in-a-lifetime experience (we have done it twice, it was so much fun!).

There is no "Quail Cove" section at Club Wyndham Pagosa. Club Wyndham owners get whatever HOA they reserve using their points. Teal Landing (the "newest" construction) is slightly higher points than some other HOA's.

The rental through SkyAuctions is obviously not an owner's booking.

Thanks for the advice, I will call the resort closer to our week and see if we can put in a request.

Sorry , you are right I owe at Teal Landing, not Quail Cove . I think Ptarmigan is all Worldmark now so I don't think you will be able to get an unit there.

There are more than 1,000 individually owned intervals in the Ptarmigan section. Wyndham has transferred a lot of the intervals obtained through deedbacks and foreclosures into WorldMark. For Ptarmigan to be completely WorldMark, every Ptarmigan owner would have to deedback their ownership to Wyndham through Certified Exit or default and Wyndham would have to transfer every deeded interval to WorldMark. That is unlikely to ever occur.

I requested a Ptarmigan unit on my last two RCI stays at Wyndham Pagosa because of the recent renovations, and it was no problem. The renovated units are very nice -- granite countertops, plank flooring, etc.
