This cabin and location really exceeded all my expectations for a summer get-a-way in greater Durango and the San Juans. I debated a lot on location. Close to town or somewhere just away from the crowds and tucked into a perfect mountain forest?. Choose to get away and select this cabin near Electra Lake. The cabins is about 30 mins from downtown Durango and the drive is gorgeous both up and down. We didn't get tired of driving and we did all the Durango mainstays -the DSNG railroad and Mesa Verde which did require some driving and time from this location. The best part was we'd leave the heat of Durango or Mesa Verde (about 1 hour) and escape to our cabin to find it cool and breezy. As for the cabin itself, it has everything as described. A perfect deck for grilling and a cozy/romantic hot tub. The sleeping rooms are spacious and beds very well appointed and comfortable. I particularly liked the kitchen and layout. Was easy to fix quick meals with adequate counter space, very nice oven/stove and comfortable seating for 4 around the large round table. This cabin also balances the need for privacy and also feel like you are not alone in the woods. It is set down into a simply stunning forested neighborhood with high end log cabins and lovely vacation homes around. But it faces the back of the ridge in such a way, you get plenty of privacy on your deck and hot tub. One morning while drinking coffee we saw a beautiful pair of Mule Deer come through the back. Finally, if you haven't been to the San Juans of Colorado but visited other Colorado mountain communities, be prepared to be blown away by the San Juans. They are simply stunning at every turn. High, ragged and gorgeous. Comparing them to Switzerland is not an understatement and I have been going to Colorado for over 25 years. I simply fell in love with the area and this spacious and delightful cabin is the perfect base camp to explore them. Your hosts are also lovely and gracious and will answer any questions. They provide a lovely guide of their personal favorites of the area - hikes, attractions and restaurants. We felt so welcome and confident in our stay.
