ROMANTIC COTTAGE ON PRIVATE ACREAGE 5 MIN. TO DOWNTOWN-HOT TUB, INCREDIBLE VIEWS

Durango Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4-6

This private, cozy cottage is nestled on a 19 acre parcel in the East Animas Valley, just a couple of miles north of the Durango city limits. You will enter the property through an electronic gate and continue on a 500 foot private road towards the Red Hermosa Cliffs. Beyond the cliffs is nothing but picturesque forest service land for hundreds of miles. On the property there is a private, covered tennis court for your personal use and high speed internet!

This secluded property, only 2 miles from Durango, is in a beautiful river valley abundant with tall Ponderosa Pines and enormous oaks. At 6500 feet in elevation there are great views of the La Plata Mountains with a perfect combination of warm winter days and cool summer nights. Plus you are only a 25 minute drive to the Durango Mountain Ski Resort.

This home is beautifully furnished with antiques and art. The main floor has vaulted ceilings and large windows to show off mother nature's beauty, and also contains a comfortable queen size sofa sleeper. The master bedroom and bath are on the first floor, and a second bedroom with private bath is on the second floor. The granite countertop kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs, or you can barbeque on the west covered porch with the gas grill.

After a long day exploring this wonderful area, relax in the luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub and enjoy dinner on the large southern deck. Only 30 minutes away, visit the astonishing cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Lana-

You have done a wonderful job decorating and equiping the "Cottage" for your guests! We were very comfortable and really enjoyed our stay.

So much to do and see in the Durango area. Looks like a wonderful place to live!

We'll be back!

SUPERB PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed staying in this Durango home last summer! As Harley riders from Texas, this property doesn't get any better! You are in the heart of fantastic rides and can come back to soak in the hot tub in beautiful weather. The home feels miles away from it all, but was still close enough to everything you wanted to do. The privacy of the property is a plus, as is the tennis courts and plenty of space for horseshoes. The owners are very hands-on without being intrusive and are so wonderful to share this piece of heaven with others! Trust me, you won't be disappointed! We're already planning our next trip!!

FANTASTIC COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect for 2 couples! We had a fantastic time. The only thing we would change is we would cut the tops off of the trees in the front of the cottage so you could see the mountains better. Would definitely rent again. If you are looking for peace and quiet you have found it here! Drive just a couple of miles and you are in Durango! The hot tub was prefect after going to Mesa Verde and seeing the ruins. GREAT!!!! 5 stars!!!!

FANTASTIC GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Durango and enjoyed our accomodations immensely! The images on The Cottage web page are accurate but do not do the property justice as far as how private and serene the location is. We do plan on vacationing here sometime in the future!

PRIVATE AND SECLUDED MOUNTAIN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful 5 minute drive from downtown Durango to the Cottage. Once there, you drive up to the cottage through the woods to a private and secluded little house. There are two porches, one with a covered hot tub and the other with a bbq grill and comfortable patio furniture. The inside of the cottage is beautifully appointed with all the wants and needs for a week or month. The view of the upstairs room is a wonderful example of good architected design. The property was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. And also, well equipped. Watching the beautiful mountain sunset from the hot tub was a once in a lifetime experience. From this wonderful home away from home, downtown Durango is available. We experienced dining from a wide variety of cuisines. We had Parisian (Jean Pierre), Steak (Ore House), Burgers (Balcony Café), Mexican (Francisco's), Breakfast (Carver Brewing Co), Italian (Mutu's) and many others. Even found the church of our choice (St. Colombo's). Our hiking excursions included Junction Creek Trail (part of the Colorado Trail) and Animas Mountain Trail. We also enjoyed the city river walk and the many parks in town. We met some lovely Durango natives and felt very welcome. We drove over the passes to Silverton and Ouray on one day and on another day went to Mesa Verde. Both trips were well worth the drive. Spectacular scenery and relatively easy driving. It was great to be here in Summer when it is over 100 degrees in Texas, but our next visit will be in winter to experience the snow! We will be back! Gerhard, Kim and our Wire Fox Terrier, Tillie San Antonio, Texas
