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.

Superb place to get away from it all!!!!

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!!

Private and secluded mountain home!

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!

Owner's Response: Thanks Gerhard, Kim & Tillie for a wonderful review on the Cottage! Sounds like you were very busy during your stay in Durango. I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet you. Come back and see us again sometime! Thanks for being terrific guests, Lana

A comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting!!

A well appointed, two bedroom cottage that is within 10 minutes of Durango. We enjoyed our early morning strolls past fields of sheep and horses. An occasional elk herd appeared in the valley, as did a marmot getting his daily sunbath. The property manager provided a very personal touch with helpful notes and suggestions for sightseeing. Would definitely stay here again.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Hope to have you back again next summer!

The Best of All Worlds

It is difficult to describe this wonderful wee cottage and its feel. It is secluded and restful, full of light, cozy and yet open, beautifully appointed and close to ALL of the fun activities Durango has to offer. I felt that I was in my own home. Everything had been thought out and provided so meticulously. I was by myself part of the time and had company, including an VERY active three year old, and the house accommodated it all quite easily. The description and the amenities were accurate. It was immaculate and everything was extremely well-maintained. The owners were so professional and gave great customer service. I enjoyed biking, going to Music in the Mountain concerts, going to the hot springs and just being quiet reading books. I would certainly recommend this quaint cottage to friends and relatives. In fact, I have already booked it for the summer of 2014.

Owner's Response: Lovely review Mary! Thank you! We will look forward to welcoming you back next year! Until then.... All the best! Lana

Talk about the perfect location! Your backyard is the acclaimed Red Hermosa Cliffs where numerous Red Tail Hawk nests thrive. Your front yard is pasture land overlooking the Animas River where herds of elk can be seen on numerous days. On the quiet county road you will see many bicycle riders, runners, and walkers. Enjoy the private, covered tennis court and luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub.

Take a hike behind the cottage and be rewarded with magnificent views of the city of Durango and the river valley. Don't forget to ride the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad!

This is truly the perfect location in Durango! You are close to everything while still in a private, cozy setting. The bakery is three minutes away; great restaurants within five to ten minutes; gamble at the Ute Mountain Casino 20 minutes away; the supermarket is six minutes away and the Durango Mountain Ski Resort is 25 minutes away. Don't forget to visit the spectacular cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde!
