Durango House Rental Photos and Description

4BR/2.5BA Sleeps 6-8

This spectacular 2100 square foot, vacation rental home is nestled in a beautiful and secluded mountain meadow.

Located only five miles from Vallecito Lake, it's a perfect place for an unforgettable, 'get-away-from-it-all' vacation where you can relax on a hammock, paddle a canoe on your own glassy pond, play a game of horseshoes, gaze into an endless starry night, and enjoy the crystal clear water and cool fresh air of Colorado mountain living. The two-story house features four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, along with a comfortable living room with an incredible floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace. A large deck wraps around the home with a covered, shaded sitting area looking out over the pond, meadow and trees.

EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures and descriptions only tell the beginning. This place is absolutely beautiful. My family of 4, including 2 teenagers and 2 dogs, absolutely loved our stay here. The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds comfortable and the views are fantastic. We did all the tourist activities in the Durango/Vallecito area, but our favorite thing to do was getting back to the cabin. Hikes on the many trails or walking the property, playing horseshoes and running the dogs until they were exhausted was the highlight of our days. Evenings were spent on the porch and then inside next to the fireplace. We kept so busy playing and talking that we never even thought about the lack of a T.V. (Please don't ever add one) We had a truck so the last mile and half was never an issue for us, but I'm not sure if I would attempt to bring a car up the last part of the road to the house. The owners answered all of our questions (even the silly ones) and mailed our deposit back the day after we left. Thanks again Greg and Jan, can't wait to come back.

SECLUDED MOUNTAIN GETAWAY FOR SOME GREAT REST & RELAXATION

Secluded Mountain Getaway for Some Great Rest & Relaxation
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I along with our 3 dogs and one of our good friends stayed at the cabin over the Memorial Day week 2014. The cabin was perfectly secluded so we could all relax in peace and get away from our daily 9-5 jobs... no cell or internet service until you're on Middle Mountain Road leading to/from the cabin! The cabin sits atop a pretty steep driveway so 4WD was a must for us due to the recent rains. The Phillip's keep a very clean cabin. It was appropriately furnished/stocked with all the major items (fully furnished kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living areas) along with a variety of outdoor/indoor games (although we only played cards and attempted the puzzle on the few days it rained...maybe an easier puzzle would be a good idea for those rainy days unless you're a whiz at puzzles!). There was plenty of dry, cut firewood for the cold nights. The pond on the property was ideal for our dogs who could go swimming after our long, hot day hikes in the nearby San Juan National Forest, Weiminuche Wilderness Area, Vallecito Lake or Durango. There are tons of hiking, sightseeing, fishing, etc. possibilities in the nearby areas! The drives to/from town are easy and certainly have beautiful views. Overall, we would highly recommend the Phillip's Middle Mountain Road Cabin to anyone looking for a secluded place in the mountains to get a little R&R!

Our family had the most wonderful time at this cabin. It is so secluded and so relaxing. Our kids wanted the camping experience so we set up a tent for them in front of the cabin to stay in while the adults slept comfortably inside the cabin in beds. It was a win win for everyone. I highly recommend this place - it brought our family closer together spending quality time in a super relaxing setting.

BIT OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
The mountain cabin was great! Just as stated, the place was extremely secluded and peaceful. The accomodations were superb. We had lots of time to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. If you want to get away from it all and your main goal is to JUST RELAX, this is your place.

OUR GREAT WEEK IN THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS

  • 4 of 5
Our Family get-together at your cabin was absolutely wonderful! We loved the peace, serenity, quick access to incredible hiking trails and beautiful scenery. It may be worthwhile to recommend that a four-wheel drive vehicle be used to access the cabin as the last mile getting to there was quite rugged. However, the location and it's remoteness is fantastic. We loved the large kitchen table where we could all sit, eat, play games, and most of all laugh together. We loved that there was no TV. The deck looking onto the pond was fabulous. Thanks for providing a great place to stay!
