Unique Feature: Only 2 in your group? Use only the top level master suite for a reduced rate. Bringing the whole clan? We will open up the entire Casa so there is ample room for everyone! Call for details.

Casa Verde is located 5 minutes north of historic Durango Colorado in the Animas River Valley. From our front deck you can enjoy spectacular views of Durango's famous red cliffs and fourteen thousand foot peaks or watch as the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge train travels north through the valley. With TWO living rooms, a big backyard, hiking trails nearby and biking right out the front door it might be hard to leave the house! A 2007 Caldera Waterfall series hot tub with 42 jets will help you relax from all your activities.

This split level family home has a spacious open floor plan, fully equipped kitchen, and dining area that is perfect for groups and gatherings. The upstairs living area invites you to relax in our reclining leather couches in front of a crackling fire or enjoy our large flat screen TV. Downstairs you will find a second living area/den with more couches, a second TV with PS2, movies and games, a perfect relaxing or playing.

The spacious master suite is upstairs and has a beautiful handmade king size aspen log bed, travertine two person shower, walk in closet, and a small private deck overlooking the back yard. There is also a single futon and a couch you can sleep on if the kids want to stay close.

There are four well appointed bedrooms downstairs, three with queen beds and one with bunk beds. The middle bathroom has a recessed soaking tub in front of a picture window. The downstairs entrance has a large mudroom for gear and boots.

A deluxe seven person hot tub is out on the back patio. Durango Mountain Resort is only a 20 minute drive away and 5 minutes down the road is Trimble Hot Springs and Day Spa with an Olympic sized pool. There is ample parking in front for large vehicles.

About Forrest & Shona Jones

Shona and Forrest came to Durango to attend Fort Lewis College, in 1990. We have tried to leave, and spent about 4 years in San Francisco, but the Animas Valley has drawn us both back to stay. We love Durango and all the natural beauty and vibrant community it has to offer.

Forrest & Shona Jones purchased this house in 2002

Why Forrest & Shona Jones chose Durango

When we bought this house it was in rough shape, but was in our price range! We felt it would be a great place to start and raise our family. We love the property because it is surrounded by beauty and nature. The irrigation creek in the back gives the sound of water flowing all summer and waters the apple and cherry trees in the huge back yard. After a few years of work making it beautiful, we decided to start renting it to families who could enjoy it. This house is not a 'luxury' vacation home. It is very comfortable and perfect for large groups of friends or families with kids and well behaved pets who want to have fun and be comfortable in a relaxed and welcoming environment and enjoy all that Durango has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Casa Verde, is about as close to town as you can get, and feel like you are in the country. You are seconds from one of the best road bike loops in the area and minutes away from great mountain biking. As 23 year Durango locals, we live just a few miles away and are available with great ideas and advice on how to make the most of your vacation. We have always loved living in Durango, and look forward to being back in Casa Verde one day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house has been wonderful! The Four Courners Rally was great fun, and the house was great for all of us from out of state. Plenty of parking, privacy and great views. The kitchen / living areas were so comfortable for our large group.

Perfect for our family needs

  • 5 of 5
This was a great property for us. We had 5 families on a summer vacation and this was great after several days of camping. Very comfortable, plenty of space, great kitchen and the hot tub was awesome. Also, it had good parking especially considering we had 2 small trailers. Forest was great to work with and we would stay again if the need and opportunity arises. Thanks Forest!!!

White family

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from Durango, and our stay couldn't have been better. The house was the perfect size for our group, and the amenities were spot on. I got to meet Forest, he was very helpful with the house and with things for us to do and see in Durango. The house was completely furnished and had a homey feel. It was very close to the attractions and town which made it easy to get around. If we go back we would certainly stay here again.

Great place to stay in Durango!!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Verde is a great place to stay for a family or large group. We had a group of 17 that was able to fit with a few air mattresses. The house is bigger than it looks with an upstairs and downstairs living room. The hot tub was great after a long day of skiing! The location is perfect, about 5 minutes to the town and 25 to the mountain. It is a great deal for a big house with a great location. Forrest was more than accommodating and great to do business with. Would recommend this stay for anyone!!

perfect family reunion house

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely family reunion at this house. Each sibling had a room and we were able to eat and visit together. Lovely view and wonderful owners. Exit checklist would have been nice to have to mark if items needed to be fixed and items that stayed with the house. A vacumn would have been nice to have along with cleaning supplies available so we could clean a bit (ie swiffer pads for the mop).
