SOUTHWEST COLORADO'S PREMIER VACATION RETREAT

Durango Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

Rincon Lodge is located just east of historic Durango, Colorado where you can enjoy countless seasonal activities such as golfing, horseback riding, river rafting, shopping, dining, and world-class hunting & fishing. Also nearby are Mesa Verde National Park, the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad, two ski areas (Durango Mountain Resort and Wolf Creek Ski Area), and natural healing hot spring spas.

Built in 1995-1996, the lodge itself is a magnificent 6,500 square foot custom log home with expansive wrap-around decks offering views of the majestic La Plata Mountains, the Florida Mesa, and abundant wildlife. Open floor plans, cathedral ceilings, and soaring windows provide views of deer, elk, and wild turkey seen almost daily year-round. Inside the lodge, seven bedrooms will accommodate 20 guests with room for more upon request.

The main floor has two full-size sofas as well as additional seating for comfortable relaxation and is situated around a floor to ceiling woodburning river rock fireplace with satellite television and a DVD/VCR. Several entryways provide access to covered decks with panoramic views. Private bedrooms include shared full baths and another half bath with shower just around the corner. The dining area and kitchen on the main floor feature a teak dining table easily seating ten people with additional leafs for expansion. A massive elk antler chandelier adorns the area.

The custom kitchen and center island features solid granite countertops, a six burner gas range, double ovens, and everything else even the most discerning gourmet cook will appreciate. The center island provides casual seating. The mudroom offers a full-size washer and dryer, a full upright freezer, and a large open pantry.

The lower living area also has a full-size sofa and chair seating around a second river rock fireplace and a big screen satellite television with DVD/VCR. It hosts four private bedrooms including a kids 'dorm room' with a bassinet and one shared full bath. Two entryways provide access to covered patios.

Take the log staircase to the upper level and you will find the master suite complete with a rustic aspen log frame king-size bed and two private decks with views that will take your breath away. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, double vanity, and a spacious walk-in closet that includes an extra sleeping area with futon, a ping pong table, or a secluded place to just be alone with your thoughts and relax.

Accommodations total two king-size beds, two queen-size beds, one full-size bed, four twin beds, one bunk bed, and two futon sleepers. Radiant in-floor heating is accented by oak hardwoods, carpet, slate, and saltillo tile.

In conjunction with the Lodge for larger parties, the guesthouse will sleep 4 comfortably. Situated as a studio apartment or 'mother-in-law' quarters above the 3 car garage, it offers the same stupendous views and peaceful settings as the Lodge, located approximately 60 yards directly north.

Located at 7487', the fully fenced 76 acres of ponderosa and juniper pine covered ground around the lodge offer endless nature trail hiking, snowshoeing, snow sledding, mountain biking, picnicking, barbecuing, horseshoes, and a ski run in the winter months to keep busy during your stay.

Complimentary wireless internet throughout the property.

RINCON LODGE has something for everyone! With its spaciousness, unmatched beauty and peaceful surroundings, it is an ideal vacation spot for weddings, family and school reunions, or executive corporate retreats. For more information, please contact us at 303-362-0964 or e-mail!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family recently gathered from 7 states and loved staying at this wonderful lodge. It was even nicer than we expected. The view from the wrap around porch was wonderful. The entire place is very well furnished. We have never stayed anywhere before with such a well equipped kitchen. There is a very nice pantry/utility room area which has lots of storage shelves and extra large kettles. We found the attached garage area and storage very handy also. We all agreed that this wonderful location was a real plus toward making this our best reunion yet.

THE LODGE OF VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
The perfect place in Durango to relax and unwind. The wrap-around porch is perfect for morning coffee and evening cookouts. The lodge easily slept 15 with large bedrooms and comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully stocked for all cooking needs, along with 2 large TVs and a ping pong table. Not that one needs to spend much time at the lodge with so many activities in and around Durango. My highlight was watching the evening 'fireworks' of lightening storms (in July) from the porch. The porch has 250 degree (probably more) views from high atop the ridge, making for the perfect place to begin or end your day.

FAMILY RENTED FOR NEARBY WEDDING SEPT. 2011

  • 5 of 5
Our family from Houston, Texas area rented the lodge and guesthouse for a 4 night stay for our sons wedding in Ignacio. It was absolutely perfect !!! With each family having a seperate room and multiple bathrooms, no one had problems with privacy. The views from the porches are breath-takingly fantastic, even though it was rainy the first 3 days, we did had intermittent clear times. I must also confess until we had been up the driveway(and it goes UP, it winds around the mountain) a few times in the rain, at times it was scarey, but when dry or after it was packed it was perfect also!!! Scott, the caretaker, was great and very helpful with any questions we had.

We would highly recommend The Palace Rest. they have very good food (we had our Rehearsal Dinner there and they were great); the train to Silverton was magnificent... long, but well worth the time (a great way to see the countryside without hiking or biking !!); we also viewed the nearby Mancos-Mesa Verde Annual Balloon Festival... it was awesome !!!! see it if you can; take the time to tour Mesa Verde National Park - give it at least 1/2 a day.... the views are spectacular and ancient Indian culture was amazing.

To sum it all up, the photos of the house and surroundings are very accurate and the property was very clean and well maintained. We would absolutely recommend this listing to anyone - friend or family. We have already discussed having family reunions here in the future !!!! WE LOVED IT !!!

AWESOME PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about Rincon Lodge. Spent it there the second week of June with my parents, our family and my brothers in celebration of my parents' 50th wedding anniversary and am still thinking of it. From the booking to checking in and checking out - everything was flawless except one thing....the photos in every website you'll see about this place just don't do it justice. The view is much more spectacular and the place is unbelievably more spacious (we had 12 people and had plenty of room to escape from each other) and high end. Scott, the caretaker, and Marty, the owner were great to work with. We've stayed around the world in different homes and would recommend this one to everyone who wants to get away from it all in mountain paradise!

A WONDERFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 16 and had a great time. The house is so well built, with no drafts, no noise between levels, and a place for everyone. We had a fire going the entire time and the sun room/mud room with its tile floor was the perfect place to leave all our outer gear as we entered the lodge. Plus there was room left over to set up a card table and four chairs (they thought of everything!). We were able to sit ten or eleven at the dining table and four or five people at the bar (with stools, on the dining side of the kitchen). There was every kind of pot or pan you could ask for, including a frying pan large enough to hold sauce and spaghetti for a crowd of sixteen (great for frying eggs in the morning, too). Every kind of kitchen equipment, including a coffee-bean grinder and two coffee makers, a hand-held mixer with its own storage holder, and a generous pantry to store all the food supplies.. AND there was a half-bath off the pantry (with its own shower, so more than a half-bath). The only thing we could have used was more refrigerator space - with that large a group. There was a stand-up freezer, but we didn't use it. Our only regret was it was too cold to sit out on the balcony, although we often walked out on it to drink in the view from three sides of the lodge. The same spectacular view overlooking a valley of trees and open ground could be seen from the master suite on two sides and one of the corner bedrooms on the main floor. Even the first floor, where most of the bedrooms were, had a view of the property, so lots of light in every room. The ping-pong room was a place of nightly gatherings for an on-going tournament and there was enough space that the smaller children could play on their own, out of the way of the ping-pong players. Plus a table large enough (with two chairs and good lighting) to set out a 500-1,000 piece puzzle. The ping-pong room had a wonderful glass wall at one end that overlooked the back of the lodge and the garage and its living quarters above; again, lots of light, but warm inside. All in all, a terrific place to be.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review! We have just replaced the full size freezer with an additional refrigerator, provided a laptop computer for guest use, installed a play set for our younger guests, and replaced the patio furniture. Hope to see you party again!

RINCON RIDGE

  • 5 of 5
House was exactly as described. Not only was it fully equiped, but had more dishes, pots & pans, and other stuff than would ever be expected. Ten adults, five children, and one teenager stayed there and everyone had a great time. I would definitely plan to stay there again if viisting Durango with extended family. It was clean and well maintained. Beautiful house, wonderful location and view. Only problem might be getting access if it snowed. I was a little concerned we might see snow over Thanksgiving, but no problems getting up to the lodge. while there we went bowling at the casino, went to see Mesa Verde, and hiked up a mountain my daughter knew about.

WHAT A PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We didn't find anything that was not needed, plenty of everything was found! The kitchen was very well equipped. We enjoyed many group activities in your home, everyone still had their own private space to escape and enjoy solitude also. Thank you again for a wonderful week! See you next year!
