Guestbook comments from the owner
ALL 12 families that rented our house in 2009 including multigenerational groups from toddlers to seniors LOVED their time in our home and had a fabulous time enjoying all the wonderful attractions Durango has to offer from here! We had many weekly guests including guests from Great Britain and one family that stayed for a month and had their families visit them here too! EVERYBODY FOUND OUR HOUSE TO BE THE PERFECT DURANGO VACATION RETREAT!
Daniel & Polly Morgenstern
Both musicians, and retired CEO (Daniel) and Lawyer (Polly) have a great love of the outdoors and adventure. They have chosen Durango as the place they most wanted to live in, and continue their adventures in the great mountain west and around the globe.
Having been privileged to travel extensively throughout the United States and much of the world, we found Durango to be the BEST place we could choose to live in. Because we keep traveling in our motor home etc, our lovely home is available for guests to rent while we are out adventuring further.
In this day and age, natural beauty and the privacy to enjoy it without intrusion is a rare benefit amply provided by our beautiful mountain home.
