Beautiful,secluded and private setting9

  • 5 of 5
The chalet is convenient to town but secluded and private at the same time. Located in a beautiful glacier carved valley, I can not imagine a more idylic setting. The chalet was comfortable and well supplied with essentials. My grandkids loved the forested hill in back to hike and climb. This was our 2nd visit here; Hope to come back many times in the future.

Review of VRBO 271964

  • 5 of 5
This VRBO was the perfect place for our Durango vacation. The chalet is located about 4 miles from town but far enough out to enjoy wildlife in the late afternoon. Our grandchildren loved sleeping in the loft. The chalet was very inviting and comfortable. We would definitely try to stay there again when in the Durango area.

The perfect place! Peaceful & quiet, but close enough to eat out if you want.

This is the cutest cabin, so clean & the perfect spot. You're so close to nature, but if you want to run out for a bit to eat, you're not that far way from town. We had an amazing time here. We loved the huge windows in the den & saw a fox & several deer right out back. One morning several of the deer even bedded down for a nap right outside. What a lovely way to enjoy your coffee. We did a lot of hiking in other towns & this cabin is great central location. Can't recommend this place enough. Wonderful!!
