Guestbook comments from the manager

Xmas 2010- We had a wonderful and idyllic Xmas break. Durango is a fantastic place and the area has lots of outdoor opportunities. We skied Purgatory twice (one day in 2 feet of powder!!!) snowshoed at Valllecito Reservoir, hiked part of the Colorado Trail and also the trail behind the house, made it to the top of Animas mountain, enjoyed Mesa Verde in the snow (spectacular!) and drove across Molas Pass to Silverton and Ouray. We're are looking forward to being back!

Much Needed Serenity

  • 5 of 5
We came to CO to initiate a new motorcycle and to enjoy some much overdue relaxation. We were excited by the pictures, but they didn't even do the property justice. The bed was very comfortable, the outdoor patio a terrific resting spot while we prepared dinner, and the screen porch was the ultimate.
Everything we might have needed was already there, and I was still discovering little touches after 4 days. The 'Welcome Guide' was very comprehensive--any visitor question was addressed.
As we were tired after each day, being away from the tourist hassle was the perfect setting for us. Town and attractions were close and easy to find, but we weren't forced to be among the summer crowds unless we chose.
The views were amazing, and we even got to enjoy the rock climbers while sitting on the patio. Lana was the perfect hostess, and we even extended our stay. It was the perfect retreat.

Nice, but the mattresses need replacement

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for our honeymoon. It was beautiful, clean, and private, and the views were gorgeous. We had access to almost everything we needed in the kitchen, except that basic things like measuring spoons and cups would have been helpful.
Our primary complaint is that the bed is actually two twin mattresses placed next to each other, and we constantly slipped into the crevice between them (not so romantic...). For the cost of renting this place, an actual queen- or king-sized mattress would be very much appreciated.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you had a happy honeymoon stay with us! Sorry to hear you couldn't find the measuring cups and spoons? They were in the utility drawer next to the knives etc. The mattress has been replaced as well. Hope to have you back to celebrate your first year with us! All the best! Lana

A Little Gem Tucked Amongst the Trees

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was immaculately clean and stocked with everything you might need on your vacation. The wood interior was warm and cozy. It was just as described although quite small, perfect for a couple's romantic getaway. Although so close to downtown Durango, it felt far away in the country, very peaceful and private. We would definitely come again and recommend this lovely little cabin to friends and family.

Aspens in the Fall

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I took our second trip to Durango in the last two years and decided to stay in a property other than the city hotels. We selected this cabin due to its proximity to town and privacy. We were not disappointed and very pleased with the choice we made. The cabin was cozy and met all of our needs for the long weekend. The screened-in porch was our favorite spot and provided an early evening happy hour haven for us. The cabin's location provided easy access to Durango's shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities. We will highly consider staying at the property again on our next visit to Durango. The reservation transaction would have been easier and felt more secure with the use of credit cards. All in all, a wonderful vacation.

Perfect and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this cozy little cabin very much! It was the perfect distance from downtown. The cabin felt secluded, but was a mere 5 mins. from a very charming downtown Durango. We did the whole train thing, and would say that it is an experience that can't be missed! It was worth the price to choose the Alamosa car for the ride. It's a long day and the extra comfort and services was worth it. We drove much of the San Juan By-Way and stopped at many of the small towns along the way. We especially enjoyed the quaint town of Ouray. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking! Would defiantly come back to Durango and stay at Lana's cozy cabin!

ADORABLE CABIN, PERFECT GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Lana's cabin was absolutely perfect. It was adorable and just the right size for my husband and I on our 10 year anniversary vacation. The cabin was clean and furnished with all the right necessities. We grilled out several evenings and enjoyed almost all of our meals on patio while soaking in the views and the fresh mountain air. The location was perfect - just a few minutes to town. We were SO THANKFUL we chose this cabin...it was so quiet. No town/traffic noise...just the sounds of sheep (at the farm across the street), birds, & crickets...and the distant sound of the Durango/Silverton train whistle at 8:30am & 5pm. The property has woods and bluffs right in the backyard - very fun to explore & take pictures. During our stay, we enjoyed the 75 mile drive from Durango to Ouray - no words to describe the beauty of this drive! We also enjoyed the easy and close access to mountain biking and hiking trails - definitely recommend the Horse Gulch Trail and the Hermosa Creek Trail. We had a wonderful time and are anxiously awaiting our next trip to Colorado. Lana, thank you very much for a very memorable vacation. We definitely will utilize this property (or one of your other beautiful properties!) for our future vacations!!!
