Durango House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Experience Lightner Creek- Durango's best-kept secret

(the movie 'City Slickers' was filmed at the end of the road)

Our secluded moutain chalet's entrance is over a private bridge, which crosses the beautiful Lightner Creek and winds through cottonwood trees up to the house. The chalet itself abuts the mountainside & has its own private trail up to the famed 'Mushroom Rocks' plateau (where you can find 1000 yr old Anasazi Indian artwork along the ridge). Look out the expansive windows & high beam aspen ceilings of the home & you will be breathtaken by a few acres of diverse, magnificently landscaped terrain. Some of the features are a private, spring-fed pond stocked with monster rainbows, a couple private beaches & fireplace area on Lightner Creek, & meadows of aspen, cottonwood, pine & fruit trees. It is worth mentioning the fenced-in acreage make great ball fields, playground for kids & adults alike (in the winter, you can sled down the base of the mountain).

The property itself was built in 1997 with expansive windows & high beam ceilings. We have recently remodeled much of the home, including new hardwood floors, river rock fireplace hearth & entire build-out of 1st floor, which includes a large, carpeted kids' playroom. All of the furniture and linens in the home are brand new, which include a beautiful office area w/reclining lounge chair for reading.

I'm sure you already know about all that Durango has to offer & will just mention again that our 24 secluded acres are less than 4 miles from downtown & all the exceptional restaurants.

Back to our location- we are surrounded on three sides by Perin's Peak State Park, which means some of the best hiking/biking is right out the front door (pick up a guidebook & you will see Dry Fork Loop, Colorado Trail, Twin Buttes, Barnroof Point & Perin's Peak are all within walking distance of our home). If you really want the mountain 'Durango experience,' while being close to historic downtown, you have found the ideal place. It is very rare to find a secluded 24 acres, with functional flat acreage, creek, natural pond and a private mountainside, just 5 minutes to town. Even if you don't stay with us the first time in Durango, please drive by & I bet you will call us on your next vacation to Durango.

This beautiful property was very cozy for our family with the warm fireplace, well-equipped kitchen, comfy bedrooms, and beautiful views. The kids especially enjoyed the sledding on the mountainside right outside the front door. We also all loved the historic town of Durango and all it's offerings; the train, great restaurants, friendly people, and Durango Mtn. Ski Resort! We are coming back!

We arrived to this beautiful property during a big snowstorm. The place was very cozy for our family with the warm fireplace, well-equipped kitchen, comfy bedrooms, and beautiful views. Our kids especially enjoyed the sledding on the mountainside right out the front door. We also all loved the historic town of Durango-the train, great restaurants, friendly people, and Durango Mtn. Ski Resort! We hope to visit again soon!

Great time had by all!

This was truly a great property. We didn't spend much time in it during the middle of the day, because we were out doing all the wonderful activities (e.g. Silverton train, Mesa Verde, melodrama, Ouray, etc.). But we really enjoyed the early mornings and evenings in and around the house. Our family of 7 (5 kids) fit very nicely. It was quite nice to have the basement for a couple of our teenagers. They loved it and it made for a quieter house:). I think my seventeen year old summed it up quite nicely when, at the end of the week, he said this was the best vacation ever! We all had a very relaxing/rejuvenating weeklong visit greatly appreciate your efforts to make it such a welcoming place. We'll hopefully see you again soon!

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

This house was perfect for our family reunion trip. We ranged in age from 91 to 4 and there were plenty of activities to keep us all busy. We particularly enjoyed spending the evenings on the wrap around deck, watching the wildlife. Chris sent us some information before our trip to help plan some excursions and he also had plenty of brochures and books available at the house. The hike up the trail to Mushroom Rocks was well worth the effort. It is a beautiful property. Thanks, Chris!

Beautiful, quiet, and spacious home in Durango

Took 3 couples and our two children there for Memorial Day 2013. Had a wonderful time. The home is spacious - more than enough room. Excellent for kids with the large carpeted basement, which has another separate bedroom and bathroom. It was perfect for our family. Beautiful views; nicely appointed home. The owner was also very welcoming, accommodating and helpful. I hope to be back soon!
