There is a two car attached garage with a propane grill. Please use it on the driveway as there is a fire danger in the area so I do not want to put this on the decks.

The front porch is large and has a kids picnic table. The back deck is huge with a large table, 6 chairs, one chaise, and a smaller table. Lots of entertaining and meals will be out on the deck.

Located in the area is a private 25 acre lake which is stocked for excellent fishing and does not require a license as it is a private lake or a picnic is just minutes away.

Small pets are accepted with a $50 fee per pet. There is a limit of two (2) small pets. ( A small pet to me is an animal less than 20 pounds). Please keep outside animals outside. Please no pets on any of the furniture. Please clean up after your pet around the house.

About Staley Faulkner

My wife and I are extremely blessed to have this house in Bayfield. We currently live in Austin, TX and have been looking for property in the Durango/Pagosa Springs area for several years. My wife's family is from the area and I fell in love with it 25 years ago when I first visited. Our children are grown and they truly love the property to bring their friends for a vacation away from it all.

Staley Faulkner purchased this house in 2012

Why Staley Faulkner chose Durango

This home is so convenient to everything. Close to Durango and an airport with major airlines, close to the Hot Springs of Pagosa Springs, Vallecito Reservoir is right up the road and several ski areas within an hour to two hour drive. Fly fishing, hunting and any and all outdoor activities are minutes away.

What makes this house unique

This house is at the end of a road so you will not get much if any traffic. Neighbors are friendly and close enough in case of emergency but out of your view unless you look real hard into the distance. Sitting on the back deck is the most amazing thing about the house. Watch turkey, mule deer, elk, fox, and other wildlife while sitting on the deck enjoying the day.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything that we needed. There was plenty of space for out family of six. We enjoyed the remoteness of the house. It was a much needed change from the city life. Durango wasn't too far away for shopping & the Durango-Silverton train ride. My dad & kids enjoyed fishing at the lake. My three year old had fun sitting on the saddle in the house and going up and down the stairs to the loft. The deer were plentiful and we even saw two bears! The mornings & evenings were a nice time to sit out on the deck. There were a couple rain showers that the kids played in. My family will definitely be back if we vacation in this area again. Thanks for making your house available for renting.

Our stay at Bayfield Forest Lakes Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at this property. This home has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. It is well stocked with all the necessities to make your stay as convenient as possible. We enjoyed relaxing on the back porch, taking walks, or just lounging around inside the house. We have friends in Durango who visited us at the rental and we had plenty of room to entertain. I believe the ad says around 12-13 people can sleep comfortably in this home. This is definitely true!! The location is a little remote but with that comes the enjoyment of having privacy. The drive to the nearest shopping really isn't too far and if you are wanting to sight see or do other excursions you can do so without having to drive too far. We would definitely come back if we have the opportunity!!

Just got back from our stay in this beautiful cabin. The cabin is welcoming and located in a beautiful community. We saw tons of deer, a fox and a bear! Spent some time fishing at the lake in the community and the kids caught several rainbow trout for dinner. We will be back. Loved it!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation house. It has everything you might need. The upstairs is so cool. Our kids loved it. The back deck was our favorite spot! Be sure to watch for the chipmunks and deer in the mornings. Star gazing in the evening was wonderful too. It was almost as if you could literally touch the stars! You get much more than you pay for here.

What a BLESSING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the absolute perfect cabin for our 'girls retreat' in Durango. We needed a unique sleeping arrangement, for 5 teenage girls, and 3 leaders...and the loft space in Monica & Staley's cabin was ideal. With FIVE beds up in the cozy loft, plus the sitting-area with tv & couches, our girls had their own special space to hang out. The large master bedroom has a huge king bed & spacious bath, and the 2nd bedroom is beautifully outfitted with antiques & a comfy queen bed.

We also loved the open design of the kitchen, living room, & dining room. Whether sitting at the table, couches, or washing dishes in the kitchen, we were able to interact & stay connected. Everything was clean & new, from the armchairs to the bar stools (gorgeous!), and we felt pampered in opulence. The wood-burning stove warmed us up in the evenings, & filled the space with the wonderful ambience of 'cabin-in-the-woods.'

This cabin is in fact, literally the end of cul-de-sac, with nary a neighbor in sight, amidst the grandeur of staggeringly tall Ponderosa Pines. The deck was perfect for a sunny afternoon picnic lunch; peaceful and spacious. It took us about 35 minutes to get into either Bayfield or Durango, where there are lotsa fun things to do. We especially enjoyed Full Blast Zipline, Trimble Hot Springs, East By Southwest Sushi, & window shopping in downtown Durango.

The best part of renting this cabin was connecting with the owners! (No, we aren't old friends or anything...found 'em on VRBO, just like you!) They have provided everything you'll need for a nice long stay, including plenty of linens, extra blankets & pillows, kitchen dishes, pots & pans, paper products, utensils, plus basic spices & condiments. Monica & Staley were easy to work with, friendly & helpful, and are even sending me the overnight bag I accidentally left in the gorgeous master bathroom!

The next time we visit Durango, with my family, or to have another 'girl's retreat' - we will definitely rent this wonderful cabin!
