There are only a handful of vacation rental properties in the Durango area that have the exquisite views and location that this cozy log cabin offers. But don't worry - it is easy to get to even in the winter!!
As you drive to The Primrose Mountain Cabin, the peace of the aspen and spruce forest envelopes you. Don't be surprised to see deer or elk on the way. When you step out of your car the jaw dropping views will entrance you.
No matter the season the Primrose Mountain Cabin is the pefect place for your Durango vacation. The pristine beauty of this area, just 20 minutes north of Durango and 12 minutes south of the Durango Mountain Ski and Summer Resort, just seems to take you to another peaceful world. Here you will appreciate an area that has not been over developed and retains its rugged mountain beauty and historic western charm.
The Primrose Mountain Cabin is an immaculate little piece of heaven with a large living and dining area off of which is the front deck and its breathtaking views. A perfect place for a barbecue or just to relax. A newly added sunroom provides a second area for family fun. (For example, it provides a second peaceful living area in case part of the family does not want to watch T.V. in living room.)
In the winter you can catch the twinkling of the sun off the snowscapes out your large floor to ceiling windows or snuggle by the fire. You are in someplace special - away from the highrises and the crowds. You really get a feel for being in the Colorado mountains.
The cabin sleeps 8 with a king bed in the loft bedroom. The second bedroom, with a queen bed, has its own sitting area, bathroom and deck (and of course the views). The third bedroom also offers a queen bed. There is also a double sofa bed in the main living room.
Watching the big game or a movie is a treat with the
42'HD T.V with Blue Ray in the living room. Each bedroom has its own T.V. so everyone gets to watch what they want!
There are cabins ...but what makes this cabin very special are the two private decks that overlook the incredible valley below and facing 11,000 ft 'Hermosa Cliffs'. (We call them cliffs, vistors call them mountains!) You are in the heart of the mountains but an easy 20 minute drive to downtown Durango. What location could be more perfect??
The easy hike to the beautiful Electra Lake makes this location even more perfect. You can enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, or dining on the lake in an historic sporting club built in 1929. Once you get to the lake, the views over the lake and mountains are breath taking! Haviland Lake is also a 5 minute drive. Wonderful fishing can be found here too. There are trails around and near the lake that will take you to some incredible scenery. Even our weather, with over 300 days of sunshine almost no humidty and powdery snow in winter is near perfect.
If the kids want to swim or you would like to work out there is a fitness center with indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool and day spa just 4 minutes away at The Tamarron Resort. Or enjoy Trimble Hot Springs or The Durango Recreation Center for more swimming options.
Just 12 minutes north is the Durango Mountain Resort (formerly Purgatory) where almost every winter sport and activity is available. In the summer it offers concerts, world class mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, jeeping, and more. Top rated golf courses are just minutes away.
Twenty minutes south is the Western historic town of Durango with shops, resturants, and home to the famous Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. You can enjoy white water rafting, rodeos, hot springs, and more. Mesa Verde, home of the ancient 'Cliff Dweller American Indians' is a short drive away. Since this cabin is at about 8400 feet it is often ten degrees cooler than downtown Durango and enjoys summer temperatures in the 70s and 80s and cool mountain night sleeping!
What an amazing cabin. We came for our family vacation and have had the most amazing time. The view is awesome. We got to see lots of wild life including a herd of elk in the fields you can see from the back deck. We could not have asked for a better place to spend our family time.
We will recommend and be back to the Primrose Cabin. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Our stay at the Primrose cabin was exceptional. It's in a beautiful location and just 6 miles from Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory). So many cabins have one or two beds and then a pull-out, but this has three very comfortable beds. The living area is bright and I LOVE the sunroom. The cabin is beautifully decorated and I felt quite at home there. The property manager was easy to contact and very accommodating. Thank you!
This cabin is a great place to get away, relax, and enjoy time with the family. Everything you need is at the house already. The only thing is you should bring your own coffee machine since the one there takes 3 hours to brew 8-10 cups. Very nice patio with a grill, table, chairs, and a great view. We were lucky enough to see some snow that came down the week before. Cabin is clean and well taken care of. We will definitely be coming back.
This cabin was a perfect mix of rustic but modern, and I loved the bear theme throughout. With three couples and a 5-year-old, the home offered adequate privacy even with the loft upstairs. You definitely need to keep your eye on any children, as this home is literally at the edge of a cliff which is separated by the deck. The views were unprecedented not only in the day but at night, when you could see the Milky Way, stars, and satellites with the clarity of the dark night sky. The home is located right next to another home, which I wasn't expecting, but the group kept to themselves. But worth mentioning if you're looking for complete solitude, as we were. Also - it would have been great if there was more than one roll of TP for each bathroom and laundry detergent for the towels which we were asked to wash! I remember, in retrospect, the mgmt. company asking us to bring some paper items but forgot, as I'm sure others have too. Other than that - this is a beautiful location with enough space to move around and enjoy the spectacular views of Durango.
This cabin is a great place to get away and relax but still stay close to incredible skiing! It's situated in a beautiful canyon and has incredible views from the living room and patio.
Primrose Cabin is an amazing place. The pictures on VRBO do not do it justice. We took our family of 5 (3 kids ages 12, 10 & 6) here in July for a fantastic vacation. Each day we'd come back to the cabin exhausted from white water rafting, horse riding, mountain biking, hiking, 4x4 jeep in the high mountains...and it was so relaxing to sit out on the deck and chill. We had a blast playing UNO as a family in the cabin. It's perfectly located between Durango and Durango Mountain Resort that you can nip to either in 10-20 mins. Our kids were very excited about the bedrooms (each had their own TV at night with satellite), as well as the wi-fi internet access of course.
We'd come back here in a heartbeat.
Thanks for sharing your home with us!!!
My wife I had a fantastic stay at this cabin. It's in a beautiful, peaceful setting, close enough to town but far enough away to feel secluded. The cabin is well appointed and has everything you need for a short weekend or a longer stay. Could easily accomodate more than just the wife and I, with lots of rooms and lots of views.
I would highly recommend staying here. The owner was very prompt, curteous and helpful.
Overall a great experience. We will be back!
