Garden Home City of Durango Permit #14-098

Our Garden Home Guesthouse is a beautiful 1600 square foot, two bedroom two and a half bath house on West 3rd Avenue. Take a short walk to dinner downtown, or enjoy the extensive River Trail that runs along the banks of the Animas just a few blocks from the house. Or just sit on the classic front porch overlooking this quiet old-town Avenue neighborhood lined with huge trees. Feel good about taking a green vacation… this house has a 4.5 KW PV solar system providing 100% of the electricity!!

Garden Home is decorated in a serene garden style with high quality furnishings and original artwork. There is a full kitchen gas range and oven, kitchen aid dishwasher, plenty of dishes and pots and pans to cook a holiday meal for your family. All the little things like coffee, oil, and spices are there to make you feel at home. Also a full sized washer and dryer for your use with supplies provided. Two beautiful bedrooms upstairs have high-end queen sized mattresses for a comfortable nights sleep. There are down comforters and lots of extra towels and linens.

Totally kid and pet friendly with our “Romper Room” full of toys that opens up to a fenced back yard. Your kids and dogs will have a blast exploring the nature trail up the back hill, safely fenced in. We have kids and dogs ourselves so have outfitted the house with plug covers and baby gates.

It is a 30-minute drive to Purgatory (DMR) where you can ski some of Colorado’s best. Or just stay in and make popcorn and take advantage of our comfy leather furniture, DVD Collection, LCD TV with Dish and small library of great books, and of course Wireless High Speed Internet. The downstairs has vaulted ceilings and slate tile floors with in floor heat for your winter comfort. The dining room has a glass door that opens up to a private courtyard covered with a trellis, a great place to have a romantic dinner al fresco.

We are local and have lived in Durango for a long time, so can help you plan your perfect downtown Durango vacation.

About Holly Jason

We have lived in Durango for about 20 years. My parents own the Garden Home and we manage it for them.

~Holly & Ben

Holly Jason purchased this house in 2010

Why Holly Jason chose Durango

Location to downtown Durango, the River Trail, the library, and the Recreation Center. This is the best neighborhood in Durango!

What makes this house unique

Quiet old-town neighborhood that is super safe and close to the river trail and downtown. This is a gorgeous house, very family and pet friendly, and the back yard is super private, and now totally fenced for dogs and kids. Also I love how there is an outdoor arbored patio right off the kitchen for indoor/outdoor meals and entertaining. Great Weber BBQ. The beds are new and amazingly comfortable with super nice sheets and great down blankets. Beautiful house, lots of light, great place for a family to enjoy Durango.

Comfortable Home with Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Garden Home for one week during springbreak (March 2015). My brother and sister live in Durango and I am very familiar with the area. This home was in a great location for access to downtown and everything Durango has to offer. Even better, it was very well furnished and stocked. We cooked all but two meals at the home and had all the essential appliances and dishes we needed to feel right at home. The bedrooms had comfortable beds, linens and pillows. The towels were so incredible that I looked at the tag and purchased a few of the same ones when I got home! It was great arriving to a rental house that was well-equipped, even down to the papertowels, dish soap, laundry detergent and toilet paper! Plus my two children immediately began using all the toys made available in the playroom/twin bed room, which were plenty! Although we did not use the backyard as much as we planned we certainly will spend more time out back when we rent the home again this summer. Each night a group of deer visited the backyard, which delighted my kids to no end. The heated floors were so comfortable to walk on in the early mornings. This is now the only home we will rent when we visit family in Durango. It was truly perfect!

Delightful for Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 3 night stay at the Garden Home. House is very comfortable. Kitchen was well-stocked with everything necessary to cook for our family of 6, and a number of handy staples. My 2 girls, ages 7 and 10, loved the play room with dress-up clothes and toys as well as the outdoor play spaces. The Powerhouse Science Center was a suprise highlight of our stay - check it out for the kids! Wifi was fast and reliable - necessary for my high-schooler to complete her homework! Close to town, quiet neighborhood. Just a great place to stay.

Garden Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the best home away from home one could have. The house is beautiful with so many amenities to use at one's discretion. We were there for one full week but we both agree we should have made two weeks or longer. Even though the weather was warm for Durango this time of year, we really enjoyed the heated floors in the morning when we got up. We saw mule deer in the yard, if fact in many of the yards. We love this place!

Nice, clean, centrally located home

  • 4 of 5

The home was super clean and well equipped. The owners were more than friendly and accommodating. It was in a nice, central location and walking distance to downtown Durango. We were able to take day trips into Utah etc. Would definitely stay at this home again. :)
