My wife and I loved the location of this piece of property and the abundant water rights that comes with it. However when we first purchased the home, it and the land needed allot of work. We spent 6 years renovating it to the relaxing house it is today. We are very proud of the changes we have made, especially the landscaping and timber frame accents throughout the house. We are both retired and enjoy woodworking, renovating homes and the outdoors – especially gardening and flyfishing.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

We love Southwest Colorado but particularly this property, because of the proximity to the river and the location here in the South Animas River Valley. We want others to experience the peace and contentment that comes with this house and hope to share it with others that will appreciate it.

Although southwest Colorado s known for its dry climate and vegetation, this house is unique in that it has lush vegetation, giving it a cool and peaceful atmosphere in the summer. Being located in the South Animas River Valley gives us “banana belt” weather during the winter, meaning we have slightly warmer temperatures than the homes on the mesas, prairies and in the forested areas.

Beautiful House in a quiet setting.

One of the nicest rentals we've ever had. Furnished very comfortably with ample room for 6. The kitchen was great for cooks--plenty of provisions left to use, and a nice space in which to cook. The house also had a great sound system for playing music in the living room. We walked through the pasture down to the Animas river, dined on the lovely outdoor patio, and enjoyed a wonderful New Year's hanging by the fire. Owners were easily reached for any questions or concerns we had. A great destination for those who want quiet when you step out the door. We will definitely be back.

My family stayed at this property this past Christmas and had a fantastic and memorable stay. The home was very clean, spacious, warm and inviting, and met all of our needs and desires. A very nice surround sound stereo (with bose speakers, including patio) gave us a great movie experience. My family looks forward to staying at this home again. I highly recommend this property.

Zen-like and fabulous!

I've stayed at quiet a few homes, and this property rates among the top ten in terms of relaxing, comfortable & dog friendly. The house has a great indoor/outdoor feel that we all loved. I don't think the pictures truly capture all of the interesitng details, including the tiling in the bathrooms, the hardwood floors, the mountain views, the short wak across the pasture to the water, and the wonderful horses next door! We came away inspired to add some of the beautiful touches to our own home! When our travels take us back to Durango, this is the only place we'd stay!

Lovely setting

The owners are helpful and the house lovely, with an open kitchen/dining/living area that has both room to relax and for the kids to romp. And such a pretty setting, with a short hike down to the river. The kids especially enjoyed exploring the tiny stream alongside the house and visiting the horses next door. Thank you!

HI Chris,
Everything is great and the setting is beautiful.

Well, none of us wants to leave tomorrow. I think I could sit forever and look at your magnificent view.

I'm sure we'll be back again.
