Only two blocks from the The Horse Gulch Trail System which offers world class mountain biking and hiking trails... a great place to hike dogs. Durango Natural Foods Grocery is right across the street as well as several other breakfast, lunch and coffee shops. The short walk to downtown is along 6th street which is full of eclectic shops and restaurants. Close enough to walk to the train station, or up to the college.

About Holly Jason

We have lived in Durango for over 18 years and can help you plan a wonderful vacation for your family. Concierge services included!

Holly Jason purchased this house in 2004

Why Holly Jason chose Durango

The location is very much downtown with three breakfast places within a block, and the local food co-op grocery store right across the street. If you don't want to drive and you want a house instead of a condo, this is your place.

What makes this house unique

Unique decor, and a real house with character. This is a super comfortable house with all the trappings. We have paid much attention to the details: super nice beds and linens, hand made soap, La Creuset pans, Weber Grill, original Art. We have really had fun making this place special.

Happy Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary at the St. Francis house with our two small dogs! What a treat. I wanted a place for the weekend with a location whereby we could walk everywhere. St. Francis house was perfect. We walked all over town. Downtown, the river path, grocery shopping, pretty much all over. The gas stove in the living room was wonderful. Bed was so comfortable. Everything you need in the kitchen. The Tavern was not an issue at all (and it was busy). The street traffic didn't bother us either. We had a great time and loved the location. Thanks Holly. We'll be back soon!

Loved the St. Francis House!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the St. Francis House over Thanksgiving week and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. We are a family of four with two small children and the house was spacious and kid-friendly. It was great to have a full kitchen at our disposal and we enjoyed making our own Thanksgiving feast. The beds were especially comfortable! There is off-street parking and the location is within walking distance to a great playground a block away that our kids enjoyed daily. It is an easy distance walking or driving to the downtown area and grocery shopping. Holly was very accommodating, she gave us a great price and made sure we had everything we needed. So glad we chose this rental over a hotel, we got much better value for the price, and it really felt homey. Looking forward to staying again in the future. Thanks Holly!

HOME SWEET HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the ST. F House..as always everything we needed and more. Even our dog recognized it from a year ago! Everything went smoothly...all the amenities we needed, and Holly worked it out so we got the days we needed without hassle and for a very fair price..

So much better than a hotel room!

Thanks Holly. Hopefully we will have a home to stay in by next spring!

Owner's Response: Thank you guys so much for this note on Saint Francis. I think it is such a compliment that your dog liked and remembered the place! So funny. Come back anytime, and I am so glad you are moving here permanently. Yeah!

Great location, super helpful landlord

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, and centrally located. The street is busy so getting in and out of the driveway can be a wait at rush hour. Right around the corner from super coffee shop Durango Joes, the health food market is across the street as is the liquor store.

Do laundry at the house, great Internet and TV, very comfortable beds. Located right near the college for a load of activities. Right near the hiking trailhead for many miles of hiking
