Named for the Patron Saint of animals and the environment, we welcome you to the Saint Francis House in the heart of Downtown Durango. This historic house is decorated in a fresh authentic style celebrating the natural world. Truly green, the house is powered by a 2KW Solar electric system. Amazing location with restaurants, grocery, trails, downtown all within easy walking distance. Pamper yourself in the beauty and quality of this house.

A sublime place to stay with a full gourmet kitchen and two bedrooms this house is uber-comfortable. The bedrooms have four poster beds with new high-end mattresses, fine linens and down comforters. Gorgeous new marble, glass and tile bathroom with a ceiling heater for deliciously warm showers. Lots of quality towels, and a hair dryer provided. Pet and kid friendly with a front porch surrounded by a securely fenced yard. Front loading Washer/Dryer with supplies provided including an iron. The kitchen is complete with quality pans, real knives, blender, antique dishes and real silver ware, lots of handy kitchen tools... worthy of Thanksgiving Dinner or relaxed BBQ meals for the family.

There is a large flat screen TV, BlueRay DVD player, and Wi-Fi provided. Also a small library of books and DVD's. Space enough in either room for a small office set up.

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. With a location like this, the car is optional, but if you have one there is an off street parking spot just steps away from the front door.

All the Best,

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

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.

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.

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!

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

FAMILY VACATION IN DURANGO

  • 4 of 5
We found the St. Francis House very comfortable and affordable. The beds are excellent. The house is very clean and well-maintained. The bathroom is large and the remodeling is appealing with plenty of towels, etc. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the evening even though the street is busy. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the St. Francis House with family dinners in the large kitchen, playing cards around the table, watching a late movie and just hanging out.

GREAT STAY IN DURANGO

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing weekend at The Saint Francis House. It was in a perfect location close to downtown and restaurants. Everything was immaculate and well kept, including the beds which were very comfortable. The house has a nice front yard to enjoy coffee or tea in the morning. Holly was very helpful and accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed. I would absolutely stay at The Saint Francis House again!
