MOUNTAIN HOME – BEAUTIFUL MEADOW, GREAT VIEWS, CLOSE TO RESORT

Cascade House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Sitting in a meadow at 8800 feet surrounded by 12,000 foot mountains, this beautiful custom-built home will be the most relaxing vacation you have ever had. Surrounded by mountains covered in aspen and pine trees and located one mile from Durango Mountain Resort, whatever the season, this is the perfect getaway.

Built in 2008, this 3000 sf house is your home away from home to enjoy with friends and family. With beautiful views from every window, a large kitchen, outside deck, and spectacular fire place in the great room, you won’t want to leave. Except that all of the wonders of southern Colorado will be drawing you outdoors.

The house is located in the San Juan mountains 25 miles north of downtown Durango and 20 miles south of Silverton Historic District. Skiing, hiking, birding, and biking are all just minutes away. Whatever the season, you will find outdoor entertainment. Winter and summer activities abound with skiing for the whole family and hiking and biking from easy strolls to some of the best trails in the United States. But don’t forget to come for the Fall colors, when the Aspen trees turn the most gorgeous shades of yellow and orange.

The house is located on a paved, community-maintained road. It is a short walk to the indoor community pool and hot tubs. The driveway has 220v hookups to park and charge a small motor home. Inside, you will find a large kitchen perfect for cooking and enjoying the company of family and friends at the end of a long day. Three bedrooms have queen beds and the forth bedroom has a double bed, twin bunk, and twin trundle. There is also a porta crib and twin air mattress available to use.

When you visit the San Juans, you will want to come back again and again. Are you looking for the perfect base for a ski-trip, biking vacation, wedding, family vacation, reunion, honeymoon, or anniversary? Look no further.

I live in San Diego, CA with my wife and two children (ages 6 and 2). We have a small business that makes software for kids; painting, animation, you know…fun stuff. San Diego gives us the beach, but we also love the mountains. All year round there is something for us to do. We plan to use this home as a family retreat for many, many years to come. For us, the house is just 5 hours door-to- door with an easy flight through Phoenix.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

This is our second home in the San Juans. In 2004 we were visiting Durango and drove up to Silverton. The drive is amazing and just before the passes sits beautiful Cascade Village. We drove by on a Friday. By Sunday we were in escrow on a condo. We just could not resist. I wanted a base to go mountain biking. My wife wanted a place to go skiing. We both got exactly what we were looking for. Three years later we bought a lot in the meadow and built a home for our growing family.

In the winter, DMR is the perfect resort for our family. There are plenty of trees for me, great open runs for my wife, the half-pipe for our son, and great people at the day care for our daughter until she is read to get on skis. And best of all, Durango’s idea of a busy day means you can’t just ski right on to the lift.

In the summer, we can hike the kids to Potato Lake, ride the Alpine slide at DMR, go biking, or just wander through the wildflowers in the meadow.

If you can make it out in the Fall, the colors are breathtaking. When the aspens change color, it is beautiful. So beautiful in fact, we named our daughter after it. Our Aspen loves going to her Colorado house.

Short lift lines in the most beautiful place on earth. That is just one of the benefits of a trip to the San Juans. The area is huge and there are not a lot of people. It is just peaceful.

We built this house for ourselves. So when you are staying here, you don’t feel like you are in a rental. You are in a home. It is welcoming, warm, and comfortable. While you are there you will call it your own.

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
We found the VBO home very adequate, well equipped and with lots of room for our family (six adults and 4 children). The views were magnificent even with some rainy weather. The descriptions of the property including photos were generally accurate. A couple of homes were nearer than we had anticipated but we still felt quite alone and isolated.
We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives. We had lots of fun hiking, fishing, riding bikes and taking advantage of some of the activities at the Durango Mountain Resort. Also enjoyed a day in Durango and a trip on the narrow gauge railway.

BEST VACATION RENTAL HOME EVER!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our 3 children have vacationed every summer for the last 10 years or so with my brother, sister-in-law and their 3 children. VRBO is always our first choice for vacation rental homes. We have rented homes in Hawaii, several times, Montana, Florida, Georgia, and even Europe. This year we chose Durango, close proximity for all of us because we have kids busy kids in high school and college. Of all the homes we have rented, this homeowner was the most conscientious and helpful. He provided lots of pre-arrival information to plan our week, and was unbelievably helpful with questions. The house was the most beautiful home in the area as well! Durango is beautiful and the home was in the best area for all the activities we were interested in. Again, the house was spectacular! The covered patio was large, utilizing the amazing views and perfect for relaxing and eating meals. The kitchen was fabulous. Perfect for all the cooks in the kitchen! Everything we needed was available. Bedrooms, bathrooms and all living space was perfect for 2 families! The house was the cleanest and best maintained home we have ever rented! Our week went by way too fast. I wholeheartedly recommend this home to everyone! Durango is a beautiful place with way too much to see and do in just one week. You will never find a more beautiful home with homeowners as professional and helpful.

WONDERFUL WEEK IN THE MOUNTAINS!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful trip for our family. The house is beautiful and well-appointed, a very open floor plan. The deck and kitchen were our favorite places. TV was available upstairs, but we never used it. We spent time playing cards, dominoes and games. It was truly a "get away from it all" week! The boys went fly fishing and ATV riding while the girls explored Durango and enjoyed the time at the house. All together, a wondeful trip and a fantastic house. The owner was most helpful in answering our questions and making recommendations for trips, etc.

CANNOT IMAGINE A MORE GORGEOUS AND PERFECT SKI GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My family has spent 2 winter vacations at this home for a week in each of February 2011 and 2012. The house is absolutely beautiful, new, huge, well designed, comfortable, with expansive mountain views and utterly convenient to Durango Mountain Resort, which is one of the best mountains with the best conditions we have ever skied (we ski primarily in California and Colorado). Fits up to 3 families with 2 children each very comfortably. Wonderful sledding and pool/hot tub in the community for those downtimes when you can't get the kids on skiis. Durango Mountain is 10 minutes away and we have never experienced the types of crowds that one encounters at much lesser quality ski resorts. The house is easy to reach even in a snowstorm due to well maintained roads. Downtown Durango is also fun to explore and eat out. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough - you will not be disappointed in any aspect of your stay.

UNFORGETTABLE NEW YEAR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent the New Year week at the home with another family. The house is just gorgeous! It is only a couple of years old and every detail in the house is so well thought through. We enjoyed cooking dinners after a day of skiing in the spacious and very functional kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of space for everyone to hang around a large island. In the morning we enjoyed having breakfast admiring serene views of the mountains.
The kids were crazy about the bank-bed in the kid’s room and were spending most of the time there in the evenings while the adults were having conversations by the fire place.
The ski resort was just a few minutes away, so that one could even come back home for lunch, if needed. The resort was great with lots of runs for all levels. Our kids learnt to ski there and didn't want to leave the slopes.
Overall, we had an unforgettable vacation in this beautiful mountain home!
