VALLECITO LAKE - HEAVEN'S VIEW

Vallecito Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Single-Family 3 bedroom/3 bath with Lake Views, Sleeps 8

Perched hundreds of feet above Lake Vallecito, this professionally managed, 2-story floor plan with two living areas opens up to the stunning views of the massive lake and mountain peaks. Looking through grand windows, three sliding glass doors or sitting outside on one of the two decks provide aerial landscapes that will take your breath away!

Wildlife abounds at your doorstep, with the chipmunks and deer at play. Hummingbirds flutter at the deck, while eagles soar above the boaters on the lake. Vallecito Lake, sheltered in a mountain valley 8,000 feet above the sea, is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Colorado. The San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness, over 2.5 million acres of public land, surround Vallecito Lake and touch the north boundary of this spectacular mountain retreat. Families can hike or horseback directly to the wilderness area and the Continental Divide.

Three rock fireplaces provide warmth to the master bedroom and two living areas. Vaulted ceilings showcase the T&G wood ceiling and floor to ceiling windows. The house was recently furnished, freshly decorated and has all new bedding. The spacious kitchen and open floorplan is perfect for entertaining. The small kitchenette downstairs provides additional comforts for large families or two family stays. The two car garage and walk off 2nd story porch provides added comfort.

Summer or winter, this location is for those who want to experience the adrenaline of mountain lake experiences and skiing or just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of the wilderness and the star-filled skies at night.

Fall brings beautiful colors and fishing opportunities in the two rivers that continually feed the lake. The house is situated above Doc’s Marina and timing the lake’s salmon run is a lasting event in itself. With over 50 miles of streams and numerous ‘hike in’ mountain lakes, the opportunities to catch rainbows, brookies, browns, and cutthroats are like the views, endless. Larger Pike, Rainbow and Brown Trout troll the lake. The adjacent wilderness area is Colorado's largest, and adventurers can hunt and hike on 500 miles of trails. The changing of the season provides a unique panoramic view of trees in color. This 1 acre property will provide a base camp to exceed expectations.

Winter snowmobiling and cross country skiing at the lake can be enhanced by short drives to Durango Mountain Resort/Purgatory and Wolf Creek. These renowned ski areas have had some of the best snow conditions in the country the last few years.

WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house and we had such an awesome experience. It was big and spacious. The view's were unbelievable. We went down to the lake one day to rent a boat and fish, and went into durango another day to white water raft and tour the town. It only took about 35 minutes to get to durango, and about another 30-45 minutes to get to mesa verde. We absolutely loved this place and will definitely choose to stay at this house if we could back this way. I would (and have) highly recommend this house to anyone looking for the perfect vacation.

BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank-you for allowing us to stay at this beautiful cabin! The cabin is named appropriately, Heaven's View. The first night I walked out onto the balcony, I was in awe of how beautiful and bright the twinkling stars were. It was dizzying. I felt like I could reach and touch the heavens! The inside of the cabin is very spacious and decorated so cute! Every morning and evening, deer would greet us. They were just as curious about us, as we were them. There is so much to do. We hiked, of course! Paddled a canoe we rented from the Doc's Mariana. I highly recommend renting a jeep in Silverton and going to to the Animas Ghost town and Cinnamon Pass. It was so beautiful, but not for the faint of heart! We road the Durango-Silverton train and hiked some trails around Silverton. One of the best things to do at this home, is to just sit outside and enjoy the view. I definitely would come back and recommend the home to any of my friends or family!

FAMILY OF 5 IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Heaven's View! The home was super updated, clean, and well-stocked. The mountain is incredibly quiet. No close neighbors so you have a private slice of heaven. Our three boys loved exploring the property around the house and watching all of the wildlife. Mule deer travel up and down the mountain right outside the porch every morning and evening! The resident chipmunks frolicked on the porch giving us plenty of extra entertainment. Fishing on the lake was incredible. We loved the nearby hiking in the national forest, kayaking on lake and the quick trip into Durango for shopping and dining. Highly recommend the home. Very cozy and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the descriptive review! Yes, we also enjoy watching the wildlife stroll by when we visit, as well as watching the stars at night, and often catch a shooting star - an amazing experience to enjoy the beauty nature has to offer. So glad you and your family enjoyed staying at Heaven's View, we look forward to your family returning one day!

EXCEPTONALLY COMFORTABLE, WELCOMING AND HOMEY

  • 5 of 5
We were on a busy schedule for our weekend and found coming back to the house to truly be a retreat. We sat on the deck late into the night and breathed in real air. The ladies commented on the wonderful efficiency of the kitchen. As long as this house accommodates our number of guest, we will use it again.

AWESOME HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this house the last week in June 2013 and we had such a great time. The house is wonderful and the views are spectacular. The area offers so much to do. We enjoyed boating on the lake and outdoor activities in Durango. We all enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the peace and quiet of the area. The house is spacious, clean and well-stocked. We are hoping to return to this house again and we will recommend it to all our friends. It was a great setup for teens with the lower living space. The owners were awesome in their correspondence. You will not be disappointed. Wish we could have stayed longer.
