SECLUDED AND PEACEFUL RIVER VIEW RETREAT

Vallecito Lake Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

A River Runs By It! This lovely property is located directly on the upper river bank, offering gorgeous views and the gentle sounds of the Pine River. A pretty hiking trail climbs gently to an outlook for views of Vallecito Lake and the mountains. Boating, bike riding, hiking and barbequing from the deck are just a few of the wonderful activities that can be enjoyed from your private paradise in the pines. If you enjoy fishing, some of the best fly fishing in southern Colorado is just a 5-10 walk from your front door to your own private fishing spot on the Pine river. You are only minutes away from Vallecito Lake and the town of Durango has some of the best river rafting and mountain biking in Colorado. Durango is only a thirty minute drive along a beautiful, winding country road, where you are bound to see elk and deer on the rolling hillsides.

This newly built guest quarters was designed for your comfort, convenience, and for the best views! The upper deck is directly off the main floor for relaxing and grilling. With all this available from your quarters; views, flowing water, hiking and hills, you may never need to get in your car! But if you do, in addition to all that Vallecito Lake and Durango offers, your retreat borders the Weminuche Wilderness, the largest in the state of Colorado. Here, you can enjoy beautiful hikes in the forest.

If you want more… Pagosa Springs is a magnificent and scenic sixty mile drive where you can soak in sulfur hot springs.

I have lived in two of the nicest places in the world! born in Hawaii moving to Durango when I was 15. I have travelled the world but Durango is still at the top of my list. I am an outdoor enthusiast (always a mountain bike on the back of my car).

Chris Zoll purchased this apartment in 2004

I chose this property on the river bank, and built my home and the guest quarters for best views, and it turned out to be better than I could have imagined!

This unique 3 acre property is at the end of a private road. It's such a wonderful spot that sometimes the best way to spend the day is on the deck, in the hammock with a good book, listening to the sounds of the river.

Plus, the owner offers guided mountain biking trips for those interested in exploring some of the best trails in Colorado!

Amazing is an understatement.....

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a convenience store, or store of any kind next to you, with street lights glaring in your face at night, and parties with noise to keep you up till dawn.... or to watch tv all day.....This place is NOT FOR YOU !
It is the most peaceful, relaxing place to be, and the best value for your money you can find...
Chris is a GREAT host that lives next door but hardly see, or know he's there ( except if you need him to be) and makes you feel right at home.
We brought everything we could think of from home for our 5 day stay ( including aluminum foil), but Chris already had it covered! Could not believe how well he's supplied this place...
The place is IMMACULATE clean and decorated.... and the bed is SOooo Comfortable... and the sound of the rapids at night from the Los Pinos is most tranquil...
Would I stay here again??? What a dumb question! It was hard enough to leave the first time! ......... (Thanks Chris for everything)

(For Renters)...While you are there, Be sure to say Hi to Kate and Lucky for us! :)
p.s. Pictures can't do this place justice....

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a vacation property that:
1) Was away from the crowds
2) Was situated in a peaceful setting
3) Provided modern conveniences
4) Was near other recreation areas

The propery is covered with pine trees, located on the bank of the Pine River, and less that a mile from Vallecito Lake. It's a very quiet place where you can sit on the deck with a glass of wine and listen to the river below. It succeeded in providing the solitude we were after.

The owner is a construction contractor and built the property himself. In looking at his work, the word that comes to mind is "craftsmanship". He's done an extrordinary job, and designed the property with convenience in mind.

Vallecito Lake, it's associated rivers and streams, National Forest picnic areas and the Weminuche Wilderness access provide more than enough in nearby recreation.

If you want to "get away" for some peaceful relaxation in an ideal mountain setting, this is an excellent choice. I WILL go back.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. A real getaway from the frantic pace of life. The place is spotless, roomy and peaceful. The owner was most helpful in suggesting local rock climbing spots, hikes and restaurants. The kids played croquet and we were able to relax and enjoy beautiful Colorado weather. The July 4th fireworks at the lake were amazing.

2013 Motorcycle Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was the best VRBO property we have ever stayed in!! The property was exceptionally clean and comfortable; it was like being at home away from home. The property was adjacent to the Pine River, and the tranquil sound of the water constantly flowing was very enjoyable.

The owner is very personable and lives on site. My husband and I were traveling via motorcycle, and Chris was extremely helpful in offering suggestions on beautiful scenic routes to explore.

The property was conveniently located to all amenities.

We highly recommend this property and look forward to a return stay as soon as we can make it happen.

We had a wonderful weekend at this cabin! It was exactly what we were looking for. Chris was very helpful and provided some great hiking tips. The cabin was beautiful, as was the area. We didn't want to leave! I highly recommend this location, and we would go back in a heartbeat!
