Overview

Durango Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Picture a cozy log cabin situated in the scenic San Juan Mountains and whether its summer or winter you have the perfect Colorado vacation site! It is a serene place where you are able to enjoy the amenities of Durango Mtn Resort (Formerly Purgatory) and the historic town of Durango without the crowds and noise.

This is a real log cabin nestled in a beautiful heavily wooded area near two high mountain lakes but close to Durango (20 minute drive in the summer) and 12 minutes south of Durango Mountain Resort. The cabin has three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with a twin bed and a set of bunk beds) with cozy down comforters and comfortable mattresses) plus two baths. The downstairs queen bedroom has a flat screen T.V. and views of the woods. (Watch for deer or elk!)

There is also a T.V. in the living room as well as an IPod/

IPhone dock for playing your own music. A portable DVD player is available for your favorite movies.

In summer we provide a canoe that you can take to nearby Electra or Haviland Lakes. (We have a carrier that will fit most vehicles.)

Sit in front of the fire or soak on the deck in the hot tub under the stars. In the summer lounge in the hammock.

Enjoy the mountain serenity while dining outside on the patio. A gas BBQ is available in summer to cook up all the fish you catch!!

A full kitchen and washer & dryer offer all the comforts of home.

A short 7-12 minute drive takes you to the Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory), home to some of the best Nordic and Alpine skiing in the Rockies. After a exhilerating day skiing or boarding, enjoy a soak under the stars in the hot tub. Sip hot chocolate in front of the wood fire, or hike down to the lake for a little ice skating on a 'classic Colorado' lake surrounded by mountains. How about a romantic sleigh ride and then cozy dinner, snowmobiling, snowshoeing or simply reading in front of the fire or soaking in the hot tub?? This winter wonderland is perfect for relaxing or enjoying winter sports.

Speaking of summer, the area comes alive with scenic chair lift rides, alpine slides, music festivals, and world class mountain biking. Look out your front windows for a wooded aspen and pine view with a backdrop of mountains. This charming cabin is surrounded by hundreds of miles of scenic hiking and biking trails where wild flowers, waterfalls, and wildlife abound.

Perhaps you would enjoy white water rafting, world class fly fishing or golfing. Or take a ride on the famous Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad to an Old Mining Town. Visit Gold Mines... Ghost Towns... 'Go Jeeping' on Incredible Mountain Passes! Or just read a good book in the hammock!!

Serenity and beauty surround you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Colorado is such a great relief from south Texas. We love the mountains and the Durango/Silverton area. Staying at your cabin made our vacation so much nicer. The location is convenient for going to many lakes, parks and tourist attractions. Thanks again from all of us.

A perfect place for a family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving here, to be close to our son. The cabin was perfect: well furnished & clean, with a well appointed kitchen that made Thanksgiving dinner (and other meals) a snap; a wood stove with a healthy supply of firewood; and a hot tub that was ready when we arrived. We had the privacy we wanted with easy access to many of the places that activities that Durango has to offer.

Electra Lake with spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains and Chicago Basin was a short and pleasant walk from the cabin. Its close to the ski resort but not too far from Durango; and a reasonable drive to Silverton.

And if this wasn't enough, the owners were very friendly, accommodating and flexible with arrival and departure times.

On previous trips, we have stayed in Durango, but this was definitely a huge improvement; and we look forward to returning.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My girl friends and I (5 total) so enjoyed our stay at this clean well maintained cabin. Six wonderful nights at this lovely home away from home. We felt it was the perfect distance from Durango. We visited Mesa Verde, did the Durango Silverton railroad, hot mineral spa at Pagosa Springs and our favorite... a full day of horseback riding at the Rapp Corral. Came home that day to a wonderful pot roast we had prepared in the crock pot!

Comfortable, Peaceful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was a comfortable place to spend the 3 nights and a peaceful place to sit on the porch and read or enjoy the scenic area and cliffs nearby. We rode the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Train and the cabin was a nice place to stay near Durango.

We did not use the hot tub because it was not private. To get to it you had to go out the front door, facing the other cabin nearby, and go around to the back side. No terry robes were provided to wear to and from the tub.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. We were a little surprised that you felt the hot tub was not private enough. The cabin is on an acre of wooded land and the covered deck from the front door leads to the back patio where the hot tub is. This patio faces to 15 acres of woods. There is a garage that you can see from the hot tub on the next acre over but since there are no windows, it should not have interfered with your privacy. But thank you for your feedback!

A perfect place to relax with friends or family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a similar cabin last fall, so when the opportunity came up to meet friends in Durango, we returned to the vrbo sight. We enjoyed a relaxing weekend with friends in this clean, comfortable cabin. The kitchen was big enough for us to work together preparing easy meals to fellowship around. No need to travel out unless you wanted to. The owners are very accessible and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

A wonderful summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful week at this cabin. It was perfect - cozy, private, and just the right size. It is perfectly located, halfway between Silverton and Durango. That makes it easy to venture out on the 4-wheel drive trails near Silverton and up to Ouray. Yankee Boy Basin is worth the trip! And head southwest to Mesa Verde. There was an issue with our hot water heater, but it was addressed immediately! Owners are very responsive to any requests you might have.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful weekend of relaxation and rest. It was just what I needed. It was well maintained. Very Clean. The owners had a list of every possible thing that you could think of. Instructions on how to work the amenities. A list of local activities, places to see and to go. I WOULD recommend this property to a friend or relative. I also hope to return.
