Great Summer Escape
A great home base to explore Durango and the surrounding mountains. Very relaxing deck for meals and soaking aching muscles after a long hike in the hot tub.
Comfortable and homey
We had an amazing stay at this home. It is obviously well cared for and all details have been taken care of. I agree with another reviewer that the drive into the neighborhood is a bit incongruous with the house, we didn’t know what to expect but the house was a wonderful surprise. The setting is beautiful, quiet and the night sky so dark yet bright. The home has 4 comfortable bedrooms, plenty of places to sit with a powerful central wood burning fire. The location of the house with regards to distance to Durango was perfect for us, close enough and far enough. Mark is a very responsive and kind host. Would love to come back for another visit next year!
House was better than pictures on-line, great locations and plenty of room. Family loved house.
The Cozy Cabin
The house was very clean and cozy. When we arrived there was a fire going and the house was warm and ready for us to relax after a long drive. There was plenty of space for my family of 5. The Christmas lights weren’t working at first but Mark was contacted and he was there within 10 minutes to fix them (the breaker had tripped). He is a very hands on landlord and we greatly appreciated it. We loved the property and will rent there again in the future. After all, the view of the mountains is gorgeous too!!
We had the perfect Colorado family vacation. We did the rodeo, Mesa Verde, hatchery, fishing, narrow guard railroad, and even an afternoon and evening “camping “ in the national forest. The house was a perfect base. Mark was very responsive and even let us drop some luggage early so we could get to the airport to pick up those flying in.

Why Mark Pastore chose Durango
I love the location of my house. it is only 4 miles from Main Street yet access to National Forest is only minutes away. The views are awesome and the valley is peaceful and quite.
