Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a great stay in this house in Durango. We saw many different birds here! All noted in our western bird book. The trip to Silverton by train was beautiful. What a countryside! We would have liked to stay longer. No suprise that so many people wanted the same! It's the best of both sides: Durango- very lively and the house so close but in beautiful nature. We're glad we could make your son happy with the Ajax-football shirt. Amazing that he is a fan of Dutch (Amsterdam) football team! Jan and Jneke- Holland (near Rotterdam)

Perfect location, great views, amazing attention to detail/ pet friendly/

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse is an amazing gem, a few miles from town in Durango, yet super quiet and peaceful in the animas valley. The owner of the farmhouse has an amazing attention to detail and thinks of everything that makes a guest stay super easy and fun. There is wifi, dish network tv, and great amenities for a historic property, great driveway, and visited by a family of deer....

if you are planning on going to mesa verde, durango, skiing, hiking, etc, look no further, a million times better than a hotel and 3 bedrooms... Great communication from owner!!!

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and had a very enjoyable experience. This adorable house was very clean, private and comfortable. It was perfect to spend time with our family, the kitchen is big with a large table and we played cards and games a lot! We'd definitely come stay again sometime!

Nice setting, not too far from town

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful experience. Lana was great with communication and everything went smoothly on arrival and with departure. Well-stocked kitchen for making meals, nice woodsy area and quaint setting. For some reason, I thought it would be a bit further away from the road (it is about 200 yds maybe?). There wasn't a ton of traffic, but I was hoping it would be a bit more secluded. That said, it was nice at times to just be a few miles from town and still feel "in the country". Thanks, Lana!

Beautiful home for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Farmhouse for our weekend getaway to Durango to see our son, and do some hiking with our puppy! Great location - just outside of town, but close enough to get to downtown, trails, Lemon Reservoir and restaurants! Really enjoyed sitting on the outside patio table with coffee as the sun came up over the mountains.
