Beautiful location on the very edge of the grid.
As advertised, very quiet location, great fireplace, great for star gazing but would have been better without the full moon...timing is everything.
The peace and quiet are just what we were looking for to re-dedicate to our marriage for another 30 years.
This would be a good location for a family getaway.
Stunning retreat in the mountains
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this property. It is the complete antithesis to life in the city. So quite and peaceful. We already want to return! Thank you for hosting us.
Great place with awesome solitude! House is spacious and comfortable. The downsides: not enough hot water for a family of 6, no dishwasher, refrigerator is too small for a family of 6 who stay for a week, and the lighting is really bad. It was very hard cooking in a kitchen that was too dark. Overall, we really enjoyed this place.
Thanks for the comments Rebecca. We've never had anyone mention the hot water before - I'll double check and make sure it didn't somehow get turned down. As for the lighting, we have a couple of extra floor lamps that most guests will move around of they need extra light. We are off the grid and the house runs off of solar-powered batteries, so we intentionally don't have large appliances like a dishwasher, microwave, TV, laundry machines, etc. And, the refrigerator is a small to medium size that runs off of propane. We usually suggest that larger groups bring a cooler to help with the extras early in the stay.
This is a beautiful property in a fantastic location. The house is roomy and there is a lot to do, from padding around the pond to playing horseshoes to sitting around a camp fire. We t is highly recommended that a 4WD be used to get to the property. We made it in our AWD Crossover but it was tough sledding.
Great unplugged getaway!
My family had a great week in this wonderful cabin without phone, internet and tv. What fun with horseshoe, all terrain croquet, ping pong and card game competitions galore! Completely equipped for our needs and with a responsive owner Greg, this cabin had just the right amount of remoteness((20-25 minutes off the pavement) with great accessibility for hiking and atv-ing in the national forest. Sure hope we can make it back next year.
Secluded mountain home
This place was amazing! Quiet top of mountain secluded awesomeness!
Located 35 miles NE of Durango, Vallecito Lake is a quiet, scenic spot sheltered in a mountain valley 8,000 feet above the sea. The lake is surrounded by the San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness, over 2.5 million acres of public land.
