The cabin was absolutely adorable! We didn't have to bring any household items except our luggage as it was completely stocked! We were greeted my a HUGE Christmas tree and a variety of information of the many things to do in the area! Tiffany made doing business so easy and was ready to answer any questions I had. Highly recommend this cabin for everyone to enjoy!♡

Adorable home complete with everything we needed for our stay. It was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

I grew up vacationing at Vallecito and hope to return permanently one day. In the meantime, I love spending several weeks a summer there and this adorable home is perfect. I have returned 3 years in a row and have not had a single issue or bad experience. The owner/property manager, Tiffany, is so easy to work with and she responds to emails immediately. She is honest and thorough- no scam here; everything is EXACTLY as promised. The home is adorable, comfortable, cozy, clean, and equipped with everything you could possibly need! Even though I brought most of the household items (soap, paper towels, dish soap, spices, etc) you could literally arrive at the cabin with only your clothes and have everything you need! Tiffany has thought of everything! We would hike, backpack, kayak, ride horses, or fish but have a beautiful home to come back to at the end of the day complete with satellite tv and wi fi. It truly is the best of both worlds. We enjoyed our coffee in the morning on the gorgeous wrap around deck or read our books sitting on the master bedroom deck with nothing but a view of snow covered peaks to the north. The location of the home is perfect- it is easily accessible and has plenty of parking for guests. It's a short yet beautiful drive into historic Durango- we made several short day trips into town. I can't say enough good things about this home. I love it and plan to return every year until I buy my own. The overall experience was outstanding and I wouldn't change a thing. The neighbors are lovely. The locals are warm and inviting and if you are looking to get away from life for a bit, this is the perfect destination. It's just perfect! The house is so clean and extremely well maintained. The owners have done a great job. I highly recommend this beautiful home for your next Vallecito getaway.

Nice Clean, Easy access,

  • 5 of 5

Overall our stay at the Cabin was great, I found Tiffany easy to work with. Easy access off the main road easy to find, we also had use of the garage. We make a yearly trip to Bayfield area and we most likely will try and book this house again, depending how many of us there will be next year.

It takes a lot for me to write a bad review but I can't let this one go without warning others. We almost had to cancel our entire vacation the morning of our arrival. I Booked this cabin with Tiffany a month prior to our stay. Emailed her a few times regarding the initial payment. She asked for all up front and I did not feel comfortable since there was no official business name or number I could find, unable to pay by card and we had never rented from them before. We rent cabins in the area all the time and no one has ever asked for all the money up front, and I have always able to search for and find a legit business name and verify by calling the phone number. This was not the case with this cabin. We still agreed by email to send half by check through the mail and the rest cash upon arrival. Attempted to email and call multiple times starting a few days before we arrived to get instructions and ask why they hadn't cashed the check, no response. The day we were supposed to drive down I had all the kids and my parents packed and ready however still could not get ahold of Tiffany. She finally called me back after ringing her nonstop and she actually told me she had no idea who I was and we did not have a cabin booked. When I reminded her of our conversations and that I had all the emails saved she miraculosly remembered but told us we never officially booked (If I could, I would attach all the emails) Immediately placed a hold on the check I mailed since she hadn't cashed it. I understand things happen but to be so unproffesional to deny even speaking with me was so off putting, at least admit to the mix up/mistake, apologize and move on. Searched and called everywhere on the Lake for 2 hours that morning, no cabins in the area were available at the last minute but we were able to book with Durango premier! They were amazing, great prices, newer/modern cabins and breathtaking view and location.

As much as we love spending our summers at Vallecito lake for the past 20 years, We will now be spending them in Durango/Purgatory area. Perfect distance from all activities we love and many other beautiful lakes to fish from.

This cabin may be all 5 stars when you actually stay there but unfortunately my family will never know.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that Vanessa had a lack of communication about her inquiry. When she inquired about booking, her husband was not happy with payment arrangements, fearing a scam. VRBO has a good reputation and in 10 years we have never had a complaint. We did not hear back from them. In the meantime we got 4 more inquiries. I then tried to contact Vanessa both by E-mail & phone with no response. We rented to other guests for those dates. I was speechless when she called the morning they were leaving to ask directions to the cabin. She had never confirmed or sent a deposit. I am glad that these young people found a new place to explore and hopefully learned a life-lesson. Tiffany

Fantastic Time!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned to reality from our fantastic time at the Cozy Muir cabin. When we arrived everything was clean and inviting. The rooms are bright and warm and the kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary cooking utensils. We were able to enjoy our morning coffee on the porch and watch the sunrise. The cabin is located very close to the lake and the neighbors are friendly. I would recommend taking your own pillow, note that it is a charcoal grill, not propane, and the stove only has two working electric burners. Other than that, plan for a relaxing and enjoyable time. Should you have questions or concerns, Tiffany is very friendly and helpful. We are already planning our next trip back. Thanks for a rest filled long weekend, it was a great way to welcome fall.
