Great vacation home and in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This home was more than we expected. It has plenty of room for the 5 families that stayed. There is plenty of space for everyone to sleep and even more floor space for younger ones that can sleep on an air mattress. It is located just north of Durango and has easy access. It has plenty of bathroom space and an efficient set of washer/dryers that can do a load of laundry in under an hour. There are two nice outdoor grills on the deck that provided our cooking for hamburgers and hot dogs. John is super nice and easy to work with, he was available if we needed him. The spacious game room allowed for hours of entertainment for our younger children and teenagers. Just across the highway from the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Train allowed us to watch the three daily trains make their journey north and south through the mountains.

Family/Friends Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! What a fantastic home. My family, in-laws and close family friends had a great time at the High Hopes Vacation Rental. House featured a fantastic layout. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. And the game room was the icing on the cake. The kids were able to enjoy each other with plenty of games and we all had many ping pong tournaments. House had everything we needed for a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best Christmas ever! Property manager was amazing and so helpful! Even in a snow storm made sure our walk way was shoveled and clear. The house was perfect! Loved the kitchen, was perfect for cooking our Christmas feast. Loved the bathrooms, I wished I could have stayed longer. We all would come together at night in the games room for some quality family time. Couldn't have asked for anything more! Perfect 5 stars!

We had a great time at this house. The game room

was perfect for the kids and the french doors close,

keeping the rest of the house quiet. The property

manager was very accommodating. We had

everything we needed and the location was perfect.

Four wheel drive could be helpful for the driveway

in times of icy weather. We would definitely stay

there again!

  • 5 of 5

The Guesthouse was absolutely perfect for our

family's summer get-together! The inside was

comfortable, clean, and handsomely outfitted to

match the landscape with the log furniture. Our

family spent a lot of time at the house, cooking,

BQ'ing, playing games, laying in the hammock, etc.

It definitely felt like a retreat because it was in such

a beautiful and peaceful location. My favorite

things were the large double-headed shower, the

hammock, the view of the Animus River set against

the mountains, and being able to watch the

Silverton-Durango Train going by each day. John

was a perfect host as well, going out of his way to

make sure we had a perfect stay...which we did. I

would love to come back in the Fall or Winter!
