Amazing property!

This was a great place to stay. Very roomy and spotlessly clean. Very well-equipped. The large game room was perfect for our family with all of the game tables. Would definitely go back for another stay! Highly recommend.

The game room was a huge hit!!

  • 4 of 5

This funky, eclectic house was perfect for our big crowd! The kids loved the game room and there was tons of room for everyone. Close to everything, some road noise but not unexpected for the location. Cleaning could have been a bit more thorough (some spiderwebs/dust in lights and corners, notes from previous guests) but still generally very good. Overall a wonderful stay, would definitely recommend!

Family vacation; destination Durango/Hermosa!!

  • 5 of 5

The High Hopes Vacation Rental exceeded our expectations! The spacious home includes everything you need, from towels and bed linens to the spices in the kitchen cabinets. The huge family room with the large TV, pool, foosball, air hockey and ping pong tables is a great gathering place, yet the bedrooms are situated so that you still have plenty of privacy!! It's close to Durango to enjoy all they have to offer and just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of beautiful Hermosa! John, the property manager, did a great job of updating me prior to the trip. We vacationed with our kids and grandkids and plan to return in a couple or years when the younger ones can participate in the river rafting!! Loved everything about it!!

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.
