Both musicians, and retired CEO (Daniel) and Lawyer (Polly) have a great love of the outdoors and adventure. They have chosen Durango as the place they most wanted to live in, and continue their adventures in the great mountain west and around the globe.
Daniel Morgenstern purchased this house in 2000
Having been privileged to travel extensively throughout the United States and much of the world, we found Durango to be the BEST place we could choose to live in. Because we keep traveling in our motor home etc, our lovely home is available for guests to rent while we are out adventuring further.
In this day and age, natural beauty and the privacy to enjoy it without intrusion is a rare benefit amply provided by our beautiful mountain home.
ALL 12 families that rented our house in 2009 including multigenerational groups from toddlers to seniors LOVED their time in our home and had a fabulous time enjoying all the wonderful attractions Durango has to offer from here! We had many weekly guests including guests from Great Britain and one family that stayed for a month and had their families visit them here too! EVERYBODY FOUND OUR HOUSE TO BE THE PERFECT DURANGO VACATION RETREAT!

We had a fabulous time staying in your beautiful home. We were able to kick back and relax. Early morning and evenings were nice relaxing on the outside deck watching the birds and the deer come up so close. I did stress out some with all the amazing things you have in your home when my smaller grandchildren would play, but all in all we had an amazing time.
This was the second summer we rented this home. We had five adults and two children with plenty of space and activities for everyone. The location is quiet and secluded, yet within easy driving distance of Durango. The owners provided excellent recommendations on local activities and amenities. We felt very welcome in this home.
We spend 4 nights in this home in June 2015, but wish we had stayed longer. We had a great time. The delightful homeowners were easy to get in touch with and promptly answered any questions we had. The home sits just a short drive from Durango, but is on large enough property that you really get a sense of privacy. We hope to return next year.
We enjoyed staying in this beautiful, spacious home for a fun filled sibling reunion. Loved the outdoor decks where we enjoyed having breakfast and dinners, looking out over the mountains and meadows. I loved the hummingbirds which flocked to the feeders on the deck.
All rooms are very nicely decorated and furnished. Kitchen has high end appliances. We were there in July, and had perfect weather....never needed the air conditioning, just opened windows to enjoy the cool, fresh air. Great location. We went to Mesa Verde one day. Rode the Narrow Gauge railway another day. The owners were great to work with. They even provided a detailed list of places to visit and nearby restaurants. Their list included hikes and even their favorite picnic spot, which we went to for a picnic and were in awe of the gorgeous site. Overall, it was a perfect vacation and we would all highly recommend this home. We hope to return someday soon!
The owner was pleasant to deal with. The house and location were as advertised. The hot tub and pool were nice to have. The closets, drawers and refrigerator were full of the owners clothes, belongings and food. The result is that six of us lived out of our suitcases. NOT why I rented a house.
Spent a week here with my wife in early August to escape the Oklahoma heat for a while. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the house the perfect retreat for a relaxing stay. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The 20 minute commute to Durango and local attractions was easy enough. The house is well situated with pleasing views and plenty of privacy. The house is wonderfully decorated. We stayed during the hottest time of the year, and even though there was no central air conditioning (two small window units one upstairs, one down), we were able to manage to keep the house comfortable with little extra effort. Thanks again to the owners for making it available. Would stay there again.
