Wonderful home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Christmas vacation here was the absolute BEST Christmas we've ever had! The house was everything we hoped for and so much more! The pictures really do not do it justice. We had 6 in our group and were perfectly comfortable in this home. We arrived a few days before Christmas and didn't want to fool with getting a real tree, so we bought one at Walmart and Sigi was kind enough to let us use the ornaments that she had stored in the home. We enjoyed a beautiful white Christmas here... and it was perfect in every way! I just simply can not say enough good about this place. We talk about our Christmas there so often and wish we were there again! If you decide to rent this home, you will not regret it!

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting and gorgeous home. Four nights was not enough. Kitchen is wonderfully equipped, views are amazing. Home is even more spectacular than the photos. Very easy access to Durango, Silverton and Mesa Verde by car.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in Durango and loved staying in this home. There was plenty of room for our group of 6. The view from the large windows was beautiful! We enjoyed dinner on the deck each night. We were even lucky enough to see a bear on the other side of the river...the highlight of the trip for my kids :) Amazing hiking, Mesa Verde, downtown Durango, all within a short drive. Thank you!

This house is just fabulous. The river roaring within feet of the back porch is just beautiful we even caught a couple of fish! We are a family of 6 and we all just loved the home. At night, sitting on the beautiful couches by the magnificent fire place and played games was just so relaxing. The drive to Durango wasn't too far and the ride had such spectacular scenery that it was worth the few extra miles to get to town. I can't say enough of about how wonderful this house is. Thank you so much for making it such a special place to stay right down to the smallest of the little pigs and the pile of bears!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and descriptions of this home simply do not do it justice! The setting is beautiful with the Florida river flowing only a few steps from an expansive deck. The deck has comfortable lounge chairs, rockers and even a porch swing to relax. The kitchen has everything you could possible need from a viking stove to beautiful dishes and a pantry with spices and condiments. The floor to ceiling windows in the living area limit very little of the mountain and river views. I can only imagine the beauty in the winter months! The bedrooms also had beautiful views, comfortable beds and plenty of extra bedding. The master bathroom is spacious with a jetted but and large tiled shower. Everything is clean and perfectly maintained including a perfectly manicured lawn. There are personal touches throughout the cabin that make you feel at home. The drive to Durango is approximately 15 minutes and is well worth it. Along with our two daughter, (20 and 17), my family and I enjoyed the train to Silverton, river rafting, biking, a zipline tour, shopping and many great restaurants. The owner and property manager answered all of our questions and had everything ready for our arrival. We already look forward to returning to this cabin! Thank you Sigi, for sharing your oasis in the Colorado mountains.

Wow! This home is incredible!

  • 5 of 5

My family was thrilled when they arrived and saw how beautiful this home was. The river running by just outside the back door was so spectacular. The pictures did not capture the beauty of it! Everything inside the house is high quality and we were so comfortable there. We had everything we needed. Would love to return someday!
