Overview

Southwestern Colorado Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, Loft, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 6

Big year this year for our lovely cabin! New paint job this spring 2014 and now brand new decks and a new hot tub this November 2014! Really exciting to love our cabin up a little bit!

We are in an excellent area of Southwest Colorado in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. We are close to many attractions and the location of our property is an attraction in itself. We are up on a mesa secluded from all the crowds and noise. We are halfway between Durango and Silverton in the heart of the San Juan mountains. This property is a full acre in the mountains with a private hot tub and sauna. Pure luxury in a gorgeous forest. There are great views of the Hermosa Cliffs and a picture perfect mountain backdrop. We are high in elevation which allows you to escape the heat of Durango.

Spruce Mesa Cabin: This is a perfect Colorado mountain getaway! We are located in the San Juan Mountains a mile back from highway 550 atop a mesa with great views of Hermosa Cliffs. We are just 6 miles south from Durango Mountain Resort and 20 miles north of Durango. We are located less than a mile from Electra Lake. We are pet friendly, wanting you to have a great vacation with your entire family. 4-WD required in the winter season.

Accommodations: This property is definitely a cozy cabin designed for indulgence and relaxation. Make a cup of cocoa and curl up with a great book. We have a private hot tub as well as a sauna with no 'pool hours'!! We are in a secluded neighborhood with breathtaking views. This was a home until December 2009 and it still feels like a home with beautiful decor and the finishing touches you don't usually get with a rental. This would make a wonderful memory for your family and friends.

Activities: The San Juan Mountains is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the country. Sit in the hot tub on the back deck and enjoy the snow covered peaks. Summer time in the San Juan Mountains is spectacular. A hike or bike amid the wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife in the high country is unforgettable. There are numerous trails that will inspire you. Electra Lake is a great destination for fishing and they charge a very small fee for its use. The lake is over 6 miles long! There are many other picturesque lakes in the area for public use. Durango Mountain resort offers many family activities including an alpine slide, mountain biking, and chair lift rides. A scenic drive north to Silverton or Ouray known as the Million Dollar Highway is jaw-dropping. There are Jeep tours of mining towns, rafting, fly fishing, and the famous Narrow Gauge Railroad!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lives up to everything it promises. This is a beautiful property that the owners have obviously taken great pride in maintaining. My favorite activity was dimming the back lights, and sitting in the hot tub on the back deck with a view of your own personal planetarium.

Wonderful House in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this house while visiting the Durango/Silverton area. After a day of activities, we looked forward to relaxing in the hot tub in the evening when the air temperature dropped. We happened to stay when the southwest was suffering from a major heatwave. Daytime temps were in the mid to upper 90's in the afternoon, but dropped quickly as the sun was setting. Didn't use the sauna as it was just too hot for summer, more appropriate for the other 3 seasons in my opinion.

The panoramic views couldn't be beat, especially in the early morning. The grill on the back deck came in handy for making some meals in the evening. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area as well.

Steve and Roxanne were easy to work with and responded to emails and phone calls promptly. There are plenty of pamphlets in the house recommending a number of activities to choose from in the area.

A couple of notes for families staying here: the description of the property states there were some DVD's, however I never found any. The house has a good wifi system, so we brought our Roku system to stream movies or shows in the evening. The satellite TV channel selection is adequate also.

The kitchen supplies were more than sufficient for cooking on the stove top or grill, although some more steak knives would come in handy.

This place is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 kids, and our dog stayed here for almost a week and had a wonderful time. This house is located in a great spot. Secluded but yet close enough to anything in the area you want to do. We highly recommend this house to any family planning a Durango vacation. We will definitely come back!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was OK, a few minor details that we were able to remedy . Just a FYI, this is a dog friendly cabin so bring a lint roller for the dog hair. The cabin is located in a beautiful area, we had deer eating in the back yard and when we went for a hike we ran across more deer and wild turkey. Electra Lake was closed but there were other places near by to fish.

Owner's Response: Electra Lake is a private lake that has a gate house and always opens around Memorial Day weekend. Sorry we did not meet your expectations. We have a Shark vacuum for pets in the closet that I feel does a great job cleaning up after pets because it has attachments for the furniture. I would have dropped by while you were out and took care of it for you if you would have asked. Happy you were able to get the rewards of spring with lots of animal sightings.

Had a wonderful family get away, hiking, hot tub bing under the stars, and playing games by the fire

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time inside and out. Arrived in summer-like weather, and closed up and left with 2 inches of snow on the ground. Your home is perfectly outfitted for all of it. Love Colorado mounains in May!

Beautiful, private and cozy! Loved the hot tub!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the cabin. What a beautiful location nestled in the pines and the cabin was very warm and inviting. It was a perfect getaway. When we weren't out sight seeing we enjoyed staying at the cabin cooking our own meals and relaxing in the hot tub and sauna in the evenings. We would definitely like to come back again soon!!

Map

Car: necessary

The resort is still at 8,800 feet elevation making it usually 10 degrees F cooler than Durango and offers a cool alpine escape from the summer heat.

Ski: Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) prides itself for being a family friendly resort for Alpine skiing and is a short 6 mile drive. Snowboarding, Alpine skiing, and even ski biking are available. The mountain has lots to offer all levels of skiers and DMR does an outstanding job of having plenty of staff to make a safe, family environment. Outstanding Nordic skiing is available across the highway from the resort. Breathtaking views. There are many guide services offering snowmobile, snocat, and sleigh ride experiences.
