Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, Loft, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 6

Sales tax # 025450290001. 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 and Relaxing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin to enjoy. My wife and I stayed here at the end of February and really enjoyed it. Cabin has everything you need, a fantastic hot tub, a Sauna (didn't get a chance to use) and in general is very well taken care of with plenty of sleeping room for bigger groups. If you are there in the Wintertime I would definitely recommend 4wd. It sits up pretty high and with all the snow we saw while we were there I'm definitely glad we had a 4wd to get through it. The cabin is oriented in a way where you have plenty of privacy and in general it's a pretty quiet little community with homes that I believe are mostly vacation homes so not occupied all that frequently. Only a few minutes to the ski area and Needles. It's a short and fun hike to the lake with some fantastic views. If your a bigger party or just a couple wanting a quiet trip, this is really a fantastic value in general and a place we would definitely stay again at on our next trip to the Durango area!

Great ski cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had two couples and a large dog drive up from Texas to ski at Purg. We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin and its amenities. We enjoyed grilling dinner on the back deck, soaking in the hot tub, sweating in the sauna, and the place was just the right size. Cozy but not too small. The kitchen was stocked with all necessary items such as plates, bowls, pans, etc. The Keurig was a nice addition as was the under counter dish washer which we did not expect based on the retnal description. There was plenty of snow around the cabin and short hikes would result in going in to your knee or waist. 4WD is required to get to this cabin. We had a Tacoma and an Outback which each handled the back roads fine. We had one question while visiting and the owner promptly responded. Great communication! Being somewhat secluded was nice. It was easy to let the dog out to do their business, it was quiet, and the untouched snow was nice to play in.

Perfect Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (two adults, one teen, one child) stayed here for 11 nights over the Christmas break and the home was perfect! When we arrived there was a fire going and a beautiful Christmas tree in the living room. There were some great updates that we were not expecting (a brand new dishwasher and beautiful new front and back decks). The bedrooms are good size with very comfortable beds. The kitchen had everything we needed and had a great open feeling. The living room was the perfect size and the mud room was very nice for all our snow attire. The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and offered beautiful views from the deck. The owners were wonderful and brought us a cute welcome basket, since we were staying for a long time they came at the mid point and cleaned the hot tub, they would also come and clear the walkways of snow/ice. The house is located perfectly between downtown Durango and the Purgatory ski resort. You defiantly need 4wheel drive to access the house, we received 24 inches of snow during our stay. From the backyard you can go exploring and not even notice that you have neighbors. We would highly recommend this property to others and we hope to return one day.

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.
