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.

Perfect Setting

  • 4 of 5

Quiet and beautiful setting. We received great information about the cabin and area ahead of time. As suggested, we stopped off in Durango on the way up for groceries. There was coffee, kitchen towels and toilet paper upon arrival. There is a Keurig and regular coffee maker. The best thing was probably watching falling stars in the hot tub. We were visited by deer in the back yard. We didn't see any bear, but heard a loud noise one night. Probably a bear trying to get into the dumpster. It had been turned 90 degrees from the previous day. Electra Lake is beautiful and great for fishing: $15 daily fee or $5 if you just want to hike along the lake. The mud room was perfect for leaving our dogs while we went out.

Great place for a summer family get away.

Was the perfect place for our family vacation. Our boys loved the open space to run around and the hot tub was so nice to enjoy after the days of adventures.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Our stay this past June was nothing short of exceptional. The cabin was ready and waiting for us upon our arrival, with windows open. Each room was perfectly appointed and very clean. I had the best night of sleep our first night, than I have had in many years. The scenery is beautiful, including magnificent starry nights and plenty of wildlife. We took one of Roxanne's dining recommendations and went to the Sow's Ear and we were not disappointed. The only drawback to our visit was that we couldn't stay longer!

Our family of four and two dogs enjoyed this property. Very functional with 3 bed spaces and nice for the pups. Hot tub a great touch after a long day of driving or hiking. Kitchen not greatly stocked if you like to cook so bring your favorite items with you if you can.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spot to spend some quiet time - very comfortable bed and seating with fabulous internet connection. Loved the jacuzzi and sauna. Steve was very responsive to our questions.

Plenty of space on main floor for my husband and I - did not use the beds and bath upstairs. Easy to drive to Durango. Closer to Purgatory. Would rent this again.

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.
