About connie 720-998-7272

contact Connie 720-998-7272

connie 720-998-7272 purchased this cabin in 2005

Why connie 720-998-7272 chose Southwestern Colorado

After camping around Lake Vallecito for many years, and staring at this historical cabin next to Graham Creek Campground. I knew that place could be my heaven here on earth. Back when it was just a bunk house for the ranch hands working the cattle ranch where Lake Vallecito exists today. In the years that followed rooms were added, including a kitchen. You can still look around and see some original walls and décor. The property is a half-acre however completely surround by BLM and National Forests . The most spectecular view of the Needle Mountains and the Lake.

What makes this cabin unique

We offer a paddle boat, two new kayaks, hot tub, canoe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow what a Beautiful Place. The views from the upper deck were so fantastic. The forest is all around you. We walked right out of the Cabin to the Lake. Fishing was good. Our Dogs had a blast ! The Cabin is quaint and has everything we needed. Hot Tub at night you can see the stars unlike the city. Our only complaint is we couldn't stay longer.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Search no more, this place is the best you'll find in Lake Vallecito! (And I did my homework with days of searching websites.)

The location is ideal for a quiet remote getaway, but still only a 1/2 hour drive to Durango. We loved having a private beach just steps away and the hot tub was a plus on those chilly mountain evenings. The views are breathtaking and the outdoor space has tons of seating so you can enjoy the lake from several areas in the yard.

The bed and furnishings were all very comfortable with lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the views. The owners were extra accomodating and attentive to our needs. They have furnished their cabin with all the amenities you need plus lots of cool extras - a heated, bidet toilet seat, TV's in every room, paddleboat, grill, gas firepits, etc.

Be sure to visit Ska Brewery in Durango - free tours at 4 PM (We are big fans)! Also take a drive out to Mesa Verde and up to Silverton (or ride the train.) Lots of fun things to do in this area for families. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two adults and two littles) and dog had such a good time at this cabin! The kids played and played in the sand. We enjoyed the hot tub multiple nights under the stars. The weather was perfect. Durango is close. We enjoyed some great seafood and burgers. Many great little shops to explore as well! We canoed a couple times and enjoyed hiking the beach area with literally no one else around. Peace and quiet. Just what we needed! The cabin was clean and ready for us when we arrived! The scenery was beautiful!!

A really lovely end of summer get-away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our son spent three nights and four days on the lake. It was our last get away together for the summer, and it was wonderful. My husband spent his early mornings and evenings fishing and caught a number of bass. My son and I enjoyed kayaking and paddle boating around the lake. In the evenings we cooked at home using the kitchen and the barbecue grill and even the propane fire for Smore's! My husband and I were able to enjoy a glass of wine on the patio and in the hot tub while our son entertained himself with the cartoon network. There is a lovely trail right next to the house that goes along the lake that my son and I also enjoyed. My favorite spot was the swing in the front yard overlooking the lake where I spent hours knitting and reading. It was very comfortable in the cabin and quiet in the woods and the views of the mountains and the lake were amazing. We enjoyed our weekend and would definitely recommend the lake front cabin for a relaxing weekend and quality time with family. Thanks, Connie, for being such a great host-We'll definitely be returning soon!

Owner's Response: What can I say except I am so glad you enjoyed and appreciate the area and all the wonders of nature. The Kayaks were added this year and seem to be a great hit with our guests especially since you can walk right down to the lake with them. My favorite spot is the swing as well. We know the Cabin is small, but why stay in when there is so much to offer outside. Thank you again for being our guest and come back for 20% off. Sincerely Connie

Sweet Cabin, Amazing outside space!

  • 4 of 5

This place is the best location 'on the lake'! Just spent a week there with my family and couldn't have asked for a better location. We loved having the private beach with access to they kayaks and paddle boat. The views are breathtaking and the outdoor space offers many options for shade or sun and plenty of space for lawn games. Dogs are welcomed and love the lake access as well as chasing the chipmunks!

The cabin was comfortable and offered all the amenities you need plus a few extras. The gas grill was a plus and the hot tub was a great place to take in all the stars.

Many thanks to the owners Connie and Brad for sharing this little bit of paradise - We will be back!

Sweet little cabin , large peaceful shady outside space, mountain views and easy access to the lake.

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a wonderful weekend joining up for a family reunion at the Lake Cabin on Vallecito Lake.

It was a perfect setting to gather family old and young. Most of the outside space is flat with shade and plenty of space to play lawn games. Dogs are welcomed and stay busy with all the chipmunks.

Cabin space is on the small side....but not a problem if you are willing to gather outside in the numerous places and spend your evening around the outside gas fireplace.

Many thanks to the owners Connie and Brad....they we very friendly and easy to communicate with....returning calls in the same day with any questions that came up. We will be back. Thanks

Once again, a wonderful time at such a beautiful place. We love the solitude, the beautiful views, the fishing, and cozy cabin. This was our second trip to the cabin & it is at the top of our list of relaxing, beautiful places to go. Dogs loved the swimming & chasing chipmunks & squirrels. Everyone tired at the end of the day! Thanks again, Connie, for sharing your lovely getaway with us!
