Hermosa is just North of the City of Durango (8 miles) in the Animas river valley and is the perfect location for a great vacation. Hot springs, restaurants, grocery & liquor store, are all nearby. The area has a rural neighborhood feel with houses scattered about and lots of open space, forest and farmland. We live in a house on the North side of the 6.5 acre property and are available anytime if you need anything.
The Cider House Home Away # p385579 (VRBO # 385579) is next door and both can be rented together.
This classic 1940's house was slated for demolition in 1990 to make way for a KFC in North Durango. We moved it and did a complete remodel and addition. In 2015 we decided to turn it into a vacation rental and put in new carpet, kitchen counters, and re-finished the hardwood floors. The bathrooms were redone in 2017 and have all new tile and fixtures. A stone patio was built out back for grilling and relaxing in the back yard. It is a roomy house with an open floor plan and a master bed/bath addition. It has large windows with great mountain views and a sunny enclosed porch. If you want a nice comfortable house for your vacation, this is the one. Cherries, peaches, apricots, apples, and plumbs are available to pick in season. There are books, games, dvd's, and cable tv with a large flat screen tv for times at the house. The house has high speed wi-fi internet.
This house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and can sleep up to 8 in beds. The master has a queen bed, walk in closet, and master bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and the 3rd has two twin beds. On the enclosed porch there is a twin day bed and trundle bed great for hanging out on in the day and sleeping at night. There is also a pac-n-play for the little ones.
The Hermosa House is located in the Animas river valley between Durango and Durango Mountain Resort, about 10 min from Durango and 15 from Purgatory.
