Convienient to Durango, Aztec and La Plata mountains and extremely quiet

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated our sons 40th birthday, Grandsons football game and hiking in the LaPlata mountains. Morning and evening visits from local deer gave us an opportunity for lots of pictures. Evening visit to local lake {less than a mile away) where ducks,geese and deer are viewable. Home was clean, quiet and displays a lot of interesting art works. The owner lives in separate residence on the property and made us feel welcome, but was not intrusive. Will definitely be back.

Spacious and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults appreciated this lovely property. The 3 bedrooms gave us space for everyone and the living/dining areas were comfortable and there was room for lounging, reading and watching tv. We also liked the outdoor area and gas grill. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was clean and well maintained. We liked being outside of Durango on a good sized rural property which was beautiful and had horses. It was an easy drive into town.

We recommend initially arriving before dark if possible as it can be a little hard to find the house after sunset. The owner/caregiver lives in an adjacent property which is convenient if you need assistance.

Casa de Mesa is the Best of Colorado

  • 5 of 5

As a native Coloradoan, we were looking for a great retreat to act as the center of our 'Staycation'. Coming in from the big city (Denver) we wanted the experience of a laid back, big sky, away from the hustle-bustle mountain retreat. We found that at Casa de Mesa and more. The home is luxurious, a value, an amazing outdoor environment and central to everything we needed from the small town atmosphere of Durango to the easy connectivity that led us to Mesa Verde, HovenWeep, 4 Corners and other wonderful adventures. Pastorius reservoir is only a 10 minute walk and while open for fishing, even for a splendid, beautiful walk, we were enchanted.

Jill is a wonderful host. The house's interior is charming and has all of the necessary amenities that allowed us to come home after a day of adventures to cook a bbq, have long games of Scattergories and Scrabble and look at the shooting stars 'til late. I run an Internet business so I was relieved that the wifi was fast. Our kids loved running all over and petting the horses and visiting the bulls running in the pasture next door.

We are already thinking about our next trip to Casa de Mesa. You simply can't go wrong.
