Scenic home base for exploring Durango

  • 5 of 5

Wanted my parents to see the Durango area during their Colorado visit in mid-October, and the house was perfect for us: quiet, roomy, attractive, and bright, with nice views and enticing outdoor spaces. The kitchen was well-equipped, especially by vacation rental standards. There was plenty of seating in the living room area, and the master bedroom with king bed was especially roomy. We enjoyed a walk to the nearby lake/recreation area. We were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to Durango, yet when we were at the house we felt like we were in a peaceful rural setting. Our host was helpful and accessible when needed. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect getaway home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa De Mesa. It's a great location close to town, but set away from the noise and hustle. The house is very well provisioned and comfortable, and Jill was a wonderful hostess going out of her way to be friendly and helpful in all matters. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa De Mesa! It is the ideal home for relaxing, and drinking in the breathtaking Colorado views. The house is beautifully maintained, comfortable and clean. Jill was a wonderful host; all of our needs were met! A quaint lake is a short walk down the road, and downtown Durango is 10-15 minutes away. We plan on returning again and again!
