This charming 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom dwelling can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests, serving as a terrific lodging choice for families, friends, or couples out for an authentic Colorado getaway.

The home also features custom stained glass work throughout. All the amenities you need to feel as relaxed as possible during your stay are here, including high speed wireless internet, in-unit laundry, and a fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the essential cooking appliances.

You’re practically guaranteed a good night’s sleep in any of the home’s newly renovated bedrooms - the master bedroom is the ultimate retreat, featuring a king-sized bed and Jacuzzi soaking tub that you’ll surely appreciate after a long day of vigorous outdoor activities. Bedroom 2 is the Southwest Room with new queen bed and blackout shades, adorned with Indian rugs and a nice leather recliner with views of the mountains.

Outside, the house boasts attractive flagstone walkways, outstanding views of the La Plata Mountains and unparallelled scenery in every direction, including breathtaking sights of pastoral fields to the south, open fields with horses idly grazing, and phenomenal sunsets. In the fall, you'll love being surrounded by the fantastic autumn foliage. This serene 9-acre setting offers utmost privacy with no other houses close by. Look forward to unwinding on one of the home’s shaded outdoor patios, where you can take in the 360-degree views and keep your eyes peeled for the abundance of wildlife on the premises - deer frequent the property all the time, while the yard serves as the annual nesting ground of many bluebirds, orioles, redtail hawks, meadowlarks, robins, and great horned owls in the spring and fall.

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!

We had a wonderful stay! The house was perfect for my husband and I plus three sixteen year old boys! We loved that it was close to everything but secluded for that peaceful return from the slopes. Jill was great! I will definetly return!

Everyone loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the house for 2 nights with 2 friends. One of the nights my sister was also there for dinner. Everyone was in love with the house and the views. Even the person who was given the "kid's bedroom" couldn't complain because the room had a view and exit to the lovely back patio. My tired muscles appreciated the jetted tub, and master bathroom speakers made the experience even better.

The house was great, a lot of attention to detail. Everything was thought of to make it feel like home. Super clean! Awesome location for everything-we went all over Colorado with this as our central point. I'd definitely stay there again! Jill was great!

Only downside for us is that it got very warm in the later afternoon and into the evening during August with no AC.
