About the property

City of Durango Permit #11-183

Situated on a huge lot, in the heart of Downtown Durango, the Wild Horse Guesthouse is only five blocks from the Durango & Silverton Train Station.

This two bedroom one bath house is uber comfy. Full of light, and decorated in what we call Modern Cowboy style. All the luxuries of a boutique hotel await: claw foot tub, tile shower, new memory foam beds, fine linens, and an American Leather Comfort Sleeper couch in the living room. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom, and a queen in the second bedroom. Then the Queen Sleeper couch and a nice full sized futon in the living room. Four beds total.

The kitchen is complete with real knives, gas range, full sized refrigerator, island, and all the dishes and pans you could want. Open floor plan lends itself to family gatherings. There is A/C in the summer and a beautiful gas fire place in the winter.

The front yard is fully landscaped with a nice cool lawn to play on and a covered porch with furnishings. The porch is new and with post and beam construction under a rusty metal roof is is super stylish. Being on the north side of the house in the summer it is a great place to eat al fresco.

The back yard is huge and surrounded by a privacy fence. There is even a doggy door to the side yard that leads to the back yard. Woof.

Location is where it is at: half a block from the River Walk trail to Santa Rita Park, a short walk to Durango Natural Foods Co-Op our great local grocery, Horse Gulch Trail System, the Train Station, coffee and breakfast places, and of corse all the downtown restaurants and shops just a short walk away.

The Wild Horse Guesthouse, a beautiful place for your family to explore Durango.

About Holly Jason

My husband Ben and I started doing Vacation Rentals so that I can stay home with our son Luca who is now 2 years old. I have a business degree from Fort Lewis College and have lived here in Durango for over 18 years. With a professional background in Design, I have had a ton of fun decorating the guesthouses in my own Modern Cowboy style. Clean and Beautiful. That is how I like it.

Holly Jason purchased this house in 2001

Lovely cottage in a quiet location. Although it was a little farther from downtown than we expected, downtown was still only minutes away by car. A nice place to stay while visiting Durango, a really cool town. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Very comfortable place.

Cozy, Modern, Well-Appointed, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family (hubs, wife, son (13), and daughter (7) loved this little house. Both couches were comfortable to sit on and our daughter slept on the futon. The beds were way comfortable and the rooms were spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with kitchen essentials and more. The big back yard was wonderful for our pup. Neighborhood was quiet and close to everything without being in the bustle of everything. Holly was fabulous with answering our questions and making sure we had all we needed. Next time we are in Durango we will rent this place again!!!

Clean, well equipped, and a great location for walking into town!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was perfect for our stay over Christmas and added the right of extra room so everyone could get together and yet have their own space to retreat to. Holly was very responsive before and during our stay.

Only five blocks to the Train Station. One block from the River Trail that leads to Santa Rita Park and the River. Seven blocks to our Local Food Co-Op Grocery store. Easy walk to tons of great restaurants and shops. This house is on the last street in town so there is not a lot of traffic.
