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

A quaint quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second stay at the property and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time, which was fantastic. The home is cozy and is very well maintained. The beds are so comfortable! What could beat a fabulous night's rest, waking up and drinking your Durango Joe's out on the front porch?! Thank you Holly for your hospitality and making sure we enjoyed Durango and all it's beauty!

Beautiful home in a beautiful town.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our dog over 5 days in July. The house was perfect, with a nice backyard for our Golden Retriever and a spacious front porch for reading and relaxing. Other highlights were the open layout, the fully stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, and artistic furnishings. We would love to stay here again!

Lovely home for our stay in Durango

  • 5 of 5

This home is a lovely, convenient place to stay while in Durango. The furnishings are beautiful and the sleeping arrangements were perfect for our party of 6. Although we didn't cook at all, the kitchen looked fabulous for making meals. A terrific choice for our family.

A Great Way to Spend the 4th.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay for the 4th of July. Unfortunately there were no fireworks this year but we still had a great time in town. This place is relatively close to town as we walked several times. The house was peaceful and the open concept kitchen and family room made it great for our family to be together. We also liked the tranquility of the bedrooms and the beds were very comfortable. We spent most of our time on the front porch as pictured as my kids played soccer and did gymnastics in the front yard. We were a little bummed that we couldn't use the large backyard because it wasn't as finished as the front, but the front was just enough. We would definitely stay here again as it was perfect for our family of 4.

We loved the in town placement of Wild Horse. Convenient to downtown we were able to walk or bike to most everything. It also is located next to an entrance that leads to the Animas River Trail. There are many things to do during the summer in Durango and Holly provides most everything you need. We will be back!

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.
