Completely restored and updated log cabin with a perfect lake view. Walk the path to fish, swim and relax. Full modern kitchen, large living room with a fireplace, large bedroom with 2 queen beds, and a full bath. Two full Hide-a-beds in the living room provide additional accommodations. A covered deck is a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee (a glass of wine?) and the amazing lake view (you can hear the waves lapping at the shore). Satellite TV and complimentary Wi-Fi.
My wife and I both came to Durango area in December, 1999. I grew up and spent most of my life in Chicago, but always had dreams of retiring in Colorado. Katya moved to Durango from Saint Petersburg, Russia. It took us just about 7 years to finally meet, fall in love, and settle in together at this beautiful mountain lake in a little log cabin located next to the rental properties I manage. We love our simple life here on the lake enjoying the serenity of the lake from our deck or a pontoon boat, hiking on a beautiful trail or taking a ride in a tandem kayak. Our favorite place to go for food or drink is Pura Vida Café which is about a half a mile from the cabins.
Ron Bevil purchased this cabin in 2013
I decided to manage these cabins because of their unique lakefront location, the amazing craftsmanship found throughout all 3 cabins' interior and exterior features. And I am fortunate to live right next door!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!
These are truly special and rare lakefront cabins at Vallecito Lake.
We loved this cabin! It was just the right size for a vacation for a family of four. I was concerned about what to bring, but the cabin is well stocked. However, we did bring an extra roll of toilet paper and a roll of paper towels which were needed for our four night stay. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed, even spices and coffee (although we brought our own). However, there is not a dishwasher nor a garbage disposal. We were able to fish by just going a few yards down to the lake, but that spot was not conducive to swimming or kayaking so we had to make the short drive to a different part of the lake. We appreciated the free wifi and the satellite TV and DVR. There was no air conditioner but it really wasn't needed because of the cool temperatures. There were fans, though. Only four towels were provided so you might want to consider bringing extra if you don't like using the same towel four days in a row. It is very close to the other cabins. It is only about an hour drive to Durango/Purgatory.
Our stay in this cabin was well beyond any expectations we had when we booked our visit. The cabin is larger than the photos show and the owner has done a great job of combining the rustic feel of a log cabin with modern amenities. The view from the porch is breathtaking and our family could not be more pleased with our decision to book the property. A true gem.
We stayed in cabin 23 and we were impressed with the cleanliness. This property is well maintained and the property manager was very helpful and friendly. The cabin is right on the lake with great views from the porch. We are very happy with this little getaway and will most likely return. Thanks!
