|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Completely restored and updated adorable log cabin just steps away from the lake. There is nothing between this cabin and Vallecito Lake! Walk to fish and swim or just enjoy the ambiance of sailboats going by.
The cabin has a queen bed with a couch that pulls out into a second queen if you need it, fireplace, full kitchen and ¾ bath. 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). One of the unique features of this lakeside cabin is the large fire pit nestled under the trees in front of the lake to enjoy.
It's a perfect romantic getaway for a couple, or a small family. There's not a sweeter, cleaner or cozier log cabin located right on the lake at Vallecito! 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.
My husband and I could not have asked for a better stay, it was beautiful, secluded and serene!
My family enjoyed this cabin immensely. We all said it was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. It was a clean cabin with all kitchen supplies needed. The view was spectacular. We will definitely be coming back to the Lincoln Log cabin, or maybe one of the larger ones, if we have other friends or families join us.
My husband & I just returned from our honeymoon here. It was gorgeous in the mountains, right on the lake. The area is very quiet and private, felt like just us & nature. We were far enough away to feel like it was just a cozy, romantic getaway but also close enough to make some fun daytrips, we explored the amazing cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde and took a ride on the Million Dollar Highway. We enjoyed dining and shopping in Durango as well as checking out Silverton, Quray, Ridgway & Pagosa Springs.
Thanks for allowing us to enjoy the tranquility of your cabin for a week. We look very forward to a return trip in the future.
