Durango Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

What could be more ideal than to experience the Colorado Rockies in a rustic but comfortable/cozy cabin. No crowds, no city noise; just you on the deck in summer watching the wildlife or soaking under the stars in the hot tub in winter. Totally renovated and decorated in a wonderful 'mountain chic' style, this cabin boasts designer touches: granite counter tops, new tile throughout, original sculpture and art. The Bear Hollow Cabin offers a perfect summer or winter retreat. The three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with a set of twins), with a queen sofa bed in one of two living areas provide comfortable sleeping for eight. Six miles from Durango Mt Resort (Purgatory) and fantastic winter fun, 20 minutes to historic downtown Durango and a short hike to beauitful Electra Lake makes this a perfect location for any season!

The unique floor plan is perfect for a romantic getaway for two but with two living areas, it offers plenty of room for 'the kids' to hang out separate from 'the adults' of an extended family. A unique sculpture of a bear in a tree hollow greets you when you first walk in the front door. The cozy Vermont stove offers atmosphere and warmth to watch TV or curl up with a book. The double sofa bed converts this second living area into a second bedroom if needed. Just down the hall is a bedroom with twin beds, full bath (shower) and laundry room.

The second level enjoys another living area with a wood burning stove (with glass front and options of opening to see and feel the crackle of the real wood fire). A fully equipped kitchen and large dining table is a great place for family meals. The second bedroom (with a queen bed) and another full bath complete this floor. The third bedroom (with a queen bed) and half bath is on the top floor.

Look out the front windows and you have beautiful views of the woods and the 11,000 foot 'Hermosa Cliffs.' Look out any window and dense aspen and evergreen woods will enchant you. Walk out the back door to Electra Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Southwest Colorado where fishing is superb and the views breathtaking. A big deck with a large hot tub and dining area provide additonal outdoor living areas.

You are near the historic town of Durango but miles away from the stress and hassel of city life. In winter, enjoy a winter wonderland at Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory).

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

If you think this cabin looks great online, just wait till you arrive. It is private, peaceful, immaculate, and so cozy. The house and surrounding property are extremely well maintained, the back deck is huge and so relaxing, and there is plenty of space to hang out. We met the owner, Roger, and he couldn't have been nicer. I would recommend this cabin to anyone, it was perfection.

Cabin Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bear Hollow Cabin for a few nights during a girlfriends' Colorado road trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It's one of those cabins that looks absolutely fantastic online...and somehow ends up being even better in person! We felt right at home with everything we needed. The location is convenient yet secluded - about 20 minutes outside of Durango. The layout of the cabin is unique - three different levels each with a bedroom. There were just two of us so we each had a bedroom on a different floor - talk about privacy! The middle level with two decks, the kitchen, dining room, family room and restroom was our home base. Speaking of decks - I could really just live on the back deck in the hot tub! We enjoyed stargazing at night. I'll wrap this up by saying that we completely scrapped one of our sightseeing days to just spend time relaxing in the cabin! It's THAT good. When it was time to move on - we knew we had more fun in store but were sad to leave. We will be back.

Perfect Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I spoke to Terri I knew this Cabin was the one for us. The pictures do not do this Cabin

justice if that's even possible. Immaculate, warm, & cozy, The Cabin needs nothing. Beautiful property, views

and wildlife. We have already decided to return in the spring. Peaceful and most relaxing getaway I can remember.

Terri and Dick, it was so nice meeting you both in person. We look forward to having those wings next trip. Far and

away this cabin is worth your consideration for an amazing retreat.

This cabin was perfect for a getaway for some rest & relaxation! Very cozy and very well maintained! The kitchen is stocked well, everything was tidy and clean! The location is absolutely perfect for peace and quiet! Just a few short minutes from skiing. Enjoyed the hot tub in the beautiful outdoors! Would definitely recommend!

Bear Hollow Cabin

A very warm and cozy cabin that is so well maintained it looks new. The interior and exterior pictures do not do justice to this cabin. Looking forward to future visits.

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is an adorable cabin. The pictures do not do the interior justice, it's so cozy and romantic we found ourselves looking forward to coming back to our temporary home as much as we did the activities around Durango. Kimberly was very friendly and helpful and called us the day after we checked in, although since the cabin was basically perfect when we arrived we didn't need anything.

As for amenities: the wifi speed was good enough to stream movies, the hot tub worked perfectly, it's secluded but with easy access to the highway, very well furnished, stocked and maintained, and the list goes on and on. Should we find Durango in our vacation plans again we'll be coming right back to this cabin without giving it a second thought.

My only suggestion, and it's a small one, is a modern TV with HDMI inputs in the downstairs sitting room (there is one upstairs) would have been nice to have.
