About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom located in small mountain community

Peaceful setting in the woods with all the comforts of home. Wake up surrounded by the serenity of nature, where you'll encounter a variety of wildlife...deer, elk, birds, rabbits, in your own front yard. Enjoy a leisurely hike, right out your front door, or just a few miles away you'll find trails to challenge the most avid hikers. Trout/Salmon fishing, rafting, soaking in the hot springs, skiing, biking all within a lovely 1-25 mile drive. Fine dining and entertainment all near by. Don't forget to ride the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train! For winter sports fun, it's just a short drive to Durango Mountain Resort or Wolf Creek. But if your idea of fun is just hanging out at the cabin and taking a nice winter walk, you can hike or snow shoe in the freshly fallen white stuff, then run inside to warm by the fire and sip hot chocolate! Ice skate at Chapman Ice Rink or experience a sleigh ride in Durango. Phenomenal sledding hills are located in our mountain community, at the nearby lake and park. Experience the peace and serenity of our little piece of heaven. You'll no doubt be planning your next visit, before you even begin to head back home!

Amazing home !

  • 5 of 5

Jan and Stan went out of their way to help us when another rental fell through. This home exceeded all of our expectations. The home was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. My family and I had a great stay and will be back again!!

A perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed your beautiful and peaceful home outside Durango. It was great to discover a new area too. The home had everything we needed and was totally comfortable. We even saw a BEAR walking through the neighborhood nearby, our first ever! There were deer in the yard frequently.and it was so lovely to see how the people and wildlife lived together so nicely. Really a treat for us city dwellers! Working with Jan was so easy and helpful. Thanks again for everything and we will definitely be back!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this comfortable mountain home. It is attractively decorated and extremely clean. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the deer and birds after our busy days exploring the Vallecito and Durango area.

Beautiful home, with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome, we came to Durango to ski and snowboard. The house was little drive to purgatory resort but it was a pleasant drive through the country back roads and was well worth it. We enjoyed spending time there just relaxing and taking in the surroundings.

Beautiful cabin in the country

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our five day stay at this beautiful modern cabin. Everything was as promised - 3 bedrooms, a stocked kitchen, entertainment options for the evening, and a mostly quiet place in the country. We were there to see the fall color in and around Durango, and we timed it perfectly. The cabin is a ways out of town, so we had to make that drive each day, but the trade off for having our own private place was very much worth it. The hosts are responsive and interested in making the stay an enjoyable one. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants nice accommodations, very nice space, and a Colorado country experience.
