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! Unfortunately, I am allergic to dogs and cats so we do not allow them.
3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom located in small mountain community

Wished we could have stayed longer
One of the nicest rentals I've ever stayed at. Beautiful cabin that was extremely clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds. Cabin was well stocked with all the essentials. It is a 25 min. drive into Durango which was fun to explore. There is so much to do in the area. I wished we could have stayed longer. I hope to make it back out to this area and would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
Clean, comfortable and reasonably priced
This cabin was a great find for us. Our son lives in the same development, so it made a lot of sense compared to a motel in Durango, some 30 miles away. It also made a great place for our family to gather over Easter weekend. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the amenities included WiFi service, a clean propane Weber grill, front and rear decks with patio furniture, Bose sound systems in the living room and master bedroom, a picturesque location, and a quiet, friendly neighborhood. The owner was courteous and responsive to our questions and other needs. We will definitely try to rent this place again the next time we visit the area. The only reason my rating is a four and not a five is because the streets are not paved.
Perfect cabin in the mountains
The cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The owners were very responsive and helpful. We definitely recommend this property for your stay in Colorado.
The cabin is in a beautiful, quiet wooded neighborhood. There were two nice bucks hanging around the front yard grazing on the grass. Of all the VRBO rentals we have stayed in, this was the cleanest and nicest by far. The "no pet" rule was a plus to us.
Colorado Cabin Escape
This is such a great escape! We stayed for 11 days and loved it! The cabin is very well set up, and great kitchen for cooking :) Nice little Community, with a pond, playgrounds and tons of wildlife, it was just what we needed to cool off from the hot Arizona Summer.
We will for sure be back! Owners where very easy and helpful to work with also :)
We’re thrilled that you enjoyed your stay Shelley, and we’d love to have you back anytime! Thank you for taking such care with our cabin. Jan
A beautiful cabin with everything you will need!
We stayed at Stan and Jan's cabin for a week and absolutely loved it! It is nestled in the trees and is such a beautiful cabin. Everything is quality in it...from the furniture to the new carpet to the fixtures to the towels. The kitchen has EVERYTHING you can imagine. You will not need to bring anything with you. We brought our groceries and cooked up everything we needed to with ease. Also, this cabin is very clean! You'd think with all of the wood and decor that there would be a little dust...not even a little! We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the deer in the yard (we saw deer every day near the cabin!) and seeing the American flag lit up at night. We also enjoyed sitting on the back porch in the cool breeze after grilling up some burgers on their grill! There is plenty of room in this house as well! The bedrooms are large and there is plenty of space! And Jan is easy to get ahold of and responds quickly! I would definitely come back to this cabin and would recommend it if you are in the Bayfield or Durango area. We mostly did stuff in Durango and it's about a 30 minute drive to anywhere in Durango. But it was nice to retreat back to our little cabin at the end of each day!
