The Eagles Nest Cabin
Elevation 7,939 Feet
There are several great rentals to choose from at the Vallecito vacation rental market. Many share similar amenities. NONE enjoy the most unique location, and breathtaking views. It is unequivocally one of a kind like no other. Eagles Nest has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and is about 1,425 square feet. It can accommodate 10 guests comfortably. The “Nest” is a rustic, secluded and private cabin at the top of the hill, at the end of the road, perched high on a cliff at 8,000 feet above sea level - a few hundred feet above the valley floor. Our guests enjoy endless unobstructed views of snowcapped peaks, the Continental Divide, a green valley with shimmering streams right below, and beautiful views of Lake Vallecito. The Little Valley has its own microclimate – an ever changing canvas of mesmerizing colors sights and sounds. Eagles Nest was professionally redesigned and redone by its owners. We like to call it “Neo Rustic”. The exterior look was transformed by an artisan, a Hollywood western movies set designer into a 200 year old cabin in the mountains, giving it a very unique frontier look and feel. Inside, it affords new furnishings, art work, and a modern kitchen which consists of new appliances, a coffee and espresso bar, and gas fired BBQ grill, plus state of the art audio visual system, a movie library, games for young and adults, a horse shoe game set, Wi-Fi, local phone service and Satellite TV as well as Netflix. A full size washer and dryer is available as well. A good part of your time will be spent under the gazebo on the large gated deck- nature or star gazing. All photos in the display were taken from the deck or on the premises without enhancements. Some say even the pictures don't do it justice. At night, the dark skies hang so low, millions of stars hover above the roof top. It seems one could reach up and pluck one right off its heavenly seat. The countless acres of the Weminuche wilderness and the San Juan national park share a common border with the property – just walk up to the trail. Vallecito offers entertainment and fun for all ages - adults, the young, and young at heart - fun activities such as cycling, horseback riding, boating (the marina is located a short distance from the cabin) hiking, ATV and four wheeling, fly fishing and hunting just to name a few. The shoreline is dotted with some lovely restaurants at waters edge. Durango with all that it has to offer is just 25 miles away. Come on up and stop chasing....... escape the mundane, the hustle, the summer heat, smog, noise and pollution. Give your body and soul an Eagles Nest rest.
