Casa Durango is a charming 3 bedroom 1 bath 1300 sq ft home located on Durango's northwest grid. Our home was originally built in 1896 and was recently updated to include a new kitchen, bathroom, interior paint and furnishings. It still has that vintage feeling but has all the modern amenities. Our home, like most homes in Durango, does not have AC, but the temperature is easily manageable.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and utensils and the dining table comfortably seats four and does have an additional leaf to seat a few more. The living room has a L-shaped couch, large ottoman, a Samsung 40" tv with DirecTV and high speed WiFi.
Two bedrooms have new comfortable queen beds and the third bedroom has a new twin daybed with trundle mattress and all have high quality linens and pillows. The third bedroom also has a large beanbag, 36" Flat screen TV with DirecT & Roku and many shelves containing games and puzzles. The backyard is fenced and there is a new gas BBQ on the deck. During the summer there is a outdoor dining set on the deck which seats six people.
Our house is dog friendly. The garden is fairly well fenced but not secure enough to contain a pup who really wants to explore the neighborhood.
Walk, hop on one of our cruisers (5 available) or take the Durango Trolly which stops 1 block from the house into the historic downtown district for dinner, shopping, bars or to just wander around.
There are so many great outdoor activities in and around the Durango area: Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Rail Road, Mesa Verde National Park, Durango Mountain Resort, Sky Ute Casino, Telluride, Gold Medal fly fishing, Animas River, horse back riding, golf, skiing, Jeep tours, rafting, hunting, kayaking, historic district, shopping, world class mountain and road biking, scenic tours and motorcycle touring.
The Animas River is only a three minute walk from the house. If you choose to walk downtown, the swing bridge over the Animas River is only blocks away as is the bike path. Historic downtown Durango is less than a mile from the house and an easy walk.
Wake up to the whistle of Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train and we hope you enjoy your stay at our home.
