Locked away in the beautiful whispering pines just below the dam sits a secluded cabin with a great wrap-around deck along with an area below for a fire (when permitted). River fishing down the road about a mile. Rustic loving place. There is one bedroom upstairs and one downstairs with a queen upstairs and a double with a twin bunk bed downstairs. One bathroom with a cute breakfast nook overlooking the quiet serenity of the beautiful Coloardo mountains.

What makes this Cabin unique
There’s never a dull moment when you visit Southern Colorado! You can dine at the four local restaurants, most of which are in walking distance. Depending on season, rent a boat at the marina or ATV/snowmobile at the base of Middle Mountain road. There are trails and fishing galore as well as hunting and exploring. In the winter there is cross-country skiing and ice-fishing. These are a few of the endless activities Lake Vallecito has to offer. There are many other attractions in the Southern Colorado area. Just a few ideas to explore are Four Corners Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, Historical Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad, The Million Dollar Highway, Purgatory Ski Resort, Wolf Creek Ski Area, Pagosa Hot Springs, The Bar D Chuckwagon and so much more.

Very clean and nicely decorated.
The only drawback was that the master bedroom was in the loft, so anyone who needed to use the bathroom in the middle of the night had to go down a spiral staircase. Fortunately, there was a smaller bedroom right across the hall from the bathroom. We really enjoyed the home and would opt to stay there again.
Thank you for your review and for staying with us. We appreciate your note you left. We definitely hope to see you guys back again in the future!
A great place to stay, very clean, and had everything we needed! The lake was wonderful! We had a blast
Thank you for your review! Hope you guys can visit us again soon!
Great family getaway
Enjoyed our family time at this cabin. The community is very quiet, and the cabin is on a beautiful wooded lot. Our kids enjoyed exploring the space around the cabin, and the swing. The cabin is small, but cozy. Everything was very clean. We would definitely return again if visiting Durango area.
Sylvia! Thank you for your review on our Deer Trail Vacation Home! We are thrilled that you family enjoyed your stay! We hope to see you back soon!
Wonderful little cabin!
We really enjoyed our stay in Bayfield! The cabin has a great location to be able to go site seeing across many locations in Southwest Colorado. Perfect for a family of 4!
Thank you for your review Dana. We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you back soon!
Quiet, quaint, all you need.
Went here as a last minute getaway with my husband and 2 kids aged 6 and 4. Quaint place with all you need. Great natural lighting and ample back deck with a grill. We simply hung out, relaxed, went to Durango, Silverton, Purgatory, and Mesa Verde. Great memories were made.
Bath downstairs from adult bed. A frame caused head knocks.
Nice views from the back but living room very small with spiral staircase in the middle of it. Hit our heads climbing up to bed due to the slopes from it being an A Frame. If you needed the bathroom at night you had to watch your head going to and down the staircase and down stairs to use the bath. The home was clean and stocked well. Did not like travelling another 5 miles around the lake to get the key after a long drive, when there was one actually right on the front porch in the lock box.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry that we did not notify you of the lock box prior to your arrival to save you the trip. We had gotten away from using this method due to the number of guest coming up to the office anyways and us taking them down there. We will start offering this as an option again.
This vacation home definately has it's own unique charm that we try to capture in pictures. We apologize for any and all head bumps on the A-Frame roof.
All-in-all we hope you enjoyed your stay in Vallecito!
The Deer Trail is located in the near Weminuche wilderness area surrounded by tall pine trees with Lake Vallecito 1/2 mile away. We have numerous wildlife walking through our property.
