Stay where you can see the stars every night!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Beautiful vacation rental, just outside of historic downtown Durango. It was perfect for us since we didn't want to stay in town with all the busy weekend commotion. Lot's of spacious country style privacy, all the amenities you could want in a completely modern 2 story cabin. We made use of the laundry facilities down stairs as we were at the halfway point of our road trip and needed some serious freshening up! This rental was the ONLY place on our trip which had the proper bathroom lighting for the purposes of applying makeup! The shower was enormous with a smooth pebbled floor which massaged my feet every morning. Owner was very friendly and had even decorated the rental for Christmas which was a wonderful touch considering we were traveling over the holidays and we were missing that special holiday atmosphere. If we are ever in the area again, we would totally love to stay here again!

Fantastic time near Durango, Colorado.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! How can I tell you what an incredible time we had with Kathy and Shelby at their "cabin" in the sky the last week of August, 2016. Not only do they have a fantastic trout stream running through the back yard, but they have roomie and comfortable accommodations in their cabin. One word of caution: If you can not negotiate stairs, don't go, but if you can, this is the place for you.

Their cabin includes all the essentials and more to enjoy a week in the Durango area. We discovered two routes from their facilities to Durango that either supplied us the necessities of Walmart and Home Depot (south) or the bypass of Durango central to head north to Silverton and beyond.

Our hosts Kathy and Shelby could not have been more accommodating. Their wonderful super-dog, Lady Sadie, greeted us from time to time, and made us feel even more welcome to their home in Durango. The cabin consists of a super comfortable queen-sized bed room, fantastic kitchen, lovely upstairs balcony, huge family room with TV, comfortable dining area and the most delicious outdoor fireplace and BBQ unit you can imagine. Many nights were spent in front of a roaring fire in the fireplace, solving all of the earth's problems.

We can not recommend this accommodation and these folks more. Book it and enjoy your time. Mike and Patty - Stan Antonio, TX

Great place for an Anniversary Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent four wonderful nights in this warm and inviting vacation escape. We loved the Durango area and all it had to offer, but we were glad to return every evening to our home-away-from home. Although we didn't do any cooking, everything we would have needed was there. We fully utilized the wonderful washer and dryer and the bathroom was just the best. The owners sent us area information prior to our arrival and shared favorite places to visit and dine once we go there. Our dining favorites were Carver Brewing Co (for breakfast, lunch or dinner) and we celebrated our anniversary at Ken & Sue's. Mesa Verde Nat'l Park and the Durango to Silverton Train are a must. Kathy & Shelby are excellent to work with and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit we had with their wonderful dog Sadie. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return here again and stay even longer. The only other thing I would mention about this property is that since the living area is on the 2nd level, it might not be suitable for a person who has difficulty climbing stairs even though there is a very secure handrail.

September 2015 family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Pros: We have 2 young children and decided to take them fishing, see the fall leaves start to change, and see the mountains. We could not have found a better place. Kathy's cabin is well built, comes stocked with essentials (cooking supplies, bathroom supplies, great washer and dryer, etc.) unlike many other vrbo places we've stayed. She lives just down the road and is available if you need anything as well. The place however is very private. The Florida river is just a 5 min walk away and the outdoor fireplace is a great way to spend evenings with smores or hot dogs. There is easy access fishing in Durango with the Animas river and drives up to Silverton and Mesa Verde are a must.

Cons: not many...There is a pretty large stair case to get up to the living area and with young kids requires you to be diligent about keeping it blocked with a small cabinet. The road to get out to the cabin is about a 15 minute drive but take heed of the deer signs as we nearly hit 2 (required slamming on the brakes each time). This is a problem about any where's you go however in southwest Colorado. It's a one bed room one bath cabin but the living room couch folds out and there is a queen air mattress. Durango shuts down early and we found that while many nearby attractions say they are open on their websites, many close for "the season." It's best to call regardless...

Overall, we would go back without question.

Privacy Plus

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 11 nights in paradise. We sold our vacation home two years ago, further up the Florida River and this wonderful home and setting really made us feel at home. Thank you Kathy and Shelby for sharing your property. It is in the middle of some of the best hiking and jeeping you can find, yet close enough to hop in the car and have lunch in Durango within ten minutes. The custom home was built with 1st class materials and is in great condition. We certainly hope to return again.
