Carter's Cabin is a uniquely wonderful cabin offering a cozy and comfortable getaway nestled in a serene and private wooded estate on the Animas River where you can enjoy the prolific wildlife where rarely has a day gone by without deer wandering through the yard or the foxes coming out to play! With approximately 1200 sq ft of space, a living/dining area large enough to seat up to 10 if needed for small business meetings, or family gatherings, full kitchen, and a bedroom loft that is uniquely appropriate for a businessman who wants more than a hotel room, small family getaways, or friends gatherings.
In the winter, the woodstove can provide a warm focal point on a cold evening. In the summer, a porch in front or back will provide fresh air and cool breezes and a view of the beautifully manicured grounds. Feed the huge catfish in the pond. Sorry no fishing in the pond, but you can fish in the river. A gas grill allows for relaxing outdoor dining. Onsite amenities include tennis court, volleyball area, golfing area, fishing and a very private biking, walking, or jogging paths and stables are available for your horse. And the best part is it is located only 6 blocks from the Animas Valley mall!
This home is equipped with a washer/dryer so you need not pack a lot of clothes for an extended stay. In addition to the King bed in the loft there is a pull-out sofa bed in the downstairs living area. For your indoor entertainment, there is a flat TV along with a Blu-Ray DVD player. Internet is available to keep up with what's going on in the outside world. Stables are available for rent. Daily maid service is available at an additional cost. This is a NON-Smoking home!

If you love the country you will love this beautiful estate! The wildlife is outstanding especially in the winter. Deer, turkey, foxes & pheasants are here nearly every day!
Privacy & tranquility are the prime benefits!
Our family had a great time just exploring the property and the gorgeous views it offered. The cabin offers everything you need and more. This place was far better than we had imagined. The Owner was helpful and offered advice. The location was convenient to everything. Hope we can return soon. Loved it!
beautiful cabin by the river. Spent our anniversary here with a trip up to Durango during our full day here. Quiet and relatively secluded with all the amenities.
This is an easy 5-star. This cabin is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect place to stay while in Farmington. Thanks so much for having us!
Although located on the owners' property at the end of a city street very near shopping, we found the cabin to be quiet except for the wonderful sound of the nearby river and the pond just outside. The cabin was well-appointed and included a washer/dryer. The only drawback, and it was minor, is that the bathroom is located on the main floor & the bedroom is upstairs. A nightlight would have been nice; we just left a light on. The location was great for getting to the nearby attractions. We rafted the Animas River, visited the magnificent Mesa Verde National Park, and spent an afternoon at the horse races. This was the priciest but far and away the nicest of the places we stayed on our 6 week visit to the US southwest.
We were extremely impressed with this cabin. If you are looking for a cabin surrounded by nature, but still close to town, this is it. Absolutely no traffic noise, very quiet and peaceful. The only sound we heard were Canadian geese coming in for a landing mid-morning. We also saw deer, pheasants and mourning doves in the backyard. This is an artist's and photographer's dream as the Animas River is just a short walk from the cabin. The morning sunlight shadows are just phenomenal. The cabin itself was beautiful and provided every convenience necessary. The cabin has a fireplace and firewood is provided. The owner was very friendly and helpful and was very respectful of our privacy. We would stay here again without any hesitation if we are ever in this area. By the way, we recommend visiting the Aztec Ruins and Shiprock while you are in the area.
We really enjoyed the wildlife. Deer were near the cabin when we arrived and we saw wildlife every day; including turkey and a pheasant. The cabin is very nicely furnished and it is hard to believe it is so close to town but there are no noises from town. The sound of the river is nice. It was really convenient to get to anything in the town and it was an easy day trip to Chaco Canyon. It was a very relaxing stay for us.
Only six blocks from the mall but this rural setting is so private and secluded it's like you are miles from town.
