Farmington Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Loft with king bed, queen hide-a-bed, 1 bath, sleeps 4

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!

Perfect, serene getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My significant other and I decided to take a last minute Labor Day trip, and Rose accommodated us even with less than a couple hour notice.

The property was exactly as described, if not better! We brought our mountain bikes to enjoy the vast trails, which begin right outside the front door of the cabin. We were able to ride to the Animas and fish from the private access to the river.

During our stay we were having issues with the Direct TV, but Rose took time out of her day to come over in person and resolve it.

Rose was very responsive and friendly. We will definitely be returning for future trips!

Great week end stay with the family.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over a weekend and had a great time. The kids loved the donkey and the pond with the fish. I had fun hitting some golf balls just out the back door and walking the trails.

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.

A Great Cabin, A Flowing River, & a Gorgeous Cabin

  • 4 of 5

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.
