                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We love the mountains, rivers, mesas, and canyons of Southwest Colorado and its surrounding areas and enjoy hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, skiing, reading by the fireplace, or relaxing in Downtown Durango depending on the season. We are part-time Durango residents who are pleased to share our home with family, friends, and visitors at every opportunity. Erin works as a physician on the Navajo Reservation in northern New Mexico and Jeff works nationwide helping nonprofits raise money to support their work. If you have questions about our home or the area, please call or email.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We immediately fell in love with our home - its warmth and design, the views of the La Plata mountains and the valley below, and the abundant wildlife in our backyard. Meadow View Lodge offers true seclusion just minutes from the heart of Durango and easy driving distance to skiing and hiking, national parks, and picturesque mountain towns.
