                            Had a very nice stay at your home, great views, loved the fireplace and big windows!! Great views...sunrises and sunsets. With two bakers/pastry chefs, we were very happy with the kitchen. Lots of cooking, the grill came in handy. The deer really do come close, very cool!!! Thank you

                            The location of this property is fabulous. The view is amazing and our walks/hikes around the large property were great (there is a lot of land around the house). The owner did a very nice job of explaining (in an e-mail) everything about the house before we arrived and the house itself had everything we could have needed (e.g., the kitchen was fully-stocked and had things like spices, oils for cooking, etc.). In addition, it's clean and nicely decorated and the view from the living area and the bedrooms can't be beaten. We would have loved to have stayed a few more days to spend more time exploring the land around the house. I think some in my party would have preferred their showers be a little warmer and that the central AC cool a little more consistently but can't say it really affected our stay.

                            Perfect house for a family gathering. Great kitchen and main room. Beautiful views and a feeling of being away from it all, but you can still get to Main St in about 15-20 min. I would stay here again for sure.

                            We had the pleasure to stay at Meadow View Lodge for 5 days in June. The wonderful views were as described. The house was clean and had the supplies we needed for our stay. Keith was very responsive to our questions and concerns. Our boys enjoyed the pool table, hot tub and hiking around the house. We enjoyed having space for them to run around. Unfortunately, our travel schedule didn't leave us much down time at the house. We are hoping for a return trip soon so we can enjoy the house more. We did not get to see any wildlife around the house - that was our only true disappointment. We had a wonderful vacation - we will definitely recommend the Meadow View Lodge to our friends and family looking for a great place to stay while in Durango.

                            Meadow View Lodge was a great choice for a vacation/get-to-gether with our adult children and their spouses this summer. There was ample room for all eight of us and something for everyone with an entertainment center, pool table, fast internet access and a hot tub. The house is well located to visit all the attractions in the southwest corner of Colorado that surround Durango proper. We hiked, drove jeep trails, visited Mesa Verde and found wonderful shopping and dining in town. At the end of each day, Meadowview Lodge provided quiet and privacy and, as promised, incredible views. The deck, the living room and the master bedroom all have fantastic mountain vistas - exactly what we came to Colorado for. As we are a family of cooks, we were especially impressed with the well stocked kitchen. Absolutely everything we needed for large family meals was to be found, including a grill and serving dishes. Keith was more like a host than an owner - he checked in, offered advice and made sure our visit came off without a hitch. We enjoyed our stay in this house immensely and will come back first chance we get.

                            What a beautiful home! We were fortunate to spend two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The views were breathtaking, really better than photos can convey. The house was comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything needed. The pool table and hot tub were both great perks. We enjoyed hikes around the house and saw wildlife every day. Great location - we were minutes from town, train, & airport. We also enjoyed Mesa Verde. The owner was attentive and helpful – lots of tips on what to do and where to dine. We’d love to stay again!

                            Our family of 6 stayed at the Meadow View Lodge for a week, and enjoyed every minute of it. The description of the house is absolutely accurate, and our high expectations have not been disappointed. The house looks just like it does on the pictures with tasteful interior, and the really stunning view! The owner will make sure that you have everything you need, and can be reached at any time. He really wants you to have a great time in his house. It also is the perfect location to explore the southwest of Colorado. Mesa Verde, Telluride etc. are all only one to two hours away. And Durango is a small but vibrating town with beautiful shops. I definitely would recommend the Meadow View lodge to friends and relatives.

                            Instead of giving gifts, each year my husband and I take our children on a vacation for Christmas. We have found that the memories bring more joy and last much longer than gifts. This December we went to Durango. Unfortunately, the snow did not cooperate and many of our activities had to be canceled. Fortunately, we stayed at the Meadow View Lodge. When we weren't checking out the local tourist attractions, we hiked around the property, relaxed in the hot tub, had a "pool" tournament, played games by the fire and enjoyed the beautiful views. Thank you Keith for these wonderful memories!

                            My family and I go to Durango every year for Halloween, and this year we had the good fortune of choosing the Meadow View Lodge to stay at. This was by far the best place we have stayed in Durango. Keith went out of his way to make sure that everything was perfect for our stay (and it was) and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We enjoyed hot tubbing under the stars and playing pool until the wee hours of the night. One of the best features of this house was the AMAZING VIEWS. The house is located on top of a hill and you can see for miles in every direction. The location of the house is great too, far enough outside of town to really feel like you are 'getting away from it all' but close enough to town to go shopping or go to dinner. We have been staying in Durango for many years, and generally we like to try out new places every year, but that all change after staying at the Meadow View Lodge... We have found our new vacation spot! Thank you Keith!

                            A special thank you again to Keith for our best lodging experience yet. The home is beautiful, the view is heavenly and the location is perfect. We also appreciate the special attention given to make sure our stay was comfortable. The first morning we were there, I went out with binoculars to watch for deer but found I didn't need them because the deer come right up by the house morning and evening! We spent many hours out on the deck but the view from inside the home with the large windows is just as wonderful. This truly is a dream home, Thank you Jean & Bill

                          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.
