Property description

City of Durango Permit #08-060
Bucking Mule Guest House is a clean modern 500 sf. studio located in Durango Colorado. Only six blocks from Downtown Durango, and one block from the Horse Gulch trail system, our guesthouse is in the perfect location if you like to walk or bike around town. Our guesthouse has an 800 sf. private courtyard with patio furnishings, BBQ, and beautiful outdoor eating table. Securely fenced it is ideal for pets and children. Fully landscaped and very private. There is also a locked shed for bike storage available for your use.

The guest house has a Japanese soaking tub with custom spa 'bath room'; walk-in travertine shower. In the Japanese bath tradition, the toilet room is separate from the bath room. There are bath sheets and robes provided.

Stained concrete floors have in-floor heat for cozy winter comfort . Contemporary design with a western flair, we call our decorating style zen cowboy. There is a super comfortable Tempurpedic style bed complete with Ralph Lauren linens and a down comforter. Also, in the same room, is a very comfortable queen sized leather pull out couch.

Durango Natural Foods, our local natural foods store is just across the street. Walk to breakfast at College Drive Cafe (the best breakfast in town) or Durango Joes coffee house, both located within a block of our guest house. Home Slice Pizza, Raider Ridge Cafe, CJ's Diner and 8th Ave Tavern are all within a block or two.

This is a green built studio with a Solar electric power system. Feel good about staying here and reducing your carbon footprint while relaxing.

Flat screen TV with DVD and free WiFi making it ideal for business travelers. Pets and children are welcome.

The guest house is located next to the best trail system in Durango: Horse Gulch Trails. If you hike or bike you will be in Georgia O'Keefe heaven.
