Private Homes cabin description
Rio Cabana. . . in a word, CHARMING. The beautiful mountain cabin sits on 2 acres just 15 minutes outside of downtown Durango.
Just 30 feet outside the front door is the Florida River with excellent fishing. Cutbow trout, Rainbow trout, and German browns are all abundant in the cool waters.
Try your hand at fly fishing at more than 450 feet of river frontage. Catch and release only! Or, let the kids catch a trout in the stocked pond in the front yard.
Recently remodeled, the cabin sleeps five comfortably. The master is furnished with a queen sized bed. In the living area, there is a twin sized bed, and a queen futon. One full bathroom. Linens/dishes included.
Full kitchen, with stove, oven, refrigerator, and microwave.
High-speed internet, TV, DVD player, gas BBQ grill.
Pull up a chair on the porch and spend a lazy afternoon, or check out all that Durango has to offer.

Buddy, my Border Collie, and I had a great time! This reminded me of my fun times as a youngster during summers in Ruidoso, New Mexico. Everything was as advertised. It would be rustic for modern day couples but I found it very comfortable. Never did get TV reception but Hey! Who needs Fox news every day? River was low but made for great fishing and easy wading. Bottom line -- I shall return!!! William

We loved the location and will be going back. It was very private and right on the water. The cabin is rustic and does not have any frills but that is just what we were looking for our vacation. The pictures are accurate and the bathroom and kitchen were super clean. We didn't fish this time but plan on fishing for the next trip.

Well, you were right, we loved your cabin!! It was exactly what we were looking for and needed. We did leave the fish alone...instead, rented a jeep in Silverton and explored the Forest Service roads in the mountains between Silverton and Ouray. Gorgeous colors and old mines to explore...perfect day!! Having wi-fi in the cabin, we were able to stream a movie to the iPad (RIP, SJ) that evening. Rested up, we headed out to Mesa Verde the next morning. There are just no words to describe the mystery and beauty of it, but had you not had the magazine in the cabin advertising it, we would have totally missed it!! Cabin had everything we needed, plus!! Awesome, beautiful, peaceful setting. Dennis DID want to see a black bear, tho, and fortunately for me, that didn't happen!! ?????

This cabin was everything advertised and more. It was clean and had all the amenities needed. Very private and easy access to Durango and surrounding area. Management was easy to work with and very responsive. Can't wait to come back and spend more time. I would highly recommend Rio Cabana to anyone looking for a reasonably priced private little getaway.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It's located just outside Durango on the Florida River- great for fishing while dinner is on the grill. Nice updated bathroom and well stocked kitchen.We will be back next year for more 'rustic' fun.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Rio Cabana. The cabin is private & rustic yet convenient to downtown Durango. Our kids loved fishing in the pond and the close proximity to the river was peaceful & made for great photos!

My wife and I really enjoyed our time at this private river cabin. The cabin was rustic, but yet very nice. It is clear that the owner takes great pride in this property. We would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a private get-a-way in the mountains.

The Rio Cabana is PERFECT! If you're looking for a rustic cabin with charm, this is it. Quite, private, relaxing, and close to all that Durango has to offer. It was exactly what we were looking for; our three-night stay was absolutely amazing. Enjoy!

My husband went to school in Durango and being back in that area was like a homecoming for him. There is no place like SW Colorado. I would recommend this trip to anyone -- and the cabin was hard to leave. The privacy and quiet location by the river was the perfect get-away that two very busy people really needed.
