Welcome to Rio Angels private estate! Relax to the roar of the beautiful Animas River right off the many decks of this fabulous 2 bedroom, 2 bath house. Soaring ceilings and expansive 2-story windows face the river where you’ll enjoy 1600 feet of your own private fishing, rafting or swimming paradise. This extraordinary riverfront property is located just 3 miles from downtown Durango, yet you will feel like you’re truly on a country vacation, surrounded by huge trees, abundant wildlife, and spectacular mountains.

Fish from your own private nature trail alongside the river with its white sandy beaches and huge boulders. Share a meal with loved ones at the riverside picnic area. Relax in the hammock, play horseshoes, or drive golf balls on the lawn during the day...enjoy the warmth of the fire from the outdoor fire pit overlooking the river, and marvel at the starry night beneath the magnificent firs and cottonwoods.

This fabulous house sleeps 4 - 6, with two master bedrooms, one down and one upstairs. Each bedroom sleeps two in grand comfort and features a seating area, its own full bath, and opens on to a furnished deck from where you can enjoy the river breezes and cool mountain air.

There is also a sleeper sofa in the large 2-story living area to accommodate up to 6 guests. The fully furnished kitchen and dining area open to the wooded back yard and also look out onto the beautiful river. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer, big screen TV with satellite, and hi speed wireless internet.

This open, high-ceilinged aerie has been recently remodeled for the perfect vacation hideaway. We promise you will want to come back again and again to enjoy the charms of living on the river in the woods while being so close to shopping, skiing and hiking the beautiful Durango area.

This great property is available year round, so plan now to host your own winter hunting group or that guys’ fishing vacation!

A charming 3 bedroom 3 bath home on the property is also available for rent and sleeps 6 - 8. It features the same luxurious standards, and all the extras like a riverside seating area, outdoor firepit, wood burning stove and much more. It stands just far enough away for privacy, yet the two houses together are perfect for two families or groups sharing a vacation.

With its beautiful acreage on the Animas River and two luxurious houses, this private estate is also perfect for weddings, retreats, corporate gatherings, family reunions, etc. Catering and event planning is available locally to fit all your needs.
