Rincon Ridge chalet description

Rincon Lodge is located just east of historic Durango, Colorado where you can enjoy countless seasonal activities such as golfing, horseback riding, river rafting, shopping, dining, and world-class hunting & fishing. Also nearby are Mesa Verde National Park, the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad, two ski areas (Durango Mountain Resort and Wolf Creek Ski Area), and natural healing hot spring spas.

Built in 1995-1996, the lodge itself is a magnificent 6,500 square foot custom log home with expansive wrap-around decks offering views of the majestic La Plata Mountains, the Florida Mesa, and abundant wildlife. Open floor plans, cathedral ceilings, and soaring windows provide views of deer, elk, and wild turkey seen almost daily year-round. Inside the lodge, seven bedrooms will accommodate 20 guests with room for more upon request.

The main floor has two full-size sofas as well as additional seating for comfortable relaxation and is situated around a floor to ceiling woodburning river rock fireplace with satellite television and a DVD/VCR. Several entryways provide access to covered decks with panoramic views. Private bedrooms include shared full baths and another half bath with shower just around the corner. The dining area and kitchen on the main floor feature a teak dining table easily seating ten people with additional leafs for expansion. A massive elk antler chandelier adorns the area.

The custom kitchen and center island features solid granite countertops, a six burner gas range, double ovens, and everything else even the most discerning gourmet cook will appreciate. The center island provides casual seating. The mudroom offers a full-size washer and dryer, a full upright freezer, and a large open pantry.

The lower living area also has a full-size sofa and chair seating around a second river rock fireplace and a big screen satellite television with DVD/VCR. It hosts four private bedrooms including a kids 'dorm room' with a bassinet and one shared full bath. Two entryways provide access to covered patios.

Take the log staircase to the upper level and you will find the master suite complete with a rustic aspen log frame king-size bed and two private decks with views that will take your breath away. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, double vanity, and a spacious walk-in closet that includes an extra sleeping area with futon, a ping pong table, or a secluded place to just be alone with your thoughts and relax.

Accommodations total two king-size beds, two queen-size beds, one full-size bed, four twin beds, one bunk bed, and two futon sleepers. Radiant in-floor heating is accented by oak hardwoods, carpet, slate, and saltillo tile.

In conjunction with the Lodge for larger parties, the guesthouse will sleep 4 comfortably. Situated as a studio apartment or 'mother-in-law' quarters above the 3 car garage, it offers the same stupendous views and peaceful settings as the Lodge, located approximately 60 yards directly north.

Located at 7487', the fully fenced 76 acres of ponderosa and juniper pine covered ground around the lodge offer endless nature trail hiking, snowshoeing, snow sledding, mountain biking, picnicking, barbecuing, horseshoes, and a ski run in the winter months to keep busy during your stay.

Complimentary wireless internet throughout the property.

RINCON LODGE has something for everyone! With its spaciousness, unmatched beauty and peaceful surroundings, it is an ideal vacation spot for weddings, family and school reunions, or executive corporate retreats. For more information, please contact us at 303-362-0964 or e-mail!

                            Our family recently gathered from 7 states and loved staying at this wonderful lodge. It was even nicer than we expected. The view from the wrap around porch was wonderful. The entire place is very well furnished. We have never stayed anywhere before with such a well equipped kitchen. There is a very nice pantry/utility room area which has lots of storage shelves and extra large kettles. We found the attached garage area and storage very handy also. We all agreed that this wonderful location was a real plus toward making this our best reunion yet. Louise Minden, Nebraska

                            We had a family reunion here and found the lodge gave us all space to be together and space to get away and be alone. The porch perhaps our favorite feature offers a wonderful place for dining or talking or just sitting and watching the sky. Its so large that the children can be playing at one end while the adults converse at the other. There are bedrooms and baths aplenty and the kitchen can accommodate a lot of cooks. We hope to go back. Wish it were just a little shorter drive into Durango, but thats the compromise you make for the space and views of the lodge. BigFamily Colorado Springs, CO

                            Dear Marty, Our family loved our time in Durango and found that Rincon Lodge was perfect for what we wanted. We have been renting a facility like this for annual reunions the past several years and likely will continue to do so. We especially loved the number of bedrooms, the porch, and the spaces where we might all gather at the table together. Durango has so many things to do that it provided different options so that our family enjoyed every day. Our favorite find in the Durango area was the Chimney Rock Archeological Site. Many thanks for maintaining such a nice place! Name Omitted by Request

                            We had 21 family members take this trip to Colorado from East and West Texas. Ages 4 to 83 with activity for all. Had a wonderful time in this magnificant home. The views, the spacious rooms, the amenities all were great. The only thing missing possibly would be a hot tub sitting out on one of the decks to sit in and watch the stars from. We are planning on making this an annual trip with additional family members going each year. Thanks to Scott for all of his help too. I would recommend Rincon Lodge to anyone. It is great. Rhonda S.

                            We stayed at the Rincon Lodge at Christmas time 2011. There were 20 members of my family there and we had a blast. This home is unbelieveably awesome. Lots of rooms beautiful, gorgeous peaceful location; very private. The owner and caretakers were wonderful and helped in any way that they were asked to help. They did not watch over your shoulders so to speak. All things were great and beautiful. I guess our greatest dislike of the area is not enough snow this season. We did go 2 weeks earlier than we usually go but there was not very much snow for our grandkids to play, of course, there was some snow but not as much as 2 years ago. I would most certainly rent this again if needed. You will not be disappointed. Becky Nogal, NM

                            Our group of 16 was very comfortable and satisfied with the home. We would use it again. The only problem was the landlord did not make arrangements with the weatherman to send more snow!!! ha ha The Jones Reunion Farmington, NM

                            Our fairly small group of eight had room to roam in the large, well furnished and outfitted lodge. Weather was beautiful except for the afternoon thunderstorms but we watched them moving across the valley and mountains the photog in our group loved them for all the lighting changes they provided. In short, everything was as advertised in the lodge and everything worked. Having a nearby caretaker to call on, if needed is a real plus. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises and highly recommend the property. LHearn Danville, CA

                            We had a fantastic family reunion at the lodge. The lodge was beautiful inside and out and accommodated our large group. The lodge was clean, well equipped and spacious. We enjoyed spending time out on the decks where the views were amazing. The children had fun playing upstairs and outside and the ping pong table also got plenty of use. The whole family was impressed and we will definitely recommend it to our friends and family. Noonen Family Reunion Albuquerque, New Mexico

                            Our group of 17 gathered for a family reunion and found the Rincon Lodge to be a perfect location for such an event. We enjoyed the lodge and its wonderful vistas, the river rafting trip we took was a blast, and the day trip we made to view Mesa Verde National Park was well worth it. The lodge was very comfortable for everyone and Marty, Kimberly and Scott were wonderful to answer any questions we had and to make suggestions of things to do. Our family would highly recommend it for any group who wants to gather together and relax in a gorgeous setting. Knittle Family Reunion Belfair, WA

                            We spent a wonderful week in the house in early June. The mornings were cool and the days warm, and we really enjoyed the change from the Texas summer. The house is quite large so there was plenty of room, and many of us enjoyed just hanging around while others preferred to be out and about doing many of the activities available in the Durango area. The house is perched on a ridgeline so there are great views in all directions. The property was in good shape, everything worked, and wed be up for a return visit. June visit Arlington, TX
