Vallecito Lake house description

This creekside property includes a three bedroom, two bath home AND a one bedroom, one bath cottage. You pick - just the 3 bedroom home OR the home and the cottage.

If you choose both you’ll also have two kitchens. Both units are fully equipped and ready for you to move in.

Perfect for your family get away. You'll enjoy all the comforts of home while experiencing the views, wildlife, lake and local activities. A number of small critters frequent the area, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks and lots of birds. An occasional larger species may be seen - deer, elk and possibly a bear.

Vallecito is a Hispanic word meaning Little Valley and is pronounced vi-yeh-SEE-toe. Vallecito Lake is the nearest resort area to Durango, Colorado. The 24 mile drive to Durango is over scenic paved county roads. All this is located in Southwestern Colorado - a premier vacation destination.

There are a number of activities and sites to keep you busy here in the valley. And after a short drive there is even more to do - you can fly fish for trophy trout on the renowned San Juan river, experience a raging trip down the Animas river, ride the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad, explore the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park – the possibilities are endless! Of course you could just kick back and indulge your senses in the cool mountain air. Recline on the deck, relax in a lawn chair, sit under the trees beside an evening campfire, and listen to the water bubbling in the creek.
