Durango West house description

We call our beautiful Colorado mountain home 'Tatanka Lodge.' It is nestled among tall ponderosa pines on 35 private acres with a big wrap-around deck and views of the La Plata peaks. It is just10 mins. west from downtown Durango, 35mins. from Mesa Verde National Park and about 40 mins. from 'Purgatory' ski area. The main and upper floors are available for rental with private entrance from the deck.

The home is artfully decorated in mostly Southwestern decor. Living room focal points are a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a log sofa with water buffalo hide cushions. The dining room has an heirloom French Provincial dining set. Master bedroom/bath is on the main floor with kitchen, dining room, and living room; two big bedrooms upstairs with full bath and walk-in closets. Total beds: 2 Queens, 1 King, 1 Bunk so it sleeps up to 8 with extra floor mats available for kids. There is wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the house, dishwasher, W/D, TV/DVD, plentiful bed, bath linens & kitchenware. Also BBQ grill and picnic set on the deck.

Relax on the deck to view the stars, the surrounding hills and La Plata peaks. Take an after dinner walk down the hill to a sweet little meadow and easy trails. For more vigorous adventures hike the miles of mountain trails in national forest lands, go for a horse ride at one of the stables, raft the Animas River, ski Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory), take the Narrow Gauge Railway to Silverton or stroll down Main St. with its art galleries, clothing stores and various ethnic restaurants. Whether you take it slow or ride 'em cowboy there's always something to delight you in Durango.

SPECIAL NOTE:
* A ground floor apartment (with it's own entrance thru the garage) is occupied by quiet year round tenant. Guests occupy the main 2 floors of the lodge with the main entry and wrap-around deck.
* NO SMOKING: SECURITY DEPOSIT FORFEITED IF SMELL OF SMOKE IN LODGE OR BUTTS FOUND on property.
