Private Homes cabin description

This beautiful mountain retreat offers the best of the Rocky Mountains: Secluded in the San Juans with incredible views but minutes away from some of the best skiing, mountain biking, white water rafting, hiking, fly fishing, and golfing in the country!! You are in the heart of the mountains but only a 20 minute drive to downtown Durango and a 12 minute drive to Durango Mountain Ski/Summer Resort.

Over 2400 square feet, The Spruce Mtn Cabin is beautifully appointed with three bedrooms, two baths, as well as huge 'windows to the woods' in the great room and living room. The two living areas provide plenty of space for larger families. In winter roasting marshmallows in the cozy wood stove in the family room while you watch the snow falling is a wintertime treat. The new hot tub on the outside wrap around deck will keep you warm under a star lit evening, after skiing. The living room also offers a game table for family fun. The kids will be delighted that there is a small hill and plenty of room to make snowmen or do a little sledding in winter. The large dining area is great for family dinners.

Summers are magical on the large wrap around decks. BBQ fresh fish that you catch at beautiful Electra Lake (5 minute drive and no fishing license is required!) and enjoy dining with views of the mountains. By the way, Electra Lake offers a lovely rustic restaurant in an old boathouse where you can take your own bottle of wine and dine over the lake with views of the near 14,000 ft Engineer Peak. Dusk and dawn on the decks provide deer/elk viewing opportunties!! Since the home is on an acre but the two adjoining acres are not built upon, The Spruce Mtn Cabin offers a wooded summer and winter peacefulness that can't be beat.

A king bed in the master bedroom adjoins the spacious master bath with oversized jacuzzi tub, stall shower, double sinks, and walk-in closet. Open up the french doors to a comforting hot tub out on the deck! The second bedroom with a two twin beds can also provide a king bed option when we put them together. The third bedroom is great for the kids with a bunk with double bed on bottom and twin on top plus a trundle bed (two twins.)This bedroom shares a full bath with tub/shower facilities with the second bedroom. With a queen sofa bed in the living room plus a single sofa ottomon there is plenty of room for the family and friends. We even have a pak and play for your little one if needed.

A separate laundry room with washer and dryer leads to the attached garage.
While we only allow preapproved dog, we are happy to provide you with a crate that is required to secure the pooch when left in the home alone.


This home was built and furnished as a beautiful family home,not a rental. You will appreciate the difference. The Spruce Mtn Cabin offers the solitude, pristine beauty, and amenities that you desire in a mountain vacation home.

A 12 minute drive takes you to the winter playland of Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory Ski Area) where fantastic mountain scenery, superb alpine and Nordic skiing, as well as over 300 days of sunshine makes this one of best kept secrets in the ski world.

But there is plenty of fun for non-skiers and boarders such as tubing hills, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ice climbing, shopping, dining, dancing, and more. The summer offers a special beauty with wildflowers abloom,waterfalls, high mountain scenery and lots to do!! Try jeeping, hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, fishing, rodeos, summer concerts, wine tastings and more!

Durango, a charming historic western town, is home to the Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad. 'The Train' takes you up into a winter wonderland of incredible backcountry scenery. In the summer 'The Train' stops in the historic mining town of Silverton. This is a ride worth taking!!! Mesa Verde National Park is nearby or try soaking, massage and relaxation opportunties at natural hot springs that are just minutes away.
