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.

Everything on our list!
Everything on our list!
My sister and I travel with our parents every summer. This year was Dad's turn to pick. He picked Ouray, but this 'home' was the closest thing I could find that had everything on our list! And, boy, were we glad we found this gem! We're all old, so we need a one-story, three bedroom, walk-in shower; and wanted satellite tv, wi-fi, outdoor grill, hot tub, and lots of deck. BUT we want it secluded with beautiful scenery. We don't ask much, do we? We had not only all the above, but lots of room, too. This home has lots of open space and lots of windows; the deck goes around the house, so there's always sun or shade, whichever you're in the mood for, some is covered and some not - something for everyone! And enough deck furniture for everyone, also! Kimberley, the manager, is very pleasant and easy to work with. But we didn't get to see a bear...

The Sh"pruce Mesa Cabin is a genuine oasis ..!
Roughlyy my "dozenth" trip to the Durango/San Juan area for summer activities and R & R. The Spruce Mesa Mountain Cabin is a genuine oasis and located perfectly for the best activities. Hiking and Mountain Biking: On Lime Creek, make sure to go roughly 1 mile past Spud Lake for some breathtaking views of Lime Creek and surrounds. Downtown Durango: ...Don't miss the Strater Hotel Bar and the old player piano... Feels as though Wild Bill could walk in at anytime. Can't wait for lucky summer trip in 2013.

We could not have picked a better time to come....
This was our first trip to Durango. We could not have picked a better time to come since it was 110 degrees in Arizona. Thank you for allowing us to stay here. The sights to look at were breathtaking. We really relaxed and enjoyed our stay. We hope to be back!

Better than home
Better than home
A beautiful home - gorgeous decor - incredible home site, quite private, with panoramic views of mountains through forest - from the decks and from most rooms. The furniture is comfortable, especially the sofas and beds. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. A great retreat for one or two couples. Not too far from Durango. I Wish it were mine.

We spent two weeks at Spruce Mesa Cabin. For the record this is a house. It exceeded our expectations on every level. Kimberly was helpful and accomodating even providing a dog kennel. The furnishings were lovely, the kitchen well stocked, the house spacious, the wrap around porch perfect and lastly, the beds extremely comfortable. We were concerned we would tire of the drive into Durango...we did not. Not only was it a beautiful drive but because the house is situated north of town we're close to everything important to us! Also, because we love to hike we were literally minutes from trails with spectacular views, Purgatory Flats is but one. Our trip to Durango was absolutely one of our best vacations and I believe the tone was set when we opened the door at Spruce Mesa Cabin! Thank you for sharing your magical home with our family. Oh, and the Sow's Ear was a great place to eat!
