Large wrap around deck completes the ambiance. The main level has a nice spacious living area, bathroom and kitchen. The 2 bedrooms are upstairs and there is additional sleeping in a futon in the living room area. The charm of this cabin is unmistakably genuine. Please feel free to call with any questions you may have regarding this unique property.

Bring your family to Colorado and experience a taste of the Old West. Built in 1898, the Puetz Saloon was frequented by the local townspeople. The patrons were a varied lot from miners to outlaws, gamblers and honest workmen; women did not enter unless they were a saloon girl or a 'shady lady'. Life in those days was difficult and the saloon keeper provided a place to 'let loose' or just socialize.

Today, all are welcome. Located in Hesperus, Colorado just 10 minutes from downtown Durango, relax on several acres while soaking up your own piece of history and enjoying the brilliance of the La Plata Mountains, the river, a creek and a pond. The Saloon has been lovingly restored by hands of a master craftsman, the owner's father. It is bursting with antiques and all the special comforts of home.

WINTER/SUMMER WONDERLAND: Only a couple of miles from 'Hesperus Ski Area' which offers night skiing until 9pm, 'La Plata Mountains' a mountain playground ideal for the outdoor enthusiast with miles of snowmobiling, skiing (back country/cross country), snowshoeing and dog sledding.

Summer time offers endless hiking and biking trails with spectacular views and scenery.
