Private Homes, Downtown house description

This charming, fully furnished home was built in 1908. It is comfortable and relaxing, and the Historic District location could not be more perfect as it is within walking distance to everything downtown Durango has to offer. This non-smoking rental is ideal for one or two couples or even a small family at 800 square feet . The living room is large and cozy with a brand new comfy couch, CD/MP3 player, flat screen TV and DVD. The master bedroom is spacious with a queen size bed, dressers, and walk-in closet.

The bathroom is well-appointed and up to date after a complete renovation. The kitchen is equipped with cooking, dining and table accessories. There is a futon in the sleeping porch that converts to a very comfortable double bed. Walk outside to the stone patio where you can BBQ on the grill or relax with a cup of coffee on the patio furniture. A tall fence offers additional privacy for you to enjoy the solitude and mountain-view. Off-street and on-street parking are available.

Durango is known for outdoor activities and is also home to many fine restaurants. No matter what time of year you are able to visit, you will want to stay longer and return often!

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About: My husband and I grew up in the Mid-West, but we love the mountains and have been visiting Colorado together regularly since 1985. As parents of three very active children, Durango has provided our family with a great escape from our busy daily lives, and the opportunity to re-focus on what is important.

              Why Private Homes, Downtown:
              After MANY years of looking in and around the Durango area, we finally chose to buy a home downtown because of it's proximity to everything in the community. We have spent time vacationing at both Durango Mountain Resort and at Vallecito Lake. Both locations are attractive destinations, and downtown Durango gives us convenient access to each as well as giving us the added benefit of being part of a very relaxed and connected downtown community. We continue to enjoy giving this experience to our children. It is possible to walk to nearly everything, and we have left the car parked for days during our visits. Added bonus, we are able to eat whatever we want and never gain those dreaded vacation pounds! That's a plus, because of the many fine dining opportunities in town.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We continue to enjoy the tall ceilings, the charm, and the history of our place. We have worked hard to stay true to it's architectural heritage when we have made improvements. As an added note, while we have developed many fond memories in the Durango area, we have also come up with a list of our favorite coffee shops, restaurants, and destinations. If you are interested in suggestions we will be happy to share that list. Congratulations on your decision to visit Durango. You are in for a treat!
