Private Homes house description
Welcome to your home away from home in Durango, Colorado!! Get ready to get cozy and relax!
Located just 8 minutes from historic Main Street and downtown Durango, this spacious, modern and comfortable home has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and an open, casual, western feel.
Upstairs are the Master with en suite bath and two additional bedrooms and bath. The Main floor includes a modern, fully-equipped kitchen with great 'gather around' bar counter that is open to the dining room and the vaulted great room with its comfortable furniture for lounging around the large stone fireplace. Western facing windows bring in lots of natural light and an inspiring western view. An adjacent den offers a television (42' LCD and DVD) and desk - for a place to work if you must. Doors off the dining and great rooms lead to a large redwood deck offering outside dining, a BBQ grill, and stunning sunsets. The lower level has a fourth bedroom, full bath, reading/lounging area, and access to a large, secluded hot tub and the landscaped backyard. The package is complete with WIRELESS INTERNET.
BEDROOMS: The Master bedroom and a second upstairs bedroom each have a queen bed, as does the downstairs bedroom. The additional upstairs bedroom provides a double bed.
Durango, Colorado, is one of the finest recreational playgrounds in the country. Fabulous alpine skiing awaits you at Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory), only 30 minutes away, and there are many other wintertime activities such as cross country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, etc.
If you can drag yourself away from this cozy retreat, here are some other getaway ideas:
Weminuche and Lizard Head Wilderness areas, Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, Moab, Pagosa Hot Springs, the NM pueblos (Zuni and Acoma), Silverton and Ouray ('Little Switzerland'), Santa Fe, Telluride (with all its Summer music, wine and art festivals), world class skiing at Wolf Creek, hiking, mountain biking, river rafting, golf, fly fishing (Animas and San Juan rivers - get your license at Duranglers, on Main Street).
Closer to your retreat is downtown (8 minutes away) where you'll enjoy terrific restaurants (Durango is said to have more restaurants per capita than San Francisco), bars, galleries, and shopping. And for a local 'must do', ride the world famous Durango Silverton Railroad. And if you're truly a jock, challenge this steam powered vintage train to a race by biking the Ironhorse Bicycle Classic during Memorial Day weekend.
Durango also has a terrific new public library located downtown on the Animas River!
This custom luxury home is located in a quiet cul de sac on the east edge of town with friendly neighbors (like EVERYONE in Durango).

ReviewsWrite a review
Our group of seven rented this home for 5 nights in August. We found the house a perfect retreat from the busy days of hiking, mountain biking and kayaking. It is a short/easy drive from town and in a very quiet/relaxing neighborhood. The house is well laid out so that the group can easily hang out in the main area, or retreat to the bedrooms/basement if wanting some solitude. Peter was delightful to deal with, and we would not hesitate to rent this home again if we are in the area.

Our family rented this property for 5 nights in early July. We found the property most wonderful. Our host, Peter, was very professional in all dealings, and the property was clean, well maintained, and very nice. The house has great separation of space so that our large group could spread out and enjoy ourselves in our own ways. We enjoyed the hot tub and the well appointed kitchen. If we came back to Durango as a large group again, we would definitely want to stay here.
