City of Durango Permit #08-060
Named for the Patron Saint of animals and the environment, we welcome you to the Saint Francis House in the heart of Downtown Durango. This historic house is decorated in a fresh authentic style celebrating the natural world. Truly green, the house is powered by a 2KW Solar electric system. Amazing location with restaurants, grocery, trails, downtown all within easy walking distance. Pamper yourself in the beauty and quality of this house.

A sublime place to stay with a full gourmet kitchen and two bedrooms this house is uber-comfortable. The bedrooms have four poster beds with new high-end mattresses, fine linens and down comforters. Gorgeous new marble, glass and tile bathroom with a ceiling heater for deliciously warm showers. Lots of quality towels, and a hair dryer provided. Pet and kid friendly with a front porch surrounded by a securely fenced yard. Front loading Washer/Dryer with supplies provided including an iron. The kitchen is complete with quality pans, real knives, blender, antique dishes and real silver ware, lots of handy kitchen tools... worthy of Thanksgiving Dinner or relaxed BBQ meals for the family.

There is a large flat screen TV, BlueRay DVD player, and Wi-Fi provided. Also a small library of books and DVD's. Space enough in either room for a small office set up.

Only two blocks from the The Horse Gulch Trail System which offers world class mountain biking and hiking trails... a great place to hike dogs. Durango Natural Foods Grocery is right across the street as well as several other breakfast, lunch and coffee shops. The short walk to downtown is along 6th street which is full of eclectic shops and restaurants. Close enough to walk to the train station, or up to the college. With a location like this, the car is optional, but if you have one there is an off street parking spot just steps away from the front door.

All the Best,

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have lived in Durango for over 18 years and can help you plan a wonderful vacation for your family. Concierge services included!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Downtown:
The location is very much downtown with three breakfast places within a block, and the local food co-op grocery store right across the street. If you don't want to drive and you want a house instead of a condo, this is your place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unique decor, and a real house with character. This is a super comfortable house with all the trappings. We have paid much attention to the details: super nice beds and linens, hand made soap, La Creuset pans, Weber Grill, original Art. We have really had fun making this place special.
