Private Homes cottage description

This private, cozy cottage is nestled on a 19 acre parcel in the East Animas Valley, just a couple of miles north of the Durango city limits. You will enter the property through an electronic gate and continue on a 500 foot private road towards the Red Hermosa Cliffs. Beyond the cliffs is nothing but picturesque forest service land for hundreds of miles. On the property there is a private, covered tennis court for your personal use and high speed internet!

This secluded property, only 2 miles from Durango, is in a beautiful river valley abundant with tall Ponderosa Pines and enormous oaks. At 6500 feet in elevation there are great views of the La Plata Mountains with a perfect combination of warm winter days and cool summer nights. Plus you are only a 25 minute drive to the Durango Mountain Ski Resort.


This home is beautifully furnished with antiques and art. The main floor has vaulted ceilings and large windows to show off mother nature's beauty, and also contains a comfortable queen size sofa sleeper. The master bedroom and bath are on the first floor, and a second bedroom with private bath is on the second floor. The granite countertop kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs, or you can barbeque on the west covered porch with the gas grill.

After a long day exploring this wonderful area, relax in the luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub and enjoy dinner on the large southern deck. Only 30 minutes away, visit the astonishing cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde.

              Car: Recommended

              Talk about the perfect location! Your backyard is the acclaimed Red Hermosa Cliffs where numerous Red Tail Hawk nests thrive. Your front yard is pasture land overlooking the Animas River where herds of elk can be seen on numerous days. On the quiet county road you will see many bicycle riders, runners, and walkers. Enjoy the private, covered tennis court and luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub.

              Take a hike behind the cottage and be rewarded with magnificent views of the city of Durango and the river valley. Don't forget to ride the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad!

              This is truly the perfect location in Durango! You are close to everything while still in a private, cozy setting. The bakery is three minutes away; great restaurants within five to ten minutes; gamble at the Ute Mountain Casino 20 minutes away; the supermarket is six minutes away and the Durango Mountain Ski Resort is 25 minutes away. Don't forget to visit the spectacular cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde!
