Xanadu could not have been better. The setting is private and spectacular. The home itself is beautiful . The home is large but still cozy. Every room is fun to sit in. Most the rooms have fantastic views including the master bedroom . It also is a short drive to town and nearby activities. I never want to leave this place.

We (myself and 7 buddies) came over to Durango from Grand Junction to do some mountain bike riding. This house fit us all very comfortably, was set back privately, but still close enough to town to get supplies. We really enjoyed hanging out in the large kitchen and eating on the deck with the beautiful views. Not to mention it was perfectly located for the trail riding. The Colorado Trail is just up the road and the famous Hermosa Creek Trail literally ends right at the house! Scott was so easy to work with and made everything very smooth. This place really is Xanadu! Thank you!

My fiancé and I were looking for a romantic weeklong getaway where we could easily access many outdoor activities by day, cook nice meals in the evening and then relax in the Jacuzzi or by the wood burning fireplace. We found it with this hassle free property, which not only lived up to, but exceeded our expectations. Enjoyed sunny morning with a cup of fresh coffee in the great room overlooking the Animas Valley (really stunning as it lights up with the morning sunrise). We skied, we hiked, we biked, and we wandered around downtown Durango (and had the best wood-fired pizza we’ve ever had at Fired Up). We really enjoyed our relaxing stay and are already planning/looking forward to our return trip next year!

House Review March 5th to 12th, 2013
We were three couples who stayed at the house for a week while skiing at nearby (20 minutes) Durango Mountain. The house is high quality on a private 3 acre lot conveniently located about 15 minutes from downtown Durango. A paved road goes from the highway to the house. The property is bright and airy, with stunning southern views of both sides of the Animas Valley. The decor and artwork are tasteful and predominantly southwestern. All furnishings, appliances and utensils are modern, comfortable and high quality. We fully enjoyed our stay in this house and hope to come back next year.

My family and I stayed here over President's Day Weekend and it was fantastic. The space was comfortable, clean and beautiful, an as-advertised location. I would highly recommend this property if you're staying in the Durango area. We skied at Purgatory and enjoyed being in between town and the ski area.
