  • Great Accomodation

    "We couldn't have been happier about our selection of accomodations. The place is well kept and well stocked. It was perfect for our 2 families. We would highly recommend and would stay again. The beds were really comfortable and there is plenty of storage. The balcony was very enjoyable to relax in the sun after skiing all day and hot tub was amazing."

  • A perfect place to relax with friends or family

    "We enjoyed a similar cabin last fall, so when the opportunity came up to meet friends in Durango, we returned to the vrbo sight. We enjoyed a relaxing weekend with friends in this clean, comfortable cabin. The kitchen was big enough for us to work together preparing easy meals to fellowship around. No need to travel out unless you wanted to. The owners are very accessible and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family."

  • Quiet and Peaceful

    "The Double J cabin was a wonderful place to go to at the end of long days of sight-seeing and outside activities. It is very quiet and peaceful, and in a very beautiful location. It is about 20 miles outside Durango, and we loved just driving through the wonderful scenery going back and forth between the cabin and our other activities. The listing description and photos were very accurate. The cabin and the outside area are both well maintained and everything was sparkling clean. We did not use the oven or dishwasher in the cabin (my idea of a vacation does not include cooking!) but the cabin appeared to have a large supply of dishes and cooking utensils. There were plenty of towels and even small sizes of amenities such as lotion, shampoo, etc. We liked having wi-fi and the HDTV with satellite. The cabin also contained a nice selection of information about places to eat and activities in the area. The owners seemed to really try to have anything guests would possibly need. We ate at a couple of really good places in Durango. We liked Doughworks for breakfast - they make their own doughnuts and pastries and have a great selection of items. If you really want to go back in time, try the Durango Diner - counter eating and huge portions. We also ate at Chimayo Stone Fired Kitchen, which is a bistro-type restaurant with many different kinds of wood-fired pizzas and small plates (the fire-roasted jalapeno quacamole was great!) We always ride the Durango/Silverton Train, which is always fun. This year we also did the zipline at Full Blast Adventure Center in Durango - something kids of all ages would love. Downtown Durango is full of neat shops and a couple of really good bookstores. We loved the Double J cabin and we love Durango."

  • Best vacation ever!

    "We had 4 different immediate families for a total of 10 staying here for 1 week and there was plenty of room. We took our dogs and they loved the it as well. The views were exquisite! Nothing like waking up to the mountain views. The area was very quite and friendly people. We would all love to visit again someday. It is located right in the middle of Durango and Silverton."
