Recent Electra Lake reviews

  • Lovely, Cozy Cabin

    "This lovely cabin is the perfect place for a family vacation! It is roomy and cozy with everything you could ever want. The listing description is accurate, the appearance and amenities are better than the pictures show, and the cabin is clean and maintained very well. There is plenty of room for reading, playing games, or hanging out on the patio or deck. The property manager is extremely helpful and available when needed. We would definitely recommend this cabin to friends and family! The cabin is 20 miles from Durango, and it is a beautiful drive. We went into Durango many times and enjoyed the scenery with every trip. We visited Durango, Mesa Verde, Silverton, and four lakes in the area. The only negative was that Electra Lake was closed for repair of some pipes, but that just made us explore the area to find the other pretty lakes around. We found many places to hike at Haviland Lake and Spud Lake. All were beautiful and fun! The hot tub was an extra bonus that was enjoyed by all each evening. We all wanted to stay for another week - we will be back! Loved it!!!!"

  • A perfect place for a family Thanksgiving

    "We spent Thanksgiving here, to be close to our son. The cabin was perfect: well furnished & clean, with a well appointed kitchen that made Thanksgiving dinner (and other meals) a snap; a wood stove with a healthy supply of firewood; and a hot tub that was ready when we arrived. We had the privacy we wanted with easy access to many of the places that activities that Durango has to offer. Electra Lake with spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains and Chicago Basin was a short and pleasant walk from the cabin. Its close to the ski resort but not too far from Durango; and a reasonable drive to Silverton. And if this wasn't enough, the owners were very friendly, accommodating and flexible with arrival and departure times. On previous trips, we have stayed in Durango, but this was definitely a huge improvement; and we look forward to returning."

  • Wow - I want to go back now!

    "Wow. This past July we stayed at this cabin near DMR for 7 days (rented through the "Durango Colorado Vacations" management company). So remote feeling, being up on the mountain in the middle of a forest, yet only 2 miles from DMR. The home was in immaculate condition - made up as though part of a 5 star hotel. There was plenty of room for our party of 8. The cabin is beautifully decorated and very well appointed. The owners seemed to have thought of everything - even games for the kids and hiking sticks. The huge deck with hot tub and fire pit made for very relaxing evenings after the sun went down. While sitting on the deck after dark, be sure to turn out all the lights in the cabin so you can view all the shooting stars and galaxies that come out to play. The deck is also well appointed with chairs and is a great place to drink your coffee during the cool mornings. Being so close to DMR we were able to easily take the kids over there for all of the available summertime activities. The easily accessible drive up to Silverton is also beautiful and provides many opportunities for additional hiking or fishing/kayaking at the many different small alpine lakes along the way. This would also be a perfect location for winter skiing at DMR and we will definitely be back. The staff at Durango Colorado Vacations also helped to make sure our vacation exceeded our expectations. They provide concierge level service - able to not only answer questions but also to provide great recommendations for restaurants and activities. We would definitely rent this home again and would heartily recommend the folks at Durango Colorado Vacations."

  • A great choice near Durango

    "Two couples stayed here for a golf and fishing vacation. The house is just as described in the listing and the reviews. A very clean, well equipped house with everything you need. The two twins converted to a king is very comfortable. We loved the location, far enough away from Durango to feel secluded but close enough to head into town for dinner. We enjoyed the San Juan Skyway one day, a very doable day trip if you don't stop too long at any one place. The property manager, Kimberly, was very prompt and helpful, a real asset to this listing."
