"Rio Angels was the perfect place for our family vacation! The kids had a wonderful time playing at the river and exploring, and the adults had such a relaxing vacation because the kids were so happily entertained! It was great to be so close to downtown Durango (5 minutes by car), but we had so much fun at Rio Angels that we would have been happy to stay there the entire time!"

"We have been wracking our brains to tell you something about what you can expect when you stay here that hasn’t already been said. With that in mind, we’ll just rate various aspects of our stay.
With 1 being “Get me out of here” and 10 being “Heaven on earth”, let’s get started. . . .
Soul healing solitude: 10
Beauty of the home: 10+
Proximity to activities: 9 (I had to make something less than a 10 or you’d think we’re pushovers.)
Warmth and friendliness of the host: 10+
Will we stay here again? If Morris will let us!"

"I stayed in this house for a skiing trip and I could not have been happier about my decision. This home fit eight people comfortably and was a mere 30 minutes away from Purgatory resort.
My entire group had a great time and constantly complimented on the state of the house. The grill and the hot tub also worked wonderfully and were kept in excellent condition.
Overall, I had a wonderful vacation for a very good price and I would recommend this property to anyone looking to do the same."

"My wife, dog, and I spent 12 nights here in May, 2015. The weather was quirky (including about 4-5 inches of snow one night), which was fine with us. The house itself is very comfortable and nicely equipped; it was spotlessly clean when we arrived. Jenna was great to work with on scheduling; there were some technical issues beyond anybody's control and the owner Darrell was very reasonable in making things right and fair. We hesitated about taking this property because it is a bit close to the highway, 1/3 mile by road, closer as the crow flies. It turned out to be a non-issue for us (there was less traffic than we thought), and there is an upside to NOT spending 10-15 minutes on unpaved road, as some other properties we've rented (and enjoyed). The location is great, at 8300 feet. It is literally 20 minutes (18 miles) in one direction to the City Market grocery on the north side of Durango, a great town for active vacationers, and 6 miles, I think, to the DMR ski resort in the other direction. Havilland Lake, which attracts fisherpeople (!), is across the highway, so close you can see it from the house. The setting and mountain views from the house are terrific, and there is only one neighboring house which is fairly far; you are surrounded by views and trees. We would return without hesitation."
