  • 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!!!!"

  • Beautiful home with a view of the mountains just outside Durango

    "This home was perfect for a Anniversary get-away for a week. Very clean and well maintained. There was 2 couples and we each had a bedroom. Plenty of room in home for playing card games and dominos. Very nice kitchen area to cook and eat with all the amenities. Loved having the washer and dryer! We sat out by the pond every night and watched the sunset and beautiful mountains in the distance. Will be back to visit this place again!"

  • Perfect home for family get togethers

    "Our family of 3 couples and 3 children stayed a week at this home in August 2011. The beauty of the house and surroundings far surpasses the pictures. The owner Ed and his daughter Krista were very thoughtful and answered my many questions beforehand. Krista met us at the property and showed us in detail how to operate everything in the house. The views even from the couch are breathtaking. We sat on the spacious porch and listened to hummingbirds daily...sometimes that was the only sound outside for hours. During our stay, deer, wild turkeys, and even a bear were spotted. The 3 master suites are huge and it was great for each couple to have their own bath. Even the kids had one. The kitchen is a dream and well stocked, not only with spices, but with every dish and cooking tool you might need. It was unanimous in my family that this was the best house we could have found!"

Private Homes Travel Tips

After you visit once, it's a place that you will want to visit time and time again. Southwest Colorado offers an abundance of outdoor activities regardless of the season. You'll truly appreciate your surroundings at Durango vacation homes. Whether you are drawn by the mountains, the clear blue lakes and streams, or the majestic forests, everywhere you look there is something spectacular to see.

Durango Vacation Homes are Surrounded by Beauty

Durango lodging is nestled up in the San Juan Mountain Range, which features the amazing Hermosa Cliffs. The dramatic lines of the cliffs glisten with snow in the winter and invite hikers and rock climbers in the spring. While the mountains provide the backdrop for the landscape, the lakes and streams are just as spectacular. Besides being beautiful, these bodies of water are also great for fishing. A favorite spot for a picnic lunch is along the banks of Electra Lake.

Top Attractions Are Just a Short Drive Away

The Durango vacation homes are centrally located in this resort area and make an excellent base for your visit to southwest Colorado. The famous Purgatory ski area is only about 10 miles from this Durango lodging, and there you can engage in a number of winter activities. In addition to alpine skiing for all levels, there is also snowboarding, tubing, snow biking and sleigh rides. New snow is never a concern in Purgatory because this region gets over 20 feet of snow a year.

Enjoy all the Comforts of Home

The main reason you should choose Durango vacation rentals is the privacy you will receive. You will be able to appreciate the serenity of the area while staying in your own private vacation home instead of some busy tourist resort. If you really want to get away from it all, this is the place to be.
