  • Things to Do with a Family in Summer

    "We stayed with 2 young kids in August. The cabin and grounds were fun for the kids but we also used it as a base for the following activities: 1) Durango-Silverton Railroad. It’s about 30 minutes away. We took the 9:30 bus up and the 1:45 train back and it worked well. Make sure to reserve the left side of the train when traveling to Durango from Silverton as the view is better. Finished the day with dinner at the Bar D Chuckwagon in Durango which had great music and a fun stuff for the kids. 2) Rimrock Outfitters Horse Back Riding. Rimrock Outfitters is located near the cabin. The hour ride around the lake reminded me of every cowboy movie I’ve ever seen, it was so picture perfect. The owners were super friendly and old west. 3) Mesa Verde. The national park is about 15 minutes from the cabin. To get all the way to Cliff Palace in the Park from the cabin was about an hour. We headed over in the afternoon, saw the museum and Spruce Tree House, and then did the twilight tour at Cliff Palace (reserved a month in advance). All excellent. 4) Hiking the La Plata Mountains. Near Rimrock Outfitters (and near the cabin) the county road continues on up into the Las Plata Mountains. The road was dirt (but easy compared to the Ouray area) and we drove up about 20 minutes above Rimrock and went for a fantastic hike. We found a well-marked trail that was also used for horses. There were free grazing cattle, wild flowers, and views. 5) Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores. This museum was about 30 minutes away and had fun stuff for the kids. There was also an archaeological site near the museum but it was about a ½ mile hike and the kids were tired so we didn't do it. 6) Star Gazing. We took along a telescope and there was a nice spot next to the cabin for viewing the night sky."

  • Fabulous rental!!

    "Please read Cheryl P's review "Dream Home Away from Home". I was planning to write the exact thing, so to keep from sounding redundant, just know I totally agree with everything she said. This home is fabulous! It is the best furnished and best stocked home we have ever rented. To add to Cheryl P's review, I will mention we stayed a week and visited The Arches, The Canyonlands, Monument Valley, and Mesa Verde. We also spent a day in Durango, and took a day to drive the scenic Alpine Loop to visit Silverton and Telluride. I mention these, so you know they are all within driving distance of this rental. We still had our last day to just relax and 'chill out' at the house because it was such a lovely place to stay. During our week, we grilled out three evenings, played horse shoes, read books, and ate every breakfast at the house. I have to say, we ate more meals at this house than we have ever eaten at previous vacation rentals. The house makes you want to hang around and enjoy everything about it! Mancos Pizza is "so-so", and you can watch out-of-town football (go Colts!) at Mr Happy's BBG in Cortez. Terry, Cindy, and caretaker Linda, have thought of everything! Guaranteed, you will not be disappointed with this rental. Can't say enough positive things, and cannot think of anything negative to say. Two couples rented this house. Plenty of space for everyone."

  • Beautiful home -family of four loved it and location to areas National Parks.

    "Mesa Verde cliff dwellings was our primary focus when searching for a house. Location was good but the house and offerings were the icing on the cake. Hot tub after hiking was fantastic. Very clean and modern. Two bedrooms and an extra HIGH QUALITY self inflating/deflating mattress was great with teenage kids. Patios and tables galore.. more than we could use in a few days. Separate observation deck for night sky viewing was nice. Many restaurants and grocery in town nearby. Many good destinations close by for day tripping and using as a base camp for a week."

  • Magical Place

    "Our stay at Magic Rock was fantastic. The pictures don't do it justice. We were enchanted by the gorgeous views, the rock sculpted landscapes and the water oasis just over the hill. The rental itself is charming, with all the comforts of home. It was beautifully cleaned by Karen, and was a lovely home away from home. After each day of sight seeing, we ended the day with a glass of wine on the deck, watching the gorgeous sunsets and absorbing the quiet of the location. In fact, we brought in dinner each night so as not to miss one minute of the lovely evenings at Magic Rock. Mesa Verde is a short ride away, and the drive up the Dolores River to Telluride is not to be missed. Our stay at Magic Rock was one of the highlights of our week in southern Colorado and the Four Corners region."
