  • Great place to stay!

    "I stayed here with my family at the end of July 2014. This rental was perfect for us! Close to town (able to bike anywhere in downtown CB) and 2 blocks from a great park. We were traveling with a 5 year old, and this was a big bonus. The kitchen was perfect, beds were comfortable, and the view is amazing!! Easy access to hiking, biking, 4-wheeling."

  • Wonderful vacation

    "We booked the home knowing we wanted a place able to accommodate 3 families, 14 people, and we found the perfect location. Plenty of room for all of us, with all the comforts and amenities we desired. The Durango Mountain resort was very close and kept the kids entertained. Close enough also, that we were able to do a rafting trip down the Animas river, and not too far a drive to restock on supplies. The main thing we did enjoy was that the home is perfect for the families to relax, enjoy meals together stay entertained."

  • Very pretty decor & very comfortable place

    "We enjoyed our stay & thought the condo was very cute. We liked that there was close-by parking but also that we could walk anywhere we wanted to go. We did do some driving on several days (Trout Lake trestle, Lizard Head Pass, town of Ophir, Ames Station, Bridal Veil Falls,) but most days we walked all over town."
