Vallecito Lake Family Retreat vacation rental home near Durango Bayfield Colorado.
Quiet, in-the-woods privacy only begins to describe the setting for this large, family-sized log-styled home in the Vallecito Lake Valley between Durango and Bayfield Colorado. Four bedrooms, plus large sleeping loft puts up to 16 people in beds with room for more on air mattresses in the huge loft. Some have referred to this home as a “giant, luxury cabin”. This is an excellent home for a family or group to experience all that the Vallecito Lake Rocky Mountain area has to offer.
Inside, the large, family sized living room is filled with beautiful light from the huge windows, and the moss rock, wood-burning fireplace anchors the room. In addition to the living room, the open floor plan includes a dining room with seating for ten, a breakfast nook for more dining space and the country kitchen, complete with all new appliances. The enormous sleeping loft, complete with four queen beds, pool table and full bath is open to the living area below. A total of three full baths supports the comfort and convenience of this lovely home, with one bath on the upper loft level and two baths on the main, ground level.
Outdoors, the back patio is large enough for the whole group to enjoy the woods that surround the home, complete with grill and outdoor dining and enough seating to have a grand picnic right at this home. In front of the home, a covered porch with benches and open grassy lawn provide space and fun for the kids without have to leave the grounds. There is RV parking (no hookups) and room to park multiple cars plus space to park the trailer for ATVs, motorcycles and snowmobiles. Fisher-people have use of a stainless steel cleaning table and sink well (located in the trees, away from the home) with water supply from a lawn hose hookup.
This is one of the most private, low traffic homes we have experienced in the area. Expect peace-and-quiet and a relaxing escape while staying at this home. Access to the home is via state and county paved roads plus flat, well-maintained gravel roads in a quiet neighborhood. Though the home is surrounded by mountains, it is easy to drive to year round, as the location is in the flat, river valley area.
There is ample parking for multiple vehicles, boat, snowmobile and horse trailers, so bring your toys to enjoy more of the activities offered by this long-standing, adventure-filled resort lake community.

There is also the ‘locals favorite’ cross country skiing trail along the Eastern edge of the lake, which is groomed all winter for both classic skiing and skate skiing.
Just minutes from this home is The Rusty Shovel Grill, one of the community’s newer eateries with great food, a full-service bar and pub games. Also nearby is the Vallecito Lake Country Market. Here you will find staples including groceries, picnic and camping supplies, fishing tackle, gasoline and propane, candy, fudge and carry-out food.

The town of Bayfield, Colorado is about a 25 minute drive and Durango is about a 35 minute drive through the beautiful, picturesque Florida River Valley.
