****The calendar is always updated and you can book the property online****

Rancho del Lago is a spectacular estate property just 4 miles (10 minutes) to downtown Durango and 28 miles (35 minutes) south of Purgatory Ski Resort. This Turtle Lake residence is unlike any other set in a gorgeous meadow with majestic views of the surrounding mountains, unique rock outcroppings, and Colorado bluebird skies.

The 20 acres showcase a main residence and guesthouse. This is the listing for the 1,300 square foot guest house ONLY which features 3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms (note the 2nd bathroom is downstairs in the barn - see photo in the listing). The homes can be rented separately or together as each has substantial privacy buffers from the other yet are only 100 yards apart.

The exterior of the homes incorporate a gorgeous mix of corrugated metal, stone and reclaimed barn wood creating the quintessential Colorado mountain estate. The grounds are fenced for horses and include gorgeous landscaping around the house with woodlands, aspens, cottonwoods and healthy pastures beyond. The home features an open kitchen and living space, full bath with laundry, a large master bedroom and two bedrooms on the upper level. Access to thousands of acres of National Forest are within minutes; the Colorado Trailhead is a quick walk up the road.

This lakefront property is one of seven properties on Turtle Lake with roughly 600 feet of water frontage.

Perfect place to unwind and enjoy nature. Secluded yet minutes from downtown. Morning coffee on the deck watching the deer roam. Inside amenities were plenty and comfortable.

Reviewer Comments:

This was a beautiful location. Our only disappointment was the bathrooms. It is advertised as having 2 baths. One bath is down in the garage and is a stretch to call it a bathroom. (A laundry tub for a sink and no vanity, cement floors) Creative but misleading. Other than that it was a great place.

Owner's Response: Hi Diane, Thanks so much for your feedback regarding your recent stay with Durango Premier Vacation Rentals Group. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the location of our home, but are sorry to hear about the misunderstanding relative to the location second bathroom. We strive to include as much information as possible about our properties in our listings so guests have the information they need prior to booking. For example, the listing content for this home specifically notes that the 2nd bathroom is located downstairs in the barn. We also include photos of the bathroom with additional text describing the location. We're sorry to hear you felt it was misleading -- that clearly wasn't our intent having noted the location of the bathroom in variety of ways in the property listing.
