This quaint vintage bungalow was built in 1928 and was originally used as housing for the St. Columba Church staff. This spacious 900 SF apartment has 1 bedroom, 1 bath, dining room, sun porch, and is dog/kid friendly. This residence is tucked away on a quiet street in coveted location that we refer to as "MidTown Durango", walking distance to everything. This home is situated across the street from a beautiful grassy park and the St. Columba Catholic Church. This lovingly restored apartment has plenty of character and charm. The location is 1 block from the library, 5 blocks from downtown dining and shopping and 2 blocks from the paved biking trail along the Animas river. The apartment has original hardwood flooring throughout, with tile in bath and kitchen, separate dining room, gas stove, full size refrigerator in kitchen, classic deep claw-foot tub in bathroom, queen size bed in bedroom and full size sofa bed in living area if you need room for 4 guests. There is also a lovely sun porch off of the kitchen, where you can enjoy coffee or store bikes and skis and have access to the fenced community back yard. Fully landscaped front yard surrounded with a picket fence is also a nice place to hang out while the kids play at the park across the street.

Why Katie Ives Sturm chose Durango
This is a really beautiful property located in the best location in town.Durango is a fantastic home base with access to the mountains, desert and rivers allowing you the ability to have fun year-round. We had vacationed in Durango many years ago and always dreamed of living here. We love this property because of it's very quiet central location with easy access to all the downtown amenities on foot, or bike. Walk to the river and it is a quick trip to the mountains or the nearby alpine lakes.
What makes this Apartment unique
Arched doorways, Santa Fe style architecture. The park across the street is super for kids and pets and picnics. The fenced courtyard behind the apartment has a shared deck for guests. The home has two steps up, but otherwise is all one level. Nice to sit out front and enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine while taking in the sun. Friendly neighborhood with mostly owners or long term renters.

This apartment was perfect for me and my hubs! We were able to walk to downtown within 7 minutes. This place is quite small, but was exactly what we were looking for. So much character! The neighbors were very sweet & offered us advice on what restaurants/bars to check out. The home owners were quick to respond to any questions we had and made checking in/leaving easy for us. We made so many wonderful memories here & would most definitely return to this home!
Thanks so much for the kind words. Glad you had a good time. Come stay again anytime.
We loved the location of this sweet unit. It was perfect for walking or biking into downtown.
Small but roomy. Quite at night with a comfortable bed. It was close to EVERYTHING! Would stay again and recommend it too family and friends.
Perfect location and attentive host!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Perfect Mid-Town location two blocks from the river trail meant we rarely had to drive. Katie was a super attentive and gracious host! Would definitely stay again!
Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed yourself
Cozy, clean, and comfortable!
A nice relaxing place to stay for a short visit to Durango. Nice neighborhood feel and good park for the kids across the street. Close to beautiful river walk.
Nice space, very attentive hosts
We really appreciate the hospitality demonstrated by the hosts. The space was clean and inviting. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a single-bed type of stay in Durango. Unfortunately the neighbors on either side moved out while we were there and others moved in, so there was a lot of disruptive noise late at night for a few sporadic days but it didn't take away from the experience, too much. The location is prime. We utilized the river path and library extensively.
Thanks for the good stay!
Super cute. Perfect location.
Our family spent Christmas in Durango and stayed at the apartment for three nights. Really cool littl place with all the historical quirks. The sofa bed is tiny, but my two teenage daughters managed. Would definitely stay here again and again.
