About the property

Located in the East Animas River Valley only 1.8 miles from Durango, this property is on a quiet county road where you can walk, jog or bike for miles! The views are incredible in every direction.

This is a small cabin but it is very well appointed with everything that you need. There is a king size bed in the private bedroom and a sofa sleeper and small loft in the living area. Outside of the living area is a cute enclosed porch, perfect for enjoying the cool summer evenings. Satellite TV is connected to 2 LCD TV screens.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Xmas 2010- We had a wonderful and idyllic Xmas break. Durango is a fantastic place and the area has lots of outdoor opportunities. We skied Purgatory twice (one day in 2 feet of powder!!!) snowshoed at Valllecito Reservoir, hiked part of the Colorado Trail and also the trail behind the house, made it to the top of Animas mountain, enjoyed Mesa Verde in the snow (spectacular!) and drove across Molas Pass to Silverton and Ouray. We're are looking forward to being back!

Cozy cabin outside the city

  • 5 of 5

Quiet property far enough away to be private, close enough that it is quick to get into town. A few minutes from the grocery store. The only downside is that the furnace is pretty loud when sitting in the living room, and the wifi is slow (as another review pointed out to me). But the bed is comfortable and we enjoyed our stay!

We spent three tranquil nights at this lovely cabin! The location was perfect--close to downtown, yet away from the hustle & bustle & nestled in the trees. We loved having such a spot as home base for cooking, stargazing & rejuvenating our souls. It could not have been better! Thank you Lana for everything! We look forward to returning--and bringing our family & friends!

great quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin. The screened-in porch is a nice touch, wonderful place to drink your morning coffee. We would stay there again. Very relaxing, cozy place.

Everything I needed and then some

  • 5 of 5

The setting is very nice, your in the country at the base of some foothills but only minutes from the convenience of Durango. Has all the essentials needed for your stay and is very well maintained. Lana is easy to work with and answers quickly if needed. So many things to do in the area whether its the summer or in the winter. Look forward to coming back again the future.

Nice cozy cabin just outside Durango

  • 5 of 5

The property is a nice quiet countryside location at the base of a mountain and is a very short drive into Durango proper. It was as described and is a great place for a quiet getaway. It has all the amenities, is clean and has both an enclosed porch and outside table. The only (minor) concern is that the Wifi signal is weak.

Perfect little cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect getaway! We truly enjoyed the space and location. We found everything we needed tucked inside this adorable little cabin. We loved the screened in porch area and spent a lot of time enjoying the cool night air and in the mornings having our coffee and listening to the sheep that live across the street. Feeling like you are away from it all but being so close to downtown was a huge plus! Lana was so easy to work with! I recommend this cabin for your Romantic getaway!
