If you're looking for a quiet getaway offering a more unique experience, the HD Ranch guest house is the place for you. This extremely charming 1200 square foot vacation rental home sits at the end of a mile-long driveway that cuts through 100 acres of pasture land. The guest house features a tastefully decorated master bedroom, living room, library and kitchen with a loft containing three additional beds.
Watch deer grazing in a nearby pasture while soaking in your private hot tub; wander through our exquisite flower garden; or simply kick back and enjoy the serenity. After unwinding, take advantage of some of the country's best mountain biking and hiking trails, white water rafting, fishing or one of Durango's exceptional dining experiences. Also great as a hunting base.
Also in the winter we have fantastic cross county skiing on the property or very close in the mountains, snow shoeing, dog sledding and skiing...

I am a 65 year old woman who has been training horses and teaching horse back riding for 40 years now. I have this ranch for the love of horses and the beauty of Colorado. I am an avid hike and also breed Black and Tan Coonhounds who love to share their love for the many guests that come and visit
Francie Olson purchased this house in 2005
If you want a very unusual getaway and enjoy the beauty of this area with 360 degrees views of the mountains and mesas plus view much wildlife and of course the beautiful horses eating in pastures.
Everyone has told me that the guest house is much better than the pictures. You have your own deck to view the wildlife and a hot tub to watch the stars. Inside it is warm and inviting to relax. Everyone says they have never relaxed more than when they are here. Many enjoy walking the ranch and enjoying the views and horses.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Francie and her property. The guest house has everything you need and most of all it is quiet, peaceful, serene with gorgeous views. Easy access to anything you want to do in the area and the dogs are incredible they came everyday at least once for their treats. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed that the TV was upstairs and barely on the whole time we were there much nicer to enjoy the scenery, wildlife, stars and no outside stimulation really allows you to unwind. We would definitely visit again.
We - my husband, my son, his girlfriend and myself - loved our stay at the guest house! Francie was extremely easy to work with. The cabin was immaculate and had everything we needed for our long weekend stay. We enjoyed watching the horses, visits from the dogs, viewing the sunsets from the deck, lounging in the hot tub and gazing at the stars. We took day trips to Telluride, Ouray and Silverton enjoying our drives through the mountains. And we ate in Durango - which is very close by - and did a rafting trip on the Animas River. I loved the isolation and quiet of the ranch and would love to go back!
My wife & I did a trip through the southwest starting in Sedona, AZ & ending in Durango, CO. This was my favorite VRBO. The ranch is out of the way and very peaceful. The cabin is beautiful. After each day of activities in the Durango/Mesa Verde area, we walked the ranch lane & viewed the horses and relaxed on the porch. The dogs were entertaining a visited us most days. If we are in the Durango area again, we would definitely try to book again.
We were looking for some peace and beautiful scenery and we certainly were not disappointed at DH Ranch. The accommodations are exactly as depicted, if not better, and the daily visit from the dogs was a special treat. If the door wasn't already open, we would look up, and there would be those long faces gazing in at us. Amazing how they would know when it was breakfast time! Francie is so friendly, approachable, and the best hostess. We are going back in October and cannot wait. Please go visit her and her wonderful animal family. WE loved it!!!
My husband & I had such a great trip this past summer that we came back to experience Colorado in the winter. It's even more beautiful than pictures can express. Francie & her hounds are awesome. Planning a 3rd trip again this summer, this time to celebrate my best friend's 60th birthday.
We had such a relaxing and perfect fall trip to this beautiful cabin. Just the feeling of peace and solitude is so refreshing. We can't wait to come back with our kids and let them run and play in the fresh country air!
The ranch is located just 14 miles from Durango and the famous Durango Silverton train and many outdoor activities ie. rafting, fishing, hiking, walking, skiing, rock climbing, jeep tours, cross country skiing, cycling both mountain and road. Only 35 miles away is Mesa Verde National Park and you can also visit the four corners monument. From the ranch you can drive the Million dollar highway that takes you from Durango to Silverton to Ouray to Telluride and back to the ranch. I am an avid hike so I can inform you of many of the great trails in this beautiful mountain range. Also great shopping and dining in the quiant old town of Durango.
