About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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...

Car: Necessary

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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: 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

Why the Owner Chose Hesperus, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
