About Terry & Cindy
Terry and Cindy are from Tempe, Arizona. We built our vacation home in 2001 after spending a lot of time vacationing in the area. Skiing at Purgatory was an annual trip for us. Since this was built as a vacation home for us, our kids and grand kids, we have tried to make it as homey as possible. We enjoy cooking, so the kitchen is well equipped. Today we are both retired and are able to spend more time in Colorado. We still like to take other vacations and travel back and forth between Arizona and Colorado all year, so have chosen to continue to rent out our home when we are unable to be there.
Terry & Cindy purchased this House in 2001
What makes this House unique
Sitting on the deck just can't be beat. We are typically up early to watch the sunrise while drinking our morning coffee. In the evenings, we watch the hummingbirds at the feeders and watch the deer come and go in the yard. The East facing deck provides plenty of privacy. We call the fire pit our "Mountain TV" as we can sit and watch the fire for hours!

Clean, comfortable, everything you could need
Wonderful property. Cozy, beautifully decorated, and fully-equipped. Recommend star-gazing on the back deck! Convenient to Mesa Verde (purpose of our trip), as well as Durango (spent a day walking around old-town). It was just the two of us, but a family would be very comfortable there. Highly recommended.
Best stay EVER!
Terry and Cindy have the most beautiful cabin! They were so accommodating and had everything ready for our arrival. The home was equipped with everything needed. It was also the perfect location to visit all of the sites. We hope to come back in the summer and we’ll definitely be choosing this cabin again.
Very nice and well appointed.
Loved staying here. So peaceful and comfortable.
So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay.
Excellent Christmas Vacation Home!!!
This cabin was more beautiful in person than the pictures can portray! I am a native of the area and have stayed many places in surrounding towns but this by far was my favorite place. We opened the door and were greeted with a beautiful Christmas tree and beautiful Christmas decorations throughout the home. This is only the second vacation home in the 20 years I have been traveling back home that has taken the time to put up Christmas decorations.
The cabin is beautifully decorated, clean and so welcoming. The owners have taken great pride in this home. The cabinets are fully stocked with anything that you could possibly need. I forgot to buy pancake mix at the local grocery store and was able to whip up battered pancakes and homemade syrup with items they had stocked in the cabinet.
Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable! We will be back! Hopefully next time we will have a white Christmas!
So glad you all had a nice stay. We appreciate the feedback and were more than happy to put up the Christmas decorations for you!
I wish I could take better pictures . . . this is a common refrain from our reviewers. That the pictures do not do our home justice.
We look forward t having you back for your next family reunion.
Thank you again.
Very nice home, well maintained , beautiful decoration , clean. I will recomend it
Thank you Marco,
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay.
Should your travels bring you back to the area we hope you consider our home again.
Cindy & Terry
This was the perfect property at the perfect location for our road to SW Colorado & Mesa Verde.
The property was a beautiful mountain
'cabin' with floor to ceiling picture windows,
wrap around deck with chairs & tables
BBQ, fire pit & ample wood from morning &
evening fires. The grounds were spacious with no other homes in sight. It was very quiet & peaceful with deer visiting each day. In the
clear mountain air saw the Milky Way at night.
The home is all we could want. Beautiful high
ceilings, knotty pine woodwork, spacious nicely furnished living area, comfortable beds & bedrooms & kitchen supplied with absolutely everything we needed. In addition the owners Terry & Cindy responded to our questions within minutes.
In many years of traveling I have never stayed at a better property.
I just realized that I didn’t post a response to your lovely review!
We are so glad that you all had a good time.
I enjoyed chatting with you and appreciate your following up with us.
We love to hear from our guests!
