About the Property
Estate, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16-24)
Built in 1995-1996, the lodge itself is a magnificent 6,500 square foot custom log home with expansive wrap-around decks offering views of the majestic La Plata Mountains, the Florida Mesa, and abundant wildlife. Open floor plans, cathedral ceilings, and soaring windows provide views of deer, elk, and wild turkey seen almost daily year-round. Inside the lodge, seven bedrooms will accommodate 20 guests with room for more upon request.
The main floor has two full-size sofas as well as additional seating for comfortable relaxation and is situated around a floor to ceiling woodburning river rock fireplace with satellite television and a DVD/VCR. Several entryways provide access to covered decks with panoramic views. Private bedrooms include shared full baths and another half bath with shower just around the corner. The dining area and kitchen on the main floor feature a teak dining table easily seating ten people with additional leafs for expansion. A massive elk antler chandelier adorns the area.
The custom kitchen and center island features solid granite countertops, a six burner gas range, double ovens, and everything else even the most discerning gourmet cook will appreciate. The center island provides casual seating. The mudroom offers a full-size washer and dryer, a full upright freezer, and a large open pantry.
The lower living area also has a full-size sofa and chair seating around a second river rock fireplace and a big screen satellite television with DVD/VCR. It hosts four private bedrooms including a kids 'dorm room' with a bassinet and one shared full bath. Two entryways provide access to covered patios.
Take the log staircase to the upper level and you will find the master suite complete with a rustic aspen log frame king-size bed and two private decks with views that will take your breath away. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, double vanity, and a spacious walk-in closet that includes an extra sleeping area with futon, a ping pong table, or a secluded place to just be alone with your thoughts and relax.

This house was designed without central air, because of it's alititude!

Ski: Durango Mountain Resort and Wolf Creek Ski Area
This is a rural property just outside of Durango city limits which sits atop a mountainous ridge. You will NEED 4 wheel drive in the winter or chains. There is a good chance you will encounter wild life, small and large. You may see mice, chipmunks, rabbits, turkey, coyotes, deer, elk, mountain lions and bears! Also, the Lodge is equipped with ceiling fans and portable fans in every room for summer, not air conditioning. Generally, the wind at this altitude can be cool enough to burn fires at the Lodge in the summer nights. If any of these things mentioned here bother you or are a cause of concern we may not be a perfect fit, and ultimately we want you to have a wonderful experience. Kindest regards, Rincon Lodge
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: Our caretaker is located near the property and can be available for whatever your needs may be during your stay. He also plows the roads to the property and our driveway. It is critical during winter months drive a 4 wheel drive or have chained tires to access the lodge.
Why the Owner Chose Rincon Ridge, Durango, CO, USA:
Everyone loves this property! Why? The Lodge itself, the views, the land around the property to hike or sled, the amenities and space within the lodge, the seclusion and tranquility, the authenticity of living in a log cabin in the mountains!
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
A true Log Cabin nestled atop a ridge that is totally secluded to the outside world. At it's elevation of approximately 7500 ft above sea level, the wind blows through the night allowing for a roaring fire sometimes in the middle of summer. This fenced 80 acre property will allow your entire party to roam safely without getting lost in the mountains of Durango. All the comforts of home in a large 3 story cabin with heated floors, lots of space and where the only sounds you hear at night are deer walking through leaves or a wolf howling at the moon.
