Overview

About the property

Estate, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16-24)

Rincon Lodge is located just east of historic Durango, Colorado where you can enjoy countless seasonal activities such as golfing, horseback riding, river rafting, shopping, dining, and world-class hunting & fishing. Also nearby are Mesa Verde National Park, the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad, two ski areas (Durango Mountain Resort and Wolf Creek Ski Area), and natural healing hot spring spas.

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.

Accommodations total two king-size beds, two queen-size beds, one full-size bed, four twin beds, two sets of bunk bed, and futon sleepers. Radiant in-floor heating is accented by oak hardwoods, carpet, slate, and saltillo tile. There are ceiling fans and portable fans in every room. This house was designed without central air, because of it's alititude!

In conjunction with the Lodge for larger parties, the guesthouse will sleep 4 comfortably. Situated as a studio apartment or 'mother-in-law' quarters above the 3 car garage, it offers the same stupendous views and peaceful settings as the Lodge, located approximately 60 yards directly north.

Located at 7487', the fully fenced 76 acres of ponderosa and juniper pine covered ground around the lodge offer endless nature trail hiking, snowshoeing, snow sledding, mountain biking, picnicking, barbecuing, horseshoes, and a ski run in the winter months to keep busy during your stay.

Complimentary wireless internet throughout the property.

RINCON LODGE has something for everyone! With its spaciousness, unmatched beauty and peaceful surroundings, it is an ideal vacation spot for family and school reunions, or executive corporate retreats. For more information, please contact us at 303-362-0964 or e-mail!

About Kimberly

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.

Kimberly purchased this estate in 1996

Why Kimberly chose Durango

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!

What makes this estate unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent Christmas at Rincon Lodge in 2006 and we returned to spend Christmas of 2010. The Lodge is great and all of our family had a great time. We had enough snow for a snowman and the house was decorated so pretty and the tree was great. It is a wonderful and beautiful place to relax and enjoy family time. Thank you for sharing your place with us. Scott was great and thanks for all your help.

Perfect size and setting for our reunion

  • 5 of 5

Rincon Lodge was just what we needed for our family reunion. the kitchen is well stocked as far as utensils and cookware and they had plenty of bed space or futons or air mattresses for everyone to sleep on. We spent much of our time on the large deck, eating and enjoying the beautiful view. The lodge was fairly clean and we were quite impressed with how spacious it was. The manager was very helpful about questions I had prior to getting there. If we ever need to rent a large home again in Durango, we would definitely try to get Rincon Lodge again.

Wonderful location for a family get together with a wonderful deck with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

This lodge is beautiful inside and out, and also very functional for large groups. The location is remote enough for privacy but also close enough to town that trips to the store are not difficult. Being on top of the ridge, there are views for miles, and everyone loved hanging out on the deck to see the views. I highly recommend this lodge for family gatherings. We had people from the age of 8 to almost 80. The kitchen and dining area are large and the kitchen is fully equipped. We had over 20 people in our group and were comfortable.

Spring Break Family

  • 5 of 5

WOW enough cannot be said about this property. The pictures DO NOT do it justice. It is the highest property in the whole area so you can see for miles on end. The secluded area was just right for our family get away for Spring Break. Yet we were only a short drive from downtown Durango. Rooms a plenty for everyone and the Kitchen was a Chef's dream. If you have a group for 10 or more don't think twice this is the place for you.

If you have any questions email me and I can answer question if you like. Management knows how to communicate with me. Kimberly was wonderful to work with and on site support was there for any needs we had. ( none, everything was perfect. )

We look forward to going back.

The Lodge of Views

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place in Durango to relax and unwind. The wrap-around porch is perfect for morning coffee and evening cookouts. The lodge easily slept 15 with large bedrooms and comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully stocked for all cooking needs, along with 2 large TVs and a ping pong table. Not that one needs to spend much time at the lodge with so many activities in and around Durango. My highlight was watching the evening 'fireworks' of lightening storms (in July) from the porch. The porch has 250 degree (probably more) views from high atop the ridge, making for the perfect place to begin or end your day.

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
