About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our 'Grandma's' house has been in our family for close to 90 years, built in the late 1800s. The house has two fireplaces and a piano, and huge bathroom with original clawfoot tub to relax in. The house is a wonderful Queen Anne Victorian, two story on large corner lot with mature trees and great location. There is a picnic table in the back for outside dining.

Directly across the street is a wonderful park for the family. The house is one block from the river and river walk, and very close to Gold Medal waters for the flyfisherman/woman. We have an annual motorcycle rally on Labor Day weekend, and the famed Iron Horse Bicycle Race (in which you can race the train to Silverton, 50 miles away) on Memorial Weekends. The ski area is 20 miles away, Mesa Verde National Park is 40 miles. You can easily walk to town
to take advantage of our shopping and great restaurants.

We have prime hunting, hiking, jeeping, camping, and kayaking in our area. Hike the fourteeners, or just take in the beautiful mountain scenery.

Just bring your family, friends, clothes, and toothbrush! You will love Grandma's House as much as we do and we hope the memories you make will be as wonderful as ours. Please call or email for additional pics. I can be contacted at, or text 970-946-1831

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I inherited this home from my mother, who was raised in the house. It is full of great memories, both of my parents and my grandparents. We spent vacation times here while my dad was in the navy, and when they retired, here is where they returned. My husband and I enjoy sharing 'Grandma's House' with guests wanting to visit Durango. We intend to live there in the future, but our business dictates we live out in the country for a few more years.

Why the Owner Chose Durango, CO, USA:
We inherited Grandma's House in Durango, Colorado, from my mother, who was raised in this house. It's in a perfect location, close to downtown, but away from the traffic and hustle bustle of town. We love the idea that it has been in my family for almost 90 years, and we intend to keep it for far longer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Grandma's House is the perfect place for family reunions, a place for families to stay while attending weddings, graduations or just a great vacation. It provides a 'home away from home' for families who want to vacation together and don't want to stay in multiple hotel rooms. Here you can fix your meals to share, barbecue or have picnics in the backyard, or go to dinner down town. We have a park across the street, easy access about a block and a half away from a walking/biking riverside path that winds its way through town and beyond. You can visit the fish hatchery and feed the fish, or go fishing in the river. In the summer you can go tubing or rafting down the river, or go hiking or mountain biking. We are close to Mesa Verde National Park, where you can visit the cliff dwellings. We are 20 minutes away from Purgatory Ski Area, where you can ski in the winter, or ride the chair lift up and take the Alpine Slide down in the summer. They also have many activities there for children. We have a Narrown Gauge Train, which will take you to Silverton, an old mining town 50 miles north. From the train, you will see beautiful scenery you can't see from a car. We have the Iron Horse Race, where you can race the train to Silverton on your bicycle. Over Labor Day weekend we have a motorcycle rally during which you can ride all over the mountains, taking in the beauty. You can attend our annual Fiesta, including a parade, and rodeos and a multitude of other activities. Grandma's House is a destination for families and friends to enjoy what Colorado has to offer. You will have many memories to take home with you and return again and again!
