Private Paradise close to town, in a prestigious lake community

This is the place to experience a true Durango vacation! With incredible 360 degree mountain views and immaculate landscaping, the newly renovated Double J offers a full kitchen, a dining and living area with beautiful light coming through the impressive 2 story windows. The living room features a wood burning stove for those chilly nights, and a small library with books related to the area.

Off the living/dining room is a spacious deck, the perfect place to enjoy a meal, or just absorb the beauty of the glorious aspens and pines, any time of day. Beyond the grassy landscaped grounds, you can unwind while watching a variety of interesting water fowl that abound in and around the close by pond. (sorry, no fishing!) On the main floor, there is a second bedroom with two twin beds and a large closet. Adjacent to this bedroom is a spacious bathroom with shower.

The cabin's upper level has a large master suite with king bed, and an adjoining sitting area - the perfect place to read, or just relax and take in this amazing setting. The master has a new full bath with a large jacuzzi tub, double sinks, and a walk-in closet.

The cabin's decor is done in comfortable Durango style furnishings, with artwork that boasts the wonderful wildlife and scenery that this area is known for. The high ceilings bring in lots of natural light.

The private Electra Lake can be accessed by registering at the gate; it's a great place for picnicking, fishing, and boating, and it's just 2 minutes away. There's also a seasonal restaurant right on the lake featuring gourmet food. Catch the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad just 1/4 mile away at the Rockwood Station. Durango Mountain Resort is just 5 minutes away. Ride the chair lift in the summer months and see the impressive 14,000 ft. San Juan Mountains. The Resort also has a popular alpine slide, climbing wall, and human maze.

Admit it, wouldn't you rather be here?

Wonderful family holiday cabin

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of four visiting from Bermuda and we loved the cabin and the area. The cabin and outside area were wonderfully clean and well stocked. The agents were great to deal and very prompt as answering my queries. I would agree with the previous review that the cabin would benefit from an extra arm chair as the seating would have been tight if our children were bigger. There is so much to do in the area and a couple of good places to eat within a five minute drive, our favourite was the Sows Ear. Should we ever return to Electra Lake we would definitely stay in the cabin again. Thank you !

Wonderful summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two teenage boys) stayed 4 nights at this lovely cabin.

The location was perfect - 20 minutes out of Durango and 3 minutes from Lake Electra. If your a fisherman it couldn't be in a better spot. Electra is a very large BEAUTIFUL lake and surrounding mountains - there is $15 per head fee for fishing (good for a full day). But hiking is free. Also a nice restaurant there. I pulled out a couple of 17 inch rainbows the first morning I fished there. Flies and lures only - limit 3 fish. Haviland Lake is just down the road and of course many fishing opportunities on the Animas and Florida rivers are close by.Though it is 20 minutes out of Durango - the drive is breathtaking on the Million Dollar Highway. There is a convenience store 5 minutes up the road toward the ski area for all the basic needs.

We loved the peace and quiet of the location. The cabin and grounds are, in a word, immaculate. The grounds are lush with flowers, grass, trees and plants. We spent many an hour on the beautiful deck in the cool evening. The cabin is very well appointed and beautiful in and out. My wife and I loved the loft master and the AC unit upstairs was a big help. The deep jetted tub was a hit - though we struggled a bit with plugging the drain. Also the hot water heater is a small one - so if you are 3-4 people you will want to space out use of hot water.

The kids were thrilled with the satellite TV and wifi. Perfect kitchen well stocked with cookware etc...

We were very comfortable there and it served as the perfect HQ for our trips to Mesa Verde, Silverton, Ouray etc... Good fit for a fmaily of four - any more than that would get a bit tight.

We would love to visit the area again and if so, we wouldn't hesitate to rent the Double J again!

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed at this home for five nights. It is a gorgeous property with beautiful views all around. We loved sitting outside and soaking up nature's beauty. The master suite upstairs was very comfortable and roomy, as was the downstairs bedroom. The living area was a little bit tight for four people since the only furniture, besides the kitchen table, was one couch. That was not a big deal since we were usually gone but when we did watch a movie at night someone had to sit in a wooden kitchen chair. The grill worked great as did all kitchen appliances. The coffee pot is very old, and does not have an automatic shutoff so be sure to turn it off before you leave. The kitchen had all cookware and utensils that we needed and we used the stove, oven and grill during our stay- all worked properly. The unit came with toiletries that you would find in a hotel room, toilet paper, paper towels, coffee filters, plenty of bedding and towels. Overall a fabulous property and I only held back a fifth star due to the limited seating in the living area.

Will Definitely Return!

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed closer to Durango we were looking for a cabin a bit higher up closer to Purgatory and Silverton. This Cabin was great, It was close enough to town that groceries were not an expedition and close enough to all the hiking trails for us. The House has a king bed upstairs and two twins in the second room. We did not use the sofa as there was only three of us. The Kitchen had enough pots and pans etc to make most food and plenty of towels sheets etc. Having Wifi was handy and appreciated at night. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is my son noted this was the only place in Colorado we have stayed that did not have a fire pit outside, which would have been a delight.

The road is no problem in the summer and could be driven by any car.

I would definitely recommend

Great winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful winter get-away. Great location, above snowline in early winter, enabling us to have a beautiful white Christmas. Easy access to great back-country skiing and winter sports at Purgatory and up higher on Molas Pass and Silverton. Manager of property super-responsive and property was well equipped. Super comfortable master bedroom suite! Great place to stay while visiting Durango family.

Thank you.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay--summer or winter it's close to the fun activities on offer at Durango Mountain Resort. In summer you can relax, BBQ and soak in the serenity as you gaze over the pond. As you found, in winter you can do some back country skiing and enjoy a traditional white Christmas. We are thrilled you all enjoyed yourselves. Thank you for taking the time to post a review--it's so helpful to those looking for a great place to stay when in Durango. It was truly our pleasure to serve you and we very much look forward to you returning for another stay! Thank you, The Reservations Team, Durango CO Vacations
