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?

Cozy cabin in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family of four and our small dog. We loved the location about 25 minutes outside of Durango and only five minutes to Purgatory. We also enjoyed fishing on Lake Electra right down the road. The cabin was clean and well appointed with necessities. We really enjoyed the views from the back patio. We truly enjoyed our stay!

Stunningly beautiful

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautifully decorated and had everything we could possibly have wanted. You could see and feel the love and caring in the decor. The landscaping likewise was spectacular and carefullly thought out. The only drawback for us was that the downstairs beds are perfect for children but not so for older adults. Also I have a heart condition and the 8300' altitude was a challenge (something I would never have imagined).

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!
