About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)
The open floor plan on the ground floor is all hardwood floors and includes a kitchen with granite countertops and a center island, a dining room which seats 6 comfortably, and a living room. Enjoy your family vacation as we do sitting around the gas fireplace in the living room with a leather sofa, loveseat, and chair with ottoman centered and a large flat screen TV. Living room includes a built-in desk so you can check in with work without ever leaving the living room. Also on the first floor is a conveniently located 1/2 bath, just off the kitchen, the 1 car garage (with a fold-away ping pong table). Easily access not only the back yard but patio with propane grill and outdoor dining furniture through a patio door in the kitchen. The second floor features 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, and washer and dryer. The master bedroom has a king size bed and private bathroom as well as a walk-in closet. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms share a full bathroom located between them. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and while the 3rd has a queen bed, desk, and office chair. Both also offer nicely sized closets. This open house is a perfect place for vacation gatherings and if you need overflow sleeping accommodations, one sofa in the living room can be converted to a bed. The yard is big enough to enjoy the green and fun with the kids but safely fenced on 3 sides - the only access to streets is to come to the front of the house and the cul de sac.
The location is ideal, on a quiet cul de sac far enough from Durango's lively downtown for quiet evenings on the patio and cool summer breezes with the bedroom windows left open, yet only a short walk from Durango's Recreation Center and River Walk. Durango's trolley can zip you to Durango's downtown with shopping and restaurants or you can bike, walk, or enjoy a short drive. You can run, hike, or mountain bike right from the house up Animas Mountain: climb to a beautiful view looking north up the Animas River valley. Or head out to Dalla Mountain Park or the Colorado Trail - 2 miles or so from the house - for mountain biking or hiking.
Please know that we're the real deal - this is our family's vacation home and we're looking to rent it to others who share our appreciation for Durango and Southwest Colorado. Our purpose in renting is to offset the costs of owning a vacation home, not to supplement our income with rental property. I will do my best to respond to your needs - see our reviews for the experiences of some of our renters. If you would like to be able to call someone local should you have questions or needs, or just want to transact your rental of our home through a commercial enterprise, we can run your rental through our property manager at an increased monthly rate (30%) to cover those costs.
Also, in case you are otherwise not aware, VRBO is changing their business model from one of a simple subscription online advertising website to more of a property management approach where they take a percentage of sales and offer renters additional services like travel insurance. For the present, we are still able to offer a simple rental process using a written and signed rental contract ( a Word document provided by email). The rates and fees you see in our VRBO ad are confirmed in the rental contract and exactly what you will pay. I can take credit cards as well for an additional 3%.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are an family of 5 that enjoys any and all outdoor activities: hiking, trail running, camping and backpacking, biking, skiing (XC and downhill), and canoeing and swimming. Our kids are 18, 15, and 8, and we live in Albuquerque, NM. I grew up in the Midwest and my wife is from the Northwest.
Why the Owner Chose Durango, CO, USA:
Like many, we were attracted to Durango summers with the many outdoor opportunities and events for families and active/outdoor people. We love spending our vacations in a small Colorado mountain town where you can bike to great restaurants, hike or run on cool mountain trails, or ride the Durango-Silverton train.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is on quiet, conveniently located cul de sac, and cooled by summer breezes descending the valley from the La Plata mountains. The location near the North end of Durango which means very easy access to the Colorado Trail and the Animas Valley - including Durango Mountain Resort (downhill skiing) and the beautiful San Juan Mountains beyond. We particularly enjoy our proximity to Animas Mountain Park with it's trails to 8500' and fabulous views while still being able to walk to the Recreation Center or the River Walk.
