Hi-speed internet.This cozy log home is located on 80 acres of pristine private land with fantastic views of the Southwest Rocky Mountains and the sacred Sleeping Ute Mountain! This property is only 25 minutes from Mesa Verde and only 90 minutes from the Telluride Ski Area! It is only 50 minutes from Durango!
The great room has floor to ceiling windows facing south with nothing but trees and rolling canyons as far as the eye can see! The kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs, or you can barbeque on the east covered porch with the gas grill. Downstairs there are two cozy bedrooms with double antique beds and a full bath. Located upstairs is the large private master bedroom, which has a king-size bed upon a custom log frame. Connected to the master bedroom is the master bath with a beautiful tiled shower. Central air conditioning and heating will keep you comfortable during any season.
After a day of exploring the ancient cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde (only 25 min away), relax in the six person Olympia Caldera hot tub. If you look hard enough you will find pottery shards, arrowheads, possible kiva sites and other scattered remnants of this ancient culture on the 80 private acres the home sits on. Please do not remove or disturb any of these artifacts.
If you long for peace and quiet, this is the place. The fall weather is gorgeous, the winters are mild and snow country is only a short distance away. The home rests on the edge of a series of tree covered canyons leading up to a spectacular view of the sacred Sleeping Ute Mountain. Not one other human made structure can be seen from the south deck of the cabin to the Sleeping Ute in the distance.

Was a great time! Nice to feel some sunshine! Beautiful and private! Lana was great!
The property was beautiful. Loved how secluded it was.
We picked the perfect cabin. We enjoyed our time there so much. We loved the hot tub and exploring. We did not want to leave.
Thanks Brandi for the great review on the Cabin. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and I'll look forward to having you come back to the Cabin or one of our other homes in the area in the near future!
All the best!
Loved this place. Landscape around the property is so beautiful and we were lucky enough to get snow
Nice house and great location. House was clean and very nice. Everything we needed in the kitchen. Quiet and relaxing which is just what we needed. Visited Mesa Verde and enjoyed seeing the dwellings.
Thanks Gina for the wonderful review on the Cabin. I was happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to be able to welcome you back in the near future!
All the best,
Beautiful cabin, beautiful views, no snow :(
The cabin was a delight and we had all we needed except for snow!
Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Cabin Rick! We've had a crazy year of weather... normally we have a ton of snow at this time. Oh well... you'll just have to come and see us again sometime! Thanks for being great guests.
All the best,
Great private getaway outside Cortez
The home was wonderful, tasteful and well-maintained.
Being on it's own acreage gave us a sense of privacy, as we would sit out on the deck watching the sunrise or sunset over Sleeping Ute Mountain, with nothing but ravens and bluebirds for company.
Even though it seems isolated, it really is not very far to Cortez, Dolores, Canyons Of The Ancients, Hovenweep, and Mesa Verde.
Highly recommend, and we can't wait to return!
What a nice review Art & Diane! Thanks for your thoughtfulness and also leaving the Cabin so neat and tidy for my housekeeper. I hope to be able to welcome you back to the Cabin or one of my other homes in Durango in the not too distant future!
All the best!
This cabin is fantastic. Five us of stayed and we were extremely comfortable. The cabin includes everything you need, and the notes all around are helpful so that you can find what you need and you'll know what to do. It's true - the views are amazing. The hot tub was lovely, especially at night under a full moon. The beds are decent, but not great. The master bedroom and bath are lovely. The surrounding area is so quiet you can only hear the breeze, and nothing else. We went to Mesa Verde and Four Corners, both easy to get to. Restaurants in Cortez were surprisingly excellent - never a bad meal. Would definitely stay there again. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Thanks for the wonderful review Elizabeth! I hope to welcome you and your family back to the Cabin or one of our other homes in Durango in the not too distant future...
All the best,
There is great hiking on the 80 private acres or drive a few minutes to the head of Sand Canyon and hike into 164,000 acres of public land. This area contains the highest known archaeological density in the United States. Portions of this undeveloped monument have more than 100 cultural sites per square mile-some individual sites cover 10 acres or more. From this location you can go east to Mesa Verde National Park 19 miles away or keep going to Durango 53 miles away. In Durango ride the narrow gauge train to Silverton or have an evening meal at the Bar D Chuckwagon [reservations required]. Travel north out of Durango to Durango Ski Resort, or keep going over the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton and Ouray. Next head to Telluride and ski down the beautiful snow packed slopes at Telluride Ski Resort. You can go south and gamble at the Ute Mountain Casino about 15 miles away. Visit the Ute Mountain Tribal Park where they give guided tours through their Indian ruins.
