Thank you for accommodating us. We were a group of 12 and even with that had plenty of room for fun. This is our second time staying at this place and it never fails to impress us in every way!!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great property for our large family. Everyone had plenty of space to spread out! Sitting next to the Anamias River is amazing especially in the cool morning with your coffee. We loved sitting in the hot tub in the cool evenings. Even with no AC the house was plenty cool in August. The house was close enough to downtown Durango and had everything we needed. I my suggestion would be to have a basketball that holds air. The kids played every night and had to air it up everyday.

We had a few issues and they came out and fixed it immedialty. Great property we will be back.

We absolutely loved everything about this home!

We enjoyed this home and it was perfect for two families of 5 and grandparents! It was peaceful and beautiful and the kids loved playing outside near and in the river and on the lawn. There was plenty of room and wonderful amenities and we can't wait to stay there again!

Fun Durango House!

  • 5 of 5

The Animas River flows in the front yard and the backyard of this incredibly located home! Upon walking in this house we knew immediately that we would be comfortable here and we would enjoy ourselves. And we did! The owners have taken great care in providing a well-stocked kitchen, beautiful stainless steel appliances, several dining areas, a large BBQ in the back, and surround sound, too! After assessing the kitchen and living area we were lured out the back door to follow the path to the river where there is a fire pit encircled with Adirondack chairs. During our stay, we enjoyed this stunning river vignette nightly, while either smoking cigars (from a great smoke shop in town), cooking s’more, or sipping wine. We played several games of “horse “on the full basketball court, we savored picnics on the grass under some of the many shade trees, we “Jacuzzied” as we gazed at the constellation, and barbequed grass fed meat and accompanied with organic garden greens, and yummy cheeses from the nearby James Ranch….

The proprietors have furnished this spacious house with all of the creature comforts including a large and cozy master bedroom with a balcony and many windows….that we left open at night to be lulled to sleep by the river.

It was just the 2 of us for a romantic get a way, we were sad to leave, and will forever cherish the memories we created here. We promised ourselves we would return soon to enjoy a bicycle ride on one of the many bikes, use the fishing poles to cast a line, and explore more of the fun of Downtown Durango! Our next visit, we will bring our family and friends to revel in this retreat! We highly recommend this for anyone who appreciates the great outdoors with the addition of the many comforts of home!
