About Jane Hopper
My husband and I purchased our property in Durango, Colorado in 1998. We look forward to our eventual retirement in Durango. We built our home there in 2004-2005, and try to visit as often as we can with family. We have four wonderful children, two loyal dogs, and three precious grandchildren.

Why Jane Hopper chose Durango
Durango is beautiful and very diverse. There are plenty of things to do regardless of the season you visit. Our house is 11.5 miles east of the town of Durango. The house sits on a south facing slope above a beautiful valley. We have plenty of sunshine in the house all year long!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Although we have the peace and quiet of the country, we are close enough to town that grocery shopping, dinner out, or the movies are all easy. Durango has a variety of excellent restaurants and the Main Street shopping is great. There is also a mall with Pottery Barn, Sears, Bed, Bath & Beyond, etc. There is a Wal-Mart and a Home Depot. Mesa Verde National Park is an hour west of the house. Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory Ski area) is 40 minutes north. The Animas River has great fishing and rafting and runs right through town. There is a terrific river trail that goes through town for walking, jogging or biking. Durango has a great Community Center with workout equipment and a really fun indoor pool and climbing wall. The day fee is very reasonable and kids 9 and over can be dropped off.

A Beautiful Home Away From Home
This home is by far the most beautiful place we have stayed in, when visiting the Durango area. Our entire family was able to stay comfortably, and besides groceries, everything you would need, or want was available. One of the most beautiful Christmas mornings to wake up to. To walk the property and look out over the mountains, and actually see local wildlife, was breathtaking. You feel like you are worlds away from everything but a short drive into town puts you right in the middle of so much to do and see. It was truly an unforgettable week, and Mrs Jane made sure it was stress free for us as well. She was just a phone call away if we had a question, or a silly problem, such as ten adults in the house and no one thought to grab a house key on the way out. Thank you Mrs Jane for being so gracious and making us feel at home.
This was a perfect place for our family vacation.
The home is lovely and has all the necessities for a family week together. The kids loved their own special area and the adults could relax and visit or just hang out. It was easy to fix some meals at the house or have some meals in town. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with.

Beautiful mountain retreat
Beautiful winter retreat. The setting is just perfect for the snow lover. My extended family of 10 has rented the Cercos Mountain Retreat 3 times for a winter ski trip and we have never been disappointed. The house is perfect for multi-families and the owners are wonderful to work with.
