About John Ryan

I am a 25 year Durango local. I feel I know the area very well and I know what guests are looking for when they come to Durango. I know who to rent ski/snowboard gear from. Discounts on ski/snowboard rentals available. Also group discount at Trimble Hot Springs and Rapp's Guide Service on horseback and sleigh rides. Who to raft with, horseback ride with and great golf spots. If you are looking for a casual dining spot or a nice dinner for you and you spouse I know where to go. I have traveled all over the country and you really cannot find a better spot than Durango.

Why John Ryan chose Durango

The homes are really set up perfectly for a vacation. The gameroom is a perfect addition to house so there is plenty to do while relaxing at houses. The guest house is just perfect for the larger groups. And the location is the crowning jewel. No neighbors next door. Incredible views and short drive to town and to ski resort. HOMES CAN BE RENTED SEPERATLY

Guestbook comments from the manager

Awesome location! Beautiful and Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best place that we have stayed on a ski trip. It is hard to find a place to accommodate 3 families that include 8 teenagers. It is spacious and has everything you need to cook meals, watch TV, play games, hike or just relax. The location is convenient for going to Durango and the ski resort. The layout of the house is perfect and very comfortable. We will be back this time next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the awesome review. We take a lot of pride in the Red Cliff Guest House. The location as you mentioned cannot be beat!! The size of the property and the fact we have the 2 houses only 100 feet apart work so well together for large groups. We really look forward to you all coming back next winter. Cheers, John

Red Cliff Guest House - Spring Break Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location and only minutes from Purgatory Ski Resort & Durango. There's a grocery/liquor store just down the road 5 minutes away. The directions to the cabin and procedure to access the houses were precise & accurate - no issues accessing either house. We had a large group of 15 and everyone was very comfortable...plenty of room!! The kitchen in the main house was outstanding and well stocked with everything that you would need to cook for a large group. The kids really enjoyed the game room downstairs which made it very quiet & relaxing for the adults upstairs. Beds were very comfy and there were plenty of towels in the bathrooms along with plenty of hot water...don't believe we ever ran out. John with the property management company was friendly, courteous, and most helpful during our stay. Overall.....a great find!! Very relaxing, quiet, and peaceful. I look forward to returning on our next ski vacation.

Fredricksbury, Va

Holiday / Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a fantastic time our family had at the Red Cliff Guest House. Property had everything we needed for a fun family vacation. Plenty of room to spread out after some incredible ski/snowboard days on the slopes. As advertised property is right between town and ski resort so some of our family could head to the slopes and some could head to town easily. The game room with the gas fireplace was perfect for family games at night and kitchen had plenty of space and everything we needed for our family meals. Views are incredible & John the property manager was very easy to work with. Want to come back and also rent smaller guest house so we can bring more people!!

Grateful Durango Friends Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better place to hold our reunion! Rented both houses for 5 days, Awesome 360 degree views. Large gathering spaces, the game room entertained the children, decks were the place to gather in the mornings & evenings. The houses were beautiful! I love the Red Cliff Guest House, we stayed in the Master and the view is incredible. I'm ready to take up residence at the Red Cliff House. John was great to work with. I still have a big could not have been better!
