connie 720-998-7272 purchased this cabin in 2005

Why connie 720-998-7272 chose Southwest

After camping around Lake Vallecito for many years, and staring at this historical cabin next to Graham Creek Campground. I knew that place could be my heaven here on earth. Back when it was just a bunk house for the ranch hands working the cattle ranch where Lake Vallecito exists today. In the years that followed rooms were added, including a kitchen. You can still look around and see some original walls and décor. The property is a half-acre however completely surround by BLM and National Forests . The most spectecular view of the Needle Mountains and the Lake.

What makes this cabin unique

We offer a paddle boat, two new kayaks, hot tub, canoe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow what a Beautiful Place. The views from the upper deck were so fantastic. The forest is all around you. We walked right out of the Cabin to the Lake. Fishing was good. Our Dogs had a blast ! The Cabin is quaint and has everything we needed. Hot Tub at night you can see the stars unlike the city. Our only complaint is we couldn't stay longer.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Search no more, this place is the best you'll find in Lake Vallecito! (And I did my homework with days of searching websites.)

The location is ideal for a quiet remote getaway, but still only a 1/2 hour drive to Durango. We loved having a private beach just steps away and the hot tub was a plus on those chilly mountain evenings. The views are breathtaking and the outdoor space has tons of seating so you can enjoy the lake from several areas in the yard.

The bed and furnishings were all very comfortable with lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the views. The owners were extra accomodating and attentive to our needs. They have furnished their cabin with all the amenities you need plus lots of cool extras - a heated, bidet toilet seat, TV's in every room, paddleboat, grill, gas firepits, etc.

Be sure to visit Ska Brewery in Durango - free tours at 4 PM (We are big fans)! Also take a drive out to Mesa Verde and up to Silverton (or ride the train.) Lots of fun things to do in this area for families. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Amazing quiet lakeside cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was an older cabin, but very clean! The views were amazing off of either deck facing the lake. The bonuses of a jacuzzi on one deck and canoes/kayaks for your private use was wonderful. The house is locate at the end of a dirt road just past a campground - so was extremely quiet, which I greatly appreciated. There are a few restaurants around the lake which made for nice, quick, and easy get aways when we didn't feel like cooking. A wonderful retreat and we'll come back to do it again! - Debbie

If you are looking for a perfect summer location getaway, this is the place. The location is spectacular. The cabin itself is a bit quirky but it had everything we needed and kept us warm at night. We spent so much time outside either on the deck, in the yard, or down at the lake that we hardly were inside. The lake toys (canoe, paddle boat, and multiple kayaks were definitely a plus!

Beautiful location! Everything you need for a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Connie had everything available including peddle boat and kayaks. Hot tub was the perfect way to end the day. The bathrooms were on the small side but that was doable. Would recommend this property for 4-5 people. We had a great time.

Great Cabin with an Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this quaint little cabin by the lake. The view of the snow capped mountains that sit behind the lake was stunning. Being from Texas we thoroughly enjoyed the cool brisk mornings and no humidity and took full advantage of the kayaks, canoe, paddle boat, and hot tub....especially the hot tub. The cabin is located close enough to Durango so that you can enjoy all that it has to offer (White water rafting, Narrow Gauge Railroad to Silverton, etc.) but is still far enough away that it gives a sense of seclusion.....peace and quiet! We just wished we had more time.....really hated to leave!!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two adults and two littles) and dog had such a good time at this cabin! The kids played and played in the sand. We enjoyed the hot tub multiple nights under the stars. The weather was perfect. Durango is close. We enjoyed some great seafood and burgers. Many great little shops to explore as well! We canoed a couple times and enjoyed hiking the beach area with literally no one else around. Peace and quiet. Just what we needed! The cabin was clean and ready for us when we arrived! The scenery was beautiful!!
