TRAVELING WITH BABIES?
To make vacation more enjoyable for moms with babies and toddlers, at "Durango Dream Views" we offer 1 standard and 1 large pack n play, a folding highchair, an Alex Toys play mat, and Little People toys. There are also plenty of childrens books for all ages to read bedtime stories, and board games. We have a baby gate, and try to stock toddler dishes and spoons.
There is wi-fi, its speed is sufficient to play movies on the living room Smart TV and goes out rarely. While there are 3 TV's in our home, we like to "tune out" when on the mountain, and rarely use TV when there (maybe for an urgent football game or a dose of DIY). You will likely know more about the TV's and satellite than we do. The upstairs TV mounted above the fireplace is a smart TV and does have a DVD player and HDMI. All 3 TV's have Direct TV satellite service, yet note that satellite service can go out during heavy rain storms or snow storms that are on the way.
