Secluded Cabin with Great Hiking Nearby

  • 5 of 5

We loved how beautiful the cabin was, surrounded by Aspens and with the mountains so close. Also, there is a lot of great hiking nearby.

Owner's Response: This property is always a favorite! You can't beat the amazing location being surrounded by the tall pines with views of the beautiful San Juan Mountains. The cabin is fantastic inside and out making for the perfect mountain vacation.

Nice Cabin... No complaints.

  • 5 of 5

The hot tub and deck was a great way to spend some downtime. The location is great. It's only a few miles from Purgatory and right in between Durango and Silverton. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed to cook a few nice meals.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Home was very clean and well appointed. Bright and open with gorgeous views , very private and quiet. The deck is spacious and relaxing in the hot tub under the stars was truly peaceful and restorative. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Overall the stay was ok

  • 2 of 5

There were several issues with our stay.

1. The shower curtain in the down stairs bathroom smelled like mildew and was stained with hard water stains across the bottom. We replaced the shower curtain ourselves.

2. The freezer door on the refrigerator would not stay closed, it beeped and beeped and beeped until we propped a chair up against it.

3. The shower upstairs did not work. We did get a call 2 days after we arrived asking if the repair man could come and fix the shower, but we declined because we didn't want to be bothered by a repairman.

4. The hot tub was dirty, and several jets did not work on the hot tub.

5. We were not able to pull our truck in the garage. There was covered furniture in the garage which did not allow enough room for our truck.

6. The downstairs rooms at night get very hot, even if you turn the heat off. No wonder there's fans in every closet, you need them to cool off. We had to sleep with a window open & it was 17 degrees outside.

I hope the owner reviews this review, and is able to address these issues so the next person that stays does not have to deal with them.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that your experience was not 100%! I want to personally apologize for the above items, and let you know that we read every review, feedback, and also do a departure call after each stay-I wasn't able to catch you so left a voicemail. We like to do a departure call to follow up after a guests stay-we hope that they had a great time, but we also gather feedback at that time! We want to provide the best service and rentals for our guests. We have already addressed each of these items above-again thank you for passing them along. We would love to have you come back and stay and let us show you a wonderful experience! Thank You! Meghan Wells

Heavenly Daze a Mess.

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived at the property the dirty sheets from each bedroom were piled up. The kitchen was dirty. The cabin had not been cleaned. We called Durango Vacation Rentals four times over 3 hours and left messages. No one was available. We gave up and got a room at the General Palmer in Durango. We did receive a call later in the afternoon and we were assured we would have a full refund. The cabin is very nice and remote as expected. We were, of course, on vacation, and did not want to hassle with cleaning the cabin and we were concerned about other possible issues. Due to the experience we had I would not recommend the cabin to a friend. The listing description was accurate.

Owner's Response: We apologize that you arrived at the cabin and the clean had not been completed- we never want our guests to arrive this way! Of course we do not want to make excuses but wanted to give a bit of background as to why this occurred. Our housekeeper who has been with us for years, (and is one of the most detailed gals we know) had a family emergency that she had to leave for. Unfortunately she wasn't able to notify us, and in the midst of everything forgot that she had a few things to finish up. Upon inspection, the cabin was clean, but there were a few details to finish - it took less than an hour to finish up. We did offer to send someone immediately to finish up the cabin, but this guest declined. Heavenly Daze is such a lovely property, and guests come back again and again to stay-so we sincerely apologize that you were not able to experience how amazing this property is. We would love to have the opportunity to make this up to you-if you are ever in the area again we would love that chance. We do apologize that you had tried to call a few times during business hours-we pride ourselves on getting back to our guests in a timely manner. It sounds like you may had other issues that weren't listed that prevented you from staying with us since the offer to send someone up immediately was declined. We do hope you enjoyed your stay in Durango.

beautiful, relaxing, private

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice and comfortable with so many amenities! Usually, photos are better than the actual property, but not in this case! It was just as nice as it looked online. The house was very private with beautiful views and the hot tub was fantastic. We had just married and needed to relax right after and this is just what we needed.
