About The Owner

OWNER'S PROFILE: Welcome to Dalton Ranch and Durango Dreaming. We hope you enjoy this perfect spot to spend your vacation time as much as we do. To ensure all your needs are taken care of during your stay, our property manager, John Ryan, will be available to help in any way.

MANAGERS PROFILE: My name is John Ryan and I am a 22 year resident of Durango with 16 of those years living in the Hermosa valley. I know the Durango area very well and can help you set up any activities you and your family or friends will want to do. I know the local favorites for dining, and the hiking and biking trails for you to enjoy. I live in the Hermosa valley because it is the most beautiful spot in Durango; close to town to go and enjoy yet you can drive to the valley to get away from the hustle and bustle of town. The home is located on an incredible semi-private golf course. I am a member so come play a round of golf with me. I can help with discounts for skis at Cliffside Ski, and snowboard rentals at the one and only Bubbas Boards. I can also help with discounts for group entry at Trimble Spa and Natural Hot Springs. Let me help you set up your vacation to our incredible town of Durango.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks John for such a great place to stay! This house is awesome and the views are great! I have two teenage boys and it was nice for all four of us to be able to spread out! The location was perfect as a "home base" for us. We went to Mesa Verde, hiked in Ouray, check out Durango's downtown shopping, and even had lunch in Telluride. We loved exploring the southern part of your state and hope to make it our home too as soon as we get these boys off to college.

A great place to stay in Durango

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 4 days for a spring skiing vacation. The house is located about 25 minutes from Purgatory and about 10-15 minutes from Durango. The house itself is clean, well-maintained, and the kitchen is very well stocked with everything from a pancake gridle to a crockpot. The couches and fireplace in the living room make it a comfortable place to relax after a day on the slopes. We didn't use the back patio, but there is one with a BBQ and an outdoor dining set. The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us. The bathrooms are stocked with big, fluffy towels, and the extras like additional rolls of toilet paper, soap, and things like that were appreciated so we didn't have to make a trip to the store after our long drive to Durango.

John was easy to deal with and answered all my questions. There was some confusion about the pricing when I made the reservation, but he worked with me to quickly fix the problem.

I would highly recommend this rental. We hope to come back in the future.

Relaxing Getaway

We enjoyed staying in this lovely house, with all the amenities of home. The house was very beautiful and comfy. The best part was grilling on the back porch while enjoying the mountain views.
