Best HomeAway Ever

  • 5 of 5

100% pleased with our stay at Castle Rock. Sometimes pictures make properties look better than they actually are -- this one doesn't do it justice. Shannon was a great host and the home was wonderful for making memories for our 3 families. The game room upstairs is perfect for a group of tweens, each bedroom was a master in any other rental. The yard was beautiful and the kids loved having the space to build forts and practice the skiing and snowboarding after lessons. We popped by quickly on the way into Durango one day and there wasn't water -- by the time we returned home after our errands, Shannon had already been there and everything was good to go. Hope to return in the future. Thank you for allowing our group to make some priceless memories.

Perfect for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family gathering. It was perfect. There were no bad bedrooms - each was like a master suite.

Many houses this big lack character or are not well built. This one is top of the line in every way. Worth the splurge! Beautiful views, privacy, and easy access in and out of Durango. We had no complaints whatsoever.

Amazing Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family wanted a special place to spend a white Christmas. We certainly found it in this property. The house was amazing. The views spectacular--every room had one. There was snow everywhere and the kids loved sledding and building snowmen. The rooms were huge and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped to host our holiday meal. The owner was always accessible to answer questions. He even add Christmas decorations for us. Thank you for making us feel at "home" for our 1st Christmas away from home.

Making memories

  • 5 of 5

100% pleased with our stay at Castle Rock. We ranged in age from 8-79 and it was perfect for all of us. The 79 year old uses a walker and this home was a perfect fit. Sometimes pictures make properties look better than they actually are however, this definitely was not the case here - what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get - beautiful home!!! Owner was extremely helpful and honest. Hope to return in the future. Thank you for allowing our family to make some priceless memories.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home exceeded all expectations for our spring break vacation. The house was beautiful and comfortable. The views of the Colorado mountains were truly amazing. I would highly recommend the house for a group who are vacationing together and want the best of everything! Thanks to the owner for sharing with us!

Wow! Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

Shannon thanks so much for sharing your home with us the week of 8/08 thru 8/15. Your home is absolutely beautiful! The views are amazing and the kitchen was so well stocked, from dishware to spices. We especially enjoyed just relaxing on the patios and the views of Potatoe Mountain. Durango is a neat little town with lots to do. The weather was perfect ... slept at night with the windows open and were very confortable during the day time. We loved that the house was easily accessible to Mesa Verde and Telluride. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for adventure and beautiful scenery. Wow!... such a stress reducer looking at the San Juan Mountains!
