Increíble beautiful place and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful. Is very pretty and well thought inside. However it's best features are the amazing views from all the windows. Is just amazing. We spent one night in the desk just watching the stars. It was the most relaxing and amazing experience and stay.

Blessed from Texas

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were able to enjoy beautiful Durango, Southern CO., and the amazing Animas River valley from this tranquil retreat just minutes from town. Enough away to really enjoy the mountains undistracted, close enough to make it to the slope - should we desire, and near enough to Durango to experience the Colorado of old. So much to do or, yet, to do nothing at all - this retreat was the perfect place for us. Clean, quaint and with all modern conveniences, we will be glad to stay here again. THIS was Colorado at its finest!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The guesthouse was very comfortable and a good size for the four of us. Views were beautiful and the patio dining was a perfect fit. Thank You!

Was perfect for us!!!

  • 5 of 5

On our motorcycle trip through the Rockies, we stayed two nights in Durango at this bunk house. The studio appartment design was extremely comfortable for the five of us. Near enough to town to be there in a few minutes...and far enough outside of town to feel like we're deep in a mountain valley. We will definetly look to return as 1. Durango is one of my favorite towns in teh mountains...and 2. The price, location, and comfort was perfect for us. Thanks Bill!

Quiet escape close to town

  • 5 of 5

The Bunkhouse is a great place for a couple or small family-full of amenities and nice views out from the deck. The property is beautifully landscaped and nestled into the red cliffs only a few minites drive into town. It is a roomy alternative to a hotel for anyone wanting a sense of quiet solitude with the convenience of being close to downtown.
