Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our week at the Bunkhouse. It was just far enough from town to be quiet yet close enough to be convenient. It was nice to see wildlife in the yard several mornings. Accommodations were as advertised. We would definitely stay there again.

Quiet, laid back! Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to go to unwind! Well taken-care of bunkhouse, with everything you would need for a weekend, or more! We had a great time, and were close enough to Durango to go out on the town if we wanted! Highly recommend. The owner was great with getting us directions to the place, and a list of "favorite things to do in Durango".

Beautiful Animas Valley Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so pleased with our stay at the Durango Bunkhouse! The views are quite spectacular that are accompanied by lovely peace and quiet. The accommodations were just perfect for a short weekend stay that allowed us to enjoy the comfort of a home cooked meal and relaxation in a spacious and warm home. Yet, we were only minutes away from the cool vibe of Durango..what a place! Overall, we loved our stay and hope to be back next time we are in Durango!

Very pretty and private property. Perfect for two or a small family. Would stay here again. Good

Guests should be warned about the treacherous steps leading to the Bunkhouse or a handrail should be installed. Not at all pleased with the $96 service fee HomeAway charged in addition to the cleaning fee. What is the service fee for?

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately I cannot control the VRBO fee as it goes to them, not me.

The setting is beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood is really nice and the outdoor setting is beautiful. The description on the website is really accurate. It was very comfortable and quiet. The Wi-Fi did not work and we did not have contact information (other than email, which we got no response) from the owner. Also, we wish the waterfall shown in the pictures would have been working. The temperature control and BBQ grill worked great. It was nice to have access to the garage. Great stay overall!
