About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

The Carriage House is a beautiful custom home located in a bustling part of historic downtown Durango. The house was completed in 2011 and was built to the highest standard of quality, with warm timber frame accents, radiant-heat floors, and stained concrete counters and sinks. In order to view a 3D virtual tour please copy and paste this link into your browser:

We own two other houses downtown: the Treehouse, a three-bedroom vacation rental that sleeps 10 (vrbo #312061) and the Durango Hideout that sleeps 10 in 4 bedrooms (vrbo# 1150651).

The Carriage house has three bedrooms, which are all located upstairs. The master has its own spacious bathroom and a king bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed. And the third bedroom has a queen bed and a small loft with a twin bed, which is perfect for kids or young adults. The entire second floor has gorgeous vaulted timber ceilings. Downstairs, there is a full bathroom, a great room, and the kitchen, which has bar seating, stainless steel appliances, and concrete counter tops. Outside, there is a front porch and a back patio, which is equipped with a grill and seating. Inside, the on-demand hot water system ensure you will always have plenty of hot water. The house is now equipped AC. We put individual units in the bedrooms and one in the living space so it will be plenty cool. This house is a legal and permitted vacation rental so there will be no troubles with your stay (project #2012-65, permit #12-033).

This is the perfect spot to enjoy the Durango lifestyle, as you are in a busy neighborhood within minutes of restaurants, shops, the bike path, the Animas River, and city parks. Sit on the front porch and watch the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Train rumble right by the house, or take a stroll on the river path that’s just a minute away.

LOCATION: Conveniently located downtown at 1503 B E 3rd ave.

Great place, would rent again!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to ski for a few days and this was a great place to stay. It was centrally located and near downtown. Short drives to the main strip on bars and restaurants and within walking distance to several places.

Our group was composed of 2 couples and 2 others. The loft area in the 3rd bedroom was great and allowed the 2 others to share a room and still maintain some privacy.

Overall, a cool well maintained house that we would stay in again. I like that we were able to instantly book and the process from check in to check out was very easy.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful. It’s a beautiful space that is well decorated and feels very unique and homey. The location is perfect- right next to the Animas River and Animas Brewery and a 10 minute walk to Main Street. Checkin was extremely easy. It was a perfect place for us to stay for a long weekend with friends and could very comfortably fit 3 couples. We would absolutely recommend this place and hope to come again.

Owner's Response: I discovered that the prior group removed the lower door pin hinge on the bathroom door. Which was causin the door to not open properly. I live a couple minutes from the house so I always encourage guests to let me know if something isn’t right at the house as I’m happy to fix any issues.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to everywhere in Durango. Walkable to the fish hatchery, discovery center, library, park and rec center so it is good for kids. Close to restaurants and shops in town. The kitchen has everything we needed to cook simple meals, and we were able to use the grill since the weather was mild for December. The house is well stocked with liquid soaps, shampoo and cleaning supplies and plenty of blankets , towels, and pillows . Parking spots in front are convenient.
