About the property

City of Durango Permit #11-183

Situated on a huge lot, in the heart of Downtown Durango, the Wild Horse Guesthouse is only five blocks from the Durango & Silverton Train Station.

This two bedroom one bath house is uber comfy. Full of light, and decorated in what we call Modern Cowboy style. All the luxuries of a boutique hotel await: claw foot tub, tile shower, new memory foam beds, fine linens, and an American Leather Comfort Sleeper couch in the living room. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom, and a queen in the second bedroom. Then the Queen Sleeper couch and a nice full sized futon in the living room. Four beds total.

The kitchen is complete with real knives, gas range, full sized refrigerator, island, and all the dishes and pans you could want. Open floor plan lends itself to family gatherings. There is A/C in the summer and a beautiful gas fire place in the winter.

The front yard is fully landscaped with a nice cool lawn to play on and a covered porch with furnishings. The porch is new and with post and beam construction under a rusty metal roof is is super stylish. Being on the north side of the house in the summer it is a great place to eat al fresco.

The back yard is huge and surrounded by a privacy fence. There is even a doggy door to the side yard that leads to the back yard. Woof.

Location is where it is at: half a block from the River Walk trail to Santa Rita Park, a short walk to Durango Natural Foods Co-Op our great local grocery, Horse Gulch Trail System, the Train Station, coffee and breakfast places, and of corse all the downtown restaurants and shops just a short walk away.

The Wild Horse Guesthouse, a beautiful place for your family to explore Durango.

About Holly Jason

My husband Ben and I started doing Vacation Rentals so that I can stay home with our son Luca who is now 2 years old. I have a business degree from Fort Lewis College and have lived here in Durango for over 18 years. With a professional background in Design, I have had a ton of fun decorating the guesthouses in my own Modern Cowboy style. Clean and Beautiful. That is how I like it.

Holly Jason purchased this house in 2001

The house was very clean, beds were comfortable, and yard was perfect for our dogs. We loved that we could easily walk to the downtown area. We would definitely stay at this place again!

Awesome Home, Quiet Street, Has Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was a delightful house. Tastefully decorated, clean and very comfortable. It had every single thing we needed for our stay in Durango. Very close to the main street of town where all the restaurants and shops are. Great WiFi, TV, kitchen and lovely bathroom. Awesome shower. The beds were CRAZY COMFORTABLE! The neighborhood was quiet and lovely. There was a trail one house down that takes you to the river. I ran the trail each day and was so happy to have that right there. The whole process to rent, get in, etc. was so easy. A++++. You will not be disappointed with this darling house.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Wild Horse. We have stayed here several times throughout the years. The location is fantastic. The home is well equipped with anything you need. The beds are super comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet. Holly is a wonderful person that makes sure every need is met. She puts a lot of thought and special touches in the house which do not go unnoticed. The fact she allows dogs is also an extra bonus. There is a very big back yard.

Great property, convenient location

We enjoyed our stay in Durango. Of course the best attraction was that our granddaughter was only a block away from this property!

A warm and charming home

  • 5 of 5

Although our reason for being in Durango was difficult, it was wonderful to have such an inviting wonderful home to come back to during the days. I cannot think of anything we needed - the house was stocked throughout from a fully functioning kitchen to lavender shampoo and conditioner in the shower :-) Thank you Holly and Jason for helping to make our experience in Durango this weekend as best as it could be under the circumstances.

Only five blocks to the Train Station. One block from the River Trail that leads to Santa Rita Park and the River. Seven blocks to our Local Food Co-Op Grocery store. Easy walk to tons of great restaurants and shops. This house is on the last street in town so there is not a lot of traffic.
