About the property

Two story 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Come relax and play among the southern mountains of Colorado. This 3 bedroom/2 bath cabin sleeps up to seven people and offers a great home base for your vacation plans. Enjoy the sound of nature from our deck or explore the nearby hiking trails, horseback riding, fishing and boating, or go into Durango for shopping, white water rafting, zip-lining or swimming. Maybe take a day trip to the Durango Mountain Resort, ride on the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, see the ruins at Mesa Verde National Park, or relax in the steamy pools at Pagosa Springs. With so many options, you are sure to please every family member.

In winter months, cross country ski throughout the neighborhood and trails around Lake Vallecito. For alpine skiing, our cabin is less than an hour to Durango Mountain Resort and 1.5 hours to Wolf Creek Ski Area.

About Joan Searcy

We are a multi-generational family from Texas who has owned the neighboring property for over 15 years. During the summer months, there is almost always a family member on site.

Joan Searcy purchased this house in 2009

Why Joan Searcy chose Southwest

The location cannot be beat for getting away from it all yet having access to it ALL!

What makes this house unique

Wild raspberries can be found between the house and the creek for the adventurous forager! Warning: kids fall in love with the great outdoors here and never want to leave :)

  • 5 of 5

our family history goes back a long way. Our stay was a sort of sibling reunion. The cabin was very nice and well equipped. All we needed was our food and clothes. Everything worked. There were no problems. Our week was enhanced by the owners being across the street while we were there. We became acquainted and found them to be friendly, kind, much like our Arkansas heritage relatives.We got to see what we went there for and could return to a really comfortable home at happy hour. We will use their home again when we go back to Colorado. Robert Dale Sun city West, Az
