About the property

Why Joan Searcy chose Bayfield

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 :)

It is as advertised, clean, quite, comfortable, easy access.

  • 5 of 5

We were kind of late getting to the cabin, no sooner had we pulled up than Tom (Jean's husband) came to make sure everything was OK, they had already unlocked the front door and were expecting us. After I talk to my crew we will most likely stay there again next year when we come back for our National Run.

A Perfect Cabin after 3 Nights of Camping!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming cabin nestled in the beautiful San Juan National Forest! We really enjoyed our stay here and were sad when it was time to leave. The kiddos enjoyed the bunk bed and having the entire upstairs to themselves. The drive to Durango is only about 45 minutes and a very easy one. We will stay here again in the future - thanks for a lovely time!

The cabin was just what we needed after camping for 4 days. Quiet and showers. Very relaxing and we enjoyed hearing the river at night.
