Picture a cozy log cabin situated in the scenic San Juan Mountains and whether its summer or winter you have the perfect Colorado vacation site!
It is a serene place where you are able to enjoy the amenities of Purgatory Ski and Summer Resort and the historic town of Durango without the crowds and noise.
This is a real log cabin nestled in a beautiful heavily wooded area near two high mountain lakes but close to Durango (20 minute drive in the summer) and 12 minutes south of Purgatory Resort. The closest lake is Electra Lake which is a 20 min hike or 5 minute drive. We even have a canoe with car carrier that you can use! The fishing is great and there is a wonderful restaurant right on the lake open in summer.
The cabin has three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with a twin bed and a set of bunk beds) with cozy down comforters and comfortable mattresses) plus two baths. The downstairs queen bedroom has a flat screen T.V. and views of the woods. (Watch for deer or elk!)
There is also a flat screen T.V. in the living room as well as an IPod/IPhone dock for playing your own music. A portable DVD player is available for your favorite movies. We have a small library of books and movies for your use.
Sit in front of the fire or soak in the hot tub under the stars. There are no street lights so the night skies are just amazing! Enjoy the mountain serenity while dining outside on the patio. A gas BBQ is available in summer to cook up all the fish you catch!!
A full kitchen and washer & dryer offer all the comforts of home.
A short 7-12 minute drive takes you to the Purgatory Ski and Summer Resort, home to some of the best Nordic and Alpine skiing in the Rockies. How about a romantic sleigh ride and then cozy dinner, snowmobiling, snowshoeing or simply reading in front of the fire.This winter wonderland is perfect for relaxing or enjoying winter sports.
In the summer, the area comes alive with scenic chair lift rides, alpine slides, music festivals, and world class mountain biking. Look out your front windows of the cabin for a wooded aspen and pine view with a backdrop of mountains. Visitors love that this northern area of Durango is often 8-10 degrees cooler in the summer than downtown Durango! This charming cabin is surrounded by hundreds of miles of scenic hiking and biking trails where wild flowers, waterfalls, and wildlife abound.
Perhaps you would enjoy white water rafting, world class fly fishing or golfing. Or take a ride on the famous Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad to the historic Silverton, a charming mining town in its heyday. Visit Gold Mines... Ghost Towns... 'Go Jeeping' on Incredible Mountain Passes! Serenity and beauty surround you!

About Kimberly Mackey
I, Kimberly, came to Durago in 1993 to recuperate from a car accident at my high school friend's bed and breakfast. I had plans to return to the corporate life in FL but fell in love with this darling mountain town and lifestyle. I bought a Deli at Purgatory Ski Resort in 1995. This was a quite an adventure for me since my background was in business and healthcare. But a great decision since I met my future husband "Mac" Mackey. He was retired and was living his dream as ski instructor. We both had years of working and playing at this wonderful ski resort. Eventually, we started our vacation rental property management company and at times managed up to 27 properties. We have semi retired now and just manage our own properties. We are enjoying our "backyard" of incredible beauty and the historic and wonderful Durango. After big city living (Chicago for Mac and Miami and San Francisco for me) - we think we are in paradise!
Why Kimberly Mackey chose Durango
We purchased this cute log cabin approx 20 years ago. This was one of those hard to find log cabins in the woods. Its location in the the beautiful north county area was perfect. We both dreamed of a log cabin in Colorado mountains. This is it!
What makes this Cabin unique
The Mackey Log Cabin is a perfect 4 season property. Only 6 miles from the ski resort - it offers a winter wonderland. In summer, the 5 minute drive (or 20 minute hike) to beautiful Electra Lake makes it ideal. While only 20 minutes from downtown Durango, it is often 8-10 degrees cooler than downtown and is surround by beautiful woods and scenic mountains.

This home had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in the mountains. The owners are very thoughtful and give complete information in advance regarding what supplies will be there upon arrival so that you can plan what to bring.
It was a beautiful cabin in a awesome setting! The view from the living area was spectacular!
Beautiful and comfortable cabin. Loved the wood burning stove and hot tub! Cabin site and surrounding area was beautiful and serene!
Comfortable, well equipped quiet cabin with plenty of space for the two of us. A perfect winter getaway. Enjoyed building fires in the wood stove which really kept the cabin warm and the views were beautiful. The location midway between Durango and Purgatory is great and it is high enough that we got snow even when Durango did not. The snow plow did a great job clearing the driveway for us! Kimberly was very responsive. We look forward to visiting again.
Lovely family getaway!
We had a great time staying at his lovely cabin. There were 6 adults in our group and the home accommodated us very well. The cabin was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped, we loved the wood burning stove and hot tub. The bed linens were very nice and we all felt we had adequate privacy and space from one another. I would definitely recommend this cabin. We were given permission to also bring our dog which was very nice. We truly had a wonderful family weekend winter retreat.
Great cozy cabin!!!
Great quiet cabin! Close enough to Durango to drive back and forth and not far up to Silverton either. Loved the wood burning stove and the hot tub. Kimberly was great to deal with!
My husband and I try to visit Durango each fall. This year we stayed at the Mackey Cabin. Perfect size for the two of us. Very cozy and well appointed. Wonderful log furnace that heats you up quickly! Hot tub was easy to operate and loads of mule deer for photographing. Very quiet and peaceful. Kimberly was very accommodating and very nice. We initially had some concerns regarding our pets but Kimberly cared enough to call us to address our concerns. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
