About Dan Duncan, property owner

Dan grew up 7 miles northwest of current home. He is a retired pilot, who flew so he could farm and ranch. Norma just retired (5/2016) after 31 years of teaching. We have lived here 16 years, lived in Montana for 12 years and Las Vegas for 11 years.

Dan Duncan, property owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dan Duncan, property owner chose Southwest

This home was originally built because our son was an officer in the Marine Corps and it was his home when he came home for extended times. He is now located in Cortez, CO. Also, our extended family and friends who come to stay, enjoy the privacy.

We are centrally located to many of the main attractions in Southwest Colorado. The land we are located on have a view of the Sleeping Ute Mountain, the La Plata range, Blue Mountains and Lizzard Head.

Horse boarding facilities are available.

What makes this cabin unique

You will love the view, solitude, and the stars at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Norma and Dan,

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your very comfortable cabin. After driving 11 hours from west Texas, we were ready to relax. We will keep in mind your cabin for future trips to this area.

Overnight stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay for 1 night in your lovely cabin on our way to Oregon. So comfortable after a long day of driving. We definitely will keep it in mind for a future trip when we can stay longer. The location is great for visiting Southwest Colorado and Southeast Utah.

Always perfect

I have stayed on this property numerous times over the last few years. The cabin is spotless and contains everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. The owners are a hard working couple who are very friendly while respecting your privacy.

Can't ask for anything more

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the nicest places we've stayed in a long time. The cabin was a bargain with much more space than we needed. It had everything necessary to relax and enjoy Southern Colorado, even cinnamon and vanilla extract for our french toast breakfast! My wife, our dog, and I enjoyed the wide open spaces and the incredible endless vistas. We will need to return with more time to explore the area. The welcome gift was very nice and unexpected; we're now hooked on whipped honey! Dan and Norma are great people sharing a wonderful place.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Cabin worked great for our hunting party, It was clean and well maintained, Dan & Norma went beyond our expectations to make sure we had everything we needed. Also had a chance to meet some of the locals for happy hour in the barn. I've stayed in several VRBO's but never have had the opportunity to meet the Owners and establish a new friendship.
