About the property

House – 3 Bedrooms + Loft + 3 Baths + Studio apartment w/kitchen and bath (slee

This beautiful property is the best of both worlds. It is just minutes from fine dining and shopping in Historic Downtown Durango or 20 minutes from hitting the slopes at Durango Mountain Resort at Purgatory. The property is as close to town as you can get, while stilling feeling like you’re in the mountain wilderness.

The unique house, with studio apartment, are nestled between large pine trees and situated in the Animas Valley with gorgeous views of the red rock Folsom Ridge. The complex is private and serene, but has many amenities very close by. Within walking distance from the house, is a Durango Transit trolley stop which can get you downtown in just ten minutes for $1.

Cozy is another theme for this mountain getaway. An open floor plan gives the home a flow from kitchen, through the dining room and into the living room. This house is perfect for dinnertime and entertaining large groups; featuring a wet bar, a dining room table that seats eight and a table in the sunroom that seats six.

The living room has a wood-burning stone fireplace and an over-sized window seat. The living area and bedrooms have original hardwood floors, while the kitchen, sunroom, mudroom and bathrooms all contain ceramic tile floors. The vaulted, wood-plank ceiling and exposed beams bring the living area together.

The large kitchen contains luxury Dacor dual convection wall ovens, a Dacor six-burner gas stovetop, granite and ceramic tile countertops, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker and water dispenser, microwave, Keurig and traditional drip coffee systems, along with heated floors to keep your toes toasty warm. Attached to the kitchen is a sunroom, which is the perfect place to sit and have a cup of tea or coffee and read in the morning sun. A separate exterior side entrance opens up into the mudroom, with an in-floor grate for wet boots, hooks for numerous coats and heated floors; the perfect room for gear storage and doggy hang out.

The house has three bedrooms, including a spacious master suite. The suite is separated from the rest of the house, giving it a more intimate feel. It is comprised of a romantic gas stove/fireplace, lofted wood ceilings, exposed beams and a sizeable master bath with heated towel rack. The master also includes a loft, which can sleep two adults or three children. This loft is ideal for a kid’s hideaway. The other two bedrooms are good-sized, with queen beds and plenty of storage. One of the bedrooms can serve as an office space, with antique roll-top desk, wireless printer/scanner/copier capabilities and a high-end therapeutic memory foam pullout couch/bed. There is also a full bath and a ¾ bath.

A quaint detached studio is located above the garage and can sleep four people. It has a queen-sized bed, along with a pullout couch with a comfortable queen built-in air mattress, a bathroom with shower and small eat-in kitchen. Includes remote-controlled gas stove/fireplace.

Enjoy your downtime in our outdoor spa. Relax in the 6-person hot tub or sweat off a day’s worth of activities in our 6 person custom-built sauna. When temps get too high, cool off under the outdoor shower/cold plunge. The spa is located conveniently via stairs right outside the master suite bath and also accessible from the downstairs living area. Do some outdoor cooking on the stainless steel grill or roast marshmallows at the fire pit in the yard, under the vibrant stars. There is even a tree-hung swing for the kids to play on in the large, fenced yard.

This Durango Retreat is the perfect destination for your family and group getaway!

*Please note we usually do not book the home more than 6 months in advance.

**Winter months AWD/4WD/chains recommended.

About Brittany Cupp

Hi, we're the Cupp family. We live on a lake in NE Indiana but have always had a love for Colorado and the mountains. Our daughter Brittany moved to Durango in 2003 to attend Fort Lewis College and our love for Durango began then. Since then we purchased the property and have been frequent to the area. Brittany and her bf Logan live in the adjoining house and manage the property. Both Brittany and Logan are Fort Lewis Alums have lived in Durango for over a decade. Thier wealth of knowledge of the area provides helpful insight for guests who want to explore Durango and it's surroundings like a local.

Brittany Cupp purchased this house in 2010

Why Brittany Cupp chose Durango

Durango has it all- a vibrant community based around an outdoor paradise tucked within beautiful surroundings. Because of the many living quarters and the size and serenity of the land, our property provides the best that Durango has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Besides the accommodations of the houses, the property itself is fully landscaped and in the summer month filled with flowers and fruit trees.

Great Family Vacation

We had a great time. Plenty of room for three generations to spread out. Logan was great if we had any questions. We plan to go again next year. Thanks.

A Perfect Place for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place just outside of Durango near many excellent outdoor adventures. The house and studio apartment were well equipped and comfortable. Our family of 12 ranged in in age from 11 to 73 and everyone felt it was great. The property managers were very friendly and helpful. It was a good choice for us.

Beautiful house - wonderful Manager

  • 5 of 5

The entire family really enjoy the house. The forest fire didn't help the situation,

but the family had a wonderful time at the Wedding. We had hoped to use the

Trimble Hot Springs but the fire was just to close to the pool.

We really liked the hosts, Brittany and Logan, they kept us inform of the fire status.

The facilities were outstanding, but the fire kept us from using the hot-tub and sauna.

I left a flashlight and bottle opener in the kitchen.

The beautiful stonework and eclectic decor was fantastic.

Beautiful home, fully stacked and perfect for a multi-family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house over New Year's for an extended family vacation with multiple families, including small children. The house was perfect for us -- a great location close to Purgatory and Durango attractions and fully stacked with everything we could possibly need for the stay. We appreciated the little touches, like kitchen gadgets and spices for family meals, great shampoo in the shower, and beautiful decor throughout (everything from antique sewing boxes to musical instruments). I highly recommend the home.
