Great location for couples or small family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at mount memories. Home was comfortable, clean, well equipped and up todate. Close to town but far enough away to avoid the crowds. Owner was gracious and love the banana bread prepared by Ms. Bonnie. Would recommend for a nice getaway.

This Place is Special

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this property is amazing. The owners, Bill & Bonnie, have literally thought of everything when they put this property together. The views are amazing and the hikes around the property are excellent. My wife loved seeing the horses everyday right outside the house. The property is a short drive to downtown Durango but it feels very remote once you get to the house. Also, you have Mesa Verde National Park and the Million Dollar Highway drive in the vicinity that you don’t want to miss. I’ve stayed in several VRBO properties over the years and they were all very good but this one is special. Thanks Bill and Bonnie for an amazing experience.

Stunningly gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we booked this place, we received nothing but great service. Bill made us feel very welcome and comfortable, showed us all around the property, and gave great recommendations on places to see and eat. The guest house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The views were stunning! We could not get over the quietness and loved being so secluded. Bill's property is gorgeous and great for exploring. We are definitely coming back to stay here in the future, and will recommend it to anyone!

Wonderful Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been more perfect, and we are not Typically easy to please. The home and our hosts Bill and Bonnie were wonderful. We had everything we needed for a home away from home, including a fully appointed kitchen - which is important to us since we cook a lot of meals at home for our 6 year-old with celiac. Both of our kids enjoyed feeding the owner's beautiful horses that were as friendly as their sweet dogs. The mountain views coupled with sunsets and sunrises were beautiful from the balcony and numerous windows of the guesthouse. The property was a short drive to everywhere we wanted to go in the Durango-area including hiking at the Colorado Trail, white water rafting and the train trip to Silverton. It was a fabulous family trip and we would stay with the Fleisch's again at Mountain Memories in a heartbeat.

Amazing Time

We enjoyed our stay here in Durango. The location was quiet, and had amazing views. We couldn't ask for a better host family either. Bill and Bonnie were such gracious hosts. I would recommend this location to anyone! Thank you for a memorable trip!

Beautiful, comfortable, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The hosts -- the owners the horses and the dogs -- were all very nice. The property and its views are awe-inspiring, and the location is second-to-none. The cabin was very comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended.
