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.

Peaceful refuge

  • 5 of 5

Brought our family of 4 here for a few days of relaxation - and it didn't disappoint. The views are quite possibly the very best in Durango, if not Colorado. It is the most quiet, peaceful retreat you'll ever experience. The owners are very gracious, the horses are so friendly you'll think they're big dogs. And the dogs on the property will steal your heart. Five stars all the way! We had a great time.

This place was great

  • 5 of 5

We have a fabulous time staying here. This location was fantastic. The view was amazing and so close to town. Easy to get everywhere. The cabin is the top floor of a barn that it beautifully finished and had everything we needed. It even had toys and books for our three year old to play with. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the sunset after putting our daughter to bed. In the morning we looked forward to seeing the horses and giving them alfalfa.

Bill and Bonnie were wonderful and caring hosts and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed talking with them and staying in their beautiful cabin. They have done a wonderful job with the property. They even found our daughter a Thomas the Tank Engine shirt when they found out how much she loved trains. They gave good and easy advice for where to go to town and the surrounding activities.

We would recommend this accommodation to all of our family and friends and hope to come back soon ourselves!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week here with our 3.5YO twins and everybody loved it. Property is very clean and beds are comfy. They also provide more creature comforts than other rentals we've stayed at. The owners of the property were very nice and helpful but definitely gave you privacy. The boys loved feeding the horses each day and hunting for chipmunks. Views were amazing and just a short 10-12 min drive into town. Our previous stays in Durango were much further from town (closer to Purgatory) so we could enjoy the peace and quiet and have views. The CO trail is also just at the bottom of the hill. We just did a short portion with the boys but it was lovely and follows a creek. Something all ages and mobility can enjoy. I look forward to coming back here again!!

Colorado Dream Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mountain Memories was outstanding in EVERY way!! We couldn't have asked for a better location, high atop a mountain with truly the BEST views in Durango, yet close to downtown and surrounding outdoor activities. Bill & Bonnie were fabulous hosts - friendly, welcoming and generous. The guest house was immaculate and well equipped with all the comforts of home. Having the opportunity to feed and pet their 2 friendly horses was icing on the cake for us and our horse-loving 12-year-old daughter. We consider it a privilege to have experience a piece of this mountain paradise and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for the quintessential Colorado get away. Many, many thanks to Bill & Bonnie!! We are now back in Austin, 'Colorado Dreamin' of the next time we can head to the mountains!

Phenomenal

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place, both inside the property and outside. Well stocked kitchen, large bathroom and bedrooms, and extremely friendly dogs and horses! Hiking trails right on the property, with neither neighbors nor traffic to interfere with the beauty of the area. It is only a few minutes from town, including the Durango train station, restaurants, and groceries. The owner is very welcoming, and just up the drive. So much better than a cramped hotel. This is an amazing place!
