Wonderful property if you're looking for a peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

The property located above a barn has spectacular views of not only the town of Durango but surrounding mesas and mountains. We stayed 7 nights and were comfortable with the furniture, kitchen and amenities. Great place to stay if you're looking for a quiet stay in the country away from everyone. We enjoyed it.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

With two boys, one of them only 4, we drove up the driveway to our house with a mixture of exhilaration and fear, as it appeared we might be living on a cliff with a spectacular view of downtown Durango. Luckily, we crested the hill and saw our cute little place down below, in the middle of a pasture with the same view as from the top of the hill. We were greeted by Bill and Bonnie's huge, sweet dogs, which we felt good having around in the quiet wilderness. The apartment is upstairs, above the barn, Which allows for air movement and amazing views. Very cozy and perfect for our family. The horses were friendly and liked being fed. Bill and Bonnie were great hosts - we will stay with them for sure the next time we're back in Durango.

Amazing Property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week at New Year's and had a blast. The house was comfortable and the views were amazing. Our girls had (and us adults) had a blast sledding down the driveway. The only I can knock is that driveway ... 4-wheel drive is required and a tight turning radius helps with nerves as you must navigate a few switchbacks to get to the property ... I've lived in warm weather climates for the last 20 years and was not accustomed to driving on snow covered switchbacks so that proved scary although I'm sure we were safe. Those accustomed to driving in snow should have no issues. The owner was fantastic and made sure we were well cared for.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place!! My husband and and I along with our two boys (10 & 13) absolutely loved this place. It is close to town but you get the peaceful and majestic mountain experience you want when going to the mountains. I would highly recommend staying here if you are planning on visiting Durango. We will definitely be back.

Amazing Durango vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. Myself, my husband, and our two boys had so much fun and relaxation here - the house was equipped with everything we needed and the hosts/owners are so nice and made sure we had what we needed. The property is secluded, which we loved, yet close by everything we needed. The views - WOW, just WOW - stunning. We all loved playing horseshoes and relaxing by the fire pit. We sure hope to go back again and highly recommend!

Our "go to" home in Durango!

  • 5 of 5

We love this property! I visited Durango and stayed at the Mountain Memories Guesthouse in the late spring with my wife and two young boys (4 and 7). The property listing is accurate, but it really doesn't do it justice. The property is extremely comfortable, we immediately felt at home, our hosts were very welcoming and the views are breathtaking!

During our stay we invited some friends, that live in Durango, over for dinner. When they arrived they were astonished at our amazing rental. They had always wondered about the home on top of the mountain and were excited to find it and said they would be recommending the place to their visiting friends and family.

We are already looking forward to our next visit!
