About the property

Large Log Home On 5 Acres In The Animas Valley, Sleeps 14

****The calendar is up to date and current****

Located in the heart of the Animas River Valley, no detail was overlooked in crafting this custom log home. Only ten miles from Historic Downtown Durango, views in every direction are of towering red cliffs and tall ponderosa pines. Manicured lawns, water ponds, bridges, and breathtaking mountain scenery surround the home, making it the perfect place for creating family memories.

With an inviting and open floor plan, the great room is accented with a river rock fireplace and tall panoramic windows. Throughout the homes are log beams, walls of windows and beautiful artwork. In addition, you can enjoy a big screen TV, DVD player, VCR, and a surround sound stereo system. Listen to crackling of a fire on a crisp winter night or gather friends and family on a peaceful summer eve. This room is the ideal place for it all!

The gourmet kitchen and dining room has a breakfast bar, wet bar, wine chiller, and large pantry. Just outside is a decks complete with a built-in gas grill, while the large picture window above the kitchen sink offers outstanding wildlife viewing.

The master bedroom suite on the main level is magnificent with a private deck, entertainment center, and oversized double-headed shower. Also on the main level is a second master suite with a king-size bed, jet tub, and separate exit to the front deck.

Upstairs are two guest bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed and private bathroom. The loft is can be used as an office and can be used to stay in touch while away from home. A second living/ kids bedroom area can be used as a den, play room, or slumber party room for children. There are 4 twin beds in this game room. The home also has a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Admit it, wouldn't you rather be here?

Beautiful Cabin Has Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cabin with three generations of our family and fell in love with it and the entire area around Durango. It's large, comfortable, and is in a completely private setting with wonderful views. If you need a place to rest and relax or as a home base for all kinds of activities, this is it. It's a stunning property and we'd love to come back!

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Willowbrook. The setting was beautiful and the house was spacious, well-equipped and very welcoming. We felt that we were fortunate for someone to share their home with us. We would definitely rent this home again.

Outstanding property for our extended family

  • 5 of 5

Great home to make family memories! Both the home and grounds were lovely. The grandkids quickly turned the bridge and island into a pirate adventure area. They also loved having their own bunkhouse room! The adults loved the well appointed kitchen, the huge dining room table (we all fit!) the spacious living room and big screen tv, our own separate beds/baths, and the wonderful deck overlooking the pond. We had 12 people from age 1 to age 72. Highly recommend for large extended families.

Great family home!

  • 4 of 5

This large home is perfect for large family groups or for 4 couples! Lots of individual space and large living room for mingling. Beautiful outdoor spaces abound.

Kitchen is large but very dated with no ice maker in fridge and uncontrollable gas stove. For a family that likes to cook, this was very difficult. House is perfect for groups who intend to eat out for most meals!

wonderful cabin of comfort

  • 5 of 5

Two families with kids stayed here during Presidents day weekend for a ski trip. The photos do not do the property any justice, as the cabin is wonderfully spacious and on a large secluded property in a beautiful valley. The cabin was so great that all seven of us decided to just stay in on a day that we had originally allocated for sightseeing. We were conveniently located down the road in one direction to the ski mountain and in the other direction to the town which had a nice feel to it. I would strongly recommend this cabin. Pete at the management company was very helpful and responsive.

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing. We had a large group of 12 ranging in ages from 5 weeks to 87. The children had fun playing in the yard and around the pond. My Mother-in-law enjoyed sitting by the beautiful picture window in the living room reading. The home and surrounding grounds are so beautiful you are content to just stay there. Every room has a spectacular view.

We all spent time on the back porch watching the hummingbirds. We filled the feeders and at one point there were 35 hummingbirds feeding.

The beds were all very comfortable. We cooked several meals during the week and were pleased with the kitchen accomodations .

Willowbrook is definitely a place we will want to visit again.
