3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom located in small mountain community

Peaceful setting in the woods with all the comforts of home. Wake up surrounded by the serenity of nature, where you'll encounter a variety of wildlife...deer, elk, birds, rabbits, in your own front yard. Enjoy a leisurely hike, right out your front door, or just a few miles away you'll find trails to challenge the most avid hikers. Trout/Salmon fishing, rafting, soaking in the hot springs, skiing, biking all within a lovely 1-25 mile drive. Fine dining and entertainment all near by. Don't forget to ride the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train! For winter sports fun, it's just a short drive to Durango Mountain Resort or Wolf Creek. But if your idea of fun is just hanging out at the cabin and taking a nice winter walk, you can hike or snow shoe in the freshly fallen white stuff, then run inside to warm by the fire and sip hot chocolate! Ice skate at Chapman Ice Rink or experience a sleigh ride in Durango. Phenomenal sledding hills are located in our mountain community, at the nearby lake and park. Experience the peace and serenity of our little piece of heaven. You'll no doubt be planning your next visit, before you even begin to head back home!

                                              Truly Remarkable Cabin

                                              Mary Rakowitz L.Odem, Texas

                                              The cabin was totally equipped with what everything you need. It was beautiful watching the deer come out around 6:30pm everyday. The grandkids got to play in the snow.

                                              The cabin was so beautifully furnished thru out the cabin.

                                              Thank you,

                                              Marvin & Mary (Odem, Texas)

                                              Gwen & Emery and children (Taft, Texas)

                                              PS: I highly recommend this cabin for you’re next vacation!!!

                                              I sent a review earlier, but am happy to do again. We had a wonderful time and would love to go back. We told all our friends what a beautiful home you have.

                                              Amazing home !

                                              Chandra J.

                                              Jan and Stan went out of their way to help us when another rental fell through. This home exceeded all of our expectations. The home was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. My family and I had a great stay and will be back again!!

                                              Thank you Chandra, and we’re so happy that we were able to help you! We’re pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you’ll return soon. Please tell your friends and family about our little piece of CO heaven! Thanks again! Jan

                                              Wild life abounds!

                                              mary k.

                                              Wow! All our needs were surpasses by this beautiful cabin. Would rent again and plan on doing so again.

                                              Perfect place to stay!

                                              Carol A.Venice FL

                                              This was our second stay in this comfortable mountain home. It is attractively decorated and extremely clean. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the deer and birds after our busy days exploring the Vallecito and Durango area.

                                              A perfect place to relax!

                                              We so enjoyed your beautiful and peaceful home outside Durango. It was great to discover a new area too. The home had everything we needed and was totally comfortable. We even saw a BEAR walking through the neighborhood nearby, our first ever! There were deer in the yard frequently.and it was so lovely to see how the people and wildlife lived together so nicely. Really a treat for us city dwellers! Working with Jan was so easy and helpful. Thanks again for everything and we will definitely be back!
