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!

Amazing home !
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
A Little Slice Of Heaven - Again!
This is by far the best vacation we've had! This is our second stay in Jan and Stan's cabin and they've set the bar so high, we don't know if we could go anywhere else. The cabin is clean, has all the amenities plus some, you can sit on either of the porches and just feel at peace. You are sure to get a glimpse of several deer as they come visit both morning and night. This place is close enough to go sight see, hike, fish, or shop in the surrounding areas. Thank you Jan and Stan for your outstanding hospitality once again! We'll be back!
Wonderful place to stay
My family and I enjoyed our stay in Stan’s cabin. It is peaceful and quiet. You don’t know there are others nearby. You feel like you’re completely alone. It was very relaxing which is what we were hoping it would be. The cabin is very nice. Thick carpet, great beds and bedding, roomy, and the kitchen is well stocked. We brought groceries from home, and it was easy to prepare meals for my family. Durango is close, so we shopped there and enjoyed lunch out one afternoon. If you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful place to stay with your family, this is the cabin you need. Stan and Jan were wonderful with any questions we had. Checking in and out was super fast and easy too.
Dear Mary, We’re so happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return. Thanks so much for the stellar review! We try very hard to please our guests and tprovide you with all the niceties of your own home. Thanks also for taking such great care of our cabin. Come back soon!
Home away from home.
This was our second stay at the cabin and we truly feel comfortable staying here. It is very clean, quiet, and private. We will stay here again.
Truly Remarkable Cabin
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.

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.
