Beautiful Colorado Log Cabin Getaway

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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!

Beautiful Colorado Log Cabin Getaway

Beautiful home, with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome, we came to Durango to ski and snowboard. The house was little drive to purgatory resort but it was a pleasant drive through the country back roads and was well worth it. We enjoyed spending time there just relaxing and taking in the surroundings.

Beautiful cabin in the country

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our five day stay at this beautiful modern cabin. Everything was as promised - 3 bedrooms, a stocked kitchen, entertainment options for the evening, and a mostly quiet place in the country. We were there to see the fall color in and around Durango, and we timed it perfectly. The cabin is a ways out of town, so we had to make that drive each day, but the trade off for having our own private place was very much worth it. The hosts are responsive and interested in making the stay an enjoyable one. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants nice accommodations, very nice space, and a Colorado country experience.

If anything on this earth could be called perfect, this is the cabin! We had the most incredible vacation ever. We explored Pagosa Springs, Durango and Silverton; drove around Vallecito and Lemon lakes and took in all of God's breathtaking views; all the time knowing we would return to the most comfortable, soothing and relaxing cabin. We lacked for nothing. This will go down in the books as a family favorite. Hope to return soon!

Perfect mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

When you think of a perfect mountain home, this cabin is it. Actually much more than a cabin, the big front porch and wood carved bears welcome you. The home is decorated in a homey mountain style and is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It was the perfect location for us since we have family living nearby.

Vallecito Lake is nearby and the drive to Durango, especially the "back" way to Durango is very scenic.

We saw a doe and her twin fawns walk through our yard one morning.

We had a very pleasant stay and will be back for sure.
