Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in late August while visiting the Durango area. I could not have found a better home. Everything I needed was there. The home was quiet, clean and had a fully stocked kitchen. The owner was polite and responded quickly to my reservation request. If I find myself back in this area I would definitely request another visit. One last note, I enjoyed that the place was just far enough out from Durango to feel like you were deep in the mountains, but not so far that if you needed to head to town, it wasn't a long drive.

The whole family loved our stay at this place!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was a great place to stay for a week. Close enough to Durango for activities but secluded and peaceful. Kids (7, 9, 11) loved the creek that ran by the cabin and played for hours around it. There was a nice trail that led to Treasure Island, a 100 or so yards away that was near a larger stream. Cabin was very clean and comfortable with lots of room. Loved all the windows and waking up to view of trees and a mountain.

Surrounded by trees

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very clean. There are many windows in the house and when you wake up in the morning, you see trees from all sides. There is also a nice short hike you can take to a stream. The house is about a 20 minute drive to Durango. It's a short drive to Over the Hill Outfitters, where you can do some great horse back riding up the mountain. We felt like we never ran out of things to do when we wanted to be busy. But when we wanted to relax, we could sit on the back porch of the house and take in the scenery.

We loved our stay in this beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

The location was stunning. Sitting outside on the back deck was the highlight of our day. Listening to the nearby river and stream was so relaxing. The house is absolutely beautiful. We hope to come back soon!

Wonderful cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay in this cabin! It was exactly as shown in the pictures with plenty of room and all the comforts of home. The back deck was perfect for hanging out and watching the kids play in the woods. Our 3 kids had a blast playing in the creek, walking to Treasure Island and watching the Florida river (which was also so nice to listen to outside). Lemon Lake was only a 10 minute drive and provided great fishing for rainbow trout. A short and scenic 20-minute drive to downtown Durango also made it easy to stock up on groceries, fishing gear and anything else you might need. We saw deer in the backyard and many other squirrels and creatures that we don't see in AZ. Katie was super accessible to answer questions leading up to our stay and we had no need to contact her during our trip because everything was great. It was a perfect mountain getaway for our family and we would definitely come back!
