Escape to the tranquility of this gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath modern Colorado retreat. You will enjoy spectacular views for miles in every direction and from every room in the house or while sitting outside on one of three outdoor decks.
High in the Durango Hills neighborhood adjacent to the San Juan National Forest, you will immersed in the surrounding forestland yet be just a short drive to Durango.
This 2,600 sq. ft. home will sleep about 8 adults with no kids OR up to 6 adults and 4-6 kids. The house has one bedroom on each floor, plus a fold-out sofa bed in the living room, a sectional day bed in the movie room (a great sleeping area for an older kid), a crib, and an air mattress. - Pak-n-play crib with changing table that can be moved into any room. - A high chair and booster chair for meals. -Some toys, books, and puzzles (best for ages 5 and under).
We have several kid-friendly amenities including: a) small kids "project table" with 2 benches for drawing or doing puzzles, b) two kids' sleds, an enclosed "kinder shuttle" sled with adult harness, and one pair of kids' snowshoes, c) a treehouse with zipline, d) movie room with video projector and giant pull down screen, and d) a large hammock on the front porch for inducing naps!
The house stays cool in the the summer (due to gentle mountain breezes) and warm in the winter (due to three gas-burning stoves, 1 wood burning stove, and a 2-story solarium 'wall of windows').
Guests to this retreat will have full access to the entire house and 3 acre property (including forested area and meadow), basketball hoop and paved play area, kid's tree house with zipline, and walking access to nearby U.S. Forest Service hiking and biking trails.
This house is perfect for enjoying all that Durango area has to offer: spend an afternoon or evening in downtown Durango (15-minute drive), or day trips to Lake Vallecito or Durango Mountain Resort (both a 45 minute drive).
NOTE: The house is a 30-minute drive from the airport. The last 3 miles are on a gravel road with several turns and grade changes. Any car or truck can navigate the road during the non-winter months. But all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive is ESSENTIAL in the winter months, and snow tires are HIGHLY recommended.
