About the Property

A unique and cozy home perfect for vacations, retreats, and sabbaticals.

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.

The Space
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 9 adults with no kids OR up to 6 adults and 4-6 kids (with more kids possible if they want to sleep on air mattresses or outdoors in tents or the tree house). The house has one bedroom on each floor, plus a fold-out sofa bed in the living room and a sectional couch in the movie room (a great sleeping area for an older kid).

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').

Guest Access
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.

Getting around
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.
