Guestbook comments from the owner

I and my family stayed at Bill’s Summit Lake cabin for 3 wonderful weeks! To call it a cabin understates the elegance and the high-end finishes of this lovely home. Not only is it beautifully furnished and appointed, the layout is superb! With a sumptuous (Views! Views! Views!) master bedroom with deluxe king size bed, lovely corner sofa, AND a separate living room upstairs, (there’s another lovely bedroom upstairs too!) I and my husband had privacy while the teens had their own bedrooms and living room downstairs. We all had the space we needed and wanted together and apart – that makes for a fabulous get-away!

The views are to die for! Tons of decks and tons of great viewing windows make all the difference. Views of the snow-capped peaks, Summit Lake, and the ponderosa pines on 35 very private acres really provided a nourishing setting. We loved watching all the deer that came through each day, herds of them!

We have no doubt that when we next return to the Durango-Mancos-Cortez area we will rent this home again! Thank you Bill for being such a wonderful and accessible host!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, secluded and was perfect for our family Christmas vacation!!! Bill answered our questions quickly and was a great host. The House was clean, good sized well equipped kitchen, big dining room table for us to enjoy family meals, outdoor fire pit was great for our hot chocolate and s’mores nights. We will definitely book this home again whenever we visit the area!

We came here to Elk hunt and saw nothing but we did okay fishing one afternoon. Even without Elk the trip was nice because of the house and the people in the area. All very nice and welcoming

Fantastic cabin, fantastic views!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked. The owner was very easy to communicate with. We had zeros issues while we were there. Our group was made up of 3 guys and we used the cabin as a base camp for an elk hunt in the San Juan national forest. It was wonderful to come in to a hot shower and soft bed after hiking 15 miles all over the mountains. I would absolutely stay here again.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The property couldn’t have been in a prettier area, it was secluded, private, quiet. It’s always a bit iffy not seeing before buying but we couldn’t have been more pleased. The listing represents the property accurately. We went for bike rides and walks from the house, played horseshoes (provided) and saw more stars at night then we’ve seen in a long time. The home is tastefully decorated, clean, uncluttered and VERY roomy for the 6 of us. We loved the location as it was close to everything we wanted to see and do. Dolores, Durango, Cortez, Phil’s World, Boggy Draw, Mesa Verde and my dad’s house were all within a comfortable driving distance with a short drive to the grocery store and Absolute Bakery... a MUST. I can’t say enough good about it.

Truly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this location for our gathering. The cabin is spacious and accommodated us and our guests nicely. The weather was beautiful, and the cabin has been placed spectacularly. The view of the lake in the distance was perfect. We enjoyed the privacy that the cabin offers, but also the convenient and close proximity to the local town and attractions. We would definitely recommend this place to others and would stay here again.
