Perfect for us. Beautiful and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family's needs. The furniture in and out provided a comfortable place for our elderly mother to sit and enjoy nature while the younger members of the family could go explore the surrounding area. The kids loved it, mom loved it, we loved it. It was beyond the comfort level of many places we have stayed. The views from the deck were great for observing the birds in the meadow across the creek and for watching the storms roll in over the mountains. Location is great, close to Durango, close to Mesa Verde, it was the ideal location for us, Loved it, hope to return someday. Thank you so much to the owner for sharing this.

The property is so beautiful -- the ponds, river, woods, yard, hottub -- all wonderful and perfect! The house is well stocked. The house could use some updates, but is perfectly comfortable. My only big complaint are the beds -- too soft and uncomfortable. My poor back! We had a great time, though. Thank you!

Rustic but nice stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Perfect for a family with two adults and two toddlers. We were able to rent a pack n play from the owner. One of the best things was having a washer and dryer. The cabin is only 10-15 minutes from downtown, and easy to access.

We especially enjoyed the creek out back, and feeding the fish. Wireless internet was great too!

Great place to stay for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here while vacationing in Durango. Loved the place. Kids enjoyed fishing out of the pond and hiking across the river on the property. Owner lives close by and very friendly. Enjoyed watching the horses every evening across the river from the back patio. Cabin is only 10 minutes from Durango. The view from the back porch is beautiful. Cabin was clean and very comfortable.
