About the property

We have a new (larger) property...also on the river! It's on VRBO #1267389.

A unique cabin on the river with mountain views, and ideally located between Durango (8 miles) and both the Vallecito and Lemon Reservoirs (4 and 10 miles, respectively). Whether sitting out on the deck just feet from the river or in the cabin, enjoy the fantastically relaxing sounds of the river and the serene views of the mountains and pines.

This cabin blends the spirit of rustic construction with recent high end updates, including stainless steel appliances, a travertine shower, and new wood floors. A fully stocked kitchen and well-furnished living spaces will make your days comfortable. A wood stove in the living room is ideal to take the chill off a cool night. Sleeping accommodations include a king size bed in the cabin bedroom, as well as a separate guest quarters with two twin beds and a half bathroom. A sleeper sofa in the cabin living room provides additional flexibility for sleeping. A washer and dryer make doing laundry a breeze.

Come here to get away from it all, but if you want to stay connected there is a large screen tv with satellite and high speed internet. A DVD player and board games are available for family entertainment.

We promise you will want to come back again and again to enjoy the tranquility of living on the river in the woods while being so close to ALL that the Durango area offers. This property is available year round for enjoyment of all seasons.

Thanks you for considering our cabin.....If you are looking for a larger, more spacious property along the same Florida river, please check out our other outstanding river property on VRBO.

About Ron and Cheryl Morse

Durango residents:

We started visiting the Durango area in the fall of 2013 when our son started school at Fort Lewis College. We quickly fell in love with the area...enough so that we decided to make a huge lifestyle change and moved here after spending 25 years in Austin.

Once we arrived in Durango, we soon realized that this area is all that we expected (and more). We also knew that we wanted to find a vacation home on the water. When we found this cabin we knew it was a perfect place to spend quality downtime with our family. One of our favorite things to do is to sit on the deck and enjoy the sound of the water flowing by.

We hope that you will enjoy your time at our cabin as much as we do.

Ron and Cheryl Morse purchased this cabin in 2014

Very clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

I'm a bit picky when it comes to cleanliness and this cute cabin exceeded my expectations. Very clean and the perfect location allowing the boys to fly fish while the girls shopped in Durango. Nobody wanted to leave. Next time we will have a longer stay to enjoy more of what the area has to offer.

Very relaxing and enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin! While we there we visited Mesa Verde National Park a couple of days to see the Indian Cliff dwellings. Spent a day in Durango sight seeing. Went to Silverton and visited the Old Hundred Gold Mine. We even tried our hand at fly fishing at the lake near by. It was great coming back to the cabin after our daily adventures to the relaxing sounds of the river and enjoying the deck. Ron and Cheryl were great hosts and very helpful.

Loved our visit to Durango. This cabin was perfect for our family. It was very relaxing and being on the river was a true delight. We were very impressed with the stocked kitchen as well as the snacks provided by the host. We would definitely recommend this property.

Wonderful cabin on the river

  • 5 of 5

WOW. What a wonderful visit! The hosts were great in communicating about our visit, right down to warning us about the "calming bumps" that were on the road to the cabin. (Thank you for that!). We were greeted with a big basket of snacks, and a pan of fresh baked brownies. The main cabin was spotless and well appointed. We were traveling with my parents, and they loved having their own little "tiny bedroom" separate from the main quarters. The highlight of the stay - the river. I couldn't get enough of sitting on the deck listening to and watching the river flow right by us. The cabin was well appointed, and had terrific resources on touring the area, which we took advantage of. My only regret - we did not stay enough days in this wonderful place. There is so much to do and see in the area, and to come back to stellar accommodations each night was wonderful. I absolutely will book this place when we return to Durango - but next time, it will be for a week. This is absolutely one of my most favorite rentals!

Very comfy home

  • 5 of 5

In general the home had everything to make you comfortable even fresher baked brownies. The only thing we found lacking was a light over the door of the 2nd bedroom which was only accessible from outside. If you did not have a flashlight at night putting in the door code was a challenge

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review of our cabin. I'm sorry the motion-detection light was not operating when you were at the cabin. We have the lights over the front door to the cabin and also shining on the guest quarters for just that reason. It must be that the previous guest turned that switch off and we didn't notice and get it turned back on for your arrival. We have since written a note on that switch to leave it on at all times so that future guests are sure to have the lights on when they arrive and when they go out to the guest quarters. Thanks again for your feedback. Best regards. Ron

Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, lovely setting and so relaxing on the river! The cabin was very tastefully decorated and the gracious owners made sure we were very comfortable from the beginning - even leaving us fresh baked brownies upon our arrival! Which we devoured! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay here and we are already planning when we can come back !
