About the property

2 bedroom cabin on the river with mountain views

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 queen 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.

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

Awesome cabin with a view and sounds of the river

  • 5 of 5

After staying in many places, Ron and Cheryl's cabin on the river was awesome. The house itself was nicely decorated

with every detail being attended to. The magic of sitting on the deck listening to the robust Florida River was so peaceful!

Prior to our stay I left several messages for Ron who was so prompt in getting back to me which I greatly appreciated.

Without a doubt, the next time our travels take us to Durango we will definitely enjoy staying at the cabin.

Our very best vacation rental experience.

  • 5 of 5

Our great vacation started by getting a text for Cheryl telling us the cabin was ready for check in. After a two day drive, to get in early and rest before grocery shopping made everyone happy. We wanted a rustic cabin on the water and that exactly what we got. Everything was exactly as stated and more. The cabin was very clean and functional with some added food treats on our arrival. It has a great location as we made trips to nearby lakes, Silverton, and Pegosa Springs with Durango a short drive away for anything we might need. After checking out and arriving home we received an e-mail from Ron letting us know our deposit had been refunded and that we had left a small package, and wanted a shipping address so he could send it to us. Our experience with Ron, Cheryl, and the cabin could not have been better. We look forward to going back.

Fantastic river view.

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in many Homeaway vacation properties but this place on the Florida River is the tops.

Pictures are exactly as posted. Durango is a 15 minute drive but is a quiet and peaceful place away from the crowds. Grandkids had a wonderful time.

Beautiful, peaceful and private setting, directly on the Florida River. Our hosts were very accommodating and seemed to anticipate everything we might need. Couldn't have been better.

Beautiful and peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house on a quiet street. We stayed 4 nights in July and enjoyed it immensely. The house is very well equipped and kept us comfortable. The kitchen and living areas were perfect for our family of four; there was plenty of room for lounging, watching tv, playing cards, etc. The owners communicated well with us and had everything perfectly set up when we arrived. We spent our days out and about in Durango or at nearby Lemon and Vallecito lakes, then cooked dinner at home and sat out on the deck. My favorite moments were definitely enjoying coffee or a beer out on the deck, it is glorious. The river rushing by is so beautiful, and there were a lot of birds to appreciate, including hummingbirds. Our teenage boys took over the detached bedroom and really liked it. We had never been to the Durango area and had a wonderful time hiking, horseback riding, exploring the Resort at Purgatory, golfing...we even attended the Rodeo on Wednesday night. I hope we can return next year!
