This newly constructed 650 square foot above garage loft replaced the old carriage house that was built in 1888. It sits off street behind our 2 story brick victorian residence.

Enjoy your vacation in the beauty of this modern, fully furnished home. We have a fold out crib and stroller available and can provide toys for chidren of all ages upon request.

If you choose to walk to downtown the swinging bridge over the beautiful Animas River is only three blocks away offering easy access to all the restaurants and shopping that Durango has to offer.

A relaxing place to stay with a private deck overlooking a forested hill and a garden water feature. This home has vaulted ceilings and a modern kitchen with stainless appliances, fully stocked and all the extra things you might need to cook in house.

The spacious bedroom has a new king size bed with fine linens and down comforter. The bathroom is luxurious with a Carrera marble counter top, 18 inch tile floor and Subway tiled shower. It is accessorized with quality towels, soaps, and a hair dryer.

The living room is equipped with a double sized futon couch, flat screen tv, dvd player, 2 leather swivel chairs, and a library complete with games. We also provide wifi access.

The dining area seats up to six and can be used for dinners on those nights you want to stay in.

About Joe and Yona Delling

Both of us attended here at Ft Lewis College and while we have both lived other places neither of us had ever found a place quite like Durango. We have both now Lived in town for more than 20 years. Yona is a nurse at the local hospital and Joe is a fly fishing guide and carpenter. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to live and raise a family in such a unique location.

Joe and Yona Delling purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Joe and Yona Delling chose Durango

Ours is one of the few Victorian homes in the neighborhood built in the late 1800s. It required a lot of fixing up but the location and historical nature of the house was just too much for us to pass up. We finished construction on the Carriage house in early 2014 in hopes people would spend their vacations here and also as place for friends and family to stay when they visit.

What makes this bungalow unique

One benefit of the properties location is that it butts to a forested hillside, this means we have no alley or neighbors behind us. The deck of the Carriage house faces this hill and its common to see deer and other wildlife pass through. I think it offers a privacy and feel that's hard to find in a location this close to Main Avenue.

Perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with this apartment and Durango as well. It was so clean and offered plenty of space for the two of us and our pup. Had we decided to stay in and cook, the shelves and cabinets were stocked with anything we could have needed. We enjoyed wine on the patio in the evening and coffee in the morning. One morning I was lucky enough to watch a large buck having breakfast off the neighbor's tree. It is so peaceful and quiet yet not a long walk to the town and river. My only regret is that I didn't book it for a longer vacation. We will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Durango. Thank you, Joe and Yona, you are wonderful hosts!

Our first time in Durango and this lovely loft is definitely on our radar for our next visit.

Thanks to the owners for being so accommodating when our "hikers" showed up wet and early.

Great location, hot in the summer

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the carriage house, excepting a couple key issues listed below. The property is clean, updated and well cared for and the hosts are hospitable and flexible. Additionally, the location is outstanding, on a tree lined street walking distance to all of the main street restaurants and shops.

A couple items for future prospective renters: 1) the loft was warm when we arrived, and the window unit was generally not powerful enough to cool the loft. We were told to open the windows at night, which we did, but with very little breeze we were quite warm in the evening time. 2) the black dog is pretty intimidating. We were warned about her by the owner, but she still surprised us when we were trying to walk to our car, and basically pinned us to the fence barking and growling (I grabbed a stick and we picked both our kids up). While I am fairly certain she is "all talk", I believe the dog should be kept inside while guests are staying on the property. Or get some training for the dog

Great space, awesome hosts, amazing Durango experience!

  • 5 of 5

Joe & Yona's Carriage House was the best for my family of four (kids age 11 &13). It was super clean, well stocked and decorated so simply and tastefully it made me wonder how to create the same zen in my own home. Joe helped my husband daily in giving ideas as where to fish, hike, bike and go out to eat. The house was perfect for my kids (tire swing in front, daily visits from resident dogs, tv, wifi, yard waterfall, etc...). Also back deck was great for coffee in the morning, grilling later and late night wine for romance. Thank you Joe & Yona!!!!!
