About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

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. We welcome you to this historic neighborhood. It is an amazing location within walking distance of downtown, restaurants, bike path, trails, library, Powerhouse childrens museum, and other amenities. 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 18 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 Southwest

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.

Great place in a great spot with great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Very comfortable garage loft apartment with a nice full kitchen. The hosts Joe and Yona checked on us a few times when we were coming and going to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed (we did!). It's a very pet friendly place; our puppy loved their dogs! It is in a perfect spot and is an easy walk to town yet quiet and peaceful. We'll definitely book here next time.

Perfect getaway!

This was a hidden gem! We stayed a few days in Durango as one of our cities to visit during our Colorado trip. What a treat. Perfect, cozy accomodations, and amazingly wonderful and warm hosts Joe and Yona. This is definitely a place we will return to visit!

Great place. Clean and comfortable. Everything went very smoothly. Wonderful time of year! Downtown is a short car ride away. Walk or bike to the beautiful Animas River Trail. Friendly, helpful hosts. Nice neighborhood!

Always better than any hotel

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Carriage House. We always rent homes instead of hotels for 3 or more days since it is much quieter and more private. Not to mention room to spread out and cook a meal in if so desired! We were able to walk downtown with the Animas River trail close by and enjoyed everything! Thank you Joe and Yona for wonderful accommodations and your care and kindness!!

Perfect apartment and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Yona's carriage house was lovely! Great location in a quiet neighborhood though close to downtown. The darling apartment was extra clean and equipped with everything we needed for a week stay. Especially enjoyed the back deck for morning coffee and cooking out dinner. Would definitely recommend staying here (we hated to leave)! Thanks, Joe and Yona, for your hospitality!
