About the property

The Eagles Nest Cabin

Elevation 7,939 Feet

1,425 Square Feet

There are several great rentals to choose from at the Vallecito vacation rental market. Many share similar amenities. NONE enjoy the most unique location, and breathtaking views. It is unequivocally one of a kind like no other. Eagles Nest has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and is about 1,425 square feet. It can accommodate 10 guests comfortably. The “Nest” is a rustic, secluded and private cabin at the top of the hill, at the end of the road, perched high on a cliff at 8,000 feet above sea level - a few hundred feet above the valley floor. Our guests enjoy endless unobstructed views of snowcapped peaks, the Continental Divide, a green valley with shimmering streams right below, and beautiful views of Lake Vallecito. The Little Valley has its own microclimate – an ever changing canvas of mesmerizing colors sights and sounds. Eagles Nest was professionally redesigned and redone by its owners. We like to call it “Neo Rustic”. The exterior look was transformed by an artisan, a Hollywood western movies set designer into a 200 year old cabin in the mountains, giving it a very unique frontier look and feel. Inside, it affords new furnishings, art work, and a modern kitchen which consists of new appliances, a coffee and espresso bar, and gas fired BBQ grill, plus state of the art audio visual system, a movie library, games for young and adults, a horse shoe game set, Wi-Fi, local phone service and Satellite TV. A full size washer and dryer is available as well. A good part of your time will be spent under the gazebo on the large gated deck- nature or star gazing. All photos in the display were taken from the deck or on the premises without enhancements. Some say even the pictures don't do it justice. At night, the dark skies hang so low, millions of stars hover above the roof top. It seems one could reach up and pluck one right off its heavenly seat. The countless acres of the Weminuche wilderness and the San Juan national park share a common border with the property – just walk up to the trail. Vallecito offers entertainment and fun for all ages - adults, the young, and young at heart - fun activities such as cycling, horseback riding, boating (the marina is located a short distance from the cabin) hiking, ATV and four wheeling, fly fishing and hunting just to name a few. The shoreline is dotted with some lovely restaurants at waters edge. Durango with all that it has to offer is just 25 miles away. Come on up and stop chasing....... escape the mundane, the hustle, the summer heat, smog, noise and pollution. Give your body and soul an Eagles Nest rest.

We visited with our extended family and had a BLAST.

Second time visiting the Eagles nest and once again had the best time!

The cabin was as expected- clean, tidy and ready for vacationing.

Great amenities and a including a nice touch with chocolate on the pillows.

Will def visit again next year all the way from NYC.

Loved it! A great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

First of all WOW!!

The house is well kept, well equipped, clean and in a great location half an hour friom the nearest city Durango. Down the road, there is a grocery store, fishing equipment and a great Mexican Restaurant. The view is outstanding and we cannot wait to visit again.

For sure we recommend the cabin for families with young children or even couples that want to have a quiet get--away.

We'll be back!

Spectacular views &cabin to remember all year long

  • 5 of 5

We just spent one glorious week at the Eagle's Nest near Vallecito Lake for a family reunion. The cabin provided us with a perfect place to visit, catch-up, cook, relax and soak up nature's beauty in all directions.

From the moment we walked into the doors, we were surrounded by warmth and a feeling of 'home.' The owners' attention to detail are evident everywhere from comfortable furniture to kitchen equipment as well as comfortable, warm beds.

Nature provides the background with its majesty and while we were there, the aspen leaves were in various stages of yellow, reds and browns. The blue jays and chipmunks provided the adults and children with daily entertainment as they shared their environment with us for a week.

Actually, one week is barely enough for a visit to the Eagles's Nest. Once we settled in, it was time to go home. However, this left us with a desire to return to this jewel as soon as possible.

The cabin is situated in such a way that you feel "one with nature" and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the home and space created for a spectacular view of the surrounding valley - at its best - no matter what the season.

We are already planning next year's family reunion at the Eagle's Nest!

Beautiful. Private. Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I drove up from Arlington Tx. Stayed a whole week. Absolutely beautiful... very private, the deck was perfect. The foliage, weather and mountains made for a very romantic week.. the cabin had all the comforts of home and then some , coffee in the morning and wine in the evening on the deck watching the millions of stars we don’t see in the city. Can’t wait to go back .!!!Loved it.

review on Eagles Nest

  • 5 of 5

My name is Emily and I would like to share my experience at 'Eagles Nest'. My family and I were visiting Durango, Colorado for a family reunion this October 2017.

We couldn’t ask for a better place to stay than Eagles nest to do that! The cabin was very clean, fully equipped for all the things we needed. The bedrooms were perfect for all our needs, and the view over there on top of the mountains – incredible! We would stay there for another week if we could. It was amazing and made our trip unforgettable. We for sure will go back there again.
