A Work of Art!

  • 5 of 5

The owner/builder is a retired cabinet craftsman, and his talent is showcased throughout the cabin. Although the cabin is small, there are so many built in cabinets and drawers for storage, you could stay for months! Everything was upscale and immaculate.

Lovely Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a break from city life, and this fit the bill. While we saw/heard a couple neighbors over the weekend, it was otherwise secluded and quiet. There were deer in the backyard at dawn and dusk most days, as well as lots of hummingbirds. There's very little light pollution, so the night sky was full of stars. If you bring a dog or otherwise plan to walk at night, I'd recommend a headlight (I think there were flashlights available; I had brought my own just in case). The floors and stairs were a little slick for my dogs, but after a day they had mostly adjusted. The kitchen included all the appliances necessary to cook all our meals, but we had a little trouble with the oven and needed to use the fan to avoid the smoke detector going off. We were happy to stay put and enjoy the solitude, but being about halfway between Durango and Silverton, there are plenty of activities nearby if that's what you're looking for.

Words can't describe it...

  • 5 of 5

Scott is so inviting and friendly! And their cabin is the perfect getaway for anyone from the city or just anyone needing to disconnect and breathe in the fresh mountain air. We were there for 5 days and it wasn't nearly long enough. Treat this cabin like your favorite hairstylist and book in advance since they book up quick. We will be returning soon!

40th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was Feb 13 to Feb 17, 2017. We wanted snow and there was lots of it. This romantic cottage was perfect for us. We found the property to be in excellent condition. All the amenities one would expect in a vacation home were made available. The location was ideal for access to Durango, Silverton and Purgatory Ski Resort. We found absolutely no negatives regarding this property.

Perfect winter get away

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend 2 weeks at this lovely cabin. Felt right at home in this modernized, light filled, well designed cabin. The location was perfect, in the forest and though there are several house in the area, felt really secluded. The snow was beautiful, having a four wheel drive to navigate the area roads in the winter is recommended. The (beautiful) stairs to the upstairs were too,steep and slippery for our older lab to climb, but that was not an issue, it just kept her downstairs where she was perfectly happy. The kitchen was very well, better than most places we've stayed, the spices and oils were especially appreciated. Thanks for all the firewood,! We hope to return soon.
