Newly remodeled cozy cottage.

Completely remodeled, brand new big kitchen, all new appliances, including washer and dryer. Radiant slab heating, working fireplace, fire wood provided. Hiking trail leaves from property. Very near Durango Mountain Resort, which has year-round activities. Easy access to Highway 550. Close to many hiking trails, mountain lakes, and other recreational opportunities. We have a good dirt road that is well maintained and fine in the fall and summer. In winter and possibly spring, you will need four wheel drive or all wheel drive because of the snow.

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.

Charming, rustic with a touch of modern. A warm and memorable retreat for any occasion.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this lovely A frame twice and it's become a go to getaway for me and my wife - a wonderful escape from the hustle of kids, work and everyday life. The owners are down to earth and very friendly / accommodating - they go above and beyond to try and make your stay memorable and comfortable. The house is very well equipped with everything you'd need. It's unique with stunning design and craftsmanship detail that the owner lovingly did himself - very impressive.

We love the wood burning stove and how the owner gets a fire going before you get there to get it warm and cozy.

We love the drive up to the house - especially in the winter - make sure you do have a 4/AWD vehicle.

We love the snowshoes the owners have for you to use - lots of snowshoe hiking.

We love the proximity to Durango (20 min) and Purgatory (10 min)

We love so much about this place I'm almost afraid I'm saying too much and I'll make it difficult for us to book in for the future.

Just what we needed.

  • 4 of 5

A cabin in the woods- secluded yet 20 minutes to Durango. It was cozy and completely updated. TONS of beautiful windows allows you to see the gorgeous forest. Could have been a bit cleaner, and organized. LOVED the firewood provided- many warm nights were enjoyed by the wonderful fireplace. THANK YOU SCOTT, you were very kind!

This home was PERFECT for my husband & I! The location feels wonderfully remote, but it's no more than 15 minutes or so from downtown Durango. The area it's in is GORGEOUS! The home seems much larger than the pictures portray it. It's brilliantly laid out and had every amenity that we could possibly want. We've stayed in many cabins all over the States and this is by far one of our favorites. Thank you SO much for allowing us to enjoy your cabin!
