Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We don't even know where to begin! We awakened each day to a view of the meadow with the forest behind where deer were grazing. Stunning! The peaceful surroundings were PERFECT for a get away. Durango had all sorts of excitement from zip-lining to white water rafting to the Silverton Train. And Gary was an excellent host. So kind and friendly. The barn loft was exceptionally clean as well as adorable. We had a wonderful time. We will go back!

Quiet, roomy get-away

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable property with spacious living area and a nice deck. On the downside: Owner did not clean refrigerator prior to arrival, and said we were welcome to whatever was in it. The refrigerator smelled bad. Also lots of old stuff in the pantry. Clean it up before each visit, please -- customers will expect it, as they would of any lodging for hire.

Owner's Response: We're sorry you were disappointed. This is the second negative review from this individual. We draw the line with obsessive negative comments after we have already politely addressed the same comments with a previous review from this individual. Many guests have requested the refrigerator contain some food items because they arrive late at night and we do our best to accommodate their needs.

Beautiful get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The perfect home base to come home to after experiencing all the area has to offer. Can honestly say we didn't want to leave. Paul and Lauretta are wonderful. Only complaint is that they could do nothing about the moon being so bright and covering some of the stars. I guess we'll have to come back to get the full effect! If you have dogs, look no further. Our boys are still sleeping from all the exercise they got. Truly a special place!

Owner's Response: Oh yes! Forgot to mention how bright our full moon can be. It washes the Milky Way away! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for choosing our little ranch in the woods for your getaway. We appreciate that you and your dogs took such good care of our place.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I little out of the way, but a great place to stay if you want to see this part of Colorado. Near Durango, Pagosa Springs, Ouray, Mesa Verde National Park, etc. The owners made everything private and comfortable. Will definitely going back in the Summer.

New Years 2017

  • 5 of 5

If I had to sum this trip up in just a few words, it would be AMAZING, AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL! The cabin, well, was just wonderful, everything about it was just fabulous, shower was Awesome!

My husband and I got to sit in the hot tub underneath a blanket of stars, it was so amazing! Not once, but twice we sat in there when it was snowing-no words needed for that!

We took our two dogs, they were at home, loved the snow, it was great to take them with us.

Overall, it was a vacation we enjoyed, Gary and Lauretta were just very pleasant and we loved their sweet cabin in the woods! We will be back for sure!!!

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The area and property are great! We loved every minute of our vacation. Lauretta and Gary are extremely sweet and helpful! Truly one of the best vacations we've ever had! If you need to disconnect and connect with nature this is the place to go! The stary nights, beautiful open land, cozy "postcard-ish" barn/cabin and gorgeous horses were truly beautiful! We will come again!
