About the Property
Stunning views in a peaceful setting with wildlife, action and adventure nearby
Our living area is cozy with lots of views, TV, games and a great set up for just hanging out and enjoying each others company. The dining area has a very large handmade mountain table with seating for 12. Could be more with small kids.
The kitchen is fully stocked with lots of extras including a smoothie maker, crock pots, fondue pot, coffee grinder, belgium waffle maker, etc. The stove has five burners with the sixth being a large oval burner for cooking on grill or griddle (also provided). We have place settings for 12. Leftover containers, foil, plastic wrap and baggies are also provided. We have not skimped on the quality of the kitchen wear.
Teenagers are not left out. We have books for them, movies, an Xbox with games and a Sega Genesis stand alone with built in games. And last, but not least, for them, we have good Wi-Fi service. The downstairs room is a perfect get away for them or the guys with a 75inch TV and DVD player. There is two large leather sofas, and two leather chairs with ottomans for seating. One of the sofas, pulls out into one of our fabulous Comfort Sleepers.
The laundry room is stocked with a very nice large capacity washer and dryer, detergent and dryer sheets. There is also a rod for hanging clothes with hangers provided.
There is a large mudroom with it's own access into the house. There is a long handmade mountain bench for getting those skis or muddy shoes off, boot dryers for ski boots and lots of shoe trays. Many hooks in this room and throughout the entire home. You will also find a beverage center in the mudroom for all your beverages, allowing more space in the refrigerator located in the kitchen.
The outside deck is a great place to be anytime of day. The hot tub seats six and is quite comfortable. We have an electric grill/smoker. We have seating for several with seating around a fire pit just steps off the deck. Again, all with amazing views.

Just a 15 minute drive away is Lake Vallecito. This lake is one of Colorado's largest. It is breathtakingly beautiful snuggled in between two mountain ridges and located just 23 miles northeast of Durango.
The lake has many game fish including Northern Pike, Salmon and Trout. The lake has a local marina and access to the lake is free for all types of recreation. You can rent pontoon boats, fishing gear and tubes Along the shore, you will find several eateries and small shops.
Durango has so many things to do! Including, the 1880's Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad - it's a beautiful and fun ride. Shopping Old Town Durango is fabulous as well. Durango also boasts more restaurants per square mile than even San Francisco.
Travel north out of Durango toward Silverton to drive the million dollar highway that leads to Ouray. It's quite the amazing and beautiful drive. Or stay in Durango for the dinner hour and enjoy the Bar-D Chuckwagon supper and show. Excellent golf courses and several museum round out this list. Just so much to do!
Purgatory Ski Resort is located just north of Durango. Great for skiing and snowboarding in the winter and in the off season, a great playground including zip lines, bunge jumping, gyro chairs, alpine slides, water runners, scenic chairlift rides, mechanical bull, climbing wall, miniature golf, family ropes course, mountain bike uplift, and so much more.
A two hour drive west and south from our home will land you at the Four Corners. Here you can be in four states at the same time....Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. The Navajo Indians also have several booths where you can shop their wears. Fabulous!
A one hour drive from the house is the Mesa Verde Anasazi Ruins. Often touted as a top 50 must see.
Pagosa Springs is 35 miles from our home. There you will find Wolf Creek Ski resort, shopping, river tubing, hot air balloon rides, golf and the healing hot waters of the springs.
Four wheeling/ATV riding is a must in our family and the possibilities here are endless. So many trails! We have a guide at our home that leads you to trails good for ATV's, snowmobiles, hiking, etc....
The San Juan National Forest and the Weminuche Wilderness has over 2.5 million acres of public lands.
Bayfield is a small quiet town, Perfect for our beautiful scenic setting with amazing views. In the town of Bayfield are several great restaurants, listed above. There is also a very nice park for the family where you can splash around in the Los Pinos River.
Fishing is also close by here in the Pinos River and Vallecito River. Both within minutes of our home.
For a little further drive, the Navajo Reservoir in Farmington, New Mexico boasts of some of the best fly fishing in the country.
And then, a further piece down the road (6 hours) is the Grand Canyon!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are a family of four from Oklahoma that travels with extra family and friends all the time. We love Colorado, especially Southwest Colorado and love this location and home! This location for us is so great because it's breathtakingly beautiful, the summers have the best weather and there's so much to to here, plus the winters are their own kind of gorgeous with the snow peaked mountains and all the great winter activities. This particular location is so wonderful because it's in a very peaceful setting with lots of privacy, but you can also be to Durango in 25 minutes and Pagosa Springs in 40 minutes.
