About the Property
Riverstone Ranch House Located In The Beautiful North Animas River Valley
The three bedroom, two bathroom Ranch House includes hardwood floors, stone fireplaces, a sunroom, and fully equipped kitchen and laundry. The home sleeps six people, with two queen beds and two twin beds, and has three televisions, telephone, and internet service.
You won't want to be inside though with a large patio and fireplace just outside the back door. From the patio, enjoy a babbling brook which meanders through the property most of the year. A lounging area complete with fire-pit, water features, and a beverage center beckon from out behind the barn. View the wildlife that saunter through the property including deer, elk, wild turkey, ducks, geese, and the occasional bear. Whether you prefer gathering around a fire or snuggling inside with a book, serenity abounds.
Once you've had all the relaxation you can take, choose from among the many activities the surrounding area has to offer. Play a round of golf at Dalton Ranch just a few miles up the road, then recharge with drinks and dining at Dalton's clubhouse. Durango is just fifteen minutes from the Ranchhouse. Enjoy shopping downtown or, if you're a train enthusiast, hop the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train, which can be seen from the RiverStone Ranch property chugging along the mountain side on its way to Silverton. If you're staying with us in the summer, hike the many trails the area has to offer or raft the Animas River. If you're.a biking enthusiast; the Ranch House sits on the most popular biking loop in the Durango area. If you're staying with us in the winter, Purgatory Ski Resort is 15 miles north. On your way back to the Ranch House from a long day of skiing or snowboarding, stop by Trimble Hot Springs for a relaxing dip.
