Perfectly quiet

  • 4 of 5

We loved the secluded location of this cabin. It afforded us a much needed time out to unplug and recharge. Gorgeous trees and abundant wildlife. Although the cabin is near a lake it does not have access to the lake.

Beautiful location...a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, we will stay here again! The cabin offered a quiet, peaceful, remote location with all the amenities of home! The location of the cabin between Durango and Silverton made options for hiking and ATV rentals to see the amazing sites of the Rockies numerous and perfect! It was difficult to leave such a beautiful place!

Great cabin in the middle of the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My hubs and I loved the Deer Ridge Cabin, north of Durango! It has a rustic charm, but with all the modern conveniences. Very private/quiet location in the woods in the middle of the San Juan Mountain Range make this cabin a wonderful retreat from hectic day-to-day life activities! It was also located in an area a short driving distance from many National Parks and Forests. And, Durango has so many great restaurants and shops! After I posted our vacation pics on social media, many of my friends asked how I found the cabin, and that they would be interested in it, too! Plan to go back sometime!!!
