About Ron Bevil

My wife and I both came to Durango area in December, 1999. I grew up and spent most of my life in Chicago, but always had dreams of retiring in Colorado. Katya moved to Durango from Saint Petersburg, Russia. It took us just about 7 years to finally meet, fall in love, and settle in together at this beautiful mountain lake in a little log cabin located next to the rental properties I manage. We love our simple life here on the lake with our dog Korbin and our kitties Sqaush and Oliver - enjoying the serenity of the lake from our deck or a pontoon boat, hiking with Korbin on a beautiful trail or taking a ride in a tandem kayak. Our favorite place to go for food or drink is Pura Vida Café which is about a half a mile from the cabins.

Exactly what I expected

  • 5 of 5

No issues whatsoever. The stay was exactly like I expected it to be. The candy n is wel stocked with cooking and eating utensils. Beds are comfortable, even if they lack frames. Water in the bathroom was hot enough for all of us to take showers I. The morning. We especially enjoyed the fire and BBQ areas outside and the huge comfortable couch inside. Property manage was very quick to respond and made it easy to access the property when we arrived late into the night.

I didn't love it. No frills

  • 2 of 5

I rented this cabin while my niece and her family rented one of the other cabins by same owner. The other cabins are so much nicer. They have internet and TV and a Lake view. This was quiet but interior was dated with no frills. For the same price I would recommend renting one of their other cabins.

Clean, perfect location, great size, well furnished, and cozy! We were this way for a family reunion. While everyone else was in tents at a camp site we were in this comfy cabin. Ron was wonderful to work with. Everything was easy, and we had a great experience. I saw on other reviews they were concerned with no doors. There were doors on large room and bathroom. Only two rooms were missing doors, and our kids stayed in those rooms and it was perfect. It's not a big deal at all! I actually liked the openness. I also liked the clean look of the windows. I can't say enough great things, and I am a picky person. This is a wonderful find!

just the right amount

  • 4 of 5

Just got finished staying at green acres, dont worry about the other reviews regarding the doors and window covers, it was just fine, plenty of privacy and the bathroom had a door so did the master room upstairs, this place was great for the $$ per night, had all the right items inside and the washer and dryer was great for the kids to clean off their cloths. It was a nice stay.

Clean, comfy, but few things needed

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and comfy but doors and drapes on the windows would be nice (especially in bathroom and bedrooms) since there are other cabins nearby. Our stay was great once we got there and was close to nearby restaurants! We really enjoyed the large deck to hang out with other friends staying in the area for our friends wedding! We luckily got there in daylight which was good since the owner gave us the wrong address twice. We had the wrong house number but we're able to recognized the cabin from pictures posted.

Beautiful location

  • 1 of 5

The address listed on the booking materials was the wrong address. Called the owner who gave us a second wrong address. Found the cabin by mistake or we would have missed our first night. We booked the cabin for 5 days and immediately (within 5 minutes) tried to change the reservation to 2 nights. There was no listed cancellation policy on the website. When we contacted the owner he said to call VRBO as they had not even forwarded the reservation to him yet. We called VRBO and they told us to call the owner, which we already had done. They went ahead and processed the payment and then the owner only gave us a partial refund despite no published cancellation policy. The. Cabin was decent. The location was beautiful. VRBOs booking system does not lend itself to booking on short notice.
