Guestbook comments from the owner

Guestbook comments: Beautiful, cozy & comfortable home away from home!

Thank you! Our group of 12 fit so comfortably in the BEAUTIFUL Tall Spruce House! The kids were delighted to have an instant sledding hill & the adults felt relaxed among the many cozy rooms. The hot tub was a hit as several of us chilled out in it before retreating to our slumber spots! Thank you for such an awesome family vacation!

Perfect place for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to express our great appreciation for the wonderful accommodations provided by Tall Spruce House during our stay December 31, 2012 - January 5, 2013. All 22 members of our immediate family - arriving from four different states - descended on a Monday and stayed through Saturday. Our large group of children had a ball sledding down the gentle slope in the snow-covered front yard. Cousins got to know one another, our children caught up on all the latest news, and we all shared fun times in this large, spacious house! It is clean and neat. We had all the necessities available to us in the various bedrooms and bathrooms. As family members took turns preparing meals for our large group, we found that we were well supplied with dishes, pots and pans, spices, appliances - everything we needed was at our fingertips.

Lisa is conscientious in providing for her guests. She has suggested interesting things to do in Durango. She met us as we arrived, told us to call her if we needed anything, and even left us some cookies and a tin of gourmet nuts along with a few instructions on the kitchen table. We would highly recommend the Tall Spruce House as a very special place for you and your family to spend quality time.

Perfect for Large Gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

This home supported 22 people very well. Hot water was hot. The hot tub was hot! Heat and air worked. Beds and linens were comfortable and high quality. Front deck was perfect for gatherings and meals. Lawn was immaculate with lots of fun yard games available.

The location was perfect, allowing easy jaunts into Durango while being situated ideally for exploring the high country near Purgatory and Silverton. Several in our party enjoyed the convenience of adjacent Trimble Hot Springs (discount provided with the home). Others enjoyed wildlife such as deer and bear around the property. Also, the Bar D Chuckwagon was close and very enjoyable for the whole gang.

The manager, Lisa, was attentive without being overbearing. She insured our check-in went smooth. House instructions were clearly marked throughout the home or contained within a binder. She checked in with us midweek and again the morning of our check-out. Although not needed, she encouraged us to call should questions arise.

Great home, ideal location, superb vacation!

Fantastic Youth Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

24 of us stayed here on our Spring Break Youth Group Ski Trip. The house was wonderful and the kids enjoyed having the room and ability to spend time together instead of in hotel rooms where we are always separated. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to set up enough tables to share our meals together. The living room was big enough for all of us to gather at night so we could have a worship service. We loved the Tall Spruce house and would love to come back and use it again. The slopes at Purgatory were only 15 miles away and very easy to access. Definitely a great stop. Thank you Lisa for always checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed. It was a great trip and one the youth will not forget. Rev. Heather Reed First Christian Church

Comfortable stay outside Durango

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of multiple families with kids staying at the Tall Spruce House over President's Day weekend. The Tall Spruce house was a great size for us, especially with the bunk bedroom upstairs for the kids. The kitchen and dining rooms were fully stocked and sufficient in size. Everything we used was in good working order including the hot-tub.

Lisa was great to work with. She contacted us before, during, and after our reservation to make sure everything was working out. She responded to emails quite quickly.

Overall, we loved our stay there and would recommend it to others!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a ski weekend and everyone was excited from the minute we walked in. The house is only about 20 from the mountain and less than 10 minutes from Durango. The layout is great, the rooms are great, and everyone had a fantastic time. Thanks for everything, Lisa!

The house was amazing and really suited the needs of our family.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice in all aspects. The kitchen was great to cook meals in after a long day skiing and plenty of room for everyone to get together and talk about the day. The pictures of the house on the website was the deciding factor in my decision to rent the house and the pictures were very accurate and I felt like I knew the rooms of the house before we even got there! The owner had provided a note book with instructions and had place cards around the house to give additional information to help us enjoy our stay. She even called me to welcome us and let me know she had replaced a blind on the door. I had informed her that we would be arriving later in the evening and when we arrived the lights were on in the house so we did not have to try and find our way around in the dark. I could go on and on about this property and the owner but to sum it up if you are going to Durango, Colorado and need a house for a large group, (we had 15) then you could not find a better place to stay! We enjoyed some of the best skiing and shopping in and around Durango. We all agreed that the next time we come to Durango we will be staying here again. So don't pass this house up to stay at!

Durango is a beautiful small town in southwest Colorado with numerous activities and attractions. During the winter months you will find skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling & sleigh rides at nearby Durango Mountain Resort. Or choose to ski at Silverton Mountain or Wolf Creek, both about an hour away.The narrow-gauge train to Silverton, Trimble Hot Springs Spa, Mesa Verde Indian Ruins, live melodrama, cowboy dinner show, rodeo and numerous music festivals are just a few of the favorites in Durango. Other Rocky Mountain activitires nearby include fishing, jeeping, golfing, river rafting, horse-back riding, cycling, mountain biking, hiking & hunting. Two lovely high-country lakes are within 10 minutes from the home and the Animas River runs through the glacial-carved valley where we are located, great for world-class fishing, along with numerous high-country streams. Our guests enjoy special rates for skiing & hot springs spa passes.
