Why Laurie Strong chose Bayfield
The Deer Trail, where the stress of the world melts away. We are located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains at beautiful Lake Vallecito Colorado. For your adventurous lifestyle with clean, fully furnished, comfortable cabin. Whether it’s for a wedding, family reunion, anniversary, birthday, holiday or just a retreat, we have the perfect cabin for you.
What makes this Cabin unique
There’s never a dull moment when you visit Southern Colorado! You can dine at the four local restaurants, most of which are in walking distance. Depending on season, rent a boat at the marina or ATV/snowmobile at the base of Middle Mountain road. There are trails and fishing galore as well as hunting and exploring. In the winter there is cross-country skiing and ice-fishing. These are a few of the endless activities Lake Vallecito has to offer. There are many other attractions in the Southern Colorado area. Just a few ideas to explore are Four Corners Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, Historical Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad, The Million Dollar Highway, Purgatory Ski Resort, Wolf Creek Ski Area, Pagosa Hot Springs, The Bar D Chuckwagon and so much more.

My family and I absolutely enjoyed the home it was perfect!!! Thank you
We stayed for a week in this cabin ( 2 adults and 2 kids). We loved the location. It is secluded and at the same it’s conveniently located within an hour to all activities that we’ve planned: train station in Durango, Purgatory resort, Pagosa Springs, and water rafting in Durango. It’s a short walk to a river and kids also lived outdoor swings. We watched deers every day walking by and the best of all - no cell phone connection. Loved it!
Thank you so very much for your review . We are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope your able to visit again soon.
Very clean and nicely decorated.
The only drawback was that the master bedroom was in the loft, so anyone who needed to use the bathroom in the middle of the night had to go down a spiral staircase. Fortunately, there was a smaller bedroom right across the hall from the bathroom. We really enjoyed the home and would opt to stay there again.
Thank you for your review and for staying with us. We appreciate your note you left. We definitely hope to see you guys back again in the future!
A great place to stay, very clean, and had everything we needed! The lake was wonderful! We had a blast
Thank you for your review! Hope you guys can visit us again soon!
Great family getaway
Enjoyed our family time at this cabin. The community is very quiet, and the cabin is on a beautiful wooded lot. Our kids enjoyed exploring the space around the cabin, and the swing. The cabin is small, but cozy. Everything was very clean. We would definitely return again if visiting Durango area.
