About the property

Welcome to our secluded quintessential Colorado log home with comfortable mountain amenities to satisfy any family. Moreover, this home is centrally located to area's amenities. Enjoy gentle cool mountain breezes in the summer and magnificent snowy portrait-like views in the winter. This home is situated on 16 private acres and has direct access to an additional 1.8 million acres in the San Juan National Forrest. The hiking and family exploring in the warmer months are incredible. This home has convenient access to historic Durango and the town's endless events and activities. A few minutes north, lies the Durango Mountain Ski Resort. Fishing at the Animas, Florida and other rivers are also minutes away. It is easy to make awesome family memories here.

This massive 4430 square foot has 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. The study can be used as a fifth, semiprivate bedroom. The home sits on top of the mountain with an altitude of 7300 ft. That is 800 feet above the town of Durango. The two-story home has radiant floor heat on separate zones for each living area. The master bedroom is located on the main level, off the main living room. There, a cozy king bed is surrounded by endless mountain views. A private master bathroom is well-equipped with its own tub and steam spa shower. Walk-in closets and separate water closet make the master bathroom the perfect retreat. The second floor provides plenty of room for additional bedrooms. Off the main stairs, a secluded second-story master with a king bed and a twin-over-twin bunk bed is perfect for a 4-person family to share. This room has its own private full bathroom including a tub bath.

On the opposite side of the stairs, an enormous bedroom holds two king beds and a twin-over-queen bunk bed. This 7-person room has a full bathroom (shower and separate tub with toilet). The game room is located off the 7-person room. Here, a ping pong table/air hockey table and a gaming station is surround by 2 additional king beds and 2 twin beds. This 6- person/gaming room has access through its own door to a full bathroom. Additional beds are possible in this room upon request.

In all, this house comfortably sleeps 19 people (21 if the study is used). All beds are either king, (two) queen or twin beds. Sleep is important, why sacrifice while on vacation??

Importantly, there are separate areas for children and adults. A gaming room on the second floor provides space for the kiddos to play their games while adults can socialize in the great room and watch their shows on DIRECTV.

On the main floor, a gourmet kitchen is outfitted with professional Viking appliances including a wine chiller and a warming drawer. A half bath is conveniently located off the kitchen. The private, oversized study is available for those who want access to the internet. Additional sleeping could be arranged in this room upon request.

The outdoor living space is endless. The 2000 sq foot deck can accommodate awesome family entertainment while enjoying captivating views of the red cliffs and the Animas Valley. Additional decks and space surrounding the property awaits exploring and relaxation.

For those who cannot sit still, hit the trails and explore nature out the front door. I cannot over state how awesome this property is. Compared to other properties, this one is central to everything. Here, you are not trapped at the slopes nor isolated in town. You are literally 10 minutes from town and half way up the mountain. Now if you forget something, you are only minutes to town.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

The house and location served our family of nine beautifully! Lots of room for the kids to be off doing their thing without hearing a peep from them in other parts of the house. Morning coffee and early evening cocktails on the deck over looking the Durango landscape of mountains and valleys! Exceptional night sky!

Amazing house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families stay here for 3 nights and it was the perfect house for us. The location is unbelievable! You are literally on the side of the mountain overlooking Durango. The driveway up to the house is not for the faint of heart, but so worth it when you get to the house. The house is furnished beautifully and we spent every evening on the giant porch relaxing in the Adirondack chairs. The kids loved having their own space with the game room/bedroom. The window unit fans worked amazingly well at keeping the house cool in the middle of July. In fact the first night we kicked them on and ended up turning them to fan mode instead of cool because the house got too cold. We had one minor issue with hot water and the owner responded immediately and had a plumber at the house to fit it within minutes. I can't wait to back to beautiful Durango and stay in the beautiful home again!
