What a lovely vacation home! Perfect for a family retreat and making memories. The clean spacious and inviting home was super comfortable and stocked with many items not expected (paper plates, napkins, foil bags, spices) and saved us a bunch of shopping and expense. The outside fire pit was a blast and we saw so much wildlife...(not the kind in bars;) you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home. Close to Durango yet wonderfully secluded from town. Many nearby things to see - Mesa Verde, 4 Corners, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Durango, etc. We appreciated the quiet of the area and would certainly return again if we're in the area.

Pro's: secluded area near the lake, close to Durango, kitchen stocked with basics. 2 bedrooms plus loft and 2.5 bathrooms

Con's: 1 bathroom is in the basement area but this really isn't too inconvenient

Excellent house with steep road about 45 minutes from Durango.

  • 3 of 5

The house is on a mountainside looking out over lake Vallecito. The house and the view are wonderful. The house has everything just as promised and is very clean, comfortable and well cared for. The house gets a 5 star.

The one-mile unpaved road to the house gets a 3 star. The road was plowed but parts were steep and slippery anyway. An excellent 4X4 with snow tires works on roads like this. We stayed over The Christmas holidays and had difficulty getting to the house. The weather was snowy all week and one section of the road has a 30-35 degree slope. We had to stay in a hotel one night and ended up changing rental cars twice (Jeep Cherokee 4X4 didn't work well) until we finally got a four wheel drive (4X4 Four Runner) that made it up the slippery slope. We had no problems driving with the 4X4 Four Runner.

The drive to Durango from the house takes at least 45 minutes. So make your plans accordingly. I thought the house would be closer to Durango.

This is a wonderful house with a great view but is 45 minutes from Durango and you need an excellent 4X4 with snow tires in winter conditions.
