Not welcoming if you have a group of friends
This cottage was very charming at first sight I had discussed with the property owner that I wanted to have a gathering for Thanksgiving. I told her at least 8 to 10 people? she said it might be tight but she didn’t say don’t come.
Our grown children live down there as well as extended family and friends. We did not need to rent a VRBO we thought it would be nice to have a gathering place for everyone. Lanas website sounded like it was a farmhouse on 20 acres that was pet friendly with space. This sounded perfect. Her website is misleading the farmhouse is next to the road and she lives directly behind it.
Upon entering the farmhouse we realized the the floors were uneven in multiple directions depending on what room you were in. My sister has vertigo the only room she could be in was the kitchen and the bedroom. The hot tub was in terrible shape when we arrived It was cloudy, it irritated our eyes, skin and turned our silver jewelry black instantly. We chose not to complain about this and the floors.
After speaking to Lana on Black Friday we chose to leave early knowing we would be paying for the remaining 2 nights. I told her we would leave it immaculate. I always clean up My VRBO rentals this was no exception. Floors were mopped and vacuumed, beds were stripped and blankets folded. I took a video to show how clean we left it This property manager has chosen to hold our deposit back stating things that are not true.
Our Thanksgiving gathering there was beautiful full of love friends and family We did have a party we celebrated but I am a 57 year old women so this wasn’t a party of kids and everyone was gone by 11pm. I think Uber is more responsible than driving after drinking. I offered to put a pet deposit down once I realized I was supposed to put a pet deposit down But the manager had already made up her mind. She is unethical. When I told her I wanted to have a larger gathering for Thanksgiving she should’ve said no in the very beginning and I would have never rented her farmhouse.
Lana needs to update her website to say pet friendly with deposit. No large gatherings or anyone that isn’t renting is not allowed to stop by. It’s on the road and it is not private.
We wouldn't be having this conversation right now if you had been upfront and honest about the party you were planning on hosting at the Farmhouse during your stay. You made a reservation for three guests and no pets? I have been in the vacation rental business since 2003, have seven homes all with sterling reviews, and NEVER allowed or approved parties, including yours! On the website under Parties/Events the NO box is checked. The night of your party a neighbor called to report a large, noisy party going on at the Farmhouse. 8-10 cars, barking dogs, hot tub filled with people and many other people ubering in and out of the property. After talking with you on the phone you admitted to hosting the party and having dogs with you that were not approved or paid for. There were several issues to address in the house and outside upon your departure. Broken hot tub handle, broken start button on the clothes dryer, carpet stains, dog hair and urine in the laundry room, too many cigarette butts to count around the hot tub and front porch area along with numerous pieces of broken glass. Hot tub was filthy, had to be drained and scrubbed down.
Hopefully in the future you will be more honest, forthcoming, and respectful of other peoples property and treat each property as if it were your own...
Quiet, beautiful views, yet still close to Durango shopping, events & the D&SNG train experience. The Farmhouse was clean & charming. Owner was only an email or text away for questions. Full kitchen allowed us to cook & washer/dryer allowed us to stay ahead of laundry. We will definitely consider any of Lana’s properties in the future.
Thanks Leslie for the wonderful review on the Farmhouse! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Farmhouse or one of my other homes along County Road 250.
All the best,

Thanks for the nice review Linda. I'm always happy to hear you enjoyed our Farmhouse. Come and see us again sometime and don't forget those great pooches!
Beautiful Old Farmhouse
Stayed here several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our visit then. This time around did not disappoint. Loved sitting out on the patio in the cool mornings under the oak trees listening to the Durango/Silverton train whistle blowing as it moved North. The house is close to town but not too close. Quiet and peaceful and enjoyed the ambiance of the old farmhouse.
Thanks Steven for the great review and staying at the Farmhouse once again! I hope to be able to welcome you back to the Farmhouse or one of our other five homes along County Road 250 in the not too distant future! Until then..
All the best,
Nice & quiet
Very nice property and very well equipped. Owner has made sure you have everything you need for your stay and is very accommodating. Lovely quiet area. We had a visit from about 10 very large deer one morning in front yard...exciting!
