Guestbook comments from the owner

Lives up to everything it promises. This is a beautiful property that the owners have obviously taken great pride in maintaining. My favorite activity was dimming the back lights, and sitting in the hot tub on the back deck with a view of your own personal planetarium.

Phenomenal vacation!

  • of 5
My husband and I rented the cabin for a long weekend to celebrate his birthday! It was such an amazing stay. The cabin was just what we thought it would be. It is so remote and cozy-- looks just like the pictures. The hot tub is so nice!! There is a perfect sledding hill, which we thoroughly enjoyed using while playing in the snow with our dog. Super pet friendly place. It is the perfect location-- close enough to access Durango when needed, although we only left the cabin once to buy gloves to play in the snow. However, it is remote enough to feel very relaxed and removed from the hustle and bustle of life. There was no snow in Durango, but there was a solid two or three feet at the cabin, which was perfect for us to play in. I think it is the ideal location if you are looking to get away from it all and just relax! Would go again in a heartbeat!

Our Favorite Durango Stay

  • of 5
Roxanne & Steve are the best., making sure the drive & decks were all clear after the great snow fall. With a wonderfully furnished cabin for 6-8, it was just my husband & I with our Great Dane Ares, enjoying the great skiing w/ a foot of fresh powder & 7 full days of pure bliss. We Enjoyed a night out but mainly dining since the cabin had all the tools needed to prepare a healthy meal, followed with a sit in the dry sauna to warm our cold bones or just relaxing in the hot tub or both. We'll be back in 2015. Thxs fir a great place to stay creating even better memories of our trips to Durango.

PS when the snow thaws you my find your neighbors dogs bright green rubber bone. I think Ares buried near the drive way .

Wonderfull Cabin with winter activities just a few minutes away!

  • 4 of 5
Very much enjoyed our stay at this secluded Mountain Cabin. It is located in a beautiful area away from the busy lifestyle most of us have come to experience on a daily basis. It is very well furnished with all the luxuries you need for a weekend getaway. Very close to Durango Mountain and within a few minutes of excellent food (Old School House and Sow's Ear). Thanks for recommending these places. Make sure you call for a reservation to the Sows Ear and call ahead for a pizza at the Old School House. The only negative with our stay is that the hot tub was not ready when we arrived and had to wait until the next day to use. One of the main reasons we chose this property over others was the fact it had a hot tub and we were really looking forward to using it after a great day of skiing and snowboarding. Did not get to use the sauna, but it looked very inviting. Overall, we did enjoy our stay and would recommend this property. We look to make this trip every year and would like to stay here again. Thanks to the owners for sharing this wonderful rental

Great Cabin and Fun Time!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed there just before Christmas this year and had a great time. Owners were great and answered questions we had. Beautiful property and very cozy accommodations. Definitely recommend it! We hope to go back this summer. Snowed heavily the second day of our trip, and the property was a winter wonderland!

One word of caution, 4WD vehicle is definitely recommended in winter. We were able to get up the hill on snowpacked roads, but were only able to make it the last few hundred feet because we brought chains for our front wheel drive Honda CRV. (and we put them on to get up the last incline)

lovely cabin getaway

The cabin and setting were beautiful. Very cozy for winter time, a huge hot tub, and although the neighboring properties are somewhat close it felt very secluded. I'd highly recommend it.

Activity and Interests

Winter Activities: The San Juan Mountains is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the country. You can sit in the hot tub on the back deck and see the snow-covered peaks. Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) prides itself for being a family friendly resort for Alpine skiing and is a short 6 mile drive. Snowboarding, Alpine skiing, and even ski biking are available. Outstanding Nordic skiing is available across the highway from the resort. There are many guide services offering snowmobile, snocat, and sleigh ride experiences.

Dining: The Sow’s Ear restaurant is the favorite fine dining experience on the mountain as well as a great place for a burger. It is located among the Silverpick condos on the way to Durango Mountain resort. The Schoolhouse across from the Needles general store and gas station should not be missed for outstanding pizza and great Durango microbrews. In the summer, there is fine dining on Electra Lake.

Summer Activities: Summer time in the San Juan Mountains is spectacular. A hike amid the wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife in the high country is unforgettable. There are numerous trails that will inspire you. Mountain biking is legendary in Durango and during the summer, the high country offers many wonderful trails such as Hermosa Creek Trail. Electra Lake is a great destination for fishing and they charge a very small fee for its use. The lake is over 6 miles long! There are many other picturesque lakes in the area for public use. Durango Mountain resort offers many family activities including an alpine slide, mountain biking, and chair lift rides. A scenic drive north to Silverton or Ouray known as the Million Dollar Highway is jaw-dropping. There are Jeep tours of mining towns, rafting, fly fishing, and the famous Narrow Gauge Railroad are available. Tamarron Resort Durango is just 6 miles south of the cabin offering an 18-hole championship golf course. The resort is still at 7,600 feet elevation making it usually 10 degrees F cooler than Durango and offers a cool alpine escape from the summer heat.
