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.

Wonderful VRBO

  • of 5
This was our second stay at this wonderful VRBO. It is in a perfect location, close enough to Durango to be convenient, but feels very private and secluded. It had everything we needed... from the comfy beds, to the well stocked kitchen. We love this place and hope to be back again! :)

this is a lovely home with beautiful views and well maintained. It is outside the noise of Durango, but close enough for a half hour jot into town.

Perfect Summer Hideaway in Gorgeous San Juan Mountains

  • 5 of 5
This cabin and location really exceeded all my expectations for a summer get-a-way in greater Durango and the San Juans. I debated a lot on location. Close to town or somewhere just away from the crowds and tucked into a perfect mountain forest?. Choose to get away and select this cabin near Electra Lake. The cabins is about 30 mins from downtown Durango and the drive is gorgeous both up and down. We didn't get tired of driving and we did all the Durango mainstays -the DSNG railroad and Mesa Verde which did require some driving and time from this location. The best part was we'd leave the heat of Durango or Mesa Verde (about 1 hour) and escape to our cabin to find it cool and breezy. As for the cabin itself, it has everything as described. A perfect deck for grilling and a cozy/romantic hot tub. The sleeping rooms are spacious and beds very well appointed and comfortable. I particularly liked the kitchen and layout. Was easy to fix quick meals with adequate counter space, very nice oven/stove and comfortable seating for 4 around the large round table. This cabin also balances the need for privacy and also feel like you are not alone in the woods. It is set down into a simply stunning forested neighborhood with high end log cabins and lovely vacation homes around. But it faces the back of the ridge in such a way, you get plenty of privacy on your deck and hot tub. One morning while drinking coffee we saw a beautiful pair of Mule Deer come through the back. Finally, if you haven't been to the San Juans of Colorado but visited other Colorado mountain communities, be prepared to be blown away by the San Juans. They are simply stunning at every turn. High, ragged and gorgeous. Comparing them to Switzerland is not an understatement and I have been going to Colorado for over 25 years. I simply fell in love with the area and this spacious and delightful cabin is the perfect base camp to explore them. Your hosts are also lovely and gracious and will answer any questions. They provide a lovely guide of their personal favorites of the area - hikes, attractions and restaurants. We felt so welcome and confident in our stay.

Quaint little cabin

  • 4 of 5
This little cabin was the perfect place to enjoy a week in the mountains. There was a lot of snow on the ground when we arrived, and while there, two more feet of snow arrived. The cabin was furnished well, the beds were fairly comfortable. The sauna and hot tub were an added luxury. We enjoyed our stay!

The cabin was excellent. The upstairs bathroom was a bit tight for hubby as he is tall and wide shouldered and it is narrow. The kitchen was stocked well but did wish there were a few more spices for cooking. We enjoyed seeing the deer and elk outside each evening. For you hunters, we saw two bucks that were eight and ten pointers! The only down side to our stay was that Electra lake was closed and we had to drive a short way down to Haviland lake to fish.

Location

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.
