vacation rental description

We call our beautiful Colorado mountain home "Tatanka Lodge." Nestled among tall ponderosa pines on 35 private acres with a big wrap-around deck and views of the La Plata peaks, just 10 mins. west from downtown Durango. It is 35mins. from Mesa Verde National Park and Purgatory ski area. The main and upper floors are available for vacation rental with private entrance from the deck. 

The home is artfully decorated in mostly Southwestern decor. Living room focal points are a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a log sofa with water buffalo hide cushions. The dining room has an heirloom French Provencial dining set. Master bedroom/bath is on the main floor with kitchen, dining room, and living room; two big bedrooms upstairs with full bath and walk-in closets. Total beds: 2 Queens, 1 King, 1 Bunk = sleeps up to 8 with extra floor mattresses available. There is wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the house, dishwasher, W/D, TV/DVD, plentiful bed, bath linens & kitchenware. 

Relax on the deck to view the stars, the surrounding hills and La Plata peaks. Take an after dinner walk down the hill to a sweet little valley and easy trails. For more vigorous adventures hike the miles of mountain trails in nearby national forest lands, go for a horse ride, raft the Animas River, ski Durango Mountain (Purgatory), take the Narrow Gauge Railway to Silverton or stroll down Main St. with its art gallerys, clothing stores and various ethnic restaurants. Whether you take it slow or ride 'em cowboy there's always something to delight you in Durango.

* The ground floor apartment (with its own entrance thru garage) is occupied by quiet year-round couple (with 2 small dogs). Guests occupy the main 2 floors of the lodge with wrap-around deck.

* NO SMOKING in the lodge or grounds - loss of security deposit if butts or smoke smell found.
