Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps
The Nugget Cabin is located at 8850 ft. in the upper Animas Valley just south of Purgatory Resort. Adjacent to US 550 where winter access to the ski area, or summer access to popular tourist attractions is no problem. It sits on one and a quarter acres with a long wooden privacy fence along the highway.
The San Juan Mountains are a mecca for summer and winter activities. Located just 24 miles north of The Nugget is Silverton, CO. A popular destination with shopping, dinning, lodging, as well as an expert ski area, many 4wd mountain passes, hiking, biking and just about any outdoor activity you could imagine. Take the Million Dollar Highway from Silverton to Ouray for more fun in Box Canyon, The Ouray Hot Springs and many other activities. South of The Nugget you can spend the evening roaming Old Main Street in Durango. A little west and you'll find yourself at Mesa Verde National Park. A fun place to learn about the Native American culture in South West Colorado. South/East of Durango you can explore historic Pagosa Springs and relax in the Hot Springs. There are so many fun things to do all year round, you won't be disappointed any time you come! For further details about activities in the area during your stay please contact us.
With all the comforts of modern life, it is truly a cozy (although rustic) home to accommodate a small family, several couples, or honeymooners.
Established as a rental cabin in 1987, the Nugget Cabin has a
reputation as a clean, comfortable lodging for any of your year round

Adorable, comfortable, close to Purgatory
What a perfect place for a ski vacation! It is literally a minute from Purgatory and has amenities to help heal sore muscles. The hot tub was perfect before and after skiing. We threw stuff in the Crockpot then came back for a quick soak and lunch before returning to the slopes. Regina was very responsive and accommodating. My only complaint was that the coffee maker took forever. Everything else was wonderful! Will definitely be staying there again!
Snow close to the mountain
My boyfriend and I and another couple stayed here. It was cozy and perfect. 1 min drive to the mountain. The hot tub was great after riding all day. We will definitely be back. Thanks Nugget Cabin.
The cabin was quaint and the views were magical. Very close to Purgatory Resort yet it did not interfere with the privacy of the cabin. Lots of snow during our stay. The grounds keeper kept the driveway and parking pad plowed. Loved, Loved, Loved our stay!
We had a great stay at the cabbin, the house is so cozy and the land and view were beautiful. We cant wait to stay again.
I've been staying in cabins while on vacation for years and The Nugget Cabin is my favorite. I love everything about it: the location in Colorado, the cozy feeling, the hot tub, the privacy, the view, and the caretakers. Have already stayed there 3 times and plan on going back in years to come. It is 1/2 mile to the Durango Mountain Resort. Take day trips to Mesa Verde, Silverton & Ouray on the Million Dollar Hwy. or the Silvertron-Durango Train, or relax in the hot tub. It's all great!
