Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Durango - Guesthouse/cottage

- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4-6

This private, cozy cottage is nestled on a 19 acre parcel in the East Animas Valley, just a couple of miles north of the Durango city limits. You will enter the property through an electronic gate and continue on a 500 foot private road towards the Red Hermosa Cliffs. Beyond the cliffs is nothing but picturesque forest service land for hundreds of miles. On the property there is a private, covered tennis court for your personal use and high speed internet!

This secluded property, only 2 miles from Durango, is in a beautiful river valley abundant with tall Ponderosa Pines and enormous oaks. At 6500 feet in elevation there are great views of the La Plata Mountains with a perfect combination of warm winter days and cool summer nights. Plus you are only a 25 minute drive to the Durango Mountain Ski Resort.

This home is beautifully furnished with antiques and art. The main floor has vaulted ceilings and large windows to show off mother nature's beauty, and also contains a comfortable queen size sofa sleeper. The master bedroom and bath are on the first floor, and a second bedroom with private bath is on the second floor. The granite countertop kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs, or you can barbeque on the west covered porch with the gas grill.

After a long day exploring this wonderful area, relax in the luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub and enjoy dinner on the large southern deck. Only 30 minutes away, visit the astonishing cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde.

Lana-

You have done a wonderful job decorating and equiping the "Cottage" for your guests! We were very comfortable and really enjoyed our stay.

So much to do and see in the Durango area. Looks like a wonderful place to live!

We'll be back!

Superb place to get away from it all!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed staying in this Durango home last summer! As Harley riders from Texas, this property doesn't get any better! You are in the heart of fantastic rides and can come back to soak in the hot tub in beautiful weather. The home feels miles away from it all, but was still close enough to everything you wanted to do. The privacy of the property is a plus, as is the tennis courts and plenty of space for horseshoes. The owners are very hands-on without being intrusive and are so wonderful to share this piece of heaven with others! Trust me, you won't be disappointed! We're already planning our next trip!!

Our Stay in Durango

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful experience staying in the "stone cottage," actually called the "Carriage House." It was even better than I had imagined. Lana was great to work with, the cottage was impeccable, and this was an awesome & peaceful location still very convenient to downtown Durango. We will definitely be back and next time we will rent the darling and award-winning "barn house"!! We loved Durango and the fall leaves!!!! You won't regret renting from Lana through this website.

My husband and I really enjoyed The Cottage beautiful location . The cottage was very comfortable and clean with wifi and direct TV. Close to Dalton Creek golf course with great restaurants too. Just a ten minute drive from downtown Durango and the train to Silverton. If we ever return to durango we would not hesitate to contact Lana again and hopefully we could stay at this lovely cottage again. Jim and Jan from Texas

Clean cottage in a beautiful setting.

  • 4 out of 5
The cottage was comfortable and clean. The setting was beautiful and very private. The owner had provided everything we needed to make our stay very pleasant, and also gave us information about where we could catch some trout. We would be happy to stay there again.

Beautiful cottage, great location!

  • 5 out of 5
My family really enjoyed our week at the cottage. It is comfortably furnished and very private with the trees and the beautiful red cliffs. A great home base for all the area attractions. We enjoyed playing tennis with the kids and the hot tub was nice after a day of hiking or biking. Wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature!

Talk about the perfect location! Your backyard is the acclaimed Red Hermosa Cliffs where numerous Red Tail Hawk nests thrive. Your front yard is pasture land overlooking the Animas River where herds of elk can be seen on numerous days. On the quiet county road you will see many bicycle riders, runners, and walkers. Enjoy the private, covered tennis court and luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub.

Take a hike behind the cottage and be rewarded with magnificent views of the city of Durango and the river valley. Don't forget to ride the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad!

This is truly the perfect location in Durango! You are close to everything while still in a private, cozy setting.
