About Chris Hall
I grew up in Durango and moved back in 2000. It's a great place to live and raise our 3 boys. Michelle and I love the outdoors and spend lots of time hiking, camping, rafting, etc. The winter brings skiing and hockey.
Chris Hall purchased this House in 2011
Why Chris Hall chose Durango
This 6.5 acre property was once a much bigger farm established in the 1890's. Despite the growth in this area it still retains a rural feel while being just a few minutes away from Durango. There are dozens of mature fruit trees on the property including apple, pear, peach, plum, apricot, and cherry and lots of space for the kids to run around. We built our house in the north orchard in 2004 and I built the Cider House in the South orchard in 2011.
What makes this House unique
I built this home in 2011 using quality materials to create a comfortable and modern energy efficient house. In floor heating in stained concrete floors and good insulation keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. All new appliances, furniture, beds, etc.. It is sunny and bright and it is just a comfortable house. The covered porch is so great for sitting, eating, and looking out at the trees, the mountains, and the steam train chugging by in the distance.

Loved the property. Perfect size for 2 families. Had everything we needed and was in an excellent location. Plan to stay again!
Perfect for a family getaway! House is really nice and perfectly located. Had everything we needed and was well equipped- would stay again!
Very nice home and furnishings. Everything we needed was provided. Other homes were very close, but it is a quiet neighborhood. We took family pictures at the back of property with AMAZING mountain views.
Beautiful location, comfortable home, worked well for our group
This place worked really well for our group. It was comfortable and clean and in a beautiful location. The owner, Chris, was responsive and helpful.
Thanks. So glad you had a great time here!
Too Short of a Visit
We looked forward to staying near Durango as part of our Colorado trip and were sad to only have 2 nights there.
But our stay at the Cider House was fantastic and exactly as advertised. It was clear the owner takes very good care of the house and property. We had two families staying together and everyone thought it was extremely comfortable. If you're looking for a spot just outside the busy town of Durango, then the Cider House is a great option. Easy access to stores, grocery, etc and even better access to great hikes in the mountains.
Great house and location. The kids really enjoyed running and playing in the orchard. Definitely recommend staying at the Cider House!
