Overview

About the property

A unique and cozy home perfect for vacations, retreats, and sabbaticals.

Overview

Escape to the tranquility of this gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath modern Colorado retreat. You will enjoy spectacular views for miles in every direction and from every room in the house or while sitting outside on one of three outdoor decks.

The Space

High in the Durango Hills neighborhood adjacent to the San Juan National Forest, you will immersed in the surrounding forestland yet be just a short drive to Durango.

This 2,600 sq. ft. home will sleep about 8 adults with no kids OR up to 6 adults and 4-6 kids. The house has one bedroom on each floor, plus a fold-out sofa bed in the living room, a sectional day bed in the movie room (a great sleeping area for an older kid), a crib, and an air mattress. - Pak-n-play crib with changing table that can be moved into any room. - A high chair and booster chair for meals. -Some toys, books, and puzzles (best for ages 5 and under).

We have several kid-friendly amenities including: a) small kids "project table" with 2 benches for drawing or doing puzzles, b) two kids' sleds, an enclosed "kinder shuttle" sled with adult harness, and one pair of kids' snowshoes, c) a treehouse with zipline, d) movie room with video projector and giant pull down screen, and d) a large hammock on the front porch for inducing naps!

The house stays cool in the the summer (due to gentle mountain breezes) and warm in the winter (due to three gas-burning stoves, 1 wood burning stove, and a 2-story solarium 'wall of windows').

Guest Access

Guests to this retreat will have full access to the entire house and 3 acre property (including forested area and meadow), basketball hoop and paved play area, kid's tree house with zipline, and walking access to nearby U.S. Forest Service hiking and biking trails.

Getting around

This house is perfect for enjoying all that Durango area has to offer: spend an afternoon or evening in downtown Durango (15-minute drive), or day trips to Lake Vallecito or Durango Mountain Resort (both a 45 minute drive).

NOTE: The house is a 30-minute drive from the airport. The last 3 miles are on a gravel road with several turns and grade changes. Any car or truck can navigate the road during the non-winter months. But all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive is ESSENTIAL in the winter months, and snow tires are HIGHLY recommended.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of three adults and three kids had a wonderful time in the Durango Hills. The cabin is very spacious and nestled in the woods. The kids saw Wild turkeys and a Marmot from the deck. We had fun mountain biking on the bike trails right off the property and skiing at Purgatory Resort. The movie room with the big screen was a hit with the whole family. The owner was very helpful with any questions we had. We recommend this property to anyone who loves the outdoors!

Absolutely awesome

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have enjoyed our time any more than we did. House is nestled in the hills and was an absolute winter wonderland! Got to sled and snowshoe around the neighborhood. House easily accommodated 4 adults and 2 kids. If in winter definitely need snow driving ability, snow tires, chains, etc. Street goes straight uphill. Host is fantastic and made sure to check in with us and had great local suggestions on resources. Already trying to plan a trip back.

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment our family arrived at Jeremy's lovely cabin, we felt home. The house is well appointed with gorgeous views in every direction. Jeremy was available and responsive to any questions we had. The movie projector was great for the kiddos! We would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Durango.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is great! It's got great light, beautiful location and all the amenities you could want. Jeremy was easy to contact... the keys box was easy to use.... the only warning is that the road leading to the house is a bit rough... glad we had A4M x 4... overall we loved it

Fun Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our three children had a great time in the Durango Hills. The property was spacious and clean. The property had plenty of space for the kids to explore. The tree house and zip line were a huge hit with the kids. Jeremy was very responsive to any questions we had. He was a great host! We would recommend the property to families with kids for sure.

Beautiful home and setting!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at vacation rentals frequently - this one definitely stood out. The home itself is beautiful, wonderfully laid out. And the setting was truly enchanting. We hope to stay here again next year!
