About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This newly constructed 650 square foot above garage loft replaced the old carriage house that was built in 1888. It sits off street behind our 2 story brick victorian residence. We welcome you to this historic neighborhood. It is an amazing location within walking distance of downtown, restaurants, bike path, trails, library, Powerhouse childrens museum, and other amenities. Enjoy your vacation in the beauty of this modern, fully furnished home. We have a fold out crib and stroller available and can provide toys for chidren of all ages upon request.

If you choose to walk to downtown the swinging bridge over the beautiful Animas River is only three blocks away offering easy access to all the restaurants and shopping that Durango has to offer.

A relaxing place to stay with a private deck overlooking a forested hill and a garden water feature. This home has vaulted ceilings and a modern kitchen with stainless appliances, fully stocked and all the extra things you might need to cook in house.

The spacious bedroom has a new king size bed with fine linens and down comforter. The bathroom is luxurious with a Carrera marble counter top, 18 inch tile floor and Subway tiled shower. It is accessorized with quality towels, soaps, and a hair dryer.

The living room is equipped with a double sized futon couch, flat screen tv, dvd player, 2 leather swivel chairs, and a library complete with games. We also provide wifi access.

The dining area seats up to six and can be used for dinners on those nights you want to stay in.

About Joe and Yona Delling

Both of us attended here at Ft Lewis College and while we have both lived other places neither of us had ever found a place quite like Durango. We have both now Lived in town for more than 18 years. Yona is a nurse at the local hospital and Joe is a fly fishing guide and carpenter. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to live and raise a family in such a unique location.

Joe and Yona Delling purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Joe and Yona Delling chose Southwestern Colorado

Ours is one of the few Victorian homes in the neighborhood built in the late 1800s. It required a lot of fixing up but the location and historical nature of the house was just too much for us to pass up. We finished construction on the Carriage house in early 2014 in hopes people would spend their vacations here and also as place for friends and family to stay when they visit.

What makes this bungalow unique

One benefit of the properties location is that it butts to a forested hillside, this means we have no alley or neighbors behind us. The deck of the Carriage house faces this hill and its common to see deer and other wildlife pass through. I think it offers a privacy and feel that's hard to find in a location this close to Main Avenue.

Amazing get-away!! Everything we hoped for!!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy and close to downtown. Our hosts were great and we felt like we had our own private get-away! Highly recommend if you are looking for a cozy place for two.

Great little loft apartment in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to say all the good things about this place because then it will be constantly booked and we won't be able to go back! It was our first time to Durango and we couldn't have chosen a better place. It looked brand new - remarkably clean and had everything you could need for a short or long stay. It was much larger than it appeared in the photos - we never felt cramped even with our two pups. Yes, it is pet friendly which is a huge bonus. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and allows for some lovely walks and deer sightings (and a raccoon and a neighbor's cat that wears a shirt!). It was a short drive to the old town part of Durango - you could walk it too. Joe, the owner, was quick with email responses and very friendly and helpful in person too- didn't bother us but was there if we needed him. We have already recommended it to our friends and would love to book another stay sometime!

I love this house so much I extended our stay. I would definitely stay here again. It looks brand new. It has been well cared for. Well designed and every detail has been thought of. The kitchen and house have everything we need. Joe and Yona are so wonderful!!

Great location for walking to downtown Durango shops and restaurants.

Beautiful place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Joe and Yona's place with another couple just after Christmas for a ski trip. The unit was gorgeous and had everything we needed. We had plenty of privacy too! The house was only a 20-30 minute drive to Purgatory and super close to downtown. If we come back to Durango in the future this place is at the top of our list. Plus they had two of the sweetest puppies ever, which is nice when you're missing your own! ;)

Great place in a great spot with great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Very comfortable garage loft apartment with a nice full kitchen. The hosts Joe and Yona checked on us a few times when we were coming and going to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed (we did!). It's a very pet friendly place; our puppy loved their dogs! It is in a perfect spot and is an easy walk to town yet quiet and peaceful. We'll definitely book here next time.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a hidden gem! We stayed a few days in Durango as one of our cities to visit during our Colorado trip. What a treat. Perfect, cozy accomodations, and amazingly wonderful and warm hosts Joe and Yona. This is definitely a place we will return to visit!
