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 20 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 Durango

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.

Joe & Yona were amazing hosts! They thought of every little thing and made our stay so nice! We were traveling with our two teenage daughters & two dogs. The carriage house was a perfect setup for our needs. It was nice being able to cook in the fully-stocked kitchen or head out to one of the many restaurants close by. We loved the area and wish we lived closer. We would definitely visit Durango & stay at the Carriage House again!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is right in downtown and walkable to many places. The space was great for us and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Our dog especially enjoyed the treats Zoe and Sugar left to share! We would definitely stay here again.

My little family of 4 really enjoyed staying in the carriage house loft. The neighborhood was great, especially the 6 deer roaming around the yards and the big playground within walking distance. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Durango! Clean, updated and perfect for us.

Great property, very welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Carriage House Loft over Christmas week. The rental is in the back, over the garage with private stairs and deck/patio. The one bedroom space fit us well as it was just two of us (plus a pooch). The living room had a futon so there would be room for another person, if needed. We had everything we needed - pots and pans, knives, cutting boards, mixing bowls, dishes, towels, etc.

The weather was unseasonably mild (50 degrees and sunny) so we took advantage of the quick 10-15min walk to the downtown area quite frequently. There were lots of places to eat and coffee shops. On the way to downtown, there's a nice walking path on the river. There are also very close mountain biking and hiking trails just west of the property (inside the neighborhood behind the garage actually), which were perfect and a great surprise :)

We would definitely stay here again when we are back to Durango!
