Colorado Night Sky From Hot Tub Not To Be Missed!
Fantastic getaway with gorgeous views and lots of privacy. Cozy accommodations equipped with all the necessities. We only wished we could have stayed longer! Thank you
If you are looking for a little off the beaten path.. THIS IS IT!!
Beautiful surroundings, No traffic, no neighbors, just gorgeous countryside. Woke up one morning to see the snow falling outside the big bedroom window. Completely private with a great view of the stars at night, while relaxing in the hot tub. Not far from Durango at all. We saw Deer and Wild Turkeys roaming the meadows. PERFECT escape.
What a great place to relax in the peace and quiet of the mountains. Such a beautiful property and home, with a great kitchen set up and a pot belly stove to keep you warm.
Very Quite and Relaxing
We had a wonderful stay at this quite peaceful ranch. Gary was very hospitable and accommodating. Its an easy drive to Durango and even easier to Bayfield. Lake Vallecito was also close and very beautiful. There were several roads and plenty of land to explore during our morning walks. We would absolutely recommend this rental to friends and family. Thank you Gary for letting us stay at your beautiful ranch.
Great location, and great host!
In between Durango and Pagosa, so able to visit both. Gary was great. The barn loft was just right for my husband, son and I.
Beautiful property, cozy loft
We spent the majority of our Colorado honeymoon at the Coal Basin Cattle Company property, and loved it. We never met Lauretta, but during a brief encounter with Gary, he was friendly and quick to offer us advice for staying warm in the loft and access to firewood in the barn.
An instruction sheet was left in the loft with helpful tips and reminders. Much appreciated! We loved the private access to the hot tub, and enjoyed breakfast outside on the patio one morning. The bedroom window faces a field and the wooded back part of the property, so we often slept with the blinds up and woke up to beautiful mountain sunrise views - one day we even spotted a deer and some turkeys.
The kitchen comes equipped with pots, pans, and dishes for cooking/baking, as well as some non-perishables in the fridge and pantry. I would recommend getting your supplies from the City Market in Durango before settling in, as it is about a 30 minute drive to town (there is also a grocery about 15-20 minutes away in Bayfield, if you are coming from/headed that direction).
One thing that I wish was more apparent on the site description: there is a wood stove, and that is your only source of heat. Coming from a large Texas city, this was a new concept to us and we endured a freezing first night before getting the hang of the stove. After a day or two we found out the bed has a heated mattress topper, however, I think it might not be working anymore. Maybe we're just wimps ;).
Overall, we adored this place. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
