Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property that accommodated our group very well!

Red Cliff Properties did a great job in finding us this property, as our original booking was evacuated because of the fire!!

We traveled to Silverton daily for numerous activities there, as no accommodations were available for our large group there.

We rode the short train trip from Rockwood to Cascade Canyon. All of the restaurants in Silverton were great! Special Thanks to Jenna at Red Cliff for her help.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in wooded, secluded setting. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful mountain views. Fire table on large porch was a great place to sit on a summer evening. The kitchen is a cook’s dream with gas appliances. Hiking trails just down the road. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing house. The house is beautiful, and is located in an equally beautiful spot. The house is spacious, has beautiful views, and is very comfortable. There is an amazing kitchen for those that like to cook on their own. The house is also located near tons of awesome activities. Overall, an excellent place to stay.

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE, but difficult to get to in winter.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is huge and so comfortable for a group of 12 and a baby. Aside from the shower leaking into the downstairs bedroom and there not really being enough heat downstairs, it is very accommodating.

It should also be noted that if you are planning to reply on chains instead of snow tires, it can be very cumbersome to constantly put on and take off chains because the highway going down to Durango is well maintained (plowed), so you have to take off your chains. The 2 mile dirt road up Purgatory Lake Rd to the cabin is not and it can be very steep and icy.

PS. Broken Handmixer = Lumpy potatoes.

fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a really great house. Secluded and quiet. The living space and kitchen are amazing. The house has a really nice view that you can enjoy from the inside or by relaxing out on the deck. Thank you to the owners for sharing this lovely home with us.

This home is a Durango vacation treasure. We had 11 family members enjoying Fall Break together. There was plenty of space, beautiful scenery, an awesome kitchen, and a large deck with a phenomenol view and cozy propane firepit. The master suite was extremely SWEET! I would highly recommend this vacation home.
