About the property

Loft with king bed, queen hide-a-bed, 1 bath, sleeps 4

Rented by the month only November through April, call or email for availability. Carter's Cabin is a uniquely wonderful cabin offering a cozy and comfortable getaway nestled in a serene and private wooded estate on the Animas River where you can enjoy the prolific wildlife where rarely has a day gone by without deer wandering through the yard or the foxes coming out to play! With approximately 1200 sq ft of space, a living/dining area large enough to seat up to 10 if needed for small business meetings, or family gatherings, full kitchen, and a bedroom loft that is uniquely appropriate for a businessman who wants more than a hotel room, small family getaways, or friends gatherings.

In the winter, the woodstove can provide a warm focal point on a cold evening. In the summer, a porch in front or back will provide fresh air and cool breezes and a view of the beautifully manicured grounds. Feed the huge catfish in the pond. Sorry no fishing in the pond, but you can fish in the river. A gas grill allows for relaxing outdoor dining. Onsite amenities include tennis court, volleyball area, golfing area, fishing and a very private biking, walking, or jogging paths and stables are available for your horse. And the best part is it is located only 6 blocks from the Animas Valley mall!

This home is equipped with a washer/dryer so you need not pack a lot of clothes for an extended stay. In addition to the King bed in the loft there is a pull-out sofa bed in the downstairs living area. For your indoor entertainment, there is a flat TV along with a Blu-Ray DVD player. Internet is available to keep up with what's going on in the outside world. Stables are available for rent. Daily maid service is available at an additional cost. This is a NON-Smoking home!

Beautiful cabin with peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is enormous! with a very high ceiling and a beautiful crafted staircase to the bedroom. Which has a very large bed with a firm mattress (I love that).

Kitchen has everything you may need, WiFi is very fast, lots of sockets for your gadgets.

I had rented this cabin for two days but I asked Rose if I could come in one day early because the rental I was staying in then was a big disappointment.

Sure! she said. And: come in any time. So no 'but check-in is at 3 PM'.

Rose couldn't be there that first day but she invited me to walk around the grounds saying there was a lot of walking to be done if I felt like it.

That first day I thought she meant: the lawn (which is very large by itself), exploring the picnic pavillion, saying hi to the horses, looking at the tennis court.

Walking down to the river.

It was only on the second day that I discovered there was a lot more to be explored right in front of my house. So many paths into the woods that I was afraid that if I did not pay attention I would get lost.

I saw a female deer with her two fawns every day. I heard birds, I saw some in the scrubs.

Birds of prey that were flying over the property.

I loved looking at the fish in the pond. Some are very big. You are even allowed to feed them.

I felt totally at peace with nature here - which is very important to me.

About Rose! I can't think of a better host!

She totally got it when I said I wanted privacy but when I had a problem she was there just a few minutes later to solve it.

I can't recommend this place enough.

In fact I am already considering going back.

This is a huge beautiful wooden structure.

  • 5 of 5

This is not a "cabin" from the inside,it is a great hall, double height, with three large settees,a dining table and chairs and a kitchen with vast furniture all combined in a glowing wooden structure. The beams are whole trees.

Overlooking the area below is a bedroom with a large, comfortable bed, a window to give light and a second large television.

The bathroom and toilet are well equipped, although the fittings remind me of my childhood, with a bath on legs and a toilet flush operated with a chain.

Outside there is a vast garden of lawn and walks down to a lovely river where one can look across to the warm golden hills in the evenings.

Farmington is a modern town in which everything is accessible by car. There are interesting places to visit, Indian pueblo sites from the past and more modern small frontier towns. There are country walks with strange rock formations, parks and museums. Then the cabin is a wonderful place to which you can return for a home made or ready made supper.

Outside the cabin is a pond with fish, some of which are very large.

The property is very well maintained and Rose is a very responsive hostess.

Perfect, serene getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My significant other and I decided to take a last minute Labor Day trip, and Rose accommodated us even with less than a couple hour notice.

The property was exactly as described, if not better! We brought our mountain bikes to enjoy the vast trails, which begin right outside the front door of the cabin. We were able to ride to the Animas and fish from the private access to the river.

During our stay we were having issues with the Direct TV, but Rose took time out of her day to come over in person and resolve it.

Rose was very responsive and friendly. We will definitely be returning for future trips!

Great week end stay with the family.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over a weekend and had a great time. The kids loved the donkey and the pond with the fish. I had fun hitting some golf balls just out the back door and walking the trails.

So beautiful we didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time just exploring the property and the gorgeous views it offered. The cabin offers everything you need and more. This place was far better than we had imagined. The Owner was helpful and offered advice. The location was convenient to everything. Hope we can return soon. Loved it!

Anniversary bungalo

beautiful cabin by the river. Spent our anniversary here with a trip up to Durango during our full day here. Quiet and relatively secluded with all the amenities.
