      Fall getaway

      We had a great time. Bill and Bonnie, the owners, were wonderful and very welcoming. Bonnie welcomed us with a delicious batch of chocolate chip cookies. The location was perfect. Close to town but just far away enough to enjoy your evening seeing the stars and listening to the stillness. We will be recommending this place to our family and friends and we are sure to be back!

      5/5 Excellent

        Great stay in Durango

        Spent a great week here. Beautiful completely private spot overlooking Durango. Fully equipped kitchen, horseshoe pitch, cool mountain breezes at night.

        5/5 Excellent

          A slice of Heaven!

          Our stay could not have been more pleasant! The house was immaculate and very comfortable! The owner, Bill, greeted us by name as we arrived, and each time we crossed paths. He was so personable, he made us feel quite at home there. The remote quietness of this mountain top retreat was a blessing to be sure! The beauty of the nearby mountains and valley below just blew us away! During our stay we saw a double rainbow that stretched out over the town of Durango. Incredible! We certainly wished we'd booked longer than our 3 night stay. We would like to plan a return visit soon. Gratefully, Kevin and Teresa Meyer

            Fabulous place to sta

            This is the second time we have stayed at this property and loved it just as much as the first time. The views are amazing. The apartment is perfect for us and our two children. Bill and Bonnie are wonderful hosts. They set up the house so that it would accommodate our rambunctious 1 year old (they put up a baby gate when they knew we were coming, had a pack n play ready, and the one room was full of toys and books). The amenities are in great condition. Our girls loved the horses. It is close to town and on the way out to the national park. All in all, another great stay and we will be back again soon!

            5/5 Excellent

              Beautiful hilltop views, close to many activities

              Mountain Memories is on the second floor of a working barn, which is part of its charm. Everything on this farm shines with care. After traversing up the private gravel road (don't worry, we made it in our little rental), we were met by the owner Bill who showed us around, explained how everything worked, introduced us to the horses and dogs and even helped carry one of our bags upstairs. We stayed 3 nights and would do it again. Everything worked and was well stocked and beds were very comfortable. We explored Mesa Verde National Park (about 45 minutes away), Durango and hiked part of the Colorado Trail which is only minutes away. Bill was a perfect host, helpful, but unobtrusive and it is a unique property. Stay there if you get the chance!
