About this property

Incredible Riverfront Home 5 Minutes From Downtown Durango!

Historic vacation home with fitness center and spa tub
House on 8 private acres of Riverfront, just 5 minutes to Downtown Durango, 25 Minutes to Ski Area, 20 minutes to airport or land your own plane a mile away! Please contact us for availability as the online calendar limits bookings to one home (with 2 homes available, we are usually able to accommodate you). Welcome to Rio Angels' Retreat! Enjoy eight gorgeous acres of private river-front property only five minutes from downtown Durango, Colorado. Here you will find two fully furnished homes, situated steps from the river amidst beautiful trees and enchanting landscaping. Each house boasts its own outdoor stone firepit, picnic areas, and a fabulous riverside nature trail that runs the length of the property. Surrounded by the majesty of the La Plata Mountains, the soothing sounds of nature and the view of the Animas River flowing through the front yard, the Rio Angels property is sure to inspire good times and relaxation for everyone. Rio Angels is a beautiful riverfront estate on the Animas River. Located just 5 minutes from downtown Durango, Colorado and in easy driving distance of three great ski areas, this hidden treasure is close to all that Durango has to offer, yet is tucked away in a private country setting surrounded by stunning mountain views and 1600 feet of private water with fabulous fishing. There are two wonderful houses on the estate; Ariel's Nest sleeps 4-6 and Gabriel's Cabin sleeps 6 - 8. Both houses offer multiple river-front decks, as well as outdoor firepits and outdoor seating areas overlooking the Animas River. Both homes have central heat & air, are fully furnished and offer a well equipped kitchen, laundry room, hi-speed wireless internet, satellite TVs, and much more! The homes are far enough apart for our guests' privacy or can be rented together for large groups and events. Far enough to get away from it all, yet only 5 minutes from the fabulous sites, restaurants and shopping of downtown Durango and a great starting point for all the hiking, fishing, hunting, rafting, skiing, biking and exploring the Four Corners area has to offer, Rio Angels is the perfect place for the whole family. We also offer complimentary day passes to the Durango Recreation Center for our guests to enjoy indoor activities such as swimming, lazy river, hot tub, climbing wall, workout facilities, etc. Ask us about our great deals for weddings, company picnics, business seminars, hunting and fishing parties, group retreats, and family reunions.

5/5 Excellent

    Loved our time here!!

    Pics don’t do it justice! It was the perfect set up and location for young kids, mother in law and dog. Loved being by the river every morning and sitting and drinking coffee on the porch. Cabin has everything you would possibly need and owner/host is very responsive and accommodating. We would love to come back with more family and rent the adjacent house for a reunion!

    5/5 Excellent

      Love it!!!

      We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy cabin! It was very clean, nice and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again!

      5/5 Excellent

        Wonderful place!!

        We just spent 5 days at Gabriel’s Cabin. It was perfect! The cabin was clean, well stocked with the essentials and totally charming. We were a group of seven and were very comfortable. The location is perfect! The property is beautiful and provides everything you need. We built a fire outside every day with plenty of wood waiting for both the house and outside. The location was convenient to everything in the area. We are definitely returning in the future!
