    About this property

    Mid-century Themed Home on River Perfect for day to Durango or Mesa Verde

    Family-friendly vacation home in Durango
    This newly remodeled, mid-century themed home has large windows inviting in the outdoors. This area is steeped in history and this site was homesteaded as a stagecoach stop on the Spanish Trail. The long time owners have included local history and color in the decor, including stories about western author Louis L’Amour who enjoyed picnicking by the river, mid-century stories about mountain recluses, tourism promotion, and more. After a busy day touring, rest by the river, watch the wildlife, or bar-be-que. More active guests may want to play horseshoes, cornhole, frisbee or badminton/volleyball. Young and old will enjoy the scavenger hunt of hidden surprises. At the end of day, retire to comfortable beds and quiet, cool nights. In the morning watch for deer or turkeys while enjoying coffee on the porch. We strive to have this as a comfortable home base as you enjoy all that the Southwest has to offer. We would like to welcome you as our guest.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer DVD players and video-game consoles. Accommodations offer separate living rooms. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and hair dryers.
    The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

    5/5 Excellent

      Great place to stay

      We used this house for our Elk Hunting trip. Had 5 guys and plenty of room and good kitchen facilities.

      5/5 Excellent

        Excellent for a family with kids.

        Clean, comfortable, and cute house. Nice location in between Durango and Mesa Verde. Our kids loved the scavenger hunt and painted rocks they got to keep as a prize. It was nice to have the open space to let them run around. Some minor quibbles are due to the home’s age and probably unfixable (squeaking floors and soft water pressure in the shower) but overall a great place and would stay again.

        5/5 Excellent

          Cozy and Quiet

          This was a great place to stay. It was nice and quiet with wonderful sounds of nature. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay.

          5/5 Excellent

            Beautiful property

            We enjoyed the house and property. Outdoor space is wonderful and the house was perfect for our trip. The owners are very nice and always available if needed.
