Beautiful, dog-friendly home w/ large private hot tub - minutes from Durango!

Spectacular mountain views and quick access to a slew of outdoor activities are what you get when you stay at this five-bedroom, dog-friendly Durango vacation rental! With space for up to 16 guests (13 adults maximum, please), this home is perfect for large groups and features a private hot tub, a huge yard, and plenty of nearby outdoor recreation!

Located just five and a half miles north of downtown Durango, this home is perfectly suited for exploration both in town and in the great outdoors! Belonging to the Animas River Valley, the home offers quick access to whitewater rafting, fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, trail running, skiing, and so much more in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado.

With wood-paneled ceilings, pine furniture, comfy seating, and stainless steel appliances, the home’s interior looks and feels like a rustic cabin that’s been updated for the modern age. Enjoy an afternoon on the trails, then come home to watch a DVD by the fire on the living room’s flatscreen television.

Kick back on comfy leather couches while logs crackle in the wood-burning fireplace. Open your laptop and use the home’s WiFi to plan your next adventure while you sit in comfort. There’s ample seating in the living room for everyone, so play some fun board games or watch your favorite TV show together!

When it’s time to eat, whip up a feast in the home’s well-stocked kitchen, which features a refrigerator, microwave, oven, gas range, dishwasher, and other accouterments that will make the job easy. Meals are meant to be shared, so eat with your whole group at either the six-chair dining table or the three-chair breakfast bar. On crisp Colorado days when you can smell the fresh pine in the air, you could eat at the dinette set on the back patio, and there’s even a gas grill if you’d like to barbecue.

Great rest will come easy in any of the home’s five bedrooms, which all offer quiet and peaceful spaces to get the best night’s sleep you’ve had in a long time. Up to 16 guests (13 adults maximum, please) can sleep on a king bed, three queen beds, one double bed, one twin bed, and even one futon. Modestly furnished with items like knotty pine bed frames, reading lamps on nightstands, and mountain-themed decor, the rooms exude a comfortable coziness.

Other amenities of this home include a spacious entertainment room with a comfy oversized couch affront a media center, a washer/dryer, and a backyard hot tub for soothing aching muscles after a long day of your favorite mountain activities.

Speaking of mountain activities - if you can’t bear to hike without your trail-tested pooch, bring him along! For a small nightly fee, one dog is welcome.

If you’re visiting during the winter, make sure to bring your skis or snowboard for challenging runs on powder-laden slopes at Purgatory Durango Mountain Resort (just 22 miles north), or opt for a snowmobile tour of the area’s abundant backcountry.

Home to Trimble Hot Springs, epic mountain views aboard the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train, and a historic downtown with great shopping and local eateries, Durango has something for everyone. Kids will love skiing on fun snowbikes at Purgatory, while adults can browse clothing boutiques, eclectic restaurants, and other businesses along Main Street, only three and a half miles south of this home. There’s also plenty of area adventures on horseback, on raft or kayak, or by foot on hiking trails in Mesa Verde National Park (just 41 miles west).

So pack your bags and get ready for a fun-filled Durango vacation when you book a stay in this Southwest Colorado vacation rental.

We absolutely loved this cabin! Close to everything easy access clean and well maintained. Will be back again!
Carrie G. Oct 2018

Don't get me wrong the view from the front patio is beautiful, bet definitely will be staying somewhere else next year. Several windows didn't work currently. Shower has standing water from the last shower every time. Dirty hot tub, paper said its cleaned often...but I'm not so sure. Dust EVERYWHERE sinks, light fixtures some table tops. Entire bottom floor smelt of mold.We are from Texas so it would have been helpful in the house description to know there was no a/c only a 3 fans in the whole house, one that didn't even work. No tv in master bedroom even though one is showed in the picture. Would not recommend this house to anyone.
Manager response:
We apologize for our guest's experience at this home. It's an older home, but we're taking every step we can to make sure it's clean and ready for guests. We've recently deep cleaned behind furniture, kitchen, and inside cabinets. There is no A/C, and it's typically not necessary as we're in the mountains and it cools down significantly at night. The home can be kept cool by keeping windows open in the evening and closed, with shades down, during the day. We've repaired the window cranks, curtain rods, and we have a hot tub technician that services the tub weekly and more frequently as needed. Thanks!

This house is just adequate. We did not spend a lot of time there so it suited our purpose but would not stay there again. Not very well stocked. We ran out of towels. There were no knives that would slice steak we were getting ready to grill. Even had hard time with a cucumber. The glasses were small plastic ones like you get in a kids meal. Had problems with the cable TV. Would not recommend this as a place to stay if you would be spending much time in house
Manager response:
We apologize for this guest's experience with the home. We will be sure the home is well stocked so guests have all the amenities they need during their stay. There are now adequate kitchen items including sharpened knives and new drinking glasses. We've also inspected appliances like the TV to see that it is working properly, and we've recently repaired the window cranks as well. Thank you!

Spacious home for eight adults and six children. Each couple had their own room and the cousins all got to sleep over together in the bunk room. They had a great time! Nice large kitchen with lots of eating space. We put both tables together and everyone could eat together. You normally can't get that in a house.
Stephen S. Jul 2018
We had our entire family, our 6 adult kids and their families including grandkids on this trip so the 5 bedrooms, spacious kitchen, dining, and living room areas were great for gatherings. We did have a smaller 2nd house down the road along with this one. The hot tub was popular. The setting was quiet with great views. The owners appear to have neglected long term maintenance somewhat but the rental agency was responsive when contacted.

The beautiful red mountains

House was spacious! Great Location to Durango!
Lawrence B. May 2018
The house was very spacious and comfortable. It was tucked away in a quiet area north of town. Relaxing on the balcony enjoying the night sky and stars was spectacular, during the daytime the views were lovely. The kids took advantage of the hot tub out back and they also enjoyed games on the lawn.
The kitchen had everything we needed aside from a couple of small things- trash can liners, and paper towels.
We did have to call and request propane for the grill Saturday morning, after waiting about 4-5 hours and no propane. We called again, they put in another order and the guy arrived 30 minutes later. So no big deal dinner was only slightly delayed. The house can use some updates but overall clean and accommodating for our families. We would definitely return.

The spot is nice an convenient to durango.
Corbin C. Feb 2018
Really enjoyed the house. Less than 30 minutes to the ski resort and 10 minutes to downtown. Great location and well worth the price.
Sean R. Aug 2017
Stayed at this house with 6 other people, and we had an amazing time. Plenty of room for everyone. The house was in great condition, and the location was perfect for our trip. I would highly recommend staying here
Emily C. Jul 2017
Amazing place for a great girls weekend! Super clean and the hot tub was the best :)
Shawnna W. Jul 2017
Very comfortable place, nice view. We liked being out of town, but not too far! Furniture is comfy, kitchen is well equipped. Plenty of towels for a large group. No air conditioner if your here in summer, but there are fans in the rooms. Needs a few repairs to open windows, but overall very nice.
Manager response:
The property manager has ordered new window cranks so guests can get the windows open as soon those parts come in. Thank you!
Carli B. Jul 2017
The home was in a very ideal location--close to shops, but not too close. Many amenities and attractions were close by, such as Purgatory Resort, Rafting Outfitters for the Animas River, the Train Station, Lakes, Bar D Chuckwagon, etc. Our party of 15 had a wonderful stay--including elderly, younger children and teenagers alike. I loved how the kitchen had everything one could need, including a large refrigerator. They had thoughtfully equipped the house with a baby crib, high chair, extra air mattresses, towels, sheets, etc. In other vacation homes we have stayed in, it seemed like we would receive the bare minimum--not here!
Diana H. Jul 2017
Enjoyed our stay. The house was plenty big and comfortable for our family of 14. A few issues, bring your own pillows (theirs were flat), mattress on some beds should be replaced and bring fans,. no A/C. Downstairs shower has smelly issues. We also had a bear issue, getting into the trash. Keep an eye on kids and do not leave any food outdoors or windows opened, could attract the bear. Plus side, lots to do in the area and the house living areas and back yard was nice and comfortable. If they take care of the issues, would stay again.
Rhonda R. May 2017
We had a great family time! One thing I would recommend is to have first aid kit, you might of but just notice one around. Also to have firewood on hand, but we did go by some and left some for next family. Oh yes, what was hardship was the construction going on across the street, kids couldn't take their naps, was very hard from them to sleep, plus pulling out you really need to be careful, almost got into traffic accident.
Kalvin E. Feb 2017
Great renovations but needs updating on the outside.
Jorge F. Jan 2017
Great place... ????
Ky R. Jul 2016
This cabin is in a convenient location to town. Neighbors are nearby so it's not very isolated. There are 5 bedrooms, but 4 of them are very small. "Basement" shower is tiny and there is a smell after someone has showered. The kitchen, dining area, and back patio were nice.
Brenda B. Jul 2016
Thank you Vacasa! We had a great time staying in Durango. We really enjoyed the size of the home, the hot tub, the location and the common areas such as the kitchen, dining area, the yard and the family rooms. Everyone had a great time.
Anne & Bill D. Jul 2016
We had a family vacation and this house accommodated us very well. Plenty of room to eat together, play games, relax outside. The bed upstairs was very comfortable. It was close to town and the Animas.

The trip to Durango was wonderful. The view from the front deck of the property was stunning. The unit was clean and well maintained. We arrived during a heatwave and had to use several fans since there was no air conditioning in this unit. This property is close to town, but not too close. The community pool is fun for all ages, a visit to the Bar D Chuckwagon is and must as is the train to Silverton. The views of the river and mountains from the train are breathtaking!
The most enjoyable thing we did was visit the fish hatchery and museum. The ranger had great stories and lots of information. The kids also liked feeding the fish! We had a great week!
Taryn W. Jun 2016
This house is the perfect size for a large group. We did a family gathering here with 13 people and the house did not feel crowded at all. There was room for everyone. There were a few issues that needed to be taken care of when we first arrived. But Alex was extremely responsive and took care of them right away. He was great to work with!
Christy T. Mar 2016
This is a great place for several families to share. The kitchen and dining areas are large enough for family home-cooked meals. It was comfortable, roomy and clean and location was very quiet. We very much enjoyed our stay here!
John Y. Mar 2016
First time to the Purg. Usually ski Utah . Loved the mountain, the town of Durango and the overall area.
House was very clean but certainly not new . Needed more hangers and a couple of bedrooms really needed a chest of drawers. Beds pretty good.
Baths are a little weird as one is not very tall and one is a tub with a hand held nozzle like you find in Europe. Still , our party of eight guys found the house fit our needs very well and we would stay there again. Kitchen was well stocked, wifi worked well , it is only 3/4 miles to Durango and about 1/2 hour to the ski resort. Texas Bar B que is right down the road and is EXCELLENT. Steamworks is a brew house with very good food and local beer. Overall we loved the trip and it compares well with other trips. While we are hardcore powder skiers and while Purgatory does not lend itself to great powder skiing , we thought the groomed blues and black runs were some of the best we had ever skied and we are a very experienced group. Went to Wolf creek one day and were not impressed . Groomed runs are flat and short and the powder was hard and chopped up. If the resort had fresh snow it had potential to be an excellent glade skiing mountain. . The nice drive took about 2 hours on good roads and we saw a lot of game including many deer and elk.
Loved Purgatory resort!
Elizabeth I. Feb 2016
This house works great for families! The location couldn't have been better! The house is located right in between the skiing resort and downtown which was awesome. The house was super clean and spacious and I would definitely stay there again. Many of my family members stated they would stay again and recommend to others.
LaFraya M. Feb 2016
Overall, the house is nice and it is a great fit for a big family.
Sarah G. Jan 2016
Great location, very spacious, would defiantly come back. Stayed three nights, drive up from Santa Fe.
Erin T. Dec 2015
The stay in Durango was fantastic, with much credit going to Vacasa. We were accommodated for everything we needed in the house. The location was perfect to experience beautiful mountain views and quiet, but close enough to get to town or the grocery store if needed. We had several children and the space in the home gave us plenty of room to spread out and accommodate 4 families. We have made it a goal to come and stay every year!
