Unplugged, dog-friendly getaway w/tree-lined views, & private yoga studio

Give yourself and your loved ones a break from the hustle and bustle, while you revel in the peace that surrounds this dog-friendly Durango retreat. Boasting a private detached yoga or meditation studio as well as tree-lined privacy, this the perfect spot to get away from it all.

Set 16 miles from the heart of Durango, and only seven miles from the Vallectito Reservoir, you won't have any problem finding fun things to explore. During the winter we recommend using a 4x4 vehicle to access the home safely.

Vaulted wood-beamed ceilings and a wide-open floor plan let the abundance of light showcase all of the crafted wood accents. Cuddle up with a good book while the you listen to some vinyl tunes on the turntable. The private washer/dryer will take care of any laundry that you may have during your stay.

Step out on the deck with an ice-cold brew and kick back in the Adirondack chairs while you take in the tree-lined views.

While your guests lounge on the bar stools at the breakfast bar, you can get to work on dinner in the fully equipped kitchen. With stainless steel appliances, crafted counters, and a dishwasher to help with the cleanup, keeping everyone fueled up and on the go will be a breeze. After dinner head back out on the deck to watch the stars come out with an indulgent nightcap.

When it's time to turn in, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom home has room for up to four guests and one canine companion under 60 pounds (for a small nightly fee). On the main level you'll find the master bedroom with a queen-size bed waiting to lull you into a restful night of sleep. Upstairs in the large loft bedroom, there is another queen-size bed as well as a small sitting area.

Wake up with the warm sunshine and walk down to the small detached meditation studio to start your day. With the privacy of the forest as your backdrop, your time will be filled with peace and tranquility.

Spend a day exploring the picturesque trails that run through the San Juan National Forest. Then head over to the Vallectito Reservoir to kayak along the shores, or maybe cast a line in the Animas River to take some time to unwind. Treat everyone to a night out at Steamworks Brewery while you dive into a seasonal flight of microbrew suds.

Leave the daily grind of the city behind, and let your batteries recharge as you unplug at this Colorado relaxing getaway.

When you imagine the type of cabin you would love to stay in, this place is it! I would definitely stay again!

Magnificent views, birds, quiet, small critters - very comfortable accommodations, music (33 1/3rd and 45 rpm vinyls), classic literature, coffee table books, and tourist guidebooks.

My first road trip to Colorado was in 1950, and I’ve stayed in many cabins and motels in the 70 years since — and I’ll definitely return to Cabin Tranquilo if it is available (and if I remain ambulatory!).

First off, ignore the poor reviews, these are from the city slickers that can’t even read simple instructions given to them in the cabin binder. We loved this cabin, during our 4 night stay we were able to experience snowfall every night. Unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy the wonderful view from the balcony until our final morning but, the fireplace, records, hot coffee, and the snow made up for it. Wife was not happy about the cabin being cold(55-60 degrees, it was 30 outside) but there were plenty of space heaters and after an hour with the fireplace the cabin was nice and comfortable. We highly recommend this cabin if you want to get away from the city, busy streets, and loud tourists. We will be returning as soon as we can.

My wife and i loved this cabin very much. Spectacular views, tranquil and a feel of relaxation like no other. The cabin has everything you need in a house and its very cozy. We would definitely go back for another weekend. It's truly an amazing Cabin.

Beautiful cabin, well kept and had everything I needed. Nice to get away from the TV set. Little seasonal creek was running, making a soothing sound.

Loved the view!

The cabin had everything we needed. We went in October and the heat was limited to 63 degrees which was cold. If we were told how to crank up the wood stove to provide better heat then it would have been better. We figured it out on day 2.

The cabin was really nice. Sitting out on the deck was so peaceful.
Larry T. Jun 2018
One of the best porch views you’re likely to find, in a cabin still close enough to town to be convenient. This place was perfect for us.

Lovely home, great views, proximate to Vallecito Lake Trail.

Beautiful scenery! Quiet and relaxing atmosphere! Enjoyed being unconnected via internet and television but phone service available. Second day before we realized there is no clock!
William P. May 2017
This cabin is well maintained, nicely furnished with simple comfortable furniture and accessories that are lovely native inspired theme. It's a perfect mountain retreat that you won't want to leave ! The views are lovely. There is no TV or Internet but it has a lot of nice personal touches the owner has shared with visitors like an extensive record collection, interesting books, well stocked kitchen with spices and yummy coffee and other things to add to your meals ! There is a nice deck to relax on and a charming meditation room ! We definitely enjoyed our week there and plan to return when we can.

We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful mountain home. Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay here with beautiful mountain views and no wifi or TV. We loved the record collection and the wonderful deck!

Nice remote cabin in the woods. Almost no one around this time of year. Cozy and comfortable place. It does require 4 wheel drive and decent clearance to get to this time of year.
