Mountain view cabin with two private decks, near Purgatory & Electra Lake!
Spend your days fishing along Electra Lake, hiking through the trails, or hitting the slopes when you book your next mountain getaway to this Durango retreat. Boasting a private location, you'll have easy access to outdoor adventures, and stunning tree-lined views.
Located six miles south of the Purgatory Resort, and a little over 21 miles north of Durango, you'll have a beautiful blend of privacy and convenience at your fingertips to make your stay stress-free.
The contemporary cabin decor is accented with charming bear characters and crafted wood pieces. Kick back on the soft leather couch while you check out what's on cable or watch a DVD on the flatscreen HDTV. Cuddle up by the wood-burning stove with a good book or your special someone.
Step out on one of the two view-filled decks to take in the stunning sights while you sip a tasty beverage. Stream some tunes over the WiFi as you slowly slip into vacation mode.
The galley-style kitchen features everything you need to keep your group fueled up and on the go. With plenty of room for a culinary assistant and a dishwasher to take care of the cleanup, creating your culinary delight will be a piece of cake. Eat at the wooden dining room table and then sip a nightcap on the deck to watch the stars come out. Fire up the outdoor grill to try out a favorite BBQ recipe that will please the whole crew. The third bedroom is the spacious loft, located just above the living room.
When the snow starts to fall, make the drive to Purgatory Resort. Offering a wide variety of downhill runs that cater to all skill levels, you won't have any trouble finding wintertime fun to delve into.
During the warmer months, you can hike the picturesque trails down to Lake Electra. Set up your rig, and make sure you pack a lunch, then set out for a day of fishing along the banks of the lake. Try your hand at catching a trophy-size trout. If not, you'll have plenty of time to come up with a good story before you head over to Steamworks Brewing for a few pints and a mouthwatering meal.
With so many opportunities to experience the wonders of the great outdoors, the only hard thing will be knowing where to start when you book your trip to this Colorado cabin.

We had no idea that this cabin would be so perfect! The views from the deck and windows was terrific. A family member needs wheelchair accessibility and this home was great. The directions to find the house were fine, but it would be difficult to find the cabin after dark. We would also suggest that you go to the Grocery before driving out of Durango. We found the kitchen to be well equipped and handy. All in all a memorable place to stay.

We spend each August at the Primrose Cabin and love it! Our time is spent visiting Silverton, Durango and the many San Juan National Forrest areas. The nearby Haviland Lake is one of our favorites. The cabin is equipped with everything you could possibly need. Food is the only thing you will need to buy. There is a very large family / living room area with a dinging table that easily seats 8 and another table for a small group. There is a special reading niche next to the windows overlooking the Animas valley. As everyone has mentioned the view from the deck is spectacular. This year we got to see a lot of wildlife right from the sunroom. The sunroom is all windows and is a great place to have coffee and watch the sunrise. On several mornings there were deer (they are huge in Colorado) eating in a group of trees not 30 feet away. We also had a special visitor late one afternoon. A Bear came moseying out of the woods and came right adjacent to the sunroom. All in all it was another great relaxing and exciting vacation.

This cabin was exceptional. The home was designed, decorated and well supplied with great thought. When we drove up to the cabin, it was beyond our expectations. The view from the balcony was amazing and the sweet smell of the spruce trees in the cold/cool air made you relive the thoughts of Christmas. Would definitely stay here again.

Very clean cabin with amazing views off of the back porch. They are serious when they say 4WD is necessary in winter/early spring. Road to the house has a 17% grade. Will stay again!

Enough space for a family of six. Great location to travel to Durango, the mountain resort, or to Silverton or Ouray. Beautiful quiet views. Kitchen to make breakfast and dinner. Our family very much enjoyed our stay.

Awesome cabin. Beautiful view!

My wife and I absolutely loved this cabin and lacked NOTHING during our stay here. The cleanup fee is a little high along with the booking fee but the place and views made up for it.
jaime s.Oct 2018
This house was absolutely perfect. The views were amazing, the house was extremely cozy. Kitchen furnished to the max. We do wish the porch had a gate for the kids but other than that it was amazing. We will definitely be back!
SUSAN S.Oct 2018
WE LOVED THE WAY THE CABIN WAS ARRANGED AND FURNISHED. THE VIEW WAS SPECTACULAR . WE WILL BE BACK.

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at Primrose Cabin. Everything about this cabin was wonderful. From the furnishings to the appliances, and of course the view, it was just a great place to relax and take in our surroundings. Very comfortable. Usually online pics are better than reality but in this case I think reality was better than the pics. We loved our stay and hope to return again as soon as the opportunity presents itself.

Great view off the deck

The Primrose Lodge is a perfect place for a Colorado vacation. The facilities are the best and the view is unmatched. Located on Spruce Mesa above Electra Lake, the cabin is close to a whole host of activities such as skiing, fishing, canoeing, visiting historic Silverton and Durango, or just resting and reading. We especially appreciated the all new appliances and flat screen televisions. The cabin's Wi-Fi system has been upgraded to a remarkable speed. The highlight of each year for us is always staying at the Primrose Cabin.

Wonderful cabin with fantastic views!! Plenty big for a family of 6 with 2 bedrooms and a loft. Ate our meals on the beautiful balcony. We would definitely come back and stay at this cabin again.
David B.Jul 2018
This was a beautiful home and was just right for our family of 6. It was very clean and in a peaceful setting. The view is great and and the cooler temps were a nice break from our Texas summers. The kids loved counting the number of bear decorations in the house! Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for helping us make some fun memories on our Colorado vacation!
Lewis H.Jul 2018
The cabin was really nice and cozy. The view from the deck was awesome. Would love to stay there again. Loved all of the bear signs.

What an excellent week! Views are amazing from this house! The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and coffee making (we were able to cook a full Thanksgiving meal). Plenty of seating in living area. Dish TV and board games and outlets for charging electronics lol! Skiing 5 minutes away. An entire room for storing ski clothes. The property manager just a text away and she is excellent! Close enough to Durango for Walmart runs and Dinner in town. Stars are big and bright at night, just like these Texans like!
Janice C.Sep 2017
Very comfortable home with plenty of towels, dishes, appliances in good working order, beds comfortable, TV's in every bedroom and a big screen in spacious living area with great views of the valley and surrounding mountains. Would definitely come again!

There are a couple of sayings in the mountain that certainly apply to the Primrose Lodge. One is that "If you are lucky enough to be in the mountains, you are lucky enough." The other is that "the mountains are calling and I must go." The time we spend at the Primrose Lodge is the highlight of our year! My computer screen saver shots are filled with pictures taken from the deck of the cabin. The view down the Animas valley are priceless and change in beauty from sunup to sundown. The cabin has three bedroom areas and a very spacious family room. There is a dining room table that can easily seat eight but there is also a small table perfect for game nights. Near the patio doors there is a nice niche for reading and just looking at the mountains. The property is hidden in the mountains but is only a few minutes away from Haviland Lake and the Rapp riding stables. You can get into Durango in about 20 minutes and Silverton in less than an hour. Durango Mountain Resort is about a ten minute drive. The cabin sits at 8600 feet so even in August most nights are in the high 40s before it warms up to pleasant 70s during the day. To make the Lodge even nicer, the Primroses are installing all new appliances, new family room furniture, and new larger flat screen TVs in the bedrooms. We love the Primrose Lodge.

We loved it at Primrose Cabin, and we were so sad to leave!
The cabin is beautiful, and my son loved sleeping in the lofted bedroom. It was a great experience! Both of my kids loved sitting on the back deck, and also loved sitting in the mudroom to watch the chipmunks, squirrels, and deer.
The location is perfect, and was a great jump off point to get to Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Ridgway, and Gunnison. There was good fishing at Haviland Lake, and Gold Medal fishing at Gunnison (about 2 hours north of the cabin).
Downtown Durango was a great place to visit for a few hours. Carver Brewery has tasty burgers, fries, and homemade root beer, and Maria's Bookstore was great for whiling away time looking at books and toys.
There are so many great things to say about our trip, and we will be back to visit again soon!!

They are one and the same , just love the place our second stay in 9 months, the goodie or Welcome bag is a really nice classy touch. Now the view is EPIC! The neighborhood is just a forest with a nice little road that runs though it, been coming to Durango for 30 years and this place just rocks it out of the park.
Cody P.Apr 2017
This place is an absolutely amazing place to stay. The pictures do not do it justice. It is secluded and peaceful. Perfect place to disconnect from regular life and unwind.
Kelsey G.Jan 2017
Had a great time staying here. The local property manager was not very responsive, I had several calls to him with questions or need for help that went unanswered and unreturned. Other than that the cabin was amazing and in a great location, very cozy. Would definitely stay again.

This proper was in a beautiful location with an amazing view. Truly a Colorado experience.
