You don't have to pitch a tent in the mountains or hunker down in an off-the-grid cabin to experience a relaxing vacation far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. When you stay at this three-bedroom vacation rental, you'll enjoy a beautiful forested setting, as well as the comfort and amenities of a gorgeous luxury home.
This historic property is located 15 miles north of Durango and one-and-a-quarter miles from Highway 550, so you aren't too far from the conveniences of civilization. The eight acre property, which is partially grazed by cattle, features one aerated pond just outside the front door, and another pond and irrigation creek in the back cattle pasture. This beautiful home is also just 14 miles south of Purgatory Resort, creating a wonderful escape for skiers and snowboarders.
Inside, this vacation rental combines modern, upscale decor with traditional cabin-esque touches. Expansive windows and vaulted ceilings bring lightness and balance to natural stone finishes.
When you enter the home, you'll find yourself in the living area. Notice the comfy couch and the gas fireplace - in cold weather, there's no better place to curl up with a good book.
From the living room, step into the open kitchen, which features ample counter space, a farmhouse sink, and a full host of appliances including a dishwasher and a six burner Viking range and oven. With such a beautiful space to work in, you'll be glad for the chance to cook at home .
Eat in style at the six-person dining room table in the next room. Afterward, retire to the couches at the other end of the room for a family movie night using your Google Chromecast, Netflix, and other streaming services on the smart TV. You can also catch up on your social media profiles using the complimentary WiFi.
This rental includes a private washer and dryer, so you can keep your clothes fresh and clean no matter how long your stay. There's also a spacious office on the first floor, great for anyone looking to do some work in private.
Just behind the house, the remnants of the 1940’s stone smoker add charm to the patio. Admire the picturesque barn set against the mountain backdrop as well as the historic stonework and outbuildings from the back patio while you watch the cattle graze in the pasture just beyond the stacked aspen log fence. Depending on the season, relax with an evening beverage while watching the snowfall, or admiring the many goldfish in the front pond from the covered front porch. By summer the pond is encircled with blooming flowers and the apple and apricot trees in the backyard are bearing fruit.
When night falls, up to six guests can sleep comfortably in this home's three bedrooms. On the first floor, a master suite features a king-size bed, a gas fireplace, and a private bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bathtub. The home's second full bathroom is also on the first floor.
Head up the spiral staircase to find the remaining two bedrooms. In one, you'll find two twin beds, perfect for kids. The other bedroom, which includes a queen-size bed, is a loft-style bedroom and overlooks the main living area.
As far as entertainment goes, Durango has no shortage of pastimes. Take a leisurely walk around the property, admiring the lovely views of the San Juan Mountains. Go fly fishing or swim in the Animas River, which is less than a mile from your front door at historic Baker’s Bridge where the cliff-jumping scene from the movie, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” was filmed in 1969. Enjoy mountain biking or hiking at one of the numerous nearby trails.
If you do feel the urge to spend time in town, Durango itself is a mecca of restaurants, local breweries, local shops and of course home to its most popular tourist attraction – The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Rail Road train. Purgatory Resort offers both summer and winter seasonal activities for the whole family including dog sledding, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, and mountain coaster, as well as spas, restaurants, and shops in the Base Village.
