Charming home w/ fireplace & private washer/dryer, close to river & bike path!

Downtown Durango is at your fingertips when you book this lovely two-bedroom vacation rental. Just one block from the Animas River, this home-away-from-home boasts all of the standard comforts, including a private washer/dryer, free wireless internet, and a wood-burning fireplace.

The Durango Public Library is a few minutes' walk away, next to a bike path that hugs the banks of the Animas River. Downtown Durango is a little more than a mile away via the bike path, or half a mile by car. Purgatory Resort is 26 miles away, and Mesa Verde National Park is 36 miles west.

Situated on one of Durango's quiet residential streets, this cozy home is the perfect no-frills retreat for a small family or two couples who want easy access to the city's attractions. Bright and airy with modern decor, this home has everything you need for a successful vacation.

The home features a spacious living room with a large sectional sofa, which faces the wood-burning fireplace and the wall-mounted flatscreen TV. On cold evenings, what could be better than luxuriating in the warmth of a fire?

If you feel like cooking, the fully equipped galley-style kitchen is ready for everything from a leisurely brunch to a quick pre-adventure snack. There's even a dishwasher for easy cleanup. A dining room table seats five.

Up to four guests are welcome to stay at this two-bedroom, one-bathroom home. Each bedroom features a queen-size bed. One of the bedrooms overlooks the fenced backyard.

Whatever you're interested in, Durango has something to offer you. Hop on your bike and head downtown, enjoying scenic views of the Animas River as you coast along the path. Stroll along the city streets, perusing museums, art galleries, and shops, before stopping for a bite to eat or a beer from one of the local breweries.

During the winter, head north to Purgatory Resort for skiing, snowboarding, dog sledding, sleigh rides, and snowshoe tours. In summer, go for a hike in Mesa Verde National Park and explore the Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings, then cool off with a rafting trip down the Animas River.

However you choose to spend your time in Southwest Colorado, you're guaranteed to have an unforgettable trip. Don't miss out on this convenient Durango vacation rental! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

This place was very cozy!

The house was sparkling clean when we arrived with nice cool temps for us to come in after a hot day of traveling. Simple home, but very clean and comfortable. Saw a deer run by while drinking coffee outside in the morning. Will definitely retun!

The house was just the right size for us, 2 bedrooms, a nice kitchen and a comfortable living room. We hung out on the front porch in the evening, it is a nice quiet street . Easy access to the river trail into town. Parking in the street in front was always available. Great location for activities in and around Durango.

Very clean updated home in the heart of Durango. The home was supplied with all the basic amenities that you would need.
We will stay there again in the future.

Loved the nice size of the kitchen, dining room was roomy, lots of lounging space in living room. Bedrooms ok sized, bathroom didn't have any counter space so I used the top of the dresser for my toiletries etc. No AC but we ran the blower which helped. Perfect location 1/2 mile north of downtown and a block from library and Animas River. Saw 4-5 deer in the neighborhood one morning. Wish the treehouse wasn't pictured on VRBO as there is no ladder and Vacasa did not have one (safety reasons). My little girls were disappointed.

Katherine S. Jan 2018
This is a darling small home close to everything downtown but on a quiet street. It was very clean, comfortable beds, and a kitchen well stocked for cooking in. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
Diego K. Jan 2018
The house is located on a quiet street with easy access to main. Beds were comfortable, heating/cooling worked great, and the front porch was nice to relax on. The kitchen had everything we needed and the washer/dryer were nice to have. Would stay again and recommend to friends.
Kathryn F. Nov 2017
The house is centrally located. It provided us with a great base camp! Downtown was maybe a five minute drive and parking was easily found once we got there. The house is comfortable. The couch is big and spacious. We only used one of the beds but got great sleep on it. It was great to have a kitchen fully stocked with pans, dishes and some cooking supplies. We also took advantage of the washer and dryer. All appliances were in great working order. We would definitely stay at this property again and recommend to any one who asked about it.
Adrianne F. Oct 2017
Nice place, easy walk to river and into town. Everything needed was provided -- very comfortable for a family of four.
THOMAS S. Oct 2017
Nice quaint little house that is convenient to the surrounding area. Would have been very nice with the minor improvements suggested above.
Tamera G. Oct 2017
Wonderful location! And we very much enjoyed our stay at the library house.
Alexandria M. Oct 2017
We always love coming to Durango. This is the first time we decided to rent out a house instead of hotel - was a great choice! We truly appreciated the late check-out option!

Tiffany T. Sep 2017
The house is in a great location. We jumped on the bike path right from the house rode all over town. Super clean and nice home to stay during our visit to Durango. Would stay here again.
Diego E. Jul 2017
We decided to take a last minute trip to Durango for the weekend and this was one of the only options left. Its a very nice little house in a quiet neighborhood. The only complaint we have is that it doesn't have AC. It gets very hot at night!
Luanne T. Apr 2017
Very nice house, everything you'd need. Quiet area - close to River walk and within walking distance (1 mile) of down town shops & restaurants.
