Experience the outdoorsman's paradise of southern Colorado at 'The Cowan Cabin,' a three-bedroom, two-bathroom vacation rental in Bayfield! This newly remodeled home is ideal for families vacationing together or hunters/anglers looking for accommodations in a stunning mountain setting. Located just minutes from Vallecito Lake and 21 miles from Durango, this spacious home for eight guests is perfect for those looking for serenity amongst nature.
Main Bedroom: King bed | Second bedroom: Queen bed | Third bedroom: Bunk room
At the end of the day, relax in the spacious living room with a movie, board games, or simply enjoy the company of family and friends. You'll be just steps from the fully equipped kitchen with all the amenities you’d need including an eat-in kitchen with seating for up to eight. After dinner, head out to one of the two furnished decks and enjoy your natural surroundings. Nestled under towering ponderosa pines, these decks - complete with a gas grill and eight-person table - are the perfect place to gather with your loved ones. The home also comes with a washer and dryer and complimentary laundry essentials for your convenience.
The main bedroom boasts a flatscreen TV, a plush king bed, and a desk workspace for all your remote office or schooling needs. The bunk room is sure to be a hit with your whole crew! The rustic wooden bunk beds and decor gives the feel of bringing the outdoors inside.
Traveling with your dog? No problem! They are welcome too. There is even a small fenced-in yard just off the laundry room for convenient access.
When you're looking to beat the heat, head down the road to Vallecito Lake and make a splash. Whether you choose to rent a boat from Vallecito Marina, swim, or camp, you'll be surrounded by the gorgeous San Juan National Forest during your time at the lake.
If you prefer rivers to lakes, you're also in luck! With private access to the Los Pinos River, you'll be a quick drive from gold medal fly fishing. No matter how experienced a fisherman you are, you're sure to catch a rainbow, brookie, brown, or cutthroat in the Los Pinos.
Grab your hiking shoes and explore some of the area's beautiful wilderness. Sitting within minutes of the cabin the Vallecito Creek Trail allows hikers to enjoy the sounds of the creek as they climb 1,512 feet in elevation.
For a unique Colorado experience, be sure to explore the quaint town of Durango located down the road. Boasting opportunities to ski, shop, hike, and eat delicious Southwestern fare, Durango is a town that is sure to steal your heart.
Thanks to this cabin's Bayfield location, you'll also be a quick drive from all the Southwest Colorado has to offer!
