Classic log cabin w/ private hot tub - rustic mountain comfort

If you're ready for your next secluded mountain retreat, this cozy cabin in the Rockies is waiting for you. Families and groups alike will relish time spent in this rustic yet comfy log cabin nestled in the trees with its own private hot tub, two living areas, and a prime location for both privacy and access to the slopes and the lake.

Located three miles from Purgatory Ski Resort, this homey rental provides you with relatively easy access to town and winter sports, as well as seclusion wrapped in the beauty of a dense forest.

This two-story log home has been updated and remodeled with mountain decor. Views of the Hermosa Cliffs and the surrounding woods greet you from the front, and evergreens and aspens can be seen from every window.

Inside, it's a classic cabin with log walls and a cozy vibe. Lounge in the living area on the comfy furniture while you watch a movie or show on the cable TV, and stay nice and warm by the wood-burning stove. If you want to stay connected, there's free WiFi access at your disposal.

The kitchen is fully equipped with standard appliances and everything you need to cook up satisfying, hearty meals, which you can savor at the large dining table with your family and friends while you catch up on life. In the summer, keep it simple with burgers and hot dogs on the grill, and enjoy your feast on the large wraparound deck in the great outdoors. When night falls, do some stargazing from your private hot tub.

If your group has different opinions about how to spend leisure time in the evenings or if the kids want their own space, make good use of the downstairs living room, which features another TV and a gas stove to keep your guests toasty warm.

This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home sleeps up to eight. You and your guests will rest comfortably on the sleeping options available: two queen-size beds and two twin beds, as well as a double sofabed in the living room. This home also offers a private washer and dryer for your added convenience.

In the summer, take a hike right out your front door, or drive to nearby Electra Lake for stunning views and excellent fishing. Haviland Lake is nearby, as well, and is a great place to hike (clear to the Animas River), fish, and enjoy a picnic. Visit historic Durango for shopping and dining. Kids and adults alike will enjoy a ride on the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Purgatory Resort and the surrounding area offer all the classic winter activities you might expect. Get some downhill skiing or snowboarding in, or venture off the beaten path for some cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. There's also snowbiking, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, and dog sledding. In the summer, Purgatory is the venue of the Music in the Mountains classical music festival.

Come to rest, relax, and explore all this beautiful area has to offer. Get your group together and pick your dates today! 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.

We had a lovely stay and the cabin was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped. Overall a lovely experience. The only negative thing was the hot tub quit working the 2nd night we were there. We specifically picked this cabin for the hot tub. It was very disappointing to have it working only one night of our 3 night stay.
Manager response:
Hi Robin, thank you for your feedback! We are happy to know you enjoyed your stay. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the sudden and unexpected malfunction of the hot tub caused you during your stay. We genuinely appreciate you contacting us right away so our local team could work to remedy the situation. Your comments will be passed to our property manager for review. We hope we have the opportunity to host you again!

Cozy secluded cottage. The perfect spot for our family vacation. Everything we needed was there to cook our Thanksgiving dinner and sitting in the hot tub was a plus on those cold nights!

Far enough away from town to be peaceful but close enough to enjoy. Well equipped and comfortable!
Karol N. Sep 2021
This is a five star stay! The location just 20 minutes north of Durango makes it easy to get into town, or head north across the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton, Ouray and beyond. Immaculate and well appointed, secluded with forest views all around. The spacious back deck and hot tub were perfect for relaxing. With three bedrooms, there's great access for separate sleeping areas. Really appreciated the top notch internet access for remote working! Can't wait to come back!

Location, out of the busy area of Durango

We had the privilege to travel to the Durango area with our 3 grandchildren ages 10, 12 and 15, for a few days and thoroughly loved this cabin in the woods and it's easy location! I loved all the attention to details that the owners had done, and would definitely stay here again! Loved the balcony with rocking chair also! The kids loved the Hot Tub after a long day of hiking, rafting and just being active.
Matthew F. Jul 2021
We loved our stay here and are already dying to return! This cabin is very well taken care of and feels like a home rather than a rental. We stayed as a family of 4 but there was so much room we could have easily brought friends. The hot tub is lovely, and I especially enjoyed birdwatching from the deck (saw several pretty Western Tanagers). We did see a large black bear, so take a lot of care with food and follow the owners’ warnings about handling trash. This place is idyllic and it’s in the perfect location for enjoying the whole area. Easy to get to Durango, and up the highway to Silverton/Ouray. Check out the newly refurbished Durango hot springs—they’re very nice!
Keith F. Jun 2021
Lovely ski house for summer use. The layout of the bedrooms and outdoor space made for a very comfortable mid-June stay. Great proximity to hiking and close of enough to downtown Durango to grabs meals and groceries.
Mindy B. Mar 2021
One of the better equipped rentals! We loved our stay.
Dawn P. Nov 2020
We truly enjoyed our stay at this cozy cabin. Very much as it is advertised. Kitchen has everything you need- but no Kurig coffee maker just drip. The jacuzzi was great especially after a day of skiing at Purgatory Resort -which is very close. Not even a 15 minute drive- so convenient. Wood burning stove and a gas stove provided extra heat and cozy atmosphere. There was 8 of us and plenty of room in the home. Home was clean and organized. Not much snow during this Thanksgiving so we had no issues with driving up to the home - I would suggest if you go in the winter to have a 4 wheel drive for the hills and snow/ice.

Clean, well organized and everything worked!
Kelsey T. Nov 2020
This was in the perfect location, 30 minutes from downtown Durango, 15 minutes from purgatory ski resort, 45 minutes from Silverton. It was secluded enough and the hot tub was a HUGE plus for us. It was just my husband and I but we will be coming back with the family soon!
Pedro C. Oct 2020
It is the second time we rent with Vacasa and it has always been formidable
Kenda W. Aug 2020
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. Felt very secluded and quiet.
Angela T. Aug 2020
Beautiful and clean cabin close to Durango, Silverton & Ouray. Great base camp to go to many locations. Very clean and loved the hot tub! We loved our stay here.
Andrew P. Jul 2020
The location of this cabin was so awesome, in the forest, couldn’t ask for a more beautiful atmosphere. We’re so glad we chose to stay here and not in the city. Very comfortable home. If we return to the Durango area we’ll certainly come back
Lora R. Jun 2020
Perfect location. Loved the clean fresh air! Beautiful scenic drives. Exploring lakes in the area, brought our fishing gear 😊 saw some nice wildlife, and had a blast at purgatory riding the alpine slide! Very cozy and warm. Full kitchen, washer and drier, windows that easily open. Great patio to gather. Have fun !!
Jean S. Jun 2020
We had a wonderful time! This is the cutest log cabin and we had everything we needed. We even met the owner who came by to install the screen doors. Hot tub was wonderful after a day of rock climbing! This location is in the prettiest spot and tucked away where we could really socially distance, but at the same time-close enough to town for everything we needed. Owner and Vacasa were super responsive when we had a sight problem with the hot tub. Would definitely recommend this precious home! Wish our stay could have been longer-but we will definitely be back!
Jennifer F. Jun 2020
Everything we needed was provided. Plenty of space for the five of us.
Cloyce F. Sep 2019
We based from here. the cabin was very nice, From here u can go to silverton in 30 min or Quray in 1 hr Durango in 20 min lots of Jeep trails nearby which we did as well out of purgatory resort. Large cabin will sleep 8 comfortably. 3 levels w/stairs provides TVs and an get away area if u have kids or adults.
Amanda B. Sep 2019
There are so many places to see within an hour of this house. The house was very cute and cozy. Hot tub was a huge plus. Loved it!
Mark M. Aug 2019
Cabin was big but cozy, great location 😀
Chari H. Jul 2019

Great place nice and quiet
Lisa L. Jun 2019
This cabin was wonderful! Great views and very cozy. We enjoyed the hot tub and watching elk from the back patio. I definitely would recommend this cabin! Can't wait to go back!
Parry T. Mar 2019
The cabin was as advertised. Me and my wife and 4 girls all had a wonderful time there! It was clean and well maintained with a decent kitchen to be able to prepare meals.
Oh and the snow 40 inches in two days! Was very impressed that within a half day the snow cleaning crews removed it from road so we could go back out and enjoy the mountains. Also it’s only about 10 minutes from Purgatory. I would definitely come again it was a great place!
Charles S. Feb 2019
This cabin is very well constructed with an excellent heating system. The kitchen has upgraded appliances with plenty of pots, pans, plates and utensils. The cabin can accommodate 5 sleeping in separate beds and is only a few minutes from Purgatory Ski Resort. It is located in the tall pines with plenty of room between homes.
James A. Jan 2019
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. Everything was as stated and we had no issues with anything. After three days of snowboarding/skiing, it was nice to come home and relax in a clean comfortable cabin! The hot tub was a added bonus, unfortunately wasn't used enough. The cabin had everything we needed and then some. Will definitely keep this cabin in mind for winters to come as we plan to do this trip annually.
Megan H. Nov 2018
We very much enjoyed ourselves. Everything was great! We will be back!!
Amanda N. Nov 2018
Absolutely loved this cabin!! This cabin is nothing short of amazing. It's secluded enough to where you have some privacy but not too far from town. The kitchen was equipped with utensils and cookware so we were able to prepare meals, which was nice not having to eat out every meal for several days. The hot tub was an added bonus which we enjoyed soaking in after a long day of outdoor activities. The host was incredibly hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return!
Connie L. Oct 2018
I enjoyed the warm homey feeling in the cabin The beautiful view from the deck to the mountains and blue sky
Dana W. Sep 2018
When we drove up my kids were fascinated with how beautiful the cabin was. Everything was nice and clean! The best way I can describe it is.. It feels like home! It was very hard to leave this cabin. I'm happy that I have tons of pictures and wonderful memories with my family at this cabin. The next time we go to Durango, we will be staying at this cabin. Thank you so much for the beautiful memories with my family.
Lee A. Aug 2018
Roomy, cozy, totally equipped for a week away! Wonderful owners!!
Donald H. Jul 2018
The cabin was masterfully constructed, artfully designed, and carefully maintained and stocked. We loved it and will recommend it to friends and stay again if we come to that area.
Kenneth K. Jun 2018
Very relaxing place with plenty of room for the family!
Michele W. Feb 2018
Picture perfect log cabin in the woods, near a snow covered lake, just 3 miles from the ski resort. Absolutely loved the cabin. It snowed over 6 inches during our stay; thankful the directions informed us that 4x4 was needed to get to the property during the winter!
Monique D. Jan 2018
My family and I have been staying in different cabins for the past 3 years around the Durango and Purgatory Ski area. This cabin is by far one of our favorites. We had such an amazing time. We will be back!
Clint B. Dec 2017
Awesome cabin, first time staying here! Although there wasn’t much snow at Purg in December we were extremely happy with our stay and highly recommend staying here if you like the rustic out of town cabin feel
Kristen M A. Oct 2017
We will have this on our list of preferred places to stay!
Kent P. Oct 2017
My two best friends and I get away for a week every year for a male bonding experience. Durango was the destination this year and this cabin suited us well. It's a 20 minute drive from town and a bit tricky to find the first time, but the directions were good. We each had a bedroom; two with full bath and the third, top floor, with a half bath. The cabin was well equipped and comfortable. Recommended.
Loretta U. Oct 2017
The cabin was decorated beautifully, was warm and comfortable. Only two complaints; the second floor sofas were very soft in the center, perhaps the foam needs to be replaced. The location of the trash bin was not shown on the paperwork, only the combination lock numbers was shown

1st class, just as pictured
Marcus M. Sep 2017
great place to stay.
Vicki S. Sep 2017
The house itself was beautiful! The hot tub was a nice way to relax in the evening. We thought the house was closer to Hesperus when we booked it, which would have been more convenient for us based on the activities we had planned - it was a bit further out than we expected. This would be a great house for winter guests who plan to ski or visit the hot springs.
David S. Sep 2017
The cabin was great. Well maintained and stocked with hardware needed.
My wife and I enjoyed it immensely.

Some of the financial details and oh-by-the-way fees were quite disturbing. I suspect I failed to read enough fine print, but deception should not be the goal. Simplicity and enjoyment for the renter should be what's being sold and provided.
Mark H. Aug 2017
We wanted a nice cabin in the mountains and that is exactly what we got. Great place, very clean, private, perfect location. We loved it and will be back.
Mary C. Aug 2017
My husband and I stayed at Bear Hollow from July 31 through August 2, 2017, with our kids, aged 18 and 22. There was plenty of room for us to spread out through the house. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery surrounding the cabin and had a great time playing rousing games of Clue in the evenings. The location was far enough outside of town to be private, but close enough for activities in Durango. Although we didn't make it this trip, it would be convenient for a day trip to Ouray. The house was well-appointed with dishes, comfortable beds, dishwasher and washer/dryer. We didn't get a chance to use the hot tub, but it was great to have it as an option. Instructions throughout the home were easy to follow to make sure that the house was well taken care of during our stay. We recommend the home if you are looking for a beautiful, private getaway in the Durango area.

We are from Eastern Colorado and decided to take a quick trip to Durango for a short family vacation. Given my business travel, I stay in a hotel a lot and we wanted something besides another hotel room. We were thrilled with Bear Hollow! It was cozy and comfortable, yet with three levels, it provided enough room for everyone to have their own space. The kitchen provided all we needed to have some nice home-cooked breakfasts and dinners and the hot tub provided an opportunity for us to simply relax as a family and enjoy the cool evenings. Thank you for making our trip to Durango such a special and memorable experience. We look forward to coming back to Bear Hollow!
Linda M. May 2017
Upon arrival, the cabin was spotless and even had a welcome bag full of useful (and fun) goodies. The firewood already chopped was such a nice benefit. The cabin had everything we needed - even a gas grill which we used a couple times. We loved it and will return soon!
Jennifer H. Feb 2017
We enjoyed our stay very much. Just the right size for what we needed.
Larry E. Nov 2016
Great place to stay. Hope to return about the same time next year.
