The Cottage

This property, even though it is only 2 miles from Durango, is in a beautiful river valley and is filled with tall Ponderosa Pines, enormous oaks and lots of seclusion. Great views of the La Plata Mountains from this property. At 6500 feet in elevation you have the perfect combination of warm winter days and cool summer nights for your vacation in Durango. You are only a 25 minute drive to the Durango Mountain Ski Resort .


The home is beautifully furnished with antiques and art. The main floor has vaulted ceilings and large windows to show mother nature's beauty. This great room also contains a comfortable sofa sleeper. The master bedroom and bath are on the first floor and a second bedroom with private bath is on the second floor. The kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking pleasure or barbeque on the western porch with the gas grill.


There is a large south deck with table and chairs for your relaxation. After a day exploring this wonderful area enjoy the luxurious Caldera Kauai hot tub with lots of comfort and massage which is located under the covered western porch. Only 30 minutes away, enjoy Mesa Verde.


Talk about the perfect location! Your backyard is the acclaimed Red Hermosa Cliffs where numerous Red Tail Hawk nests abound with National Forest beyond that. Your front yard is pasture land overlooking the Animas River where herds of elk can be seen on numerous days. Enjoy the covered private tennis court in the pasture or go for a walk or run on the country road.


A few steps from your front door a large water canal meanders through this heavily wooded property. On the quiet county road in the distance, you will see many bicycle riders, runners, and walkers. This is one of the best places to go for a long run, walk or a bike ride in Durango. Don't forget to visit the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.


The perfect location in Durango! The bakery is three minutes away; great restaurants within 5 minutes; the supermarket is six minutes away; the Narrow Gauge Railroad Station is ten minutes away; and the Durango Mountain Ski Resort is 25 minutes away. You are very close to everything but in a quiet country setting where the stars shine brightly at night! Get out and enjoy the Durango Mountain Resort!


From this location you can go east to Mesa Verde National Park 45 miles away or just enjoy your time in Durango. Take a ride on the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train to Silverton or have an evening meal at the Bar D Chuckwagon [reservations required]. Travel north out of Durango to Durango Ski Resort, or keep going over the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton and Ouray.
