Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a great stay in this house in Durango. We saw many different birds here! All noted in our western bird book. The trip to Silverton by train was beautiful. What a countryside! We would have liked to stay longer. No suprise that so many people wanted the same! It's the best of both sides: Durango- very lively and the house so close but in beautiful nature. We're glad we could make your son happy with the Ajax-football shirt. Amazing that he is a fan of Dutch (Amsterdam) football team! Jan and Jneke- Holland (near Rotterdam)

Lovely pastoral setting not far from town. We would love to return. Our Thanksgiving weekend was the best!

Nice setting, not too far from town

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful experience. Lana was great with communication and everything went smoothly on arrival and with departure. Well-stocked kitchen for making meals, nice woodsy area and quaint setting. For some reason, I thought it would be a bit further away from the road (it is about 200 yds maybe?). There wasn't a ton of traffic, but I was hoping it would be a bit more secluded. That said, it was nice at times to just be a few miles from town and still feel "in the country". Thanks, Lana!

Beautiful home for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Farmhouse for our weekend getaway to Durango to see our son, and do some hiking with our puppy! Great location - just outside of town, but close enough to get to downtown, trails, Lemon Reservoir and restaurants! Really enjoyed sitting on the outside patio table with coffee as the sun came up over the mountains.

Just As Described

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax and enjoy the Animus River Valley. Rustic home with beautiful furnishings and modern conveniences. Enjoy the privacy of the patio and hot tub as you plan the next days outings which may include hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, or simply sightseeing in this beautiful area. Lana was the perfect host-promptly responding to any questions or needs. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Always A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 3 times and have always loved it! Lana and Rod (owners) are first class. The property is very close to town (about 5 minutes) but yet feels like your own private oasis. The views are tremendous, the old time charm takes you back in time, and the hot tub is just a bonus. Shh...don't tell anyone or this place will always be booked.
