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)

Durango Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house for our 2016 vacation! It made a perfect base camp for all the things my husband and I wanted to do this year while in southwest Colorado - Hiking Mesa Verde NP, Durango & Silverton train excursion, Traveling up to Ouray and Telluride for sightseeing and hiking, 4 Corners N.M, Hovenweep N.M., Canyons of the Ancients N.M., Aztec Ruins N.M., Animas River Trail and even sometime to walk the shops of Durango and enjoy a few local restaurants. The location was perfect and the house offered everything we needed to enjoy our stay when we came back from our daily adventures. Lana, thanks so much for having such a nice place for one to be able to relax at the end of an adventurous day. We had an awesome 1 1/2 weeks in your little piece of heaven!!! We would definitely recommend to others and would stay again at this charming farm house or even one of your properties when back in the area.

Charming, Quaint Farmhouse on Spacious Lot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this little farmhouse. Just the right size for our family of 4, it's a cozy, warm home that is on a spacious, fenced lot with lots of room for our kids to run around and play outside. It's a private location, but still close and easily accessible to town. We were there for 6 nights and had no issues or problems. Lana was easy to work with and made our stay hassle free and comfortable.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending Thanksgiving at the farm house. It was a vacation with all the comforts if home. The property was great for our two kids to explore. We woke up to snow one day and two deer in the yard- wonderful being that we are from suburban Texas! The house is comfy and charming! It was our second stay with Romantic Vacations and we will be back.

Early October Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 3-days at the Farmhouse in Durango. The house was very well-equipped - plenty of the basics, i.e., coffee/tea, toilet paper which often rental houses do not have. Also, there were plenty of towels for bathing, hot tub and even for pets - all clearly marked. The front room had lovely views of the area; the yard was very large for roaming with a pet or children if you bring any for your stay. The house was kept in the style of a farmhouse but with all the modern conveniences - even a large bathroom which the farmhouses of my youth never had. With the exception of a few cobwebs up high, the house was very clean. The location was lovely - out of town a bit and peaceful, but with a very short drive into Durango and its activities. The guest books suggestions were helpful. The bike rental place was terrific! We would certainly return to this house on a future stay in Durango.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our five night stay in your home. Everything that you would need was there from board games to a tortilla skillet. The quiet solitude and scenery was great, yet it is still just minutes from town. Also a great location for the many attractions and activities in the Durango area. Dreaming and planning on returning soon. Thank you Lana.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation rental. Love both the outdoor & indoor space this property has to offer. This was the absolute perfect spot for our 2 border collies used to spending their days on acreage. We enjoyed the well-appointed & maintained home. The views are beautiful. The tennis court, hot tub & other activities are a real plus! Shout out to Romantic Vacations for a great rental experience.
