Picture a cozy log cabin situated in the scenic San Juan Mountains and whether its summer or winter you have the perfect Colorado vacation site!
It is a serene place where you are able to enjoy the amenities of Purgatory Ski and Summer Resort and the historic town of Durango without the crowds and noise.
This is a real log cabin nestled in a beautiful heavily wooded area near two high mountain lakes but close to Durango (20 minute drive in the summer) and 12 minutes south of Purgatory Resort. The closest lake is Electra Lake which is a 20 min hike or 5 minute drive. We even have a canoe with car carrier that you can use! The fishing is great and there is a wonderful restaurant right on the lake open in summer.
The cabin has three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with a twin bed and a set of bunk beds) with cozy down comforters and comfortable mattresses) plus two baths. The downstairs queen bedroom has a flat screen T.V. and views of the woods. (Watch for deer or elk!)
There is also a flat screen T.V. in the living room as well as an IPod/IPhone dock for playing your own music. A portable DVD player is available for your favorite movies. We have a small library of books and movies for your use.
Sit in front of the fire or soak in the hot tub under the stars. There are no street lights so the night skies are just amazing! Enjoy the mountain serenity while dining outside on the patio. A gas BBQ is available in summer to cook up all the fish you catch!!
A full kitchen and washer & dryer offer all the comforts of home.
A short 7-12 minute drive takes you to the Purgatory Ski and Summer Resort, home to some of the best Nordic and Alpine skiing in the Rockies. How about a romantic sleigh ride and then cozy dinner, snowmobiling, snowshoeing or simply reading in front of the fire.This winter wonderland is perfect for relaxing or enjoying winter sports.
In the summer, the area comes alive with scenic chair lift rides, alpine slides, music festivals, and world class mountain biking. Look out your front windows of the cabin for a wooded aspen and pine view with a backdrop of mountains. Visitors love that this northern area of Durango is often 8-10 degrees cooler in the summer than downtown Durango! This charming cabin is surrounded by hundreds of miles of scenic hiking and biking trails where wild flowers, waterfalls, and wildlife abound.
Perhaps you would enjoy white water rafting, world class fly fishing or golfing. Or take a ride on the famous Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad to the historic Silverton, a charming mining town in its heyday. Visit Gold Mines... Ghost Towns...
