About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This newly constructed 650 square foot above garage loft replaced the old carriage house that was built in 1888. It sits off street behind our 2 story brick victorian residence. We welcome you to this historic neighborhood. It is an amazing location within walking distance of downtown, restaurants, bike path, trails, library, Powerhouse childrens museum, and other amenities. Enjoy your vacation in the beauty of this modern, fully furnished home. We have a fold out crib and stroller available and can provide toys for chidren of all ages upon request.

If you choose to walk to downtown the swinging bridge over the beautiful Animas River is only three blocks away offering easy access to all the restaurants and shopping that Durango has to offer.

A relaxing place to stay with a private deck overlooking a forested hill and a garden water feature. This home has vaulted ceilings and a modern kitchen with stainless appliances, fully stocked and all the extra things you might need to cook in house.

The spacious bedroom has a new king size bed with fine linens and down comforter. The bathroom is luxurious with a Carrera marble counter top, 18 inch tile floor and Subway tiled shower. It is accessorized with quality towels, soaps, and a hair dryer.

The living room is equipped with a double sized futon couch, flat screen tv, dvd player, 2 leather swivel chairs, and a library complete with games. We also provide wifi access.

The dining area seats up to six and can be used for dinners on those nights you want to stay in.

About Joe and Yona Delling

Both of us attended here at Ft Lewis College and while we have both lived other places neither of us had ever found a place quite like Durango. We have both now Lived in town for more than 20 years. Yona is a nurse at the local hospital and Joe is a fly fishing guide and carpenter. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to live and raise a family in such a unique location.

Joe and Yona Delling purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Joe and Yona Delling chose Durango

Ours is one of the few Victorian homes in the neighborhood built in the late 1800s. It required a lot of fixing up but the location and historical nature of the house was just too much for us to pass up. We finished construction on the Carriage house in early 2014 in hopes people would spend their vacations here and also as place for friends and family to stay when they visit.

What makes this bungalow unique

One benefit of the properties location is that it butts to a forested hillside, this means we have no alley or neighbors behind us. The deck of the Carriage house faces this hill and its common to see deer and other wildlife pass through. I think it offers a privacy and feel that's hard to find in a location this close to Main Avenue.

Awesome stay in Durango

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Carriage House Loft. Its in a great location, easy biking distance to most places. Really cool neighborhood and Joe and his family are awesome hosts. The loft is really clean and a great layout. We felt like locals for 2 days and wished we could have stayed much longer.

We love the Carriage House! Charming, historic community and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Yona were prompt and pleasant. Although they weren’t home during our stay, they were courteous and accommodating prior to our stay...Joe even called me to inform me about a nearby fire and expressed his understanding if we wished to cancel. Well, we didn’t cancel and the rain came and washed ours worries away. We had a wonderful experience. The Carriage House is above the garage in the backyard, which is beautifully landscaped and frequented by a few friendly and curious pups (as dog lovers, this was an added bonus). The unit is cozy and worked well for our family of 3. We would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous new contemporary with cooks kitchen

  • 5 of 5

Free-standing loft-like well appointed apartment in rustic contemporary style. Very clean, comfortable bedding, spices galore & nice area for TV viewing. We especially enjoyed the patio/deck area @ the entry of the apartment with the over hanging flowering tree. Joe, the owner, was on-site & very responsive. The added bonus was the owners have 2 dogs, one of them being a young golden retriever. All dogs are friendly & there is a canister of treats for them in the apartment. Proximity to downtown - shopping & dining - is ideal.
