Holiday Rental House
A beautiful custom built home with massive log vegas and a huge large deck overlooking the Animas River and the 'Old' original Hwy 550 bridge installed in 1939 by Montgomery Wards. This home is extremely private and situated far from the paved county access road thus giving you complete privacy and quietness. The home was built with 12 inch concrete walls and I must say, 'I think you can hear a needle strike the ground.' It is so quiet. And you will experience awesome views from each & every window. The sunsets are incredible while sitting on the riverside deck. That is how I built it! The home is only 5 miles from the NM/CO state line. It is only 30 minutes away from Farmington, NM or 30 minutes from Durango, CO and/or the Durango Airport located near Ignacio, CO. You will not regre...A beautiful custom built home with massive log vegas and a huge large deck overlooking the Animas River and the 'Old' original Hwy 550 bridge installed in 1939 by Montgomery Wards.

We spent Christmas here with extended family. The well-equipped kitchen, the deck, large family room and 4 bed/3 bath combo were just right for us. The house was bigger and better than even the photos show. And, as other travelers have said, the view from...More
