The Cottage sleeps 3: a full size Sealy Posturepedic features 500 count sheets; the black love seat folds out to form a comfortable twin. Plush linens, additional sheets and comforters are provided. The bedroom has pocket doors for added privacy. It is 500 sq ft., and sits at about 6850 ft above sea level. CLEANING: Each guest can expect clean sheets and towels, dusted furniture, a clean and disinfected shower, sink, toilet, kitchen ( counters, sink, stove, frig) disinfected light switches, door knobs and remotes. The stained concrete floor will be swept and mopped (the stained concrete has some discoloration from its installation. (We have discovered that some guests think it might be dirty - we assure you it is clean!) If you find anything is not to your liking, please contact Candace! We strive for 5 star reviews!! A seasonal stream runs next to the Cottage along side wild raspberry bushes, spring bulbs and wildflowers. The Cottage sits on 1/2 acre behind your host's main house. It has its own private drive, carport and 2 parking spaces. The property has 3 apricot trees, a cherry and an apple tree. Our property backs up to the San Juan National Forest and wildlife is abundant. Elk, deer, wild turkeys, black bear, hummingbirds, chipmunks, squirrel, many native birds, Prairie Falcons and Golden Eagles have been seen on and around the Cottage. Bear do come onto the property when food sources become scarce at higher elevations, therefore it is imperative that summer guests do not leave food in their cars nor outside on the property. Bears love BBQ grills, therefore we do not provide one and enjoy our steaks at one of the many fine restaurants Durango has to offer! Bring your camera! If you are lucky enough to see a bear, you can take magnificent photos safely from inside the Cottage as they make their way across the property. It is an unforgettable experience! Black Bear (No Grizzly Bears!) are mostly herbivores, usually more frightened of people, and will pass on through quickly. Being cautious allows us to live in bear country without incident. We are located just off US 550 which is known as the Million Dollar Highway. You can take it north to Silverton and visit a working gold mine or south to Farmington if you crave big city life. Durango has 9 movie theaters, a wonderful Rec Center, live theater and shows, festivals and of course, the train! No visit to Durango is complete without taking a ride on the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad! The drive back to the Cottage is single lane and paved. Parking is available in front of the Cottage or under the carport. Large trucks and duelies have difficulty navigating the small turn around radius, however it is not a problem for regular size pickups, cars and SUVs. More

My wife, I and 2 dogs rented this cottage for 3 nights to visit the Durango area. It was small, but well appointed and met our needs. While about 9 miles north of Durango it was easily accessed and being outside the city was quiet...More

The cabin was very clean and cozy!! Will definitely stay there again. It was close to everything we wanted do and see. I liked the kitchen as we wanted to cook instead of eat out every day.

Date of stay: October 2017
