It can only be described as magical. The scenery is Mother Nature at her finest. Our cabin named the "Birdsnest" was cosy, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We are from Australia and don't get to experience snow in such a capacity, which made our stay all the more special. After a stressful day of driving in the snow, we were greeted with freshly baked snickerdoodle cookies from Mike, and Maria's hospitality was second to none, especially when she had to help us push the car because we had gotten stuck in the snow, twice!
This gorgeous piece of land has so much to offer, and sitting in the hot tub listening to the sound of the running river and birds, surrounded by snow filled mountains was certainly a highlight, but I must say the stars of the show were Pea Kiity, Peanut (cats) and Cooper the dog.
O-Bar-O should be a must do on anyones holiday list, it really felt like a home away from home for us, and we truly hope to return some day.
Thank you Maria and Mike for sharing this beautiful part of the world with us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rustic cabins under the clear Colorado sky. Deer and elk roaming through nearby alpine meadows. Tall pine trees stretching to the horizon. Cool mountain streams bubbling with trout. The O-BAR-O Cabins, situated on the Florida River, has all of this and more. Located just outside Durango, we're a stone's throw from the national forest, two large lakes, and horse trail rides. Plus we have the best trout fishing you'll find in these parts. ... more less
