“5-Star in the woods”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

The cabin was full equipped was everything we needed and wanted. We also traveled with our two Jack Russell Terriors and they too have everything could want waiting for them. The property was wonderful with the running river just steps from the door. We were only minutes from Durango. If you are looking for a relaxing environment it is waiting for you at O-Bar-O Cabins.

Room Tip: No need to bring any cooking items, they are all in the kitchen

As you pull into the parking lot of O-Bar-O you pass int a new world of peacefulness. The Florida River is the prominent feature which provides hypnotic viewing and listening. If you are a fly fisherman think about a very short walk from your cabin to a great trout stream. Mike is there to provide tips and flies as needed. We have stayed in the Columbine unit several times over the last ten or so years. We love that place. The new improvements by Maria and Mike make it even more special. After a hard day of hiking or relaxing don't forget the hot tub down by the river.

We stayed at the O-Bar-O Cabins in October for a 50th birthday celebration. The cabins were decorated beautifully and the owners, Maria and Mike, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I would highly reccomend this place for a nice getaway or vacation!

We had 4 wonderful nights at O-Bar-O Cabins. To begin with, I have a commercial cleaning company so I always look for areas that people miss when it comes to cleaning. Maria and Mike did NOT miss any areas. Our accomadations were spotless! I really loved the 1500 thread count sheets, all the O-Bar-O logo hygiene products, robes ect. Maria& Mike pay close attention to the details in dog items, decor and hospitality. We are considering moving to Durango and I plan on making another reservation for our return trip. Oh, one more thing, they even gave us a travel bag with snacks and water for our return trip. It doesn't get any better than that.
Thank you Maria and Mike

Room Tip: We stayed in Birds Nest a small cabin but it really met our needs!

My Husband and I celebrated our Anniversary by renting a cabin at O-Bar-O in Durango. Having never been to Durango before, we did some research and this small B&B type cabin property seemed to be right up our alley. We worked with the owner to get the deposit taken care of and to coordinate our late arrival. They were extremely helpful and accomodating to all our requests, including my Husband arranging to get a flower arrangement for me (which was beautiful).

We stayed in the Birdsnest cabin with our small Boston Terrier, who was spoiled with a comfy bed, toy and towels (he loved it). Though the cabin is tiny, it had everything we needed and the layout was extremly thoughtful with plenty of storage space. I particularly liked the fireplace, which heated the room (eventhough it was loud coming on and off). The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals (which we did every night). There was plenty of places to sit outside on benches, chairs, or even the hammock, which was our favorite spot. They have a hot tub, which was so nice at night. It provided an awesome place to look up at the stars and just relax.

All in all, this was a relaxing, romantic getaway that I am sure we will look back on fondly. In addition, I am positive we will be coming back to Durango and we will for sure stay at O-Bar-O again!

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the O-Bar-O in the Hummingbird Cabin. There were 2 couples and the setting was perfect. All the amenities of a first class establishment. My personal favorite was sitting around the firepit outside our cabin in the evenings. It was a relaxing time and we will come back.
