“Incredible stay in tranquil location”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

When looking for lodging options in Durango, we stumbled across this property on FlipKey. Simply put, this place is amazing! The owner, Francie, was helpful from start to finish of our stay and was more than accommodating and insightful about the area in general. This ranch is exactly what you would expect in terms of experiencing the openness of the West in a quiet, relaxing setting - mountains in the distance, horses outside your window, and great sunrises and sunsets. The loft itself is as advertised and an absolutely incredible value, and that would be the case if it weren't situated on the ranch, which only adds to it. It's about 20 minutes from Durango and we made the easy drive in and out of town at least once each day during our stay, and even made a day trip to Silverton for a half day hike and visited Mesa Verde National Park about 30 min. away. Our only regret was not having enough time to remain on the property and truly take it in - we just had many other things planned in the area and a short time to accomplish them. Nice stay that will be very memorable for us.

“Can't wait to come back!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had high expectations when we booked this place due to all the other wonderful reviews and we were not disappointed! Add my voice to the choir, this place is incredible. Spectacular views everywhere you look, the grounds are immaculately maintained--if you're looking for something other than a stuffy hotel room, look no further. We had so much fun walking the property, watching the sunset and staying up late to see the stars showing off! The loft is very comfortable--plenty of space and comfy beds. It's very bright and airy with tons of windows allowing you to take full advantage of the stunning scenery. The ranch is about a 20 minute drive from downtown Durango, so it was a perfect escape to the country but still close enough to head into town for a nice dinner. The best part is the horses! My four year old immediately fell in love when we drove up and saw the gorgeous horses grazing in the pastures. She loved running downstairs first thing in the morning to check on "her" horses. Francie and John were so kind and patient to let her tag along and pepper them with questions while they worked with the horses and Lauren gave her a wonderful lesson in grooming and riding. Definitely book a lesson during your stay! It was such a treat to watch the other riders do their jumping in the ring. This was a fantastic place for kids but would also be a relaxing, romantic getaway without children. We made some truly special family memories staying at this place and can't wait to come back!

Thank you ..thank you..thank you for writing such a wonderful review. It was my pleasure to have you here and share the beauty and horses. Your daughter is a precious treasure and it was so much fun to see the excitement in her eyes when she viewed the horses. That is what this ranch is all about. Looking forward to seeing you again. Best, Francie

“Special place, Spectacular views, Nice and quiet!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My husband and I spent two nights in this spacious loft along with a guest visiting us from Holland. We found the loft to have stunning views of the countryside and surrounding ranch.

It was equipped with most everything we needed....I understand from Francie that internet service is coming soon, so that will be a big plus for those of you coming later. The kitchen is very well equipped with good quality pots/pans, utensils, etc. We were glad we knew that the "oven" was a very large toaster oven so that the meals we prepared at home and took with us would fit. So it was perfect for us!

The loft was excellent value and very comfortable, an easy drive from Durango and also easy to find if you follow Francie's excellent directions.

Highly recommend this property!

Liked best: Secluded spot, great views, spacious rooms and comfortable furniture, friendly hostess.
Liked least: The sulphur odor of the water in the shower was a bit powerful. Only one mirror, and that was in the bathroom and difficult to see what you wanted to see because of all the panes.

Words cannot express what a fabulously relaxing time we had at the loft. The loft is beautiful! Francie Olson, the property owner, is gracious. The views are magnificent! We really enjoyed watching the equine training. Francie and her staff made it look so easy, but you could see how diligently they work! We loved petting the dogs and cats who stopped by! If you are in the Durango area, you will not find a better place to stay! We will definitely go back and spend more time! One word of caution, GPS does not work! Don't make our mistake and use it! You will meet a very irate couple who will yell at you and then escort you off of their property! Just ask Francie and she will give you directions.

We really enjoyed the ability to get out of Durango at night, away from the tourist hubbub. This fit the bill! Our children are still calling it our "barn home" and they did not want to leave. It was nice to have the ability to cook breakfast and dinner. This reduced our expenses so that we could focus on the attractions we did want to purchase. This was such a relaxing locale and convenient to both Durango and Mesa Verde. The owners really left us on our own and we enjoyed the solitude after being on the go all day. Thanks for sharing your ranch with us!
