“Awesome relaxing wonderful rental!”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Wonderful vacation home - well stocked with everything we needed, awesome friendly hosts, amazing views, relaxing and gorgeous views - our family loved our stay here! We loved relaxing by the fire pit and playing horseshoes while enjoying relaxing dinners in yet we were close by all the other activities and things we wanted to enjoy. We highly recommend and sure hope to come back again!

“mountain Memories forever”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

OUr party of 4 (two couples in our late 60's) arrived late in the afternoon after traveling from Denver. The rental agency was great in completing the rental agreement and the owners, Bill and Bonnie, who are on site are two of the most gracious host. Their guest house over their large garage was their personal residence before moving into their post and beam house located a short distance from this location; therefore, it has a very homey feeling impeccably decorated. The rental agency's depiction is totally accurate. Bill greeted us at the top of the mountain after we passed through the gated entry and took in the scenery as we climbed the 1200 elevation to Bill's Post and beam mansion. He escorted us to the guest house, oriented us to its amenities, directed us to the ample opportunities for hiking, cookouts, and horse shoes. He introduced us to his 2 horses Chance and Gamble. Chance loves to be rubbed and all but turns himself inside out to get more. The property is only 17 minutes from the Durango depot and old town Durango. You literally have total privacy, separation from the hustle and bustle of resorts and condos, and have complete serenity with nature. This is a place where memories are made. I recommended this guest house to my daughter and family in Denver, and my son and his family in Houston. It is ideal for both the young and old; however, like the literature says, there are 20 stairs to ascend to reach the guest house over the garage. Thank you Bill and Bonnie for such a relaxing stay. It was hard to leave.

“Seclusion with Spectacular Views”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We just returned from Durango and the best road trip/ vacation ever!!! When we arrived we were greeted by Bonnie who had made us a pan of delicious homemade brownies and gave us a tour of the quest house and surrounding property. We loved the accommodations which were secluded but only a 10 minute drive to town. We used the grill for nights we wanted to stay in, played horseshoes in the yard, built a campfire, and at the end of each day we relaxed on the most comfortable mattresses any of us have ever slept on. Since we drove to Durango the location of the property served as a great home base for each of our daily adventures. We visited the Grand Canyon (5 hours away), Mesa Verde(1hour) and rode the Durango/Silverton Train (10 minutes to the station). Bill and Bonnie were GREAT hosts and seemed like family. #BEST TRIP EVER! We Will be Back!!!!!!!!

“Seclusion With Amazing Views”
Reviewed January 22, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We just returned from our week-long stay in Durango. Our flight arrived 4 hours later than expected, but Bill, the owner, met us at the bottom of the mile-long drive late at night to escort us to the guesthouse. We arrived at the guesthouse to find that Bonnie had started a fire in the woodburning stove and brought us homemade brownies. Since they knew we didn't have time to stop for groceries, she also brought coffee and fresh milk that we could enjoy first thing in the morning. When we woke up the next morning we were stunned by the amazing views all around us. Although the guesthouse was only a ten minute drive to town, we had a feeling of seclusion which makes for a romantic escape. We traveled into town each day and were greeted by Chance and Rambler, the resident horses, upon our return in the evenings. We fed them treats of alfalfa cubes that were left in a basket nearby so we became fast friends. The guesthouse was cozy and comfy. We snuggled under blankets on the couch to read and enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings with a fire in the stove. We took advantage of the outdoor grill several times to enjoy meals in. Our visit allowed us to recharge our batteries. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would stay there again.

“Great stay, wonderful views!”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

One of our most memorable vacations ever! From the first moment you arrive, to the beautiful mountain top, the views, and to meeting Bill and Bonnie, the owners, which are GREAT people. By the time you leave from your stay you feel that you miss them just as much as the cabin. The cabin is cozy and comfortable with all the necessary amenities readily available to you. Bill is just a phone call away just waiting to assist you in any way possible to make your stay the best ever possible. And last, the views and horses around the cabin create a sense of tranquility unimaginable. You feel like you are far away from town but in reality just 10 minutes from downtown Durango.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Mt Memories Guesthouse--it really is a special location where the surrounds and views are those of a property much further outside of downtown Durango--the best of both worlds! The owners are fabulous people who want for everyone to thoroughly enjoy their stay--as do we. It certainly sounds like you enjoyed a very memorable holiday.

“Fantastic views and beautiful landscape provide a private and peaceful mountain experience.”
Reviewed January 19, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This place is absolutely amazing! We stayed here for our Christmas vacation and couldn't be happier with our choice. The location is both private and very close to town, only about 10-15 minutes from being downtown. The view and land surrounding the home is amazing, great for hiking and exploring for the kids and parents as well. Much of the home and surrounding grounds were decorated with Christmas lights and decorations that really helped with the holiday feel. Not to mention the fresh snow we received on Christmas morning. We even took the kids out to the National forest and cut down our own Christmas tree (with $8 permit purchased at local store) that fit nicely in the living area of the house. The owners did everything they could to make our experience as enjoyable as possible. They also have two very beautiful horses on the property that our kids loved seeing everyday. We took full advantage of the private location and enjoyed a cozy and quite Christmas with our kids. We took daily trips into town to go ice skating, sledding, and shopping. Overall this was an absolutely amazing place to stay, and would definitely stay here again in the future.

“I rent places all the time and this has to be one of the best!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Such a special property! The views are spectacular and the accommodations are wonderful. Bill and Bonnie were so nice and made our stay extra special. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed our stay at Mountain Memories. Bonnie has everything anyone could possibly need to cook a nice meal and has forgot absolutely nothing in the way of bathroom things. Durango is very close by so there is no problem in partaking in everything that the beautiful city has to offer, fine dining, the Silverton to Durango train. The Million Dollar Highway, Mesa Verde National Park, etc. What I especially like was that you felt like you were away from everything high up in the mountains but in reality just 10 minutes into town!! Just WONDERFUL!!
