The Cider House with apple tree full in the fall

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Durango, Colorado
The Cider House is a new home with a sunny open floor plan, high speed Wi-Fi Internet, cable TV, board games, outdoor games, Ping Pong, and a library of 200+ movies. The shelves are stocked with area maps, guide books on hiking, biking, and area activities and historical books on the train and Durango history. We have several adult and kid mountain bikes and a canoe available for guest use. It is the perfect location for outdoor fun and just short drive to Durango or Purgatory.

Hermosa is just North of the City of Durango in the Animas river valley. Hot springs, restaurants, grocery, etc. are all nearby. The area has a rural neighborhood feel with houses scattered about and lots of open space, forest and farmland. We live in a house on the North side of the 6.5 acre property and are available anytime if you need anything.

Thank you for the review. Normally, as the temperatures drop into the 50's at night, we open the windows and the cool evening breeze keeps the house quite comfortable. Unfortunately because of the drifting smoke windows had to be kept closed at night. This fire...More

About the neighborhood
8 Miles north of Durango, the house sits with other houses and has a rural neighborhood feel, homes are not close like in a town, but there are homes in the area around the Cider House. It has a huge yard/orchard on the porch side. Trimble Hot springs is just down the road for swimming and soaking. Hiking, biking, lakes, rivers, etc. are just minutes away from the house.
