Durango, Colorado
A TRIP ADVISOR/FLIPKEY FIVE STAR home, IN TOWN, w/privacy and STUNNING VIEWS. This home is perched on top of a hill and overlooks the beautiful Animas River Valley yet only 5 minutes from historic downtown Durango. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps six, with all the conveniences of home, including a fully equipped kitchen, gas grill on the spacious deck, laundry inside home, linens, soaps, and great internet service as of summer of 2016. Its just up the road from the beautiful river walk that runs about 7 miles, one way, and takes you through downtown Durango and beyond. Just a couple of minutes from the nearest grocery store, bakery, and many restaurants, art galleries, and our recreation center with pools, hot tubs, & exercise equipment and classes, this home still has privacy and probably the best views of any in-town...

Typically there is a 4 night minimum unless we have 3 nights in between stays. If you have never been to our area before, 4 days isn't enough time to see and do all the great things available in our area. This I can say from our first visit to Durango, CO in the 70's
