The cool and quiet bedroom on the first floor is steps from the full bathroom, and the kitchen. It sleeps two in a comfortable queen bed. The animas river trail outside the front door will take you to all the attractions offered by the river corridor walk to downtown Durango.

The space

Great family home in arguably the best neighborhood in Durango. You will be centrally located with great access to the river, area trails and the downtown shops and dining establishments. We look forward to sharing our local trail knowledge.

Guest access

Kitchen and grill use, as well as space in the fridge if space is available. Full shared bathroom, laundry facilities, wifi. Free parking on the street, as well as off street parking, garage space for gear.

Interaction with guests

We like to meet and get to know our guests, giving them local trail knowledge or dining suggestions. However if it is space you need we respect that as well.

Other things to note

To walk at a leisurely pace to the downtown area takes 15 minutes. A bike can get you there in 5 minutes.

Please note that the house is currently being remodeled. There is an unfinished room, for example, as you enter the house. Rest assured however, the bedroom and shared living spaces will be clean, comfortable and ready for you when you arrive.

While the floor tends to feel a bit cool, especially in the morning, we would really appreciate it if you remove your shoes upon entering the kitchen/main area of the house. It can be pretty dusty in Durango, and it makes a big difference when we leave shoes at the kitchen door. Packing a warm pair of socks or slippers for around the house would be a good idea when coming to stay here. Thanks!

Wonderful place. We enjoyed walking by the river and spending the day downtown. Mike had a wealth of maps and showed us a bunch of places to hike. The warm fire in the living room was a treat after a rainy walk. I highly recommend this Location. Thanks!

Mike and Nancy's place was perfect for our stay in Durango. We were able to walk into town on the river trail which is right across the street from their house. They made us feel right at home. We were only there a short time but learned a lot about the area from them. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in that I can remember. They are doing a lot of renovating but it did not interfere with our stay at all. We will stay with them when we visit Durango again.

Mike and Nancy were extremely friendly and welcoming, loaned us bikes for getting around town and were very flexible and gracious when our plans changed unexpectedly. The home is in a great location, very close to the beautiful river trail which is an easy ride or walk downtown and the room is clean and comfortable. They are a boisterous family of early risers and this room is right off the kitchen and shared bathroom so not exactly quiet early in the morning, but the trade-off is a really warm family environment!

From the moment we arrived Michael and Nancy made us feel comfortable and at home. Yes, the home is undergoing a renovation but it is clean and safe and we always felt well looked after! We enjoyed getting to know the other guests and this fun little town. The house is well situated as you can get to town easily, drive to Silverton with no problem, or simply walk along the trail.We especially enjoyed the fish hatchery which is just a short walk away! In addition, it was a real treat for my son to play with Evan and Kate who were a delight - as were their patents! Thank you Mike and Nancy for taking care of us so well!

We had a great stay with Mike and Nancy! We arrived pretty late from Mesa Verde and Mike was up to greet us. We chatted for a bit and then got a nice tour - our room was great (and right near the bathroom). We enjoyed getting to know the family and other guests and had a great walk from the house to town via the bike path in the morning. We would definitely stay here again!

My wife Nancy and I live with our two school-aged children in Durango, Colorado. We also have a grown daughter who resides in Denver, Colorado. I am a builder, Nancy is a massage therapist. We like to take advantage of the great outdoor recreation this area has to offer. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, river play and the mountain fresh air. The kids 10 and 8 and are very well behaved (most of the time). They love to spend time outdoors exploring their world and just being kids. Other members of our family include a wonderfully lovable 15 year old Chocolate Lab named Dutch, a 6 year old bunny, Professor Nom Nom, and 7 chickens (yes, they have names too!). They are sweet girls and will hopefully be laying by mid-Fall. We love to share them with our guests when available.
Taking time to travel and visit family is important to us. When we hit the rode, whether the destination is near or far, you will likely find us in our comfy remodeled school bus camper---our home away from home!
