All about Lynn “Lynsee”’s place

I can book one reservation within in a 30 day cycle. If you request shorter stay (and please feel free to request) a 5 day minimum is required. The requirement on my side is that I don’t book guests the rest of month. Message for request of dates.

A sunny fully furnished two bedroom ( 2 QUEENS, not doubles as listed) with a private entrance is the perfect base for all your Durango activities! Great views, steps away from Main Street.
Luxurious linens, wireless, premium Satellite.

The space
Light filled with views of Laplata mountains and downtown historical neighborhood and Main Street including Strater Hotel. Two bedrooms with QUEEN beds, (not doubles) with a private separate entrance with sunny front porch overlooking historical third ave boulevard! Comfort level, accouterments, lighting, unique interior design have been carefully considered. And..."location ,location location" could not be better for getting the real feel of this charming Colorado town.

Guests have complete privacy. Texting requests is preferable. However we are avail. for voice calls...or will return calls with in a reasonable time.

BuckhornTransportation is recommended to from airport.

Nest is a downtown location with its urban upbeats, downtown noise considerations that might be disturbing but are generally manageable. We have yet to have one complaint.

The studio "Downtown Durango Diggs" ( see other listing ) is located on bottom floor with its own patio and separate entrance if you need a third bedroom for groups...

Nearby.....
Nest is sitting in the heart of the 3rd Avenue Historical District. A beautiful boulevard lined with trees, historic old houses and churches two blocks off Main Street. Second Avenue (one block or basically behind Nest) holds the fabulous Rochester Hotel (recommend staying here if unable to stay at Nest) which during the summer months has many garden afternoon music events and art exhibits. These events are a local's staple to meet up with neighbors and friends and are a nice way for you to mingle with the "natives".
Steps away on Second Ave. touts the Durango Art Center. We have 5? Plus breweries in town. Animas Brewery has good food and nice atmosphere on river trail. Ska (our native son and pretty infamous) is out in Bodo Park and worth a visit,. Check them all out.
Locals favorite Second Ave Deli and Spirits is one block away.
Highly recommend East by Southwest.

The Ore House has been here for over 40 years and sports the feel of a true Colorado town steakhouse whose highly acclaimed Chef Ryan who recently raised the bar on the entire menu. Proof of birthday give you that % off.

Amaya spa with a soaking tub is one block away and has great treatments including but not limited to massages and acupuncture with hot soaking tub and cold plunge.
And you haven't even reached Main Street!
On your way out to hike ski or? Grab a burrito at Zia TAQURIA . Hands down best mex in town. Or head over to Bread as the sandwiches are undisputedly worth the mile ride up Florida road. Once a week stop for us. Best coffee, sandwiches and of course...bread.
More recommendations on the FOODIE SIDE...


Another revision of restaurant recommendations below...

First I'm going to talk about the ones NOT to go to because there are so many good ones in town! These are a few that I wouldn't waste my money or time on. And these are restaurants that friends and I have had a three strikes you're out.

Prospector on corner. This one is tempting to go to because it's right on the corner from house. But fails on service and food inconsistency.
KEN AND SUE's. Everyone will recommend this to you on the airplane but the locals have been kind of disappointed with this place it used to be good.. but alas no longer.




“Now here the good ones!
THE BALCONY. Best quality stepped up ! bar food, service and views!
CHIMAYO. Tops the list has something for everyone always fresh the owner chef is there all the time as well as the front of the house be at a Bergeta, wife of chef and also the owner of course. I like to sit either at the bar or at the tall tables in the front so you can watch the people.
EOLUS. Wonderful food, nice room. Summertime they have a great patio on top of the roof with sunset views.
Seasons. Local favorite.
THE PALACE RESTAURANT, sadly closed.
ANIMAS BREWERY. Burgers and more.
EL MORO. Eclectic menu pretty fabulous, great bar scene. Served later into the night than other restaurants. Love the hot cheese puffs. And Carmel corn. Bartenders are mixologists.
ORE HOUSE. Creative young new chef. Steaks and more. Chateaubriand!!! Traditional Colorado steak house great sides and sauces with fish as well. On your birthday? (Bring proof) you get that percentage off your meal!!
EAST BY SOUTHWEST and THE TRIANGLE (sister restaurants) Pretty great sushi and pad this. Heard the steak were relishes as well. Locals favorite. Try RICE MONKEY too. Casual FEW SEATS. Good take home. . My fav grab and go is SIZZLING SIAM. Next or near to train depot.
All these restaurants are within walking distance. But I really love KENEBECK CAFE. It's a 10 minute drive west. But everything is great there and I think they even have a nice weekend brunch. It's in the La Plata Canyon's which which is beautiful.
BREW PUB . Three blocks from Nest and Diggs. New brewery. Has a pretty creative chef. And their fried pickles are the best I've had anywhere. But you got to be into fried pickles. Their menu is really pretty sophisticated for a brewery. I need to revisit as the new menu looks interesting.
SEASON's. All time locals favorite!
HYWAY THREE ROADHOUSE. Two minute drive out of town, locals locals locals! Well loved Chuck Norton chef/owner is from NEW ORLEANS and his food selections show it to its shiny best. Can you say oysters? Gumbo? He's a fabulous guy and I should mention chef. Also caters ... If you have any need for a party, redemption. Only open Weds thru Friday. Early evenings happy hours only. An experience.

ZIA TAQURIA !!! is one of the BEST REALLY THE BEST, Mexican food places in town, and there are two locations. Treat it as your healthy FAST FOOD ( grab and go on your way out to adventures) or dine in and enjoy their terrific margaritas.

There's several coffee shops around nest and diggs. BREAD. Best coffee and it's a great grab a sandwich for hiking or the train or whatever you have in mind for the day. Cookies, individual quiches (mmmm), brownies and BREAD is worth the drive.
If you just feel like a bagel for breakfast DURANGO BAGEL which is down by the train station on second is pretty good. People swear by the DURANGO DINER for breakfast as a local's diner. (They will even serve you breakfast I'ver at the RANCH if you want Bloody Mary or? With their famous green chili huervos rancheros! )
Carvers is very popular with the biking locals. I like OSCARS which is over by the city market. Simple standard big played goodness. Truckers breakfast and diners lunch.
Please write down comments in the little books and let other guests know what you liked and what you might recommend.

Hope this helps enjoy your time (eating, drinking) in Durango! If any other questions or you want me to specifically help you pick out a restaurant just tell me what you feel like having and I'm happy to send recommendations your way.
Bon appetite!"
Lynn

Travelin' fool who loves hopping in the truck to head to the mountains, San Pancho Mexico, Utah and music festivals. Telluride, Austin, Crested Butte, New Orleans, Denver and Chicago are favored cities. Love four star hotels but often just hit the dirt road and camp out of the back of my truck in new places. "Fort Builder" as a kid and continue as a grown-up on a grander style creating warm beautiful spaces as a design consultant here in Durango. Love to guide visitors on what to do when it comes to enjoying the Durango, the Four Corners area and surrounding western slope of Colorado. I want everyone who visits to have an amazing vacation that they will always remember as one of the best.
