House rules

At the North City limits of Durango, the Animas Valley Gallery House is set on one acre of gorgeous landscaped "NO SMOKING" property, and shares the land with the separate building your hosts live in. The Gallery Home is 1400 sq ft. in size, and features a deck, HOT TUB, BBQ grill, and fire pit. ALL are PRIVATE for your use. The kitchen is fully equipped, All-weather, no-mud paved driveway access. SPOTLESSLY CLEAN! Please read the exceptional reviews we have been blessed with! DOG RULES BELOW

The space
There are concrete steps leading to the entrance, and a spiral staircase leading to the two upstairs bedrooms. Inside, thirty years of photography by your hosts grace the walls. Captivating Native American portraits (all photographed on the property), as well as artistic aerial work...and stunning Native Hawaiian images will be enjoyed. Outside, the walking bridge to the garden area circles back to a quiet contemplative area right outside your back door. Enjoy the improved trails on the property, or the 50+ miles of trail options located just a few minutes away.

Guest access
The Gallery Home is 100% for your private enjoyment. In addition, the landscaped grounds with a seasonal garden, a gazebo, and access to improved trails are yours to discover.

Other things to note
Unlike the crazy downtown parking scene, we have paved, private, and dedicated parking spaces for you. Have Razr's on a trailer? Towing a Jeep? No problems! Downtown Durango is just 7 minutes away.
Although our "no smoking of anything on property" policy is very firm, you'll find a "butt pole" at the front property line.
You will experience the cleanest accommodations you probably have ever stayed in. WE are the "cleaning crew". Our prior Health Care and Hospitality training will give you the peace of mind that we know how to sanitize, and do so after every stay.

+++++++++PETS++++++++PETS++++++++PETS+++++++++PETS+++++++++
Given that, we have STRICK RULES FOR PETS. REALIZE THIS PROPERTY MAY NOT BE FOR YOU AND YOUR PETS.
PETS ON LEASH (with person holding) outside ALL THE TIME. NO animals left unattended ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY, unless in a secure pet cage. NO animals on ANY furniture, unless you cover up first (we have some old sheets). NO POTTY STOPS EVER on any lawn, or landscaping. Potty areas will be pointed out by the Host, and strictly obeyed. WE HAVE NO FENCED YARD, AND NO DOG RUN. We totally realize these rules are a "turn-off" for many, but the cleanliness and historical nature of the space require them.

Many family reunions occur in Durango. Please contact us if you are thinking of having a family or group get-together during one day of your stay. We'll give you details on parking arrangements, etc.

Kim is a retired NICU (Newborn Intensive Care) Nurse of over 35 years. She loved caring for her babies, and the concerned parents who didn’t expect to know her. Kim loves exercising, gardening, our 4 grown kids, caring for our geriatric cat…and travelling. Dana was a Volunteer Fireman (retired as Safety Officer) for 23 years, and owned Pennington Studio (now Gallery House) for over 30 years. In addition to his award-winning photography, he also designed and implemented an extensive customer engagement campaign for a major timeshare developer. His 17-year work there earned him dozens of awards. Dana is at least for now…”retired”. During the winter months, we travel. We are fortunate that our 4 grown kids and one grandchild live in warmer climates, so we go visit. We also love to cruise and also use our timeshare points. Whether we are on-property or not, we are as accessible as you wish us to be. We love our kids, our home…and our wonderful Country. We’re a land of diverse, hard working citizens…and we all have a story to tell. We would love to hear yours! Gallery House can either be “just a stop” while doing all of the things that the Durango area offers, or a place to relax, linger and explore the many surprises right on the property.

During your stay
Dana and Kim travel extensively, but are available by phone if not on the property. If your Hosts are on property, they will be more than happy to engage you, and point out interesting facts about the area, photography...or "locals info"!
