This adorable studio is located on 5 acres of riverfront property. River access is available for paddle boarding the Animas River. You have the spaciousness of being in the country but are less than 5 minutes from the best pizza in town. The Animas City River Trail bike path is directly accessible from the property. You will be able to access through a locked gate and all of downtown is a fun 10-minute bike ride away.
Traveling with another couple? Ck out "Get-away by the River"

The space
The beautifully decorated studio has a queen bed with a new Sealy mattress along with a Lazy boy pull-out loveseat with a memory foam mattress. There is a complete kitchen that includes a Keurig coffee maker, microwave, toaster, fridge/freezer, full stove, and some basic spices.
Guests have private/locked access to a laundry room that is shared with the adjacent 1 bedroom apartment.

Coffee, cream, and some snacks will be waiting to greet you as well as brochures from our favorite restaurants and sights to see in the area.

Netflix and streaming are available on the 32 inch TV, so please remember to bring your own log-in information and password to access.

Guest access
You have full use of the patio that could be shared by the 1 bedroom apartment the next day if it is rented.

If you are traveling with another couple or are a larger family, consider renting both places. Check out "Get-a-way by the Riverside" on Airbnb

There are chairs and a table for eating outside. There is also a picnic table south of the studio that you can enjoy under the trees.

If you would like to access the river, please follow the dirt road to the side of the property and then cut over when you see the bench by the river. This will avoid you from walking in our private home space. (which is important to us.)

Our swimming pond is absolutely NOT accessible to guests. (sorry) . But the good news is you have one of the only private access points to the Animas River north of town. So Enjoy! (and respect :)

Other things to note
NO PETS of any kind can be accommodated. (so sorry)
Please do not inquire if staying includes a dog or a cat.
Thanks for understanding.

The riverfront property is just on the edge of town with protected undeveloped land on 3 sides. Along with river access, the Narrow Gauge Railroad track is adjacent to the river -bike path. (We can tell you our favorite conductor to wave at :)

A short walk north of the property along the bike path is a 1-mile loop in the cottonwoods that is perfect for bird lovers. This spring there were 11 heron nests, a bald eagle nest and we got to witness 2 baby owls within moments of their hatching. Nice sandy beaches also allow for you to just hang out by the river and enjoy.

During your stay
The studio is on the same property as my residence. I will often be on the property during your stay. And while I enjoy meeting people from around the world, we might not necessarily interact in order to maintain each of our privacy.
You may call or text me with any questions, however. (Preferably after 8 am and before 9 pm unless it is an emergency.)
There is a private lockbox for you to have access to the studio key. Once booked and confirmed, I will give you the lock box code. Please return the key in the lockbox before leaving.
