You have a beautiful view of the mountains from your front porch and deck. We are surrounded by 90 yr. old cottonwoods, about 500 fruit trees, large vegetable gardens, numerous ponds and a small stream that runs through.
Spend a few days or more on a small farm in a beautiful location with plenty of space to relax. Ponds, cows, sheep / lambs, goats, chickens, a dog and 2 cats. We even have a horse barn with 3 stalls. It's like living in a park only better. Just 15-20 minutes to downtown Durango and all it has to offer: great restaurant, galleries, Durango Art Center, theaters and much more.
Our guests have access to all 20 acres, outside eating / grilling area, a tire swing and hammock and beautiful views from their front porch.
Interaction with guests
We are a working farm so we are on property most of the time. Our guests may interact with us or not....whichever they choose
Very quiet neighborhood in a rural setting but not far from Durango.
Being in a rural setting 15 minutes from town our guest will need their own transportation.
We expect our guests to come and relax and enjoy their stay at The Farm while always being considerate of others.
I grew up in Utah but have lived most of my life in Colorado. My husband and I retired in 2009 from the nursery business he started in 1983. We are both very active first with the farm and then with traveling the world in the winter months. I love biking, hiking, running and yoga. I have a passion for interior design and visual presentation. Before joining my husband in the nursery business I had 8 great years at Polo Ralph Lauren in the Creative Services department.
Because we travel so often to so many different countries we appreciate hospitality and great customer service. France is one of our favorite places to visit and can dispel the rumor the French are rude. Quite the contrary we have found them to be very friendly and have gone out of their way to be helpful.
We travel very freely with not a lot of plans or reservations. We love being spontaneous. Because of our style of travel I think you will find us very easy to get along with and will enjoy your Farm Stay with us. It you are the type who needs something to do you can always help in the gardens.
