This place is perfect for people who want peace, quiet and tranquility. It is a very comfortable home amongst the trees about a 15 min drive into down town Durango. We loved the space and ambience about this property. Mara is very hospitable and friendly. I would highly recommend this place to people who want to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday living or need some RnR like we needed.
We definitely recommend this cabin & Mara as a host! We are a family of four with two "tweens" and this was exactly what we wanted. About five minutes from Durango, but up in the mountains in a very quiet neighborhood. The cabin is very clean with a spacious kitchen. We will be back!
This cabin was exactly what I was looking for - a terrific, private, well-maintained 2BR nestled in the woods and with a porch overlooking the mountains, great for a cup of coffee in the morning or grilling / looking at the clear sky at night. Mara was a great host - when I arrived she had freshly baked cookies and a muffin for me, and had put out jams, coffee/tea and some fresh fruit. When the coffee maker didn't work, she came back within a few minutes with a new coffeemaker and fresh coffee beans. She was there for that and one or two questions I had, but otherwise was completely unseen, making the cabin a really perfect mountain getaway, yet only a 10 minute drive away from Downtown Durango.
The cabin was lovely--gorgeous views, great location and all the amenities. The fixtures and appliances are suitable for a longer-term space, which is a big plus for us short-termers. Mara couldn't have been more helpful--a turn-down service of sorts, so that we came home to a warm cabin with inviting Christmas lights, and she helped move us to our next location. Plowed driveways made the snow much more manageable, and nice touches like a cinnamon candle and a spice rack to envy. A bit of confusion about the viability of the booking and our dates, but all's well that ended very well, and am glad we chose to stay here! Highly recommend!
Lovely cottage in the woods, next to owner's home. Ten minutes from downtown Durango.
Large, well equipped kitchen.
Beautiful porch with a view - perfect for evening meals or a peaceful morning cup of coffee while taking in the mountain air. Serenity sometimes interrupted by small dogs next door.
Wood-burning stove was nice. Also made use of space heaters in bedrooms for warmth.
Large, two sink bathroom.
Large, attractive bedrooms.
Beautiful decor - stained glass windows.
Wi-Fi present, but unable to get internet access during our stay.
Mara was a perfect guest, very nice to communicate with, and who took care of my place wonderfully. I highly recommend her to any host here, and since she is operating her own vacation rental too, I am very confident that she must be a perfect host.
Mara books in advance and worked out all details long before her arrival. She does require a microwave, of which I did not have, but we found her one, and all things worked out suitable! She's quite, congenial and clean.
