More details about Durango Valley View vacation rental home:
The home is reached via paved roads, and is accessible year round. Outdoor parking for multiple vehicles is located in the flat, gravel driveway next to the home. Rural neighborhood living is a good general description of the location, with neighboring homes nearby, but still offering a reasonable level of privacy in this easy-to-reach residence.
Enjoyment of the home begins when entering the front door, into the open floor plan living room, dining room and kitchen. Comfort and convenience in the living room includes large screen TV with cable service, plus a gas fireplace.
The well-appointed kitchen is open to the living room and dining room, offering ease of use, whether for morning coffee, or at mealtime, with kitchen counter dining in addition to the six place-setting dining table.
Also on the ground-level main floor is the second bedroom, with queen size bed and access to the backyard patio. A full bath can be found between the living room and bedroom, and the laundry room with full-size washer and dryer is located off this hallway nearby.
On the upper level is the master bedroom, with king size bed and spacious sitting area. The master bath, with dual vanities and large walk-in shower, is accessed either directly from the bedroom or the adjacent hallway.
Also on the upper level is the roomy den, with queen size sleeper sofa, which makes a warm and cozy, private area that is separate from the rest of the home’s living space. Just off the den is a covered balcony, with beautiful views of the red cliffs on the opposite side of the valley.
Views of the mountains surrounding the Animas Valley can be seen from within and from outside the home, and the famous Durango Train passes in the distance on a daily basis.

For the cycling enthusiast, the home is located on the main route of the Durango Valley Loop, a very popular road bike ride for locals and visitors, which includes a scenic stop at Baker's Bridge, the famous spot where Butch and Sundance jumped into the Animas River to make their get-away in the now-classic movie. Mountain bike trails are located in all directions nearby including the Hermosa Creek Trail, connecting the Animas Valley to Purgatory (the back way) via miles of backcountry trails in the San Juan National Forest.
Purgatory Resort, approximately 20 minutes from this home, is continually adding amenities and activities to its winter and summer recreation programs including new ski lifts, the Inferno Mountain Rollercoaster, Alpine Slide, zip-line, sleigh rides, tubing hill, lift-assisted mountain bike park, snow shoeing, backcountry exploration, new summer and winter trails and more.
