If you’re fed up with the crush of your fellow tourists, book this cottage and recharge in the quiet countryside. We used it as a base while we explored Mesa Verde and Durango. Proprietors Kristie and Scott are very welcoming, and the cottage is equipped with full kitchen and laundry equipment. A great place to stay.
This small and comfortable house is perfect for a couple that wants calm surroundings after the hustle and bustle of busy Durango. It's about a 20 minute drive from Durango to country scenery and the warm hospitality of Kristie and Scott. The house had all the amenities we needed such as a comfortable bed, deep tub/shower, lots of towels, and a well equipped kitchen. We used it as a home base for Mesa Verde national park, the million dollar highway and downtown Durango.
Just finishing my second stay here at the Hind's historical ranch house! Peace and quiet! The house is set well back from the road, so no traffic noise. Just lots of birds in the trees to listen to, and the back deck is a great place to sit to do some bird watching. Great bed, great bathroom, and the house has a very well equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare your own meals--just bring some food! High on a hill with wonderful views of the San Juan Mountains. Kristie and Scotty are available if you need something, but otherwise give you your privacy. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax after a day of exploration, this is it!
For those staying here I highly recommend taking a day to do a tour on the Ute Mountain Tribal Park just south of Cortez, and I also recommend taking the time for a stop at the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum just six miles down the road in Ignacio--admission is free! Aztec Ruins Natl. Monument is also just a little way south down Rt 550, and this is the closest nice private rental I've found to Chaco Culture Natl. Historical Park, 100 miles south of here down Rt 550--Chaco is a "can't miss" stop for anyone who is interested in the Ancestral Puebloans/Anasazi.
I will definitely be back here again, probably next year! Thank you, Kristie, for making your comfortable, peaceful rental available for Wandering Folks!
it is a very nice cabin on the countryside close to Durango with a decoration that reminds of an english cottage. Very clean. The back yard faces the horses farm. Very good location for excursions around the area. Fantastic if you are looking for a relaxing place to disconnect.
This quiet country setting is just a short drive from Durango. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We saw beautiful horses in the pastures and we saw deer come just outside the yard! We had a wonderful time ☺
