"We come here now two years in a row. The cottage is so quaint and the setting so peaceful and lovely. We had only to bring our own groceries for the week as the cottage is perfectly equipped with everything we needed. The bed is comfortable and management is quick to respond if there are any problems. We've spent two days Jeeping in the high country and two days fishing( very successfully) at both Lakes Haviland and Molas. The leaves were at their peak this year making Last Dollar Road, Owl Creek Pass, the Million Dollar Highway and the San Juan Skyway particularly beautiful. Truly this place is a bit of heaven on earth!"

"We enjoyed this cottage & the property so much! This was just what we were looking for, & just “as advertised “. The Cottage itself was not a “plush” house, or a resort-like space, but it did have very nice accommodations. Really a very cozy & comfortable space, with wonderful surroundings…from the large deck, mountains visible all around, the great flowing creek located just below the outer area of the deck, & a beautiful lake across from that area, on the adjacent property. Really well cared for grounds around the cottage as well. It was not only a relaxing house, but also peaceful & quiet all the while. We enjoyed it, & would recommend it to anyone. Mike & Margaret (& Poko too!)"

"We stayed here in 2022 and loved it so stayed again this summer. The patio is wonderful and we used the grill, which was nice. It is located perfectly for us as we are golfers. VERY close to Dalton Ranch and convenient to Glacier. A short drive into town as well. There is a small grocery store very close and the City Market is a short drive. The kitchen is well supplied, although we couldn't find any baking sheets. The WIFI didn't work per instructions so I was given a different way to get WIFI, which was not reliable. The WIFI situation needs to be looked into. We noticed that the mattress is starting to slump in the middle and should be replaced. We got warm every night while sleeping and had trouble getting the AC program to stay cooler at night for us."

"Sweet cottage, well appointed, with spectacular views. Very peaceful and relaxing. The yard is full of flowers that invite hummingbirds and butterflies. Easy access to downtown and great restaurants. Our personal favs were Michelle's, 636 Main, and Cream Bean Berry for artisanal ice cream."

"We loved our time at Cottage on the Creek! A cozy, clean, updated little house in an idyllic setting. So restful and lovely, it was hard to head out each day to see the sights. (But we did, because Durango area is great!) Wish we lived close enough to book time here a couple times a year."

"Our stay was completely enjoyable and relaxing. We enjoyed the back deck overlooking the creek every morning with coffee and every evening with a glass of wine. Everything was comfortable and very clean. It was about a 20-25 minute drive into Durango but worth it for all the quiet and beauty. So many activities in the area to enjoy."

"The cottage is as described in the VRBO listing. The view from the deck is great. The cottage is comfortable. We met the owner Clark who lives next door when he was gardening and he is terrific and accommodating. There are grassy areas for your dog. Five stars and highly recommended except for the management company. I could give several examples, but just three so this doesn't get too long: 1) I called and asked if we could get into the cottage half an hour early (at 3: 30) if empty and was told yes, it was ready, but the charge to get in early (even less than half an hour) was $50. 2) The management company requires renters to sign an extremely one-sided contract (in addition to VRBO's rules) long after the reservation when it is inconvenient to change plans. 3) The email with check-out instructions said to set the AC to 58 degrees - we were there in late July. I could go on."

"Okay, first, I don't want to share just how fabulous this home away from home is because I want it available whenever I need a bit of peace in this slice of paradise. That's my highest accolade! A precious place that's babbling creek, lush gardens and carpet of green grass immediately inspired me to exhale and relax. The cottage & wrap around deck has everything needed. This comfy, and respite from the crowds is a wonderful location to commune with nature. It's a home base for fabulous hiking and exploring Durango, the joys of the Million Dollar winding highway, Silverton, and a refreshing nap after a day of exploring and falling in love with Colorado. I love this place. The current owners are the icing on the cake because they are the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. I'm in love."

"If you are looking for something quiet and beautiful then this is your place. We just loved the sound of the creek and overlooking it on the back porch was a great way to end the day. There was a lot to do for outdoor activity and the owner was so nice and helpful. I was very thankful for his hospitality and knowledge of the areas. There is no negative aspects to this house. It's clean comfortable peaceful and quiet. I loved it and would definitely stay there again and again Kathy"
