Description

City of Durango Permit #17-029

Our 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home was built in the early 1890s and was one of the first homes built in Durango. The home is on the Animas River and across the street from Fassbinder park and just a 5 minute walk to the heart of historic downtown Durango as well the Animas River Trail.

The historic home features a private stone path to just above the Animas River which crosses the old dirt driveway which was used to park the horse and carriage and access the home.

Updated but retains its historic charm with exposed brick, arch windows and crown molding.

The gourmet kitchen includes professional-grade cooking appliances and is fully stocked with utensils, cookware and dinner ware.  Beyond the kitchen, is the den / media room, with large TV, sofa and lounge-y furniture and gas fireplace. 

A basement-level utility room includes full-sized washer and dryer, and is large enough for bike, ski and other outdoor gear storage.

In town, the paved Animas River Trail, accessed by a short walk from this home,  runs the entire length of town along the river, making for easy commuting to parks, restaurants, a day spa and other downtown destinations, as well providing an excellent fitness and scenery corridor.  Guests can walk to the Animas River Trail with a choice of two separate paths; one is just a few doors away on the Main Avenue bridge over the river, and the other is via a suspension footbridge about a block away.  .

Bed Configuration:
Master Bedroom - King bed with TV and Ensuite Bath (2nd Floor)
Bedroom 2 - Queen bed, (2nd Floor)
Bedroom 3 - Queen bed, (2nd Floor)

Please note: There are security cameras located on the outside of the front door and laundry room door. Both point out into the yard. There is another in the entry pointing toward the front door. There are no other cameras inside the home.

Stay with us and we offer DISCOUNTS on both summer (white water rafting, horseback riding etc.) and winter (ski/snowboard rentals, sleigh rides, snowmobile tours etc.) activities.

"WE had a nice time and enjoyed our stay. We did notice however that the house and the grounds could use some maintenance. I have an Air BnB and know that the maintenance are important to keep up with."

"I can’t review this because the storm that blew in prevented us from making it to town safely. So we lost our money, and I was very sad."

"We loved staying a the Pake Avenue home. It was spacious, cozy and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The location cannot be beat and we enjoyed every minute -- we will be back. Shout out to Cindy at VRC for taking care of all our needs, recommending great restaurants, and quickly answering all our questions. Durango and the Park home surpassed our expectations."

"We loved the house and the location was better than it appeared on the map. My only suggestion would be to repair the blinds. In the 2 secondary bedrooms, one would not go up and one (in the blue room) would not go down. We had to put a towel up over the window. Also, the shower head in the primary bathroom drips. Also, I think better pillows would make a big difference. But it was clean and fun and had everything we needed and more. None of these issues would prevent us from staying there again. Really a wonderful property!"
