Description

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom single level home was built in 1955 by one of the original homesteaders on what used to be one of the original valley ranches north of Durango, where privacy abounds and frequent wildlife sightings include deer, elk, black bear, wild turkey, hawks etc.
.  
The home has been completely remodeled offering a fantastic gourmet kitchen and modern bathrooms as well as AC but also retains its original charm. The property also features a fenced yard, outdoor covered space and a seasonal irrigation creek that runs thru the property.

Bed Configuration (single level home):
Master Suite - King Bed with private bath
2nd Bedroom - Queen Bed
3rd Bedroom - Bunk Beds (Single over Single)

"This was our 3rd summer staying at the rock house. I can not imagine a more perfect place to stay. It is stocked with all the kitchen silverware, utensils, pots pans and dishes one could want. The bedrooms bathrooms and sitting areas are very well done and very clean and neat. The setting is fantastic with places for the dog and a covered outside area to suit all your needs. It is very private, quiet, and secure with a large lawn in the front and back. All of which is perfectly maintained. This is definitely a 5 star vacation home."

"Awesome property, we enjoyed our stay in a quiet community outside of Durango. Very pet friendly, well appointed and clean house. Hiking, enjoying sunrise and wildlife watching were highlights of our trip. We would definitely recommend this property and will come back."

"This was an amazing getaway in Durango, CO. It was a perfect 3 acre private space with plenty of room for our party of 5. We enjoyed cooking and baking in the well appointed kitchen. The outside space was phenomenal and even our dog loved their fenced in space to roam around. Lots of wildlife sightings (deer and turkey). Would definitely recommend this place and would definitely stay again! Owners are not far down the road, but not intrusive. Very pleasant people! The management company is also very attentive but not intrusive. 5/5 stars for us."

"The Rock House is in an amazing area for a peaceful retreat! Views and plenty of space to relax inside and out. We were able to easily get into Durango in less than 15 min. There is a gourmet grocery store up the road as well as a few restaurants in the area. The gourmet kitchen was a treat to prepare meals and was stocked beyond basics. During our stay, the kitchen was a bit cold compared to the rest of the house. We had an issue with the oven, but the property company was responsive and had repair crew out next eve. The fireplace with stocked wood provided cozy fires in the evenings after exploring. Beds were beyond comfy and many luxury amenities in the bathrooms. Wifi worked great for planning out activities. A side note the TV does not offer streaming - it does offer plenty of channels though and was not an issue for us. A guidebook with clear instructions for the home would be a nice addition as we spent some time trying to figure a few things out. Check out was a little unclear due to messages from two different sources. The keypad was a little tricky for us, but a quick phone call took care of it. The amount of the extra fees made the rate not as affordable for us. Overall, we appreciated such a lovely place to stay and the time the property management company took to help us with a last minute booking - Recommended stay!"

"This was our second stay at the Rock House and it was just as great as the first, this time we brought friends, and we did plenty of cooking and exploring the area. The dog loves the snow and the enclosed dog run. Can't wait to come back a third time next year!"

"Our experience at the Durango Rock House was nothing short of magical. It was a perfect autumn escape. From the pristine setting to the immaculate condition of the cabin, we could not have been happier. In the evening, we sat by the creek and watched the Elk bugle and spar as part of their Fall mating ritual. The kitchen is definitely a cooks kitchen, enabling us to home make fresh food from local farms and stands. The traditional fire place really set the ambiance on cool mornings and evenings. Top it all off with the steam shower in the master. It was a taste of an old fashioned lifestyle with all of the modern conveniences. The renovation to this historic cabin is truly impressive. Every detail was in order while maintaining the charm and authenticity of the cabin."
