Description

Constructed in 1883, when Durango was a young, burgeoning mining town, the Bushnell House, aka A.P. Camp House, is one of the oldest homes in Durango.  This truly Historic home was originally built for A.P. Camp, founder of the Bank of Durango only two years after the incorporation of the town. 

A notable and true example of Victorian era architecture, the Bushnell House is a long-standing pillar of the Durango Historical Society in terms of notable places in the downtown avenues.  Remarkably, this 138 year old home, located just two blocks from Historic Main Avenue, has been owned by only two families during its existence.

In winter (November through April), It is Highly recommended that you have a four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive vehicle, vehicles with medium to high clearance and winter/snow tires. Although the roads and driveway are well-maintained, they will be snow packed and slick. Please be aware that if we have a heavy snowfall, the highways and roads have to be plowed first so that emergency vehicles can get through then driveways will be done so your driveway may not be plowed first thing. They do not plow neighborhood roads or driveways unless we receive 5”-6” of snow.

Consistent with most Colorado mountain resorts, the home does not offer air-conditioning. Home is equipped with either a ceiling fan, box fan and at least one opening window to assist with climate control.
