Description

Pine Meadow Cabin vacation rental home between Durango and Bayfield Colorado, is also close to Vallecito Lake, a gorgeous mountain recreation area with boating, fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, four-wheeling and more.

The comfortable cabin is an excellent study in timber-frame construction with the unique and substantially insulating quality of straw bale exterior walls and stucco exterior.   Polished concrete floors and impressive solar gain on this sunny, south-facing hill, finish the home in a remarkably energy efficient and relaxing abode.

The home is located on a 1.6 acre wooded lot, with and open meadow to one side creating an environment of wooded seclusion in this mountain foothills subdivision.  Parking for more than two vehicles is conveniently located away from the gravel access road and in front of the home’s entry.

The home is configured on one level, with two bedrooms, two baths, open living dining space, country kitchen, laundry room covered porch and open patio.  The master bedroom includes king size bed and ensuite full bath.  A queen size bed is located in bedroom 2, and a 3/4 bath services this bedroom as well as the living space.

Seating for dining is provided by the pub-height table for four, and a four-seat dining table is located on the patio along with charcoal grill and kettle-styled fire pit. 

Concerning the home’s location, the drive to and from downtown Durango is about 25 minutes through the beautiful, picturesque Florida River Valley.  While in town, guests will experience excellent restaurants, shopping, art galleries, and great gear for both the summer and winter mountain adventurer.  The famous Durango Train Depot and Museum are right downtown at the corner of Main Avenue and 5th Street.

The Vallecito Lake Marina is about a 25-minute drive away, with boat ramp, slips, boat rentals and more.  Lemon Reservoir, a picturesque non-motorized mountain lake is less than a ten-minute drive, and is a great spot for canoeing, kayaking and more fishing options.

Purgatory Resort, Durango’s main ski resort, is approximately a 50 minute drive away.  The town of Bayfield, Colorado is about a 25-minute drive and LePlatt’s Pond wedding and event center, a very popular venue for family and group events, is close by, near the town of Bayfield.

Mesa Verde National Park, a World Heritage Site, is about an hour drive, with downtown Durango between the Park and this cabin.

Cozy, comfortable, private and woods-y are just a few of the words that accurately describe this true mountain cabin.  Please contact us with any questions to help you decide that this is an excellent vacation home for your group.

In winter (November through April),  It is NECESSARY that you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, vehicles with medium to high clearance and winter/snow tires.  Although the roads and driveway are well-maintained, they are very steep and curvy, and will be snow packed and slick.

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.

In winter (November through April),  It is NECESSARY that you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, vehicles with medium to high clearance and winter/snow tires.  Although the roads and driveway are maintained they are very steep and curvy and will still 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.

There is not cell service at the home but you can use WiFi calling. There also is a landline.


Small dogs are welcome for an additional fee of $75.00. Fee is based on one dog and will be charged separately. Please contact us if you are traveling with more than one dog.
