Newly remodeled cozy cottage.

Completely remodeled, brand new big kitchen, all new appliances, including washer and dryer. Radiant slab heating, working fireplace, fire wood provided. Hiking trail leaves from property. Very near Durango Mountain Resort, which has year-round activities. Easy access to Highway 550. Close to many hiking trails, mountain lakes, and other recreational opportunities.

Ideal Cabin & Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and location were perfect for our three day stay in the Durango area. We can't say enough nice things about how beautiful the interior was for comfort and privacy. Much care has gone into this VRBO.

The Best Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom cabin was nestled in the woods in a very quiet and beautiful mountain community. It was everything that the VRBO information said it was. We have rented a number of VRBO places and this was the best. The craftsmanship inside and out was unmatched in our experience. The nighttime sky was spectacular due to the lack of light pollution and the wildlife was abundant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if we plan on travelling to the Durango area again we would want to stay here.

Birder's Paradise in the Pines

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully crafted small cottage in the pines with a surprising amount of space given the owner's talent for woodworking. Numerous cabinets and drawers for storage so you never feel cramped. Updated kitchen and appliances and a washer and dryer neatly tucked away under the stairs. The only issue was the beautiful wood floors and staircase which were very slick for my standard poodle. I ended up sleeping on the pull-out couch since he couldn't get up the stairs without falling. Next time I will put traction pads on his toes so it won't be an issue.

We spent many hours on the lovely deck watching the countless variety of birds, and with the addition of a hummingbird and seed feeder, there was never a dull moment with the flurry of activity. Some of the birds noted include: black rosy finches, steller's jay, chickadees, mountain bluebird, nuthatches and downy woodpeckers.

Hard to leave such a beautiful and peaceful place, and without a doubt we want to return again next year. The Taylor cottage is all that and more.
