Overview

About the property

3 bedroom / 2 bath, 2,100 square foot guest cottage

Aspen Cottage offers the ideal combination of the peaceful rural beauty of nature with a convenient location to the many opportunities that the charming Western town of Durango and its surroundings provide.

Commonly seen on the property are herds of migrating elk, wild turkeys, many other small animals, birds including hawks and eagles and, of course, horses. Nestled in the Animas Valley the views are spectacular from every direction.

In Colorado’s SW corner at 6500’ elevation of the southern Rocky Mountain Range, Durango displays the beauty of the four seasons while boasting 300 days of sunshine annually. Winter provides skiing & snowboarding at the family-friendly ski resort and sleigh rides at Rapp Corral. Summer offers opportunities for trail riding, hiking, rafting, fishing, boating and golfing. Side trips include the narrow-gauge steam engine train to Silverton and the Indian ruins at Mesa Verde National Park. Durango’s western charm is enhanced with many fine restaurants, breweries, historic bars, unique shops, entertainment and community events. As a college town, Fort Lewis College adds its youthful vitality.

Note: temporary horse boarding available with rental.

Horse accommodations available: $50/horse/night.

Required: current Coggins and Health Certificate.

Fresh-bedded stalls with runs and automatic waters; grass hay; private grass paddock turnout; arena.

Trail right outside your door leading to San Juan National Forest; short hauling to many trail heads.

Aspen Cottage was PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We skied at Purgatory, visited Mesa Verde National Park, shopped in Durango, and we watched the elk, horses, and wild turkeys.The location was great because it sat right in the middle of Purgatory and Durango, yet it was off the beaten path. The property was nestled up against the mountains and was gorgeous! The staff involved in booking, and checking-in and out were so nice and helpful, and the owner of the property made sure we had what we needed. We will definitely be back - but maybe next time in the summer for some fishing, golfing, and hiking.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Loved our week in Aspen Cottage at Hoops Ranch. It exceeded our expectations, many extras you don't ordinarily get. The views are amazing, very relaxing sitting on porch,. So much to do in Durango and surrounding area.Can't wait to return.

Great stay in Durango

  • 5 of 5

This house worked very well for our stay for the month of July. The views were beautiful. The manager was very helpful and accommodating . The house was well stocked and furnished.. It is almost equal distance between Durango and Purgatory. It was a wonderful stay.

There are not enough words!!! WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in several VRBO and other rentals and this was by far the best experience we have had. IF you are anything like us (a little OCD) and like your own things you will appreciate it when I say we always bring our own pillows and maybe blankets if we have room or we end up going on day one to the closest store to get what we need for our rental. NOT THIS TIME! :) In fact we purchased nothing and actually came home and purchased the blankets they had on the beds. That is just the little things. The huge plus for us what the view, the privacy and just getting to stay in this little piece of paradise was worth its weight in gold. The staff and the owners treated us like family and were there if we wanted or needed anything but let us just be in privacy which was amazing. We were able to really spend time with friends and family and it felt like home. IF you get the opportunity to stay at Aspen Cottage or one of the other properties we highly recommend it. Thanks again to all the staff who made our vacation the absolute best!

Best Place to spend a white Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay in Durango at Christmas time and the property was a big part of that. The home was beautiful and very comfortable with a stupendous view. We enjoyed peace and quiet, allowing us to admire the wildlife and to escape our busy lives. Travel in to town was easy, so we also took advantage of nice restaurants and fun shopping. Those who wanted to ski and ice-skate found affordable and convenient places, and those who wanted to relax were rewarded by the excellent nearby Trimble spa. We enjoyed it all and found the rate to be really reasonable with all sorts of amenities. Our recommendation? Go!
