About the property

3 Bedroom 1 Bath Private Single Story, Pet And Kid Friendly Home With WiFi

Casa Durango is a charming 3 bedroom 1 bath 1300 sq ft home located on Durango's northwest grid. Our home was originally built in 1896 and was recently updated to include a new kitchen, bathroom, interior paint and furnishings. It still has that vintage feeling but has all the modern amenities. Our home, like most homes in Durango, does not have AC, but the temperature is easily manageable.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and utensils and the dining table comfortably seats four and does have an additional leaf to seat a few more. The living room has a L-shaped couch, large ottoman, a Samsung 40" tv with DirecTV and high speed WiFi.

Two bedrooms have new comfortable queen beds and the third bedroom has a new twin daybed with trundle mattress and all have high quality linens and pillows. The third bedroom also has a large beanbag, 36" Flat screen TV with DirecT & Roku and many shelves containing games and puzzles. The backyard is fenced and there is a new gas BBQ on the deck. During the summer there is a outdoor dining set on the deck which seats six people.

Walk, hop on one of our cruisers (5 available) or take the Durango Trolly which stops 1 block from the house into the historic downtown district for dinner, shopping, bars or to just wander around.

There are so many great outdoor activities in and around the Durango area: Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Rail Road, Mesa Verde National Park, Durango Mountain Resort, Sky Ute Casino, Telluride, Gold Medal fly fishing, Animas River, horse back riding, golf, skiing, Jeep tours, rafting, hunting, kayaking, historic district, shopping, world class mountain and road biking, scenic tours and motorcycle touring.

The Animas River is only a three minute walk from the house. If you choose to walk downtown, the swing bridge over the Animas River is only blocks away as is the bike path. Historic downtown Durango is less than a mile from the house and an easy walk.

Wake up to the whistle of Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train and we hope you enjoy your stay at our home.

About Lisa & Johnny Fort

Johnny and I love Durango and we hope you will too. We try and get back there as often as possible and by recently turning the house into a vacation rental (v. a long term rental) allows us to actually stay in the house when we visit. We are Northern California natives and currently reside in Corte Madera, CA.

Lisa & Johnny Fort purchased this house in 2005

Why Lisa & Johnny Fort chose Durango

Johnny bought the house sight unseen after visiting Durango to visit a friend who had lived there since college. The residential neighborhood is convenient to everything and the neighbors are all very friendly.

What makes this house unique

It's a funky old property that was build in the late 1800's. It has a lot of heart and still has that old rustic, southwest cabin feel.

Snow and puppies!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time taking our dogs and best friends to all see the snow for the first time! We love Colorado but being able to share this experience with was awesome. House was clean, ready early and easy to communicate with owners. Thanks!

Clean, well equipped, spacious. Nice place.

  • 4 of 5

Casa Durango is a nice cottage about a mile from downtown Durango. The cottage is nicely decorated, clean and plenty spacious for an average size family or small group. It’s in a quiet neighborhood away from the busyness of the main drag.

We stayed at this property at the beginning of October. The property and location were perfect. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. We would definitely rent this house again.

Was our second time staying at Casa Durango. We loved it even more this time!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Durango is a wonderful house. Incredible location, cozy inside, great outdoor hangout space, and perfectly equipped! This was our second time staying here, and the owners have made some very nice improvements. Lisa and Johnny checked in multiple times, and they were great hosts all around. I am very stingy with giving 5 star reviews, but this place truly deserves it! Awesome!

Adorable home with everything you need

You won't be disappointed in this rental. The cruisers definitely made trips downtown on the bike path memorable. Thank you for sharing them with us! It is a great spot for all Durango has to offer. Clean, cute, and well supplied.

Charming home with great downtown access!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Durango. The house is cozy and perfect for 4-legged friends. The location is an easy walk/bike ride to the river walk and downtown area. The property provides bicycles and we found it to be the most convenient way of getting around town. Great stay!
