BUNKHOUSE/CABIN: This little cabin is perfect for a couple or small close knit family traveling on a budget. It was originally a one room log structure build in 1989 for the owners of the main cabin for sleeping quarters for grand kids and other visitors. In 2015 I refinished it inside and out and added a bathroom, kitchenette and covered deck. It is uniquely handcrafted, comfortable, cozy and cute as a bugs ear. Although, it is close to the main cabin, the separate parking, entry, deck and grill are positioned in an effort to achieve privacy even when the main cabin is occupied. The main room has a full sized bed with new mattress, twin bunk beds and a living area. The kitchenette has granite counter top with drop in cook-top and compact oven. Every bit of space is utilized to provide the well equipped cooking utensils and food storage for those who enjoy good home cooked meals. The patio table and chairs on the outside deck offer a great place to dine and relax but if you prefer dining inside a drop leaf table and folding chairs can seat 4. The bathroom (toilet and shower) is new and well appointed.
LOCATION/SETTING: This property lies in the foothills of the La Plata Mountain Range just 5 miles of paved country road from Mancos, Colorado. It sets on 3 acres of pine, juniper and gambel's oak trees. At an elevation of 7820 feet the summer evenings are generally cool and daytime temperatures are mild. The mesa top of Mesa Verde NP marks the horizon of the evening sunsets. A 30 minute drives gets you to historic downtown Durango. This proximity offers scenic beauty and too many outdoor activities and attractions to list. Take some time to relax on the deck and enjoy the resident birds, deer and maybe even a sighting of fox, bobcat or coyote.
