3/5 Okay

Clean, close to town, best for short stay
We really enjoy renting from Holly, the owner of this property. She is very responsive and accommodating. Internet quality was great and the property is very close to Horse Gulch trailhead and walkable to several restaurants nearby and we took advantage of that. This was the first time we stayed at this house and we were there for 3 weeks, working remote with a small dog. Which for this location was not ideal. The yard is fenced, but very small. The location is off a busy street and across from a bar, which during COVID has its windows open and was loud at night. I can see this location being better for a shorter stay or for someone not trying to work remote. We do plan to rent from Holly again, just at a different location.

Lovely spot, lovely host.
I am so very pleased with my stay; Durango is my hometown, and I came back to bury my parent's remains as they requested. I held a small lovely memorial for them, and Holly was so wonderful and understanding! This cottage is very old-time Durango, and so perfect. I had anticipated my son being there but he could not make it; it would have been perfectly comfortable for a small family or a single as I was. Clean, adorable, comfortable, and close to any part of town. I will stay again and recommend this property owner any time. Thank you!

4/5 Good

Clean, convenient, but no A/C even though listed to have one.
Was very clean. Yard is very small. Tavern across the street was a little loud on weekend nights. No a/c, gas stove for heat looked good. Kitchen lighting wasn’t so good, owners need to replace track light over sink, as 3 out of 4 lights were out. It was very clean and convenient to everything.
