Southwest Colorado's Premier Vacation Retreat

Family-friendly vacation home in Durango
During Covid-19, we are scheduling guests 72 hours apart to ensure the safest environment possible for our guests as recommended by the World Heath Organization until future notice. Rincon Lodge is located just east of historic Durango, Colorado (approx 15-20 min) where you can enjoy countless seasonal activities such as golfing, horseback riding, river rafting, shopping, dining, and world-class hunting & fishing. Also nearby are Mesa Verde National Park, the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad, two ski areas (Durango Mountain Resort and Wolf Creek Ski Area), and natural healing hot spring spas. Built in 1995-1996, the lodge itself is a magnificent 6,500 square foot custom log home with expansive wrap-around decks offering views of the majestic La Plata Mountains, the Florida Mesa, and abundant wildlife. Open floor plans, cathedral ceilings, and soaring windows provide views of deer, elk, and wild turkey seen almost daily year-round. Inside the lodge, seven bedrooms will accommodate up to 20 guests with room for more upon request. The main floor has three full-size sofas as well as additional seating for comfortable relaxation and is situated around a floor to ceiling wood burning river rock fireplace with satellite television and a DVD/VCR. Several entryways provide access to covered decks with panoramic views. Private bedrooms include shared full baths and another half bath with shower just around the corner. The dining area and kitchen on the main floor feature a teak dining table easily seating ten people with additional leafs for expansion. A massive elk antler chandelier adorns the area. The custom kitchen and center island features solid granite countertops, a six burner gas range, double ovens, and everything else even the most discerning gourmet cook will appreciate. The center island provides casual seating. The mudroom offers a full-size washer and dryer, a full upright freezer, and a large open pantry. The lower living area also has a full-size sofa and chair seating around a second river rock fireplace and a big screen satellite television with DVD/VCR. It hosts four private bedrooms including a kids "Camp Room" and one shared full bath. Two entryways provide access to covered patios. Take the log staircase to the upper level and you will find the master suite complete with a rustic aspen log frame king-size bed and two private decks with views that will take your breath away. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, double vanity, and a spacious walk-in closet that includes an extra sleeping area with futon, a ping pong table, or a secluded place to just be alone with your thoughts and relax. This property does not have a hot tub. Accommodations total two king-size beds, two queen-size beds, one full-size bed, 2 twin beds, 2 sets of bunk bed, and futon sleepers. Radiant in-floor heating is accented by oak hardwoods, carpet, slate, and saltillo tile. There are ceiling fans and portable fans in every room. This house was designed without central air, because of it's altitude! ***In conjunction with the Lodge for larger parties, the Guesthouse will sleep 4 comfortably. Situated as a studio apartment or 'mother-in-law' quarters above the 3 car garage, it offers the same stupendous views and peaceful settings as the Lodge, located approximately 60 yards directly north. The Guesthouse rents separately from the Lodge at $900 week or $130 per night plus tax/cleaning. It has a king and queen bed, sofa, tv, full kitchen, shower, washer/dryer. IF you do not need to rent the guesthouse based on a smaller group, we will not rent it to another family during your stay! It will just remain closed. No one will be on the property but your party during your stay. Located at 7487', the fully fenced 76 acres of ponderosa and juniper pine covered ground around the Lodge offer endless nature trail hiking, snowshoeing, snow sledding, mountain biking, picnicking, barbecuing, horseshoes, and a ski run in the winter months to keep busy during your stay. Complimentary wireless internet throughout the property. Because many people ask, we do NOT have a hot tub on the property. There are spas and a recreation center in town which have tubs and spa services. RINCON LODGE has something for everyone! With its spaciousness, unmatched beauty and peaceful surroundings, it is an ideal vacation spot for family and school reunions, or executive corporate retreats and even small weddings.

Durango Family-sized Log Cabin
We took a family vacation (11 adults and three children under the age of 3) to Durango and stayed at the Rincon Lodge--it was fabulous. The house has a great hilltop view and even better deck--we spent all of our mornings and evenings on the deck. We saw deer and turkeys. Each family had their own rooms, and there was plenty of room for us to spread out. We cooked all dinners at the house, and everyone was able to eat together at the dinner table. We also hiked the property. The house is 20 minutes from Durango, and 45 minutes to Purgatory, We took in all of the Durango activities, from rafting to fly fishing to ATV riding. I highly recommend this house for a large group.

5/5 Excellent

Vacationing in the wild
