Many dream about staying in a cabin in the mountains. It doesn’t matter if you’re the type of person that could be completely self-sufficient living off the land for a winter season or if your idea of ‘roughing it’ is not having access to Wi-Fi and your cellular data plan all at the same time. The reality is, staying at a cabin is romantic. Not the love kind of romance (though it certainly doesn’t hurt there either), but the kind of romance that has you focusing on the very most important relationship you have: the one with yourself. Getting back to a simpler lifestyle is the perfect way to reconnect with yourself, which let’s be honest, is what most of us are trying to accomplish on our vacations anyway. Check out Vacation Durango’s selection of Durango area cabins in the mountains and start getting excited about your opportunity to start living the dream.
Ambiance is Everything
The ambiance in your living arrangements. The ambiance in your adventures. The ambiance in your everyday lifestyle. When you visit Durango and stay in one of our premier cabins, you can count on the ambiance of your entire vacation being on point. To start, the cozy vibes present throughout all of our cabins will have all of our guests feeling like they won the lottery when it comes to mountain getaways. Location is everything, and while some of our cabins have breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains or lakes, others are happily situated within the whispering pine trees, creating a feeling of total seclusion. Best of all, there’s no need to drive anywhere when you’re getting cabin fever because you can simply walk out your front door, take a deep breath of the fresh alpine air, and embark on a nature walk custom suited just for you.
Some of our vacation cabins in Durango Colorado are large, accommodating big groups like family gatherings, wedding parties, and sponsored retreats. Others are small, perfect for a getaway with your special someone or a base camp location for you and the kids. While the square footage may differ and the number of bedrooms vary depending on the cabin you choose, all of our guests can count on a full kitchen space. Take advantage of this space by purchasing your favorite pantry essentials and keeping everyone in your group fed and happy. This space is perfect for frying up some trout, or if the daily catch was unsuccessful, head to the local store and pick up some smoked fish and a bottle of wine instead.
While not standard with all of our Durango area cabins, there are lots of small touches that can make your whole experience. Fireplaces, hot tubs, and outdoor fire pits are just some of the bonus features that some of our cabins and VRBO rentals possess. Also be sure to check which cabins are pet-friendly, as our furry friends love staying in our vacation cabins in Durango Colorado just as much as our paying guests.
Mountain Living in Durango
Since you’re visiting one of the world’s favorite spots for outdoor recreation, spend some time considering what time of year you’ll be visiting and what you’d like to do while you’re here. Visiting in the warmer months of the year, you’ll have moderate temperatures and longer days to use to your advantage. Within the immediate surrounding area of Durango, there are over 300 miles of trails for people to access, so there will be no shortage of things to do. Bring your mountain bike or rent one from one of the local outfitters. With your prime cabin location, definitely be prepared for some epic hikes which change completely by the season. Will you be picking wildflowers or chasing yellow autumn leaves?
For some more structured summer activities, make a trip to Purgatory Resort for a turn on their famous alpine slide. Descending over half a mile down the side of a mountain on a slide is an experience everyone should have in their lives at least once! Guided fishing charters are available at the local lakes and reservoirs, or you could opt instead to take out a kayak or paddleboard on your own. For a faster pace and breathtaking views, booking a whitewater rafting adventure through the Animas River is always a favorite pastime for our guests. Another way to experience the backcountry is by horseback, where local ranches offer an opportunity ride through the high-desert terrain of the mountains, which will humble and amaze you all at once.
As the weather turns colder and the days get shorter, our cabin guests shift their focus to snow sports. Bring your own or rent them, but snowshoes and cross-country skis are always a favorite staple to have on hand at the cabin. Located 25 miles north of Durango, skiers and snowboarders love coasting down the powdery slopes of Purgatory Resort. Another memorable experience our guests love is a dogsled adventure with Durango Dog Ranch.
