Spectacular Ranch!
I rented this house for my siblings, kids and grandkids for our family reunion and celebration of life ceremony for my father's passing. And what was really great is that after being out in the mountains...to the top of Kennebec Pass etc., and hanging out at the park in town, that what we came home to Whitewater Ranch was just a as spectacular!!! A gorgeous huge green lawn running along the Animas River, where the kids and grownups alike ran and played ball and enjoyed the natural beauty of being right by the river. We were 13, 8 adults, 3 kids, a 4 year old and a toddler. There was space for everyone to be, play and hangout. The carpeted 'basement' area was home to 4 running, yelling, playing, kids...kicking balloons, playing ping pong and at night putting on a dance performance with flashlight strobes. The bedrooms were like having two houses and there was room for everyone to hang out and help make the meals in the kitchen/living area. We played basketball for hours, there was the hot tub under that unbelievable night sky; and the beautiful path leading down to the fire pit by the river where we made fire by rubbing sticks together!! The time at the fire pit with the river running by was the best! The kids grew up in Durango and now live in CA so it was it was especially fun for all of us to visit old friends and places and to have a few friends stop by. Everyone was able to relax and have a real reunion. We all loved it and would come back! the folks at Durango Vacations were easy to work with and always available if we had a question.

Fun Durango House!
The Animas River flows in the front yard and the backyard of this incredibly located home! Upon walking in this house we knew immediately that we would be comfortable here and we would enjoy ourselves. And we did! The owners have taken great care in providing a well-stocked kitchen, beautiful stainless steel appliances, several dining areas, a large BBQ in the back, and surround sound, too! After assessing the kitchen and living area we were lured out the back door to follow the path to the river where there is a fire pit encircled with Adirondack chairs. During our stay, we enjoyed this stunning river vignette nightly, while either smoking cigars (from a great smoke shop in town), cooking s'more, or sipping wine. We played several games of “horse “on the full basketball court, we savored picnics on the grass under some of the many shade trees, we “Jacuzzied” as we gazed at the constellation, and barbequed grass fed meat and accompanied with organic garden greens, and yummy cheeses from the nearby James Ranch…. The proprietors have furnished this spacious house with all of the creature comforts including a large and cozy master bedroom with a balcony and many windows….that we left open at night to be lulled to sleep by the river. It was just the 2 of us for a romantic get a way, we were sad to leave, and will forever cherish the memories we created here. We promised ourselves we would return soon to enjoy a bicycle ride on one of the many bikes, use the fishing poles to cast a line, and explore more of the fun of Downtown Durango! Our next visit, we will bring our family and friends to revel in this retreat! We highly recommend this for anyone who appreciates the great outdoors with the addition of the many comforts of home!

What a gorgeous house and awesome location in Durango!
We celebrated my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary with a trip to Durango. The house our large family stayed in was amazing and could not be more perfect! With so much space, an additional Queen size bed instead of one of the twins would have been the only thing we would ask for! The kids enjoyed the bunk beds and the basketball court.

Great Time at Whitewater Ranch
We found Whitewater Ranch to be the perfect property for this family of greenhorns who had always gone to the beach before! Beautiful property and great location for access to everything that is Southwest Colorado. Our son-in-law said it best, "Best vacation ever!"

Absolutely loved our stay. We would love to return to this property. I was just a little worried about the rushing water in the ditch in front of the house. I had small grandchildren and we had to be so very careful to keep the front door locked.

One of our best vacations
The house was perfect for us and the river out back was wonderful. This was our second year to stay in Durango and there was so much to do that we stayed busy every day.
