Note: 4WD/AWD is required in winter between December and late March.

There is a hot tub on the patio but it is NOT OPERATIONAL.

Mountain paradise at 7,000 feet of elevation. This is the quintessential mountain log home providing roomy comfort for many guests with six bedrooms, five baths, multiple decks and patios plus expansive views of surrounding woods and mountains just 7 minutes to Historic downtown Durango.

This home makes a splendid gathering place for families with two master suites, four additional bedrooms, a spacious, open living/dining/kitchen floor plan, den with pool table and media room, loft with additional TV spot, plus multiple patios and a huge main deck. 

Bed Configuration:
Master Bedroom - King (Upstairs) w/bath
2nd Master - King (Main Level) w/bath
3rd Bedroom - Double (Upstairs)
4th Bedroom - Double (Bottom Level)
5th Bedroom - Double (Bottom Level)
6th Bedroom - 2 Twins (Upstairs Level)

There is also a 7th sleeping space with a queen bed off the main living space that has a room divider screen vs a proper door (it is not advertised as a bedroom but certainly can be used as such).

The home itself is perched on a hilltop vantage point overlooking a large mountain meadow valley that is teaming with wildlife throughout all seasons.  It is common to see elk, deer, wild turkey, fox, many varieties of birds including hawks and eagles, and even the occasional black bear from the comfort of many outdoor and indoor vantage points.

Consistent with most Colorado mountain resorts, the home does not offer air-conditioning. Most homes are equipped with either a ceiling fan, box fan and at least one opening window to assist with climate control..

Book at least a week and a 10% discount is automatically applied (Excludes Christmas/New Years).

Stay with us and we offer DISCOUNTS on both summer (white water rafting, horseback riding etc.) and winter (ski/snowboard rentals, sleigh rides, snowmobile tours etc.) activities.

Cancellation Policy: A non-refundable payment of $300 is required at the time of booking. This $300 payment is applied toward the total amount due and is only refundable within 72 hours of the time of the booking is made. If your arrival date is within 30 days of booking, payment in full is required at the time of booking. Cancellations or changes to stay dates, including changes that result in a shortened stay, are not permitted within 30 days of arrival, and any such changes will result in a penalty. Cancellations or changes that are made within thirty (30) days of the arrival date, forfeit the entire reservation amount while cancellations made more than thirty (30) days in advance of your arrival only forfeit the $300 payment made at the time of booking. For reservations that are at least thirty (30) nights, the cancellation policy above increases to sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date. We do offer travel insurance.

Vacation Rental Collective has the perfect Durango Vacation Rental, Durango Cabin, Durango AirBnB, or Durango VRBO for you and your group! Whether you're hiking, fishing, biking, skiing at Purgatory Ski Resort, or enjoying Durango’s one-of-a-kind restaurants VRC has your perfect private lodging accommodations.

Please note that, like most properties in the area, this home does not have AC, as it is uncommon for homes at this elevation. Temperatures inside the property are easily managed by using fans and opening the windows at night when temperatures drop into the 40s.

Fall Get-a-way

Overall we had a good experience and enjoyed the quiet setting with clear skies at night for viewing stars. The home is well suited for good size families with an inviting main level and basement level for games, cooking and other family entertainment. We would return if the opportunity ever presents itself again.
Thank you for taking time to leave us a review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay here with Vacation Rental Collective! We hope to see you back again in the near future!

Durango house

by Janet K.
This large home off US160 in Durango was beautiful and spacious enough for our 11 family members to spread out and relax. The property has lots of trees and beautiful mountain views and is a convenient distance from town. Property manager was very responsive to our needs. We enjoyed our stay!

Family Get Away!

by Jessica V.
We absolutely loved our stay at Elk Mountain Retreat!! The cabin is beautiful and has a warm homey feeling. We had everything we needed and more! Our grandkids loved the space to explore inside and outside. It’s just far enough away from town to feel away from everyday life but close enough for exploring Durango! We can’t wait to go back! The property team was outstanding and so helpful! They made sure we were ok and the decks were clear of snow for us!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with Vacation Rental Collective. 🙂 It was a pleasure to host you and we hope you come stay with us again soon!

Big, Beautiful Log Home

by Alexa G.
This big, beautiful log home in the mountains was perfect for our family reunion of 12 people. The house was very clean with plenty of space for all of us to spread out. It looked exactly like the pictures. The kitchen was well-equipped with lots of dishes, pots & pans, cooking utensils, and appliances for cooking our Thanksgiving feast. When we ran out of firewood, the property management was very quick to respond and delivered more firewood promptly. The house had everything we needed for a wonderful family gathering. We were very comfortable and would definitely stay here again!

Spacious, peaceful, comfortable

The house was even bigger than we expected. We loved the location. We could take walks and ride bikes in the area. It was very quiet. The kids loved playing billiards. The decks and picnic tables were awesome. The beds were comfortable. Everything was clean. We wish the water was more drinkable. The shower pressure was low in the upstairs master. The lighting was poor throughout. The kitchen was well stocked but unorganized. We saw a few mice in the basement. Needed better instructions on using televisions. But our overall experience was very good. The property management company was very responsive. We would return.
