5/5 Amazing place! We enjoyed our stay at this house. It is beautiful, clean and well laid out. It is very close to Purgatory (about 5-10 mins up the mountain) and a quick 25-30 min drive into Durango. You will definitely need an appropriate car to get in and out of neighborhood when there is snow. Road in is narrow at points, hilly and not paved. The house is in a beautiful location with lots of scenery and a great view out the living room window. It is a quiet neighborhood, which we appreciated. We had 8 people in our group and were very comfortable in this house. We would definitely stay at this house again. It would be a great place any time of year! 12/07/2019 at 9:01 PM
Review for Heavenly Daze Cabin-Cabin was awesome. Cozy, warm, had everything we needed. My kids enjoyed the games and playing outside in the snow as well. Everyone slept well and the beds were comfortable. I was very grateful for the washer and dryer. I think under furniture could use a good cleaning. When we were getting ready to check out and looking under everything, there was dust/debris from previous tenants. It almost looked like only the areas visible were cleaned well. The septic tank smelled quite a bit when we were out in the hot tub as well. I know it said in the information that could happen, but it seemed to be rather often (maybe needs pumped)? Ultimately, we had a great time and would recommend and would stay here again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
It was everything we had hoped it would be. It was very comfortable
and our Christmas will be one to remember for years. I would recommend this vacation home.
True Colorado getaway!-My husband, myself, and our two children (7&10) stayed at this amazing home for just under a week in early August! It is a beautiful, well-appointed home...off the beaten path. It's a good 30 minute drive from Durango, but right in the middle of Silverton and Durango which worked out well for our itinerary. The beds were very comfortable and the back porch view was amazing. My husband sat out with his guitar and we had coffee every morning. The trek to get to the property is not for the faint of heart, fortunately we had a jeep and we love off-roading! I am a runner and thoroughly enjoyed running the path down to the lake and back with all the wildlife and wildflowers along the way. It was just our family staying - so we wished the bunk-beds weren't in the master bedroom with the bathtub because it was difficult to arrange sleeping with our young kids wanting the same room we did...but I understand for larger groups the purpose! Eating dinner in Durango meant a long drive back, so one night we tried Sow's Ear just across the freeway and it definitely did not disappoint. We had a full trip planned, but when we do this again next year, we will buy groceries and take advantage of this beautiful cabin! The views from the breakfast table, to the fire pit on the deck, the hot tub under the stars...oh my, I want to go back NOW! This was our first visit to CO since we were kids, and having been on tons of beach vacations together, I have been converted to a mountain girl! We went jeeping on trails outside of Silverton, the Americana Basin is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. My dad passed away of cancer in April, and the purpose of our trip was to take his jeep to CO where he and mom loved so much! It was amazing. We also did the Cinnamon Pass (12,640ft elevation!) It was exhilarating! James Ranch is a working organic ranch with tours and food - this is a MUST do when they are open during season. White Water rafting was fun but we were told if you come earlier in the summer the rapids are more exciting, we still enjoyed the gorgeous views and time with our family!
Perfect Place to Enjoy the Mountains!-We loved our stay at the cabin. It is 20 miles outside of downtown Durango and at first I was concerned by the distance but once we arrived and I realized how quiet it was and that we were truly "in the mountains" I knew this was the perfect place for our family. We had 4 adults and 6 kids and there was the perfect amount of beds/rooms so that everyone felt like they had their own space. The deck is AMAZING as well as the furniture on the deck and the BBQ. The house itself it very well laid out and the owners have taken the time to supply the house with items we might want or need. We really enjoyed renting from the company the owners use (Durango Colorado Vacations) as their property managers. They were great to work with and we are excited to return to Durango.
Amazing cabin-This property was everything we hoped for and then some. The owners clearly take a lot of pride in making sure guests feel at home. Short of providing us with groceries, we did not need anything while at the cabin. It is nestled deep into the woods which our kids loved exploring, picking wildflowers and looking for little treasures when they weren't enjoying the hot tub! We were so happy to have found this property - it really made our Colorado vacation.
Comfortable and relaxing-This cabin was very nice inside and out. The heated tiles were amazing. The furnishings throughout the cabin were interesting, especially the pictures of the owners. We felt right at home. The fire pit was so nice and relaxing. Nice to have wifi while we stayed in the cabin. Loved this place will be sure to come back!
The days were definitely heavenly at heavenly daze!!!-Simply put it's an amazing cabin... The perfect retreat for a home away from home vacation, the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and the views were breathtaking! The owners truly do all they can to make this place perfection, be sure to look for hidden gems in the fireplace :)))
Wow - I want to go back now!-We had a great week. 3 days skiing at Purgatory and 1 day in Durango with bikes. The cabin was just as great as before, everything we needed and perfect setting for our Spring break. I hope you find everything in order when we left. We will book again next year if Heavenly Daze is still available.
Have a great summer!
Great cabin with all of the amenities-We stayed in the Durango area for a few ski days and a little R&R. I've been in and around the area for over 15 years. My family and I wanted to stay somewhere that felt like home. We wanted to go on a vacation and not feel like we had to do anything. This place has it all. Spacious, easy access to Purgatory, and a short drive into town.
My kids spent most of their time building a sled run near the cabin and swimming in the Jacuzzi. My wife and I were able to cook meals just like home in the kitchen, and we were able to take in a few football games and some movies. This place has everything you need to stay comfortable. Wifi worked flawlessly.
We plan on visiting again this winter and likely sometime in the summer.
A Truly relaxing mountain getaway-We stayed here for a ski vacation- 2 families and Grandma and Grandpa. It was very comfortable for the 12 of us. Well furnished, fully stocked kitchen, wonderful patio and hot tub. Definitely need 4 WD to get to it in the snow but we had no trouble with the 2 vehicles we drove from Texas. We will stay here again in the future if it is available.
Wonderful time in the mountains-Wow, what a wonderful experience!! My wife and I enjoyed our stay recently in Durango, Co. at the mountain cabin near Purgatory Ski Resort. We shared the cabin with three other couples and felt very comfortable. The hot tub and the fire pit were very enjoyable and fun. The views were spectacular!! We highly recommend this special cabin in the mountains.
Wow - This is the place to stay!-Wow! This past summer we spent a week at this cabin - rented through Durango Colorado Vacations. Remotely situated up on a mountain in the middle of a forest, yet only a couple of miles from the entrance to Durango Mountain Resort (DMR). The home was in immaculate condition and had plenty of room for our party of 8. The cabin was made up as though part of a 5 star hotel. The owners thought of everything - even games for the kids and hiking sticks. The cabin was beautifully decorated and very well appointed. The huge deck (with hot tub and fire pit) is where we relaxed every evening. On the deck after dark be sure to turn out all the lights in the cabin so you can then see all of the shooting stars and galaxies that come out to play - what a show and an education for the kids. There are plenty of chairs on the deck so its also a great place for coffee during the cool mornings. Being so close to DMR its easy to take the kids over there for all of the summertime activities offered. We had the most fun on the easily accessible and beautiful drive up to Silverton. There are so many additional hiking opportunities along the way as well as pristine alpine lakes to kayak and fish - an outdoorsman's paradise all around the area. It would also be a perfect location for skiing at DMR and we want to get back there in the winter. I must also mention the staff at Durango Colorado Vacations. They provide concierge level service - not only answering questions but also able to make great recommendations for restaurants and activities. I am astounded at the care taken and know that service of this level is rare. We would definitely rent this cabin again and would heartily recommend the folks at Durango Colorado Vacations.
Our-We highly recommend this rental property for those who want to "Get Away" from the hustle and bustle; at least for a few days. The house lived up to my expectations. It was "in the forest" and away from all the noise of the town. It was truly a tranquil home; along with all the things necessary for comfort. Durango was even more than I expected. There are WAY TOO many things to do in one week. We had to keep reminding ourselves, "we came to relax." and not get too involved in too many activities The complete staff at Durango Vacations needs to be congratulated for such a perfect job of helping us find our rental, walking us through the process, addressing our needs, and their outstanding commitment to making sure everything was exactly perfect. We WILL BE BACK!!!!
