Things to know about your stay.

We are a working horse and cattle ranch, but our operations will not interfere with your stay. We also have a world class wedding and event venue on a five-acre lake close to the cabin. You have access to the outdoor areas on the property except when an event is in progress, which of course will not interfere with your use of the cabin, covered deck, and fenced yard. And, you'll always have access to the Animas River.

Our private trout pond is about 20 yards from your back deck. It is not fenced and you must keep close watch on children or those that cannot swim. Please do not reserve the property if you have safety concerns as it relates to the the access to the pond or the Animas River. The pond is filled by irrigation, which is shut off before Thanksgiving every year. This drains the pond through the winter months. The irrigation is turned back on in late April and takes a couple of days to refill. After it is refilled, it is restocked with fish.

The Durango- Silverton Train goes by the property daily (mid-morning, mid-afternoon and early evening).

This home is pet friendly! We allow a maximum of 2 dogs max and the pet fee is $40/day (for a max $250 per stay).

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.

Animas valley paradise

by Suzie K.

Beautiful setting outside of Durango

by Lisa L.
We loved the location and views from the deck. It was quick to get into town when we wanted to go in for dinner. The cabin was clean and had all the necessities. It was nice to find a place that was one level and had grounds you could easily walk around outside. We were traveling with my parents who both use canes and they loved walking down to the pond and sitting under the willow tree. Thank you for such a great stay!

Watch your step...

The cabin itself was great, we loved the cabin. The property outside was amazing and had a great time being outside and fishing. The only issue was the dog poop that was everywhere outside. Someone prior to us must have had a small dog or possibly the owners. There were hundreds of piles which it made it hard for us to allow my 2 year old grandson to explore like he would have liked to.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with Vacation Rental Collective. Sorry that the aerated lawn (not dog poop, lol) prevented your grandson from exploring. 🙂 It was a pleasure to host you and we hope you come stay with us again soon!

Awesome Property

by Rhonda B.
When we arrived the owner greeted us. Answered some questions that we had about the area. The cabin was clean and furnished well. The property itself is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed watching the ducks and geese in the pond. Several different variety of birds and the deer in the morning and evenings were also a treat. The large back porch with picnic tables and chairs for morning coffee and evening R&R was perfect.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with Vacation Rental Collective. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the property so much. We hope you come stay with us again soon!

River bend ranch excellent

by Bill H.
Location was awesome. Close to town but far enough away out that it gave us enough room for the kids to run and play. One stop shop. Killer views, stocked pond, paddle boats and wagon rides.

Unequaled

by Marco P.
More than we ever expected, huge property with lakes and trails for miles completely private. House fit to live in with all amenities including handmade soaps. The hosts were so gracious and fun that we had a barbecue together before we left. To summit up in one word, unequaled!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear your enjoyed your stay with Premier Vacation Rentals. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the property so much. We hope you come stay with us again soon!

Lovely Retreat

Very nice place which suited our get away from tbe heat, to fish, and to take the Durango-Silverton steam train. We enjoyed all three.
To get rid of the mouse in the cabin, bring in a good cat for a few days, which would be safer and way more successful than trap or spray.

Some shampoo and soap in the showers would have been nice. Books and vids were dusty, all else clean, and we didn't come for TV anyway! Outdoor microwave disappointing- inside would be better.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed this property and the Durango area 🙂 I do agree with your cat method! We do provide a starter supply of paper towels, tp, shampoo, soap, etc. so if those were missing, I apologize! Always feel free to call us and we are happy to bring some out to you. I will pass along your recommendation about the microwave as well. Overall, it was a pleasure to host you and your family! We hope you stay with Premier Vacation Rentals again soon!

Great vacation!

by Bobbie J F.
The cabin and grounds are great! Plenty of room to spread out, both in and outdoors. The views of the cliffs from the back patio were beautiful and made us want to stay outside the whole time. Great location- Durango was 5 minutes away and the hot springs, Silverton, horse corral, etc. was close the other direction. We highly recommend this rental!
Thank you for the review, Bobbie! It was a pleasure to host you. We are glad you enjoyed the home and beautiful Durango area. We hope you choose Premier Vacation Vacation Rentals again for your next visit 🙂
