June vacation

The cabin was all that we expected. It had most everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The best part might have been the weather, 60s and 70s as opposed to 100+, but the cabin was a great place to come back to after a day of fishing, hiking, golf and visiting Durango. I would recommend staying here.

Polar express stay!

by David C.
We had 2 families stay at the house and there was the perfect amount of space. The kids loved all the toys and games they provide and the room they're in is right off the kitchen so they played while we cooked. And having 3 kings for the adults was perfect. We also really appreciated the fenced back yard for the pups. Would love to stay here again!

Perfect and Clean

The home was immaculate and in a very quiet setting. There was a small issue and question we had when we arrived, and the management took care of it immediately. Couldn’t be happier.

Amazing property

by Amanda B.
The place was easy to find located in gorgeous Bayfield, CO. It was everything you would expect, with nice touches (the dog run was amazing). While located in a gorgeous neighborhood the way the home is set up the feeling of privacy is undeniable.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad you and your guests enjoyed your stay with Vacation Rental Collective. We hope to host you again in the future!
