Darling Log Cabin Near Electra Lake and Purgatory Ski Resort/Downtown Durango

Picture a cozy log cabin situated in the scenic San Juan Mountains and whether its summer or winter you have the perfect Colorado vacation site! It is a serene place where you are able to enjoy the amenities of Purgatory Ski and Summer Resort (Formerly Durango Mountain Resort ) and the historic town of Durango without the crowds and noise.

This is a real log cabin nestled in a beautiful heavily wooded area near two high mountain lakes but close to Durango (20 minute drive in the summer) and 12 minutes south of Purgatory Ski and Summer Resort (formerly Durango Mountain Resort). The cabin has three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with a twin bed and a set of bunk beds) with cozy down comforters and comfortable mattresses) plus two baths. The downstairs queen bedroom has a flat screen T.V. and views of the woods. (Watch for deer or elk!)
There is also a flat screen T.V. in the living room as well as an IPod/
IPhone dock for playing your own music. A portable DVD player is available for your favorite movies.  (We have a small library of DVD and books for your use.)
In summer we provide a canoe that you can take to nearby Electra Lake  (We have a carrier that will fit most vehicles and life jackets.)

Sit in front of the fire or soak on the deck in the hot tub under the stars.
Enjoy the mountain serenity while dining outside on the patio. A gas BBQ is available in summer to cook up all the fish you catch!!
A full kitchen and washer & dryer offer all the comforts of home. 

A short 7-12 minute drive takes you to the Purgatory (formerly Durango Mountain Resort), home to some of the best Nordic and Alpine skiing in the Rockies. After a exhilarating day skiing or boarding, enjoy a soak under the stars in the hot tub. Sip hot chocolate in front of the wood fire.  How about a romantic sleigh ride, snowmobiling, snowshoeing or simply reading in front of the fire. This winter wonderland is perfect for relaxing or enjoying winter sports. 

In summer, the area comes alive with scenic chair lift rides, alpine slides, music festivals, and world class mountain biking. Look out your front windows for a wooded aspen and pine view with a backdrop of mountains. This charming cabin is surrounded by hundreds of miles of scenic hiking and biking trails where wild flowers, waterfalls, and wildlife abound. A short hike or a 5 minute drive takes you to beautiful Electra Lake.  There is a small fee to access and/or fish the lake but no fishing license is required.  We love dining at the restaurant right on the lake in the summer.  The views of Engineer mountain are so beautiful and the peace and tranquility of this beautiful lake is like nothing in Durango.!

Perhaps you would enjoy white water rafting, world class fly fishing or golfing. Or take a ride on the famous Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad to an Old Mining Town. Visit Gold Mines… Ghost Towns… ‘Go Jeeping’ on Incredible Mountain Passes! Or just read a good book and enjoy the best of the Rocky Mountains.

Serenity and beauty surround you!
