Incredible Views from Mountain Log Cabin Near Electra Lake!
There are only a handful of vacation rental properties in the Durango area that have the exquisite views and location that this cozy log cabin offers. But don’t worry – it is easy to get to even in the winter!! As you drive to The Primrose Mountain Cabin, the peace of the aspen and spruce forest envelopes you. Don’t be surprised to see deer or elk on the way. When you step out of your car the jaw dropping views will entrance you. No matter the season the Primrose Mountain Cabin is the perfect place for your Durango vacation. The pristine beauty of this area, just 20 minutes north of Durango and 12 minutes south of the Durango Mountain Ski and Summer Resort, just seems to take you to another peaceful world. Here you will appreciate an area that has not been over developed and retains its rugged mountain beauty and historic western charm. The Primrose Mountain Cabin is an immaculate little piece of heaven with a large living and dining area off of which is the front deck and its breathtaking views. A perfect place for a barbecue or just to relax. A newly added sun-room provides a second area for family fun. (For example, it provides a second peaceful living area in case part of the family does not want to watch T.V. in living room.) In the winter you can catch the twinkling of the sun off the snowscapes out your large floor to ceiling windows or snuggle by the fire. You are in someplace special – away from the highrises and the crowds. You really get a feel for being in the Colorado mountains. The cabin sleeps 8 with a king bed in the loft bedroom. The second bedroom, with a queen bed, has its own sitting area, bathroom and deck (and of course the views). The third bedroom also offers a queen bed. There is also a double sofa bed in the main living room. Watching the big game or a movie is a treat with the 42’HD T.V with Blue Ray in the living room. Each bedroom has its own T.V. so everyone gets to watch what they want! There are cabins …but what makes this cabin very special are the two private decks that overlook the incredible valley below and facing 11,000 ft ‘Hermosa Cliffs’. (We call them cliffs, vistors call them mountains!) You are in the heart of the mountains but an easy 20 minute drive to downtown Durango. What location could be more perfect?? The easy hike to the beautiful Electra Lake makes this location even more perfect. You can enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, or dining on the lake in an historic sporting club built in 1929. Once you get to the lake, the views over the lake and mountains are breath taking! Haviland Lake is also a 5 minute drive. Wonderful fishing can be found here too. There are trails around and near the lake that will take you to some incredible scenery. Even our weather, with over 300 days of sunshine almost no humidity and powdery snow in winter is near perfect. If the kids want to swim or you would like to work out there is a fitness center with indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool and day spa just 4 minutes away at The Tamarron Resort. Or enjoy Trimble Hot Springs or The Durango Recreation Center for more swimming options. Just 12 minutes north is the Durango Mountain Resort (formerly Purgatory) where almost every winter sport and activity is available. In the summer it offers concerts, world class mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, jeeping, and more. Top rated golf courses are just minutes away. Twenty minutes south is the Western historic town of Durango with shops, restaurants, and home to the famous Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. You can enjoy white water rafting, rodeos, hot springs, and more. Mesa Verde, home of the ancient ‘Cliff Dweller American Indians’ is a short drive away. Since this cabin is at about 8400 feet it is often ten degrees cooler than downtown Durango and enjoys summer temperatures in the 70s and 80s and cool mountain night sleeping!
