Cozy Log Cabin Home Near Ski Resort
Just 20 minutes from the historic western town of Durango, The Mackey Log Cabin is the perfect place to enjoy southwest Colorado. This real log cabin sits on an acre of woods and backs up to 15 acres of woods. You can hike to the beautiful high mountain Electra Lake for trout fishing,canoeing or dining in the summer. A 12 minute drive takes you to the powdery slopes of Durango Mt Resort (Purgatory Ski Resort) . But the summer also offers fantastic outdoor opportunties to hike, bike, raft, jeep etc . There are waterfalls, majestic mountain views, flowers as well as shops/restaurants . The log cabin feautes a cozy great room with wood burning stove. The stove has a glass front so you can enjoy the fire on a snowy night or even open it to roast marshmellows for the kids. Enjoy breakfast as you watch the sun come up over the 15 acres of woods from the back patio. Keep an eye out for deer elk! The hot tub has been moved to the back patio for even more privacy. Soaking under the stars (no street lights here!) is amazing. BBQing and dining on the patio is a treat. The front deck offers a wonderful place to sit and watch the sun go down behind the mountains. The upstairs master suite offers a queen bed and attached bath with shower. The window overlooks beautiful high country woods. The second bedroom on the main floor also has a queen bed and shares a bathroom (tub/shower combo) with the third bedroom. This third bedroom is great for the kids with a bunk and a single bed.) Downtown Durango is only an easy 20 minute drive and is one of the premier vacation destinations in Colorado. Home to The Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Durango is quaint historic mountain town that offers family fun in all seasons.
