Can you say “WOW!?” This is the home we rented for our Durango vacation. Pictures surely won’t do it justice — as it was incredible! It’s a 6000 sq. ft. home that had a great layout for the 15 of us (yes … 15 people. 8 adults and 7 kids).
The home (called Stone Creek) is located on a county road about 20 minutes north of downtown Durango. There is a small stream in the front of the home (along with a pond) and a river in the back yard.
We found the home on vrbo (vacationrentalsbyowner.com). It’s a great website that we’ve used many times to find vacation rentals.
This is the entry to the home. The rooms were large and had great spaces for a large group. When we first arrived, the kids ran through the entire house — screaming with excitement — as it was a very cool home for vacation.
This is the great room. All 15 of us were able to hang out here while playing games like CatchPhrase and HiYaa.
Off the great room, there is a media room (with surround). This is where the kids hung out in the mornings and evenings — watching movies and playing games.
And now for the yard …
This is the back yard, looking at the back of the house. There is a deck the follows the entire back half of the house … with a hot tub, a fireplace, a fire pit, a BBQ grill and large outdoor seating area.
One afternoon, we had a herd of elk come through the backyard. There were at least 24 elk … all staring at us as we took pictures from the deck.
Can you believe that we had a zip line in the side yard? Fun, fun, fun!!!!
And a trampoline, hammock, teepee and basketball court.
We could have “hung out” at the house — with plenty to do — our entire stay. But, we did venture out each day. Stay tuned for the “Best of Durango”.
A classic picture … the kids shoes in the entry hall!
