Description of this Durango Vacation Rental Lodge
Rincon Lodge is located just east of historic Durango, Colorado where you can enjoy countless seasonal activities such as golfing, horseback riding, river rafting, shopping, dining, and world-class hunting & fishing. Also nearby are Mesa Verde National Park, the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad, two ski areas (Durango Mountain Resort and Wolf Creek Ski Area), and natural healing hot spring spas.
Built in 1995-1996, the lodge itself is a magnificent 6,500 square foot custom log home with expansive wrap-around decks offering views of the majestic La Plata Mountains, the Florida Mesa, and abundant wildlife. Open floor plans, cathedral ceilings, and soaring windows provide views of deer, elk, and wild turkey seen almost daily year-round. Inside the lodge, seven bedrooms will accommodate 20 guests with room for more upon request.
The main floor has two full-size sofas as well as additional seating for comfortable relaxation and is situated around a floor to ceiling woodburning river rock fireplace with satellite television and a DVD/VCR. Several entryways provide access to covered decks with panoramic views. Private bedrooms include shared full baths and another half bath with shower just around the corner. The dining area and kitchen on the main floor feature a teak dining table easily seating ten people with additional leafs for expansion. A massive elk antler chandelier adorns the area.
The custom kitchen and center island features solid granite countertops, a six burner gas range, double ovens, and everything else even the most discerning gourmet cook will appreciate. The center island provides casual seating. The mudroom offers a full-size washer and dryer, a full upright freezer, and a large open pantry.
The lower living area also has a full-size sofa and chair seating around a second river rock fireplace and satellite television with a DVD/VCR. It hosts four private bedrooms including a kids "dorm room" with a bassinet and one shared full bath. Two entryways provide access to covered patios.
Take the log staircase to the upper level and you will find the master suite complete with a rustic aspen log frame king-size bed and two private decks with views that will take your breath away. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, double vanity, and a spacious walk-in closet that includes an extra sleeping area with futon, a ping pong table, or a secluded place to just be alone with your thoughts and relax.
Accommodations total two king-size beds, two queen-size beds, one full-size bed, four twin beds, one bunk bed, and two futon sleepers. Radiant in-floor heating is accented by oak hardwoods, carpet, slate, and saltillo tile.
In conjunction with the Lodge for larger parties, the guesthouse will sleep 4 comfortably. Situated as a studio apartment or "mother-in-law" quarters above the 3 car garage, it offers the same stupendous views and peaceful settings as the Lodge, located approximately 60 yards directly north.
Located at 7487', the fully fenced 76 acres of ponderosa and juniper pine covered ground around the lodge offer endless nature trail hiking, snowshoeing, snow sledding, mountain biking, picnicking, barbecuing, horseshoes, and a ski run in the winter months to keep busy during your stay.
RINCON LODGE has something for everyone! With its spaciousness, unmatched beauty and peaceful surroundings, it is an ideal vacation spot for weddings, family and school reunions, or executive corporate retreats.
