We were looking for a fall getaway to the mountains and some place that was laid back and private. The HD Ranch was all of those things and more. From the scenic drive to the ranch, to the breathtaking views of the fall foliage and the snow capped San Juan mountains, we were in heaven the minute we arrived. Then, we saw the guest house and it was absolutely perfect. Beautifully designed and had all the amenities you could have wanted in a guest house. I loved all the natural light, the porch, and everything felt so comfortable like we were in a home we would have dreamt about and wanted for ourselves. The owner, Francie, provided the perfect balance of being friendly and accommodating (she opened her 35 acre ranch up to us to roam around as we saw fit and were visited by her sweet sweet dogs, Blueberry and Pluto) and at the same time provided you with the privacy and seclusion that a retreat from the big city was calling us to. We did not mind the drive into Durango, mainly because it was so scenic, but also because staying on the ranch made you feel like you were a part of Durango life. If we would have stayed at a hotel, it would have felt like any other hotel, just a different backdrop outside its doors. We look forward to bringing our growing family back to the ranch one day soon!

Liked best: Felt like the perfect vacation home I would want to buy in the mountains!
Liked least: The well water smelled of sulfur. It was a little strong from my pregnant nose :)

Dear Erin and David, Thank you so much for the lovely review. Actually it is 128 acres for you to roam on. And I am so glad that you took the time to stroll and enjoy the views. I try and do that almost every evening with the hounds. Please come back with you newborn and the best of luck to you both. It was my pleasure to have you as guests on HD Ranch. farncie
