CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19
At this point in time, Durango has several confirmed cases of COVID-19 and Colorado is literally shut down with a "Stay at Home" order. As such, we want to assure all of our prospective guests that we understand your potential concerns. Out of an abundance of caution, we will not be accepting any guests in March and April. Once Colorado starts opening back up, we want potential guests to understand that our guest suite is not like a hotel where you have many common areas (check in, breakfast seating, elevator buttons to push, etc.). Our guest suite has no common areas. You are completely separate from us and others (our home is located on a 3/4 acre lot). Additionally, our level of cleanliness will exceed any hotel. Our cleaners are the best (they wear masks, use disinfecting wipes, Lysol disinfecting spray, all linens are bleached, etc.), and we demand a superior attention to detail (door handles, light switches, remote controls, etc.). Furthermore, Durango's attractions are largely outside and away from crowds. Otherwise, should you have any symptoms present themselves, we would ask that you cancel your reservation asap and we will be happy to help you find a solution.
Guests also have access to ample outside space. Guests can enjoy their morning coffee, watch wildlife or gaze at the stars while sitting on a 175 sqft private patio. The guest suite patio has gorgeous views and features two Adirondack chairs, footrests and a table. The landscaping is natural - native grasses, pinion pine, juniper, mountain mahogany, elm, yucca, cacti, Russian sage, yarrow, etc.
Wifi is provided free of charge and features download speeds in excess of 100 Mbps and upload speeds in excess of 10 Mbps. You can easily work and stream content.
Private parking for one vehicle is provided on site. A second vehicle can be accommodated with on-street parking.

HEATING / COOLING

Guests can not control the thermostat, but the home, including the guest suite, is set to a comfortable temperature at all times. The guest suite is set to 71F when the AC is on and 69 when the heater is on. At the same time, we recognize that all people have different temperature preferences.
