“Unplug from the daily stress & recharge those batteries.....”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2015

That is exactly what we did when we stayed 2 weeks at the HD Ranch. After 4 1/2 years of nursing school, it was time to RELAX. This trip was my graduation gift & just what the doctor ordered. The guesthouse was amazing. Francie is a gracious hostess & her staff, Trevor, Courtney, & Jesus are top notch. Pictures truly do not do justice to how beautiful & peaceful this ranch is. Early morning visits from Pluto, Blueberry, Apple, & Gracie were an added bonus. (They also returned every evening again for a "cookie"). The ranch is only 20-30 minutes from Durango & 30-40 minutes from Mesa Verde. There beauty of the area at night is breathtaking. We look forward to many more trips to visit Francie & the Hounds. Thanks Francie for making your home available to us. See you again soon.

Response from the owner Dear Marta and Matt, It was a joy to have you stay at HD Ranch and thank you so very much! It was fun to chat and I love the pictures! Yes the hounds only wished there was more than one treat twice a day! I look forward to seeing you both and again congratulations on your wonderful accomplishment. Best, Francie

“Perfect place to relax and enjoy SW Colorado”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2013

We spent 4 nights at Francie's cabin as part of a 3 wk trip and really enjoyed our time there. The listing is 100% accurate and the photos don't do it justice. We enjoyed morning coffee on the porch, walking around the property to see birds/wildlife, and having Blueberry and Pluto visit us for their dog bones. We weren't sure our teen daughter would be keen on being so remote, but she loved her loft area and said she slept like a rock every night because it was so peaceful. Even though the cabin is peacefully located out on the ranch, you are only 10-15 minutes from Durango or Mesa Verde so it is a great location for sightseeing. At night we'd turn all the lights off in the cabin and enjoy the night sky while soaking in the hot tub. Francie is quick to reply to emails and set up the reservation which is amazing given that she runs the huge ranch as well. Her home is just a bit up the driveway from the cabin so she's close by if you need her, but she doesn't linger around (she's too busy!). This was one of our favorite places from our long road trip and we'd love to come back again some day!

“Outstanding Weekend!”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2013

My Fiance and I recently spent the weekend here and had such a great experience! The guesthouse was just as advertised.Very clean,quiet,a breath of fresh air!The price was definitely right and the private hot tub was an added bonus! Francie was there to greet us and made us feel right at home.The directions she gave were dead on,easy find. If you're looking for a nice place off the beaten path for a little R&R;,I highly recommend staying here.The town of Durango is a short 20 minute drive away if you are looking for some good food,fun,memories! We will be coming back!

Response from the owner Thank you Doug for such kind works and I too look forward to your return. Francie

“A Piece of Paradise”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2012

My husband and I stayed in the cabin last month and it was absolutely perfect. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The views are spectacular and we loved being greeted by the dogs. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing "home away from home". Easy drive into Durango-Can't wait to visit it again.

“Absolutely Beautiful !”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2012

My husband and I stayed in the beautiful newly renovated loft above the barn and we could not have been more satisfied. The 360 degree views from the loft let us watch horses grazing in the pastures and the sun setting over the surrounding mountain ranges. At night the quiet provided the peaceful relaxation we were looking for and magnificent star gazing, too. Each morning we were greeted not only by the sounds of grazing horses but also by the very friendly resident black and tan coon hounds. The pictures do not do the four room loft or the surrounding property justice as both are more beautiful then we could have imagined. The loft is well appointed, spacious, clean and stocked with every necessity and the owner was more than gracious in answering questions. The ranch, located about 25 minutes from downtown Durango, is the perfect spot to wind down after a day of hiking, biking, fishing or shopping. We strongly recommend the HD ranch and we are already making plans to return next summer!

This place is great! We love Durango and have gone there to ski and spend a week in the summer but usually stay at a hotel. This past summer we stayed at Francie's horse ranch and loved every minute of it. The cottage is so cute and cozy. Francie's horses are gorgeous. Her garden is full of fresh lettuce which we were lucky enough to be welcomed to pick and eat each night. We got in hottub each night and that was great because it is on the deck and the sunset over the ranch is unbeliveable. We are going again for our ski week. We booked with Francie as soon as we left in July. You won't regret staying there. It is our new favorite place!!

“Perfect Vacation Getaway”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2011

My husband and I visited for the last three years because this place is really ideal for a quiet, peaceful getaway. It was a short drive to hiking or downtown, and felt like our secret vacation spot. We came for our anniversary, but it would also be perfect for a girl's weekend or artist/writer's vacation. The guest house offers a retreat which feels just far enough away from everything to be relaxing, while still offering the security of having others on the property. The accommodations are clean, with everything provided, and comfortable as well. The guest house was large enough to feel open and roomy, but also small enough to feel cozy and warm. The landscape is some of the best in Durango, and we could watch the sunset from the porch, soak in the hot tub, or eat out on the patio. There was always someone nearby if we needed them to offer assistance or answer questions, the horses were beautiful to watch, and the dogs were visitors we looked forward to every year. If you go, say hello to Lucy and Pancake for us!

While off the beaten path, a visit worth making. The scenery was truly beautiful-the horses didn't hurt!! Such a peaceful property, a wonderful way to get away. We were lucky enough to have some snow, just when we thought it couldn't be any prettier. Our visit was too short...

“A conveniently located, relaxing, scenic, mountain getaway”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2011

This was one of the most enjoyable vacations we have ever taken. The log cabin is beautiful, spacious, authentic, and set among the majestic Colorado mountains. It is located a short distance from the main residence, but offers complete privacy. The beautiful horses and coon dogs add to the country atmosphere. Francie, the owner, takes great pride in her home and her animals. She was personable and informative about our planned activities. Besides all of the above, it is priced right! We will definitely go back!

“Wonderful Colorado Vacation”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2011

The accommodations and people at HD Ranch made us feel right at home. Close enough to local attractions but far enough away to enjoy the beautiful, peaceful surroundings. The guest house had everything we need to have a comfortable stay with an pleasant atmosphere. A great place to take your kids, they loved the horse riding lessons and playing with the dogs.
