Welcome to Ariel's Nest! Relax to the roar of the beautiful Animas River right off the many decks of this fabulous 2 bedroom, 2 bath house. Soaring ceilings and expansive 2-story windows face the river where you’ll enjoy 1600 feet of your own private fishing, rafting or swimming paradise. This extraordinary 8-acre riverfront property is located just 3 miles from downtown Durango, yet you will feel like you’re truly on a country vacation, surrounded by huge trees, abundant wildlife, and spectacular mountains.
This fabulous house sleeps 6 to 8, with two master bedrooms, one down and one upstairs. Each bedroom sleeps two in grand comfort and features a seating area, its own full bath, and opens on to a furnished deck from where you can enjoy the river breezes and cool mountain air. There is a sleeper sofa in the large 2-story living area, and an additional sleeping nook for
guests or kids with a day bed and trundle.



Soak in the sun and the gorgous views
from the huge upper deck
overlooking the Animas River valley.

The fully furnished kitchen and dining area open to the wooded back yard and also look out onto the beautiful river. Ariel's Nest offers wonderful amenities including a laundry room with washer and dryer, big screen satellite TV, high speed internet, air conditioning and heat.


With so many windows,
you'll always feel close to nature.

This open, high-ceilinged aerie has been recently remodeled for the perfect vacation hideaway.
We promise you will want to come back again and again to enjoy the charms of living on the river in the woods while being so close to all the shopping, skiing and hiking the beautiful Durango area has to offer.
