Nice quiet place good place to stop for a shorter stay as it lacked crucial amenities for 21st century lodging.

Response from Harris & Karen:
We are a rustic, country experience that is an electronic-free getaway for solitude, relaxation and re-connection with the family and friends, and offer a peaceful path around Song Spring Lake. Free 24/7 WIFI is available at the Bayfield Library and within city limits of Durango, Bayfield and Pagosa Springs, and some places between, as are the "21st century lodging amenities." Verizon provides a few bars and some texting capability at our location We offer the basics for a home-away-from-home rustic experience for those who desire to re-connect, enjoy peaceful solitude and a romantic setting. Please review amenities before booking. We request all our guests tell us immediately if there is anything at all we can control to help make their stay most enjoyable so we can take care of it immediately so we are worthy of earning a 5-star rating.

Cute and clean secluded place. Harris and Karen were great hosts and it’s an easy check in process. Be aware that there’s no WiFi and little cell phone reception but the area around is lovely. The highway runs right by the place so it’s easy to get places but can get a little lou…

Hosts are very friendly and offer a personal welcome. Bear Den 1 was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our time there, unplugged. Loved the cool of the morning and sitting on the porch drinking morning coffee.

We have made that abundantly clear in our listing that we are right off the road, easy to find and plan to stay open all year since US 160 is kept open by CDOT. We request our guests tell us about anything that we can control that would make their stay more enjoyable to tell us immediately and we will take care of it. We pride ourselves in responding quickly to ensure our guests have a most enjoyable stay and we are worthy of an overall 5-star rating.

Great spot. Really beautiful. Harris was waiting when we drove in and made sure we got settled and answered all our questions. We would stay here again.

Comfortable, quiet, beautiful setting. Durango a short drive away. Loved the swallows chattering and singing in the morning and evening.
Harris & Karen User Profile
Response from Harris & Karen:
Sarah arrived at a great time -- when the swallows returned. They are here by the hundreds eating lots of insects and building condos on the barn. They keep the insect population way down so we can sit outside in the morning and evening and enjoy watching them, the Red wing Blackbirds, Doves, a small shore bird (a Plover?), Kingfisher, Heron, Canada geese and their goslings, wild Mallards, and Mergansers. We have Steller Jays and Robins passing through. I believe we have grossbeaks when the Hawthorns are budding. It's fun seeing all the birds stopover and get a great meal free of toxic chemicals since we use no pesticides, herbicides or other toxic chemicals inside or outside. Thank you Sarah for noticing and appreciating the swallows.

We were on a road trip and stayed here and absolutely loved it. They have a pond/lake to hang out by and fish. Everything was so clean and the owners were very helpful and nice. They were waiting there right when we showed up. Definitely recommend staying at this place! It’s so r…

Response from Harris & Karen:
We are thrilled Paige and her friends enjoyed our getaway where there were no distractions, but lots of fun things to do We enjoy seeing them have a great time fishing on our small cold-water lake. We are glad they were refreshed and well-rested as they headed out on the rest of their road trip. This group of college students were lots of fun. We are excited these students enjoyed our getaway for rest and relaxation. They are welcome here anytime.
