The shared bath (tub/shower) is between these rooms with a separate door from each bedroom. There are 2 Mexican style ceramic sinks and a tub/shower plus grab bars for the toilet. You'll love the feel of Santa Fe!

This cabin is so comfortable, you'll want to make this a destination instead of a brief stay! The living area has a comfortable Lazy-Boy sofa and rocking chair. Add to that the TV, and gas log fireplace and it's just as wonderful as home! It's easy to prepare meals for the whole family in this well equipped kitchen.

The dining room has great views of the La Plata Mountains above Durango, Colorado, with French doors leading to the deck and BBQ grill. Plan to watch a sunrise with early A.M. cup of coffee, or be amazed at the sunset colors on the La Plata after glow. The summertime awning provides shade from the morning sun, which is brilliant at 7000 ft. elevation.

The living room French doors are the main entry for Forest Edge, located on a deck separating the two units. Grab a chair. Put up your feet and unwind.
