The space

Vista La Plata is our family’s personal getaway. It’s where Ruth is writing and painting for her first book. With both shopping/dining and majestic Colorado mountains and rivers nearby in Durango, this 70 acre is a quiet refuge with all the comforts of home.

The house has both a large deck in front, and in back. The front deck has four rocking chairs for you to catch view of the stars at night. The back deck has two six-ft long picnic tables for sunset dinners in view of the mountains.

The entrance leads to the living area, kitchen, dining area, and guest room and guest bath on the main level. The guest bath on this level has a beautiful 5 ft. cast iron tub, promising the most relaxing soak with view of the La Plata mountains. The guest room offers a queen sized bed with down bedding. It opens through french doors onto the front porch, and feels both breezy and luxurious.

The upper level is a master loft with a king size bed, decked out with plush down bedding and pillows. An office space is ready for any writing or work while you’re away. The master loft also has its own bathroom with walk in shower and a gorgeous view of the mountains and valley below. Please be advised, there is no door to the lofted master, and is open by staircase to the main area below.

The lower level has it’s own small living area with fold out sofa, one bedroom with a set of bunkbeds, and a large bedroom with two brand new twin mattresses and down bedding. There is an extra cot, air mattress, and portable crib for additional guests. The laundry room and additional full bath with jetted tub are also on the lower level.

The home is toasty in the wintertime with heated concrete flooring and wood-burning stove.

There is a gas grill on the back porch for use, and the kitchen comes fully stocked with all the essentials, pots and pans, a large crock pot, dutch oven, and rice cooker.

There are trails throughout the property and you can often spot wildlife when hiking. And of course…don’t forget to gaze at the stars at night…there are more than you can count.

We absolutely loved staying at vista la plata! The views and cabin are incredible. Stylish but comfortable and homey decor greet you with an incredible porch and backyard view. The house itself has everything you need for your family and it is a quick and beautiful drive to downtown Durango. Ruth and Troy are super personable and were very quick to answer any questions we had! It's the perfect vacation getaway or staycation retreat! We loved it!!!

This house and property was really great! It was clean, set up really well, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals. The beds were all very comfortable. The view is incredible and our kids enjoyed exploring the property and playing around the house. They built forts and had such a blast. There is tons to do nearby and anytime I needed a suggestion Troy and Ruth responded very quickly. If you stay here be sure to spend a day at Mesa verde national park and tour the dwellings there. We will definitely be back!!

Awesome hosts! The house is fantastic! If you are looking for something rural but close to Durango, here it is. If you're looking for something quiet and peaceful, end your search and book this place. Definitely coming back!

Picturesque home and amazing views. We loved our stay at La Vista Plata so much and will be recommending to all of our family and friends planning to visit glorious Colorado. Ruth and Troy were very quick to answer all questions and even provide suggestions on what to do and where to go. The home was extremely comfortable and we immediately felt at home. We enjoyed time spent at Mesa Verde, Plata Canyon, Purgatory Ski resort, riding the train to Silverton and hanging out in Downtown Durango. Can't rate this vacation and accommodation highly enough!! Thank you Ruth and Troy!!

Our family enjoyed the space both inside and outside this perfectly designed house. The home is warm and cozy with the wood burning stove in the living room to relax with after a long day of hiking in the breathtaking mountainous outdoors just outside the back door. Not only did we sleep like babies in the spacious bedrooms but each couple had plenty of space to spread out, cook in the fully equipped kitchen or rock in a chair on the one of decks. The house is conveniently located for day trips to Mesa Verde, Durango, the Silverton train, or even a trip to Arches National Park. I highly recommend this location for any group or family who are looking to enjoy nature and unwind.

Ruth & Troy User ProfileRuth & Troy is a superhost.

He's a classical education advocate and avid outdoorsman. She's an artist, writer, and internet entrepreneur. He loves meaningful conversation and live concerts. She loves to cook with friends, and chat into the night by open fire. Together, we've traveled to China, Spain, India, Chile, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Canada, England, Scotland, and South Korea, but our greatest adventure is still the six sons we get to raise. We split our time between Colorado and New Mexico, and love meeting new friends along the way through the seasons of life.
