If seclusion, luxury, and Durango cabins are what you’re looking for, our River House is perfect for you. This cabin is the perfect Durango, Colorado lodging. One mile from the Main Inn, on 80 acres and the banks of the tranquil La Plata River, the River House has been completely renovated and now has two large king bedrooms, each with a private outside entrance, fireplace, luxury bath with walk-in shower and whirlpool tub. The great room has a fireplace, full kitchen, with a dining area and a reading alcove with a twin bed that can convert to a king bed. There is also a powder room and a washer and dryer. A patio with gas grill completes this stunning house on the river.

Unlike most hotels in Durango CO, Blue Lake Ranch offers a Southwestern-Style Buffet Breakfast. Enjoy the full Bed and Breakfast experience by staying at one of Blue Lake Ranch’s Durango cabins.
