Inside the lodge, seven bedrooms will accommodate up to 20 guests with room for more upon request.

In conjunction with the Lodge for larger parties, the Guesthouse will sleep 4 comfortably.

We celebrated my parent’s 50th anniversary and had 21 of our family members stay at the Rincon Lodge. The house had plenty of room to accommodate us all. The lodge had everything from toiletries, toys for the children, books to read, a tire swing, ping pong table for teenagers, outside patio, and so much more. When I asked my daughter what her favorite part of the trip was, she said the house, despite doing adventurous activities like river rafting and hiking. Kimberly was so easy to work with and always responded my questions in a timely manner. She kept us informed on the conditions due to the Colorado fire and was willing to work with us. We will forever cherish the beautiful memories during our stay here.
there was no screen door upstairs and it was rather warm for family sleeping up there. Also one of the fans downstairs didn’t work. Overall great accommodation and our family loved the house.
Had the pleasure of staying here with a group of 20 golfers and it was fantastic! Kim K. is a wonderful host and I would highly recommend this property! Incredible views and accommodations - The best of Durango!
My family and I just returned from a wonderful trip here. The home was absolutely perfect for all of us including my siblings and their families. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in, had all the utensils and cookware necessary as well as had spices and miscellaneous items. The bedrooms and beds were great! The land and home are absolutely stunning!! Firewood was available and we used it everyday. The heated floor was so nice to have! The home is not far from town and a beautiful drive. Kimberly was extremely responsive before and during our stay. We enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back. Extraordinary beautiful home nestled on top of mountain with incredible views from many rooms in the home.
Four couples with 8 kids invaded Ricon Ridge and had a great time. Very spacious, lots of stuff for kids. The master is amazing with beautiful views with a connected huge playroom for kids. The owner was most gracious throughout the process and solved a broken microwave on the spot. There was lots of staples available and even a six pack. We left some as well, so if you come after us enjoy some ice cream and frozen chicken on us.
Rincon Lodge was simply fantastic for our family reunion.
Very easy to work with and the Lodge looked exactly like the pictures. It was perfect for my family. Would definitely recommend .
The views from this property are unparalled. 8 adults and 7 children and there was plenty of room to get alone time when desired. The location makes getting to local attractions effortless. Durango, Vallecito Lake, Lemon Dam, Hayfield, Pagosa Springs, and even Purgatory Resort are all so close it made our stay adventure filled. The lodge had everything necessary to cook, play and relax. Amazing memories for our family. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!! We shall return!!!!
The accommodation’s were EXCELLENT and what a view from the property it was outstanding. Wonderful decor and sleeping and eating areas were the BEST! Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay!
We rented this Lodge for our Wedding Party to stay in and it housed us all (20) very comfortably. Great view and very well maintained. Highly Recommend.
