O-Bar-O Cabins
Ranked #2 of 12 Durango B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We enjoyed our two night stay at the property - a lovely, well-maintained piece of heaven. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Everything you need is readily available if you decide to dine in - we did and enjoyed grilling outdoors while dining by the warm fireplace indoors. Its very quiet at night, a refreshing change from the busy downtown Durango area. Things are centrally located with the mountain close by for skiing, town a short drive away and snowshoe trails by Lemon Dam and Vallecito lake. We opted to stay in and just watch movies one night and they had a large selection to loan. The best part is how canine friendly they are, which meant a lot to us since our dog is part of the family. She really enjoyed the amenities as well, including the soft dog bed, treats and doggie run located on the property. We can't wait to visit during the summer months.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Birdsnest - the smaller cabin and to us it felt roomy enough for two plus our dog...

We loved our two nights at O Bar O - the owners have thought of everything in the decoration!
The bed was amazing - and we wish we could have stayed longer. The only suggestion was to have bins for recycling (as we did cook a few of our meals).

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are fairly equal.

It can only be described as magical. The scenery is Mother Nature at her finest. Our cabin named the "Birdsnest" was cosy, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We are from Australia and don't get to experience snow in such a capacity, which made our stay all the more special. After a stressful day of driving in the snow, we were greeted with freshly baked snickerdoodle cookies from Mike, and Maria's hospitality was second to none, especially when she had to help us push the car because we had gotten stuck in the snow, twice!

This gorgeous piece of land has so much to offer, and sitting in the hot tub listening to the sound of the running river and birds, surrounded by snow filled mountains was certainly a highlight, but I must say the stars of the show were Pea Kiity, Peanut (cats) and Cooper the dog.
O-Bar-O should be a must do on anyones holiday list, it really felt like a home away from home for us, and we truly hope to return some day.
Thank you Maria and Mike for sharing this beautiful part of the world with us.

We spent 4 nights in this cozy cabin. The purpose of our trip was to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. The "stock the fridge" package with steaks and all the trimmings (plus homemade brownies) was perfect for our anniversary dinner. We visited the town of Durango only one day because of rain and snow. But, we enjoyed the peaceful setting and warmth of the cabin and did not mind staying in. We were very impressed with the furnishings and decorator touches. Our Bernese Mountain Dog loved romping in the snow and we took several hikes around the property. On the morning we left we were surprised to find not only was the snow plowed in the parking lot and driveway, but our car was swept clean of snow. Being from Phoenix we do not own a snow scraper!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with dogs choose the "Creekside" cabin. It has a private fenced yard...

Maria was so pleasant and helpful at checkin/checkout. The cabins are very comfortable and well equipped. Having Peanut and Crouton greet guests is always a plus! (Well behaved cats). The river flowing behind cabins is so relaxing to sit on deck and let sounds wash away daily stressors!

Fantastic...Fun...Clean beyond belief...incredible Location. In the wilderness on a beautiful small river yet only 15 minutes from old town Durango with many great restaurants, shops & of course, the world famous Durango/Silverton Train Trip. Reluctant to say more. I know it's selfish & impossible but, we
would like to keep this beautiful place to ourselves. We have traveled & lived all over the world & this is an extraordinary peaceful & totally relaxing place to stay. BRAVO to the owners. We have already made reservations May. Thanks for wonderful time.

I don't think we could have found a better place to stay in Durango! It was the most beautiful setting by the river, and a cozy place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. We REALLY enjoyed the heated mattress pad on those cold nights. After hiking Mesa Verde, the hot tub was very nice. Mike and Maria were excellent hosts, We can hardly wait for our next visit to O-Bar-O.
