Forest Edge Guest House
The Forest Edge living area
Welcome to the Forest Edge Guest House. It 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, recliner and rocking chair. Add to that the TV, and gas log fireplace and it's just as wonderful as home! Built on one floor, the cabin has handicap accessible features -- all doors are 3 ft wide, no halls, extra convenient bathrooms.
It's easy to prepare meals for the whole family in this well equipped kitchen (electric range/oven, microwave, coffee maker, full size refrigerator, pantry). All the pots/pans and dishes are already here for your convenience. 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 French doors are the main entry for Forest Edge, located on a deck separating the Pinion and Aspen. Grab a chair. Put up your feet and unwind.
The family dog may come along, too, with prior okay at time of reservation.
Ask about summer weekly rates for Forest Edge. Winter weekly only $1600.
Pinion is a two bedroom suite with a King in one room and two Queens in the other (sleeps 6). The shared bath 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. (Self-cater $250 for 1 - 6 this winter, extra person $10 in summer)
Add Aspen and you have 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths to complete Forest Edge.
Spend time relaxing, and you'll understand how the majesty of Colorado ended up in John Denver 's music. "Rocky Mountain High" is now our state song!
