The Cabin on the Lake


Offering the ultimate rustic getaway, this Durango, Colorado Cabin Rental is the only accommodation on Blue Lake.

Built from locally hewn ponderosa pine, the Cabin overlooks the trout-filled lake and has dramatic mountain views - especially from the wrap-around deck.  The Cabin on the Lake is one of our original buildings at Blue Lake Ranch.  Truly representing the life in Southwest that many envision...with a few wonderful upgrades!   This Cabin gives our guests the true Frontier experience from the luxury of the expansive open space to the beauty of the wildlife that daily surrounds the Cabin! Everything about the Cabin is reflective of the essence of Southern Colorado and the West!

Essentially built on two levels with an additional loft in the main unit which houses the Master Suite, this accommodation is perfect for groups and large families wanting to gather - but not be in each other's space. 

The lower level serves as almost its own accommodation with a private entrance and a studio-style room with two queen beds, a large library, and a full bath.  There is also a private outdoor sitting area on this lower level and easy access to the dock, trails, and the lake! 

Once you go up the staircase to the second level...you will enter the living room, which hosts a large stone wood burning fireplace. In traditional frontier style, you will enjoy handmade log furniture, leather sofas, and southwestern artifacts.  The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining area has a grand view of the lake and mountains.  On this level, there is a queen bedroom and full bath.  Wind your way up the spiral staircase to the loft and you will discover the master bedroom.  The perfect getaway in the middle of it all...this enclosed loft has a king bed, wood burning fireplace, and a bathroom with walk-in shower.

This quintessential Colorado cabin is comfortable for two to eight guests.
