Durango Premier Vacation Rentals saved our vacation!!  The day we were about to depart I was told by the original cabin we rented from chuck Muir in Vallecito Lake that it was double booked and we did not have a cabin. I messaged Durango Premier and they called me back within 10 minutes with an available cabin at a great rate. The location was perfect, cabin was beautiful with all new dishes, comfortable beds, and a gorgeous deck with a breath taking view! The cabin decor was also beautiful! We will be staying in this area from now on rather than Vallecito! Cabins are newer, right between silverton and Durango with many lakes surrounding us. Perfect spot!! Thank you Durango Premier!
