“It feels like Home away from Home!!!”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

We just returned from a week stay at the O bar O cabins with our 4 legged kids. What a time we had! Maria and Mike are both so helpful, and anything you ask for you get a "of course, no problem" response from both of them. We stayed in the Creekside and can't wait to go back to stay again. This cabin is perfect for 2, and their pooches. We were ablel to make a huge thanksgiving dinner in the ample size kitchen. We were never cold with the awesome thermostat controlled gas fireplace, and the bed was cozy and warm. In a lot of reviews it isn't mentioned that the cabin is stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and lotion.... and not some cheap stuff either! We were fortunate enough to get a little snow, and the views were breath taking! I would recommend place to anyone that wants to be out in the woods, but feel like you are living in luxury. Best kept secret out there!!! Thanks so much!!!

Room Tip: Creekside is great!!! Perfect for dogs... the only cabin that allows dogs that has it's own fenc...

Beyond the perfect place to stay! Just about 10 minutes from the heart of Durango, O Bar O is the perfect vacation spot. The "cabins" are nicer than some homes! I didn't want to leave. Mike and Maria go out of their way to make this the perfect escape. From the landscape to the decor inside the cabins, the well appointed kitchens and bathroom and even a cabin with a secure, fenced yard for our beagles that overlooks the Florida River. The jacuzzi felt fabulous after a long day walking all over Durango or hiking around Vallecito Lake. O Bar O cabins is and will always be our #1 destination when visting Durango..it's just gets better everytime we go! Love it!!

Ten minutes out of Durango, our cabin (Creekside) was a world away from the usual array of hotels and motels in Durango itself. Set by a river with a small private garden area (with Bar-B-Q) and various seats dotted along the waterfront it would be very difficult not to unwind from the travelling and sightseeing. Our cabin was extremely well appointed with a good sized bedroom/sitting area, large, very well equiped kitchen/diner and good sized bathroom. The sheets were the most luxurious we have ever slept in and the pillows the most comfortable. Mike and Maria were very welcoming hosts and with their relaxed friendliness we almost felt like we were staying with friends rather than people we had just met. A very relaxing stay.

This was our second trip to the Cabins. It is really hard to describe what a truly special place this is. Each year we allow ourselves time away from work and the hustle and bustle of the world. Again this year we choose Colorado and the OBARO Cabins. Mike and Maria have really made a difference in the property in all the changes they have and continue to make.
We appreciate their hard work and feel that this is a property to be proud of and respected by all who stay there. Needless to say, it is in a very convenient location for day trips to areas such as Durango, Mesa Verde, State Parks, lakes, etc. You can shop, site see, dine, fish, sleep in or just do nothing. We loved just being able to get up each day and change our plans if we wanted to. At night the stars are so big and bright you can almost touch them. Obviously we loved it. Again a very special thanks to Mike and Maria for their dedication and providing us with a great vacation retreat! Oh yes, and Mike -thanks for your patience in teaching me a bit about fly fishing.

There are no disappointments at the O-Bar-O! The cabins are quaint, comfy, and sparkling clean with 5 star décor.... exactly like the web pics depict. There is no detail spared for each pampered guest, even our beloved pups were treated to first class trappings. The scenery on the drive out to the cabins from Durango is so spectacular that you would think it would prepare you for the beauty of the grounds around the cabins. Imagine the most gorgeous mountain scene that you can, complete with a bubbling stream tumbling over rocks so rounded and smoothed that they appear to be created just for their beauty. Across the river is a towering bluff that soars almost as high as the eagles and everywhere are majestic spruce, ponderosa pine, and cottonwood trees that had changed to a sparkling yellow that shimmered in the sun. Sitting in the hot tub with the setting sun highlighting the river and sending beams through the trees was heaven! We spent four peaceful, romantic, idyllic days at the O-Bar-O and plan to return next year. Maria adds top notch service and even let our pups out for potty breaks when we were gone on all day excursions. This was a service that we appreciated so much! All in all, a perfect place for a true vacation... Bob, Sherri, Rusty, and Beau-Dog October 2011

This is a great place! The cabin was beautifully decorated, clean and well equipped. The owners were very pleasant and helpful in every way. The cabins are on a river, and there was fishing right out the back door. It was nice to just sit by the river with a good book as well as fish for trout. We plan on returning next year.

This is not your typical cabin. It's as good as everyone has said. The rooms are well appointed and comfort is everywhere. The beds are cozy with silky sheets and toasty comforters. The showers are upscale with big thick towels and impeccable clean. The kitchen has all the basics...just bring the food. After traveling across Colorado I was so happy to see the living room complete with a very comfortable sofa. Out the back door was our large deck that was particially covered. We used the gas grill everynight to cook supper as we watched the river roll by. Yes folks it really is just steps from your deck. The grounds are beautifull. Maria and Mike have thought of everything. There's a big pire fit at river's edge. Picnic tables, adirondack chairs, benches, walking paths even an enclosed play yard for your pet are provided. Inside there's current magazines, books on local wildflowers and birds, binoculars. There are 2 nice leather bound books one gives you all the information about your cabin & the grounds and another to leave your comments. Look for them they are jewels and please drop them a note about your stay there. They have been remodeled from head to toe and everything is new and spotlessly clean. Maria manned the phone for us during a family emergency. She and Mike even helped jump start our car the morning of our departure. We fell in love with this place and are making plans to have a family reunion there next summer. Do yourself a favor and make your reservations early.

TIP: kitchen basics are there for your use just bring all the food and drink you'll need (don"t forget the coffee) salt, pepper, coffee filters & paper towels are provided. The frig, range and microwave are new. There's an ice machine in the office.

Room Tip: We stayed in Hummingbird for 4 nights and loved it. After days of walking the grounds I would say a...
