We love staying at this location. This is the second year we have stayed here and it is absolutely beautiful. The trees were turning and the mountains had just gotten snow on them and he view off the deck was gorgeous! The house is very spacious We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

This was our fourth stay at Spruce Mesa and for a reason! The pics cannot do the view or house justice. Clean, quiet and comfy. Come and see for yourselves!

This property is exactly like the pictures show. It is every bit as beautiful and more. The view is incredible. Keith was very helpful when I needed to reschedule because of the 416 wildfire in June.
The family enjoyed Mesa Verde, Rapp Corall horse riding, Tremble Springs swimming, Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, also the train’s museum, The Old Hundred Mine tour, and The Mayflower Gold Mill Tour.
I hope to be there next summer again.

I love this house and the view! We have stayed here several times and every time we leave we can't wait to come back!

We had a great experience all around. Kieth was extremely accommodating. The property was nice, secluded and had great views. We plan to return.

Our recent stay at the Electra Lake property was wonderful. We were all extremely pleased with how well the property is maintained and cleaned, nothing is left untouched. All the amenities, and more, described with this property were readily available. The mountaintop views from this extremely beautiful home are beyond description. Our family would all love to return again in the fall to enjoy another peaceful and pleasant experience. Thank you to both the owners and property management for making this our best vacation rental yet.

Great facility. Spacious, well-designed beautifully furnished. Just a great home. The views of Lake Electra are spectacular.
Sandra R. October 17, 2017
We had a wonderful stay. Keith was awesome and very accommodating. Will definitely return next year

While the entire property is outstanding, the view from the deck or from inside the glass lined wall overlooking Electra Lake is simply stunning! Well apportioned, roomy, quiet and clean as expected. But that view!

What a great place! The home exceeded expectations, the location was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The only slight aggravation I had with the entire experience was a lack of trash bags and toilet paper. When you pay a premium for a week you don't expect to be limited in trash bags so that you have to run to town to get them. Seems pretty petty and left a bad taste in my mouth. Aside from that, it was perfect. The location to Purgatory is ideal, we were able to get to Silverton quickly, Durango was a short 20 minute drive away. But the most impressive part of the stay were the views. I'll definitely be going back in the summer and am looking forward to fishing in the lake. I'll just be sure to pre purchase trash bags...

This was our second stay at Spruce Mesa and I assure you the experience doesn't wear off. House is impeccable - clean, roomy, secluded and quiet. And as posted in all the reviews there is not a better vista of the San Juan's than the one from the deck of this house!

A group of 8 friends came to stay a few days in February. Wow! We were thrilled with this lovely home and the amazing view. Everything was awesome and a few of us will hopefully be back to stay during the summer. First class all the way! Thanks again. The Texas gang

This home was perfect for our needs. It was clean and superbly decorated and had all the amenities anyone would need . The views were spectacular. Of the six of us, five fished and caught their limit of trophy-size fish from the lake. Four of us took motorcycle trips in the area. We all shopped and enjoyed the historic downtown Durango. The only problem was that one of our group could not handle the altitude and he couldn't stay. The elevation is about 8700 feet and that should be included in the information about the property. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our week. The fishermen in the group woul like to come back again for the fishing experience.

Great place with fantastic view s from every room. Will definitely do it again.
Robert B. August 13, 2015
The home has amazing views! It was very quiet and secluded. Plenty of space for our kids to play outside and inside. The house is nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location was great. Very close to Purgatory and only 20 mins from Durango.

This house was absolutely perfect for our extended family of 10. The house layout was wonderful. I couldn't believe that 10 of us (ranging from 2 years old to 62 years old) could stay inside comfortably and cohesively all enjoying separate living spaces- napping, cooking, dining, watching tv... The lake and mountain views were unreal. It snowed lightly almost every morning we were there. We were able to get the kids outside to go sledding almost every day. The trek in to Durango was a bit long, and the drive up to the house itself was quite treacherous with the snow and ice. However, they made that quite clear in the booking details so we felt properly prepared for this. The private nature of the home's location really helped facilitate the relaxing family time we were looking to have while we were there. In addition, the property manager was outstanding. He answered a plethora of questions that I had about the property within minutes and was extremely accessible the duration of our stay. If we ever take another family trip to Durango, we would not hesitate to return to this beautiful property!

House was beautiful and had everything we needed. View is amazing.

We brought our grown children and 4 grandchildren to this lovely house, and couldn't have been more pleased. The view was wonderful and the house worked very well for the 10 of us. The ride into Durango didn't seem as far as when we first arrived and we definitely felt the location was well worth it. We did horseback riding and a cave tour at the Rapp Corral, mountain biking at the Durango Resort, took a trip to Mesa Verde, and did the Alpine Loop in Silverton. So we found plenty to do within a convenient distance of this lovely home. Of course, you could easily just stay at the house and sit out on the deck and enjoy the view for a whole day. I would recommend some new pots and pans at the house. I realize people who rent aren't always careful with these items as I have found the same conditions in other locations. That is probably one of the hazards to be expected, but a periodic check and replacements would be good. I'd also supply more cooking utensils to use if buying non-stick pots. However, this would not stop me from highly recommending this property to anyone wanting to spend time in the mountains near Durango. We would definitely come back again.

The location is a bit inconvenient in being so far from Durango however the gorgeous home and spectacular view is a fair trade off. The pictures on the rental are well represented and it is beautiful. The view looking toward the lake and mountains are a balm to your spirit! I thought the property was mostly clean and well-maintained with a minor exception in the blinds, woodwork, bookshelves and furniture had not been dusted in some time. Other minor things were the skillets and pans in the kitchen were not very good and the knives were very dull. I would love to come again but I would want to come when the weather is cooler because there is no A/C and it was hot and some of the bedrooms didn't cool sufficiently at night. I would recommend this lovely place to others.
We enjoyed horseback riding at Rapp Corral, the Durango& Silverton Narrow Gauge Train, swimming at Trimble Springs, riding ATV's, and shopping.
It was a wonderful place to spend time with extended family.
Pattie R. August 8, 2016
View excellent, location excellent. House laid out well. Improvement would be a few updates. Particularly TVs and linenss even though we didn't watch TV much, TV in bedrooms did not have satellite - only kids videos.
Faleen F. May 24, 2016
The pictures of the house and lake do not do this property justice! Absolutely beautiful, quiet, and clean! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property and did not want to leave. This house is well equipped with what you need and you will not be disappointed in selecting this house for your vacation.
Ronda S. August 30, 2016
We absolutely loved our stay at Electra Lake. The view was breath taking. The place was so nice, we had everything we needed.The only thing negative was there were several spots on the carpet that I believe could be cleaned easily.
jonathan p. August 18, 2014
Lovely well equipped home with great deck area for viewing sunrises on Lake Electra. We were very pleased with this rental, it was not lacking in anything. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting a bit more seclusion from the main town of Durango.
Anthony Y. June 27, 2016
This was our best vacation ever. The house was beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable. The wood burning fire place really made our nights so wonderful! I can't wait to see this house again next year.

The views from this house were extraordinary!
Anonymous July 7, 2016
My son is leaving for his third deployment and we wanted a setting where my whole family could get together. The house was clean and welcoming. The minute we stepped inside we knew this was the right place. The views are outstanding. The house comfortably accommodated my three adult children and their spouses, along with four children (one seven and three under five). We enjoyed the breath taking view of the lake and the time spent on the lake. Perfect setting, exceeded our expectations.

Wonderful house, spectacular view, a great vacation for our family.

House was beautiful, perfect for a mountain getaway! Very well maintained and fully equipped for a family getaway! Don't ignore the 4 wheel drive requirement. You will not be able to get there without it.

There was not one thing wrong with this beautiful place , views were breathtaking ! Very spacious For my family ages 74 to 2 . The hike up and down to the water was a little rough on all of us . I would bring extra towels . Everyone of us we would love to go back!
Jenny B. June 2, 2016
The views, the seclusion, the comfort and the proximity all made this the ideal destination for our vacation wants and needs. My husband and I are from Indiana but love escaping to the mountains and prefer being near a body of water with all the inspiration of nature and wildlife that presented perfectly at this home on Electra Lake. We are steam buffs so the run from Durango to Silverton was a top priority. We also branched out to the Painted Desert and the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed off-roading in the San Juan mountains to ghost mines as well as La Plata Canyon. Future plans will likely include using this home as a launch to Sedona or Petrified Forest. We did not go to Mesa Verde on this trip but realized how convenient it would be to return there on a future visit. As a photography hobbiest there was no end to opportunity with show stopper pictures recorded all around us, not the least of which were snapped from the deck of the rental home! We have traveled around the world but this destination was hands down one of our favorite travel experiences. We were planning our return before we were even gone!

View was awesome and the cabin was very clean. Great place to stay look forward to getting back there.

Absolutely wonderful! Plenty of room and the view is spectacular! Words cannot describe. Our family truly enjoyed this property and would recommend to anyone traveling to or through Southwest Colorado.
