Large, Modern Mountain Cabin on 3 Forested Acres and Close to Town

We're renting our 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath furnished house in Durango Hills from:

- 9/3/18 to 6/16/19 (approximately 10 months)
- 8/14/19 to 6/16/20 (approximately 10 months)

Dates are somewhat flexible, but we are usually in the house for 8 weeks every summer, so so this works well for someone who only needs a 10-month lease or travels during the summer. We don't charge for rent or utilities during the 8 weeks of summer that we're in the house.

If you are a good fit and were interested in a full 1-year lease or 2-year lease, we could consider that as well.

If you have any questions after reading the details below, or if you would like to see the house, please contact us via email, call, or text. More pictures are available at: https://westslope.craigslist.org/apa/d/modern-mountain-home-3-br-25/6635307807.html

If you are interested in filling out an application after seeing the house, I will forward you the online application.

Please DO NOT disturb current occupants.
