Three classy cabins await you amid the sun washed landscapes of Southwest Colorado. Sixty acres of fields, sun dappled ancient forests, streams, lush gardens; intimate shady groves and a lake filled with trout and bass. Fish or dream in boats, watch double rainbows or Colorado mountain sunsets when the mist hangs low on the surface of the water. Luxuriate in elegant comfort and gracious surroundings, accompanied by exquisite bouquets of flowers, organic spa bath products and, of course, homemade cherry/raspberry jam. Celebrate a family vacation, a private or corporate retreat with Tai Chi or Art. Hold a small intimate wedding, a romantic, economical elopement or a honeymoon. Secluded but not remote, we are located on the San Juan Skyway Loop. Guests take day trips to a variety of SW sites. 10 minutes from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park, 30 minutes from Durango/Silverton train, the Anasazi Heritage Museum and the Ute Mountain Tribal Park. The mystical vastness of Hovenweep, Canyonlands, Mounument Valley and Arches National Park are only 90 minutes away. Come for adventure of any kind in any season!

Durango Country Get-away

5 on August 05, 2014

If you truly want to have a country get-away place, this is it, and in a good way! You can really relax and unwind here. Our host Lee, made us feel very welcome. He gave us the grand tour, including the stocked refrigerator for breakfast, and then left us alone. We stayed in the Garden Cottage. It is a beautiful rustic fashioned cabin. We stayed here with another couple, and when we split the price, there is no place you will find a better value! We look forward to staying here again. We highly recommend it.

peace and solitude

Breakfast is not made for you, but wonderful supplies are left in your cabin. Unless you ask for any assistance, you are alone in a lovely cabin on the lake (Bungalow). The grounds are really lovely, with meandering gardens and canoes on the lake. The owners are very sweet and helpful.

Lake House getaway

We had the opportunity to stay at this lovely place for a couple of nights. It is such a charming place with gracious hosts/owners. Two nights was not enough! The Absolute Bakery and Olios restaurants are outstanding local dining options.

WillowTail Springs - a bit of Heaven!

4.6 on May 27, 2014

Not only is the location of Willowtail Springs in a private, quiet location, the cabins are also situated for privacy and solitude. We stayed in the Bungalow and were comfortable from the moment we walked in the door. Lee and Peggy were enjoyable, helpful and very respectful of their guests. The mornings and evenings were spent watching the wildlife over the pond and floating about in the canoe.

Sanctuary of Solitude

Dust storms, snow squalls and bluebird skies. The atmosphere is spectacular, best viewed from within this cozy shelter.

August in the Mountains

An excellent retreat; restful & scenic. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful gardens, the lake & mountain view from the bedroom & dining room, & the playful & chatty ducks. And there could not be warmer or more pleasant hosts than Peggy & Lee. We were discussing our next visit before we left.

Wonderful Time....

Perfect stay. Lovely pond with good fishing for the kids. Also lots of bird life. Cabin well appointed, private. (Garden Cottage) Hosts welcoming and helpful. Simple breakfast items provided, which suited us fine. Would definitely return!

Terrific place, private, quiet, beautiful, fun to hang out on the lake

5 on July 20, 2013

The place was private and beautiful. Two of the cabins overlooked the lake and coots. We took the canoe out and fished, and even caught fish (catch & release). Accommodations were very interesting with wonderful art of owner all about. Nice breakfast & snack items in the refrigerator, good coffee too.

The stay at Willow-tail Springs was great. Everything you need for a relaxing time is there. The rooms are clean and furnished well. The lake is stocked with lots of fish. Most of all Peggy and Lee go out of there way to make you feel at home.My only regret was having to go home. There are loads of wildlife to view right from the lakeside deck. The flower gardens are all over the many trails to stroll around the area.I recommend this as a great place to get away from the busy world and just relax.I will never forget the 2 weeks a willow tail.
