Arrived at O-Bar-O and were treated by the hosts as if we were long lost friends. We stayed at the Riverside Cabin and were THRILLED to have the river a few feet from our back porch. The cabin was incredibly well decorated and furnished and they actually stock the river with trout for the fly fishermen who bring their fly fishing gear. My wife and I have stayed at dozens of first class inns and hotels in the past, but this is the first truly five star cabin we've ever found with a location that is also five star. If you are traveling to the Durango area - don't waste your money and vacation on a pedestrian hotel when this gem is just up the road.

If you want serenity, beauty and romance coupled with luxury at an affordable price - then DON'T MISS this incredible getaway location...

Excellent is an understatement in describing our rating of O-Bar-O cabins near Durango, Colorado. It was a five star experience, at the very least.

Along with a group of long term friends, my wife, adult son and I spent a week at O-Bar-O cabins just outside of Durango. Colorado. We found this to be a little slice of heaven seated on the banks of the Florida River Rapids where fly fishers patiently stood casting their tackle outside our back door. It was absolutely beautiful and reminded us in many ways of our visit to the Swiss Alps. Quiet, serene and peaceful and nestled among tall pines trees which scanned the horizon – no sounds other than the melodic murmur and roll of the river rapids where we sat had had our coffee each morning and spend many hours meditating, reading and just simply being.

Downstream one of our friends stood fly fishing while others went about their respective leisure-time choices. Our cabin was Ponderosa, a two bedroom cottage with a large deck at the rear and a small front porch. It was located on the very end in a relatively private section of the cabin groups – our preference. The cabin was completely equipped with everything we needed including the cooking utensils, towels, soap, wash clothes, dishes and wine glasses.

Equally as importantly, in our week long experience, our hosts Mike and Maria were absolutely wonderful! From the moment they met us they made us feel as if we were longtime friends who had known each other all our lives. They answered each and every one of our needs and even anticipated our wishes. No better host could we have found.

We left there with a sense of melancholy to be leaving such a serenely peaceful and tranquil environment where the air was fresh and the sounds of nature echoed through this alpine countryside.

We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: There were three of us - my wife and I and an adult son. Ponderosa was ideal for the three of us. It could easily accommodate four people very comfortably.

There were 17 of us in 6 cabins for our every two year reunion. We've been doing this since 2000 and have stayed at many great places. O-BAR-O is the best so far! Maria and Mike are super hosts and made our stay as good as it gets. Maria is adorable and willing to help out in any way she can. Mike seems to know everything about fishing and the Colorado mountains. Our cabin (Columbine) was perfect. It had everything we needed, and the bed was so comfortable. It has a great deck, a terrific view of the roaring river, and is peaceful at night for sleeping. We look forward to returning for another reunion.

There was nothing about our stay at O-Bar-O that wasn't just wonderful. We loved the cabin. The river, the peace and tranquility, what more could you ask for? Mike and Maria are great hosts. We wanted a place to relax and this was the best place for that. Durango is such a great town. We want to return in the fall. We can't imagine how beautiful that would be. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary here and maybe we will come for the 31, 32, 34..........

We just got back (ugh to the Texas HEAT!) from 4 wonderful nights in the Bluespruce Cabin at O-Bar-0. We chose it from Trip Advisor-- so believe the reviews! The 12 miles into town is the best drive in the area so don't let that be a deterrant. The cabin was top notch in all the details down to the linens and decor. We would love to go back and try it in the snow!
