This is a wonderful place. Quiet, calm, relaxing, comfortable. I can't say enough how beautiful the area is, the cabins and the scenery. The cabin was perfect, cozy and couldn't have been more comfortable. Very clean. Well stocked with thoughtful amenities - like homemade cookies upon our arrival. You need to put this wonderful place on your bucket list. It...

I've never done a TripAdvisor review, but this place is so special to me that I want to write something! In 2010, my husband and I discovered O-Bar-O cabins and immediately fell in love with everything about it. The cabin is decorated in such a fashion that I wished I could ditch the kids and live in it forever. The...

Hardly the Griswald's! I think you and the kids should ditch Texas and come stay here. We always enjoy having you here. Watching the kids grow up is a treat, as well. I do have to say the animals were in a bit of a funk after the kids left! Thanks for the review. We appreciate it! We can't wait...

My sister and I spent 3 nights in Riverview for my birthday. It was perfect! The cabins are an approx 15-20 minute drive from the heart of Durango. The cabin itself was wonderful - heaps of room for the 2 of us, with a large back deck with a bbq/griller. The hot tub was only 50 metres from our backdoor....

My husband and I stayed here last week in the Chipmunk Cabin. Our unit was part of a duplex in the cabin; there were about four or five cabins on the property. You can see the care and pride that was taken in the appointments in the cabin, from the lush linens, the toiletries, the beautiful cabin decorations the cozy...

I couldn't have said it better myself! We try to make sure you don't need anything and can simply enjoy the soothing sounds of the river. We want you to rest, relax and rejuvenate while you are at the O-Bar-O. Thanks for the review!

We had such a wonderful stay at O-Bar-O! Needed a respite, and this was the perfect place. Cabins right on the river...not crowded. Mike and Maria do a great job and are very welcoming. Short drive to Durango or Vallecito Reservoir. I've been coming to this area for 50 yrs...will plan to stay here again.

Thanks for the review! I told all the other guests to be quiet while you were here! No, not really. It is the river that makes us all calm and tranquil. We are glad you had a great time and look forward to seeing you next year.

O-Bar-O Cabins was not our first choice for a place to stay near Durango. Nor was it our second…nor even fifth! We had a set timeframe for our getaway and finding a cabin in nature was extremely difficult. I tried to make an online reservation with O-Bar-O and was asked to call since the cabin I wanted (the least expensive)...

Thank you for the review and for the suggestions. We appreciate them very much. We have looked into the lights on the sign. They currently work but are dim.

The best cabin rental ever, we have been traveling for over 50 years. Maria and Mike the owners do a 100 plus job, you don't want for anything, but if you do they will take care of it. The scenery is great, from the mountains to the small river and he trees. BUD CARTER, TEXAS

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rustic cabins under the clear Colorado sky. Deer and elk roaming through nearby alpine meadows. Tall pine trees stretching to the horizon. Cool mountain streams bubbling with trout. The O-BAR-O Cabins, situated on the Florida River, has all of this and more. Located just outside Durango, we're a stone's throw from the national forest, two large lakes, and horse trail rides. Plus we have the best trout fishing you'll find in these parts. ... more   less
