The perfect location to enjoy every season!
O-Bar-O has been operating as a guest cabin getaway for over 50 years. (All the photos you see on the website are recent, within the last year or so!) Prior, this was the site of a Scout camp and before that…hippies! Now, O-Bar-O Cabins is one of the most sought out Cabin Vacations in Colorado and the premier cabin getaway in Durango for every season — Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall.
We are located about 12 miles outside of historic downtown Durango in Southwestern Colorado. Set along the edge of the Florida River (pronounced Floor-E-Dah) amongst the pine trees in an incredibly peaceful location sit our nine riverfront cabins. In the warmer months, we are close to everything this Coloardo Recreation area offers – from mountain biking and hiking, lake sports and river rafting, Mesa Verde National Park and the scenic Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Train, jeeping in the San Juan National Forest, golf and gold medal fly fishing, and so much more. In the winter, you can access back country ski, snowmobile, and snowshoe trails, alpine skiing at Purgatory and Wolf Creek Ski areas, enjoy a dog-sledding or sleigh ride adventure, ice skate at Durango’s Chapman Hill, or simply relax by a warm fire with a good book in hand. Spring brings wildflowers in abundance, and the golden aspen leaves create an Autumn you will always remember. Be sure to book enough nights with us! Most people wish they had booked one or two extra nights just to relax after all of the exploring!
Interesting artwork and animals all around!
As you walk our approximately 7 riverfront acres, you’ll find some interesting art and some interesting animals! Beautiful bells, song sculptures, an amazing wind harp, Flower of Life gong, riverside hammocks and adirondack chairs, a special swing gifted to Pearl from two of her dog friends, and of course our Colorado TeePee. Many are locally made or created by us! You’ll see horses, wild turkey, deer and elk, all sorts of birds, and lots of fish! If you’re lucky, you may even spot a moose or bear! In 2022 we added a new fantastic natural feature we call Pearl Island. Take a stroll around Pearl Island! If you are interested in the stories behind the O-Bar-O experience, please ask us!
