Dolores River rentals
What is it about the water that makes us feel relaxed and serene when just minutes ago we were a basket case of raw nerves? Scientists say that the sounds of rivers flowing can guide the neuronal waves of our brains, and whether or not that is true, we can’t stay away from the water! Our Dolores River rentals harness the tranquility of flowing water, offering spaces that will bring you peace as they comfort. Your living room back home probably always has noise and a television going, but here in Colorado, you may find yourself opening the windows, sinking in to the plush softness of our sofas, and losing yourself in the serenity of the moment. There will be televisions for your viewing pleasure, of course, but these quiet moments are something your soul needs, and as you switch from the sofa to the back deck, seeking a clear view of the river flowing by, you can bank the peace and tranquility, saving the memories to be withdrawn later as needed. At night, as you sleep with the windows cracked during your summer visit, (it may be too cold in the winter!) the sounds of the night will intertwine with the quiet noises of the Dolores, leading guests down the path to deep sleep and happy dreams.
The homes we offer on the Delores River will offer a vacation experience you will wish could go on forever. Dining rooms are where games will be played and meals will be devoured, kitchens are stocked with professional style appliances that will help provide the joy in cooking you have always heard people talk about, and spa-like baths will continue the tradition of spoiling our guests! Nighttime baths in deep soaking or jetted tubs will help sleep come easier as you sip your favorite beverage, read a few chapters of the new book you purchased for the trip, and let soft music flow around you, much like the river flows outside. Game rooms for playing, cozy bedrooms for sleeping, and of course the views that will soothe the soul—all of these wonderful amenities will transform the stress ridden, nail-biting version of yourself that arrived here a few days ago into a peaceful, quiet-loving traveler who may even decide to try a few yoga poses out on the deck!
Rising with the sun and heading down to river’s edge with pole in hand can be just one of many quiet adventures you can enjoy, or if fishing isn’t your thing, a hike along the shores while the kiddos wade in warmer months. And because every mom knows that “wading” is just a euphemism for falling in and getting soaked from head to toe, the laundry rooms back at the “homestead” will be put to good use! Somehow, it just won’t matter that your kiddos are grimy and damp when the Dolores River is flowing peacefully by, but we will keep that secret to ourselves!
Winter on the Delores River
You may be worried that your winter vacation to Telluride will limit your interaction with the river, but that is not the case. Bundle up for a hike through the snow, just making sure that the littles aren’t tempted to wade because temps will be low! Some parts of the river freeze during the coldest months, but mostly it continues to flow, bringing peace and contentment to all who view it. It’s even possible to fish in some portions of the river, assuming you can handle subzero temperatures for more than 15 minutes at a time! (We will be sitting by our fireplaces, rubbing our hands together for a little extra warmth while you are attempting to bring dinner home, of course!)
