Welcome to Heartwood!
Imagine a neighborhood with a deep sense of community nestled on 361 acres of pine forest, meadows and pastureland.
Imagine living near Durango in Southwest Colorado, where the sun shines more than 300 days each year and where the San Juan Mountains and red rock canyons of the Colorado Plateau are close enough for a day hike.
Heartwood Turns 20 in 2020
This year Heartwood is celebrating 20 years in the Bayfield / Durango / Four Corners area – as America's largest rural cohousing community (by acreage). After 20 years of living our dream of community life together, we have a lot to celebrate! With Covid-19, we're not sure when we'll be able to schedule our big celebration, but once we do, we'll post the info here.
Due to Covid-19, Heartwood is currently receiving visitors with health precautions in place. We are also holding limited outdoor community meals and social gatherings with physical distancing. All in all, it's actually a pretty lovely place to wait out a pandemic.
Please see our Plan a Visit page.
Heartwood goes Viral on TikTok
The niece of one of our members visited from NYC during Covid and entered this video in a TikTok video challenge. We had no idea she had done that until it went viral. Thanks Kayce for such a great little video.
