Welcome to Heartwood!
Imagine a neighborhood with a deep sense of community nestled on 361 acres of pine, piñon and juniper forest, rolling hills, 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.
We've packed a lot of information into this website. Take a look around and virtually explore Heartwood. If you like what you see, click on the "GET IN TOUCH" link to receive information about Heartwood and to stay in touch.
Heartwood turns 20 in 2020!
In 2020, Heartwood celebrated its 20th year 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! But with Covid-19, we've decided to hold off on the party until next year. We'll be sure to let the world know when we'll be able to schedule our big celebration.
Consistent Colorado Covid-19 health rules and now that warm weather is back allowing for outdoor events, Heartwood has begun to relax our Covid restrictions. We are maintaining a very limited visitation policy, but we are now holding a weekly community meal on Wednesdays, a Friday Happy Hour, and Souper Sunday. We're slowly ramping back up to the normal community socializing that we love.
