We just returned from a 4 day stay at the Purgatory Lodge north of Durango. We had a large party of 14 and were easily able to accomodate them in 2 4 andb 3 bedroom condos. The condos were really spacious, modern, had nice kitchens and a large open area. Bedrooms were spacious, TV/flat screen was nice, good wifi access. Can't find anything bad at all to say and highly recommend it. The rooms and the lodge were really top notch
A couple side notes-- we didn't try Purgy's- the restaurant there, but my parents did and although the food was good- they found service quite slow the first time they ate there, but fine the second time they went there
Our kids loved the zipline/alpine slide setup located right at the resort-- it also had a bungee trampoline, climbing wall and a few other activities- you could get either a half day (we did) or full day pass to it
Only potential negative to Purgatory Lodge is it is not actually in Durango, but about 25 miles north of the city. There is a restaurant (Purgy's) on site, a deli which has some sundries, several restaurants nearby (I would definitely recommend the Sow's Ear), but for groceries and additional dining and other options you need to go into Durango 30 min south or Silverton 30 min north.
Overall- great experience
