“Great Summer Retreat”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in July 2018

Summer is a great time to visit this rental. Luckily, the fires and smoke in the San Juan Forest did not seem to bother us or affect our trip. (Thank you, fire fighters!)

The Purgatory Ski Resort is right across the street and has tons of activities, shopping, and food. The Ski Lift view was amazing. We also visited Ouray for a wonderful 4th of July - pancake breakfast, 10K race, parade, music, etc. The Spud Lake Trail was a beautiful short hike up the road. We made a day trip to Durango, and another to Mesa Verde to see the Pueblo ruins. Tons to do in the area!

The rental was clean and looked like the pictures. Our only complaints would be the lime on all of the glasses/dishes. Instead of trying to clean them ourselves, we bought our own glassware and plates. The other is that there is no air-conditioning, so the windows must be opened at night, which would be fine. But the road right behind the rental makes it too noisy to sleep with the windows open. The DVD player wouldn't work either. Other than that, we enjoyed this location!

“Love the location of the condo.”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The living room window and deck looked directly across Hwy 550 to Durango Mountain Resort. We could see several ski lifts and easy slopes easily. We could walk across the road to this area or to catch the shuttle up to the resort headquarters and other activities. The shuttle runs about every 10 minutes. Four of the 7 people in our group enjoyed snow-boarding and/or or skiing. Two teenagers took snow-boarding lessons and the 6 year of took skiing lessons. Six of us took a great adventure in snow mobilling and went up to 11,000 feet. The guide was great and lots of information about the area. Another day we all went into Durango and took the Durango/Silverton train for an all day adventure up into the mountains.

The condo itself was lovely, very well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. There were 3 full bedroom and 2 1/2 baths. The master bedroom had its own sitting area and fireplace and bath with full Jacuzzi and separate walk-in shower. The second bedroom had a four poster bed and full bath right outside the door. The third bedroom had a full bed on bottom and topped with a single bunk bed. The half/bath was downstairs in the hallway coming from the front door to the kitchen. The kitchen was ample and had a large table that sat 8. The living room had a large sofa and two nice easy chairs and a large fireplace, plus large TV. All three bedrooms had TVs. There was a large deck off the living area with a table and chairs and gas BBQ. There is a one-car garage and room in the driveway for another vehicle. There is a combo washer/dryer in the hall upstairs. All bedroom are upstairs and the rest of the condo is downstairs. The area around the condo is lovely. I did a lot of walking in the snow and down the road to the lake which was completely frozen over.

We are thrilled that you all enjoyed your stay at the property, enabling you to enjoy walks, relax in front of the fireplace and soak in the views. The shuttle makes it a breeze to just focus on enjoying the skiing/snowboarding and the large dining table enables everyone to come together to share those experiences and memories of the day. How fantastic that you all shared the snowmobiling adventure together--now there's an experience and memory you will all share! Thank you for taking the time to post such a comprehensive review--you make me want to stay there right now! Reviews like this are so helpful to those looking for a great place to stay when in Durango.

It was truly our pleasure to serve you and we very much look forward to you returning for another stay!

Thank you,
