Highly recommend this property for your Durango slope side vacation. The view from the balcony is beautiful and would be great to sit outside in the summer/ warmer months. It's right across from the main lodge. The property is excellently maintained and has all the basic necessities (kitchen supplies, high efficiency washer & dryer, dog necessities, bedding, towels etc). The property was clean and well maintained. Plus it has a luxury feel with the jet tub, nice bedding, the fireplace & a keurig coffee machine. Fire wood is just outside the door. We loved the fireplace and used it every night! I would/ will definitely stay at this property again!! The owners had the property decorate for the holidays (we were there just after New Years) and it looked beautiful. I loved that the decorations were still up for us and it really gave the property a warm, cozy feeling. The property allows dogs which was awesome for us and we were able to bring our 100 pound black lab Bear. That being said, we worked really hard to ensure our dog did not ruin it for other renters. So if you bring a dog, be sure to follow their pet policy, picking up after your pet, do not allow on furniture; treat it better than your own home!!! So fellow dog owners don't ruin it for everyone because we want to stay here again! Be sure to check out Steamworks Brewing Company (restaurant & bar, great food, acceptable for families as bar is separate area, great outdoor patio for summer) and Ska Brewing company (a quaint little trendy place, large night bar crowd, quiet during the day) if you love micro brews. For sushi, try East by Southwest Sushi, a little pricey but very good (is comparable to good sushi restaurants in large cities), large local support, make reservations or go early. Purgatory Kids ski camp and care is awesome! Our 3 year old loved taking a ski lesson. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property!
