PRIVATE HOME LAKE PURGATORY-AWESOME VIEWS-LAST MINUTE SPECIALS

Cascade House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The city of Durango and Durango Mountain Resort in southwest Colorado is an area devoted to an active outdoor lifestyle. Nestled in the San Juan National Forest, this western town is where the high desert meets the high alpine.

Blackjack Lodge sits atop sloping cliffs overlooking Lake Purgatory, with sweeping views of the Hermosa Cliffs, Spud, Engineer and Needles Mountains from its large picture windows. Surrounded by groves of pine and aspen trees, it affords complete privacy, though conveniently located just one mile south of Durango Mountain Resort.

The large, open-plan family room has stunning views, a massive wood burning, sandstone fireplace and state-of-the-art entertainment complete with Sony 51' Surround Sound TV, DVD/CD, VCR and Stereo. A second family room (or the 'Bear Den') with 2-Twin Trundle Bed, TV, DVD, a regulation-size billiard table and also a ping-pong table is located in the basement, adjacent to the fourth bedroom which is outfitted with two sets of bunk beds and the location makes it an ideal room for the kids.

A wonderful bonus after a day of outdoor activities is the Hot Springs Spa 6 person hot tub on the covered deck. Luxuriate in its soothing warmth while taking in the stunning lake and mountain views and cool, clean mountain air. At night, the stars seem almost touchable.

Our home is that wonderful combination of rusticity and luxury. The bedrooms are comfortable and private and the family areas are well appointed with fine leather couches. Ceiling fans in every room and radiant-heated floors make it comfortable throughout the year. Our location offers you a choice between the dozens of activities available in the area, or complete seclusion - whichever kind of vacation you seek.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This house is amazing. I enjoyed all the luxuries as well as the proximity to the mountain.



We made a cool "jump off the hill in the backyard" game. It was awesome!

Commercial Real Estate Broker in the Dallas Ft Worth and North Texas area representing national developers and tenants looking for new development and new business locations. Love all outdoor recreation, especially in Southwest Colorado.

McGregor Converse purchased this house in 2003

The Durango area and the San Juan National Forest are one of the most beautiful places on earth. The affordable price of real estate and potential for appreciation help in the realization of a life long dream.

You will bask in the peacefulness and luxury of seclusion at The Blackjack Lodge. The amenities are wonderful to enjoy at your home away from home. The views are amazing of the surrounding mountains and you feel like you could almost touch the stars at night!

The home is everything it states the photos are accurate . The home was perfect for the eleven of us .The basment with all it had kept the childern occupied . The home was clean and well maintained . We spent the day at he ski resort with all it actives it had for the summer . A afternoon on the lake fishing and canoeing . And there is other state lake down the road we fish at .The only thing we found hard to do was the walk to the lake . Spent our evening in the hut tube .We would recommend this property to friend and family . The owner was very help even calling us when we arrived to see if everything was clean and good to go . We hope to be back .

Durango Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our mini-vacation at your lovely home. The kids were well entertained with daily hikes to the lake and cave, as well as the abundant activities within the home. We enjoyed day trips to: Durango, Four Corners, Mesa Verde, and took the Silverton-Durango train one day. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and peaceful home! The scenery was amazing!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the Blackjack Lodge. The property was very well maintained and the scenery was fantastic! The location is very nice and secluded and we really enjoyed some peace and quiet away from the big city. We enjoyed a canoe ride across the lake and the hot tub was nice to sit in and relax. Would definitely go back!

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5
This house is prefect for a large group. Very spacious. Close to the ski resort, but do need 4 wheel drive. We had 10 people stay at the house and it never felt crowded. There were plenty of dishes and kitchen utensils and lots of seating. Tons of activities, whether it be reading by the fire, going in the hot tub, watching TV, playing games, ping pong, or playing pool. Owners were very accomodating. One of the nicest houses we ever rented. Would love to come back!

Great Christmas Week with family and friends

  • 4 of 5
This house was excellent for what we were looking for. You need four wheel drive to get there, but location is excellent. (Very close to DMR) House is in good condition with large comfortable living areas. Views are wonderful offf back of house. Great living area for our teenagers down stairs. Pool table and ping pong table provided many hours of entertainment. Great electronics in all living areas. Hot tub was very nice after a day of skiing. Good kitchen facilities. Large dining area. This house sleeps 10 easy. There are actually beds for 12. Property is better than pictures. Try the open face Meatloaf Sandwhich at Ken and Sues for lunch if you make it to Durango.

Very close to perfect

  • 5 of 5
Rent this home without any reservation at all. The photos actually don't do the place credit. Spacious, spotless, exremely well equipped kitchen, top notch linens, ceiling fans in every room, hot tub just fof the Master bedroom, killer views. The gas jets for starting the fire work perfectly and take the mess and stress out of getting a good fire going. Fair selection of DVDs, DirecTV, puzzles and a few games give you stuff to do on a stay in day. The downstairs toys are very high quality, the pool table as true as can be, a really nice ping pong table with plenty of paddles and lots of actual good balls. The in floor heating, if you haven't experienced before, is so awesome. Of the many homes we have rented this is probably overall the nicest, best equipped and comfortable. Literally at the ski resort if you are skiing, close to Ouray and Silverton, less than a half hour back to Durango for shopping and groceries. The walk down to the lake is a bit tough, NICE JOB building the path tho, owners, but worth it. Sit in a chair by the lake, light a camp fire and enjoy a beverage in total solitude. The storage cave down there is a treat. We could not have been more satisfied with a vacation home rental. 100% recommended, no complaints at all.
