EDELWEISS - READY FOR SUMMER OR 'ON' THE SKI SLOPE FOR WINTER

Durango Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to our 'Mountain Home' in one of Colorado's finest all season resorts and discover the magic at Durango Mountain Resort. Gather around our cozy fireplace while enjoying the beautiful views and begin making memories with your family and friends. Sit and relax in our condo while viewing many mountain activities, skiers going by outside and the high-speed 6 passenger chair lift going up the mountain.

Remodel just finished. All new kitchen cabinets, stainless steel applicances, granite counter tops, and professional decorated.

Winter Season: Our mountain home is not just a true 'Ski-In and Ski-Out' but we are directly on the ski slope (Lower Hades). Ours is one of only 12 Edelwiss condos directly on the ski slope. No hauling your equipment across the parking lots or in the elevators. The fluffy powder (260 foot annual average) is your invitation to the best skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. Then, at the end of the day, ski to your covered patio, step out of your gear, and step into your vacation hide-away.

The non-skier will have fun and excitement with snowmobile tours, dog sled rides, ice skating, sledding, riding the snow coaster (tubing), watch the downhill skiers and snowboards come down right outside your windows, and the incredible stargazing night tours. Of course, there is always great shopping, fine dining, art galleries, and the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Spring, Summer, and Fall: This is the time to explore deserted ghost towns, Mesa Verde Indian Ruins, enjoy Colorado's cascading waterfalls, wildflowers, and breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains. If golf is your game, it can only improve with the altitude (balls fly 14% farther) at the three championship courses in the area. The resort offers family ropes course, water runners, zipline, alpine slide, mountain bike trails and uplift, bungee trampoline, mechanical bull, climbing wall, miniature golf, and disc golf.

Our condo is perfect for your family vacation, reunion, or just fun with your group of friends. This spacious, four bedroom, three bath, luxury condo sleeps ten people comfortably, and has covered parking at your front door. Decorator furnished in natural Rocky Mountain style with art from local artists, and a warm relaxing wood burning fireplace (wood provided). Everyone is charmed by this tastefully decorated condo with a full-size kitchen, a romantic master suite, and all the comforts of home.

Whether you want to be in the heart of the action on the mountain, use our home for your base of operation to explore the Durango area, or if you just want to escape to the peace and quiet. Our mountain home is just the right place for your group.

My husband and I live in Florida. We are avid skier and scuba divers. We have one daughter who lives in NYC.

Leslie Hennig purchased this condo in 2004

We love Durango and the mountain of Purgatory. It is a home away from home with wonderful friendly people. The area has fun year round

We have fully upgraded our condo for everyone to enjoy.

'ON' the ski slope best location on the mountain for skiers and snow boarders.

The balance of the year you have a wonderful back yard to watch wildlife and enjoy the great outdoors.

Happy New Years Vacation for Our Family

  • Submitted: Jan 15, 2014

We take a family ski trip every New Years, and this year chose Durango Mountain Resort and this Edelweiss Condo and highly recommend it to others!

It was ideal place to serve as a home base for our skiers and snowboarders. Our teenage kids (and us adults) would ski out in the morning, come back for lunch, a snack or a break, then head back out till the lifts closed. SOOOO convenient!

We drove up from Phoenix and made such good travel time that we actually arrived early. The housekeeper was still cleaning so we waited till they were done but they finished before the official checkin time and allowed us in a bit early.

The condo was very clean and the kitchen and bathrooms were well appointed. The beds were comfortable (although the 3rd floor queen mattress probably needs replacing -- its pretty old). We had a large group so having 3 floors made it nice for us to spread out. Everything worked well -- all appliances, plumbing, tv, wifi, etc... That may sound silly, but we rent A LOT of vacation homes and you'd be surprised how many times there are problems. Not here! Everyone enjoyed the ski resort, the condo and had a fantastic time! It was also very fairly priced. Yes, there are more lux condos (we stayed at Elk Point a couple of years ago and it was much more expensive), but this was hands down the BEST value for a ski-in/ski-out place for a large group.

The owner, Leslie, was wonderful to deal with. Very helpful and responsive.

No complaints, only compliments and gratitude for sharing your home with us, Leslie. Our kids say this was our best ski vacation ever!

Additional Note: We went on a snowmobile adventure with ICE PIRATES and highly recommend them for anyone who wants to go off the beaten bath.

Owner's Response: It warms my heart to know that your family had such a great time on vacation at our condo. We work hard to make sure our place is clean,
updated, and totally equipped with everything vacationers need. New
condo updates are already scheduled for this year (new mattresses) and more so we hope you will come again and enjoy our home away from home.
Thank you,
Leslie

Just wonderful

My sons (3 adults) with their girfriends plus an extra buddy gathered this past weekend, and was delighted to have so many homey conveniences. The weather didn't cooperate, but we had plenty to do inside the condo while we were stuck inside. Once we got outside, we went separate ways to explore and all of us came back with the desire to come back there this winter to ski. It's located perfectly for easy lift access, come home for lunch, then ski out for the afternoon. The mountain bike trail out the back door is perfect. I loved everything about this place, and hope to come back soon.

Owner's Response: We are so glad the condo worked out for your sons and his friends so nicely. They were wonderful kids (young adults) who we would love to have back anytime.

Thank you for the 5 stars,
Leslie

Great Location/ great condo

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This condo was perfect for our two families and offered all the amenities of home. Nicely kept and very homey. It had ample dishes, silverware and glasses. My only complaint was there was only one smaller fry pan and they could use a bigger one. Tons of beautiful serving dishes and the grill helped make our meal complete.

Sleeping arrangements were great. The loft area had just the added space we needed so everyone could have a bed. I agree the upstairs bathroom was not as nice as the others, but it was totally fine for the kids which is who we slept upstairs.

We didn't spend a lot of time at the resort itself even though it had so many activities. Instead we headed to Ouray and enjoyed those activities--hot springs, Canyon Falls and Mine tour. Guess this means we will have to return again and experience all the resort has to offer.

This would be an ideal rental for skiing and we hope to make it back to slip our skis on and head to the mountain out the back door! The front door offered lots of space as well for leaving all those items that clutter up the house. Super great!

Owner's Response: We loved hearing from you and reading the excitement in your review. It pleases us to no end that everything worked out perfectly for you, your family, and friends. We will be immediately addressing upgrades to the condo as we do each year. We have purchased a griddle and several large fry pans. Thank you for taking your time to review our property. There are so many wonderful places to see and experiences in the Durango area that you must come back and stay.

Best vacation home ever!

This condo was everything they say. The pictures do not do it justice on the inside. You will love it. Lots of room and everyone has there own space. Very clean and comfy. So well stocked with everything we needed. We were so shocked it was so nice. The beds were comfy, we felt like we were home. So much to do here and the condo IS on the slops. Easy to find and the woods were so peaceful. Birds, chipmunks loved the bread. We are from Oklahoma where the weather here was 108. It was in the 50's here and 40's at nite in Aug. One thing "we hated to leave"!
