Overview

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, bath vanities, jetted tub, new mattessses, 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 (Yellow Brick Road - Beginer Slope). 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.

This is our 2nd stay at Edelweiss Condo (last time it was Unit #8). Doesn't get any better regarding ski in ski out! Condo is clean, spacious and comfy. We were 5 in total and were very comfortable and were able to rest well in the evenings. Will definitely return. Leslie has been amazing at working with us both times we have visited. Great place to stay!!

You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo without any prior knowledge of Durango, with the exception of some friend's recommendations. We wanted a getaway trip with a little snow, sledding and a little skiing. My wife and daughter don't ski much, but we had no problems finding plenty of fun things to do around the resort area and the town of Durango.

I have nothing but praise for this condo. I called ahead and talked to the owner prior to booking and she gave me the whole run down of the condo and the town. She went out of her way to give me an idea of what to expect. Upon arrival, we were very pleasantly surprised of the location! It is right on the mountain. The back porch steps put you right out on the ski slopes and right in the middle of prime sledding territory. And the condo even had sleds already there for us to use!

The condo itself had everything we could possibly need, and the layout was perfect. Plenty of common area to hang out with a big group, but the rooms were separated enough to give you some privacy if you go with another family or two.

It was very clean and comfortable and even had a wood burning fireplace for cozy evenings. Not to mention tons of already split firewood at your doorstep for just you! Just light and enjoy.

I would highly recommend this condo, and we will definitely be going back ASAP! This would even be a great location for the summer, which is what we're thinking of doing next!

P.S. If you go in town...You have to eat at "The Ore House". It is right in downtown Durango and worth every penny! The food was worth the 15 hour drive!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure communicating with you about your ski/sled vacation and helping with various aspects of the trip. It was a greater pleasure discovering that the condo and its perfect location of the right fit for your family and friends. I agree that the Ore House (about a 30 minute drive from the condo) is well worth the trip. I do hope you come back in the summer and enjoy the activities at the resort and also the wonderful mountains with hiking, rivers, waterfalls, ghost towns, etc to see and experience. Thank you for taking the time to write this fabulous review. Kind Regards, Leslie

BEST ON THE MOUNTAIN

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful condo for 10 days and can not wait to come back. The location is the best on the mountain. You ski right out your back door and back again (there is no better and the owner was right - what is ski-in/out about walking across a road or taking an elevator). The condo it self was amazing and had everything we needed to call this our home away from home. The kids had the loft to play and watch TV when they wanted to be away from the adults. The condo was so very clean, well decorated, and stocked with everything we needed and more. The beds with new mattresses were wonderful for a great nights slumber especially after an awesome soak in the jetted tub. The condo was everything that the web site says it is and the photos are exact which was a pleasant surprise. Leslie was very helpful and responsive to all our needs. Thank you for sharing your condo/home with our family. I know we will be back for skiing 2016 but I think we maybe even sooner. Tina

Owner's Response: We are taken back by this beautiful families review. We are also thrilled that our home was again perfect for their family gathering and ski vacation. Much of the time we spend in our home is to work on them in some capacity; so the joy of renting is in hearing that guest's vacation time was fulfilling. The mountain itself offers so much in the way of uplifting beauty and outdoor activities; but it feels good that our home comforts and decorating can be a special part of others happy family times! THANK YOU for the caring you showed us as well.

Happy New Years Vacation for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

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. All new Mattresses have arrived - Happy Sleeping!!! Thank you, Leslie

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

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.
