Durango Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Come Relax in the coziness of our “Cowboy Comfortable Interior” with Gorgeous Mountain Views, just a 2 Minute Walk to the Lifts. Members hot tub, heated pool overlooking the slopes & Fitness Center use Included!

A stone wood-burning fireplace greets you as you enter our spacious open loft style mountain lodge. The magnificent views of the Needles Mountains, the quality western furnishings and the warm lodge style of our vacation home will make you feel like you have escaped to your own cowboy cabin with all the comforts of home!

Ski down to the bunny slope not more than 25 yards walk to the tunnel, or a 2 minute stroll to the main lifts. Enjoy fresh morning coffee or BBQing on your private Mountain View deck. From the living room, large glass doors gaze over the bunny slopes and the Columbine ski run and the glorious mountain views. The upstairs loft area shares these same views. Even the bathroom has a view of the slopes!

Enjoy the HEATED POOL, HOT TUB and FITNESS CENTER with your Durango Mountain Members Association (DMMA) Guest Membership which is included with your stay.

Our 'Cowboy Comfortable' condo is filled with beautiful woodwork and sleeps 6-7 guests. It is very comfortable for 4 adults and 3 children. Sleeping options include one private queen bedroom downstairs, 1 upstairs open loft with a queen bed and views of the Columbine slope and Needles Mountains, and a sleeper sofa in front of those gorgeous mountain views. We also have a full size futon perfect for cuddling in front of the fireplace. Our upstairs bathroom features a walk-in shower, double sink and views of the ski lifts and slopes. The downstairs bath has a bathtub/shower. Both bathrooms have been updated.

Enjoy rich slate flooring in the entry and kitchen. The stainless refrigerator has an icemaker and our cabinetry is solid wood. Ample spices and cooking tools are stocked in the open kitchen where family can gather round and swap slope stories!

The Village is just a minutes’ walk, and the lodge, Mountain View pool with slide, hot tub and well-equipped fitness center are seconds away. In summer, spring and fall the DMMA privileges also include use of the tennis courts across the road, by the lake.

There is wonderful hiking and fly fishing a few minutes’ drive up the resort road to Hermosa Creek, with horseback riding also available. In late October and November Elk Hunting is also popular on the mountain. We are a short and scenic 30 minute drive North of Historic Durango and the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Durango boasts 'Music in the Mountains held each summer at the resort: festivals in the fall, chili cook offs, art galleries, darling boutiques and ample restaurants. Thanks to Ft. Lewis College in Durango there is a strong theatre, visual arts and music scene as well. If you still have energy, try some mountain biking, river-rafting, and kayaking or always free, rock hopping!

Winding down, take a family drive to explore the old mining towns of Silverton and Ouray. The mountain drive is easy and goes past waterfalls and amazing red mountains affording endless opportunities for budding photographers and professionals alike! Regardless of age or activity, if you love the great outdoors you will love the Durango area and your stay at Durango Mountain Resort!

Guestbook comments from the owner
This was a wonderful condo, nicely appointed, very welcoming, and very accessible to lifts and mountain village. Jim loved that he had Direct TV "just like home" with record feature so we could follow our usual routine of taping Jay Leno and watching it over breakfast. I loved the availability of condiments, spices and basic cooking needs. I brought my own because I'm used to that, but it's a real plus to have them available and just replace what you use.All in all we give C24 an A+. We probably won't be back in Durango this winter/spring, but with the first snowfall next season we will look forward to checking in with you again. We will definitely recommend your rentals to our friends, as well.

Back in the 70's we (Stephen & Toni) shared Durango family fun and the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad with our son and his Grandma Margaret. Little did we imagine our son his wife would 're-discover' Durango and bring it back into our lives. We loved their East Rim Condo and fly-fishing on the mountain so much, we decided to get our own! We are excited to create new family memories with our 3 daughters & son, their wonderful spouses and our 8 beloved Grandchildren. We also look forward to our Guests enjoying the ambiance of mountain home that we are blessed to have. We fell in love with the interior charm right away (we've always dreamed of a log cabin)and the location makes it easy to play.

Steve & Toni Qualls purchased this condo in 2010

Too many things we love about Durango to fit into a little paragraph! Just to name a few: Ample places to explore for Fly fishing (how much gear do you have Steve???), wonderful walks along Hermosa Creek, the refreshing mountain air with morning coffee, superb selection of restaurants, BBQing on the mountain view patio, Great selection of Churches and downtown activities, the old cowboy mining towns of Silverton and Ouray (is that more than a few?)

We are so wonderfully close to the slopes, lodge and village. Down our steps, and a few meters across the brave can ski right down to the bunny slope and transit lift area. 'Rule-followers' Ha Ha, have just a 2 minute walk right to the main lift area. We joined the DMMA, and pay an additional 8% that we include in our rates so our guests can also share in the enjoyment of the outdoor pool (heated in cool months, hot tub, well-equipped fitness center, tennis courts and valet ski check & Spa (the last two are optional and do have additional fees for us as well, however the DMMA key you receive at check-in gives you access to the areas).

Up to date condo with beautiful view and perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 days in this beautiful condo with all the ammenities. Perfect location for all the fun activities on the mountain. We had access to pool, hot tub and work out facilities. The grill was a great for our evening meals. We white water rafted with Mild to Wild, rode horses with Rapp Coral, visited Mesa Verde, drove up to Silverton(amazing drive), purchased the adventure ticket on the mountain and had a great time visiting with new friends. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Sandi, thank you very much. Wow, you packet a lot of fun into your trip. We think that the area is the best place on earth which is why we love being there too. It sounds like you managed to do a lot, but you missed the fly fishing for trout. We will do that for you when we are there in September. :)

Come back anytime. We are truly a year-around destination.

All of the Comforts of Home!

My mother and I stayed here for a week in early June. We couldn't have asked for anything more. It was great having our own bedrooms and bath. The beds were extremely comfortable with super soft sheets. Everything you need for the kitchen is there, from a toaster to a blender to saran wrap. The condo was spotless. It's a little far from the town of Durango but we couldn't get enough of the views so we didn't mind going back and forth. We also visited Mesa Verde and Ouray (Million Dollar Highway). Neither should be missed. The resort was great but we were so busy running around, we didn't have any time for the pool or other activities at the Resort. The condo has WiFi and Satellite TV. Thank you Steve and Toni for making us feel right at home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great comments. We are pleased that you had a good time and enjoyed all of the mountain surroundings. We have been coming to Durango and the Western Rockies since the 1980's and we have hardly scratched the surface of the things to do.
We may try the "Rent-A-Jeep" trail ride next time we are there but not in place of the fly fishing.

We hope you are able to come our way again.

Second time around even better!

  • 5 of 5
We love this slope side condo! We stayed here in the fall once and now during ski season. It was really clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. I love the paintings on the wall! :> The views were amazing on the balcony overlooking Durango Mountain Resort. The gym, pool and shopping were right across the street. They do allow dogs and our goldendoodle had a blast playing in the snow. The beds were very comfortable and the contemporary cowboy theme made it really cozy w a rustic but updated decor. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make our own meals. The linens were very high quality and the place looks like a photo from a magazine. Steve and Toni were a delight to work with. They suggested local restaurants and things to do in town or up at the resort. Thanks Steve and Toni for an awesome vacation place!

very comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely comfortable condo up slope of the beginner lifts and at the base of the intermediate/advanced lifts. Both are easily accessible. We also paid a resort fee and really enjoyed the use of the spa at the neighbouring Purgatory resort. We came early in the season (4 dec) and were very lucky to have heaps of snow for skiing. It is worth noting though that while the ski season opens at this time, the lifts aren't necessarily open. This was not made clear on the durango resort website, and when we got there we were told that they don't usually open lifts until the following weekend. This would have been a BIG disappointment, so beware of this if booking any place. As it was, they only opened the higher lifts, making it a bit tricky for some of our beginner family members, but thanks to plenty of powder and good weather everyone was able to have a great time on the available runs. Anyway, if you want a very comfortable and stylish condo in a fantastic location this is for you. The owners were very helpful with any questions as well so we felt well looked after.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post this review. We are glad that you had a nice time while you were here.

Wow!, we are shocked that the ski lifts were not opened. We called the Resort a few days before opening (and after the massive snow storm) and were assured that the Resort would be opening as scheduled. We assumed that being open meant that the lifts would also be open. We now know that being open doesn't really mean being open. We won't make that mistake again. Hopefully you were able to get in enough skiing anyway. Steve & Toni
