Durango Estate Rental Photos and Description

'Optional Guest House' 5 minutes to Durango! 15 minutes to DMR

You'll be Living the Dream! Beautiful Executive Estate home 1 Mile north of Durango! This is not a typical rental, but "Our Personal Home" which We love to share with others when we are not there. It has that feel of warmth and charm plus the comfort of a 5 star hotel!

Breathtaking Animas Valley views from inside the home and its decks. Start your day with a steaming cup of brew overlooking the beauty of the valley. Since the home is just 5 minutes from downtown Durango, you can spend your days exploring Durango (take the Trolley into town, ride our bicycles); or hike our 42 wooded acres.

When evening comes, you can kick back on the expansive decks or in the hot tub, in awe of the breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of the Animas Valley, Red Cliffs and the Needles Mountains. Enjoy the romance of the steam train as it chugs by in the distance, with the mountains as your backdrop.

This amazing open floor plan is perfect for 8 people in the main house with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, and 3 fireplaces, and baseboard heating (five-zones so everyone is happy). Lets not forget the Hot Tub with incredible mountain views. The Master bedroom boast its own private deck and gas fireplace! Also the 2nd Master bedroom on the main level has its own fireplace, patio and private entrance! The furniture, and all furnishing in our home are new or less than 2 1/2 yrs old. There is a new full bath (12/13) on the main level and 1/2 bath that has just been remodeled.

There is an 'Optional' Guest House, with Queen Sleeper Sofa + 2 twin beds, (new 4/2014) Full Bath! See the rate chart for pricing.

We know you and your family/guests will enjoy the vaulted ceilings, wire brushed knotty pine doors, hardwood floors, complete sound system, temperature controlled wine cooler and all the amenities (even a high efficiency washer and dryer) . For our winter guests, our 2 car garage is heated, and there is also an RV Parking space complete with hookup.

Those 42 acres back up to 1275 acres of BLM land, and if you’re into rock climbing, they include elevation changes of 1,000 feet with sheer rock faces. If that isn’t enough, we’ve equipped our home with adult and children’s bicycles, and rafts. Bring your helmets and life jackets please (required!). You can also enjoy family game night with an Foosball table, Air Hockey table, Ping pong table, poker table top and many other games.

Be prepared to enjoy every aspect of Durango from this perfect location! .

About Dennis Dovey (owner operator)

My first trip to Durango was in 1994, and fell in love with it. I returned every year for a week, and in the summer of 2011 my family and I stayed for 3 weeks. I decided to purchase a home here in February 2012 . We wanted the views, the mountains, land to hike and explore on, and Durango's downtown spirit. Luckly we found it! Durango and our home provide all the things we love to do, in one beautiful area; hiking, skiing, fishing, mountain biking, white water rafting, soaring, great restaurants, children's activities, great music, and least we forget the Steam Train.

Outstanding Quality Throughout

  • 4 of 5

From the design lines of the 'great room' to the painted walls of the many rooms, to the most comfortable furniture ever enjoyed, and to the huge windows showing breathtaking views......our visit to the Estate Home in Durango was a total treat. Our teenage grandchildren used every amenity offered and were worn down by trip's end which is always indicative of what they thought about it. The Jacuzzi was unbelievably clean as was the house in general. We loved Durango and hope to make another trip there soon......hope Estate House will be available.

First time to Purgatory & Durango

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property! Our touch points with the home owner, Dennis, and onsite property manager, Tamara were very helpful. In all my years of renting through VRBO, I've never had an on site manager walk us through the property. We found the house to be equipped with everything we could possibly need. The beds were all very comfortable and the amenities were perfect! All of us loved the hot tub and looking out at the beautiful San Juan Mountains from the relaxing tub! Our kids loved playing foosball and air hockey. Dennis checked in with us during our stay... and also followed up for feedback after our stay. Again - that was a first for me through my experiences with VRBO. Dennis understands the value of providing a great experience to his guests and he made sure we had everything we needed for a successful stay. Purgatory was a wonderful surprise. We truly loved the small mountain feel Purgatory offers. They have the amenities of a bigger mountain... but unlike a bigger mountain - when you leave at the end of the day... you still have some $$ in your wallet! I can't wait to go back and hit Durango during Mountain Biking season!

Vacation Adventure in Durango

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation in Durango. This home is beautiful, comfortable and well equipped with all living essentials. Tamara, the property manager met us when we arrived and got us set up and familiar with the house. We especially loved the outdoor hot tub in the snow and being able to barbecue steaks on the porch watching the snow come down and looking out at the beautiful mountain scenery. The owner checked on us also to make sure everything was perfect. Durango has great skiing, beautiful national forest to snow mobile and fantastic restaurants. Our only regret is that WE don't own this home! For sure we will be back. Highly recommend this property.

Amazing Home close to town!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is an absolutely beautiful and spacious home. The pictures do not do justice on how beautiful the home and property is! Our family had 6 adults and 5 children that all stayed in this home and there was more than enough room. The property is less then 2 minutes from downtown Durango, but sits in the country enough to feel like you are miles away from others. If you choose this home for your family vacation you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Christmas vacation for our family! The house was plenty big enough for everyone to have their own room and bathroom. The house was beautifully decorated and everyone thought it was great. The hot tub was a big hit, too. Everyone enjoyed the various activities in and around Durango. We wanted snow and we got snow! We woke up New Years Day to falling snow and got about a foot just that day. That was an amazing sight and the views were spectacular too. We had so much fun snowmobiling, tubing and taking in the sights of downtown. The property manager, Tamera and the owner, Dennis were wonderful and were helpful with any needs or questions we had. I highly recommend this house.
