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!

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!

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).

Just minutes from some of the best hiking and biking trails and the people there are so nice. We will definately be returning!

We absolutely loved our stay in the "cowboy cozy." The condo was in pristine condition and had all the comfort and amenities of home. It slept all 7 of our family members very comfortably. The views are amazing and there were so many unanticipated summer activities on the mountain to keep the whole family busy. We are already talking about when we will go back and definitely plan on staying in this condo again!

This condo was absolutely wonderful. The location and balcony view are outstanding. The kitchen is well stocked as are the linens. WiFi worked perfect. Very homey and comfortable. We also enjoyed the access to the Durango Mountain Club pool and amenities. We would definitely rent this unit again.

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.

After looking around for a nice place to stay around the Durango Mountain Resort, I ran across this property. The propery was very well kept, cozy, and the price was right. It is right across the street from the main lodge and slopes, which was incredibly convenient. Great deal, great property, great price if you want to stay at DMR. Thumbs up from the whole family. (Myself, wife, kids 11 and 7)
