About the property

Townhome, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

WINTER SPECIAL!!! Stay 6 nights and get the 7th night FREE (applies to standard and value ski rates only)! You won't find a better rate in all of Durango for a home in this location and this size. You won't be disappointed!

LOCATION, COMFORT & STYLE! For the ultimate vacation experience, LOCATION MATTERS! While there are a number of new luxury homes on the mountain, most of these are condo-style where you enter an elevator to get to your property ~ well not at ours! Our luxury home is accessed right off the mountain from your own private deck!

WINTER SEASON HIGHLIGHTS = We are a 'true' ski in & ski out destination where you are actually on the ski run and slopeside to all the action! Our luxury home is located at the bottom of the Lower Hades & Pandemonium ski runs. If only the best will do, you've come to the right vacation destination! Our Elkpoint Townhome is one of only 7 luxury homes at Durango Mountain Resort (formerly known as Purgatory Ski Resort) where you can literally ski-in & ski-out off of your own deck! Just look at our PHOTOS! For non-skiers or those just taking a break, no location is better to be a part of and enjoy the action. Just sit back fireside and watch the skiers come down the mountain slopes through the breathtaking 18-foot vaulted floor-to-ceiling windows framed with warm timber accents! Have kids? We have our very own private 'backyard' just off the main room deck with your own snowy playground! See our photos! Our unique setting provides enjoyment where you can relax fireside or have a glass of wine on the deck and watch your kids safely play within your view. More hours of fun for them means more hours of fun for you! Come stay with us and you'll agree that our location and amenities are truly unbeatable!

SUMMER SEASON HIGHLIGHTS = Our home is just steps from the mountain village with gift shops, restaurants and the community pool, spa and fitness facility. Summer activities are plentiful with miniature golf, alpine slides, bungee jumping, kids bounce-house, scenic chairlift rides, mountain biking, horseback riding, etc. In July and August the resort hosts the annual Music in the Mountains Festival with an amazing variety of music from the best musicians in the world. The fun is unlimited and no location is better to be in the heart of the action!

Inside our nearly 3000 square foot Elkpoint tri-level home, no detail has been spared in our professionally decorated, upscale home. The 4 bedroom + huge bonus room & 4 bathroom layout is well designed with sleeping accommodations and bathrooms on each of the 3 levels.

The first level has a private oversized single-car garage with ski racks and sleds for our guests to use. In addition, there is a large bonus/game room with Queen bed and Queen sleeper sofa, TV, foosball and full bathroom ... This room is a perfect place for kids to hang out, play games and relax away from the parents!

The second level is the main living and dining area with plenty of room to eat, lounge fireside and watch the outdoor mountain activities through the 18-foot soaring windows. This area of the home is an entertainer's delight with an open floorplan that includes a full-size gourmet kitchen, dining table, comfy swivel rockers plus plenty of other seating. In addition, there are 2 bedrooms on this level (1 room with Cal King bed & private balcony and the other room with 2 Full beds) and another full bathroom.

On the third level you will find another full bathroom, bedroom (with bunkbed - Full on top/Queen on bottom) and the Master Suite. The Master Suite will welcome you to relax in the Cal King bed while watching TV or reading a book, while the bedside fireplace keeps you warm and toasty. Indulge yourself in the Master bathroom complete with spacious walk-in closet, 2 sinks and oversized jacuzzi tub!

PLEASE NOTE = We are a definite NO SMOKING and NO PETS home. This means anywhere on premises (no smoking & no pets either inside home/garage or outside porch/deck).

To sum up our home, a recent guest left us a note saying, 'This place is fabulous! We had so much fun and slept like babies. We can't think of a more lovely home that we have ever stayed at. What a gorgeous location - truly unbelievable! We can't wait to come back again next year!'.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions whatsoever. We hope you'll come stay with us and enjoy the finest that Durango Mountain has to offer. We're sure you'll agree that you've 'come home' to your first-class luxury retreat in the mountains!

About Tonya Murphy

My family and I have been going to Durango for nearly 20 years. We bought our first vacation home there in 2004 and couldn't be happier! We visit every chance we get and our children look forward to spending time there and making more wonderful family memories! It is truely one of the most lovely destinations in the world!

Tonya Murphy purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Tonya Murphy chose Southwestern Colorado

This home is our dream home! It is big and luxurious -- definitely a home away from home for us. It is without a doubt the best location on the mountain!

What makes this townhome unique

We are one of only 7 homes where you can literally ski in and ski out off our own private deck! The view is incredible -- it is so peaceful and so perfect. The amenities and location make it an unbeatable destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning Tonya,

We had a great time in your home. It was so awesome not to eat at Dante's (no offense) midway on the slope. It was more convenient to ski to our rental condo.

I invited my family as always to get away from the commercialize glamour of spending (Christmas). As usual they declined because of lame excuses. So like every year we try and invite a family that would not have the opportunity or could not incur the cost. And they mentioned that it was the most stress free ski trip that they have ever had in 20 years.

All of the kids enjoyed not having to drive to the slopes the stress of getting in line for lift tickets and everyone seemed to have peace. No one complained.

This was our routine:

I would wake up at 6 am start breakfast. We had 5 Adults and 6 Children.

Your kitchen was amazing it had everything we needed. I cooked Breakfast every morning Bacon, Waffles, Croissants, Fresh Fruit for the entire families and everyone was done by 7:45 am.

Take a coffee cup and add Bailey's walk to the Purgatory Lodge less than 1 minute we all had our lift ticket in hand at 8:00 am for the day.

Walk back to the Condo, take a nice hot shower, have one more Bailey's and coffee and head to the slope by 8:45 am.

Ski lift opens at 9:00 am and we loved having the first chair.

Ski till 12:30 everyone would meet at condo and have an awesome lunch. Ski till last chair.

Happy hour at Purg's and then walk to condo and start cooking for the evening.

We never had to go anywhere, other than we wanted to hit Steamworks and Anchor Man 2 in Durango.

We gave all the kids (6) the combo to the garage door and they loved the freedom of being able to come and go as they pleased.

I am waiting on a couple of snow storms in Feb, maybe we could rent one more time this year!

Best, Robert

Awesome Family Spring Break vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to book the Murphys' beautiful 3 story home for Spring Break in late March. We had 4 adults and 4 kids ages 7-11. The house is fantastic, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out, relax, and not be on top of each other. The views are breath taking. Gorgeous gas fire place in living room and master bedroom. The beds and bedding were very comfortable and soft. Kitchen is loaded out with everything you would need to cook with and serve your guest. House includes a washer and dryer. Plenty of closet/dresser space to store your gear out of the way. Great big garage to park your SUV/Car out of the weather. Garage has ski rack for 8 sets of skis and poles which made it nice to keep everyone's equip. separated. The house is situated in a perfect location for access to everything at base of moutain. The ski shop, ski school check in was just 100 yards away from back porch. The main 6 person chair lift is convienetly right out the back door. During our stay we got 10" of snow for a fantastic ski trip. Once the kids got the skiing down, we were able to all ski out, and ski back in to back porch...such a cool thing for the adults and kids. The owner was very gracious, and always there for any questions we had to help make our stay fantastic. I give this place a 10 out of 10 for location, ski access, and comfort. We plan to make Elk Point 12 lodge our yearly winter family vacation spot!

Another Great Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a AWESOME family Christmas vacation in Elkpoint 12. This is the 2nd time we have stayed in the unit. We had tons of fresh powder and the skiing was great. This is a perfect place to stay for a large group. Everything you need is there. There is a small grocery store within a couple of miles. Food on the mountain is wonderful. The house is big enough for people to spread out. You literally walk off the porch and ski down to the lift. You can easily stop for breaks or to eat. No one has to wait on others to hit the slopes. So convenient!! The owners are also great! Highly recommend this place for your vacation.

Love this townhouse. Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a summer week in Durango. It was ideal for two families (6 adults and 5 kids) plus a set of grandparents. The beds bedding are comfortable which is huge for me. The bedrooms were separated enough so everybody got some privacy. The location is ideal. I am trying to book it for spring break as well. Unlike other places I have rented into Rango, they are generous with pillows, blankets, paper towels and toilet paper. The basement bedroom also has a foosball table which my children loved. Potential downside is steep staircase covered in tile, might be difficult with a small child, but I noticed the owner has gates to block the stairs. The owner is very accommodating, nice and easy to work with. It was perfect for our family trip. I highly recommend it.

I was going to write a horrible review. Which means I was going to lie. I was going to lie because maybe I would just keep this gem of a place just for myself. But then I remembered that the owner was gracious and a pleasure to work with, responsive to questions and incredibly helpful. Our family had a great time and we look forward to visiting again.

Spectacular is the best word to describe this home!

My family stayed at the Murphy's home over MLK

weekend. This is a true ski in/ski out luxury home.

There was nothing spared in this home. I would

gladly come back again winter or summer! FYI, I

found Durango skiing better than Tahoe or

Mammoth which is driving distance for us.
