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.

About Leslie Hennig

My husband and I live in Florida. We are avid skier, scuba divers, and travelers. We have one daughter who lives in NYC.

Leslie Hennig purchased this condo in 2004

Why Leslie Hennig chose Southwestern Colorado

We love Durango and the mountain of Purgatory. It is our home away from home with wonderful friendly people. The area has fun year round

What makes this condo unique

We have fully upgraded our condo for everyone to enjoy.

'ON' the ski slope best location on the mountain for skiers and snow boarders.

The balance of the year you have a wonderful back yard to watch wildlife and enjoy the great outdoors.

"ON" the Ski Slope - Not Just Ski-in/Ski Out
average rating of 4.935484 based on 31 reviews

Beautiful, cozy, and well-appointed!

  • 5 of 5

Six of my family members and our three dogs stayed at this condo at Purgatory Resort in August for a great deal with last-minute notice. The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed, and all six of us were so pleased with how much room we had to ourselves while still feeling like we were all together. The back door opens right up to the chairlift and I think this would be a perfect place to get a few folks together for a ski getaway in the winter. Leslie was incredibly gracious and responsive on two occasions that I think are worth mentioning: 1) I fell and accidentally broke the glass on one of the large picture frames in the foyer, and 2) I accidentally left some bags in the fridge and Leslie made sure that I was able to access the condo and retrieve them. I would definitely recommend this condo, not just for its location and amenities but also for the generosity and care of its owners.

Best ski in/0ut on mountain

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful condo and enjoyed the BEST location on the entire mountain. We had an absolute fabulous time. There is no where else you can ski right out your back door, onto the lift, and ski back right to your porch. WOW!!! We have rented" ski-in/out” condos before but the phase is best said with this condo. The condo was fantastic and had plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The place was spotless and very well decorated. The wood burning fire place was wonderful and there is plenty of free firewood in your carport. The beds were very comfortable with the new mattresses so everyone had great nights sleep. The jetted tub was a hit after skiing to soak, relax, and unwind. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed to cook for a large group without having to clean the dishes every two minutes. The condo is situated within a few minutes walking distance to the “Village” with all the shops and restaurants. We will definitely come back to Edelweiss #10 and recommend it to everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the beautiful review. We are so glad you and your family had such a grand time at the condo and the resort.

Fondly, Leslie

Always the Best

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd stay and I would not go anywhere else at the resort. It is the perfect place, always clean, well decorated, kitchen stocked with everything you ever need. Now the best part - the condo is ON the ski slope. Just like they say on this web site - no elevators, no hallways, no roads - you are already on the slope. Can not get any better. We are now spoiled. The owner's Leslie and Rick are great to work with. They can even help with restaurants, things to do besides skiing, etc. Can not wait to come back. My wife and I are thinking Fall for the wonderful colors that Autumn brings. Oh, and of course coming back for skiing.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you had such a great time late spring skiing. You did have quite a bit of snow in early April. I hear all the locals were out of some great last minute skiing. We heard from your better half and are working on the fall colors reservation. Thank you for always taking the time to thank us for keeping the condo just like "home". We love having our families back time and time again.

Excellent location! Accomodating owner. Well mantained property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this property during spring time, during the last skiing days of the 2015-16 season.

A true ski in and out is just great! Literally two feet away from a ski trail!

We were travelling in a large group (8 ) and everybody was comfortably accomodated in the property. It is very well mantained and has everything for you to enjoy your stay!

Leslie was very kind and helpful prior to and during our stay at her condo.

We will hopefeully be back and definitely recommend it.

Can't get better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a skiing family of 8 from SW Florida and have skiied all over the country. When we look for a place to stay we are always most interested in 3 things: Is it really ski-in/ski-out? Does it have a wood burning fireplace? and Are there enough beds for everyone? This beautiful condo ABSOLUTELY meets all of these criteria. It is impossible to be any more ski-in/ ski-out than this. Out the back door, down 4 steps, on slopes! An awesome bonus for us is that after the slopes close for the day, the hill becomes a perfect sledding location for the kids (sleds available in the condo).

The layout of the condo is perfect for sitting either at the dining table (large enough for our family of 8) or in the living room and watching TV with a wood burning fire crackling away. Nothing better than that. Also, there were beds for everyone and TVs in the bedrooms. Great for when the kids wanted to watch something different than Mom and Dad.

Overall, this place was excellent. We would would highly recommend this condo to anyone. We will definitely be back again. Thanks Leslie for an awesome stay!
