Overview

About the property

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.

The condo was everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

This condo looks even better in person! Everything was extremely clean and the home was designed so nicely. The condo is right on the slope and we had a great time exploring the resort. Durango just a short drive is a great town and it was nice coming back to a peaceful home with a gorgeous view of the mountain. Would love to make this a regular trip and keep coming back to stay at Leslie's home! She made it so easy to book our stay and gave us all the information we needed as first time visitors, all the hard work was done for us! Thanks for a great trip!!

The Best Condo on the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and always come back to our home away from home. We have adopted the condo as ours. This time we were surprised with a new bedroom set for the master bedroom. Great addition! We loved the fall colors and had a very relaxing time. Next visit will be to ski (need to email Leslie for a date). We love the location of the condo which is ON the slope and is the best on the mountain. You literally walk outside, put your skis on, and ski to the lift. Return for a break you just ski to the condo. Can't wait! Thank you for letting us stay again we always enjoy the area.

Your comments will help the families looking to rent here at the resort. Thank you!!! As always, Safe Travels, Leslie

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a great location to enjoy all of the activities at Purgatory, hiking trails, etc. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with, no problems with check-in, etc. The parking situation was a little challenging with 2 full-size trucks, one will fit in the carport, but if there are cars parked outside the carport at both of adjacent condos, there is no way you can park a large vehicle in front of this condo. One of the master bedrooms is downstairs and it tends to feel a bit damp, so you need to run the heat a bit (even in the summer!) to keep it comfortable, and we also had a few ants and spiders in the bathroom - so unfortunately it felt like you were in the basement. The second master is on the main floor and was very nice, and then there are 2 bedrooms, a loft, and a nicely renovated bathroom on the 3rd floor. There was plenty of sleeping room for our party of 8. The kitchen was small but nicely set up, with lots of plates and silverware and all the necessities. All of the appliances were clean and worked well. There is a small patio, but there were no chairs other than a few wood benches - it would have been nice to sit out there more comfortably. The one problem we had - there was only one towel and washcloth provided for each guest, so we were constantly doing laundry. It would have been so much nicer to have extra towels in a linen closet, but if there were any, we couldn't find them and we looked everywhere. Overall, we had a great stay, and hope to return for a winter stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We were at the resort the same time you were and unfortunately Mother Nature was not so kind producing huge thunderstorms each day and a hail storm also. Damp to say the least and I guess we were both glad for heaters not only to dry out the places but also as the temperatures dipped into the 50's at night. I forwarded my caretaker your comments regarding the towels she was a little disappointed that you did not reach out to her for additional ones or to me as we were both 2 minutes away. She said she will make sure there is ample in the condo in the future. Our parking/driveway for the 6 units (2 unoccupied) in our building is 150' long x 30' wide so there is plenty of parking. I'm not sure why there was no room for your two vehicles and as you said one fit inside our carport. With all that said it is the most important that you did have a wonderful stay and would like to return in the winter and we would love to have you back. The wintertime is beautiful on the mountain. Warm regards, Leslie
