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.

Comfortable and well located ski condo at Purgatory

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this condo and it was outstanding once again. Plenty of room for 5 adults and 1 dog. The on-slope location is ideal and the condo is very cozy and comfortable. Thanks again to Leslie and Richard for providing a great skiing experience.

Another Great Stay on the. Mountain with our Wonderful Friends

  • 4 of 5

The condo is beautiful and has plenty of room for family and friends. It is truly a "ski in and ski out" as advertised. The dog was happy with going outside without doing any stairs. My only problem was the ice in the garage area. We had great snow and skiing was great.

Owner's Response: We are so please you and your family were so happy with the condo. The weather while you were there was incredible with more than a foot of snow which was fabulous for skiing. Can't get any better than fresh powder but with that does comes some of mother natures ice. We loved having you and hope you come again next year, or this year. Safe travels, Leslie

Great location, great condition, responsive management.

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed at Durango several times, and this is one of the best places that we've stayed in. We would gladly stay here again. You can't get closer to the ski slope. The house is in great shape, and the appliances, fixtures, and furnishings are all in very good condition. When we first arrived at the house, the plumbing in the downstairs bathroom did not work. The pipes had frozen, probably because the thermostat had been left a little too low prior to our arrival. Leslie was very responsive, and the problem was solved promptly. Although this place is great, we did find a few minor nuisances: 1) The bathroom supplies were lacking. We ended-up driving in to town to buy toilet paper, facial tissue, soap, shampoo, etc. 2) The parking situation is OK but not great. The carport is wide enough for only one car, and it can't be a long one. We have a Suburban and it was too long, and also too high to fit without removing the ski rack. You can park one mid-size car in the carport, and then a second large car outside it, which is what we did, and it was fine. The Edelweiss units that do not back up to the ski slope have taller/deeper/wider carports.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a delightful ski trip. Mother Nature was a little bit wild one your arrival day. Her temperatures fell well below zero freezing the pipes in one bath. Fortunately our maintenance man was able to get things working within hours. That said Mother Nature dumped almost 2 feet of snow during that storm. Made for the best skiing! As you said you can not beat the location, the BEST on the entire mountain. You mentioned the parking was better at the condo's across from us but they are not on the ski slope. Location, Location, Location. Thank you for taking your time to review our condo. We are glad you loved the condo and hope you and your family can return soon. Kind Regards, Leslie

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.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that everything worked out perfectly for your vacation. The picture has been fixed and already back in place but more than the picture we are so glad you were not hurt. Yes this is the perfect place to stay when you are here skiing and we hope you can make plans to do so with your family and friends. Keep in touch. Leslie
