Gorgeous on-mountain condo that is fully updated and well maintained. Brand new 'spa bathroom' featuring river rock and waterfall shower. Chef's kitchen that is modern, high-end and amazingly well-equipped. You won't find a better deal for a condo of this quality and location no matter how hard you look!
Breathtaking San Juan mountain views from every window - the best views in Silverpick Village! A true Colorado experience.
This one bedroom unit has been fully renovated and luxuriously upgraded. It sleeps up to four people and is located on the mountain, about half a mile south of Purgatory Resort, nestled in a mature aspen grove at an elevation of almost 8800 feet. It is only a two-minute drive to resort base area. It is the perfect location for an active get-away, a relaxing break or a romantic escape. The condo features breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains from the living room, dining room, bedroom and deck.
The living room is inviting and decorated in an updated “Colorado Mountain Style” … overstuffed seating, earthy colors, with natural wood and stone elements. The 10-foot wide glass door wall opens to a large private deck with a seating area to enjoy the fresh mountain air and amazing views. Deer and elk sometimes graze within a few dozen feet of the deck. Hummingbirds provide summertime entertainment as they buzz around enjoying the wildflowers.
The interior dining area features seating for four at a lodge-style table. There is also an outdoor courtyard patio dining area that can be used during the warmer months.
We often receive compliments from our guests regarding the impressive chef-inspired kitchen. From the new high end appliances, new cabinets and quartz counter tops to the ultra high quality Italian-made pots and pans, new dishes, utensils and small appliances, you’ll be all set to create a gourmet meal. If cooking on vacation is not your thing, no worries, as there is a great on-site restaurant and several others within a one mile radius of the condo.
You’ll appreciate the fully renovated bathroom with double vanity and featuring Kohler fixtures. Hair dryer, quality linens, guest robes and spa amenities (shampoo, soaps, lotion, sunscreen, etc.) are all included. The bathroom was upgraded to a 'spa room' in 2014 featuring a river rock and waterfall shower. The renovation includes custom tile, new cabinetry, high dual vanities and Kohler HydroRail shower system with super high-end finishes. It just may be the nicest place you have ever showered!
After a day on the mountain or enjoying the great outdoors, relax in front of the stone fireplace or soak in the hot tub, just steps away from the front door. The cozy sofa will invite you to unwind in front of the new 46-inch HD flat screen TV with premium satellite channels. There is also an extensive DVD library with new release and classic movies, a Sony PlayStation with assorted video games and a selection of books, magazines and 'old school' board games for your enjoyment.
When it is finally time to sleep, retire to the ultra-comfortable king-sized bed with top quality bedding and linens. The master bedroom was just redecorated with all new furnishings. Doze off watching the 32-inch HD flat screen TV/DVD. Bringing friends or family? There is also a queen-sized pull-out bed in the living room with a brand new top-of-the-line memory foam mattress.

GO GREEN! To help the environment, we have chosen to subscribe to sustainable 100% wind power electricity for the condo and we have converted lighting to efficient CFB's. In November of 2013 we added a high efficiency European-style heating system throughout the unit. All appliances are new and Energy Star rated. The condo has been painted with low VOC paint.

Krista and Gabor call Denver home but spend as much time as possible in Durango and the Austrian Alps. 'We love the mountain lifestyle and Durango has some of the best hiking and biking in the world .. the scenery and weather are amazing.' 'We hope that you'll enjoy this area and the condo as much as we do, and that you'll agree this is one of the most perfect spots in all Colorado!'
Krista Molloy purchased this condo in 1999
We loved Durango from that first visit. We bought the property knowing that one day we wanted to retire in this area. It reminded Krista of Canada (where she was born) and reminded Gabor of Austria (where he had lived). The mountains in this area are very rugged and beautiful and the evergreen and aspen forests are amazingly green and lush. We bought the condo thinking winter would be when we would spend the most time there, but after visiting in spring, summer and fall, we discovered the other seasons are just as impressive. The 300+ days of sunshine each year was the final deciding factor ... we couldn't resist.
This is a true 'home away from home' ... well-equipped, comfortable and completely modernized. The location - about half a mile from the ski resort - makes it close enough to feel like a Colorado mountain resort, but far enough away from the noise and congestion of the base area. In the summer, the location escapes the uncomfortable desert heat of the town of Durango, still only 20 to 25 minutes away (and the most beautiful 24 mile drive you can imagine!). The setting is pristine ... backed up against the Hermosa cliffs to the west, surrounded by mature aspen forests and breathtaking views of the San Juan mountains to the north and east. We bet you won't want your vacation to end!
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your condo! It was really great! I loved that the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to actually prepare and serve meals! Just super comfortable with everything we could ask for! The skiing was perfect and it was so nice to be so close to the area (as well as the hot tub!) Probably the best VRBO we've ever stayed in by far! We really appreciated the offer of a late check-out. We hope to be back soon!
The mountain retreat was a very nice place to stay. We will definitely stay here again!
We arrived at the condo late in the evening (having stopped at Walmart in Durango to pick up a few items) and were very pleased with how the place was well appointed. I have been in property management and hospitality for 20 years and was so impressed with how well equipped every room in the house was. It had everything you could ask for in a vacation situation. The place was exceptionally clean. It was nice to have all the first aid/personal toiletries that you wouldn't think of bringing from home. The kitchen has everything above and beyond what you could ask for. One thing to keep in mind, there is little tv reception and the only reason we noticed was due to not being able to get NFL football or baseball playoffs BUT the internet is private and strong enough for streaming as well as being able to log into work if necessary. Also, just know that you are not in the heart of downtown Durango and the condo is approximately 24 miles from town. The drive is beautiful and the good part is that you are closer to Silverton, Ouray and Telluride. The bathroom is like a spa and I loved the decor (where did you get the 3 photos of the stones?) and the cedar bench in the shower (very handy for women). Lovely back deck and having a view of the beautiful trees and mountains was very tranquil and relaxing, and in the fall - the colors were vivid. There is a nice wood fireplace with wood supplied, though we did not use it. It is exactly as described and very nice being away from the bustle of town and traffic. The Sow's Ear had excellent food and a bar as well as places to dine just up the road at Purgatory. We were at Silverpick for a wedding at Silverpick Lodge and all the activities planned went off without a problem. We do plan to come back for a longer stay for hiking and relaxing and will book Krista's property. You cannot go wrong with this wonderful condo.
This is our second time staying at the condo and it was as wonderful as the first time. It is clean, quiet, and the area is gorgeous.
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The condo was immaculate and equipped with everything you could need.
I would definitely return again and reccommend it to my closest friends and family.
This is a home run!
Wow just left after 7 nights and this condo has it all!! Including bandaids, sewing kit, pre stamped postcards (love that thanks Krista), stain remover, Advil, and lost goes on!! All kitchen equipment too! So cutely decorated inside too. Nice soft sheets!! If you need something Krista already thought about it. Perfect location for hikes and Alpine Loop and Silverton, Durango etc. Rhe condo is on the end on bottom floor too so have privacy. Hot tub just outsude door too. We had great time and we will be back. Just like home. Even couple snacks are provided. Will not find another rental equipped like this condo either. The Owners go over and beyond to win your business back!! Thanks so much for beautiful, great place.
Also met John property manager. Very nice and likable person!!!
