There is wonderful hiking and fly fishing a few minutes’ drive up the resort road to Hermosa Creek, with horseback riding also available. In late October and November Elk Hunting is also popular on the mountain. We are a short and scenic 30 minute drive North of Historic Durango and the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Durango boasts 'Music in the Mountains held each summer at the resort: festivals in the fall, chili cook offs, art galleries, darling boutiques and ample restaurants. Thanks to Ft. Lewis College in Durango there is a strong theatre, visual arts and music scene as well. If you still have energy, try some mountain biking, river-rafting, and kayaking or always free, rock hopping!

Winding down, take a family drive to explore the old mining towns of Silverton and Ouray. The mountain drive is easy and goes past waterfalls and amazing red mountains affording endless opportunities for budding photographers and professionals alike! Regardless of age or activity, if you love the great outdoors you will love the Durango area and your stay at Durango Mountain Resort!

About Steve & Toni Qualls

Back in the 70's we (Stephen & Toni) shared Durango family fun and the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad with our son and his Grandma Margaret. Little did we imagine our son and his wife would 're-discover' Durango and bring it back into our lives. We loved their East Rim Condo and fly-fishing on the mountain so much, we decided to get our own! We are excited to create new family memories with our 3 daughters & son, their wonderful spouses and our 9 beloved Grandchildren. We also look forward to our Guests enjoying the ambiance of mountain home that we are blessed to have. We fell in love with the interior charm right away (we've always dreamed of a log cabin)and the location makes it easy to play.

Steve & Toni Qualls purchased this condo in 2010

Why Steve & Toni Qualls chose Southwestern Colorado

Too many things we love about Durango to fit into a little paragraph! Just to name a few: Ample places to explore for Fly fishing (how much gear do you have Steve???), wonderful walks along Hermosa Creek, the refreshing mountain air with morning coffee, superb selection of restaurants, BBQing on the mountain view patio, Great selection of Churches and downtown activities, the old cowboy mining towns of Silverton and Ouray (is that more than a few?)

What makes this condo unique

We are so wonderfully close to the slopes, lodge and village. Down our steps, and a few meters across the brave can ski right down to the bunny slope and transit lift area. 'Rule-followers' Ha Ha, have just a 2 minute walk right to the main lift area. We joined the DMMA, and pay an additional 8% that we include in our rates so our guests can also share in the enjoyment of the outdoor pool (heated in cool months, hot tub, well-equipped fitness center, tennis courts and valet ski check & Spa (the last two are optional and do have additional fees for us as well, however the DMMA key you receive at check-in gives you access to the areas).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful condo, nicely appointed, very welcoming, and very accessible to lifts and mountain village. Jim loved that he had Direct TV "just like home" with record feature so we could follow our usual routine of taping Jay Leno and watching it over breakfast. I loved the availability of condiments, spices and basic cooking needs. I brought my own because I'm used to that, but it's a real plus to have them available and just replace what you use.All in all we give C24 an A+. We probably won't be back in Durango this winter/spring, but with the first snowfall next season we will look forward to checking in with you again. We will definitely recommend your rentals to our friends, as well.

Everything here is first class

  • 5 of 5

When I look at vacation rentals, I always look for comfortable furniture because I plan to RELAX. All the furniture here is comfortable including the hideabed. The condo is quiet and private and the location is beautiful. We cooked a few meals ... the kitchen is well stocked and laid out perfectly. We also barbequed and there is plenty of room for four to watch the cook and drink a beer on the deck, enjoying the wonderful view. The linens, pillows and beds are definitely first class. The decor is delightful and the art is amazing. We did not use the pool or the hot tub but the people at the resort were very helpful and nice. We did eat at Purgie's and the food was very good. Do ride the Silverton-Durango train and I would say to ride it both ways even though it is an all day trip. The views are worth it! Don't let anyone scare you off the Ouray-Silverton Highway (as happened to our friends) ... it is a fun drive. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation at the Quall's Bunkhouse!

The vacation home that keeps on delivering!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Steve and Toni's place at Durango Mountain Resort two years in a row, and this stay was even better than the first. The scenery is breath-taking, bu the setting make you feel at home. This gracious couple is easily reachable, are easy to work with, and are invested in keeping their mountain home in tip top shape. Unlike many other rentals, the Direct TV and Wi-Fi actually function as they should, as does every other feature in their home. Now that's a setting that fosters relaxation and enjoyment in the midst of sheer beauty.

Perfection location for a perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four absolutely loved this condo and the Purgatory Resort. The weather was beautiful the first week of August. We bought a hummingbird feeder for the weekend and our kids actually had hummingbirds sitting on their fingers in front of the feeder. We counted 10 at a time feeding from the feeder. We also watched a family of marmots play beneath the deck. We enjoyed the amenities that were offered and extra activities available for purchase such as the alpine slide, scenic lift, zipline, etc. The condo was nicely stocked. We cooked all but two meals. The pizza restaurant onsite has wonderful pizza!! The view from this condo is lovely and the walk to the pool/hot tub is a short one ... just right across the street. We had a nice drive to Vallecito Lake, Mesa Verda, Telluride, Durango and Hermosa (don't drive up the Lower Hermosa Road and go up the mountain to the trailhead during a rain, you may have to wait an hour for the road grader to clear a mudslide!!) Many beautiful things to see in this area. Thanks so much for your attention to detail. The decor was charming and the canvas paintings were so lovely. We had a wonderful family vacation with memories to last a lifetime! God Bless! We can't wait to return to Colorado one day . . . and this will be where we will stay!

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for lots of SW Colorado fun! The condo was very comfortable with great views and easy access to all the happenings (zip line, alpine slide, mtn. biking etc.) at Purgatory. We've stayed at several VRBO and it was the most equipped best decorated of any. My boys were so happy with the fly fishing and the girls relaxed at the pool. Perfect family vacation when you add in rafting down the Animas and Mesa Verde. We'd love to come back!

Truly Wonderful Views--Clean, comfortable, wonderfully decorated and equipped

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly what we hoped it would be. Very comfortable and clean. Interesting decor and wonderful views from the balcony. All of the amenities were provided: from the applicances, dishes, pots and pans, extra spices, all of the shower and laundry supplies, etc. We especially enjoyed the location and the view. Every day we were able to take early morning walks with our dog along many different paths and then return for breakfast on the balcony. If we were to go back to that area, we would certainly consider renting this condo again.

We loved the location: close enough to Durango to be able to enjoy its attractions, but still did a lot of time exploring around Purgatory. "Music in the Mountains" concerts were being held several days just across from the Condo. Went to listen to several of the rehearsals. Very magical. We enjoyed the Durango-Silverton train ride; golfing at Hillcrest Golf Course and had a fantastic last meal at the "Sow's Ear"(just a few minutes from the condo.)
