Durango Studio Rental Photos and Description

Ski in, Great kitchen,Fireplace,Mountain views,Deck,HDTV,WIFI

I believe McLandski's to be the perfect condo for two. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall it's the ultimate base camp for all your High Country fun. I really enjoy the nice sunny deck and gas grill at lunch and dinner. The upgraded kitchen was designed with care, from the high end appliances to the nice dishes and glassware, I've strived to leave nothing out.

I love cooking and fine dining. We enjoy both at McLandski's! Lower the lights and enjoy the warmth of the fire as the sunset colors the sky. Watching the moon rise over the twilight peaks is my end to the perfect day. Mornings start early as the sun comes up over the 14,000 ft peaks directly east. After a big breakfast it's just a short walk over to the lifts Everyone is happy and having fun. I feel an energy I can't describe but I know I'm there almost every day.

All four seasons have their own activities and beauty.

Don't forget to read my reviews and see what others are saying.

About Terry McGowan

I love this area! Most of all skiing, I ski over 70 days per season and this condo is the perfect base camp. There's no better place to be on a powder day. So book early in ski season if your a powder hound. We wanted a place to stay within walking distance to the chairs without having to give up the comforts of home. We choose this studio for the view and location. Then we completely remodeled it to suit our needs. We keep it supplied and ready to go with everything you need. So you can just show up with your gear and food.

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall I'm amazed at the beauty that surrounds me here. While winter offers what I believe to be the best all around affordable ski vacation anywhere. We get lots of warm sunny days! Way to many in my opinion. However, I love those sunny afternoons on the beach with friends and a beer.

Spring, Summer and Fall there are countless trailheads close by, offering breath taking views. I took all the photo's posted on this website at the condo or from local trails.

Terry McGowan purchased this studio in 2011

What makes this studio unique

Fantastic views, short walk to the main lodge and chairs. The large sunny deck is the perfect place to grill up lunch and take a break before we get back out on the snow. Purgatory flats trailhead which takes you into the half million acre Weminuche wilderness area is walking distance.

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the studio over the July 4th weekend and had a blast! The studio is just as described - very clean, nicely updated, great views and the bed is very comfortable. You will love the condo and love the area - the mountain biking and hiking is fantastic!

Book this condo, you won't regret it!

Perfect short stay without spending too much

  • 5 of 5

This studio was immaculate. Obviously newly renovated. Very well appointed with everything we needed. Bed was a murphy bed and very comfortable. View from the living area/bedroom was a stunning view of the mountains. It was small but we expected that. It is ideal for a couple or one person. Overall, we loved it!

The property and the time away from home were both fantastic. Everything was as described except the views, which were more spectacular. A great place to rest and relax. We made good use of the balcony.

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was nicely appointed, neat as a pin and in a perfect location for my planned hikes and sightseeing/photography shoots. The owner was extremely accommodating when we spoke regarding staying another night and quite helpful with hiking ideas, etc. I will definitely be back!

This is a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This great condo is located in a superb area for sightseeing as well as skiing, hiking and biking the trails of beautiful southwestern Colorado. A hiker's guide to the area is provided, and there's even a backpack in case you hadn't planned on a walkabout! The listing description and photos are right on the money. Everything about the place was excellent. Beautifully refurbished, superb views from the deck, bathed in morning sunshine. The Murphy Bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well-supplied with quality cooking utensils and is stocked with a variety of condiments as well as necessities like foil, plastic wrap. The latter is a really nice touch. It's like coming home rather than moving into an empty shell of a place that has to be stocked. I stayed 4 nights, cooked every meal and never once discovered I didn't have something I needed. I would, and will, recommend this condo to friends. If you have not experienced Southwestern Colorado, do yourself a favor and correct that. It's a hidden gem, in every season, and you couldn't ask for a better home base than this gem of a condo.
