Our 1200 Sq ft, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, customs home was completely remodeled in 2013 and offers the most privacy and seclusion of any property near Purgatory as it sits on 132 acres, yet is less then 2 miles from the ski resort and 25 miles from downtown Durango. VRBO Listing 716605 is also on the property (1/4 mile away) and features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and sleeps 6, if your group is bigger than our 3 bedroom alone can accommodate.
The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The main living space features a 46 inch flat screen TV and wood burning fireplace (wood provided).
The master bedroom has a king size bed, the other two bedrooms both have queen beds.
The property borders the Weminuche national Forest on the North and East, which is the largest and most unused wilderness area in the continental U.S. Their are numerous lakes and ponds on the property, and a road to higher elevations where the views of the surrounding mountains and lakes are spectacular. It is common to see bear, deer, elk, big horn sheep, snow shoe hares, ducks, geese, turkey, coyote, marmot, and the occasional mountain lion or moose. All of the pictures in the listing were taken from the property.
A 4WD/AWD with good tires is required December through March. If you plan to drive a vehicle not so equipped, please book elsewhere. Although the roads are extremely well maintained, we want to ensure our neighbors are not adversely impacted by our guests who may not regularly drive on snow packed roads.
Lastly, we love dogs, and they are totally welcome as long as they are well behaved and get along with people and other dogs. Lucy runs free on the property.
