Retreat to a Mountain Paradise in a Durango Rental Home

There are few things that are more relaxing that spending time breathing in the fresh mountain air and enjoying incredible mountain views from the deck of your Durango rental home. This may be how you start and end each day of your incredible mountain vacation, and your days can be filled with many amazing activities. With a closer look at all that the Durango area has to offer, you may see why this is where you want to head to for your next vacation.

Outdoor Recreation

Hiking and sightseeing are among the most popular activities to enjoy throughout the warmer months of the year from your vacation home. You can explore the ancient civilizations in the area in great detail with a tour of Mesa Verde National Park, and you can hike along numerous trails at the nearby San Juan National Forest. The Animas River Trail is a remote trail that provides you with spectacular views as well as the opportunity to see wildlife while you are hiking.

Attractions

There are numerous attractions that can fill your days with fun while you are staying in your vacation rental. The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is a thrilling way to take in some of the sights that are off the beaten path, and you will want to bring your camera along on this railway trip. Shopping for souvenirs in historic downtown Durango is a “must” before you head back home. Animas River is a great place to head for outdoor adventures, and there are tubing and river rafting excursions available throughout the warmer months of the year.

Nightlife

Whether you spend your days in Durango shopping, skiing, hiking or enjoying other activities, one thing is certain. You will want the fun to continue on after the sun goes down, and there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Durango is home to numerous nightspots, including the 6512 Restaurant and Lounge, the Colorado Pongas, the 8th Avenue Tavern, the Diamond Belle Saloon, Moe's and others. Many of these have live music in addition to great drinks and food options.

Weather

Durango has a humid continental climate that is characterized by warm, dry summers rather dry, cold winters. The average precipitation level here is less than 20 inches per year. Between May and September, the average high temperature is between the 70s and 80s, and the average high in the winter months is in the low 40s. Keep in mind that the elevation here is approximately 6,500 feet above see level, and the area is located in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States. With this in mind, there are considerable elevation changes, both higher and lower, just a short distance outside of the town. This can have a major impact on the temperature in the area, and because of this, you should plan to dress in layers throughout the year so that you are appropriately dressed for all weather conditions.

How to Get There

Durango does not have a major airport in or around the area, and the nearest major airport is located southeast of the city in Albuquerque. You can fly into the Albuquerque International Sunport, and drive northwest along Highway 550 to reach Durango. If you are traveling throughout the state of Colorado by road, Durango is located at the convergence of Highway 550 and Highway 160, just west of Pagosa Springs and east of Cortez.

Beautiful condo! Our family of 4 plus all my in laws (5) had plenty of space.

5 of 5
Great location. The shuttle service to/from the mountain was on time every day. The burgers at the Lodge bar were fantastic. We all slept well. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook multiple meals for 9. No complaints! Thanks for sharing your space!

Fabulous mountain cabin!!

5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful 2 night stay at the Nugget cabin in Purgatory. From the well-stocked kitchen, cozy wood-burning stove, & the incredible collection of LPs (including some old-time Christmas ones that really took me back to my childhood), to the awesome hot tub & beautifully stunning mountain backdrop, we could not have been happier. Regina was so great too, with detailed directions and quick answers to all of our questions. Whether you're looking for a romantic mountain getaway (we'll have to return for that) or have a group of people like we did (6 total - a little cozy, but totally worked) the Nugget is ideal. Thanks so much Regina - we can't wait to come back!
