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.

A nice surprise was the surplus of storage (closets and drawers), and three decks with a choice of views: the golf course from the back deck, or mountains from the front two decks. We had looked at booking less spectacular condos a little closer to town, but are very glad we booked this one, and would definitely re-book it if we come back to Durango. Communication with the owners was responsive, with clear and easy booking and check-out instructions. The Lodge and Fitness Center were being remodeled but the construction did not bother us at all, and we were so busy with activities in and around Durango that we did not have a chance to use them anyway. Some notes other visitors may find helpful: AT&T cell phone service was strangely intermittent at the condo, so we relied on email and WiFi calling. Tamarron is ~20 minutes north of Durango, with not much in between, so either stock up on groceries on the way in or plan to eat in town. Activites we liked: Rafting the Animas River with Mild To Wild; the Durango & Silverton narrow-gauge steam rail (take the bus one way, both ways on the train could be a LONG day); exploring Middle Mtn. at Lake Vallecito with an ATV rental from Altitude ATV rentals; a day trip to Mesa Verde to see the Pueblo cliff dwellings; and the stunning views from hiking and driving around the area.

Beautifully decorated, clean and a well stocked roomy kitchen where we were able to cook meals together. It was a great location for us as we toured Silverton, Ouray and the Durango area. We all want to come back again!
