Our townhome includes spacious, comfortable, three bedroom/three bath accommodations with ground floor access, parking at the entry, a one car garage, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, full size washer and dryer, a wood-burning fireplace, Jacuzzi bathtubs, private deck, and satellite TV.

Manager info

About: Jeff and Pamela are the on-site management team available 24-7 at the Needles Townhomes. We came on to the Needles in 2013, and have been partaking in the awesome local activities and benefits. Just ask us for recommendations, and we will be glad to help you in the right direction.

Why Needles:
Many people may think of staying in town or at the Puragatory Resort. However, we feel the Needles Townhomes has many benefits for the average family, such as proximity to a gas station, convenience store, ski and bike rental shop, and snow boarding shop. We also have ground floor entries, one car garages, full private laundry room in each unit just like home, full size kitchen and dining rooms, fully equipped with all cooking and eating utensils for full family meals and entertaining guests. Each unit also has a wood-burning fireplace, wood included, and master bathroom with Jacuzzi. We are centrally located between the entertainment opportunities of Durango and the outdoor activities of the San Juan Mountains. Enjoy security and safety with a private access code and direct connection to the local fire station and management for any emergencies that may arise. We are here to make your stay a memorable and secure experience!
