Property description

Enjoy some of the best views on Durango mountain and a gorgeous, richly detailed decor. From the sweeping summer greenery against Cerulean skis, flaming fall aspens, and glorious snow covered winter peaks, our year-round views are hard to beat. In winter season ski in and ski out at Purgatory from our courtyard, and wave to bunny slopes skiers from our balcony. In summer, spring and fall seasons; the balcony and patio offer outdoor seating with stunning vistas that make you feel great to be alive.

Every item in our home is chosen to create a memory making ambiance. In the bedrooms reconnect with the romance of glass chandeliers, RL and PB bedding, and suede paint walls. Upstairs, reclaimed wood tables and a luxurious down-cushion sectional perfectly complement the golden earth tones of the Aurora Borealis granite. From a chocolate iridescent glass back-splash, to plush fur throws and a hand blown glass dining chandelier, each lovingly chosen item instills a comfort and beauty we hope will make you want to return each year.

In Spring, Summer and Fall enjoy multiple lakes: Haviland Lake, Spud Lake, Purgatory Lake, Molas Lakes, Hermosa Creek, Electra Lake. All lakes offer multiple hiking trails, most also allow fishing, some paddle boarding and non-motorized boating. Electra Lake may allow motorized up to 18' and wake boarding (check their site), Electra is a private lake with fee but fishing license not required. Fishing Licenses are required at other lakes and can be purchased at Durangler's or online. In summer the lifts run for a scenic trip up the mountain, and tons of hiking or mountain biking. Summer the resort also has the family fun Alpine slide, putt putt golf, a bungee jump, single zipline and water-balls. In spring, summer and fall, the Durango Silverton Railroad can be ridden from Rockwood Train Station in the mountains, just 12 minutes south of our homes.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 'Views to Dream About, Ski In Ski Out' is our new listing; however we have been renting by owner on Durango Mountain since 2008. Our philosophy of owner vacation rentals is to think about making each space unique, and to maintain the interior ambiance each year. We want to offer guests somewhere special to make their memories! Cody and I share a passion for home building and interior design; and strive to offer unique, comfortable, beautiful spaces for our guests to enjoy their Rocky Mountain vacation time. We'd love the blessing of more little ones ourselves, and make sure that the bunk room is inviting for children. We also provide a pack n play, and fisher price high chair/booster in each of our condos. For the moment, we and our young daughter feel grateful for each day that we get to spend in the refreshing mountain air, enjoying down-town Durango, and exploring Silverton, Ouray, Mesa Verde and the mountain lakes and hiking trails. We hope that the carefully chosen furniture, bedding, lighting, art and special details (like beautiful Pier 1 dinnerware and Italian glasses) will be enjoyed by your family as much as it is by ours! We're both romantics, and have made sure the bedroom designs are lovely enough to spend your Durango honeymoon in; or to renew your woo (even if there are 4 children in the next rooms:)

Why the Owner Chose East Rim:
The Views, the Views, the Views. It certainly does not hurt that our condo home is ski in/ Ski out. We also love the East Rim community of 4 buildings (8 units each and green space around each building) and location at Durango Mountain resort where we have owned for 5 years. Both our lovingly upgraded and beautifully furnished East Rim units have upstairs balconies and downstairs patios. With a small investment in hummingbird, bird and squirrel feeders; the birds, chipmunks and Marmots make Spring, Summer and Fall stays even more fun!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Enjoy outdoor seating and dining on both the patio and balcony in Spring, Summer and Fall. In winter, the ski in/out option is pretty convenient! Year-round the 2 levels of corner unit views will make you feel just a little closer to Heaven!
