Recent Purgatory (Formerly Durango Mountain Resort) reviews

  • Fantastic condo for a perfect Vacation!

    "We were three "empty nester" couples that have known each other since high school, all love Colorado, and were looking to spend an enjoyable week-long vacation together. We had a GREAT time! The condo was absolutely PERFECT! I would highly recommend it to anyone! It was clean, beautifully decorated, well-equipped, and the location was fantastic! The condo is about 20 minutes outside of Durango. We spent time in Durango, Mesa Verde, Silverton, Ouray and the Black Canyon, so it was a good central location for everything we did. We liked being outside the city and able to enjoy the beautiful mountain views. We made some hummingbird nectar for the feeder and loved watching all the hummingbirds It is an added bonus that the condo is in Durango Mountain Resort because you can shop, get Starbucks coffee, and use the recreational activities (ski lift, rent mountain bikes, etc). However, we came Labor Day week, so some of the activities closed after Labor Day. The owners were very friendly and provided us with everything we needed to know to have a great time. Prior to our trip, they provided us with a list of suggestions for things to do and then they had additional information in the condo too. The information was very helpful! In addition to sightseeing, we did two hikes. The first hike we did was to Ice Lake, which is near Silverton. It was a strenuous 7.5 mile round trip hike, but the lake was breathtaking and WELL worth it! The lake is a spectacular powder blue color when in the sun. We also did the hike to Spud Lake (which is just down the road from the condo and was in the book of recommended hikes provided by the owners). The rock road getting there was a little rough though....we had to park the minivan about 3/4 of the way up to the parking lot because we couldn't make it any further...you might need a high clearance vehicle to make it the rest of the way up. Once you get to the parking lot, you see a small lily lake. There were two beaver lodges in the lake (we saw the beaver), lily pads are all over the lake and there were a lot of ducks feeding among the lilies. The reflections of the clouds on the lake made for a beautiful photo-op! We then hiked the mile up to Spud Lake and it was another wonderful lake. We saw several people fly fishing there and also saw an osprey dive into the lake and catch a fish! If you are interested in vacationing in the Durango and surrounding area, I highly recommend this condo!"

  • Spring Break Family Trip

    "The condo is conveniently located right at the base of Purgatory. It's a short walk to the base and lifts. Earlier in the season, you could probably ski on snow covered roads to get in and out of the condo but it was an easy walk this time of year. The weather was gorgeous. The condo is nicely maintained but some parts of it are a little dated and, with only two bathrooms, it got a little congested in the morning and right before bed which is why I'm only giving it four stars. However, the living areas were spacious and comfortable. The pool wasn't open during our stay but we got complimentary passes to Trimble Hot Springs instead which was great. Overall, it's a great location and value for the money."

  • Affordable Studio Rental

    "Overall we had a great stay for our first time in Durango and the owner was very attentive. Pros: The condo was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The bed was comfy and we always had hot water for showers. Looks exactly as pictured and it's a close walk to the slopes. Cons: The building does not have an elevator. The room is located just off the stairwell, so we could hear everyone going up and down, BUT we were so tired from skiing all day that it didn't really wake us. The small sofa beds were uncomfortable for our 12yr old son. Would not recommend them for an adult."

  • Had Everything we needed

    "We drove 20 hours to spend some time in the Durango area and arriving at this condo was such a treat. Set in the mountains with gorgeous views on all sides, this was a great place to relax after our long days of hiking, site-seeing, and whitewater kayaking. It's clean, and stocked with everything we needed for cooking, laundry, relaxing, and sleeping. We even brought our two teenagers and even though they didn't have their own bedroom, it had ample space for a vacation spot."
