Recent Durango reviews

  • Very nice views and lots of good things, but not secluded.

    "Some really great things! I also want to mention some things that were disappointing. First the great: The view from the deck and the deck itself are awesome. Really nice to have the option of the awning or sit out in the sun. Beautiful view. Really cool to have wildlife. Saw a deer, several humming birds, a couple wood peckers, and in the lake I saw painted turtles and goldfish. This was really great! The green kayak was nice to be able to take out on the lake and explore. Really nice distance from Durango and is a great location for many adventures around the area. Now I want to mention some things that were disappointing to me to hopefully be constructive criticism. While it's NOT advertised as secluded, the pictures did make it seem to me that it was really secluded aside from the house all the way across the lake. So keep in mind I was expecting seclusion. The first situation I came into was someone camping in what seemed to be part of the yard. Also, there were 2 neighbors not too far away, maybe the next lots over even, and they were running big heavy equipment making really loud backup beeping noises and loud noises in general while they were landscaping or something, not sure what they were doing. They ran this loud equipment almost every day I was there for at least part of the day. I was really looking forward to peace and quiet away from it all, and I had to adjust my attitude pretty quickly since this didn't provide that. The camper was part of the family and was extremely nice and no problems there, it's just that when expecting seclusion from everyone and everything, it's a bit disappointing to have neighbors. Along the same lines, the county road is closer to the house than I'd imagined and was fairly busy, so loud vehicle noises were frequent when sitting outside. Boats and boat access were a bit tough. All boats except the kayak and pontoon were filled about 1/3 of the way with lake water. I tried to empty the rowboat out only to get more water in it, so then I tried baling it with a bucket, but it wasn't making much of a dent after a few minutes so I stopped and used the kayak. Access was a bit tough just because of how many boats there are for the small space. I understand not wanting to affect the lake too much by a big dock, this wasn't too big of an issue. Overall if you don't need total seclusion, it's a really nice older home type feel with a beautiful view, and access to wildlife and close to many great things to do."

  • Almost Heaven at Purgatory

    "We just got back from our winter family vacation at Purgatory. The Durango House was the best imaginable base for our family of nine. We had six adults and three kids 10 & under. There was a nice base of snow when we arrived, and about 15 inches fell while we were there. Even with the questionable tires on our two mini-vans, we had no trouble with access, either to the house or ski area, due to the wonderful job of plowing done by the maintenance people. If you don't have 4WD, this is the perfect house, with nearly level roads between it and the resort. If you're worried about it, you can always take the shuttle from the Cascade Village. The house itself has been accurately and appropriately praised by other reviewers, so I won't repeat what they've said. Good supply of seasoned firewood was in the garage. Lots of spices and basic supplies like oils and coffee filters in the kitchen left by prior visitors. I'd recommend waiting 'till you get here to see what you need in that regard. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked all meals there and never ate out, so no restaurant recommendations from us. Nice mud room/laundry with coat pegs. Ski racks in the garage, but no tuning bench. The owner was very responsive to our questions. It was really nice to be able to pull the cars into the garage! Oh, and the views! Why stay anywhere else?"
