  • Awesome House in Town

    "Fantastic house! As a designer I'm kind of a snob, and in this house I wouldn't change a thing! It is beautiful! Awesome kitchen and open living space, cozy and inviting! Bedrooms were all great as well as the bathrooms-- especially master bath! Can't beat the location! You can walk to everything in town! We loved our stay!!!"

  • 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?"

  • Balloons, Rainbow Trout, Mountains, and the Best Place to Stay in Pagosa Springs

    "We just returned from Pagosa Springs and we have never enjoyed a rental property as much as this one. The remodel is gorgeous and very comfortable and inviting. The townhouse was very well equipped and the floorplan was perfect. Everything we needed to cook was available in the kitchen. The location in regards to shopping is stellar. And right off the back patio is Colorado, waiting for you to enjoy. We fished Lake Pagosa and caught our limits of rainbow trout each day. We took the first ones home and grilled them for dinner and then we started stocking the freezer. The views from the patio are wonderful and Lake Pinon is right across the back lawn. Pagosa Springs was having their Colorfest and several balloons ascended from a spot right across Lake Pinon from our patio on Friday and Sunday morning. It was a pleasure to spend our vacation at this townhouse and we hope to return soon and often. BTW - The owner was so terrific and very easy to work with. Thank you for allowing us the privilege to enjoy your home."
