Durango, Colorado holds the beauty of a vanished world. It is the most tranquil place mixed with history, recreation, and unerasable memories. Our 2600+ square foot custom home is nestled in the mountains overlooking beautiful Lake Purgatory. The brilliance of Engineer and Spud Mountain can be seen to the North, and to the East the Animas River which flows through the La Plata Mountains.
The home was created by the hands of a master with each window intricately creating a new view of the lake. Giant doors lead you onto a deck where you'll find a hot tub that you can soak in after your daily activities. At night the sky is so black, you'll feel like you're sitting under an umbrella of stars. The night is so peaceful you can hear the fish in the water. You'll be located at an elevation of 9000 feet somewhere in the vicinity of the gods. The interior is very comfortable with all luxurious amenities that will connect you back to the real world. Now that you've found the perfect place to visit, look no further for a place to stay.
You can walk out and fish for brook trout in the backyard. We have a canoe you can take out to fish the lake. It is a private lake so you won't see many others. Summer is the busy season in Durango, you can ride the train, hike, bike, bobsled at the ski area across the street, horseback riding, gold panning or rest and read a book. We are 26 miles north of Durango. If you have any questions please feel free to call. Experience Durango, Colorado.

The house fantastic! You cannot beat the location, the view, everything was perfect. Mike the caretaker was also great and the Homeowner answered all our questions. We enjoyed every aspect of the house! We saw elk, trout and beavers and we got some snow! Thank you for sharing and we hope to be back!
Awesome Family Vacation Spot
We had such a great relaxing time at this beautiful home with stunning views from every room. We made great memories with our daughter, granddaughter and friends with time spent on the lake, fishing and just enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We had plenty of room to spread out in very clean and comfortable accommodations. Can't wait to go back next year. Thank you Joe and Marcia for sharing this truly unique vacation spot with us and others.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and had time to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Famliy memories are made in unique spots where nature takes away the electronics and the relationships in life bloom.
This is a special place
The home sits near the inlet of a stream that feeds Columbine (Purgatory) lake. It’s a beautiful setting and home, and we thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful week stay. Our kids loved the paddle boats and canoe, and it was a really special family vacation for us. The owners are very friendly and responsive. Our thanks and love to Joe and Marcie for sharing their wonder home.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and creating family memories.
Wonderful Summer Getaway!
Our family of five had an amazing time during our first trip to Durango. Our 3 boys loved playing on the lake in the canoes. The home is fully stocked, very clean and a perfect place to get away from it all. We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Amazing rental home
Our family spent 4 incredible days at this lake house and cannot wait to come back again, hopefully soon. The place is so pretty with all kinds of views of the lake and fall colors, spacious home where the two little grandkids could enjoy themselves. Being out on the boat was so exciting for them as well. The home is well stocked and has very comfortable rooms, large kitchen & dining area and the pictures don't do it justice. Thanks Marcia for all your hospitality. Would definitely recommend this place but sure hope it's available next time we can make it there. Al/Kay, NE
Please come back for family memories. We will find a space for you and your family!
OMG! What a wonderful time!
This was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed! The house was beautiful and spacious, the scenery was great and the fishing was so much fun! I am from SC and me and my daughter from here with her family met my other daughter and her family in Denver and drove to Durango. We stayed five nights and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed using the boats to cruise around the lake with the kids. We were able to do some fishing and caught 3 different types of trout, one weighing over five pounds. We were close to Pagosa Springs, Durango, Silverton, and Mesa Verde for sightseeing. I would recommend this home to everyone looking to have the perfect vacation.
So glad you enjoyed the mountain life!
