About the property

Beautiful Condo on Historic Main Avenue Durango, CO

Durango Colorado vacation rental condo in the heart of the Main Avenue Historic District.

Exciting location! Historic downtown Durango Colorado right on Main Avenue, the vibrant old town area with a multitude of restaurants, shops and entertainment options, and an easy stroll to the famous Durango-Silverton Train Depot. This one-bedroom condo has been recently remodeled with an eye on modernization & luxury, and right in the middle of all things Durango.

Constructed in 1888, The Jarvis Building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, with a remarkable history of uses in a community rich with natural splendor and a heritage of Rocky Mountain adventures dating back to the mining era that helped build America.  This building was once home to one of Durango’s early movie houses, The Gem Theater, where folks gathered for entertainment. Notable events at ‘The Gem’ include a boxing match in 1915, where a young start-up named Jack Dempsey, left the mines of Colorado to begin his now famous run as a world-renowned boxer. 

The building has evolved into more contemporary urban condominiums over the years, though everywhere the eye turns, the building’s elegant history of Victorian design are still quite evident. The entrance lobby and hallways are decorated with historic photos and documents from the area, creating vintage ambiance for visitors to take in.

Arrival at this completely updated home begins with a private, reserved, off-street parking space dedicated to this condo, which alleviates the challenges of downtown parking.  The main entrance to the building is just a few steps from the reserved parking space, and the front door is secured by coded entry for after-hours access.  Inside the Victorian era lobby, is the convenience of an elevator that delivers guests to upper floor condo with interior hallway entrance.

Entering this condo, guests are greeted by an all-new interior decor from top-to-bottom including furnishings that thoughtfully combine elements of old and new, creating a warm, comfortable and inviting space. Guests will experience the quality of this home while settling in, to contemplate the many options for activities and refresh the soul, all in the heart of the Durango Historic District.

Inside the home, guests will find a stylish, completely new kitchen, replete with modern appliances, cookware and tableware. The one-bedroom, single level floor plan includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room - with flat screen 'smart' TV providing Cable TV service, and WiFi is also supplied exclusively to this condo. A contemporary, 3/4 bath with walk-in shower bath and a bedroom suite containing a queen bed complete the floor plan in this updated condo with new-meets-old architecture.

Outside, at the rear of the building, is a gated, private patio with a gas grill and community dining & seating areas. The first floor door to this sunny spot is right down the hall from the elevator lobby on the ground level for convenient entry. The Durango & Silverton Train passes just a few feet from the patio area, providing a glimpse into what downtown living was like over 100 years past.

Outside the main lobby entrance door, is the sidewalk on W. 10th Street, about 1/2 block from Main Avenue, where travelers find themselves in the midst of Historic downtown Durango, surrounded by more restaurants per capita than some major cities plus a multitude of options for shopping, art galleries and entertainment.

The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum (The Durango Train) is just seven minutes walking distance from this very spot (five blocks). The Durango Welcome Center at the corner of 8th & Main, with an abundance of visitor information and helpful guides, is just two blocks walking distance. This is a great place to start your journey.

We’re not exaggerating when we say ‘in the heart of downtown Durango’.  Whether visiting for events, festivals, the holidays, a weekend getaway, activities at Fort Lewis College, a business trip or simply wanting to experience the excitement of a historic Victorian mining town turned tourist destination - this condo is convenient for many travelers.  Skiing and summer activities at Purgatory Resort are a scenic 30 minute drive to the north, and Mesa Verde National Park is about a 45 minute drive through the rolling foothills of Southwest Colorado.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was clean and comfortable and the location was awesome. Also with it being the very front unit, you are looking out right over main street from two windows!

Beautiful modern condo in great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. It was perfect for our family of 4, with a private bedroom, a loft space with a bed, and a pull out couch. The condo is very well located on Main Avenue, with many restaurants, shops, and the train within walking distance. The condo is in great shape and very comfortable. The hosts are very responsive (we had a question about the internet when we arrived and had an answer within 5 mins). The only slight downside is that Main Avenue can be a little loud at night so the light sleepers in my family woke up from outside noise on one of the three nights we stayed. This was not a major problem and we would definitely stay here again!
