Location

Car: Recommended

So Much to do in beautiful Durango! Outdoor activities abound in every season and our location at Durango Mountain Resort is a perfect base. Winter snow brings skiing, sledding, mogul, cross country and snowboarding opportunities. Spring thaw is great for hiking, picknics, fishing,mountain biking and photography. In summer add white water rafting, Pool time, tennis, horseback riding, rock wall climbing and golf. As the Fall colors burst on the scene enjoy 'Music in the Mountains', cruise the downtown art galleries, explore the old mining towns of Silverton and Ouray, hike the waterfall on the drive up. Year-round ride the Durango-Silverton Railroad, enjoy the heated pool, dine in the vast array of great restaurants in Durango, work out in the fitness center or relax in our 2 person jacuzzi bath with travertine walls. Don't forget about enjoying a steaming cup of coffee on our balcony or patio, watching the sunrise over the mountains from our Master bed, or snuggling by the fireplace

Golf: Just a 15 minute drive south to Golf Course at Tamarron/ Glacier Club

Ski: We are just a 3-5 Minute walk to the main 3 ski lifts. Our Condo is a 1 minute walk to the New purgatory Lodge and the lifts are just behind the lodge. Our Condo's View Side has unobstructed views of the Needles Mountains (pine trees, but no buildings in front of us!) from 2 levels and our entry side has designated parking on Sheol street. We have a ski locker outside in a large covered entry area. Each condo in our building has a separate outdoor entrance, with no hallways to tromp through.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: If you've yet to be completely enamored with Durango; it only takes once! We fell in love with Durango mountain our first visit; and purchased 'Slope Side Romance by the Waterfall' a few months later. The refreshing mountain climate and charming down-town genuinely offer year-round fun for everyone. Nearly a decade ago, we left satisfying careers in the US as a high school teacher and commercial builder; to start a custom building business in Costa Rica. We love USA! dearly, even more so after living abroad; yet were drawn by the sense of adventure and lack of traffic jams. We miss the US greatly, and have come to cherish Durango mountain as a gathering place for family, and an escape from Costa Rica's heat. CR's beaches are stunning for vacations, ha ha; yet quite sweltering while out working. The intensity of the tropical heat makes one want to stay immobile on a beach blanket or wet in the ocean; whereas the refreshing mountain climate inspires family activity! Our young daughter reminds us weekly that she wants to go to Durango for horseback riding, hiking, skiing or dance class at Bella's. Due to living in a rural coastal area with limited amenities; we truly appreciate Durango's down-town area: the arts, great eats, festivals, churches, parks, charming shops, the 'choo choo'! On the mountain we love: horses, rock hopping streams, Stunning hiking vistas, breathtaking lakes, fishing, the scent of the trees, the surprise snow in early May, looking out at the mountains and feeling like time has stopped. Our hearts are torn between the tropical beauty and responsibility of loyal building employees in Costa Rica; and the many opportunities that Durango offers for raising children. While we dream about moving to Durango in the coming years; we want guests to thoroughly enjoy our home. We have worked to create an ambiance that we hope our guests will also create memories in, and want to call their Durango 'home away from home' each year.

Why the Owner Chose Durango, CO, USA:
Upstairs Views. Downstairs Views. Balcony and Patio. Corner Unit Views. The Waterfall next to us. Exterior Entrance without Hallways. Oversize Jacuzzi Tub for together time. Easy Walk to Main Lifts and Bunny Slope Tunnel. Stroll to morning Starbucks in the Plaza, Refreshing Mountain Temperatures in Summer, Views of the Aspens Turning Color in Fall! So close to sooooo many lakes and Streams for hiking, drawing and pick-nicks. Perfectly easy to drive down-town as often as we like to enjoy the Historic district and arts. Just as easy to take a fall or summer adventure day to Silverton or Ouray.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Lovingly Upgraded; we have spent many vacations on remodel projects, and hired a few out. Built in the early 70's, East Rim are one of few resort buildings that feel homey (only 8 units) and have exterior entrances (Hubby takes issue with condo hallways, ha ha). Our building is extra special as it is set into the cliff-side beside the waterfall, and down below the street level. Inside we opted for a mix of amber Bruce distressed hardwood flooring, slate and travertine. In addition to flooring and the kitchen, all lighting, fixtures and design elements were hand picked. We strive to care for our vacation rentals as if they were our full-time residence. We hope when guests head home; you'll remember your inside ambiance as much as the fun on the mountain.
