About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


This is a very comfortable slopeside studio with great views of the ski slopes and base area. It was completely remodeled in 2005 with all new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, and furniture. There is a full kitchen including full size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher with all necessary cooking and eating utensils. Great for a couple or bring your children and they can sleep on the two twin size hide-a-beds. This unit is on the top floor so it is very quiet.

When you are ready to go out, pick up your skis from the private ski locker and walk 200 yards to the high speed 6 pack lift that will take you to the top of Durango Mountain. Enjoy the typically quiet slopes on your skis or snow board. Take beginner to expert ski or board lessons for yourself and have your children learn from top notch teachers.

The Bears Den is available to watch your infants and toddlers while you ski. At the end of the day, relax at the brand new Purgatory Lodge at the base or enjoy the shops. For more private relaxation, return to the condo and enjoy the views, watch a DVD or VHS movie or surf the internet on free broadband.

For something different, go snowmobiling in the backcountry from walking distance to the condo or go tubing at the base of the mountain in the afternoon and evening. You can cross the street to the Nordic center for miles of cross country trails. If you're really adventurous, you can sign up for snowcat skiing that leaves from the main lodge.

There is definitely plenty for everyone to enjoy. Park your car when you arrive and relax. Everything you need is within a few minutes walking distance.

Summer internship in Durango

  • 5 of 5

My son stayed at this lovely condo while he was experiencing his first adult working summer. He enjoyed the convenience to Durango, the scenic view going into and out of town--he has a great story about coming upon that which he believed was a mother moose and two kids standing in the middle of the road when driving home one evening, and the proximity to hiking, which he was able to do almost every weekend. There is a rocking restaurant down the hill toward the city also! We would try to rent again were another need in the area to arise.

It feels important to add that the owner was responsive to all of my queries (an overbearing parent), which helped with our ultimate decision. It was great to feel that our son was in a safe place over the summer. Thanks, Rick!

Perfect location for small family ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Condo had everything we needed. So convenient to be able to walk to the chair lift. We even came back to condo for lunch while on the slopes. Beautiful area! We hope to visit again. Thank you again for opening your condo to our family. Rick provided all info we needed. We had a fabulous dinner at the Sow's Ear one night.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The location is excellent. The unit is tight for four adults but was fine for a three day stay. The unit was well stocked. The pull-outs are uncomfortable as others have mentioned. They are in need of replacement. The owner was very responsive with all needs. I was seriously injured on the slopes and the owner offered to let us stay for a few days at no charge. We couldn't take him up on it but it was a kind gesture. Overall, it was a very good value and you can't go wrong renting from such kind and decent people. If you brought some single mattress pads for the pull-outs, you'd probably be in great shape.

Nice Ski Condo

  • 5 of 5

Nice condo, good location. We had 4 late-teens stay there, with parents nearby. They enjoyed the space, and slept comfortably on the bed and two pullouts. Location is handy enough to the slopes,being in the 2nd row of buildings off the slopes. A short walk to the lift or village. Condo was clean, comfy and had all we needed.
