Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The city of Durango and Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) in southwest Colorado is an area devoted to an active outdoor lifestyle. Nestled in the San Juan National Forest, this western town is where the high desert meets the high alpine.

Blackjack Lodge sits atop sloping cliffs overlooking Lake Purgatory, with sweeping views of the Hermosa Cliffs, Spud, Engineer and Needles Mountains from its large picture windows. Surrounded by groves of pine and aspen trees, it affords complete privacy, though conveniently located just one mile south of Durango Mountain Resort.

The large, open-plan family room has stunning views, a massive wood burning, sandstone fireplace and state-of-the-art entertainment complete with Sony 51' Surround Sound TV, DVD/CD, VCR and Stereo. A second family room (or the 'Bear Den') with 2-Twin Trundle Bed, TV, DVD, a regulation-size billiard table and also a ping-pong table is located in the basement, adjacent to the fourth bedroom which is outfitted with two sets of bunk beds and the location makes it an ideal room for the kids. All king and queen beds have Modal linens and goose down comforters to ensure a cozy and comfortable night's rest!

A wonderful bonus after a day of outdoor activities is the Hot Springs Spa 6 person hot tub on the covered deck. Luxuriate in its soothing warmth while taking in the stunning lake and mountain views and cool, clean mountain air. At night, the stars seem almost touchable.

Our home is that wonderful combination of rusticity and luxury. The bedrooms are comfortable and private and the family areas are well appointed with fine leather couches. Ceiling fans in every room and radiant-heated floors make it comfortable throughout the year. Our location offers you a choice between the dozens of activities available in the area, or complete seclusion - whichever kind of vacation you seek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

McGregor,



We had a terrific week here at the Blackjack Lodge. There was plenty of snow for skiing, we even got snowed in one day however we needed the break from the slopes. The views out of all windows is fantastic. My family had a great time. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy your home.

Amazing mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

A roomy, modern, cozy, chic, playful pad. Blackjack with an ace down! Bountiful beauty in every direction. An excellent mid-winter retreat perfectly oriented for maximum play right outside the front door.

Abolutely Beutiful and a fantastic location for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and one other traveled to Purgatory this spring break and we couldn't have been happier with this home. We had nine in our party (4-adults, 5-kids ages 10-15) and the home easily accommodated us. The views from the deck are spectacular, and the location to Purgatory Resort is 5-10 minutes, 90% of which is getting out of the neighborhood.

One thing to note, you are in the mountains, and as the owner will tell you, if there is a lot of snow, you will need snow chains. We had them, but fortunately didn't have to use them.

Lastly, the owner is great to work with before and during your stay if you need anything.

We plan to return and would definitely recommend this home for your stay in Purgatory.

Beautiful Blackjack Lodge is a GEM!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am wishing I was back there right now... Gorgeous views, big and comfortable house, softest sheets, peace and quiet... This place has it all. It's only 2 minutes to the ski resort- so you can ski all day and be back soaking those frosty toes in the hot tub ASAP! We used the fireplace and cooked dinner at the house almost every night (appliances are great and they are well stocked with pots and pans). It is one of the first vacations that I've been on where I did a lot of outdoor activities, but still came back rested! Even though it was just the two of us, this place can sleep A LOT of people and has a killer gameroom with a pool table and ping pong table. We want to do another ski trip or come back in the summer with a bunch of friends. The owner is fantastic to work with and made everything so easy- We cannot wait to go back!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We loved Blackjack Lodge on our recent ski trip! It fit two families comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked. I would recommend 4 wheel drive to get to this property in the winter.

Owner's Response: Thanks Leslie for staying with us. A 4-wheel drive is required in the winder months. Mother Nature is unpredictable. Come again sometime.

Wonderful Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough about this property! I don't think we could have found a more beautiful spot. Great place for the family to get together and everyone could do whatever they wanted. Located right between Durango and Silverton, this was the perfect "home base" for all of our excursions. Definitely would recommend and would love to return to some day.
