Property description

Late Summer Special!! Take $100 off the normal $450 nt rate for late summer season!!!

One of the truly rare Colorado vacation finds is the entrancing Purgatory Point House. There are only a few homes in Durango that can offer a mountain vacation home where you not only have incredible views of a lake AND mountains plus a creek that runs right through the property!! Everywhere you look from this over 300 sg ft deck the views will enthrall you.

Enjoy morning coffee or family dinners on this deck and the mountain serenity of this heavily wooded, 2 acre site will envelop you. No traffic, no crowds. Just the sounds of those heavenly mountain breezes in the pines, song birds and rushing Cascade Creek are heard in your mountain hideaway. Soak under the stars in the hot tub after an exhilarating day skiing or hiking where no street lights interfere with the clear mountain skies. Take the short hike down to the Cascade Creek and enjoy high mountain fishing. But this just the outside!

Step into the great room of this spacious 2800 sq ft home and your eyes are immediately drawn to the wall of windows over looking the beautiful Electra Lake. This incredible view can also be enjoyed while cooking and enjoying family dinners in the kitchen/dining areas.

This beautifully appointed great room offers a luxurious southwest motif.
The living room with its large entertainment center with flat screen T.V. (satellite) is a great place to gather the family for movies/conversation and just enjoying each other. Or snuggle in front of the cozy wood stove (with glass front) on a frosty night. The open kitchen/dining area is spacious and also enjoys the incredible views.

Step up to the loft/game area where there is additional place for the kids to watch T.V., play games or watch movies. There is also a fooseball table and game table for family fun. A quality queen sofa bed provides additional sleeping for 2. This loft is so private it is essentially another bedroom!

One of the two master suites is on the main floor and this fabulous room enjoys its own private deck and hot tub. The adjoining tiled bath offers a walk -in shower, oversized tub and double sink. The third bedroom with a set of bunks (double on the bottom/twin on the top) and a double futon is perfect for the kids. Another full bathroom with tub/shower combination across the hall and the laundry room rounds out this main floor. A private office is available for you IF YOU MUST work during your visit and offers WiFi/DSL.

Upstairs the second master bedroom with king bed offers an attached tiled bath with walk in shower plus a tub. Beautiful, unique antique shutters are part of its attractive decor.

Approximately ½ miles away is Lake Purgatory where you are welcome to fish off its banks (or bring your canoe/kayak.)

A short 3 minute drive takes you to the Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) where this winter sports mecca is also a wonderful summer vacation destination. The area comes alive with scenic chair lift rides, alpine slides, bungee trampolines, climbing walls, music festivals, and world class mountain biking (bike rentals available). You can even do a nature trek with a llama or put the kids in “kids’ camp for a day of fun filled activities. The mountain views are incredible from the beautiful village where all the shops/restaurants are decked out with the summer flower finery.

Dine outdoors at the brand new Purgy’s restaurant where you can enjoy the mountain views and perhaps enjoy a music concert.

Downtown Durango is a easy and beautiful 25 minute drive where you can enjoy white water rafting, world class fly fishing or golfing. Or take a ride on the famous Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to an old mining town. Visit gold mines, ghost towns or go jeeping on incredible mountain passes!. Rodeos, street fairs and over 30 shops and restaurants all add to your Durango experience. Or just read a good book on this home’s incredible deck

In winter Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) is home to some of the best nordic and alpine skiing in the Rockies. How about a romantic sleigh ride or snowmobile into the majestic mountains. A wonderful tubing hill, snowshoe tours and even dog sled rides are available. Strolling the village’s shops or dining outdoors in front of the fire pit at Purgys and watching the skiers come down the mountain is a wonderful way to spend a winter’s day even if you don’t ski.

Serenity and beauty surround you!
