What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the location of this property. We love the San Juan mountains. We enjoy hiking and backpacking in the high alpine in the summer. My husband and I have hiked to the top of Engineer Mountain and the view of Engineer at this property is very special to us. We also enjoy skiing at Purgatory Resort. It has been a very special place for us for many years and just love this entire southwest corner of Colorado. We feel blessed to be able to call it home.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home with another family. There were seven of us total in our party and we found the home expansive and well-stocked. It was a nice arrangement for two families, as there are two rooms on the first floor, a kitchen, hot tub, and living areas on the the second floor, and two adjoining bedrooms on the third floor. There was plenty of room for both families to spread out and have privacy, but also plenty of space to spend time together. The hot tub was nice and large and overlooked the ski area and mountains. The kitchen was amazing, well-stocked, and had nicer cookware than mine at home! There are a total of three fireplaces... we enjoyed gathering around the one on the 2nd floor and playing games together in the evenings. The teen-agers in our group also found it nice to have their own area to "hang out" in at times. We have spoiled ourselves in the past and stayed right on the ski slopes. To access the mountain here, you do need to walk across the highway and then a short distance to the slopes. However, it was not a problem at all (the driveway was well-sanded too) and did not seem far to walk--about as far as you might if your car were parked further away in the parking lot at DMR. A few things to be aware of... the third floor area has the two king size beds. This area is best shared by one family, as the floor plan upstairs is very open, with everyone sharing one bathroom. The two bedrooms do not offer complete privacy from one another, which is not a problem if shared by one family. The two bedrooms on the first floor have queen sized beds, but are both spacious bedrooms themselves, are private, and each have their own bathroom. Quality bedding, towels, and other materials are provided. Three of the four beds are memory foam (one of the king beds upstairs is not), which may be positive or negative, depending on your preference. Some of the guests felt they were a little too firm. Also, the tile in the home can be very slippery, especially in some areas, This led to a minor injury on the part of one of us. This may not be the rental home for elderly guests or those with balance issues. Also, if you accidentally lock yourself in the upstairs bathroom, push up on the door as you open it, and this will resolve the problem. None of these issues, however, detracted from the fact that the home was very large, beautifully decorated, well-stocked, extremely clean, and very comfortable for larger parties.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Just a clarifying note that there are 2 memory foam mattresses and 2 traditional mattresses. A King of each and a Queen of each. They are all new, high quality and one of the highlights of the home that we have new mattresses and bedding for our guests. We have treated the stairways and bathroom tile when we did renovations on this home this summer with a gritty sealer to make our home safer for guests.

A wonderful home which met all of our needs

  • 4 of 5

This large, three level home provided a warm, comfortable lodging for our children and grandchildren last week. The home is conveniently located less than a 5 minute drive to the Durango Mountain Resort & Ski area. The owner was pleasantly responsive to all of our questions. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of plates, silverware, and all types of pots and pans, two refrigerators, double ovens and a gas range. The heating systems worked fine even with the -5 degree weather outside. There are great views from almost every room of the beautiful snow covered mountains. A perfect property for a wonderful winter vacation! I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and associates.
