Property description

Year round condo at Cascade Village. 1.6 miles from Durango Mountain Ski Resort (formerly Purgatory). Newly remodeled Nugget Studio. Perfect for 2-people. Complete with resort amenities.

Come enjoy the Colorado Mountains in our newly remodeled condo. Our nugget studio is the perfect couples retreat. This is one of the finest Studio's on the Mountain. It has been completely remodeled with quality craftsmanship.

The kitchen has been customized with a solid surface counter top, glass mosaic back splash and maple cabinetry. There is a built in 2-burner electric range, stainless steel refrigerator, microwave and sink.This amazing kitchen is completely stocked with everything you need to prepare all your meals. Just bring the food~!

Directly off the kitchen you will find the living room area with plenty of sitting space for relaxing in front of the fireplace after an adventurous day on the mountain (we supply the firewood). Sit and watch television on the flat screen TV with Direct Satellite Network.

When your ready to go to bed just pull down the queen size murphy bed that is cleverly disguised as a built in wall unit. The murphy bed is made out of the same custom maple cabinetry as the kitchen and bathroom cabinets.

Have an extra little one with you? No need to have a crowded bed. You will find a cot in the closet.You will be amazed how much room is in this studio suite. There is also a private balcony right off the living room area for your outdoor enjoyment.

The bathroom is fit for a queen (or king), with his and hers sinks mounted in a solid surface counter top with an accent tile back splash on a custom maple vanity. There is a separate toilet nook and a tub/shower combo complete with designer tile on the walls and floors. All the fixtures throughout the bathroom and kitchen are a quality brushed nickle finish.


Even though this is the perfect studio to hang out in, we do encourage our guest to get out and enjoy all we have to offer at the resort. You will have full use of the resort which includes: sauna, indoor heated swimming pool, indoor/outdoor hot tubs, BBQ grill with patio areas, outdoor tennis court, biking/walking paths, fitness/weight room, laundry facility & vending machine. There is also a ski rental shop and a FREE shuttle to Durango Mountain Ski Resort (Purgatory).

Red Door Vacation Rentals

Year Purchased: 2012

About: My husband & I are both natives of Colorado. We are both from the Durango area. We met in 1976 and married in 1977. We lived in Durango for 1 month and ended up moving to Aztec NM to help with a sick loved one. We always knew we wanted to move back home, but the lord had a different plan for us. Now, 35 years, 2 kids & 5 grandchildren later, we had an opportunity to purchase a small piece of our old stomping grounds. We still reside in Aztec NM, but with just a short drive, we get to take a step back in time.

Why Durango, CO, USA:
Our condo is small, but we’ve learned throughout the years that smaller can actually be quit the blessing! Not much to worry about, yet all the comforts one needs, and then some. The amenities around the resort can keep you as busy as you want to be, or just kicking back in our “Bear Cave” snuggled up to a cozy fire enjoying each others company.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The very idea of having a place to runaway to for a weekend of skiing & enjoying the beautiful San Juans, knowing there is nothing else I have to do but walk out the door and hit the slopes!
