About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to our 'Mountain Home' in one of Colorado's finest all season resorts and discover the magic at Durango Mountain Resort. Gather around our cozy fireplace while enjoying the beautiful views and begin making memories with your family and friends. Sit and relax in our condo while viewing many mountain activities, skiers going by outside and the high-speed 6 passenger chair lift going up the mountain.

Remodel just finished. All new kitchen cabinets, stainless steel applicances, granite counter tops, bath vanities, jetted tub, new mattessses, and professional decorated.

Winter Season: Our mountain home is not just a true 'Ski-In and Ski-Out' but we are directly on the ski slope (Yellow Brick Road - Beginer Slope). Ours is one of only 12 Edelwiss condos directly on the ski slope. No hauling your equipment across the parking lots or in the elevators. The fluffy powder (260 foot annual average) is your invitation to the best skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. Then, at the end of the day, ski to your covered patio, step out of your gear, and step into your vacation hide-away.

The non-skier will have fun and excitement with snowmobile tours, dog sled rides, ice skating, sledding, riding the snow coaster (tubing), watch the downhill skiers and snowboards come down right outside your windows, and the incredible stargazing night tours. Of course, there is always great shopping, fine dining, art galleries, and the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Spring, Summer, and Fall: This is the time to explore deserted ghost towns, Mesa Verde Indian Ruins, enjoy Colorado's cascading waterfalls, wildflowers, and breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains. If golf is your game, it can only improve with the altitude (balls fly 14% farther) at the three championship courses in the area. The resort offers family ropes course, water runners, zipline, alpine slide, mountain bike trails and uplift, bungee trampoline, mechanical bull, climbing wall, miniature golf, and disc golf.

Our condo is perfect for your family vacation, reunion, or just fun with your group of friends. This spacious, four bedroom, three bath, luxury condo sleeps ten people comfortably, and has covered parking at your front door. Decorator furnished in natural Rocky Mountain style with art from local artists, and a warm relaxing wood burning fireplace (wood provided). Everyone is charmed by this tastefully decorated condo with a full-size kitchen, a romantic master suite, and all the comforts of home.

Whether you want to be in the heart of the action on the mountain, use our home for your base of operation to explore the Durango area, or if you just want to escape to the peace and quiet. Our mountain home is just the right place for your group.

The condo was everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

This condo looks even better in person! Everything was extremely clean and the home was designed so nicely. The condo is right on the slope and we had a great time exploring the resort. Durango just a short drive is a great town and it was nice coming back to a peaceful home with a gorgeous view of the mountain. Would love to make this a regular trip and keep coming back to stay at Leslie's home! She made it so easy to book our stay and gave us all the information we needed as first time visitors, all the hard work was done for us! Thanks for a great trip!!

Great spot well stocked kitchen, clean, roomy

  • 5 of 5

We liked it. Just wish we had more snow. Please keep in mind that this location, which is where the ski resort is, is around 30 min from downtown Durango. You will need transportation.

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a great time and thank you for reaching out to me via text during your stay. It is always nice to hear from our families. Snow, yes there can always be more! Thank you for the blurb about the driving distance it should help other families in the future. Hope to see you again soon. Leslie

Another wonderful family holiday

Once again the stay in Durango exceeded our expectations. This townhouse is perfectly located on the slopes with easy access to the main ski areas. The townhouse is beautifully maintained with all the modern conveniences. We have rented from this owner for many years now and have always been pleased with the friendly and very responsive feedback. Thank you so much for another wonderful, unforgettable, family Christmas in Durango.

The Best Condo on the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and always come back to our home away from home. We have adopted the condo as ours. This time we were surprised with a new bedroom set for the master bedroom. Great addition! We loved the fall colors and had a very relaxing time. Next visit will be to ski (need to email Leslie for a date). We love the location of the condo which is ON the slope and is the best on the mountain. You literally walk outside, put your skis on, and ski to the lift. Return for a break you just ski to the condo. Can't wait! Thank you for letting us stay again we always enjoy the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the positive comments and the 5 stars. We will always welcome you and your family as you take care of our condo as if it was yours which we so appreciate. Your comments will help the families looking to rent here at the resort. Thank you!!! As always, Safe Travels, Leslie
