About the property

4 Bedrooms + Loft 3 Baths 2 King Bed Master Suites each with Private Bath

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.

About Leslie Hennig

My husband, Rick and I live in Dunedin, Florida. Rick was originally from Chicago and I was from New York. We have been married for 46 years and together enjoy snow skiing, scuba divers, and traveling. We have one daughter who lives in NYC and also loves to visit Durango to ski and hike.

Leslie Hennig purchased this condo in 2004

Why Leslie Hennig chose Purgatory Resort

We love Durango and it's history as well as the surrounding towns. The mountain of Purgatory and Durango Mountain Resort are dear to our hearts. It is our home away from home with wonderful friendly people, beautiful scenery, and the night skies are the best for star gazing. The area has fun year round.

What makes this condo unique

The condo has 2 Master Suites each with King size beds and private baths. We have fully upgraded our condo for everyone to enjoy. All baths and kitchen have been upgraded.

Our condo is "ON" the ski slope best location on the mountain for skiers and snow boarders. Not just ski-in and out even better you are "ON" the ski slope. Just step off your patio and you are on the slope.

Return to the condo for lunch or breaks and be back on the slope in seconds. No elevators, plaza or roads, no hallways!!!!

The balance of the year you have a wonderful back yard to watch wildlife and enjoy the great outdoors. We have deer, marmots, chipmunks, foxes, many varieties of birds, and an occasional coyote.

Such fun to see the wild life and get back to nature.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The place could not have been better. Everything we needed the condo had including extra blankets and pillows. The kitchen, wow was equipped just like or better than home. The hiking was right at your door as was the hummingbirds coming right to the feeders on the porch. Saw a deer, a fox, chipmunks, and several marmots it was great. Don't look any further this condo is the perfect way to vacation. We will be back probably in the winter to ski as we notice the slope is literally 2' off the patio.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to write this 5 star review to help the families forward looking for a vacation rental at the resort and in Durango. We always are humbled to know that our vacationing families love our place and find it works perfectly for them. We were so excited that you saw so much wildlife which only makes the trip a little more special. Come back anytime we loved having you and your family/friends. Safe travels, Leslie

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

Leslie's place was perfect for our stay; the condo is clean and well maintained, and is nicely updated and furnished. There are ample bedrooms and bathrooms and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. We liked being snuggled up against the mountain, also. The condo has three levels with relatively steep and narrow stairs leading to each--not a problem for the able-bodied but not so great for those with handicaps. The ground floor has a bedroom with a King and attached bathroom. The Master Bedroom with another King and en suite bathroom is on the next level where the kitchen and main living area are located. The upper floor is quite nice--great views from the two bedrooms (each has a queen bed) and the shared hall bathroom is the largest of the three bathrooms. I highly recommend the condo; we hope to return next year!

Beautiful, clean, room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely gorgeous inside and out. Beds were comfy, rooms are spacious, and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were pleasantly surprised by all the fun summer activities they had at the resort! The kids and adults had a blast! We also enjoyed the Durango Silverton train and the Bar D Wranglers. They never disappoint! We loved everything about this location! Can't wait to go again!

Great Condo, great location, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We brought the kid and the dog to get out of the AZ heat. This condo has it all, location, amenities (everything you need for your stay) and only a short 2min stroll to the middle of Purgatory resort and everything it has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thank you! A joy to hear that the condo was everything you needed and more. The location is great, so close to everything, and but far enough away to relax away from the crowds. Please come back anytime we loved having your family. Our pleasure, Leslie

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! The condo is not only beautiful and comfortable but also in the best location. So close to the main resort area, trails and lifts. The condo had everything we needed, kitchen well equipped, plenty of towels and sheets. Our family enjoyed many activities in and around the resort area. Thank you Leslie & Richard for sharing your lovely mountain home! We will be back!
