Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived, the place looked and smelled like it had just been cleaned. Nicest Hot Tub I've even been in, and an amazing view. You can see the 550 highway, but its far enough away you can't really hear the traffic or be seen. The rest of the view is mountains and just stunning.

We had ten people total, two families with two kids each and a couple (grandparents). Tons of room. Our teenage boys loved the "teen cave" with the twin beds. My 15 year old used the loft sofa sleeper and loved it. We were there 3 days. There are 3 bathrooms, which worked for our group, but something to keep in mind.

The kitchen plates, bowls, pans, everything was supplied and so nice - nicer than my home! We loved looking out those gorgeous windows, and saw beaver, deer and tons of squirrels and chipmunks. Nicest hot tub I've even been in, water was very clean and clear. Sitting in the hot tub on the back porch, wonderful view of the woods - we saw a deer while sitting in there.

It is a good 30 minute trip to Durango, so be aware of that when planning. Although we didn't go this trip, it is probably about the same distance to Silverton (a great little town). We all loved it, didn't want to leave, and hope to stay again!

Perfect big mountain house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 3 families! Gorgeous Windows on every wall in the kitchen/great room made for a perfect view of the snow & mountains. Eating area was perfect for our large group & the garage was super convenient for snow gear. We used the hot tub every evening & the laundry room was perfect for drying our wet/snowy clothes. Great bathroom access for all the bedrooms, and plenty of separate living space for all ages in our group. A convenient 1 mile drive to Purgatory ski resort, and right across from a great restaurant. Perfect house - we would definitely rent this property again!

Thanksgiving in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family that included 11 people, with 3 children enjoyed cooking Thanksgiving dinner, playing cards,building snowmen, sledding and skiing. The house was clean and tidy. My only want would have been a nice t.v. and shades for the basement.

Beaver Pond Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed by the amenities of the house. This is a 4 bedroom with 2 full living areas and a game room with bunk beds. The view from the house in all directions was breathtaking. We could see snow in little valleys on the tops of the mountains out the front windows. Pricing was very reasonable for such a large house.

Beaver Pond Lodge Durango

  • 5 of 5

We visited Aug 2015 with 6 adults, 3 grandchildren 2,4, & 6. The Lodge is better than the pictures show. Garage was a bonus, it protected the cars during a mild hail. House was clean and kitchen was well designed. Beautiful views from large windows with deer visiting around the house nightly. Great location between Durango and Silverton.

Great stay, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a short weekend of skiing, and this place was perfect! We had a group of 10 and there was plenty of space for sleeping. The house/cabin was in great condition and had everything we needed; it was super comfortable and offered great views, even better than the pictures. We really enjoyed the spacious hot tub as well. The location couldn't have been better -- just down the street from the ski resort, so we didn't have to wake up extra early to arrive to the slopes on time. And, at the end of the day, we didn't have to trek our tired selves back to the house -- it was right there! We will definitely be back!
