Black Bear 110 was perfect

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was the perfect place for our family of 5 (3 teenagers and 2 adults) who love Durango and Purgatory. The location was great for the trip to Silverton, OOray & Telluride as well...which I highly recommend if the passes are open. The townhouse location at the base of the hill gave us easy access to the bunny slope and tubing area, while the shuttle gave us pickup/drop off at the mountain village. The DMC was a wonderful touch with elite access to the apres' ski area, spa and Purgy's Slopeside Bar and restaurant. We stayed from Christmas to New Years and enjoyed the town with all the shops and restaurants and then watched the fireworks over the mountain from the house. The house was equipped with everything needed to make your stay comfortable. Gas fireplaces, Board games, wifi, cable and a fully equipped kitchen made our stay even more successful. I highly recommend this property!!!!

Perfect place for a home base, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Loved Purgatory-- near Durango but felt like we got away from it all. Great Colorado decor, high end appliances, comfortable and cozy feel. Kids loved the pool and workout space. Great hiking nearby. 3rd bedroom is a loft and hot for sleeping. Also, road noise was a bit distracting if windows were open.

Very clean and just as pictured.

Only sownside was the twin bedroom was very hot and stuffy. Maybe two tower fans so one can blow on each bed. We could have used additional fans. Great experience and place to stay.

Great Quality, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear (across from Purgatory) is an excellent summer-vacation location. Although it is 25 minutes from Durango, the Purgatory summer activities and distance to Silverton, made for an excellent middle-ground location.

The unit at 110 Black Bear was well appointed and roomy. We had four adults and two kids and everyone had plenty of room. The garage was a pleasant surprise as was the out-door BBQ area.

Very pretty setting with the mountains in the distance.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Black Bear 110. Nice and cozy with the cabin look and the fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom. The mountains made an awesome backdrop. Got to experience a light snow along with the beautiful fall color on the aspen trees.
