Home, 3 Bedrooms+Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

In the winter, the horses that pull the sleighs come right by the house and go down to the resort.

Balcony House features 3 bedrooms with queen size beds.

The master bedroom is huge with its own bath and a large walk in closet. It is located on the main floor.

Also on the main floor is the very spacious open concept kitchen, dining and living rooms. The balcony is off the living room and there is a gas bbq on it.

There is also a guest bath located just off the kitchen.

The 2 guest bedrooms are located on the entry floor. There is a full bath on this floor, family room with a wet bar and great views, gas fireplace, and TV. This floor also leads out to the heated garage.

The top floor is a very large loft with 2 futons and a TV, great for video game playing, and extra sleeping.

Great house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Well cared for property is within walking distance of the main plaza, which had lots of activities available. We enjoyed starting our day on the deck, watching marmots, blue jays, humming birds, etc. Kitchen was large enough for pur group of 10. Some in our group had a hike cut short, because a bear was making his way down the mountain - never got close enough to see it though.

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this mountain retreat located at Purgatory near Durango. Nice home with everything you need. Owner was easy to work with. Not really close to the town of Durango (about 30 minutes away) but that was kind of the point. There was plenty going on at the resort steps away. Plus we were able to make the quick, yet scenic, drive up to Silverton and thoroughly enjoyed that. Highly recommend this place!

Great location and perfect size for the family.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very roomy and a perfect location for skiers to jump on a lift over to the mountain or a short walk to the village for non skiers. Home owners are very helpful and we would visit again.

We just stayed for a weekend and the house is great with being well stocked with extra bedding & kitchen supplies. Had a fantastic time, location is wonderful being close to all activities for young & old. Owners are available with text for any questions and were great to work with. Would definitely recommend for a great vacation.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience using VRBO and the process was easy and the owners were awesome. She was prompt, consise, and friendly. The house was perfect for me and my family. I had three grandchildren ages 11,3&2 and the house was safe and we all felt at home. I was impressed with the kitchen as it was fully stocked with appliances and tools.

The location was so beautiful and there were activities for all ages within walking distance. Sightseeing opportunities were ample within an hours drive or less.

I would recommend this to anyone. Hopefully I will be able to return someday soon.
