Overview

About the property

Permit 2012-110

The Purple Juniper is an updated and inviting half-duplex four blocks to Main Ave. The home faces a sunny and quiet neighborhood street. It has an open floor plan with an updated bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom is fully tiled. The kitchen has granite countertops and is equipped with everything needed to make a multi-course meal or a simple smoothie.

The kitchen and living room are connected by a granite island with three seats. Additional dining seating in the Summer is a four-seat table on the front deck. The bedrooms have a queen bed in one room and two twins in the second room. All beds are solid, plush, and comfortable. Evaporative cooling in the Summer additionally provides for restful nights.

The adjacent duplex unit's primary access and activity is to the back of the house with the vacation rental having dedicated use of the front deck and grill.

When you arrive, you will have a combination to enter the home. I am readily available to help as much as needed or leave you in privacy per your preference. You can settle in by having a cool drink on the front deck or walking a few blocks to Main Avenue to relax at one of the coffee shops or brewpubs.

In addition to downtown and Main Avenue, hiking and biking trails are also within a few blocks of the home.

About Victoria Schmitt

I moved to Durango in 2005 and work as a civil engineer for the local county. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and have since lived in Arizona and Colorado, with some time spent in West Africa and Southeast Asia. In Durango I have been involved with the Durango Dharma Center and the Durango Independent Film Festival.

Outside of work and the vacation rental, I also enjoy biking, camping, reading, and hiking, especially with my 11-year old dogs, Neutron and Kozmo.

Victoria Schmitt purchased this house in 2007

We loved Durango and loved the Purple Juniper house.

Everything about our stay was perfect. Purple Juniper house is located in a historic neighborhood in Durango. Great walking for us and for our dogs. We hope to stay there again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Within walking distance to downtown. Small, but fit our needs. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen and bath were fully stocked. There is a nice hiking trail off of 6th Ave that takes you up to the top of Fort Lewis College, for a nice morning walk.

Really wonderful stay, quiet neighborhood, walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place -- extremely ideal location within walking distance to co-op, Main Street restaurants/shopping, super quiet neighborhood with gorgeous fall leaves at the time of our stay. Really comfortable beds and well-stocked kitchen with all the basics you may need in a pinch (sugar, plastic baggies, plastic utensils). Perfect family vacation spot or couples looking for a quiet weekend away. We will be back! Thank you!

Purple Juniper is a wonderful property! It is beautifully appointed and stocked with everything you need from soft, fluffy cotton bath robes to olive oil and spices. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream and the beds are quite possibly the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Beyond that, it's all about location. It is 4 short blocks to downtown Durango, a lovely and historic area filled with great restaurants and shopping, and 1 block away from Hometown Pizza. ( I made many a late night run to this fine establishment.) We loved our home away from home so much that we added 2 extra nights to our original stay.

The owner, Victoria, is gracious, informative, and extremely accessible and responsive. We will be back!
