About Sean Preston

Originally from Chicago, IL we moved to Phoenix AZ about 15 years ago. Needing a change of seasons we began searching the west for a small town that provides outdoor activities, scenic beauty and character. Durango, Colorado proved to be the perfect location. We enjoy escaping to Durango, from the real world. No matter the season, there is plenty to do in Durango and sometimes, not doing anything but sitting beside the fire is all the therapy needed.

Sean Preston purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Sean Preston chose Durango

We chose our property at BlackBear because it is perfect for the family. The home's size and layout provides something for everyone. A great room for sharing time with the whole family. A master suite with private balcony and fireplace, provides a private retreat. A loft with television, dvd player and numerous games is a kid's dream. All of this is positioned in a great neighborhood with fishing lake and hiking trails. The neighborhood is located just across from the Family Focused ski resort of Durango Mountain Resort.

What makes this townhome unique

The town home is well appointed with luxurious finishes, high quality linens and the comforts you come to expect in five star accommodations. The modern conveniences will make your stay comfortable and the use of stone and timber displays the rustic charm you expect in a mountain retreat.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Good Morning,

I'm very late in writing this but I do want to tell you that my family had such a wonderful time at your condo in Durango over Christmas. It is a lovely place and we felt so at home over that special holiday. We felt very lucky to have been able to rent such a perfect place to spend Christmas.

Many thanks,

Joan V.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 25, 2017

I was fortunate to spend a week of vacation in this wonderful mountain townhome in the San Juan Forest conveniently located between Durango and Silverton in Colorado. I was surrounded by the best possible mountain views and small lakes – it was amazing! The patio off the master bedroom had a great view of the mountains, and it was so relaxing to just sit and gaze. The location was ideal, being less than an hour to local attractions, including Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Mesa Verde National Park and Four Corners. Every morning we walked on the scenic trails and paved roads nearby and my son enjoyed the pool and water slides at the Mountain Club. City Market was close by for groceries and we were able to cook fabulous meals in the fully stocked kitchen. Overall, we had a great relaxing stay in this lovely home.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Great townhome & location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great townhome with plenty of space & amenities. We enjoyed the location, views and decor. The owners and manager were great to work with. We have stayed at over 15 condos on Durango Mountain and this one is the best value so far! Can't wait to stay again;)

Location, location location!

  • 4 of 5

The BlackBear unit was very well situated, and totally comfortable for 4 adults (two to an bedroom). The unit had good kitchen pans, and very comfortable furnishings and beds. While the write up says sleeps 6, it’s really a unit for 4 adults and maybe 2 kids.

We had a two week plus stay. The availability of the property manager was very helpful. The Purgatory Shuttle was amazing, allowing quick access to the mountain (free) and a fee for access to town. It is a long trip back down the mountain, though! (28 miles).

Great Property, Nicely appointed.

This is a great townhome in a great location. Very nicely equipped, everything that you need for a ski week. The on-demand shuttle was very convenient and made getting to and from the lifts a breeze.

Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a Nice family time in the middle of San Juan Forest. This property is in the middle of the hills between Durango and Silverton towns.

This house is spacious for 6 people, and has a spacious living room.

Has a small park near by, where my kid played well, and had nice time.

The cool part is - this house comes with a pass for the near by Mountain club in the purgatory resort, where you have a nice pool and hot tub. The kids loved the pool.

The property manager is always reachable by phone, and was helpful all along the trip
