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 Southwest

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.

  • 5 of 5

The owners went above and beyond to make it seem like home away from home. Loved the log cabin feel with the fireplaces and all the wood furniture. Very spacious for my family of 5 adults. Thank you for allowing us to make wonderful memories. Thanksgiving along with the snow, made for some perfect pictures. We will Definelty be back.

We had a great time at the condo! It is a beautiful area and our timing was perfect for the fall colors. The jeep trails were awesome and the condo worked out perfect as a base camp. We look forward to doing it again.

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Black Bear in mid-August. Sean was very accommodating and quick to respond to all of our inquiries, and the townhome lives up to all of the pictures. In addition, it was nice to be close to Durango but up in the mountains. Our one complaint was that we needed the windows open at night (no AC) and there was a considerable amount of road noise from 550. This wouldn't be an issue at all in the winter but is a consideration in the summer. We would definitely stay at the townhome again, but we would be more likely to do so in the winter.

We had a wonderful time! The townhouse was beautiful and well - equipped for comfort and cooking.

  • 5 of 5

The hiking trails were close and enjoyable. My children loved fishing at the small lake and I liked that they could walk to it. The beaver family was also fun to watch. Purgatory resort, across the street, was also fun for the whole family for summer activities. Durango has some wonderful restaurants and shops. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you Heidi, we are so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay. Fishing at the lake is so much fun, and surprisingly very good. We hope you come back and see us again. You should check us out it in the fall. It is absolutely beautiful. Sean and Jennifer
