Why Grace Washburn chose Columbine Lake (Purgatory Lake Drive)
First, the question of why Colorado? Well that is a self answering question. If you have ever even seen a picture of this beautiful state, you having probably dreamed of living or even just visiting us. It was apparent to each one of the owners that they could see themselves spending half their life on this mountain. Once you step foot on our land and our property, all of your questions will vanish as to why we chose this place.
What makes this House unique
The house in and of itself is simply magic. The privacy of this cabin is the main draw. The massive Birmingham patio will be the first thing that catches your eye. So much room for your children to play; and you won't have to worry about them running off. There is plenty of room to grill, hot tub, and even just sit out and enjoy the Durango sun. Right off the deck is the vast and beautiful woods, the hike that you have been meaning to take is in your backyard! Inside you are immediately drawn to the floor to ceiling stone fireplace that accompany a wall of windows, you will never miss that first fall of snow! The house is quite open-spaced but don't let that fool you, once you hop in your bed with the fireplace softly crackling in the distance you will never felt more cozy and comfortable.

Secluded, private, and peaceful stay
The house was well maintained, clean, and provided plenty of fresh linens. The huge outdoor deck was a wonderful place to have a glass of wine after our outings to Durango, Silverton, and Ouray. Loved the Ore House in Durango for dinner and the Million Dollar Highway is a must to travel. Don't skip Box Canyon Falls while in Ouray or Mesa Verde National Park outside of Durango. The house is located about halfway between Silverton and Durango - great location but I would recommend taking lots of snacks and things to cook as you're about 40 minutes out of Durango (restaurants, etc.). Grace was very helpful and responded quickly to text if needed.
Super nice property, comfortable, spacious, lots to look at and do around the house. It was an very relating, therapeutic stay at this property.
The place was a perfect spot for a relaxing weekend for our group. It had everything we needed to cook meals, including 2 grills. The house is filled with a lot of fun and quirky items. The views are beautiful and the hot tub was wonderful. It's about 40 minutes to downtown Durango. Only real complaint was the Internet kept dropping, but that gave us more opportunity to spend quality time together.
Everything you could ask for...awesome!
Just as advertised, an amazing cabin with complete solitude and tranquility. We sat in the hot tub every night and gazed at the stars with nothing but peace an quiet, an awesome experience!!
AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING
What a relaxing and peaceful four day stay! The house felt so much like home. We had everything we needed. Lots of room inside, cozy living room, spacious kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and the outside deck offered a gorgeous view that included a deer visitor one morning. At the end of the day of sight seeing it was great to relax in the jacuzzi. We can't say enough about this beautiful home away from home except we look forward to our next visit.
Beautiful, Private and Perfect!
What a wonderful cabin! Private and secluded but close to anything you want to do whether it's breakfast in Downtown Durango, night life, shopping, Hiking etc. We enjoyed the beautiful wrap around wooden deck which had a wonderful Hot Tub/spa for 6 - 8 people along with beautiful and comfortable patio furniture, 2 BBQ Grills, chairs, ice chests etc. We hiked behind the property where there is a beautiful lake and the Animus River is; all I can say is wow! We also Golfed at a wonderful golf course and the weather was amazing. The Cabin is very well appointed with dishes, pots pans, plenty of spices, condiments, coffee, appliances etc. The property is very well maintained; they provide plenty of bedding, towels etc. I could really go on and on, we did not need to think of anything as it was already thought of and provided. The property was very clean and well maintained; the decor was lovely and modern with the perfect touch of personality. We cannot wait to plan our next get away and hope to stay a bit longer - we were there for 4 nights and we wanted to extend it was so lovely. I would highly recommend staying here if you are heading into this area of beautiful Colorado.
A hop, skip, and a jump from our home is one of the most beautiful and fun attractions in town, the Durango and Silverton railroad! In the summer it is a beautiful and scenic route to check out our beautiful state. In the winter it turns into the magical Polar Express! Your children and the rest of your family will have so much fun on this new adventure. CHAINS AND SNOW TIRES MAY BE NECESSARY.
