Enjoy the year round beauty of the magnificent Rocky Mountains from the deck of our 5 bedroom 5 bath condo located at the base of Purgatory Ski Resort. Purgatory is a premier ski area in the San Juan National Forest just 27 miles from the charming town of Durango.
Summer activities are numerous in the area: hiking, biking, fishing, four wheeling, jeep rides and rafting on the Animas River. A visit to Mesa Verde National Park and a ride on the historic Narrow Gauge Railroad to Silverton are exciting daily activities. Don't forget your golf clubs. Dalton Ranch, Hillcrest Golf Club and Glacier Club provide beautiful mountain golfing. If you are a music lover, a concert at Music in the Mountains is a "must", just 5 minutes from the front door! In addition, Purgatory has many daily activities such as zip line, alpine slide, hamster bubble, panning for gold, and a bounce house for the little ones.
Winter activities are at your front door. Ski in, ski out for your first run of the day. And while you are here try a ski bike, snow mobile, sleigh ride, or cross country skiing. At the end of the day of winter fun, enjoy a soak in our private hot tub on our private deck.
Our vacation home is nicely decorated and very comfortable. The living area has wood flooring throughout and boasts a ski closet for easy storage and boot heaters to keep your feet warm and dry.
We have 3 large bedrooms with king sized beds and attached baths. The fourth bedroom has twin beds and also has an attached bath. The fifth bedroom has a twin bed with a trundle and an adjacent bath with shower and tub, perfect for the little ones! All the baths have large tiled showers and radiant heat floors.
Our large deck overlooks the Needles Mountain Range and the views are breathtaking. Plenty of seating, a large gas grill and a gas heater allow you to enjoy the mountain atmosphere year round.
The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, cookware, small appliances (coffee pot, slow cooker, hand mixer, toaster) and plenty of storage for all your food prep needs. If you don't want to cook it is a five minute walk to Purgatory Village and its many amenities. Purgys,, Creekside Grill, the Deli, and the Bear Bar are available for food and beverages. Just a mile away is Sows Ear, an excellent choice for dinner, and it has a good casual mountain atmosphere with wonderful food and beverages. Durango, a short drive down the mountain, provides a huge choice of restaurants from BBQ to sushi!
Private parking includes two spaces in an open garage and one space in the paved driveway; accessibility is simple and easy. Four wheel drive is not essential but recommended during the winter months.
Come join us and see for yourself the magic of the Colorado mountains!
