Welcome to Purgatory Point Lodge, our magnificent home in the mountains!
This home offers a rare and exceptional location for your mountain retreat with the most extraordinary views of Electra Lake, the Hermosa Cliffs and the entire Animas Valley. Feel at home in this beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath home situated on two beautiful wooded acres offering privacy and seclusion with the Little Cascade Creek running through the property. Relax in rustic elegance as the sounds of a rushing waterfall, rustling pine trees and humming birds fill the air. Explore the outdoors right from your back deck or hike north along the creek to Columbine Lake and south to Electra Lake. Fish from the banks of Cascade Creek or our beautiful Columbine Lake, both do not require permits and yes, they have fish!
Enjoy watching sunsets over the spectacular Hermosa Cliffs while relaxing in the private hot tub or while sipping cocktails listening to the waterfall from the back deck. If you are lucky, you may see an elk, deer, wild turkeys, quail, muskrats, beavers, raccoons, and other cute critters. There have been reported sightings of moose nearby, but not from the back deck as of yet.
Cozy up by the fire in the wood burning stove in the spacious main living area while watching the flat screen TV or stream movies over the internet WiFi. The kids will be content with their own TV and gaming center upstairs in the gameroom/bedroom. Our home may sleep as many as 10 people comfortably with the following bed configuration:
Master 1 (1st floor) – King
Master 2 (2nd floor) – King
Bedroom 3 (1st floor) - Bunk Bed (single over double) + Futon (double)
Bedroom 4/Gameroom (2nd floor) - Queen pull-out sofa/bed
Living Area (1st floor) – Queen pull-out sofa/bed
Purgatory Point offers privacy and seclusion nestled in the spectacular San Juan Mountains. Located 25 minutes north from Durango and only 2 miles from the ski resort, amenities abound. The Sows Ear Restaurant located less than 2 miles away, boasts 4 star dining and a lively bar. The Old Schoolhouse Cafe located 5 miles away, serves the best pizza and calzones this side of Italy…well that’s our opinion anyway! There is always something to do at the ski resort with summer and fall activities for the entire family. Our mountain home has all the comforts of home combined with breathtaking views. This will truly be your home away from home.
*****4-Wheel Drive/AWD REQUIRED in winter (Thanksgiving through mid-March)*****
Our home is tucked away off a beautiful winding road which is regularly plowed in the winter. You will be driving on packed snow which can become icy, especially on steep hills. Chains may be necessary if you are driving an AWD SUV with high performance tires.
