If you're planning a trip to beautiful Durango, this dog-friendly vacation home is the perfect home base during your stay with easy access to in-town convenience and year-round outdoor activity.
Situated in the San Juan Mountains near Mesa Verde National Park, this home is half-way between Durango and Purgatory Resort, and about seven miles from beautiful Electra Lake.
The inside of this home is spacious and welcoming with high ceilings, plentiful large windows, and an open-concept design. The living room features classic leather furnishings, which invite you to sit back and relax. Get comfy with a fire in the wood stove, and gaze out at the beautiful spruce, pine, and aspen forest outside. Catch a movie or your favorite team on the flatscreen cable TV, which comes with a DVD player. And if you absolutely have to bring work with you, there's a nearby desk, and free WiFi access is available, too.
The fully equipped kitchen, complete with standard appliances, including a dishwasher, and other extras - like a microwave, coffee maker and a variety of cooking utensils - has plenty of storage and counter space, providing the cooks in your group with everything they'll need to create delicious snacks and meals. In the summer, if you're in the mood for a cookout, make a hearty meal on the smoker/grill on the deck, and enjoy it along with beautiful views.
This three-bedroom (plus loft), two-and-a-half bath home accommodates up to eight guests, as well as two dogs for a small nightly fee. The downstairs master bedroom boasts a queen Sleep Number bed and full attached bath. The other bedrooms are on the second floor: one has a queen bed, and the other has a double bed. There's also a twin trundle bed in the loft, which features a curtain system that creates privacy and is a fun space for kids.
If you visit in the summer, drive or hike to Electra Lake for beautiful scenery and top-notch fishing. Downtown Durango features a diverse slate of options to fill your day. Visit the Animas Museum, float down the Animas River, or take your pick of more than 70 shops and restaurants/bars. Enjoy a variety of street fairs and music festivals. Catch a ride on the narrow gauge train for a stunning, scenic trip to Silverton and back.
Winter offers snow enthusiasts all the outdoor activity and fun they want. Whether you're a snowboarder or a cross-country or alpine skier, Purgatory Resort has suitable terrain for everyone. And for a change of pace, take a sleigh ride or head out into the backcountry for a snowshoeing trek.
You're sure to have a memorable and enjoyable time when you come to Durango, and staying in this comfortable, roomy vacation home will only enhance your experience.
