Family-friendly alpine home w/ hot tub near Electra Lake - 2 dogs welcome!

Whether you're planning your next family retreat, a much-needed getaway with friends, or simply looking for the perfect spot for your outdoor-loving crew to relax, this Durango home has it all! Boasting a stress-melting private hot tub, tree-lined views, and a prime location, fun will always be at your fingertips. And it's dog friendly, too!

Set less than seven miles from Purgatory Resort, less than 22 miles from Durango, and a half-mile from the picturesque Electra Lake, you and your crew won't have to go far for fun.

Spacious and homey, this contemporary alpine home features a large main living area with room for everyone. Check out what's on cable, or pop in a DVD to make it a movie night on the flatscreen HDTV. Grab a book and cuddle up by the warmth of the wood-stove while music plays on the stereo.

Grab a glass of wine, or maybe a local microbrew while you take in the stunning tree-lined view from your deck. Snap a few pictures of the surrounding nature and then connect to the WiFi to send them to your friends back at home. Use the outdoor grill to cook up your fresh catch and admire the mountain views.

If grilling isn't your thing, the fully equipped kitchen features a charming breakfast nook, plenty of counter space, and a dishwasher to take care of cleanup. Eat at the dining room table, the breakfast nook, or take your plates outside to watch the stars come out. After dinner, enjoy a soak in the private hot tub.

When it's time to turn in, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home will easily play host to seven guests. Two dogs are also welcome for a small nightly fee. In the master bedroom, you'll be treated to a soft king-size bed and en suite, complete with a jetted tub. The second bedroom has two extra-long twin-size beds that can convert to another king-size bed. The third room has a twin-over-double bunk bed perfect for your youngsters. This home also offers a private washer and dryer, so you can pack light.

During the winter you'll have a world-class offering of snow-filled fun close-by at Purgatory Resort. Explore the backcountry courses while the beginners in the group get a few pointers from the instructors at the Snowsports School. Head into Durango for dining later.

In the warmer months, you can take a quick hike to the beautiful banks of Electra Lake, or visit Mesa Verde National Park. Rent a boat or explore the whole lake in a kayak or on a SUP board, or try rafting the Animas River. For great views but less work, hitch a ride on the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Spend you're days exploring the trails, shredding some fresh powder, or simply catching up with a good book on the deck when you book your stay at this Colorado getaway.

This home was beautiful. Better than expected.

This house is the perfect location for those who like to be secluded but yet close enough to Durango for shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Electra lake is beautiful and a very short drive from the house. The house has perfect sized rooms and the kitchen is very functional and well equipped for everything you need. Sitting out on the porch and use of the hot tub was perfect and relaxing. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again in the home.

This home was clean, and well cared for. Open and spacious. Plenty of space for our family, including our two dogs! It was easy to get comfortable. Very close to skiing/snowboarding. Also quiet. Very nice neighborhood for walking dogs. We enjoyed the beautiful wood stove in the living room during our stay (very efficient). There is also a hot tub that we never made it too....next time!

The house itself is nice and it could be a really nice place to stay. However, most of the accommodations are what I would consider to be "low" quality. The mattresses are either older or are new but a low level mattress and they are hard, I travel a lot and am used to firm mattresses in many hotels but these are beyond firm. The bath towels and linens are of the same quality as a lower grade hotel. The couches are nice but also seem to be somewhat old and therefore not really very comfortable. There are ample dishes but, all of the pans are older and all scratched up and the utensils are limited as well. The house is located in the mountains but, it is in a neighborhood with neighbors all around. There is a really nice deck around the house but, no Deck furniture. If you plan to rent this house be prepared to take or buy everything you will need including toilet paper as you are only given limited amounts. Also, there is a sign at the front door that tells you "No Shoes Allowed" so be prepared to stand and remove your shoes when you enter the house as there are no benches there in the entry foyer for you to sit on to remove them. Again, this is a nice house and while we did enjoy our stay here, it just didn't give us that "sense of home" feeling that other houses we have rented in other places have. Maybe our expectations were too high.
Manager response:

Our local staff will share this review with the Homeowner and discuss possible upgrades that can be made to the home. We use photos as well as a virtual tour to give our guests the best idea of the home, it's furnishings, and it's surroundings.

From the moment we arrived we felt at home and totally relaxed.The decks were great we spent sooo much time outside enjoying the scenery,

My daughter lives close by but we wanted a get away that she could enjoy as well. What a convenient location to both Durango and Pergatory Ski Resort! Cabin was very clean and very professionally run. This fully stocked cabin offered all that we needed. Will definitely call again, next time we are in the area.

The cabin was great! When we arrived, it was clean, fully stocked, and there was even a gift basket for us. There were many small details that made our trip very enjoyable (lots of propane for the grill, fire wood, hot tub towels, etc). We really enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend this vacation rental.

We were so happy with this home and had a wonderful stay! The property was wooded and had a beautiful wraparound deck with views of the mountains. The kitchen was extremely nice and we were able to entertain guests and felt very The home was beautifully decorated and spacious and we would highly recommend it to others!

This home sits on top of a hill, on top of a Mesa, in the woods. Well appointed, and very comfortable, I would definitely stay here again!!

We loved our stay. So many memories made. The kids loved the stay. Our group of 10 didn't feel crowded what so ever. This house has everything you need. Fully furnished! Beautiful all around. We played in the snow. Met the neighbors and everyone was so nice! We defenatly want to return!

Yummy pancakes and biscuits were made with the ingredients on hand. The child serving dishes was a nice amenity provided. All beds were comfortable and the home was plenty spacious for our two families!
