We had a great stay in unit 61. It’s a very well-built townhome. The only issue we had was that the 3rd bedroom isn’t really a bedroom. It’s more of a little loft room or alcove. There’s no closet and no windows. A bit of a surprise.

The master bedroom is huge and has a nice balcony and fancy bath room. The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds, good for kids to share.

The location is great. There’s a fabulous trail practically right outside your door and purgatory across the street.

The townhouse was very comfortable, nicely equipped, and when we had a question, Keith was very quick to respond and help us out. This was definitely our favorite stay in Durango!

We booked a last minute trip to the mountains and got lucky in finding this rental available! Very pet friendly (pet clean up station, area nearby to walk dog, and trail in the neighborhood!) Beautiful views, very clean and so close to Purgatory. We were only able to stay two nights but could’ve stayed a lot longer. The beds were not the most comfortable, more than a few nights would’ve been not so fun.

This is a cozy place to stay in. It is a street away from the Purgatory Resort. In being so, it provides more privacy than the Purgatory as you have no elevators nor halls to go through to get to your chill spot.
It is a duplex scenario, so you will need to be mindful of your neighbors (and hope they have the same courtesy) as sounds do travel through the walls.
Regardless, we would pick this place, at the right price, over the Purgatory any day. More than sufficient cookware, cozy beds, comfy rooms with chimney. Attached garage was plus. Most of the time we enjoyed a short walking to/from the lower lift even though there is free shuttle service.
We were happy, our dogs were happy which turned out to an awesome snowboarding getaway.
We would love to go back this place.

My husband and I loved this vacation rental! The location was perfect. We were able to walk across the street to ski at Purgatory which was nice. The rental itself was clean and well kept. I loved the 2 fire places. The one thing missing was a wine opener! Luckily, my husband was able to save the day. Overall, we will definitely book here again!

A very lovely and cozy condo. Perfect for our last-minute getaway for some spring skiing. Had everything we needed. Would definitely go back!

My family had a great time and truly enjoyed staying in the townhouse. Very homey, beautiful views of the mountains from both balconies. Keith at Durango Premier Vacation Rentals was great to deal with. Very helpful. I hope to come back and stay here this winter.

We had a lovely time and appreciated the close location to the lifts. The townhome is nice and was comfy. There were a few problems. The hot water was leaking under the kitchen sink - we had to turn it on when we got there and then it started leaking - there was a pan under the sink to catch the water. The vacuum cleaner was broken. There was no belt in the vacuum - so we couldn't keep our own space clean. The fireplace in the bedroom was broken, so we had to pull it apart to get it to work. My husband is an electrician and he said there were some electrical connection problems there. The bulbs outside to the townhouse were burned out and we had to replace at least one of them. Otherwise we had a good time.

For the 4th time we stay in this place and like each time it was wonderful, very well maintained and Keith was like always right a call or a txt away to answer our question and/or fulfill our request/needs. We will definitely rent it again!

Very well kept condo, large and spacious for 6 people, with living room and master bedroom facing the slopes of Purgatory. Beautiful views!
Highly recommended!
Kathy G. August 16, 2016
this is a very nice condo, love the location- near the ski area but seems off by itself. We come here in the summer, not too many around us. The condo is well kept and clean. Beware the third bedroom, tiny and no window. The master is fabulous.

excellent location. easy to slopes. Clean, comfortable condo.
Jessica F. January 14, 2014
We stayed in the summer and then again for Christmas, access to the slopes was very easy and quick, the shuttle is door to lift and easy to call. We also loved the fireplace and had it going most of the trip. Used the hottube 2 nights which was easy and accessible. This is a great place to stay and have enjoyed coming back time and time again. Only issue was bed in spare bedroom broke, but they offered repairs while we were there, we opted to leave it and have them repair after we left.

The condo was as described--clean, roomy, and just across the highway from Purgatory. We will definitely stay there again on our next ski visit.
Travis H. March 10, 2014
Stayed in the townhome for 5 days and loved every minute of it. Just across the street from lifts so very convenient yet very quiet and family friendly. Having the garage to protect the car and keep it warm was great. Look forward to the next visit!

The location was very convenient to the slopes and the townhouse was tastefully appointed. We will be back next Spring.

Black Bear was a last minute change from our original accommodation choice ... and I am delighted to report we found these accommodations to be extremely satisfactory. The interior was warm and inviting and big enough to accommodation our entire family. The master suite is huge, easily providing space for the baby's bed. "Grandpa" and "Grandma" stayed in the room with two single beds and can report the beds were as comfortable as any they have ever slept on. Two more grandsons easily fit into the room with the day bed and trundle. The location, directly across from Durango Mountain Resort, was excellent. The kitchen was fully equipped and the garage was an added plus. We were extremely appreciative to Durango Premier Vacation Rentals for their assistance in making our vacation experience in southwest Colorado a great memory. When we're in the area again, we will certainly hope to be able to stay in this Black Bear townhome again. It was a perfect fit for our family.

Overall, very good. Very nice townhome in a great location. Common areas were a bit unkempt and common area grill did not work.
Christiana H. January 20, 2016
The condo is great, well appointed, well decorated. The "trundle" bedroom is VERY small, maybe 10'x7'.
Mike T. September 15, 2014
The location was excellent for us since we ride dirt bikes and all we had to do was cross the highway. The garage was great to keep the bikes in when we got back from riding. We really liked the place other than a few annoying things. Numerous light bulbs were burned out. My bathroom had 4 bulbs and only one worked. This one even burned out so I had to replace it with one from the lamp in my room. Also, the beds were HARD not firm. One guy in our party stayed on the couch cause his bed was so bad. Other than that we loved the place and had a great time. I definitely would stay there again but I would request light bulbs checked and maybe bring a mattress pad or something to go over the beds.

Perfect place to stay! Manager was quick to respond to any ?'s and helped us book at the very last minute.

The condo was great. The fire place in the master bedroom and the private garage were nice touches. The amenities were great the washer/dryer came in handy as we washed our clothes before we left, so save time when we got home. Not many restaurants to eat up on the mountain, so most likely will need to drive back into town (~30min) to grab some dinnner, if so desired. The cleanliness was about average. The oven definitely needs some cleaning. Overall though, we had a GREAT Stay and would recommend this to anybody.
James P. December 30, 2014
Thank you. We had a great time at Durango. This was the perfect living arrangement for our family of 5.
Noelle J. February 9, 2015
Second time we stayed there, we had a wonderful time.
Cons: property was very poor with "kitchen supply" (no can opener (i had one) no wisk, no mixer, no serving bowl other than few stainless steel, no pyrex or oven safe bowl, very damaged frypan (i do not blame vacation rental i just dont understand how renters can take such bad care of it (like cut mark in the microwave pizza pan, teflon is not supposed to be handle with metal utensils or knifes) we were able to manage to cook with whatever we had, not first time renter so we kind or know what to bring and be aware of not being at home :-)
had a wonderful time even that i was not skiing this year, i enjoyed my stay and my family had a blast on the slopes.
Thank you Keith for renting it to us.
Lamar H. July 1, 2015
Amazing property, amazing location, amazing scenery. Just wonderful. Thanks so much.
Roderick S. April 5, 2015
The town home was great. Plenty of room for a family of 5. Great location for skiing. Never used the shuttle but it could have been a great option.
Susan C. November 25, 2013
It was quiet and out of the way, it had a great atmosphere around the area with some nice restaurants. It had really nice views around the area. It was relaxing. Keith had worked great with the guys, he is awesome and really works with people, has a great personality. It was not far from Durango or Silverton from the house. The house was really nice, and plush it fits 4 guys comfortalby.

A beautiful setting with some nice walking areas right outside and since there was snow, it made it extra special for us. There was plenty of room for our 3 teenagers and a great place to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Jose M. January 11, 2014
We have a very nice experience and a great vacation .

Keith is very professional.

My husband and I had a reservation in another area or Colorado. When we arrived, the cabin was nothing like it had been advertised. In fact, it was horrible. We decided to drive on to Durango where we knew we would find a great place to stay. I did a search on and found the Black Bear. It was almost 5 p.m. I wish I could remember the young man who helped us. He got is in this condo right away and it was beautiful. I was also impressed with how we felt like we were the only ones there. You could not hear a sound from the people in the next condo. Will definitely stay here again.
Anonymous June 24, 2015
We all enjoyed the beautiful drive up to the condo. The condo itself was also very nice and it fit all of us comfortably. The condo had a wonderful view of the mountains and of Purgetory. The location of the place was perfect especially since we wanted to explore Ouray which wasn't but an hour and a half drive. I would definitely go to this condo again and I can say that we all are fortunate to have had such a nice stay. Thank you!
