Description

**Book Today for Only $300 Down at the Time of Booking ***

Black Bear (Unit 70) is located directly across the highway from Purgatory Resort and is a perfect base for your vacation no matter the season. Our townhome features 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances includes a bar with seating and opens to the main living space and dining area, giving you plenty of space to relax.

The townhome home is part of the resort so you have access to free on-demand shuttle service to Purgatory Ski Resort but since it is across the highway you have the privacy and additional space a townhome affords (it's part of a duplex). At 8,900 feet of elevation, the home is a gateway to an amazing winter playground and also serves as the perfect summer retreat, with a million acres of national forest land at your doorstep offering all your favorite mountain activities. It's only a 2 minute walk to Twilight Lake for fishing and paddle boarding and as well as Purgatory Flats Trailhead, one of the most scenic hikes in the San Juan Mountains. Horseback riding, jeep trails, an alpine slide, epic mountain biking and the Purgatory Inferno Mountain Coaster are all less than 5 minutes from the home.

Bed Configuration:
Master Bedroom - King Bed with TV and Ensuite Bath (2nd Floor)
2nd Bedroom - King Bed with TV (2nd Floor)
3rd bedroom - 2 sets of Bunk Beds (Single Over Single (Upstairs)

The townhome is not pet friendly - please do not bring pets.

The 4% resort fee included in the quote is the required resort fee that must be charged and does not allow access to the Durango Mountain Club. For an additional (and optional) 4% resort fee, you will have access to the Durango Mountain Club which includes an outdoor heated pool with slide, outdoor hot tub and workout facility. When booking, just advise if you would like us to add the additional 4% resort fee.

Book at least a week and a 10% discount is automatically applied (Excludes Christmas/New Years).

Stay with us and we offer DISCOUNTS on both summer (white water rafting, horseback riding etc.) and winter (ski/snowboard rentals, sleigh rides, snowmobile tours etc.) activities.

Cancellation Policy: A non-refundable payment of $300 is required at the time of booking. This $300 payment is applied toward the total amount due and is only refundable within 72 hours of the time of the booking is made. If your arrival date is within 30 days of booking, payment in full is required at the time of booking. Cancellations or changes to stay dates, including changes that result in a shortened stay, are not permitted within 30 days of arrival, and any such changes will result in a penalty.

"Awesome stay overall. Black Bear is the best with the door to door shuttle service to the ski area (right across the street). The photos are a great representation of the home which was clean, comfortable and attractive. The TVs were a bit difficult to figure out how to use so instructions there would have been helpful. Overall we were very happy with our stay and look forward to returning."

"This is our second year at Black Bear, last year we rented the "biggest" townhouse in the community and we did not want to rent it again. Bigger is not always better. We were very pleased with this year's townhouse. It was very well equipped and clean. The two king sized beds were very comfortable, which was a nice change from last year's experience. The on-demand shuttle is wonderful for the skiers in the group, and it was also appreciated by our non skiers because it was easy for them to join us for lunch. Other reviews complained about the carpet. It is true is looks a bit worn, but then it is a rental property and unfortunately people are not always as responsible as they should be, so there are stains. That did not bother us at all. My greatest compliment is I will be renting this townhouse next season."

"Location is fantastic. Cons- not very clean, carpet needs cleaning, dishes were not clean and lots were chipped. Couch cushions were not vacuumed, nor was the underneath of chairs, sofa and beds. The water is very hard. The internet was not working which was frustrating when trying to figure out plans."

"The home was great for our family and management was very responsive! Trails are within walking distance and directly across from Purgatory. Lodging staff was great for use of hot tub and pool. During our stay the coffee maker quit working (it happens) and the home could definitely use new frying pans which management has indicated they will handle. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend!"

"First off, the place and location were great. However there are a couple things that were completely unacceptable, especially at this price point.

The first one is that the house was not at all properly cleaned before we arrived. Either you guys know about this and are cutting corners, or your cleaning people are screwing you over. We had to wash the master sheets as they were completely dirty and unwashed. Half of the towels were dirty and unwashed so we also had to wash those, and multiple dishes were dirty. As I’m sure you can imagine this was not a fun chore to do on the first couple days of vacation. Between the nightly rate and cleaning fee of this place, this was unacceptable.

The second is a little simpler - the kitchen faucet. It’s broken and would only turn off when messed with for 5 minutes. Spend the $150 on a new faucet and save guests the hassle and frustration.

Other than these two things, the place was incredible and I’d definitely come back assuming a clean house and working faucet."

"My family of 6 stayed for 3 weeks at 70 Black Bear and had a wonderful time. The townhouse was comfortable and well stocked. Upon arrival we did need a few items that were missing and Premier Vacation Rentals was incredibly helpful and promptly got us the items. They are probably the best management company that I’ve experienced.

While the house supposedly can sleep 7, in reality it really sleeps 4 or 5 in bedrooms and another person in the living room on the pull out sofa. The 3rd bedroom is tiny and has room for only a single pull out sofa bed. There were nice thick, comfy mattress toppers for the pull out beds.

70 Black Bear is right across the street from Purgatory. It’s more of a very busy road than street so we used the shuttle service to and from the slopes. We loved the convenience of door to door service. Also. we found a trail head nearby for the San Juan National Forest. Also, try the food truck at The Nugget. They have great sliders!

I would recommend this townhouse and definitely Premier Vacation Rentals!"

"We really liked the condo for the 3 of us. Nice to pull into the garage to unload, plus keeping truck out of the weather was nice too. The downstairs, our main hangout, and master bathroom were very comfortable. Master TV area needs remodeling for larger tv. Twin beds in 2nd bedroom could be issue for adults, 3rd “bed” room is a small study with a small pull out. I walked across hwy 550 easily with my gear with no problem to ski lift. Great area to walk dog and awesome trail head down the street! We planned to cook and eat at the condo, luckily, due to resort area closing when lifts shut down. Think that is Covid related. A few restaurants 3-4 miles down hwy, for nearest market your driving to Durango. As for Purgatory Ski resort, I don’t know if this is the Covid affect, but I found it to be dull. I really struggled to put my finger on this felling. Nice open runs, no lift lines, blessed with good snow, but I just felt some lack of connection? Is it Covid? Is it the resort name? Is it me? Anyway, nice roomy, quiet condo in good out door setting."

"No A/C, kitchen sink was leaking, a few carpet stains. Sofa couch was comfortable and the king bed and the single beds (2) but the third love seat/bed was not ideal at all and the room wasn't even a real room like its claimed to be it's more like a study room. The person that was gonna stay in this "room" ended up sleeping on the floor because it was more comfortable than the loveseat/bed. For a family this place works great, for 2 couples not so much because the other couples bed is the sofa couch by the living room and kitchen. For a group of single friends this place would work too but no more than 5 and that would be sharing beds. If guests aren't picky you can definitely have more people. Location is great right in front of the moutain."

"I was so excited to drive up to see this place looked exactly as pictured. The scenery and all. Being right across the street from Purgatory was perfect location for us. It was nice to have a garage to park in. The kitchen was a nice size kitchen to be able to cook with more than one person. The appliances were updated and clean as well as the nice size fridge/freezer. Living room space was nice and the balcony was amazing. I just wish the outdoor furniture was clean enough to enjoy sitting instead of standing to enjoy the view and coffee in the mornings. Upstairs bedrooms were nice size and the master bathroom was amazing. Loved it! The only real negative thing I have to say is that it was probably the worst night sleep we (family of 4) have ever gotten. Being from Texas we're used to the heat and while there's no AC in most places in Colorado you open a window which is perfectly fine with us... There are NO ceiling fans which makes no air circulating throughout the entire upstairs. We had every window open. We did find a box fan but put in the kids room because they could only open 1 window because one of the screens was on the ground. The road noise at night was AWFUL.. after finally falling asleep we would wake up to the big trucks breaking around the corner and other cars speeding by. That being said.... we did like this place and if we rented again we would bring our own fans."

"Overall it was just OK. More like borrowing a friends home for a couple of days than a professional rental. Garage was not swept and had trash, water heater turned down to warm with no warning on the written instructions. On Demand Shuttle did not work, no one answered and when calling back got a recording that a 24 hour reservation was required, bucket with dirty rags and trash in the entry closet, picture of Hot Tub, Exercise Room and Sauna misleading, must pay extra and located up in the Main Lodge, no where near the Unit, Pulls broken on most of the window coverings, entry window covering would not go up, broken chest in Living Room, missing Pulls on Master Bedroom Dresser, TV Remote in Master did not work, Showerhead and Tub in Master Bath need new fixtures, extremely poor output at both locations, request to take out trash ridiculous and only two extra trash bags, never had to do this before, anywhere and we are prepaying for cleaning, many lights out, may need replacement bulbs including the lights over the range, toilet in Master Bath, etc, shower in Master Bath should have a warning label about the glass door it easily closes on your foot when getting in, just barely missed, lots of toilet paper but no Kleenex, just empty covers for Kleenex boxes, lots of pots and pans, dishes and glasses so that was nice, porches had not been swept, called the manager at 9: 00 pm in regards to the Hot Tub location, he answered right away but did not recommend using the Hot Tub, said it was dirty and poorly maintained, there was an extremely loud 'Wooshing' noise from outside on Saturday night, woke everyone up three times, no idea what that was but got very little sleep, sounded like a compressed air tank valve was being opened or something, very annoying, happened again as we were outside packing to leave, sounded like it was across the street from the front of the Condo, Went to the School House Café for Pizza, very busy and crowded but amazing Pizza, always call first!"

"We had a terrific stay at Black Bear 70 condo north of Durango! The condo is beautiful and was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 1 teen and 1 Portuguese Water Dog). We loved being right across the street from Purgatory for mountain biking, steps away from a small lake for our dog to swim in and just a short trip to town for exploration. Travelers should keep in mind that the second bedroom has twin beds, which we forgot are very tiny! Our son was fine however...other than the mattress kept sliding off the boxspring! :D Also, the water is very full of minerals...use of vinegar in the dishwasher and a LOT of moisturizing lotion for your hands and body is a must. Our dog made friends with a local marmot...every morning walk they would talk to each other...well, the marmot would scream at our dog and she would bark back at it. Quite funny."

"From Albuquerque NM, not CT...

this is our 4th time renting through Durango Premier Vacation Rentals, 3rd time at Black Bear - couldn't be happier. Far enough from the resort to have peace and quiet, close enoh to play every day and watch the slopes. Bordered by woods and a nearby lake, the property is great for walking (both with and without dogs depending on which unit you rent), and very safe. As usual, Keith is attentive to absolutely anything you may need and is readily available and helpful - his courtesy and consistent aid is why we will continue renting from him.
