Awesome Property, Amenities, Location and Services!!
Awesome Property, Amenities, Location and Services!! My Husband and I and our two dogs stayed at this beautiful mountain house for a week from January 11-18th and it was absolutely awesome. The pictures here do not do this place justice! It is SO MUCH prettier in person! There is plenty of room on the property for kids or pets to run and play in the snow and the property is on an acre and sits a little off the main road so you have plenty of privacy yet aren’t completely secluded. The hot tub is magnificent and was hot and ready upon our arrival. Amenities are exactly as described-complete with firewood, fire starters and matches to enjoy the fantastic fireplace- and we had all of the kitchen utensils, bath towels, linens, and blankets we needed and then some. Tons and tons of windows throughout the house for bird watching or just enjoying the beautiful scenery. The mud room/utility room entry from the side of the house is great for coming in from playing in the snow and we took advantage of having the washer and dryer, which was really nice. The wrap around porch is HUGE with a fantastic view and the BBQ grill is great! This is an awesome place for families or couples. We have rented from Keith at VRBO/Durango Premier Vacation Rentals twice now and both times we have been blown away by the quality of the properties and the service he provides. Each time I emailed, both before and during or stay, I received a response within 5-10 minutes from Keith-whether it was to ask where something was or asking for advice on things to do, restaurants, etc. he was always prompt about responding and happy to help. We thoroughly enjoyed this house and plan to return on our next trip to Durango!
Thank you so tremendously much for offering such an awesome vacation property in Durango
Thank you so tremendously much for offering such an awesome vacation property in Durango (1/5-10/13). The architecture was absolutely gorgeous and the close-range view of mountains on one side and downtown on the other were spectacular and beautiful. I especially loved the plentiful, plush seating availability in the living room for late evening get togethers while snacking from the beautiful kitchen. My favorite room was the sunroom and cascading waterfall. As the cook of this group, I LOVED the expansive kitchen windows and mountaintop view onto the downtown area. The only suggestion I can make for the kitchen would be to obtain a dining table with a wider floor base so it won’t be so easily tipped as you push upward from it when rising to leave the table. This property truly made this vacation memorable for a lifetime for all of us. We appreciate all of you involved who work to provide such a wonderful experience for good folks.
Excellent home even better management company!
Excellent home even better management company! This home was an excellent base camp for my family. From here we enjoyed hiking (saw a moose), mountain climbing (Handies Peak, Sneffels, Potato Hill), 4×4 off-roading (Alpine Loop), mountain biking (Hermosa Trail – awesome), and played kickball with the neighbors. It was a great time all around. An additional word about the manager for this property – he deserves 6 stars. Super professional. All the information he provides is right on point. Lastly, I messed up my reservation and he saved my vacation. Thank you!
Trip of a Lifetime!
Trip of a Lifetime! First, before talking about the property, let me applaud Keith for the wonderful customer service he provided in finding a location, scheduling, following up and going above and beyond. Thank you, Keith, you provided truly exceptional service for which we are grateful. We hosted friends from out of state who had never been to this part of the country; we live an hour or so away. Now that it has been several days since our vacation ended, they are still raving about their vacation to everyone they know. They call it a “trip of a lifetime” and rather than planning on a single stay, they now say they will return at least annually and are ready for another week. Durango is a great place, but this townhome is truly extraordinary. The views, the amenities, the lighting, the location and the dreamy beds make for a luxurious visit. If you get the opportunity to come to Durango and stay in this home, you will not regret it. Thank you again, Keith and we’ll see you again soon!
Our family of ten had a wonderful time.
Our family of ten had a wonderful time. The VRBO listing was very helpful with making our decision regarding accommodations. The house was very roomy. The photos of the house were accurate. However, the photos did not do justice to the location. The area was gorgeous particularly with 20+ inches of fresh snow. Keith was great to work with. He responded quickly to any questions. The house is remote and quite. It is in a subdivision. The lots are large and houses are spaced out. Four wheel drive autos are an absolute must for the driveway and road leading to the house during the winter months. We would enjoy staying again.
The Lindsey family really had a great time during Christmas at the Creek House
The Lindsey family really had a great time during Christmas at the Creek House. The house really worked for us allowing everyone some space and privacy during the week. We all liked the layout and how you have furnished it. The pictures you sent do a good job describing the house. We really used your kitchen because we cooked every meal (except three lunches) there. The second frig was a life saver after our run to Durango to buy supplies for the week. So thanks for the pancake griddle and the extra big pot (we used both several times). We will always have fond memories of Christmas 2009 in Durango and hope to do it again sometime. Thanks also for all your information about eating and shopping. It made our planning easier.
The Creek House was everything that was advertised and then some.
The Creek House was everything that was advertised and then some. The owner was very accommodating and helpful with recommendations to ensure our week in Durango for fishing and site-seeing was successful. This was the perfect house and setting for a relaxing week. We’ll be back.
I first want to say that Keith was a great Host!!
I first want to say that Keith was a great Host!! He not only got us a great rate, he made sure that everything was smooth during the stay. The condo is very nice. Perfect for smaller families. The views aren’t spectacular due to the trees blocking the view of the mountains but overall, still the overall location at Cascade Village is awesome!! It’s nice to be that far into the mountains. Approx 1 mile from Purgatory (formerly Durango Mountain Resort). You’re only 23 miles from Silverton. I recommend this place to anyone.
This condo is a super place to relax and unwind!
This condo is a super place to relax and unwind! The accommodations are excellent, no disappointments here! Nice place to stretch out, read a great book, watch a movie. Nice size balcony to sip your coffee and watch nature…very peaceful and quiet, even with 550 nearby, very quiet! Plenty of room for everyone to have a bit of privacy and room for fido too. Nice, landscaped area for walking the dog, kids can play outside etc.. Keith is an excellent guy to rent from, very easy going and extremely prompt. He was easy to contact via email or phone for questions or problems. I would recommend staying here if your looking for privacy, quietness and relaxation from the touristy downtown area, its definitely worth it!
What an absolutely awesome place to stay!
What an absolutely awesome place to stay! The pictures do not do this place justice! It is absolutely beautiful on the inside and out. Nice and cozy, very clean, great views, and very convenient! We booked our trip a few months in advance, then had to change it shortly thereafter due to my boyfriend’s broken ankle. We could not have asked for Keith (the owner) to be more understanding or accommodating. Once we changed our trip dates, we started asking about resources for getting lift tickets in advance or possibly at a discount. Keith pointed us in the right direction and ended up saving us $60 on our lift tickets. We also asked about discounts on the train, as we wanted to do quite a bit of activities and wanted to save where we could. Keith said he had a buy one get one coupon. So I booked our reservations and he dropped off the coupon at the train station, got it applied to our reservations and saved us another $100! He truly went above and beyond for us! You don’t find that in most places. Our trip was my boyfriend and our two labs. The property had a great area off to the side with plenty of room for our labs to run and play in the snow in the morning and afternoons before/after skiing. The shuttle to the ski area is a definite plus. It runs every hour (except between 11am-1pm) and is super convenient-picks up right at the lodge so you don’t have to worry about driving OR parking and having to walk to the ski area when it’s crowded. The inside of the condo is nice and roomy. Since we don’t have kids, we used the downstairs bedroom for our pups crates and the closets for storage. The upstairs master is great-very cozy and private if you have kiddos. I can’t say enough good things about this place. We will definitely be back and we will definitely rent from one of Keith’s properties in the future! Absolutely second to none!
This is by far the best accommodations we have ever had!
Our family has stayed all over Colorado: Winter Park, Steamboat, Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen. This is by far the best accommodations we have ever had! This house and Durango overall is a much better value than the mega resorts and just as nice. We loved it!!
The townhouse was amazing…
The townhouse was amazing….the views and everything were just as you had stated…..We loved the house so much! We appreciated that even though we arrived later after the office closed we were still able to take our excited kids swimming because you had picked up and left pool keys for us! The location at the back of the drive is wonderfully private and quiet. The house was well kept and the beds comfortable—felt like a real home! We will definitely book with you again when visiting the area. Thank you so much! We loved the hot tubs and the kids really loved the indoor pool. The location is perfect only about 30 minutes from both Durango or Silverton…..the HUGE windows that open create a wonderful breeze and you can definitely smell the pine trees! We saw deer, chipmunks and more right out the windows! Thank you for sharing your great home with our family—-we will be back!
It’s unusual to find a vacation home of this quality
It’s unusual to find a vacation home of this quality – the craftsmanship, amenities, decor, features. The three-level home provides privacy for everyone, as well as welcoming community spaces with seating for all and flat-screen TVs. For those who like to cook, a beautifully outfitted chef’s kitchen awaits.Less than a mile from the Purgatory ski area, a stone’s throw from hiking and biking trails, close to Engineer Mountain (for those who like to climb) – the location seems to be one for all seasons. We spent a snowy Thanksgiving at the property and are looking forward to coming back this summer. Kudos to the owners and management!
We all really loved the townhome.
We all really loved the townhome. Everything is quite lovely and was a perfect accommodation for our family. We’ve stayed in many mountain rentals and this one ranked way up there. We would love to rent this townhome again! You handled everything very well. Thank you!
We had a great time at this condo
We had a great time at this condo. It was well stocked and had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable. Keith was great to work with and easy to get a hold of during our trip. It snowed 8-10 inches while we were there which was beautiful. The fireplace came in handy. The area is very quiet which makes for a very restful vacation. We can’t wait to go back. Downtown Durango is about 25 min away and has great restaurants and bars. Thanks for sharing your lovely condo with us!
Thank you Keith
Thank you Keith. I just got back from the snowbike festival at the resort and this was a nice quiet place to rest after a hard day of riding on the mountain. We were able to cook our own meals, watch movies which we downloaded from netflix using the wifi, and relax in a beautiful home away from home. This is a very nice place and we comfortably slept 6 of us. The pullout sofa’s were the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Like a full mattress. Very comfortable, quiet and clean vacation spot. I would highly recommend this place for your next vacation to the Durango area for all seasons.
You are absolutely the most helpful person I have had to deal with in booking a rental property EVER! Thank you!!!!
We came into this totally blind
We came into this totally blind, not knowing what to expect with the house, weather, reaction from the kids and grandkids, it was the absolute best time for all of us! The house is amazing. There were 11 of us, ranging in age from 5 months to 62 years old. We never felt like we were stepping over each other. Keith was the best, always answered his phone, no matter the day or time of day. We highly recommend his services, this house and Durango. We will be back as soon as we can. It is definitely the place to be for quality family time.
Outstanding in every way!
Outstanding in every way! Thank you, Keith, for all the many big and small ways you contributed to the success of our family vacation! I’ve never dealt with anyone so responsive to questions/concerns. Fantastic property and location too.
This is our 4th time renting through Durango Premier Vacation Rentals
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 enough 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. Beautiful home!
It was another great experience.
It was another great experience. This is the second time that we have rented this house and it was just as awesome as the last time. I can not say enough for the response to anything we have ever needed.
The house and location were beyond our expectations.
The house and location were beyond our expectations. We had a great line of communication with Keith Brant. I would highly recommend Keith and Durango Premier Vacation Rentals. Our vacation was a great success due in part to our rental property and Durango Premier Rental Properties. Thank you!
My family had a great time and truly enjoyed staying in the townhouse.
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 booked this condo 2 days before arriving and Keith,
We booked this condo 2 days before arriving and Keith, the property manager was awesome and helped tremendously with all of our questions since this was our first time using VRBO. The condo was perfect, clean, comfortable beds and gorgeous views. I highly recommend Keith and Durango Premier Vacation Rentals. The complex is just a hub of activity. My children are grown, 24, 21 & 15 and they loved the alpine slide and the ski lift view ride. We did pay the extra amount to use the pool and that would be my only suggestion, it’s not really necessary because there is so much to do in Durango. Do keep in mind that the condo is about 24 miles from downtown Durango, which we didn’t mind at all. It’s a pretty drive to Durango and not far from Silverton, which is a gorgeous drive. We will definitely use Keith and DPVR again.
We stayed here from July 29
We stayed here from July 29 – Aug 1 and it was so quiet and nice. We loved the location of the Townhome. The Management was very friendly and helpful! We will most definitely stay here again or at any other properties managed by Keith Brant!! Thanks!
First off, this is my 5th rental using HomeAway
First off, this is my 5th rental using HomeAway. All have been just great! This was no exception!
I first want to say that Keith(Property Manager) is one great guy to work with! Patient, Professional and Quick to reply! He had several properties that I went back and forth with him on and I cannot say enough about the service! I sent emails, texts, and phone calls, and they all were answered quickly!
We rented this unit with another family, 8 of us, 2 couples, both with 2 boys each, aging 10 to 15 years old. The unit was better than expected ! We decided we needed 3 baths with the 8 of us and this place fit the bill for budget and needs! We stayed 7 nights. Keith lined us out with all paperwork, instructions, etc. Everything went down without a hitch!!
The unit is well appointed, roomy enough and fit the 8 of us very well. I have been to the area of Durango/Silverton and Ouray several times. Always enjoy going back and that part of the vacation also went well and weather cooperated with us.
We first were going to do a condo across the street at the Resort with Keith but then looked over his other properties. This unit is across the street from the Resort and the area was very quiet. You get a 2 car garage so parking is not a problem! I have stayed on upper floors before and even at high altitudes rooms get hot. This place has ceiling fans in all rooms! It almost 9000 feet and cools off nicely for sleeping. No problem even during the day!
If I were a skier and not wanting to be in the thick of things but close to the slopes along with covered parking, this would be a great place to grab!
The Master Bedroom is roomy with gas fireplace, walk in closet, and a very nice bath!!
The boys fished the lake just down the street and we got the passes from Keith for the Lodge at the Resort for the Pool, Hot Tub and Gym. There is a small store with gas down 550 a couple miles for quick items and surprised the gas was cheap considering the area.
Both families had no complaints! Coming back to this area, the first call goes to Keith!!
Thanks so much for our “Epic Vacation”!
Our family had a wonderful time in Durango, Colorado.Our family had a wonderful time in Durango, Colorado. One of the highlights was the cabin we stayed in. It was perfect for our family. The property was first class through and through. Very clean and modern. It had everything we needed for the week. We definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to escape the busy life and slow down to enjoy the view. The management team was very responsive and accessible. Five stars all the way around.
Kendall #444 is perfect for two people.
Kendall #444 is perfect for two people. The condo was clean and the East facing views of the Twilight Peak and Needle Mountain from our patio and living room window were amazing. One of the chairs on the patio was broken and the property manager (Keith) offered to purchase another in Durango and drive 25 miles to bring it to us. Keith cared about making our stay as good as possible! I highly recommend this place and will be back next year.
Thanks again…and I just wanted to tell you
Thanks again…and I just wanted to tell you that I’m really impressed with your business model…I read the background info on your website and I’ve noticed many of the various properties that you manage on VRBO…your operations are extremely well managed and efficient…and all of your properties look very well taken care of and updated.
This house was absolutely perfect for our extended family of 10
This house was absolutely perfect for our extended family of 10. The house layout was wonderful. I couldn’t believe that 10 of us (ranging from 2 years old to 62 years old) could stay inside comfortably and cohesively all enjoying separate living spaces- napping, cooking, dining, watching tv… The lake and mountain views were unreal. It snowed lightly almost every morning we were there. We were able to get the kids outside to go sledding almost every day. The private nature of the home’s location really helped facilitate the relaxing family time we were looking to have while we were there. In addition, the property manager was outstanding. He answered a plethora of questions that I had about the property within minutes and was extremely accessible the duration of our stay. If we ever take another family trip to Durango, we would not hesitate to return to this beautiful property!
Great Christmas vacation with the family.
Great Christmas vacation with the family. The Premier Vacation Rental property management team went above and beyond to make our stay great. Thank you. Jessica from Lucky Services was also an angel, thanks for all your help setting up a great Christmas.
Keith was fantastic and made the stay and the reservation process very easy for all of us.
Keith and his team were fantastic and made the stay and the reservation process very easy for all of us. I have 4 kids and there was more than enough room. The kitchen is well stocked, laundry detergent was provided, and you can’t beat the view and location. We enjoyed the board games, books, and firewood that was provided as well!
We have stayed in this unit 2 years in a row.
We have stayed in this unit 2 years in a row. It’s in a great location. Easy access to everything from equipment rental, to ticket office, to shops and pizza place and most importantly steps from the lifts! Condo location is perfect when traveling with young kids and you have to help carrying their gear. The unit itself is great. Clean with updated bathrooms. Full kitchen with all you need. Washer and dryer in the unit. It’s small but it’s something, and we used it daily. Elevator access to your condo unit so no carrying equipment up stairs. View of the beautiful mountains from condo. The property manager is awesome to work with. Anything we needed he was just a phone call away and responsive.
This property was PERFECT!!!
This property was PERFECT!!! We had 3 families (13 people) together ranging in age from 7 to 50. We had ample space to all hang out together but enough space when you needed your own space. The kitchen was beyond stocked with pots, pans, plates, silverware … we cooked in every breakfast, lunch and dinner. Beds were comfortable. Each room had its own TV for late night vegging and one giant TV in the loft for night time movies. The ski lifts were literally RIGHT OUT the backdoor. Everyone came and went as they needed throughout the day, so ultimately saved us a lot of $$ lunching and snacking at the townhouse vs. fighting the crowds (which weren’t really bad) at the main lodge. It has a perfect slope for after hours sledding. And Keith, the property manager, was extremely helpful, prompt and so accommodating to all my requests. We had the best vacation!!
This is a wonderful house on a quiet street just north of the Animas river.
This is a wonderful house on a quiet street just north of the Animas river. Very easy access to the river trail for biking or walking to downtown. The house features a great backyard with a nice view of of the river trail and the train which whistles past daily. We put the fire pit and hot tub to regular use. The house is very open and sunny. Cooking is easy in the well-stocked kitchen The entire house is nicely decorated and comfortable. Great management — we had a few questions and couple of things that needed attending (like more firewood). The responses were immediate and everything was handled to more than our satisfaction. This is a perfect place to stay in Durango.
This vacation rental is perfect for anyone who wants to get away
This vacation rental is perfect for anyone who wants to get away from the crowds and get in touch with nature. The facility is extremely clean and easily met all of my needs. I especially enjoyed being able to walk and hike literally right outside my doorstep. The altitude is also perfect and I experienced no altitude sickness at all. This is the place to come if you want to enjoy nature but still be able to easily access downtown Durango and the mountains to the north. The customer service was the best I have ever experienced in a vacation rental. I will definitely return and have already recommended this vacation rental to several of my co-workers, friends, and family members.
Keith with Durango premier saved our vacation!!
Keith with Durango Premier saved our vacation!! The day we were about to depart I was told by the original cabin we rented from chuck Muir in Vallecito Lake that it was double booked and we did not have a cabin. I messaged Keith at Durango Premier and he called me back within 10 minutes with an available cabin at a great rate. The location was perfect, cabin was beautiful with all new dishes, comfortable beds, and a gorgeous deck with a breath taking view! The cabin decor was also beautiful! We will be staying in this area from now on rather than Vallecito! Cabins are newer, right between silverton and Durango with many lakes surrounding us. Perfect spot!! Thank you Keith and Durango Premier.
My husband and I were looking for a budget-friendly place to vacation
My husband and I were looking for a budget-friendly place to vacation with our two small children, and this place was perfect. Although the space is small, it was exactly what we were looking for and provided us with a clean place to stay where we could make our own meals when we wanted to. Our boys loved the activities that were literally just outside the door of our building, and my husband and I loved how close we were to Durango for when we wanted to go to town for an activity. The property met the description perfectly and was very clean and tidy, and we were not disappointed at all. The condo is quite small (which was advertised), but it was the perfect size for our family who wanted a place to sleep and cook meals before heading out for a day of fun. The manager provided excellent customer service and was so fast at responding to all of my emails. I don’t think I’ve ever had such incredible customer service when booking any lodging before. I would recommend this property to others and have already done so multiple times! My boys loved the pool at the resort (You do have to pay a small extra fee for access to the pool and the gym, but it’s totally worth it).
This is a great condo!
This is a great condo! The beds were abundant which is what we needed! The condo was clean and cozy, well decorated and easy to find. The entire resort was beautiful and picturesque. Our kiddos (all ten of them) enjoyed the slide at the pool. The fitness center was top notch. There was a band playing in the bar area. We enjoyed it all! Great value and perfect getaway. And the property manager was the best. Keith made a last minute request seem easy! Thanks!
We always stay in a VRBO when we go on vacation
We always stay in a VRBO when we go on vacation and I have never been inclined to write a review until now! It’s too bad you can only give a 5 star rating because this place deserves a perfect 10! The property management team is always prompt to reply and are the most on-the-ball property managers I have ever dealt with. They too deserves a perfect 10 rating! This property is even better than the pictures show and the pictures were great! The location was fabulous. Even though it is on the golf course it felt very private because of all the landscaping and mature trees. The owner has kept this place absolutely immaculate, clean freaks rejoice!!. The furnishings, beds, sheets, decor, rugs you name it were top of the line! This is the best stocked home we have ever stayed in. The kitchen had everything and more we could possible need. There were ample cleaning supplies for those of us who like to keep a place tidy! There were plenty of beach towels for the hot tub so you did not have to use the towels from the bathroom. There was wood and fire starter for the fire pit. We had 6 adults and 1 child. The house is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. We had ample seating in the living room for watching the olympics and for dinners in and outdoors. This was the best family reunion we have had to date and part of the reason is because this property was a dream to stay in for my entire family! Kudos to the owners and Premier Vacation property management team. We will be back!!!
