Durango: Large Family Rental
When my family decided to make Durango, CO as our 2017 vacation destination, my daughter found a house big enough for all of us. She found a house called "Trappers Ridge" about 25 miles from downtown Durango and just 5 minutes from Purgatory.
The house is three stories and sits next to a small lake and stream. The view was amazing. We entered on the first floor through the garage. On that level was a bedroom, bathroom with huge shower, the hot tub and a game room. My son and his family stayed in the room on that floor. Up one level is where the kitchen, living room with fireplace, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kids room was located. There were lots of large windows to enjoy the views from all angles. On the top level was the master bedroom suite, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Every room was full.
It was a short walk down to the water's edge to fish. Our fishing area was next to a beaver damn which was destroyed so the water can flow through. The fishing in that area was amazing. The boys must have caught about a dozen large fish. Some were released, but some were saved for dinner. The fresh fish was amazing! We also took advantage of the fire pit and made s'mores for the kids and adults too. This house not only suited our needs as a large family, but was close to all the activities we had planned.
