The Needle Mountain Chalet Elevation 8,900 Feet Master Bedroom - King Bedroom 2 - King Bedroom 3 - King Bedroom 4 - Queen 2 Full Sofa Sleepers 2 Twin Raised Airbeds Welcome to the Needle Mountain Chalet, located in one of Colorado's most beautiful valleys, just a short 5 minute drive (about 2.5 miles) from Purgatory/Durango Mountain Ski Resort. The Needle Mountain Chalet is situated on five acres covered with Aspen trees and Colorado Blue Spruce. With easy access to Highway 550, the Chalet is an all-season vacation home. Large and accommodating, the Chalet is approximately 4,000 square feet with four bedrooms and 4.5 baths sleeping 14. The views from the home from every window and either of the spacious decks are spectacular. The Needle Mountain Range, which rises to over 14,000 feet elevation, forms the eastern wall of the valley, and the finely chiseled Hermosa Cliffs rise in back of the Chalet on the west side. The Needle and West Needle ranges provide a veritable feast to the eyes. Towering 6,000 feet above the valley floor, they dominate the view from the master bedroom, main living room, loft living room, dining room, and front deck. Regardless of season or time of day, the vision is always changing and very dramatic at times. The back of the house faces the Hermosa Cliffs where the magnificent Castle Rock rises almost 2,000 feet above the Chalet. The majestic rise of the cliffs is breathtaking when viewed from the back patio, loft living room, upper level and main level bedrooms, and especially the deck adjoining the upper level bedroom. And the views are equally spectacular when hiking the 5-acre lot of aspen trees and spruce and the one mile loop around the neighborhood. The Chalet has a large living and dining area. The kitchen is one that a professional cook would love and feel at home with. The dining room easily seats 14 and there are dishes for 25. The pantry is stocked with many basics for guests use. There are two large ovens and an oven/warming drawer to keep meals hot. The decks have wonderful seating with patio heaters to keep you snug and warm. If you are coming in from a long day on the ski slopes slip outside and relax in the hot tub on our large deck. The hot tub is kept cleaned and heated for our guests. The view is of the Hermosa Cliffs - specifically Castle Peak. The garages accommodate a total of three vehicles and guests have the use of our garage door openers. There is also some covered parking for parties with more than three cars. In the winter you must have either have a four wheel drive or chains for your tires. We get a lot of snow at 8,900 feet. There is wireless internet access that is available throughout the house. The phone service includes unlimited long distance calling throughout the USA as well, so if this needs to be a working vacation, you will have all you need. The Durango winters can be cold on the mountain. The Chalet has heated floors and central heat that also has an air cleaner and humidifier. There is also a backup generator in case the power goes out – which can occasionally occur on the mountain. The generator automatically turns on if the power goes out to keep our guests warm and comfortable. There are two 60 gallon hot water heaters that are in tandem, so hot water is unlimited. The home is dog friendly, and we welcome your pets as a member of the family. A dog bed is provided in the laundry room along with a gate that can be used to secure your pet in the laundry room. There are also watering and food dishes for your pet. More than anything, you will enjoy and be awe struck with the fantastic views from every one of the many windows in the house and the immediate access to skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, golfing, and numerous other outdoor activities. A favorite activity is sitting on the decks admiring the beauty with the heaters on if it cold and then, of course, if you are coming in from a long day of skiing there is the long soak in the hot tub off the back deck. After a long but wonderful day on the ski slopes or the hiking trail or the golf course---or just sightseeing or riding the narrow gauge railroad or shopping in Durango--- get away from the crowds and congestion and enjoy the essence and solitude of the Rockies. The Chalet is truly Rocky Mountain High. So come and stay a spell. This home is dog friendly. Approved Dogs are allowed with a non-refundable fee per pet based on size/type. Please let us know about your pet(s) when inquiring or making your reservation. 4 Wheel or All Wheel Drive with Snow Tires or Chains is required in Winter - NO EXCEPTIONS! BOOK WITH US AND RECEIVE DISCOUNTS ON RAFTING, ATV/JEEP RENTALS AND TOURS, SKI AND SNOWBOARD EQUIPMENT RENTALS, AND MUCH MORE!

We have been traveling to Colorado for decades in the summer to enjoy the great weather, traveling the mountain passes, visiting the Bar D Chuckwagon, downtown Durango, Silverton, Ouray Hot springs and having quality family time. We rent a house or condo every year and hands down the Needle Mountain Chalet has been the greatest home we have had the pleasure of staying in. The views, the hot tub and the layout was great for our extended family to have personal space and together space in the same home. We will book next year and as long as the owners are willing to share this truly wonderful house. I can't wait for morning coffee on the front deck watching the sunrise, or the huge family meals in the massive dining room discussing the great daily adventure. Thank you so much for sharing your slice of heaven on earth and for allowing our furry family to make the journey as well. Truly remarkable.

We've enjoyed multiple stays at Needle Mountain Lodge in the summertime, enjoying the field of wildflowers in the front yard, and evenings on the front veranda enjoying the beautiful sunset views. The home is close to Glacier Club and the Durango Hot Springs, two of our favorite destinations. The home is amazing, so comfortable and spacious, and the gourmet kitchen is incredibly well equipped, better than any VRBO we've rented. All of the comforts of home, PLUS the home now has an elevator from the garage entry to the main level & great for transporting luggage upstairs! We absolutely recommend this home for your stay.

We had an amazing stay over spring break! Great location with a 3 minute drive to the base of the mountain. The road to the house was nice and manicured to get to the house, but if there was a snow storm or during the winter you would definitely need snow chains or tires. The road is uphill. The house was very clean and had enough space. We loved the large dining table and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could ever need! The front porch and back porch were great hang out spaces with heaters after a long day. A great stay for sure. We would definitely book this house again!

This is one of the most beautiful vacations homes that we have ever stayed in. The location was excellent in close proximity to Purgatory ski resort and just a short drive to Durango. The home is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need from an abundance of kitchen appliances, utensils, pots and pans and so much more. The beds are a bit firm, but comfortable and the pillows were a bit soft for our taste but that's truly the only negative we could find. It was a wonderful place to stay and the outdoor amenities were superb. I would highly recommend this home for your next stay. Absolutely Stunning.

The pictures don't do this place justice! The views are amazing and the place is overly equipped with everything you could think of! *no joke about the 4x4 requirement, we had 1 suv with rear wheel drive and chains and was not able to make it up the driveway.

Property far exceeded what was detailed on line. Excellent location close to Purgatory Resort. Bit of a drive to Durango, but totally manageable. House is stunning and better equipped than any vacation rental we have previously occupied. Easy check in. Would absolutely rent again

We rented this property during our kids Spring Break and it was perfect! The home was beautiful and came equipped with everything one might need. Our kids loved that they each had a room to themselves and there is plenty of space to enjoy together or break away for some quiet time. The location of the home is great. We were only a 5-6 drive to Purgatory Resort for skiing, which made for a very easy drive back to the house after full days at the resort to cook dinner and relax. Needle Mountain Chalet will definitely be our choice to stay any time we visit Durango in the future!

This is a great house located super close to Purgatory... I imagine the hiking/lakes/views are just as great in the Summer, too. It was perfect for our groups ski trip and communication with property management was quick and easy. Did I mention the view? We would definitely stay again.

This home is spacious, open, well-appointed, and very conveniently located. It only takes a few moments to get to Purgatory each morning and the drive to Durango is also easy and convenient. The home was very well stocked with essentials and staple items. We actually brought along way too many extras that weren't needed. The large dining room and open kitchen are perfect for gatherings and lovely evenings as a group. The open areas outdoors were also perfect for the kids to enjoy some sledding. The only caution I have is for drivers. Everyone in our party drives 4wd trucks. If there is any snow do not attempt the driveway without chains in addition to 4wd. The signs on the property all indicate you need 4wd or snow chains, but we had several scary incidents when traveling up the drive with the only 4wd. The snow gets very deep, packed, and slippery. A man at the property to shovel off the decks told us that people always have trouble with the driveway during storms and often slip off the road. He said this house in particular has trouble because of the steep drive. That would not keep me away from this wonderful property and if we were ever in the area again we would absolutely stay here! Just be cautious and chain up, even with 4wd. Don't hesitate to book this amazing home for your next trip. Peaceful, beautiful, and just perfect!
