There are so many holidays to celebrate throughout the year, how do we choose our favorite? Luckily, we don’t have to choose when you have a destination like Durango, because it is absolutely spectacular all year long. Ring in the new year walking through a winter wonderland, celebrate Easter atop the highest peak of the San Juan mountains, kick off Memorial Day Weekend with an ice cream cone downtown, or gather with your loved ones for a Thanksgiving feast as the gorgeous autumn leaves fall around you. No matter what holiday you’re looking to escape for, you’ve come to the right place by reserving one of our Durango Colorado holiday rentals.
A Home to Celebrate
We have no doubt that the needs for your vacation rental will differ depending on what time of year you visit, which is why Vacation Durango is proud to offer you a wide selection of holiday vacation rentals near Durango Colorado from which to choose. Ski-in/ski-out, mountain view, lake view, and pet-friendly rentals are just a few of the variations we’re excited to offer you. While not standard in every rental, keep your eyes peeled for bonus features like a fireplace—which can make all the difference in the way you relax on your getaway. Some rentals also showcase an outdoor area, which are great for those summer nights gazing at the stars and telling ghost stories. Hot tubs are another perk that many guests enjoy after a long, strenuous day on the mountain.
No matter what time of year you visit or what rental you decide on, there are certain standards that you can always count on when reserving a holiday rental with us. To start, all of our vacation rentals near Durango Colorado come standard with a full-size kitchen. While some guests choose not to cook at all (Can you blame them? Durango has some mouth-watering restaurants, after all!) while other guests love taking the time to prepare gourmet meals when they’re not frantically running around in their normal lives. No matter your preference, all guests agree that having a gourmet space and control of their own coffee maker is worth its weight in gold. This is especially true if you choose to spend some time holiday prepping, like dying Easter eggs at the dining table, making popcorn to watch scary movies on Halloween, or cooking a turkey feast on Thanksgiving (yes, it’s possible at all of our rentals thanks to the kitchen gadgets we provide).
A Time to Celebrate
Is there anything better than slapping on a rainbow tutu and shamrock sunglasses to ski down the mountain on St. Patrick’s Day? No, we don’t think so either. This is especially true when you’ve got over 1,600 acres of skiable terrain featuring 105 trails, 11 lifts, multiple terrain parks, and a vertical drop of 2,029 feet at your disposal when skiing at Purgatory Resort. Dress however, or as whoever, you’d like when it comes to hitting the slopes, but that’s not the only way to make the most of the colder month holidays. At Christmas time, take the family ice skating and get a cup of gourmet hot chocolate to drink rink-side. If you’re traveling with little ones, you definitely don’t want to miss out on a ride aboard the Polar Express. A magical horse-drawn sleigh ride is another great way to make memories—perhaps as a Valentine’s Day surprise for your special someone? The possibilities are endless when it comes to celebrating a holiday in a fun mountain town on vacation.
As winter moves into spring, the town of Durango comes to life with budding trees and the promise of new life. Over 300 miles of hiking and biking trails are at your disposal, creating the perfect environment to pick wildflowers and spend some time on personal reflection. Not only that, but Durango is a big enough town that guests looking to attend a church service for a religious holiday should have no problem finding the right fit.
As the days get longer and hotter, guests will love taking advantage of the summer holidays. Parades, frozen treats, gourmet burgers, and fireworks are just the beginning. When it comes to exploring, jump on a white water raft or catch your limit of trout at the local lake. Another adventure not to be missed is the Purgatory Alpine Slide. Guests of all ages love descending over a half-mile down the San Juan Mountains on this giant playground.
