Durango Colorado vacation rental condo in the heart of the Main Avenue Historic District.
Exciting location! Historic downtown Durango Colorado right on Main Avenue, the vibrant old town area with a multitude of restaurants, shops and entertainment options, and an easy stroll to the famous Durango-Silverton Train Depot. This one-bedroom condo has been recently remodeled with an eye on modernization & luxury, and right in the middle of all things Durango.
Constructed in 1888, The Jarvis Building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, with a remarkable history of uses in a community rich with natural splendor and a heritage of Rocky Mountain adventures dating back to the mining era that helped build America. This building was once home to one of Durango’s early movie houses, The Gem Theater, where folks gathered for entertainment. Notable events at ‘The Gem’ include a boxing match in 1915, where a young start-up named Jack Dempsey, left the mines of Colorado to begin his now famous run as a world-renowned boxer.
The building has evolved into more contemporary urban condominiums over the years, though everywhere the eye turns, the building’s elegant history of Victorian design are still quite evident. The entrance lobby and hallways are decorated with historic photos and documents from the area, creating vintage ambiance for visitors to take in.
Arrival at this completely updated home begins with a private, reserved, off-street parking space dedicated to this condo, which alleviates the challenges of downtown parking. The main entrance to the building is just a few steps across W. 10th Street from the private parking lot, and the front door is secured by coded entry for after-hours access. Inside the Victorian-era lobby and down the ground-level hall, is the entrance to the suite.
Entering this condo, guests are greeted by an all-new interior decor from top-to-bottom including furnishings that thoughtfully combine elements of old and new, creating a warm, comfortable and inviting space. Guests will experience the quality of this home while settling in, to contemplate the many options for activities and refresh the soul, all in the heart of the Durango Historic District.
Inside the home, guests will find a stylish, completely new kitchen, replete with modern appliances, cookware and tableware. The one-bedroom, single level floor plan includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room - with flat screen `smart` TV providing Cable TV service, and WiFi is also supplied exclusively to this condo. A full bath and a bedroom suite containing a queen bed and large closet / dressing room complete the floor plan.
Outside, at the rear of the building, is a gated, private patio with a gas grill and community dining & seating areas. The first floor door to this sunny spot is right down the hall from the elevator lobby on the ground level for convenient entry. The Durango & Silverton Train passes just a few feet from the patio area, providing a glimpse into what downtown living was like over 100 years past.
We’re not exaggerating when we say ‘in the heart of downtown Durango’. Whether visiting for events, festivals, the holidays, a weekend getaway, activities at Fort Lewis College, a business trip or simply wanting to experience the excitement of a historic Victorian mining town turned tourist destination - this condo is convenient for many travelers. Skiing and summer activities at Purgatory Resort are a scenic 30 minute drive to the north, and Mesa Verde National Park is about a 45 minute drive through the rolling foothills of Southwest Colorado.
