About Sue Holland
Hello, we are Sue and Royce Holland from Dallas, Texas. We love Durango and decided to purchase a second home here in 2008. We are out of town, about 24 miles from downtown Durango. Our home is at 8,900 feet altitude on five acres of aspen trees. It is beautiful. There is lots of wildlife around the house which is fun to watch. And we just are away from it all. The ski resort is 2 1/2 miles north of the house, so its a quick trip in the winter time. There are a few restaurants that are within a mile or two from the house as well. The views are second to none. We love spending the early part of the evening watching the sun set. We love our home and hope you will too. Sue Holland

Why Sue Holland chose Durango
My husband is all about the view. And the view of the Needle Mountains and the Hermosa Cliffs are amazing.
What makes this House unique
There is a fire pit out back with beautiful view of the Needle Mountain range and the Hermosa Cliffs. The Cliffs rise dramatically behind the house. It is an amazing sight. Enjoy the hot tub off the large deck.

Spacious and Beautiful
My fiance and I recently stayed at Needle Mountain Chalet with a few friends and let me start by saying, you will not be let down! The home was very spacious, clean, and well decorated. The kitchen was large, and stocked with every cookware item imaginable. The towels were plentiful. The master bathroom was large and luxurious. Every detail was thought of in this home. There are incredible views in every room that just take your breath away. We will definitely be back!
Worth every penny!!!
We stayed a Needle Mountain Chalet from December 23-31. There was 9 of us total (two families) and plenty of room for everyone. Last year we rented a house down the highway. It slept all of us, but there was not enough space for the kids to hang out, watch tv, etc without it feeling like we were on top of each other. The kids had the upstairs. The loft is a great place for them to hang out and watch tv. They slept on the fold out couch and we used the E-Z beds (2) for two more kids in the loft. Our oldest was in the queen bedroom upstairs by himself. The living area, kitchen and dining room are very large and plenty of sitting for everyone. This place is stocked! We never ran out of towels or dishes. They have every cooking appliance you need-- plus some that you always wanted to try and wouldn't buy for yourself. I felt spoiled the entire trip. Did I mention....heated floors.
Sue Holland was so easy to work with. She helped us plan our trip, told us where to rent ski equipment for a discount, and her binder at the house gave a ton of information about local restaurants etc.
The house was decorated for Christmas inside and out. Sue and Gwen (property manager) definitely made our trip special. Our whole crew would recommend staying at this home. You will NOT be disappointed!
Very Impressed! Would stay again in a heartbeat!!
I would agree with another review... The pictures don't do the house justice at all! We were very impressed and enjoyed our stay. I've lived in Colorado my whole life and the views off the front deck are spectacular. The flow of the house is awesome and the back deck and hot tub were tucked away nice in the back. Very nice property and the small details were handled very well. Location relative to the ski area was perfect, I don't think the heater even had time to warm up the drive was so short!! Great attention to detail in the house including the furniture, decorations and layout. You won't be disappointed!
Exceeded All Expectations!!!!
This home was amazing, the photos available do not show how large and beautiful the house is. The home has an open floor plan with gorgeous views. When we arrived we were greeted by the housekeeper who provided some goodies (Snacks, emergency, Advil, etc.) The homeowner also keeps the home stocked with plenty of sheets, blankets, and towels. All of which came in handy when traveling with a group of 10 people. We were all so impressed and pleased with the home it has become a favorite property of all the homes we have rented on VRBO! Cannot wait to go back!
Spring Break Ski Trip
This is the second time we have rented this property and will do so again. This is an awesome place and the owners are extremely helpful. There is too much to say about this wonderful property. It is by far the best VRBO Property we have rented.
Views are BEAUTIFUL
Rented this home based on the views for our vow renewal. Ceremony was on the back porch w/the aspen grove in background. Wonderful for entertaining and slept 10 very comfortably. Great for photography too. Fun sledding and all the amenities were wonderful. Pantry was well stocked. Owner is very friendly and had good tips. 2 miles from ski resort.
In addition to its quick access to one of the finest ski resorts in the Rockies, the Chalet is located a quarter mile from the trailhead of the beautiful Elbert Creek Trail which stretches 9.9 miles into the San Juan Mountains and is a good challenge for accomplished hikers.
The initial portion of the trail is a relatively easy and scenic trail for less strenuous hiking or snowshoeing. Numerous other excellent hiking trails are within 5 to 20 miles north of the Chalet as you travel Highway 550 over Coal Bank Pass and Molas Pass on the way to Silverton. And for golfers, there are about half a dozen courses located within about 25 miles of the Needle Mountain Chal
