Mountain Village house description

Your perfect mountain retreat in Telluride,ideal for your ski vacation or to enjoy the multitude of outdoor,musical and cultural activities of the Rockies.

Located in Gold Hill Court,Mountain Village and handcrafted in timber with 4 bedrooms, a loft, games room and 4 and a half bathrooms, this fantastic family home combines comfort with luxury in a very convenient location.

Owned by well travelled Australians who think Telluride provides the best overall skiing experience in the world providing runs for all standards from beginner to extreme skier or boarder, every effort has been made to ensure that 'EUREKA' will be your home away from home.

All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and flatscreen tv. The home has 2 master suites.one has a steam shower and jacuzzi tub. the other master suite has a shower,soaker tub and its own gas fireplace.The 2 guest rooms can be set up as kings or twins depending on your needs.

Upstairs the very private loft has a very comfortable double sleeper lounge when you are not watching cable tv on the big screen .

Children and adults alike can enjoy the 7 foot pool table in the games room and the large hot tub on the back deck.

In winter you can ski out to the Double Cabin ski trail which is also just an easy 120 yard walk away.

The home has spectacular views of the San Sophia Mountains that can be enjoyed from many rooms in the home or while you relax in the hot tub.

No need to bring your car as Mountain Village provides a free door to door Dial a Ride which can take you to shops ,reataurants,the supermarket and liquor store and the gondola. When the famous Colorado snow melts away the supermarket,liquor store and gondola are a very short walk. The Mountain Village and the town of Telluride are connected by a free gondola, public transport at its best!

              Amazing views from the window seat of this great Telluride mountain home 05/27/2010

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              The owners of the Eureka house at Mountain Village in Telluride, Colorado were kind and welcoming hosts during my visit to Telluride. Now I’m no superstar like Tom Cruise, Oprah, or some of the other Telluride locals but I can see why the celebrities love Telluride! It’s a small town full of friendly people from superstars to everyday folks who just want to get away in the mountains. Everyone seems to know each other and they make you feel like this is where you belong.

              The Eureka house itself is a luxury home with everything you can think of. The cedar beams, stone hearths and wood floors make a mountain bear feel right at home. And beneath this Tyrollean lodge styled architecture are all the amenities to pamper a bear like me. It has a steam shower, jetted tubs, KitchenAid appliances, and radiant floor heat! If you need to adjust your bindings there is a work station in the large garage with tools to help you out. When I’m done skiing the mountain I can ride right down to the Eureka house, leave my boots in the mudroom and sit in the hot tub! From there on the top deck I can see most of the San Juan Mountain Range with jagged peaks and icy ridges. Then I can fall asleep in one of the master suites while snow falls outside the window and a fire burns in the hearth.

              Telluride is surrounded by rugged 14,000 foot peaks. The people here call it “Little Switzerland” because it looks like the Alps – ahh, my kind of place! From town you can see Bridal Veil Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in the United States. Telluride Ski Resort boasts some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world. The lifts and gondola connect Mountain Village and downtown Telluride so that you can practically travel around town on your skis.

              The Eureka house is just a five minute walk to Mountain Village where a quaint pedestrian hamlet has been built. It’s a little town of its own with shopping, fine dining, burger joints, parks, spas and more. It even has a grocery store. Or you can jump on the gondola that takes you right into downtown Telluride just a few minutes away. There are festivals in almost all seasons in the town of Telluride and Mountain Village. In the summer there is a festival almost every weekend!

              So whether you’re a celebrity or just an average Joe looking for a mountain retreat, the Eureka house will make your stay perfect!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: The owners of Eureka are John and Catherine Mcintyre,pictured here at Allreds. We are Australians who live in Thredbo ,a small ski village in the Snowy Mountains.Yes it does snow in Australia! We owned a boutique property management company that looked after 5 star ski chalets for 12 years so we are well aware of what makes a great holiday. we had been visiting Telluride for more than 15 years before we found the perfect second home

              Why the Owner Chose Mountain Village:
              Telluride is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.It is also a fabulous place to ski and to vacation.We have travelled extensively both summer and winter to many destinations around the world and Telluride was the only place outside Australia that really feels like home to us.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Eureka is not a vacation rental property ,it is a home. Our aim is to let our guests experience the same level of relaxation and enjoyment that we experience every time we visit.
