Welcome to our little slice of heaven. This cozy carriage house is in a great location, walking distance to both Lifts # 7 & 8 (Gondola), on a quiet back alley close to Main St, Telluride. On entering the house, you'll find a compact and tastefully decorated kitchen and living room. With hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances, the spaces blend form & function, & include a gas fireplace and flat-screen TV w/DVD. The deck has great views of the ski area, Box Canyon and surrounding ridges, and is perfect for catching both winter and summer rays & enjoying BBQs. Downstairs is the queen bedroom, with plenty of cupboard space, and the bathroom with large steam shower (no bath). A washer & dryer allows complete self-sufficiency, and underfloor heating keeps it warm in the winter. The classic queen sofa-sleeper upstairs makes this a great vacation home for singles, couples or a small family. If you are looking for a distinctive place to enjoy your time in Telluride, you've found it.
Unique: One of the few free-standing carriage houses in Telluride, this little gem is lovely and unique. Unlike condos where you have to worry about what's going on in the next unit, or from people ' walking' over your head, you are completely separate from your neighbours in this compact little house. Whilst similar in price to these condos, you have more room to move around with it's unique design. The deck is the icing on the cake, with a small gas grill, two chairs and a bench plus cushion that allow for hours just relaxing in the sunshine, while taking in the spectacular mountains around you. If you are looking for a unique 'home' for your time in Telluride, this is it.
Light and airy: Although it's small, the number of windows in the house gives a feeling of open space, with plenty of light and cross-breezes in the summer, and the warmth of the sun in the winter. The light wood panelling enhances that feeling of warmth, and gives you a sense of belonging for however long your stay may be. Downstairs in the bedroom, you have privacy with the up/down blind, which also allows light to filter through, so it's open and airy (and at street level, so not a 'basement' feel). In the winter, the underfloor heating means you'll never be cold, even in the marble floor bathroom.
Location: Right near the River Trail that winds it's way along the San Miguel River in and out of town, the house is located on a quiet back alley, halfway between Lifts 7 & 8 - and the free Gondola to Mountain Village. And only three blocks to the top end of town (the Court House), and all that has to offer in terms of restaurants, nightlife and day time shopping.
Our house is also listed by our Property Managers with HomeAway (Listing 911480) & VRBO (376353).
The bedroom is not huge, but amply big enough for two side tables, and to walk around each side of the queen size bed easily. The closet (with three sliding doors) is along the side wall of the bedroom and runs the length of the room. It has a top shelf (which usually stores spare pillows/blankets etc.) to put larger clothing items on, or to stack away suitcases. There is no inbuilt shelving, but there are two, 4 tier hanging shelving units on each side of the closet space. There's plenty of hangers and hanging space for long or short clothing. There is a laundry basket on the floor of the closet in the middle cupboard. The two sets of golf clubs (ladies and mens) for guest's use are usually stored on the left side of the closet next to the hanging shelving units.
There is high quality carpet in the bedroom, and a large window with up/down blind. Designer side-table lamps allow for reading, and a large floor lamp gives extra light as needed. Bedroom linen has just been upgraded....moreless
The bathroom is compact with separate toilet, heated tiled floors, and a lovely steam room combined with shower. Not much room on the top of the vanity, but a large storage space underneath, and further bathroom storage in the cupboard above the toilet.
The medium sized washing machine and dryer (stacked) are at the entrance to the bathroom, with an ironing board tucked in the small space either side of these (iron is usually in the vanity unit)....moreless
This small carriage house is best suited to a couple, however, it can definitely cater to a couple with children, or two couples who don't mind the slight lack of privacy, as there is a good queen size sofa bed in the living room that is easily set up at night. The large dining table caters for 6-8, and there is crockery, cutlery and cookware for a small dinner party! The kitchen cupboards are mostly taken up with these (usually two to three cupboards are left empty for non-perishables), but there is space for storage on the counter, and of course in the large fridge. A lovely and full-size oven/range with four hobs means cooking is a pleasure, and the full-size dishwasher complements that!
Parking is NOT provided, however, a Pacific Ave street parking permit is available from the property managers on checkin. The parking pad next to the house is not for our home.

Named for the 90-mile-long San Miguel River, San Miguel County is home to some of southwest Colorado’s most amazing natural sites, including Bridal Veil Falls—the longest free-falling waterfall in Colorado—and the Old Spanish Trail—a 1,200-mile historic route that started in Santa Fe, touched the Telluride region and continued on to Los Angeles.
At the heart of San Miguel County are two unique communities: Telluride and Mountain Village. Each with its own charms, the two towns are connected by a free gondola, the only transportation system of its kind in North America. Rooted in history, Telluride is both a bustling ski town and historic jewel. Clapboard storefronts house independent art galleries, old-time bars and delectable eateries. Neighboring Mountain Village offers a modern take on nature and features expansive views and world-class accommodations. During winter, Mountain Village features convenient access to the slopes of Telluride Ski Resort.
