Enjoy skiing, mountain climbing, music festivals, walk to tennis courts or an 18 hole golf course. Telluride is a 4 season vacation wonderland at 9,500 ft. surrounded by 14,000 ft mountains. High alpine wilderness adventures range from gentle nature walks through fields of wild flowers to serious mountain climbing. Excellent fishing, camping, horseback riding, and nature photography. For more excitement, try hang gliding, parasailing, glider rides, white water rafting, mountain biking, helicopter skiing, or hundreds of miles of 4 wheel off-road exploration. Enjoy all the festivals and cultural events throughout the year. It is a 3 minute walk to a children's play ground, skating rink, or rock climbing wall. Or walk to the Peaks Spa and relax in their whirlpools, saunas, and Roman baths, and take one of their many spa/massage treatments. (Actually you can enjoy a sauna, jacuzzi or steam bath right in the unit.) There are 16 national parks and 46 national monuments within a one day drive. It is an easy drive to Mesa Verde National Park, Black Canyon National Park, various hot springs, historic Durango, Silverton, Ouray, and the 4 corners area. It is a one day drive to Santa Fe, Denver, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, or Sedona. The historic town of Telluride is well-preserved and has a fabelled history. Did you know it was the first city in the world to be illuminated with electric lights? There are no traffic lights, no fast food chains, and no interstate highways for hundreds of miles. It has the highest airport in North America and the highest waterfall in Colorado.

About: Retired college professor.
Why Mountain Village: This is a spacious and comfortable second home with ambiance, spectacular views, 4 season outdoor adventure, and a perfect location. It is away from all the buildings in the core, yet easy walking distance to ski lifts, the free gondola, restaurants and pubs, shops, and various festivals. We have enjoyed many family reunions and both of our daughters were married here. Surrounded by 14,000 ft mountains, this is like being in the Swiss Alps!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: As an end unit, there are large windows and beautiful views on 3 sides. With a southern exposure, you can enjoy the warm southwestern sun in the middle of winter. With a private garage, there is easy access: just open the door and you are home. With a large unit (2600 sq ft), there is plenty of space and privacy for everyone and one entire floor which combines the kitchen, dining room, and living room where all can gather for dining and socializing. The location on the cul-de-sac is quiet and private yet close to activities in town. And don't forget ski-in/out. See our website for more information and pictures.
