Dolores house description

Large home nestled in the beautiful San Juan Mountains near Telluride.

This family home is just what you need for a large family or several families. We are remote enough to enjoy the serenity of the mountains, see and hear the wild life, yet close enough to several wonderful area attractions. This 2,700 square foot home has 5 bedrooms and can sleep 10 in beds. The beautiful kitchen with a six foot island is terrific for entertaining and a gathering spot for everyone. Enjoy the large decks complete with a barbeque for outdoor meals and watching the many forms of wildlife right outside. Our home is set up with Directlv (satellite) and wireless internet. Should you need to work while there, the large office will accommodate your needs well. Enjoy a hot steam shower after a day of skiing or hiking or relax in the 5 person hot tub set amongst the surrounding trees. Basement apartment contains a bunk room with 4 beds, family room, newly renovated kitchen and bath. Basement walk out apartment is at an additional nightly fee. Whole house can accommodate 14 persons in beds, plus overflow (max 18).

Our three story home is a perfect set up for several families or your extended family as the walk out basement has one large bedroom, a living room, a separate fully furnished kitchen and full bathroom. This affords you the luxury of enjoying some time together but also having your own space.

There are two fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom both with gas starter and plenty of cut wood for your enjoyment while you are there.

                  Located in the heart of the beautiful San Juan Mountains. If you want peace and solitude, this is the place for you. Enjoying watching the hummingbirds and the deer, right from the deck. Great hiking right from the property and many other trails within a few miles. Fly fish in the Dolores River, walking distance from the house. Telluride Ski resort and the town of Telluride is open year round for skiing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, paragliding, horseback riding and much more. Mesa Verde National Park where you can view over archaeological sites and over 600 cliff dwellings is 40 miles from the home. Make it s hub for visiting the many other National Parks in the area including The Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: The Jim & Karen Bradley family built this home for their use. As the kids have grown up and no longer use it as much, it is now time to share our vacation home with others. We live in Tucson Az but have deep roots in this area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Dolores:
                  This home is very comfortable for use by extended families and couples vacationing together. Although located in a rural area, it is close to many popular attractions including Mesa Verde National Park, Durango and Telluride. It is close enough to be a hub for visiting other nearby attractions including The Grand Canyon National Park, Arches National Park, Zion and Bryce National Park and several others. The house and its location make it an ideal base for exploring SW Colorado, SE Utah, NE Arizona and NW New Mexico. Summer activities are great including fishing, hiking, mountain biking, or just relaxing on the deck. In the Fall, the colors will astound you. Winter time is play time in the snow. The Telluride Ski area is only a 45 minute drive away, for some of the best snow skiing and snowboarding in the country. Sledding, sitting by the fire and hot tubing are also great winter activities. If you really want to get away and spend time with family and friends, this is the place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home allows for a comfortable stay, so you can relax and set your own schedule. Fully modern, it has all of the conveniences of home, but in a wonderful rural mountain environment.
