                          • Stashed among the highest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks in North America, Telluride’s spectacular scenery is undeniably some of the most beautiful in the Rockies. But the breathtaking views are just a part of what makes Telluride stand out among mountain destinations. Historic buildings, quaint bakeries and local watering holes blend with luxury hotels, five-star restaurants, sophisticated shops and some of the finest spas in the world. There’s no traffic or long lines for shuttle buses, and in most cases no driving after you’ve arrived, as Telluride’s free gondola is the main source of transportation....moreless

                            The condo has two bedrooms. One downstairs and one upstairs, plus a loft. It's bright, cheery, and cozy. The location cannot be beat. You can walk to all the restaurants and shops in town, and the chair lift and gondola are steps away. The town park is also a very short walk away. The owners are responsive, pleasant, and helpful. I would stay here again.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers, families with young children.

                            Manager response: Thanks, Jim! We are glad you guys had such a great trip. We enjoyed having you as our guests and look forward to having you stay with us again! All the best, Michael and Jill .

                            Hi, my name is Marlene and I am from a small town in Carinthia, Austria. I came here to Telluride to see something new from the US and stayed in this beautiful place. In my opinion the owners kept the Condo really clean and the situation next to a river is something you don´t have every day. In the night I could hear the noises of the river and in the morning a fabulous view of the mountains awaited me through the windows in the living room. What I loved about the Condo was that I was able to get to the town easily. It just took about two minutes to get to the grocery store and two more minutes and I was at the Main Street. Moreover, the Condo was not in the middle of the town where you could hear the traffic. Right next to the Condo, about two minutes away, is an amazing hiking trail called “Bear creek” with an indescribable water fall in the end. It is an easy hike for everybody who wants to experience some telluride nature. Furthermore, you can go on a trail called “The River Trail”, also right next to the Condo, which offers beautiful bike adventures through a national forest, etc. I really enjoyed staying in this Condo because the beds were totally comfortable with many pillows and a great amount of blankets, the bathrooms were amazing made with a great taste (a lot of towels :)), a unique kitchen (I have never seen such a kitchen and I loved it from the start), beautiful wood floors and the most important thing: a great view over the mountains and telluride. I would love to stay in the same Condo again and can only recommend it to other people.

                            We spent Christmas at this condo and loved it. We are from LA and have skied in Telluride twice before. The other times we stayed at the Franz Klammer Lodge and The Ice House. The Klammer is great if you want to stay in Mt. Village, but we like town better. The Ice House is also a nice spot in town, but this place was quieter and felt a little more homey. The owners are very nice, very helpful, and the condo is beautifully kept -- well maintained, nice finishes, very clean, etc. We look forward to coming back again.

                            This condo is new and finished very nicely. Bathrooms are well done, and the kitchen contains high end appliances. The view is great. This is, however, about where the description of the unit stops being fully accurate. When you arrive, there may or may not be street parking available. It is first come, first serve. Not "reserved" as the owner told us. During busy times in Telluride, particularly when the neighboring lodge is full, be prepared to stalk the streets for someone to pull out of a spot. Then to reach the unit, you cross a dirt/mud path to a wooden foot bridge, which had a winter-worth of snow and ice packed on it when we arrived. Proceed down a long series of well-worn wooden decks, up several small steps, and then one large staircase, in total nearly 75 yards. Not easy unloading of a family car worth of luggage given that you are at 10,0000 feet. When you reach the unit, climb another full staircase to reach the main level. Reversing this path each day in ski boots is not the simplest journey, and quite treacherous if it has snowed on the stairs and deck. There is no ski storage, so we left our skis in the car and grabbed them on the nearly 3 block walk from the door of the unit to the gondola. It is not 1 block as the owner told us. The unit itself is of a decent size, but you have to use the lower bedroom as your ski boot changing area, as the foyer is only about 2 ft by 3 ft wide. The loft upstais if really only suited to adolescents/teens, as the staircase is more like a ladder and there is very little headroom or moving around space beside the bed. Overall furnishings do not match the high quality of finishes. Living room furniture is very streamlined and definitely not a place to "sink into" after a long day on the slopes. The master bed has no headboard, low quality linens and is only a queen size. Finally, the owner provides a code to the hot tub at the neighboring lodge. The people at the lodge, however, state the the hot tub is for their guests only, not the condo guests. Besides, the hot tube is a vintage 1970s wooden model and looks every bit of its 30+ year age. Unlike the other reviewers, we found the owners a bit hard to reach. They only provided email addresses, and prior to our arrival, our emails requesting check in info went unanwered for 5 days. They do not hav -- 3 of them -- and do not have a local contact to reach in telluride. The phone number they provided went straight to voicemail.

                            Recommended for: Adventure seekers.

                            Manager response: Remedy: When Joe expressed concern about his ability to walk to our home we offered two options: 1) We offered to re-locate him and his family. We are members of The River Club, a full-service, members-only vacation club located on the river trail. This property has heated parking, valet to the gondola and around town, and the concierge will grocery shop for guests. Joe declined to exercise this option. 2) We also offered to re-rent our condo thereby relieving Joe from having to fulfill the terms of his rental contract. He agreed to this option. Communication: We sent entry instructions 2 weeks before his arrival. We left the country shortly thereafter, returning 48 hours before his arrival. He admitted that our email had probably gone into a spam folder that was too full to search in. We typed a new set of instructions on our phone and sent them immediately. They entered our home without incident. From that time on we were in daily contact. Location: Telluride is located at 8,000 ft. above sea-level. This poses a challenge to those traveling from sea-level & those who are not used to walking. Please let us know about any special needs, mobility concerns, etc. We have had guests from the newly-walking to folks in their 80s who have not been challenged by access to our property. Our location increases the value of the property as it is tranquil, sunny and has great views. Properties closer to the street are often noisier and less private and one cannot hear the river. Gondola: It is approximately 1 block to the gondola across the river and down the river trail. Through the streets it is approximately 2-2 ½ blocks. Accomplished skiers can ski in/out. We do have a reserved ski locker on the ground level of the complex. Parking: Our parking is reserved “W” parking. Most park, walk, and never move their cars as it is a small town. Hot Tub: The hot tub is co-owned by the Manitou B&B and the Manitou condo assoc. The hot tub has new paint, a new metal roof, and is professionally maintained. All buildings have new roofs; decking and stairs are being replaced in Spring 2013. Furnishings: The furniture is contemporary and mid-range (Blue Dot; Design Within Reach; Pottery Barn) and well cared for. The mattress in the MBR is similar to a Tempur-Pedic, but better: it’s organic material does not emit toxic fumes. We encourage all future guests to contact us with any questions they may have regarding this posting. All the best, Michael & Jill

                            We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It served our needs as a family very well. The place was fully as described and the owners are people who I would do business with anytime. I think the best thing we can say is that we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

                            We took a two family ski trip for Spring Break and had an awesome time... this was our first trip to Telluride and we LOVE this mountain!... very small crowds compared to most CO resorts, never ran into any long lift lines... we had 2 couples and 2 kids in our group and this place worked out great... very comfortable layout, everyone had their own space... location can't be beat, my husband skied in off Mine Shaft at the end of each day and the rest of us took the gondola... owner provided hotel amenities (soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc.), parking pass, and other conveniences, which was a nice touch... will definitely be back next year...

                            Spent 5 days here and loved it. Ideal location. We've stayed in Mountain Village on previous trips and friends suggested we try staying at Manitou Riverhouse. Great advice. This condo is just as beautiful as advertised. Elegantly appointed with a warm, homey feel. Very convenient to all restaurants, shops and sledding in the park.

                            Our family came for the 4th of July week and had a wonderful stay. The place is in beautiful condition, very well-maintained, and convenient to everything. It has a really good vibe. You can tell the owners really put a lot of care into it. Lots of big windows in every room give it a really warm feel. Jill and Michael were very helpful and gave us several great tips for things to do with kids. Our favorites included ice cream floats after the parade and buying worms at the hardware store for the fishing pond. We definitely plan to return!

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: We live in beautiful Santa Fe, NM and love spending all our free time at our cozy, riverside home in the heart of Telluride.

                          Why Manitou Riverhouse:
                          We chose this property after many years of looking at real estate in Telluride. The incredible in-town location, only one block from the gondola, with ski-in/ski-out access makes all winter activities a breeze. In summer, festivals are a short walk to town park along the river trail.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          With windows wide open to the cool mountain breezes, we can hear the sweet sounds of the San Miguel river. All of this in a home that was beautifully remodeled in a 'studs-out' renovation.
