  • Great unit.

    "Very nice unit. Clean and nice amenities. Easy company to work with. Great location next to bus stop. Easy to get to downtown and lifts. Pool/hot tub close at 9:30, bummer, lots of kids at pool. First floor with view opposite of mountain."

  • scenic and comfortable

    "A very comfortable, well situated, house for a large family group of different ages, with the advantage of having the support of the Cascade Village community, and being close to the Mountain Resort, less than five minutes away by car. The views of the mountain range are spectacular and pervasive, and you get the experience of the clean, high altitude air, with the many activities available, from hiking to zip lining, to rafting and horseback riding. The owner and his local support group were very accommodating, and the property was extremely clean and well maintained."

  • Beautiful views -- Fantastic property

    "My Husband and our 2 Labrador Retrievers embarked on a cross country/continent road trip in April and decided on Telluride as our western slope stop. We are so glad we did. The town is its self a throwback to what towns used to be. Charming and caring of its residents, communal in the very meaning of the word. The house is situated perfectly in town - walk to everything - we were there for just over 2 weeks and we used the car one time. The beds are all very comfortable - never had a bad night sleep. The master bedroom has an amazing view of the mountains - i was happy to wake with the birds to see this view every morning. Denise was so helpful and accommodating during our stay - recommending restaurants - dog friendly hikes and bike rides. We had one issue with the toilet and she had it addressed and fixed with in hours. Every room is comfortable and outfitted well. We did not cook much but the kitchen is well outfitted and contemporary. Must eats: Brown Dog Pizza - best we've had outside of NYC, Butcher and the Baker - breakfast must go - Siam - amazing Thai food, Last Dollar and New Sheridan great Old West bars. And of course the french restaurant right at the bottom of the stairs - outstanding food and service all around. Our experience here and with Denise and the house has made us want to spend every summer in Telluride. Carrie"

  • Awesome pad and great location

    "The Miners Cabin was the perfect spot for our Crested Butte adventures. The size was perfect for the 3 of us, with the space being optimized, clean, and cleverly designed. We also really enjoyed the hot tub, sauna, and private deck/garden. Crested Butte is my favorite mountain town in North America, and the Miners Cabin is the perfect locale to explore it all, while being walking distance from the action on Elk Ave. We'll be back!"
