  • Amazing property and amazing location

    "This penthouse condo is perfect for a group of 2 families with children. There are 2 master suites with high-end furniture, fixtures, bathrooms. The upstairs bedroom and bonus room with luxury sofabed are perfect for children. The appliances are topnotch, the kitchen is fully stocked, and the layout is perfect. The elevator opens up directly into the unit which is nice. The ski locker area downstairs is so convenient. The location of the condo is an easy 3 minute walk (even with young children) to the market and gondola station. Or you can ski in to the end of the street/driveway off Double Cabins ski run. Can't ask for a better location. Paige and Bruce were so helpful throughout our stay and in planning for our trip. We can't wait to come back next year!"

  • Another great stay in a great home!

    "This was our third stay at this house and we just can't bear to leave. The stay at the house with those majestic views make is as much fun at Telluride's activities. It's great to know we don't need to look around when we are planning a trip to Telluride."
