  • 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"

  • Beautiful, clean house with amazing amenities!

    "This house was perfect for our weekend getaway! Beautiful views, clean and comfortable, and fun additions to the house make it ideal for anyone who's looking for a beautiful trip to the mountains. The hot tub was perfect for star gazing, the rooms were comfortable and spacious, the kitchen had everything you need for cooking in, and there's even a game room upstairs if you don't feel like venturing out! The location is tucked away enough to feel private but close enough to local highways make a trip to Crested Butte a breeze! We would highly recommend this cabin!"
