    "We stayed here a few years ago, and I am pleased to see you guys still here! This was a vacation to remember, Silverton Railroad, Animas Forks, Durango -whitewater rafting,Pagosa Springs, and rented a boat on the lake and let my son drive it all day(NO TRAFFIC)! My sister and 8yr old son and I thoroughly enjoyed it! He is 11 now and still talks of the deck/overlook! Wonderful,friendly hosts and even a bear in the back yard! The property/gardens are BEAUTIFUL! Everything clean and in good working order. I would have written this long ago but just got internet out here in the sticks . If this place were larger I would say 'bring everyone you know'. Thank You for a truly wonderful stay !!!!"

  • Love this condo!

    "My family of 4 has stayed here for the past 2 years for our Spring Break. We have skied in Telluride for 7 years and have stayed at many places until we found this condo. The location is the best in Mountain Village! Easy to get out on the slopes and a great small hill for the kids to sled after the slopes shut down. We have only been during the winter but we are hoping to get back during the summer. The owners are so helpful and we were able to meet them this year! We will be back very soon!"

  • Beautiful home -family of four loved it and location to areas National Parks.

    "Mesa Verde cliff dwellings was our primary focus when searching for a house. Location was good but the house and offerings were the icing on the cake. Hot tub after hiking was fantastic. Very clean and modern. Two bedrooms and an extra HIGH QUALITY self inflating/deflating mattress was great with teenage kids. Patios and tables galore.. more than we could use in a few days. Separate observation deck for night sky viewing was nice. Many restaurants and grocery in town nearby. Many good destinations close by for day tripping and using as a base camp for a week."

  • Caught 12 Trout Right Out The Back Door

    "They were both Rainbows and the infamous Gunnison River Browns. I would have caught more but we fished 3 other rivers and went white water rafting. We were able to land the raft right out back at the house which was cool because you can go through the Gunnison river whitewater park right before. This place has a great floor plan too. It was very well accommodated with gas for the grill and firewood for both fire places. We saw the deer literally all over the yard too, pretty cool. Thanks for a great time - I am sure we will be back! Chad"
