  • great location for skiers and non skiers

    "We truly enjoyed our time here in this condo. The location was perfect for getting a little one to ski school, as well as having places to play with a toddler. Our adult skiers enjoyed being able to ski in to eat lunch, then back out to the slopes. Picked this place for its location, and it didn't disappoint! It was perfect for our family."

  • can't beat the location!!

    "i spent spring break in this house with my 3 sons (ages 8, 12 and 15) and my husband! came to ski telluride…but we really enjoy staying in town. we couldn't have chosen better as far as location! this house is SO CLOSE to the gondola that takes you up to mountain village, it's ridiculous...literally less than a block! an easy walk even in ski boots hauling skis/poles/etc. no one complained and mom and dad never had to help carry a thing! also great location for heading up to main street and the surrounding area for dinner or shopping…not more than a 5 minute walk anywhere we went. the place itself is nice too…nice, comfy beds…well stocked kitchen. if i had to find anything "wrong" with it, i'd say there are a LOT of stairs…which were tough on legs tired from skiing. ;) the showers are a little small and tight…the living room area is not very large…and there aren't any TVs in the "kid rooms" downstairs…but everything was still plenty accommodating for our family. very nice washer and dryer that we used often as well. and the property manager was SO NICE…very patient when we had some trouble with our deposit going to the wrong place…went out of her way to find it and make sure we were all set. overall, a great rental experience at a great price…i recommend!"

  • Great Cabin!

    "This is a great cabin in Lake City! The pictures and information accurately describe the cabin. We have stayed here twice during the Fall season over the last couple of years, and we will definitely return. The cabin is super clean thanks to the owners who truly care for their cabins and for their guests. It is very adequately stocked with nice kitchen appliances, cooking utensils, bath items, etc. so just bring your jacket, clothes and any food/condiments/etc. that you might want. There is a little grocery store just down the road if you need to buy anything for cooking. There is a nice picnic table and charcoal grill on one side of the cabin. We cooked or grilled every night of our stay. The bed in the loft is very comfortable which is something we always appreciate when we are away from home. The bathroom is very nice and clean. This cabin is cozy and comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting in front of a nice fire in the fireplace each morning. We sat out on the front deck each evening after fishing, and one evening we were visited by a deer just a few feet away as she walked through the area eating grass! We had a great time! We love the Lake City area, and this cabin is a great place to stay!"
